 Adventure info

Episode 1: The Imperial War Machine

This adventure displays the power of the imperial armada during the battle of the Niyrius system, while the PCs help Commander Foxwell to destroy a rebel base.

The first sight of the PCs when exiting hyperspace is the ISD Judgment, two Nebulon-B Frigates, the Kryptoria and the Sparta, and Ties are swarming the place. The rebels were literally getting blasted out of the sky, and they arrived just in time to witness an old rebel’s Dreadnought-class Heavy Cruiser get cut in half by the Imperial Star Destroyer Judgment’s turbolasers. The rebels had a few X-Wings, a few A-Wings, a few Z95 Headhunters, the infamous B-Wings Phantom Squadron, and another, heavily damaged, Dreadnought-class Heavy Cruiser. Not long after, the Mon Calamari Cruiser Gladiator, commanded by Commander Fitz Gorr jumped out of hyperspace, positioning himself to cover the rebel escape, in a very unusual way.

Arriving on the planet, manning the laser turret, L33T took down some minor base defences, 2 aces, and a few more fighters! After landing, Dargon converted a native to the Empire to help the PCs, while Undrake was capturing a transport ship, full of ready-to-be-interrogated-rebels, where he also extracted a part of the hyperspace coordinate, leading to their destination.

Then the PCs fought a few rebels, found a huge reinforced blast door that they tried to blow up, but they were lacking a few explosive charges to do so. Luckily, the explosion opened a side path, underground, which lead to fight an invisible beast. Jenssar also learn and saved data about a traitor, Undrake got a datapad containing information about the curious beast and gathered a few mushroom samples, that lead to an interesting conclusion.

Heading back to space, Jenssar face Juno Eclipse for the first time since she left the Empire and killed her two wingman. Meanwhile, the Ion Cannon disabled the Nebulon-B Frigate Kryptoria, the Nebulon-B Frigate Sparta was disabled and rendered unusable by the Gladiator, Phantom Squadron disabled the gravity-well-projector of the Destiny after a saboteur from the inside diverted the power from the shield to the hyperspace modulator, creating an overload that disabled the primary power modulator, in a big laser-ball. The Gladiator blocked the Destiny’s line of sight so many transport ships jumped to hyperspace.

Finally, Grand Admiral Barret Marr and Grand Moff Leeadra Leonis arrived on board of the Executor-class Star Dreadnought Liberator, blasting the remaining transports out of the sky and launching a ton a Ties! The Gladiator was heavily damaged before jumping into hyperspace.

Imperial Intelligence Commander Rostock blamed the ISB for their botched investigation on board of the Destiny. She also bragged about all of the data gathered by the Imperial Intelligence, and pointed out how the Overwatch Division failed to destroyed the Ion Canon and how they terminated multiple hostages that could have withheld critical information.

The Sparta was part of the imperial armada during the battle of the Niyrius system.

The Sparta was disabled and rendered unusable by the Gladiator.
