PHASE 11 BEGINS
 
Black Sun has lost control of the Braxant Sector, but no clear victor has emerged there and Prince Xizor's ragtag army refuses to go away quietly. [Achievement: Black Sun's Crime Syndicate achievement has awarded it with 1 faction win in the Atrivis and Arkanis Sectors, and the Rebels' Hidden Base.]
 
Bothan Space has been secured by the Empire, and its network of spies has been squeezed for valuable information. [Achievement: Bothan Spies indicate that the Rebels have just 1 net win in the Perlemian Systems, and Black Sun has no wins there.] Imperial victories in the Corporate Sector have brought this region of the galaxy back in line, and rebels in the Auril Sector have been routed. The Imperial high command is confident that it will soon be celebrating the end of the insurgency.
 
In spite of their losses elsewhere, Rebel forces in the Abrion, Brak and Wyl Sectors have united their systems under the protection of the Alliance. [Achievement: With the Brak, Elrood and Kessel Sectors under Rebel control, the Alliance has swayed the Mining Guild to support its cause.]

The highlight of this battle was an Interceptor getting one-shotted the first time dice were thrown. It ended with the Bounty Hunter losing its heavy laser to critical damage and being chased down by a B-Wing and YT-1300.

HoloNet News (HNN) Exclusive:

Skirmishes on the Outer Rim Demonstrate Empire's Resolve to Bring Stability to the Entire Galaxy

 

OSLUMPEX - Having secured the Corporate Sector for the Empire, the fighting forces of the Imperial Navy attempt to return stability to the Wyl Sector. Tragically, terrorist elements and natives are recalcitrant in their objection to civilization.

 

"Some people just don't get it," Maj. Purvis, wing commander aboard the Imperial Star Destroyer Inflexible told HNN reporters. "No matter how much you try to help them out, they just can't see the light of the core from the forgotten corner of the galaxy that they find themselves in. It's tragic that pilots have to die in order to bring it to them."

 

The Wyl Sector is indeed a nearly-forgotten hindquarter of space. With its most salient feature being the Shaltiin Tunnels hyperroute that connects the Oslumpex to Zygerria (both in neighboring sectors), Imperial navigators rightfully call the Wyl Sector 'hype-through country'.

 

"Tragic, yes. Worthless, no!" ISB agent Thernstrom added to Purvis' analysis. "Even if these natives are backward, the Emperor's wisdom is such that the ... nerfs should be forced to drink at the trough, even if they're too dumb to know how to drink."

 

Demonstrating both metaphorical poetry as well as subtle strategic thinking, the ISB lends voice to the Emperor's just cause of uniting the galaxy and stamping out nihilism and lawlessness on the Outer Rim.

P.S. Dave, I'm a bit confused on the maps. The last two maps both say Phase 10. (I do download them and compare - even if I'm not particularly strategic about how I choose which sectors to fight for, not have I tried to understand the rules of the galactic game.)

The map on the front page is accurate, except that I need change "Phase 10" to "Phase 11" and change the dates. I'll fix that today.

Yeah, I've been teaching at the academy, and have had too little time or energy for much rebellion crushing.

But just wait. HNN SHALL BE reporting on a grand epic battle in a few days.

Won't it, Dave?

HoloNet News (HNN) Exclusive:

Deplorable and Condemnable Rebel Tactics EXPOSED!!

Decive Strategic Defeat for the Rebellion along the Perlemian Trade Route!

 

LANTILLIES - The Rebellion is exposed for what it is, a traitorous terrorist organization with no regard for human life or civilized decency. (Of course, informed consumers of HNN reports were already aware of this.)

 

During a regular customs enforcement exercise, assisting local civilian authorities, a transport accompanied by a rebel privateer is found carrying illegal weapons and computer slicing equipment is destroyed by Imperial Forces. During its attempted escape, the transport was destroyed. The cargo was later found to contain both illegal slicing equipment as well as children's toys (of the integrated brick system variety) laced with biological contaminants, bound for the Imperial core - doubtlessly intended to be put into the hands of human children on civilized systems from Coruscant to Corellia.

 

"Some days you just can't believe it anymore," Maj. Purvis, wing commander aboard the Imperial Star Destroyer Inflexible told embedded HNN reporters. "One moment they're trying to undermine law and order in space, and the next they're going after defenseless children. I'm so proud to be serving the Empire in this fight, but sometimes you just can't fathom how ... just plain evil the rebellion is. It's clear that while many of those deluded souls fighting for the Empire are other humans, their tactics are inhuman and clearly of alien origin."

 

"I mean, what human would do such a thing?"

 

"Aliens indeed," ISB Special Agent Thornstrom added. "These creatures do not have any sense of decency the way that humans do. Human decency is the product of civilization and the desire for a peaceful and stable galaxy. Aliens see things differently. For them it's all about their species trying to take the wealth and good paying jobs from our human population. They're not content with their expansive territories on the Outer Rim. Now they're coming for what we've built, and if they have to kill humans children, they figure all the better."

 

"You should have seen the alien contaminants aboard those juvenile recreational aids."

 

"Toys?" HNN asked.

 

"Yes, toys," Agent Thernstrom clarified. "They were laced with probably deadly alien microbes. From the Alien's perspective, the only good human children are dead or contaminated and infectious human children. That's just how those Outer Rim bugs think."

 

Regrettably the privateering vessel was able to depart the sector before Imperial forces were able to apprehend it. However, the clear fact of this matter - as first brought to you by embedded HNN reporters - has local authorities aghast and willing to provide the Empire with more volunteers and recruits for the military forces of the Empire.

 

"Send them to the Naval Academy of Prefsbelt," Maj. Purvis suggested the authorities send their eager young men looking to defend their homes, lives and children from this barbarism. "That's the quickest way to get out here in the front line. In fact, pilots from our academy even participated in this exposure of depraved enemy tactics. If you want to put a halt to these potential atrocities, join the Imperial Navy as a TIE Pilot!"

I'm glad you had a good time. It was totally worth the ... 7? hours we spent fighting those 300 points without a break or even dinner. (Good thing there were pretzels, chips and salsa.)

 

It'll be even more epic once we get an Imperial huge (or two). That way it might not take quite as long as this did.

 

Still, why did take so long? I felt we went pretty quickly with everything.

I gather that most Epic games take several hours, but that felt like a marathon. I think the long play time was the perfect storm of my bad flying and two-waves attack plan that turned out to be more like a trickle, the dense asteroid field, ions, and a general difficulty to find opportunities to concentrate fire. One ship would get destroyed here or there, but we didn't have any rounds where a lot of stuff just got wiped out.

Casual game. My Rebel list was designed to try out some abilities that I never use -- Anti-Pursuit Lasers and ion weapons. It didn't work out that well, but it wasn't meant to. The APLs only came into play once, and didn't do any damage. The ion turrets were a little more effective, paralyzing the Interceptor and making it easy to kill. The Phantom went down late in the game, leaving one damaged Outer Rim Smuggler chasing the Bounty Hunter with no real hope of success.

THE EMPIRE IS VICTORIOUS!
 
An age of strife comes to an explosive end. Desperate Rebel forces managed to destroy the mighty Death Star, only to be traced back to their hidden base on Hoth, where they were crushed. Scattered and defeated, and being turned in to Imperial authorities by sympathizers across the galaxy, the Rebel Alliance is no more. The last remnants of the Old Republic and the Jedi Order have been vanquished. As for Black Sun, the Empire has already dismantled their criminal rings on hundreds of systems, and it is a matter of time before their kind slinks back into the underworld where they belong. We now look forward to a glorious age of peace and prosperity under the rule of the Emperor. All Hail Palpatine!
 
[Season 1 of the Unofficial X-Wing Galactic Campaign is complete! Thanks to everyone who participated, and good luck to you in the next campaign, which will be starting again soon.]
