Star Wars Skewed Universe: Destiny Rising
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away… Like you’ve never known it before
Star Wars Skewed Universe
It is a dark time in the galaxy.
Though the brave heroes of the REBEL ALLIANCE fight against the tyranny of the GALACTIC EMPIRE, countless worlds still tremble under the shadows of evil. The JEDI, guardians of order and justice, are gone, and at their passing the forces of darkness gather unimpeded.
But all is not lost. In a distant corner of the galaxy, a small band of adventurers seeks to rediscover the legacy of the Jedi. If they are successful, perhaps hope can be restored to the galaxy once again…
Destiny Rising is an Infinities Star Wars Campaign set during the Dark Times Era. An Infinities campaign examines the course of events that might have transpired had one small detail in Star Wars cannon been changed. That event, known as a schism point, creates the skewed universe or alternate timeline. The schism point for the Skewed Universe continuum occured during the final battle of the Russan campaign and let to the rise of the Philosophers.
Destiny Rising beings during the Dark Times where Emperor Palpatine tightens his control on the galaxy. It follows a young group of Force users who are just coming into their power and taken their first steps into a larger world. The legacy of the Jedi has been laid before them. Will they have strength of character to bear the load, or will they succumb to darkness. The fate of the galaxy is in their hands.
Destiny Rising is the third campaign in the Skewed Universe Continuum. The previous campaign, Nightmare of the Philosophers, opened during the lead up to the clone wars and continued to just prior to the end of the war. It followed the exploits of the Foreseen, a group of heroes who held the fate of the galaxy in their hands. Their choices, and eventual fall allowed the Empire to win the Clone Wars and bring about the Dark Times.
Rise of the Fallen , opened as the iron grip of Emperor Palpatine descended upon the galaxy some 10 years after Nightmare of the Philosophers concluded. It follows a band of smugglers and pirates who each have suffered their own fall. After one falls, it is the struggle of how they pull themselves back up that defines their character. How they deal with their demons may determine whether the light of the fledgling Alliance to Restore the Republic will begin to burn brightly or be stuffed out by the power of darkness.
