Missing silhouette data for creatures?

Recommended Posts

(Maybe the information is available somewhere here, but my search-fu has not revealed anything useful ...)

The only FFG SW rulebook that I currently have is the FaD core rulebook. While looking through the Adversaries section, I noticed that several Creatures are missing their Silhouette data: kaaten, maalraa, and vornskr. Can anyone tell me what their Silhouette values are, or at least point me to where I can find them, please?

I don't have their descriptions in front of me, but I would assume Silhouette 1 unless otherwise noted.

Yep. Unless otherwise stated, they're Silhouette 1.

The general rule of thumb in this game is that the stat block says otherwise, it's silhouette 1.  So for the creatures you list, since nothing in their stat block says otherwise, they're all silhouette 1, same as the vast majority of player-character species.

Admittedly, there's occasional examples of things that probably should have a silhouette other than 1 (Astromech droids being one instance, as those are generally only a meter tall and thus would better fit as being silhouette 0), but as the GM you're free to change those silhouettes to suit the needs of your game.

By the way, I just noticed in the FaD CRB (p. 219) that astromech droids are specifically called out as being silhouette 0.

Maybe I have a second printing/edition of FaD? It seems as though many of the errata have been applied. I was wondering if Product Code on the credits page could tell me that (it's SWF02).  E.T.A.: I discovered that the SWF01 product code refers to the FaD Beginner Game, not to the first printing of the FaD CRB.

I did some more research

That's a case of the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing. It's been a persistent oversight forever, so I'd either ignore it (a case could be made that astromechs are bulky enough to count as sil1) or applied. Your choice, as it won't really make much difference.

With Astromech droids, I was referring to their stat blocks in Adversary chapter of both the Age of Rebellion (page 428) and Edge of the Empire (page 410) core rule books, neither of which have the silhouette 0 tag.

Each of the three books has the silhouette comparison chart, and all of them list astromech droids, but I doubt said chart also wasn't written with the idea of it being a hard and fast rule as for silhouette of all the things.
