This is probably my tenth appeal for assistance from modders in this community, while I can make some progress with due diligence myself, to complete a TC on the scale of this one requires a large amount of work even for a group as big as the Reloaded Team.

In terms of scale of changes the game changes will be of a rather extreme variety, a new and intuitive interface for the Raporan faction, and a modified interface for the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances. New movies, sounds and models will be required, as will cards and string changes to the actual game. Unlike Reloaded I plan on releasing a series of updates from the games first fully playable version onward, but achieving that first playable version will be most difficult.

But first an answer to some questions:

What are the Rapora Wars?

Rapora Wars is a fan fiction plot for episodes VII-IX of the Star Wars Universe. The story explains many of the problems which have been created between the Expanded Universe and the Movies by George Lucas, including Anakin Skywalker's status as the Chosen One, the continual survival of the Sith for over a millennia, Emperor Palpatine's birth and history, as well as explaining and encompassing a number of conflicts and theories brought forth by Timothy Zahn's books, specifically who exactly do the chiss fear, and how big a threat they are. The answer to all of these questions has been linked to a previously unknown race of beings from the unknown regions, called the Rapora.

Who are the Rapora?

The Rapora are a race of beings which have a bipedal frame, reptilian features, carnivorous habits, force abilities, and a fanatical devotion to the dark side of the force. Their history can be traced back thousands of years before the formation of the Old Republic, under the reign of the Infinite Empire (First revealed in KOTOR). Then the Rapora were breed as the force sensitive military arm of that Empire and fell upon hard times during its downfall.

Its downfall had been caused by the emergence of the first Jedi Knights, a group which managed to overthrown the Empire, scatter its remnants, and create the first inkling of freedom in the Galaxy. The Rapora suffered as a result, hidden away in the unknown regions with only a few thousand of them remaining they settled down and began to bide their time, planning for an eventual return, a return that would take over 10,000 years to initiate.

The Rapora had remained a somewhat low level threat until the waning days of the Old Republic, when Senator Palpatine, known to the Rapora as the Timeless One, brokered an exchange of technology between the Rapora and the Trade Federation, an exchange that turned out to be a one way deal. Over five hundred Droidekas were sold to them, along with their design specs, over five decades these evolved into the Raporan Droideka'kar, a battle droid reputed to be able to decimate enemies as advanced as Jedi.

The Rapora began a military build up for the next fifty years, that was only interupted by a surprise attack by chiss commander Mith'raw'nuruodo which forced them to delay their return until over thirty years after Endor. This same incident was the final straw that caused the chiss leadership that led to his dismissal and transfer to the Empire.

After Yuuzhan Vong invasion was repulsed by the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances, and a series of attacks by the Rapora’s onetime allies the Killik, the Rapora began to move. Their first victim was the Vagaari Federation, a loose coalition of warrior states that held an area of space roughly equal to the Hutt’s claim in the unknown regions. After a few short battles the Vagaari were defeated by an internal coupe and a prorapora government control, with that the Vagaari effectively became the Rapora’s puppets. Their vast, though less advanced fleet would form the bulk of the Rapora’s forces in the coming war.

Next the Rapora struck the Empire of the Hand’s command center at Nirauan, killing Admiral Voss Parck, the faction’s leader. They swiftly moved on to the Chiss world of Csilla where they destroyed the planet with an enormous directed plasma weapon called a Raporan Replicator. Using the raw material of the planet the Replicator began producing more vessels for the war effort and focused its attention on their next aim an attempt to incapacitate the Galactic Federation of Free Alliances and the Imperial Remnant. They nearly succeeded, Bastion, and Bilbringi are in ruins and the GFFA shipyards of Kuat were destroyed in a viscous battle, the GFFA fleet has been cut to shreds by the Raporan onslaught and must rebuild. It is at this point that the TC will begin.


You said that this will touch on Anakin Skywalker’s ultimate fate, and Palpatine’s birth and history, how?

[i]You may have noticed that thus far Lucas hasn’t provided the actual text of the prophecy, and I believe he quite possibly never will, but this begs the question of what Lucas did release, is the force in balance at the end of Return of the Jedi? The answer to my mind is quite simply no, the power and control has merely shifted to the other side, there is no true balance between the two, and ergo Anakin Skywalker’s work isn’t finished.

So we have created something of a riddle in the story, what was the prophecy? Well, we’re not sure but we have decided to infer a new and hidden meaning to some of the lines from the films. At one point Anakin says, “I will conquer death!â€

No time... Even my contributions to Reloaded have shrunk down considerably. Sorry, Stellar.

All of the above?

Trying toget C++ into my head, trying to satisfy a teacher the we unaffectively call Di-Ma, the Hutt. Entering the world of impossible Integrals and other mutlivariable crap, realearning basic electronics stuff (damn you Ohm, Kirchoff et al), 'preparing' myself for the practical admission test for graphic design, and last but not least, helping with the organization of Costa Rican events for Episode III and finally, planning a coup d'etat against the Costa Rican government and plotting world domination.

EDIT: And finding a girl...

Kaja, glad you stopped in, I'm sorry I overlooked you earlier, go ahead and read through Rapora Wars, some of it is interesting reading, the sheer bulk of material needed for this RPG means that even if you're absolutely horrid, I'd gladly accept your help. So could you send me or post here an example of any art you've done...wait that logo you did yourself...hmm. Can you draw a droideka? We're going to have a variation on the destroyer droid design (Droideka), called the Droideka'kar... You've probably read about it in the RPG already (It may even appear on page 1). Thats something you might be able to do.

I'm currently working on the Raporan ship cards...Trej, Mad, you're going to love this...

The first step in getting the Vareme class Supercruiser in game is complete, I give you the bland black and white sketch of the Rapora's largest capital ship.
Image
For size comparison, the cylinderical bridge at the upper back of the the vessel is about the length of an Imperial Star Destroyer...thats one big sucker. :twisted:

EDIT: I'm done, check it out!

Wow, that is big... anyway...

Can I draw a droideka, Hmmnn, I don't think so, but I'm working on a Picture of Comet, the one from the Clone wars RPG, I'll Scan it and post it, Human form of him, I have very, very, very many versions of him. I also have a Starfighter for him, if you want I could post his History, his background, stuff like that... Back to the point, The logo is my very first GIF file. I have photo shop 6, with Image Ready, Scanner, Computer, Art tools, and Free Time, the thing most people have little of, And I'm talking about allot of free time, Hours, and Hours of it... Currently I'm sick, I have been for a Long time, since February, It started off as a little minor sickness, then it died off, Then it came back as a full force sickness, I haven't been outside for weeks, Mucus, Cough... A nasty cough, sore throat, every time I swallow it hurts, can't eat very much, for the three days I was in a chair, watching tv, All day long, now, as it gets better, i'm doing more and more stuff, but I'm still inside, and with my Mom's Transplant I have to stay away from her... It's just terrible. I hate it...... ANYWAY, about this Rapora TC, I'll get in some art soon, the picture of Comet, and I'll make some more Pictures to show you. I'll get you those pictures, Soon.

---UPDATE---

Another ship card moves from in the in progress state to the done state.

Image
The Kar Lur class Cruiser is the mainstay of the Rapora fleet, capable of engaging any foe fielded by the GFFA. This exceptional firepower comes primarily from the two superheavy plasma cannons mounted on its side. Each one is capable of bulling through the toughest of shields to cause devastating damage to its opponents.

In the RPG four of these ships destroyed an Executor class Star Destroyer in a single volley (During the battle of Bastion) They're approxamentally the same size as a Imperial Class but significantly faster then an Imperial II and more maneuverable.
