Jump Boots, Jetpacks and Personal Scale Talents

Recommended Posts

Jump Boots and Jet Packs in their descriptions state that when being used to treat the character as a vehicle. Does this stop the character from using personal scale talents when flying/jumping about? To me this makes sense for some talents but other talents it seems the added mobility would make the skill easier not harder such as dodge or side step. Furthermore it does not seem using either of these would stop the character from gaining the benefits of talents such as defensive stance or reflect/parry. Following the RAW it would probably be a flat no as you are treated as a vehicle but I imagine a lot of the time it would be better if this instead becomes GM discretion as to what talents can and can't be used in the specific situation.

I sent a similar question to the developers a while back but have not got a response as of yet so I was wondering if anyone on the forum has an opinion on the matter.

I don't treat them as being different for any purposes beyond they clearly have more mobility and the ability to disregard difficult terrain. That's pretty much it.  It really isn't clearly spelled out, and I thought during the Soldier book playtest that would have been a great place for a spec and rules concerning it.  Perhaps at some point in the future if they were to do a Madalorian universal spec focused in part on small sil vehilces ie, speeder bikes and jetpacks, it can be addressed.

Or maybe an updated Driver Tree for Explorer, If I were to put small vehicle rules in any book it would have been that one. Slightly off topic but it is sad that a lot of the Explorer stuff feels the most outdated, the curse of being the first career book... It would be great in my opinion if eventually they went back and updated some of the older trees and things a little, like actually giving the Hired Gun bodyguard tree supreme bodyguard.
