(Event) 29 BBY: Keeping a close eye on the conflict between the Republic and the Hutt Regime, Viceroy Nute Gunray of the Trade Federation is horrified by the combat prowess of Antimundis and believes a move must be made to counter the growing threat Cyber Force Users pose to the Federation.

Darth Maul, leader of the Tunda Cartel, tells Gunray to set up cloning laboratories and grow Cyber Force Users of his own. Both are told to demonstrate their concepts against those of the other.

(Bad)

(Event) 27 BBY: Threatened by the growing power of the Separatist Union, senator Padme Amidala wrests control of the senate through the use of shrewd political maneuvers and the Jedi Knights, installing herself as Empress in what she sees as a necessary evil to unite an increasingly unstable Republic.

(Good)

(Event) 20 BBY: Battle of Theed – With no where else to go, the Confederate forces rally at Naboo. The move proves to be disastrous as they fall for Grand Admiral Thrawn’s brilliant strategy. With an Imperial fleet hiding at the dark side of the moon, the Empire makes quick work of the rag tag confederate fleet. Fighting moves to a climatic battle in the palace of Theed itself. The Antimundi’s along with liberated B1 legions route prominent confederates into the palace. Satisfied that the “womprats had been cornered” Grand Admiral Thrawn pulls back his Antimundi troops then orders a full orbital bombardment of Theed. In a display of firepower the galaxy hadn’t seen, the entire half of the planet Naboo is “glassed” from the concentrated fire. The brutality will ingrain in the minds of the galaxy and order soon follows from other systems. (Good)

(Event) 25 BBY: Imperial Knight Qui-Gon Jinn is sent to the planet Ilum to oversee the mining of Kyber Crystals intended to be used for new Empire weaponry. However, a mining facility is attacked not by the CIS, but the Hutt Regime to use the crystals for its own purpose.

(Event) 24 BBY: By order of Empress Amidala, integration of the Jedi Order and the Imperial military continues. Jedi Knights retain their rank within the Order and their lightsabers, however, they are commissioned into the Army and Navy as the elite Stormtroopers, clad in full plastoid armor and carrying standard issue blasters with them. (Good)

(Event) 20 BBY: Bitter from a failed assassination attempt made my Jango Fett, Empress Amadala places blame on the old imperial senate and moves to dissolve the antiquated assembly. Left with a scar along her right eye, she delivers a powerful speech solidifying her absolute power. Her rhetoric is fool proof and it is with thunderous applause that the senate is dissolved and the Empress raises above all doubts of her rulership.

(Event) 20 BBY: Quarsh Panaka is the first to be given the title of Moff, and is given control over his native Chommell sector. However, the unnecessarily brutal methods of Grand Admiral Thrawn resulted in the destruction of his beloved home and the death of many innocent acquaintances, including his nephew, Gregar Typho. The Moff and his wife Mariek, holding a grudge against the Grand Admiral and, to some extent, the Empress, make a vow 'to make them all pay'. Carefully maintaining their official positions and attempting to rebuild what is left of Naboo, Mariek makes the acquaintance of Chandrilan Senator Mon Mothma, while Quarsh cautiously evaluates approaching an Onderonian insurgent by the name of Saw Gerrera. (Good)

(Event) 24 BBY: The Hutt Regime sends a bounty hunter duo to assassinate Wat Tambor of the Techno Union, a weapons manufacturer for both the Empire and CIS. Qymaen jai Sheelal and HBP-04 are able to succeed in their mission, but the bomb they planted in Wat’s chambers kills a total of 47 Union members and civilians causing more chaos than the Hutts intended. (Bad)

> (Scene) In the streets of Ryloth, a squad of Antimundi are commanded by an elite Stormtrooper to guard what looked to be just a hole in the ground, but in reality led to the chambers of a captured Hutt by the name of Ziro. Four bounty hunters watched from one of the nearby rooftops as Antimundi made their patrols. Two IG models stood diligently behind Jango Fett and Latts Razzi, awaiting their orders from the former Mandalorian. “Those soldiers shouldn’t be a challenge.” Stated Latts while she looked through her macrobinoculars. “It’s the Stormtrooper that worries me a bit. They’ve taken out their fair share of Hutt clan members and I’d rather not join them.” She turned to Fett. “What’s the plan boss?”

Jango stood besides Latts, monitoring the situation with his rangefinder. He regarded the Theelin for a moment before returning his gaze to the guards. “The whole situation is less than ideal.” He announced solemnly, “then again what situation ever is?” He asked rhetorically. A trace of a smile could be heard on his masked voice though it would be impossible to tell. Nodding to the two droids he stood up straight. “We have no choice but to hit them hard and fast. If we focus on the stormtroopers first we might overwhelm them. The rest should fall east after that. We all know hutts can’t move fast so we have to secure the area before we get Ziro out..” Normally that would be that but he knew better than to dictate to these droids without having their input. “Is that an acceptable amount of risk for this job?” His tone was more challenging than questioning. Hutts paid good money though, and last thing he wanted was for it to fall apart based on his own arrogance. 

> IG-88 turned their cylindrical head from the target and faced the Mandalorian. "Acceptable? Indeed. Anti-Mundis have a genetic defect that effects their accuracy. This combined with the Hutt's increased tolerance for injury suggests that eliminating the elite forces would be the correct course of action. I trust you will be taking the lead, Jango Fett. This is your plan after all. "
> 88's red eyes flickered momentarily as it turned to look back at the hole. "Alternatively, we could utilize the ventilation systems to disperse a toxin. Hutts are resiliant, and Ziro should not be adversely affected. It would help us clear the area, but it would also take away some of the...thrill,"

> HELIOS-3D surveilled the Imperial squad through the scope of its sniper rifle. It addressed the rest of the team in an assertive, mechanical tone, without taking its optical sensors off the Stormtrooper squad leader. "Regardless of your approach, I will stay on this rooftop and shoot for the Stormtrooper first. We must syncronize and focus our attacks on her, in case any single one of our attempts fails. Once she is dealt with, I will provide cover and update you on the situation above ground. When the package is secured and the sector is clear, I will await your signal to take off and fly the ship in for extraction."
> “Hutt Clan scum!” The Stormtrooper ignited her lightsaber as she pointed at the bounty hunters. In response, the Antimundi began firing at the rooftop. “So much for surprise…” Latts stated, sending her grappling boa down toward the nearest Antimundi. With a single crack of the whip, the soldier’s neck snapped, giving Latts the opportunity to jump off the roof without any trouble. “I’ll head for Ziro.” She uttered while choking another Antimundi. “Take out that Jedi!”


Period: 22BBY-19BBY The Hidden War

As the war rages on, the shifting allegiances begin to seep into the criminal underworld as Bounty Hunters find themselves on opposing sides of the conflict. Thus begins the Hidden War, where Bounty Hunters are hired to fight a series of unseen proxy wars by shadowy benefactors paying several hundred times the normal amounts. Old friends and allies are pitted against each other while other hunters find themselves forging bonds with old enemies as blood flows across the galaxy.

(Event) 21BBY: Massive Kyber Crystals are discovered in the Outer Rim planet of Utapau. The Empire and the CIS field regular forces and logistics equipment to take the fight to the opposing side and sustain mining operations in the planet. In addition, elite forces are deployed to hamper the attempts of the other side to unearth crystals. The Empire sends in Vader Team, led by Clone Commando Rancor of the Jum Rango template, to acquire as many of these crystals as possible for Project Skywalker. The CIS hires the services of Aurra Sing and places her in command of Ventress-type clones, ordering her to bring any acquired crystals to the new Foreman of the Techno Union, Walton Wesner. Finally, the Hutts send Jango Fett and Shaak Ti to the planet along with HELIOS-3D and KRONOS-327, to let both sides prepare the crystals for shipping, then steal them once the heavy lifting has been taken care of. (Bad)

(Event) 21BBY: Still at odds with her exile, the Duchess Satine places a bounty on the Mandalore Pre Vizla. Apprehensive at first, the bounty hunter Jango Fett takes on the job and fights Vizla on the moon of Conchord. A defeated Vizla imparts the dark saber to the bounty hunter and warns that Satine will never know her position again in this renewed mandalorian culture. Giving the Dark Saber to Jango now makes him the defacto leader of the Mandalorians. A fact that Darth Maul doesn’t take a liking to. (Good)


(Event) 20 BBY: The Hutt Regime’s leaders are slaughtered by a single bionic man known as “Hambrabi Sting” using a fatal toxin during a party. Kenanji and Ziro the Hutt only catch the glimpse of Sting as they pass on. The murderer immediately disappears, causing chaos for who’s to be the next leader. Because of this, the entire clan collapses under itself as Empire, CIS, and bounty hunters quickly absorb Hutt territory into their own. (Bad)


(Event) 20 BBY: With the Hutt clan’s collapse there is weakness on Tatooine. Seeing a chance to spur righteousness to the people on the planet the exiled Satine along with Kenobi and Lars lead a revolt against Jabba and push the Hutt out of power. Satine reluctantly takes up the position of governor for the planet and begins freeing slaves and installing other social reforms on the planet.
