The Power of the Force

Postby Trollzyn the Infinite » Mon Sep 21, 2020 6:39 pm

The Force. The Star Wars equivalent of magic; space magic, to be precise. Capable of incredible things, allowing it's users to pull off amazing feats... it's been a driving force (no pun intended) in the Star Wars universe for tens of thousands of years or more.

Imagine one day you wake up and you find that power is at your disposal, and all the abilities that come with it. Levitation, increased speed and agility, the ability to stop a moving object or move a stationary one with your mind, reading minds, strangling people with your mind, shooting lightning from your hands, breathing somewhere without oxygen, healing your wounds, tricking the weak-minded into doing your bidding, sucking the life force from others, deafening super-sonic screams, inspiring courage or fear in your allies and enemies, consuming mass quantities of life to become immortal, shedding your mortal coil and seizing another's body as a host, etc. All these abilities and many, many more (seriously there are tons of Force powers; I don't even think I listed half of them) are at your disposal.

Obviously you're not a Mary Sue coughreycough so you'll need to train yourself to use the more advanced abilities. Eventually you will uncover every one of them... the question is, will you use this newfound power for good or evil? For personal gain or for the benefit of many, or even all? Will you crush your enemies or rally your allies to your cause? Will you simply manipulate things behind the scenes, reshape the world in whatever way you wish, or will you simply live a normal life with a little extra help? Will you live the life of a Jedi, a Sith, or something else entirely?

What would you do if you had the power of the Force at your command?

After training for years with my powers, I'd enter politics and use the Force to become a Senator to the Galactic Senate. Then stay there and forge a Political Dynasty that would rule the stars for Generations. Pretty basic but I always loved politics more then battle.

Id want to do the most good as possible with it. I have to admit though being able to use Jedi mind tricks id definitely be tempted if not likely to use on certain people and manipulate them to my will. Who they are they though I am not going to say.
