WVProgressive Posted January 23, 2022 Share Posted January 23, 2022 (edited) (Inspired by @Fbarbarossa's idea for a Star Wars RP, I thought it would be fun to start my own Star Wars RP, but this time have it be set before the fall of the Republic. We begin immediately before the start of Episode I) The Galactic Republic has overseen an era of peace, and unity for the last 1,000 years. However, storm clouds gather on the horizon, as disparate forces threaten to tear the Republic to pieces. Currently, Trade Federation Ships blockade the planet of Naboo following the Republic Senate’s passage of legislation that would allow the taxation of Free Trade Zones. This crisis stems from long unresolved tensions between the Outer, and Mid Rim planets against a Galactic Republic that many believe is overly controlled by the core planets. The Blockade of Naboo could spell an end to a millennium of peace in the Galaxy… though perhaps that could be a good thing, from a certain point of view. The Republic stands on the precipice of triumph or disaster, and it is up to you to lead your faction to victory. Galactic Republic (Claimed by @Richard) Leader: Supreme Chancellor Finis Valorum Notable Politicians: Core Faction – Horox Ryyder, Bail Antilles, Finis Valorum, Tendau Bendon, Onaconda Farr Rim Faction – Orn Free Taa, Ainlee Teem, Mas Amedda, Garm Bel Ibis, Quarren Tikkis Corporate Faction – Lott Dodd (Controlled by Trade Federation) Independent - Sheev Palpatine (Controlled by Sith) Description: For One Thousand years the Galactic Republic has been the dominant Galactic political organization… And in that time has become a bloated, corrupt, and dysfunctional mess of bureaucratic red tape, corruption, and graft. The ineffectiveness of the Galactic Senate, and massive kickbacks to corporations, and the Galactic Core has led to long held discontent among Mid- and Outer-Rim civilians. The Republic, if it is to survive the coming crisis, will need massive, fundamental reforms to restore public confidence, and reduce corruption. Jedi Order (Split between @Sean F Kennedy and @Fbarbarossa) Leader: Grand Master Yoda Councilors: Master of the Order Mace Windu, Master Plo Koon, Master Ki-Adi-Mundi, Master Sasee Tiin, Master Yaddle, Master Even Piell, Master Oppo Rancisis, Master Adi Gallia, Master Yarael Poof, Master Eeth Koth, Master Depa Billaba. Notable Non-Council Jedi: Master Qui-Gon Jin, Master Shaak Ti, Master Kit Fisto, And hundreds of other Jedi Knights, and Masters… Description: The Jedi Order has existed in its current form for almost 25,000 years. Due to the lack of any organized Republic Army, the Jedi Order has been forced to take on the role of Galactic Peacekeepers. The coming crises will test the Order’s resolve, and may force them to turn from peacekeepers, to generals. Can the Jedi maintain the millennium of peace, while also preventing a return of the Dark Side of the force? The Sith Leader: Darth Sidious Apprentice: Darth Maul Description: Long, long ago, the Sith Empire brought the Republic to its knees, and the Jedi Order to the brink of extinction… However, they soon fragmented, and turned against each other, saving the Republic, and allowing the Jedi to rebuild. Since then, the Sith have operated under the Rule of Two, allowing only the Dark Lord of the Sith, and his apprentice. Now after decades of planning, Darth Sidious prepares to enact a plan that would see the resurrection of the Sith Empire, and the total destruction of the Jedi Order. If it all goes well Sidious will be able to crown himself Emperor, provided that he is not stopped by the forces of the Light Side, and that his apprentice does not turn on him, as Sidious turned on his master... Independent Movement for Self Determination @Hestia Leader: Count Dooku of Serenno Description: The neglect of the Outer Rim planets by the Galactic Senate has fomented a rise in separatist sentiment among the population of the Outer Rim. One of the most notable rabble-rousers in favor of secession is Count Dooku of Serenno, a former Jedi Master who left the Order after becoming disillusioned with their teachings, and growing involvement with the Senate. An idealist at heart, can Dooku see his dream of a better Galaxy through to the end, or will his dreams be crushed by the machinations of more powerful, pragmatic forces in the galaxy? Hutt Space Leader: Council of Cartels Description: Led by the Supreme Mogul Boorka the Hunn, the Hutt Clans represents the loose parent organization of the various disparate Hutt cartels. Though controlled by corpulent, megalomaniacle, habitual criminals, Hutt Space is notable for its odd sort of stability in an increasingly unstable galaxy. With storm clouds brewing on the horizon, this could prove to be an excellent time for the Hutts to expand past the Outer Rim, or for one Clan to establish their dominance over all other Clans. Trade Federation Leader: Nute Gunray Description: The largest of the massive Mega-Corporations in the Galaxy, the Trade Federation also possesses its own army, and navy, one that drawfs even the Republic in power. The Trade Federation is currently blockading the Mid-Rim Planet of Naboo in retaliation for the Republic calling for the taxation of Free Trade Zones, and is being aided by the secretive Darth Sidious. The Trade Federation will have to content with both the nosy Republic, their Jedi attack dogs, and the mysterious Siths as they attempt to maintain, and expand their galactic power.
