It has been nearly a year since the events that nearly lead to the destruction of the universe occurred, and the Reborn True Sith Empire vanished without a trace. The survivors of the battle went their own separate ways, and with the absence of the RTSE, the New Republic and the Imperial Remnant have begun rebuilding. Not all is peaceful however. The mercenary Ty294 prepares and ambush on the slaver Wurak Rowan on Nar Shaddaa, but little does he know, that tracking Rowan will uncover a far more sinister plot...
Ty looked back at the team of a dozen or so mercenaries assembled behind him. They all seemed as eager to begin their mission as the man commanding them. The job was simple; break up a slave auction and capture the main slave driver. There was likely to be some resistance, but the thugs that accompanied the slavers were usually poor shots, so the mercs hoped losses would be minimal. The commanding mercenary, a tall, muscular human with a black eye-patch covering the void where he left eye had once been, gripped his shotgun tightly as he turned to the armored Zabrak crouched beside him.
"Just remember, Rowan is mine." he hissed softly, referring to the head slaver.
"Don't worry about a thing." the Zabrak replied, "I'll make sure you get your chance to take him."
"Well, let's go break some skulls." the one-eyed man said with a slight smile before looking over the rest of the mercenaries, "Okay, get ready!"
As the Zabrak placed a breech charge on the door in front of them, all the mercs readied their weapons. The charge detonated and the door flew open, revealing a large, circular room. The mercs rushed in, opening fire on the unsuspecting occupants. Several armed thugs fell dead to blaster fire immediately, while other dived for cover. Ty took a moment to survey the room; a number of guards had taken cover around the perimeter, while the center of the room was a mix of various slaves, crime lords, shady businessmen, and various other low-lifes. A podium was positioned at one end of the room, elevated slightly so all could see. The auctioneer was still frozen in shock, his had clutching a gavel that he used to signal sales and get the attention of the crowd. A pair of young, female Twi'lek slaves stood beside him, obviously the objects that had been up for bit before the interruption. Ty then spotted his target: A grey-haired Chiss making a break for the back door.
Started on April eighth, 2011, DawnBreaker Episode III was in development for over two months in a forum on moddb.com. The forum was setup by Garyn Dakari, and consisted of several threads.
The Story thread, where each of the eight authors would take turns posting, and the actual story was created that way.
The chat thread, where the authors would talk out of story.
The tavern, where the authors would post in character, but there were no turns, hardly any rules, and nothing that happened actually counted in the story.
Over two months after the story was started, it was stopped due to several fights amongst some of the authors, which resulted in SithLordDarkon, one of the authors, being removed from the project. The loss of one of the authors meant that the story could not continue. The remaining authors restarted the story from the beginning, on June seventeenth, 2011. Later, towards the end of October 2011, Deadmerit left the project, and much of the story was redone and revised.
