The Galaxy is Broken.

 

The Jedi are Scattered.

 

Everything is flooded in D͖͎̪̘̤ạr̠͉̦̮̮͇̠k̖͙n̢͉̫̻e̖͔͖ś̱̻͚̞̥̪̪s̸̻̖̬͙̻͓.

 

 

The First Order has pillaged and subjugated large swaths of the southern quadrant of the Galaxy,

the Sith Empire continues to conquer its way across the Outer Rim untested.

Other bands of Dark Siders ravage the Galaxy practically unopposed.

 

Only the wartorn remnants of peace and prosperity remain in a galaxy plagued by darkness and strife and few are left to oppose the growing evil throughout the wartorn Galaxy. These scattered pieces must come together, we must fight back. We must continue to resist the tyranny of the Dark despite the odds measured against us. So long as one being stands against the tide there is something worth fighting for.

 

Always remember that a single spark of COURAGE can ignite the fires of HOPE.

 

Keep Fighting.

 

May the Force be with you.

IN CHARACTER OVERVIEW

WUvQKth.png
The Galaxy is aflame with war and destruction. The Alliance stood as the beacon of power for years but is now beset on all sides by the fell forces of evil. Once again evil seems to reign supreme, preparing to crush the galaxy under its heavy boot. Some systems have closed their borders to the Light, others hope their obscurity will keep them from notice, and many have decided to fall in line with the dark powers that reign supreme, preparing to weather the storm. The powers that once held darkness in check are slowly withering.

 

The fires of rebellion have ignited all across the stars.

 

Out of the ashes of the fallen and downtrodden comes the fledgling Resistance, a series of rebellious fringers, trigger-happy flyboys, grizzled veterans, and stoic Jedi Knights cobbled together into ragtag rebel cells from all over the galaxy intent of fighting back.

 

The Resistance is on the run, always moving and finding new haunts from which to strike out at the enemy that holds dominion over the galaxy. The Resistance Fleet is scattered, spread out to avoid being caught and massacred in one fell swoop by the dark forces. Its Admirals and Generals scramble to find resources to restock and rearm their ships and armies by any means necessary without the vast resources and territory.

 

Resistance fighters use the Criminal Underground, established smuggler’s haunts, and shadowports to traffic information and resources in and out of occupied space.

Chaos is everywhere, the Resistance is only held together by thin strands of courage and determination.

 

At the heart of the Resistance everything relies on the broken remnants of a fleet and a worn-out battlecruiser which has been modified into the Resistance’s mobile capitol city, moving from system to system.

 

From here the ashen remnants of government met and constructed a new charter to establish a wartime government capable of acting in the best interests of the sentient beings throughout the galaxy without much of the bureaucracy associated with operating interplanetary governments. Without the need to defend planets and the civilians that reside on them or fight fairly. Without planetary holdings or vast resources to quantify and allocate, the Provisional Government has become streamlined to ensure their operation is better able to combat the totalitarian forces of darkness.

 

Newly elected Chief of State Gul D’razi has issued a call to arms across every sector of the galaxy.

 

In our pride, in our willingness to believe that war was at an end we allowed ourselves to believe we were unassailable. We were wrong.

 

The Alliance was born from the ashes of the Republic, torn from its remnants by the constant wars and conflicts we suffered through. And from its tribulations the Alliance was made strong, tempered in the fires of war. It fought for territory, it fought for freedom, and for patriotism. We have fought our enemies at every turn and we have lost untold numbers of loved ones in doing so.

 

And it is a fight we can no longer continue. We are now fighting for our survival, and our extinction looms on the horizon. If something does not change soon, if we do not change, we will have nothing left to defend.

 

And that means we have only one choice. We must ATTACK.

 

To those trapped under the oppression of the First Order and the Sith Empire, this is not the end.

 

We will enter each battle with greater resolve and determination than the last. We will exhaust the enemy at every turn.

We will learn from every battle, and move forward with new and more innovative tactics.

Our rallying call will echo across the galaxy and more will join our cause with each battle.

 

We are the RESISTANCE.

 

Keep fighting, hold onto hope and we will Prevail,

May the Force be with you all.

 

OUT OF CHARACTER OVERVIEW

The Resistance is an attempt to bring to life the various concepts of the Rebel Alliance, from Rogue One to Phoenix Squadron and Saw Gerrera’s Rebels, and the Resistance we see throughout the Star Wars franchise.

 

The concept for the Faction is to promote creativity and story, not become a massive juggernaut on the Map and control more Hexes than everyone else. The Resistance isn’t just big heroes with all the best tech riding the biggest ships. Some of it maybe well-funded and professional, others dark and ruthless with only scavenged equipment. The only important theme is that overall the Resistance is outnumbered, underfunded, and determined to keep fighting anyway. Overall the Resistance is Light Side oriented, but this is war. War is ugly and grim. The lines can get blurred in dark times, and thus not everyone in the Resistance is expected to be Goody-Goody.

 

The Resistance consists of small Task Forces of ships, starfighter squadrons, small ground detachments and the like. Some might prefer the commanding of ships, others prefer infantry, and some might like the idea of a single freighter and crew bounding through the galaxy blasting stormtroopers as they go. Jedi and other Fringe groups are on the run alongside the Resistance, with government officials doing everything they can to find new allies to pledge their support. All are welcomed options for writers within the Resistance.

Laira Vereen Brilliant. Just what we / the Light / Chaos needs for more opportunities to write what we know of.

Half tempted to make a new character for this, or Stephanie would be right there. :)

I'm sure The Resistance could use the help of a well off bounty hunter for some contract work. Not necessarily join your guerrilla group, but some short term work couldn't harm anyone... except the enemy of course.

Last I saw the Alliance was still the largest standing government in the galaxy, yet you want to install a new government?

I've spoken with Laira about this at length, and she can feel free to correct any parts I get wrong, but from what I understand the Resistance provisional government isn't so much the first step in establishing a new base of political power as its purpose is to serve as the movement's diplomatic and organizational hierarchy. People feel better when they can meet with a representative from a 'government', not military intelligence officer X.

 

This faction exists the way it does as such a separate entity both to provide IC plausible deniability for the Alliance, as well as to take action without regard for the provincial concerns of system level government. The GA can only take so much aggressive action before we're forced to consider the consequences total war can have for our member worlds, so in that way we are forced to at times tolerate a level of darkness for the greater good that the Resistance finds intolerable full stop.

 

This isn't intended to be a secession of manpower into a separate political state, but it is in a sense a type of defection, so while our goals are aligned there will be some controversy between the two groups IC at least early on.

As a note, this Faction is IC and OOC a separate entity from the GA Hierarchy and not beholden to its authority. We're the Resistance, we're new and we are here to blow up Sith because its a good thing to do.

 

That's not to say we don't have ties to other factions and allies within them, but its less about providing the GA with deniability, more about striking back without endangering others. If the GA, ORC, and SJO support us with forces, supplies, etc, that's on them and their story with us. Not the driving force about our story.

 

We don't exist to allow Them to fight back with impunity, we exist to fight back against the Sith ourselves because they haven't been doing very good.

So if I am reading this correctly; The Resistance is a group of fighters who have departed the GA's system because they feel the Galactic Alliance is not fighting how they should fight.

They then declare themselves a provisional government completely seperate to the Galactic Alliance or any of the other Non-Imperial Major Factions and are on a mission to install this government (which is what a provisional government essentially is) by fighting a survival war against the factions who are at war against the Galactic Alliance.

Meanwhile the Galactic Alliance is apparently aided to fund this Resistance who have split away from them in a rebellious movement with equipment and arms to help them install this new government which is not and does not support the Alliance government...

 

...You're starting to sound like a separatist...

Hm. May I suggest a skirmish with the First Order, a fleeting one perhaps? Of course, I would have to ask the higher ups.
