Through meditation and contemplation of the deepest mysteries of The Force, some individuals transcend the dogma in which they were raised as they reach a new and deeper understanding of their connection to the universe around them. The ebb and flow of life- quickening, growing, struggling, dying- becomes a ceaseless chorus of destiny. Some Force Disciples tap into this power, become one with it, and speak it's wisdom to others. Others might instead enslave destiny, twist it's vision, and corrupt others for the sake of power.
Force Disciples, like Force Adepts, exist in every Force Tradition. Even the Jedi and the Sith have had Force Disciples among their ranks, but the dogma of these Force Traditions tends to discourage such an eclectic approach to The Force. However, in less well-known dominant Force Traditions- such as The Baran Do Sages, The Witches of Dathomir, The Gand Findsmen, and The Seyugi Dervishes- Force Disciples hold great power and influence, shaping their Force Traditions for centuries to come. Force Adepts who become Force Disciples may wield power and influence over entire civilizations.

Game Rule Information[edit | edit source]
The following are the features of the Force Disciple Prestige Class:
|LEVEL||BASE ATTACK BONUS||CLASS FEATURES|
|1st||+0||Defense Bonuses, Indomitable, Prophet, Talent|
|2nd||+1||Force Secret, Prophet|
|3rd||+2||Force Secret, Prophet, Talent|

Hit Points[edit | edit source]
At each level, Force Disciples gain 1d8 hit points + their Constitution modifier.
Force Points[edit | edit source]
Force Disciples gain a number of Force Points equal to 7 + one-half their Character Level, rounded down, each time they gain a new level in this Prestige Class (Due to their strong connection to The Force, Force Disciples gain more Force Points than most other Prestige Classes).
Defense Bonuses[edit | edit source]
Indomitable[edit | edit source]
Force Disciples are immune to Mind-Affecting effects.
Prophet[edit | edit source]
Every time you gain a level in this Prestige Class, you receive two Destiny Points instead of the usual one. In addition, you may sacrifice this extra Destiny Point immediately after gaining a Class Level. If you choose to do so, you instead receive a prophetic vision from The Force; the content of this vision is determined by the GM. The vision is instantaneous, so no time is required to exercise this option. Upon seeing the vision, you have the option to choose a new Destiny, so long as the new Destiny is related in some way to the vision. The GM is the final arbiter of what new Destiny (Or Destinies) are appropriate.
Talents[edit | edit source]
At every odd-numbered level (1st, 3rd, 5th, and so on), the Force Disciple selects a Talent. The Force Disciple must meet the prerequisites (If any) of the chosen Talent. No Talent can be selected more than once unless expressly indicated. A Force Disciple can select a Talent from one of the Talent Trees (Force Disciple) or Force Talent Trees (Including Force Tradition Talent Trees).
