Force Power: Remain Conscious
Control Difficulty: Easy for stunned characters, Moderate for incapacitated characters, Difficult for mortally wounded characters.
Required Powers: Control Pain
Effect: Remain conscious allows a Jedi to remain conscious even after suffering injuries which would knock her unconscious. When a character with this power suffers this kind of injury, she loses all other actions for the rest of the round but she is still conscious (a character without this power would simply pass out). At the beginning of the next round, the character may attempt to activate the power — this must be the first action of that round; the Jedi cannot even dodge or parry. If the roll is unsuccessful, the character passes out immediately. If the roll is successful, the Jedi may only perform one other action that round — often the character will attempt to control pain. The character may make a last-ditch heroic effort before passing out. After that other action has been completed, the Jedi will lapse into unconsciousness (unless she has activated control pain or done something else to stay conscious).
