Force Of Will

Force of Will
Control Difficulty
E (10)
Power may be kept ‘up’.
Effect – By using Force of Will, the Force-user uses their Willpower skill to fight the effects of hostile Force powers. If faced with a telekinetic- or mind-based power, the Force-user’s Willpower skill roll may be added to either the Control or Perception code. The Control (or Perception) plus Willpower total is referred to as the “protection number”.

  • If the attack roll > protection number

The attack hits and has full effect

  • If the attack roll > Control (or Perception) <= protection number

The Force-user is “Battered”

Battered: Subtract 1D from the Force-user’s Willpower skill. The Force-user can still continue to defend but must do so with the decreased Willpower. Reroll for a new protection number. If the Force-user’s Willpower ever reaches 0D, the Force of Will is automatically dropped and the Force-user can only resist with Control or Perception.

  • If the attack roll <= Control (or Perception) roll

The attack has no effect.


  1. Force of Will does not protect against Force Lightning, Force Storms or objects hurled by Telekinesis, since in each case the power creates a physical manifestation;
  2. It takes 1 day or 1 hour in Emptiness (or Rage) to recover 1D of damage from "battering of the will".
