The First to Strike
Me too. I’ve begun mustering the materials and warming the forum. Rick is going to transcribe the hand scrawled characters into an easy math template and crunch some numbers for me so I can recalibrate the challenge level appropriately. I’ve lost my main binder but have a lot of the files on hand, so look for the recaps soon.
I WANT TO PLAY!!!!!!!!
You may each also spend a Force point (1 leftover, or subtract 1 from the next adventure if you used them all) to instantly acquire 1000 additional credits worth of supply to obtain any legal, unrestricted supplies or services (which might be available on The Resurgence). Given that it is a military ship – you can use this to requisition armour (trading in your existing kit if need be, at half price), to contribute toward the cost of upgraded armour. Note that this is an abstract system – you aren’t actually “buying” armour from an armour store on the ship. It’s an abstract allocation of resources transaction, and your Force point is pulling rank or influence of some kind (or however you want to interpret it)

Alderaanian Resistance (by old_benn and ShadoWarrior): Spoiler:Hide
The Alderaanian Resistance is a fledgling organization created in secret by Senator Bail Organa at the start of the Dark Times. As time goes on, the Alderaanian Resistance grows, and joins with other paramilitary groups, and ultimately becomes the Alliance to Restore the Republic (Rebel Alliance). But early in the Dark Times, the Alderaanian Resistance is not particularly widespread, nor well equipped.
Members of the Alderaanian Resistance are often simply called “Rebels”. The Rebels oppose the Empire at every turn, and will take action against it whenever they can inflict damage without exposing themselves too severely. They are no match for the Empire in strength, and rely on guerilla tactics and espionage to achieve their goals. Being vastly outmanned and outgunned, the Rebels boost their morale by taking reassurance from their visible, heroic, “poster-boy” members. Such members are highly regarded and are valuable members of the organization. Rebel recruits find new strength within themselves in order to better serve their “heroes”. The Rebels also strive for the revival of the Jedi Order. Force-sensitive beings without Dark Side points are held in high regard. The Rebels are always looking for effective agents and officers. Soldiers, Officers, Infiltrators, and Saboteurs are at a premium.
The Rebels value each member of the organization, and place a high priority on teamwork. Members are taught self-reliance early on in their training, but they are also taught to work together whenever possible, for the greater good of the Rebellion.
Enemies and Allies: The greatest enemy of the Alderaanian Resistance is the Empire. The Rebels might also attack criminal organizations in order to obtain needed resources, or to indirectly hurt the Empire, but the Empire is always the Alderaanian Resistance’s main focus.

7-11 – Sergeant: An honorific that conveys no additional mechanical benefit.
12-16 – Lieutenant: Those who demonstrate the ability to lead are granted the rank of Lieutenant. Lieutenants have learned to identify standard Imperial tactics, and use this information to keep themselves and their troops alive in combat. As a swift action, Lieutenants may grant themselves and all allies within 6 squares a +1 insight bonus to Reflex defense against Imperial opponents for the duration of the encounter. All such allies must be able to hear and understand the Lieutenant to receive this bonus, and must remain within 6 squares of the Lieutenant to retain this benefit.
17-20 – Captain: An honorific that conveys no additional mechanical benefit.
21-30 – Commander: Commanders are given broad objectives, and the details are left for them to figure out on their own. As such, commanders have access to more personnel and equipment, and can use them in whatever ways they see fit. While within the Rebel Militia’s area of influence, Commanders have access to an expert technician with the Tech Specialist feat and Starship Designer feat (mechanics +17), and do not pay licensing fees for licensed, restricted, or military equipment. Commanders also only pay what the Tech Specialist would pay for any of his modifications (they don’t pay any additional fees normally associated with hiring a Tech Specialist to perform a modification for them).
31 or higher – General: Among the highest ranking members of the organization, Generals make decisions that affect the Rebel Militia as a whole. They are responsible for the continued existence and efficiency of the organization. Once per encounter, as a swift action, a General can grant a number of allies equal to his Charisma modifier (minimum 1) the Rapport feat for the duration of the encounter. All such allies must be within the General’s line of sight to receive this benefit, though they need not remain within line of sight to retain this benefit.
