A downloadable playbook
The havoc of war stops for no one. Even the most capable squad can find themselves in a tight spot if they're not careful — and that’s where you come in. It’s stressful, running mission control for your pilots; in combat, fielding information for your crew can be the difference between success and catastrophe. But hey, that’s the job:
When the going gets tough, everybody can use an extra set of eyes.
The Watchpoint is a playbook for Beam Saber by Austin Ramsay. Watchpoints are shrewd lookouts and sentinels who work closely with their squad, offering them tactical support and guidance at a distance. Though they pilot no vehicles of their own, they seek to answer the question: what does it mean to improve the efficacy of a group that fundamentally advances the goals of empire? How do you take care of your crew without abetting the war?
This fully-illustrated playbook includes everything you need to play a Watchpoint, including:
- 8 playbook moves and 7 pieces of specialist copilot gear
- Unique custom mechanics for dealing with stress and resistance
- Advice and best practices for bringing the playbook to life at the table
- A section on the role of ethics in play
- Tips on GMing for the Watchpoint
