With an exceptional group of players and DMs, all level 13 to 15.

Despite my plus 16 Will save and re roll, I still got Quickened Persistent Feeble Minded (and therefore useless) in round two of the first fight.

My peace loving Venture Captain Art was forced into Flame strike war in the opening combat.

Awesome.

Of course the flaw with all this is that the entirety of that was tossed out with the bathwater when they eradicated everything in the EU cannon except for Clone Wars and the 6 movies.

But I have read Tarkin which is Canon, nothing major or significant in the book contradicts The Imperial Sourcebook, in fact builds upon it.

I am betting the author mined The Imperial Sourcebook, or notes taken from it on Wookiepedia as reference.

Further, because of Star Wars Rebels, the ISB and The Inquisitorius (again first seen in The Imperial Sourcebook) are considered Canon once again.

In Tarkin, Palpatine creates the Grand Moff title specifically for Tarkin. Moffs were system or multi-system governors, who were, for all intents and purposes, their own miniature Emperors. They answered to what appeared to be a pretty small council (small is relative when Vader is in the room next to Palpatine), but Tarkin, in his role as Moff of the outer rim systems he controlled, didn't seem to have supreme control of the military. The feeling I got reading was that his rank was a formal administrative rank, and not an *actual* military engagement, especially since he rose to that position through the bureaucracy. Until the Grand Moff installation at the end, in which he was given complete control over every aspect of the Death Star's creation, construction, and operation, answering only to Palpatine himself.

Actually, again in 1988, West End Games, did note in The Imperial Sourcebook, (pdf link for those interested) that Emperor Palpatine did in fact elevate Moff Tarkin to Grand Moff after the later presented The Emperor with the concepts that would later become known as The Tarkin Doctrine.

Moffs and Grand Moffs DID have command and control over the military units within their own Sectors. In practice though a Moff did not have direct jurisdiction over the Imperial forces in the neighboring Sector.

The creation of Gand Moffs and Priority Over Sectors erased this flaw in the Imperial chain of command.

I still think there is a chance this new Imperial Hero could be very well be the Imperial Security Bureau Director.

This is rather telling, ISB Commander Alecia Beck in an animated comic based on the Smuggler’s Run junior novel which IS Canon wears a very similar uniform.

I think the people behind Star Wars continuity are keeping a tighter reign over all the Star Wars licenses.

Knowing absolutely nothing about Star Wars Imperial chains of command this seems to me to be a nonsensical question. Does a US Governor outrank a 5-Star General?

Actually therein lays the reason for many early successes of the Rebellion.

A small rebel group could commit acts of sabotage and treason in one Sector, and then hyper space jump a few Sectors over.

In doing so, an Imperial officer's forces from one Sector could not follow the fleeing rebels to the Sector they jumped to without getting permission from that Sector's Moff. Think of it as crossing state lines in the US, or international boundaries around the world.

All these powerful Moffs, men of high egos and pride of course would never easily grant such permission, in effect relying on their own resources to track down the fleeing rebels. In this manner the rebels would move Sector to Sector before the Imperials could close the gap, exploiting Imperial "red tape."

Then Moff Tarkin proposed (in what was later named The Tarkin Doctrine)what would be known as Priority Over Sectors, where Imperial units from one Sector could continue pursuit of fleeing rebels without fear of reprisal from another Sector. For this, and other recommendations in The Tarkin Doctrine (Rule of Fear), Moff Tarkin was the first christened Grand Moff.

MeanDM wrote:

Baron, does that mean that a Grand Moff outranks a Grand Admiral, because while they have the same number of squares, a Moff has ones that indicate ranks in administrative and operational command in addition to military command?

How did you handle it at WEG?

That's exactly how we envisioned it. Later EU sort of muddled it up.

Here were the distinctions.

A minor planet or system, say Tatooine, would have a planetary Prefect. Prefects answered to their System's Governor.

A more important System or one that was deemed useful to The Empire, such as Bakura, would have an Imperial Governor, and several planets, man made space stations and territories in the System would fall under the System Governor's jurisdiction. No matter how powerful a Governor was, he would still answer to the Sector's Moff.

A Moff governed an entire Sector, a very large region of space, and several Systems in the Sector were under his direct influence. The Moff may chose to personally take on the role of a Governor of favored planet as well, in essence making the planet the capital of that Sector.

In most cases a Moff was given titular military ranks of Surface Marshal and High Admiral, granting him command of all military forces in his own Sector, also known as the Sector Group, including 24 Imperial Class Star Destroyers. A Moff could command, appoint and promote members of the military up to the ranks of Admiral and General.

A Moff in turn answered to an Imperial Advisor, or if the Moff was in charge of a key strategic Sector, the Imperial Inner Circle. Later on, as the Rebellion grew, and Priority and Over Sectors were created to extinguish the spark of Rebellion, Moffs would answer to Grand Moffs.

Grand Moffs, of which The Grand Moff Tarkin (of Over Sector Outer) was the first to be elevated to that position, reported directly and solely to The Emperor.

Grand Moffs had three (and in the case of Grand Moff Tarkin, four) full Sector Groups under their direct command, in addition to all the other forces in their Over Sector. This would include many hundreds of Naval vessels, and millions of ground forces, and an even larger civilian bureaucracy.

Grand Admirals and Grand Marshals/Generals, a later addition, were military ranks somewhere above a Moff but under a Grand Moff, and were given special or roving commands, not necessarily fixed to any one Region or Sector.

I am boarding a flight, so more posts later.

I had floated a personal theory last week on some Star Wars boards that originally did not get any traction in fact hit a wall of opposition, but now seems to have raised some eyebrows and gained some backers.

What if this is not a Grand Admiral at all, but a high ranking Imperial Security Bureau officer (possibly even The Director of the ISB, who would be the analogue, contemporary, and direct political competing rival of Ysanne Isard in Imperial Intelligence).

What clued me into this?

In the first glimpse we see of the Imperial officer, he seems (at least to me) to be wearing black pants and black gloves. Grand Admirals have all white uniforms, including pants and gloves, whereas high ranking ISB officials we have seen from A New Hope wear off white tops and black pants and gloves.

The costume designers are clearly very aware of the Expanded Universe, and the devil Sith is in the detail.

This is a great evocative clip, I love that this image taken alone screams Star Wars.

I like this clip because it shows us enough to make us wonder about two things.

First the obvious, who is the cloaked figure in the foreground? Darth Vader? An Imperial Inquisitor? An Imperial Advisor? Perhaps someone who will one day become Snoke from Episode VII?

But the second image, the one blocked by the cloaked figure, and flanked by Royal Guards, what is there?

Some are saying a holographic image communications projector.

Me, I am inclined to think its a version/variation of a bacta tank similar to what we see Luke in on Hoth, or even a cryo stasis chamber, which lends to the image of Han in carbonite.

But then WHO IS IN THE TANK/CRYO CHAMBER?

Again it could be Darth Vader, healing from the wounds inflicted on him by Obi-Wan Kenobi in Revenge of the Sith. Perhaps The Emperor himself (although this I find less likely).

#MondayImperialMusings

I would like to mention something here that has been a point of contention I have tried to make for some 25 years now.

The Empire, with its near limitless resources drawn from the "thousand thousand systems" it governs and oversees, is first and foremost a political entity.

The Empire has the largest military The Galaxy has ever known, but The Emperor and his inner circle always ruled over the military arms of The Empire.

Over the years, some one the internets would indicate that a Grand Admiral holds a rank above a Grand Moff. I always cringed a little at that.

After over two and a half decades of EU cross banter, the Rogue One trailer lends me some Canon material to help my stand.

A Grand Moff's rank insignia bar, as seen on The Grand Moff Tarkin (First of his Name) shows twelve squares, (six blue, three red, three orange).

In the trailer, what may very well be a Grand Admiral's rank insignia clearly shows twelve squares (six blue, six red).

Here is the important distinction.

In Imperial hierarchical nomenclature, BLUE (sometimes indicative of military, field or combat command) is outranked by RED (sometimes indicative of administrative, operational or senior command), while ORANGE/Yellow outranks both (and is indicative of executive and POLITICAL command).

What is interesting is the Imperial officer in the video shows the same rank as Fleet Admirals Ozzel and Piet from The Empire Strikes Back, which is technically one step below that of Grand Admiral.

Also in the Grand Admiral image, there seems to be a silver blaster on his side as his personal side arm. Despite what the toy manufacturers have you believe, we almost never see a high ranking Imperial officer with side arms. I like that this one does, indicating he does not mind mixing it up a little, and gives him a General Patton esque vibe to him.
