    The Lightside of the Force, known as Ashla is pathway to peace and serenity. The Jedi Order has been the most ardent guardian of the Light, however, there are others like the Altisian Jedi who made reforms on marriage, multiple apprenticeships, and were more open minded. There are the Mutakai, Jensaarai, The Guardians of Breath, and other Lightside orders.

    All Lightsiders are welcome here in the enclave. I myself am a Altisian Jedi (see further below).

    Here are some of the Lightside Codes:

    EA4880BE-6028-439E-BDE6-A1B8B380992D.jpeg

    “There is no emotion, there is peace.
    There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
    There is no passion, there is serenity.
    There is no chaos, there is harmony.
    There is no death, there is the Force.”
    -Jedi Code

    —————-

    “Emotion, yet peace.
    Ignorance, yet knowledge.
    Passion, yet serenity.
    Chaos, yet harmony.
    Death, yet the Force.”
    -Depa Billaba

    Choose either code as your credo as a Lightsider or add one that is the offical tenets of your Lightside Order.


    As promised, I will explain my Altisian Jedi heritage:

    CA36D688-74E9-4857-AF64-77B68C5B06BB.jpeg


    The Altisian Jedi were a reform movement started by Jedi Master Djinn Altis. This order differed from the Jedi Order in four major ways:

    1. Altisian Jedi allowed marriage and believed bonds strengthened a connection to the Force oppose to the Monastic approach of the Jedi Order.
    2. The Altisian allowed a Jedi Master to have multiple Apprentices oppose to the one Master and One Padawan approach of the Jedi Order.
    3. The Altisian went underground at Order 606, and actually protected their Jedi rivals during the Dark Times.
    4. Altisian Jedi encouraged questions and questioning, “I teach being good, doing good, and asking good questions. That's about it, really.” (Djinn Altis, Wookieepedia)
    The Altisian Order reformed the Jedi Way. They remained loyal to Ashla, The Lightside, but contended with the Jedi on their ascetic and monastic values, and their interpretation of the Jedi Code.

    The Altisian Jedi have three ranks:

    Jedi Master
    Jedi Knight
    Jedi Padawan

    Jedi who likely would have been Altisian would have been:

    Anakin Skywalker, he would have been free to be married to Padme.

    Qui-Gon Jinn, he was alresdy unorthodox and disagreed with the Jedi Council often.

    Dooku, who would have loved the arcane arts of Altisians

    Luke Skywalker (Legends), especially married to Mara Jade.

    Revan, Savior of the Galaxy, whose bond with Bastila Shan drew him back to Light. Revan married Bastila Shan.

    Jedi Historia:

    7D2FC6D2-5B32-4949-B03A-AB3D6CD602CF.jpeg

    The Jedi and Sith are sects that schismed from the older Order known as the Jed’aii who believed in Bendu or Balance of Light and Dark. The Jed’aii used both Light and Dark Sides, and would exile any Jed’aii who sought to devote themselves to the Light or Dark to the moons of Ashla and Bogan. Jedi were sent to Bogan to learn darkness, and Sith to Ashla to learn Light. Evetuslly the Great Schism took place and the Jedi and Sith fled the Jed’aii Way and became more prominate by siding with political entities like the Republic and Empire.

    During the Old Republic Era Jedi broke into three classes:

    Jedi Guardian:

    B3F177EC-A31A-4A26-B73A-CE354FD90035.jpeg

    Fights the Darkside on the frontlines, protects the Republic and masters Lightsaber combat. Guardians are the more militant wing of the Jedi. The Clone Wars saw many Jedi becoming Guardians.
    Famous Guardians: Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Ahsoka Tano.
    Lightsaber Color: Blue

    Jedi Sentinel:

    85A627E6-642E-4D17-87DF-9BFF248A2A0F.jpeg

    unique class that learns skills outside the Order like splicing, computers, ships, pickihe locks, and etc. sentinels balance lightsaber training snd Force alter abilities. A unique sub class is Jedi Shadow which infiltrates the Sith and destroys it within.
    Famous Sentinels: Bastila Shan and Ulic Qel-Droma
    Lightsaber Color: Yellow

    Jedi Consular:

    AE937511-98D1-4BE4-A6E2-1107E5D0D04B.jpeg

    The Consular masters the deep mysteries of the Force and prefers to mediate, use diplomacy, and seek the Will of Ashla in all situations. Consulars master Force alter abilities (powers) and are able to use the more difficult powers such as Electric Judgement.
    Famous Consulars: Yoda, Qui-Gon Jinn, and Luke Skywalker.
    Lightsaber Color: Green

    The Grey Jedi

    Thoss who are Grey Jedi in the fashion of Jolee Bendu who aided Revan against the Sith are welcome here. However, this is not a Bendu/Balance Enclave where Light Side and Dark Side are equally practiced. So no Force Lightning! :p Although Electric Judgement is encouraged. ;)

    Here is an essay I wrote:

    The Legacy of Jedi During The Mandalorian Wars

    198BD7E6-FFF6-4E3C-BB92-BFD094751BE9.png


    Era: Old Republic

    Date: Circa 3961 BBY


    The Mandolorian Wars, the last part of a longer conflict called the Mandalorian-Jedi War, was a time the Jedi Order was divided. The High Council sought neutrality, not wanting to plunge into another war so soon after the Great Hyperspace War. Jedi Knights of the likes of Revan and Malak became incensed by inaction as the Mandos under their newly christened leader, Mand’alor began to invade more and more systems, causing great suffering to innocent sentients. Against the will of the Jedi Council, Revan and Malak with a handful of Jedi Knights waged a campaign against the Mandalorians. This resistance faction, called the Revanchists or Jedi Crusaders, took orders from one leader, Revan, who upon vowing to defeat the Mandos and wipe their scourge from the galaxy, dawned the mask of a female Mandalorian on the planet Cathar. The Revanchists had a schism, known as the Mandalorian Knights, Jedi who were disaffected and distrusted what they called the “corrupt Republic.” Contrary to the Revanchists who sought to route the Mandos, and aid the Republic troops, the Mandalorian Knights joined the Mandos, seeking to create a hybrid Jedi-Mando Order under the leadership of Dorjander Kace. Kace believed the Mandos were pure because “they believed in something,” unlike the Republic and “its decadent dry rotted core words.”


    The splintering of the Jedi during these wars is a lesson in the power of passion, “there is no passion, there is serenity.” In both fringe cults, Revanchists and Mando Knights, there was a cult of personality. The Revanchists followed Revan, who promised a galaxy free of Mandalorian brutality, while the Mandolorian Knights served Dorjander Kace, who believed in the Mandalorian Way, and that its honor or Ijaat could create a new era for a galaxy that had trusted in the eroding Republic. Both leaders on opposite sides, Revan and Dorjander were passionate; fueled by their mutual hatreds of what they each represented; they seeking a utopia based in their saber strokes. While Revan wore the Mando Mask in his pledge to annihilate the Mandalorian threat, Kace wore his Mando mask in hopes a new dynasty would dawn when Mandalorian honor (Ijaat) would reign across the galaxy. In the end, Revan and Kace were consumed. Revan was seduced in his search of the outer rim planets by the Sith Emperor, who secretly had placed Mand’alor in power to incite war, much as Palpatine would do later via the Clone Wars. Kace trying to infiltrate a Jedi Enclave was discovered by Jedi Padawan Zayne Carrick, he was taken to trial, and the Mando Knights were disbanded. Revan’s story ended more brightly, after an encounter with Jedi Sentinel Bastila Shan, the Sith Lord Darth Revan was apprehended, and his memory wiped by the Jedi Council on Dantooine. The newly revived Revan learned the ways of the Jedi once more, led his crew to destroy the Stareforge, a facility that could create endless ships and warriors at ease. There Revan confronted his old apprentice and former Revanchist Darth Malak, becoming Jedi Prodigal and “Saviour of the galaxy.”


    The lesson of the Mandalorian Wars is that passion is a path to perdition. Revan and Kace believed they knew better than the Jedi Council and stepping out from their oversight and authority. They waged war and developed their own ideologies that in the end were a product of the machinations of the Sith Emperor. The Dark Side lured Revan and Kace into rebellion against the Jedi Order, and into a war fabricated by the Dark Lord of the Sith. The Revanchists and Mandalorian Knights were seduced by Bogan via passion to stray from the Jedi Path and become warmongers rather than peacekeepers. The Mandalorian Knights fell at first more deeply, utilizing sabotage and terrorism against the Republic, but the Revanchists surpassed insolence when they followed Revan to the Sith Emperor and became acolytes of darkness, enemies of the Jedi in spirit as well as in flesh. Both Revan and Kace believed they were doing right, that their “intentions were for the best,” they saw themselves as reformers and pioneers, but their follies nearly destroyed them. For “the best intentions pave the way to hell,” and indeed hell was unleashed on the Republic and the Jedi Order via the terrorism of the Mando Knights and the Sith Armada under Darth Revan and Darth Malak.


    The take away from this divided time in our Order’s history is the lesson that we must trust the will of the Jedi Council. We may want to reform and change aspects of the Jedi Path, but there is a reason the Jedi Order has survived tens of thousands of generations. That reason is serenity, or surrender to the Will of the Force and the wisdom of the Elders on the Jedi Council. If we learn one thing from Revan and Kace’s stories, it is passion and thinking we, the individual, knows best, leads to unspeakable betrayal and evil that lurks in the galaxy. In the end, the Jedi Council that refused to join in the Mando Wars was right, it had all been a ruse of the Sith Emperor, something undoubtedly the Council Members sensed, but Revan and Kace did not.


    We must not be baited by Bogan into war, nor be led by passion, “A Jedi does not seek out battles, but neither does she turn her back on battle, when it finds her.” (Thon, Old Republic). For the near ruination of the Jedi has stemmed from Jedi Knights who did not curb their passions. Revan and Kace allowed themselves to be duped by the Dark Side into open rebellion to the Republic and Jedi Order, and Anakin Skywalker led by his passions would join their betrayal and become the enforcer of Order 606, The Jedi Purge. For passion is the path of the Sith, “through passion, I gain strength,” (Sith Code) but the Jedi Way is to surrender of our passions, “there is no passion, there is serenity.” (Jedi Code). Let us learn a hard lesson from this period of conflict.

    Next Question to you and any that wish to answer:

    Where are at least three Jedi Temples or Enclaves?
    [Naming the planets or the actual name of the temples counts.]

    Next question.

    The Force is full of alter abilities, which is the hardest to master?

    89332B7F-CAA7-445D-8E97-961F5D2D2048.jpeg


    a) Electric Judgement (Jedi Force Lightning)
    b) Battle Meditation (was a Force ability that considerably boosted the morale, stamina, and overall battle prowess of an individual's allies while simultaneously reducing the opposition's combat-effectiveness by eroding their will to fight)
    c) Doppleganger (Making Force duplicates of yourself or an object)
    d) Force Severance (Cutting a Force User off from the Force via a wall of Light permenately or temporarily)
    e) Force Heal Advanced (Ability to heal a large group with the Living Force)

    Nice reply.

    For the alter abilities the hardest is Force Severance, to cut oneself off from the Force or cut another Force User off from the Force.

    I wonder if it isn't even harder to connect back to the force (and still be powerful enough to project yourself on the other side of the galaxy (although if size matters not, distance shouldn't either as it is the same concept)) after you cut yourself off.

    Is everyone prepared for some of these legends to be changed by new canon?
