Game Notes:

Power: The Death Star’s power systems can generate 2D of damage per hour. The Death Star’s superlaser can fire at 1/4 power to destroy a city, 1/2 power to destroy a small moon or ship, 3/4 power to destroy a planetary shield or Medium size planet, or maximum power to destroy a large planet.

Size: Due to the immense size of the Death Star, it is divided into 24 distinct zones, each equally equipped with weapons. Only weapons within the specific zone adjacent to an attacking ship can be brought to bear at any given time; often, the actual number of weapons that can be brought to bear is significantly lower.

Background: A Death Star was a gargantuan space station armed with a planet-destroying superlaser.

The DS-1 Orbital Battle Station was originally designed by the Geonosians before the Galactic Republic and later the Galactic Empire took over the project. However, the plans for the battle station were stolen by the Rebel Alliance from Scarif,[5] leading to its destruction at the Battle of Yavin, but not before it unleashed its planet-destroying cannon on Alderaan and Jedha City.
