Hello there. I'm Valiyn and I'm pleased to announce a new project to the Mythweaver community -
A Most Desperate Hour
This game is set during the middle of New Sith Wars (1,466 years Before the Battle of Yavin), a key but largely neglected conflict in Star Wars lore. It's a thousand year war between darkness and light that we're stuck in the center of, and it's the most bloody conflict ever fought between the Sith and the Jedi that's ever been told in all of Star Wars canon. This is the generation that sees the Republic fall into it's Dark Age - a time when many in the future don't consider the Republic to be existing at all. It is a most desperate hour for a galaxy in severe need of any heroes it can find.
To explore this rich setting, we are looking for 5-6 players to play A Most Desperate Hour. Anyone is welcome to apply, regardless of any previous experience with the Star Wars SAGA system or any familiarity with this era you have. All published Star Wars SAGA books are allowed. To make sure the game goes smoothly into the future for the long term, we have 3 talented and dedicated GMs: Valiyn (me), with BlackPhoenix and Drunva acting as co-GMs. The campaign will feature a heroic story, compelling dilemmas, widely spanning consequences of your actions, and to top it off it will be wrapped up in my art and map making skills (such as the image you see above).
Players will begin their journey at level 1 and will work their way up to becoming legends of good or ill in these dark times. The character creation rules can be found in this thread. I invite you all to come by, create a character, and roleplay with your fellow applicants in our pre-game thread here. Applications will go until the 13th of July, 2012. This gives you a little more then TWO WEEKS to get your basic character concept together and start playing with us in the pre-game before we make our final decisions.
Good luck to all who apply,
And may the Force be with you!

-- Darth Ruin, roughly 2000 BBY
It's been FIVE CENTURIES since the Fourth Great Schism changed everything - an event marked by the fall of the revered Jedi Master Phanius into the dreaded DARTH RUIN and the 50 knights he lead into the shadows of the galaxy. His NEW SITH EMPIRE grew quickly, unchecked, and absorbed into it's folds the surviving ancient clans of Sith under it's new banner. Even after Ruin's demise, the rebirth of the Sith was complete and unstoppable.
A thousand years of peace and economic growth was slowly being shattered as this New Sith Empire continue to ascend in power. Figures like the DARK UNDERLORD ravaged the trade routes, waging a war against Republic, Jedi, Mandalorian, and native forces simultaneously before being assassinated. As the war became bloodier and bloodier with each passing year, even the once respected JEDI ORDER began to buckle under the accusations of XENOCIDE against the UBESE, turning public opinion against them. Ultimately, these SAVAGE CONFLICTS were but small skirmishes compared to what was come...
And now, hundreds of years later and bolstered by countless new allies, the Sith have given the aging conflict fresh breath. Utterly DESTROYING Republic and Jedi forces at the recent BATTLE OF MIZRA - over five hundred thousand slain and scores of jedi converting to the DARK SIDE - the crushing defeat opened up the OUTER RIM to almost uncontested Sith control. Now equal in size, the conflict between the Republic and the New Sith Empire is worsening. The Sith are only becoming more aggressive as the Republic is crumbling: corporations are failing all over Republic space, resources are running dry, criminal organizations are blossom everywhere, and the Jedi slowly fade away to either the front lines or unchecked positions of power within the Republic. It is A MOST DESPERATE HOUR for a galaxy caught in the middle of a hopeless ARMY OF LIGHT and the conquering BROTHERHOOD OF DARKNESS.
It's 1,466 BBY.......Welcome to the New Sith Wars and the beginning of the Dark Ages of the Republic.
