I'm guessing we will get a Leia passenger card w the tantive iv ship coming out shortly (already seen the c3po and r2..


Anyone have any guesses what she would do? Something spyish? Something to do w diplomatic immunity?:)

Well, it's not much of a guess as you can see the card in the preview articles. :P.

I guess she will be a one-time use like the chewy card.

1 Maybe 2 additional actions, huge ships only.

 

...

You want to see her on the falcon?

How about:

"If your attack hits you immidiatly may perform an action shown on your action bar" ... this may be OP but ... shes Leia.

FFG tend to give rebels 'OP characters these days, so this would fit.

 

 

If there was an 'Emperor Crew Card' it would read like:

"Destroy one of your own ships in range 1 to .... " (your sinister idea here)


                 Sir, rebel transports sighted \                              / Affirmative.                                                           

   (-o-)  (-o-)    (-o-o-)     (-o-o-)     (-o-o-)     (-o-o-)    (-o-)  (-o-) 

 Excellent! Gamma wing, prepare for torpedo run. We'll provide cover.

....call forth a 1/270 scale star destroyer to crush your opponent?

Range 1-2, target enemy ship suffers 2 damage and all ships within range 1 also suffer one damage. All ships hit receive one ion token

Leia - 8 pts - discard her to discard all damage that have been asigned toyour ship this turn.  Something like that. Or maybe, 6pts - Leia turns all focus to hit or evade.

Or question your opponents height and masculinity in a snarky manner, and they receive a stress token.

Looking at it from a more serious perspective, Leia is a leader, a diplomat, and a figurehead. I'd be trying to model diplomatic immunity on her... There's no better way than as a higher cost Rebel Captive that gives out two stress tokens or something along that line.

ಠ_ಠ

6 points is a little low for essentially an infinite supply of focus tokens. Lol

A Rebel Captive-esque card should come with an Imperial ship, though.

 

What did she do on the Tantive? She bought some time and was able to sneak the plans off ship... She generally berated everyone around her for most of the movie... They'll almost certainly have given her an ability that would also work on the Falcon...

And she constantly harangued her pursuers about it beng a diplomatic ship, illegal to fire upon, mission of mercy etc. Why would it come on an imperial ship when she's exploiting imperial law to make it hard to shoot her?

Ok, I see where you're going now...

 

Even so, the Empire seemed to have already made up it's mind that she was a Rebel and her ship was a fair target. I could see that as another crew card, but I expect Leia to be something that would work (thematically) just as well on the Falcon.

Maybe 'Diplomatic Immunity' could be an anti-Biggs -- redirect the attack to a friendly ship within Range 1.

You're probably right. The issue being she never does anything on the Falcon(except whine, occasionally fix things, and the whole Han Romance thing.) It works as thematically as anything else, given that Vader says, "I want them Alive." That fits with the Stress thing too.(Although it wasn't just Leia behind that... But it fits. Kind of. As Force intuition protecting his daughter.

She was a good shot in all 3 movies.  Giver her some ability that enhances a ships attack % to hit.  Maybe turn one blank to hit...or add another attack dice.
