The Story So Far…

 

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

ERA II: MAN VERSUS MACHINE

Ten years after their decisive victory at the Battle of Geonosis,
THE MORGUKAI EMPIRE have become the singular consolidated power
within the universe. Led by the EMPEROR ALPHA AND OMEGA unit, the
organization of ruthless droid warriors have formed an unassailable
military regime that promotes the interests of automaton over
organic beings. Encouraged by the dissolution of the Galactic
Republic and irritated by their failure to annex the planets gained
during a time of war, the Morgukai train, rebuild, and seek any
excuse to expand their territory.

Having suffered multiple wars spanning decades, citizens of the
galaxy are exhausted. Public outcry ensures that most planets are
locally-governed, giving breath to small governments and other
organizations with the best of intentions. Meanwhile, dark rumors
rapidly spread throughout the universe as the ancient tradition of
slavery rears its ugly head. Combined with organized crime on the
rise throughout the Outer Rim, sinister forces take advantage of
the lack of an organized galactic government.

With the looming threat of the machine Empire on the horizon,
countless organic beings continue to eke out a living, torn between
the fear of being ruled by unfeeling automaton and becoming prey
to the sinister unknown. However, a small number of sentients –
growing by the day – attempt to realize the dream of returning to
a golden age by facing the galaxy with fierce resistance in their
flesh-and-blood beating hearts.

Recent In-Game News

Carsanum Stockpiles Depleted Faster than Expected!
Due to excessive purchasing across the Outer Rim, spice vendors are reporting that they are clean out of the valuable carsanum spice (sometimes known on the streets as Booster Blue). Traditional spice dens on Nal Hutta and Korriban have dried up, and even small-time dealers wandering throughout Nal Hutta appear to have no supplies of the potent spice for sale. The bartender of Korriban's Dark Side Lounge, known to have a small market in selling a low-grade variant of carsanum, informed us that just moments after the news from Sevarcos II, his entire selection of the spice was bought out by a greedy individual. At this time, this full-on run at carsanum appears to have completely removed the spice from traditional markets.

Sevarcos II Severed from Galaxy; Carsanum Shortage Expected
The planet Sevarcos II - noted predominately for its prison camp situated over a massive warren of spice tunnels - suffered a major setback today. In the early morning hours, the planet's starport began testing a new wildlife deterrent system in an effort to better protect the freight shipments of their primary export: the extremely potent spice known as carsanum. Sources tell us that the system's sonic emitters were improperly configured, and inadvertently drew forward a group of giant burrowing sandworms (locally known as spice eels). These exceedingly aggressive spice eels quickly destroyed the source of their irritation... as well as the majority of the starport's facilities. Local authorities are telling us that the port is shut down, and that all carsanum shipments to the larger galaxy will cease until they are operational once more. We at GNI have already discovered that local carsanum sellers on Korriban and Nal Hutta (carrying admittedly low-grade variants) have escalated the price of their stock exponentially in preparation for a lack of the valuable spice. Confidential sources have informed us, however, that there are several smugglers attempting to find a way onto Sevarcos II to retrieve and profit from the higher grades of the spice.
