It's a time of upheaval in the galaxy. The New Republic has just defeated the Empire at the Battle of Jakku.

Those who fought in the Rebellion now have to adjust to being a part of a legitimate government, or find other means of employment.

Those who fought for the Empire no longer have an Emperor to follow and must decide whether to align themselves with one of the many Imperial Admirals staking a claim or forge their own path.

Those caught in the middle must adjust to a newlife and pray they can make a living under a new regime.

 Add to this turmoil the news that Holocrons of the Jedi have been rumored to be surfacing in various places across the galaxy.

It is rumored that only a Jedi or Sith can unlock the true potential of a Holocron, but there are those who have been able to manipulate them enough to get at least some data. The data they've recovered speaks of an earlier age, a forgotten time.

Days when Jedi and Sith fought across the stars.

There are many who will pay a hefty amount of credits or even kill for this data.

  

Now, the New Republic, the fragments of the Empire, smugglers, bounty hunters, and anyone else who has access to a starship are seeking them.

Ooooo. Factions, I wonder what could mean? Another beyond Rebel and Imperial? 

I have zero expectations and I'm excited to see this unfold! :sweet:

Given the lack of Andromeda's gate action, I might have to join this to sate my sci-fi urges for the moment. Would be good to get a rough timescale of when this might drop.

Excellent!

As someone who has seen Star Wars, but only has a passing interest in the lore, would you mind explaining what the factions are in the reveal above?

A quick Google suggests that, from left to right, they are:

  • Havoc squad (republic special forces)
  • Imperials of some kind
  • ??
  • ?? (some kind of galactic republic faction maybe?)
  • Black Sun
  • Confederation of Independent Systems

It'd be good to be able to read a bit of the lore to get me in the mood for the rules being released!

Each faction will have a dedicated post to explain their faction and recruit builders, so I hesitate to do that for them. If you're really itching to build, feel free to just pick whatever SW era inspires you the most and worry about fitting it into your faction later. We intentionally made this a flexible game that has room for all types of SW builds. (Considering some of your past builds, I'd suggest starting on Naboo. There's a lot of source material and it's flexible era-wise.)

Wow, this sounds great. :D

Especially that Republic Fraction sounds really awesome. Looking forward to this game. :)
