Re: RPG: Age of Skywalker
"What's a sith lord?"
The entire table turns to Zoncxs. Skywalker smiles politely, "For those who've been...away...for a while, the Sith are a seperate force tradition from that of the Jedi. Millenia ago, there was a schism in the beleif system between force users. One group beleived that those who had access to the Force, should use it for the greater good of the people in this galaxy, as protectors and guardians. Another beleived that the true power of the Force lied in strength and power. It was their doctrine that weilding the force made one strong and that the Strong were to be served by the weak they conquered. There was a Great Battle, and those who wielded the Light Side of the Force won, casting the Dark Side users out to space."
Skywalker looks around, everyone is silent and has his attention, so he continues.
"The outcasts found a world that at that time, was untouched by The Old Republic, and settled there. They found a primitive race of Force users called Sith, and conquered them. The strongest among them took the title Dark Lord of the Sith, a title comparable to a Jedi Grandmaster. Millenia passed and another great war came after the arrival of the Sith Empire, again they were destroyed by the Jedi of the Old Repulic. More time passed, and the Brotherhood of Darkness was defeated by The Army of Light. The Sith were thought destroyed, but one remained...Darth Bane. It was he that created the Rule of Two, one apprentice and one master, and he that commanded they remain in hiding until the day that they could return. Then came others, and finally Darth Sidious who we knew as Emperor Palpatine, and my father, his apprentice Darth Vader."
Overlord Skywalker paused for a moment to let it all sink in...
