POWER TOKEN: Place your power token (SYMBOL) on the indicated level of the Power Track (on the game board). Power is the commodity you will spend in combat.
COMBAT CARDS: Draw the indicated number of combat cards. The number of combat cards you have is public information, but the content of those cards is kept secret from opponents.
STARS: Place your 6 star tokens at the upper left near the faction emblem.
MECHS: Place your 4 mech miniatures on top of the 4 mech/character abilities.
Do not put tokens on top of the Recruit One-Time Bonuses (bottom left corner)—you’ll gain these benefits when enlisting recruits during the game.
