This homebrew Heroic Class is based on the Heroic Class of Force Adept in the RCR version of the Star Wars RPG from Wizards of the Coast. This Heroic Class was created by Matthew "Tao" Myers and was posted on the D20 Forums before the forums were shut down. The name was changed to avoid confusion with the Prestige Class of the same name, the Force Adept.
While many throughout the galaxy feel the gentle ebb and flow of The Force, very few find the will to dedicate themselves fully to its call. Even the Jedi and Sith, the most renowned practitioners of the ways of The Force, often depend and study the more martial skills sometimes losing sight of the more subtle aspects of the Living Force.
Force Prodigies are exceptionally rare, and dedicate a devotion to The Force greater than nearly every other being in the galaxy. They live and die by the will of The Force, bringing themselves ever closer to a complete understanding of its will and guidance.

At every odd-numbered level (1st, 3rd, 5th, and so on), a Force Prodigy gains a Talent. Like other characters that have the Force Sensitivity feat, Force Prodigies may select from any Force Talent Tree or Force Tradition Talent Tree for which the Force Prodigy qualifies. When gaining a talent from a Force Prodigy level, a Force Prodigy may also select that Talent from any Force Tradition without actually being a member of that tradition- provided the tradition has members that include the Force Prodigy’s Species, the Force Prodigy qualifies for the Talent, and it is approved by the GM. No Talent can be selected more than once unless expressly indicated.
At each even numbered level (2nd, 4th, 6th, etc), you gain a bonus Feat. This Feat must be selected from the related page (Bonus Feats (Force Prodigy)). As with normal Feats, you must meet the prerequisites to select the Feat. The Bonus Feat must be from the Bonus Feats (Force Prodigy), unless explicitly stated otherwise.
A 1st-level Force Prodigy starts play with 3d4×50 credits.
