The two adventures it does come with sets up a nice story about an evil force attempting to raise 12 undead warriors using powerful magic. In the board game the heroes can stop this, but that's no fun! So instead our heroes arrive too late, cutting down the monsters who guard the temple where the remains are guarded only to see the 12 warriors come to life and escape on the backs of razorwings.
Who is responsible for this blasphemous crime, and what terrors might these 12 powerful beings bring once they have been restored to full power? Only brave and intrepid heroes can find out!
Let's start by filling out our Plot Sheet:
Oh and before we forget, let's meet our heroes:
I used the descriptions provided by FFG to give each character some traits, but then I rolled up some additional ones to give them all a little more complexity.
Trenloe the Strong
Attitude : Stubborn (Combative)
Social : Laconic (Down-to-Earth)
Character : Loyal (Farsighted)
Laurel of Bloodwood
Attitude : Cunning (Mischievous)
Social : (Intimidating)
Character : (Vindictive)
"Gifted from birth by an unknown power, Mok has always been set apart. His impressive size and intellect gave him a distinct advantage on the battlefield and in the council tent, and he became an influential leader in his tribe early. He lost much of his favor, however, when he began to spread a message of peace and reconciliation. His message was despised and rejected, and Mok was cast out, but he still brings his words to any who will listen."
Attitude : Considered (Laid-Back)
Social : Paternal (Guarded)
Character : Wise (Trusting)
"It is widely believed that Shiver’s origins are connected to the Shadow Tear and the fall of the Daewyl elves. However, even he cannot confirm this. His earliest memories are punishment and penance, with nothing prior. A desperate and sorrowful soul, Shiver exemplifies humble service among friends and reckless abandon in a fight, giving his all to earn the forgiveness and peace he desires more than anything else."
Attitude : Indefatigable (Inquisitive)
Social : (Phlegmatic)
Character : Humble (Righteous)
Next post we'll move on to the first act and get to adventuring!
Now we start our adventure for real! Since this is Star Wars it helps to prime the imaginative pump a little, I have to remember to slide transition every scene and see the action in 24 frames per second. Also thanks to the people who put up all the Star Wars soundtracks on Youtube, a good soundtrack is an indispensable tool for the mind.
So we begin with the first scene of our adventure. Captain Ghraystar, Commander Iyonsteen, and the three Jedi assigned to their ship (Haywren, Bing, and Leandrre) have summoned to a Senate meeting chamber to be given their mission.
There they meet with Chancellor Ben'Lorian and Admiral Jwilek-Fango. The admiral gravely explains the situation at hand, fearing that the planet of Ullbactor may have fallen to a violent invasion force or internal coup. As the crew looks on at a 3D hologram of the planet, they are told to travel to the planet at maximum hyperdrive and investigate the situation, rescuing any survivors who are in danger should they still be alive.
Also it is added that some believe the Sith currently are to be found hiding and operating along the edges of the galaxy, and that the Jedi on-board should be vigilant in sensing possible dark influence wherever they go.
