The Mandalorian Wars
Paths and their Virtues
The Jedi Code:
The Jedi Order was founded on principle and a code that every Jedi Order member must adhere to and follow for it is the essence of being a Jedi. Champions of the Light side of the Force and defenders of the weak and powerless. These are tenants upheld by the Jedi of the CIS, but few Jedi in the New Republic still value and teach these.
“There is no emotion, there is peace.
There is no ignorance, there is knowledge.
There is no passion, there is serenity.
There is no chaos, there is harmony.
There is no death, there is the Force.”

Path of the Living Force:
The feral followers of the Living Force accept their destiny as the greatest survivors in the world. Abandoning civilization, they give in to hunger and isolation, giving them room to heed their inner darkness and in so doing, giving it no need to overwhelm them. They typically have no patience for scheming, preferring to act where others think.
- Exist in accord with the needs of the Force
- Do what you must to survive. No more, no less.
- The past is over, the future is not yet written. There is only the present.

Path of Kings:
The Force User believes that all Jedi/Sith are empowered to rule, but that only the strong, the swift, the cunning, and the bold can seize the throne and hold it. Carefully controlled, the passions of the force can raise a leader up to greatness and give him the power to conquer his enemies and hold onto his throne.
- There are only two roles in this world: that of master and that of servant.
- You are superior to mortals, made to command.
- To master others, you must first master yourself and the Darkness within.
- Only those who seize power gain it; only those who use power keep it.
- Your word is your bond. Without it, you are nothing.

Path of the Grey
The path of the Grey Jedi. The Code of those that believe the Force is neither good nor evil but how it is used. Though a very unpopular opinion among the Jedi Order, those that follow it are not bared from the Order. It is not the power one holds, but how it is used and how one goes about it
- The ability to reason separates man from beast.
- Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
- All beings are brothers
- Respect is earned with dignity and justice

The Sith Code:
Once a character falls to light side 1, they fall to the dark side and have to start down the dark side path and now follow the Sith Code of Conduct.
If force users are damned by the dark side anyway, then why should they not indulge in their dark desires? Sith exalt their power and use it to satisfy every wicked impulse. They master the darkness by indulging and feeding it, existing is cooperation with it. True Sith are selfish to the core.
“Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.
The Force shall free me.”
