R'kik looks pretty neat! I like the scavenger ability. It's thematic and useful!

 

Seems pretty balanced - he's got powerful surge abilities, but low range, damage, and mobility.

 

Not sure about the +1 surge though. His surge abilities are super strong, and he already rolls a lot of surges. Might be a bit overbearing. Though he is really slow, so maybe not. Maybe give him 4 HP and + 1 evade instead of the +1 surge, because he's slippery?

 

You are probably right.  I used R2 as a template but with R'kik having green/yellow he's going to produce more surges than R2 so the guaranteed surge is likely too much.  Changing that out for +1 <evade> is a great idea.

 

I'm still on the fence about Pierce 2.  I do not want him to be a big damage dealer but he has to get damage to stick to use his surges.  I'm wondering if dropping his dice to yellow/yellow and upping him to +2 accuracy might be a better idea.

I think Pierce 2 is probably fine; against normal defenses he'll only do 1-2 damage on average, and if he's spending a surge on the pierce it's one less surge he can spend on attacks. Even with the +1 Acc, he's pretty unreliable when it comes to Accuracy, so you can afford to give him a little more power on his attack I think.

Is it wrong that I want to give him a power that allows him to use Jundland Terror? :lol:

Haha that'd be funny. The "Desert Dweller" power or something. :D

Here, two versions of a figure for an expansion that will never exist. Still fun to imagine and come up with stuff.

For Reference: I have never played skirmish mode. I haven't been keeping up with FFG's changes to how some of the special abilities work. Based on the bit of campaign I've managed to get a group together for, this is my first rendition of how I would imagine this character playing out in either mode.

Okay, here's my attempt at a hero. I was thinking it'd be cool to have a martial artist who doesn't use weapons in the game, and I tried to make his abilities have a pretty clear offense/defense duality at most levels.

Abilities might be totally overpowered/underpowered/poorly-costed/uninteresting so feedback is appreciated!

 

 

Martial Artist (unnamed)

Ability 1: Unarmed Strike: → : Move up to one space, then perform a melee attack using your Insight pool. You may use Unarmed Strike more than once per activation.

Ability 2: Balanced: While defending, you may convert 1 Block result to one Evade result or one Evade result to one Block result. (Lost when wounded)

Ability 3: Monk’s Vow: You may not equip Weapon cards.

 

Attributes: (Wounded)
HP: 12
END: 5  (4)
SPEED: 4  (3)

DEF: W

STR: BG  ( BR )
INS: GY  ( GB )
TECH: B  ( R )

 

Class Cards:
0XP: Roundhouse Kick: 1 Strain - Exhaust this card when you declare an melee attack. The attack gains Reach and ~ +1 Damage |  ~ Weaken
1XP: Commanding Presence: 2 Strain - Exhaust this card to test INS. For each success, you may push a small figure within 3 spaces 1 space.
1XP: Iron Defense: While defending, if you do not roll a Block, add 1 Block to the defense results.
       “Come on, hit me!”
2XP: High Ground: While attacking, if the defender is in a space containing difficult terrain or you are in a space containing a Crate or Terminal, apply +1 Damage to the attack results. The attack gains ~ Stun.
2XP: Worth Fighting For: Exhaust this card when a friendly figure in your line of sight is defeated. You recover 2 Strain.
       “We must continue to fight!”
3XP: Inspiring Confidence: +2 Health | Whenever you rest, choose up to two friendly figures within 2 spaces who have suffered at least 1 Strain. Each of those figures recovers 1 Strain.
       “Do not let fear cloud your mind.”
3XP, 800 Credits: Ancient Texts: Equipment: At the start of each round, choose one attack die. Add that die to your Insight pool during this round. When you use Unarmed Strike, the attack gains ~ +2 Damage
       “The art of unarmed combat has old - and well-guarded - secrets.”
4XP: Flurry of Blows: 2 Strain → Perform 4 melee attacks, each using your STR pool. Each attack gains Pierce 1 | ~ +1 Damage.
4XP: Blinding Speed: Apply +1 Speed to your hero. Deplete this card while defending to apply +1 dodge to the defense results. After the attack resolves, gain 4 movement points and become Hidden.
       “The best way to block an attack is to simply not be there.”
Reward: Bagh Naka: Equipment: When you declare an attack, apply Pierce 1 to the attack results. Exhaust this card while defending to apply +1 block to the defense results.
       “A vicious set of claws useful for both attack and defense.”

Jodo Kast v2

 

Time for a second attempt at this character. My first attempt was pretty boring and not thematic with the character. I think this version is a bit more thematic. Kast paraded around as Boba Fett, until Fett found out and put him down. So this version of Kast is good against little guys, but once the big players show up he can't do as much. He's a chump who can do work until he get's put in his place. 

 

 

Jodo Kast
Mercenary
Hunter
Cost: 6

+Block | Mobile | ~Weaken | ~Pierce 1

→ Opportunistic: When attacking a figure with a figure cost of 5 or less, apply +~ to the attack results.

Imposter: At the start of each mission, choose one enemy group. Until that group deals damage to you, you may use that group's surge abilities.

Health: 9
Speed: 5
Defense: B
Attack: GB

 

 

 

 

Alternatively, the Imposter ability could read like this: 

 

At the start of each mission, choose one enemy group. If you have suffered 3 or fewer damage, you may use that group's surge abilities.
