STORY SET UP:
With the end of the Helgardian War between the New Imperial Order and the Sith Empire - the NIO seeks to expand its grip over the Tingel Arm by exploring economic expansion into the Corporate Sector via worlds outside of Sith-Imperial yoke. This includes the worlds of the outside Rimward edge - like the temperate Dostra System world of Brosi. Rich in Hfredium a metal refined for Warship Hull Plate production, the NIO sent its most trusted Moffs to negotiate with the Hfredium Corporate Conglomerate that controlled the Brosian supply from its mercantile fortress city in the Shoengen Delta upon the Nomers Ocean coast. The Moff Delegation is accompanied by a contingent of Imperial Knights and the Imperial Maritime Forces as a modest guard. But, unbeknownst to them, the newly forged Warlords of the Sith have been negotiating with a rival component of the Sheongen Conglomerate and agreed to help them in a hostile takeover of the world and conglomerate in exchange for making the rival board members Ore-Dukes of Brosi via feudal vassalage. The NIO’s delegation has no idea that a dark storm will soon eclipse the Sheongen Delta and all of Brosi - beginning a conflict that would be later recorded as The Rimward Wars.
OBJECTIVE 1: KNIGHTS OF AVARICE
While guarding the Moff Delegation in the Sheongen Conglomerate’s tower within the mercantile fortress city, the Order of Imperial Knights within are besieged by Warlords Sith deploying from a flotilla of ships above the Brosian atmosphere. Fierce urban warfare breaks out as the Imperial Knights must enact a totally unexpected evacuation. To make matters worse, a rival board member has hired mercenary insurgents to take the tower and enact a hostile takeover. The Imperial Knights have fallen back to the Shoengen Delta, taking up a defensive position on a bridge that spans across the Nihun River. They must do all they can to hold the line until the remaining citizens can evacuate.
OBJECTIVE 2: SINK THEM!
As the evacuation of the Moffs begins, the Imperial Maritime Warships docked in the Sheongen Delta are attacked by Warlords, amphibious assault Sith Battle Chapters and Insurgents. Above starfighters drop down to pepper ships with laser fire. The Warships of the Imperial Maritime are caught in an apocalyptic surprise attack and must prepare to set sail - or sink to the bottom of the delta! Their only hope is the NIO Starfighter Air support present from the cruisers that joined the Moff’s Delegation.
