Dawn of the Jedi Champaign

The Jedi weren't always a pure philiosophical group dedicated to the balance of the force. When they first started getting organized on the galactic level, they were simply a group of force users trying to expand their knowledge of the force.
In a few centuries, the jedi masters in the jedi council will implement restrictions based on what they have learned. Everything that leads to the dark side has simply not yet been figured out. All masters and padawans really know is to try to be generally good.
Good luck to the upstart jedi as they attempt to avoid falling to the dark side without the traditions that are yet to be established.
'In game mechanics terms, this will be very much like an old republic game. All players will have some levels in jedi, but without the cultural restictions of a "modern" jedi order, they are allowed to multiclass freely.
However, dark side points will be given normally. Actions that would gain dsp in any other setting still apply. Without the knowledge of meditation, the easiest way to loose dark side points in other games will be unavailable. Players will need to play the fact that their characters "feel" themselves slipping. They will have to genuinely attone for previous actions.
Characters that do completely fall to the dark side, fall under the control of the gm. The player will no longer have a say in the actions the character takes.'
