Galaxy at War
Little is known about Vexxtal Crystals except that they are highly sought after by Dark Siders and adherents to the Sith tradition. If the wielder of a lightsaber with a Vexxtal crystal hits an opponent for an amount of damage that equals or exceeds the target’s Damage Threshold then the wielder of the lightsaber can make a Persuasion check as a free action against the target’s Will Defense. If the Persuasion check is successful then the target must either earn a Dark Side Point or move -1 step along the Condition Track if it spends a Force Point before the wielder’s next turn. If a the wielder of a lightsaber with a Vexxtal crystal also has the Sith Lord’s Temptation ability, then the wielder gains a +5 bonus to the Persuasion check made to lure the target to the Dark Side.
