Out there in the darkness, I thought I would be lost forever... but once my eyes adjusted, I found, much to my surprise, that within this darkness, I had discovered hope.

Q: Is this a religion?


The short answer is no. The longer answer is that the Sith ideology that we promote here at The New Sith Order is just that, an ideology, a philosophy. We make no supernatural or mystical claims. We base our ideas in rationality and logic.



Q: Where can I learn about the Sith Ideology?

The Grand Holocron is used to present a detailed explanation of the ideology we hold here at The New Sith Order. It also contains posts that pertain to that ideology, or to the site itself.


Q: What is required of me as a member?

The following rules apply to all:

1) Do not post anything of an adult nature (18+) or any links to such material.

2) Do not attack other members on a personal level in debates or disagreements. (Constructive criticism is not an attack.)

3) If debate arises, do so in a civil manner. Always make legitimate points, counter points, and use evidence when applicable.

4) No hate speech.

5) No spamming or advertising.

6) The use of "Darth" in your name is forbidden.



Q: What is the ranking structure?


The ranking structure here is fairly simple. The ranks are listed here from highest to lowest:

Dark Lord
Lord
Count
Saber
Shadow
Initiate



Q: What are the differences between the ranks?

Initiates: As soon as you join the forum and make your first post, you become an Initiate. Initiate is the lowest rank, and it is granted automatically. Initiates have no special privileges or authority, but this is the first step that everyone must take.

Shadow:  Shadows have been accepted by a master and have officially begun their training.  This is the lowest rank a Sith can have and still be recognized as such in the New Sith Order. Shadows study the Grand Holocron and focus their training on truly comprehending the ideology of the Sith.  Shadows are trained by Counts or Lords.

Saber:
Sabers have developed further in their training, and are working towards becoming a Count.  They have been found to understand the Sith ideology, and their training now focuses on learning the tools and skills that they will require moving forward.  Sabers are trained by Counts or Lords.

Count: Counts have the responsibility and privilege of taking on apprentices. They are responsible for the training of their apprentices, and as such, have extra responsibilities. Counts are expected to report on their apprentices training a minimum of once per week for each apprentice. Counts are trained by Lords.

Lord: Some Lords make up the Sith Council. They are responsible for making executive decisions, and for training Counts. Not all Lords are a part of this council, however, any Lord represents the peak of Sith training. They are required to report on the training of their apprentices a minimum of once per week for each apprentice. Lords are also site moderators.

Dark Lord: The Dark Lord is the current leader of The NSO, and the site administrator and owner. The Dark Lord holds veto power over the Sith Council, and assists them in their executive duties. He is responsible for the maintenance of the site itself, and any updates or improvements that may be made to it.


Q: How do I get promoted?

This process is different for each rank, and the process for each is as follows:

Initiates: An Initiate is promoted to the rank of Shadow when they are accepted as an apprentice by a Count or a Lord. Counts have full right to accept or decline requests for apprenticeship as they see fit.

Shadows:  Shadows are promoted to the rank of Saber purely at the discretion of their Count or Lord.  Once the decision is made, the promotion is complete.

Sabers: Sabers are promoted to the rank of Count by recommendation and vote. Their current Count or Lord makes a recommendation to the Sith Council, and the Council takes a vote. A simple majority will allow one to obtain the rank of Count. In order to keep such recommendations from being made too hastily, once a recommendation is made for a Saber, they can not be considered for promotion again for one month.

Count: Counts are promoted to the rank of Lord by recommendation and vote. Their current Lord makes a recommendation to the Sith Council that their apprentice be promoted, and the Council takes a vote. Only a 2/3 majority vote will allow one to obtain the rank of Lord. In order to keep such recommendations from being made too hastily, once a recommendation is made for a Count, they can not be considered for promotion again for six months.

Lord: Lords have only two ways in which they can be promoted.  The first, is to join the Sith Council.  In order to join the Sith Council, the Lord must be recommended by a current Council Member, and be accepted into the Sith Council by a unanimous vote.  Other than this, Lords can not be promoted unless the current Dark Lord steps down from his position. If this were to take place, the Dark Lord would name a successor.



Q:  What/Where are the training groups?

The training groups are their own forums, and they are used specifically to train members.  However, they can only be seen once you are a member of the training group.  This keeps the forum from becoming overly cluttered.  It also keeps your training private from those who are not in the same training group as you are.
