Lando Calrissian had agreed to turn over a group of Rebels to the Empire, including Han Solo and Leia Organa, as part of bait for a trap for Jedi Padawan Luke Skywalker. However, the deal was altered by Darth Vader and Lando felt he was no longer able to tolerate it. Subsequently, he joined the Rebel Alliance and took part in numerous missions on its behalf. In particular, Lando particpated in the rescue of Han Solo, who had been frozen in carbonite. Lando later became a General in the Rebel Alliance military.

Re: The Holocron of Lando Calrissian

Lando Calrissian
Independent

Human
Unique Hero
Gambler
Pragmatic
Medium 5

Life 4
Move 5
Range 6
Attack 3
Defense 3
Points 100

HERE GOES NOTHING
When Lando Calrissian attacks a figure with a normal attack, before rolling attack dice, you may roll the 20-sided die. If you roll a 10 or lower, roll one fewer attack die. If you roll an 11 or higher, add two automatic skulls to whatever is rolled.

A CLEVER DECEPTION
If an opponent's figure within 5 clear sight spaces of Lando Calrissian targets one or more friendly figures with a normal or special attack, you may immediately reveal an 'X' Order Marker on this card. If you do, the attacking player's turn immediately ends and targeted figures do not receive any wounds. You may also move one friendly targeted figure up to 4 spaces. Figures moved using A Clever Deception never take any leaving engagement attacks. A Clever Deception may only be used once per game.

Re: The Holocron of Lando Calrissian

Lando! And with a risk-reward power, too. It's like he was made for me. Two automatic skulls is crazy; you'd be rolling the statistical equivalent of 7 attack at 6 range. Brutal. Clever Deception seems a bit narrow to me; worth using but not exactly flashy with the once-per-game restriction.

Definitely seems like a build-around unit. Glad that you put most of the synergy on Lobot, though, to keep Lando more flexible. Good feel.

Re: The Holocron of Lando Calrissian

Does Deception work if the opponent attacks Lando?

Lando can't be in clear sight of himself unless you have a mirror in play.

FYI

There are very few situations I would not roll the 20 sided die for Lando. Was there supposed to be tension for rolling the d20? Because as it stands right now, there is only a narrow window of situations where not rolling is the better option.

The opponent's figure must be within 5 clear sight spaces, not the defending figure. So Lando could use it on himself if he were attacked since no sight is required for the defending figure.

At a guess, the point isn't so much that you wouldn't always take the risk, the point is that you can't rely on him. At least, thematically, that's what makes sense to me.

Re: The Holocron of Lando Calrissian

Yeah, I roll the d20 just about every time. The exception would be if I'm targeting a guy with only 2 def or 3 def and Lando has high ground. Then the odds for a wound are already in your favor. I generally just like to activate Lando to take a shot at someone like Vader. He gives you a 50/50 chance at hitting hard enough to bypass that 6 defense.
