Love the write-ups! Keep 'em coming!

Sounds like a great game!

What are the four character's names?

How about this: CLICKY FOR BEAT UP YT 1760

You can find various deckplans for this vessel on the net. Check Google Images.

The name of the ship is the Black Rat (ask her... not my idea xD) and as the name says... it's going to be completely black.


Black Rat? For a Senatorial ship? Are you sure that it's not just the nickname for the vessel? Something Lionel calls it, but not offiical?

Maybe Edden has several of these vessels, all of the same class, all painted black. Lionel likes and uses one particular vessel, officially designated R-8T. Lionel calls it the "Black Rat".

Just a thought.





A Couple More Thoughts For You...

TIREE

Tiree shows up again in the adventure, The Game Chambers of Questal. You may want to incorporate that into your future adventures. And, you could take parts of that adventure, like Moff Bandor, and establish him early--way before the events of the Game Chambers are played by the players.

BTW, you probably know that "Tiree" is one of the pilots that died at the Battle of Yavin. "Lost Hutch. Lost Tiree."

That Tiree (I think his name is Dex Tiree) is a Y-Wing pilot. Vader takes him out in the trench, IIRC.

The Tiree in your game could be this same person. Maybe he ejected (had to have blown a Force Point to survive that AND get away from the DS before it blew up!). Bacta Tanks can work wonders.

Or, maybe your Tiree is a relative--his brother, maybe. Yanneth Tiree.

Or, maybe your Tiree is a Rebel Intelligence Operative, not unlike Cassian Andor from Rogue One. He's charged with locating and recruiting new recruits--especially those with high value skills, like Senatorials (who have political influence) and starfighter pilots (because the Alliance is going through those like hot cakes).

Undercover, the agent doesn't use his real name, of course. Instead, the Intelligence Arm is currently using the identities of the dead. First, it is in honor to that person's ultimate sacrifice. That person is still contributing to the cause by use of his background details, even after the person is dead.

Second, many Alliance members are hard to trace. They've been with the Alliance for years. But, there are some records out there about them. This makes it easy for Alliance Intelligence to keep using the background, inputting whatever they want for recent activity, giving the Intel agents living, breathing cover credentials.

Your Tiree could be using Dex Tiree's name and background as his cover.





Leia and Han.

They are also met by PCs in the adventure, Graveyard of Alderaan. This is another one that you might want to incorporate into your future adventures.

If you want to pull in a "Jedi" story to your game later, there is a light saber at the beginning of this adventure--just waiting for the right PC to pick it up and have a moment the way Rey did in TFA.





FRAGMENTS OF THE RIM

I love this supplement. It's a collection of random things--all cool for your game. You may want to look through this and pull things for your game.

I've always loved High Inquisitor Tremayne. I've used him before as a recurring BIG BAD GUY. You can use him as the "Darth Vader" or your campaign, if you like.

And, if you do start to meddle with the Jedi stuff, this books also brings you a great character that you can use as a mentor for them. Corwin Shelvay.




ASSAULT ON HOTH

I have never played, or even looked closely at this game. But, you may want to check it out. It may be something that you want to use when you play out the Imperial Attack.

Somewhere--maybe it was in one of the Adventure Journals--I saw some SW Miniature Battle scenario for playing the Hoth attack. If I figure that out, I'll post it here.

IIRC, the Imperial Sourcebook or the Alliance Sourcebook discusses the battle.





TIERFON BASE

I've always loved Tierfon Base, at the back of the Star Wars Sourcebook. Your Rebels are going to have to go somewhere after the Battle of Hoth (or maybe they miss the battle and leave for Tierfon before the Imperials hit).

This might be something that you'll want to integrate into your game after Hoth.

Of course, there's the Hideouts & Strongholds book, too, that you can use for base ideas.





CLASSIC CAMPAIGNS

One thing the SW game has is a lot of NPCs. There's lots of 'em. The Adventure Journal is full of them. Fully detailed, fully statted, ready to go.

I've always enjoyed Captain Ixsthmus and his crew, from the Longshot Campaign. You may want to look at that--to have a friendly, rival group of Rebels that your team interacts with, from time to time.

Rotating guest stars, if you will.





BESPIN

Since you're at Hoth, you may be interested in doing something on Bespin, too. First, there's the full blown adventure, Crisis on Cloud City. That adventure takes place concurrently with the scenes from TESB. At the end of the adventure, your players, on another part of Cloud City, hear Lando's announcement about the Empire landing--that it's time to evacuate.

I thought that might fit your campaign well.

Check out the Galaxy Guides Yavin & Bespin and the one for The Empire Strikes Back. Lots of cool info for Bespin those, plus you'll find a complete short adventure (look at the 2E versions) plus some adventure ideas for playing on Bespin.





Lots of ideas!

May The Force Be With You!

As usual thank you for your elaborate replies Wajeb! Lots of interesting ideas there.


Arrow Yep... Black Rat, is just the nickname of that particular ship. I will go for sort some of design based on the Baudo Class Yatch (I really liked that suggestion) and I also like 'RT-8' as the particular class of these ships, sounds really cool. Good thing is that as I'm making Edden from scratch... I have creative freedom and to be honest this particullar group is not crazy interested in game balance, precise rules etc. They just want a story!


Arrow Beat up YT1760...Exactly what I was looking for, thanks Smile


Arrow Players and characters:

GURNEY HALLECK
-Player: Alex
Template used: outlaw

LIONEL ARTHEMIS (Donovan Thadeus Fukdemol)
-Player: Brenda
Template used: young senatorial

INDIGO MONCADA
-Player: Judith
Template used: Pirate

P.P. MONCADA
-Player: Fernando
Template used: Brash Pilot



The outlaw is not really playing so but he chose first the template and then we talked about background. As for the first game of Rebel Breakout we just wanted to try the game we didn't really want to put too much work into this just in case we didn't like it and was discarded. However, we all had a great time and then we started working from there on solid backgrounds.

My aim is to run Star Wars maybe twice a month. It's not our main campaign as Brenda is running her game once a week.


Pirate and sister Pilot are looking for their 3rd brother who was taken by Imperial Forces when they were kids.

By the way... I reckon Indigo Moncada's old pirate mates have the Black Rat right now... hehhehe

I have creative freedom and to be honest this particullar group is not crazy interested in game balance, precise rules etc. They just want a story!




A few more thoughts...

The RT series of ships are converted Baudo Class yachts specifically customized for the Royal House of Edden. The designation stands for "Royal Transport".

These vessels were painted solid black, but if you look close, there is some gold (hard to see) trim.

The Royal House of Edden had seven of these vessels in general use for diplomatic duty: vessels R-1T through R-7T. These ships were never given single names as they were owned by the Royal House and used in a "motor pool" type fashion.





There were two other vessels, augmented, used only by the members of the Royal Family: R-8T "rat" and R-9T.

Lionel's favorite (and the ship he always used himself), was R-8T. Lionel calls it the "Black Rat".

These two special transports are augmented by having their computer systems upgraded to actual droid status. The ships are actually droids!

GM: Use the 1E rules and give R-8T some skills. Those rules say to give a droid one, two, or three skills.

If you give R-8T Starship Piloting, then the ship can fly itself just like a character flies it. It will have a vocal interface, so Lionel can give the ship commands just standing in the corridor of the vessel. He doesn't have to be on the bridge. "Rat? Take us to orbit."

Lionel could also contact the ship via comm and have it go to a certain place or come to where Lionel is--all by itself.

Cool, huh?

The droid brain of R-8T could be programmed to respond only to Lionel voice (only to the Royal Family of Edden, but since Lionel is the last one...)



Astrogation could be the second skill given to R-8T. That way, the ship can also travel through hyperspace by itself. If Lionel could get a message to it, it could actually come to Hoth by itself.

You may want to use a different skill in place of this one. If so, then R-8T must wait for human input into the Navicomp just like normal vessels and cannot travel through hyperspace without a navigator.



An obvious third skill is Starship Repair. R-8T can actually repair itself! The system incorporates these little drone units, operated by the ship's automatic repair system. They look like dinner plates placed on top of small boxes. Each has retractile spider like legs that it uses for locomotion. The little drones (not complete droids by themselves--they are directed by the ship) look like dog sized crabs, scurrying around on their multiple legs.

These drones pop out of various hatches throughout the ship (and internally, too, into maintenance crawl spaces) and on the outside skin of the ship, doing repair work.

The dish at the top of the droid is actually a socket that can hold various types of interchangeable tools, depending on the job being done at the moment.



Other Skills: Going by the rules, we're only supposed to give a droid one, two or three skills with high dice in each skill. Starship Piloting, Astrogation, and Starship Repair, as I've just detailed seem the most obvious. But, there are other ways to go.

If you want to keep Astrogation in the hands of the humans, then just focus on Starship Piloting and Starship Repair.

Starship Shields is another idea--allowing R-8T to automatically control the ship's shields in combat. Security, Comp. Program/Repair, Droid Program/Repair are other skills that could be exploited for use with R-8T.



The Pirates have the ship. Why hasn't the droid mind in R-8T taken itself and escaped?

Some ideas: The ship doesn't have Astrogation control (see above), so if it ran by itself, it would only be able to hide. The better course of action is to keep its droid status secret from the pirates and allow them to believe that the Rat is a normal ship.

Or, Rat does have Astrogation, but has shut down its droid control. The ship can be operated like a normal ship. Lionel, or another member of the Royal Family can "wake up" the droid in the ship by voice activation.



Again...just some thoughts. Use 'em or not! Very Happy

So tonight I'm running another game, taking up where we left off.

I have prepared a few things for them and quite a lot of options about directions the adventure can go.

One of them... is surprise Wampa!

The excuse is that in one of the perimetral posts a couple of workers have dissapeared last night with a snow storm. PCs are going to be sent to investigate.

I have these stats for the Wampa:

DEX 3D
PER 4D
search: 6D
CON 1D
STRENGTH: 7D
Claw attack: 7D+1
Teeth: 7D+2

+3D at hide/sneak in artic climate.



The way I want to do it is that the players find a couple of clues about the workers and end up in a cave like structure where the Wampa lives.
Rolling hide/sneak for the creature (difficult maybe) I will hide from them. If I fail the roll then they find the Wampa having lunch (tauntaun) and normal combat goes on.
If I successfully hide from them, then I can surprise them. I don't exactly know how to do that bit.... as they are 4 players it might not work great. Like... yep, surprise! then... they start shooting the wampa. Although I think if they get suprised at least the Wampa should have a surprise round attack.

Basically, I don't want this combat to go like this: 4 players see a wampa... they start shooting before the thing gets closer... thing gets stunned with each shot... thing doesn't move xD... they keep firing.. thing is dead.

Any tips?



(btw... I bet they won't stay for the wampa! players...)

Probably can't use snowspeeders because, according to the film, they aren't ready to withstand the cold yet.

So...tauntauns!

So we played Smile 2 hours session... kind of frustrating Sad


I notice that the guy that plays the pilot looked a bit tired and the girl that plays the pirate too (actually this one looked like she needed to go to sleep a bit). Anyway... with this I decided to start the game:

I did a quick catch up for the pirate and the pilot (both siblings in the game). Told them they are in Hoth and described them the base and tried to get them into the mood and the setting. Comes the morning after and they all have some lunch at the base with Lyonel the senatorial and Gurney Halleck.


This led to about 5 minutes of really cool RP led mainly by the girl that plays the senatorial. She's into her background, she acted like her character would, it was great! She took that time to get to know about the pirate siblings, ask them questions and know about their background.
I deeply enjoyed the scene and didn't even opened my mouth for about 5 minutes.

However... I noticed that the pirate started yawning... so I thought arfff she's literally falling asleep when she's got a great rp player in front of her giving it all...
Then noticed that the guy that plays the pilot even though he says he's played a lot of RPG games .... he doesn't really roleplay anything. He had told me after we finished the last game that it'd be cool to get to know the other characters a bit because the adventure at MESA 291 was so action packed that they didn't have a moment to meet each other really. So comes this moment and he acts all suspicious about the rest of the group and doesn't RP much... ok. Gurney Halleck is alright though although he's not a man of many words.


So here is the situation. I have 1 great roleplayer, 1 guy that is ok but a bit more spectator type, 1 that doesn't know what he wants (the pilot) and giving 0 roleplay and 1 that is falling asleep. And me as a noob-master... great situation!


Day carries on, the pilot notices that rebels are having trouble at the engineering department with the speeders because of the weather. He's got some dice on Tech and Repair so I thought ok, you can help with this. So he decides to help the lead engineer there but after some not very good rolls he solves some stuff but spends a couple of hours on that. 0 Roleplay on this player's part but in all honesty I had thought about them helping with the speeders and without me even mentioning anything he came out with the idea of visiting the engineering department to give a hand. So will grant him a +1 experience point Smile


After that...they still have about 6 hours of daylight so they decide to follow the lead of the missing engineering worker that was on duty at the (soon to be finished and powered up) Perimeter Point.

As the speeders still don't work they have to get 4 Taun Tauns! For this I thought... roll Beast Riding. For me as GM I want to move the plot along so thought difficulty 5 + stubborness of the taun taun (1D). I got a 6. All the players were fine so in about 40 minutes of riding in the snow... the get to the point.


They investigate a bit finding a couple of clues, a taun taun bridle and a bit of blood under a layer of recent snow.

They feel that it's getting late and they haven't come prepared. Plus they feel that the worker might be dead anyway so they decide to go back to Echo Base before it gets dark. They report to the Hangar Captain, which thanks them for their help and they volunteer to go help the day after if the weather allows.


By that point I notice the pirate is falling asleep and it's about dinner time. So we stop and have dinner. After dinner it gets a bit late talking and chatting so I decide to leave it for another day leaving me a bit frustrated thinking I've done a bad job Sad





So being critic with myself I am trying to analyze where I failed to make an enjoyable session.

I went to the session with a few things prepared:

- The Wampa / missing workers mussion if they wanted that.
- Helping with the speeders.
- Just waiting... In 3 days they were going to get a transport anyway. Will be the beaten up Equinox freighter. I know that the senator wants to get to her ship as soon as possible. I will give her the ship eventually Very Happy but... I have planned a whole adventure in Tatooine. They jump to hyperspace with the Equinox... mid jump they get out of hyperspace around Tatooine... something has failed with the hyperspace engine. They have to go down to Tatooine and get a repair... Wont' be easy but they have chances. In there I plan to drop hints for the story of the pirate brothers. So that was pretty much another adventure prepared if they wanted to take that path!


Arrow I think maybe I failed to give them more action! Or maybe a strong sense of purspose? But then the senatorial and Gurney have both worked and stablished their backgrounds giving themselves pretty good reasons why trying to get the Rebels to help them.


I also tried to care a bit about the spotlight and tried to give them time each but the pirate was falling asleep anyway. I feel that although she likes SW it's not really her thing...so I'm kind of puzzled by why did she come anyway? Also she did 0 work on her background so even though they are trying to find her brother she said ''Sorry I feel a bit tired... ehm and also I feel I have no reason why being here (as in the rebel base)''.

Then the pilot... lots of RP experience... he doesn't RP anything. It's more of a decision tree game for him. I am given a Problem ---> solutions A, B, C or D. My character would do D... then take D. 0 RP.


So the only 2 that are having a blast are the girl that plays the senator and her companion.



I am going to run next Monday again as the girl that plays the senator is not ready yet to start her own homebrew campaign (fantasy setting, D6 system). I think they will probably do the Wampa mission. If the pirate brothers are 1 falling asleep and the other giving 0 RP... I think I will run future missions with just 2 players: the senator and his companion. They said to me they had a real good time all 4 times I've run Star Wars even when they know I am a complete noob at Game Mastering. So I will run for them because I feel the other two are just coming along for the sake of doing something social that day... Thing is we see each other at least 2 or 3 times a week (some beers after work, maybe go out)... so I feel that they are coming along just because of FOMO rather than because they are actually interested on Star Wars.

It might all be my fault though Sad I'm starting as a GM... I don't know... it's hard to tell.

This is how I have thought about the Wampa encounter should my players decided to go for it:

WAMPA
DEXTERITY 3D
PERCEPTION 4D
(sneak/hide: arctic 7D -->Camouflage: +3D to sneak in arctic climates, heat-diffusing body adding +2D to sneak versus sensors.)
STRENGTH 7D
Special Abilities:
Claws: STR+1 damage
Teeth: STR+2 damage
Size: 3 meters tall


I will describe the cavern more as a net of caves, holes, full of stalactices and partially being part of a glacier. I am planning to be quite generous in description to try to get them in the mood and maybe make them feel they could even get lost in this cavern. Hopefully they might come with some inventive stuff.


Rolls:
Arrow 1) Players SEARCH vs Wampa's HIDE
If players win: they will see the Wampa soon after entering the cavern, allowing them to shoot before the creature tries to hide in the depths of the system of caverns.

If I win but players get a 15+ I will describe those caves as being not made by any type of alien/human hand more like natural caves. They will also find traces of blood confirming they are on the right track.

If players talk in loud voice: I get a +2 in my roll and there won't be surprise attack against me. If they are cautious I don't get the modifier and if they find me they will get me by surprise.

Arrow 2) Players SEARCH vs Wampa's HIDE
If players win: they will find the Wampa feasting on the poor rebel worker's tauntaun. If players have been talking in loud voice: there won't be surprise attack round against me but they will get initiative.

If I win but players get a 15+ they find a rebel helmet and a torch light. Light is not going to be a problem really in the encounter but I will give them a +2 in their next search roll. Also will let them know they might feel they are being observed. Hopefully they will take it as a hint to draw their weapons and lower their voices if they haven't done so prior to enter the cavern.

Arrow 3) Players SEARCH vs Wampa's HIDE
If players win: they will find the Wampa feasting on the poor rebel worker's tauntaun. If players have been talking in loud voice: there won't be surprise attack round against me. They will also see the missing rebel worker hanging upside down just by the Wampa.

If I win (expected), this time I will present them anyway with the missing rebel worker who is unconscious although has a bit of pulse if they check.

While they are checking... the wampa will attack from his hiding place!


I thought following order:

Completely by luck, don't have any grudge against anyone: 4 players, roll a 1D4.

The unlucky player is the one attacked.



The wampa falls over that poor PC. I don't want to be too mean so even though is a SURPRISE attack segment I will allow some luck. If the player rolls a 6, he/she will hear a crack and quickly be able to turn around and I'll let to roll a dodge with a penalty (whatever rolled divided by half). However, if that player rolls a 1 to 5 in the surprise attack... no possible dodge. The rest of the players won't be able to react during that segment independently of what we've rolled.

If I succeed to surprise them, then I will roll my 3D dexterity, difficulty 5+ (it's like a hand attack), should be able to hit that poor player.

7D+1 (claw) vs 3D+1/3D/3D or 2D+2

good chances are they might end up wounded, incapacitated or even mortally wounded (in which case they are screwed unless they brought some med pacs). That player will probably have to use a Force Point.

Combat will follow as per normal.


If at some point the Wampa feels overwhelmed it will try to escape. The players will have to then carry the missing rebel and any other PC that got wounded/incapacitated. Or chase the wounded wampa.



If they kill the Wampa and return the missing worker: money + plenty XP + depending on how heroic they do in the fight +1 force point.
If they just return the worker: money + some XP
If they have to run: little XP no money.

Back to it,


just run another episode Smile


The girl that plays the pirate didn't show up which I kinda thanked because I know her head is not in the right place at the moment and I feel Star Wars is just not for her.

I feared though an unbalanced encounter.

Before going to bed that day the pilot decided to go to work with the lead engineer on trying to adapt once and for all the speeders to the freezing cold climate. Great advance was done that night.

The morning after with the first lights they decided to go search for the missing worker at Delta Point. After looking for some clues, they found a trail of blood under a layer of snow like the one left by pulling a body. The trail pointed at the near mountains while the perimeter point is in a big valley (at least in my story). So they followed their gut feeling and started going towards the near mountain.

They didn't come very prepared (even though I gave them strong hints). They completely forgot medpacs!!!!! However one of them brought a movement/life sensor.


They approached the mountain and discover a big glacier so they started scouting for some type of big cavern where a person + tauntaun could enter.

They didn't roll very well so they didn't receive much clues + the Wampa rolled very high on hiding (even from sensors). So they lost a good part of that day. Eventually they found a cavern.

Just at that point behind the screen I rolled a dice. Result: 1. The missing worker died at that very moment somewhere inside this ominous cave that goes deep within the glacier.


They weren't stealthy at all and I carried on rolling very high against their search rolls.

Finally they reached the cavern to find a frozen rebel hanging from the ceiling. Just when they are checking the man is actually dead a thing attacked the Pilot from behind. I said to the players, let's do it by luck...

Penelope (our pilot) rolled a 2 on the dice so she was the unlucky one. Then rolled a 5 (I had said... even if this is a surprise attack if you roll a 6 I let you do a dodge with penalty knowing that whatever the creature touches has high chances of dying). No luck, however she 'trusted to the Force'.

Good strength roll (doubled stats due to Force) vs a not very good damage roll from the Wampa, Penelope goes to the floor stunned.

From then on, a lot of segments followed creating an intense chase type battle. Soon the players realise that even though they keep firing at this thing they are not really hurting him much although they are bringing it to the ground from time to time gaining a bit of time to escape the cave.

They tried to recover the body but in the end knowing the rebel is dead they all decide to run.

Final scene of the fight.. the Wampa is chasing them, with the senator nearly getting caught and one of the other two throwing a grenade into the cave. The cave collapses with the Wampa on it (although knowing what I rolled... the creature didn't die but they will never know).

They managed to escape and run back to the base to report.

They are given a reward and XP points.



They wait until the morning later and a transport is brought for them in reward for bringing back all those nice Y Wings. Transport is the beaten up YT Corellian Freighter.


The game finished with them introducing the coordinates to the planet where the Senatorial's Ship is kept (with a friendly ally).

They jump to hyperspace.... and mid flight something happens with the hyperdrive mechanism... an emergency... they exit hyperspace to find themselves in front of a strange planet that looks like a desert in a system with two suns. The Senatorial curses... and that's how we ended the game.

---------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------


Players had a blast so I was quite happy with the session.

Combat was great, it's not realistic but actually I prefer it that way although had to explain them before hand what type of system this is. I don't want to change to 2nd Edition because it looks too complicated.


--------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------


Mechanical question!

The Senatorial fired at a big stalactite just above the Wampa. She passed the shot so the stalactite started falling. I didn't have a clue about what to use then. The Wampa had a big reaction roll (even with -1D for other action taken before). I said to the player... roll me Dex... she didn't roll great so the stalactite fell on the floor very close as the Wampa dodged it showing great skill.

It was an inventive moment and I thought mechanically I could have used something better.

Any idea/suggestion on how to handle this under 1st Edition?
