*meditates* Inner peace… Inner peace… Inner peace… *grooves along to Static-X while meditating, because why not?*
Even though the Jedi were wiped out once, there are those that still follow the Light Side of the Force. They’re those that use the Force for knowledge and clarity, meditation and peaceful resolution to issues. If you’re wanting to play that type of character in the Star Wars RPG, Fantasy Flight Games has a sourcebook that should interest you. It’s called Disciples of Harmony.

From the announcement:

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Disciples of Harmony, an all-new sourcebook for Consular characters in the Star Wars™: Force and Destiny™ roleplaying game!

The rise of the Empire and the absence of the Jedi Order may have caused the Jedi Knights to fade into the ashes of history, but there are still those who know the truth, who refuse to allow the Jedi to become the stuff of legend and myth.Disciples of Harmony is a sourcebook for Consular characters in Star Wars: Force and Destiny, offering players new insights into the path of the Consular, introducing three new specializations, and making available new equipment and Force powers.

The path of the Consular is one of balance, which can lead to difficult choices in more traditional, combat-oriented campaigns. Disciples of Harmony offers Game Masters multiple avenues to incorporate their Consular characters into the adventure without disrupting their dedication to balance and the preservation of life. This supplemental sourcebook includes instructions for establishing mentors and practitioners of alternative Force traditions as well as diplomatic scenarios and adventure hooks that can flesh out a campaign setting and expand it into the wider Star Wars galaxy.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    Ahh, the Star Wars/MLP crossover everyone has been waiting for?

    • Chad_Caughmann

      Sorry, what is MLP?

      • My Little Pony.

      • Hawkeyefan

        My Little Pony, I think they are sometimes referred to as Guardians of Harmony.

        • Chad_Caughmann

          I had no idea. Is My Little Pony well-known enough within the context of “this” hobby to warrant an acronym, rather than spelling it out?

          • Hawkeyefan

            Maybe? There was an article about a game here not too incredibly long ago, and there have been other games. Not to mention some things like it are hard to escape from, at least in the US.

          • Chad_Caughmann

            I’m aware of My Little Pony, and it’s resurgence in recent years. It’s just that it isn’t part of this hobby in any meaningful way, and is not mainstream enough that using an acronym outside of the context for it seems like it would be counter-productive to the goal of communication.

          • Hawkeyefan

            *shrugs* Other people seemed to understand. And it was a stupid joke about the wording of the subtitle, I never really intended to have discussions about it as I do not honestly believe that it is a crossover book.

          • This is kinda reminding me of a time in grad school where, during discussion, I made a small joke like that (I wasn’t interrupting or anything. I just added it at the end of a point I was making) and my professor basically stopped the class and wanted further explanation of why I felt that way (and it wasn’t an off-color joke by any stretch of the imagination. But he obviously felt it was that part that needed expanding, as opposed to the rest of what I’d said as part of the discussion).

          • Hawkeyefan

            Yeah, I was really not expecting this, more so if anything people calling me out for the implication of those two things crossing over.

          • Chad_Caughmann

            Sorry if I sound negative about all this…it basically reminded me of a time several years ago when a bunch of people on a miniatures forum thought it was “cool” to use a bunch of video game slang (and were stubborn about it), and it was done so at the expense of communication clarity. It caused a bunch of strife on said website (and NO, it was not just with me…lots of people were annoyed by it).

            So, nowadays, when I see people use slang (and by extension, acronyms) from outside the context of the discussion (this hobby)…I just think – wouldn’t it be easier to use the full wording???

            And yes, DB, I’m fully aware Google exists. You don’t have to use the passive-aggressive “let me google that for you” website. The frustrating thing about lots of acronyms is that you can frequently get 100 different results for the same set of letters, so it’s not always so straight forward as you would think.

          • DB

            Not so much passive-aggressive as it is teasing, in this case. Passive aggressively, I suppose.

            Anyway, the Pony thing gets stuck in your brain when you have or deal with children regularly. It’s unavoidable, kinda like Sesame Street…which should never use its acronym.

            There’s also Google
