Star Wars Saga: AvP

I've always been a big fan of comics. When Dark Horse Comics got the Star Wars license, they'd already been playing with the Aliens and Predator licenses for a bit. At some point within the last decade or so, both Aliens and Predator have crossed over with some fantastic other properties ... but never with Star Wars. So I propose this idea ... what if the heroes of the Rebellion era battled either (or both) species? I've typed up some basics on both Xenomorphs and Yautja below to be used in the new Star Wars Saga system so that others may find out. Enjoy.

Yautja Species

The Yautjaa fictional extraterrestrial species featured in the Predator science-fiction franchise, characterised by their trophy hunting of other dangerous species for sport, including humans. For more information, please see Predators.

Yautja Weaponry & Armor
Below are a sample of the weapons and equipment the Yautja use.

Optics Helmet
Cost 5,000 Armor Bonus to Ref Def - Armor Bonus to Fort Def +2 Max Dex Bonus +5
Weight 3kg Availability Restricted
This light helmet offers little protection for the Yautja, but rather offers him a bevy of sensor suites to hunt his prey. The main sensors allow the wearer to use regular vision, thermal, electric, and a friend/foe setting that allows for the identification of weaponry. The helmet also offers a computerized targeting array that grants its user a +2 attack with ranged weaponry.

Cloaking Device
Cost 10,000 Weight 2 kg
Typically reserved for hunts against quarry which shoot back, the cloaking device provides the Predator with active camouflage, bending light around the wearer and projecting a semi-transparent image in front of the Predator, rendering it partially invisible. In game terms, while active, the cloaking device allows the Yautja to Take 10 with Stealth rolls even if distracted or threatened.

Acidic Blood - If exposed to the blood of a Xenomorph, a target receives 1d6 damage every round until treated. This damage is considered Persistent on the Condition Track. A successful Treat Injury check (DC 20) is required to halt the damage. In some cases, Xenomorphs have used this to their advantage, splashing targets with their own blood. In such cases, it should be treated as an attack with +6 to hit and having a range of 1 square. In many cases, large quantities of the blood has been used to melt metal in floors and doors.
Ambush - A Xenomorph deals +2d6 points of damage with its natural weapons against a flat-footed opponent.
Blind - The spittle from a Xenomorph is also mildly acidic, often causing blindness in those struck in the eyes by it. To perform this, the Xenomorph must be within 1 square of their target and make an attack where the target receives a +10 bonus to their Reflex Defense. If successful, the target moves 3 steps down the Condition Track.
