As much as I am digging this game, I'd like to see more alien heroes - the rebellion after all consisted of pretty much any being who wanted to join up, while the Empire looked down on any species other than humans.

Out of the core set we've got a pretty good mix, three human heroes and a wookie, bothan and twi'lek. But the next expansion adds two more human heroes. And of course the saboteurs are Duros.

There are so many cool alien races in Star Wars. And since these heroes are being created from scratch FFG's designers can do almost anything they want. I'd love to see a Rodian, Gammorean, Zabrek or Mon Calamari hero. A Jawa hero would be, like, pretty much the greatest thing ever, although that's fairly unlikely. But they can't all be unscrupulous scavenging shysters, can they?

I'd love to see a playable Mon Cal or Kel Dor. Could be AWESOME!

Then again, I play Imperial, so I'd be able to shoot at all those races unworthy of sharing in my glorious empire.

The ultimate rebel hero would be Ewok...with the ability: "Cuteness: Adjacent enemy cuddles Ewok. Ewok suffers one wound. Enemy heals one wound."

As long as him and his droid partner doesn't live in Indiana, then they wouldn't be able to get service at any restaurants.

Too soon?

!!?!?

It's clear that anyone who touches an ewok dies a horrible death. See Battle of Endor.

Ewoks would get "[Surge]: If this attack is against an Imperial Trooper, cancel all defense dice and add 30 hits to the results. Then, if the target isn't defeated, removed it from the board and burn it's deployment card."

These E-wok special abilities to a long way toward explaining the benefits of a 3PO all figure.

Action: Command all E-wok figures that have LOS to this figure. E-wok figures gain one action that may be a move, attack, or steal up to two combat dice from the Imperial player.

Definitely, but I think it will be up to us fans to create it, like this:

Enough with your ewok, rodian, calamari jibber jabber. I have one word for you: Ithorian.

Mic drop.

It feels like a really safe bet that we'll get rancors. Wampas seem pretty likely too.

...probably not as heroes, though.

if D2E is any guidance, we will see a lot of heroes for IA

i would love the possibility for having a rebel overlord or even a scum overlord, each with their own campaign missions.
maybe even an interactive campaign with an overlord and heroes for each side competing against each other.

a 4 to 10 players campaign (2 OL and 2 teams). these ideas are getting even more awesome.

Adding a Jawa hero would be crap. A Jawa bounty hunter crew would be fun though. What race was that fellow who was co-pilot on the Falcon with Lando in the Battle of Endor? One of him might work. I'd also like to see a Tunroth Hunter somewhere.

I think an Imperial or Scum and Villainy campaign would be very cool!
