Before there was DLOS Star Wars RPG, there was the DLOS Star Wars Sim Organization. Although now disbanded, the old sim group is what directly evolved into the present day RPG group which spawned one of the most successful Star Wars RPG webpages ever created.
The storyline used for the old sim group was rather warped when compared to what is generally accepted as "basic Star Wars history" in that we started our game after the Battle of Endor and basically went from there (see history section for more details). Noting this, several things in this supplement may seem a bit odd or in error but please keep in mind that this is what we used to base all of our games off of and does not contain much, if any, actual official Lucasfilms or West End Games information.
This supplement will most likely not prove all that useful or interesting to anyone who wasn't a part of the old sim group or isn't a part of the new RPG group. However, if you're looking for an alternate campaign setting, then it may actually prove of some use to you.
Chapter 1 - The DLOS Storyline (recorded as events unfolded)
This is the history of the post-Endor galaxy as recorded after each week of simming in DLOS. Many details may be lacking and almost all of it does not hold true to what the official Star Wars timeline reports.
(ASW4 = After Star Wars IV: A New Hope)
(ABE = After Battle of Endor)
4 years ASW4:
The Battle of Ender occurs. Emperor Palpatine and Lord Vader are killed by the Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker on the second Death Star while a Rebel fleet assaults the Death Star that they believed was not operational.

A massive search of the caverns beneath the Imperial Palace results in the rescue of the real Emperor Ynehtam who proves to be even more wickedly evil than remembered. A long search for the escaped clone Emperor fails and he is never seen again.
4-7 years ABE:
The galaxy trembled under the relentless assault of the Duskhan League. Hundreds of worlds were decimated, countless billions were massacred. With the Empire's destruction of the Yevethan homeworld, N'zoth, the main Duskhan League battle fleet massed together and jumped to the opposite side of the galaxy to launch a major offensive against a relatively undefended side of the Galactic Core. The Yevetha, unknowing that the territory they entered was controlled by the powerful Imperial Warlord Zsinj, engaged Zsinj's forces repeatedly over several months of conflict which finally resulted in the death of Warlord Zsinj and the defeat of the Duskhan League. Imperial commanders, taking advantage of the devastation sent military forces into Zsinj's territory, bringing entire sectors under Imperial rule and gathering the ravaged forces of Zsinj back into the Imperial military.
The New Republic, still recovering from the massacre at the Battle of Pulug quietly rebuilt their forces, making alliances with various worlds, and convincing the rich and powerful Hapes Consortium to rejoin them. In a brilliant and yet tragic move, Fleet Admiral Hiram Drayson, the Supreme Commander of the Republic Navy, took on the Death Star III (the completed Death Star Prototype) at nearly point blank range. Nearly all of the New Republic task force sent on the mission was destroyed. In a last ditched effort, Fleet Admiral Drayson ordered his MC80B star cruiser into hyperspace... directly into the superlaser focus lens of the Death Star. The impact was so great that it set off a massive chain reaction which ripped through the station leaving a large and charred framework, and killing all but 56,019 Imperials on board. Fleet Admiral Drayson, and all on board the MC80B Mon Remonda were lost.
In response to the destruction of the Death Star III, and small problems in their newly conquered territory, the Empire began a long campaign meant to strengthen their already massive military forces. Emperor Weji Ynehtam, tiring from long years of war, encouraged Tenebris Janus S`tarn, a prominent Dark Jedi, to rise to the rank of Dark Lord of Sith and to serve the Emperor above all others. Grand Admiral Geraad Kun, with the command of the Empire's most infamous warship, the Executor-class Super Star Destroyer Devastator, brought down a tight grip upon the Core and Colonies, securing their safeties, and allowing them to prosper under the New Order. Fleet Admiral Thern Moudurn, at the command of the Second Imperial Fleet, put an end to centuries worth of terror, destruction and piracy brought on by the mighty Blood Lust pirates. High Admiral Akura Bosh deployed the Third Imperial Fleet along the borders between the Empire and the Republic, and putting a hault to the Republic advance, allowing Imperial forces time to gather for the final conflict.
Not long after the destruction of the Death Star III, a clone of Emperor Palpatine arose. Forcing Imperial Warlord Delvardus into submission, Palpatine took command of Delvardus' forces and launched an all out assault on Coruscant, capitol of the Empire. The battle ensued for days sending Imperial warship against Imperial warship. Countless millions died, and in the end, Coruscant fell to Palpatine. For several months, Palpatine's forces ruled over Coruscant and brought the Galactic Core into a civil war. After a long and involved civil war, Emperor Weji Ynehtam personally led the final assault on Coruscant, thousands of square kilometers of the planet were leveled in the bombardment, and Palpatine's clone was hunted down and killed. The Empire feebily brought the Galactic Core back under its rule, and began rebuilding from months of civil war.
Chapter 2 - The Empire in DLOS
Commander Pol Daelo, a rising young officer within the Imperial Navy was the "lucky" one that drew the short straw. It was he who had to deliver the bad news to the new emperor and given the choice he would rather deliver it to either Lord Vader or the late Emperor Palpatine because he knew how they would react, they'd most likely kill him on spot. But this new emperor had yet to set a reputation as the type to lash out at the innocent messenger who was unlucky enough to be given the task of delivering bad news. Not knowing how Emperor Ynehtam would react was more than frightening for the young commander as he stood outside of the door to the emperor's ready room.
He reached out a shaking hand to press the ringer on the door to announce his arrival just as the door slid open itself. Standing on the other side of the door was High Admiral Essen Balher, who definately had quite a reputation for venting his anger on anyone and everyone he saw fit. Commander Daelo promptly snapped to attention and exchanged a sharp salute with the admiral who blatantly ignored him and went about his business.
"Is there something that I may help you with, commander?" Emperor Ynehtam spoke with a confident firmness in his voice which gave those who were not familiar with him personally a sense that they were with someone of great power.
"Yes sir, I... we that is... just received reports from the Palvar Sector in the Mid Rim," Daelo was amazed that he was able to even stutter out that much. Hopefully the emperor wouldn't be up for a lengthy conversation about politics or anything else for that matter. Daelo swallowed and walked briskly toward the emperor, placed the datapad with the reports on the emperor's desk and snapped back to attention.
The emperor picked up the datapad and read through its belongings for several minutes, not dismissing Commander Daelo but not acknowledging his militaristic form in the room either. Upon finishing reading the report the emperor lightly and carefully replaced the datapad on his desk and looked up at Daelo, "Did you know the contents of this report, commander?"
"No sir," he didn't stutter at all that time, perhaps this won't be so bad after all.
"I see. And I also suspect that you do not realize that nearly seventy percent of all Imperial forces under Palpatine are not choosing to allign themselves with us even though we are the ones in control of Coruscant? No, of course not, such trivial information is not of your concern."
"I... well that is... I..."
"This report comes directly from loyal agents in the Palvar Sector, apparently Moff Jerr Uhlmann has chosen to join the ever popular group of rogue warlords instead of fighting with us for the good of the Empire. These power hungry moffs and grand admirals just might mean our final demise. You are dismissed, commander."
Daelo visibly relaxed realizing that the emperor wouldn't be taking out his anger upon him. In fact, the emperor didn't seem all that angry. He nodded and spun on his heel with a new found energy and took two steps toward the door before a roar of a blaster following instantly by an extremely painful and powerful force hitting his back through him onto his face. The smell of ozone and charred flesh filled the parts of his lungs that weren't vaporized as he gasped his final breaths.
After the death of Emperor Palpatine at the Battle of Endor the Empire was cast into a state of complete and utter disarry. Grand Admiral Weji Ynehtam commanding a battle group in the Outer Rim, left his command and sped back to Coruscant on board of his Executor-class super star destroyer Devastator after hearing of the horrible news of the Alliance victory at Endor.
Upon arriving at Coruscant Grand Admiral Ynehtam was able to calm the general populace and reorganize what Imperial forces that still remained loyal. Ynehtam put out a call across the galaxy for the Empire to remain intact and strike back at the Alliance, who now called themselves the New Republic, and claim vengeance on their fallen Emperor. However, many high ranking Imperial admirals and moffs decided that they were better off running the Empire and thus, the Imperial warlords were born.
Ynehtam quickly learned that the Empire would need to regain strength quickly if they were to survive against the quickly growing New Republic. In the first few months after securing his power Ynehtam commanded an extensive hit and fade campaign against minor New Republic worlds to force them into spreading out their fleet in order to defend as many member worlds as possible and thus leaving their main fleet more vulnerable.
Even though these assaults were working to achieve their goal, many of the Imperial commanders under Ynehtam feared that the Republic would soon take Coruscant and there would be no way of stopping them and many fled from Ynehtam's command rather than face an almost certain death in battle of a life long imprisonment by the Republic. Nearly six months after the Battle of Endor, Imperial forces loyal to Coruscant had dramatically decreased, leaving Ynetham with only a mere seven Imperator-class star destroyers (ISDs), his flagship and several smaller capital ships.
In an attempt to raise morale among Imperial forces, Grand Admiral Ynehtam declared himself as the second Emperor to the mighty Galactic Empire and instituted several changes in the Empire's hierarchy, such as the forming of the soon-to-be infamous Imperial High Command (IHC).
The Empire and the New Republic engaged in a prolonged conflict for nearly four years before reaching a turning point. The then finished Death Star Prototype was unleashed upon the Republic, world after world surrendered to the Empire or was faced with certain destruction. The Republic Fleet fled to the rim where they gathered for a massive all or nothing assault on the Death Star, unfortunately for the Republic, the Death Star found them before they were ready to launch. The massacre that followed resulted in only a handful of Imperial casualties and minor damage to the Death Star and the elimination of over 90% of the Republic's naval forces. The New Republic began to crumble, only a cease-fire offered by Ynehtam kept the galaxy from falling back into a state of disarray as Ynehtam knew that he did not have the firepower to keep the galaxy under full Imperial rule yet.
Inside of the Imperial machine, locked from the eyes of the public, the Empire was a cesspool of constant debate and conflict as advisors, aides, admiral and generals all disputed amongst themselves. This is very typical of almost any government, especially one of such magnitude, but this extreme political conflict within the Empire often times threatened to destroy it.
When it appeared that drastic measures would have to be taken in order to preserve the Empire's floundering pride and power the emperor did something that shocked the entire galaxy. He married.
His new empress, Empress Red, was grudgingly accepted among the citizens of the Empire as well as the emperor's friends and servants. It was widely suspected across the galaxy that it was all nothing more than a vast farse in an attempt to sway the public's opinion of the Empire. After a few months of a seemingly normal marriage the Empress began to be finally accepted by the public and hated by those high up in the Imperial bureaucracy due to her arrogance and short-temperedness.
The emperor's mental health began to degrade, something which was kept a tight secret by his top advisors, and the Empress found herself enjoying new liberties as she constantly tested and expanded upon her political power.
When the emperor finally went clinically insane and fled from Coruscant just after ordering Dark Wing squadron, the most elite starfighter squadron in the Empire, to bomb Imperial Palace the Empress also dissapeared. It was soon revealed that the emperor was indeed not himself but a clone of himself which was created around the same time as Robert Lemelisk's clones were created. The real emperor had been kept in the ancient dungeons below the palace for nearly two years while his clone took his place.
The real emperor returned and was greatly enraged and consumed with the idea of vengeance. The Empire quickly altered almost all of the policies and laws set by the clone emperor (the existance of the clone is something which only a handful of individuals ever knew about) and the Imperial war machine was put back to full strength.
The Imperial High Command
The Imperial High Command was formed by Emperor Ynehtam to give his top commanders a better sense of control and power within the Empire by giving them no more than a fancy title and a little bit of say in how the Empire would be run.
The Imperial High Command had seats for each Imperial Fleet Commander (usually a High Admiral, sometimes higher or lower depending upon circumstances) which ranged from only two and up to five fleets at the height of the new Empire, a seat for the director of the Ubiqtorate (Imperial Intelligence), one for the supreme commander of the Imperial Army, one for a COMPNOR representative (this position was replaced often and was usually someone of high rank in the Imperial Security Bureau) as well as a single seat for the head of the Imperial Research and Development.
The Imperial High Command was mainly used as a political tool to further the power of the Emperor and rebuild the Empire. The IHC was generally only called to meeting in the most dire of emergencies (something that would warrant bringing each member from the far reaches of the Empire to the Emperor's flagship) or if the Emperor had something of which needed to be addressed.
The Imperial High Command wasn't without its own bit of drama. Several members were executed and/or tortured during the meetings as punishment for various acts of treason and other wrong droings. The first such incident was the execution of the Supreme Imperial Army Commander, a General Jayell ("JL") for attempting to organize a coup among the other members. The entire IHC was taken to the top of the Imperial Palace, where, as more of an example than punishment, General Jayell was thrown from the top of the palace to a very bloody death several kilometers below.
The Emperor privately encouraged rivalries among members as it promoted greater loyalty and efficiency among those officers competing for the Emperor's favoritism. It wasn't all that uncommon for the Emperor to privately call in each member of the IHC to privately tell them that they were his most favored officer.
The Imperial Navy
The Imperial Navy under Emperor Ynehtam was slightly different than the navy under Emperor Palpatine, mainly due to the lack of resources and starships to sufficiently protect and hold Imperial territory. The Navy's new mission profile was to protect and hold Imperial space while a specially designated attack fleet (whose combat ships were rotated with defense ships periodically) was deployed for both reinforcement and offensive actions.
During the first few years following the Battle of Endor the Imperial Navy saw several new commanders make names for themselves including Grand Admiral Thern Moudorn (who was later demoted for classified reasons and then assasinated by Republic SpecOps some seven years later), Grand Admiral Geraad Kun (not related to the ancient sithlord), Admiral Akura Bosh and even Rear Admiral Robert Lemelisk (see Imperial Research and Development).
Nearly 90% of the Empire's military budget was devoted to the construction and maintenance of capital combat starships. Under Emperor Ynehtam, the Imperial Navy introduced several new starship designs as well as further deploying both readily available and previously designed starships in an attempt to keep the New Republic from being able to design an effective counter weapon to any specific ship.
Approximately eight months following the Battle of Endor, Emperor Ynehtam located the construction site of a new class of command ship that Emperor Palpatine had began building several months before his death. This ship, the Eclipse, was the pinnacle of modern Imperial technology, combining technology developed with the older Executor-class super star destroyers and the superlaser technology in the Death Stars. Vast amounts of resources were diverted from other construction projects in order to complete the Eclipse as soon as possible. Two years later, the Eclipse left the stardocks and flew into history.
Other new starship designs included the Wraith, based off of an alternative design to the Eclipse, as well as several new cruiser and starfighter designs that were deployed in at least limited numbers to select commands.
Imperial Starfighter Organization
The Imperial Sourcebook didn't go into detail about Imperial starfighters, a Sienar Fleet Systems advertisement that displayed pictures of the TIE/ln, TIE/gt, TIE bomber, and TIE interceptor was as close as it came. Since the Imperial starfighters in the New Galactic Empire were organized the same way as in the old Empire, Imperial starfighter organization will be explained in detail here.
Imperial starfighters are fairly standardized in Imperial protocol and are organized into several subgroups and catagories. The standard TIE wing is composed of six squadrons which are each comprised of three flights of four TIE fighters each.
According to standard Imperial protocol, TIEs are not to be deployed in anything less than flight strength unless circumstances prevent this from happening. When the Empire had a handful of TIE Defenders, those Imperial commanders that had them at their disposal often deployed them in less than flight strength, stating that a single TIE Defender was equivalent to at least two or more TIE/ln. This, however, was the only real exception to the rule.
All starfighters, all starships for that matter, tend to be classified according to a specific role that they were designed for and/or succeed in performing. There are four main starfighter classifications that the Empire acknowledges as a requirement to further extend the fighting capacity of its numerous TIE fighters. These classifications are space superiority, interception, bomber/heavy assault fighter, and reconnaissance. In practice, a well commanded combination of craft from each catagory can prove to be a devastatingly effective weapon.
During a deployment of more than one squadron of Imperial starfighters there will typically be a Wing Commander that all squadron leaders will report to and who is a squadron leader himself (usually of the leader of the squadron with the more advanced fighters). Each squadron leader is of the rank Commander while his second in command (chosen by him) may either be a Second Lieutenant or a Commander himself. All other members of the squadron range in rank from Pilot to Lieutenant.
TIE Pilot Ranks Typical Position Equivalent Navy Rank
Wing Commander Wing Commander Captain
Commander Squadron Leader Commander

It is important to also remember that there are several other people attached to an Imperial TIE squadron other than the pilots. Maintaining starfighters involves regular maintenance overhauls after every flight, especially after combat (because combat puts added stress on the craft). A squadron may have as few as one and up to as many as a few dozen technicianss that do nothing but keep the squadron's ships in fighting condition.
At the Empire's height, a standard TIE wing would consist of 50% standard line fighters (TIE/ln) while the other half was comprised of a variety of other starfighters with more specialized roles. By the time that Grand Admiral Thrawn began his campaign against the New Republic, the standard
TIE wing was altered greatly.
Standard Pre-Yavin TIE Wing:
48 TIE starfighters (or TIE/ln)
12 TIE/gt (or TIE bombers)
6 TIE/bc boarding craft
6 TIE/rc recon starfighters
Standard TIE Wing as of Endor:
12 TIE interceptors
12 TIE bombers (or TIE/gt in lower priority commands)
6 TIE/rc recon starfighters (or TIE Vanguards*)
2 TIE/fc fire control starfighters
3 TIE/sr scouts
1 TIE/sh shuttle (or TIE/ts trainer/shuttle)
Standard Thrawn Era TIE Wing (Endor + 5 years):
12 TIE interceptors (or A-9 Vigilance interceptors)
12 TIE avengers (or 12 more TIE interceptors)
12 Scimitar assault bombers (or TIE bombers)
6 TIE/rc recon starfighters (or TIE Vanguards*)
2 TIE/fc fire control starfighters
3 TIE/sr scouts
1 TIE/sh shuttle
* The TIE Vanguard is in fact a completely different design than the TIE/rc. The TIE/rc is a fighter variant for reconnaissance missions bearing a close resemblance to the TIE fighter; the TIE Vanguard is more of a dedicated reconnaissance craft.
Note that the above does not take into account some of the rarer and limited production model starfighters such as the highly advanced TIE Defender and the older failed TIE landing craft and TIE boarding craft, which were both variants of the TIE Bomber design.
There are other starships which should be considered starfighters by definition but are considered too powerful by Imperial Command to be considered starfighters as it would make their famed TIE fighters look inferior. The first of the vessels was the widely deployed Skipray Blastboat that was often assigned to patrol duty and sometimes found on board of a Star Destroyer. Shortly before the Battle of Yavin the Empire introduced its first Alpha-class Starwing Assault Gunboats which proved
only to be a weaker and more expensive version of the already proven Skipray. During the attempted coup by Admiral Zaarin, shortly after the Battle of Hoth, the Empire unleashed what was perhaps the most powerful starfighter ever created, the Missileboat. This craft proved wickedly effective, incorporating new technologies such as the SLAM overdrive engines and a starfighter scale tractor beam projector. However, the cost of the Missileboat was its final demise, only around eleven of the craft were ever constructed and five of those were destroyed in the final skirmishes against Zaarin's forces.
Imperial Research and Development
Under Emperor Ynehtam, Imperial Research and Development grew to be a very prominent aspect of the Imperial military in only a matter of months. The Emperor personally appointed Doctor Robert Lemelisk, son of the man who designed the Death Star, to the position of Director of Research and Development.
While reviewing some of the latest information reports coming from the slicer droids that were constantly extracting new information of the late Emperor, Ynehtam came across something most interesting, the location of the research station where the Death Star itself was designed. Ynehtam departed for the location on board of the Devastator. After a small incident, the Maw Cluster was under Imperial control and Admiral Daala and her four ISDs were to remain on staff to protect it.
Much of the Research and Development's labs and personnel were relocated to the Maw Cluster within a few months where a restoration and enhancement project (which would take years to complete) was begun on the Death Star Prototype which was unexpectedly found along with other new weapons of mass destruction.
Under the direction of Doctor Lemelisk, the Maw Cluster made several highly advanced and debatable technological advancements that included refined superlaser technology, the development of a super ion cannon (based off of the superlaser), the completion of the Death Star Prototype, the duplication of the New Republic's hyperwave torpedoes and a highly controversial wormhole project in which the good doctor was able to create the galaxy's first stable artificial wormhole. However, the wormhole project and all related material were lost when the new Death Star was destroyed during an all out assault by the battered Republic Navy.
Dr. Lemelisk often sent rather casual reports which were intended on updating other members of the Imperial High Command as to his progress on various projects which concerned them. One such report is as seen here:

Members of the Imperial High Command:
Starting fresh this new year also meant forgetting some ideas that I had last year. The cloaks didn't work out due to some conflicting ideals among my staff. Some felt that there might actually be affects on those we used it on. Or that a ship might not reappear. What do they know? So for the sake of arguement, I have decided not to do that project.
On a brighter side, with a new year does come some newer ideas. This one I am about to explain, or try to, is a real whopper. Bear with me I might not get it right even after I give this to Emperor Ynehtam. The general concept is to eliminate all forms of hyperdrive and create a new method of space travel. This would require, I believe, some anti-matter technology. Why? might you ask. Well, the idea is to create an artificial 'wormhole' if you will. I realize that that is kind of the general concept behind hyperspace travel, but the theory I have behind this is if we create an anti-matter field of sorts, space travel would only be like walking into the next room. The hyperwave torpedo does this... sort of. I talked with the emperor a while back - I don't remember if it was his clone or not so don't ask which - about something like this. He, at the time, seemed enthusiastic. Whether his attitude or perspective has changed since then, we will find out. But to answer the question, what advantage will this have for our fleet and the such... space travel reduce down to a matter of minutes or even seconds depending on what we choose to put through the wormhole. I will delve further into this as time progresses.
Next item of business. That would most definetely have to be the Yevethans. It is a hot issue right now and I am not in the mood to stand back and watch you all have fun taking care of them. I was sent Yevethan corpses and I have not taken time to figure them out yet. That will be done in good time though. My suggestion to those involved in the Yevethan counterstrike, is to use infrared sensors and scan them to death. I am hearing evil things like them using holos. If that is the truth, we can get around this simply by using the equipment we have.

Little is known of the Imperial Army division known as the NRSFG. In fact, no one has ever determined just what the acronym stands for other than the Imperial High Command as well as those officers directly involved with it. All that is really known about it comes from a transmission from High Admiral Shuntly and Surface Marshall Territh to COMPNOR's Select Committee that was intercepted by Imperial Intelligence's Analysis Bureau and later declassified which reads as follows:
Destination: COMPNOR, Select Committee
Source: Desk of High Admiral Shuntly
Clearance Code: 7O-U49JM-PP9.3
Authorization Codes: BRN-2B-GA, IM2-GO0-D.4U
Subject: SAGroup Division Proposal
I propose a new SAGroup division which will serve as the basis for very high quality troops, which can be distributed throughout COMPNOR and thus be of great service to the Empire. The core of the division will be taken from the present Army division classified as the NRSFG. Surface Marshall Territh and I have discussed this and agreed upon the following:
- The current NRSFG recruitment standards shall be kept, and possibly two subgroups shall be incorporated, one for the current highly experienced members and the other for new recruits who need extensive training and actual missions under their belts.
- I, Shuntly, shall continue to act as the Head of the NRSFG, but a COMPNOR appointed official (if wanted) may share equal command of the unit.
- The current command structure in the NRSFG is compatable with COMPNOR regulations and requires only minor changes.
- The NRSFG shall have a renaming to go along with its new position.
Possible names are:
Imperial Retalliation Batallion (IRB)
Advanced Special Forces Division (ADSFOD)
Unique Imperial Line of Defense (UNILOD)
Imperial Loyalist Corps (ILC)
Elite Assault and Defence Corps (ELADEC)
We trust a response to arrive after proper consideration time has been given to this matter. We also hope that you approve of our goals to incorporate the best crack troops in the Empire into the ubiquitous COMPNOR organization.

Chapter 3 - Key Imperial Officers
The good doctor couldn't help but worry slightly. Just why had the emperor gone to such lengths to bring him and his clones all to Coruscant? Were he and his identical counterparts in for some sort of punishment for some unseen reason or were they simply here to be praised for their tireless work in the name of the New Galactic Empire?
Dr. Robert Lemelisk, son of Bevel Lemelisk, stood faces his eight clones who he often took great pleasure in ordering about. While waiting for the emperor to arrive in his own throne room... just where he could be no one would know... and had ordered all of them to stand in a classic military formation. A squad of me, Lemelisk thought smirkingly.
The mighty doors to the cavernous throne room opened with an exceedingly thunderous rumble, mostly for effect to make visits to Imperial Palace be given a sense that they were indeed entering a place of power. Emperor Ynehtam, clad in his custom-made black uniform, based mostly upon those wore by the circle of Grand Admirals under Palpatine, entered the room flanked on either side by members of the infamous and mysterious Imperial Royal Guard. What is that in the emperor's hand? A blaster carbine? Yes yes... I recognize it... a BlasTech E14. Lemelisk was familiar with almost every weapon used by Imperial forces since he and his clone counterparts were often charged with the duty of researching ways to improve their efficiency. Why would he be carrying a blaster carbine?
The emperor approached the real Lemelisk with a cold and heartless look in his eyes, nothing new as he wasn't known as being a cheerfully pleasant man. "Bob," the emperor remarked, "are these all of your clones? Are any missing from our gathering here?" Ynehtam let the blaster carbine dangle at his side with his finger on the trigger.
"Well, why yes it is, sire. Now might I ask why we are honored with being brought to the palace?"
The emperor nodded and slowly walked around behind the squad of clone scientists who remained standing in their military formation, a few becoming clearly paranoid about the entire situation. "You train them well dear Bob, they so trustingly stand here in a four-by-two formation just like a squad or soldiers awaiting orders.
Before Lemelisk could decide how to respond the low roar of a blaster carbine echoed through the room followed by a dull thud... then another and another thud and so on. Lemelisk knew what'd he see even before he turned around. Spinning on his heel he saw the emperor casually blowing away the steam rising from the barrel of his blaster carbine and all eight of his clones laying sprawled out across the ground, only a few with something even coming close to resembling heads.
"Oh, and just in case I didn't tell you, I hate clones. Good day doctor."
In the DLOS storyline the Empire was blessed with constant and loyal player characters that helped to maintain the overall stability of the New Galactic Empire in such challenging times.
Emperor Weji Ynehtam
Emperor Ynehtam began his military career early in the days of the Empire and served on several starships ranging from modified Old Republic dreadnaughts to the most visible sign of the Empire's power, the Imperial Star Destroyer.
Ynehtam's first command was on board the Victory Star Destroyer Accumula, which was deployed to the Outer Rim under the direct command of High Admiral (Moff) Tote Baka in the Shezi Sector. After personally hunting down and completely eliminating a local band of pirates which had plagued the sector for many years, then Captain Ynehtam was promoted to the rank of Line Captain and given full command of the Imperial Star Destroyer Maelstrome. Years later Ynehtam finally reaches the rank of Grand Admiral and is given command of the Executor-class Super Star Destroyer Devastator.
After the death of Emperor Palpatine at the Battle of Endor the Empire was cast into a state of complete and utter disarry. Grand Admiral Weji Ynehtam commanding a battle group in the Outer Rim, left his command and sped back to Coruscant on board of the Devastator after hearing of the horrible news of the Alliance victory at Endor.
Upon arriving at Coruscant Grand Admiral Ynehtam was able to calm the general populace and reorganize what Imperial forces that still remained loyal. Ynehtam put out a call across the galaxy for the Empire to remain intact and strike back at the Alliance, who now called themselves the New Republic, and claim vengeance on their fallen Emperor. However, many high ranking Imperial admirals and moffs decided that they were better off running the Empire and thus, the Imperial warlords were born. Ynehtam quickly learned that the Empire would need to regain strength quickly if they were to survive against the quickly growing New Republic.
While creating clones of himself to insure that he would always remain in power one way or another, Ynehtam made the mistake of interacting with one of his clones who later imprisoned him in the caverns below the Imperial Palace for nearly two years before the clone's true identity was discovered and Ynehtam was finally rescued by loyal Imperial forces.
Emperor Ynehtam, unlike the majority of the galaxy, was slightly force sensitive and was able to perfect some techniques during his imprisonment under the Imperial Palace. His powers were never great enough to even aspire to becoming as powerful as any of the Dark Lords of the Sith or even to be a pitifully weak Jedi Knight.

Weji is rarely seen out of his black Imperial uniform which was based off of his old white Grand Admiral's uniform. On occasion, he also wears a black cloak or cape to accent his already dark appearance. His hair is a dark, with streaks of grey here and there. There are fine lined-wrinkles on his brow. His eyes are blue, burning with an unseen electricity (not literally).
Weji demands total loyalty, any who do not give their best in their service to him often cease living. He is not one to give second chances unless he sees a personal gain in granting one. He keeps several hidden agendas and will rarely give a straight answer, instead leaving those under his rule in a state of confusion and wonder.

Much mystery surrounds Empress Red. It is almost certain that Red was not her real name, however, there is no physical proof of this. She came into the center of the Imperial bureaucracy almost overnight by marrying then Emperor Weji Ynehtam.
Some say that Red was nothing more than a public relations move to boost the approval ratings of the Emperor. She kept a low profile with reguards to the public but was privately known as a terror by the Emperor's top advisors as she often times through her weight as Empress to get her way.
She mysteriously dissappeared after it was secretly revealed that the Emperor was not the Emperor at all, but a degrading clone. The clone fled and the real Emperor was located in ancient dungeons beneath Imperial Palace where he had been kept for several years (around the same time as Red's appearance). While the real Emperor never commented on it, all of his top advisors believe that Red was nothing more than a key piece in an ongoing conspiricy to destroy the Empire from the inside.
Name: Empress Red
Type: Empress of the New Galactic Empire
Height: 1.68 meters
The Empress was quite attractive in a very evil and devious way. Her dark eyes, skin and hair often times made her appear much more intimidating that perhaps she really was. She always wore the most extravegant clothing, the best the Empire could afford.
The Empress, publically, was a very quiet individual. However, those who knew her in person knew well enough to keep their distance and to watch what they said and did around her.

Grand Admiral Geraad Kun
Geraad Kun was born on Corellia, and later enrolled in the Empire after his parents were allegedly killed in a Rebel raid on an Imperial space station. He started as a gunboat pilot on the SSD Devastator, where he served under the then Grand Admiral Weji in the Marettan sector. He soon rose through the ranks until he was promoted to Vice Admiral, appointed Fleet Commander in the revived Empire led by Emperor Weji, and given command of the Executor-class Super Star Destroyer Devastator. After fighting numerous battles, he was promoted to Grand Admiral.

Grand Admiral Thern Moudurn
Thern Moudurn first served with the New Republic as their Admiral, but he found their slow diplomatic ways a waste of time. They spent too much on voting and not enough on action. Moudurn then defected to the Empire and became the executive officer on the Imperial Star Destroyer Maelstrome. From there he was promoted to the rank of Commodore and given command of the Maelstrome. Through countless battles he received the rank of Admiral and was placed in charge of the Outer Rim Defense Fleet, with his command ship the Wraith. He finally recieved the rank of Grand Admiral after the transfer of Grand Admiral Geraad Kun to the position of Moff and governor of the Core Sectors.

High Admiral/General Shuntly
Shuntly was raised by a group of natives in the forest of Rishnak, learning valuable survival and ground combat skills. In his tribe he was considered a Googerfloo, a master warrior. He stayed with his tribe until he was 14, when he was captured by some men that would become the first members of the NRSFG. These men taught him the ways of the Empire, as well as more personal things. He promptly joined the Naval Academy, learning the ways of a naval officer. Unfortunately, he never seemed to have made the registration lists, and remained at the rank of Flight Officer for some time doing random missions for the Empire.
Finally, he was discovered and became an Ensign on the bridge of the ISD Maelstrome, serving under Thern Moudurn. He soon became a Lt. Commander and commanding officer of the VSD Dark Star. A few drinks and a bit later, Shuntly was the executive officer of the Devastator under Geraad Kun. Shuntly moved on to being the commanding officer of ISD Vengeance, which he lost in a futile ramming attempt on a Ssi-Ruuvi K'nass class cruiser (Big Ass) before being reassigned again to Thern Moudurn, this time as executive officer of the entire Outer Rim fleet. The rank of Commodore came with the job, and Shuntly worked on ideas and a ship design.
Then General Jayell proved to be a traitor, and was quickly executed. A new Imperial Planetary Forces leader was needed, and Shuntly having continued refining his ground combat skills immediately volunteered. Shuntly, at the age of 24, became a General and made the leap from Navy to Army. Equipped with skills in all areas of combat, Shuntly is considered a valuable asset to the Empire and continues planning for all areas of the Empire.

Shuntly is roughly 1.83 meters in height, averaging around 80 kilograms. He has dark brown hair and pale hazel eyes. He lived in the forest with his clan of humans before they were enlightened by the Empire. They worshipped the Squirrel, and somehow had the ability to become like the Squirrel, bettering themselves with its power. If you were to examine his left buttocks cheek, you would find a tatoo of the powerful rodent.
