The latest chapter of Star Wars history. Enter the Vicissim, the newest military superpower, promising a reconstruction of the war-torn galaxy...
About this creation
It is 150 years after the Empire's defeat at Endor. For decades, the remnants of the Empire and the frail government known as the "New Republic" have been fighting a war that has torn the galaxy to shreds.
Once thriving planets have been reduced to dying wastelands, and trade routes that once ferried exotic merchandise from planet to planet are all but empty.
Crime runs rampant, laws are a myth, and galaxy-wide corporations have dismantled orbital shipyards and strip-mined even healthy planets into rubble, all for their personal gain. Greed knows no end and violence is all but inescapable.
Corsucant, a once bright center of the galaxy, has become a festering cesspool of scum, evil, and power-hungry warlords.
As the galaxy sways on the verge of purging itself of all life, a new hope has surfaced. The dawn of a new era has began.
An entity known only as the Vicissim, wielding an armada of countless starships, has appeared. They promise a reformed government and a healing of the war-ravaged galaxy.
Pirates who could once hijack any vessel, seizing its cargo and killing its crew, now find their vessels and bases crippled or destroyed by mysterious starships. Warlords bent on ruling entire star systems are being demolished, their spread across the galaxy slowed.
This navy, while quietly righting wrongs, has yet to take a firm hold on the galaxy. They remain in the shadows, furiously and quickly subduing those who would attack others in this hopeless time. They remain a distant, mysterious police force, never speaking with those they rescue and disappearing as quickly as they arrive.
As news of the Vicissim 's deeds spread throughout the galaxy, it gives its inhabitants hope. Hope that one day that Republic will be restored to its original glory - as it was before the Empire and before the Sith.
And yet, there is something unsettling about this new hope. Something mysterious and silently frightening. Who are these people? Where do they come from? Why have they undertaken the staggering task of rebuilding the galaxy…? And what is their price?
Wow ... great intro for a series of MOC's and adventures ! ... but i was expecting (hoping) to see some pics ... at the very least, a pic of a custom minifig representing the character 'Vicissim'. I also noticed that you wrote this way back in 2005 ... i hope you haven't gave up on your story, and that this isn't the end.
Well, up to the very last paragraph I was thinking "Oy vey, another deus ex goodie guys group from the shadowz". But then, it seems you wre well aware of the clichiness of it... I'm looking forward to see their true face... and will face them if neccessary *laugh*
