Innate Abilities

NOTE: All characters may opt to start with a maximum of two Innate Abilities after paying the listed CP cost for each one. Others may be added after a campaign starts if there is an instructor available to teach the basics of the new ability. This training process takes one month, but can be reduced one day per extra CP spent (two week minimum) or down to one week if the character wishes to spend a Force Point to learn the ability quickly. This is not a heroic use of a Force Point so it will not return later.
Innate Ability Summary CP Cost Effect/Notes
Ambidextrous You are equally proficient in performing tasks with your left or right hand. 15 The character no longer suffers a penalty to skill rolls when using their offhand. This does NOT mean using both hands simultaneously; that falls under Ambidexterity.
Appraisal You can estimate the relative value of an item. 10 The character can evaluate within a 20% margin the cost of an item after inspecting it
Armor Mastery You have spent so much time in armor you wear it like a second skin. 15 The character ignores up to 1D of DEXTERITY penalties due to wearing armor
Blind Fighting Your instincts and sharp senses give you the edge in lowlight or dark conditions. 15 In lowlight or dark conditions, the character reduces the cover modifier of the difficulty to hit a target by up to 2D – e.g. a target in thick smoke or moon light would not gain a cover modifier against the character (normally +1D difficulty modifier). Similarly, in very thick smoke or complete darkness, the target would only receive a +2D difficulty modifier instead of the normal 4D
Notes: This applies to both ranged and close quarters combat. In situations where there is both smoke and lowlight, the reduction to the difficulty modifier applies to the total modifier rather than the separate modifiers – e.g. light smoke and a moonlit night would normally grant a +3D difficulty modifier, a character with Blind Fighting reduces this modifier to +1D
Body Language Intuition You are very good at reading other people’s body language and determining whether their verbal and non-verbal communication aligns. 10 On a moderate PERCEPTION roll the character can determine what a person’s body language is portraying.
Notes: The person must be of the same species as the character. If the species is close, but is not the same then the Perception roll increases to Heroic. If the species is extremely different than add at least +10 to the already Heroic roll.
Dexterous You are more able and quick to act than most in tight situations. 15 Up to three times per adventure, the first action in the round does not count towards the character’s total number of actions when determining multiple action penalties. Use of this Innate Ability must be stated when declaring the number of actions for the round.
Eidetic Memory You are able to recall images, sounds, or objects in memory with extreme precision. 10 On an easy KNOWLEDGE roll the character is able to recall images, sounds or objects with a very high degree of accuracy.
Notes: This Innate Ability does not give character a perfect recall of all events. The range is 60% up to 90% depending on the memory and the senses involved.
Inspirational Leader You are an inspiration to those who follow you and people fight harder in your presence. 20 The character adds +1D to all Command rolls. In addition, all allies within 30 meters of the character gain +1 to all attack rolls.
Notes: The bonus to the Command roll does not increase the skill itself and, therefore, when advancing the skill do not factor in the bonus when determining character points to be spent.
Internal Clock You seem to know the time wherever you are. 5 On an Easy PERCEPTION roll the character can determine the time with a 5-10 minute margin of error.
Notes: The character needs to have some form of reference point once in a new location with a different time zone and knowledge of the local length of day.
Internal Compass You have a profound sense of direction. 5 On an Easy PERCEPTION roll the character can determine the direction of north with a 5-10% margin of error.
Lightening Reflexes You are very quick in reacting to the situation around you. 20 The character adds +2 to PERCEPTION for all initiative rolls.
Light Sleeper The slightest of noises can wake you from your sleep. 5 On a Moderate PERCEPTION roll the character may detect sounds while sleeping.
Notes: Normal background noise will not rouse the character as they will be acclimatized to it prior to falling asleep.
Lip-Read You are able to understand speech by visually interpreting the movement of lips, face and tongue without hearing what is being said. 10 On a moderate PERCEPTION roll the character can lip-read what another being is saying.
Notes: The being must be of the same species as the character as well as be able to see the being’s lips move and speak the same language that is being used. However, additional species and languages may be added, up to a maximum of 3 each (start of campaign only), for an extra 4 CPs per species and 5 CPs per language. Also, the language must already be known and the skill of Alien Species must be at least 5D. There are certain languages that cannot be understood in this manner and will not be allowed.
Luck The Force seems to flow through you at times altering your fate and fortune. 10 Once per adventure the character may reroll the Wild Die.
Notes: The second roll of the Wild Die stands even if it was worse than the first roll.
Natural Aptitude You have natural aptitude and affinity for a particular attribute and skill set. 15 On purchasing this Innate Ability, select one Attribute that it will apply to. When improving skills under the chosen Attribute, it costs one character point less than normal. In addition, it costs five character points less to improve the chosen Attribute.
Notes: Once the Attribute has been selected, it may not be changed.
Pain Resistance You have a high pain threshold and can shrug off injuries that would floor most people. 15 If the character is Wounded or Wounded Twice, on a Moderate Willpower roll the character does not fall prone and can continue to act that round, albeit with the penalties for being either wounded or wounded twice. Also, it is much more difficult to stun this character. Add +1D to Strength rolls to resist all Stun damage.
Quick-Draw You are one of the fastest guns in the galaxy. 10 The character may draw and use a single handheld weapon as one action. Drawing the weapon does not count towards the total number of actions for the round.
Quick Learner Things come to you naturally and you pick up new things with ease. 10 When learning new skills, the character advances two pips above the attribute rather than the usual one pip.
Notes: The cost in character points is the same as advancing one pip and time is reduced by at least one day.
Resilient Your immune system and your body’s ability to heal itself are both exceptional and nothing keeps you down for long. 10 If the character is recovering from injuries through natural healing all resting times are halved, e.g. a wounded character can make a roll to heal after one and a half days of rest. In addition, all Bacta Tank healing is reduced by one hour to a minimum of one hour.
Sixth Sense Can sometimes get a feel for what might be coming in the VERY near future and possibly avoid it or veer towards it. 20 This Innate Ability can only be used twice per adventure with results at the GM's discretion.
Stubborn Once your mind is made up there is little any one can do or say to sway you. 15 If someone (including an ally) attempts to Bargain, Con or Persuade the character, add a +5 modifier to the difficulty. In addition, the character adds +1D to all Willpower rolls.
Notes: The bonus to Willpower rolls does not increase the skill itself and, therefore, when advancing the skill do not factor in the bonus when determining character points to be spent.
Tactical Genius You have a remarkable natural grasp of tactics and can quickly respond to tactical situations around you. 20 The character adds +1D to all Tactics rolls. In addition, the character adds +1 to PERCEPTION for all initiative rolls
Notes: The bonus to Tactics rolls does not increase the skill itself and, therefore, when advancing the skill do not factor in the bonus when determining character points to be spent.
Tough It takes a lot to knock you down and your physical limits are greater than most. 20 The character adds +1 to STRENGTH when rolling to resist damage. In addition, the character adds +1D to all Stamina rolls.
Notes: The bonus to Stamina rolls does not increase the skill itself and, therefore, when advancing the skill do not factor in the bonus when determining character points to be spent.
Trademark You are renowned for a particular skill that few can match. 10 On purchasing this Innate Ability, select one Skill Specialization that it will apply to. The character adds a +2 bonus to the rolls of the selected Specialization. In addition, when improving the selected Specialization, it costs one character point less than normal.
Notes: Once the Specialization has been selected, it may not be changed. The bonus to the Specialization rolls do not increase the skill itself and, therefore, when advancing the skill do not factor in the bonus when determining character points to be spent.
Ventriloquist You are able to throw your voice to make it seem like it is coming from a different person or place. 10 On a difficult Con roll the character can throw their voice.
Notes: Normal Con modifiers apply.
Veteran Under Fire You are much more diffucult to pin down in a firefight. 10 Suppression fire shots have a difficulty value of Very Difficult rather than Difficult against someone with this ability
