Welcome to LotJ!

Legends of the Jedi is a text-based MMO (aka a MUD) that focuses on a blend of competitive gameplay and storytelling. Players fill all the important roles – the heroes and villains, smugglers and bounty hunters.

The Story So Far…

 

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

ERA III

The galaxy is preparing for the five year anniversary of the Imperial superweapon Legion being destroyed, with memorials and parades dedicated to the billions of lives lost on Dac and Nal Hutta, as well as the party that sacrificed themselves, saving billions more lives and becoming the first heroes of the New Republic. A ceremony is planned for a few days’ time to unveil a monument to the fallen on liberated Coruscant.

The New Republic exists in a fragile state. The well-intentioned Senate has struggled to unite the galaxy without the charismatic Queen of Naboo or Jedi Council to rally their cause. The decimated Jedi have become nomadic, but still revered when they reveal themselves. Naboo, war-torn and weary, accepted refugees from the two destroyed planets before closing its borders to travelers.

Disgusted with how they were treated by the Alliance in the war, Wroona has taken a hardline stance and refused to participate in the Senate. Instead, the planet is controlled by the Corporate Sector Authority, a fierce group of traders who care little of social concerns. Con men, smugglers, and crime syndicates have flourished in the power vacuum left after the Empire’s collapse.

What role will you play? The legend awaits!

Death Watch Promises Mandalorian "Peace"
As the people of Mandalore attempt to recover from the devastating blows dealt to them by an unknown threat, a note was found tacked to the stature of Mandalore the First. The note read as follows: Years of misguided outsider influence have left Mandalorians suckling at the teat of foreigners who have no respect for the Mandalorian way. Be it the Republic, Sith or even the automatons of the Morgukai, Mandalorians were deprived of their true nature...their true purpose. That, my friends, has come to a swift end. From now on, Mandalore will be ruled by the Death Watch. We will return Mandalorian culture to it's true nature and will swiftly put down any and all who stand in our way. We will bring this galaxy Mandalorian "peace".

Oyu'baat Massacre
Following the savage attacks on Concordia, a meeting was called between the leaders of all the Mandalorian factions to investigate the incident. The meeting, which took place at Oyu'baat, was nearing it's conclusion when the loud sound automatic gunfire was heard from the second floor. Patrons on the lower level rushed to the second floor meeting rooms where they discovered the bloodied corpses of the faction leaders along with members of their entourage. No evidence or discernible traces could be found on the scene other than the use of high-grade military weaponry. With the death of the faction heads, a vacuum of power has been created in the Mandalore System leaving many of the residents wondering what will happen next...

The Battle of Mandalore
This Sunday an event that will determine the fate of Mandalore will take place at 1PM PST (4PM EST). Given the nature of Mandalorian culture, this event will be LIVE FIRE meaning that actual death is a possibility. Let me repeat that: Permadeath is a possibility in this event. There will be an active tracker of certain in game turn-in objects that will be factored into the final result of the event. Rewards will be given out based on participation.

New players, accounts, the website, and email
A quirk of our website CMS is that an email address needs to be associated before an account can log in. This is a recurring point of confusion for new players. To smooth things along, new players making an account will receive a message about needing to associate in order to log in. We've also updated a line here and there to explain this.
