It started as any war did. A squabble in the Core, between Coruscant and Alsakan over trade rights in the Expansion Region, that the Jedi were asked to arbitrate for the thirteenth time. The monarchy on Alsakan had grown, like those on Corellia, Alderaan, Thustra or Procopia, more absolute, more determined. More stubborn. Nobody could say precisely when it became a conflict between the True Jedi and Dark Jedi. Nobody could say when the Republic morphed into an Empire in response to the crisis, and the battle became one of rebellion against the Jedi Lords, led by one of their own. Nobody could say when the war saw monstrosities and ancient technology reduce the half the known galaxy to primitivism. Nobody could say when the idea of the noble, honourable Jedi became fantastical - legend, when whole worlds were now attacked by the Jedi Lords simply to farm from the masses troops or Force sensitive's for the Empire's greed. All we could say was when it ended. The Battle of Corbos. By then it was known as the Hundred Years Darkness, and the Dark Jedi were exiled in defeat. Only to return from the Unknowns as Sith. It has been twenty years since then. Since the Dark Jedi became Sith, since the Sith flooded those devastated worlds and picked at the remnants of the war to rule the broken masses. Bandits, raiders, pirate hordes. Outside the Core was given away, even worlds as affluent as Alderaan were left to fend for themselves. Five Dark Lords rule from their Thrones. The Empire and the Jedi Lords who cannot see their own corruption allow it. Who will stop the Sith? You will. That’s who. —- Welcome to Ronin: The Curse of Qalydon. Inspired by the Visions short known as The Duel, and detailed more in the novel Ronin, we follow a very different galaxy. One which has seen civilisation fall in the wake of the Hundred Years Darkness. Your character? It could be a servant of the Dark Lords, a Jedi squire, a Republic diehard, a corrupt Imperial, or even, of course, a former Sith - unable to return to the Jedi Order, spurned by deepest darks… Choose your path in a broken galaxy.
