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!

Open the Flood Gates: Force Applications
Now that things have settled a bit, we are looking to throw Force back into the mix. The Jedi and Sith Orders have been nothing more than myth and rumor since the advent of the hyperdrive. The Sith and Jedi Masters have found that now is the time to work their machinations: For better or for worse. The eternal schism of the Jedi and Sith is not forgotten by members of these sects, and so they continue to work against and thwart each other's plans when able. What we are looking for: Jedi and Sith Master applications to spread their respective word and/or influence. What to put in your application: Goals and methods on how you plan to build up and operate your Order within the current galactic framework. We will be working with accepted applicants on the finer points of how Forcers will fit into the greater story of the timeline. [Note]: As usual, existing characters need not apply.

Quest Credit Return Tweaking
An overall guideline for quest returns has been no more than 300,000 credits an hour. Depending on the ease of the quest, it may be significantly lower. However, we have found several quests that gave well over that guideline, with some being well over the million marker. We're auditing quests as we find them to ensure their payout is on par, so do not be surprised if your hotspot quest that was netting you a million credits an hour suddenly gets reduced to something more reasonable.
