Chris “Chiu-y” Chiu, Larry “Last Ho-pe” Ho, Ikai Lan “Solo”, “The Commanda” Samantha Lee and I started the Imperial Assault campaign. Here’s a battle report and quick review.
Chris as Gaarkhan
Larry as Fenn Signis
Ikai as Mak Eshka’rey
Samantha as Gideon Argus
Kingston as the Imperials
The campaign starts with some flavor text setting the theme of the campaign. It’s after the events of Star Wars Episode IV A New Hope. The Rebels have just destroyed the Death Star and the Imperials seek revenge against them. An Imperial beacon begins a broadcast on an Imperial outpost near the Rebel base on Yavin 4. An elite Rebel team is dispatched to silence the signal.
The first mission starts with guns blazing. The Rebels deploy directly in front of a group of Stormtroopers, an Imperial officer and a probe droid. Their mission is to break in to the Imperial outpost and destroy all of the broadcast terminals.
The Rebels were successful in stopping all broadcasts from the Imperial outpost causing the Imperial forces to fall into a hasty retreat.
This first mission was great. The players started and ended knowing that they needed to work together to complete the mission. I am not a good Game Master so having the flavor texts and triggers spelled out for me was very useful. The game felt balanced, I was 1 turn away from winning for the Imperials.
