The Rapora Wars was originally concieved of as a possible third trilogy to the Star Wars Universe. It also attempts to reconcile many of the clashes between the EU and Star Wars canon. It focuses in on an invasion and the continual struggle between good and evil, light and dark as represented by the Jedi/GFFA and Sith/Rapora. If you become really lost you can read the entirety of the Rapora Introductory RPG, but I wouldn't suggest it.

The war has been broken up into several fronts, the Unknown Regions, the GFFA, the Empire, Diplomatic, and the Jedi Front. Each one is different from another but interconnected. If the Empire falls repercussions are felt in each of the other threads and so on.

You've got some choices...

First you can choose which Campaign / Subplot to enter...

:arrow: The Vaathkree Affair (Diplomatic Affair, no real warfare. Suggested for advanced players only.)

:arrow: Balance of Empire (An internal struggle for power within the Empire)

:arrow: Breaking the Vagaari (An attempt to rid the Rapora of one of their allies, the Vagaari)

:arrow: Stand Firm (A large scale combat campaign dedicated to the GFFA's attempt to contain the Rapora short of the Hyperspace route known as the Hydian Way)

:arrow: The Cycle of the Force (Campaign for force users and backstory of the Rapora. You must request permission to join in the OOC Forum.)

Then you must choose a side and a faction:

Balance of Empire:

Light Side...
:arrow: The Imperial Remnant (A autocratic nation, the Imperial Remnant once headed by the late Grand Admiral Pelleaon is now lead by Grand Admiral Oreton who is loyal to the cause against the Rapora.)

:arrow: The Empire of the Hand (The Remnants of Thrawn's Fiefdom in the Unknown Regions)

Dark Side...
:arrow: The Greater Empire Movement (A political organization within the Empire advocating a defection to the Raporan side)

:arrow: The Rapora (An ancient race of force sensitive warriors whose history spans back millenia before the Old Republic. They are lead by the Timeless One, a being concieved of and created by the dark side of the force. In an earlier incarnation he was Emperor Palpatine.)

:arrow: The Sith (After the end of the Darth Sidious it was thought that the sith were once and for all extinct. This turns out not to be the case, disregarding the two sith rule Darth Sidious created training academies based on the Raporan worlds and has created a vast army of these new sith warriors.)

:arrow: The Vagaari (A militant race once thought dead, the Vagaari have resurfaced as the pawns of the Rapora. Apparently occupied and enslaved by a puppet regime, they are used by the Rapora as cannon fodder.)

:arrow: The Aklasp (A race of silicon based life form, they are among the rarest and most deadly beings in the galaxy. Impervious to blaster fire and capable of living for millenia they remember and honor an ancient alliance between themselves and the Rapora from when they shared rule of the galaxy.

Breaking the Vagaari

Light Side...
:arrow: The Galactic Federation of Free Alliances (The newest incarnation of the ideals of the Republic and the direct descendent of the New Republic, the GFFA controls the vast majority of the Galaxy but is constantly forced to divert its forces to peacekeeping operations. Fortunately for the GFFA, its leadership is capable and determined to hold off the Rapora)

:arrow: The United Defense Alliance (The brainchild and personal government of the late Grand Admiral Thrawn, the UDA was created for the express purpose of defeating the Rapora and accepts volunteers from all races for the fight, including defectors from both the Rapora and Vagaari)

:arrow: The Vagaari Liberty Coalition (A loose coalition of Vagaari dissidents hoping to free their world from Raporan domination)

Dark Side...
:arrow: The Rapora (An ancient race of force sensitive warriors whose history spans back millenia before the Old Republic. They are lead by the Timeless One, a being concieved of and created by the dark side of the force. In an earlier incarnation he was Emperor Palpatine.)

:arrow: The Sith (After the end of the Darth Sidious it was thought that the sith were once and for all extinct. This turns out not to be the case, disregarding the two sith rule Darth Sidious created training academies based on the Raporan worlds and has created a vast army of these new sith warriors.)

:arrow: The Vagaari (A militant race once thought dead, the Vagaari have resurfaced as the pawns of the Rapora. Apparently occupied and enslaved by a puppet regime, they are used by the Rapora as cannon fodder.)

Stand Firm

Light Side...
:arrow: The Galactic Federation of Free Alliances (The newest incarnation of the ideals of the Republic and the direct descendent of the New Republic, the GFFA controls the vast majority of the Galaxy but is constantly forced to divert its forces to peacekeeping operations. Fortunately for the GFFA, its leadership is capable and determined to hold off the Rapora)

:arrow: The Mandalorian Tribal Empire (For centuries the only known example of Mandalorian technology had been the creations of MandalMotors and the Mandalorian Remnant has wanted it that way. Now with their empire rebuilt the Mandalorians have found their hopes for returning to Galactic importance and respect dashed by the launch of the Raporan invasion. Now they have decided to fight side by side with their neighbers against the invader.)

Dark Side...
:arrow: The Rapora (An ancient race of force sensitive warriors whose history spans back millenia before the Old Republic. They are lead by the Timeless One, a being concieved of and created by the dark side of the force. In an earlier incarnation he was Emperor Palpatine.)

:arrow: The Sith (After the end of the Darth Sidious it was thought that the sith were once and for all extinct. This turns out not to be the case, disregarding the two sith rule Darth Sidious created training academies based on the Raporan worlds and has created a vast army of these new sith warriors.)

:arrow: The Vagaari (A militant race once thought dead, the Vagaari have resurfaced as the pawns of the Rapora. Apparently occupied and enslaved by a puppet regime, they are used by the Rapora as cannon fodder.)

:arrow: The Aklasp (A race of silicon based life form, they are among the rarest and most deadly beings in the galaxy. Impervious to blaster fire and capable of living for millenia they remember and honor an ancient alliance between themselves and the Rapora from when they shared rule of the galaxy.

Once you've chosen a campaign and faction, create a character and post it in the OOC Forum. Then you can jump right in and introduce yourself or one of us (Probably me) can introduce your character for you.
