Now it's the eve of a new generation. The Empire, the culmination of centuries of manipulation and corruption, has been defeated by...children. The New Republic likes to believe that they can sit behind the controls but in truth, their utopian ideals are laced with shortcomings and naivete. In spite of all they have accomplished, war still pervades and the chaos that planted itself so long ago, continues to thrive as the factions of the Empire split and the New Republic loses its grasp on everything it so recently gained.
It is time for my people to march again into the dynamic of the crumbling galaxy. It's time to give rise to a new order; the rise of the Mandalorians."
-excerpts from the logs of Boba Fett. Standard year: 23 ABY.
By 24 ABY, Deathwatch was long gone. There were still individuals and perhaps very small pockets of Mandalorians who proclaimed to be members of the clan...but as a unified group, they were over.
As stated on the Wiki page, Kal Skirata (a True Mandalorian) felt that the Death Watch—at least its incarnation under Tor Vizsla—was more interested in theft and other crime rather than their supposed goals of reinstating a Mandalorian empire. In other words, they lost sight of their goal and reduced themselves to crime, using their "mission" as a guise under which to operate. Fett is a bit more disciplined and won't tolerate this kind of distraction.
Within the framework of the lore I am creating for the mod, old survivors of Deathwatch or perhaps those who sympathized with them will eventually find a home within Boba's reorganized Mandalorian society...as long as they prescribe themselves to the TRUE and original aspirations of their former clan.
Boba's vision here is to, in a sense, fulfill the original mission of Deathwatch; to reunite the Mandalorian peoples and to build them back up as a respected civilization of warriors, rather than be seen as criminals, thugs, and mercenaries with no real leadership. Mandalorians who operate independently and participate in criminal activity have one chance to change and help further the mission...or they will be considered enemies and no longer Mandalorian.
Secondary to that, but only by a small margin, Boba seeks to finally put an end to the conflict between the Empire and New Republic and maintain peace in the galaxy (not pacifism like is portrayed in the Clone Wars series. That's different than aiming for peace).
However, we all know that only a handful of years after 30ABY, the Vong invasion begins, which changes everything. This mod does not go into that invasion or depict it in any way but instead focuses on the years prior, in which the previously stated goals are uninhibited by extra-galactic invaders.
So, the short answer is no. However, if you consider the above and realize that Boba is uniting the clans, then in a way Deathwatch is indeed in the mod...but not as an independent faction. Mandalorians fly under one banner now; Boba's.
