its members. Once the morale falls to 5 or below, the player must roll

incident on Gortrak IV - a Star Wars Skirmish Game
the acquisition of some Micromachines Star Wars figures, we decided to
put up a quick skirmish game using a simple set of rules cobbled
together from some existing sets we own. The limited number and type
of figures meant an 'unhistorical' scenario would be played...
game area we used was 2' x 2'. An Imperial shuttle (scratch-built from
a water-pistol) is placed in the middle of the board in the clearing.
Random clumps of lichen and trees are then placed around the board.
Vader and his squad start hidden, and are placed next to the shuttle
(counting as being in cover) when they reveal themselves (player does
not need to reveal all figures in the squad at the same time).
Rebel entry area is from any of the corners of the board; Imperial
reinforcements will enter from the opposite corner.
from Turn 3, the Gamemaster rolls a d6 to determine if the
Stormtroopers arrive. On a roll of 6, they enter during the Imperial
activation. On Turn 4 they enter on a 5 or 6, and on Turn 6 a 4,5, or
6, and so on.
Leela and her squad enter the Turn after Darth Vader reveals himself, or after the Imperial reinforcements arrive, whichever happens first. The player playing Leela's squad should be given the briefing only on the turn they will enter the game.
the flame of the rebellion spreads, the forest planet of Gortrak IV
becomes a battleground between the forces of the Empire and the Rebel
has 2 'free' wounds.
Battle Droid is armed with two Heavy Blasters. Roll 1d6 per Blaster
firing - this is the number of shots it may fire this action. On a
roll of 1, however, the Blaster is jammed and will take 1 action to
unjam. The Droid has no wounds but has a special damage system.
the Droid is 'wounded', roll 1d6 to determine where it is hit:
head hit will cause the Droid to run amok. During each activation
first roll to determine which direction the Droid will move and move
it to its maximum allowance; the Droid will then fire at the nearest
target in its next action. A second head hit puts the Droid out of
leg hit will reduce the Droid's movement allowance by half. A second
leg hit renders the Droid immobile.
arm hit will destroy the Droid's Blaster (roll to see which arm is
affected). A second hit on the same arm has no effect.
torso hit has the same effect as a 'standard' wound. If the Droid is
also amok, roll to see whether it will move or shot during its
activation. A second torso hit puts the Droid out of Action.
