Getting ideas for new scenarios can often come from pop culture, history, or simply be inspired by a special piece of terrain, or other unique models.

Forgeworld had released their Imperial Moisture Condenser terrain piece, and that got the ball rolling…

Initially I had only a single Moisture Consdensor in my collection, but as time went on the idea of writing a scenario featuring these models was too compelling to ignore – so I got four more of them!  When writing this scenario we couldn’t resist theming it around a Moisture farm as first imagined in Star Wars Episode IV…

To keep on this theme, we opted to add in two Servitors… a tall golden one and a short blue one.  Mike found a couple of ancient servitor models, the short one, was originally a squat servitor.   With Mike’s customary great paint job, these models now became a fixture in the scenario.  We also went and built a main building for our moisture farm, and along with a few hills these made for a real immersive table.

While the scenario itself is relatively simple, we’ve given players a thematic mission to play, which is sure to be memorable, even if it is a bit tongue-in-cheek.

A new concept we added to this mission was that of ‘Optional’ mission special rules.   Using the servitors and their special rules in the mission is something that the players decide on before the game.   The Servitors add a fun dynamic, but are non-essential to the game itself, so we opted to give the players the choice if they wanted to incorporate them into their game or not!

The Vaporize scenario was featured at this year’s Toronto event and is available for free download here.   Enjoy!
