Then you're describing a Wraith op. Which I'm fully for.

Yeah, this reminds me of a line from Tom Clancy's Red Storm Rising about warfare: "All the parts have to work or the other guy wins."

I stopped reading the X-Wing series at Wraith Squadron because I found I didn't care about the Wraith squad characters as much as the Rogues. I suppose I'll need to remedy that.

Yup. Heck one of our sparks convention big sessions (interactives as we call them) had a mission where cause one table royally borked things up, had a big impact on 2 other tables... So the GMs of all 3 had to take a 5 min time out to work out HOW bad that impact would be, but not make it SO bad, that we would have had a lot of pcs lost.

Oh, I heard of a three-part adventure of three teams that ran a SAGA game like that at a convention. Each table had objectives and the success/fail of each table affected the other two tables. Kind of like the ground mission on Endor affected the space mission on Endor.

From what I heard it was pretty wild.

Those sorts of missions are a blast to partake in, but it can be challenging, working out what bad things can happen to say table 2 if those in table 3 (or 1, or even both) fail.. Or even worse, have a grade of bad things, one for just the one table failing, something else for the other table failing, and a third possibility if both the other tables fail..
