Wish list for future Heroes and expansion packs from Star Wars EU

Recommended Posts

We have a strike Commander, a Smuggler, a Heavy Weapon Marksman, a Jedi in Training, a sneaky Sniper and a Wookie Berserker for Heroes in this core set.

 

What is on the top of your list for future playable Heroes?  What would they have as key abilities?

 

I'm thinking there will be a form of Rebel Scout type, a Demolitions Expert and a Gambler archetype at one point.

 

--

 

We can all expect to see Star Wars luminaries like Boba Fett and Lando Calrissian, even R2D2 and C3PO in later expansions.  I'll bet we get even second strings like Dengar later on.

 

But which characters from Star Wars EU are you hoping for.

 

I'm sure there will be a lot of fans wishing for Mara Jade [imperial faction of course given the timeline], but who or what others are you hoping for?

 

I really want to see Defels [Wraiths] as possible mercenaries in this game.

 

And Zero-G Assault Stormtroopers.  Yes please.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record (for repeating myself) I would like to see the characters from the Star Wars Roleplaying Game line be turned into heroes for IA. I'm imagining they wouldn't come in the campaign expansions. Instead, I'm envisioning something akin to the hero and monster collections for Descent. I think the roleplaying game heroes should be in that.

A rebel commando hero.  He would have stealthy and camoflage (defensive?) boosts.  Sort of patterned after Crix Madine.  I see him as different from Fenn Signis, who is more of a "in your face" trooper, "shooting you harder and faster than you shoot me."

 

A saboteur, who is good at setting up traps/bombs, as well as great at tech skills and such.

 

A fringer or someone, with latent force abilities (think Luke on Tatooine, before he meets Old Ben).  He would be decent in a fight, but also have the ability to become semi-proficient with the force, while still using a blaster.  Different from Diala, who is very proficient with a lightsaber and uses the force.

 

 

I dunno, these are the first ones to come to my mind.

archetypes for star wars have been as follows, youthfull padawan ie, Luke, Anakin, Ahsoka, the hard @$$ smuggler/fringer ie han, mara, Dash Rendar young obiwan to an extent, the commander ie Cracken, Rex, even leia could fit here and rotj han to an extent, the loyal brawler warrior, ie chewbacca, adult anakin, quigon, the fool/comic relief, ie C3-PO, jar jar, the pet which technically has always been R2D2, the soldier ie rex, fives, wedge, leia, the spy, again leia, padme, winter, the spy, ie leia, Lyle Katarn, Young Obiwan, Pilot, again Wedge, Luke. Corran Horn, Tycho Celch ect. The diplomat, Bale Organna, Leia, Padme, Mon Mothma. The Commando, Rex, Fives, Echo, Cody, Han again to an extent, could possibly include chewie, Jedi Master, Ie old obiwan, Yoda, Mace Windu. So the reigning archetyoes by my count are Commander, Soldier, Spy, Jedi apprentice/Padawan/exile, Smuggler, Warrior, which they have in the game, so i think we may see the following, Dimplomat, Commando, Jedi Master, Fool/cimic relief, and also i would add pissibly bounty hunter, Technician, Scout, Pilot . But they may just keep the archetypes they already have,. I would like a rebel bounty hunter, A Pilot though i know it is a ground based game pilots were extremely important in star wars even on the ground, scout, tech, and a master. We will most likely get any of those, if any in the form of ally packs and not heroes. But more hero classes would be cool.

Lets keep the prequel era out of the OT. Thanks

I just had a great idea! We can totally get a pilot character. Give the pilot character an astromech droid familiar-type piece to control. Pilots always have such great relationships with their droids and often give them unique names instead of standard identifiers (Rowdy, Whistler, Chopper, etc.). I would love to see this happen. That way we get a pilot that works on the ground while still having that connection to Star Wars pilots. Additionally, we get to see an astromech droid without making it a fully playable character (because let's be honest, I'm gonna have a hard time seeing a combat-oriented astromech and this game is going to require a lot of combat).

I would love to see the following heroes and villains as a part of Imperial Assault:

 

Wedge Antilles
Bossk
Kyle Katarn

Jaxxon (from the Marvel comics)
The crew of the Phantom - Kanan, Ezra, Zeb, Chopper, Hera and Sabine

Grand Admiral Thrawn

Greedo

Jabba Goons (like human skiff guards, Gamorreans and weequays)

Cantina thugs (like Crocker, Walrus Man and Snaggletooth)

Hero Types (Playable in Campaign):

Droid -(maybe an astromech unit or protocol droid to play an engineer type roll)

Kel Dor -bounty hunter type

Besalisk -Prospector, extra credits for crates (Angry Dwarf like character)

Ithorian- Scout type

Rodian- Scoundrel

Hutt- Scoundrel (WAY out there but come on that'd be cool)

 

Expansion Packs:

Rancor expansion pack maybe Jabba's Palace?

Tatooine: Dewbacks and Banthas

 

Allies/Empire

Kyle Katarn (Mightybedbug suggested)

Chopper (from Rebels)

Deathwatch squad w/at least one female model

Darktrooper -some type of Droid Trooper for the Empire

Hondo or a Weequay Pirate

Night Sisters.

 

 

I wonder how much "EU" we will see being that it is now "Legends"

 

 

Budgernaut: That'd be a neat Idea, I don't play the RPG but those new character card packs seem like cool characters.
