Objective #1: Umbara - The Black Wedding
Umbara, the Shadow World, is [SIZE=11pt]caught[/SIZE] in a state of great upheaval. Within the highest ranks of Umbaran society exists a small but growing number of social reformers seeking to relax the rules of the intricate caste system that has governed their civilization for millennia.
The Reformists argue that the caste system has become needlessly complex to the point of becoming a detriment to progress, current conditions favoring entrenched groups putting up more obstacles to stave off competition. Ultimately, increasing level of social stratification [SIZE=11pt]is[/SIZE] leading to greater levels of economic disparity and stagnation across all areas of society.
Meanwhile, Conservative critics of the Reformers argue that they ultimately aim to dissolve the caste system completely, which would destroy the entire social fabric of Umbara. The systems had worked fine since its inception, the competitive environment promoting both stability and innovation as most Umbarans each vie for advancement. The current caste system is but a more refined version of the Great Game played across the galaxy - at least anyone within the Umbaran caste system can rise through the ranks regardless of their starting social stature. Some Conservatives argue that the Reformist movement is just a ploy for its leader, Foreign Minister Myyse Farani, to amass ever greater power within the [SIZE=11pt]Rootai[/SIZE].
These two factions struggle against each other, openly debating and spewing propaganda in public, while conducting a [SIZE=11pt]dirty[/SIZE] campaign of subterfuge and violence in the shadows.
As part of the latest chapter of the power struggle, Farani has arranged to marry another prominent member of the [SIZE=11pt]Rootai[/SIZE], Lord Tym Lavar. Their union would help tip the balance of power in favor of the Reformists.
Dignitaries and VIPs from neighboring systems and Silver Space are invited to attend the wedding. However, behind the scenes, the SJO is called in to help bolster security against any assassination attempts and ensure that the wedding goes off without a hitch.
(Silvers can report to the security chief for a quick briefing, then they’ll be let out on the floor. Assassins are to report to a safe house within the capital, the initial meeting set a couple days before current events. The contact for the assassins is known as Lynch.)
Objective #2: Atoahttp://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Atoa - Ghost Hunters
Join Suna Gallia, Atoan High Priestess, on a mission to a mine that was recently re-opened. The mining company has been reporting the presence of mysterious and ominous energy at the site. In addition to strange occurrences, the workers seem to be suffering from fatigue, anxiety, and an overwhelming sense of dread. There have also been several accounts of miners spotting shadowy figures in and around the mine. The High Priestess has come to the conclusion that this area needs to be cleansed and has asked the Silver Jedi to [SIZE=11pt]come[/SIZE] to investigate and assist.
Objective #3: Ghost Nebula - The Void Wings
In the wake of the collapse of the Galactic Alliance, piracy is now at an all-time in the inner regions of the galaxy. One particularly troublesome group are the Void Wings, who are suspected to be using the Ghost Nebula as one of their staging areas for their incursions into the Core.
Patrol elements from the Silver Spacy and ISAF are deployed to root out any pirates operating in the space, with the ultimate goal of destroying their base of operations within the region.
(I'll be DMing the Void Wings, but if anyone would like to DM stuff too, then have at it. Feel free to employ various strategies to get a fix on the location(s) of the pirates within the nebula, from the use of recon craft to interdictor groups.)
BYOO: As always, if you don't see something that you like, then do your own thing. Umbara and Atoa are both ripe for development, the former possessing some of the most advanced technology in the galaxy, while the latter is rich in mineral deposits.
