The Star Wars universe is home to a dizzying array of sapient Species. Despite the fact that Humans have been traveling the stars for tens of thousands of years, and many aliens have been doing the same for an equal amount of time, scouts discover new inhabited worlds all the time.

This section presents various creatures and characters that GMs can use as potential allies or adversaries for the heroes, from rampaging Rancors to Clone Troopers. Each ally or opponent comes with ready-to-play statistics to make the GM's job a little easier.

Unit Categories Edit

Individual Allies and Opponents (commonly referred to as "Units") can be divided into several categories depending on their role. These roles and categories are described below:

CATEGORY DESCRIPTION
Heroic Units These units are usually notable figures throughout the Star Wars galaxy, whether being a main or supporting character in the Star Wars media, such as Luke Skywalker.
Nonheroic Units Nonheroic characters include everything from professional workers to petty criminals, police officers to common thugs. They lack the inclination or training to be heroes. but they are capable in their own fields. Skilled engineers, educated professors, and master architects are all Nonheroic characters, as is the local governor, the self-serving spice merchant, and the baseline Imperial Stormtrooper.
Mass Combat Units A Mass Combat Unit represents a group of combatants taking part in Mass Combat. For the most part, a Unit is based on a single Nonheroic Unit representing the majority of the combatants in that Mass Combat Unit. Therefore, the statistics for the Mass Combat Unit are based on the statistics for this Nonheroic Unit.

Affiliations Edit

Most sentient beings reside in various factions or organizations. They don't necessarily fight for that cause, it is simply the group that they identify themselves as a part of. This can be watered down to the following main factions with sub-factions that are tangentially related to the main faction.
