Welcome to...

... the thirteeenth installment of the Star Wars: Rebellion PBF franchise.

This will be a 2-player game pitting the wits of:
The Algebraist
Canada
Fredericton
New Brunswick

Against the acumen of

.
Players next on the waiting list will be called if any (or both) don't answer by 48 hs. or decline the invitation. Sides are for you to agree.

Some rules and guidelines:

* As usual, post orders in bold, and fiction in italics. If there's both, I'll take the bolded words as orders too. I allow take-backs and edits as long as the other player hasn't acted based on your move, and of course, before dice are rolled or new cards are seen.

* Please do dice rolls as separated posts; in order to keep them clear. No editing is allowed on dice roll posts.

Die codes for reference (feel free to test them before the actual game starts):
Black - 1custom6{iid:3020356;iid:3020356;iid:3020357;iid:3020358;iid:3020358;iid:3020359}
Red - 1custom6{iid:3020360;iid:3020360;iid:3020361;iid:3020362;iid:3020362;iid:3020363}

Thanks to Kezerk for uploading the images.

* We will be using Steve's Google spreadsheets (thanks Steve!).
The missions and other cards will be coded with both letters and, to spice things up, names of beasts in the SW canon. I think it's cooler to say "I assign Leia to Mission 'Sarlacc'" than just "Mission D"; but you can use either way.

* Also, we'll use Arno's card script for combat; which he has generously agreed to help setting up.

* But for mapping, we will be using my own creation: an SVG map hosted on my dropbox public folder that I will update as soon as I see a new move. The file will always be up to date (as long as I am up to date, of course), and the SVG format allows for non-pixelated zooming whenever something is unclear.
I'll also upload a fixed map after each deployment so readers catching up on the game can follow.

Thanks to Davestar2 for uploading the file I used as base.

As you see, the units are shown above and below (some are way more detailed than others; I got lazy in the end ); the names and icons in sectors are as unobtrusive as I could make them; and the planets are circles that I'll increase or decrease to accomodate the units.

Loyalty, subjugation and sabotage/blockades will be represented by the sector's background color: red for Rebels, black for Imperials; black bars for subjugation (so it shows neutral or Rebel underneath) and... something for blockades (I haven't decided yet).

Hopefully, this will make the game easier to follow for both players and watchers. It's a work in progress, so feel free to point any errors or omissions...

* It's not mandatory but I encourage you to spice things up with some fiction, pictures, and the like. It really enhances the game for all involved, including external readers.

* English is not my native language, so expect some funky grammar and awkward phrasing... Feel free to point the mistakes out, I take it as an opportunity for learning.

So, as soon as we have both players confirmed, I'll send you the links to your spreadsheets and we can get this game rolling.

And of course... May the Force be with us!

That is quite a neat map tool you've developed. A turn/reputation tracker might be a nice addition to it if that's possible.

Regardless I'm looking forward to watching this game

Yeah, I didn't think of that, I'll put a tracker on the side. Thanks for the feedback!

Oh and I forgot that the svg don't save the fonts used. I'll change the words to vectors so they fit properly.

Just noticed.. The Algebraist has 4P preference. Shouldn't someone else been invited? Not that I don't want to play against him.. just noting.

It's just preference (no "!"), so I invited him as he's first in order; Anyway, I've already contacted Donkenzo (next in line), just in case TheAlgebraist don't answer or declines.

I'm in, thanks for the invite. Arno, I am happy with either side. Feel free to choose, or pick randomly if you are also indifferent.

Awesome! As soon as you (or the dice) choose sides, I'll share the spreadsheets with you, and we can begin deploying and such...

Ok, so Arno (Thrombo) takes the Rebels; and TheAlgebraist takes the Empire. We're having trouble with our connection here (I'm on the phone now) so you'll have to wait a few hours for the complete setup.

As you can see above: map updated!
(Still, here goes again).



I've sent the links to your spreadsheets: you can edit them too, I'm not afraid of any cheating (besides, I keep copy); and you can use that to mark planets off or anything you like to do with them to help you play. Just don't mess them up and we'll be ok.

Now, to the formalities:

The Empire begins with Rodia and Saleucami under Subjugation; and Mustafar, Sullust, Mandalore and obviously Coruscant loyal.

The Rebels have loyalty in Kashyyyk, Bothawui and Mon Calamari.


The Empire may begin by deploying its forces on their planets (remember: every planet must have at least one ground unit).
For reference, the units are shown in the build queue, ready to charge the rebel scum.

After the Empire has deployed, the Rebellion may deploy their forces (also shown above, ready to bring it to The Man) between the Base and any non-Imperial planet (first Objective already sent; by the way).

At the same time, send me a PM with the base location; or just write it in the spreadsheet, but post here or by PM to let me know you're set there.


After that, I'll write the missions and action cards on your spreadsheets, and we can begin turn One...

Good luck to you both and of course; May the Force be with You!

While the Empire is struggling with barely legible handwriting, Mon Mothma, leader of the Rebellion, sits in a system far, far away and is struggling with a different problem.

*Beep, bup, bob, beeeeeep*

"What? Was that first one a semi-long or a medium long signal? Damnit! Why are all droid manuals these days written by gungans? What is he saying?... 'Meeso deploy troopses' WHAT??"

*Beeeep, bip, beep*

"Oh shut it! I just wanted you to program my Teevo!"


Mon Mothma urgently strides to her intercom.

"Jan, my dear, pray tell, were there any ship movements? It seems to be awful quiet around here."

"Sure, Mam. As per deployment orders in response to Imperial activity, there is only one regiment of troopers in the base. The rest has been deployed to Bespin."

"Military activity? Why hasn't anybody told me?"

"Mam, we sent you the R2 unit with their deployment, Mam!"

*sigh* "Why am I not surprised... well.. lets make the best out of it."


With a flick of her finger, she switches to a network wide broadcast.

"Fellows in spirit! Today marks the day where we enter a new era in our efforts of overthrowing this empire of evil. Take heart! The people of this galaxy are flocking to our cause and soon we will be free!"

She turns of the com, muttering... "And now will someone get an interpreter module for this tin can?"

You're right. Sorry, I was going by memory...

Map Updated, Base location received and cards sent.

The Rebels enlist yet another droid: the trusty -if annoying- Human-Cyborg Relations droid, C-3PO. Please tell me who's he assigned to (while I make some sort of icon for him).

And that marks the beginning of...



After selecting who is stuck listening to C-3PO, the Rebels may begin their assignments, followed by the Imperials.

Edit: I'll try again setting up the card script today in about 4 hours (lunch break). If I can't by that time, we'll have to do the first battle the old way...

"Mon Mothma! Mam, please wait!"

"Leia! What is it, child?"

"I have enlisted the help of a specialist interpreter. Surely, he will be of great use in your coming diplomatic missions! Ah... there he comes."

"Hello, Miss. I'm very honored to be your assistant. Let me introduce myself..."

"What? NO! Get this thing away from me!"

"But Mam, what..."

"NO! Take it! Take the droid yourself! I'm better of not being distracted by another... just take it!"

"As you wish, Mam. Come C3PO - lets see what our assignments are."


So Leia and C3PO go together to mission control.

Mon Mothma creates a Temporary Alliance at Utapau
Leia is assigned to mission D
Rieekan is assigned to mission A
Jan Dodonna stays in the pool
