More about Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire:
When the players first enter the briefing room, you meet Captain Cassian Andor. He briefs you on his acquisition of an Imperial transport and gives you key details about a weapon of great power held by the Empire on their base on Mustafar.
From there you board an Imperial transport where you meet a pilot and “sassy robot” K-2SO, and the whole team speeds to Mustafar via hyperspace. The Imperial base does not sound happy to hear of your arrival. Consequently, they demand the ship land immediately to be inspected.
A hover platform docks with the ship and takes you to the main base. You enter a lift down into the base via a corridor which leads to a rack of blasters. The alarm sounds and K-2SO instructs players to pick up blasters because the Empire knows you’re here.
While you’re trapped outside the main base, Stormtroopers file out onto walkways to shoot at players. You defeat the Stormtroopers but in addition, monster insectoids emerge from the lava and spit fire at you. A giant insectoid appears and you must kill it, hence, K-2SO unlocks the door once the beast is dead.
Players move back into a corridor and K-2SO presents you with a memory puzzle whilst Stormtroopers shoot the players from behind. The players run down a corridor leading to a room with the weapons crate you need. The pilot opens the crate and finds a lightsaber with a fixed center.
The players then hear heavy breathing then a lightsaber flies across the room and stabs the pilot in the chest. The lightsaber zooms back to land in the hands of the one and only, Darth Vader.
Stormtroopers also move into the room. After players fire at Vader and the Stormtroopers, Vader force crushes the rebels’ weapons. Vader starts walking ominously towards the party.
K-2SO rams the Imperial transport into the side of the building, scooping up the players and the crate. After leaving the atmosphere, you jump to hyperspace and the adventure is over…for now!
