"What do you mean? Cut off?" The man brushed his beard and looked at the young Bothan over the green glowing hologram of the Taraxes-System. His hand touched his lightsaber. Even after all these years it had a calming effect on the Jedi Master. "We have reports coming in that hyperspace travel to the system has been ... failing. For no apparent reason it seems to be impossible to enter the system." The Jedi raised his brow in surprise. The Hutts had shown little activity in the sector. None actually. Now he wondered if that had probably been intentional. "What do we have in the system?" He asked. The Bothan Ran Kad'lar nodded and zoomed into the map of the system. "A lot, for a system in the unknown regions actually. An ancient space station called Aton IV, a major trading hub for Tarax, the mining planet in the system. They are the ones mining Peridan for the Republic. But we also have a mission there. The 'Voice of Authority' has been send there to investigate a local pirate group with possible connections to a Jedi Master who vanished nearby the system." The Jedi Master raised his brow. "A Jedi Mission?" The Bothan nodded. "Yes, Sir." The Jedi Master sighed and leaned forward. "Did they report anything?" "They have been following up on rumors of the pirates hiding in the local asteroid system. It is rather vast. They actually requested reinforcements." The Jedi Master looked at the Bothan officer and gave a deep and concerned sigh. They obviously could not send reinforcement. They could not send help or resources to the system. They could send nothing. "May the force be with them." It sounded hollow even to him. The Dark Moon Crisis Something has happened in the Taraxes-System, leaving the whole region cut-off from the rest of the galaxy by not allowing hyperspace travel outside the system. Micro-jumps still work, but have become unreliable. The mysterious event left thousands stranded in the system. Traders, smugglers and bounty hunters, agents of Hutts and even a Republic Corvette are stuck and things are complicated with communication to the only habitable planet in the system having been cut off. The game begins 24 hours after the "anomaly" has occurred. It is the year 2.762 BBY and the events that will be remembered as the Dark Moon Crisis are about to begin. Your character can be anyone, from a simple inhabitant of the local space station Aton IV to any person passing through the station or a Republic soldier or officer. But any character will begin either on the station or on the docked Republic Corvette "Voice of Authority" which is docking at the space station to receive supplies. There are two Jedi on the mission who will be up for players to pick. Those are the only Jedi available for players. Characters can be force sensitive though. But this story is not about Jedi, but about everybody in the system and how they deal with the unexpected isolation. If you make this your fight for survival, your moment to claim power or money, settle old scores or a quest to solve the mystery of the sudden inability to enter hyperspace is up to you.
