Ultimate victory lies within the grasp of the dreaded Galactic Emperor Palpatine as the tattered remnants of the Rebel fleet desperately seek sanctuary and time to muster new allies.

A grim Luke Skywalker, reeling from Darth Vader's revelation on the cloud city of Bespin ponders his own destiny and that of the Rebel Alliance. Meanwhile, the search ensues for Han Solo, captive of the notorious bounty hunter, Boba Fett.

To deal a final blow to the Rebellion, Palpatine has hatched a new plan of which even Lord Vader is unaware. To aid him, the Emperor had enlisted the services of the vast criminal underworld that lurks within the Shadows of the Empire…


Overview
This mod is a retelling of the Star Wars Expanded Universe story, Shadows of the Empire (also referred to as "SOTE"). This chain of events takes place between The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. The Shadows of the Empire story was originally told in 3 media forms: the novel, the comic books, and the video game. Each version was originally very different. This mod is combining all three accounts into one storyline.

Features
The Shadows of the Empire mod will feature all of the original levels from the SotE game (made for Nintendo 64, and later ported to PC). In addition, we plan to integrate elements from the comics and novel by adding more levels which tie together the three originally very different storylines. This makes for one sizable mod. At this time, we plan to have thirteen playable levels. Players will control Dash Rendar as he helps the Rebels track down the captured Han Solo, and guide Luke Skywalker on his path to Jedi Knighthood. Can you prove you have what it takes and save the Rebels from the Shadows of the Empire?

Applications
While Team Jedispy is currently well staffed with talented personnel, we are always happy to accept applications from interested persons. The greatest need we have right now is level design/mapping, and modeling (characters, vehicles, weapons, and props). Any people interested in applying may post applications on our forum.

This would have been a blast, I'm sure. I'm really sad now.

As a matter of fact we're getting back together and starting up again. I will not be making any outlandish promises at this point in time, but we're excited to be putting breath into this project once again
