Making a Sith Apprentice[edit]

The Sith Apprentice are very similar Jedi but have turned to the dark side. They can wear Heavy armor unlike Jedi and train their tough bodies in the ways of "the Force" (a non-deity attached divine magic source) in order to cast spells and use their special abilities.

Abilities: A Sith Apprentice depends on Strenth for Force abilities unlike the Jedi that requires Wisdom.

Races: Any race can become a Sith. In most cases Sith will attempt to trick a race before enslaving it, because it is easier to do so.

Alignment: Sith must be Lawfull Evil.

Starting Gold: 6d4x10 gp (120 gp).

Starting Age: Simple.

Class Features[edit]

A Sith can choose for his lightsaber to be either a longsword, bastard sword, or a two-bladed sword, each of tainted energy. However, unlike normal tainted energy weapons, a lightsaber can harm undead; constructs; and objects, and deals damage to the armor and shield equal to the damage given to the defender (minus hardness, min 1 excpet against adamantine). The hilt is also unique in sturdiness and can come in many designs. A Sith can choose whatever design for a hilt and whatever color of a lightsaber he wishes but prefer red.

Force Block At 1st level, if a Sith concentrates (DC 10 + rounds concentrating + any damage taken), he can block any object coming his way. At first level, he can only block 10 pounds of matter.
