WHAT'S THE FOURTH EPISODE ABOUT?
This episode introduce what I call the second part of the adventure path. In this module the players (or a reader who enjoy reading adventures as a source of inspiration and ideas) will change their characters. It means they act in the same context but in a different point of view. In the first part of the adventure path (episode 1,2 and 3) you roleplayed the members of the so called "Federation". The second part introduce your players to the fascist-like power known as the "Dominion". The Dominion is a coalition of humans, dwarves and dark elves and all the three races are from the same solar system. This adventure specifically, takes place on the remote planetoid known as Charon I, which orbit a red dwarf star known as Charon Prime. The outpost is registered as Outpost 49. Do you remember the last episode, "First Strike", where the PCs arrived to a Dominion's outpost to seize a powerful radio telescope? Well, that planet was Charon I. The former PCs successfully attacked and destroyed the garrison on the planet and completed their mission to send a warp signal to the Federation headquarter. However not all the garrisons were slaughtered. Some of them survived. The survivors are our new characters. They are well trained and loyal soldier's of the Dominion military might, but now they are alone on Charon I. They are aware that their comrades, all of them, are no more. You were patrolling the border in you light war tank, trying to repair a messy engine. you got stucked for hours while trying to repair the damage. You were lucky. Because if you weren't out there you would be death. You listen your comrades calling for help at the radio, powerless while they die one by one by the hand of what you assume to be a federation surprise attack. The slaves assigned at the mines take advantage of this attack to start a revolt and seize the mining facility. As a soldier of the Dominion you can't tolerate such acts. Quench the rebellion at the mines. Explore the radio telescope and discover more about the surprise attack. Reach the only ship available on the planet before the rebels do and join the fleet to warn the high command that the fragile truce has been broken.
SOME WORDS ABOUT THE CONTENT
Light War Tank and Battle Quad
This adventure put emphasis on vehicles and ground skirmish. The light war tank is a key element of this adventure, the PCs will need it to complete the mission and stay alive. If this were Pathfinder you'd be using horses, donkeys and chart. Well, a good party of adventurer need something to move quickly and safely. There come the tank.
"Excusso" L-R mortar, "Aquila" Long Range Rifle, "Pilum" Missile Launcher.
Dominion's arsenal is full of advanced devices, this includes weapons. To mantain its military might they produce special weapons hard to buy on the free market.
We present 3 new creatures (maybe more?) native of Charon I.
The "Equos" cargo ship, the only ship docked on the planet. A fast cargo made to deliver shipments quickly and safely through the danger of the void.
