Title: The road of Darth Rex
Description: with Master Carnefex
DarthCarnefex - December 15, 2007 05:42 PM (GMT)
just to warn you Im still learning the whole online RPG thing, so it will fade in and out.
1. Why do you chose to be a Sith?
I know your "born into it" from your history, but thats not enough.
While your at it I want you and Sabith to have a sparring session. You should be able to find the place.
DARTH_REX - December 18, 2007 08:37 PM (GMT)
Why do I want to become a Sith? Aside from the fact that I like black, and those red lightsabers are just waaay cool...
I believe that in the Darkside there is enlightenment. Its like what Palpatine said to Anakin. That one must have a broader view of the Force to understand it. I think the Sith get it.
That the Jedi way is unrealistic, stagnant. Even arrogant.
Passion is important:Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
This makes sense.Emotions like anger are a part of us. Its unrealistic to assume that you can't feel it that its bad.. Anger can be a good thing. It depends on what you do with it. This is where I agree with the Sith & think the Jedi are wrong.
I want to learn more about the ways of the Sith. To learn more about their philosophies, the customs. Sure, there are other Darkside cults out there, but the Sith are no mere cult. They wrote the book on the Darkside. I want to read that book...& add to it.
DarthCarnefex - December 29, 2007 07:02 PM (GMT)
Good! But remember you must use and control your emotions. Don't let them controle you. Often people think their anger makes them stronger, when in reality it is a trick of the mind. They alow the anger to control them and they flail like an infant.
2. Sith and Jedi Code – Describe each and compare the differences
DARTH_REX - January 7, 2008 06:09 PM (GMT)
The Jedi Code
There is no emotion; There is peace
False. We have emotions. It is part of living. Emotions do drive us and we do act on them. But we are not controlled by them.
There is no ignorance; There is knowledge
True. However, the Jedi seem to limit this when it comes to learning about the Darkside.
There is no passion; There is serenity
As said before, this is false. Many times, passion motivates us. But it ha must be tempered with knowledge & patience.
There is no death; there is only the Force
There obviously is death. All things die & will die..
The Sith Code
Peace is a lie; There is only passion
Passion is a driving force in all things we do. But, it must not be blind. It has to be tempered with patience & knowledge.
Through passion I gain strength
The motivating force of our passions,when released at the right time, strengthens us. Makes us stronger.
Through strength I gain power
The stronger you become(in the Force) the more power you will obtain.
Through power I gain victory
Power is the key to helping you to overcome obstacles, limitations & weaknesses.
Through victory my chains are broken
To be set free of the limitations & restrictions of others & self.
The Force shall set me free
To use the Force to obtain greater power.
The Jedi code reflects their belief of the Force as a partner. As an ally. That they are guided by it. The code eschews emotions, passions in favor of using peace to center oneself in the Force
The Sith code reflects a view of the raw power of the Darkside of the force & emotions associated with it. To use it for self-empowerment not servitude

very good, and nice to have you back. I want ur input on the combat thread in the RPG help area.
3. Who is your favorite Sith? Give a bio including name, homeworld & era.
DARTH_REX - January 8, 2008 02:42 AM (GMT)
My favorite Sith Master? Bane, Palpatine, & Maul.
Bane: For his enlightenment & developing the Rule O Two. For realizing that secrecy was the best way to undermine your enemies.
Sidious: Basically the ultimate result of Bane’s philosophy. His secret maneuvering achieved the dream of the Sith: Destruction of the Jedi Order & domination of the Galaxy. But it was how he did it. Not by conquering the Galaxy with his own army.
Basically by using deceit, he was able to get the Galaxy to give him power.
Darth Maul: His martial prowess was superb. An excellent fighter.
I’ll try to narrow it down to 1.
Was born on Apatros & was a miner there. After an incident in which he killed several Republic officers, he fled & joined the Army of Darkness. He distinguishes himself, and his Force talents brought him to the attention of the Sith. As a result, he was taken to Korriban to receive training.
While there, he grew dissatisfied with the teaching. Especially the philosophy of the Brotherhood of Darkness. He was more attracted to the old teachings he found in ancient manuscripts. This led him to make a journey to the Valley of the Dark Lords in a futile search for the Spirits of the ancient Sith Lords. After returning to the Academy in failure, he went to Lehon. There he found the holocron of the legendary Sith Master Darth Revan.
It was here that he formed What would become the Rule of Two. He felt that this was truer to the nature of the Darkside. He would reform the Sith order in this image. But 1 obstacle lay ahead: the Brotherhood of Darkness.
Bane eventually went to Ruusan. There the Brotherhood was in an all out battle against the Jedi & their Army of Light. Using deceipt, and the knowledge that he had learned on Lehon of the Thought bomb, he was able to manipulate the leader of the Brotherhood, Kaan into a trap which destroyed the Sith Order.
After destroying the Sith Order, Bane chose a new apprentice, Zannah. With this new apprentice he re-started the Sith. Now, he would re-build the Sith.
Why is he my favorite?: He thought that secrecy & deception was the best way. To operate in the shadow, yet hide in the open. To eventually gain power this way.
The ultimate result in this philosophy was Darth Sidious.
DarthCarnefex - January 8, 2008 04:50 PM (GMT)
Very nice. One of the things I like about Bane is although he believes in his own power, at the same time he continues to search for knowledge and doesn't view himself as infalible.
Don't forget to stay active on the EUC sight too. One of the important things for a sith, apprentice, and senate aid is to keep our board active and interesting. We have had waining intrest and its up to all of us to get and keep us dominant.
4. Name three Sith ruled worlds – Give brief description of each world and the events that happened.
DARTH_REX - January 9, 2008 03:30 AM (GMT)
3 Sith ruled worlds. The worlds I chose are:
1. Korriban: The emblematic world of the Sith. Homeworld to the Sith species, and eventually the Sith order itself. It is the site of the Valley of the Dark Lords Which contains the tombs of the Sith Lords. Also, was the site of the Sith Academy. Barren desolate world.
2. Ziost: A world strong in the Darkside of the Force. Also capital of the Sith Species after they departed from Korriban. It was also the capital of the Sith Empire. Frozen world, arid.
3. Yavin 4: Controlled first by Naga Saddow with his Massassi warriors. Later Yavin 4 came under the control of Freedon Nadd & even later by Exar Kun & his apprentice Ulic Qel Droma. Yavin is a lush forested moon.
DarthCarnefex - January 9, 2008 04:33 PM (GMT)
5. Sith Rule Structure –Name them and describe strengths and weaknesses of each.
Also I want what was responsible for the rise and fall of each.
DARTH_REX - January 25, 2008 03:34 AM (GMT)
OOC: Sorry for the extreme lateness in my reply. Things have been going crazy on the job. Lots of projects & Very late hours.
IC: Darth Rex.
Three Sith Eras
The Sith Empire was originally founded by Dark Jedi. They lasted for thousands of years & eventually invaded the Republic. At that time, they were ruled by the Sith Lord Nagga Saddow.
New Sith Empire: Founded & led by Darth Revan. The formation led to the Jedi Civil War. They came close to conquering the Republic. However, they were defeated by Darth Revan after his redemption.
Bane’s era: After the destruction of the Brotherhood of Darkness, Darth Bane, the only surviving Sith Lord, restructured the Sith Order into the Rule of Two, That there would only be two Sith at a time…Master & apprentice. This system lasted for 1000 years until the Sith were finally able to conquer the Galaxy under Darth Sidious, aka Emperor Palpatine.
DarthCarnefex - January 28, 2008 09:23 PM (GMT)
What would you say was the "end" of Ban's order?
DARTH_REX - January 29, 2008 12:45 PM (GMT)
The cause of the End of Bane's order was the redemption & betrayal of Darth Sidious' apprentice Darth vader. Which is a case for not using a fallen Jedi as a Sith apprentice.
Palpatine should have replaced Vader long ago when he became incapacitated. However, for some reason he felt Vader still had a useful purpose. I doubt if Darth Bane would have.
DarthCarnefex - February 5, 2008 11:26 PM (GMT)
Good. In regards to Vader, in Dark Lord Sidious is very clear that even with his injuries he is still far more powerful than anyone else out there, if not ever. Although if we want to realy analize this in regards to Dark Empire why he didn't clone Vader is a question. Moving on.
6. The Darkside Compendium – Who wrote it? What does it consists of? Give a description of each one.
DARTH_REX - February 9, 2008 02:09 PM (GMT)
The Darkside Compendium was written by Darth Sidious(aka Emperor Palpatine).
It consists of: the Book of Anger, the Weakness Inferiors, & Creation of Monsters.
It was intended to explore the various facets of the Darkside. However it was cut short with the death of Sidious @ Endor.
The Weakness of Inferiors: controlling inferiors through their own weaknesses.
Book of Anger: Harnessing the power of the Force through raw emotion. Specifically anger. To control and dominate the Foce & use it to do the same to others.
Creation of Monsters: deals with the creation of creatures through Sith Alchemy
But how Master do you combat Sith Alchemy? In my one encounter with it, I figured that if it came from the Darkside & we use the Darkside, then shouldn't a darkside be able to conrol it? If that Darksider is strong enough that is.
DarthCarnefex - February 16, 2008 07:33 AM (GMT)
First I should appologize for my absence.
There are ways to control the creations of others. However that can be difficult at best. The problem is you need to be well versed in the creation process and must be powerful enough to over ride its creators hold on it. A very difficult set of cercomstances to meet. I tend to think that Bane's aproach in the fortress of Lady Darzu is the soundest. For more specific alcamy info I suggest contacting Lady Mystique. That is her specialty as finding new and exciting ways of inflicting excessive physical injury in battle is mine.
7. Explain the differences between Dark Jedi and Sith.
DARTH_REX - February 16, 2008 01:16 PM (GMT)
Thank you for the suggestion Master, I will contact Lady Mystique.
Dark Jedi vs Sith
Both Dark Jedi & Sith use the Darkside of the Force. But here their similarities end. The Sith have their own customs and traditions. And have a deeper understanding of the Darkside of the Force. The Sith have no fear whereas the Dark Jedi do.
Master, I would like to work on my dueling skills. I would like to have a few sparing sessions with you when time permits.
DarthCarnefex - February 19, 2008 06:46 AM (GMT)
i'll set stuff up in our hall. I could use the practice myself.
I would like you to elaborate on some of the things that the sith have that dark jedi do not.
