Hello, you may now embed "gifv" simply by pasting the link (same as youtube). Enjoy!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Seventeen years ago the Mandalorians, aware the Republic was in a weakened state, began conquering small worlds on the Outer Rim.
The Mandalorian forces had been devastated during the previous Exar Kun War. Mandalore the Ultimate, leader of the Mandalorian people, fashioned a new army of warriors by reuniting the remnant clans and recruiting outside species. These Neo-Crusaders carved out a vast territory outside of Republic systems. The Republic did not intervene, wishing to avoid another war, but inevitably they were drawn in by tensions as the Mandalorians encroached on Republic systems and interests.
A massive Mandalorian invasion, later dubbed The Onslaught, hit the Republic. The navy and military responded and full out war was on their hands. The Republic petitioned the Jedi Council for aid, but the Jedi Masters were hesitant to join in this battle. Many of the Jedi wished to support the Republic however and these Jedi Crusaders, recruited and led by the Jedi Revan and Malak, fought along with the Republic armies in response to the Mandalorian threat and provocations.
The Republic forces commanded by Revan defeated the Mandalorians at Malachor V after years of grueling losses on both sides. Revan and Malak led much of the Republic Navy out into the Unknown Regions to hunt down the scattered Mandalorians. A year later, they returned with a massive armada consisting of veteran soldiers, ships, and officers that used to belong to the Republic as well as even more of unknown origin. They declare themselves the Sith Empire and so begins the Second Sith War.
The galaxy ends one struggle only to start another. Many flock to the Sith banner including the defecting Admiral Saul Karath, a hero from the Mandalorian War that brings with him even more Republic ships and forces. The Sith conquest marches over the Republic, entrenching themselves for a bitter war.
The ranks of the Sith swell as many feel the Republic may fall. Soldiers are recruited, mercenaries and bounty hunters offer their services, and even some from the Jedi defect. Revan establishes military bases, strongholds, and Sith academies to organize this war machine. There is much opportunity for those who align with the Sith...
