So, I've started with an SWRFuss 1.3 and made some hefty changes. I thought I would share a little of what I've done so far to drum up some Staff and Players as well as any critiques. I've created a newbie area with a series of quests and items and some boss battles. They should give a general indicator for how the game's combat system will play: it's pacing, it's questing, it's leveling style, skill creation, etc.
It will be Role-Play enforced mud, and the Role-Play systems while designed are not completed yet. I do feel, that I have enough code in place for builders to start building and for me to start moving through Alpha and Beta phases. After making that newbie area I realized, I am not a builder, I am a coder and there is a list of staff positions that I am seeking below. As a Builder or Head Builder, I should warn you that I do have a vision of what I want content to look like and it will be held to very high standards. That being said, I am not extremely strict with area design or creativity, just what features may be included a certain areas as well as which planets will be which level ranges. I will also be collaborating heavily on item stats. Without further delay…
Staff Positions —————– - Head Builder: Must have great knowledge of Star Wars and be well versed in the Smaug OLC and ready to adapt to the various upgrades I've made - Other Builders x3: Must have some knowledge of Star Wars Muds and have at least worked with the Smaug OLC

Please keep Thoughts, Comments, Critiques, Suggestions, Ideas, Pondering, and Wonderings to the Thread so I have a place to go and reference them later.
If you like what you play and want to participate in this project, I will take applications through PMs and Emails(firstname.lastname@example.org). The positions listed above are the ones I am seeking but general applications are welcome as well. If you feel you bring a particular skill set other than building to the table, feel free to apply and tell me what that is.
