  • Availability: [ Choose from the following: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Unique. How many of this unit are there? Availability reflects a broad idea of how many of these units exist. Common are the main backbone units of the army using mainly mass produced items. Uncommon are unusual or less common units sometimes using minor production items. Rare are specialized units using limited production items. Unique are one off variants of the other types and have special features that makes them one of a kind. More powerful units are not as common, and specific named units are unique.]

Originally referred to as "Strength," this reflects a general idea of how many of these NPCs are deployed at once as part of this unit. Mass units are deployed in larger numbers, like Stormtroopers. Minor units see more restricted deployment size, like Shadowtroopers. Limited units often appear in very small numbers, like the Imperial Royal Guard. More powerful units tend to have a lower strength designation and availability.]
  • Strengths & Weaknesses: [What are the combat strengths and weaknesses of this unit? You may describe them as a list or in paragraph form.]
