SWS HyperspaceD6 01

The New Republic's forces are closing in on Imperial Warlord Zsinj. Zsinj's Empire is falling apart day by day, but the despot is determined to hold on for as long as he can... and punish those who pry his grasp loose from this piece of the galaxy! And who are you caught in this maelstrom? You're a team of New Republic troubleshooters with cover identities sent on missions deep in enemy territory to try and dismantle Warlord Zsinj's Empire bit by bit. What motivates you to such dangerous adventure? What has Zsinj's Imperial forces done that cries out for vengeance by you and your allies? Let's play and find out.
