Synthetic Khyber Crystals
Synthetic Khyber Crystal
During the time of the Emperor’s rule, most of the known sources for Kyber crystals were either destroyed or kept under strict Imperial surveillance. In response to these draconian measures, those students of the Jedi looking to construct their own lightsaber often fell back upon the practice of growing synthetic crystals. And while they are easier to procure, the difficulties that come in properly forming a synthetic crystal often lead them to being of an inferior quality to most naturally occurring Kyber crystals.
Base Modifiers: Installing this crystal changes a lightsaber’s base damage to 5 and critical rating to 4, and the lightsaber gains the Breach 1 and Sunder weapon qualities. If the crystal is ever removed, the lightsaber loses these qualities and reverts to its previous base damage and critical rating.
