    Hi everyone.

    We're moving into another exciting period for Star Wars, with the release of The Last Jedi now less than three months away. With the excitement surrounding the new movie and the waning down of our Dawn of the Republic storyline, we are excited to announce that we are in the beginning stages of moving to a new timeline. That timeline, expected to launch in December, is...

    Star Wars: The First Sith turns back the clock by thousands of years and brings us into the period where the Jedi Knights are at war with the Exiles who will become known as the Lords of the Sith. We will be starting the story at the end of a century of civil war that has seen the galaxy descend into darkness and chaos. Members will be able to explore several perspectives of the story, not only from the view of the Jedi but through several factions... including exploring how the Sith rose to power, and who was responsible.

    This is the first of several announcements that will be happening over the next few months. Not only will the story be changing, but we'll also be announcing several changes to the structure and operations of the site and the role-play.

    In the meantime, we recommend that you continue working on your current stories, as we're still several months away from the new timeline. This gives plenty of time to wrap up your story and the story of Dawn of the Republic! We'll have more announcements for you soon, as more information becomes available.

    We hope you're as excited by this news as we are. Let us know if you have any questions!

    Will there be a final battle for the current timeline before the next one starts?

    First Sith. Last Jedi. I see what you did there...

    Anyway, I'm hyped. Time to start brainstorming on characters I'll probably never use once the new TL hits!

    Is this going to wipe all the current technology, characters, etc.. from the site?

    Yes. As we will be travelling back many millennia, the current tech and characters wouldn't be useable. Fear not however! As this opens up room for new stories!

    We still have 3 months, which is a good amount of time to get your feet wet and make friends before the start of the new Timeline. There is still plenty that needs to be done over the next 3 months.

    All that being said, the new timeline will be in-continuity with our current timeline, just set several thousand years earlier. So a lot of ancient lore or backstory that was referenced or created in this timeline could end up being used or explored in the new timeline, which is really exciting.

    Brah, I've only been here for a little over two months and I've gotten a buttload of threads done. I have so many plots going I've lost track... lol

    Maybe I'm just a fast poster but I feel like three months is quite a lot of time to play with your character.

    Well time to get working on some new character ideas and thinking of some fun ways to go out with glory on my current ones. I've actually always wanted to explore more of the great schism time period so I'm actually looking forward to the next timeline.

    So... it's going to be 6,000ish years before Episode 1? Does that mean that interplanetary travel would be a relatively recent development?

    No. Interplanetary travel has been around for tens of thousands of years in Star Wars.
