A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…
Star Wars: The Chronicles of Bodo
EVE OF DESTRUCTION
Obi-Wan Kenobi once called the period between the fall of the Republic and the rise of the Galactic Empire the “Dark Times.” Had he foreseen the Legacy era, he might have called the period defined by Palpatine’s rise and the subsequent rule by Darth Tempest by something else. Indeed, the Legacy era is rife with the same tyranny, oppression, violence, and danger that flourished under Palpatine’s rule. However, the Empire is openly ruled by a Sith Lord and her dark minions, the Jedi have once again been hunted nearly to extinction, and the heir to the Mobodu’wan name is nowhere to be found. Times have never been grimmer than they are under Darth Omega’s Empire, and yet the opportunities for heroes to make a difference have never been more prevalent.
The legacy era begins over 130 years after the Battle of Yavin. The galaxy is ruled by a tyrannical dictator, a Sith Lord named Darth Omega. Darth Omega and her fellow Sith have re-established the Galactic Empire. The Jedi are scattered to the distant corners of the galaxy, and the only hope for democracy lies with the fleeing exiles of the Galactic Alliance. Yet the Empire is divided, with the former Emperor, Roan Fel, leading an insurgency against the Sith Lord that deposed him. Meanwhile, individuals lurking on the fringes of society profit by turning Jedi over to the Empire for handsome rewards.
