In a Galaxy far, far away

Lulled into a FALSE Sense of Security
Mission Title: Hostile Takeover

Having just failed to retrieve the datapad from Bossk, the heroes received word that all of Bespin was now in danger. Lando was missing (not just recovering from the beating he took in the Introduction), presumably kidnapped by the nefarious and mysterious Agent Blaise.

Firetruck Blaise

This isn’t an actual picture of Agent Blaise… just a picture of a fire engine called Blaze.

With the help of some ugnaughts, the heroes were able to find out where Lando was being held captive… and that he was awaiting CARBONITE FREEZING! (Oh noes!) The ugnaughts also helped the heroes sneak into the facility via a ventilation shaft, catching the Imperials completely unprepared!

With the element of surprise, the heroes were able to keep the imperial forces on the back foot as they blasted their way to free Lando. (Some imperial forgetfulness or incompetency might also be at fault here.) With Lando freed, they then had to face down a diminished Bossk (who they dealt with in fairly short order) before finding a cornered Agent Blaise and manhandling him into the carbonite freezing hole. Mwa-ha-ha-ha-ha!

With Agent Blaise and Bossk now defeated, all of the rebels on Bespin immediately forgot how the heroes had screwed everything else up and decided that they were the best. Hooray! Lando, however, quickly sent the heroes back to rebel HQ before they could “help” in any further missions.

Argh, Bossk!
Mission Title: Freedom Fighters

After their last mission went so poorly the heroes were feeling pretty down. Murne Rin even discovered that he’d become so infamous that there was a bounty (a Death Mark) on his head. (It probably wasn’t placed by the rebellion.) Then, to cheer them up, they heard a rumour that the trandoshan bounty hunters that they had seen hanging around Bespin were kidnapping civilians to sell as slaves somewhere.

Oh noes!

With no time to lose the heroes went looking to free these captive civilians and kick some trandoshan arse… not necessarily in that order.

Finding the captives was easy enough and the heroes were even able to get the trandoshans and their ugnaught accomplices on the back foot to begin with. When the heroes found and released Lobot he even agreed to help them by controlling parts of the city (namely, adding new doors) for them. Cool!

Then Bossk showed up again and began ruining everyone’s day. He even managed to flaunt the fact the he’d somehow managed to acquire a rebel data pad. The bastard!

In the firefight that followed the heroes were swiftly defeated and forced to flee, allowing Bossk to escape with the datapad. After yet another defeat, things were not looking good for the rebel heroes…

Trandoshans!
Mission Title: Panic in the Streets

After the last mission went… not well… the heroes were tasked with delivering some stolen supplies a group of refugees. This part of the mission went off without a hitch. Huzzah!

Following their delivery, however, the heroes encountered a group of trandoshan hunters pushing around some civilians while the local wing guards (a bunch of Chads) did nothing. All of a sudden things escalated quickly and fight broke out right in the middle of a crowded corridor.

The heroes then set about subtly taking down the imperials, wing guards and trandoshans without alarming the civilians too much, while also trying to herd the civilians into a room where they could be safely locked away from people with blasters. Despite Jyn getting a few rocks (?!?) thrown at her, this was working out pretty well. However there seemed to be no end to the number of imperials units and trandoshan hunters than wold just wandering into the area.

Then, just when things were starting to look REALLY hard for the rebels Bossk showed up and helped to make things almost impossible. Amidst a hail of blaster fire the heroes were eventually forced to flee and everyone was left thinking tht the rebels were the cause of all that ruckus (rather than the trandoshans).

Helping Out Lando
Mission Title: Reclamation

A new mini-campaign to have a go at stuff we haven’t done yet…

The heroes were to help Lando Calrissian destroy a whole bunch of security cameras so that they could escape unnoticed. This would have worked better if Agent Blaise hadn’t shown up to make life extra difficult for the rebels.

Eventually, overwhelming imperial forces won the day, forcing the rebels to retreat (and forcing a wounded Lando to lick his wounds).

The game ended when Davith Elso was finally wounded in the seventh turn. Prior to this, all other characters had actually been forced to withdraw. It should be noted that Davith could not actually reach his final objective (in that, the final turn). It should also be noted that he kept evading blaster shots like a god-damn space ninja!

BOMBS AWAY!
Mission Title: Incoming

This week the heroes were tasked with picking up the research notes made on the Secret Schematics that had been recovered some time ago. When they arrived at the secret rebel research facility, however, they found it already overrun with imperial stormtroopers. Drat.

Hoping to find at least some research to salvage the mission, the heroes proceeded with caution.

IA_SM4_Initial_Setup.jpg

With only a little effort the heroes were able to fight their way into the ruined base. As imperial bombardments began (some distance away for starters), the Mak, Diala and Fenn started invesitigating the remaining consoles, looking for data, while Gideon helped direct everyone and keep them on task. (He also tried helping Fenn with his console… but his technique seemed somewhat unique.)

With an intercepted transmission alerting the heroes to the possible arrival of Darth Vader, they stepped up their investigations (while the imperials also started stepping up their forces and their bombardments).

Unfortunately the data had all been recovered by the empire, so all that remained was for the heroes to make their escape through a jammed blast door. As the imperial forces encircled them they managed to activate the door and make good their escape. (Even though everyone, barring the Royal Guards, was stunned.)

Get to the Shuttle!
Mission Title: Infiltrated

The heroes (Biv Bodhrik, Gaarkhan, Jyn Ordan and Saska Teft) had one last chance to intercept the rebel plans from falling into Imperial hands… and that chance was aboard a Imperial starship that they also had to board to provide Luke Skywalker with a chance to escape from…SOMEWHERE!!!

With C-3PO along for support the heroes snuck on to the Imperial starship and set about stealthily doing STUFF… until they were noticed and the shooting started!

TS_M4_1.jpg

With care and planning the heroes were able to steadily move through the ship, gunning down Stormtroopers and disabling vital systems as they went. Their progress even attracted the attention of the feared Kayn Somos, but they could not be stopped this time… not even by a Stormtrooper with a name!

Finally they broke through the blast doors and reached the hanger to make their escape. Saska released the shuttle while Biv, Gaarkhan and the wounded Jyn (C-3PO had been blown apart long ago) all tried to keep the Imperials back long enough for them to make their escape. Unfortunately for the heroes there were just too many enemies for them to account for and they were eventually captured and taunted by Kayn Somos himself. He must have recovered from being hit by a big wookie.

As this mission was the FINALE for the Mini-Campaign, that brings us to the end of the adventures of these heroes. At least until next time!

A Daylight Charge up the Canyon!
Mission Title: Canyon Run

Biv Bodhrik, Gaarkhan, Jyn Ordan, Saska Teft, Han Solo, R2-D2 and C-3PO all headed off to the Jundland Wastes to steal some plans. Or something like that. Their plan involved charging up a canyon in the middle of the day in a desert and could very well have worked!

Things started well, with Biv being able to charge forward and cause enough damage to take out a heavy Strmtrooper straight off the bat.

TS_M3_1.jpg

However their path was blocked not only by Imperial forces who seemed determined not to fall down, but also barricades, traps and pesky tuskan raiders who delighted in taking pot shots at them from the top of the canyon (they would have delighted in this more if they had hit more often). C-3PO’s shiny golden head was a particularly popular target for the raiders, however the glare must have made it difficult for them to hit him.

Initially the heroes tried to fight their way up the canyon inch by inch, but they soon realised that the slow method was not going to work and so they started charging uphill in a desperate attempt to reach the computer terminal before “reinforcements arrived”.

As they finally closed in on the Imperial outpost terminal, Kayn Somos appeared to once more make life even more difficult for them.

With blaster fire going off all around them, Taska and Jyn led the final charge inside the Imperial outpost, where Jyn was able to almost win the day. Then, under the unbearable double suns of Tattoine and the mocking laughter of Kayn Somos, the rebels were forced to retreat.

TS_M3_2.jpg


Jyn’s failure to interact with the terminal at the end of this mission (once again, it all came down to a dice roll in the final round) was particularly spectacular considering that she was focused at the time and had the means of re-rolling all of her skill dice (4 in this case). All she needed was one success, but on 8 dice she could not manage it.

The re-roll results have been recorded for posterity below.

Well... that was brief.
Mission Title: Old Friends

Gideon led the team to the aid of his old squad, which was in danger of being wiped out by Imperial forces. Under heavy fire the group managed to land and make their way to the rendezvous location… only to find that the rebels had been forced to go into hiding!

IA_SiM4_1.jpg

Gideon soon began directing the team and it didn’t take long for Fenn to engage the enemy and for Mak to begin helping one of the hidden rebels to the evacuation point. With most of the Stormtroopers in the immediate area blown away, things were looking good and so Diala went looking for (and found) another hidden rebel.

Then things turned nasty as a fresh squad of Stormtroopers came bursting out of nowhere and blasted one of the fleeing rebels down before anyone could react.

Worried now, Gideon began directing people again and moved to block off the possible attack of the trained Nexu that had just arrived… only to watch in horror as the second escaping rebel was also brutally gunned down by the same squad of Stormtroopers.

The survivors (and the uninjured heroes) managed to retreat to the evacuation point, but the Imperials had easily won the day.

C-3PO is where?
Mission Titile: Past Life Enemies

Having helped Han escape from Imperial attention, the heroes retreated to the smuggler’s small refuge where they found R2-D2 beeping furiously. Since none of the heroes spoke beep they then had to wait for the droid to play a hologram to explain why it was so upset. What they then saw was footage of C-3PO being gunned down by Stormtroopers near an Imperial garrison in Mos Eisley.

Pausing only to call in Han Solo for assistance, the heroes rushed off to the golden droid’s rescue. Arriving at the scene of the attack they found Heavy Stormtroopers standing near the downed body of C-3PO. Then, before they could properly take in all of the situation, Biv Bodhrik charged forward to the droid’s defence!

TS_M2_1.jpg

With little other options, Gaarkhan, Han Solo, Jyn Ordan and Saska Teft were left to also charge in against the overwhelming Imperial forces and try to save the day.

Buoyed by the previous success, the heroes hoped to quickly turn the tide. However after Han and Biv both fell to heavy and repeated blaster fire things were starting to look grim. With a concerted effort, Jyn was finally able to make it over to C-3PO and reactivate him, only to discover that a Stormtrooper Commander was present at the garrison and should be dealt with.

Bravely the heroes continued trying to fight their way forward against the seemingly never ending waves of opponents, until finally a severely wounded Gaarkhan was able to break down one of the facility doors to reveal the waiting Kayn Somos!

Finally, amidst a veritable barrage of blaster fire, the heroes were forced to withdraw.

Let's go rob the Empire!
Mission Title: Generous Donations

Rebellion Command approached the heroes with two prospective missions: protect Luke Skywalker on some boring mission or go pilfer credits from an Imperial sympathiser’s bank account. Of course they chose the cash.

The heroes travelled to a planet and met up with a criminal contact who provided them with a computer virus, which would allow the imperial sympathiser’s account to be emptied. While not trusting the low-life they were working with, the heroes were nonetheless in no position to refuse the aid.

Off they then set to break into a facility, upload a virus and hopefully not get hurt too much. Unfortunately, they hadn’t counted on the imperial facility being guarded by a squad of trandoshan mercenaries with their trained nexu (not to mention the usual probe droids, e-web blasters, etc.).

IA_SiM3_1.jpg

While Diala took an immediate dislike to nexu, the heroes were able to easily deal with the initial waves of defence. And so although Fenn took a considerable amount of damage, they were able to break their way into the imperial facility… only for Mak to discover that there were more troops inside! While Fenn bravely deflected the imperial attacks with his body, head and sanity, Mak was able to upload the virus. Which set off an alarm. And closed all the doors. And made more imperials appear outside.

IA_SiM3_2.jpg

Gideon then organised everyone to hold off the menacing imperials long enough for the bank account to be fully drained. Fenn was so badly wounded that he needed to withdraw, but the remaining heroes were sufficient to the task of winning the day.

IA_SiM3_3.jpg

Of course, afterwards they all discovered that their underworld contact had made off with most of the money (rather than splitting it as promised)… leaving them with only a small fortune, rather than the huge fortune they were hoping for.


Post Script: Later, the heroes also learned that Luke Skywalker encountered some difficulties with Darth Vader on his boring mission… and now the sith lord will possibly be paying closer attention to what the rebels are up to.
