PostSubject: Makashi (Lightsaber)   Tue Jul 18, 2017 8:09 pm

Makashi, The Way of the Ysalamiri, or The Contention Form, was the second of the seven classic forms of lightsaber combat. Developed for the purpose of lightsaber-to-lightsaber combat, to address the failings of Shii-Cho, Makashi was the most dueling-centric of the seven classical forms. Makashi allowed an initiate to defend themselves against an opponent with minimal effort, while placing a heavy focus on avoiding disarmament. Makashi was described as elegant and focused, and was based on balance and footwork to outmaneuver opponents. Fluidity, precision, and economy of motion were relied on, rather than strength. As Makashi had been designed strictly for blade-to-blade combat, it lacked an effective means of combating enemies with projectile weapons.


Stance Change: You must have this skill in order to use more than one stance. The first skill taken for lightsaber determine your primary stance and is the only stance you can use till you take stance change (you do not need to get this feat more than once). In combat you must use this skill and state what stance you are switching to before using a skill under a different another lightsaber stance. ex stance change Shii-cho.

Contentious Opportunity: The user regonizes and exploits an opening in the opponents defense. (only action on one turn then next turn gets a +10 to hit)

Makashi Riposte:
a defensive technique where the user alters the angle of the incoming attack and makes a counter attack.
