Name: Light Reaper / Light Scythe
Type: Melee Weapon
Scale: Character
Skill: Lightsaber; Light Reaper
Cost: Unavailable for sale
Availability: 4, X
Difficulty: Moderate
Damage: 5D

Description: The Light Reaper is a development of the Light Saber, and was used by a number of jedi who liked the fact that it could be used as a normal staff as well as a lightsaber, and therefore used for non-lethal combat. However the image of the weapon was also popular with Dark Jedi who liked the death implications of the Scythe * to strike terror into their victims hearts. Although a Scythe is slightly harder to handle than a light saber, this is offset by the reduced chance of striking yourself with the blade, and a much increased reach with the blade.

* - Yes I know the Scythe is only related to death in reality, and the image of the Grim Reaper with a Scythe is not a Star Wars one, but just try mentioning to a player about a Jedi dressed in dark robes carrying a scythe and see what they think.
