    Oka, another nifty new thing about this RPG is the ability to choose a lightsaber form for your character. Different styles have different bonuses. The style you choose depends on your character. You may choose any form except the last two (initially).

    The Seven Forms of Lightsaber Combat

    Form I
    The basics of lightsaber combat comprised of attack, parry and bodyzone strikes. It is used primarily for training new Jedi in the use of the lightsaber.


    Form II
    The perfect form for lightsaber-to-lightsaber combat and studied by almost every Jedi. Form II maximizes precision whilst minimizing movement so as not to tire the dueler. Darth Tyranus (Count Dooku) both preferred and mastered this form. Sith Lords expecting to combat Jedi studied this form carefully as it proved to be very effective in defeating Jedi knights.
    Bonus: +2 in melee vs melee attacks and melee vs melee defense


    Form III
    This form was developed specifically to counter the threat from laser blasts. As laser blasters spread throughout the galaxy Jedi had to learn to deflect/reflect laser blasts whilst offering the smallest possible target area. From this Form III was born. After the death of Qui-Gon Jinn this form was adopted and studied carefully by Obi Wan Kenobi. Many regard a true master of Form III as almost invincible. A truly defensive form.
    Bonus: +2 lightsaber defense


    Form IV
    The most acrobatic of all the lightsaber combat forms. Practitioners of Form IV took lightsaber combat to incredible new levels with amazing displays of physical prowess that were beyond anybody else. Watching a Form IV Jedi in battle would be difficult because of their ability to leap, spin, jump and fight in all 3 axis. Master Yoda was a master of Form IV. Other practitioners were Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi Wan Kenobi.
    Bonus: +2 in all physical ability checks during combat


    Form V
    As the demand on the Jedi to maintain peace and order grew a more aggressive Form was needed for use in combat. Form V was designed to not only deflect laser blasts but also deflect them back on the attacker. Strength and strong lightsaber attacks feature heavily in this form which was favoured more by some Jedi than others. The morality of using an enemys weapon against them didn't sit well with some Jedi knights.
    Bonus: +2 in lightsaber deflect



    Form VI
    A combination of Forms I, II, III, IV and V. Often referred to as the "diplomats form" this particular style of combat relied less upon combative movement and more upon allowing Jedi time to study diplomacy, galactic politics and their Jedi perception. Considered a lesser form by some Jedi masters it proved to be very popular amongst many Jedi knights. To truly master Form VI will take over 10 years of intensive study.
    Bonus: +1 in all previous bonuses


    Form VII
    The ultimate form of lightsaber combat which combines the raw strength of Form V with the graceful movement of Form IV. Only advanced Jedi masters such as Mace Windu can use this form effectively due to the huge emotions involvedin wielding it. Such is the emotional involvement that many Jedi refuse to study Form VII because it comes too close to the Dark Side of the force. Force assisted jumps and other movements feature heavily in Form VII as do series of sudden, seemingly unrelated, movements. A form VII practitioner will appear utterly calm on the surface but inside is a seething cauldron of emotions.
    Only for Jedi Vaapad

    Tumba: Reading the core book, I came up with a tweak for the Beastmaster. Animal companions gain XP at half the rate the characted does. So, if you get 1,000 xp, the animal gets 500. They lvl up normally, according to the table in the Creatures section and they gain feats every third lvls like PCs do.

    I also added a new special feature: Animal Telepathy.

    I see, I was then thinking of inclining the beastmaster jedi to an alien form sort of feral in a way, and aside from that I'm developing a sort of fighting style unique to this character employing the force. More of a submission and stun guy. Is the Trianii accepted to be played?

    Trianii are cool. Can you get their stats? Remember to factor in the detail that Trianiis come from a female dominated species when you create your character. ;)


    Edit: Found the stats

    So it seems I am a Trianii Jedi Beast master
    male and proficient in the lightsaber Form IV. Now for the pet.... any creature that is small, agile sort of monkeyish. Sorry its just that if I have a large creature like a wampa and such Im basically screwed. I want a small rat or mokeyish creature that can easily fit thru small openings and can be on me for easy carrying. Probably like a ferret or such, but I can't find any like that in the book. Pete can you whip up a species or do you want me to or do you want to use the book species only.

    do you have msn?

    Im going to draw the guy right now and make some back history.

    When do we gather to roll stats and such? LOL

    - Tony what about a descendant of Resnor Gray?
    - I?m interested in be de medic of the group ("Healing skills" as Jan put it). But I have still to read the new Jedi?s classes, so I will decide after selecting a class.

    Looks like nobody is liking the Jedi Vita. The Shatterpoint Skill looks pretty neat, but seems like besides that the class needs something else to spice it up...

    We still need Healers and someone to specialize on Tech/Repair/Demolitions.

    And last but not least, at the top of the list of the races that I want my character to be is Zabrak. To quote our friend Tumbark, think of an "inverse Darth Maul". ;)

    Jan: The Vita as a class get a huge boost at one lvl and they outperform every other class after that. Besides that, Shatterpoint kicks serious ass. But if you have any ideas, PM me ;)

    Rafa, you want ALL classes or only Jedi Classes?

    You guys might find this useful:

    Species List

    Ricardo, the Falleen are there.

    Yo iba a tomar Vita, pero en realidad busco algo un pqto menos "religioso" y mas "adventurous". Roman menciono que queria ser Healer. Maybe he should consider Vita.

    - For the moment I select Jedi Vita, I will confirm tomorrow.
    - I have a bit of an ambition with the species of my character so Pete I will PM you with the information of the species for permission to use it.
    The Jedi Vita or Jedi Healer may fit well with this character.

    Cool Luis.

    Como hicieron en SoD con los prestige classes? Empezaron de 0 no?

    Lo que tengo planeado es que, empezando, los personajes sean de la clase escogida, no multiclass. No van a empezal lvl 1.
