That's why we've always kept it a bit vague. The truth is that player characters don't start exactly in lockstep as far as the timeline goes. There are likely origins that start before the ten year cutoff but a decade or so is a good frame of reference.

Maybe "Not so long ago and not so far away"?

Hope that helps!

I'm a little confused.. does this mean all our player characters are no more than 10-12 years old?

Are you referring to the "Most characters weren't adults during the war"? If so, then that would actually mean your characters are no more than 28-30 years old, assuming they have the same standard of adulthood as we do today.

The window for the game start is about 10-12 years after the treaty of Coruscant. Most player characters weren't old enough to be adults during the last war but many of the people you'll interact with were. This is the next generation, watching the Treaty of Coruscant tear at the edges and wondering how long until the seemingly inevitable war to end it all begins.

Hope that helps!

I am confused...

Sacking of Coruscant was a part of great Galactic War date for which is around 3653 BBY. Republic was forced into a treaty in 3653. If window for game is 10-12 years after the treaty shouldn't Coruscant be lieing in ruins? It looks very well rebuilt on screenshots from the game... Please help me understand this.

What I read was that our characters would already be around as juveniles. Say they were born between 10-15 BTC (Before the Treaty of Coruscant)

Its 10 years after the war. They fixed all buildings in Gaza in 6 months so 6 planet controling republic can fix their capital in 10 years I guess

Ah ok, so basically some of the Classes might start before 10 Years after the Treaty was signed, while some will start after the 10 years. So for example, the Trooper & Smugglers would start at a date different then that of the Bounty Hunters/Imperial Agents? <Using those simply as an example and not trying to get any information as to when those Classes start.


Very interesting.
