Casting Call ~ Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith Rewrite
 
Ok many of you will say "Oh my god, why do this?", well I feel that Episode 3 was weak in some spots, maybe because of film time they had to be cut short and all but I've had this urge to maybe change it to something else. Ask yourselves, who among you laughed in the scene were Darth Vader yells "NO!!!!!"? If you didn't then you're part of the happy few and if you did laugh then you're one of the...many.

So basically I need some courageous people to try this and I need some roles to be filled first:

Anakin Skywalker (Me because I'm also doing Padme)
Obi-Wan Kenobi
Count Dooku
Palpatine/Sidious
Mace Windu
Bail Organna
Jar Jar Binks (yes as annoying as you can be with him the better and truer)
General Grievous
and all others you might think of but now come one character that requires effort from a studied and great RPer:
YODA
Why? because Yoda must sound, move, think and act as closely as the way we have come to love about him.

Now, I don't make the story entirely on my own, you can insert stuff that you would like to have seen and we can discuss it here, also if you feel that this will go nowhere, then also let me know, feedback is always a good thing being good or bad, just don't flame if you can :D

Original Characters are also a posibility but try going for prefab characters first please. :D

DeadYorick 05-10-2007 10:43 PM

Can I request Obi-wan? Also can we create new plot points and other changes to the plot?

Grace 05-10-2007 11:38 PM

Heh... alright, I'll go for Yoda... I mean... *clears throat* Go for Yoda, I will!

It's rare for me to play a guy, but this is an interesting challenge... besides, "Man? Man, I am not! Small, green, alien, man, I am!" So, yeah. Sounds like a fun challenge :)

Shana 05-10-2007 11:44 PM

Yes you can request Obi-Wan Terracentral but since Obi-Wan is so involved in the story I need you around a lot. And very good Grace, Yoda is yours.

About the plot points, we can discuss that here and so long as they don't deviate from the original concept then you can go ahead.

DeadYorick 05-11-2007 12:33 AM

No Worries Miracle. I can be on the forum if I can get really commited

The Doctor 05-12-2007 11:47 AM

I'll take Palpatine/Sidious, if that's alright.

Black Knight of Keno 05-12-2007 11:57 AM

Bah. To be Yoda I wanted. All fools, you are.

Now I'll just have to take Windu so I can kick some Palpy ass

Shana 05-12-2007 12:04 PM

Sure both of you are great Rp players this will be interesting :D any other takers?

Black Knight of Keno 05-12-2007 12:10 PM

The only question is that how far are we going to go with the rewriting? Cna we change battle places, the generals sent or just otherwise take notice of things that the characters didn't see in the movies. It's hard to follow the movie plot at all when you know what will happen and when not knowing exactly what happened in between of scenes.

Also, are we going to see a Jedi Purge at the end or is it completely up to us?

Shana 05-12-2007 12:25 PM

Well we are writing it so it doesn't have to be following the movie, we can change battle places and everything but the general idea must remain, there are inescapeable events like the jedi purge and the council's confrontation with Palpatine when they discover him as Sidious also the confrontation between Obi-Wan and Grievous I don't know what you guys think but I feel must stay to build up Anakin's resentment but we can definately add or chage it if you guys feel like it.

Aliies 05-14-2007 02:54 AM

Since all my first choices are taken, I'll go for another not one the list: Kit Fisto :)
He's a bit like me, an eccentric nature with a warm sense of humor. He seems to have a major role and one of the most respected Jedi during the Clone Wars.

Black Knight of Keno 05-14-2007 07:09 AM

Should we decide how are we going to do this so we can start this RP up? And by that I mean should we rewrite the whole thing and be able to alter the course of history, disregarding the Original Trilogy, or should we just be confined by the OT in the major things while being able to do some little things different?

I propose a vote as Miracle hasn't done so yet :P

Also, I'll try to push Flamehart into taking one of the free major characters

Shana 05-14-2007 06:11 PM

Yes a vote is necesary so go ahead people and speak your mind so we can start this.

DeadYorick 05-14-2007 07:29 PM

That would be cool. I would want to change history a little

Aliies 05-15-2007 02:45 AM

yes and make less-prominent characters stand out (Prodominantly Kit Fisto :) )
Not really changing history but adding in the details that were neglected by the big-screen movie, but then again the movie missed a few things, I read that in the novellization of Episode three, My character Kit was decapitated after a slightly longer engagement with Palpatine instead of Block-block then slash through the stomach, poor guy... they made him look like a novice in that movie, he was one of the only Shii-Cho masters :(

Black Knight of Keno 05-15-2007 07:00 AM

I at least vote for forgetting OT to some extent. In that I mean we can persuade Anakin into staying on the light side, even if Palpatine can still continue the Purge of the Jedi Order with the clones or something to that extent. For one I don't want that Windu is betrayed so easily. At least he can make some resistance against Skywalker if he turns to the Dark Side in the end of the RP

DeadYorick 05-15-2007 11:04 AM

in episode 3 the game Windu pulls you through the window and you have to fight him on the roof of another building.

I dont know why people did that but it was a hard battle

Aliies 05-16-2007 01:42 AM

Well, It's great to see that everyone raced to the prominent roles, but I think we need to focus on the Jedi and their roles in the Clone Wars, mainly the masters; Saesee Tiin, Agen Kolar, Mace Windu, Kit Fisto, Ki-Adi-Mundi and many others who fought in the clone wars.

Things like these would only make the movies ridiculously long, we're not working on a restricted time here and alot happend that wasn't mentioned.

Shana 05-16-2007 08:05 PM

Well we are working from the point where Episode 3 begins so the clone wars happened , we can't change them otherwise we'd have to start from Episode 2's ending disregarding the whole clone wars but we would deviate from the concept and there have been lots of Clone wars rps now. We can only focus in the battle of mygeeto with Ki-Adi, Felussia or w/e it was called where Ayla Secura went and the others. but yeah we can give council members a more important role, so if anyone wants to have two characters to make this work you can state who you want and also seems that everyone wants to disregard the OT so we'll work in the alternative where Anakin doesn't fall to the dark side but the purge will happen anyway. How does that sound?

That sounds good Miracle. But then there will be no Vader. Oh well

Sigundr 05-16-2007 11:00 PM

Screw Vader. He had his twenty-nine years of fame.

Aliies 05-17-2007 02:34 AM

Perhaps Anakin falls in another fashion, I feel that the movie's ending was a little crappy in that fact.

Try my version, leads to the same ending:

Instead of Mace Windu going to arrest palpatine when he did and Anakin coming to stop him, make it that Palpatine doesn't reveal himself just yet, tells anakin that his scouts have discovered the location of the separatist base (On Mustafar) and orders him to destroy their leadership and execute all of those responsible for the war, Anakin resists but does not disobey a direct order from the Chancellor and goes. Padme grows worried that he's been acting strange lately (With the visions of her death) and discovers him there with Obi-Wan at her side. At this point, after killing the separatist leadership the Darkside begins to influence him and all his doubts of the council, Obi-Wan and their doubts of his friend the Chancellor combine and he force-chokes his wife after accusing Obi-Wan of turning her against him. Afterwards that is when the still-unrevealled Sidious senses the battle and finds Anakin beside the molten river without an arm and legs, burned alover.

After they transform him into the black suit we all know, he pledges his loyalty to Sideous as he finally tells him who he really is, finally ordering Anakin to attack the Jedi Temple and executing Order 66... after that, Mace Windu and the others come to kill Palpatine for the massacre at the Jedi Temple and the Jedi being hunted down, not arresting him as they already see him as far too great a threat. Instead Anakin is the one that fights the Jedi as Sideous battle Mace Windu, giving him the twisted face from his own force-lightning. Anakin kills the other Jedi including my character Kit Fisto then attacks Mace Windu, who I belive should've had a better chance and they fight, not just Anakin somehow catching a Jedi Master off guard and slicing off his hands, though he does kill him in the end.

overall it has the same ending, just a little more intense...

Black Knight of Keno 05-17-2007 02:53 AM

I like creating our own story along the way better

Aliies 05-17-2007 09:28 AM

I know, it was an idea :)

Shana 05-17-2007 01:43 PM

It's an interesting idea but I would go more with BKK for storytelling purposes otherwise we would have to rely on too much movie material and we already got a lot of that as it is. But for the start of it I need someone to play Grievous and Dooku since we start at the chancellor's kidnapp as it was were the Clone Wars cartoon ended.

steven 05-17-2007 01:58 PM

I'll take both of them (Dook and Grevious). I know I don't haven't really used the Jedi Knight forums for an age and my last attempt could of been better, but I've played both of them before Dooku and Grevious and I'm want join in on this, after my attempt to do this in the Kotor forums didn't go so well like most rpgs there...

Aliies 05-17-2007 09:32 PM

if you don't mind, I was looking to play Dooku... his actor is a favorite of mine and he dies rather quickly and so would be a temporary position, just need to do something until my character comes into it, but Greivous is a major role in episode 3 so it's not as if your missing out :) My point is that two major roles played by one person symultaneously is challenging even for me. I'm thinking it would be more in depth if we try to RP one character at a time as to concentrate on making each one authentic as a common idea is that people take up an existing character and RP them how they see fit, not how they were created.

If you think you're up to it I'm not going to stop you though, just trying to lend a hand :)

Yes that is more intense. Good idea

Dooku's all yours :)

Grace 05-18-2007 12:19 PM

I'm all for working out the plot as we go... so are we gonna get started soon? :)

Cairn trenor 05-18-2007 12:50 PM

Any spots left for me? ^^ Let me know.

Shana 05-19-2007 12:00 AM

Well most members of the Jedi council are not taken but since I can't really name them all atm then I'll name the ones that are taken:

Anakin(Miracle)
Padme(Miracle)
Obi-Wan(Terracentral)
Palpatine(Doctor)
Dooku(Aliies
Kit Fisto(Aliies)
Grievous(Steven)
Yoda(Grace)
Mace Windu(BKK)

We could use a Ki-Adi Mundi though or Ayla Secura

Black Knight of Keno 05-19-2007 05:01 PM

Should we get this party started soon?

Sigundr 05-19-2007 08:37 PM

I'll take Ki-Adi-Mundi if that's all right.

The Doctor 05-20-2007 01:50 PM

Erhm... I'm pulling out. You'll need someone else to take Palpatine.

Shana 05-20-2007 02:55 PM

Aww :( sorry to see you go Doc, anyone who wants Palpatine can go ahead and use him since he's got to be around. If anybody doesn't like how the thread began give an idea and I'll edit

Black Knight of Keno 05-20-2007 02:59 PM

I can take Palpatine for a while if nobody else wants him, but I'll have to drop him before the end so I don't create an unfair advantage to Windu if an when they duel

Nancy Allen`` 05-20-2007 07:29 PM

I'll play Aayla if you like. I also have a character of my own that I would like to fit in if possible.

Aliies 05-20-2007 07:31 PM

[Edit] we should try to get Sandra here with us Miracle! she could play Palpatine, she's good at foreboding roles :)

Shana 05-20-2007 08:58 PM

I tried but she said she found these forums confusing, you should try to get her to come here it would be nice to see her play Palpy :) she's great with characters like him.
