My custom campaign: Rise of a Rebellion

Recommended Posts

So I've been working on and writing up a narrative campaign inspired by HotAC from X-wing. I will be a GM playing as Imperials while my players will be a small band of Rebels(can choose a starting point as a group). I have a game planned for tonight to start. Hopefully the story will be fun to play out and write up as it progresses. Each player will choose a single small base ship (CR90, Hammerhead or Nebulon-b) with 5 points for non-unique upgrades and a choice squadrons up to the ships squadron value (Y-wings, A-wings, Z-95s, VCX-100s, YT-1300s, and YT-2400) or GR-75 instead. All ships will have cargo space to carry any pickups. Some squadrons will be able to as well such as the VCX-100s and YTs.

Keyword(s): Cargo X (amount of cargo space available for a ship/squadron)

VCX-100 and YTs have Cargo 1

CR90s, Hammerheads, and Nebulon-b have Cargo 2

GR-75s have Cargo 6

 

The Clone Wars has ended and the Republic has reform, becoming the first Galatic Empire. As the years have gone by, the Empire has ruled through fear, oppression and tyranny. They stripped resources from planets to fuel it's military, taking people into slavery and arrested people for disobedience. Over time people began to rise up against this evil forming rebel cells to fight the Empire. These cells did what they could by stealing ships, supplies and making new alliances to help fight. This is a story of a new small but growing cell had formed a few years before the battle of Yavin...

New name of campaign in title, dropped GR-75 as a starting ship. Squadrons or GR-75 to start with your ship.

Mission #1: Disarrayed

My players start of with their base (which after using a galaxy map, they choose Mon Cala) attack by Imperials. Everyone is scattered about trying to make a run for it, but there is a blockade to get past first... Once they get past it there will be a few options on where to go as Imperials are in persuit. Lose them and get to a jump point for hyperspace. Someone will be there there to help...

Ships-

Imperials: 

VSD 2-Commandant Aresko, QBTs, GT, LS

2 light cruiers- DTTs

2 gozantis- Comms net and jamming feild

Squadrons- 5 Tie fighter, 2 Tie Interceptors

Rebels:

Player 1- CR90 A- RBD and A-wing squadron

Player 2- Nebulon-b Escort- QBTs and 2 A-wings

Setup was like the blockade run objective just no tokens involved. Imperials had a line with the VSD in the middle, Gozantis on the left and right then a light cruier on each flank. Imperials launched squadrons as they got closer. Players had deployed apart near the edges of the mat. Player 1 being on the left side of VSD and player 2 on the right with all three A-wing squadrons. They slowly approached as Imperials speed towards them few shots were fired, but both players took heavy damage losing an A-wing squadron as well. Player 1 managed to get around the left side and got away while player 2 had been taking damage from the VSD. The VSD started to close in the Sato jumped in and disabled the side arc weapons allowing player 2 to get away. Both player got through the blockade, but we're still being presude and had a choice to go through a nebula or asteroid field. They choose the asteroid field which the rocks and debris fields moved distance by random dice roll at the start of each round. Sato gave a free shield at the start of each round and stayed back taking fire from the VSD and a light cruier that manager to follow. Players found some crates floating in the debris fields before jumping to hyperspace with Sato and meeting Pheonix cell. Now after repairs to their ships, they are in desperate need of supplies...

Next mission will be a supply run with three locations to choose from:

#1- An old abandoned republic station

#2- Imperial Convoy

#3- Mining Guild Convoy

So for anyone interested in any updates. I did some changes to my story which I can post later and changed the name to "The rise of a Rebellion" and will use the CC map for now. I think I'm ready for some testing, but my wife and one other group member seem to be the only ones interested. Anyone in or near Lacey/Olympia WA want to try it out?

@EagleScoutof007.  I really like the idea of your campaign.  Part of the reason I started getting into this game was because I thought it would be cool to integrate some sort of narrative into it.  I am new to the game and still learning, I have just played a few games with my wife when I can convince her to play.  Coincidently I live in Lacey/Olympia area and have been looking for people to play with.  Please let me know if you are interested in linking up sometime to play!
