The Elite Trooper represents an individual who has received advanced combat training. More than a mere Soldier, the Elite Trooper is highly trained and capable of taking on any number of combat-related missions, such as guarding an important location, assaulting an enemy base, or participating in a stealthy insertion into enemy territory. They're a crack shot and, though trained in the use of armor, can easily operate without it if the situation warrants. When the fighting gets particularly brutal, the Elite Trooper can dispatch foes hand-to-hand as easily as they can with a blaster.

Elite Troopers exist in a variety of roles, but unlike Imperial Stormtroopers- the "Elite Troops" of the Empire, they rely on skill and ingenuity more than sheer force and blind obedience to the Empire's will. Thus, the best missions for them involve penetrating attacks deep behind enemy lines, or guerrilla warfare conducted on enemy-held worlds- situations where versatility and sheer determination are the Elite Trooper's best armaments and armor.

Defense Bonuses[edit | edit source]

At 1st level, Elite Troopers gain a +2 Class bonus to their Reflex Defense, and a +4 Class bonus to their Fortitude Defense.

Delay Damage[edit | edit source]

Elite Troopers are among the toughest individuals in the galaxy. After being exposed to numerous threats, foes, and combat situations, you've developed the ability to delay effects that would drop lesser creatures.

Once per encounter as a Reaction, you can choose to delay the effect of a single attack, ability, or effect used against you. The damage or effect does not take hold until the end of your next turn.

Talents[edit | edit source]

At every odd-numbered level (1st, 3rd, 5th, and so on), the Elite Trooper selects a Talent. The Elite Trooper must meet the prerequisites (If any) of the chosen Talent. No Talent can be selected more than once unless expressly indicated. An Elite Trooper can select a Talent from one of the Talent Trees (Elite Trooper).

Damage Reduction[edit | edit source]

At 2nd level, you gain Damage Reduction 1 (DR 1), which means that you reduce the damage you take from any attack by 1.

At every even-numbered level after 2nd, your Damage Reduction improves by 1 (DR 2 at 4th level, DR 3 at 6th level, and so on).
