View Full Version : D&D 3.5 Jedi? Help

2010-10-12, 07:54 AM
So long story short, I have a player who wants to try an Archaic Jedi for D&D 3.5 This would be a Jedi from so "long ago" in the general Star Wars setting that there would be no lightsaber, Jedi Order JUST being founded, etc. but I simply cannot find a decent one in searching. Meaning either I fail at searching, or there aren't any. So I challenge you! Someone help me find a decent Jedi base class that works in 3.5, or can be converted that doesn't use the saber.

The easiest and fastest way would be to use the Jedi Guardian/Jedi Consular classes directly from the SWRPG d20. Not sure if the Saga Edition would port to 3.x, but the revised edition would just fine.

Yeah, guess I just never saw the older one. I KNOW Saga won't port, lol

Well using normal 3.5 matirial, A tome of battle class would work like a Swordsage or Wareblade. But i think the most fitting would be a Psychic Warrior, and if you want something like a lightsaber but archaic you could try a adamantium sword (Ignores hardness of objects) and then throw on a flaming or other element damage for colour effect :smallbiggrin:

Personally I would go for PsyWarrior and get the feats that let him run up walls, and mabye use the martail adept feats for Jedi style manuevers

Warblade with Diamond Mind and Iron Heart stuff mixed with Psion (kineticist or telepath) going into Jade Phoenix Mage adapted for manifesters instead of arcane spellcasters.

A few manipulation and movement skill tricks would help as well.

M-Bark's suggestion is money.

I think Eladriel has a solid Manifester/Initiator prestige class patch running around somewhere also.


Found it! Obligatory Link below.

Ziegander did something like that recently called the Esper Knight (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=169532). It's a really cool option, incarnum use in a different way that is both flavorful and neat.

DaTedinator also did a really awesome Tome of Battle version, two Prestige Classes (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=145817) and a Discipline (Mental Grip (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=138037)). Definitely worth checking out if you're into Tome of Battle.

Beat me to it. Esper Knight rules.

None of the folks I ever run games for or play with are optimizers, most are the base class only types, so we rarely see mixtures. FOund out we had a copy of the old SW rulebook for d20, the one that's very similar to d20 modern. I'm converting a Jedi Consular for her, but thanks for the replies guys, was hoping for something easier, but just gives me something to make my player feel more special :)

Thanks man! :D (Even if it still isn't quite finished, at least it's fully playable.)

Did you ever get to play it in a game?

I'd just use the Psychic Warrior.
