Force Power: Force Stealth
Control Difficulty: Moderate
Effect: This power allows a Jedi to meditate and lose himself in the Force to avoid being detected by other Force users.
If successful, the user masks his or her presence in the Force, evading other Force-users trying to sense the user’s presence with life detection, life sense, or sense Force.
If another Force user tries to sense the user’s presence, the user can oppose the Force user’s sense roll with a control roll. If the user’s control roll exceeds the opponent’s sense roll, the user successfully evades detection. The opponent detects the user’s presence if the control roll exceeds the Force-user’s sense roll.
If several Force-users try to detect the user, the user makes a control roll against the opponent with the highest sense roll.
This power lasts ten minutes, and the user can reroll to reactivate it. If the user should use any other Force power during the ten-minute time limit, the user automatically reestablishes his or her connection to the Force, canceling this power.
Game Note: A Jedi who uses this power creates an emptiness in the Force, and Force-users can detect a Jedi using this power by searching for this emptiness, provided they know what they are looking for.
Background: Force stealth, also referred to as Force Concealment or Buried Presence, was a power that was used by highly skilled Force-sensitives to mask their Force alignment (Light or Dark), their ability to use the Force or even their entire presence from other Force-sensitives.
