Jedi Order - Exile & Custom Jedi

Recommended Posts

Hello again, another thread here this time about exile within the Jedi Order. Hope everyone has their beverage before we start, don't worry I'll wait.

Exile is used by many cultures in the Star Wars galaxy, its often a form of punishment. Exile in the Jedi Order was usually a case of being expelled from the order for a wrong doing, typically going against the Jedi council or their ways. An extreme example would be turning to the dark side of the force. Master Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi went into exile by choice after the birth of the Galactic Empire, however this was a case of going into hiding, this was not any form of punishment other than their own failures. Other Jedi such as Ashoka Tano were expelled from the Jedi order, subsequently leading to her exile. We are unsure if exile was a common occurrence however knowing that this practice existed gives enough leeway for speculation in the possibility for there to be unknown former Jedi in the time of the first Galactic Empire. This is essentialy one of the few explanations for you to create your own Jedi whiles still being as 'lore friendly' as possible.

Short and sweet, thanks for reading

My only comment is that this really only gives two people the ability to make their own Jedi. Ffg and role playing GM's. they won't let us create our own Jedi in legion for gameplay reasons, but it does free them up to get a little creative assuming Lucasfilm lets them

Not so fast. For reference, 40k has several Armies that feature a baseplate commander option with a wide array of upgrades that can easily represent different things and Characters.

Wouldn't even be a little bit hard to do the same here.

Sure, but ffg has had this IP for a long time and they have never done something like this. They have done things like design their own canon ships, but never anything like what you are suggesting. Think of how easy it would have been to do customized pilots in x-wing and they never did.  I'll be happy if I'm wrong but I wouldn't get your hopes up.

To calm the winds of this argument might I add that you can simply proxy your customised model and his or her background for a character already in the game, such as Luke or Vader. There is no need to go into any more complexity than this and people should generally accept you using rules that already exist. I suppose by customisation I refer to writing your own story or background and making your own miniature the way you desire.
