The Star Wars RP The Fifth Timeline: Species In order to avoid any problems people might run into with this when we start the timeline on Tuesday, since we were late in the game with deciding about the five character limit too, I wanted to give you a quick update about some species that won't be allowed. This is by no means a complete list, and it also includes an important non-sentient one, but it's a start. The following species will not be allowed: Ysalamir Yuuzhan Vong (temporarily, see explanation below) Taung Shi'ido Gen'Dai Those are really the big ones for now. Shi'ido can be pretty overpowered, but other shapeshifters are fine within reason. The Taung are obvious because they went extinct thousands of years ago. Ysalamir won't be allowed due to the risk for abuse with them, and we don't think it's right to be able to use a species that basically negates the natural advantages of a Force user over a non-Force user -- though there will be rules for the use of Force powers to prevent a Force user from just pummeling you in one post. Gen'Dai are just absurdly over powered. As for the Vong, they're temporarily not allowed, but will be allowed in the coming weeks after the timeline begins. We don't feel like we should completely bar them, but there are some issues with them that will need to be rectified and that will take a bit of extra time. So, we made it a priority to figure out the important parts of the timeline rather than the Vong, and we'll sort that out once the timeline is up and running. More species will very likely be added to that list, but those are important ones I wanted to make sure people were aware of before Tuesday. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, feel free to let us know.
