Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Unknown Regions
Always mobile, scouts have developed ways to ride and drive over all types of terrain.
Battle Mount Edit
You know how to fight from a living mount. You can use each of the following Actions once per encounter:
- Covered Attack: Once per encounter, when you use the Use Mount as Cover (But not Improved Cover) aspect of the Ride Skill, you can make an attack as a Standard Action, but you must have a free hand to do so.
- Reduce Profile: You gain additional Cover from your mount. When you succeed in the Use Mount as Cover application of the Ride Skill, you gain Improved Cover. If you fail by less than 10, you still gain the benefit of Cover. You gain no benefit if you fail by 10 or more.
- Swift Attack Mount: Once per encounter, the mount you are riding can make an attack as a Swift Action instead of a Standard Action.
Expert Rider Edit
You can reroll any Ride check, but the result of the reroll must be accepted, even if it is worse.
Terrain Guidance Edit
You effectively guide your mount through rough terrain. When in control of your mount, you can make a DC 20 Ride check as a Swift Action to negate the effect of Difficult Terrain on your mount's Speed.
Mechanized Rider Edit
You use your riding experience to improve your skills on a Speeder or a Swoop Bike. When riding a Speeder or a Swoop Bike (Or another, similar Vehicle), you can use the following applications of the Ride skill: Fast Mount or Dismount, Soft Fall, Stay in Saddle, and Use Mount as Cover.
