Star Wars: Freedom In The Galaxy Campaign

My friend Dan started his own Star Wars RPG (role playing game) campaign over the weekend.  It takes place at the beginning of the Rebellion Era, but before the Battle of Yavin.  Dan's campaign has two unique features.  First, it is a Dark Side campaign.  That is, we're working for the Galactic Empire

But fear not, loyal citizens of the Empire, my characters are eager to...

...see new worlds...

...make things right, and... their part and serve!
