"Master?" "Yes, my dear Padawan. Enter. Enter. How long has this been? A century, maybe?" "A decade or two at best, Master. How are you?" "I am fine, my son. I am fine. But you are not here for pleasantries and hospitality and our time is short, is it?" "I am afraid it is, yes Master. I am surprised to see you here at all." "Yes, you are. A failure of the student always is the failure of his Master, is it?" "I know you do not mean it as an insult." "A sad realisation, probably. So ask." "The Chosen One." "What about him?" "You believe he exists? Still? If so, would it not be The One? Our great leader?" "Our great leader." "Master." "Yes, yes, I knew you would ask about the Chosen One. And yes, I believe he exists and he exists very far away from The One and your Potentium radicals. Or maybe not. I guess you find him where you do least expect him to, right? A Chosen One." "Master, the age blinds you. Obviously. Hope . . . is a powerful emotion, but just a treacherous as fear, somtimes. Your need for this war to end . . ." "You should not speak of something you do not understand, my son. You have abandoned hope a long time ago to celebrate an eternal war. But hope is a flame and a flame produces light and you know something about light, my son? No matter how much darkness surrounds it, it still shines and leads the way." "Master. I . . ." "It is okay. You should open the doors now. You will come to understand my words. But not too soon. Now we kept your friends from the Jedi Inquisition long enough waiting. I think it is time to allow them to enter." "They won´t harm you, I made sure . . ." "They will try to harm me, my son. They will. But there is not death, only the force. And you and your friends . . . you have forgotten that." The prophecy foretold The Eternal War for centuries. Yet, those prophecies had been forgotten, had been ignored for many centuries. Until the war came. It all began as it always began. With a Sith Uprising, this time deep inside the Tion Hegemony. Soon it spread, alliances were forged with the Hutts and the Sith space of old returned to the control of it´s old Masters. The Republic, this one was the Third Republic, but who counted anymore, reacted. Fleets were constructed, Jedi were appointed Generals, Admirals and leaders. The state of emergency soon put the Third Republic under the wise and vigilant control of the Protectorate, the military arm of the Jedi, strengthened through the upcoming war. And then the two ancient enemies clashed. Fueled by technology of this new age and the perfection of both philosophies it was a clash unlike any before. Systems burned, worlds died and yet . . . they both prevailed. They grew stronger, they grew in numbers and strength. And once recovered, they clashed again and again until the galaxy was bathed in the fire of their unending war. It is the year 600 ABY. And the people of the galaxy begin to understand, this is a war meant to last forever . . . _______________________________________________________________________ Star Wars - The Forever War _______________________________________________________________________ These are dangerous and confusing times. These are dark days. The Jedi and Sith have made the galaxy their battleground. And all the living creatures in it are at their mercy now. But this war is different than the countless before. This one seems to be longer, seems to be crueler and it seems to be more destructive. Slowly the galaxy has begun to understand, that it isn´t only weapons technology. Yes, simple fleet destroyers have the power to destroy planets, but who is using them? The Sith, certainly have shown little mercy to anybody who opposed them. Yet the Jedi have not been better. Not few say, they might actually have been worse. A Jedi Inquisition, a Jedi Command, words impossible to be brought together only a few centuries ago now are natural. In a galaxy at total war, the only thing you can do is survive. Or can you do more? Is there a way to win or stop this war? ______________________________________________________________________ Characters: You can play whoever you want to play. It is a vast galaxy and even though a lot of time has passed, many things are not so different from the previous eras. We got Sith and Jedi. Smugglers. Soldiers on both sides and even among the neutrals. Don´t forget the Imbued, articifical force-users recruited from the soldiers of both sides. Assassins. Politicians. Civilians. Whatever you wanna be, TFW has room for it.You can pick a side, or stay neutral or oppose both sides actually. It is up to you.
