    Consortium Campaign Walkthrough              [CW000]
    -------------------------------
    
    This is a walkthrough of the Forces of Corruption campaign on Medium
    difficulty. It includes the conquest of every possible system although it is
    certainly possible to skip many, even most of them and still complete the
    campaign.
    
    ============
    Prison Break                                 [CW001]
    ============
    
    Mission Objectives:
    1. Get Tyber Zann to the Millennium Falcon.
    2. Tyber Zann must survive.
    3. Urai Fen must survive.
    
    You begin with Tyber Zann, Urai Fen, and 200 credits. Your goal is to navigate
    the linear route to the Millenium Falcon while being bombarded with
    introductory level tips. Destroy the console to the near north and Bribe the
    Stormtrooper squad standing on the door's other side. 2 squads of prisoners
    join you; more and more allies will appear as you progress through the mission.
    Kill or Bribe all hostiles as you go, sending prisoners into battle first, then
    Urai, then Tyber. Destroying optional consoles releases more prisoners. When
    you move north through a door locked by a console, a new objective appears:
    
    4: Destroy the Dark Troopers controlling the exit door.
    
    Focus fire on the Dark Troopers. When they are destroyed, the mission ends.
    
    ============
    Galactic Map                                 [CW002]
    ============
    
    The Consortium controls Ryloth and its level 3 Space Station, Palace, Mercenary
    Barracks, 3 Grenadiers, 2 Swamp Speeders, 2 MDUs, 3 StarVipers, and 3 Skiprays.
    Upgrade the station and build 3 Merc Assault Squads. When you are prompted to
    build a Defiler, do so. When you are prompted to attempt an Intimidation
    mission on Honoghr, do so. Throughout the campaign use fast forward while Tyber
    talks so you gain some credits while you wait for the next objective to appear.
    
    =====================
    Intimidate the Noghri                        [CW003]
    =====================
    
    Mission Objectives:
    1. Urai Fen must survive.
    2. Destroy Imperial Fleet Commander Malinth.
    3. Destroy 3 Noghri Camps.
    
    You have Urai, 3 Grenadier squads, 3 Merc squads, and 6 Swamp Speeders. March
    northeast and have Urai and the Swamp Speeders kill the Noghri while the
    Grenadiers assault the 2 camps. The Speeders will have some time to help with
    the camps. March north and position the Speeders in front of the gap in the
    Imperial wall to kill any infantry that passes while Urai and the Grenadiers
    advance to the third camp and level it. When that objective is accomplished,
    use Urai's stealth to get him past the turret so he can assassinate the target.
    
    ==========
    Corruption                                   [CW004]
    ==========
    
    Wait for Tyber to demand a Racketeering mission on Shola; if your 3 Mercs are
    done, build a Defiler and comply. Build 2 more Defilers and wait for the next
    mission. When Mandalore becomes available for corruption, so does Nal Hutta.
    Corrupting everything possible before moving on with the required missions is
    both safe and profitable. The options at Nal Hutta are Kidnapping and Corrupt
    Militia. Kidnapping is preferable since some corruption methods require a
    Kidnapping to have been performed as a prerequisite. Of course, Corrupt Militia
    does not require a fight.
    
    Kidnapping on Nal Hutta                      [CW005]
    -----------------------
    
    Mission Objectives:
    1. Urai Fen must survive.
    2. Capture Director Tanda alive.
    3. Disable or destroy the shield protecting the compound.
    
    You have Urai, 2 Defilers, 6 Grenadiers, and 2 Pod Walkers. Head north. Have
    Urai kill the Twi'lek Commandoes while the Walkers kill skiffs. Once the first
    hostiles are cleared, use Grenadiers and Defilers to level the Hutt building
    on the west side while the Walkers attack the turret on the east. Pod Walkers
    outrange that turret, so move them back and order attack again if they are
    being hit. Once the turret is down, destroy the shield generator. Head north.
    Have Urai stealth past the next turret and stand next to Tanda.
    
    Back on the galactic map, send a Defiler to Mandalore to initiate Piracy.
    
    ==================================
    Raid Mandal Hypernautics Shipments           [CW006]
    ==================================
    
    Mission Objectives:
    1. Defeat the Mandalorian Clan Leader.
    2. Tyber Zann's Interceptor Frigate must survive.
    3. Lure the Mandalorian Clan Leader out of hiding by attacking the Space
    Station.
    
    You have Tyber Zann in an Interceptor IV, 6 Starvipers, and 8 Skiprays. Split
    the Skiprays into two groups and send them northeast to attack the station.
    Send the StarVipers to escort them while Tyber hides in the asteroid field to
    the south. After a few hardpoints go down, the Clan Leader shows up in a
    Keldabe. Bomb it with Skiprays starting with its mass driver hardpoints. Bring
    Tyber in to assist once those are gone.
    
    =========
    Expansion                                    [CW007]
    =========
    
    Tyber wants to conquer or bribe his way to Yavin IV. Unfortunately, only one of
    these options lets you increase your anemic population cap. It is time to
    conquer the planets near Ryloth. Shola is a good first target as it has light
    space defenses and no station. Mandalore has tougher space defences but no
    army. Whichever target you choose, it is time to build a fleet. The only heavy
    hitter in the Consortium space arsenal is the Skipray Blastboat. A fleet made
    up of a large number of Skiprays, a smaller number (say half) of StarVipers to
    take out fighters, and an Interceptor or two for anti-corvette duty will serve
    well for this segment. In fact, it will serve well for most of the campaign.
    4-6 Skiprays in a group will take out most hardpoints even if they take some
    losses on the run. Prioritize Space Station hangars to cut down on
    reinforcements.
    
    For a ground army, Tyber, Urai, a couple MDUs, and a lot of Grenadiers are
    about the best you can do for now. A Defiler or two can come in handy for
    clearing bunkers. Urai should go in the pathfinder slot so he can head for a
    neutral landing zone right away. Be sure to take advantage of the Forces of
    Corruption feature allowing you to examine the enemy's base layout before you
    attack; finding and destroying structures quickly can save a lot of hassle.
    
    A population cap of 21 doesn't allow for a strong fleet and ground force.
    Therefore, manipulate it by selling your Grenadiers to free up cap for the
    fleet, then sell ships once you've taken space control over the desired planet
    to rebuild the army. Make sure to keep at least one Skipray over the planet for
    bombing runs.
    
    Once you have conquered a planet, upgrade its space station as far as possible
    and build a Palace. Building other unit production structures will help if you
    ever need to build a lot of troops quickly later, and since the Consortium
    cannot construct mining facilities, you might as well. Leaving a few units
    (such as Grenadiers) is prudent, though having your planets invaded is not much
    of a concern in this campaign so it is not necessary.
    
    Shola                                        [CW008]
    -----
    
    Space: There are several space platforms. Send your StarVipers to kill enemy
    fighters before they build anything.
    
    Land: This planet hurts infantry and is defended by a lot of vehicles, so MDU
    Missile Pods are a good choice. If you still have the starting Swamp Speeders,
    they can help. You can push up the northeast passage while Urai captures the
    far eastern reinforcement point.
    
    Mandalore                                    [CW009]
    ---------
    
    Space: The Space Station has some platforms near it, so try to take them over.
    This battle is not tough enough to require you actually build anything on them,
    though.
    
    Nal Hutta                                    [CW010]
    ---------
    
    Space: The platforms are between you and the station. There is no real danger
    from them.
    
    Land: The path to the second landing zone is surrounded by Hutt buildings. Use
    Grenadiers to level them. Tyber cannot bribe the Hutts, but he can kill them
    quickly. The reinforcement point is too well defended for Urai to capture it.
    He can sneak past it to destroy an anti-aircraft turret on the north side of
    the big rock in the middle of the map; it will stop your bombing runs if left
    alone. Push into the landing zone with bombing runs and staggered MDUs. Once
    you have secured that reinforcement point, victory is assured.
    
    This is a good point to do something cheesy: Put the game on fast forward and
    leave it to amass credits. Everything the Consortium does costs a bundle, and
    building up a war chest while AFK saves time when you actually want to play.
    If you do not wish to do this or if you already have, continue to Honoghr.
    
    Honoghr                                      [CW011]
    -------
    
    Space: This is the first space battle against the Empire. Expect to lose more
    Skiprays from all the TIEs coming from not only the station, but also the
    Imperial carriers. Bomb Acclamator hangars quickly.
    
    Land: There is a build pad just north of the starting location; build a torpedo
    turret there to guard against Noghri coming from their dwelling to the north
    and AT-STs coming into the landing zone. The zone to the east is defended, but
    Urai can harass the enemy and possibly even capture it himself. There is an
    abandoned factory between the two landing zones; capture it to get some Pod
    Walkers, which are a big help against bunkers, AT-STs, and Scout Troopers. In
    the far southwest there is an Abandoned Sensor Array. If you capture it, you
    can easily bomb the Imperial Barracks and Noghri camps.
    
    
    The Maw                                      [CW012]
    -------
    
    Space: The station is ringed by platforms, so move in quickly. Other than that,
    this mission should prove no difficulty. A Victory cannot stand up against
    Skiprays much longer than an Acclamator can.
    
    At this point you must decide whether to invade Kamino and Kessel even though
    you cannot yet corrupt them. Waiting until they are corrupted not only makes
    the battles themselves easier, but the operations themselves can be
    prerequisites for later corruptions. Move on to Yavin 4 with Tyber.
    
    ==========================
    Remnants of the Death Star                   [CW013]
    ==========================
    
    Mission Objectives:
    1. # of 4 data pods collected.
    2. Tyber Zann must survive.
    3. Scout the area to find and collect 4 data pods with Tyber Zann.
    
    The first pod is just north of the start and clearly marked. North of that is
    an Imperial force, but the 4 Tartans will join your fleet. Continue moving
    along the edge of the map. The second pod is on the northern edge to the east
    of center. The third is near the second to the west-southwest. Now head for
    the southwest corner directly. Let your StarVipers deal with the pirate and
    Rebel fighters en route. A ship with the last pod appears when you reach the
    corner. Order your entire fleet to attack it immediately. A cutscene about an
    Imperial fleet interrupts, but when it ends your fleet will be almost done
    annihilating the ship. Pick up the pod.
    
    ============
    Black Market                                 [CW014]
    ============
    
    Kuat is now available, but Tyber Zann refuses to invade it. Unfortunately, the
    Empire can and will invade you from Kuat. Station a 25+ population fleet at Nal
    Hutta permanently.
    
    Establish the Black Market and buy disruptors on Kuat as ordered. Mercs are now
    much more valuable; replace Grenadiers lost to battles and garrison duty with
    them. Buy the other technologies when you can, though there is no hurry.
    
    Sabotage is introduced, which transforms ground invasions for the rest of the
    campaign. Sabotage every enemy structure before you invade to make battles
    quick and easy. Before that, you must corrupt Saleucami. There are two choices,
    but Intimidation will give you the prerequisite you need to set up Racketeering
    on Yavin 4.
    
    
    Intimidation on Saleucami                    [CW015]
    -------------------------
    
    Mission Objectives:
    1. Urai Fen must survive.
    2. Find Governor Koong Eeth.
    
    You have Urai, 2 Defilers, and 3 Merc Assault Squads. You can simply run to the
    east, stealth past heavy defenses, and kill the governor before the enemy can
    do a thing about it.
    
    Sabotage Saleucami's Shield Generator and corrupt Yavin. Send a fleet and your
    army to Saleucami and start the mission.
    
    ========================
    Communications Breakdown                     [CW016]
    ========================
    
    Mission Objectives:
    1. Urai Fen must survive.
    2. Recapture a reinforcement point.
    
    You have Urai, 3 Mercs, and 12 Grenadiers. Immediately pull your infantry west
    and start building turrets on all the pads while Urai stealths south to the
    landing zone.
    
    3. Destroy all remaining Hutt forces.
    
    While Urai stuns and kills the southern infantry and captures the point, have
    your infantry march south and destroy the Hutt buildings. Use a bombing run
    on the densest enemy concentration and bring in reinforcements to finish up.
    
    Urai is now unavailable until after the Hypori mission, but that is no reason
    to delay conquering Yavin 4 now that sabotage is available.
    
    Yavin 4                                      [CW017]
    -------
    
    Space: The Rebel forces spread out aimlessly, leaving their frigates vulnerable
    to bombers and their bombers vulnerable to Buzz Droids.
    
    Land: The beginning of this battle can be something of an onslaught. Quickly
    capture the three pads to the front of the landing zone and the pad to the back
    and build mass drivers. Send Tyber up the eastern path to capture the northern
    landing zone. Once you survive the speeder assault, you can sweep the map clean
    of Rebels. Note the Rebel Training Facility a short way west of the starting
    point, which will churn out units if left alone.
    
    Take a fleet and your army to Hypori.
    
    ===================
    Visions of the Past                          [CW018]
    ===================
    
    Mission Objectives:
    1. Get Urai to the controls to disable the droids.
    2. Tyber Zann must survive.
    3. Urai Fen must survive.
    
    You start with Tyber Zann and Urai Fen. Send them to the highlighted droid
    controls immediately and start landing infantry and MDUs. Build mass drivers
    on the pads your heroes pass and bring up the army behind them. When Urai
    reaches the controls, a cutscene brings a new hero and new objectives:
    
    4. Bossk must survive.
    5. Get Urai Fen to the Droid Works to gain droid allies.
    6. Capture all reinforcement points.
    
    Send Urai to the marked structure. Have Tyber capture more pads. Send Bossk to
    unite with your army which can start marching on the landing zones.
    
    7. The Droid Works must survive.
    
    When Urai reaches the Droid Works, start throwing Droidekas at the enemy. They
    make capturing the reinforcement points simple. The enemy continues landing
    troops at the zones it still controls, so stay alert.
    
    ==========
    Domination                                   [CW019]
    ==========
    
    You can now build Droid Works and subsequently Destroyer Droids. Droidekas come
    in handy when attacking sabotaged planets, since they can catch aimlessly
    scurrying infantry. You can even block off bunkers with them. You can build
    Factories, which lead to Repulsorlift Jammers, which you may as well place on
    all planets just in case. Factories can churn out transports, pulse tanks, and
    M.A.L.s, the latter two of which are useful. MDUs are more or less obsolete in
    the face of dedicated artillery when there is little chance of fighting any
    hordes of Force sensitives. The Crusader becomes available once Tyber shuts up.
    Its point defense systems will be useful later, but Skiprays are still your
    main firepower and torpedoes are little threat to them. You also have a new
    hero. Bossk is more useful in space than on land in this campaign.
    
    Several new systems become available to be corrupted and conquered. Tatooine
    is a good place to set up a Rebel-based Black Market. Felucia, Mustafar,
    Muunilinst, and Utapau are all candidates for the Bribery missions you need as
    prerequisites for corrupting Kessel and Kamino. You also need two Crusaders.
    For conquest, Kamino is a good first target because of its cheap infantry
    production. Going up the western lanes to Hoth keeps your borders safe. Buy all
    of Tatooine's technology before grabbing the planet. Kessel is next to Kuat, so
    taking it necessitates leaving a fleet but opens up Felucia. If you wait until
    you can perform Piracy on Kessel to corrupt it, you can corrupt Endor later but
    there is little reason to do so unless you really want Ewok Handlers. Finally,
    head up towards Dathomir and the next mission.

    ------
    
    Space: Nothing here has any chance of stopping you.
    
    Land: The starting population cap is only 2, so send Urai north to the landing
    zone quickly. Land a Merc company and start building torpedo turrets on the
    pads in your base. When Lancets fly over, manually order the Mercs to fire on
    them or they will not bother for some reason. One extra reinforcement point
    should be enough. Pulse cannon tanks are a good choice for any remaining light
    vehicles and bunkers.
    
    Utapau                                       [CW021]
    ------
    
    Space: There are several platforms spread in front of the station. Send
    fighters to capture them or prevent Rebel capture quickly. One is particularly
    close to the station and is a good place for a missile satellite.
    
    Land: Destroyer Droids are ideal for eliminating infantry running around this
    huge ring.
    
    Mustafar                                     [CW022]
    --------
    
    Space: Be sure to sabotage the Hypervelocity Gun before attacking. There is a
    platform next to the station the Empire is almost certain to capture. Rush in
    and destroy it, then mop up the rest.
    
    Land: Send Urai to the southern landing zone while landing infantry. Send a
    squad to the northeast reinforcement point while the other two capture the
    nearby pads and build turrets. Bring in pulse tanks to clear out bunkers and
    droidekas to chase down infantry when your population cap goes up.

    Space: This battle should present no difficulties.
    
    Land: Send Urai to one landing zone and Droidekas to the other. Have infantry
    capture the pads by the base entrance and the point the Destroyers secured.
    
    Tatooine                                     [CW024]
    --------
    
    Space: Sabotage the Ion Cannon first. Charging through the nebula is not very
    deleterious to a Skipray-heavy Consortium fleet.
    
    Land: The Rebel garrison can be quite powerful. Keep landing tanks and M.A.L.s
    while Urai captures reinforcement points. Try to take out the Rebel artillery
    quickly, even if you have to sacrifice units to do it. If you are having
    trouble, try not sabotaging the Mining Facility beforehand so the Rebels try
    to defend it rather than throwing their entire army against you.

    ------
    
    Space: This is as routine as a space battle can be.
    
    Land: Move north with Urai and Droidekas. Try to kill infantry before it enters
    the bunker. Land artillery or tanks to take out the bunker if it is garrisoned.
    
    Felucia                                      [CW026]

    Space: Unlike the Empire and Alliance, pirates do not tech up. This is a comic
    relief battle.
    
    Land: The starting population cap is 10. This, too, is a comic relief battle.

    -------
    
    Space: This field has no distinguishing features, and neither does the enemy.
    
    Fleet: Bring in tanks and Destroyer Droids and prepare to charge whichever
    direction the enemy lies. After Urai captures the neutral reinforcement point,
    he can take the nearby Mercenary Outfitter as well.
    
    Muunilinst                                   [CW028]
    ----------
    
    Space: This is easy even for a space battle.
    
    Land: There are abandoned factories to the far east and west of the starting
    landing zone. It is a long walk for infantry, so use a transport if you wish
    to capture them quickly. It is not necessary to do so, of course. Pulse tanks
    backed by M.A.L.s can dominate the narrow internal streets.
    
    Most of the galaxy belongs to the Consortium. Sabotage the Dathomir scanner
    (and everything else) and send Tyber Zann and Urai Fen to begin the mission.

    A Dark Ally                                  [CW029]
    ===========
    
    Mission Objectives:
    1. Liberate the Singing Mountain Prison.
    2. Tyber Zann and Urai Fen must survive.
    
    You have Tyber and Urai. The Prison is directly east. First, destroy the nearby
    Uplink Station. It is guarded by AT-STs and a Dark Trooper, but the heroes will
    have no trouble. Now head for the narrow path starting slightly northwest of
    the prison. Bribe or kill the Imperials you meet and avoid Rancors.
    
    3. Destroy the Singing Mountain prison's power generator.
    
    Head through the narrow path and destroy the Volatile Fuel Containers behind
    the generator, then finish off whatever health it has left. Move to the prison
    building itself. Have Urai fend off the Stormtroopers while Tyber and his
    bribed troops destroy the prison.
    
    4. Liberate the Frenzied River Prison.
    5. Lead the Nightsisters to Rancor to mount them.
    
    You now have a horde of barely useful prisoners, 3 Ewok Handlers, and 3
    unmounted Nightsisters. Get the latter in the vicinity of Rancors and they will
    get themselves mounted automatically. Rancors do not attack Nightsisters. When
    they are mounted, send them to the wall blocking the northwest path and destroy
    the turrets and gate.
    
    6. Destroy the three Imperial Uplink Stations.
    
    Send Tyber and Urai stealthed past the Stormtroopers and AT-AT on the bridge to
    the next Uplink Station. Destroy the SPMA-T there, then the Dark Troopers. Take
    down the turret and put up your own to destroy the station while you are there.
    Now send in the Nightsisters and Ewok bombers to attack the AT-AT. The other
    prisoners can destroy the bacta station in front of the bridge and put up their
    own; it will help keep the Nightsisters alive. If Phase III Dark Troopers
    approach, send everything you have at them, but watch Tyber and Urai's health
    carefully and be ready to stealth them. The Troopers can end this mission in a
    heartbeat. Recuperate at the bacta station.
    
    Send the Nightsisters to the small western field. They can pass through the
    Rancors unmolested to the Power Generator. Destroy it, then march on Frenzied
    River Prison. Roll over the Stormtroopers and level the prison.
    
    7. Tyber Zann, Urai Fen, and Silri must survive.
    8. Destroy the Governor's Quarters.
    
    Summon Silri's Rancor. You have 3 more Nightsisters, so get them mounted. You
    have another load of prisoners as well. March east with your massive army. More
    Phase IIIs are out there, so deal with them cautiously. Turn the next pad into
    a bacta station. Advance across the river with the Nightsisters in front into
    2 AT-ATs. Behind them are SPMA-Ts. Destroy them all, micromanaging the Rancors.
    Send your heroes north to destroy the AT-STs and the Uplink Station they are
    guarding. Stop short of the next prison. Maneuver Tyber and Urai to its south
    side and take out the fuel containers and the generator, then march in your
    army and flatten the prison building.
    
    March south and clear out the mining facility defenses. Send your mounted
    Nightsisters to the far south past the Rancors to take out the AT-STs and the
    Power Generator. Get your new Nightsisters mounted there. Roll into the HQ
    area and crush everything. Imperial Guardsmen are tough, but Drain Life stuns
    them.
    
    Back on the map, invade Dathomir when Tyber and Thrawn shut up.

    --------
    
    Space: The Empire starts showing its true power at this stage in the game with
    ISDs and TIE Interceptors. Meanwhile, you have the same ships as ever. This
    battle should not be too taxing even with those considerations as long as you
    spread Buzz Droids around the Interceptors diligently and torpedo the ISD
    hangars.
    
    Land: The local Rancors are on your side, which makes taking down bunkers and
    the Imperial transport easy.
    
    Wait for the next mission. Build up your forces in the meantime, including a
    couple Nightsisters if you wish. When Bespin becomes available, move a fleet
    and your army there.

    Cloud City Conflict                          [CW031]
    ===================
    
    Mission Objectives:
    1. Collect eight gas containers with the Gas Cargo Droids.
    2. After filling your droids at the refineries, return them to the shuttle to
    unload the gas.
    3. Use Tyber to locate and plant evidence at the four security outposts.
    4. Tyber, Urai, and IG-88 must survive.
    
    You have Tyber, Urai, IG-88, and 5 Gas Cargo Droids. Move the droids back, land
    a M.A.L. company and deploy quickly, and destroy the enemy bacta station to
    put up a Mass Driver Turret in its place. Fight off the initial Stormtroopers
    and AT-STs, then sieze the nearby reinforcement point. Station a M.A.L. at the
    juncture of the two landing zones. Deploy the other M.A.L.s with Droideka
    escorts to guard the right and left curves. Land 2 pulse tank companies and
    dispatch them to the refinery areas to clear out AT-STs; send the gas droids
    when the way is clear. There is a security station right in front of the
    landing zone, so let Tyber use it. March your heroes, backed by some vehicles,
    to take the northwest and northeast reinforcement points and have Tyber use the
    security stations there. Spread M.A.L.s around the main ring. Build turrets
    at all the pads except the refinery areas', which can be bacta and repair
    stations if your heroes need healing. When your position is settled and the
    droids are done, push into the northern ring with your MZ-8s, heroes, and
    Droidekas.
    
    5. Use IG-88 to hack the central server cluster.
    6. Tyber, Urai, and IG-88 must survive.
    
    Clear out the ring with the tanks and Destroyer Droids, stationing artillery
    around it as you go. The enemy is mostly Stormtroopers and AT-STs, but there
    are Phase IIIs at the far northern security station. Once the ring is secure,
    send Tyber to the station and IG-88 to the highlighted server cluster. Return
    each hero to the shuttle as soon as his job is completed.
    
    7. Get Tyber Zann, Urai Fen, and IG-88 back to the shuttle.
    
    Relax and watch Vader and his Force Adepts try to get through your rocket
    gauntlet. And fail.
    
    Back on the map, wait for the conversations to finish. You may now build the
    Vengeance-class Frigate. The Interceptor IV is obsolete; replace it with
    Vengeances. It is possible to move away from a fighter/bomber-centric fleet now
    by concentrating on large numbers of Vengeances escorted by Crusaders, but such
    a fleet is not truly superior yet. However, the defensive fleets at Nal Hutta
    and Kessel are good candidates for this composition and the lacking elements
    will be available soon. In any case, take Bespin.

    Space: There is no space battle.
    
    Land: The only real obstacle is Darth Vader. Put up turrets and artillery. Do
    not count on blaster troops such as Droidekas. Let Vader come to you so you can
    overwhelm him while Urai captures points. M.A.L.s stationed in the landing
    zones can fire on the inner ring.
    
    It is time to move on Carida, but corrupt it first. Any option works, but just
    in case you pick the one that gives you a fight:

    2. Locate and secure Admiral Dalken Hol.
    
    
    You have Bossk, 2 MDUs, 3 Destroyer Droids, 3 Grenadiers, and 3 Mercs. Move
    east and set up an MDU's turret at the intersection of the three islands. March
    onto the southeast island and clear your way to the pad; build a torpedo turret
    there. Set up the other MDU nearby. Creep forward with Bossk until you can see
    Dark Troopers. Let the turrets fire on them as much as possible before engaging
    with the rest of your army. When Lancets fly over, be sure to have your Mercs
    fire on them. Reposition the second MDU near the first and have Bossk catch the
    Admiral.
    
    3. Escort Dalken Hol back to the transport.
    
    Return Bossk to the transport while your forces hold off Imperials coming from
    the northeast.
    
    Put Tyber in a powerful fleet and head for Carida.

    Baiting the Hook                             [CW034]
    ================
    
    Mission Objectives:
    1. Destroy all the Empire forces.
    2. Tyber Zann must survive.
    
    In addition to the fleet you brought, you have the Merciless. This is your
    first acquaintance with Aggressors. They can be finicky. Move them into attack
    range manually rather than clicking and letting them find their own way,
    because there is a good chance they will not. Target hardpoints for each
    Aggressor individually to avoid wasting damage. Try to line them up on the
    target before ordering them to attack, especially when using the Blast ability
    of the Merciless.
    
    As to the battle itself, it is a slugfest, and you have the biggest slugs. The
    Skiprays should target the engines on the Star Destroyers after their hangars
    to give Tyber a better chance of hitting them. Drop Buzz Droids everywhere.
    
    You can now build Aggressors. It is time for a strategic defense review.
    Skiprays are no longer needed for destroying stations or the heaviest ships,
    though they can still be helpful if you do not wish to sell them. Therefore,
    StarVipers and their ability to keep up with Skiprays are no longer required
    and should be sold so they do not clog up population at the start of a battle.
    An Aggressor or two backed by Vengeances and escorted by Crusaders is the way
    to go. IG-88 is a pretty good space hero to bring along, and of course the
    Merciless is fantastic.
    
    You can build Canderous Assault Tanks. While the ground forces you have should
    be sufficient to conquer everything left, this is an excellent unit and can
    help in some of the upcoming battles.
    
    The rest of the galaxy opens up. Corrupt everything while the Consortium
    heroes discuss things. Following this walkthrough means you cannot corrupt
    Endor, but doing so is useless since Tyber forbids attacks on both Endor and
    Sullust (he is a big Return of the Jedi fan). If you choose Intimidation on
    Alzoc 3 and Taris:

    Mission Objectives:
    1. Tyber Zann must survive.
    2. Collect ten Prize Shaak heads.
    
    You have Tyber, a M.A.L., and 3 Mercs. Move the Mercs northeast and garrison
    the bunker. Deploy the artillery south of the bunker; carbonite can be helpful
    here. Have Tyber kill Shaaks, Bribe infantry, and construct a bacta station
    for himself if necessary. You may have to stealth into the base to get a Shaak
    depending on how they wander.
    
    3. Use Tyber to deliver the Shaak heads to the food Commissioner.
    
    Stealth through the base and finish the job.

    Mission Objectives:
    1. Intimidate Twitch
    2. Silri must survive.
    
    You have Silri, 6 Destroyer Droids, 2 Defilers, 3 Grenadiers, and 3 Mercs. The
    target is due west, but you have to circle around. To the north are some
    Stormtroopers and AT-STs, which should be no trouble. Nearer Twitch are an
    AT-AT, a turret, and a Phase III, but between Silri's pet and the Defilers'
    explosives they will go down quickly. Attack Twitch to end it.
    
    Soon the Keldabe will become available and the next mission will be assigned.
    The Keldabe is what you need to make your fleets truly formidable, but it
    will take time to build up a good supply because it only certain systems can
    construct them. Mandalore is unable to build them in the campaign for some
    reason, so all you have is Hypori (and soon Fondor). You should only need a
    few, but better safe than sorry.
    
    Meanwhile, conquer the rest of the galaxy and raise that population cap to fit
    in Keldabes. The Empire will start attacking Dathomir even if there are Rebels
    between it and them, so leave a small fleet there. Get Myrkr quickly and
    proceed from Dathomir through the north of the galaxy. The Rebel fleet at
    Sullust and the Death Star at Endor will not attack you.

    Land: Do not send Urai to the west point right away as Vornskrs will kill him.
    Send some vehicles such as pulse tanks to clear the lair along the way first.
    Capture the pads and bunker north of the starting position. The Vornskrs are
    more dangerous than the pirates, but you can avoid them except for the lair
    between the southern landing zones.

    Following the Artifact                       [CW044]
    ======================
    
    Mission Objectives:
    1. Tyber, Urai, and Silri must survive.
    2. Destroy the monitoring controls.
    
    You have Tyber. Head east and bribe the Stormtroopers across the wall so they
    can destroy the door controls. Kill the remaining Stormtroopers and have your
    bribed squad garrison the bunker. Head north.
    
    3. Defeat the Force Adepts.
    
    Destroy the bacta station and stealth to get Tyber into the bunker. Ideally
    Tyber will gun the Adepts down from there; if not, pop him out of the bunker,
    stealth, and go construct a bacta station on the pad. With that behind him, he
    can take out the Adepts. Wait for Stormtroopers to head through the northern
    door and Bribe them. Use your troopers to clear out the next hall and all the
    controls.
    
    4. Find the location of the artifact.
    
    You have Silri and her Rancor. Head east through the Imperial Guards. Silri's
    Drain Life deals with them easily; when that is on cooldown, have Cuddles get
    their attention and bring in Silri after. Build a bacta tank on the first pad
    you find and a turret on the second. Clear the room and bust the controls. Go
    into the Dark Trooper room and drain the Guards while the Rancor takes out the
    turret. Build bacta there and heal, then head north and clear out the next
    room. Build a turret in that room and heal up by the bacta. Break the controls
    and take the artifact.
    
    5. Defeat the Force Adepts.
    6. Destroy the power nodes.
    
    You have Urai. The Force Adepts should be no trouble unless you somehow attack
    three at once. If you are in trouble, simply stealth and regenerate.
    
    7. Escape with the artifact.
    
    You have Silri and her Rancor. Send Cuddles back to the Dark Trooper room, then
    have Silri approach. But save first.
    
    8. Defeat the Dark Troopers.
    
    Have the Rancor attack the Dark Troopers as they activate. He can deal with
    them easily unless he decides not to attack.
    
    9. Gain access to the vault.
    10. Defeat the Force Adepts.
    
    You have Tyber, Urai, Silri, and her Rancor. You are immediately assaulted by
    Imperial Guards and Force Adepts. Try to have Cuddles and Urai engage first,
    but watch Urai's health. Head west to find a pad if you need to build bacta.
    Head south then west through more Guards. You receive 3 MDUs. Go into the north
    room. Build a Mass Driver Turret and enter the vault.
    
    After the cutscene. quickly space and deploy your MDUs. Give one a Sensor
    Scrambler and the others turrets. Destroy the Dark Troopers as they jump down.
    Enter the vault for real.
    
    11. Escape with the passkey.
    12. Use Ysalamiri Cages to defeat the Master Force Adept.
    
    Replacement MDUs come in if you lost any. Build one Ysalamiri Cage and two
    turrets, then wait for the Adept to die. Watch Urai since he can get himself
    killed in an instant. Move south and enter the HAVt. Drive along the narrow
    path and activate Point Defense Laser System when you near turrets.
    
    Once the Death Star is destroyed, the final mission is assigned. There is no
    point in conquering Endor, but here it is for completeness.

    Now assemble your entire fleet in one staging system. Be careful when moving
    there; Tyber's fleet may move through Kuat as if it could bribe its way past
    only to start the battle. When your fleet is gathered and looks appropriately
    ridiculous, attack.
    
    ========================
    The Emperor's New Weapon                     [CW046]
    ========================
    
    Mission Objectives:
    
    1. Capture the Eclipse using your shuttle.
    2. Protect your shuttle.
    3. The Merciless must survive.
    4. Help the Rebel Alliance eliminate the three Imperial space stations.
    
    You have your fleet (always including the Merciless) and a shuttle. The fourth
    objective is not a priority. Concentrate on the first. Make your way around
    the edge of the map to the Eclipse. Going north then west reduces the chance
    you will be caught up in the central conflict. Damaged Imperial ships warp in
    frequently, and you can get bogged down there. You can destroy the northeastern
    station as you pass by, though. When your shuttle nears the Eclipse, it
    disappears and you have to wait a short time for the boarding to complete.
    
    5. Defend the Eclipse.
    6. Eliminate the Imperial space stations.
    7. Destroy the Millennium Falcon and drive the remaining Rebels away from this
    sector.
    
    Position your fleet around the Eclipse and start blasting everything with the
    superlaser, starting with the nearest enemies. Keep Crusaders along the length
    of the Eclipse. When objectives 6 and 7 are completed, the superlaser
    malfunctions. The Millennium Falcon may take a long time destroy if it decides
    to play around.
    
    8. Destroy the Super Star Destroyer.
    
    Keep on the Eclipse and eliminate the Imperial ships as they come in. Take out
    the SSD's forward hardpoints, but do not leave the Eclipse to take down the
    whole ship. The superlaser will be repaired eventually. Let it finish off the
    SSD.
    
    9. Destroy the remaining Imperial forces.
    
    This should be easy enough. Your fleet can wade away from the Eclipse now, but
    leave some Crusaders there. Clean up to win the game.

    New Faction Material                         [NF000]
    --------------------
    
    Forces of Corruption adds units and heroes to the existing Empire at War
    factions as well as adding a new faction with its own set of units, heroes, and
    structures. Each faction has been given a ground transport which can carry up
    to ten units or squads. Each faction has been given an MDU, which can have one
    of three structures (depending on the faction) built on it when deployed for a
    credit fee. An MDU cannot be undeployed unless the structure is destroyed or
    sold. The structure's health is separate from the MDU's.
    
    Costs are in credits. Costs in parentheses refer to skirmish mode costs. Times
    are in seconds. Health, shield, and speed numbers are in arbitrary game units.
