Seriously. I know we've had the "Jedi=Munchkin" thread here, and this is a sub-set of that, but what makes a Jedi such a hard character to play? For instance... - We've all experienced the player who's of the "l00k at mah 1337 Jedi skillz!" munchkin style of Jedi play. - Then we have the other end, Jedi who fear to take action because they're worried about game mechanics (DSPs) or emotional content ("There is no emotion") The Power of the Jedi Sourcebook details that the life of a Jedi is a hard one, and playing one should be no different -- but is it really THAT hard to play a Jedi character correctly? Qui-Gon Jinn was a rebel -- he didn't bow to the Council, wasn't afraid to cheat at dice, but he followed the Force and did its bidding -- thus he was a Jedi, and a darn good one. In our current campaign, we've had one guy who played Munchkin Jedis all the time. One turned to the Dark Side, his second one was pasted by Sith War Droids which redeemed his first character, then he fell AGAIN (then I finally blew his starship up so there was no third chance). Our OTHER Jedi is a n00b, but one who's followed Star Wars for quite a while. But as for role-playing -- not good. Role-playing a Jedi is even worse. She's just not up for it and gets paralyzed by indicision at almost every encounter. At this point, I'm begging my GM to run me through a solo adventure once or twice so I can play a Jedi and see if it's his games or the people (you all know which way I vote). My next few character concepts involve Consulars who refuse to take sentient life with lightsabers (think Vodo Baas) or Jensaarai just to prove that there IS a way to play Jedi AND a way to not make them combat monsters. As a side-note, we have a Force Adept in our group. Definitely one of the top two characters I've ever, ever played with (and one of the best roleplayers in general I've ever played with). So it IS possible for Force-users. What are y'all's thoughts? Is playing a Jedi tough in your campaigns? Any good stories of people playing them right? Any good stories of you playing them right?
