Though some small Force abilities may be instinctive or learned from
experience, to become a powerful Jedi you must train. Training with a
Jedi Knight or Jedi Master is the fastest way to learn, but a Force user
can also learn by himself through trial and error.
"I want to learn the ways of the Force and become a Jedi Knight like
my father." - Luke Skywalker, A New Hope
"You will be trained as a Jedi, I swear It." - Obi-Wan Kenobi, The
A student may improve with the Force more quickly if he trains with a
Jedi Knight or Jedi Master that has a higher amount of Force Experience
(FXP) than himself.
A Force-sensitive gains power in the Force by increasing their Force
Experience level. Each Force Experience level will give one Force Skill
Point (FSP). Each level requires (100 * ((n-1)*(n/2)))FXP to
reach. E.g. Level 1 = 0 Level 2 = 100 Level 3 = 300 Level 4 = 600 Etc.
A Force-sensitive may train to try to increase their Force abilities.
A student may train with a teacher, alone, or with a Holocron. Training
takes 1 hour and neither the student nor the teacher (if any) may move
during this period. Training may be aborted at any time, and will also
abort if either the teacher or student takes damage, or if either
teacher or student is arrested.
For every 100 FXP earned, the Jedi will gain an additional
Force-point in their pool.
FSP may be spent to increase any power when the Force-sensitive has
enough. Force powers require the following amounts of FSP: Level 0: 0
pts Level 1: 1 pt Level 2: 2 pts Level 3: 4 pts Level 4: 8 pts Level 5:
A Jedi has some innate knowledge of the Force and how to manipulate
it even before they become aware of their Force Sensitivity. However,
without FP, they cannot actively use these abilities The Jedi's Facets
determine the FSP they have to spend on starting powers in that facet.
The Universal Facet does NOT get starting points, and must be entirely
Starting FSP = Facet Points/10 (rounding up)
Ahsoka Tano has a Telekinesis facet value of 57 and would
get 6 starting points to spend in that facet.
A Master is extremely experienced in the ways of the Force. A Knight
or Master can function as a teacher. A Jedi trainee may have multiple
teachers in their lives. A teacher knows many ways of drawing upon and
controlling the Force, and can pass these on to the student.
Luke Skywalker trained Lightsaber Deflection under his
mentor Ben Kenobi in the Millennium Falcon. Years later Luke Skywalker
Travels to Dagobah to train under Master Yoda.
Training with a teacher greatly increases the student's chances of
learning about the Force. A successful training results in: 15 XP and 100 FXP
for the student, and 5 XP and 25 FXP for the teacher.
The probability of success is ( (Teacher FXP - Student
FXP)/100 )%. Minimum chance of success is always 20%. Maximum chance of
success is always 90%.
Before the Master may invite an apprentice to learn the Force under them,
the apprentice must add the Master as "Friendly" on their IFF list. A Master
and his apprentice can leave each other at any time.
When training with a teacher, the student gains the benefits of the
experience and insight which that teacher has to offer. The teacher
knows what works and what doesn't. He knows a proven method of learning
because he has already been a student. Without a teacher, a student is
at a severe disadvantage. Everything the student does is through trial
and error. Simply put, it takes much longer! The time taken per session
is the same and the likelihood of success is 20% for a session. A
successful training results in: 15 XP and 100 FXP.
Emperor Palpatine wishes to increase his power in the Force.
Unfortunately for him (fortunately for the galaxy) no living Jedi knows
more about the Dark Side than he does. He must meditate, study, and make
random attempts at increasing his control of the Force without the
benefit of a teacher to guide him. After nearly 400 training sessions,
he has successfully raised his FXP by 3200 - barely a third of the way
to his next FSP.
For over a millennium, Jedi have used primitive holographic
technology to create aids for Jedi instructional training. The holocron
is a small, hand-held cube that contains a force echo of the Jedi who
created it and projects his/her holographic image. The holocron can
teach long after its creator has died, and it serves as a very useful
teaching aid and a means to preserve powerful Jedi abilities despite the
loss of Jedi masters.
A holocron serves as a digital teacher, and can "learn" only from a
Master recording lessons into it. If a blank holocron is found by a
Jedi, they can then begin recording lessons into the holocron;
effectively causing the holocron to become their student for training
purposes. With each successful recording the holocron gains 100 FXP and
the Jedi recording the lessons gains 25 FXP.
All controls for a holocron are internal and can only be activated by
a Force-Sensitive character. Security devices prevent tampering with the
cube to access the data. When a student uses the holocron, they can
learn from it as if a Jedi teacher were present of the equivalent
knowledge as how many recordings are on the holocron. The success of a
student learning from a holocron is the same as if the teacher with the
same amount of FXP as held by the holocron were teaching the student. A
successful training results in: 5 XP and 100 FXP for the student.
