A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away….



The Rebel Alliance won the Battle at Endor, with Darth Vader and his master the Emperor both dying moments before the second Death Star exploded. Celebrations rang throughout the Galaxy, however they quickly turned to riots as the Storm troopers sought to re-establish the control of the Empire. The Rebel Alliance continues to fight the remnants of the Empire with the fighting at it’s most fierce within the Core worlds. However out on the Outer Rim very little has changed. The Moffs remain in control with the storm troopers quickly stamping out any hint of resistance.

A ragtag team of adventurers have indebted themselves to the Hutts and have purchased for themselves a run down starship. Now, paying off their debt, these band of characters work to pay off their debt while still pursuing their own personal goals. While this band lead an uprising against the Outer Rims governors and storm troopers? Or will they find themselves mired in the underbelly of the Empire’s criminal elements.
