[NJO] The New Jedi Order Lore Information
Below will be a list of Jedi codes, the story of NJO, examples of lore that may be used in trials, and the library. It is essential to have a basic understanding of NJO’s lore if one wishes to advance through the ranks.
The New Jedi Order was created by Luke Skywalker after the battle of Yavin. In an effort to bring the Jedi Order back to what it was - a galactic peacekeeping organization - he gathered any force sensitives he came across and had them join as the first generation of new Jedi. However, the rise of The First Order made it extremely difficult for Luke to keep it under wraps, and the betrayal of Ben Solo - or Kylo Ren - almost extinguished the spark that Luke had worked so hard to create. Now, NJO is at a time where the first generation of force sensitives to join the order are Jedi Masters, and are ready to take on the dark side head on.

THE GRAND LIBRARY:
To create a holocron and have it published in the library, you must be a Jedi Librarian. This rank is obtained by following the path of the Jedi Consular, advancing to the rank of Jedi Instructor, and then becoming a Jedi Librarian. Once you have done this, you are allowed to pick a lore subject, write at least 1 paragraph about it, send it to a Master of the Order, and have it published in the library for everyone to see. This is one of the prime responsibilities of Jedi Librarians.
