Re: The Holocron of Chewbacca

Ah, okay.

It might have been sufficient to leave that last sentence off. I can see though where there was the desire to create clarity, but I think it is also possible to understand it that there is a normal attack, then Wookiee Rage allows another attack and another, as long as Wookiee Rage doesn't cause an attack more than twice (which it wouldn't, just the additional two times).

Thanks!

Re: The Holocron of Chewbacca

What was the reasoning behind not having Bowcaster work if he moves? Gameplay-wise, it generally works (I find it to be terribly annoying sometimes), but thematically, I can't imagine it too well. It's basically his rifle and he can't walk and shoot at the same time? The result is a Wookiee who runs around attacking people with... what? His claws? Is Chewie a Madclaw??

Wookiees are brawlers, sure, but I don't understand how the decision was made thematically to not have him be able to walk and shoot.

Walking carpets have trouble taking careful aim while moving.


It was a trade-off for the range and power level of Bowcaster. Rolling 5 dice from 7 spaces - with a special attack that bypasses some defensive powers - is pretty potent. You are probably going to drag Chewie along with another high-value hero, using Life Debt, so you likely won't have to use any OMs to get him into position. It does complicate OM placement deciding which turn will be the best to let Chewie go for the big shot.

Re: The Holocron of Chewbacca

Okay, thanks.

He truly is the go-to guy for taking apart enemy AT-STs with that special attack.


I was also wondering where the idea came from to be able to attack squad figures a second time. That's an interesting, but somewhat limited in its usefulness, idea. I can imagine it shining at its best against Classic figures like the Sentinals of Jandar or high-defense figures, but haven't had it happen too often in HoSS.

Re: The Holocron of Chewbacca

It is useful during those times where somehow Chewie wiffs his attack roll. It's frustrating to me when my hero only gets one attack and he can't take out a Stormtrooper right next to him.

Re: The Holocron of Chewbacca

Should he have synergy offered to Han Solo?

I would say yes, they are the best of buddies. He does give an additional defense bonus to Han Solo with his life debt, if you choose Han Solo to be the one he has the life debt to. As seen on his card.

Re: The Holocron of Chewbacca

I hope I'm not being a pain with all these synergy update posts. Chewie was missing links to all the Han Solos, so I added them below:
