So I'm putting this up as well. For future reference after the release of the new Star Wars movie, this thread will contain spoilers as we will be discussing how to approach our future VE canon.

Honestly, I like the idea of the VE starting out small again. To reflect the fact that our club is small right now, and as we grow, the Empire grows again.

So, I'm just dotting down the discussion we've had some far on Facebook in regards to the plot-line for reference.

Trykon:
I already hate my post. smile emoticon But I think it's just nice to be writing together, without this becoming actual canon. We should make some choices about what our club canon is. What, if anything, to keep from VE IC history, and then start again.
Trevor:
I'm pretty sure it's a sign of good writing to hate your own writing.
I do it all the time
Heliwer117:
Honestly the biggest thing I was worried about was the choice in weapon
Snipes :
That's how I know I'm done editing, if I want to burn the manuscript.
Heliwer117:
And I hate mine almost right after writing
Aeos: :
We're gonna need to sandpaper a lot of things down and figure our what to do
Skarr :
Honestly.
I'd say let's do what Disney did.
Old VE is Legends.
And we just wipe the slate clean.
Snipes :
It's not a bad notion.
Heliwer117:
Our new emperor is Mickey Mouse
Skarr :
Heh.
Because honestly.
Trykon:
SO in favor of that
Aeos:
haha
Skarr :
One of the problems with the VE was just never knowing what the hell went on before I came on the site. lol
Trykon :
We've all matured a lot, to say nothing of the REALLY early VE stuff. We should take everything we've learned, and start again.
Heliwer117:
The easiest thing to do is say that there was a split in the First Order
Fury :
yeah, Spartacus used to have a doc that covered the time before even I got here, but he's a hard one to find
I agree though, archive it for interesting reading, move on
and hell, my gig was to try - and fail - to make sense of it all
Trevor :
Well, aside from character histories (if you had any serious history with the VE) isn't that basically the plan? I mean, it might as well be. The VE was "decimated" and now it's coming together. Beyond the collective memory of any characters, it's basically all legend anyway
Aeos:
I'm gonna paste all of this onto the thread to keep record btw
Trevor :
IC there would unlikely be any real history, as history is written by the winners and that wasn't what we ended up being.
THX:
Wouldn't a clean slate require new characters? Not complaining, just wondering.
Fury :
nah, there is history, and then there is relevant history
Heliwer117:
I think when you've invested so much into a character, you shouldn't get rid of them
Fury :
we used to bring in other clubs and then have to deal with their past adventures
Skarr :
I mean, our histories can be just being apart of the actual Galactic Empire. Just depends when this clean slate is.
Fury :
that's personal stuff, don't have to railroad the whole club into learning it
we can do the same here
you can reference it as past character background, it others were involved, so be it
Trevor :
I agree
Snipes :
Don't even necessarily need to dump all character history, although it would be my preference, can just adjust it to fit within a new canon.
Aeos:
Honestly would love to do a clean slate of everything, was thinking maybe that Aeos: had a kid, and basically continiue the story from the kid's intro into the new VE. So I don't get rid of old history, but still have a chance to start fresh
Skarr :
So when is this new canon starting? Right after Return of the Jedi? Or are we going with this new Force Awakens era.
Heliwer117:
I'll change the character history for Heliwer around a little
Fury :
which, incidentally, was why i pushed in the two year thing in the story. we all personally lived it, plus it gives our characters a chance to move into open territory to remake themselves
\l "
Aeos:
Once thing that has always bothered me was, we lacked universal consistency in our stories, characters aged differently, etc
Fury :
Good question, if we move it too far out, we're tripping on the movies, which will confuse folks
Skarr :
Yeah.
Fury
plus, we may as well make new characters then
Heliwer117:
Plus there's some of us (me) that would rather not have there be spoilers
Snipes :
Yeah, between rotj and tfa seems safest.
Skarr :
Yeah, same here. XD
Fury :
we were already into the sorta Thrawn years, and I arbitrarily pushed it further a bit
Heliwer117:
Alright, well I'm gonna jet. And by jet I mean crash and by crash I mean sleep
Snipes :
The nature of the club means that there are going to be spoilers, best we can do is post warnings and try not to be a dick about it.
Fury :
call it about seven to nine years after ROTJ?
Snipes :
Works for me
Skarr :
Sounds good.
Trevor :
no complaints here
Heliwer117:
Works for me too
Night everyone
Fury :
blame me later when Disney f's that up somehow
'night
incidentally, at some point, this story is gonna have to end up in some Lotaith bar
Drac :
Hey, Fury. Any chance you know what ship Stormz is commanding?
Snipes :
It will be the only scene to include Snipes
Skarr :
Dunno, think I might make a new "old Skarr." Maybe he comes out of retirement or something. If I come back to writing. lol
Fury :
i don't know given that Chapter 9 was a damn mess
still waiting for the Mustang to come in with Kad wearing assless chaps to go along with his Viking beard
Snipes :
Hahahaha
Fury :
seriously, anyone seem him lately?
*seen
Snipes :
It's not a VE party until command is wearing assless chaos.
Fury :
it is an impressive beard
Snipes :
Chaps.
Trevor :
i prefer chaos
Snipes :
Don't think I've ever seen him.
Drac :
I mean, the Atrus presumably went down at the end of Ch. 9 or briefly thereafter. mSSDs don't sneak around the galaxy unnoticed for two years.
