Emerge of the Empire – An AU Fourth Movie RP
We've all seen the third installment of the prequel trilogy, but what happens when you allow Anakin's decent into darkness to take perhaps a little longer than it did in the film. What happens if he doesn't get his ass handed to him on a platter by Obi-Wan Kenobi and remains with limbs (except for the arm that Count Dooku severed) and brooding good looks intact?
We're here to take it in something of a different direction, to explore other alternatives for our tragic hero. The game starts roughly the same time A New Hope takes place. After that fateful night where Anakin Skywalker died and Darth Vader was born, where Obi-Wan and Anakin fought on Mustafar, and where Anakin should get his ass handed to him courtesy of Obi-Wan, they instead end up in a stalemate. Anakin ends up fleeing the planet, unsure whether or not Padme is alive and leaves Obi-Wan to help Padme deliver the twins early. Padme survives the delivery and after a few days makes a full recovery. Now stuck between stopping Anakin and raising both Luke and Leia on her own, Padme has to make some decisions that could turn the war.
Padme keeps her children with her, hoping to build up enough resistance to stop Vader before he gets to out of hand. Together the three remaining Skywalkers fight against the Dark Lord Vader praying to the force that they can stop the evil consuming him and the galaxy before its too late.
NOTE: At the start of this RPG, Luke and Lea are the same age they are in A New Hope.
NEEDED CHARACTERS: Anakin, Obi-Wan, the Twins and Palpatine
