Name: Empowered Forging
Skills: Sense, Control, and Alter
Description: This is a Force technique which imbues a metal with latent Force empowerment during the forging process. Empowered Forging is a difficult and taxing procedure which requires the Jedi to focus his energies and thoughts on the metal being forged in much the same way that he would attune and imbue a lightsaber crystal. If successful, the material becomes impregnated with the power of the Force, and is automatically 'activated' by a Jedi using the Unarmed Focus power. Once activated, the material takes on the physical resistance properties of an object under the effect of Empower Weapon; capable of deflecting blaster bolts and withstanding lightsaber strikes. It does not increase the damage dealt. If any roll is botched during the forging process, the material is rendered unuseable, and the Jedi must begin the process again with new ore. This power may only be used on certain materials, up to the discretion of the GM.
Pre-Requisites: Absorb/Dissipate Energy, Concentration, and Unarmed Focus
