04: Jedi Casting Powers
New Castings are “bought” through Force Points by the Player, but are learned by the Jedi through book learning, from his Master, or some Psychic linkage the Jedi has with his Master. (This linkage is lost when the Jedi dishonors his Master and goes to the opposite side).
Each Casting has the following –
Minimum Level – Jedi Level required to buy the Casting power at normal cost.
FPT Cost – Base Number of points the Jedi spends to buy the Casting, at Minimum Level.
Force Level Cost – Number of Force Level it costs to use the Casting (+1 per Level above the Minimum – as the Jedi goes up in Level, the more it costs to cast lower level Castings because they get stronger)
Lifeforce Cost – Number of Lifeforce points it costs to use the Casting (+1 per Level above the Minimum – as the Jedi goes up in Level, the more it costs to cast lower level Castings because they get stronger)
Honor Cost – Some Castings are inherently Dark or Light. These will either add or subtract to a Jedi’s Honor Points. The casting must be successful to gain or lose the Honor points.
Percentage Chance – Success rate (+5% per level above Minimum Level)
Buying Different Level Castings: The different level castings do not mean that they are restricted to that level.
A high level Jedi can buy lower level Castings. The following table shows the reduction in Force Point Cost to buy lower level Castings. Round up results. Force Level Cost and Lifeforce Cost stay the same.
|Level of Jedi||Casting Level||Casting Level||Casting Level||Casting Level||Casting Level||Casting Level|
A lower level Jedi can buy higher level Castings, but the cost to buy and to cast is higher.
|Level of Jedi||Casting Level||Casting Level||Casting Level||Casting Level||Casting Level|
Force Level Cost increased by + (2 x [Casting Level – Jedi Level])
Lifeforce Level (if it applies) + [Casting Level – Jedi Level]
However, the benefit of using higher level Castings is increased. Double the amount of Force Points gained from successfully using a higher level Casting. However, failure has a price. The Jedi receives 3d10 Damage along with whatever the Failure penalties are for the Casting.
