Legends of the Jedi


Legends of the Jedi is a text-based roleplaying experience that immerses players in a multiplayer world where they can rewrite classic Star Wars stories with their own heroes, villains, battles, and endings. Over the course of each two-year timeline, the game explores all the key eras of the Star Wars Expanded Universe.

Take and hold planets as an Imperial Stormtrooper, command the Rebel navy and liberate the galaxy, pursue targets as a bounty hunter, or shape things on a larger scale as a member of the Galactic Senate. Maybe you’ll even be one of the few born with force sensitivity, destined to be trained by Jedi or Sith.

The game offers an extensive crafting system for engineers to supply weapons, armor, and ships to the galaxy. Develop new, cutting-edge armaments to give your side an edge, or open a shop in a bustling commercial district and become wealthy as part of a powerful engineering conglomerate.

LOTJ offers full PVP in both ground and space combat, governed by a set of rules to minimize griefing and ensure that all kills have sufficient in-character cause.

What role will you play? The legend awaits!

Why Play LOTJ?


Started in the middle of 1998, Legends of the Jedi has been an ever growing community for over 20 years. It has seen a major overhaul from the original SWR codebase that it derived from. With an ever changing set of worlds, and constantly updated features, LOTJ has a little bit of something for everyone.

A Vast Galaxy

Explore iconic planets as you travel the Galaxy of Legends of the Jedi. Dive head first into a Sarlaac pit and see if you have what it takes to survive. Visit the swamps of Dagobah while fending off one of the ferocious dragon snakes. Swing by Nal Hutta and barter with the different Hutt Houses to gain them as allies. You can even partake in the hustle-bustle lifestyle on Coruscant.

10 Unique Classes

Pick up a blaster and don a heavy suit of armor to jump into the fray as a combatant, or take control of spacecrafts the size of small cities as a pilot. Track down the galaxy's most wanted as a bounty hunter, or become the most wanted yourself as you smuggle contraband. If you'd rather be a legitimate salesman, craft every useful item in existence as an engineer.

Player Driven Economy

From Government Agencies to Public Businesses, every aspect of the economy is player controlled. As one of the crafting classes, you will take center stage in building the foundations that the economy prospers on. Items are designed, funded, and built by players. Whether it’s running a personal shop to supply people with basic necessities, or taking a hydrospanner to every ship in existence, you’ll find plenty of ways to contribute.

Three-Dimensional Space

With a real-time, three-dimensional grid, space flight is one of the most challenging aspects to learn. Not only is it the method of travel, but it’s also utilized heavily in space combat. Try your skills as a fleet admiral while you take control of up to three capital class ships each with numerous squadrons of fighters to deploy. Master the required skills and become a renown pilot for years to come.

The Story So Far


A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...



It is a period of galactic upheaval. During the battle
between the Trade Federation and the Galactic Republic, the
treacherous actions of the one-time Jedi Grandmaster Jaak Vho
sealed the Republic's fate. In the years that followed, the Trade
Federation capitalized on their control, reunifying under the banner

Led by Empress Niarem Zevon, they rule with absolute authority:
bringing worlds in to line by force, with all citizens registering
a CHAIN CODE for tracking and control. All has not been well, however.
With the new Empire's expanding reach spread thin in their first years,
a variety of scum and villainy have cropped up, terrorizing certain sectors
of the Galaxy and doing illegitimate business in others.

The once proud JEDI ORDER is scattered to the winds, with most now
relegating themselves to life in line with Imperial regulation. Some
have taken to teaching and charity, others following their former Master
to their new home - while some have simply vanished.

As further collateral damage, other organizations have also
fallen by the wayside. In the vacuum, the ALDERAAN ROYAL ENGINEERS
rise to fill the demands of the new Empire, and by extension the Galaxy.
What happens next is anybody's guess...
