Tales from the Outer Rim
Base cost: 300cr worth of parts (or cost of hilt, whichever is greater). An Average (dd) Streetwise check may be made to scavenge for parts instead of paying the above cost.
Difficulty: Average (dd) Mechanics or Knowledge (Lore) check, assuming the character has instructions of some sort (if not, increase difficulty to Daunting (dddd) or higher).
Time: Three days (72 hours) of concentration and assembly (unlike other crafting projects, this may not be interrupted).
Success: The hilt is constructed. Extra S reduce the build time by 4 hours per (to a minimum of 4 hours). In addition, when attaching the first attachment to the hilt, one mod on that attachment may be installed without making a Mechanics check (the lightsaber’s crystal counts as an attachment). This still counts towards the total number of mods installed on the attachment.
Fail: The character fails to construct the hilt (though they may attempt again). Fail with Threat means the materials are ruined in the building process and are lost.
|Spending results when constructing lightsabers
|A or Tri
||Reduce the cost of materials spent by 25cr (minimum 100cr)
Add ornamentation to the hilt (no mechanical benefit)
|AAA or Tri
||Decrease the Encumbrance of the hilt by 1 (may only be taken once)
||Increase the number of hard points on the hilt by 1
|Th or D
||Expensive: constructing the hilt consumes 25cr extra materials
Time consuming: Constructing the hilt takes 12 hours longer than expected
Junker: The hilt looks like a cylindrical collection of cobbled together scrap, or has another non mechanical design quirk.
|Th Th Th or D
||Bulky: The newly constructed hilt has its Encumbrance increased by 1 (may only be taken once).
|D||Decrease the number of hard points on the hilt by 1 (minimum of 2 hard points).
