Droid Variants

Today I thought it might be more fun to give some alternative droid models that you can choose to build with and get their additional stats.

Iron Knight

The Iron Knights are technically Force-sesntive crystals that use Juggernaut wardroid bodies to move and interact. They are capable of taking Force careers and powers.

  • Wound Threshold: 10
  • Strain Threshold: 10

  • Skills: None

Geth

The Geth are a hivemind, synthetic, race from Mass Effect and are accomplished slicers.

  • Brawn: 1, Agility: 1, Intellect: 1, Cunning: 1, Willpower: 1, Presence: 1
  • Wound Threshold: 10
  • Strain Threshold: 10
  • Starting XP: 170

IG-100 Magnaguard

The Magnaguards were the elite guards of General Grievous and excelled in combat.

  • Strain Threshold: 10
  • Starting XP: 100

Astromech

Astromechs come in a variety of forms and are useful in many situations. Unfortunately they do not have proper hands or feet making them unable to interact like a normal humanoid. They cannot jump without rockets or cables and they cannot hold weapons in their hand. Their abilities help to make up for this though. Astromechs are very commonplace and so astromech players may be given bonuses for blending in but may also face challenges of being considered disposable.

  • Brawn: 1, Agility: 1, Intellect: 1, Cunning: 1, Willpower: 1, Presence: 1
  • Wound Threshold: 10
  • Strain Threshold: 10
  • Starting XP: 160
  • Skills: Computers 2
  • Talents: None
  • Special Abilities: Begin with 1 free cybernetic weapon implant found on page 174 in the Edge of the Empire Core Rulebook. Astromechs always count as having slicing gear on them.

2-1B Surgical Droid

A classic droid found in Star Wars, these droids are excellent medics but only possess one usable arm, the other being covered in surgical tools.

  • Brawn: 1, Agility: 1, Intellect: 2, Cunning: 1, Willpower: 1, Presence: 1
  • Wound Threshold: 10
  • Strain Threshold: 10
  • Starting XP: 125
  • Skills: Medicine 1
  • Talents: Surgeon 1
  • Special Abilities: These droids always count as having the right tools for the job when performing medicine checks.
