The following information outlines the fundamental ideals and the Code that the RuneScape Order of Jedi Knights is built on. The main idea behind the Jedi Knights is to create a RuneScape Community, get together with other players, make some friends, have fun, and strive to make RuneScape a better place.
The sword of a Jedi exists to protect; a Jedi will always uphold the ideals of chivalry and honour- The Jedi Knights were created as an order to stand for protection. The Jedi stand against the evils of RuneScape, as well as corruption and maliciousness. A Jedi will uphold the ideals of honour and chivalry and will support and assist those in genuine need. In such, the Jedi at creation, and continue, to oppose the idea of Random Player Killing (RPKing). The deliberate targeting of other players for greed, bloodlust, hate, or vanity is an act of dishonour, and no Jedi should ever lower himself to it...
Honour all Jedi; a Jedi will behave with honour in his or her journeys. Respect fellow members of the clan, and show courtesy to others.- A Jedi is expected to behave with respect when dealing with others. Our clan is a community, whose goal is to build friendship and camaraderie between members. Mutual respect between one another is paramount. And in your encounters in RuneScape, treat others as you would expect yourself to be treated. Let reason and maturity prevail rather then hate and disdain.
A Jedi must be committed to the Jedi Order, and allegiance to the clan must be genuine. - The Jedi Knights require that all members of the clan not be currently enrolled or aligned in the ranks of any other RuneScape organization that considers itself a clan. A Jedi should also not be in a situation of conflict of interest with another clan or organization in RuneScape.
The Jedi work towards the betterment of our fellow Jedi, ourselves, RuneScape as a whole, and the improvement of the clan - One of the primary ideals of this clan is to assist each other in the game and come together as a community to help each other improve. Masters are to assist apprentices in RuneScape. Jedi should aid each other when in need. Together, we work to improve the RuneScape Order of Jedi Knights and create a better place in RuneScape for all of us.
The Council are elected by the Jedi to serve the Jedi. Leaders within the clan will Lead responsibly, and will answer to the Jedi members when questioned. - The Jedi Knights practice an Elected Leadership system. One where every clan member will have their say in choosing who will lead the clan. No council will remain in permanent power; No Councilor or clan leader will put himself above the membership. The Council is in position to continue the survival of the RuneScape Order of Jedi knights, uphold the ideals of the Jedi Code, and to serve the members of this Clan.
Wear the uniform of the Jedi with Pride, and join the clan in a unified front on the Clans Home Worlds. - Jedi are expected to wear the uniform of a Jedi Knight to all clan functions. The uniform of a Jedi includes: Robes, any colour or type, and the Jedi Clan Cloak with the Clan Insignia; A Jedi will not wield a blade during the clan meetings, furthering the ideals of forming a clan community. All members are asked to regularly play on the Jedi Knights home worlds: World 8 for Free Players, World 76 for RuneScape Members, so our clan members can always stick together, always be able to assist, and not be too far away during times of need.
The Jedi Knights are open to all RuneScape Players. The only requirements of membership are to Remain active, Honour the Jedi, and Honour the Code. - Jedi Knights will allow any RuneScape Players to join the clan. Character Level, Character Type, and Character Class are not factors for joining the Jedi. Members joining are only expected to: not be current members of another RuneScape Clan, remain active within the Jedi Knights Honour and follow the ideals of the Jedi Code, and not be of negative standing with the Jedi Knights.
The ideals and rules listed in the Code are general ideas of this clan's stance and how all Jedi are expected to conduct themselves. We are not without understanding and will not hold members to a stringent discipline. But, acting contrary to the Code may result in a review of status as a Jedi Knight.
Jedi Knights are expected to follow the ideals of the Code and keep them in mind during their RuneScape journeys.
For aspiring applicants, this is the way the clan is and forever will be. If the policies above conflict with your playing style, this may not be the right clan for you.
