______________________________________________________________

Character Bio - Jawas were typically short rodent-like natives of Tatooine. They were passionate scavengers, seeking out technology for sale or trade in the deep deserts in their huge sandcrawler transports. A band of Jawas was responsible for locating C-3PO and R2-D2 and selling them to Luke Skywalker's uncle Owen Lars. They also had a reputation for swindling, as they had a penchant for selling old equipment such as outdated faulty droids to moisture farmers.
______________________________________________________________

-Rulings and Clarifications-
Utini: Avoiding Attacks?
Can Utini be used to move the attacked Jawa out of range, and therefore avoid the attack?
No. A figure cannot be within 5 spaces of itself. You may choose any other two Jawa within 5 spaces of the defending figure. (HoSS FAQ)

Restraining Bolt: Removing Wounds?
For Restraining Bolt, do the existing wound markers stay on the newly-controlled Droid Hero's card?
Yes. All wound markers that are on the card remain on the card. (HoSS FAQ)

When a Jawa attacks a Droid figure, add 2 dice to its attack.

RESTRAINING BOLT
If a Jawa you control inflicts enough wounds to destroy an opponent's Unique Droid Hero and at least one Jawa you control is adjacent to that Droid Hero, instead of placing wound markers on that Droid Hero's Army Card, immediately remove any Order Markers that are on that Hero's card and take control of that Droid Hero and its Army Card for the remainder of the game.

UTINI!
Before a Jawa you control rolls defense dice against a normal attack from an opponent's figure, you may move any 2 Jawas you control, that are within 5 spaces of the defending figure, up to 3 spaces each.

SCALE 2
When moving up or down levels of terrain, Jawas may add 2 to their height.

Re: The Holocron of Jawas

I know Droid = Soulborg, but does Soulborg = Droid?

Your custom probably has too much Defense.

Yep, for anything classic that refers to Soulborgs can be counted as referring to Droids and anything in HoSS that refers to Droids can be counted as referring to Soulborgs. So say hello to a nice Q9 counter .

And the Jundland Wastes Q9 versus Jawas scenario is really fun to play!

It's actually quite a weird counter, because you take control of Q9 then. So these guys with R2/3PO could be really cool. Take control of Q9 then heal him.

Re: The Holocron of Jawas

I think it would be tough for these guys to counter Q9, since they are going to have trouble penetrating his 7 defense with only 3 attack, and he'll be at least somewhat wounded if/when they do put a Restraining Bolt on him. They'd be great against Zetacron though.

Really fun design! Can't wait to look through the rest of the release.

Re: The Holocron of Jawas

Maybe I'm way off, but I don't think there is an extra comma. Here is the power without the "within 5 spaces" clause:

Before a Jawa you control rolls defense dice against a normal attack from an opponent's figure, you may move any 2 Jawas you control up to 3 spaces each.

When you insert the "within 5 space" clause, it adds an additional condition on the figures moved, so therefore it must be separated by commas:

Before a Jawa you control rolls defense dice against a normal attack from an opponent's figure, you may move any 2 Jawas you control, that are within 5 spaces of the defending figure, up to 3 spaces each.


Example: While I was walking down the street a dog, who was covered with brown fur, approached me.

Re: The Holocron of Jawas

Well, actually now that you bring it up, there are two extra commas. That clause doesn't really need to be separated from the rest of the sentence with commas. I think it's grammatically incorrect, and I know it sounds awkward.

I think if you really wanted to edit the power to match HS precedent, you should completely remove the "that are" to get:

Before a Jawa you control rolls defense dice against a normal attack from an opponent's figure, you may move any 2 Jawas you control within 5 spaces of the defending figure up to 3 spaces each.

"That are" isn't present in any other radius powers that I looked for, although my search was admittedly short.

It's not a huge deal, which is why I just made it an edit in my post.

Re: The Holocron of Jawas

BTW, you guys spelled "Utinni" incorrectly. It has two "n"s.

Speaking of which, can the power be used to move the attacked Jawa out of range, and therefore avoid the attack? The wording seems slightly vague.

I don't think we ever considered this in our testing...

My interpretation is, yes you can move the figure being attacked. However, since it is before defense dice are rolled you would still have been attacked (since the person would have already rolled the attack die).

Think of it as the Jawa gets slashed/shot at and runs away. Once a little ways away he might find out he didn't block the knife/dodge the bullet and was hit and dies (Come to think of it, that would be really funny. Vader attacks a your Jawa so you have him run away, only to find that he dies three spaces away!)

Re: The Holocron of Jawas

No, the attacked Jawa is not within clear sight of itself. You cannot move the targeted Jawa using Utini.
