Transmit Orders (basic version) - Allies' commander effects apply to Droids. (T-Series Tactical Droid)

Transmit Orders (more powerful variant) - Allies' commander effects apply to Droids. Commander Effects normally limited to 6 squares have unlimited range when applied to Droids. (T-Series Tactical Droid)

I know theses are not new SA's but i would like to see more characters with reserves 20 or 30, I would like each faction that does not have it yet to have this.

Along those lines, that's another reason for more low-cost figures... so you can make better use of reserves/reinforcements without wasting space. For example, I'd love to use Garm to bring in an ERC and an Ithorian Commander to the New Republic, but you're wasting 3 cost to do it. A 3-point Rebel or New Republic piece could fill that hole.

Shien Style: (When this character is hit by a non-adjacent attack he takes no damage on a save of 11. On a save of 16 or higher the attack is redirected on the Attacker.) This one could be fun its a tough save to make for the 16 or higher and would be just a fun thing to use IMO. This would go well on like a Vader Apprentice or something.

Jar"kai Style (When hit by a melee attack this character takes no damage on a save of 11. On a save of 16 or higher this character may make an immediate counter attack on the attacker.) Kind of combines Djem so and Makashi again save 16s are hard to come by so its not too crazy. Good for a Sora Bulk.

Unorthadox (abilities used to resist this characters attacks or abilities that requiere a save of 11 instead require a save of 16). Remake of Grevious JH.

More Impulsive abilities such as, Flurry, speed 8, parry, deadly, or something like that would be fun.

Stun Saber (Enemies hit by this characters attack are considered activated. Save 11). Fun idea put that on like a youngling in lightsaber training.

SA: 'Harsh Discipline'

- Choose one ally who's name contains Death Watch and add 10 damage to that character. For the rest of the skirmish that ally and all other allies named Death Watch lose Internal Strife -

Character: Pre Visla (perhaps using the Jango Fett clone strike piece as his mini)


See the 'New Commander Effects you want' thread, page 4 or 5 for my idea on a commander effect for "Pre Visla" along with the custom characters thread for my take on what he should look like altogether :)

This would make the Death Watch Raider a much more appealing piece to use and since there aren't many pieces for the Mando Faction they really could use something that helps diversify their choices in squad builds. To me Visla would have to be a stronger commander in the 30 - 40 cost range.

Lightsaber Style Mastery: At the start of this character's turn, it gains one of the following lightsaber styles until it's next activation (Niman Style, Makashi Style, Soresu Style, Ataru Style, Djem So Style, Shii Cho Style). - Cin Drallig, Kreia

It would take a lot of card space, but it would be interesting.

Crack Shot - Damage from this character's attacks cannot be prevented.

Would be a good CE for the Mandos or for a few select BH's (Boba, Jango, Aurra Sing)...

I think I'll elaborate on 2 abilities I mentioned in the disruptive thread among other things. Also I have not read every last ability listed here, most but not all so Hopefully I am not repeating anything, please point out if I am though. Also please forgive any poor wording hehe.


Karmic Disruptive - If the initiative roll is an even number Disruptive works normally, if the roll is odd then limited to 3 squares - Zayne Carrick, OR Faction

Indomitable - Enemies within 6 squares get -4 attack and -4 defense - Mandalore, a generic strong commander for the faction or Mandalore the Indomitable

Intimidation - Enemies within 6 squares get -2 defense and -2 defense- Generic Mandalorian, Generic Sith

Let the Wookiee Win - +4 attack and +10 damage against characters with Dejarik - New Chewbacca

War Criminal - This character does not recognize the Diplomat ability, characters with Diplomat are legal targets - I'd like to see this on a unique figure as a unique ability and would choose from either Aurra Sing, Count Dooku, or Cad Bane who we did see shoot a senator. In Theory it would be good on any BH character I'd like to see it on one of the above named just to have a new aspect to such characters.

Con Artist - Range 2, Replace Attacks, The target character has been persuaded into a cease fire and is conisdered activated. Optional save 11 negates this effect, but on a failure the character is conned into joining the opponents squad. - new Lando Calrissian or Marn "Gryph" Hierogryph and this is based off what the Imp Inquisitor does, I like the concept.

Sensory Data - This character is subject to enemy Commander Effects off mouse enemy mouse droids. - Aurra Sing the idea being based off her antenna and integrated cybernetics. It would certainly be interesting and I am unsure what limitations to put it on it as well.

Vibro Blade Knuckles - Replace Attacks, 20 damage to adjacent target, counts as a Melee Attack. - Clone Commando. Nice direct damage for close encounters. And If I worded it right making it able to be countered by parry or lightsaber block/defense so that it is not over powered.

Illegal Gambling - Dejarik allies gain +2 attack and +10 damage while within 6 squares - Lady Valarian, nice boost to Dejarik pieces

Criminal Vendetta - Bounty Hunter Allies gain +4 attack against enemies in a squad with Jabba the Hutt, this includes Jabba the Hutt - Lady Valarian for their rivalry. This ability and Illegal Gambling might work as CE's but I consider them eligible as abilities like Fire Control.

Falleen Legacy - +4 attack against enemies in a squad with Darth Vader, this includes Darth Vader - Generic Falleen or Prince Xizor for Vaders Massacre of the Falleen.

Gray Paladin - When hit by a non-melee attack, this character takes no damage with a save of 11 - Laranth Tarak, basically a better evade representing her ability to shoot and redirect blaster fire. Arguable to be a force power but I find it more fitting as a base ability for her or any other characters of the variety.

Criminal Inspiration - +10 damage while an ally with the Black Sun ability, or Black Sun in their name is within 6 squares - Generic Fringe, maybe give this to a few pieces just to get more synergy out of Vigos or the other Black Sun pieces, more options I guess.

Look Sir, Droids - +2 attack and +10 damage to enemy droid characters - Elite Sandtrooper

Solo Family Bodyguard - If an adjacent ally whose name contains either Leia or Solo would take damage from an attack, this character can take the damage instead - Winter

Scavenged Grenades 30 - Replaces attacks; range 6, Make a save of 11, on a success, 30 damage to target and to each character adjacent to that target; save 11. On failure this character takes 10 damage. - Jawa Tinkerer, I think this would be a fun luck based ability to show the Jawas scavenger aspect more. and maybe a way to get the cost down on a more powerful bomb. Grenades gone bad? only one way to find out LOL...

and I guess I am out of ideas. Most of these are just simple mechanics, or extra stuff I think would be fun. Abilities I'd like to see in general, or stuff I think gives the game a new aspect or strategy for some factions or situations.

I was reading someone else post, JediSpyder I think, and it led me to an Idea for a new special ability for the sith.


If this character has not used a FP, ignore Jedi Hunter Special Ability or attacks that grants bonuses against force users.


I was thinking about how many times Palpatine was infront of Jedi and nobody realized he was a force user or Zannah infiltrating the Jedi Temple and Library and nobody noticed them.

A New Rule!
Characters with Sith in their name are considered Sith for the purposes of squad building.

I dont think it would be drastic to do, it would give Sith a better option.

Eject, For unique Snowspeeders or simular things.

Eject when this character is defeated you can replace it with a ******* pilot/trooper ( such as a Rebel Pilot or a Imperial Pilot) with a save of 11. Or even unique characters if it a very high cost Snowspeeder or Tie Crawler.
I think this would suit a Wedge in Snowspeeder at around 60 points, in this case you would use a version of wedge as the pilot or baron Fel as a unique Imperial Pilot.

Needs better wording than i have used i know, but i think this might make some of the huge usable if done correctly.

I want to thank you all for posting your ideas. The designers are working hard at putting together the virtual set and are keeping the ideas in mind that you, the community, have presented.

So, thanks again for your help
