Does this exist?

It came up the other day while talking around the table that it could be neat to have Stormtrooper and scout trooper templates, as there is a TIE fighter one, now I do know of the other imperial templates, like the ground vehicle commander and the agents, even the ex commando

However seeing that people do go straight from "nothing" to bucketheads just like with most other templates/classes, then why should we not have a stormtrooper template.

I have looked at the clone trooper template but idk, I found this to be maybe a fit for the stormtroopers but I have not seen many templates on other clone troopes to compare.


maybe again I should look to the galaxy of D6 heroes in the rancorpit to see if we can conjure up a stormtrooper, scout trooper and maybe other imperial templates.

Here's a link to a fanbook I found (though I can't remember where) and put it in my GoogleDrive. It's basically an NPC compendium that has all sorts of different WEG D6 NPCs, including its own section for stormtroopers as well as other types of Imperial troops.

Here's another link to a pdf document I also found in my computer by someone named "Guardian_A" that is stormtrooper-specific.

I believe both documents have versions of rankings/experience for each type of trooper (e.g. rookie, experienced, veteran, officer, elite, etc.). Hope these help.

I'm sure fans have created their own and they are out there. If there were going to be any official ones, they would have been in Heroes & Rogues. They weren't because one of the rules Lucasfilm gave all publishing is that they couldn't even show or discuss what Stormtroopers looked like under their helmets. Most PC templates have an image, and even without an image, there still is a description of the character written by the player. They just didn't want publishing to open the door to that.

So my suggestion would be to make your own PC template. Since stormtroopers normally aren't 18D attribute characters, I would think a PC stormtrooper would have to be an officer or elite stormtrooper. Sorry that is not more helpful.

Yeah I am pretty sure this is on the mark.

I have gooten by just fine until now with the npcs, and just using any 18 dtemplate, given the stats for the normal stormies at least is a flat 2D with the exception ebing scouts with a 3D Mecanical.

Those covered for the most part so yeah anyone 18D would be better.

I also thought of this given the new inferno squad where at least one was a stormtrooper.actually a coastal defense trooper before being a TIE fighter pilot and then part od the special forces. (Del meeko)

it is why I was inquiring about a stormtrooper template given a canon charracter actually was one ( and finn is one)

I wouldn't use Finn as a guideline. Finn is also a technical expert whenever the plot demands it (and sanitation).

Cool

More investigative Perception, like Carl the janitor in The Breakfast Club:

Let's say that you do need an 18D template for Stormtroopers:

Quote:
Dexterity: 4D
All Warfare Skills.
Knowledge: 2D
Bureaucracy, Law Enforcement, Intimidation, Survival
Mechanical: 3D
Gunnery Skills, Repulsorlift Operation, Walker Operation, maybe sensors.
Perception: 3D
Command, Con, Search, Sneak
Strength: 3D
All Strength skills are appropriate, maybe not lifting.
Technical: 3D
Armor Repair, Blaster Repair, Demolitions, First Aid.


Would be my first guess at an attribute spread and skills.
