Episode IX

The Rise and fall of freedom

It was some years after the creation of the first Galactic Empire. With the senate dissolved, all remaining elements of the Old Republic has faded. Now that the Empire has full control of the Military, Emperor Palpatine has initated the grand buildup of forces to enact full control of known systems.

Only a few people are left, in open Rebellion. Trying hard to gain support and gather allies at every corner of the galaxy. Facing impossible odds, these people have still eluded the mighty Empire.

The Imperial Navy has just been expanded with a Death Star and a Super Star Destroyer. At the peek of its Military power, the Empire sends his most trusted servant Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith, to find the hidden Rebel base and crush this Rebellion before more support will bring this galaxy in open war.



The Emperor just returned to Coruscant with his most trusted servant, Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith. As the two most powerfull characters in the entire galaxy entered the throne room in the Imperial Palace, Grand Moff Tarkin arrives as well.

Tarkin: "My Lord, I heard you have approved my plan to use the Death Star as a final deterrent for those who oppose freedom and security that the Galactic Empire provides. I am here to inform you personally that we have tripled our efforts and our new command ship the Executor is ready to be deployed, well ahead of schedule.
General Tagge have been most usefull in taking command of the workforce that made this possible. The only setback is that our primary source for workers, Kashyyyk, is no longer available since their open Rebellion."

Palpatine: "Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen. Lord Vader, use your resources to locate the Rebel operatives. Grand Moff Tarkin, make sure those systems will rejoin the Empire."

1 Tie Fighter
1 Stormtrooper

Note:
Well... hi all.
My name is Aron, im from the Netherlands. Will try to make a daily visit to post (most of the times more then once). But since I am asked to do more then just say what action I take, it will take some time. Besides this fantastic game I also work and have a family to look after (wife and two kids), just so you know.
Thanks for hosting this game and give me some extra power, I love Super Star Destroyers
Looking forward to a great game Menghini, good luck and may the force be with you

Welcome, friends! You may now remove your blindfolds!

First of all, I want to apologise for blindfolding you, but this base has to be, and stay, hidden! I'm also sorry for the big journey and exhausting tests we did on you. I just need to be sure we are all working towards the same goal.

I called you 4 here, because we are not only facing a Death Star, but the last intelligence also indicated the Empire has a Super Star Destroyer deployed and working. Since the Senate is dissolved, I think now is the time to combine our cells and strength and put up some resistance!

Mon Mothma, you are here because of your connections within the former Senate and the knowledge of most of the systems in our known galaxy.

Princess Leia, you too have the knowledge of the systems as well as being someone who can lead our troops and infiltrate the Empire. I heard that you already know Mon Mothma...

Admiral Dodonna, you are here especially to lead our space operation, you have a lot of experience from the past as a strategist in space battles and I heard you are also well known to get some intelligence here and there.

General Rieekan, we have you here to lead our ground operation. You are also well experienced in evacuations and we might need to do that. Your strategic insight on the ground has saved your cell many times and that's why I called you here.

And now it's on to business! We have a reasonable force to deploy, but I just got some more intelligence on where the Empire has its troops. Mind you, I'm just setting up this base and the system isn't entirely online yet. I will put up the things we know, so we finally can put up a fist against the suppression of the Empire! Once I know you and your cells are committed to our common goal, I will reveal the system we are in...


I'll make an overview for myself, I hope to post my deployment soon.

Also a bit about myself:
I am Dennis and I also live in The Netherlands. I don't know if Mike chose us just because we are both Dutch, but it might speed the game up, since we are in the same timezone. So, be prepared for the Dutch Spectacle (or not... )!

I will try to play my role as good as I can (and if the readers have some pointers about rolelaying, then please PM me).

I really like to play this game, so I will usually check BGG a couple of times a day, of course if my work and other obligations let me do that. The 'other' obligations are my wife and our son who is at this moment clearing the kitchen cupboards and spreading it all through the house.

Mike, thanks for hosting this 'variant' of the game. And Aron, I'm looking forward to playing with you. I will not underestimate the Dark Side. Good luck, Aron!

Is everybody acquainted? I'm ready to start! M3NGH1N1 will you project the maps please?

Our troops are vastly outnumbered, what do we do? Deploy at the base, or somewhere else?

Mon Mothma: I think talking is the best way at this moment, I can...

Leia interrupts: Talking, talking! That's the Senate way! Right now, I'm done with talking!

Dodonna and Rieekan retreat a bit from the conversation and start mumbling tactics...

...

I think I know what to do, let's do a bit of both. Are we all up to the task? It might fail and backfire, but I think it's worth it!


Rebel deployment:
- 1 Corvette, 1 X-Wing, 3 troopers and 1 airspeeder on Ord Mantell
- 2 Y-Wings, 1 X-Wing, 1 transport, 3 troopers and 1 airspeeder on the Rebel Base


Mon Mothma: you just mentioned the Rebel Base... Where are we exactly? And... I didn't catch your name...!

Ah yes. Well, my name is Berloc. You might know me from my 'work' as Y-Wing squadron leader at the Aturi Cluster... And now for our location, we are at ...


(Base PM'd to Mike)

Rieekan: hey, this read-out, is it right? I thought one of my airspeeder squadrons should be here at our base and not on Ord Mantell?

Dodonna: don't worry, friend! I think it's just a glitch in the computer programming. M3 will probably fix it! Because I can clearly hear the buzz of our airspeeders outside...


If I can access the spreadsheet, I will start my assignments!

Admiral Mothma! Right now we got some intelligence and I want you to go, since you are more of the talking anyway. Some rebel Utai sympathisers contacted us: they have some new technology for us. You know how to speak Utai, right?

Mon Mothma uses her action card and forges a Temporary Alliance with Utapau: a MonCal Cruiser and a Corvette are on space 3 of the build queue

Leia: hey, where is Mon Mothma, Berloc? ... She does her 'talking', general!

Admiral Dodonna: you are standing by. Be prepared at all times! And for you, my two Generals, I have some nice missions to prove yourself!


- Leia on mission A
- Rieekan on mission C
- Dodonna in the pool


Next: Imperial assignments!

An unkown droid entered the Imperial Palace on Coruscant. It looks like a protocol droid, all black and big sensors on its head. It is escorted by a full squad of Imperial Stormtroopers. Once inside the droid is escorted to Grand Moff Tarkin. With a troubled face he hears what the droid has to say. After a moment Tarkin is granted another audience at the Throne Room. Immediately the Emperor makes holocontact with Lord Vader.

Emperor Palpatine: Lord Vader, it appears the Rebellion is as bold as General Tagge stated earlier. Not only have more systems, Bothawui and Ryloth, rallied to their pathetic cause. It is also clear they are militarizing their forces. We have indications that Rebel operatives are active and undermining our plans. We also learned that there is a small rebel Contingency at Ord Mantell.
Lord Vader, you are to take down those Rebel operatives and lead our commanders to victory. Make sure that “Initiative 54” will not be compromised!

Imperial assignment:
- Darth Vader on B
- Grand Moff Tarkin in leader pool
- General Tagge in leader pool
- Emperor Palpatine in leader pool

M3 enters the sleeping chamber of Jan Dodonna: I'm sorry, sir, but you are expected at the main hangar!

Good 'morning', Dodonna! I hope you did get some sleep! Last evening we already talked about your mission and now is the time to strike and help the citizens of Mygeeto! The shuttle is ready to bring you to Mygeeto, where the troops will be waiting for you!

May the force be with you!


Dodonna activates Mygeeto, bringing 1 Corvette, 1 X-Wing, 1 trooper and 1 airspeeder from Ord Mantell to Mygeeto

Communications officer: Lord Vader, we just recieved an emergency transmission from Mygeeto. They have detected incoming hostile forces. It is the first open military manouevre my lord. Imperial citizens are in danger.

Lord Vader: Yes, it is as the Emperor has foreseen. Send word to Grand Moff Tarkin, tell him that his operation has succeeded and lured the Rebels out of hiding. Proceed with the plans as the Emperor commanded.

Communication officer: As you wish my Lord. And what about Mygeeto? Can I reply that assistence is coming right away? Casualties could be high.

Lord Vader: Mygeeto will hold out, send word that they destroy those Rebels. Casualties are of no concern to me.


No leader send.

(You can roll for me to speed up the game, as Well as the rpg element on how the defense is feeling )

Dodonna enters the space battle field and makes contact: what is the situation, Dodonna's Pride?

Hi Admiral, welcome back! There seems to be only a squadron of Tie Fighters and a regiment of Stormtroopers on the surface! Nothing else came in, so I think the Imperials here are on their own!

Dodonna: Roger that! Dispatch ground troops and commence engaging the Tie Fighter squadron!

As the Stormtroopers ready up their defences, they saw Some tie fighters entering the atmosphere.

Look, reinforcements!

Carry on trooper, thats the sign we are on our OWN now. Prepare for ground assault!


As the Stormtroopers went on with their tasks, it was clear that it was debris faling down.

Dodonna: Regiment Mygeeto 1! Come in!

Yes, Admiral! We receive you loud and clear!

Dodonna: Right now I'm sending the instructions from your general Rieekan, who had something else to attend to.

Ah yes! We clearly see his autograph in these instructions! However, we do see a little other hand in it...

Dodonna: Don't tell him!

Roger, Admiral! OK, troops! Move out!
