Lightsaber (Pathfinder Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
A lightsaber is a highly customizable weapon that is often built from scratch but it's wielder.
Lightsabers were generally used for both offense and defense. A lightsaber could cut through virtually anything, from enemies to blast doors. The only ways to block the incoming attack of a lightsaber was with a weapon made with material that conducts energy, such as an electrostaff, Z6 riot control baton, or simply another lightsaber. When used defensively, a Force-sensitive could deflect blaster bolts with a lightsaber, and with skill, could even reflect the shots back toward the shooter or some other target. Experienced Jedi could even employ their lightsabers to absorb Force lightning. Most practitioners used one single-bladed lightsaber, though some used double-bladed lightsabers or even multiple lightsabers at once.
Lightsabers have three parts that are combined to make the weapon, a hilt which determines reach and special materials it may count as to overcome effects like regeneration, kyber crystal which determines the damage and various buffs, and focusing crystal which determines the weapon's critical range.
All lightsabers are energy weapons and overcome any DR. They cannot be used to do non-lethal damage. All lightsabers weigh 1 pound. Unless said otherwise lightsabers do not add strength or dexterity to the damage. A creature must have Lightsaber training to successfully use a lightsaber. If a creature attempts to use it without this ability there is a 50% chance that they accidentally hit themselves. Lightsabers are considered a one handed light weapon.
