Skills (15 to start, 18 pts.; +1d6 Wild Die)

  • Fighting (Agility): d8
  • Force (Arcane/Spirit): d12 (+2, Jedi knight); This skill represents your understanding of the Force, and how to manipulate it, or understand it desires and follow them. This skill is used to activate the Force powers, and it can be used to achieve minor Force feats. A character with Force skill can make the following actions.
    • Hear My Thoughts: The player may send brief thoughts to others. Only a short word or idea may be sent at one time. Things like “Danger,” “Help,” or “It’s a Trap!” The difficulty is increased by the distance to the receptor of the thought.
    • Move Objects: The player may attempt to move and manipulate small, light objects up to 2 kg per Success and Raise. The range for this skill is Smarts. More massive objects require Power Points using the Telekinesis power.
    • Search your Feelings: A player may make a roll to determine if a course of action will have a favorable outcome. It takes one minute to use this skill this way. This only shows near future repercussions and not the long term consequences of your actions.
    • Sense Danger: All Force users have limited precognition. By spending a Power Point, the character may defend against ranged attacks as if they were melee attacks (Parry instead of TN 4).
    • Sense the Force: The player concentrates on feeling the flow of the Force around him noticing changes in it. The player may notice places or persons strong in the Force on a successful roll, on a Raise he may pinpoint the place where the disturbance came or understand the overall level of Force connection of someone.
    • Sense Life: The same way the player feels The Force, he may feel it in living beings. On a successful roll he may know if someone is around in a medium burst around him, ignoring cover or hiding. On a Raise he senses living beings on a large burst around him and senses exactly how many there are. It only works on living beings. Droids and characters invisible to the force cannot be perceived. This ability cannot pinpoint the exact location of someone, just if they are near.

      A wave of the hand and a well-placed word. Mind trick allows you to make an unbelievable suggestion, as long as it does not threaten the welfare of the target. Make an opposed Force vs. Spirit roll. On a success, the target believes your lie or follows your suggestion as if it were his idea. You may also make small auditory illusions that distract your target. Make a Force roll, on success your target is distracted (all rolls at -2, -4 with Raise) for one round.

Bio:

Ekafti Acomar was born to an upper middle class family on Rhinnal, a core world of the old Republic, in 82 BBY (Before the Battle of Yavin). Between her family’s good reputation and her natural talents, none were surprised when she entered the Jedi academy at an early age.

In 19 BBY, the Jedi consular was traveling with protocol droid Max Power on a diplomatic mission to Bakura in the Wild Space/Unknown Regions part of the galaxy as the Clone Wars wound down. Unbeknownst to Ekafti, Max helped her survive Order 66, which outlawed all Jedi.

Young Jedi Thayne Highlander was part of a Republic task force dealing with an incursion by the Ssi-ruuk when he saw his master slain by Clone Troopers following Order 66. During the battle, Ari Sundar decided to leave her people, and Thayne had mercy on her.

Meanwhile, gambler and ex-Jedi Garos recently obtained a starship, and Oong Bak is its Duros engineer. We’ve all recently come together, but we don’t know one another especially well. Still, we have a common foe in the Galactic Empire and a desire to survive….
