Natural Cover

Mark Gliesen hadn’t had a chance to draw his A281 before he dove into the bushes, but at least he had a line of sight on the troopers descending into the riverbed. As he watched them, his mind flashed to the corpse of the trooper he’d been trying to hide before and thanked the Rebellion […]

Strike Team Specialist

“What are you talking about?” Mark hissed. If Dale Barnes had heard him setting his own trap, there was no way the troopers had missed the Corporal’s high-pitched, nasal voice in otherwise quiet woods. Yet here he was, following the Corporal through the underbrush. “We’ve been monitoring this area for the past thirty minutes, and […]

Major Bren Derlin

In the moment before Major Bren Derlin’s voice came softly over his communicator, Mark heard the rustle again from the forest. “Repeat, Gliesen, it sounded like you said company.” Aisling was already halfway up the nearest tree, and Mark watched her hand signals as she indicated the approaching patrol. “Roger Major, seven scout troopers on […]

Leaked Message: Maarek Stele’s Future

Intercepted: Private message to Darth Vader from Emperor Palpatine Regarding: Maarek Stele’s Future I’m surprised it took you this long to sense it, Lord Vader.

Not only did […]

Worlds 2015 Day One Recap

What a day! After a few stressful incidents involving lost important items (I left my laptop at the Chipotle where we got lunch @_@), I managed to pull out a solid ninth-place finish, with the only record I could have managed and still made top sixteen. It was a blast and very interesting to see […]

Worlds 2015 Player Profiles

Johnny Shen Online Identity: No, I’m actually not online on any of the forums. Location: Houston, Texas Occupation: I’m in IT Playtest Team: I played on OCTGN a few times before this thing, but that’s about it. I get off too late to play at any of the game stores, so… I just moved there […]

He’s not going to do anything.” Mark Gliesen grimaced up at the young woman perched on the speeder bike across the clearing. “As much as you might not care, I’d rather not leave dead Imperials around as evidence.” The young rebel shrugged. “Whatever.” She reached into her poncho […]
