Squads allow for indirect control over additional units outside of the character's immediate party. Squads are made up of up to 12 NPCs/Droids and can be issued orders that they will then carry out autonomously.
Number of Squads: Infantry Command Skill + 1
Squads can be created through the party interface.
The following entities may be used to create a squad:
- NPCs and Droids you are the supervisor of.
- NPCs and Droids you are able to assign yourself the supervisor of.
Disbanding a squad may be done through the party interface. Any orders issued to a squad prior to the squad being disbanded will be cancelled.
Changing the supervisor of a squad will automatically disband the squad.
The player is able to issue commands to any squads under their command through the party interface.
The follow action will cause the squad to start following the commanding character.
If a character boards an entity, the Squad will board along with him. If the squad is at a different location when the character boards the entity, they will attempt to reach the entity then board if possible.
However, if the character has moved to a different room, the squad will cancel following once it has boarded.
If a character starts crossing to the next terrain grid and the squad is at the same location, they will move with him.
However, if they are not at the same location as the player, they will cease to follow the player.
