OK, so I have hit a little hurdle in conversion. Force Powers.
Here are the 2 options:
**1. Talents requiring a Force Use Skill Check to succeed.**
Initially, I was just going to do them as talents, as in //Coriolis//. Simply roll a Skill check for success. However Force/Mystic powers are pretty good and to balance that in //Coriolis// the GM gets Darkness Points to use vs the PCs.
Cool idea. I like it, and so easy to convert to Dark Side Points. HOWEVER, it feels inherently wrong to punish Jedi every time they use their FOrce Powers - it feels even stupider to accumulate DPs if they use their powers for good/ heroically.
I am going to have DPs in the game, but they will be a lot less common that in a //Coriolis// game - where the 'dark b/w the stars is pervasive. There, tapping into the mystical is tapping into the Darkness. Jedi etc tap into the LIGHT side of the Force.
If used for evil/selfish/etc purposes, happy to award DPs to DM, but not every use.
So, is just requiring a roll enough of a balancing factor. Meaning, do people mind if Jedi can do all these amazing things with one skill that will overshadow others skills for sure.
**2. Force Powers as Mutant Powers**
Or do we limit the use of Force powers by treating them like Mutant powers. You don't get many Mutant Points in //Mutant: Year Zero//, but we could allow more. Could even have the mechinc about getting more if you 'Trust to the FOrce' more.
All fun, but it means another subsystem.
Moreso though, Mutant & Animal powers spend points and the power automatically succeeds. I am not a fan of Force powers always succeeding. I much prefer a roll.
So I am at a quandary. Other option is to combine. Have Force Points to spend but still require a roll? Which makes me think just use the 1st option. But again, seems pretty good. Some (inc me) are OK with Jedi seeming awesome, but some will not like this. Mind you, you can still only perform 1 action per turn anyway.
Anyway, which way to go? I want to keep simple. These systems are already in place, so which one or combo?
