Orders of Sith

Over the last 20+ years, thousands of people from the around the world have come together to explore and develop Sith Realism.

Over that period, dozens of different branches of thought have been developed by multiple different groups. The internet is a fickle mistress though and most of those sites no longer work, so I’ve collected every lecture I could find in the hopes this knowledge will never be lost again.

Sith Organisations

r/SithOrder

r/SithOrder as it stands today, is a splinter group that developed from a Reddit group set up to explore the idea of fleshing out the fictional Sith into a real-world philosophy and power base. Interestingly,  they developed completely separately from the rest of the force realist community.

Fatum Operandi

The Fatum Operandi was founded by Satelle after they felt they had outgrown the trappings of force realism during the Second Dynasty.

Sithist Cabal

The Sithist Cabal is founded by Seti,  in response to disillusionment with the Force Academy after a number of members were banned.

Draconis’ Blogs

Draconis, the founder of the Order of the Sith and a Head of the Dark Aspect, was a prolific writer, including writing his thoughts in a number of different blogs.

The New Sith Order

Founded by Darth Sanguinus, The New Sith Order is a semi-active forum dedicated to exploring Sith philosophy.

The Sith Holocron

Founded by Darth Silus, The Sith Holocron was a blog and forum dedicated to creating a philosophy for the Sith as envisioned in the fiction.

Order of the Sith

The Order of the Sith, founded by Draconis, is one of the oldest still-running Sith Realism communities in the world.

Dark Jedi

Dark Jedi was a blog detailing the thoughts of  Seti, one of the Heads of the Dark Aspect at the Force Academy.

Sinister Arcanum

A blog contributed to by a number of Masters of the Dark Aspect:

Force Academy

The Force Academy is one of the oldest and most active Force Realism communities in the world.

Editor’s Note: The tradition at the Force Academy is for each new leader to reorganise the training system, which has led to the separate training systems being referred to as separate dynasties.

Blogs

Some of the Heads of Aspects also had their own blogs where they explored their thoughts:

Jedi Organisations

As the community grew from nothing, many of those who would be Sith existed first on Jedi platforms. I’ve gathered all the relevant dark aspect material below:

The Temple of the Jedi Arts

The Temple of the Jedi Arts was built around the idea of learning real lessons from the mythos of Star Wars, including being the first site to explore Sith Realism.

Jedi Council

A role-playing forum that also explored what it would mean to follow a darker path.

Jedi Praxeum

An RPG site that grew into something more. For most, this was the beginnings of the Force Realist community.

Jedi Lore

The general opinion is that Jedi Lore was the first site to take the fiction from a realistic stand-point, to try and gleam real life lessons from a fictional source.

Jedi Academy

Unlike its other, more RPG focused sites, the Jedi Academy helped lay the foundations of Force Realism as we know it today.
