Post subject:  What new characters would you like to see

OK there have been a lot of discussion about what a virtual set in the fall may look like. Use this thread to voice who you would like to see in it. Could be an existing mini with a new stat card. Could be a new mini you have waiting to see.

I must say I really like what I am hearing from the community in regards to taking non-unique minis and making a unique stat card for them, since we all know a ton of non-uniques were based off unique characters.

Hello all! I think we can take a step as a community to get more involved in the development of this game. I hear a lot of talk from a few people on other sites that Gamers will have a few people deciding everything and the larger community will have to just deal with it. That’s just not true. If we members of the larger community want to get involved, we need to do it in a way efficient enough where the busy volunteers who will be doing much of the designing and event planning need not spend hours upon hours sifting through posts to find the input they want. Without specifically-made threads, there might be a thread that has some people saying a mini they want, others saying some stats they want to see, while still others say how something should be re-costed, all in a confusing (but interesting and valid in its own right) mess. We need to help the designers help us! That’s why I’m starting this thread, to see what minis YOU would like to see. This thread isn’t intended to discuss special abilities or new costs, or how the community will be involved in designing some pieces that they will have some input on.
It’s to see what mini’s you want to see. The likely course of action, as has been described in other threads, is:
1: to take an existing mini (example Luke Skywalker, Rebel)
2: Make an ALTERNATE card for it (with new abilities, stats, cost, etc.), so that the old card or the new card can be used, whichever the player want to use in their squad, much like picking between Luke Skywalker, Jedi, or Luke Skywalker, Hero of Yavin nowadays, for example.

This is the info I am going for:
10-15 minis (can be only 1 or 2 if you want, don’t feel like you need 10, more than 15 if you really have some ideas you'd like to get across)
For each one:
Name of a (preferably) Unique mini you would like an alternate card for.
OR:
Name of a non-unique mini that you would like to see made with a Unique alternate card (for example, Echani Handmaiden (Brianna)) Please list the Mini, and then next to it, have the unique you want to see.

It would be preferable to request that minis from the older sets get alternates, but I will still record the newer ones if you put them.

Don’t be afraid to put names that other people have already put; I will keep track of how many times each alternate is requested, so it will be easier to see how many want a certain piece with an alternate.

To make things more efficient, Please don’t
-Put stats (for another thread, another time)
-Name characters that you don’t have a mini to represent (for example, there is nothing we have that we could stretch to represent a Space Slug)
-Post anything other than your list of minis, if you can help it.
-Post a Unique mini that is currently competitive (Like R2-D2 from RS) (But a competitive Non-unique that you want to see into a Unique is cool)

Even if you only have 1 mini you want to have an alternate cost please post it! If we want the designers to see what we want, we need to make it as easy for them as possible.

If you could, please look at the next post for my list; the closer you format your list to mine the easier it will be for me. Thanks. :)

VERY VERY GOOD POINT! LoL, I'd want it so I could recreate the battle of Ruusan...

Post subject:  Re: What characters in a virtual set

Well, before everyone starts throwing out stats left and right, should we try to organize this idea of "virtual sets"? First determine how many characters are in it, the rarity distribution, faction distribution, etc. Then, we could start taking ideas for which characters will be in it, and finally proceed to make them. (Helps keep all these ideas from creating a chaotic thread)

Post subject:  Re: What characters in a virtual set

Personally I think we should put down names, and save stats for another time. Just Ease into this a bit with just some general idea of characters we want before we dive into the stats we want to use.

Author:  Roque Saber [ Sun Jan 31, 2010 2:14 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: What characters in a virtual set

Well of course. I'm just advising that before we even put down names, we get ourselves organized so we know what needs to be done and how it needs to be done before we get bogged down in a heap of ideas.

Post subject:  Re: What characters in a virtual set

Everyone must also remember that a virtual set is not the #1 priority right now. That priority is to make sure Regionals and then GenCon. Dean has stated a virtual set will come out after GenCon is said and done, which makes it late August/early September. So we have loads of time to just talk over what will be in it. Suggestions never hurt, neither do suggestions on new SA/FP.

Guys if I can make a suggestion for the moment.

When you make your suggestion just give us names.

If they are not widely known maybe give us a little blurb about who the character is.

Remember non uniques are going to be needed too.

Right now lets avoid giving a ton of stats.

Lord Hoth- Brilliant Tactical mind and General for the Jedi's Army Of Light fighting against Kaan's Brotherhood of Darkness. A brutal yet cunning warrior, eventually giving his life to end Kaan's army.

Lord Kaan-Leader of the Brotherhood of Darkness, charismatic Leader, and very adept at using Battle meditation.

Darth Zannah- Apprentice of Darth Bane, skilled in Makashi and Soresu fighting style, expert in Sith Sorcery.

Post subject:  Re: What characters in a virtual set

The main piece I want:
Jodo Kast (Boba Fett imposter who used Fett's fear to get his way as a Bounty Hunter and collect bounties. Fett eventually finds out and takes him down by poisoning him. So possibly give him a weakness to poison like "Abilities used against this character containing the word Poison deal and extra 10 Damage."

Other ideas:
Jaina, Sword of the Jedi (Mando Affinity)
Jacen Solo (when he was leading the GA right before he turned into Darth Caedus)

I think I'm in love...... :shock:

Ben Skywalker from the same era, being trained by Jacen so maybe rapport?

Post subject:  Re: Minis YOU want to see: The first step

#1 Carth Onasi (updated to not suck)
#2 Ganner Rhysode with a NR movement breaker of some kind. Example: None Shall Pass. Enimies that start their turn adjacent to this character may not move away. And give him parry to keep him alive.
#3 Darth Maul with a defensive power like block seeing as he dueled 2 jedi at the same time i think he should be able to block 1 or 2 hits for crying out load.
#4 Playable Darth Revan. I like the one in the holocron's lost 20 that lets you choose to activate 1-2-or 3 that would make sith awesome to play something like that would work.
#5 Ben Skywalker. With some kind of cheap tech for NR like Flo walking or force meld that would be cool.
#6 Darth Sion (updated with jedi hunter and better attack)
#7 Nomi Sunrider, Jedi Master. (updated Nomi)
#8 Cassus Fett. Good Mandalorian CE of some kind please not mobile and evade.
#9 Vaders Apprentice (updated with new Force powers and affinity for rebels and imperials)
#10 Sora Bulq.
