Star Wars – Adventures
Age of Rebellion – Game Master Kit
Dead in the Water
I ran this adventure for 4 sessions from 7th April 2017 to the 19th May 2017.
This adventure was a droid collection service for one of the intelligence frigates in the rebellion.
Two droid antagonists in a row, who’d have guessed, the highlights of this storyline was when the droids turned on the party, characters forced to use escape pods, and the desperate final battle with imperial intelligence.
Episodes of the adventure:
- Introduction (0.5 page) A much better introduction than the previous adventure.
- Blue Milk Run (6.5 pages)
- Shadow Raptor Revolt (14.5 pages)
- Logistics Peril (4.5 pages)

The best piece of this section is the Shadow Raptor, an intelligence vessel that should be included in any Rebel campaign, even if it is only in the background. It also give good maps of a Nebulon B Frigate that can be used for other examples of the ship type. This includes various ways to sabotage, or infiltrate them if case they are used by the opposition of the storyline. This would also make a good training mission.
Next is Port Tooga, it has enough that it can be used in various locations. Also the premise of the run works as a reusable set piece, as I expect the Empire to have used the tactic multiple times.
