I was perusing Centrepoint Marketplace the other day, when I came upon this curious listing.

. . . Ewoks military NPCs are a restricted race on Star Wars Combine . . .

- Description of listing

I wasn't even aware that races could be "restricted." Have I been missing something these past few years? When did this happen?

The individual who listed the NPCs is just trying to trump up their value. Ewoks are not restricted other than that they can not be played by a PC. Speaking in terms of game mechanics.

When I hire military NPCs I get Ewoks fairly often.

You just can't get onto Endor to get the higher chances is what iv'e heard, due to shielding.

There may be "restrictions" on NPCs due to planets being shielded (Endor, Kiffex, etc) or because of rarity in existence or faction-limits (Bomarr Monks, Stormtroopers, etc). However as Elijah said, many of the races that are restricted simply out of planetary-shielding may and will still show up in the random hiring of NPCs from other planets.

sorry i dont want to steal this post but my question is queit similar to this

what are the rare npc types?

Year 12 Day 290 18:22
What do you mean by rare types? The ones that you cannot hire, or rare races, which don't really exist.

Ah believe he's is talking about the brain-spider monks

Or maybe which ones are currently the most sought after

I suppose you could consider Stormtrooper NPCs and Bomarr Monks as "rare" types.
