PostSubject: LIGHTSABER FORM VI: Niman   Tue 27 Dec - 10:20


Niman: Form VI, also known as Niman, the Way of the Rancor, the Moderation Form, and the diplomat's form, was the sixth form of the seven forms of lightsaber combat. This fighting style was a hybrid martial art created by effectively combining elements of the preceding lightsaber forms into a single, generalized form. Niman balanced out between the various specializations of the other forms, covering many of the basic moves, but focusing on overall moderation. This resulted in a fighting style that lacked a significant advantage, but also lacking any serious drawbacks, and thereby not leaving adherents as exposed as some of the more aggressive or specialized forms. Overall, Niman had a fairly relaxed focus on bladework, designed as a simple, easily mastered fighting form for Jedi who preferred to devote most of their time to study and diplomacy. Despite this, it could be absolutely deadly in the hands of a skilled practitioner, as demonstrated by such notables as Exar Kun.

To compensate for the relaxed focus on bladework and lack of significant specialization, Niman training regimens encouraged the inclusion of Force-based attacks in combat, such as telekinetic pulls and shoves used in sync with lightsaber strikes. Also, as Niman was developed from two pre-existing martial arts fighting forms that both emphasized the use of dual-blades, it provided a firm foundation for duelists looking to study into such practices. Ultimately, Niman's success in combat was dependent on a practitioner's intuition and creativity in combat, rather than the rote responses common to the other forms.

Gameplay: Niman can counter Gun Attacks, Force Lighting, Physical Objects, Lightsaber Attacks. This form requires any lightsaber to use. Unlike other Lightsaber Forms that require feat points to master, Niman can use force points for that too. Unless class specifically gives this form, you need to learn Form I Shi-Cho Rank 3 to unlock this form.
Use: Free Action

Niman Rank 1: When using a Saber Skill you add charisma modifier to rolls as a bonus while in this elegant lightsaber form.
