One year after the events in The Phantom Menace, Jedi Master Yoda calls Obi-Wan Kenobi into the Jedi Council Chamber in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. There, he gives the young Jedi Knight a shocking insight: Kenobi's apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, is not the one the prophecy foretells who will bring balance to the Force. Then, in a massively destructive tempest, Kenobi is transported to another time and place, with only Yoda's cryptic words to guide him-- together, he and the others shall restore the balance of the Force.
Kenobi is not alone. Others, from the future and the past, have been thrown together in a common galaxy with no hope of getting home until balance is achieved. Through their eyes, we see their struggles with this brave new world, and the people in it.
This story uses first-person perspective ("I" perspective) from the point of view of established characters from the Prequel, Classic, and Expanded universes. You may create characters who might have existed in any of these universes, but the point of view must remain with established characters, major or minor. At the end of each chapter, you decide what can happen next by "adding a choice" of your own.
The point of these seemingly difficult rules is to explore what a character is thinking and feeling as they interact with other characters from other time frames. The real challenge will be tying in characters who are at first glance unrelated to the overall story as they struggle to achieve their goals and interact with each other.
For clarity, in the dead end form you will be asked to identify which character the chapter's perspective is from, and what time period the character was in before they were taken in by the Tempest. For example, you might have Anakin telling the story, but he is at a point where he does not yet know that Amidala is Padmé, or you could have Luke before he knew Vader is his father. This time period helps to define and explain why a character does certain things in your chapter. After all, we wouldn't want to have Luke thinking about Leia unnaturally if he already knew they were twins, right? Try to be specific; main characters can get confusing. For Luke, you can have "Never-been-off-Tatooine Luke", "Just-destroyed-the-Death-Star Luke", "Has-trained-with-Yoda Luke", "Luke with-his-hand-freshly-cut-off", and "Mr. Mara Jade", to name a few. If a character's p.o.v. has already been established, like young Obi-Wan's, you must stick with that time period.
I know this may seem confusing at first, but I think you'll get the hang of it, and I hope you enjoy it!
