Force-user[edit]

Force-users are beings who are highly attuned to the Force. Force-sensitives can, with training, learn to sense and manipulate the Force. Force sensitives who gain powers and abilities through the Force become Force Adepts. The Force has two sides, the light and the dark, the ones who choose the light are known as Jedi and are the peacekeepers of the land. The Sith harness the powers of the dark side, vying for power and money through hatred and rage. There are few force-users who are on neither side; these Force-users are called Gray Jedi and they walk the line between light and dark.

    "You've taken your first step into a larger world." ―Obi-Wan Kenobi, to Luke Skywalker

Midi-chlorians[edit]

Midi-chlorians are microscopic, intelligent life forms that originated from the foundation of life in the center of the galaxy, and ultimately resided within the cells of all living organisms, thereby forming a symbiotic relationship with their hosts. The Force spoke through the midi-chlorians, allowing certain beings to use the Force if they were sensitive enough to its powers.

    “Do. Or do not. There is no try” ―Yoda, to Luke Skywalker

Awoken Force-sensitive[edit]

Additionally, Force-sensitive powers could lay dormant for a long time, with this person feeling something inside of them but never knowing what it was. A dormant Force-sensitive can not utilize the Force until their powers are awoken by a strong encounter with another Force-sensitive who is trained in the powers of the Force or by an object associated with the Force, such as an energized weapon.

    "The Force is unusually strong with him, that much is clear." ―Qui-Gon Jinn, about Anakin Skywalker

Creating a Force-user[edit]

As you create your force-user character, consider the character’s relationship to your alignment. Your morals and beliefs affect your subclass. Think of your ancestry and upbringing; were your parents both force-users, just one parent, or are you the first in your family. Or were you created by a dark Sith Lord to carry out his wrong doing. How long have you known you have had powers; have you known since birth or did it lay dormant in you and you are just now discovering it? What was your upbringing like, was the Force accepted in your community or was it shunned? Did you train in a Jedi temple, under a Sith, or on your own? All of these are used to mold a force-user into your campaign.

Quick Build

You can make a force-user quickly by following these suggestions. First, make Dexterity your highest ability score, followed by Wisdom. (Some force-users who focus on heavier weapons make Strength higher than Dexterity.) Second, choose the hermit background.

Energized Weapon[edit]

By energizing a weapon you gain the ability to use different forms in combat. To Energize a weapon you must spend three long rests, half an hour of each long rest, meditating to focus your energy into the weapon. You may only Energize a weapon if it is a Dagger, a Shortsword, a Scimitar, a Rapier, a Quarterstaff, or a Longsword.. The weapons you start with are already Energized if on the list above. When holding, you can turn your Energized weapon on or off as a free action; when on, it emits a low purple glow. You may only use the Combat Forms when the weapon is Energized and turned on. At 2nd level your Energized weapon deals an additional 1d4 of lightning damage. The amount of dice used increases once every four levels thereafter, as shown in the Energized Weapon column on the Force-user table.

Combat Forms[edit]

Combat forms allow you to fight in different ways depending on your situation. You may only use one combat form at a time. When you roll for initiative you must choose a form to use, to change forms you must use a bonus action. When you reach 11th level you can choose to master one of your forms, this increases your knowledge and effectiveness with the form. You learn new forms at 1st, 4th, 7th, and 10th level.

Form I: Shii-Cho[edit]

While using this form, enemies do not get advantage when flanking you. Additionally you can disengage as a bonus action if there are two or more enemies within 5 feet of you.

Mastered: You can perform one attack roll on each enemy within 5 feet of you.

    "It is simple, and its simplicity is strength." ―Kreia

Form II: Makashi[edit]

While using this form, as long as there is only one enemy within 5 feet of you; you can jump back 5 feet after hitting an enemy with an attack roll and gain +2 AC when attacked by that same enemy until the start of your next turn.

Mastered: You can now gain advantage on all attacks as long as there is only one enemy within 5 feet of you.

    "He is a fencer. Leverage, position, advantage—they are as natural to him as breathing." ―Qui-Gon Jinn's spirit to Yoda on Count Dooku, a Makashi master.

Force Energy[edit]

Starting at 2nd level, you learn how to harness the powers of the Force. To use the Force, you expend Energy Points. Your Force-user level determines the number of Energy Points you have, as shown in the Energy Points column on the Force-user table. You start out knowing two Force abilities. You learn more Force abilities as you gain levels in this class. When you spend an Energy Point, it is unavailable until you finish a long rest, at the end of which you regain all of your expended Energy Points. Some of your Force abilities require you to make an attack roll or have your target make a saving throw to resist the effect. The saving throw and attack bonus is calculated as follows:

Force Energy save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Wisdom modifier

Spellcasting Focus: Instead of using a spellcasting focus you have to have an open hand.

Force Shove[edit]

At 2nd level, as an action you can spend 1 Energy Point to push a creature within 20 feet of you 10 feet away from you. The creature must make a Strength saving throw. The creature gets shoved on a failed save, and stays in place on a successful one.

Force Pull[edit]

Also at 2nd level, as an action you can spend 1 Energy Point to pull a creature within 20 feet of you 10 feet towards you. The creature must make a Strength saving throw. The creature gets pulled on a failed save, and stays in place on a successful one. If you pull a creature within 5 feet of you, you get an opportunity attack if available.

Ways of the Force[edit]

At 3rd level, the Force (DM) will take into consideration all your life’s choices and give you a path based on your alignment and background. The Force will give you the title of Jedi, Sith, or Gray Jedi. All of these are detailed at the end of the class description. This grants you features at 3rd level and again at 6th, 9th, 12th and 17th level.

Ability Score Improvement[edit]

When you reach 4th level, and again at 8th, 12th, 16th and 19th level, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. As normal, you can't increase an ability score above 20 using this feature.

Form III: Soresu[edit]

Unlocked at 4th level, while using this form, you can use your reaction to deflect incoming projectiles. If an enemy hits you with a ranged weapon attack you can use your reaction to make a Dexterity check, if your total is greater than the projectile’s damage you negate all damage and reflect it back at the enemy dealing 1d10 damage.

Mastered: You can do the same as listed above for ranged spell attacks using half the damage of the spell, and you have advantage on Dexterity saving throws against spells.

    “You must rely on quickness, cunning and, most of all, patience to best your enemies." ―Darth Zannah

Form IV: Ataru[edit]

Also at 4th level, while using this form, your speed increases by 5 feet. In addition, when you use your action to damage a target, you can use your bonus action to make another attack on the same target.

Mastered: Your speed is now increased by 10 feet and you can double the Energized Weapon dice for the bonus action attack with this form.

    "Ataru is the name given to the movements of this form—though it is aggressive, it is focused, and its best use is in combat against a single opponent." ―Zez-Kai Ell

Focused Mind[edit]

At 5th level, when you take a short rest, you can regain all of the energy points you have expended. Also, you have advantage on saving throws against being charmed, and magic can’t put you to sleep.

Form V: Shien[edit]

At 7th level, you unlock Shien Form. While using this form, if an enemy misses a melee weapon attack against you; you can immediately use your reaction to make an attack against that target with advantage.

Mastered: If an enemy misses a ranged weapon attack against you; you can immediately use your reaction to move up to your speed and then if available make an attack against that target with advantage.

    "One must question any discipline that has lethal potential. However, if it serves to suppress violent opposition and preserve peace, I believe it is a discipline worth knowing." ―Cin Drallig

Form VI: Niman[edit]

Also at 7th level, you unlock Niman Form. While in Niman Form, as a bonus action you can perform a Force Shove or Force Pull at no Energy Point cost.

Mastered All Force abilities while using this form require two less Energy Points to cast (Minimum of one).

Form VII: Juyo[edit]

At 10th level, while using this final form, your weapon attacks score a critical hit on a 19 and above.

Mastered: your weapon attacks now score a critical hit on 18 and above.

Jedi[edit]

Jedi are members of the Jedi Order, an ancient order of protectors united by their ability to harness the power of the Force. Adhering to a doctrine that favored the light side of the Force, the Jedi aspired to attain a state of inner tranquility through calmness and meditation while avoiding emotions affiliated with the dark side of the Force.

Sith[edit]

The Sith Order was an ancient institution of Force-wielders devoted to the dark side of the Force. Driven by their emotions, most prominently hate, anger, and greed, the Sith were deceptive and obsessed with gaining power no matter the cost.

However, those who were considered to be true Gray Jedi met both qualifications and did not belong to any particular Force tradition.

    "Well, I assure you, I see more grey than dark or light. I'm just a stubborn old man, tired of the foolishness of others." ―Jolee Bindo to Revan
