Hi all,

Just playing "Rebel Saboteurs" side mission and one mission trigger/event does something when the door is opened.

Can the Imperial Player trigger this event when he opens the door? From the flavor text it wouldn't make sense but then again flavor text normally doesn't do anything rule-wise. Or does he just open the door without an effect?

Thanks,
Markus

The trigger does not care who opens the door, only that it opens.

In Target of Opportunity you would need to wait until the door has been unlocked. In Armed and Operational the door is not locked, so any figure that can interact can open the door.

Yeah, there are plenty of missions where the Imps are trying to complete an objective. The Rebels don't get to have all the fun!

A lot of times the mission rules will state that imperial figures can't interact with doors to prevent this from happening.

Not in those words though.

Doors are locked. Rebel figures can interact with doors (attribute test) to open them.

(In most missions the imperial player cannot trigger events. In missions it is possible, at least it takes an imperial action and saves rebels an action, so it isn't free for the imperial player.)

Thanks, guys! This was our ruling in the end, even though we (=the rebel players) hated it ;-)
