I’m currently working on my own PT and I’m starting to flesh out the storyline. I’ve hammered out the basic timeline and suchlike and now begins the real work. I have my core plots for each of the three stories and now I need to fill them in, develop them further, figure out the character interactions and personalities beyond the core.
So for now this thread is just for me to put up my work as I progress and hopefully get feedback that will improve it.
EPISODE I: KNIGHTS OF THE REPUBLIC
The THIRD GREAT CLONE WAR has consumed the galaxy! The inexhaustible supply of clone soldiers ravage the Republic, and only the intervention of the Jedi Order, guardians of peace and justice within the Republic, has proved able to stem the tide.
Despite this, after a decade of conflict the ranks of the JEDI KNIGHTS have grown thin, and so a push to recall and re-enlist retired or discharged Jedi Knights is underway.
Obi-Wan Kenobi, a famed Republic General and Jedi Knight, is currently en route to his former comrade to convince him to rejoin the Republic military. However, on his arrival planetside the General and his companions are ambushed by the newest and most deadly CLONE WARRIORS…
Date: 38 Before ANH
Act 1: Tatooine [Anakin’s Homeplanet]
Act 2: Nar Urthha [Hutt Cartel Capital]
Act 3: Granicus [Confederacy Cloning World]
Obi-Wan Kenobi [35 years old]
A veteran fighter involved in this Clone War since it began a decade ago. Holds the rank of General of Special Forces, and is in charge of the Aquillaean Rangers, a group of Force-adept commandos who didn’t make the grade for Jedi training but have basic Force abilities to enhance their senses, reaction times, speed and endurance. He cares deeply for all of his soldiers, but he has become tired of the war and so has been allocated a strictly non-combat mission to prevent him from burning out. This recuperative mission is supposed to be strictly negotiation: first with his former comrade Anakin and secondly with the Hutt Cartel to gain access to their restricted hyperspace lanes.
Too bad he’s got a bad feeling about this…
Anakin Whitesun [29 years old]
A skilled Jedi Knight who was discharged from the Jedi Order after he abandoned a mission in order to return to his home planet to help his sister Beru out of a sticky situation. He saved her and her husband Owen but in exchange he became an indentured employee of the Hutt Cartel, working as an enforcer and a freighter operator for them. Most of what he does is probably legal, but he operates on the shady side occasionally too. Brash, a bit reckless, extremely brave, passionate and a skilled starfighter racer, he actually enjoys the comfort and minor fame of being favoured by his Hutt employers, but even if he disliked it he’d never leave because it would place his family in danger.
And to Anakin there’s nothing in this galaxy he treasures more than family…
Zara Arcadia [25 years old]
Anakin’s companion and owner of the hotted-up spice freighter Skywalker, she only allows Anakin to be her navigator thanks to his instinctual astrogation abilities. And the fact that the ship used to be his before she won it in a game of sabbacc. Cool, collected and always ready to deflate Anakin’s ego if he starts getting too full of himself, she works on contract with the Hutts and is one of the best smugglers around. Unlike most of her fellow scoundrels Zara would love to be out in the thick of the action of the Clone Wars.
A conflict which to her seems both distant and romantic in its scope, full of exciting new experiences…
Darth Vader [22 years old (biologically), ~2 years old (chronologically)]
An Augmented Transgenic Humanoid Analogue clone warrior, Darth is an experimental Force-sensitive clone who has been flash-imprinted with the skills of a fallen Jedi. Due to highly dangerous genetic splicing Darth is a consummate warrior, bestowed with all sorts of predatory advantages. However due to corruption within his genome he requires cybernetic implants to allow him to breathe and correctly filter visual-spectrum light. He relentlessly pursues Obi-Wan after his initial ambush fails, but when he is abandoned by his ATHA Prime genetic template, his “clone father” so to speak, and left for execution by Republic warriors it becomes clear that he is too valuable to kill and too powerful in the Force to simply treat as a prisoner of war.
If only there were a wise and war-weary Jedi Knight who could train a being bred only for combat how to utilise his talents in other ways…
Zeta Magnus [??? years old]
A towering Arkanian hulk of a being, Zeta Magnus is one of the main Clone Masters supplying the Confederacy of Corporate Sectors with the disposable clone soldiers, and is also a key instigator of the Clone War itself. A corrupt and ruthless trader baron whose company, Spaarti Creations, was being financially harmed by the economic sanctions put in place by the Republic, he was a key figure in creating the war itself and now profits off the sales of his clone soldiers. Aside from being a dirty businessman, Zeta Magnus is also a genius scientist who is responsible for the creation of the Augmented Transgenic Humanoid Analogue clones, and who is addressed by his creations as their “clone father” or their “ATHA Prime”.
If left unchecked, Zeta’s depravity will drag the Clone Wars to an even darker and more twisted level of madness…
