    Welcome to Angry Birds: Star Wars RP

    Welcome. Here Birds and Pigs battle each other for domination over eggs. You can be a bird type, (C-3PO, Luke, Leia, Obi-Wan, Han R2-D2, Chewbacca, or Wedge) and possess whatever power your type has. Different locations are different battlegrounds. second res is Tatooine. Third res is Hoth. Fourth result is the Death Star. Here is a list of powers per type (for if youve forgot): Leia: Tractor beam. R2-D2: Can zap ppl. C3PO: Explodes. Luke: lightsaber slash. Han: blaster. Three shots. Obi-Wan: Force-push. Chewbacca: Heaviness. Wedge: Splits into three birds. Pig types & powers: (well, there arent many pigs that have powers besides Darth Vader, and all he has is some force power) Tuskaan Raider: no power. Stormtrooper: Blaster. Darth Vader: force power. Death Star trooper: no power. Pig probe: no power. You can be a power hybrid, (possess two powers) but the first one you use will be the only one you can use for two hours. Post descriptions here. Any questions will be answered in the next res. My description: Bird name: Fusion Mcguire. Bird type: Chewbacca/Wedge (power hybrid). Power(s): can split into three, can turn heavy. Hobbies: reading, flying.------------i hope this post made sense, and have fun at this rp!! ~Fusion Mcguire
