    Woohooo.... the RPG was excellent. both parties outdid themselves. Props to Ricardo for his excellent evil character, great intimidation check!!!

    The story was superb and i thank the GM's for that! still not sure what the title meant.... maybe to do with all the ghost that we saw at "Borhan's Transports"...

    i'm still surprised at Ghoular's firepower... who would've thought that with only one firing round that puny possed rebel would die! sorry Gerry!... after all, you did kill Digou and Ghoular's mother... hehe

    so as pete said... now Goular and Hog are a team and are traveling the universe, fighting the empire on a kick ass ship with lots of guns on it! yay!

    Felicito a ambos GM's por haber logrado (y con mucho éxito) algo que para mi pareció como algo imposible en primera instancia. Tambien felicito a todos los jugadores por el nivel de dedicación con que se prestaron para el juego; Ricardo y Gerry siempre demostraron un nivel excepcional de roleplaying y preocupación con los asuntos del campaign fuera del juego, y no dudo que a los lightsiders le fue igual. Espero que nos reunamos a jugar todos en otro major campaign en el futuro cercano.

    Solo lamento una cosa: haber concentrado mi pensamiento en sobrevivir en vez de ganar.

    Me alegro que hayan disfrutado, definitivamente valio la pena el esfuerzo. Para mi lo mejor era sentarme a escuchar las discusiones de Roman, Digital y Pedro al final de las sesiones del Light Side.

    "Ese Sith Gungan TIENE que ser Gerry... El Mandalorian no puede ser un Dark Side player, no puede haber muerto alguien del DS team tan rapido... Ricardo de SEGURO es un Sith...", etc.

    I would just sit there and smirk. And by the way, Yass was not Sith. :p

    You don't have to be a Jedi or Sith to be proficient with a lightsaber. :p

    Nota aclaratoria, desvelando el misterio del dark side Kel Dor.

    Su nombre es Kros Talmon (Lord Talmon) para algunos. Descendiente del antiguo rey de durin que escogió a su hijo ilegítimo para succederle. Solo le queda a su familia el nombre y la memoria. Nace en el exilio, en Imperial City. Recibe toda la educación de un aristócrata con los retazos de hacienda que quedaban. Detesta a los jedis porque ayudaron al "falso rey" a mantener su poder cuando sus antepasados dieron un golpe de estado. Fue criado con la noció de ser superior y esto fue alimentado por su proeza en la fuerza. No cree en la idea ttradicional de la fuerza más bien cree que es una extención, una manifestación visible y palpable de su grandeza innata.

    El emperador conoce de su proeza en la fuerza y lo recluta para ser una de sus manos invisibles.

    Memorable moments in the campaign
    We had our share of funny situations, scary scenes, and dramatic sequences of cinematic quality in our play sessions. Here are just a few to break the ice:

    • Rann talking to the receptionist at Borhan's Transports, then Ghoular telling him "heh, you want her" right in front of her face (first session, LS)

    • Hog acting like a mediocre Imp maintencance worker at the Imperial Comm Center (second session, LS)

    • Ghoular trying to climb the crashed Sith Infiltrator and failing miserably, alerting the Thugs that were looting it (third session, LS)
    Post your most memorable moments here!

    More memorable moments in the campaign

    - Rann (me) got his lightsaber stolen. Since only Ghoular (Digital) knows that he was a Jedi, Rann only asked him for help, something that Hoggar (Pete) didn?t liked. At the end the crime lord that have the weapon asked us for money or a fight (recorded to sell it latter) and Ghoular asked Hoggar to be the fighter. (first session)

    Hoggar won, but Rann received more than his lightsaber. He received the wrong end of Ghoular vibroblade. Outch.

    Oh and I was sooo a rookie here, not knowing what to do. It was so embarrassing that it hurts.

    - We were fighting ?ghosts?. Hoggar missing several round his enemy until he at last hit it. Just to find out that he only could hit it with an energy weapon. (four session)

    - In the same fight, one possessed Imperial Guard puts Ghoular in negative wounds and knocked him out. The guard was ready to kill him, I shoot to it and miraculously killed him (he survived a previous thermal detonator, btw). And I only have 1 Wound Point and 1 Vitality Point at that moment! (four session)

    - Having fun with ?move object?. We were trying to sabotage the imperial communications. While Ghoular used an imperial uniform and some detonators to cause a distraction (the dark siders should thank us for that), Rann and Hoggar were trying to infiltrate the base from the other side.

    There was one scout trooper still making his round. When he was walking away from us Rann moved a rock and hit him behind his helmet. He turned and starts shooting at the rock like a mad moron ending his munitions. Rann hit him again with the rock a return the rock to us. He runs behind it and Hoggar finished him. (third session)

    - After destroying the communications building we have to escape with a lot of troopers behind us with only 1 bike. We have to jump to the river water because the poor bike hardly could move.

    - Me asking for a medic at the end of 2 sessions (third and four session)

    Here's my character's backstory:
    --
    Name: Juxar Qinn
    Species: Mandalorian (Human)
    Class: Soldier/Bounty Hunter

    Born and raised on the planet Mandalore, Juxar Qinn was trained for battle at a very early age. His people were accustomed to war and constant confrontation, so he also felt his obligation to be ready for anything. His abilities in both armed and unarmed combat were lauded by his peers, especially his older brother, Harik, which he admired for his bravery and skill as a Mandalorian warrior.

    As soon as he came to age, Juxar formed part of an elite squadron, the Mandalorian Shocktroopers, chosen by Mandalore himself and assigned to fulfill special tasks throughout the galaxy. He was used to being far from home, but one time away from his planet would prove costly.

    His last mission, on the snow covered planet of Galidraan, was to take care of a local insurgency. The Shocktroopers were succesful in completeing this task, but were ambushed by the DeathWatch, a band of ex-Mandalorians. During this encounter, Juxar and the Shocktroopers were overwhelmed. He managed to escape with his life, but to face an even greater challenge.

    Jedi cruisers were called upon to defend Galidraan from the Shocktroopers. A grand battle later ensued between the Jedi and the Mandalorians. Juxar alongside his comrades managed to hold their own against the Force users. Unfortunately, the odds were not in their favor. In the midst of battle, a padawan managed to catch Harik off guard and kill him. Witnessing his brother's demise, an enraged Juxar fiercely attacked the Jedi learner, who could not withstand the might of the warrior. Disarming his opponent, Juxar took the Jedi weapon and stabbed him in the chest, then kept the lightsaber as a souvenir.

    The loss of Mandalorian life was great and the Jedi emerged victorious. Juxar barely managed to escape the planet, but swore lifelong revenge on those who exterminated his people. Keeping his identity and whereabouts a secret, he honed his skills as a bounty hunter preying on those who are sensitive to the Force until everyone of them is dead and buried.

    Here is the First Act of the Light Side branch of the Campaign:

    Act I ? First Light at Dawn

    This might very well be the small stone that turns into a giant snowball as it rolls down the snowy mountain. Bail Organa has decided it is time to make a move against the oppressive hold of the Empire. He has decided to investigate further on the rumor that the Empire is involved in illegal arms trade on his planet, which if true, would be totally unacceptable. The agreement that Alderaan remain a peaceful planet must not be abused by any party.

    As Bail makes his preparations to leave for a routine Senate meeting at the Imperial Center, he ponders on the decision of who will fire the first shot. His mind turns to his good friend Borhan Llor, administrator of a local trading company called Borhan's Transports. Borhan is very well aware of the rumor that the Empire is stockpiling illegal weapons on a remote warehouse, and will be glad to work on a mission that might help discredit the Emperor and reveal his true intentions before the Imperial Senate. His company might just be dedicated to the shipment of cargo to destinations all around the galaxy, but he and his employees are very capable of undertaking tasks on the ground as well.

    Borhan is also a Jedi Master in secret, who has been training his adopted son Rann I-Kanu in the ways of the Force. Bail is among the very few people who know this. Borhan has decided that Bail?s mission will be perfect training for Rann, and decides to take him along. To aid them in this endeavor, a mercenary named Ghoular Massan has been hired. He has done missions for Borhan in the past, and has agreed to escort Rann and him inside the Imperial warehouse.

    Carved on a mountainside along the remote Altor chain lies the facilities of Borhan?s Transports. As Ghoular discusses the specifics of the mission, he looks down at the hangar through a transparisteel window. A mid-sized cargo transport enters the hangar through a wide opening that leads to the wilderness outside. As the ship lands in its appointed space, Rann exits the cockpit. He remembers that his adoptive father wanted to talk to him about the special mission as soon as he returned from this delivery. He enters the lift that takes him to the upper story offices, and walks into Borhan?s office. Each one takes a holorecorder, with which they should take images of their findings. Borhan tells him they are leaving in an hour, so Rann decides to go to his quarters to rest and get a change of clothes. Ghoular also has temporary access to a guest room, and he heads there after his business with Borhan is done.

    The rooms contain plain furnishings, but serve their purpose well. After a few minutes of resting in their quarters, Rann and Ghoular head to the lobby at the top floor of the facility. The lobby is adorned with exotic holopaintings and models of transports and other types of starships. In the center of the room lies the round reception desk, where Dhala is talking to some customers. As Rann walks by he greets her, but quickly decides to leave her to her business, as the customers seem somewhat unhappy. Ghoular and Rann walk up to the security checkpoint in the lobby entrance, and as they talk to the guards, Borhan steps out of the lift. The transport that will take them to the Imperial warehouse has arrived. It is time to go.

    The driver takes them down a desolate road in the Alderaan wilderness. Soon they find themselves inside a deep forest, as the night falls all around them. They reach the side of a mountain, where one of Borhan?s agents is supposed to have secured them an entrance to the facility. The transport stops and the three step down, getting ready for any opposition. They approach the door in the mountainside, but it does not open. Borhan wonders if they have been set up. He decides not to think about that and to move on, Treading silently around the side of the mountain, they find a second door. As they approach it, the door makes a deep roar and it slowly opens halfway. Preparing for the worst, Bor

    Here is the First Act of the Dark Side branch of the Campaign:

    Act I - The Summoning

    The time is set during the Empire's glory days. This is a time of opression and persecution. A perfect time for the Dark side to claim what has been denied to them for eons.

    In the midst of Imperial Central 3 of the most dangerous beings in the Galaxy are summoned to the Emperors chamber. In there they are trapped and forced to battle three battle droids in total darkness to prove their worth. Completing their test the lights uncover the three beings standing atop the rubble that where their opponents. An elegant Keldor adorned by a Indigo Robes and a silver mask. A darkened bounty hunter who cares little for this silly task and finally an uncommon imperial officer that appears from behind the throne of the emperor with a rapier in his hands.
    The emperor applauds their cunning and scolds Vader for ever doubting them. He then goes on into briefing them of a small uprising that has begun in lower Imperial Central. The 3 warriors are dispatched on a hurry for the first one to complete this task shall be the only one rewarded.
    They arrive to a transport that they have been supplied and taken to the lower part. There they behold and ambience of despair and lonelyness. The group separates. The Bounty Hunter leaves alone, the Keldor and Officer go together. Upon these two roads they find different things. The Keldor and Officer are ambushed by a pack of Noghris, they engage in a battle where the officer nearly looses his life.....
    On the other side the BH faces a group of smugglers. He battles them for a while but ends up holding one for hostage while the others are forced to disarm. After some heavy questioning resulting in the death of one of the men. The BH follows them into the warehouse where the group disbands and runs away. There the leader, a sleazy smuggler known only as Xaros Grey, begins to bargain for his life. The BH unimpressed realeases a shot that inadvertedly lets loose the cargo that Xaros was smuggling. Now the streets are infested by wampas. Xaros is then forced to leave thru and alternate route, here the BH is tricked and Xaros manages to escape.
    The group then meets in front of some housing complex and begin to pinpoint where the target is. After arduos attempts and different methods to get the people to open doors (sabotage, barging in, Tapping comunications and an awkward Imperial Survey) They manage to find the place. There a family and a group of friends enjoy a friendly game of sabbac. The game is disbanded and the house owner shot thru the head by the BH. The wife was brutally murdered and the children burned alive. The Keldor swiftly followed his objectives and took the head of the leader and his child. When they tried to run away they where attacked by wampas. The Keldor and Officer managed to escape while the BH fell in the middle of a heated Wampa vs. Nexus battle. He was saved bye Xaros Grey who was reclaiming his goods.
    After that a strong race began between the Keldor and BH. They where pursuing each other thru the streets of Imperial Central while trying to get the items for the bounty.
    The Keldor victorious arrived in front of the emperor. He received his prize and then the emperor scolded the others for being poor at their task. After a public show of force and discipline conducted by the emperor by killing the little girl. The group was instructed to destroy the last remaining threat in the galaxy..........a Jedi Master. Each was instructed on the whearabouts and why they where chosen for this endeavour by a holo-projector.

    More memorable moments in the campaign
    In one game, Jan was throwing so many natural 20s attacking us that not only we started telling each other what new character we wanted to create, but you could see the worry in his face. You must remember what a ?despistado? I am.

    Yeah I remember that one! It was definitely the longest streak of consecutive critical hits I have ever seen. I was like, well, after this the Darksiders are probably going to have a walk in the park in the finale. But then Roman, who only had one Wound point left, shot at the enemy and rolled a natural 20 that translated into direct Wound damage to the possessed Royal Guard, saving Ghoular's life, who was lying unconscious at around -4. Strangely enough, Hog didn't seem to be worried at all about his teammates' fate, though, as he took all the time of his life just trying to calmingly hit the Wraiths with his melee weapons (and missing every time) while the others were getting totally whooped.

    Funny moment indeed. [face_laugh]

    Not to mention that when you at last hit the Wraith that was attacking you, you learned that you needed to attack them with energy weapons, not with a vibroblade. :)
