Been having a great discussion on the Beginners forum about running an Imperial campaign but the current options are limited:
Class - Specialties
Bounty Hunter - Assassin, Gadgeteer, Survivalist
Colonist - Doctor, Politico, Scholar
Explorer - Fringer, Scout, Trader
Hired Gun - Bodyguard, Marauder, Mercenary Soldier
Smuggler - Pilot, Scoundrel, Thief
Technician - Mechanic, Outlaw Tech, Slicer
Could we add two other classes to the mix:
Imperial - with the Specialties of Officer, Pilot, Soldier
Rebel - with the Specialties of Officer, Pilot, Soldier
I'm thinking of an Imperial campaign with perhaps a force-sensitive jedi-hunter, an Imperial Officer, a couple Stormtroopers, a bounty hunter and a few NPC Stormtroopers to help them out and act as redshirts. Hunt down pirates and Rebel scum and the like.
Other players may want to run a campaign as Rebels. Not everyone likes to play Fringe. Some of us like to commit to the cause.
