STAR WARS: Tales of the Solay Express
CAMPAIGN - Background
This campaign is set 5 years after the formation of the Empire. The Jedi are all but extinct, and the scum and villainy of the galaxy are enjoying their “golden age” as the the Galactic Empire takes control of the galaxy. During this time, countless alien species are completely wiped out, or have established agreements with the xenophobic Empire to keep them and their peoples alive. Aliens are not the only ones to feel the Empire’s wrath, as hundreds of worlds are caught in the wake of battles with former separatist colonies, or consumed by the Empire’s rolling war machine. The galaxy at large, is turning into a much harder place to live.
Assassinations, bribery, corruption, debt, shady business dealings, murder and everything in between are common amongst the ever widening cracks that have been caused in the wake of the Clone Wars. It is in these crevasses and shadows that our campaign takes place. The primary question in this campaign is: How did people survive on the edge of the Empire during these turbulent times, and to what lengths will they go to protect their ideals?
The campaign will have a sandbox structure, with the background designed without player input, but with stories driven by the characters themselves. Stories will contain elements of each character’s backgrounds and how they interact with the overall plot. There will be no limitation as to what types of characters can be played.
My intention is to run a trilogy of “seasons”, with twelve (12) “episodes” contained within each season. Each “season” will have a theme running throughout. An episode will consist of one or two game sessions.
