    Anyone got stats on the saber-chucks from battlefront 2??

    Watching last exile, a came up with an idea-pistols wich have light-saber emmiters right below the barrels. Not as good as a normal lightsaber in a dual, but very versitile.

    Light-bayonettes? Well, I've heard worse ideas (including some of my own).

    Anyone can use a lightsaber. Just that Jedi are kilometers-away better at it.

    Not to mention that getting used to a weightless melee weapon'd be nearly impossible for someone without special abilities. Well, without severing their own limb, that is.

    But, here's the worst idea I could think of.

    Are you ready for this?

    Light... shoeknives. You stomp down hard on the heel and a small lightsaber activates at the toe.

    I thought of something worse.

    Spitting lightsabers.

    Tiny, tiny emmiters concealed in a cheek, which are spit after being activated.

    Can you spot the crucial design flaw?

    A lightcudgel. Like in Futurama. You just beat people with it.

    Okay, get ready to have your mind blown, man!

    A gun that shoots light, like a lightsaber. It would be an intensely focused laser-beam...

    Wait, that sounds familiar. [face_thinking]

    Light studs, the latest fashion accessory. What better way to say "don't touch me?"

    Lightsaber crossbow! It's a crossbow designed to activate and launch full-sized lightsabers at high velocity towards an intended target!

    This, coincidentally can also be used to answer the question: "Is there any weapon more expensive than throwing large daimonds at your foes?"

    Why not just go for a full out catapult or trebuchet? Isn't the old saying the more the merrier? Hell, just get a few trolls from LoTR to help pull them around and you're set! o_O

    Is it just me or is this kinda redundant? A lightsaber is already basically a light stick.

    Except light-sticks are for the express purpose of poking light-frogs and light-dead bodies.

    So a powered down lightsaber? It just stings instead of cutting or something? Fair enough, maybe for crowd control in large riots and stuff.

    That's what training lightsabers do, don't they?

    As far as I know, yep.

    Rules wise; I'd say use all the same rules as for normal sabers (or maybe slightly less powerful?), but instead of killing your opponent when they run out of vitality they are knocked out instead. They may make a fortitude test (at a suitable DC) every minute after they get knocked out to see if they wake up. They regain 5% of their total vitality for every minute they spend knocked out before waking.

    Do energy pummels from GB count as a lightsaber varient? Cause the design shoud basically be a gaint lightsaber with treds (or 'lifts) and a cockpit.

    How about a giant lightsaber apparatus attached to the front of a landspeeder?

    I call it the Light-Cow-Catcher!!

    Wait, what am I saying? That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard in my life!!

    There are no cows in the Star Wars galaxy!!

    I'll call it the Light-Bantha-Catcher!!

    Yeah ...

    Best ... idea ... ever. [face_dancing]
