    Cool Dawn of Liberty

    So after a loonnnnnggggg break, we're starting a new campaign with new characters and some new players. It's starting out as an Imperial campaign with a view to defect later on down the road. Any ways, I thought I'd post stuff here for now for those who may be interested. I may start putting stuff on the website like Project Hammer if there is much interest in it and if I can find the motivation. It will be a bit loose in what gets posted (basically stuff I type up for now).

    Here's the player primer to set the scene roughly two years before the battle of Yavin

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Historical Overview

    For a thousand generations, the Republic prospered and developed under the rule of the Senate and the protection of the Jedi Knights. As the Republic became more and more powerful, many of the bureaucrats and Senators that ran the government grew increasingly corrupt. The bureaucracy that had grown over the centuries choked any attempt at real change. Into this mire stepped Senator Palpatine from Naboo, who was soon elected as Supreme Chancellor during a crisis that affected his home world. With his election came a promise to bring order and compassion back to the Republic.

    Ten years after the invasion of Naboo, the galaxy was in a state of civil and political unrest. In the midst of this turmoil, a separatist movement was formed under the leadership of the charismatic former Jedi Count Dooku. By promising an alternative to the corruption and greed that was rotting the Republic from within, Dooku was able to persuade thousands of star systems to secede from the Republic. War spread like wild fire across the galaxy and engulfed thousands of star systems in the legendary Clone Wars.

    The Clone Wars raged for three long years, tearing the Republic apart and spawning countless tales of heroism, bravery, treachery, and betrayal, as heroes on both sides fought to defend their ideals. As dedicated as the Separatists were in their resolve to create a new order to replace the failing Republic, the Jedi were equally determined to preserve the Republic and their own position in the galaxy. As the war came to a close, the Jedi attempted to overthrow the Supreme Chancellor in a military coup. Narrowly escaping with his life, the Chancellor issued Order 66, which branded the Jedi as traitors of the Republic and called for their immediate execution without question. All across the galaxy, the treacherous Jedi were hunted and executed.

    Shortly after issuing Order 66, and during the last war-weary days of the Republic, Supreme Chancellor Palpatine declared a New Order of government to sweep away the injustices and inefficiencies of its predecessor. He promised that the First Galactic Empire, under his rule, would usher in a thousand years of peace. To achieve this, he disbanded the Republic Senate and replaced it with the Imperial Senate. In addition to this, the Emperor installed Imperial Governors, known as Moffs, to oversee sectors as dictated by military and political needs.

    The Moffs report directly to Emperor Palpatine and although they might need to negotiate with Senators for political reasons, individual Senators have no authority over them. Imperial governors are responsible for security and have direct control over all Imperial military forces in their territory.

    At a planetary level, the vast majority of planets retain their own governments, much as they have for centuries. On some select and troublesome worlds, the Emperor's advisors install planetary governors to bring these planets in line with Imperial edicts. Most of these are non-Human worlds, such as Kashyyyk, and the governors have a virtual free rein to keep these planets under control.

    All holdings of the Trade Federation and other major supporters of the Confederacy of Independent Systems were transferred to Imperial control or to Imperial corporate supporters, such as Sienar Fleet Systems, bringing greatly needed materials and resources directly to the Imperial war machine.

    Accompanying the growth of the Empire was a huge military build-up to ensure peace and order was restored to the galaxy. The Clone troopers of the Republic became the Stormtroopers of the Empire. The Imperial army absorbed most planetary forces and was reorganised as well as refitted. The former Republic Navy had been ravaged during the course of the Clone Wars and it was quickly rebuilt and expanded to ensure that Imperial presence could be felt at every corner of the galaxy.

    Addendum - The Jedi

    For most citizens, the Jedi Order did once stand for peace and justice, but the Jedi are now generally regarded as traitors who made a play for power to ensure that their prestige and their way of life was maintained. There are some who even speculate that the Jedi Order actually orchestrated the Clone Wars to give them a pretext to step into power. Despite these widely held views, there are those amongst the older generation who still hold the Jedi in high regard due to personal experiences and fond memories of a bygone era.

    Opening Crawl....


    Episode I: NEW BEGINNING

    Rising from the ashes of the Clone Wars and the
    collapse of the Republic nearly two decades ago,
    the Empire has established a new order of peace
    and prosperity by hunting down all of those who
    would threaten it.

    Eternal vigilance is the price of this new order
    and one that is charged to the vast Imperial war
    machine. All over the Galaxy, Imperial forces are
    imposing peace and restoring order to countless
    worlds.

    To oppose the Empire is to face impossible odds
    and yet the bush fires of discontent and unrest
    are slowly growing....

    Some Squad NPC's

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Mal Gilad

    Possibly the shortest soldier in the service in the Imperial army, Mal is built like a barrel and is as bald as a Duros. He has weathered features and has an angry looking scar running down the right side of his face that he got from a knife fight in his youth.

    Mal’s general demeanour is often stern and gloomy, particularly when in the field and the pressure is on. Mal doesn’t really get on with his squad mate Col due to their conflicting outlooks on life and this can be a source of tension within the squad.

    Born and raised in the lower levels of Coruscant, Mal’s early life was a constant struggle for survival with every day a battle in one form or another. A born fighter, he ended up signing up with the Imperial Army when the recruiters came knocking. He served in the regular army for three years before being reassigned to Special Missions, where is has served as a reliable member of the 42nd for the last eight years.

    Amongst Mal’s many idiosyncrasies, he will endeavour to sleep naked whenever possible, much to the annoyance of his squad mates.

    BREAKING NEWS: Devastating Earthquake Rocks Mareen


    Tens of thousands are feared dead as a massive earthquake shatters Mareen’s capital city and the surrounding coastline. Our reporters in Lapira inform us that the city was struck by the massive quake at around 04:20 this morning and that it lasted for several agonising minutes as it torn the city and coastline asunder. Large sections of the city have been upturn and dumped into the ocean along with what is feared to be tens of thousands of sleeping Imperial citizens.

    Emergency services from across Mareen are being mobilised and deployed to commence rescue operations, but it is already clear that the scale of the operation is colossal and with a high likelihood of aftershocks it likely to test the services to their very limits.

    We will bring you more news as it comes in.

    Grand Moff Tarkin Pledges Mareen Support

    Waking to the terrible news on Mareen, Grand Moff Tarkin has held an emergency Holo-conference at the Governor’s Palace on Eriadu, declaring a sector level emergency. He has mobilised military assets from both the Navy and the Army to assist local emergency services in the crisis, promising to ‘bring aid to Imperial citizens as quickly as possible’.

    From our sources we understand that several naval starships, including a pair of capital class vessels, have been issued orders to go to Mareen with all speed. The scale and speed of the response will certainly reduce causalities and bring much needed aid to the desperate people of Mareen.

    Another squad NPC

    -----------------------------

    Galarad Vorsk

    Galarad was born on a sun-baked planet in the Outer Rim, in a village mainly made up of weavers and other artisans he had a large family and spent his childhood happily learning as many skills as he could with his deft fingers. When he was 14 his peace was shattered when a renegade banking clan vessel landed on the outskirts of his peoples land, a small army of droids corralled the locals and a bulky armoured individual informed them they were now property of the banking clan, and would be treated well as long as they worked hard. Shipped off to a rocky, cold world somewhere light years from home Galarad was forced into illegal strip mine, the banking clan determined to strip the planet of its hidden mineral wealth. After becoming apprentice to an engineer responsible for blasting the rock faces he found he had a good grasp of such things, as such he then spent his teenage years blasting minerals out of the surface of his desert home, when the imperial army raided the mine and the slaves were rescued Galarad signed up in gratitude, his prowess with all things technical eventually earning him a place in the Special Missions service.

    Galarad is tall and olive skinned with dark brown hair. He is always smartly dressed, but he is rarely seen outside his uniform and is rarely without his kit bag. When at rest he is most likely to be found searching the InfoNet for more demolitions expertise.

    Mareen Crisis Charity Ball & Auction

    The Halacon Foundation have announced this morning that they will hold a charity ball and auction at the Grand Hall tomorrow night to raise money and supplies for people of Mareen following the devastating earthquake which has left thousands dead and many more homeless. Despite the short notice of the event, a spokesman for the foundation informs us that they have had a great response so far and that they are expecting a full house. Many business leaders and some high-ranking government officials have already come out in full support of the appeal and have confirmed their attendance.

    The Halacon Foundation spokesman also confirmed that they have also received several substantial donations from the people of Aegea including the Foundation’s founder Cor Halacon. Please contact the foundation if you are able to help in any way.

    Clone Wars Medical Station into Action


    Grand Moff Tarkin has announced this morning that the mothballed Medway medical station is being brought back into service to support the ongoing situation on Mareen. Capable of dealing with upwards of 80,000 patients, the station is expected to take on board its first patients within the next 48 hours. The Medway is one of twenty medical stations of its kind that served during the Clone Wars and was instrumental in keeping the army in the field.

    Doctor Cara Simkin, head of the medical operation in Lapira, welcomed the news and praised the Grand Moff on his quick decisive action that will no doubt result in greater survival rates amongst the injured. She also went on to praise the efforts of the Imperial Army and Navy in making ‘a real and felt difference to the people of Mareen’.
