|Star Wars: Age of Rebellion | Published 14 August 2014|
The sounds of alarms cut through the air. Imperial Star Destroyers loom above the horizon. TIE bombers race through the canyon, and the thunder of their bombs reverberates through the corridors of your base. Arda I is no longer safe.
Onslaught at Arda I thrusts you and your friends into a rich and action-packed series of struggles against overwhelming Imperial forces. Your situation is desperate, but if you maintain your courage, work together, and use your skills and blasters to good effect, you just might survive… and strike a massive blow against the Empire in the process.
At 96 pages, Onslaught at Arda I is full of desperate struggles, tenuous alliances, and large-scale combats against an overwhelming enemy. Moreover, as you fight your way through the adventure’s harrowing battles and delve through its intrigues, you will also encounter optional rules for mass combats and in-depth gazetteers for several new settings that may add new dimensions to your extended Age of Rebellion campaigns.
Recovering from Disaster
In Star Wars: Age of Rebellion, you become a member of the Rebel Alliance, which is vastly outnumbered and outgunned in its war with the evil Galactic Empire. When things go well, your recon missions, intel ops, and guerrilla raids go off without a hitch. When things go well, you play your part to weaken the oppressive Empire, and individuals throughout the galaxy breathe just a little more freely.
Things don’t always go well.
In Onslaught at Arda I, a traitor reveals the location of your secret Rebel base to the Imperials. You and your companions must aid the base’s evacuation, even as Imperial forces draw near and battles rage all around you. Here, staring into the jaws of defeat, your acts of heroism can still make a difference. The Mass Combat rules in Onslaught at Arda I allow your Game Master to quickly adjust the adventure’s narrative – and the results of the larger battle.
When things don’t go well, the Rebellion relies upon the courage and resourcefulness of its members. Just as Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Leia Organa were able to snatch victory out of the jaws of defeat in the original Star Wars trilogy, you, too, will have your chances to make your mark in the Galactic Civil War. As you play your part during evacuation of Arda I and race to find and capture the traitor who exposed the base to the Imperials, Onslaught at Arda I offers you plenty of chances to rise above the moment and help reshape the Rebellion’s fate.
After all, it’s easy to play your part when things go well, but how will you fare in the face of disaster? That’s the true measure of a hero.
The Rebel Alliance is outnumbered and outgunned, and it’s reeling from a sudden betrayal. As the Imperials close in upon one of its bases, the Rebellion needs heroes more now than ever. Will you be one of them?
