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.
Over 100 Playable Races
With over 100 unique races and each one having their own defining levels specific to every class, players have thousands of character design options available to them. Each race offers a potential for new and refreshing roleplay experiences. Don’t see one that interests you? We also have an application process for requesting new races that only you have access to.
Master the Force
Every character has a chance to become a forcer upon creation. This opens the door to interesting new roleplay interactions with common folk and other forcers alike. Become someone's apprentice, learn all that you can, make a saber, pass your knighthood trials, take on an apprentice of your own, and drive the story!
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.
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 has been 20 years since the end of the Galactic Civil War, which
ended in a weary peace between the Rebel Alliance and the Galactic
Empire. Over time, lines between the two blurred and the galaxy was
briefly united within the NEW REPUBLIC. However, it proved impossible
to maintain unity for long. One by one, planets took charge of their
own affairs, rendering the Senate mostly ceremonial. In the vacuum,
new groups have emerged in every corner of the galaxy
As his Empire faded, Lord Emperor Wren stole away to Korriban with
those still loyal to his cause, claiming the planet for their new
SITH ASCENDENCY. The Jedi, led by Master Tonaw Erdon, established the
JEDI PROTECTORATE to protect Mon Cala and Ithor from increasing crime
and disarray. The RIM SYSTEMS COALITION, founded by the influential
Teton family, found a seat at the table as well. Emphasizing economic
prosperity and personal freedom, it represents Naboo and Ryloth.
As the political landscape changed, so too did the economy. Without
oversight, supply chains across the Galaxy fell into disarray. On
Nal Hutta, the old families regained control of commerce, one forming
HUTTA HEAVY INDUSTRIES to consolidate control over valuable markets in
the Outer Rim. In the Core, GALACTIC SOLUTIONS INDUSTRIES came into the
hands of new leadership who quickly revived it with an emphasis on
manufacturing and biodiversity research.
With power changing hands and tensions rising, it is impossible to
predict how long the peace will last...
