    The Mon Calamari cruiser Defiance slowly advances into the contested area.

    bx6yo903s5pp.gif
    MC80 Defiance reveals a Navigate command, and elects to save it as a Navigate token.
    At speed 1, it advances straight ahead.

    @Fuselage activates his ISD, Impertinent, which has also chosen a Navigate command. What're your orders?

    Similarly, the ISD Impertinent slowly advances, but yaws slightly to port to keep its massive bow weapons trained towards the oncoming cruiser.

    ISD Impertinent reveals a Navigate command, and elects to save it as a Navigate token.
    At speed 1, it adjusts 1 click to port.

    This brings us to the end of the first ship phase. Up next is the Squadron phase; with Imperial initiative, the TIE Bombers of Gamma Squadron will move first, followed by all three X-Wings. @Fuselage to order his bomber escort!

    Gamma Squadron hews closely to its mothership, and idles forward.

    @Betsuni can now give orders for all three of his X-Wing squadrons in any order desired.

    Somewhat hard to see at this scale, but I've nicknamed them ...

    "Lock S-Foils in attack position," comes the distorted order over the comms unit as the X-Wings race ahead of their charge, entering into the fringes of the asteroid cluster before them.

    bt7qw1fh6jmy.gif

    This brings us to the end of the Squadron phase. We now enter the Status phase. No one has won yet, so we move on. All exhausted defense tokens and abilities reset, and we flip the initiative token and move up to round 2. Next item? The Command phase - @Betsuni, @Fuselage, please submit a new command for each of your ships.

    For range notes: the TIE/bs are currently ~distance 5 from the station; the X-wings are distance 3-4 from the station. The station is at long-range from the ISD, and quite a bit beyond long range from the Raider. Long range from the MonCal covers to just short of the station.

    Commands are set! We move on to the Ship Phase of Round 2 (out of 6).

    With initiative, @Fuselage gets to activate one ship first. The Raider or the ImpStar?

    RDR Insubordinant reduces speed, not wanting to be too far in front of the ISD - probably worried about "friendly fire" ...

    gl400gscmge9.gif
    RDR Insubordinant reveals a Navigate command, which it uses to decrease its speed to 2 (2-2).
    No further moves.

    @Betsuni activates the Defiance - with no targets in-range - which has a Squadron command, which lets it activate up to 4 squadrons at close-to-medium-range to move and attack in any order immediately. All 3 X-Wing squadrons are in-range to be commanded. At Speed 3, they will not be able to reach attack range of any Imperial vessels or squadrons. Alternatively, Betsuni can save the Squadron command as a token to, at a later time, activate 1 squadron that way. Then, we'll need an order for the MC80 (currently slow-rolling at speed 1); note that no enemy vessels are in-range for an attack at the moment.

    What's it going to be, Betsuni?

    (Also, side note: once a ship is activated, you can give the orders for it here - no need to PM them, as they aren't secret.)

    The ISD doesn't look favorably on servants of the Empire that choose to share their commands.

    MC80 Defiance reveals a Squadron command, which it saves as a token (after revealing your dial, spend to order 1 squadron at close-medium range to move and attack immediately).
    It advances straight ahead at speed 1.
    No further moves.

    Last up for the ship phase is @Fuselage with ISD, and then he can roll right ahead into the Squadron phase with Gamma Squadron.

    The ISD activates with no targets in range, and reveals a Concentrate Fire command. What're its orders?

    I've had to look at the book a few times to make sure I'm doing anything semi-correctly, sorry!

    ISD moves 2, with 1 click on each knuckle? I'll keep the Concentrate Fire as a token and move the bombers to stay on my left flank.

  • ElvenshaeElvenshae Registered User regular
    @Fuselage

    You’re currently moving speed 1, with 1 click of turn available

    You can spend your Nav token to speed up to 2 if you want.

    The Impertinent accelerates, its large bank of engines glowing ever brighter, and its maneuvering thrusters fire hard, swinging the massive ship around. The TIE Bombers of Gamma Squadron continue along in its wake, again barely throttling above idle to pace the warship.

    ISD Impertinent reveals a Concentrate Fire command, which it saves as a token (reroll 1 die during an attack). It spends its Navigate token to increase speed to 2 (1-1).
    It turns hard a-port.

    Gamma Squadron moves a short distance to remain on the ISD's port side.

    Up next are the X-Wings; @Betsuni , what're they up to?

    From.the ISD's perspective it will shift/list/bank/cheat over to the right, toward "south" of the space station, just a click.

    @Fuselage

    When you activate the ISD, its Squadron command triggers. If you'd like, you can either activate your TIE/b immediately, or save it as a token to activate the bomber immediately on a later turn. The bomber can't currently attack anyone, so the second makes the most sense at the moment, so I'll assume you do that unless I hear otherwise.

    The Impertinent swings by the neutral station, reminding them who holds the ultimate power in this galaxy.

    s4yxola6h98g.gif
    ISD Impertinent reveals a Squadron command, which it saves as a token (activate 1 squadron; it can move and attack).
    It moves forward at speed 2 (1-1), turning 1 first knuckle notch to startboard; it overlaps the station, and would discard a damage card except it doesn't have any at the moment.

    @Betsuni to activate your MC80. It reveals a Concentrate Fire command, unfortunately no enemies are in range to attack. What's she doing?

    Can I use my stored Navigate token to increase speed and move forward through my X-wings? Also guess I'll toss my command token since I cannot carry two.

    @Betsuni

    Yes, you can spend your Nav token to increase speed at this point.

    You can carry 3 command tokens; you have a Navigate (about to spend it) and a Squadron, and so can handily store a Concentrate Fire since you're spending the Nav token.

    If you run into your X-Wings, Fuselage gets to reposition anything you hit, so long as it's touching your ship.

    @Fuselage , where would you like me to put Luke? He can be anywhere, so long as he's touching the MC80.

    And then tell me what the RDR is doing, and then what the TIE Bomber is doing.
