Star Wars 77
As you are probably aware, the Star Wars Saga came to an end last December with the release of The Rise of Skywalker. Controversial and divisive as that movie was, it left the audience with a very interesting question – what happens next?
There is no lore on the era following Episode IX, and the movie doesn’t offer much in the way of hints as to the galaxy’s future. This leaves us with an opportunity to see new and exciting stories emerge and redefine the Star Wars universe. I was looking forward to seeing how the creative minds behind Star Wars would approach the situation, but with Project Luminous – the multimedia project that serves as the next stage of Star Wars storytelling – having been announced as oriented toward pre-Episode I content, exploration of the post-Episode IX era seems far off.
With that in mind, I had an idea.
This project, Star Wars 77, is set 77 years after the events of Episode IX (that number chosen as a reference to the 1977 theatrical release of the original Star Wars). As it says in the thread title, this is a post-Episode IX sandbox worldbuilding and roleplaying project. I would like to collaboratively develop a new face of the Star Wars galaxy with you and then dive into it through a play-by-post roleplaying adventure. I don't have much in the way of predetermined notions as to the direction this will take, and we have a ton of freedom to explore and develop a story however we like, which together should make this a pretty different and fun project.
