Ruled by the Emperor on Dromund Kaas, the Sith Empire is an ever increasing threat to the security of the galaxy, with its eyes fixated on the destruction of the Republic and the Jedi. With the Imperial War Machine moving across the galaxy swiftly and with great force and determination, the Cold War of the past, and the fragile peace that followed, are but a distant memory to the intricate schemes that the Sith are unravelling across the galaxy.
The Galactic Republic is more than just a symbol of peace - it is the embodiment of freedom, resistance and iron clad ideals which protect the galaxy from the onslaught of the Sith. From the glittering towers of Coruscant, the Supreme Chancellor with the full support and cooperation of the Senate and the Grand Master of the Jedi Order, have instructed the Jedi to protect the innocents of the galaxy, and take any and all action required to exterminate the Sith threat. Although so much is unknown in such a tumultuous time, the Jedi have never been so resolute in their resolve.
A collection of worlds, largely holding allegiance to Mand'alor. This sector of space was carved from the territories of many species and governments over the past 3,500 years, through both conquest and diplomacy, some joining the Mandalorians because they had to, and choosing to remain, others willingly, through forged alliances. Though it currently sits largely within Imperial Space, the Mandalorians' territory is still very much their own. Their alliance with the Sith Empire, and their value in many fields has helped secure this, and any newly conquered is as open to Imperial settlement as the Mandalorians themselves. There are rebellious elements within this sector, but it is likely that Mand'alor will seek them out and crush them before too long.
From the criminal capital world of Nal Hutta, the Hutt Cartel has created a monopoly across the entirety of Hutt Space, and in many ways, the entire galaxy. Boasting illegitimate practices, shady dealings and outright illegal business etiquette, the Hutts have maintained control of their own sector by remaining out of the interest of the Sith or the Republic, or by dealing under the table with everyone. Perhaps one of the main neutral forces in the galaxy, the Hutt Cartel has lined pockets of Sith and Republic officials alike, in its ever expanding quest to maintain the lifestyle that the slum worlds they possess have granted them.
Unaligned, or out of the reach or thought of the mighty Imperial War Machine, or refusing staunchly to join the Galactic Republic, the worlds of the greater galaxy from a somewhat tenuous bond through their continued independence. Though not untouched by war - and often the unfortunate staging ground for it - the galaxy stands in wait as the great powers of the Sith and the Republic do battle - hoping to remain unaffected and untouched by the scheming and secrecy that surrounds it. In this reach of space, small Empires and collectives of their own are created, with domains large and small hidden in the Unknown Regions and the galaxy at large.
Unlike the stories, the galaxy isn't neatly divided into Imperial and Republic planets - many worlds exist on both sides of the conflict, and neither at the same time. Some of these planets are in conflict with themselves or are the staging ground of the war between the Sith and the Jedi. Many of these planets are in contention, as the Republic and Empire struggle to maintain superiority. Here, you will find them.
With the passing of Grand Master Jakar Forseti due to his heroic sacrifice on the space station Elysium, the Jedi High Council and Supreme Chancellor mourn the loss of the former Jedi Grand Master, though it is with the Grand Master's sacrifice that pride and hope fills those on the Jedi Council. With such an occurrence on the Supreme Chancellor's plate, it is unknown how he will act, though the Galactic Republic believes in their leaders.
With the stricken Sith Emperor Darth Valyrian, the Dark Council is given orders by the Hands of the Emperor to act as the true leaders of the Sith Empire, calling upon those on the Dark Council to stand up and take the reigns. Within the ranks of the Imperial citizens, whispers have begun to spring up of a war heading directly for Coruscant, though these whispers are few and far between - being left up to the Dark Council.
With these galactic occurrences happening, the galaxy is once again on the brink of full out war. It is only a matter of time until it all collapses and war fully breaks out.
I'd say that I was coming back from my two week holiday - but I've been inactive and absent for much longer. Trying to recover my writing bug, considering some serious character retirement and fresh starts. Will keep trying.
