HoSS Master Set

Heroes of Star Wars Scape (HoSS) Master Set: A New Hope


A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...




It is with great satisfaction and excitement (and relief) that we proudly present this Master Set to you! It was a lot of work, but we have enjoyed it. We think the content is awesome, and we hope you will think so too! We have worked hard to give this set a delicious Star Wars flavor that brings the events of the movie to life, and we are really happy with how everything has turned out! Han and Chewie make an amazing team; Obi-Wan does all he can to protect Luke and can sacrifice himself to aid Luke posthumously; Leia is an indispensable inspiration for her troops; and Darth Vader can walk through just about any army single-handedly! Sneak into Detention Block AA-23 with your Rebel Heroes...can you save the Princess? Or, try to survive a battle with the ferocious Tusken Raiders on their home turf in Beggar's Canyon. All this great stuff is here!


In this set we have included 1 Rulebook (download here), 15 Army ards, 1 Glyph Card, 9 Maps and three new Force Symbols. The Force Symbols appear on the Army Card of some characters, much like the Flying symbol used on many C3G cards. The Force Symbols allow us to give a basic set of Force powers to many Force wielding characters and still have room on the Army Card to add some powers that are specific to each characer. The three Force Symbols are:




We have also created 3 Factions: Rebel Alliance, Galactic Empire and Independent. More factions will be created in future releases.

Rebel Alliance
Princess Leia Organa
Luke Skywalker
Han Solo
Chewbacca
Obi-Wan Kenobi
R2-D2
C-3PO
Rebel Troopers


Galactic Empire
Darth Vader
Stromtroopers
Death Star Troopers
Imperial Officer


Independent
Greedo
Jawas
Tusken Raiders


The Glyph included in this Master Set is:
The Glyph of Moisture Vaporator


Many thanks to the map creators who entered our HoSS Map Contest! As promised, the winners' maps are featured in this Master Set alongside several maps of our own creation. Also, several of the maps in this set include fun scenario rules which allow you to reenact some of the scenes from Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. The maps are included in the manual and will also be made available for individual download.

Tantive IV
Judland Wastes
Beggar's Canyon
Moisture Farms
Mos Eisley Cantina
Detention Block AA-23
Death Star Hallways
Tractor Beam Sabotage
Yavin 4 Outpost


Each item listed above (Army Card, Glyph and Map) will have its own Holocron Thread (similar to the Classic "Book of ... Thread") where questions and strategies regarding that figure, map or glyph may be posted. A listing of the Holocrons for all released items can be found in the Archives of HoSS Thread.

As always, you can find the latest HoSS news in the HoloNet News Thread
Learn about the project in general in the Welcome to HoSS Thread
For questions about HoSS, try the HoSS Question Dump Thread
For other Star Wars related chatter, see the HoSS Cantina Thread.
To help us release the next wave, see the HoSS Public Playtesting Thread.
And to help out with HoSS map design, see Battlefields of Star Wars Scape (BoSS)

We think you'll enjoy this Master Set. Let us know what you think so that future releases will be even better!

Access to the figures seems to be wrong.

That's because they haven't been moved out of the sanctum yet. Balantai should be working on that now (we wanted to wait until we got up on the front page, like how C3G does).

You can go see Darth Vader's card in the rulebook while we get the cards into the Public.

We have actually discussed this in our sanctum. It is part of the reason all of the maps we will be releasing will have google doc files (I can't remember if they are all finished though...)
