Laugh at first and be deeply scared afterwards. Like in Burnt Offerings...

ROFLMAO!!! ... AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!


The question now would be could a lich goblin be of good alignment? We are still talking about Yoda, after all.

Yoda to the dark side went. Palpatine defeated wanted he, but not for goodness. Planet dagobah full of terrors controll he wanted.

Qadira

in protoindoeuropean yoda has other options:

YODA
IODA
GODA
JODA

i is a pronominal stem
o means 'to announce/ to hold as true'
-da means 'to divide'

i-o-da

YODA could mean: 'to declare intention to cut in half (with a light saber)'


Very nice info! Thanks for that tidbit.

So... You're saying Yoda hates horses?

That depends... is Yoda afraid of horses?

Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering. ~ yoda


The Advanced Races Book does say goblins live to be 60 years old. They are also nocturnal, so the way they rate age could be based on the lunar calender. They could easily consider themselves to be a minimum of 10 times the solar age (if you follow what I mean). The same could be said for Yoda...nobody really knows. He could have given his age from his planet (if his home world orbits 10 times faster than our own) or from the lunar cycle.


I love this......absolutely love it.

In answer to the earlier question about if Yoda could be a lich and still be good, remember that the Jedi had codes against things most consider "positive" as much as "negative".

Fear, yes, but also love, for an example.

So you could get away with neutral there.

The Bestiary lists the alignment in the Lich template as "any evil", though the description of the lich itself doesn't necessarily preclude neutral alignments. A neutral character could very well practice necromancy without becoming evil. If the focus in necromancy were something like becoming a lich to, say, safeguard an ancient order?

Besides, if necromancy were inherently evil, any spell in the book with the [Necromancy] school would risk warping the user's alignment, and I haven't seen a ruling on that yet.

So we could probably get away with a Lawful Neutral lich. Far more horrible things have been done in the name of "the greater good" than turning oneself into an undead wizard of unsurpassed power.

So....off to build a LN Goblin Lich. But how many levels, and of what?

Wizard, obviously. Someone mentioned psionicist (a good fit for getting "Force" powers). A dash of fighter for some bonus feats. Thoughts?

At 900 years, he'd have plenty of time to break well beyond 20th level.


Sounds good!

Whatever the Psionic version of a Magus is... that's what I would go with lol. With a Brilliant Energy Longsword... well probably short sword for Yoda.


Convert the psychic warrior from 3rd, perhaps....interesting.....


Someone already has...Dreamscarred press did.

Required, lichdom is not. Afraid of horses, Yoda is not. Insulted, Yoda is at being called a mite.

Ten levels in the psion class and ten levels in the quinggong monk class, Yoda has. Mythic rules, Yoda also uses.


I think the fact that Yoda died of old age precludes him from being a lich, wouldn't you say?


Not necessarily. It could be that his phylactery had been broken long before and he just physically broke down over the centuries....anything is possible.

Or maybe it's spanish for "effin' around" or "party"


I think I will make a 4 pack of Goblin liches (seeing as how they are small enough, maybe I can get a discount for multiple puchases). One good, one Neutral, One evil and one Chaotic Neutral. The others would be Lawful. Different colored robes and 'special' swords from Numeria.
The party could be told to go to one of them for training and/or a mission....hmmmm.

Which may even be a good idea. Certainly there are a number of things that have been defined and codified over the years I'd have rather seen left vague.

Are you talking about that Midichlorian disaster? That would better have been left undefined indeed.

Yoda as a 900-year-old goblin is a nice idea indeed. What class (in PF, not Star Wars d20) would he be? Some kind of monk?

You know that was the single worst thing he ever did. Thankfully Kotor never mentioned it.

I am still trying to drink that knowledge away...


We can all just agree that the 'other' 3 Star Wars movies never really happened in our Star Wars world. It just happened to be an alternate universe with some similar characters.
It's kinda what I have to do with the new Star Trek movies...Still, back on topic.

I would welcome these goblin liches into my fold. They don't take up much space and require very little in return for their services.


When I picture Jedi/Sith I picture Psionics. A lot of the Force Powers can be replicated through Psionics as well. One of the things that occurs to me, is you can see Yoda and Palpatine 'novaing' in the prequels, while Anakin and Obi-Wan are more warriors. I envision Yoda and Palpatine as Psions with Anakin and Obi-Wan as Psychic Warriors. Toss in a Psionic equivalent of the spell Age Resistance, and I think it'd be very easy to build either character with Psionics.


Agreed Tels.


Interesting... You know, all the talk of horses just makes me think about how Yoda rode luke like a horse and called it 'training'. Did yoda have to make a ride check?

As for class, i'm convinced he had some levels in oracle.. (sensing the force and such)

Maybe we snould make a list of his spells/abilities to narrow it down? Levitate comes to mind...

Going with this age factor then Goblins really do fit the bill for Yoda!


I might suggest that he's a Flowing Monk

I agree. He was an epic-level living character, continually taking the Extended Lifespan feat. Unfortunately, after the Fall of the Republic, he stopped gaining XP while going into retirement. He never got to buy the feat again, and apparently training Luke didn't give him enough XP to buy another feat :)


I will wade in and go with the mite option (presented by Charlie Bell)with a twist,

-firstly no age stated for mites
-They have an affinity to vermin with an empathic link (midi-chlorians appear to be a parasite, similar to vermin ?)
-The average stats show an increased wisdom.
-There is the correct amount of digits on hands and feet
-The size and dimensions of individual body parts seems right.
-The head features ears eyes mouth nose and proportions are very similar to Yoda Link for comparison

And here is the twist
- They are the psionic version of mites
- Blues are psionic goblins and have heightened intelligence and a change in skin colour green to blue. So Yoda's race similarly has a change in skin colour this time blue to green and a similar heightened intelligence.

This is my humble submission.


I wonder if we might see one in Star Wars: Episode VII?

Silver Crusade

Yoda has tridyctal hands. That might give trouble to the goblin theory... unless he's a gobling born aasimar


+1 for a green psionic mite. Now do we call them greens or psites? As fey they should be quite long-lived.
