Revenge...

That's what the Republic wanted...

They barley won the Clone Wars but at a heavy cost.

Chancellor Palpatine was assassinated after the Clone rebellion.

After the Clone Wars a Pro Military Chancellor was elected, in his campaign vowing to take back the land that was taken from them by the Imperial Clones.

Crusaders...

That's what the Imperial Clones are...

After the Rebellion they looted and pillaged like their Mandalorian ancestors before them.

Those who did not want to fight where farmers in their territory to feed the growing number of Crusaders.

Rex was elected Emperor, even if he did not want to have it, he led the Empire to prosperity.

The Republic was militarily Powerful but was unstable at its core with corruption and doubtfulness that they can beat the Empire...

Clones are discriminated in the Republic and are treated horribly...

The Empire was militarily powerful as well but had lesser numbers...

Their are regular influxes of Clone deserters coming to the Empire who are tired of the Republic...

Tensions are rising, with the Republic Navy on the Imperial border conflict is likely...

Who will win?
