We're probably sticking with the force powers seen in the movies. The EU stuff tends to make the Jedi overpowered.
Yes, there will be a RPG sort of skills system. We're going to have a open skills (no class restrictions) system with an optional leveling up system based on score.
There's no set time period but I'd say the movie saga time since that's what the mod is based on.
