View Full Version : Force Powers vs. Yuuzhan Vong...?

Okay. I've been running an NJO campaign for a while now. My players have just about reached the fall of Coruscant, but we've got a ways to go yet, say, a couple of weeks. Three of them just chose to follow my lead and use Jedi characters. I've had the Masters putting them through their paces, and, along with my more-experienced Jedi Guardian, there's a big, TOUGH smuggler to back them up.

In any case, I've only recently started reading the books. I see that somebody (Who was it...can't remember...may have been Ganner Rhysode) WAS able to use telekenesis to strike a Yuuzhan Vong. First question:

If the Yuuzhan Vong are immune to the Force, how was Anakin able to strike one of them?

Second question:

Would the force strike have given the character a DSP?

Okay. Should I allow my characters to use Force Strike (If the Vong are vulnerable to it) without giving them a Dark Side Point (After all, the Vong are still living beings), or does the DSP still apply, even if, say, the offending Vong is about to cut a non-combatent in half with his/her amphistaff?

Thanks in advance!

The only use of the Force I've seen work against the Vong is when Anakin dropped a 500 kg rock on a Vong.

As for Force Strike, according to the rules, a DSP is earned for using Force Strike on any living creature. Needless to say, this has been a hot subject for debate (not about the wording of the rule, just the logic) and many house rules. A holonet search with Force Push and Force Strike as key words should home you right in on them.
