Yep, very true. Imo, I don't think Alter Environment requires a great deal of strength in The Force, just control and some knowledge of the physical and the natural.

A powerful ability indeed... did the Sith ever practice this technique? (the violent storms on Dromund Kaas for example)

And I look forward to your in-depths on Force cults. I hope the Nightsisters will feature, andThe Jedi Path tells me the Black Knights might be interesting - unless of course that's all there is on them...

I would say so. Like I said, it doesn't require a great deal of power, only control and knowledge of the physical and natural worlds, so for the Sith to use it wouldn't be a stretch. However, many of Alter Environment's uses are mainly pacification. It can be used to kill, but I think Sith prefer the more 'direct' approach.

Yep. Basically any group of Force-users not apart of the Jedi or Sith will be featured, so Nightsisters are in. Gonna have to do some research on the Black Knights before doing a thread on them. Hopefully the Black Knight from the Monty Python movie (forget which one) isn't a member

Ha, ha! Don't get ahead of yourself though, still got galactic history to do!

Just a thought, lightsaber types - curved, pikes, double- bladed. Don't know if it's your area of expertise, but just a thought.

Right, yeah. And the lightsaber types are a good idea as well. Lightstaffs, Lightwhips, all of those non-standard Lightsabers are pretty cool.
