After Nick's Imperium forces attacked and captured the Alliance base he interrogated the prisoners to find out more about this strange new planet that was so rich in resources. It turns out the Alliance is fleeing from another faction they simply call the "Galactic Empire". They've told us of a vast Empire, well equipped and adept in the ways of war. Constantly expanding and conquering new planets and galaxies. The Alliance is on this planet looking for a suitable base but they still do not know too much about it. They've described the native inhabitants as humanoid, not unlike themselves, but very primitive in technology and weaponry. The Alliance officer leads Nicks patrols to a small native settlement that they have already explored.
Nick and a Terminator are left stunned in the intersection.
Nick wanted another episode in his planet explorations series. Well, he got it. This behemoth game actually only took us about 2.5 hours. Keep in mind though that we are very serious Chain Reaction fanatics and know the system well enough to play while sleeping. Even so, the last 15 minutes or so I could tell that the boys were getting fatigued fast. I wouldn't recommend anyone try a game with this many figures unless you really, really, REALLY know the game system well!
A side note. We had the question come up while playing whether Xenos would attack Zeds or not. Our Xenos are heavily patterned after the Aliens from movie fame and they seem to only care about reproduction. What do you guys think? Would the Xenos attack or ignore the Zeds? For today, I asked LTL Mom and she decided they would attack first and sort things out later so we went with that.
P.S. Just wait until Vader hears about this!
