Stellar Element Powers

6th Level Castings

At 1st Level, a Jedi must choose a Stellar Element to tie his Destiny and Lifeforce to. These Stellar Elements represents focuses of the Universal Force. Power can be drawn from them. Once the Jedi chooses the Stellar Element, he automatically gains the powers once he reaches 6th Level.
  • Void
  • Star
  • Nebula
  • Black Hole
  • Moon
  • Asteroid
Choosing a Stellar Element ties the Jedi’s Lifeforce to that Element. These Elements are relatively immortal, immortalizing that Lifeforce once the Jedi reaches 6th level. Each Element gives the Jedi unique powers and bonuses.

Stellar elements create subdivisions with in Jedi society. All Jedi of the same Element division are of the same Stellar Order. They are bound by a stronger honor that stems from the Element’s existence itself. When two Jedi’s meet, they can tell what Stellar Order they are each aligned with just by sensing them.

A. Asteroid

When a Jedi ties his Lifeforce to the gallant and majestic asteroids, he’a bound to the silent masses of stellar debris that have seen the creation of the universe. They represent ancient wisdom, gravitational strength, and quiet grace; coldness of space and the silence of eternity. Certain bonuses apply –

    • When the Jedi is in the vicinity of an asteroid field or on an asteroid (Asteroid base for example), +15% to all Castings and Level Abilities
    • Asteroid Jedi’s get a bonus to astrogate through an Asteroid Field of +20

DMG: (Level)d10 + (Level/2)(rd)d6

Success: +1d6 FPTs

Failure: +1d10 Force Level Cost

B. Black hole

Tying ones own Lifeforce to the majestic Black Hole is traditionally done by Dark side Jedis, because the temptation to use it’s power for evil is great. However, some brave and strong Light Side have been known to harness the power of the Black Hole and use it for good. But there weren’t many. This brings a Jedi closer to the chaotic forces of the universe, but in chaos there is always order, and in this order, Light Side Jedi’s are able to use Black Hole as their Stellar Element without falling to the Dark side.

Black Hole gives the following bonuses –

    • Gravitational Sensitivity – The Jedi has a sensitivity to gravitational forces of the universe. This allows him to sense when things are entering and exiting the Void and to Navigate the Void without a nav-computer (LOG roll to navigate).

Success: +1d6 FPTs

Failure: +1d10 Force Level Cost

C. Moon

The secrets of the moon are hidden in the night. Dark side Jedis more commonly choose Moon, however, some Light Side Jedis see goodness in the Moon Stellar Element. Moons are majestic bodies caught by the pull of larger bodies, worshipped by those that see them from the surface of these larger bodies, and sometimes feared. They represent the night, light in a sea of darkness, and mystery.
