For Edge of the Empire. Our sessions are based in the Old Republic period.
Jondo was a pirate captain, raiding and pillaging from a reliable ship with a loyal crew. Life was good. The Sith weren’t really cool about him raiding and pillaging their stuff, so they decided to do something about that.
They sent Captain Veyvr'oklo'nerian or Vroklon, a Chiss known for his ruthlessness and efficiency. At first Jondo enjoyed this new rival, watching their ships flat-footedly try to chase them from sector to sector. His arrogance in believing he could always out-run Vroklon soon came to an abrupt end. A trap was laid and Jondo fell right into it. His ship was blasted and his crew was decimated. He looked from an escape pod as Vroklon left him for dead.
Jondo spent the next two weeks trapped inside the pod, brooding. Angrily. He was picked up by a jedi cruiser who had detected his signal. While grateful, he devoured what was in the pantry and stormed off with a thirst for vengeance.
His sad state of affairs didn’t end there. While on Nar Shadda, in an intense chase through the cityscape, he found he had stolen a certain Hutt’s hot rod airspeeder. After bailing out and totalling it, he was captured and sent to the dungeons in the lowers levels of the city. In there he met Jayna, a young mandalorian. Together they broke out of prison and partnered up as bounty hunters.
This is his starting gear, right now he's tricked out with heavy armour and a shoulder-mounted blaster rifle (soon to be shotgun!).
That bitchy bit aside, from what I've seen leafing through the rule books in my FLGS, FFG did manage to put together one of the best and most complete Star Wars RPGs I've seen, a full head and shoulders above the WotC versions. Edge of the Empire looks like my favorite out of the three but even Force and Destiny looks better then I expected (and the prequel trilogy had done an excellent job of filling me with nothing but scorn and contempt for those bathrobe-wearing bastards and their magical glowstick swords.) Tech specialist looks like my go-to career but after looking at some of St. Theo's latest works I find myself interested in giving the Bounty Hunter path a spin...
