What Did They Believe?
“A fan site to Star Wars and the mythology, it offered an RPG training program from both Jedi and Sith. A Fan Site that inspired much more. We would call this Solo Training and RPG-ism. ” – Opie Macleod, Jedi Historian
What Was Their Inspiration?
The mythology and writing of the Star Wars universe seem to be the only inspiration for Gedi. He was a talented writer and was using the site as a testing ground to write his fan fiction.
History of Organisation:
Like The Jedi Praxeum, Jedi Lore asked the question; why couldn’t you live like a Jedi in the real world – what’s stopping us from building a philosophy around this?
Again, the site was fictional so didn’t offer what people wanted – a real training program to become a real Jedi in the real world. Also, the site didn’t offer any communication between the author and other students of the site.
By this time, chat rooms were starting to become big, and the lack of communication available is what eventually led to the site being abandoned by the Jedi community.
N/A – Although most of the older members of the Force Realist community will have at least known of this site.
Kronos’ Musings: Although fictional, Jedi Lore offered the first glimpse of what a philosophy based on the Dark Aspect of the Force would look like. If the Jedi Praxeum was the “first Jedi site”, then Jedi Lore was the first Sith site.
