It is very important to browse the Factions and Organizations forums to learn about your options. The main factions your character can join are: Jedi Order, Sith Order, Five Syndicates, Mandalorians, Galactic Senate, . There are many other PC and NPC factions as well. However, characters do not have to be part of a faction.

  1. You must make a sub account for your character. Every character needs a sub account in order to level and rank up. To learn how to create character sub accounts go here or look in the Rules & Guidelines forum.
  2. Profiles must include if a character is Force Sensitive (FS) or not.
  3. Characters are not Gods; they cannot be immortal, invincible or perfect. Mary Sues and/or Gary Stus are prohibited.
  4. Player characters (PCs) cannot be related to canon characters.
    • Last names of major Star Wars canon characters (Skywalker, Palpatine .etc) are not allowed without admin approval. Canon clan or noble houses names such as Clan Vizsla, Clan Wren, House Organa .etc are fine however.
  5. New Characters in a Main Faction begin at the basic rank (Warrior for Mandalorians, Knight for Jedi, Marauder for Sith .etc). Writers may also chose to either play as a Jedi Padawan or Sith Acolyte, this is not required for New Jedi or Sith. Please see their faction sub-forums for a detailed listing and description of their ranks.
  6. If a character dies it's assets may not be transferred to another character without approval from a moderator or admin.
  7. Characters may only start with a small amount of gear and assets.
  8. Tech such as ships, blasters, droids,, or other things need to be linked to approved tech write-ups in the tech boards. Armor will need a tech profile as well. generic melee weapons such as vibroblades or lightsabers don't need a write-up. If you are unsure if something needs a write-up or not, feel free to ask a staff member.

You can find character templates in the Basic & Advanced Character Templates thread. You can also use other members’ templates by clicking "quote" on their post and copying their template.

We have an Approved Species List you can browse through, which also has a disallowed list. While the list is not comprehensive, it is fairly extensive.
  • Any user-created species will have to be submitted in the Species forum and be approved before it can be used in the roleplay.
  • If there is a species you would like to use and it's not on the list, contact an administrator.

Q: Can I play a droid character?
A: You can, but the droid model for the character needs to be Approved in the Tech boards and any devitations in the droid's character profile need to be approved by the Tech team.

Q: May I post a character that’s a work-in-progress?
A: No, the Character Profile section is only for finished characters. You can however post WIPs in the player workshop section and work on it there. When finished, copy the code and post in in this section.

Q: Do I post my character with my subaccount?
A: No. The subaccounts are only for in-character posting in the story sections only.

Q: Can force-users use both the light and dark sides of the force?
A: Use of the dark side inflicts corruption upon the user, making using both sides of the force impossible.

Q: Do we have a list of allowed force powers?
A: Yes, click here for a list of approved user-submitted as well as stock force powers.

Q: Can i use *insert tech piece here* from fandom/wookiepedia?
A: Generic melee weapons (regular swords, vibroblades) do not require a write-up. However, other tech needs to be from the tech boards. Just because it's on wookiepedia doesn't mean it can be used on the site. Also take this moment to read the tech rules.
