The Galaxy

Galaxy Awaits LARP: Rise of an Empire takes place in the Star Wars canon universe 5 years after Chancellor Palpatine and Darth Vader ended the Clone Wars and founded the Galactic Empire, as portrayed in Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.

The end of the Clone Wars ushered in a new era for the galaxy. An era of oppression and strife under the hard rule of the Empire led by the Emperor and his apprentice, Darth Vader. Sweeping across the galaxy, Stormtrooper armies cinch control of system after system, forcing worlds to join the Empire or be enslaved by them. For many, it is one in the same.

The hardest hit was the Jedi, who were dealt a fatal blow at the hands of Darth Vader when he destroyed their temple on Coruscant. The once loyal Clonetroopers betrayed the Jedi at the Emperor’s command and slaughtered many unsuspecting Jedi right there on the battlefield. The surviving Jedi fled into hiding and scattered to the wind...

Species

There are three categories of intelligent species to choose from:

  • Alien
    An alien is a humanocentric biological - and sometimes political - term to describe a sentient species other than a Human. It is often used interchangeably with the term Non-Human. The term may have been derived from the first impression of early Humans when they had their first contacts with species from other planets. However, it seems to have remained prevalent, even in subsequent millennia.

    If an Alien you are looking for is not on the approved list below, than the species cannot be played. Each and every sentient Alien listed on the Star Wars wiki has been examined by Staff.

    Approved List of Aliens:
    A     B     C     D     E     F     G     H     I     J     K     L     M     N     O     P     Q     R     S     T     U     V     W     X     Y     Z     
  • Droid
    Droids, short for androids, are mechanical beings often possessing artificial intelligence. They are used in a variety of roles and environments, often those considered too menial or too dangerous for humans and other species. Droids are also used in fields that require extensive specialization and knowledge, such as medical droids, astromech droids, and battle droids.
  • Human & Near-Human
    Humans are the galaxy's most numerous and politically dominant sentient species with millions of major and minor colonies galaxy-wide. Believed to have originated on the galactic capital of Coruscant, humans can be found anywhere engaged in many different pursuits: spacers, mercenaries, smugglers, merchants, soldiers, assassins, farmers, crime lords, laborers, slaves, slavers, and many others, including Jedi and Sith.

    Near-Humans is a term for a variety of Humans that possess no ability, though some are known to have minor physical abilities such as breathing underwater. Near-Humans often don't look like a normal Human, thus make-up and costume requirements apply.

    If a Near-Human you are looking for is not on the approved list below, than the species cannot be played. Each and every sentient Near-Human listed on the Star Wars wiki has been examined by Staff.

    Approved List of Near-Humans:
    A     B     C     D     E     F     G     H     I     J     K     L     M     N     O     P     Q     R     S     T     U     V     W     X     Y     Z
