Palpatine Darth Sidious Power Action

Recommended Posts

Play an event from your hand, decreasing its cost by the number of different damage symbols showing on your dice.

 

The card says different damage symbols so I interpreted it as I needed at least 2 damage symbols on my dice to use the power action. However whenever I have seen people playing him they sometimes only use the one damage symbol.

Actually that brings up something I was wondering about

Can you power action through Running Interference or is it still considered as if normally playing a card from your hand?

Instead of taking the 'Play a card' action, you are taking Palpatine's power action, so I would assume it would go through Running Interference.

Yes it does,

Running Interference prevents the specific action. The action denied was "play a card" so instead you opt for "Action on a card" - the fact that action tells you to play a card is irrelevant, it wasnt an action to play the card.
Its the same reason why RI cant be used to block dice resolves via Fast Hands - that wasnt an action, so its not "after performing an action" to satisfy RI.

Ive done this with Hit and Run several times, opponent blocks Activate a Character or Support action - ok...play Hit and Run "Ambush, activate one of your red characters" i played a card for my action so RI does nothing.

That's fun, good to know

Though I don't think he's very good, I've been really enjoying Palp with one die Phasma opening up

E-11 (3 damage sides, 2 damage types, redeploy)

Dh-17 (3 damage sides)

Ziot Baton (very high chance of melee, redeploy) 

Leadership + Best Defense

And Mobilze + Law @ Order (love this card) as my two high cost events. Don't really want more as mostly Palp just generates one "resource" reliably 

One die Phasma isn't the best but she's surprisingly decent with a bunch of redeployed weapons

Also the image of Palp packing heat is pure gold. Who needs lightning when you have a good blaster by your side?

That one tends to be resource starved and the 2cost is the main reason LoP isnt used. For that price, you could get a number of melee/ranged weapons to buff your melee/ranged character better.

Lonepalp kinda needs his resources. Youn..ger palp actually enables high resource gain since he can Power Action Mobility, which is easy to atleast get a 2cost reduction to be pay1 get4 resources (if not straight up free). On that note im trying palp w/ a 1die Lobot for a resource-heavy Force Rend idea...havnt tried it yet but i think i'll work lol.

I'm playing Palp2 with Talzin now.  It's a variation of Thrawn Talzin, with Palp's power action replacing the 2 resource that Thrawn brings, and supplementing with more damage sides on character dice than Thrawn Talzin brings.  2 or 3 cost Rise Again is nice, too.  Plays very much the same with, but with less brain drain since you don't have Thrawn's ability added in.
