Future Playable Characters Wishlist

Recommended Posts

Now that we know who's playable in the core box from the Adepticon demo (Han, Lando, Fett, Aphra, Jyn, Bossk, IG-88, Ketsu), who would you love to see in an inevitable FFG expansion? Here's my list of 8, made up largely of characters who are currently confirmed as crew members already in the base game (if used to play as then you'd remove their relevant cards from the decks):

1) Zuckuss/4-Lom: Zuckuss would be the main character while 4-LOM would be a starting crew member as these two are pretty inseparable. Zuckuss' ship Mist Hunter would be a new upgrade option for the starter G-1A ship. Zuckuss isn't going to have great character stats (probably just a single skill), which is made up for by the fact that his starter ship is upgradeable and he begins with a crew member.

2) Dengar: While he's confirmed as an encounter card in Outer Rim, it's unconfirmed if he's a possible crew member to recruit, so unknown what his abilities would be. His addition would bring the Jumpmaster 5000 ship to the game, upgradeable into Punishing One.

3) Greedo: confirmed as a possible crew member, unique skill would be to add 1 hit in ground combat. Never really has had a unique ship to himself (the Manka Hunter never flew), probably wouldn't add a new ship to the game.

4) Aurra Sing: unconfirmed if she's in Outer Rim at all, so unknown what possible skill she could have aside from being focused around combat. Most likely wouldn't add a new ship either as her blockade runner is probably too big to consider, haha.

5) Hera Syndulla: confirmed as a possible crew member, unique skill would match her ability to gain free movement based on a tech check. Starting skills would be Piloting and Tech, upgrading her would give a 2nd Piloting skill (allows Focus rolls to count in Piloting tests). Definitely starts out with negative Imperial status, possibly positive Rebel status. Would obviously add the VCX-100 ship, upgrading into the Ghost. Would also add Chopper to the game as a possible crew member if he already isn't one, no other Specters though.

6) Hondo Onaka: confirmed as a possible crew member, innate ability to gain 2,000 more credits on cargo missions. Only skill is Influence however to balance this out. Probably won't add a new ship to the game as he no longer has his pirate saucer by this time.

7) Tobias Beckett: unconfirmed if he's even in Outer Rim, but he's a proper scoundrel to add. Most likely specialize in Stealth and Influence. Wouldn't add a new ship to the game as he's not known to have a unique one.

😎 Enfys Nest: unconfirmed if she's in Outer Rim, but a proper pirate figure from Solo movie. Skill would definitely include Tactics, start with negative Syndicate status. Wouldn't add a new ship to the game as her gang used a carrier of some kind for their swoop bikes.

Those are just mine, what about everyone else?

Dash Rendar and Prince Xizor's Black Sun!

With most of the main "Fringe" characters already in the game I'm not sure what direction they could go if they were planning an expansion. The only thing that comes to mind would be characters that are more heavily involved with the Rebels/Imperials. Kallus, Kanan Jarrus, Sabine Wren all come to mind, provided that they are not already in the game. Maybe Cad Bane if he was still alive? It's a hard call.

Otherwise as you alluded, converting characters with encounters/crew abilities into playable characters and then adding more crew encounters. I just don't see any expansion being more than a "more stuff" expansion if they even can plan one with this game. Now that might not be a bad thing, but I think it will be a long time before we hear of it.

I think you're right about a Mandalorian expansion if there are going to be expansions. OMG Yes to Talon Karde and Mara Jade, if only!

Aye, I would LOVE to see those old characters, along with Dash Rendar, but FFG most likely can’t touch any of the Legacy materials after Disney retconned the entire EU... ;_;

The Outrider has a one second cameo in A New Hope, that's canon enough for me! ;)

Both are dead, considering that the older versions of han and Lando that we see in the game are older than in Solo the film. They look more like Billy dee Williams and Harrison Ford, so...
