Star Wars: Rise of Black Sun (set in 33 BBY) “It is a criminal syndicate. Its influence is felt on every planet from the Core Worlds to the Outer Rim. Black Sun has existed for hundreds of years, and embedded itself in the very fiber of the Galaxy. The resources at their disposal are almost limitless. The soldiers under its command number in tens of thousands” “Black Sun is organised under one master. Beneath him are nine lieutenants… nine Vigos… who curry favor with the master and vie for power. Each Vigo is responsible for an entire system, each with their own army of enforcers and base of operations” Alexi Garyn, the leader of Black Sun, is dead! His lifeless body was discovered in his fortress on the planet Ralltiir. All nine Vigos were murdered as well, leaving the galaxy spanning criminal organization leaderless. Some crime lords take matters into their own hands and try to restore Black Sun to its former glory. Assassination, bribing, smuggling, piracy, blackmail, intimidation, extortion, kidnapping, money laundring… All means are permitted. The Galaxy will be reminded that Black Sun is far from dead! There are, however, many threats to Black Sun’s existence. The Hutt Cartels seem to be aware of Black Sun’s fragile situation and have been profiting from it. Former allies, such as the Bando Gora cult, no longer take orders from Black Sun. To make things even worse, the Galactic Republic and the Jedi have started an investigation and are determined to crush Black Sun once and for all. Finally, a mysterious hidden enemy has been responsible for Alexi Garyn’s death and has been manipulating every single event from behind the scenes.
