The Dawn of Defiance campaign opens some months after the rise of the Empire, with the Clone Wars a very recent and vivid memory for most beings in the galaxy. The Empire has begun tightening its grip on star systems throughout the galaxy, and Darth Vader stands at the newly declared Emperor’s right hand, crushing any opposition and hunting down the last remnants of the Jedi Order. In these short months since the fall of the Republic, many have joined the Empire willingly, including the Core Worlds whose Human nobles stand to benefit a great deal from its tyranny. Similarly, many others have begun rebelling against Imperial oppression, finding themselves driven out of their homes (or worse) and forced to live in a galaxy that tolerates no opposition to the Empire.
Several years ago some of the top writers at WotC published a campaign for the Star Wars Saga Edition RPG. Dawn of Defiance is a series of linked adventures set in the months after the events of Revenge of the Sith, designed to feel like an iconic movie experience in which the player characters are the heroes. This campaign will take characters from level 1 all the way to level 20 in a continuous storyline to give both players and GM's a complete Star Wars Saga Edition experience, set against the backdrop of the tyranny of the Galactic Empire.
The Story So Far...Chapter 1
After winning a firefight with a Chevin gangster and his henchmen, then another shootout with a squad of Stormtroopers, the group was able to retrieve special cargo...a Alderaanian spy that had frozen himself in Carbonite to avoid capture and traveling in secrecy. Now they must take the cargo to Senator Bail Organa to collect their reward and perhaps information of a larger plot...
