Join or join not, there is no try. The Jedi Republic is looking for force enlightened individuals to join the jedi order. For my ally is the Force. And a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us.
Begin your training http://www.galciv.com/metaverse/empires.asp?id=336 Link and perhaps one day you too shall be a master jedi!

May the Force be with You, always

Ah, the force is powerful, but beware of the dark side.

                      
#4  by Veteran Qui-Gon Jinn - 7/15/2003 1:18:22 PM

I challenge any who serve the dark side to join the Jedi Republic. We would rather have you openly battling in our empire than lurking in the shadows, your skill in the Dark Jedi Arts wasting away, untested.

Or have the Sith truely been defeated, and vanished from this galaxy forever???

I wouldn't say vanished forever...There are always two, a master and an apprentice

JEDI REPUBLIC RECRUITMENT COMMERCIAL - TELEVISION FORMAT - PRELIMINARY

[[Opening voiceover]]

This public service announcement is brought to you by the Jedi Republic.

[[Opening music - Vader's "Imperial March." Opening shot - wide angle of a planet under attack by Drengin corvettes. Switch to closeup shot - Drengin mercenary is honing a Ginsu knife set as Midwestern farmers scream in background]]

The saga...is FAR from over!

[[Panoramic view - Hundreds of Yor ground force phalanxes march in perfect machine formation, mercilessly gunning down cutlass-wielding pirates]]

Threats to galactic stability and order are increasing since the fall of the Old Republic!

[[Switch to interior shot of a smoky, torch-lit, rough stone tower. Crack Altarian PSI-Troopers surround a lone, sweating, shivering wizard, who clutches his staff under their steely gazes. The sound of his knees knocking underneath his tattered robes is VERY noticeable]]

Dark forces are rampant, threatening to overrun us all!

[[Slow fade to black; music volume fades to absolute silence]]

The downtrodden of the Metaverse need a new ally to fight this evil...

[[Light slowly increases, revealing a closeup of Yoda's face, looking into the distance, in "wise old master" expression. Camera positioned LOW - under floor level if possible - so that he appears, well, almost 4 feet tall. Yoda slowly turns and looks down at camera, narrows eyes dangerously]]

"MY ally is the Force...And a POWERFUL ally it is!"

[[Roll audio of Star Wars overture, a.k.a. "Luke's Theme" - maximum volume. Fast cut to space battle with GalCiv Starfighters (modified to look suspiciously like X-Wings) peeling out of formation into a strafing run against an Arcean battleship]]

ENLIST today!

[[Cut to Qui-Gon, Dooku, etc. wielding lightsabers; chopping, slashing, and generally making a whopping big pile of scrap out of Yor death droids]]

FEEL the Force flowing through you!

[[Closeup of black gloved hand "choking" air; Torian marine in background levitating approx. 19" from floor, eyes bulging; DON'T show helmet on figure in foreground! This is a recruiting tape for Pete's sake]]

STRIKE a mighty blow against the destructive tide!

[[Back to space shot; Drengin Death St - no, TERROR STAR exploding. Use Dolby Surround on explosion SFX; crank up bass so that rumble rattles teeth of audience]]

BE A PART of the rising power for order and justice in the Metaverse!

[[Rapid "machine-gun" montage of images to raise adrenaline level of the viewer. Emphasis on lightsaber and space battles. Insert at least one image each of Leia in Jabba's Palace outfit and Amidala in skintight white outfit from Ep. II for cheesecake value. Also at least one pointless image of Artoo beeping and rocking from side-to-side; the kids always love that one]]

JOIN the Jedi Republic!

[[Music swells to climax of overture. Switch to widescreen. Jedi Knights in line-abreast formation in background, silhouetted, lightsabers ignited. Yoda positioned in the foreground, so that he looks taller/more imposing, in spotlight. Silhouette gives more visual impact for Knights and is NECESSARY to minimize disturbingly dark robes on a few members]]

[[Fast zoom to closeup of Yoda]]

"Strong we are, already...but perhaps...THERE IS ANOTHER."

[[Music ends - abrupt cut to black. Brief pause. Then, yellow text fades in on black screen - NO VOICEOVER]]

The Force is with us.
Is it with you?

Excellent advert for the Jedis, Obi Wan.

Though the pathetic wizard showcased in there should really join the Fellowship, then he would learn how to wipe the galactic floor with those aliens.

                        
#8  by Veteran Samurai Ben - 7/15/2003 10:28:32 PM

Ray,

Thanks! There is an outtake of Gerakken holding 20 Yor at bay with his quill that, unfortunately, I just couldn't get to work.

                    
#9  by Veteran Qui-Gon Jinn - 7/16/2003 12:18:18 AM

Nice job Obi Wan. Makes me want to sign up all over again. Kinda puts my idea to shame. I was halfway through a similiar recruitment commericial for the scholastic filmstrip format... that'll never work now.

                    
#10  by Veteran Samurai Ben - 7/16/2003 12:27:12 AM

Qui-Gon,

Aargh! I hate stomping on somebody else's creative juices. If you're up for it, we could turn this sort of thing into a serial...

BTW, congrats on your promotion and shiny new medal. I think I need to spend less time on the boards and more in the game - I now have two in progress and may try the GOTM, but this sort of thing is just too much fun to ignore.

And I am glad to see that the reports of your demise at the hands of Darth Maul were greatly exaggerated.

                    
#11  by Ambassador Ray the Wanderer - 7/16/2003 12:32:54 AM

Hey, have you guys decided on your Jedi ranks yet?

Based on my previous suggestion, (cough) Jedi Master Yoda, should be Enlightened Yoda.

                        
#12  by Veteran Samurai Ben - 7/16/2003 12:47:04 AM

Ray,

I dug out your suggestion list and will resurrect the idea over on the regular Jedi Republic communication thread. This idea has not yet been implemented as it leans toward following the Metaverse ranks, and the JR is a relatively "young" empire. Still, it merits discussion.

                    
#13  by Veteran Jedi_Master_Yoda - 7/16/2003 1:38:28 AM

(Angry Yoda voice)
WHEN 800 years YOU become, be so strong in combat YOU will not, HMMMMMMMMMM?
Jedi Master is forever, yes. hmm!

(odd humming sound fills the room, it grows louder. Just then the golden ring on Ray's finger is launched like a manget to the comparitivly small hands of Yoda)

NO!!!!
(Ray yells)
(Ray sends some of his friends, who are no bigger than Yoda to retrieve the Ring. One walks up to Yoda and tries to grab the ring)
(Yoda starts bashing bilbo on the head)
Mine, mine MINE! Or help you I will not.
(Ray is stuned)
What are you doing Yoda?!?!
My Ring mine!
(Just then Yoda throws the Ring to Qui-Gong, who then tosses it to Obi Wan. A game of monkey in the middle begins)
Ah ahahhah! Yes, yes.. So powerful now you are not hmm? Your ring you need, special you are not. The force flows through us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter.
(With that Yoda catches the Ring and throws it inches from Ray's feet.)
Take your Ring, need it I do not. My ally is the force, and a powerful ally it is! Life creates it; makes it grow! We worry not of these crude rings.
(Ray responds:)
You want the impossible.

{Que soft, sad, bell-chime Star Wars theme}

{pan to Yoda}
(Yoda looks down, as if he is sad)
Ding ding ding, ding; ding ding, ding; ding ding.....

(bump)

With all the talk of Imperial recruitment these days, we humbly ask you to consider the Jedi Republic. Join these valiant, outnumbered warriors as they struggle to restore peace and order to the Metaverse against desperate odds!

Would you rather take the quick and easy path of joining a top 5 empire and waiting for it to fall; OR, be a part of an effort to REACH the top on your own merits? Sign up NOW, and be a part of the action!

Worried about your alignment? Not a problem. The Republic welcomes good, evil and neutral faces alike. Bringing balance to the Force requires a variety of viewpoints, and we would rather have Jedi-trained Sith in the Metaverse than the rogue variety.

We would be honored if you would join us.

Hmmmm: Would you rather take the quick and easy path of joining a top 5 empire and waiting for it to fall; OR, be a part of an effort to REACH the top on your own merits?

Well that's an easy question. Always take the quick and easy road. It gives ya more time to smell the flowers after ya arrive.

                      
#19  by Citizen Gengsta - 7/24/2003 7:43:50 PM

When it's the easier path or staying true to your routes - what would you chose?

                    
#20  by Veteran Samurai Ben - 7/24/2003 7:52:01 PM

Dropbear:

If'n y'all decide to disband and jump on the pirate ship - or even commission a new one - good luck with your efforts.

If FOTR/GROSS/MWC are a well-matched trio, I was starting to think the same of Freedom Force and the Jedi Republic. Although we have more members, a lot of ours are inactive, which helps to balance things out; although you folks do have a few more vets, our overall experience levels are similar; and we're all piqued enough by GalCiv to contribute on levels beyond just posting games.

So, if you move over to G.R.O.S.S. or unfurl the ANZAC flag once again, we'll miss the company, but wish you well. If FF stays together, we'll look forward to the battles ahead.

If you choose to consider other empires, I for one wouldn't mind a killer koala with a bright red lightsaber in our ranks. "Darth Drop Bear" has a ring to it. All other superheroes are likewise welcome, although we'd need to figure something out for Slitherin to be able to hold the d#*n saber.

Good luck, and continue to have fun, regardless of which path you choose.
