A COLD WAR STORY
HUBRIS OF EMPIRES
FATAL ALLIANCE PT. I


After their tumultuous clash upon New Alderaan, the Empire and the Alliance would formally enter a state of cold war, one that would see the Empire seek to not bide its time after consolidating their hard-fought gains within the cluster. The Empire, under the leadership of the Triumvirate, saw their interference as a slight that could not be let go, and spurred on by the development of prototype weapons that could give them an edge in the galactic wars to come, made the first move before the Alliance had the chance to react.

An Imperial fleet of the size that had not been seen since the Third-Imperial Civil War would breach Alliance space at once, opening up a salient towards Ilum with a horde of support vessels in tow. The defense fleet of the sector was easily suppressed by the sheer weight of Imperial firepower, leaving the Empire to its own devices while the Alliance moved quickly to counterattack against the intrusion.

Meanwhile, the Empire had not wasted a moment on the world, suppressing any dissent that came as its legion of mining drones and support vessels dug into the planet's deposits of kyber, strip-mining the world so deep that the affected area was referred to as the Hallowed Scar as a result. The Alliance response would come sooner than the Imperials would have liked, bringing with them a mixture of elite Alliance personnel and Jedi to halt the Empire on the ground. In space, the fleet and its core of elite pilots were tasked with displacing the Imperial fleet, but most importantly, stopping this prototype weapon that has been brought to bear upon the Alliance.

OBJ I - BLACK ICE
SUGGESTED FOR: Duelists and Warposters



On the surface of Ilum, a vast array of caves interconnect with its numerous canyons and ridges, forming long chains of ice that pave the way toward the Hallowed Scar of the Empire. Cut deep into the crust of the planet itself, a result of Imperial hubris, and its desire to strip mine the world with haste and pettiness in mind, the Empire has so far left a continental-sized depression across the sacred planet of the Jedi.

While en route to relieve the security forces left to defend the around-the-clock strip mining, a contingent of Imperial Armed Forces are ambushed by a Joint Task Force comprised of Alliance personnel and Jedi alike.

A close-quarters battle ensues in the aftermath of the ambush, leaving Stormtroopers, Alliance Soldiers and Jedi alike to fight with every means at their disposal. Be it by blasters, blades or the stock of their weapons, a desperate fight for survival by two determined sides has only just reached its beginning.

OBJ II - HALLOWED SCAR
SUGGESTED FOR: Duelists, Special Forces, Intelligence Operatives



Seismic drills and their accompanying fleets of drones thunder across the surface of Ilum, ruthlessly pillaging the world's supply of Kyber crystals with each passing hour. The strip mining of Ilum encompasses miles upon miles, with the most desolate and deepest trench being referred to as the Hollowed for its size, but also due to the concentration of Imperials who are stationed there to protect their operation.

The Alliance and their New Jedi counterparts seek to frustrate, if not outright bring the Imperials' strip mining to a halt by any means necessary. The Imperials, on the other hand, refuse to allow their despoiling of Ilum to be brought to a close, and ready themselves for the impending assault.​

OBJ III - FINAL COUNTDOWN
SUGGESTED FOR: FLEETERS and SPACE ENJOYERS



The Imperial Fleet sits in a defensive posture in orbit of Ilum, bracing themselves for the expected Alliance response to their intrusion within their borders. A stalwart defensive pattern of ships is arrayed to protect the vast web of mining drones, fleet tenders and support vessels strip mining the world beneath them.

The momentum is left in the hands of the Alliance to displace the Imperial threat from their space, and most importantly confirm and destroy the rumored prototype superweapon located upon the flagship of the fleet. It is imperative that the weapon is neutralized immediately before it can finish being primed, otherwise mass destruction of either the fleet, or Ilum, is inevitable.​
