Review Roleplaying Star Wars

SW Adv Beta Age of Rebellion

Star Wars – Beta Rules Adv

Age of Rebellion

Operation: Shell Game

Adventure Information

I ran this adventure for 1 session on the 2nd December 2016.

The characters have to infiltrate an imperial base and steal a prototype for the rebellion. The highlights of the adventure were keeping it in the intelligence family, how to put both feet in ones mouth while talking to an imperial official, imperial racism working for the party, flirting with the guards does work, opening the hanger door is a good start to stealing a vehicle, though powering up the vehicle before setting off the alarms might also have been advisable…

Episodes of the adventure:

  • Introduction (1.5 pages)
  • Welcome to Titan Base (4 pages)
  • Lay the Hammer Down (6.5 pages)
  • The Battle for Corva Sector (2.5 pages)
  • Epilogue (0.5 page) – Unlike the previous adventure, no XP discussion for achievements in the storyline

Corva Sector, Outer Rim Territories

Set in the Corva Sector, near the Outer Rim Territories

Titan Base, Corva Sector

Set on Titan Base, you get to meet the following characters in the adventure (Rival unless specified):

  • R2-M5

The Hammer, Imperial Starship

Set on “The Hammer”, you get to meet the following characters in the adventure (Rival unless specified):

  • Imperial Technician (minion)
  • TIE Pilot (minion)
  • Imperial Security Detail (minion)
  • Imperial Navy Trooper (minion)

New Vehicles

Vehicles introduced in the adventure:

  • “The Emperor’s Vision” Survey Vessel (background only)
  • “The Hammer” Imperial Space Station (background only)
  • Shell-Cracker Prototype
  • TIE/LN Starfighter
  • T-65B “X-Wing” Multi-role Starfighter

Concluding Thoughts

As an introduction to characters working with the rebellion, this is a good chance for rebels to shine. This includes infiltration, ship stealing and space combat.

This would fit into any storyline, and would scale well. This is a good side adventure if they players need to get a specific bit of technology from the empire.
