(I know I said this month would be EU, but I figured this could be an exception. Come on, don't tell me none of you saw this coming. )
Hi everyone, and welcome to a special You Build the Character.
Since the launch of the last YBtC, we've had one of the biggest bombshells ever to hit the Star Wars fan community. Despite George Lucas having repeatedly said that he had no intention to make any films beyond Return of the Jedi, the Flannelled One has hung up his clapperboard and sold Lucasfilm to Disney, who have every intention of keeping the movies coming, starting with the long-anticipated Sequel Trilogy.
In three years, Star Wars: Episode VII will be in cinemas.
Your challenge is to build a character from Episode VII. There's no limit but your imagination. Any material outside of the movies and The Clone Wars can be used or disregarded entirely as you see fit. Any character is allowed, whether they're an OT character updated for a new era, an EU character adapted to a new medium, or a completely new character heralding the dawn of a new age.
You can even enter multiple times, provided you follow the rules below.
You have until 11.59pm (PDT) on Thursday 13 December to post your RPG stats, and any notes you want to post explaining your decisions. Once submissions have closed, all forum members will have until 11.59pm (PT) on Thursday 27 December to vote for their favourite. Whichever build receives the most votes will win.
The prize for winning is having your stats enshrined in the YBtC Hall of Fame, as well as the bragging rights.
The following rules apply to all submissions:
- All builds must be created according to RAW, with no house rules (no single Athletics skill, no bonus feats for bloodlines etc).
- You may use "unlimited" point buy for ability scores, provided each score is between 3 and 18 at first level (before racial and age adjustments).
- You are free to use material from all official Saga Edition books, up to and including The Unknown Regions.
- You may enter more than once. An entry can consist of up to three characters. Each individual forum post containing stat blocks counts as an entry unless otherwise specified.
- You may not enter more than one set of stats for the same character.
- When creating stat blocks, use the species traits from official WotC sources. If a species never received official stats, you may create your own, but make sure to include them with your stat block.
- You may change your stats at any point up until submissions close, at which point any edited stats will be disqualified.
