Niman, the Way of the Rancor, the Moderation Form, and the diplomat's form. . Niman balanced out between the various specializations of the other forms, covering many of the basic moves, but focusing on overall moderation. This resulted in a fighting style that lacked a significant advantage, but also lacking any serious drawbacks, and thereby not leaving adherents as exposed as some of the more aggressive or specialized forms. It has a relaxed focus on bladework, designed as a simple, easily mastered fighting form for Jedi who preferred to devote most of their time to study and diplomacy. Despite this, it could be absolutely deadly in the hands of a skilled practitioner, as demonstrated by such notables as Exar Kun. To compensate for the relaxed focus on bladework and lack of significant specialization, Niman training regimens encouraged the inclusion of Force-based attacks in combat, such as telekinetic pulls and shoves used in sync with lightsaber strikes. Ultimately, Niman's success in combat was dependent on a practitioner's intuition and creativity in combat, rather than the rote responses common to the other forms


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.

Draw Closer: the user seizes an opponent with the force pulling the target into the path of their blade. (cost no FP, small pull NOT from a far)

Pushing slash: The user slashes the opponent before force pushing them away (user still spends fp, see force push)
