Young Jedi of the Old Republic
The Jedi Code (circa 4000 BBY, the time frame for this campaign)
The Primary Code
Emotion, yet peace.
Ignorance, yet knowledge.
Passion, yet serenity.
Chaos, yet harmony.
Death, yet the Force.
This was changed to the more widely recognized version, “There is no emotion, there is only Peace…” years later.
Jedi are the guardians of peace in the galaxy.
Jedi use their powers to defend and protect, never to attack others.
Jedi respect all life, in any form.
Jedi serve others, rather than rule over them, for the good of the galaxy.
Jedi seek to improve themselves through knowledge and training.
The Jedi are the guardians of civilization, yet do not allow civilization to destroy needlessly.
A Jedi uses the Force for knowledge and defense, never for aggression or personal gain.
A corollary of the Code was “A Jedi does not act for personal power.”
The lightsaber is the symbol of the members of the Jedi Order.
If a Jedi ignites his lightsaber, he must be ready to take a life.
Jedi respect each other, and all other life forms.
Jedi must put the needs of the community above the needs of individuals.
A Jedi must protect the weak and defenseless from evil.
Jedi must always cooperate in battle or crisis.
Jedi must not have wants; self-reliance must be shown.
