Ancient Tomb Guardian Droid

Created around the time of the very first Droids in order to protect family crypts of powerful Anomid Jedi on Tython. The Droid was constantly being rebuilt and upgraded up until Great Droid Revolution, when it was shut down, and left hidden inside the crypt. Only a few years later, when Sith unleashed an army of Terentateks on Tython, the crypt was abandoned by its owners for a while, but after the Great Hunt Anaros started burying their dead there again. But only two generation later, around the time of The Mandalorian Wars, when Jedi banned marriages, the last of the Anaros died and the crypt was sealed.

I wasn't until The Great Galactic War when Flesh Raiders managed to open the crypt and accidentally awaken its Guardian. The Guardian behaved according to his programming and tore Flesh Raiders apart. Since then, the Tomb Guardian won't allow anyone to pass, unless an Anaro descendant presents their family codes. Codes, along with knowledge of this Droid's existence, were lost during Sacking of Coruscant, while knowledge of the crypt itself was lost during Order 66.

Ancient Tomb Guardian Droid Encounters

Fluff above is just how I used this Droid, but statistics below can be used for many other boss-like encounters. This Droid can be a new powerful Separatist tech that players must destroy, a Droid used in terrorist attacks on crowded walkways, or bodyguards of a powerful crime lord.

Regardless of its background, this Droid is designed to be used in places with many covers. Its special ability is quite deadly on open grounds, and forcse heroes to hide in Cover. It is also good idea to use multiple Guardian Droids, or combine him with other Huge or bigger enemies to give heroes the option to hide behind one.

If you want to add additional dynamics to this encounter, you can add destructible Cover. Every time someone benefiting from Cover is target of missed attack, attackers roll 1d6 in order to determine if he hit his target's cover. Regular Cover is hit on 5+, Improved Cover on 4+ and Total Cover on 3+. Balanced Cover should have between 30-40 Hit Points and 10 DR.

This Droid is also broken into multiple tires to allow usage in campaigns of different Challenge Levels.

"Ancient" keyword

As I said, you can use this droid in many ways, but focusing on him beeing Ancient may be really fun. Here i present some additional rules that may ephesise him beeing ancient:

  • It's subsystems are old and vulnerable, on natural 2 or even 3 it's weapons may jam, and on natural 1 maybe even explode.
  • If while using it's sepcial ability you roll natural 1, weapon mount may break, turning Rotary Blaster Cannon into missile. Attack the defender again with D20+5 with 4x4 square Area Attack, dealing 5d6 Damage.
  • There are a lot of strange pipes sticking out of this droid. If there is any figure adjescent, as a Free Action this droid must roll d6. On 5+ some strange substance aplashes in the direction of this figure. Droid attacks him with D20+5+Base Attack Bonus, on a succesful hit roll d4 to determine number of dice, than rol that number of d6 to determine damage ((d4)d6 of damage).
  • There are some loose cables dangling from Droid's chassis and encounter was originally designed to take place in shallow water. It's dangerous combination. As a Free Action this droid must roll d6. On 6 everyone in the water is attacked (Including this droid) with Electricity with D20+10+Base Attack Bonus against Fortitude Defense with 5d6 Electrical damage.
