Force & Destiny
The planet Adumar was discovered and colonized 10,000 years ago after a small uprising against the Republic was defeated. The rebellion decided they would rather leave the galactic government than remain under its control. They set off into the uncharted Wild Space and came upon a perfectly habitable star system, far enough from explored space to be left unnoticed.
Life on Adumar flourished and soon gave rise to many large nation-states which kept their independence from each other. As generations passed, much knowledge of the Republic and the larger galaxy was forgotten. Occasional scout ships would venture out for information. Only some would return. None knew if those scouts met an unfortunate end, or just wished to remain away from Adumar.
Modern Adumar is prosperous. The war-like citizens place much importance on combat, both in ships and on the ground. Pilots are the planet's biggest celebrities with blastsword masters close behind. Some nation-states revel in violence and death more than others, while many are content with non-lethal displays of prowess.
