Building a Rebel base

Building a Rebel base

Building a base takes time and is costly but is the safest bet when you wish to keep the base a secret. One could build a entire base in a secure location by excavating room for a base or use a natural cave system. Other ways to go about it is reusing old buildings that can even be right under the nose of the Imperial banner if one is careful enough.

Essential compoments of a base:

Living quarters

Living quarters are needed for the PC’s and other essential personel within a rebel base. Living quarters contains the basic with beds, refreshers, a mess hall, kitchen and storage. The living quarters can house dozens of people at the time.

This can be taken up to four times and each time it adds a minion group of five that can acompany the PC’s group.

Meeting room

Before and after rebel missions information is usually distributed in something called brefing and debrefing. A meeting room is specificly made for a large amount of personel on a base to be able to tend such a meeting and the room offers not only tools for the information to be more accessible for everyone. The room contains one large holo projector and the room is often shaped round to allow all eyes to be pointed to thr middle without creating distance between the speaker and the audiance.

This can only be picked once.

Increased Core Focus

The size and scope of the Rebel base grows, increasing the scale of operations. If the facility is a safe house, increase the number of rooms available within the facility. If it is focused upon research or training, then increase the number of workers and available technology. A facility devoted to maintaining weapons, vehicles, or other equipment could have its capacity similarly increased. Once per month, each PC can leverage the base’s new expanded resources when attempting to acquire a piece of equipment. For purposes of that check, the item’s rarity is decreased by 1 for each time this upgrade has been selected.

This upgrade may be taken up to four additional times.
