02: Lifeforce & Jedi Levels
Before the Master Roll, the PC must be free of all obligations, but he can be in space or on a planet. As previously explained, the success or failure of this roll determines the success of failure of the PC search of a Master and learning of the beginnings of the Jedi way.
Once the Master roll succeeds, the new Jedi must build himself a new Ability Score called a Lifeforce (LF). To build a Lifeforce, the player must either transfer points from XP or transfer points from Ability Scores.
Building LF: The Jedi has the option to transfer no less than 1 and no more than 5 points from any Ability Score except PER/LDR to build his beginning LF. These points are then permanently subtracted from the Ability Score and allocated to LF. XP can be transferred to LF on a 1-to-1 basis.
A Lifeforce is the inner soul of the Jedi and measure the Level of the Jedi power and knowledge in the Force. The minimum the Jedi has to have to be 1st Level is 33. The Jedi cannot use his Level Abilities until his LF is at 33. The Lifeforce/Level table shows the progression of a Jedi’s Level as he increases his Lifeforce
Increasing and Restoring LF: Force points are gained through successful use of Level Abilities and Castings. To increase LF through the life of the Jedi, these points can be transferred to LF to increase it, on a 1-to-1 basis. Some Castings, on the other hand, require LF points to be spent. The first obligation of a Jedi once he receives Force Points for a successful cast, is to use them to restore LF.
Jedi Knight Levels
A Jedi progresses through life, gaining experience. As he does this, he builds up his Lifeforce and gains Jedi Levels. As a Jedi goes through Levels, he gains powers based on these Levels called Level Abilities. Once a Jedi has reached a level, he cannot go down, even if his Lifeforce (see Lifeforce) is lowered. These abilities have no Force Point cost to use, normally, unless otherwise stated.
A Jedi can use his Level Abilities to get Force Points (see Force Points) for later use in gaining Castings.
Below is the equation for Force Points gained from Level Abilities. This must be calculated after every use.
Level Ability Force Points (FPTs): [Success Rate/20] (rd) +1D6
Use Limitation: Level Abilities have a limit to how many times they can be used per standard day (20 hours). Usage is according to this table –
