I think we need a "secretary" to go through and chronical all these ideas that are being thrown in.


I went through and came up with this,
Era between ROTS and ANH
Wilderness on the edge of the city
A wall that divides the wilderness from the city
A town with an imperial outpost/garrision
A local "police force" allied with the empire
An imperial patrol in the wilderness
A guerillia force in the town, sort of a precursor to the full rebellion
A guerilla base in the wilderness
A possible imperial outpost done by Owen
Tatooine style(concerning inhabitants)
Lots of crime
Possible buildings: Catianas, rebel strongholds, crime lord palaces, shops, hangars, spaceport
That's all I saw so far.

EDIT:  Dressel Rebel, C4 is in LA.

Well ****.  If you want to do Planet Dressel with Dresselian guerrillas taking out stormies, we're already 80% there  ;)

However, being in L.A., i'm out. 

Good luck.

What's teamspeak?



Teamspeak is a chat room service via microphone. I use it all the time for online gaming and it works pretty well. I'll email you soon. :)

I think it'd be cool if we were to make a few poster boards that have the name or nickname and a picture of everyone who participates that way everybody gets the credit they deserve. :)

There are still plenty of ways you could help even if you can't go. :)

I know it's still early, but one thing I think it would be nice to decide on is what phase of Imperial armor the troops will have... I think it should be consitent...

Should it be Phase 2 as seen in ROTS, or the helmets the Stormtroopers wear in the OT?  I'd love for them to have on OT helmets, but realize getting Phase 2 troopers would be a lot easier.  Plus those are really damn popular.

Really awesome idea. Just had the time to go through the post now. I would love to help in anyway I can.

How about a Jedi purge type time frame after ROTS. Have a band of Jedi chased by the 501st and maybe Vader too? Or somthing like that. I like the town them too. Jedi staged revolt on some back water planet.

This is cool. I can't wait to get some things lock down and see the work.

In stead of going fanfic there is a city that fits all of these requirements but you can go your own way on alot of it as it is from the novels.

Coronet City on Corellia.

Has an Imperial Endorsed government- Diktat Governor-General/Sector Moff
Has a local police allied with Imps- Corellian Security Force/One CorSec Plaza HQ
Part of the birth of the Rebellion- Corellian Treaty/Garm Bel Iblis
Criminals- Com'n everyone knows about Corellian Smugglers and Moff Firly Vorru's Golden Age
Wilderness- Seaside city and has woods areas around it- Corellian Sand Panther as a possible
creature for someone to design.
Coronet Space Port for the hangars and Space port area.
As for structures you can go pretty much your own way.  But we should make the Treasure Ship Row market place and all of its interesting Characters that would fit a Tatooine feel.
And you can easily make it in the ROTS-ANH era
As for a jedi purge CorSec was used to hunt down fugitive Jedi

The only images of Coronet are in comics but we all know how inaccurate and contradictory they can be i.e. ARC trooper.  So we have a lot of free reign in this one plus it is a recognizable place- Han Solo's home town, (young 9-12 year old Han Solo Figure anyone?).

Vader:Which is

Personally I'd love for it to be OT. Clones are good and all but it is the 30th aniversary next year and I think OT would fit the occasion better. I'm sure we could round up enough VOTC Stormtroopers and SAGA2 Sandies or Biker Scouts to make for a sizeable enough Imperial army. Besides it really only needs to be a small outpost not a full battillion of troopers. The more and more I think about it 1 Ping pong table will not be nearly enough space to fit in everything we are talking about making. I think we are going to need around 2 or 3.

You did some hybrid troopers, mixing them between the prequel and OT... i think that would work beautifully for this.
That way w arent just repainting clones, we are transitioning them. Any Stormtroopers would be the "first batch" of these new model troopers.

SWEETness... 4 pages already, lol.. I'd love to help on this, I was actually thinking about this last night, one thing I'd like to see done is make sure we have someone incharge of certain things like the certain "armies" or types of "people" we'll have populating the diorama.
One thing I'd hate is for thngs to get started and when people start submit, you get 100 people sending you clone trooeprs with plaint splotches thrown on them...

I say get a couple "Team Leaders", have them incharge of certain factions, and set limits..
I'm not too versed in GAR military procedures and specifications(though, I have a insider somewhere that has some stuff in it)... but I'd like to see a cap on the amount of troops.
I'm all for the time frame between RotS and the OT, and if you think about it, it'd be perfect cause of what they'll have in store for us at C4(the new animated series and the live action series)...
I'd be all for helping out getting things started and sorted out... I'm a stay-at-home-dad, I only work part time on Tuesdays and the weekends... so I'd have the time.


I like Chewies idea about Owens work.. and I'd be all for chipping in a good $50 for it.. but like someone stated, I think there should be a cap on that.

I think before we continue to throw out ideas, we decide on the 2 main things...TIME PERIOD and PLANET.
Once we get those settled, I think we can go from there...
How about a couple polls on the different boards to get that settled and then we can move on?

I think this could be a good idea.. maybe we could all agree on a set look, that way they look semi-uniform... lol.. amd maybe have a couple stragglers off to the side...
I could see a Jango series, all old and grey sitting in a cantina drinking away his sorrows, lol.

Hmmmm.... I have some Commtech Stormies that I wasn't sure what to do with, maybe I'll try and customize them a bit to see if you guys like the look I come up with.

OK publicity for this project is up, over at www.thesithempire.net so hopefully we'll get a few more people in on this thing.
