The Republic has never been in such a precarious position in over 1,000 years. In the year 19 BBY, former Jedi Master Count Dooku lost faith in the Galactic Republic and formed the Confederacy of Independent Systems, better known as the Separatists, to combat Republic forces and pave the way for a new political system to take its place. Planets across the galaxy were subsequently torn between the two warring sides and brought into economic and military chaos that reverberated into even the most isolated regions of galactic space. In an effort to consolidate support for the Republic’s cause and efficiently manage resources and troop movements to more effectively combat the Separatists, the Republic has formed a Council made up of Republic officials, allied factions, and Jedi soldiers. In order to see the galaxy through this tumultuous time and ensure the Republic remains standing once the fog of war has cleared, the Council members must cooperate with one another despite having a large variety of agendas and ideologies. The Council must seriously deliberate about which outcomes are more beneficial for everyone when major decisions must be made, learn when to choose diplomacy over military action even when it comes to the vilest of factions, and ultimately form military strategies when all else fails. May the Force guide you all to ensure the Republic lives to see another day.
