Hah! I've already been talking* to my GM about getting a so-called lightwhip for my Bothan archaeologist. So there, Lara Croft!

*facetious for the most part, but...


I just took a look at the current lightsaber variants, and realized that it is pretty similar to a mix between the lightsaber pike and the double-bladed lightsaber, so I used those as the basis, and tweaked it from there.

Lightwhip
Skill: Lightsaber
Damage: 6
Crit: 2
Range: Engaged
Encum: 1
HP: 4
Price: (R) 18,600
Rarity: 10
Special: Breach 1, Deflection 1, Sunder, Unwieldy 3

The lightwhip hilt varies right in line with the rest, costing 600 credits for 0 base damage, and losing Breach and Sunder capabilities.

Speaking of hilts... Is there errata to reconcile the hard points being identical between the bare hilts (no crystals) and the 'stock' lightsabers, which already have crystals in them?

Could you kick off a new thread for discussion of the Lightwhip instead of resurrecting a two year old thread that only vaguely touched on it?

I don't really buy the Deflection ability as an inherent lightwhip power. You can use the Reflect talent, sure, but I think the only weapons with Deflection in the official products are shields and shield-like things. Y'know, they can reasonably block a shot without the force or special training.

You may find a lot of resistance to this particular weapon, though -- the lightwhip is one of the most hated weapons the comics line ever created.
