Pyros would just use the force. 'Duh. Buncha light sider creeps be all like: "Pyros, you used force lightning to burn that guy's skin off! You must step away from the dark side!" and sucka Dark Sides be like "Pyros, you need to give up all that goody goody force heal nonsense and join the dark side (as my apprentice)!"

I'm pretty damn sure I don't have to sign a check sheet when I get force powers, and if I can, wanna roll Chaotic Neutral with the force. People need food and help? Done.Bad guy kills millions? Cut his legs and arms off and force lift him into a ventilation shaft with a industrial giga-sized fan.

Kreia, who mostly served as a kind of mary sue author insert, did at least have a point that whenever the Force rears it's ugly head, it's extremely (and destructively) polarizing. People gain the force, have a group that knows the force, one half will go all hippie, the other half will go all jerkass, both will have a climactic battle that wipe one or both out. The writing reason is that "Hey, we need to have good guys and bad guys fighting for a story, easy *bam* done!" The story reason is that "Oh hey, as long as people will abuse power, there will be the Dark Side."

The way it's worked in story is an endless perpetual civil war that destroys civilization and results in the schizo tech and relative medieval stasis lock on technology in the universe, which is a result of bad writing and an adherence to the premise that you can't have a proper star wars story without a Jedi fighting against a Sith somewhere in there. Which is kinda like saying you can't have a DnD story without Dungeons, Dragons, Old Wizards and Ranger Elves fighting Orcs.

If I had force powers, I'd probably join the Jedi so I could learn to use them. Doesn't mean I'd stay there; I'd probably be happiest getting stationed on some relatively peaceful planet where I could just do my own thing and, y'know, tell people not to be dicks. Or just sort of drop off the Jedi radar and "retire" somewhere. I mean, what are they gonna do, come kill me for having powers but not using them to be excessively lawful good or evil? Really, my only options are "join Jedi and bail on them if I don't like it" or "join the Sith and constantly worry about getting murdered by my own teammates trying to prove how SUPER POWERUL AND DAAARRRRRRRK they are."


Ideally, I'd get a loose grasp on using my powers and then run off to have super awesome space adventures with a ragtag crew of loveable fortune-seekers. And also some hot guys.Hell, I don't need the force powers. I'll just be captain of a ship and go on space adventures with my crew of hot guys.

Not really. It's mainly telekinetics and telepathy, with some clairvoyance and empathy thrown into the mix. Mind Powers man. Force Lightning is energy kinetics as well. No magic here.

Like Han Solo said... "Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid."

And before you say "Jedi don't use blasters..." They totally do.

Well, I think we all know which side RO would join then; he'd be an Inquisitor in the 40k verse.

I'd probably be a Jedi/grey Jedi. I don't completely agree with the sith's methods. And yet sometimes even the council bothers me. But at least as a Jedi it'll be a bit more easier for me to be semi neutral.
