Well, that was the other problem with the TIE/LN. It's average pilot wasn't all that well trained.
Which is a different sort of penny wise, pound foolish stupidity, that is not even penny wise.  Energy is so cheap that it is cost effective to haul grain out of gravity wells.  Now all you need is a bit of time for the pilots to practice, and a bit of gear so they survive.

(I can squint and see the life support angle as mostly a reason for why TIE pilots won't survive long enough to take their craft and defect the way one could with an X-Wing.  Come to think of it, wouldn't shields be necessary for operating in an atmosphere?)

I'm running them with the rest of the NPCs -- Grumblejack in particular is looking forward to trying out his new axe taken from Kargeld

Ok, who has the stats for our NPCs Timeon and Grumblejack?

I'd volunteer to command one or two of them if no one else wants to  Wink
For the moment I assume they also ready their gear and move with Aiden 30ft forward.

Well I'm happy to start at the south of the map if every one else is

Sort of a mix, really. The back wall is leaning forward, so the top is 10-15 feet to the south compared to the bottom.

Is the place where the rangers are camped a cave or a crevice?

FWIW, I have always thought that not putting any shields on a TIE fighter was single seat F-22/F-35 levels of stupid.

TIE/LN don't have shields, life support, or hyperdrives to save on weight and cost. Imperial military theory viewed them, and their pilots as expendable cogs in the machine. This view started with the clone army, but continued well past the Galactic Empire's downfall.

That was one of the pieces of EU lore that really bugged me given the level of investment training each pilot would represent
