Hey everyone, I have a gaming group that I am getting together, interested in the idea of playing out a tabletop Imperial Civil War campaign utilizing the games from Fantasy Flight, namely X-Wing, Armada and Rebellion.
The baseline idea is that, using the Armada campaign 'The Corellian Conflict' as a guide, design a galactic scale conflict in which each player is a warlord attempting to take over the remains of the Empire. X-Wing will be utilized for early skirmishes and specific missions later on, while Rebellion will be used primarily for its pieces as map markers, with the possible inclusion of some of its mission and hero rules as I become more familiar with them (Just got the Rebellion game and there is a more mission based expansion coming out soon).
Each player has two choices to make at the beginning of the game. The first is their command ship, which will be either the more direct Decimator or the more command oriented Lambda-Class Shuttle. The second choice is who they are, their character in the game. The second choice is divided into 7 options; Governor, Fleet Officer, General, Intelligence Agent, Vassal, Flight Leader and Dark Jedi. Each provides a different set of bonuses, yet to be determined, that will affect your playstyle. (One player is allowed to represent the New Republic, beginning with their choice of freighter and choosing a Rebel appropriate version of one of the character classes)
While you, yourself, are a character in this game, you will also have the ability to recruit other notable characters into your faction through a second resource, 'Renown', which will be gained both through winning battles and through controlling certain key systems. This takes the place of the 'Campaign Points' used in the Corellian Conflict campaign.
There is still a long way to go on this game design, but I wanted to see if anyone here had any thoughts to share, if anyone has attempted something similar, etc... Eventually, when I am done, I will make a pdf of the rules and the map hopefully that I can upload.
