As a solution to the 'Blaster-Proof Wookiee' (which also applies to other high STR species, like Barabels and Whipids) problem, I came up with the following house rule, which has solved it quite well for us:I remember high health aliens were able to eat blaster bolts, a little too easily. Like Wookkies.
Characters who are hit in combat, but who succeed on their Strength roll to resist damage, are considered to be dazed. A dazed character suffers a penalty of 1D to skill and attribute rolls until the end of their next action. A character hit multiple times in this fashion can be dazed twice (or more), but they are not “affected” beyond that. Being dazed does not count as being stunned, but it is cumulative with stunned results. It also does not apply to Brawling attacks where the defender’s Strength is double that of the attacker.
