This build I stumbled on is a kick… It's a "Zero-to-Hero" build… I think a may just have to actually play this build… The fun which could be had at the game table is simply too tempting! Here are the numbers:
(Note: I am aware that this build functions on a lot choices that may not be the most wise at the beggining… That said)
+10 XP additional Obligation needed (120 XP build)
All characteristics start at 2
Skills (all starting at rank 1): Astrogate, Charm, Cool, Discipline, Pilot (Planet), Pilot (Space), Survival, Vigilance
Force Sensitive Exile: Uncanny Reactions / Scout: Stalker > Quick Strike > Let's Ride (20 XP for additional Specialization, 30 XP for Talents)
Force Powers: Sense > Control Upgrade > Duration Upgrade > Strength Upgrade > Control Upgrade (70 XP for power and uprades)
Yes… It is an odd build… Yup… No combat skills… it is a Scout though. But… Activate that Sense power and it all changes! Convert 2 ability dice to 2 proficiency dice for attack skills! (Brawl, Gunnery, Melee, Ranged - Light & Ranged Heavy), as well as the ability to upgrade the difficulty of attacks targetting you twice! With Blaster Pistols modified to provide Quick Draw (Filled Front Sight) and being sure to activate that Sense power before combat starts, this build can make for an interesting combatant… especially during that 1st confused round.
I am sure many out there would not have as much fun as I with a build like this, but something about it just tickles me! With that Sense power providing Offensive skill on par with any other starting character across the range of possible weapon types… as well as the defensive boost potential… The build can hang in the midst of a firefight (or starfighter fight) with the best of them!
Maybe this should be the "Use the Force Luke…" build
Final Note (to self): Stop posting builds…
