The fleet had been on the move. Since the fiasco that was the recent weeks, the Galactic Alliance Strategic Intelligence Service had been working overtime trying to find the source of the disaster that had to be an apparent leak. What they were finding was a lot of loose ends that were since being tightened up. But one thing that was being tracked was a common theme and a common destination. All the data streams seemed to have a common situation. Data was moving through locations that had a ship or two running out of that system around the similar time, and while star systems were massive, with large populations, there was a common theme. The destination of most of those trips.
Byss was a fortress world of the Sith once upon a time. The fabled Emperor Palpatine had corrupted this world with the dark side, and had used it as a throne world, complete with an Imperial Citadel. The legends deviate from there, including clone bodies for the Emperor, but one thing that was certain, the data had been passing through this system, but for what purpose? That was the point and purpose of why the Galactic Alliance was moving on the former throne world.
The scans from orbit would be showing that no major military force was greeting the fleets. But on the ground? That was a different story. The dark side was ripe on this world. And as a result, there were throngs of dark siders on the planet, many working in tandem to do their best to upset the balance of the Force, and that meant taking strikes at the Galactic Alliance and her allies. Scouts from the New Jedi Order were returning back with SIS agents to deliver more data on the world, and what they were showing was surprising. The Dark Siders were working together, and they were enlisting the local militias. They had been feeding data, if not directly, through third parties to the nations that had taken strikes at the Alliance, in succession.
It was not something that the Alliance could take sitting down, and thus they were moving on the world.
Welcome to the Dominion of Byss. Historically, this world has always hosted the Empire’s records, and the machinations of Emperor Palpatine’s clone program. Teeming the dark side, the world is host to many threats. The depth of knowledge on the dark side, and the past is a reason to become the stewards of this planet, and there are several ways that this can occur.
GADF: The local militia has become weaponized by the dark siders. We need to subdue the population and free them from their dark side overlords. Discovering a way to stop the population from attacking, and defending Alliance humanitarian efforts that may become underfire are several ideas for threads.
Political: If you are more of the political persuasion, working with the local population, the local governors and the planetary leaders to discuss terms for surrender, if possible.
SIS And Intelligene; Byss is home to the Imperial Citadel, and a number of listening stations that have been intercepting data from across the galaxy by a number of agents. See what can be discovered and retrieved, and learned from this world.
New Jedi Order, Fringe Force users: The Dark Side here is too well organized, there appears to be a conspiracy among the Dark Siders and the rest of the nations that are at war with the Alliance and her light side allies. Uncover what lays beneath the fog of Byss and stop the Dark Side before it can spread further.
