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!

Nessa'sofac Ishtak-Jin'Var Wins Ithor's Senatorial Bid!
A Blue-skinned, elderly twilek female stands below a Bafforr tree on an Ithorian Plaza. Below are a crowd of Ithorians who all are rumbling loudly in a sort of applause. She raises her hand for a few moments as the crowd dies down. She slowly begins in a measured voice, "As many of you know... I am not the public speaker I once was. So I will make this brief." She looked about the crowd, "I, Nessa'sofac Ishtak-Jin'Var humbly accept the senatorial seat for Ithor, as you all voted for." another rumble flows through the crowd before she continues, "This planet took me in in my most desprate hour... And I am honored that the good people of this world have offered me the chance to give back. I will not fail you in the Senate. Thank you." There is a final round of Ithorian rumbling before the broadcast ends

Vessa Kristi Elected as Senator of Tatooine
A young, Tan skinned Arkanian woman appears on screen standing behind a podium. She has medium length White hair with Blue streaks and wears a white medical lab coat. She smiles before looking directly at the camera and speaks in a soft voice. "Thank you, people of Tatooine for placing your faith in me to represent you in the New Republic Senate. I hope to aid in bringing long standing peace and prosperity to Tatooine, it's citizens, and the Republic. Part of my plan for doing this is to maintain an open forum with the people of Tatooine. To that end, Citizens of Tatooine may reach me either by mail or on channel 4668 with questions or concerns, and I will be happy to answer them as much as I am able. I will also use this channel to continue to provide free medical care for all citizens in need." The image fades out as a New Republic Banner appears on screen.
