Maarek Stele and the force

Recommended Posts

Being a force user is not the same as being force sensitive. Many pilots may be force sensitive, but are not skilled or powerful enough to actually use the force.

Maarek is one example of that. He is force sensitive, but he doesn't actually use the force to perform tricks, maybe because he is untrained, or maybe because he's not powerful enough. It seems that FFG considered that force sensitive pilots are not worthy of force points in game mechanics.

As another example, Ezra Bridger is an active and quite competent force user, and despite so, he still gets a simple 1 force score. Likewise, "the force is strong with" Luke, and still, he scores a 2.

However, maybe there are upgrades in 2.0 that we don't know yet that allow pilots to get/increase their force score, such as "Midichlorian Sandwich: Increase your force score by one"... or the like.

Nope, icons on the cards don’t change, just the pricing and upgrade slots.  So maybe hope for Stele on the Defender?

 

 

I never thought Stele used the force, he just had cool force tattoos and was part of an inner circle of the emperor’s special  dudes.  He was an awesome pilot, and probably used the force in the same way Soontir or Han would, unconsciously no where near what force tokens would allow him to do.

 

also BoShek better add a force like Vader, Luke, Palpy etc.

Right now there stance seems to be to only give force-points to characters who where properly trained. Which is a good thing, because if they gave force-points to anyone who turned out to be force-sensitive in legends way to many people would have it.

Emperor Palpatine itself is an upgrade that increases by 1 the force rating of the base ship.

Assuming that there is a Lambda pilot (for example) that has force rating 2, Equipping Palpatine would increase it to 3.

Why are we assuming any Lambda pilots will have force ratings?

properly trained?  I’m pretty sure the Red 5 Luke has had about 30 seconds of ‘training’ with Ben Kenobi to gain those force tokens.  Li’l Ani would most likely get 2 force tokens just for being the chosen one.

the problem with legends generating force points for characters is that the Imps will probably be short changed compared to the Rebel Scum, but as long as the Inquisitor and Mara are still present they might have a chance.

 

Known rebel force users:

Luke (2 pips pilot, 1 pip crew)

Ezra (2 pips pilot), crew unknown 

Ashoka

Corran

Leia crew

Kannan (pilot and Crew)

Kyle (pilot and crew)

 

scum:

Boshek

Ventress

GONK (well ok no, but I wouldn’t be surprised)

probably a lot I forgot or don’t know.  

 

 

Even doubling this list won’t give you 20% pilots and crew having force tokens.  And that’s a good thing
