[Alderaanian Transmission Corporation -- Special Broadcast 5 : 4 : 11 ; 14:00 , Aldera]“Early this afternoon, disaster struck Crevasse City. Though details are scarce at this moment, it is clear that a nuclear device was detonated within the city, devastating all in the surrounding area. Authorities have quarantined the area, reminding that the radiation is extremely dangerous. Though authorities have been mute upon the topic, it is assumed that casualties within the city were absolute.“Crevasse City, though young, was a promising beacon of prosperity for all of Alderaan. Intended as a tourist hotspot, the city had already begun to stand apart as a true wonder of the galaxy. Now, it seems we may never know what it could have been. Our solemn prayers and wishes go out to those involved and their loved ones. We ask that patience and decorum be exercised as we all cope with a loss of this magnitude. Stay tuned to ATC for updates. We’ll relay information as soon as it becomes available.” The State of ThingsBarely eleven years have passed since the signing of the Galactic Constitution and the founding of the governing body that will rule the galaxy for thousands of years to come. Though it is small, consisting only of the Core Worlds, the Galactic Republic is bound in peace and cooperation. Hyperspace, discovered for the first time by the galaxy at large, is pushing the boundaries of the Republic, bringing new hope and wonders to the peoples of the galaxy. Perhaps, someday, the entirety of the galaxy will be connected due to these endeavours.All of that, however, is threatened by the most recent attack on the peaceful planet of Alderaan. The young government, already struggling to form new policy and cement a permanent government from nothing but loose alliances and treaties, is threatened with extermination so soon after its formation. The nuclear assault contains within it the power to shred the fresh bonds, dragging the galaxy once more into war.Seeking answers, a small team is assembled from within the Galactic Republic to investigate the attack on Crevasse City. It rests on their shoulders to find the truth behind the attack, a task made far more difficult by the nature of the event. Little to no evidence remains, making a challenging task next to impossible. However, should galactic anarchy be avoided, the team of specialists must unite to unravel the mysteries shrouding the incident at Crevasse City . . . .The Galactic RepublicFor reference, the year is approximately 25,000 BBY. Current members of the Galactic Republic are as follows: Alderaan Alsakan Anaxes Axum Brentaal Caamas Chandrila Corellia Coruscant Duro Esseles Humbarine Kuat Rendili Rhinnal Shawken Tepasi The Jedi Order, though in existence, is not officially affiliated with the Galactic Republic at this date, and resides still on its homeworld of Tython. Their presence in the Galaxy is limited at best. The same can be said of the Sith. Technology Within the Galaxy There are no lightsabers. Blasters are in a primitive and impractical state. Even vibroblades are restricted to belt-mounted power supplies. Weapons in the galaxy primarily consist of slugthrowers and regular blades. Starships are primitive compared to what you might be used to seeing. Few have much in the way of protective shielding, though radiation shields exist. Artillery consists almost entirely of ballistic weapons, accompanied by missiles and nuclear weapons. Sublight drives are rather standard, and hyperdrives are the new norm, though it’s still feasible to find ships without them. As well, a few Hyperspace Cannons still exist. Turbolaser batteries are being experimented with, but at this stage are in a theoretical state. The Players You will play as one member of a team sent to investigate the attack on Crevasse City. You come from all sorts of backgrounds, but one thing is the same. You are good at what you do, the best, perhaps. All walks of life are welcome on board the team, and all will be needed. Soldiers, detectives, doctors, and so forth. The game will only be open for four to six players, who will be picked based upon the interest of the character and the best group composition. If I don’t pick your character sheet, keep in mind it is nothing personal, and I will always consider you more so for submitting should you be interested in any other games I may produce.
