I am Jensaarai Lord, Ryuk Ryuzaki
I've posted here before, along time ago when i first set up the Jensaarai Alliance but i am happy to declare the reopening of our once popular alliance.
Full clan name: jensaarai jedi alliance, for short we are otherwise known just the Jensaarai Alliance. clan tag |JJA|
Web address: Jensaarai Jedi Alliance | . You can access the forums by clicking on the holonet option.
server I.P: 188.8.131.52:29070
We currently have 12 members but we reopened last week so, we hopefully will have more soon.
We have made several changes to the order since it has been reopened. For instance, we are no longer a jedi clan. We have fully embraced the ways of the jensaarai, a peaceful and honorable order of warriors. We are a heavy role play clan and expect only role players to join our ranks however, we try not to take our roles seriously all of the time and rather have fun and enjoy ourselves.
We at the Jensaarai Alliance believe that the most important part of being a jensaarai is our training regime and our teachings which have benefitted our students in the past. We assure any person looking to join will be satisfied with the amount of training we do. Here is a code which our order is based upon:
The Code of the Jensaarai
The Jensaarai code written by Ryuk Ryuzaki
Our ideology shall not be a barrier,
Our way of life shall not be a sin,
Our supreme intelligence, shows only the truth,
We follow the truth in all endeavors,
Tread the path of both light and dark,
Experience rebirth through the power of the force,
Witness the force in its all entirety
Core Tenets of the Jensaarai
The Defender oriented esoteric military order of Force Users known as the Jensaarai strive to live lives of vigilance, courage, loyalty, wisdom, service, and growth. The term Defender is used because the Jensaarai seek to exemplify traits that are observable from both those serving in law enforcement and the military. The goals of a Jensaarai are listed as follows:
~ To serve others with integrity and good will ~ To pursue the wonders of the Force ~ To protect those in need ~ To live valiantly and honorably ~ To be mindful and courageous ~ To respect those in authority ~ To eschew unfairness, meanness and deceit ~ To seek truth wherever it may be found ~ To honor and strengthen relationships and the family
Jensaarai seek practicality and effectiveness in their training. They focus on certain areas upon which to study academically and experientially (theory and application). These areas of interest include but aren't limited to:
*Guardianship ~ Strategy and Tactics ~ Safety and Security ~ Emergency Preparation
*Force Integration ~ Force Awareness & Manipulation ~ Healing Techniques ~ Combat Applications
*Service ~ A.D.R. Knowledge and Skill ~ Volunteering ~ Community Involvement
*Core ~ Academic Interest ~ Family ~ Warrior Virtues / Character Development ~ Personal Growth
Focusing on these areas assists the Jensaarai in developing strong character traits. These traits help the order to fulfill it’s overall mission, that of Guardianship, Force Integration, Service and Core Growth. In other words, developing strong, empowered and positive members who in turn radiate those traits to those around them.
The Jensaarai Order is a hierarchical organization. Rank is respected and serves as a representation of training, ability, responsibility and authority. Jensaarai will strive to the best of their ability to fulfill mandates given by those in positions of authority.
Jensaarai are required to meditate for at least 2 minutes each day, exercise regularly and train in an approved ‘combat focused’ martial art. There may be exceptions made for members away from the academy.
If you havn't noticed, we do not specify which side of the force we follow. We believe the force is only one entity and both sides of the force can be used for the purpose of peace. We encourage our students to feel emotion like anger and sadness but to harness those emotion to help them fight for peace. That is why we welcome both people wishing to be a jedi or sith but we expect our students to act honorably and respectably. You could compare our order to the spartans i suppose :D A warrior race.
As our core tenets explain, we study not only history of the jensaarai but war tactics, and combat forms. I myself am a warlord or battle master and train our hopefuls in the art of light saber forms and war tactics. Other Jensaarai lords teach melee classes, saber technique and history or teachings. If you dont know the lightsaber forms, feel free to read about them on our website.
Our ranking system is as follows:
Hopeful: the first rank of the Jensaarai. Given to force sensitives that wish to learn the ways of the jensaarai. All you must do to obtain this rank is ask the Jensaarai lords to join, apply on our holonet (forum) and you will be admitted into the order straight away. You are expected to act respectfully and attend class. If we dislike your attitude to citizens or other jensaarai, you will be sent on your way.
Disciple: Disciple is a rank given to those that pass the first trial of the Jensaarai. The trial is given after roughly a week of initiation (being a hopeful). Disciples are given admin teleportation for training purposes and usually train individually underneath there own master (Jensaarai Lord). They still however attend classes held by other Jensaarai lords. They are given a master according to there natural lightsaber form and personality.
Jensaarai Knight: A disciple must undergo extreme training and must have qualified for the Knight trial. Few have passed successfully due to the dangers of the trial. If you pass the trial however, many paths are available. You must choose a prestige class which vary (see our website for details) and that Prestige class becomes your tag e.g. |JJA|Warlord Ryuzaki. You are not permitted to choose a disciple of your own but are not allowed to teach classes for hopefuls (you are only allowed to train your own disciple). Whilst doing this, you must train yourself in the areas of your prestige class.
Jensaarai Lord: A Jensaarai Knight must show extreme maturity and skill to be chosen for this rank. There are many qualifications needed. One major one is that you must have trained a disciple to Knight level. The council of the Jensaarai are the only ones that can admit a Knight to become a Jensaarai Lord. You are now considered a master of your chosen prestige class and with the councils permission, can hold classes for Hopefuls.
Jensaarai Lord of the council: The final obtainable rank of the Jensaarai. Only the Jensaarai council can permit another Lord to join them. You must posess moderate skill in diplomacy and decision making skills. This rank requires Rational thought aswell as skill with a saber.
Saarai-Kaar: The Saarai-Kaar is the spirtual leader of the Jensaarai. He is the founder of the order and the leader of the council. It is a rank that can only be obtained by the founder himself but it has no speacial priveledges. The council decide the fate of the order, not one man.
Again i repeat, we are not sith. Often people have made the mistake of thinking this. We don't appreciate false accusations. We are an open minded order and expect people to atleast try to understand us.
We have allies aswell. Our allies are currently: The Crimson Empire, a race of warriors similar to our own order and also the Grey Jedi Academy.
We look forward to having visitors at our academy. We would like to also clarify that we do not just welcome the skilled, but also the new players aswell. We very much enjoy teaching students of all skill levels and would be happy to train new players.
May the force be with you
to much to read lol
ah im sorry. I was just trying to provide sufficient information. Guess i got a bit carried away :D
I think this is great. The Jensaarai were not explored enough in the novels. When you said attend classes; how often are they. I would like to join, but do't want to make a false commitment and my real-life classes take priority. I want to get into a good college.
Darth Masiaka of the long blades.
Sorry for the long reply. Well, it depends on how many disciples are on server. Alot of us have our own apprentices but every disciple learns from me and the other 2 council lords at some point. Classes are held when there are 3 disciples on server, at the moment they are not scheduled. Ofcourse we do not expect people to be on every day. I myself have other commitments but i try to come atleast once everyday because im the leader. Other knights are active, other lords are aswell, so there is always someone on server. The more members we have, the merrier. Your very welcome to join.
Thank you. I will wait untill June, if the offer is still open. My teachers are slamming me with pre-finals studying+busywork+extra grades. June is the first time that I have ANY time to myself. Right now I am doing math as I type. Yay math!!!!! Psych.
We can never have enough members to be honest. We look forward to seeing you turn up at the door of our academy in June.
Thank you kindly. I'd like to know why this clan was started, if you don't mind. And what being in a clan would entail (other than what is listed above). I never quite understood the concept of clans. I was hoping this would help.
Ofcourse. Well, although we do not like to dwell on our pasts i will give you the story of this orders birth.
On the first day i started playing, i joined the Dark Angels Jedi order which is actually in this list. After 2 weeks i had already surpassed many of there jedi and become a jedi knight (a rank which in there clan, took most people 2 years to obtain). I started studying the lightsaber forms by myself and adapting aspects of each form into game. I became friends with the Dark angels enemies though, and i realised that the dark angels had no reason to dislike them. Everyone in DAJ began to distrust me but many of the jedi in DAJ didn't even know who there enemies were. They were just told "thats the enemy, you hate them". After many weeks of them attempting to spy on my conversations and attempting to manipulate me, i strongly grew to dislike the council and i left with some friends of mine and started JJA. Shortly after, a master at DAJ was assassinated by the sith and the order was closed.
The reason why we are now Jensaarai is, i made the fatal mistake of rejoining DAJ when it reopened only to find that things hadn't got better but rather worse. I don't want to start bad-mouthing them because they are trying to recruit here and it isn't fair. I will say this though: They have disgraced the jedi way. Enough so to make me turn away from the ways of the jedi and build my order on the core-tenets of the Jensaarai. In the end even they admitted that i was right and are now attempting to change by stealing our ideas.
Don't get me wrong though. There are good jedi our there and i intend to find them and ally myself with them. But there ways are not for me anymore.
This is the way that the Jensaarai Alliance was built my friend
As for your other question, especially with RP clans, it entails being Loyal and respecting the authority in the clan. Alot of people think that they can insult jedi masters because they can beat them in a duel. Sadly that shouldn't be the case. Most likely that person was made a jedi master for other reasons like being intelligent or being a good teacher, posessing wisdom. If your a hopeful in JJA and your disrespectful to any other member, you will usually be kicked straight out. We once had someone who got kicked out in less then 30 minutes because he wouldn't stop laming.
Im not sure if i've helped answer your questions but, i hope i have :)
for everyones information, we finally declared that we will cut Jedi from our name now. We just don't see the point in it now. So we are officially now, Jensaarai Alliance
