Please don’t ban me from the Forums!

you’ve got two power sources – capacitor and power pack. Which is it?


hmm… I meant that it started with a Capacitor, and Upgraded to the Power Pack, I was not sure how to convey that.

Just a nitpick, let’s call it “Saber Trained” not “Padawan Training.” There could be people who were never Padawan (Sith from the beginning, say) and so we wouldn’t want to burden them with a trait name that suggested that they had he rat-tails when they didn’t.

I don’t know that you get a die for restricting it to hand-to-hand combat, since Kerrn Swords would be similar and yet don’t have such a trait, IIRC.

Maybe Elegant could also or instead count as the Superior trait for very close-quarters firefights? It seems like a saber’s just about the best thing in the galaxy for those ranges, so it should count as a superior weapon.

When I went to make it, I was confused about basic packages for weapons. But I believe that you get a discount for H2H only as most weapons are long range. Not sure about the Kerrn Sword though.

Saber Training is good/better.

I did give it Surperior Weapon, but I wanted to give it an advatage die as well. SW only gives you a dispostion bonus. and really because it is likely that other will have wepons of the next class up (assalt rifles) that the Surperior weapon trait will not even be used, it really only should give you a bonus if it is all close combat weapons.

You need to use your force powerz to rip the assault rifles right out of those stinking stormtrooper’s hands.
