View Full Version : SW Revised

As an aside to our regular DnD campaign due to absences, I was planning on transmuting the player characters into a fun little SWRPG session. We might come back to it on occasion if several people can't make our regular session but the others still have an RPG itch to scratch.

I was planning on playing in an era where the sith existed, are very evil, and sith swords and lightsabers clashed regularly. So, in SW revised edition, sith prestige classes gain lightsaber damage just like jedi prestige classes do. Would it cause any new imbalances to let the Sith Lord, Sith Warrior, and Sith Acolyte prestige classes apply their bonus lightsaber damage to the sith sword as well?

I can't think of a reason why not, and it seems very strange that the designers of the Dark Side sourcebook were so oddly specific about this not working. In fact, it doesn't make sense for a dark jedi who gets into a sith prestige class to EVER use he sith sword, despite it being really flavorful.
