About the adventure

*This adventure has been adapted from Star Wars Saga Edition to Savage Worlds* The Dawn of Defiance campaign is set during the period between Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. The exact dates are left vague so that Gamemasters can choose to run the adventure at any specific timeline they prefer within those dates. However, the campaign makes the basic assumption that the first adventure, The Traitor's Gambit, begins just a few months after the end of the Clone Wars. The overarching plot is about learning and then causing the failure of the Imperial Sarlacc Project, which is about a massive new starship 12 kilometers long—many times larger than a Star Destroyer, that is supposed to provide a critical advantage for the Empire over whatever other threat or rebellion may arise, in a galaxy where opposition to the Empire is extremely weak.
