Model: Kai Brightstar’s Second Lightsaber
Type: Melee weapon
Availability: 4, X
Game Notes: A training lightsaber is, in most respects, like a standard lightsaber, with a few exceptions. Firstly, while the blade can block blaster bolts (with the Lightsaber Combat Force power), these bolts cannot be deflected at targets. It is also much less lethal than a standard lightsaber. It can only inflict a maximum damage result of “Wounded” to any target struck (any result more fantastic than “Wounded” is treated as a Wounded result). Last, training lightsabers do not focus their power strongly enough to cut through objects. When used against inanimate objects, the damage of a training lightsaber is reduced to 2D. If an attacking character misses the difficulty number by more than 10 points (the base difficulty, not their opponent’s parry total), the character has injured himself with the lightsaber.
Background: This green-bladed lightsaber was formerly wielded by Grand Master Yoda and later gifted to Jedi Initiate Kai Brightstar during the High Republic Era. Brightstar initially lost his lightsaber to save his friend Nubs from falling off the Crimson Firehawk. Kai would use his lightsaber during a training session against a training droid.
