Every once in a while, opportunity knocks to do something unexpected and just plain fun. Just such an opportunity came to Nathan P. Butler of Star Wars Beyond the Films and The Star Wars Report’s Rebels Roundtable back in early September. On the suggestion of fellow Star Wars fan (and Fantasy Flight Games writer) Keith Kappel, prolific Star Wars author John Jackson Miller reached out to Nathan with an idea in mind. He wanted to create a special, unofficial X-wing Miniatures Game scenario that would recreate much of the atmosphere of a space chase over Cynda in his recently-released novel A New Dawn.

After a quick-but-intense session of brainstorming, the scenario’s general concept was determined, and Nathan put together the scenario. After a few tweaks from John, it was ready for play. The scenario, Dying is Never a Plan, debuted at Galaxy Comics & Games in Stevens Point, Wisconsin on October 18, 2014, unintentionally making it a nice way for Nathan to celebrate his birthday and the 17th anniversary of his Star Wars Timeline Project that both arrived a day earlier.

Now that the scenario has been played in public, we wanted to share it with you, our readers and listeners, so that you can give it a try the next time you are in the mood for a “mission” style game of X-wing to break up the usual straight-up dogfighting.

We hope you enjoy it.
