Force Lance (Int)

by Carl Brown

Light Side Force Skill; Trained Only; Requires the Force-Sensitive and Alter Feats

This skill has been used by few Jedi because of its startling similarity to Force Lightning. As with the latter skill, the Force user draws energy to himself to create crackling bolts of kinetic energy.

Note - Plo Koon uses this skill in the video game "Jedi Power Battles".

Check: A Force Lance check sets the DC for the target's Fortitude saving throw. On a failed save, a target takes 1d8 points of energy damage and is stunned 1d4+1 rounds. On a successful save, a target takes half damage and is not stunned.
  Any target with at least one-half cover (such as one standing behind another target) is protected from the effect and takes no damage.

Result DC

Special: Force Lance has a range of 10m, and covers an area 6m wide extending out from you in the direction you are facing, and therefore can affect more than one target at a time.
  You can take 10 when using Force Lance, but you can't take 20.
  This skill may be used against Yuuzhan Vong, but at a -10 penalty.

Time: Force Lance is an attack action.

Vitality Point Cost: 6
