“No game of dejarik can be won without pawns...”

Round 5: The Galactic Alliance of Free Imperiums vs The Phantom Hegemony

Welcome to the fifth and final round of Battlegrounds Heats. Where instead of the entire galaxy, combatants will compete in planetary arena, where every soldier, stronghold and ship counts.

For all those of you aren’t aware, the Kaggath is an ancient rite of the Sith, ‘one part duel, one part large-scale dejarik-match’. The two combatants have full use of their power bases, be it armies, strongholds or fleets, in order to outwit and outmanoeuvre their opponent. But the Kaggath is no simple lightsaber duel, although it can come down to one, and the arena can be anywhere: a planet, star system or the entire galaxy.

Before we begin, let’s go over the ground rules:

  • The arena: Ord Mantell – see the faction rundowns for BOEs.
  • #1 The Kaggath is won or lost when the leader of either faction is killed.
  • #2 No outside help of any kind, the combatants cannot call upon assets outside their power base or influence.
  • #3 No outside involvement, other powers will not and cannot interrupt or affect the battle, for the purpose of argument they are non-existent.
  • #4 No surrender, fight to the death!
  • #5 Apathy is death. Factions are not allowed to hide or wait. They must act.
  • #6 Technology level is universal (unless considered archaic or advanced at the time): blaster fire, armouring, lightsabers etc. are all the same regardless of period, all that matters is size, quantity and power.
  • #7 Factions are autonomous – players have no control over their faction’s decisions, this is instead determined by the nature of their leadership.

Read the full rulebook here.

So, the combatants: Forged from the flames of war and hatred, Karadron’s Galactic Alliance has united Empire and Alliance alike under a single flag, dedicated to spreading peace and justice throughout the galaxy they have come to Ord Mantell to cleanse the world of darkness and corruption. And in their way stand my very own Phantom Hegemony, a shadowy organisation helmed by Vader’s dark apprentice, they seek to induct another world into their fold as they seek to build a new Empire.

Behold the factions!
