Okay so here is what I have for background so far:

My character's real name is Jorus Antilles III, but most everyone knows him as "Slug." His birth parents were nobility fleeing a coup on a planet within the Republic where they ruled, and were killed when their ship was attacked by pirates. Jorus was just a baby, and so he was left for dead among the wreckage of the ship. A merchant family who had decided to book passage on the ship headed for the current planet where they could settle down in peace stumbled upon the wreckage, and found him there. They took him home as their own child.

When Slug was nine years old, an agent working for the family of his birth parents came looking for him and wanted to take him back to the Republic. Fearing the search was part of a ruse to execute him so that no one would ever challenge the new ruler of his homeworld, the boy's merchant family sold him to the Hutts as a slave on a 10-year contract so that he might live. As part of the agreement, the Hutts killed the agent before he could tell anyone about the child. The Hutts had been long-term business partners with Slug's family, and so his secret was safe - they valued the large, long-term profits they earned from Slug's family over any immediate financial gains they might make by giving up the boy and his adopted family.

As a slave however, Slug was taught a different set of skills than what he learned from farming. He began his term of service with pickpocketing and as he grew older, traveled with smugglers who moved illegal goods for the Hutts. He was still very close with his parents throughout his childhood. Because of their relationship with the Hutts, Slug was better treated than many of the other slaves he knew, and most were resentful of him for it. He visited with his adopted parents often, but dreamed secretly of one day returning to his homeworld to reclaim his rightful heritage.

In the meantime, Slug is satisfied with his lifestyle, and just recently celebrated his 19th birthday, and thus earned his freedom. However, Slug chose to stay in their service - on contract, of course - and returned to his parent's home to help manage the farm on the side. His father is far too old to handle much of the work, and droids do just about everything, including providing defense in case anyone questionable comes around making trouble.
------------------------------------------
I'll work on the stats and any other details you need tonight.

Jonny, bad. Boris, its fine. Just make sure to do the invisible castle rolls so everybody can make their characters. So far, obi is the only one in need of balance but I do have to adjust a slider still, for that I need your stats. (on a point buy system he has 60 points...double average and 20 points above everybody else is to much)

Just tell him to reroll. I really dont see how he got that high unless he rolled like 50 times.

Actually I have no idea what I rolled. :lol:
I'd much rather have the original stats i sent to Jedi_Master, its just unfortunate that i didn't show all 4 dice that were rolled. The one he is using is the first set i rolled correctly, although at the time I was just rolling that for fun/testing to see if i could roll 4 and set invisible castle to keep the 3 highest, while still showing all 4 dice rolls. I'd prefer more average stats since my character is a "jack of all trades" and is somewhat good at everything. One high stat is nice, but not 3, cause that is too good.

if your score adds up to 60 you have like all 18's even then i dont see how it can get that high.

Is this a dice roll or point buy? I tried to use invisible castle but I wasn't sure what to do after I finished rolling the online dice for attributes.

its just die rolls
7 rolls 4d6

You go to die roll in IC then put everything in then copy the Url one or just copy the data base or just give him the name of your hero and he can look it up.

Point buy is normally 1 for 9, 2 for 10, 3 for 11, 4 for 12, 5 for 13, 6 for 14, 8 for 15, 10 for 16, 13 for 17, and 16 for 18. He rolled high but straight 16's is 60, not straight 18's. I should have everybody's stats tonight so you can start/finish your character sheets.

Boris, we are doing rolls but I am using the point buy system to balance them out so one person *cough obi cough* doesn't have ridiculously high stats or low stats compared to everybody else. Jonny was right on how to show me the rolls. If you put your name or your characters name in I can find it myself.

That's fine. You need the saga edition core rule-book and to go to the link and follow the instructions on the first post.

Jinn Starr, Human Scoudrel. 32 standard years old.

As a child born of the infamous smuggler Jethro Starr, he was abandoned in the slums by his father due his overwhelming debt, as well as his care for Jinn's life. His mother was a small town farmer's maid, and he has no recollection of her in his memory due to his father taking Jinn with him at an early age. After being dropped off in the slums, Jinn struggled to find much help, until he met an elderly human named Darius Bailstone. Bailstone was the owner of a local cantina, and he offered Jinn a small time job helping him clean up after the place, as well as give him a place to stay. While Jinn was stranded in the slums, he picked up a few habits, including small time gambling and a short fuse temper. This proved to be a bit of a problem at first for Darius, as Jinn would gamble away the money he achieved from working for him, as well as him fighting with other patrons. Darius was a loving old man, and loved Jinn as his own. But, one night at the cantina, a fight broke out between Jinn and a Rodian patron, and Darius was struck with a blaster bolt between ribcage, killing him instantly. Jinn, infuriated, knocked the blaster from the rodian's hands and shot him, avenging Darius's death. With two figures gone from his life, he was left devastated. Jinn decided to run the cantina, as Darius had no heir to his property. For a few years, this worked well for him. But, he had multiple assassination attempts over the years due to having the Starr name. It hardened his body and mind to be ready at anytime and any place.

One day, a hutt's henchman walked into his cantina and offered his a gamble of a lifetime: one all or nothing attempt in a game of cards for the cantina. The hutt desired a new place to own, and Jinn's cantina was in the perfect spot. Jinn, however doubting he was of the situation, could not turn it down due to his gambling nature. Jinn ended up losing it all, which put him back to having nothing. Jinn, devastated yet again, resorts to near death tactics and shoots the hutt several times and escapes from the facility. With nothing but his blaster and a few credits, he leaves the world in search of hope.

Jinn landed on this new world, and decided to go to the only thing he knew well: cantinas. It was here that he meets several friends and becomes a regular. The Starr name is not known as well here(if at all), and it's for the better. Jinn still wonders whatever happened to his father. He works the card tables at the cantina, doing substantially better than at the other cantina. He has grown to love this place, where his luck thrives. Will it keep thriving? I guess we will find out.

I can't get invisible castle to work. I registered and after doing so, it said it sent an activation email to me but I never got one - not even in the spam folder. So I thought maybe I entered my email address wrong and so I made a second one using a different email, and I didn't get an activation email there, either. Not sure what I am doing wrong, the second email address entered automatically so I know I didn't type it wrong that time.

Yeah I can roll dice but it said I can't link my character to a campaign without logging in. Not sure how to find my character again, either.

I'm sorry, I had to go to my parent's house the last couple of days kind of unexpectedly and I didn't have internet access from there to do this, so I'm behind. Thanks for the tips, I will get it done this weekend. :)
