It takes one day, or one hour in Emptiness to regain 1D of Willpower damage. This power does not protect against Force Storms, Force Lightning, or any object hurled by Telekinesis; Force of Will works

Injure/Kill
Difficulty: Target’s Control or Perception

The power may be used to levitate the Jedi and others. Any target may resist by adding their Control or Perception to the Jedi’s difficulty. Use the Control skill against the target’s dodge; if the target doesn’t wish to dodge, the difficulty is Easy.

This power can also be used to parry blaster bolts, but the Jedi must declare that action. Blaster bolts may be controlled to use to attack if the parry is successful.

Create Force Storms
Difficulty: Control difficulty: Heroic. Sense difficulty: Heroic. Alter difficulty: Heroic, modified by proximity. Also modified by diameter of the storm: 100 meters or less: +5; 101 meters to 1 kilometer: +10; 1,001 meters to 2 kilometers: +15; and +2 for each additional kilometer. The Jedi must make Heroic rolls each round to control the storm, and if the roll is less than Very Difficult, the storm dissipates.
Keep Up?: No
Description/Notes:
Requires: Hibernation Trance, Life Detection, Life Sense, Magnify Senses, Receptive Telepathy, Rage, Instinctive Astrogation, Sense Force, Telekinesis, Farseeing, Projective Telepathy. This power allows the Jedi to twist the space-time continuum to create a destructive storm of Force energy. The Jedi must determine the diameter and amount of damage, in capital scale, of the storm. If s/he fails any of his/her rolls, the storm is summoned with the desired damage, but it attempts to consume the summoner. At a Heroic difficulty, the Jedi can attempt unusual maneuvers with the storm, such as creating a vortex to draw unwary victims to a specified point. If the Jedi is destroyed, the storm dissipates within minutes.

Doppelganger
Difficulty: Control difficulty: Very Difficult. Sense difficulty: Very Difficult. Alter difficulty: Heroic.
Keep Up?: Yes
Description/Notes:
Requires: Control Pain, Emptiness, Life Detection, Life Sense, Magnify Senses, Telekinesis, Receptive Telepathy, Sense Force, Projective Telepathy, Control Another’s Pain, Transfer Force, Affect Mind, Dim Other’s Senses. Time to Use: 5 minutes. This allows the Jedi to create a duplicate of him/herself, which acts with half the skill dice of the original. The doppelganger is an illusion, but it seems real and registers as normal on all droid video and audio. The Jedi can employ all his/her normal senses through the doppelganger; S/he must roll every five minutes to maintain the doppelganger. If it is killed, it simply fades into nonexistence.

Drain Life Energy
Difficulty: Control difficulty: Easy. Sense difficulty: Easy, modified by proximity. Alter difficulty: Easy.
Keep Up?: Yes
Description/Notes:
Requires: Control Pain, Life Detection, Life Sense, Magnify Senses, Sense Force, Remove Fatigue, Control Another’s Pain. This allows the Jedi to draw power from nearby non-sentient beings. As long as the power is up, the Jedi will not fatigue or require sleep. This power may not be used to draw energy from sentient beings.

Drain Life Essence
Difficulty: Control difficulty: Very Difficult, modified by relationship (+30 for close relatives, nothing for strangers). Sense difficulty: Very Easy: 1-5 targets; Easy: 6-50 targets; Moderate: 51-1,000; Difficult: 1,001-50,000 targets; Very Difficult: 50,001-1 million targets; Heroic: 1,000,001-10 million targets. Alter difficulty: Easy: willing targets; Difficult: apathetic targets; Heroic: enemies; add +10 for anyone imbued with the Light Side of the Force.
Keep Up?: Yes
Description/Notes:
Requires: Control Pain, Hibernation Trance, Life Detection, Life Sense, Magnify Senses, Receptive Telepathy, Sense Force, Telekinesis, Farseeing, Projective Telepathy, Control Another’s Pain, Transfer Force, Affect Mind, Control Mind, Dim Another’s Senses. This power allows the Jedi to draw life energy from others, and channel the negative effects of the Dark Side into those victims. The Jedi must roll for the power once per day, and it is considered to be up at all times. The amount of energy drawn depends on the number of targets and the length of time they have been drained:

Targets drained for less than one week or longer than one month Targets drained for longer than one week and less than one month
1-5: 1 Force Point per week 1-5: 1 Force Point every 5 days, +1D to all Force skills
6-50: 1 Force Point every 5 days 6-50: 1 Force Point every 3 days, +2D to all Force skills

1,001-50,001: 1 Force Point every 2 days 1,001-50,000: 1 Force Point every day, +3D+2 to all Force skills
50,001-1 million: 1 Force Point every day 50,001-1 million: 1 Force Point every 12 hours, +4D to all Force skills
1,000,001-10 millions: 1 Force point every 12 hours 1,000,001-10 million: 1 Force Point every 6 hours, +4D+2 to all Force skills

Description/Notes: The Jedi may coordinate the activities of a group to increase the group’s effectiveness at a give task. The power may only be used on targets in agreement with the intent of the Jedi. S/he may pick three specific skills (as long as everyone in the group has those skills), and each person gains a +1D bonus for every 3D (round down) they already have in those skills. The Jedi may only effect Dexterity, Technical, and Strength skills.

Force Harmony
Difficulty: Control difficulty: Difficult, modified by proximity. Sense difficulty: Difficult, modified by relationship. Alter difficulty: Moderate.
Keep Up?: Yes
Description/Notes: Requires: Life Detection, Life Sense, Projective Telepathy, Receptive Telepathy. This power allows several willing Jedi to manifest the power of the Light Side.

Keep Up?: No

Keep Up?: It may be kept up as long as the distance between the Jedi and the target remains roughly the same.

The Jedi may elect to cause stun damage, and even then should only use this power to protect an innocent; using this power to cause anything more serious than stun damage
. If the power is successful, the Jedi must then make an Easy brawling roll to hit. If the target is Force-sensitive, then s/he may make a Brawling Parry roll to avoid the attack. Otherwise, no dodge is allowed. Add any bonuses to armor for the target. The Jedi may aim for any specific part of the target’s body at a –1D penalty.

Telekinetic Kill
Difficulty: Control difficulty: Easy, modified by proximity. Sense difficulty: Easy, modified by proximity. Alter difficulty: target’s Control or Perception roll.
Keep Up?: No.

This allows the Jedi to transfer his/her life energy into another body. Immortality itself! It is believed that if the Jedi’s body dies during the transfer, the Jedi’s life energy is dispersed into the void.

Force Scream
This involuntary power is activated only if a Dark Side Jedi loses his temper. The Jedi must make a Difficult Willpower roll if angered to the point of rage. If the roll fails, the Force Scream is released. The Jedi’s skills are reduced by 2D for one house, and s/he must rest for a full hour or suffer another –2D penalty until rested. The penalties are cumulative. The Scream causes damage equal to the Jedi’s Alter dice, and affects all beings within 50 meters, including the Jedi making the Scream. Force-sensitive targets may roll their Alter dice to resist damage.
