Rebel Squadrons Newsbrief #4 (03/29/17)

Republic Shield Takes Space above Lithra, but Sustains Heavy Losses
Greeop Sector News Agency
Primeday | 50:06:06

Major engagements above Lithra have ceased and Task Force Republic Shield (RS) has declared an end to major hostilities in the space theater of operations above Lithra. While mop-up duty continues, Titan Fleet’s 5,000 meter Star Dreadnought, the Desolator, lays in ruin, its devastating weapons array no longer able to wreak havoc upon enemies. Victory was equally costly for the RS, with the allied fleet sustaining heavy losses during the operation. The Allied Star Destroyers Defiance, Devastator, and Midnight and the Fleet Carrier Seraphim have all been lost along with further cruiser, frigate, and gunship elements. The Star Destroyer Redemption landed the killing blow on the Desolator but herself suffered major damage during the engagement that will necessitate large-scale repairs before her next operation.

While the Space above Lithra has fallen to the RS, the planet itself remains heavily defended and Titan army forces appear prepared to repel the impending attack. Repair tugs and resupply ships have been busily moving about the fleet to re-equip the task force for the next battle, and troop ships and ground assault forces are now moving into the operational theater to begin the planetary assault. However, the hobbled fleet, though victorious, is currently weakened and vulnerable to counterattack. Between the well-defended planet and possible counter-operations by Titan, the RS leadership hopes to avoid a protracted ground battle and the potential of being caught between a rock and a hard place if the planetary assault bogs down and Titan counterattacks the fleet during the invasion.

Two Lost in Recon Mission
Greeop Sector News Agency
Zhellday | 50:06:04

Two Task Force Republic Shield pilots are missing and presumed dead after a recon mission yesterday in support of the ongoing conflict again the Imperial Remnant Titan Fleet. The pilots were shot down during operations to gather intelligence for coming Republic Shield (RS) operations. A spokesman for the RS headquarters on Greeop confirmed that two pilots were indeed lost during the engagement but praised the pilots for their sacrifice and indicated that the data acquired from the recon mission would prove invaluable in the coming weeks as the RS forces move to counter Titan.
However, anonymous sources indicate that the pilots lost in the engagement are none other than Lucas Benoit-Stark and Cody Qel-Droma, both of the famed Resurrection Squadron. While these sources would not confirm the full parameters of the recon mission, additional reports yesterday from the Imperial Titan News Agency (TNA) revealed that a small complement of rebel fighters suffered multiple casualties while conducting a probe of Lithra’s defenses. While a concrete link between the two instances has yet to emerge, there appears a high probability that Qel-Droma and Benoit-Stark were at least two of the pilots lost over Lithra in this TNA-reported engagement.
The demise of both Qel-Droma and Benoit-Stark would be a major blow to an RS that already finds itself with its back to the wall. A rising dearth of quality RS pilots and soldiers and declining morale from the loss of its aces will not help to reverse this current status quo.

Academy News: This session saw no changes with the Academy. We had no graduations and no new recruits

Squadron News: Overall, there wasn’t much to report with the short session.

Resurrection Squadron: According to their CO, GEN Eric Skrevski, Rza will be starting a squad fiction. Subject unknown at this time.

Diamond Squadron: Short session caused a lot of unmotivated members. They’re looking forward to that changing with the resumption of the RS campaign against Titan.

Red Dagger Squadron: Waiting for the next move against Titan. Most of the unit kept their powder dry.

As this was a short, placeholder session, and with the authorization of the FC, the standard AWOL rules were suspended until the end of the March/April session.

IV. Mission Briefing - Phoenix Rising - The Battle of Lithra

Primary Conference Room, Imperial I-class Star Destroyer Redemption, 1 hour before the Invasion of Lithra

Admiral Kaz Falcion, commander of the mighty Redemption Fleet, sat down at the large conference table, alone. He’d just arrived back on the Redemption after finishing a briefing with the various commanders of the huge combined fleet that was being dispatched to liberate Lithra. Several items weighed heavily on his mind, while the briefing had instilled him with confidence that their attack plan would give them a fighting chance; it was the aftermath of the battle that he was concerned with. The self-branded ‘Lithran Resistance’ on the planet was proving to be bigger problems than they were assets. In exchange for their help, which admittedly was paramount to the overall liberation of the planet, they were demanding that their leaders be given important positions in the reformed government; to the point that they would have majority control of the day to day operations, and could foil the Rebel Squadrons’ plans to integrate the world back into their fold. Worse s till, it seemed like their allies had acquiesced to the Resistance’s demands; virtually handing the world over.

Kaz wasn’t about to tolerate that.

Reaching out to his control console, he locked the conference room door, and disabled the recording devices and cameras which usually kept track of everything that happened in the room for record. When he was satisfied, Kaz tapped in a COMM frequency which he’d memorized years ago, but only seldom used. After several minutes of waiting, a shimmering blue hologram of Director Cody Qel-Droma, the commander of the Rebel Squadrons’ special forces division, appeared in front of him.

“Cody,” Kaz said with a nod, before dispensing with the pleasantries and getting to business. “How much do you know about the Lithran Resistance?”

“Terrorists, most of them, but effective. They’ve been assisting the ABG since the start of the liberation effort. Led by a council of seven. Leader’s fairly enigmatic, goes by the name Darrik. Financed by several ABG members, they’ve got modern tech, vehicles, training, a lot of explosives, and the will to use them. Why?”

“They’re a problem.” Kaz responded, and transmitted a datafile that he’d been provided by Director Hawkins, head of their intelligence division over to Cody. “Based on the briefing we just had, it looks like the Resistance isn’t going to play nice once the invasion is over. That could cause quite a few problems for us, and the Republic as a whole. We’re about an hour from jumping to hyperspace and setting this thing off, and we need to make sure the Resistance is going to play nice once we’re done. I’ve sent you what intel we have on the Resistance leaders.”

Cody’s hologram nodded, and several light years away on the Liberator-class cruiser Zealot, he quickly looked over the data.

“It’ll be close, but I can get my guys in.” He said, already tapping commands into his own console to get the Zealot moving ahead of the combined fleet. “What are you thinking?”

“Assassinate and supplant.” Kaz said simply, they needed to thin the Lithran Resistance leadership, and get someone more malleable into place; otherwise all of this would be for nothing.

“Fine,” Cody said without hesitation, “After that debacle with the dam, and the school, they’ve got it coming.” He was referencing the Resistance’s bombing of two locations, one to destroy a garrison which also took out a small town, and the other to kill a Titan General, which killed dozens of school children.

“Bonus points if you can make it look like they were taken out internally or by Titan. Either way it can’t be traced to us.”

“Understood,” Cody said, “We’ll get moving immediately.”

“Good luck,” Kaz responded, before cutting the COMM feed to a nod by his counterpart. He sat there silent for a few moments before reinitializing the recording devices and resetting everything. Standing, he walked out of the briefing room and into the bridge of the Redemption, looking at the flurry of activity going on in preparation. He walked to the front viewports, and looked out across the dozens of ships surrounding his own, all poised in the same direction awaiting orders. Hundreds of hyperspace capable fighters swarmed like bees around their command vessels, and several support ships had been launched already to be ready for the first moments of the battle.

“Tactical, charge all weapon arrays and get the shields on standby. Comms, signal all vessels to prepare for hyperspace.” He paused for a moment, and drew in a breath.

“Helm. Set your course for Lithra…”

X-Wing Alliance



While a portion of our fleet performs a strong-arm smash on the core-side of Lithra in order to punch a hole to land ground commandos, we're simultaneously going in with a smaller force to hit the back-side of the planet with a surgical strike in an attempt to commandeer one of the orbital defense platforms. There's a Golan 2 that seems to be lightly defended, and we think a small raiding party should be able to take it. Fighter wings will fly cover for the assault shuttles, but be careful as you'll have no capital ship support!

Questions about Resistance Motives #2
Citizens for a United Lithra Holoblog
Taungsday | 50:06:02

This is Tegan again. So I got my hands on that horrific footage of that Titan officer torturing innocent Lithran civilians during an interrogation. It’s brutal. I’m placing it here in hopes that others see it before it’s pulled. I found something in it that I can’t quite shake from my mind, so I went in with some editing software and cleaned up the holovid to see if I could make more sense of it. Take a look at the results below.

Doesn’t the officer look like former representative and current Lithran Resistance leader Bentham Dixxon? The resemblance is uncanny to me, but I also tried to geotrack the location based on what I saw outside of the prison window. It doesn’t look like any known Titan prison, but the Etrill mountain range. Isn’t that where Dixxon operates? What the hell is going on here? Is the Resistance torturing innocent people? I’m having serious doubts about what we’re doing here…

Terrorist Killed in Predawn Raid
Titan News Agency | Lithra
Taungsday | 50:06:02

After an anonymous tip, Titan army forces in collaboration with Frasberg city authorities stormed the compound of Lithran terrorist and bombmaker Tegan Lafoy. The terror agent resisted apprehension and took civilian hostages but was killed by brave Titan special operations forces before she could take innocent lives. Our gratitude goes out to all those Titan forces keeping Lithra safe from these extremists.

Taking the Fight to the Enemy This Week:

• Star Wars: Simming. Republic Shield’s Allegiance Battle Group is finally ready to take the fight to Titan and reclaim Lithra. With over one-third of Titan’s remaining shipyards at stake, the coming battle could turn the tide of war. The invasion begins February 27 at 2:00 pm EST in the #ABG_SIM on IRC’s Dalnet.

• Star Wars: X-Wing Alliance. Our pilots are obsessed with the recent holofilm recounting the exploits of famed Rebel fighter Jyn Erso and her Rogue compatriots. As such, we’ve loaded the Battle of Scarif into the starfighter sims. Find it here: http://www.rebelsquadrons.org/itod/tour?id=154


• Star Wars: Empire at War. Our ground pounders have been no less enthralled. Relive the raid on the Scarif archives that helped the Rebel Alliance destroy the first Deathstar here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4lIItC_-gRyZEVVUTVNRlE0NjQ

A New Hope for Task Force Republic Shield
Greeop Sector News Agency
Centaxda | 50:06:01

After months of space trials in and around the Sluis Van Shipyards, the MC90 Star Cruiser Windstorm II took to space to join Task Force Republic Shield (i.e., the Rebel Squadrons). Hopes weight heavily on the Windstorm, a replacement for the recently destroyed MC80a of the same name, lost in an ambush by Imperial Remnant forces. The ship will relieve and reinforce the front lines in the current conflict against the Imperial Remnant Titan Fleet that has to-date decimated Republic Shield forces. This New Republic Defense Force subfleet, responsible for defense along the Rimma Trade Route between Kal’Shebbol and Sluis Van, has been hard-pressed to take the fight to Titan. Though Republic Shield–controlled space remains capable against direct assault, anonymous commanders indicated that current sector defense capabilities are perhaps under-strength for the amount of space in need of defense.

A dearth of resources aside, the Windstorm joined the main fleet on Centaxday, escorted by the famed Resurrection and Diamond Squadrons. Morale was buoyed by the fleet’s new ship of the line, and Republic Shield forces indicated that they were ready to turn the tide. Lounging next to an A-Wing later that day in the Windstorm’s hangar, one anonymous squadron pilot stated, “we’ve always been under-supported and outgunned, and we’ve always come through. This won’t be different.” Whether the pilot spoke from hubris or from experience remains to be seen.

Taking the Fight to the Enemy This Week:

1) Interactive Fiction Writing (RS Forums). Rumor has it that Zealot Special Operations force has been recommissioned to help in the fight against Titan. This month has seen the introduction of Zealots new and old on the forums (http://www.rebelsquadrons.org/forums/viewtopic.php?p=26296). Read the Zealot posting rules on the wiki (http://wiki.rebelsquadrons.org/index.php?title=Zealot), and introduce your character before the force’s first operation kicks off next month.

2) Star Wars: Force Area (Mobile). On the ground on Exren, Rebel Squadrons have been slogging it out in close combat. Join the fight by downloading Star Wars: Force Arena for your mobile device (http://www.starwarsforcearena.com/en). Upon reaching Level 3, search for “RebelSquadrons” and join our guild. We are also often teaming up and discussing strategy on our Discord (https://discordapp.com/invite/0vPv7dJ1NL2hPr8m).

3) Star Wars: X-wing vs. Tie Fighter (PC). Our starfighter pilots will be integral to our success in coming battles. Due to our lack of resources, you may often find yourself fighting in sub-squadron level wings. Find your best XvT wingman and register at battlestats (http://www.battlestats.com/events/tourny/?5222)for the X-Wing Vs TIE Fighter 20th Anniversary 2v2 Tournament. The tournament will run from March 25–26. Success with your wingmen will resonate in the larger war.

Hammerfall: Operation The Lithran Offensive Mission Briefing (March-April 2016 Activities)

Join the Rebel Squadrons: http://rebelsquadrons.org/join/

By ADM Cyrel Vandroth
Unit: The Rebel Squadrons
--, Mar 17, 2016
Tour: Hammerfall
Operation: The Lithran Offensive
Operation Start Date: March 1st, 2016
Operation End Date: April 30th, 2016

Welcome back soldiers, we got smacked around a bit last session but we have a new list of objectives to help push the tide back. See your individual reports for more details.

How to Use the New Activities System


The Rebel Squadrons has launched a new Activities hub! To use it, head over to Activities on the left nav bar, or follow this direct link: http://www.rebelsquadrons.org/activities/

Our operations focus around Objectives for each activity, as we have done for quite some time, but now you should use the new Activities system to report instead of the ITOD system.
Look under “My Activities”, find the activity (game) you’re looking for, and click on an objective listed next to it, e.g. “The Lithran Offensive (Battlefront)
Read the briefing and instructions, complete the activity, and obtain the required proof (screenshot, link to MP report, forum post, etc.)
Click “Report on this objective” to access the new reporter.
Any comments and web links should go into the “Comments” box. Put web links each on their own line.
Attach any files (screenshots, pilot files, etc.) using “Add new file”.


If you’d like to update a report later, follow the same steps as above, except click “Update report on this objective” once you reach the objective page. You can withdraw reports from that page as well.

If you run into a site bug, you can note it on the Internet Office website at: http://io.rebelsquadrons.org/showcalls


Objective 1: Legacy Gaming - X-wing Alliance



Alright folks, this has been a long time in the planning but it looks like the time is right for us to finally make a move to take the Lithran orbital shipyards! It doesn't look like the Imperials are expecting us back so soon after our hit and fade on their sensor array, nor do we believe that they are suspecting us to try to capture the shipyards instead of just destroy them. To help maintain the secrecy of that objective, we'll be going with complete radio silence once we jump in system, so pay close attention to your assigned roles!

To make sure we hit as hard as we can, we'll be going all-in with the Redemption's task force. All starships and starfighters will jump into the Lithran system together. Try to stay grouped up with the captial ships and cover each other while we sweep through the first line of defenses.

Once the outer defenses are down, the main force will continue straight on to engage the inner defenses and any capital ships in the area, and the assault Corvettes will begin driving for their assigned shipyards in order to capture them. Pilots, you'll need to split your attention between any remaining fighters, protecting the Corvettes, and assisting in harrying the imperial defenses.

Hopefully we'll be able to have them battered down enough that they won't be able to turn any fire on the shipyards once they figure out that we're capturing them!

Objective Instructions: Submit your report to http://www.rebelsquadrons.org/itod/mission?id=1166 as well as here. This double-report is temporary while we work on the new system.

Submit screenshots or links as appropriate for each objective listed below.

Point Distribution:
1 Point for successfully completing the mission in a B-Wing
1 Point for successfully completing the mission in an X-Wing
1 Point for submitting to me feedback on the mission, specifically what version and mods your running (vanilla, Darksaber, etc.) and how you feel the balance is. I build and test all my mission with the DSUCP, but I'm worried that the balance is quite different than vanilla, which is why I'm after this feedback in case I need to tweak things in future missions accordingly. Thanks!


Link to Objective: http://www.rebelsquadrons.org/activities/objective?id=9

Task Force Leader: MAJ CrazyCarl


Objective 2: Legacy Gaming - EaW



Hyper in with the Redemption task force, engage any imperial defenses in the area, and attempt to capture the shipyards intact.

Objective Instructions: Submit screenshots or comments to this reporter fulfilling each of the tasks below.

Point Distribution:
1 point for playing the mission
1 point for winning (with a captured shipyard)
1 point for sending me any feedback on what you thought of the mission.



Link to objective: http://www.rebelsquadrons.org/activities/objective?id=18

Task Force Leader: MAJ CrazyCarl


Objective 3: Modern Gaming - X-wing Miniatures



Briefing: Nothing special here, pilots, but it’s all the same just as critical. You’ll be flying regularly scheduled combat patrols along our frontlines, focused along possible Imperial patrol lines near and at the Lithra System. Engage and destroy any Imperial forces you encounter.

Objective Instructions: Play Minis! Instructions on how to set up Vassal, the software we use to emulate the game, can be found here: (http://wiki.rebelsquadrons.org/index.php?title=X-Wing_Miniatures#Setting_up ). Once you’re up and running, stop by our DALNet channel #rs_bar_and_grill and ask if anyone wants to play a game or post on the forums to arrange a match with someone. Follow the instructions in the wiki article to load up Vassal and join a game.

Play matches and submit them as activity via the Generic Reporter (http://www.rebelsquadrons.org/multiplayer/report_mp.php ). Matches involving at least 100 points matches (or higher if you want to involve capships/epic scale battles) are valid for completing this objective.

Once you have accumulated three matches (or however many you can for the operation), use the mission reporter link (http://www.rebelsquadrons.org/activities/objective?id=10 , select ‘report on this actvity’) to create a mission report for this objective. Include in the comments section links to each of your activity reports (found here via clicking ‘Leaderboards’, ‘Multiplayer Hub’, then under ‘Full Match Listings’ select ‘X-wing Minatures’ and find your report.

Objective 4: Modern Gaming - Uprising



The Uprising has slowed, but has not been entirely beaten back. Our contacts on the other side of the blockade can not provide much-needed resources or intel if none of our own officers attend to collect.

Objective Instructions: Submit screenshots or links to this reporter as appropriate for each objective.

Point Distribution:
Log in at least once a week (TFL Forerunner will personally monitor the login frequencies through the Cartel menu, so you don't have to worry about keeping track of yourself).
Reach Level 40 (if above, reach Level 60, and if above that, max out at Level 85...And if you've already maxed out as of March 1, you get a free point!)
Play 1 co-op mission, and be sure to send in a screenshot. Alternatively (be it because of introversion or scheduling problems), participate in one Sector Battle and rank at a minimum level of Lieutenant (also with screenshot). Either would count, but you can not get double points by doing both.

Greetings Rebel Squadrons,

First, let me take a moment to apologize for the delay in getting this out. I’m just getting settled into my office as the Operations Officer. Look for this to come out sooner, next time. Without further adieu, the session has ended and the results are in. Here is what we’re looking at.

Section 1: Announcements
Executive Personnel:
Effective earlier this session, MGN Nicolai Ginovaef has stepped down after excellent service as the Operations Officer. MGN Markus Jarnhann has assumed responsibilities.

Games:
XWA- CrazyCarl and I have been discussing the creation of a weekly time-slot for multiplayer activity here. Contact him if interested.

TOR- As I understand it, things are heating up some over here. Ray has let me know that the TOR guild is looking to get more involved with conflicts. I don’t know what that’s all about, but it sounds like a good time! If you’re interested, give her a shout. Let’s get a strong showing over there.

D6 RPG: Activity has been high here, and the Sentinel simming group has had numerous sims running each week. If you are looking for a good time, and to get involved, come see us on the IRC at #allegiance - one of our friendly GMs will be happy to help you get a character set up.

Star Wars Commander: Vice Admiral Gavin Kravis is stepping down as the Star Wars Commander platform coordinator. Please email me at blackknight6464@gmail.com if interested.
===========

Section 2: Winners, Promotions, and Medals:

Now for the winners, both squadron and individual:

Resurrection Squadron came out as the Top Squadron this session, with all seven members reporting for a total of 1411.8 points. RZA was far and away the front runner this session, with the Academy being a distant second at 436.5 points, and Red Dragon Squadron reporting 337.8 total points. Bringing up the rear was red Squadron with 30.6, and two members reporting. I know you can do better, Red- I’ve seen it. Get after it!

The ITOD Top Gun goes to CMDR Jay Forerunner for his accomplishments during Operation Hammerfall: Sons of Lithra. The spreadsheet for the objectives for this session can be found here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1VyLQ-6VfPWssRyCoG_Onb754JVpI3ftW_teKSYhmOog/edit?usp=sharing

That said, there was good effort by a number of members to achieve the objectives we outlaid last session. Raven gave Jay a hell of a run on this one.

The RS Activity Top Gun goes to Fleet Admiral Michael Raven for scoring 402.4 activity points this session. Our estimable Fleet Admiral, Cyrel Vandroth, came in second with 314.3 points, and there were a number of players over the two hundred mark. Good showing to everyone who participated and reported this session!

Medals:

The following individuals have been awarded medals for this session:

CDT X-Wing Phantom has been awarded a Merit Commendation for the following:

“For his outstanding efforts in the recent month long world of tanks campaign. He did a fantastic job and acquitted himself well against some semi-professional/professional teams.” Congrats, X-Wing Phantom!

VA Gavin Kravis has been awarded the 18-Year Service Medal, as he has been a member since February of 1998. That is an incredible longevity with the club. Congrats, Gavin!

BGN Mat Bizegar has been awarded the 7-Year Service Medal for seven years in the RS. Congrats, Bizegar!

Promotions:

Major Koah, front and center! For your contributions to the RPG simming group, your Squadron Leader has recommended you to be promoted to the rank of Lieutenant Commander. Congratulations!

Second Lieutenant Rogos Ieriden, front and center! For your contributions to the RS at large, your Squadron Leader has recommended you be promoted to the rank of First Lieutenant. Congratulations!


================


Section 3: Closing Remarks

All, as we go forward, let’s try to recapture some of the magic. Last month was a slow session, but we’ve got some big things in store. And if you have any ideas that you would like to bring to the table as far as games to play, events to coordinate, or improvements you’d like to see or make with the club, please by all means feel free to write me an email at blackknight6464@gmail.com or poke me on the club IRC.

Thank you for your time, and see you all on the battlefield.

Regards,

MGN Markus Jarnhann, Operations Officer
