• Pommel cap
The end of a lightsaber is often graced with a cosmetic cap that can be replaced with a Utility item such as magnetic grip, secret compartment, comlink, ect ect ect.
• Power Core (Diatium power cell & Inert power insulator)
The power within extends outward destroying all it touches. Upgrading the Power Cel and Insulator mean the weilder can harness a greater destructive force; resulting in Increased Damage, however if improperly installed can a suffer greater gyroscoping effect often resulting in diminished Accuracy.
• Emitter (Focusing lens & Emitter matrix)
The sharpness of a blade is as keen as its weilders eye. Upgrading the Lens and Emitter mean the weilfer suffers a reduced gyroscoping effect allowing the blade to glide through matter with easy; resulting in Increased Accuracy, however if improperly installed can a suffer power fluctuations often resulting in diminished Damage.
• Lightsaber crystal (Colour Crystal & Core Crystal)
A quality crystal can be the difference between life and death. However throughout the galaxy rest many rare and prized artifacts, keenly waiting to give a duelist the unique edge they need to earn their fame. Changing a crystal can alter the Colour *and *Special Properties of a blade.
Designed as much for elegance in combat as for ceremony, the lightsaber, also referred to as the “laser sword” by those who were unfamiliar with it, was a distinctive weapon, the very image of which was inextricably bound with the mythos of the Jedi Order and their polar opposites, the Sith. The lightsaber also became synonymous with the Jedi Order’s values to uphold peace and justice throughout the galaxy. This perception endured, despite the many conflicts with lightsaber-wielding Sith and Dark Jedi.
The weapon consisted of a blade of pure plasma energy emitted from the hilt and suspended in a force containment field. The field contained the immense heat of the plasma, protecting the wielder, and allowed the blade to keep its shape. The hilt was almost always self-fabricated by the wielder to match his or her specific needs, preferences and style. Due to the weightlessness of plasma and the strong gyroscopic effect generated by it, lightsabers required a great deal of strength and dexterity to wield, and was extremely difficult—and dangerous—for the untrained to attempt using. However, in the hands of an expert of the Force, the lightsaber was a weapon to be greatly respected and feared. To wield a lightsaber was to demonstrate incredible skill and confidence, as well as masterful dexterity and attunement to the Force.
