- Acolyte (1/3): 2 Force Power Points 
- Acolyte (2/3): 2 Force Power Points 
- Acolyte (3/3): 2 Force Power Points

   Lightsaber Deflection

Force Combination Attack: Once per combat round, a force user can use a force attack as a combi attack without a penalty to their attack roll. 

Lightsaber Deflection: A sith with this ability can, if wielding a lightsaber deflect blaster bolts and solid projectiles. When used as a defensive action, the force user can roll twice on their defensive roll. 

Additional Force Attack: Once per combat round, a force user can, instead of a combi attack, chose to use two force powers at the same time. Meaning when you reach a (0/3) you begin learning about the powers, but won't get your first powers till after your first trial on the rank.  

Lightsaber Reflection: When the force user successfully deflects a blaster or solid shot, they can instead attempt to reflect it back on the shooter. After a successful lightsaber deflection, the force user makes a separate attack roll to see if they can hit the shooter with their own attack.



Starting hook - From the academy to here

No matter where you came from before joining us... 
No matter what trials and obstacles you needed to overcome to get here... 

Before coming here as an Acolyte you faced your first lessons of sith life in one such academy or along the path that led you here by your own means. 

An Acolyte knows that everyone around them will sooner or later be a threat to their goal. For most, the others will be a wall in their path. 
Some will break, giving proof of their weakness as their own existence dissipates into nothingness. 
Others, instead, will scale the wall without remorse for the rubble that is left behind in their wake and pursuit of power. 

By what ever means, those who succeed in coming here have proven that they are simply better, their passions more pure - their thirst stronger. 

So the real question remains... Are you worthy...? 

Some prove themselves at the right time and get noticed, but most are not so lucky as to find a master. 
They instead get sent to the most renowned of Power bases in hopes of proving themselves useful to the empire through them. 

Here you have a new chance to find a master and raise above the herd.
