In a Galaxy far far away,
there came to be...
WAYS OF THE FORCE
As taken from The Completely Unofficial Star Wars Encyclopedia The Force
is "...an energy that occurs naturally in the galaxy, it springs from all forms of
life. It has two "sides," a good side and a Dark Side, although this is a great
oversimplification of the Force’s existence. It has many sides, including a living
element and a unifying element, and it binds all things together in a great web of
existence. The Jedi Knights discovered that the Force was accessible to all living
beings through the presence of midi-chlorians in their cells. The more midi-chlorians
that inhabited a being’s cells, the more the being was able to contact the Force.
However, a high concentration of midi-chlorians did not guarantee a being control
of the Force. Only through intense study and dedicated training could a being become
proficient in harnessing the power of The Force. The Jedi Council discovered that
younger beings had an easier time of learning the techniques required to touch and
control the Force, and eventually developed a system that actively sought out and
identified beings with high midi-chlorian counts at their birth."
The Force Users on Star Wars: Ways of the Force MUSH are expected to be
responsible and mature players with a desire to help create Role-Play and
further the MUSH’s storyline. They are also expected to be helpful to
newer players and respectful of the administration and policies of the
MUSH. They are Alt characters that need to be applied for and only ONE
Force Sensitive character is allowed per player.
Before applying for a Jedi or Sith Force Using character, a player must
have actively role-played a 'normal' character for at least ONE MONTH _and_
must have at least 200 Experience Points(XP), prior to submitting an
application. A Force Using character must be approved through Admin by
submitting a Force Application to the Approval Department (See NEWS FORCE
APP for more info). It will then be reviewed and either rejected or
approved to go onto the next step, which is the RP test. Only those who
pass the RP test can have Force Using characters.
NOTE: Because a Neutral (or Wild) Force User is given less structure and
more freedom than a Jedi or Sith Force user, the requirements to be approved
are more strict. Before applying for a Neutral Force using character, a player
must have actively role-played a 'normal' character for at least THREE
MONTHS and must have at least 700 total Experience Points, prior to
submitting an application. They will also need to pass an RP test if the
application is accepted.
When a player has been approved to create a Force Sensitive character,
Admin will create a new character, which will be set Force Approved. The
player takes their Force character through Character Creation just as they
did with their normal characters. This time however, they will have access
to Force Skills and Abilities that were previously unavailable. They will
be limited to a maximum of 4 force skills and the remaining 6 will be normal
skills. Force Users will select their 'profession' or Force class at 7th
The Force skills are developed much like the normal skills with ranks that
go up as a player applies experience points (XP's) to them. As a character
increases in levels, they must go to the Development Center in the OOC area
to gain new or improve existing skills. Applicants and current Force Users
should make use of the +JHELP, +SHELP and +WFHELP files to learn more about
our Force ‘cultures’ on this MUSH.
Conversions happen on very rare occasions and therefore will be tightly
restricted from occurring. Force players who have an extremely good IC
reason to be 'converted' to the other side MUST send in a outlined detailed
TP for the 'conversion' and it MUST be approved by Admin BEFORE it takes
place. A player may submit such a TP application ONLY IF there is an
announcement that a slot is opened for another Force User.
