Question about side mission and threat level

Recommended Posts


I am playing a campaign and the side mission in effect is Strike Force Xesh, from the Alliance Rangers Pack.

The side mission is following Aftermath so the threat level should be 2.

However the Special Setup of the Deployment and Setup rules of the mission state the following: a) Increase threat by twice the threat level and resolve an optional deployment and b) Heroes cannot bring Elite Alliance Rangers as allies.

Also, at the end of Round 1, the mission instructs: Heroes deploy the Elite Alliance Rangers to the entrance and control them as allies.

My questions are:

1. When does the Special Setup double threat (4 instead of 2) trigger? At the beginning of the mission and prior to the start of Round 1 or normally at the status phase?

2. At the end of ROund 1 when Heroes deploy Elite A.R. with a cost of 12, does the Imperial Player also gains threat equal to 12 since the E.A.R. are brought as allies? And if yes, should the threat be 16 (12+4)?

Also isn't there a conflict between Heroes not being able to bring E.A.R. as allies before Round 1 and being able to deploy them at the end of ROund 1?

Thank you for your time and any answers.

1. During Setup. See Mission Setup, RRG page 18.
2. (reserved) groups deployed by mission rules do not cost threat.
 No, as the Elite Alliance Rangers are not brought into the mission by the rebels choosing up to one earned ally during step 7 of Mission Setup. (If they have already earned a different ally, they could choose to bring that ally to the mission normally - giving IP threat and optional deployment.)

One more question regarding the same mission if someone knows.

In the map there is a blue point and a red one, used according to mission rules for imperial deployments.

There is a green point not mentioned at all.

In the same time, for the rebel deployments of the Alliance Rangers, the mission states to deploy them at the entrance. Where exactly is this entrance?

As for the deployment of the reserved groups (Probe droid and Elite Stormies), it simply states the deployment with no mention of red, blue or green point. Is there a mandatory deployment point of  one of these colors or is it ok to deploy them anywhere I see fit?

Thank you.

RRG, page 12. Entrance

Entrance refers to the space containing the entrance token.
Heroes are deployed to the entrance token at the start of a mission
in a campaign.

RRG, page 11, Campaign Deployment

· Deployment location is determined by named tiles or icons,
  such as deployment points, on the map.

· When the location for a figure's deployment is not specified, it
  is deployed as close as possible to any active deployment point
  shown in the mission's diagram, chosen by the Imperial player.
  This includes the space containing the deployment point.
  -- Green deployment points are active at the start of each
. Red, blue, and yellow deployment points are not
     active until specified by the mission's rules, even if another
     rule allows a one-time deployment to any of those points.
