Well. I'll start off with the bits and peices we have about the Romulan Republic.
Romulus and Remus are gone. You are one of the survivors, struggling to survive in the aftermath of unspeakable destruction.
These are dark and dangerous times for your people, as the Tal Shiar crack down on any dissent and mysterious beings unleash terror throughout the far-flung colony worlds.
You will be the one to reshape an empire. Gather allies, go undercover and find the proof that will rally your people to revolt.
Together, you will rise up against an oppressive regime and demand freedom. You will fight for your people.
You are the Legacy of Romulus.
Return of Empress Sela
Denise Crosby returns to reprise her role as Empress Sela. Play a game of political cat-and-mouse as you delve deeper into the intrigue surrounding the destruction of Romulus.
The Silent Enemy
Uncover the horrifying truth behind a mysterious new enemy that seeks to terrorize the Beta Quadrant and exterminate your people.
It's not entirely clear if you'll be working for Sela. I'm guessing yes, but it's too early to be sure. My guess is based on the idea that Sela hates the Tal'Shiar.
Anyways, it's clear that the remains of the Romulan Star Empire have largely been split 3 ways.
1: a peice loyal to the Tal'Shiar.
2: The Romulan Republic playable faction. We don't know exactly how this is going to work, but to be an actual faction there must be political and financial backers. Thus a pretty good sized chunk of the old Empire must be involved.
3: D'Tan's(and Obisek's) group. Why do I think they're seperate from #2? Well, the reputation system would be skewed if RR players didn't have access to the reputation branch run by D'Tan's group. Why do they have tech that the old RSE didn't? Well, they currently control the Vault. This USED to be the RSE's premier R&D facility. Presumably, Obisek scavenged the tech from the Vault. Thus as the RR doesn't have the tech and RR players need to be nice to D'Tan and Obisek to get it.
My best GUESS, is that Sela's return resulted in her reorganizing the political structure to weed out elements loyal to the Tal Shiar.
MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.
Show Archon and Borticus how much you would like to see new Doff races!
