Isaiah the Gray, Part 1 #TBTRPG

Today’s #TBTRPG ongoing story comes from a recent campaign I’ve been playing with my brother Isaiah (JJ in StoryTogether’s Temple of Kings). We’re playing a 1:1 Star Wars story, heavily inspired by Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR) with some Star Trek flair thrown in for good measure.

Isaiah’s character is a Coruscant orphan, somehow lucky enough to become part of the lifeblood of drudgery of the lower class of the planet-city in his early adulthood.

Pushing the galactic equivalent of emails via a switchboard each day, Isaiah’s character is slowly going mad from the sheer, bland monotony of his existence.

That is, until he meets They and everything in Isaiah’s life changed forever.

Isaiah had always known there was something different about the way he perceived and interacted with the world. But when the user interface of his “email” switchboard lit up in bright, crimson red with his name, and not the notes he was to file, he was sure something was different . Today, for the first time in his life, could be different than the previous one.

Stay tuned for Part 2 on next week’s #TBTRPG…
