We were once children of them all, we were once children of just the stars. Simply children, we lived the life of balance and nature. We lived alongside the kind that were just us, but then the balance of this seemed to severe as those individuals with different ideals than our own set themselves aside. For a long time in their Republic, as we hid in the shadows and underground, they called themselves Jedi and Sith. But they all were once Elder, they were all once born from the same people. They simply had forgotten their own roots and fought for who was better. But light and dark existed together, they always co-existed. To fight over which was stronger was simply childish. A simple fools game.
As the Old Republic fell and they began to try to build themselves, we awaken. We the Elder had come again to this world. A new fresh of air. We couldn't let this unbalance of nature exist for long. It could destroy the balance. We the Elder created our code and our creed. We were this world's immune system. We were the white blood cells in a body and we had decided we were going to persecute the diseases destroying the lands that once belonged to both light and dark. Without the balance of both the world was severed and rotten.
Plot Main Idea:
In ancient time The Sith and the Jedi branched from the Elder, more natural forms of force creatures. Their powers untapped and wild, much like the force unleashed unlimiters.
The Elder descended and faded, disappeared like ghost. Dwelling in underground cities mostly. Before there were sith or jedi, the Elder all lived with one another. They were true mediators of peace. They had a form of law that was very much like chinese budhism. The acceptance of both light and dark ying yang.
They had always been there. And when the Old Republic begins to fall and the Sith and the Jedi are a clash of extremist [i'm sorry I always thought the sith and the jedi were both bullshit extremist] views, destroying, and killing the world. The Organization of the Elder begins to move.
Most stealth assassins, they have been "programmed" through teachings to become the white blood cells of the Sith and Jedi world. A nuetral party, kind of. They act like the immune response in the body. And begin to wipe out the foreign invaders making the world sick.
The Elder were never really sealed or sleeping. Since they are assasins they have always kept tabs on the Republic. The introduction of the Elder, means because they accept both good and evil which means your Elder characters will be able to use light and dark skill styles.
The Sith and Jedi will be also playable as well. Though we don't want any lame Obi-Wans running around or Anakin. No god no Anakins.
I'd also like to briefly explain that the Jedi and Sith current view of the force is wrong. Well okay it isn't wrong, but I'm changing it. The Sith and Jedi's current view is simply that there is minichlorins in the blood stream. And that was just way to weird and complicated and a little...imo...kind of stupid.
The Elder tap into more natural roots of the force and actually know where the force comes from. The Force is much more like spirit energy, entwined in one's soul. Much like Chakra from Naruto or DBZ kami kami ha.
This gives Elder a simple new tool, called Unlimiters and Overload. They really are kind of like the force unleashed. They have a more natural control over the force than Sith or Jedi.
-All though the Elder are playable, I can see how this can get out of hand. I also know that its possible most will go for it. Therefore we're only accepting a few other Elders. Since Digit and I are going to be playing Elder characters to focus the group a bit more.
-For Sith and Jedi we'll let you design your own lightsabers and force abilities. Just because they appear unpowered in our explanation of Elder, you can design them as you like. If you balance them out with their strengths and weakneses you'll have a character that is underpowered. Your characters powers are based on your own limitations as a writer creatively.
-I'd also like to explain further Unlimters and Overload. Overload is a strong burst of force, its kind of like when Goku powers up before he turns super saiyan. Not that they turn super saiyan, just they overload a large charge of force burst to create crater size holes in the ground. Overload can only be activated by those closest to the balance. And it leaves them weaker than a goldfish in an aquarium so don't rely on it. Unlimiters is a special technology that the Elder created. They are like wristwatches that help them channel their powers in a pure way. The old generation tends to frown upon Unlimiters, where as the younger generation tend to express a like in them.
Any questions feel free to ask any one of us.
