A play-by-post hybrid (Legends + Canon) Star Wars RP site
Star Wars: Galaxy has a long and storied history as one of the longest lasting, oldest Star Wars RP sites to date. It was originally founded back in 2006 by two brothers who wished to see a new Star Wars RP site. SW:G as it became known has been through many trials and tribulations but with dedication and a little help from our fellow RPers we can relive those days again. Please be sure to drop an introduction topic in our Introduction forum and ask us any questions that you might have! We welcome any and all questions! If you plan on taking a vacation or a break from the site let us know as you can tell us farewell here! While you're at it join us on the official Star Wars: Galaxy Discord channel which can be found here in this conveniently placed hyperlink. Please join us on the Discord and chat with the continually growing base of players who are interested in Star Wars: Galaxy's revival as a primary Star Wars RP board!

Star Wars: Galaxy Timeline
The Emperor and his feared apprentice Darth Vader are dead. The Galactic Empire is in shambles, a contingency operation known as Operation: Cinder has been reaping havoc on the worlds of the Galactic Empire; the precise nature of the operation is unknown and the fledgling New Republic struggles underneath the weight of the decisions in protecting former Imperial worlds from the Empire. While the Galactic Empire remains in some ways in tact as an entity, the Empire has almost entirely collapsed in on itself and descended into various warlord factions who want to carve out a piece of the galaxy for themselves. While the Empire might not provide a "central" threat, the Galactic Empire provides for a large swathe of Imperial ships and military equipment in the hands of warlords who want their own Empire.
While the New Republic struggles to militarily match the might of the former Galactic Empire, Jedi Luke Skywalker has taken up the mantle of Grandmaster of the New Jedi Order and has pledged to train a new era of Jedi Knights to serve as "Knights of the New Republic". Grandmaster Skywalker has setup a Jedi academy on Yavin and has actively begun exploring the galaxy in search of a new class of force sensitives to act as his first class of Jedi Initiates. The New Republic seeking to expand itself and eventually capture of the crown jewel of the galaxy, Coruscant but efforts made have been futile as the Empire has done all it can to retain its grip on Coruscant through force and coercion. Divisions within the New Republic have already begun to show as new Senators are calling for a more aggressive military campaign against the Empire while others wish a more moderate, diplomatic approach however both groups are firmly dedicated to the New Republic.
The New Republic and the remnants of the Empire are not all that are competing for the spotlight, rumors are that Dark Jedi or fallen Jedi once held through the will of Emperor Palpatine are now surfacing and wishing to conduct their own operations for a part of the galaxy. Information has been scarce but reports have surfaced and New Republic Intelligence is actively working to chase down these leads. While the New Republic and the remnants of the Empire are in total chaos, the underworld has become alive in the wake of the Empire's grip on the galaxy loosening. Black Suns, Hutts, Pirates all have stepped up their activity in the wake of the power vacuum left by the Empire.
In a galaxy shattered by war...will you be a hero or a villain?
