I agree. I think that era allows us the chance to blend Canon and EU from Legends and forge a new story.
I agree. I recently started playing Star Wars: The Old Republic and it's really driven me for a more action-packed, albeit story-driven adventure!Jolan Saris wrote: ↑Fri Sep 21, 2018 3:38 pmI can tell you that I'm an acquired taste and the only real joy that comes from Star Wars for me anymore is Star Wars Old Republic. That's purely because it's the only place where I can play out my flights of fancy with re-guards to massive amounts of force users dukeing it out. Having said that, the reason I find it hard now days to enjoy SWRP is that the elements that made the movies so exciting for me are lacking in most boards. I get that personal and very intimate storytelling is what drives character development, but for me, that constant and innate state of the chaos of war is what keep me coming back to a SW board. If the galaxy...was plunged into chaos and war following Endor...or some variation of that, honestly and realistically, you have me for a solid few months of RP. Couple that with the release of new content from Disney, I could go on longer. My thoughts.
A Shattered Galaxy
A month after the Battle of Jakku, 5 ABY
The Battle of Endor saw the near collapse of the Galactic Empire, worlds were torn asunder in fear and massacres spread throughout the galaxy. The Battle of Jakku however was the nail in the coffin for the Empire, a vast majority of the Imperial Military was centered around Jakku and was defeated in a phyrric victory for the fledgling New Republic. Now the galaxy remains in tatters, the New Republic scrambles to mop up the dead after signing the Galactic Concordance with Grand Vizier Mas Amedda and giving up Coruscant to the New Republic. Despite some reservations Luke Skywalker has taken up the mantle of Grandmaster of the New Jedi Order and has set out to train a new era of Jedi Knights to protect the New Republic from threats foreign and domestic.
However despite the defeat of the Empire's most unified front...that was not all Imperial commanders. Thousands of Imperial ships still reign throughout the galaxy with the Empire now fractured and breaking down entirely, Imperial leaders throughout the galaxy area planning for their self, no longer an Emperor. As the New Republic conquers worlds throughout the galaxy they are learning more and more about the Empire and Emperor Palpatine's plans. Rumors are about that Dark Jedi, fallen Jedi exist throughout the galaxy and are seeking to destroy or convert Luke Skywalker to their side. The Emperor's former advisors plot and plan against the New Republic and others to carve a slice of the galaxy for themselves.
In the wake of the oppressive fist of the Empire, dozens of criminal gangs such as the Black Suns and the Hutt Cartel's have risen to fill the vacuum where the Empire has been left. In a galaxy that has been shattered by war...will you become a hero or a villain of this saga?
Proposed start date: 6 months after the Battle of Endor, 4 ABYA Shattered Galaxy
6 months after the Battle of Endor, 4 ABY
The Emperor and his feared apprentice Darth Vader are dead. The Galactic Empire is in shambles, a contingency operation known as Operation: Cinder has been reaping havoc on the worlds of the Galactic Empire; the precise nature of the operation is unknown and the fledgling New Republic struggles underneath the weight of the decisions in protecting former Imperial worlds from the Empire. While the Galactic Empire remains in some ways in tact as an entity, the Empire has almost entirely collapsed in on itself and descended into various warlord factions who want to carve out a piece of the galaxy for themselves. While the Empire might not provide a "central" threat, the Galactic Empire provides for a large swathe of Imperial ships and military equipment in the hands of warlords who want their own Empire.
While the New Republic struggles to militarily match the might of the former Galactic Empire, Jedi Luke Skywalker has taken up the mantle of Grandmaster of the New Jedi Order and has pledged to train a new era of Jedi Knights to serve as "Knights of the New Republic". Grandmaster Skywalker has setup a Jedi academy on Yavin and has actively begun exploring the galaxy in search of a new class of force sensitives to act as his first class of Jedi Initiates. The New Republic seeking to expand itself and eventually capture of the crown jewel of the galaxy, Coruscant but efforts made have been futile as the Empire has done all it can to retain its grip on Coruscant through force and coercion. Divisions within the New Republic have already begun to show as new Senators are calling for a more aggressive military campaign against the Empire while others wish a more moderate, diplomatic approach however both groups are firmly dedicated to the New Republic.
The New Republic and the remnants of the Empire are not all that are competing for the spotlight, rumors are that Dark Jedi or fallen Jedi once held through the will of Emperor Palpatine are now surfacing and wishing to conduct their own operations for a part of the galaxy. Information has been scarce but reports have surfaced and New Republic Intelligence is actively working to chase down these leads. While the New Republic and the remnants of the Empire are in total chaos, the underworld has become alive in the wake of the Empire's grip on the galaxy loosening. Black Suns, Hutts, Pirates all have stepped up their activity in the wake of the power vacuum left by the Empire.
