He used his force powers to claim a lightsaber from the Chiss archives. The lightsaber had been discovered in the wreckage of the Outbound Flight vessel distroyed by Trawn. After he had his lightsaber a his personal Charric he stole a Clawcraft and sent his craft hurtling toward the Sith power. But he came out of hyper space and made a controlled crash on Fondor, he walked away but his ship had landed in quicksand. The dark side empowered him to float accros the sand to a solid part of land. From there he used the force to guide him to a secret ISB lab, he slaughtered all the Imperial troops there and took what thought would be useful.
He then took a Lambda-Class Shuttle with a prototype hyperdive, called it the Crimson Shadow and blasted off to the dark side powers.

well there are a few problems with it...


you saving throws look a little high for a level 1 pc, and you seem a little short on skills.

I don't have my book with me right now (i am at work), but if you want we could start building you a new pc?

If you want to build a new pc the first step is class and species.

First level classes are Soldger, Scounder, Fringer, Scout, Noble, Force Adapt, Jedi Guardian, and Jedi Counsalor.

OK, force adept, chiss and same age, colors, name and story. Is this possable? The reason I don't have a pc that is standard is that I rolled a dice for all of my values. I won't have the book until the 12, it will be that new revised one. Should we do this via the PMs?

na because right now i can only bring you part of the way, like i said i don't have my book on me right now so hopefully someone else, (dash, heavy, eets...) well show up and be able to help you with the rest.


oh btw i hope to get my new core book tonight, just hope the store has some left by the time i get off work...


So next step is to pick a force feat, you can have either alter, control, or sense. This will be needed to pick skills, so if you go here and go to the bottem, you will find a list of the force skills, and what feat you need for them, find the skills you would like to have at first and pick the needed feat. (Don't worry about Force-Sensitive, you already have that being force adapt)

Well don't worry about any skills yet, i just pointed you to that page so that you could look and see what feat you may want first...

Each of the three feats give you access to differnt skills, and at level 1 you only get 1 of the force feats.

So is alter the feat you want?

That's ten skills. You'll either have to take 2 of of two of them, or just delete 1 of the skills. Hope this helps!

Ok so 2 more feats....... how about I get a list of feats that a dark side adept might want. Like ones that help with killing. Do i auto get exotic weapon lightsaber? I didn't have enough cash for the core rule book of revised. Do you think I should put up a list of my Micros, it could take days to write the whole list

as a force adapt you don't get ewp(lightsaber) automaticly, but if you want it you can take it as one of your extra feats...

um i was asumming you were a human, sorry did you want to be a human?

and if you want to you can take control feat now, but you will get that feat for free in a few levels so you would kinda be wasting a feat...

Lightsaber throw is no longer a feat...

Ok well next is your VP and WP, let's see you get 13 WP and 9 VP

ok now let's see about your defense

+3 Class Bonus, +1 Dex Bonus, and then your base of 10 gives you a 14 Defense...I think(correct me if I'm wrong, Wraith)

I'm still not sure on your saves, so Wraith you'll have to help him there.

and now for your Skills, let's see. Well I'll let you take care of it

Your Ability Modifiers are:
Str +1
Dex+1
Con +1
Int +3
Wis +2
Cha +1

Now in the skills list in What you need to know about Skills and Feats it gives the corresponding Ability. That ability's modifier is what you add to the skill points you put into that skill. Have fun!

I'm gonna let you work that out but I will tell you your skills final values.

Climb +5
Hide +4
Jump +5
Listen +5
Spot +5
Survival +5
Treat Injury +6
Force Push +7
Force Grip +7
Move Object +7

Fort. Save: +3 (+1 Con. +2 Class)
Ref. Save: +1 (+1 Dex)
Will Save: +2 (+2 Wis)

I THINK that's correct (the save modifiers that is) o well Wraith plz confirm...

Ok Rep is 0
Init+1
ok I'll take it that since it's not as strong as a Blaster Rifle that your Charric is considered a pistol, meaning your attack bonus with it is well uh +1 (?) and your saber is the same. (Melee is Base attack+Strength Mod+Size, Range is Base Attack+Dex Mod+Size)

What else? EEK! I just found out, Charrics ARE Rifles meaning you are -3 with them since you don't get WP Blaster Rifles

well it looks like that's it. Hope all this helps

Well...I do have a few places open in my Comp. but I reccomend having a level 10 PC, and since Wraith seems to want to help (don't ask) I'll let him explain how to beef him up

Well, cblm, you'll be happy to know that Wraith fixed up your PC, so now it is officially complete.

(It's the one in the post where you say: This is what it looks like so far:

*yawn* Boba, maybe you should try looking around a bit before you start SHOUTING YOUR LUNGS OUT!!! Ok here's the deal, I don't mind helping you make a Character, but there aren't any games opening up besides mine, which I am officially closing today. (Not because of you, just because there's no response.)
