Ewok

Intelligent omnivores from the forest moon of Endor, Ewoks are known as the species which helped the Rebel Alliance defeat the Empire. Prior to the Battle of Endor, Ewoks were almost entirely unknown, although some traders had visited the planet prior to the Empire's Death Star project.

The creatures stand about one meter tall, and are covered by thick fur. Individuals often wear hoods, decorative feathers and animal bones. They have very little technology and are a primitive culture, but during the Battle of Endor demonstrated a remarkable ability to learn and follow commands.

They are quite territorial, but are smart enough to realize that retreat is sometimes the best course of action. They have an excellent sense of smell, although their vision isn't as good as that of Humans.

Special Skills

Dexterity Skills

  • Thrown Weapons: bows, rocks, sling, spear. Time to use: one round. The character may take the base skill and/or any of the specializations.

Mechanical Skills

  • Glider: Time to use: one round. The ability to pilot gliders. Technical Skills:
  • Primitive Construction: Time to use: one hour for gliders and rope bridges; several hours for small structures, catapults and similar constructs. This is the ability to build structures out of wood, vines and other natural materials with only tools. This skill is good for building sturdy houses, vine bridges and rock hurling catapults (2D speeder-scale damage).

Special Abilities

  • Skill Bonus: At the time the character is created only, the character gets 2D for every 1D placed in the hide, search and sneak skills.
  • Skill Limits: Beginning characters may not place any skill dice in any vehicle (other than glider) or starship operations or repair skills.
  • Smell: Ewoks have a highly developed sense of smell, getting a +1D bonus to their search skill when tracking by scent. This ability may not be improved.

Story Factors

  • Protectiveness: Most human adults will feel unusually protective of Ewoks, wanting to protect them like young children. Because of this, Humans can also be very condescending to Ewoks. Ewoks, however, are mature and inquisitive - and unusually tolerant of the Human attitude.
