Edge of the Jedi

Well, here it is.  My Jedi Career and my Lightsaber Style Talent Trees all wrapped up into one nice, neat package.  Thanks to some feedback from Donovan Morningfire I've made some changes and updates.

Likely I'll need to do several more updates, especially when the core rulebook is actually released. I'm certain I'll need to make some tweaks as feedback and play testing occur.

But for now, here it is.  My work, shared with the world.

Enjoy, and let me know how it plays!

Edge of the Jedi v1.0



EDIT: And I already found an error in the document.  I never listed how I have the Lightsaber skill working.  This will be added to v1.01


  1. I really dig the Trakata talent, especially since I feel like Brawn and Agility take up too much of the limelight next to the other Characteristics due to their being the controlling factor in all combat checks.

    Is there anything in Star Wars lore that would lend itself to a similar talent to allow Willpower to govern lightsaber checks? I think tha would be awesome and would fit in well with the whole eastern philosophy / meditation / personal spirit ideals about the Force.

  2. Great work!
    I guess one little balance change, if we look at the force exile it gives 1 Force Rating and nothing else so from balance point of view it will be better to give 1 Force Rating and 2 out of 4 Jedi career skills (instead 4 out of 8), that would simulate jedi training from the childhood and balance FR/skills with Force-Sensitive Exile

  3. I can't say I'm a fan of making lightsabers having their default difficulty upgraded twice. Honestly, if you want it to be harder for untrained users, simply have the difficulty upgraded once, but a trained user (i.e. someone with at least one rank in Lightsaber) simply rolls against a regular difficulty.
