    The Force, mate :D
    Oh, and lightsabers of course.

    These are the spells I'm thinking of right now:

    [Active] Lightsaber Throw:
    The jedi throws his lightsaber in a target direction using the force. On the way it will deal damage to all units it hits.

    [Active] Force Jump:
    The jedi uses the force to jump towards a target position. Upon impact the jedi will erect a force barrier in a certain AOE around him, keeping all enemy ground units from leaving or entering the area.

    [Passive (Two modes)] Force Sustenance:
    Force Rage: In this mode his attack is slightly enhanced by the force. Additionally, while being attacked in this mode the jedi's rage is continuously fuelled and upon reaching a certain limit he will use this deep pool of rage to unleash a quick flurry of attacks with his lightsaber upon random enemies around him. This sudden burst will however also penalise him with some HP loss, and can result in death.

    Force Preservation: In this mode the jedi is generating a force field around himself that will reduce the impact of enemy attacks. Also, whenever he slays a foe he'll use the force to grab pieces from them to apply quick fixes on himself. These repairs will then be held in place by the force, however he will not be able to hold the repairs in place forever. As a consequence, these repairs will be temporary and this can potentially reach a point where he lives entirely on burrowed life.

    Note: Switching mode will nullify the "rage pool" that is generated in Force Rage as well as all burrowed life gained via Force Preservation. The latter can potentially be fatal.

    [Channelling (Ultimate)] <No name yet>:
    The jedi focuses all his powers on a targeted area, sending crushing force waves from random angles towards the core, pushing enemies inwards and dealing damage. Enemies inside will also have reduced movement speed and defence.

    Edit: Btw, I don't feel that having him throw a Destroyer on his enemies would make sense, although it could make him look sci-fi like.

    Edit again: Updated descriptions.

    Yeah, everything seems fine, but the life draining is a concept that you cannot excuse in a modern world.

    So I'm assuming some tech rig to induce, as I said, psychic abilities would be allowed?

    What if I say he'll use the force to grab pieces of slain foes to "repair" himself. These repairs will then be held in place by the force? :D

    This also gives me a slightly different idea for more balance. The jedi will not be able to hold the repairs in place forever, and thus they will only be temporary. Therefore if he is living on "burrowed" life only, then he can potentially die unless he heals himself somehow.

    Edit: Updated the passive ability above with the new ideas that you indirectly gave me Pharaoh_. MUAHAHAAA!

    Well, it's futuristic, and aliens have always been connected to our future, since we really don't know what may lie behind the next galaxy.

    Anyways, maybe I will drop in this contest, as a participant. Still thinking, thought.

    Participation contradicts with the role of the judge. Can't be done.
    @baassee, approved, if you are up to judging.
    @And yes, it can be Warcraft Science Fiction, if you think what I do :p
