"The Force must be used for knowledge and defense; never
for attack! Once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny! Consume you, it will!" Master Yoda, The Empire Strikes Back.
Hey friends, I was just thinking about at some point trying a "good side of the Force" challenge as inspired by Star Wars.
The basic premise of the challenge would be that most evocation and necromancy arcane magic would be completely off limits for the entire trilogy. The dark side, are they. (Spells like Web would be okay. But no Magic Missiles, Fireballs, Skull Traps, Lightning Bolts, Abi-Dalzim's Horrid Wiltings, or other such arcane horrors.)
My first question would be, has it ever been done as at least a minimal reload? My second question would be, do you think it is possible, or what problems do you foresee?
I realize that this idea doesn't quite mesh perfectly with the Forgotten Realms world - for example, it would make both Dynaheir and possibly Aerie into Sith-in-the-making, while Xan would be the perfect Jedi trainee. But, I think a lot of the NPC's would fit very nicely into the goodside/darkside ethos. Ajantis, Anomen, Keldorn, Mazzy, and Valygar come immediately to mind.
What do y'all think?
