Always enjoyed Star Wars, yet, never "loved" it enough to buy much merchandise. When I discovered Imperial Assault it reminded me of a beloved videogame franchise- XCOM, how could I say no or resist? I started picking up all the boxes and individual units I could find beginning in 2016 as they came, due in large part to my need to "finish" a collection. (Strangely I don't actually collect much of anything aside from dlc in videogames; I suppose I like a complete experience)
My roomate at the time and I used to play skirmish with each other on boring weekends and our love for the game grew with each expansion. Sadly I didn't have too many friends who actually played boardgames back in 2016, so it was more of a setup for future fun. A enjoyed what lore there was, but, was dissapointed in the "open-experience" that left each individual hero with no pertinent backstories to speak of. After reading a post by @Stompburger who had crafted a nice protype for my future stories, I decided to put my amateur writing skills to work and craft some interesting tales that I (and hopefully others) would like to read from each heroes perspective.
As the app came along my old roomate and I had more excuses to play the game and only grew more interested in the coming expansions. Fast forward to late 2018 and I am now slowly beginning to play the campaign for the first time with a group of gaming friends (old roomate included) and we are having a great time.
I am still waiting on new expansions and just as bored as you guys are on those nasty months in between releases, but, am happy to have met many of you guys and to share a passion with you all for gaming.
Now a day's I'm usually found haunting the forums; waiting for something interesting to happen while im at work during the weekdays.
