SWS: Republic Rifles

November Star Wars Saturdays will explore the lives of New Republic soldiers as they fight against the remnants of The Empire to liberate the galaxy!

In Republic Rifles , you play as soldiers from the New Republic Expeditionary Force struggling to survive the horrors of trench warfare. Sent to alien worlds, your characters will make personal sacrifices in the name of the New Republic.

We’ll be using a reskin of Ross Rifles for this series.
