Opening Crawl


With the power of the dark side of the Force at his command and the might of the Empire to unleash, Darth Vader is the most dangerous being in the galaxy. But he is not without challengers.

The cyborg Beilert Valance, along with fellow with bounty hunters Honnah, Urrr’k, Chio Fan [sic] and Dengar, was contracted by the mysterious organization the Hidden Hand to achieve one goal: kill Vader.

But Valance’s team has been wiped out by the Dark Lord, and Valance’s last shot to take him out with an EMP device fizzled…thanks to the betrayal of Dengar!
