Briefing "The Empire’s counter attack following its defeat at the Battle of Yavin is swift and brutal. The vast Imperial fleet combs the Galaxy in search of Rebel strongholds. Following the discovery by Imperial Probes of a Rebel base in the wastes of Ryloth in the Outer Rim, the Star Destroyer Vengeance has been dispatched to the planet to deal with the Rebel scum. Following a devastating orbital bombardment by the mighty war cruiser, Imperial forces are dropped to the surface to mop up any survivors. This should prove an easy victory for the Empire."

The planet of Ryloth is the homeworld of the Twi’lek, the tentacle-headed aliens best known for their exotic dancers and major criminal players domos such as Bib Fortuna. Located in the outer rim, this arid world has the interesting quirk of having one side of the planet always facing the sun, and the other forever hidden under the cover of night. This results in a twilight region between this perpetual day and night being the only habitable area on the planet. Yet even in this twilight region, dust storms ravage the landscape and living is no easy task. Such an inhospitable and remote place became an ideal location for a Rebel base. Unfortunately, Imperial Probe Droids discovered the Rebels, and the Imperial Star Destroyer Vengeance entered the system to crush the Rebel forces. After pounding the surface from orbit with its batteries of turbolasers, the Vengeance deployed ground troops to mop up any Rebel survivors. However, due to their hidden underground base, much of the Rebel forces had survived the initial bombardment, and a fierce battle ensued between both factions' forces both on the ground, and in the air.
