Introduction to SkillsEdit

Welcome to the next step in creating your character and bringing them to life in the world of Star Wars The Lost Saga. This game is loosely based upon dice in the form of the 1d100 system. The system is relatively simple, you have [100] points to distribute amongst the skills. When you put points into the skill it increases the roll bonus that you have when you need to roll it, for example: Sallashaka has 10 in Persuasion, he attempts to talk to a random NPC to convince them to do something for him. The NPC will have a DC that Sallashaka has to meet to allow him to convince them to do it. Sallashaka will then roll 1d100+10 to see how well the NPC will respond to what he's trying to command.

Helping with the DiceEdit

As you may wonder there are quite a few interesting things with the dice besides the fact we follow the 1d100 system. There are such things as that the most important thing to remember is that there are certain rolls you can get that will increase or decrease your roll by a certain amount. Those rolls are 1, 2, and 3 with 98, 99, and 100 on the other end. Gaining a Natural, which means to get the roll without bonuses, can be either good or bad in those cases, the 1, 2, and 3 are rolls that are considered 'botches', while the 98, 99, and 100 are considered to be Critical Rolls. Each one adding on different numbers of rolls.

  • Rolling a natural 1 will net you a hefty -30 penalty to your roll. These are considered serious botches and might land you a injury if hit. So be careful!
  • Rolling a natural 2 will net you a decent -15 penalty to your roll. These are considered annoyance botches, and are very unlikely to net you an injury, though still not very fun.
  • Rolling a natural 3 will net you a mediocre -5 penalty to your roll. These are considered small botches, and can not get you an injury, but might wind up humiliating you in some way.
  • Rolling a natural 98 will net you a mediocre +5 boost to your roll, this is considered a small boost and a mediocre achievement that might gain recognition.
  • Rolling a natural 99 will net you a pretty awesome bonus of +15 to your roll total. This is noted when you excel at what you were doing and you might gain recognition for this.
  • Rolling a natural 100 will net you a godly bonus of +30 to your current roll total. This is when you go over and beyond everything that you expected in what you were doing showing excellence.

SynergyEdit

In this game, aside from the normal roll, there is a such thing as 'Synergy'. What is synergy you ask? Well Synergy are ways to boost your bonus to your roll by taking half of other skills that have -something- to do with the skill you are rolling for. How you get this together is simple, you take the highest roll and apply it as a full number, then take the other skills that have something to do with it and divide it by half rounding down, and then apply it to your roll to increase it! Interesting isn't it? Here is an Example: Sallashaka wants to persuade someone to do something as before, this time the DC is a little higher then he feels comfortable just rolling persuade. So he then puts his Charisma skill and Force Persuasion skill to work, due to it synergizing with Persuasion. His persuasion skill is 15, and both Force Persuade and Charisma are 10. You take the Persuasion skill and apply the full bonus of fifteen, and then take Force Persuade and Charisma and divide it by 2, that makes their addition 5, so now instead of rolling 1d100+15, he rolls 1d100+25 increasing his chance of a better roll. Thats all there is to it!

Limitation to the ForceEdit

There are some people who are attuned to the force, but do not have the training or mentality to progress farther in the force then a Jedi or Sith. These people are usually force sensitive and can find themselves able to use a basic amount of the force but not a majority amount of the force. Down below you will see a skill called 'Force Sensitivity', this decides how in-tune with the force you are. However, without Jedi/Sith training you can not go over the HALF WAY point of your Force Sensitivity. Also the Force Sensitivity skill can not be trained, period, by anyone but another Jedi, who is Master Level... This skill can not go over 10 and its done this way because the force based skills are a Jedi/siths strong point, much like the Information Network is the Agents strong point, while the Squads are a soldiers. Here is an Example: Da'phne who is a smuggler, has a 10 in Force Sensitivity, because of that -none- of her force skills can go over +5. Its really simple.

FormsEdit

Though forms are skills, we can not allow just anyone to have them. They are superior trained skills that are only accessed by Jedi and those using Lightsabers. When using forms you synergize with any basic combat action and some specialized actions like defending against others or blasters, the most specific one being the Soresu style. There will be a page dedicated to explaining forms and their specific uses and in reading it, I hope that you will find out what it synergizes with. Do try to remember that this is also another Jedi/sith specialization, normies are not allowed to have them. You may find information on forms in this location: Forms

Lightsaber LimitationsEdit

There is one final limitation to those without Jedi/Sith training. I know by now you're probably like: WE HAVE NO FREAKIN' FREEDOM. Well its all for canonality and to make you have the best Star Wars experience ever. As you know, Lightsabers are specialized equipment used by the Jedi/Sith. They are trained from a young age to use the lightsabers to the maximized level. Normals, without said training, are obviously not going to use it as well as a fully trained Jedi or Sith. However, we are not mean, we will allow you to train in using a lightsaber. However there are massive problems with this. These include: Jedi thinking you are sith, Sith thinking you are Jedi, Sith targeting you for making a mockery of them, and the most likely result of cutting something off or killing yourself during training. Do keep in mind that characters may NOT start with lightsabers period unless they are Jedi/Sith.

Skill Rank InformationEdit

You may notice that out by each skill there is a symbol, be it a dash, plus sign, or Asterisk. Each one represents a Rank, or Level, of the skill in question. The higher the rank the more it'll cost to upgrade at the beginning, and during training. The ratios are quite simple to understand and in understanding them you'll be able to create your character to better suit your needs. Do remember though, that skills can not go over 20 at the very beginning. The ratios are as so:

Low Tier Skill (-) = 1:1 Point Ratio

Medium Tier Skill (+) = 2:1 Point Ratio

High Tier Skill (*) = 3:1 Point Ratio

Here is an example of how to handle the Tier skills and their ratios: You start with 100 points. You take the skill Swords, that is a Low Tier Skill at (-), you decide to put 10 points into it, with a 1:1 Point Ratio you only spend 10 points on it. Then you move on to One Handed Melee, which is a Medium Tier Skill at (+), you decide to put another 10 points into it, but because of the 2:1 Point Ratio you have to fork over 20 points instead of 10. Then you decide to go to say, Lightsabers which is a High Tier Skill at (*), you decide to put 10 points into that, but due to it being a 3:1 Point Ratio you spend a total of 30 points instead of 10. This way we don't have gods in awkward tiers.
