Republican Assault on ROshon IV AAR

Republican Forces arrive on the desert waste planet ROshon IV in the Manheim System to destroy a Separatist Recon Post.

ROshon IV

The Separatist Recon Facility built using enslaved Bith labor.

Another view of the station.

"Have you ever killed a Jedi?"
"No"

Jedis Tomax and Xamot advance with Clone escort.

The brave but short lived Red Battle Droid team advances to meet a Jedi Acolyte. Last known image of the Red Battle Droid team.

Under fire from Battle Droids and Super Battle Droids the Republic forces advance.



Ground is claimed by the Clones after a young Jedi rushes the walls only to be cut down by Droid fire.

The barrels of the Speeder wilt under intense use. These things happen as you get older.

A team of ferocious Wookies advance led by One Zed A Day Kris.

The Jedis leap onto the roof of the Separatist Health Clinic but are unable to charge the Sith below.

Brutal fire fights erupt in the alleys with blasters flaring and Null grenades going off.

The Sith Charge the Jedis on the roof in a desperate attempt to stop their advance.

But are force blasted off the roof during the whirling melee!

Wookies smell fresh Sith.

The Sith charge the Wookies, the wookies take out the already wounded Sith Acolyte but fall under the blades of the Sith Master. The Recon post is lost but the Republic suffers a heavy price.

We used heavily modified Where Heroes Dare! rules for the game and we ran it about 7 turns in 3 hours with 5 players. In hindsight there needed to be less Jedis on the Republic side and a few more droids on the Separatist to even it out. That being said the mechanics ran well, even with some really bad rolls hitting the table.

More to come,
Doc

  2. Hey Adam, thanks for your interest!

    I still have more work to do on it yet. A large part of the rules is incorporating Epic Dueling between power users which seems pretty well ironed out in this last game, but there is still work to be done on Drones, Aliens, and vehicles.

    More to come!
