Many years have passed since the death of Emperor Palpatine at Endor. His death was a catalyst for the plucky Rebellion to become a legitimate government. However, the Galactic Civil War rages on. Despite the loss of their Emperor, the Imperials continue to fight in an effort to reclaim worlds now lost to them. As the two galactic superpowers vie for supremacy, Organized Crime runs riot. Smugglers sneak in and out of territories, bringing illegal goods to those willing to pay top credit. The outer rim worlds are a haven for those looking to disappear. In a time of war, mercenaries are high in demand. Immoral souls, sold to the highest bidder to do the wet work of others. Pirates raid the space lanes, preying on unsuspecting traders for credits and their booty. Alliances are forged and broken as factions attempt to gain a foothold in the galaxy.
