  • 2. Laws of the Land

  • Law of Conservation:
      The harming of fellow Sith, Allies, Division members, and Visitors is forbidden, unless when taking part in an honorable duel or when acting in self defense.

      Harming the protected parties may be permitted in an official event that calls for such actions (Tournaments, Practice Raids, etc)

  • Law of Impropriety:
      Flaming, Insulting, Racism, Immaturity Rude remarks directly aimed at an individual's appearance, beliefs, rank, family, or personal issues is strictly prohibited. We are to remain an open and welcoming community. INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.

  • Law of Domain:
      The Tombs of the Valley of the Dark Lords will remain inaccessible to anyone under the rank of Sith Initiate. Sith Acolytes may enter the tombs only during an official event, hosted by a Sith Overseer+

      There will be no entrance into the Dark Council chambers, unless invited in by a Dark Councilor+. Alternatively, if a hostile runs into the Council chambers, anyone above an Advanced Path rank may enter to deal with the hostile, but they must immediately exit the premises once dealt with.

  • Law of Assurance:
      Any action that directly or indirectly puts a fellow Sith in harm's way will not be taken lightly.

      There will be no aiding hostiles in any way, be it allowing entrance into the Academy or leading astray your fellow Sith who are searching for said hostile.

      Joining the Hostile team requires permission by a Darth+

  • Law of Tradition:
      All members of the Sith Order are to keep a Star Wars themed appearance at all times while inside a group map. Everyone under the rank of Sith Master are to maintain their appearance via in-game morphs. Sith Masters and up are allowed to refuse a morph; however, they must still maintain a Star Wars themed appearance.

      While in the presence of a Darth or higher, it is customary to bow. Etiquette states that you stay in a bow position until they give you the command to rise, or until they walk away.

  • Law of Sanction:

      Sith Knights and all Advanced Paths are allowed to take on a single Apprentice at any given time.

      Sith Overseers, Sith Masters, and Sith Lords are allowed to have up to two Apprentices.

      Darths and Dark Councilors may take on a maximum of three Apprentices at any given time.

      Members of the Powerbase and higher may take on as many Apprentices as they wish, within reason and for any reason.

  • Law of Mistreatment:
      Any kind of abuse of power will lead to severe punishments. This includes, but is not limited to, free ranking, abusing authority, admin abuse, etc.

      While this section of the Law is more applicable to High Ranking members of the Sith Order, this law binds us all. It is frowned upon for anyone to abuse their power, but it is especially illegal when someone of stature does so.

      Glitching is not allowed, and exploiting will result in an IMMEDIATE ban.

  • Law of Promotion: All members of the Sith Order is required to know what is expected of them to achieve their own promotion.

      Should anyone fail a training, there will be no negative side-effects. Failing a trial, however, can have some hefty drawbacks. Depending on the rank you were trialing for, you will be forced to take a period of sabbatical. Generally the higher the rank, the longer the wait time.

      When an individual passes a training, they will receive either a PM or a whisper message from the host with the following message: “You have passed my training as a on .” Once this PM is received, the one who passed the training may use it for their promotion, once they are the proper rank to use that kind of training.


  • 3. Training Guide

    Five minutes prior to starting a training session, the host will announce it in our Discord server’s event announcement channel. Once the five minutes are up, the event will begin and no late-comers will be allowed entrance into the Training.

    There are Two different kinds of training sessions; Initiations and Combat Trainings.

    Initiations are meant to orient new group members to our laws and our promotion process. As such, the following will be addressed in each Initiation:

      - Recite the Sith Code
      - Laws of the Land
      - Promotion Process

    Combat Trainings are meant to prepare new group members for the hardship of combat in the Sith Order. As such, the following will be addressed in each Combat Training:

      - Recite the Sith Code
      - 7 Forms of Lightsaber Combat
      - Lightsaber mechanics
      - Examination (Dueling followed by a quiz)

        Sith Lord: Must have been a Sith Master for at least three weeks before requesting their Lord trials. From here on, individuals being trialed require what’s known as an Approval. These are simply tokens of acknowledgement given by Darths+ which can be attained a number of ways. Just ask them how you can earn their approval and they’ll offer their own task that needs accomplishing.

          Sith Lord trials consist of the following:
          • Must be in good standing with the community
          • Prove your dueling skills and win 4/5 duels with your trialer

      • 6. Divisions of the Sith Order

        Dark Honor Guard

        The Dark Honor Guard, also known as the Imperial Guard, are a force of elite warriors who serve the Sith Emperor as his protectors and enforcers. The Dark Honor Guard is composed of entirely non-force sensitive individuals mentally bonded to the Emperor; even the Dark Council fear their prowess in combat.

        Current Leader: Markus_Arkron (Profile Link Embedded)

        Inquisitors

        Sith Inquisitors are the policing force of the Sith Orders. These brave men and women fight to uphold the Laws of the Sith. In contrast to their counterparts, the Sith Warriors, Inquisitors specialized in Force abilities as opposed to martial might, and many would devote much time to researching new skills to survive in the cutthroat Sith political environment. Few acolytes succeeded in becoming Inquisitors. However, those that did proved to be the most determined.

        Current Leader: lordofempire (Profile Link Embedded)

        Dread Masters

        The Dread Masters are six powerful Sith Lords who serve the Dark Lord as prophets, generals, and advisers. They achieve a mastery of the Force unlike any other, and together they are nigh invincible.

        Current Leader: N/A (There is no Appointed head of this division)
