[SW:R] Use the Horse, Twilight

Post by Void Chicken (?) » Sat Nov 25, 2017 1:51 pm

The First Galactic Empire's grip reaches across the galaxy. System after system falls under its control. But the fledgling Rebel Alliance stands against it, operating out of a base hidden somewhere in the dark corners of the galaxy. Will the Alliance gather enough support to spark a mass revolt, or will they be crushed beneath the Empire's heel?

Welcome to Star Wars: Rebellion! While this game normally plays one versus one, it has a team mode that we can play two versus two. So come, equine crossover lovers, and decide the fate of a galaxy.

Thread Rules
  • We will be playing the Complete Game. First Game simplicity is for wusses.
  • We will be using the cards and rules from the Rise of the Empire expansion.
  • We will be using the starting units from the base game and the base game mission set (i.e. those with a leader icon or no icon.) I know what the expansion rules say, shut up.
  • I will relay your hands and card plays to your teammates, but no private communication is allowed. You can discuss anything you want in the thread. Feel free to drop hints or refer to hidden information, but no fancy ciphers or other funny business.
  • Missions and leaders will be assigned simultaneously, but the Empire has the right to change their mind after the Rebels finalize theirs.
  • Similarly, ship construction and deployment will be simultaneous, but the Empire can choose second.
  • Taunting and flavor always makes things more interesting. Let's see some horsie smack-talk!
Each side will be controlled by an Admiral and a General.
The Admiral will be in charge of recruiting leaders, fighting space battles, and constructing and deploying new units.
The General will be in charge of choosing missions and fighting ground battles. The Imperial General will manage the hand of probe cards that narrow down the location of the Rebel base. The Rebel General will manage the hand of objective cards, which are critical to the Rebellion's victory.

If you would like to fight for the freedom of the galaxy, post ##I am the Horse and the Horse is with me. If you want to crush the puny Rebellion, post ##The friendship that we are dealing with here is immeasurable. If you have a preference for being your side's Admiral or General, please say so.

And you might as well pretend you're horses or something. You're like, the pastel-colored shadow government of the galaxy.

I played the video game. That works the same way, right?

##The friendship that we are dealing with here is immeasurable because the Empire gets the snazziest outfits. Though honestly I'm fine with Empire or Rebellion and Admiral or General.

I'll probably pick a pony when I find out what position I get.

The forces of the Rebellion and the Empire face each other, led by these brave ponies:
Admiral Luna of the Rebellion, played by WyrdAutumn
A General-Princess of the Rebellion, played by ToastGhost
Some anonymous Admiral of the Empire, played by sharkmafia
An unspecified General of the Empire, played by Bremen
And Aataxe360 as a reserve mercenary in case one of our generals or admirals has to leave the game early I guess.

Okay the map is like a megabyte so I'm going to link them to save on peoples' data.

Pregame Map

Click the little percentage at the bottom of the window to zoom it in.

Take a look at the map of the galaxy. All those lovely systems just looking to be freed. Or conquered. Whichever. And one special place in the upper-left representing the hidden Rebel Base, which is so hidden not even the Rebels know where it is the exact location of which has not yet been decided. Many of the systems are populous, specifically the ones with the colored shapes above their names. These systems can produce new units for the war for whomever owns them. The other systems are remote.

The map is divided into regions, which those orange lines section off. The thick orange spaces mean that the systems on either side, e.g. Corellia and Endor, are not adjacent.

Also there's a bunch of stuff on the edges that gets used for the physical game. You can ignore all that.

Every populous system can have loyalty to one side or the other, showing the icon of the Empire or the Rebellion. (Remote systems count as neutral.) These systems will produce new units for their owners as the game goes on. However, the Mandalore and Saleucami systems, while neutral, have a stormtrooper icon on them. These systems are subjugated, i.e., not loyal to the Empire, but forced to work for them anyways due to the presence of ground units, which the Imperial Admiral will be placing shortly.

No, the Rebels can't subjugate. You're supposed to be the good guys.

At the end of every odd round (or the start of every even round, depending on how you look at it), every system controlled by either side will start building stuff that matches its icon(s). A subjugated system will only produce its leftmost icon, so no stormtrooping your way into a star destroyer.


But before we start playing, we have to set things up.

Admiral sharkmafia, you will place your units first. The Empire's current forces are:
  • 3 Star Destroyers
  • 3 Assault Carriers
  • 12 TIE Fighters
  • 12 Stormtroopers
  • 5 AT-STs
  • 1 AT-AT
  • 1 Death Star
Please place them in the Imperial systems (i.e. Corellia, Coruscant, Mandalore, Rodia, Saleucami, and Sullust). Each of these systems must start with at least one ground unit. I suggest spreading your forces out so the Rebels don't get a weak spot to pounce on. Don't fret over protecting your Death Star at the moment; the Rebels don't have the plans (yet). A few TIEs will do fine.

Like anything else in the game, you can discuss and plan with your General, as long as it's in the thread where the Rebel scum will be listening in.

Greetings to the assembled Imperial commanders. I am Grand Admiral Mitth'raw'nuruodo. You may call me Grand Admiral Thawn. This is my friend/lackey Captain Gilad Pellaeon.

Image
Yo.

Image
By order of Emperor Palpatine, at this moment I am assuming joint control of all Imperial forces, in coordination with the Emperor's Hand, Mara Jade. Specifically, I will be in direct command of the Imperial fleet. As such, I will be handling the disposition of our forces in order to ensure the most speedy defeat of the so-called Alliance to the Restore the Republic.

Image
Although our own forces greatly outnumber and outgun those of our opposition, it would not do to underestimate them. Therefore I propose a general defensive deployment, with an amount of forces in each Imperial system sufficient to see off all but the most concentrated Rebel assault.

Image
However, it would also not do to rest on our laurels. The Rebel threat must be actively hunted down and expunged. I propose the formation of two strike groups, each composed of a Star Destroyer, an assault carrier, and a complement of TIE fighters and ground forces. The role of these groups will be to hunt down and destroy rebel forces, and force the submission of rebel-allied systems. Based on our current intelligence as to the number of Rebel forces, they should find these strike groups extremely difficult to defeat, even if they concentrate their forces for the task. It is, however, imperative that we not allow them to grow their forces- thus, the necessity of subjugating the rebel-allied systems.

These task forces will be deployed to two of the outer systems under our control: Mandalore and Rodia.

Image
Furthermore, we possess one additional great asset: the recently completed Death Star. I believe that, regardless of their force disposition, this battle station should prove impossible for the Rebels to curently defeat. In effect, it should function as a strike group in and of itself, if accompanied by a few TIE fighters. It will make up the third force tasked with hunting and expunging the Rebel presence, and should the option become available, we may want to make use of its superlaser weapon to obliterate a Rebel-allied planet- Mon Calamari being the obvious choice.

Given this goal, the Death Star should be deployed to Saleucami.

Image
In light of all of this, I propose the following force disposition:

Saleucami: Death Star, 2 TIE Fighters, 3 Stormtroopers, AT-ST
Mandalore: Star Destroyer, Assault Carrier, 2 TIE Fighters, 3 Stormtroopers, AT-AT
Rodia: Star Destroyer, Assault Carrier, 2 TIE Fighters, 2 Stormtroopers, AT-ST
Corellia: Assault Carrier, 1 Stormtroopers, 2 TIE Fighters, AT-ST
Sullust: Star Destroyer, 2 TIE Fighters, 2 Stormtroopers, AT-ST
Coruscant: 1 Stormtroopers, 2 TIE Fighters, AT-ST

Your thoughts.

I also suggest Kashyyk as a possible Death Star target. Nothing good ever came from there.

I'm still getting a feel for the rules but your deployment makes sense to me.

Saleucami: Death Star, 3 TIE Fighters, 3 Stormtroopers, AT-ST
Mandalore: Star Destroyer, Assault Carrier, 2 TIE Fighters, 3 Stormtroopers, AT-AT
Rodia: Star Destroyer, Assault Carrier, 2 TIE Fighters, 2 Stormtroopers, AT-ST
Corellia: Assault Carrier, 1 Stormtroopers, 2 TIE Fighters, AT-ST

Admiral Luna, deploy the Rebel fleet. The Rebels start with:
  • 1 Corellian Corvette
  • 1 Rebel Transport
  • 2 X-wings
  • 2 Y-wings
  • 6 Rebel Troopers
  • 2 Airspeeders
Have I mentioned that the Rebels are weaker than the Empire?

Please place them in the "Rebel Base" location and/or one system that is either loyal to the Rebellion or neutral (including remote). Moving things to and from your base is a little awkward, so don't tie up too much of your forces there. Of course, too little in there and you risk the Empire stumbling across it with some tiny recon force and blowing it up. The First Game setup has 1 X-wing, 1 Y-wing, 3 Troopers, and an Airspeeder in the base, if you want inspiration. I recommend putting the rest of your fleet at least two systems away from the Empire.

Once the Rebel fleet is deployed, both sides will receive two action cards, abilities sure to help you in your fight. Each action says in which phase it can be used (or in response to something). Your actions can be used by whichever player matches the leader on them. If one doesn't have a leader on it, then either of you can play it.

Finally, General Twilight will decide which system the Rebel base will be in. Don't post it in the thread, of course. If you want, you can send me a (short please) numbered list of candidates that I can pass along to Admiral Luna for in-thread deliberation. You may place the base in any system that the Empire does not control. The game is riding on the Empire not finding it, so choose wisely.

Additional note, Bremen: although utapau is not affiliated with the rebellion we may want to send elements of our Sullust force to seize it. Capital ships are good, particularly since it's the only other source of star destroyers AND it can build assault carriers, which seem like highly versatile units.

Regarding the location of the rebel base: Were I them, I wouldn't place it too close to a concentration of Imperial firepower, where it might just randomly be stumbled over. Possible systems for a cautious rebel player: Hoth, Endor, Yavin, Dantooine, Mygeeto, Ilum, Ryloth.

I'm fairly sure that any one of our task forces would stand a fair chance of tipping over the rebel base by itself, hence a further incentive for them to place it off the beaten path.

Regarding leaders- we only start with four, and we need to get missions going, very obviously. Since you're handling missions, bremen, I request that you leave me at least one space leader for use in moving a fleet. It's up to you how many missions you do but we probably want to do the thing that gets us the you-know-what (explosion!!), and also doing something cool with vader would probably be rad

The better space leader would of course be nice but if you'd prefer to have him do something that's fine. Once we have more leaders this should open up a bit for us.

Oh. It's starting, huh? Okay. Time to get to work, then.

Image

Team Rocket's got their clown cars roving around most of the galaxy. Not a lot of space to breathe, but they're spread thin. If we can build up our forces, maybe we can start thinking about picking them off. In the meantime I'm sending our fleet up to Nal Hutta. Close enough to home, has a few resources we can grab for us and some hearts and minds to sway, and we won't find many other staging grounds that will let us get around the galaxy without boxing ourselves in. The Empire's big, but they're slow, and we're not. Good luck out there.

:speakest: Your Princess has decreed thy ships be sent to Nal Hutta! The bulk of the fleet shall be sent to earn freedom for our galaxy, but we will leave 1 Y-wing, 3 troopers, and an air speeder to protect our home.

The Map

I have a very limited icon selection. You'll have to look down a bit to see exact compositions.

Round 1 - Assignment Phase
Rebel Reputation: 14

Fleet Status
Rebel Base: 1 Y-Wing, 1 Airspeeder, 3 Rebel Troopers

Corellia: 1 Assault Carrier, 2 TIE Fighters, 1 AT-ST, 1 Stormtrooper
Coruscant: 1 TIE Fighter, 1 AT-ST, 1 Stormtrooper
Mandalore: 1 Star Destroyer, 1 Assault Carrier, 2 TIE Fighters, 1 AT-AT, 3 Stormtroopers
Nal Hutta: 1 Corellian Corvette, 1 Rebel Transport, 2 X-Wings, 1 Y-Wing, 3 Rebel Troopers, 1 Airspeeder
Rodia: 1 Star Destroyer, 1 Assault Carrier, 2 TIE Fighters, 1 AT-ST, 2 Stormtroopers
Saleucami: 1 Death Star, 3 TIE Fighters, 3 Stormtroopers, 1 AT-ST
Sullust: 1 Star Destroyer, 2 TIE Fighters, 2 Stormtroopers, 1 AT-ST

Build Queue
Rebel:
3: Nothing
2: Nothing
1: Nothing

Imperial:
3: Nothing
2: Nothing
1: Nothing

Rebel Leaders:
Jan Dodonna - Space: 2 intel, 1 diplomacy; 2 space tactics, 1 ground tactic
Mon Mothma - Space: 1 logistics, 3 diplomacy; no tactics

Princess Leia - Ground: 2 intel, 2 diplomacy, 1 spec ops; 1 space tactic, 1 ground tactic
General Rieekan - Ground: 1 logistics, 1 diplomacy, 1 spec ops; 1 space tactic, 2 ground tactics

Imperial Leaders:
Emperor Palpatine - Space: 2 intel, 3 diplomacy; 3 space tactics, 2 ground tactics
Grand Moff Tarkin - Space: 1 logistics, 1 intel, 1 diplomacy; 2 space tactics, 1 ground tactic

General Tagge - Ground: 1 logistics, 1 spec ops; 1 space tactic, 2 ground tactics
Darth Vader - Ground: 2 diplomacy, 3 spec ops; 2 space tactics, 3 ground tactics


Below the map are your factions' leaders, hanging out in your leader pools. The game is played by sending your leaders out into the galaxy to do your bidding. They have four functions:
  • Performing missions
  • Trying to stop the other faction's missions
  • Moving units
  • Leading your units in combat
The admirals control the space leaders, and the generals control the ground leaders.

Right now, it's time to plan for that first line of the list in the Assignment Phase. You have started the game with your four starting missions plus two more drawn from your respective decks. You'll draw two new missions every round.

Generals, you will play any number of mission cards face-down. You might want to refer to them in-thread as A, B, C, etc to help discussion. PM me which mission(s) you're playing, and I will relay the info to your Admirals. Once a mission is played, both you and your Admiral will publically assign your respective leaders to it, one or two leaders total per mission. In the event of a disagreement, the General has veto power over the Admiral's assignment.

Each mission has a skill requirement by its name: Diplomacy, Intel, Logistics, or Spec Ops, and a number from 1 to 3. Every leader is skilled in a couple of those. The leader(s) assigned to each mission must have the required skill (total) in order to perform the mission.

Every mission text either starts with "resolve" or "attempt", and will say which systems are a valid target for the leader to perform it in. A resolved mission will succeed automatically, with no chance for the other team to stop it. An attempted mission can be opposed by your enemy using their own leader, preferably with the same kind of skill. Opposing missions involves dice rolling, so the more skill you bring the better your chances of success (or making the other team fail).

Some of your missions might name a particular leader and "+2 successes". If that leader is assigned to the mission and it's opposed, your odds of success are improved a whole heck of a lot. If you don't have the leader in question, then you can either do the mission without the bonus or hang onto it in the hopes you recruit them later in the game. Up to you.

You should leave some of your leaders unassigned so you can use them to oppose your enemy's missions or move units this round. Leaders with higher tactics stats are good if you think you'll be getting in a fight. Leaders with no tactics stats can't move ships (looking at you, Mon Mothma), so go ahead and put her on a mission or hang onto her to oppose one.

You can never lose your four starting missions, so don't worry about using them.

This phase is simply assigning leaders to missions. You are not yet committed to any target, or even to running the mission at all. That comes later. In the rules as written, the Rebels do all their allocating before the Empire does. To speed things along, I will allow both sides to assign at the same time, but the Empire can change their mind after General Twilight is ##done.

Generals, please select your missions. Everyone, place your leaders on them, or save them for the rest of the round.

Also, if anyone has an action card they want to use that says "Assignment", now's the time.

Rebels:
You win the game when your reputation equals the round number, even if for an instant. Your forces are inferior to the Empire's, but you don't need to conquer the galaxy, only survive and build reputation. Then again, every blow you strike makes it that much harder for them to roll in and take stuff over.

You have a deck of objective cards (see the second post) that you will draw from every round. The first 5 cards are from Phase I, the next 5 from Phase II, and the last 5 from Phase III. Playing objectives will make you gain reputation (i.e., make the number go down). Satisfying objectives is your main path to victory. If the Imperials get a little too close to your base's system, the Rapid Mobilization mission can save your bacon.

Empire:
You win the game when the Rebel base is revealed and all of their units are removed from the system. To help find the base, you have a probe deck. The deck has one card for every system in the game, except for the six you started with and the one that the Rebel base is in. Every round, you will draw two cards from it with the knowledge that nowhere in your hand can have their base. There are a few missions for each side that can manipulate the deck or your hand.

The Rebel base will be revealed when an Imperial ground unit moves to its system. (A ship on its own will not discover the base!) When that happens, all units in the Rebel Base space on the board will relocate to its actual system on the map and there will probably be a combat for you to crush them in.

Imperial Intelligence reports that the Rebel Fleet, under the command of the Kr-Tun Horuss admiral Lu N'Aaa, has been sighted in the Hutt home system of Nal Hutta. This puts them outside of immediate strike range from any sizable Imperial elements, but also places them far away from many systems of particular strategic importance. Although they should not be underestimated, even their assembled fleet has little chance of defeating one of our task forces in open battle. They will most likely attempt to avoid combat.

Pursuing the rebels to the ends of the galaxy is likely to be a wasteful endeavor. I propose that we continue with our stated objectives of securing the loyalty- or submission- or strategically important systems. The rebels' movements should make clear their intentions, and we have sufficient forces in place to counter whatever course they choose.

Image
Again, ensure that we have sufficient commanders available to move the Fleet as needed. We should discuss our likely research projects and ground missions in further detail.

General Twilight confuses the Imperial chain of command with some
False Orders
Special
Use at the end of the Assignment Phase.
Choose 1 Imperial leader that is on a mission by itself. Return that leader to the leader pool and return its mission card to the Imperial player's hand.
Leader: None
General Tagge, thoroughly puzzled, wanders back into the leader pool. Imperial mission B goes back to their hand.

Now time for the meat of the game: The Command Phase! You will each command your leaders to do fun things in this turn order:

Rebel Admiral
Imperial Admiral
Imperial General
Rebel General

You can either reveal and carry out one of your assigned missions (provided one of the leader(s) on it is yours) or use one of your leaders to activate a system, i.e., move stuff to it.

Once you reveal a mission, you choose its target and its leader(s) head on over there to perform it, where they will remain until the end of the round. If it's an "attempt" mission, then all leaders in the system will try to support/oppose it (and your opponent will have the chance to send one more from their pool if they want). At which point I throw some dice to work out whether it worked or not. If the mission is unopposed, it succeeds with no dice needed.

If you'd like to activate a system instead, you send a leader to it. Or you can use a leader that's already there (so one placed by a mission or a previous activation this round). But only if your leader has any kind of tactics stat. Tactics-less leaders are mission scrubs that can't activate places. Then you get to move any of your units from any adjacent system(s) to the activated one. With a few restrictions:
  • Ground units and TIEs cannot move on their own. They need to be transported in capital ships with enough capacity to hold them. Immobile units can't move at all.
  • You can't move units out of a system with one of your faction's leaders in it.
  • If a subjugated system loses all its Imperial ground units, it will cease to be subjugated. Moving Imperial ground units into a neutral or Rebel system will make it subjugated.
  • You can move stuff to or from the "Rebel Base" space, but the other system still has to be adjacent to it, i.e., you'll be tipping off the Empire if you do. The actual system the base is in is considered adjacent, and can have its own units on its map space.
If you move your units into the enemy's, then combat will begin, in space and/or on the ground. Keep in mind that spaceships can't fight ground troops. It is perfectly possible for there to be ground of one faction and space of the other hanging out in the same system without fighting. Bring units with an attack matching the kind of health of what you plan to kill (while possible, a mismatched kill is much more difficult). Also use a leader with big tactics.

I'll go into detail on combat when the shooting starts.

If you are done running missions and moving units, you may ##pass the rest of the phase. Once everyone has passed, the phase will end. All missions that went unrevealed will go back to your General's hand without being seen.

Admiral Luna, your orders please.

Really, Tagge? When has a note slipped under the door constituted proper Imperial Army policy for rescinding orders? And I am certainly not 'Grand Admiral Tron,' nor am I your direct superior.

Image
My Lord, I-

Image
I hope you recognize that, were I Vader, you would already be dead. Fortunately for you, I believe in second chances, although perhaps not in third.

Get out of my sight. Return to your ship and await further orders.

Image
As for the rest of you: as i intimated earlier, our short-term posture will largely be reactive. We will use our superior resources to respond to the Rebels' movements. Stand ready with your forces- we will be recieving Intelligence's newest report soon.

I'm sending Jan to Bothawui with a Rebel Transport carrying 3 troopers and an airspeeder. The Empire is in Rodia to chase after us, but we can keep them off the ground, and going after our system ties up resources that won't be opposing our other operations. We're at a disadvantage on off-planet combat, though. We'll have to hope our pilot can make it out in one piece.

The Imperial fleet engages the poor defenseless transport.

Empire: 1 Star Destroyer, 1 Assault Carrier, 2 TIE Fighters led by Grand Moff Tarkin (2 space)
Rebellion: 1 Rebel Transport led by Jan Dodonna (2 space)

Combat!

Here is how the pewpew goes down. First, both sides will choose a tactic, and PM them to me. You don't have to use it, but you do have to play one. The attacker's tactic will happen, then the defender's. After they're resolved, I roll dice based on the total attack power of the attacker, then the defender. There is a limit of 5 red, 5 black, and 3 green per attack.

Each red and black die has:
  • A 1 in 3 chance of rolling a miss
  • A 1 in 3 chance of rolling a hit, which can only damage its own color
  • A 1 in 6 chance of rolling a direct hit, which can damage either color
  • A 1 in 6 chance of rolling a special, which can repair one damage of its own color
A green die has a 1 in 3 chance of rolling a direct hit, and a 2 in 3 chance of rolling a miss.

First the attacker rolls, then the defender. Either side may reroll as many dice as whatever leader has the greatest tactics in that system. Ships that are critically damaged are not destroyed until after both rolls, and can be saved via special dice.

After each combat round, both sides will be given the offer to retreat to a nearby system, taking all ships, one leader, and optionally some TIEs and/or ground units with them, provided there is the transport capacity left.

Once a tactic card is played, it goes into your discard. You do not recover your discard even between combats. Once you have played your entire hand, you will redraw every card except the last one played.

For now, please PM me your tactic for the first round.

The Empire employs Swarm Tactics, blasting the poor transport to bits.
On the ground, Jan points a portable Ion Blast at a TIE fighter. The TIE takes its one point of damage, but won't be destroyed until after the dice are resolved.

Despite the transport's troubles, per the rules and for the sake of example I'm still rolling the regular dice.

The Imperial fleet has a total of 4 black and 3 red attack, which rolls:
Black: Special, Special, Hit, Hit
Red: Miss, Miss, Hit.

I'll have Tarkin reroll the two red misses:
Red: (Hit), Direct Hit, Hit.

For a total of two black special, two black hits, two red hits, and one direct hit. They could pile three more damage on the transport. The TIE is repaired by a black special and so survives. It was worth a shot. The black hits are wasted.

The transport has no attack power and therefore has nothing to roll. All surviving ships are fully healed at the end of each combat.

But the transport explodes. A lot.

General Shimmer, your orders.

[All-bands broadcast from a star destroyer stationed in low orbit above Bothawui's capital city]

Image
Attention, citizens of Bothawui. I am Grand Admiral Thrawn, supreme commander of the Imperial Navy. Your planet is hereby placed under blockade. All insystem and orbital assets have been impounded. Ships that enter the system will be intercepted, and any unauthorized craft that attempts to reach orbit will be destroyed.

Image
Additionally, all planetary governmental bodies are hereby shut down, and the central legislative building located in the capital will be destroyed by orbital bombardment in one hour. You are advised to vacate the premises.

Image
The lifting of this blockade is contingent on the capture of the Rebel commander, Jan Dodonna, and the divisions under his command, which are currently being sheltered by your fellow citizens, as well as the surrender of all information that the government and citizens of Bothawui possess regarding the rebellion. Those who come forward will be pardoned for all crimes against the Empire and may petition to have their impounded assets returned. I have wide latitude to reward cooperation in this matter.

Image
Rebel elements listening to this broadcast: Your situation is hopeless. Your only means of outsystem transport has been destroyed, and your comrades do not possess the strength necessary to break the blockade. You are advised to surrender immediately; if you do, you will be spared.

Image
That is all. Glory to the Empire.
