Jedi Shadow Prestige Class

A Jedi Shadow was a Jedi Sentinel who had pursued a unique focus of training. Working directly under the Council of First Knowledge, Shadows were sent to destroy anything and everything connected with the Sith and their followers.

Dubbed Shadows, and mostly made up of elite Jedi Sentinels, these Jedi became what their name suggests; shadows of themselves and the Jedi Order. Working in secrecy, the First Knowledge Council would hand pick the ranks of this task force and send its members to locations strong in the dark side of the Force, in hopes of vanquishing whatever artifact or dark side practitioner that may be causing the disturbance. Often engaged in information-gathering roles, Shadows were always sure to obtain all possible data on their target before making a decisive blow against them.

Due to their missions, Jedi Shadows were often noted for being loners with a black-and-white perception of the world around them. This could manifest itself as paranoia, wherein they saw signs of the dark side in everything - including their own comrades. As such, they were often deployed cautiously and only in times after a great conflict. Shadows did not hesitate in their duty and were willing to betray those that they considered evil, but they often practiced restraint as they recognized that their definition of such foes did not always match those of the Council. Some among their rank believed that more aggressive actions were needed in order to destroy the followers of the dark side.

Improved Initiative, Lightning Stealth, Mind Trick, Stealthy, Track, Urban Tracking

Force Camouflage
At 2nd level, the Jedi Shadow learns a special technique to hide himself using the Force. He becomes a pale shadow and easily blends into his surroundings.

While Force camouflage is activated, the Jedi Shadow becomes nearly invisible to the naked eye. A character must succeed a DC 20 + Force Level Spot check to see him and can target him normally. However, any attack directed at the camouflaged Jedi Shadow has a 20% chance to miss due to concealment.

Activating Force camouflage is an attack action and costs 3 vitality points. The Jedi Shadow must expend 3 vitality points every 1 minute x Force Level. A Jedi Shadow can't maintain Force camouflage while using other Force skills or engaging in distracting activity.

Increase Lightsaber Damage
As a Jedi Shadow gains levels, the amount of damage he can deal with his lightsaber increases.

Each time the Jedi gains Increase Lightsaber Damage, the weapon’s damage increases by +1d8.

Subtle Camouflage
At 5th level, a Jedi Shadow is able to hide himself from the physical reality at the same time as masking his presence from other Force-users. A Jedi Shadow gains the ability to use Force camouflage without disrupting the Force Stealth skill. This combination also allows the Jedi Shadow to remain hidden from a Force-user using the Sense Surroundings technique.
