Lightsaber Combat

Lightsabers are made available to Force using members, whether or not they are aligned to the dark side or the light. As with any weapon, Non-Force Users are able to wield the fabled weapon in combat. NFU's that choose to wield a Lightsaber in combat are restricted to their skill with Melee Weapon Skills. Having no knowledge of Forms, or access to the Force, their skills are limited to standard strikes and exchanges with relative proficiency. Any NFU trained proficiently in Melee combat would be more than a match, with the same applying to a Force User versed in one of the varying Lightsaber Forms.
