I'd like to get as much information on the subject of the title as possible. I've done some research on the subject, but it occurs to me that there might be some tidbits of information in novels I haven't read and the like. I would like to run a Star Wars RPG campaign with the PCs being part of the command crew of a Star Destroyer (probably smaller than Imperial-class, maybe a Gladiator-class) under Thrawn's command in the Unknown Regions (I kind of think of it as being "Star Wars Trek", but really it only shares a basic premise with Star Trek, I'm not doing a crossover here.). However I need to establish a few things. I'd like to know how big the EotH is. I've heard a figure of 250 sectors, however Wookieepedia is unclear whether this is territory actually controlled by the EotH. In any case, since this is going to be relatively early, perhaps from 0 ABY to most likely sometime after Thrawn's promotion in 2 ABY, they won't have that many sectors yet. Furthermore, the Essential Atlas shows the EotH being in the north of the Unknown Regions, yet the EotH attacked Lhwekk immediately after the Battle of Bakura, and that seems rather far from his power base. This seems to suggest that the Empire of the Hand was active in regions far from the territory they actually controlled. I'd like to get people's opinions on about how far the EotH extended at the period I'm thinking about running. I'm also curious about the EotH's military strength. Especially whether there were equivalents to the Sector Groups of the main Empire. Likely if there are, they aren't quite as strong, even at the EotH's height. At 250 systems and 24 ISDs per Sector Group, that's 6000 ISD's, little less than a quarter of the highest number of ISDs the Empire ever had. That's clearly not likely to be right. Furthermore, it seems that Thrawn ruled with a light hand and the EotH was very much a confederacy of allied natives along with the Imperial's. It's seems likely that many systems would have their own Planetary Security Forces or even further ranging forces that might be at least semi-autonomous from the Imperial Navy. Might these be counted as part of a Sector Group, even if they are autonomous? Did the EotH have it's own shipyards? I have also posited the existence of a Imperial Unknown Regions Expeditionary Fleet, is this supported by canon (mostly is their enough ships out there to be a fleet, and are they actually organized into one, or at least is this a possibility given what we know?)? Obviously this is a lot of questions that may or may not have canonical answers. I encourage speculation, especially if based upon existing canon material. Also I am interested if any roleplayers that may have campaigned in the Unknown Regions have stories about their experiences. I am especially interested in how they may have interpreted existing material, including the Saga Edition book the Unknown Regions. I.e. where GMs may have placed certain planets, what kind of ships, weapons, vehicles they gave various forces, how they extrapolated from certain references like the greater role of various corporations like Tangan Industries from Iol, and Eeook Mining and Reclamation, and Tor-Ro-Bo Industries, beyond the planets they are mentioned in the description of and exactly what conflicts Lorgrombo might be involved (does he deal with the EotH, or perhaps provides warriors to enemies of Thrawn like Nuso Esva?). I hope this is the right section for this, it seemed the roleplaying forum was specifically for roleplaying on this forum.
