Can you guys please just help clarify something?

Dark Curse says "When defending, ships attacking you cannot spend focus tokens or reroll attack dice."

That means.... Can I just check who this affects in terms of opposition lists?

Howlrunner?
Anyone assisted by Howlrunner?
Krassis Trelix?
Horton Salm?
Han Solo?

Anyone else?

Not trying to be mean, but could you clarify the question? I'm not sure what you're asking.

The Pilot Ability refers to anything that would cause someone to reroll dice, be it another Pilot Ability or something like Target Lock.

Edited.

Sorry - it's late here and I'm sitting in front of my screen trying to create the Holy Grail of squads before my brain turns completely to mush.

It also affects anyone who took the Focus or Target Lock actions and wishes to spend them in an attack.

If you mean pilot abilities only, then yes. Also obviously affects Focus and Target Lock, as briguyd points out--but not Marksmanship, the Luke crew card, or any other effect that changes dice but isn't a Focus token.

(The Marksmanship thing is important because Marksmanship+Gunner is a fairly prominent combo.)

If you want a clarification about Dark Curse special ability it means that the attacks against it cannot be rerolled. You rolled badly and you have a focus token? Too bad, you're out of luck too.

Yes, it is powerfull. A friend of mine used a target lock and had a focus token and was frustated every time he wanted to use it.

"No, no, no! This is Dark Curse! No reroll and the eyes are misses too!"

Howlrunner cannot help you. Her ability permits a reroll but can't trumps can.

Too bad, Krassis Trelix. No reroll for you.

Same goes for you, Horton Salm. YOU CANNOT REROLL!!

Out of luck, Han Solo! I said: NO REROLL!!!

Anyone else? Guess what? NO REROLL!

Markmanship is not a focus even though it acts much like one.

Luke and the gunner crew on the Falcon don't reroll, they make a new attack if you don't hit.

A Falcon Pilot (Han, Chewie, Lando) with Gunner and marksmanship takes care of Dark Curse pretty handily (even with a stealth device), as my sons discovered this evening.
