Distant Past Future
The campaign will be set one month following the end of the war against the Empire. The Rebels were successful in ending Imperial galactic control, but did so at the price of losing all of their own. Both the Empire and Rebellion exhausted all the resources and influence they had in the galaxy and little trace of them remains except for the enormous wake of destruction left by the war (that ravaged on long after the deaths of Vader, the Emperor, Luke, Leia, Han, and so on). The Sith are all but forgotten, and Jedi trained by Luke Skywalker are few and far between. Most people have little faith in the Force, if they have even heard of it.
The devastation and loss of life the galaxy suffered were of unthinkable magnitude. With more than half a trillion dead, entire planets destroyed or defaced, humanity nearly extinct, cities reduced to ruin, and the galactic communication and transportation networks broken, survivors have to cope with a drastically new existence.
Will the Jedi be restored? Will peace be maintained? Who will step up to restore order? Are the Sith gone forever? How will humans survive as a minority as other species step to the forefront?
