Once we add in that last Source, we should be okay to move this along.

I have been following along the progress of this species and the things affiliated to it. I want to thank Laira for spending so much time on it.
Here's my conundrum. On the one hand the Codex has gone through the last revamp specifically to allow people to let their creativity run wild. I am okay with really strong powerful species. With the new rules it would be okay if these guys were a bit overpowered.
The issue is that they aren't overpowered.
They are gods. I understand that you have some language here and there that says they just resemble them, that they aren't fully-fledged at the same power, etc, but honestly that is just semantics. In the wider context of the board and the setting? These guys are the closest thing you will get to godlike creatures. Plus their tech level is apparently bordering on the Celestials. With that in mind these guys break two Chaos rules:
- Your character is not God, he is not immortal and he is not invincible. While you're providing your character strengths, be sure to provide him weaknesses as well.
From the Character Creation Rules.
Banned Items are not permitted to be used in canon role-play threads on Star Wars RP: Chaos without the explicit permission of the SWRP Staff Team.
From the Restricted Materials List in the Factory.
I understand that you want to have this really powerful species. I empathize, but I am not gonna stamp that in its current form. I am going to need you to significantly lower their abilities and make them more on par with the species of Star Wars. No mention of gods, creating planets or utilizing the Force with no limit or exertion whatsoever. They can be higher than Galactic Standard in tech, but they can't even come to approach the Celestial side of things.
If you disagree with my judgement feel free to request a second chance.

I am addressing similar issues with the planet of the Titans. Coliseum. As I mentioned in regards to that, the language I am using in refurence to "gods" is from the POV from an outsider trying to explain it in terms that the current galactic society would comprehend its magnitude. Really, all I'm trying to create is stories with the "Superman dilemma". I really don't care how advanced their technology is so long as it makes sense that a race of prodigies developed it. And still, even though they are on a genius level of intellect, most of them were human at one point.
As far as your judgement goes, I cannot disagree about the use of the term "gods" and that can be fixed.
As far as making a planet goes, I'm using this as an antithesis to what the dark emperors so commonly use to destroy planets and everything on them. The focus is so often on the destructive side of the force that people underrate the creative and healing side of the force. Jedi used to use the force to heal the economy on entire planets, what if we took that and used it on a larger scale from a being powerful enough to pull it off? Force users also have used the force to fuse the components of their lightsabers together on a molecular level. So just taking these two abilities and having them exercised by a powerful being on a grand scale doesn't seem like such a stretch to me.
And from what I remember of the actual story behind the Chaos galaxy, the technology to rebuild planets has been discovered and used to restore many planets in the galaxy that have been destroyed in the past. I figure that anything technology could do, the force could do better.
