I am assuming my character to be more of a guest character for some point in time when you (redeadlink) want him in.

Name: ???
Race: Mon Calimari

Bio: went and completed officer school but found that there where many others better then he was and felt that his skills where better put to use as a pilot. Craft of choice obviously being the B wing.

Sorry for the lateness!

Jason Marisel is a human pilot. Both his father Voth Marisel and younger brother Dolren were also Rebels, before they were killed in action. Jason hopes to eventually work in more of a coordinating role in outer-space battles, but for now his skills are put to good use as a fighter pilot.

He is a more calculating and patient type than the typical cocky fighter pilot. This is not for lack of instinct, but more out of a desire for efficiency. He has gained a reputation for being the last guy to take any action in a fight, waiting for the perfect time to strike and then doing some serious damage. He flies an A-Wing.

Are people still interested in this?

And if you aren't, tell me what I could do better next time.

Honestly dude, I think it had little to do with your actual game and more to do with the format. I can't speak for everyone, but I find it really hard to stay invested in a play-by-post, regardless of whether the game is fun or not.

Try to run a tabletop game, seriously. I don't know if I'll have a lot of free time this academic year, so I can't promise that I'll play. But I think you'd have better luck running a game with real people in front of you, with jokes and snacks and dice and all that dun stuff. The social aspect really gets lost in a PBP.

Yeah, I think the format is really where the problem lies. I think you'd get much better results from the game if we were doing this around a tabletop.

Alrighty then. I ended the PbP campaign, but I think I'll keep my original script, tweak it a bit and turn it into some fanfic.

Hope you enjoyed the little bit that did happen as much as I did.

And exit stage right.
