Competition: Reflections of Lessons Past

Reflections of Lessons Past


The legendary training facility of the Dark Jedi Brotherhood, their philosophy and the first incarnation of their domineering Empire - The Shadow Academy has been the center of all Brotherhood activities for years. Countless initiates have been drawn to the Brotherhood facility for generation upon generation since its establishment, seeking the powers of the old Sith Lords.

With the terrible devastation wrought upon Antei and the Grand Masters purges of the undesirables upon the Academy grounds, the Shadow Academy has moved its operations to the great VSD II - Paladin, the flagship of the Headmaster and the new grounds for the Academy in the interim.

Have you ever wondered how your character developed their skills and abilities? Where did they learn to wield a lightsaber with such proficiency? How did they come upon that ancient Force technique that gives them such a razor sharp edge in combat? What about those deadly fighting forms and dazzling displays of athletics? What did they have to go through in order to reach the epitome of the physical and mental arts? Who taught them to shoot so well? This is your chance to tell that story!!!


During the course of each single competition, one skill and one Force Power will be singled out and you will tell the story of that ability. Where did you learn it? Who trained you? Was it in an organized class or did you learn it via the hard university that is life itself?

Write a story showcasing your character either learning or training in one of the two chosen Skills / Force Powers. You may even combine the two into one epic story! And what if your character never learned that skill or Force Power at all? Why not? How do they combat it, and have they ever had it used against them? Have they needed or had an ally with that (Skill/FP)? Write about one of their experiences with it.

Each Competition will break down as follows:

  • 1st place: 10 points
  • 2nd place: 9 points
  • 3rd place: 8 points
  • 4th place: 7 points
  • 5th place: 6 points
  • 6th place: 5 points
  • 7th place: 4 points
  • 8th place: 3 points
  • 9th place: 2 points

Anyone below that gets 1 point, so every submission counts!

At the end of the competition the individual with the most points accumulated will be declared the winner of the competition.
