You Build the Character #5 - Boba Fett

This competition is now closed.

Hi everyone, and welcome back to You Build the Character. This month's challenge is to build the baddest bounty hunter in the galaxy, Boba Fett. You have until midnight (PT) on Friday 19 February to post your RPG stats, and any notes you want to post explaining your decisions. Once submissions have closed, all forum members will have until midnight (PT) on Friday 26 February to vote for their favourite. Whichever build receives the most votes will win.

The prize for winning is having your stats enshrined in the YBtC Hall of Fame, as well as the bragging rights.


The following rules apply to all submissions:


  1. All builds must be created according to RAW, with no house rules (no single Athletics skill, no bonus feats for bloodlines etc).

  2. You may use "unlimited" point buy for Boba's ability scores, provided each score is between 3 and 18 at first level (before racial and age adjustments).

  3. You are free to use material from all official Saga Edition books, up to and including Galaxy of Intrigue.

  4. Your stats may represent Boba Fett at any point during his life, or serve as an overall interpretation of the character as a whole. You may even include multiple stats to represent multiple points in time, provided they are all different level versions of the same build (ie no swapping out talents or feats).

  5. Boba Fett is a Human, and as such uses the Human species traits provided on page 23 of the core rulebook.

  6. You may change your stats at any point up until submissions close, at which point any edited stats will be disqualified.

Have fun everyone, and may the Force be with you. Smile

AMS-51 "Dendrite" Connection lost...searching...
I thought he never bothered to learn mando'a, a point some of his fellow mandalorians commented about (how he'd get irritated when they'd sprinkle their language with it, since he didn't really understand it).

If he learned it at all it was towards the end of the Legacy of the Force books.

It's morphin time! ...Oh wait, wrong universe. Now where did I put my lightsabre? Winner of "You Build the Character 16 - Wedge Antilles" and "You Make the ... Contest 3 - Elite Forces"
What language, then, was Jango speaking to him in Ep 2 when he told him to hide the armor?  Huttese?  I would think Obi-Wan would be able to understand that.

The screenplay says it's Huttese. Don't remember Obi-Wan ever being shown to understand Huttese, so there's no conflict there.

Okay, this might not be a popular choice, but... I decided to stat Boba Fett based on what we see in the movies, which isn't actually all that impressive. Yes, he's notorious. But he ends up getting punked pretty easily. The movie version definitely doesn't make him out to be some superhuman badass. So I don't think he was anywhere near his father's level. Maybe he could have been, but Jango never lived long enough to complete his training. Anyway, I had to give him Int 14 so he would have had Int 12 as a child and understood the aforementioned Huttese. Couldn't think of any other language to give him as an adult, so went with the CR write-up and Mando'a. In keeping with my Han Solo write-up, I went with point-buy 25 for his ability scores (yes, Virginia, you really can do iconic characters with PB 25 ) and in Boba's case, everything comes from the SECR.

There are a few things I did a bit differently from most Boba Fett builds.  First of all I began with a 28 point buy, rather than 25.  While he’s a clone of Jango he has a slimmer build and has led a rather different life, hence a lower strength and higher constitution.  I also see Boba as more intelligent and wily rather than charismatic. 


I have his Dark Side points a little lower than normal.  Boba doesn’t see himself or his actions as evil and follows a strict personal code.  He’d done some bad things but I don’t think that makes him evil.


To my understanding Boba didn’t speak Mando’a around EpVI.  I have him speaking Kaminoan because I couldn’t think of another language he might know.


I started him in Soldier rather than Scout.  I think the training Jango gave him would have been rooted in more basic combat.  It’s been mentioned that Boba did some training with the other clones on Kamino as well.


He’s a few levels lower than in the Core Rulebook.  He’s still very good at level 12, nearly the same as a Jedi Master. The Scoundrel level I added to reflect on young Boba being forced to make his way in the galaxy alone.  The Persuasion skill was an addition that felt right because Boba is intimidating and he uses that, both to subdue his target as well as to drive up his fee when consulting a client.


The Exotic Weapon Mastery talent fits perfectly given the fact that Boba favors quite a few exotic weapons.  The talents from the Ambusher Talent Tree I felt worked well; Boba is good but is always looking for an edge.  There is the scene in Empire where Luke is trailing Fett and company on CloudCity.  Luke doesn’t even realize he’s been spotted until Boba opens fire.  One of the short stories I read Fett had tracked down a target and stripped himself of armor and weaponry just to get close to a mark.  He hid in the dark and the mud just waiting for the right time to strike; then shot the mark with a bow and arrow.  Another instance was when he lured Jodo Kast to a secluded location and caught him by surprise with a blaster to the head.


I slipped the Tech Specialist feat in there because Boba seems the type to tinker with his weapons and equipment to try and squeeze that extra bit of performance out of them.


I bumped Fett’s armor down from Medium to Light.  Boba stripped off the heavier leg armor that his father favored, which made no sense if it gained him nothing; in this case it made him faster.  The armor is still there to help, adding to his Fort defense and Damage Threshold, but he doesn’t rely on it completely.


The last thing of note is the weaponry I have listed.  He wouldn’t use all of it at once but I tried to put in a good mix of all the different things he’s used in the movies and comics and books.  I also added in some things from Scum and Villainy to spice it up a bit and tried my best to keep all the built-in weaponry and gadgets legal to the rules presented in that book.


I had fun doing this and hope people will enjoy my take on Boba Fett.  I apologize if I’ve been long-winded.  If there are mistakes in the stats then let me know and I will do my best to correct them.

Destiny: Rescue (Jango Fett). Boba must rescue his father from Obi-wan Kenobi so that Jango in turn can attempt to complete his Destruction (Mace Windu) destiny.

Boba Fett at the age of 10. Extensive training from his father has already laid the groundwork for Boba's successful bounty hunter career. Notice his training in common vehicle and personal weapons as well as his training in self-defense. I gave him a destiny point so he could use it to shoot Obi-Wan during the duel on Kamino, allowing his father to successfully win the battle.

for his boba at age 10.
I like Calamity's lil' Boba too.
It's morphin time! ...Oh wait, wrong universe. Now where did I put my lightsabre? Winner of "You Build the Character 16 - Wedge Antilles" and "You Make the ... Contest 3 - Elite Forces"
I vote for Calamity916 - his young Boba Fett seems well thought out.

Given Jedi_Comedian's comment, I'd guess that it is Qui-Gon Jinn who is the subject of the next contest (though if I'm wrong, it would not be the first time - but given the close to heart comment to you RB and your signature, it seems a reasonable guess ;) ).

This was a tough choice for me. Both everyone had good builds and i was initially torn between fairytalejedi and kerbouchard. In the end I had to go with kerbouchard's build as I think it defines Boba at a pivotal moment in history.


By the way jedi comedian, I'd like top put in a request for Yoda in the near future. I watched the first episode of season 1 clone wars last night and I love it every time. Yoda cracks me up in that episode.

It IS a pretty cool picture. The statblock is good too.
Thank you everyone that voted for my Boba. I'm honored. On a side note, I think it's pretty awesome to have the shortest and smallest winning entry in the YBtC Hall of Fame. Seems like we were voting in novels recently.

@ richterbelmont10: Some times less is more. I like to think it was the elegant simplicity of the build that won me the competition not just the cool picture. Wink

Well, I'm rather disappointed.  Not because I lost...but because only four people voted!  How many people looked at this thread?  Do these things usually get more votes?  I mean, sheesh...  There were the same number of entries as votes!
Unfortunately, as many votes as there are entries is a good turnout (although there are usually more entries...). I wish more members would take part in the contests, but you can't make people get involved if they don't want to.

It seems that one of my favorite characters wasn't as popular in this competition.... and now I can see why! It takes A LOT of work to correctly build the right selections and gear a character like Boba!
So here's the 1st of my Boba Fett entries- circa the Clone Wars series. Forced to wander the galaxy after his father's death, Boba has infiltrated the Youth Brigade, destroyed a Republic cruiser, and now he prepares for a well-paying job- just before being "betrayed" by his bounty hunter partner, Asajj Ventress.
At this point he's pretty standard for the character with 28pt RAW and Military occupation background, working towards a Destiny of rebuilding his father's Mandalorian battle armor. I think Grand Army of the Republic Training will eventually set this build apart. Sealed
I originally gave him Spacehound as his Scoundrel talent, but after I went in a few levels, I felt that I needed that talent somewhere else. Being trained in 'Pilot' and the Vehicular Combat feat will just have to be enough for my Boba Fett. I think Dastardly Strike fit him better, and opens up the possibility of taking levels in the Assassin class later on.

Fett  Legacy:
Boba Fett is a part of the Fett Clan Legacy, and can spend a Destiny Point as a Free Action to score critical hits on natural rolls of 19 or 20 for the duration of any encounter.


Boba Fett was very busy at the end of the Clone Wars- feuding with several rival bounty hunters Asajj Ventress, Aurra Sing, Bossk, and others; dueling Mace Windu to a draw before informing the Supreme Chancellor that Count Dooku and Darth Tyranus were one and the same; started n ill-fated family, performing odd jobs for Jabba the Hutt, destroying what was left of House Dooku, surviving a duel with Darth Vader on Maryx Minor and then becoming the Sith Lord's favorite instrument outside of official Imperial channels... All this by the age of 19.
This build represents Boba Fett as he delivers Captain Juno Eclipse to the Dark Lord of the Sith prior to the Battle of Kamino, just ahead of his lost apprentice Starkiller arrives with an invading force of the Rebel Alliance.
*Note that I've added the Fett Legacy from the Legacy Era Campaign Guide to these builds.
Running Attack, Improved Armor Defense  and Exotic Weapon Mastery are essential for any character hoping to take on Force-users with technology-based weaponry and armor. Several of his other feats improve his aim and ability to customize his suit of Mandalorian armor (with its inherent bonuses to modification).

Boba Fett is a part of the Fett Clan Legacy, and can spend a Destiny Point as a Free Action to score critical hits on natural rolls of 19 or 20 for the duration of any encounter. 


During his continuing partnership with the Empire, Boba Fett collects a number of impressive bounties (collecting a few DSP along the way) but is ultimately made infamous when he agrees to infiltrate and destroy the Bounty Hunter's Guild. For this, I have decided he deserves a Destiny Destruction.
 
After being brought aboard the Star Destroyer Executor, Boba Fett tracks down Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon to the Tibanna gas mine of Bespin. Given the history the two have, Boba deserves a completed Destiny for taking down his old nemesis. However, none of the existing destinies seemed to fit, so I created one for this- Capture. It works just the same as Rescue, as they seem like inverses to me. Boba gains a bonus to his INT for using several tricky tactics to track and overtake the crafty Solo, and CHA for the added notoriety of taking him in (and allows Boba to get a bonus when charming Jabba's dancing girls later). Cool
The rest of the build goes towards filling in some holes in Boba's game he's developed. He is extremely young to have accomplished so much, and now works on refining his existing skills rather than learning a lot of new ones- namely, Weapon Prof. (Heavy) and becoming trained in the 'Endurance' skill to take advantage of Shake it Off.

Boba Fett (like seemingly every Star Wars villain) managed to live a long time after his supposed 'death'. In fact, he would go on to play an important role in the galaxy at large, and especially in Han Solo's life. He would lead the Mandalorians afte vanquishing Jaster Mereel in single combat, earning a final Destiny Champion. He trained Jaina Solo for a time before she engaged her twin brother in their tragic duel.
I've added Weapon Focus, Double Attack & Multi-Attack Prof. with rifles, and also Second Skin- after all he's been using the same weapon and suit of armor for a very long time.
At this point Boba is at least 70 years old, and suffering from numerous health issues. At least partially making up for this, he is now trained in 'Deception'. Here is Boba Fett, a.k.a. Mandalore.

Another nice build, though mainly what it makes me think of is how good the cartoon was the first two seasons, and how they completely dropped the ball after the end of season two. But I digress. I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of your work on Boba.

Other than Darth Maul coming abck to life, I've actually enjoyed most of The Clone Wars. But, to each their own. I finished Boba's entry. Check it out above.
