Star Wars: Another Longshot
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…
One hundred and forty years after the Battle of Yavin, the galaxy lies in peril.
The EMPIRE under the command of the SITH LORD, DARTH KRAYT, has consolidated his hold on the galaxy. Betrayed by his one-time ally, EMPEROR ROAN FEL is now on the run from Krayt’s SITH EMPIRE. The GALACTIC ALLIANCE is shattered, their remnants attempting to consolidate under the banner of ADMIRAL STAZI. The JEDI ORDER has been decimated and are on the run from BOUNTY HUNTERS looking to cash in on what the Empire offers for their heads.
In this dark time, new heroes rise from the ruins of the galaxy and band together to fight for change. They mean to halt the encroaching darkness, and push back at the tyranny that has gripped the known galaxy.
Somewhere in the Outer Rim, those heroes will find a symbol from a earlier age when the threats, and heroes, were very similar to the era they live in now…
Another Longshot is a Star Wars campaign that occurs predominantly within the Outer Rim, a region that still holds a frontier feel. The Sith Empire has taken control of the bulk of the Galaxy. The Jedi are hunted, Emperor Fel’s forces are in exile, the Galactic Alliance are a shadow of their former glory, and those on the Fringe are just trying to survive under the Sith’s draconian gaze. The campaign will have a frontier feel, heavy on role playing interaction and high heroics, all with Star Wars-flavored cinematics.
Prelude Campiagn: The Wild Cards
Campaign one focuses on a group of ex-Imperial Special Forces Stormtroopers called the “Wild Cards”. During the Sith-Imperial war, the group was charged and convicted of a crime they did not commit. Sentenced to a military stockade, the group escaped to the Outer Rim Territories where they survive as mercenaries for hire. Loyal to Emperor Fel, but hunted by both the Sith Empire and Fel’s Empire in Exile, they operate on backwater worlds that tend not to attract Imperial attention.
