    Hello everybody, this is bburditt your not-so-friendly draft commissioner.

    Firstly, allow me to pay tribute to Darth-Horax, the exalted creator of the Draft series. He had an unfortunate accident a couple drafts ago, involving a job and a firewall. Although rumor has it that he will be returning from time to time, having been promoted to a new position, that brings with it, a firewall lift.

    As you all no doubt know, the previous 8 drafts were won by GenMadine (2 wins), Qui-Gon-Jinn2, Corran10584, Gaeri, Saber_Leader, Ghost_Jedi and Suzuki_Akira.

    Again, as you all no doubt know, this draft had a little 3 week hiatus, so that the mods, and respected and veteran draft participants could hold a little discussion on the future of the now world-renown draft series.

    Allow me a little bit of time to run by the new thread rules, explain some of the unclear rules, and then give you all a run-down as to how this installment will be played, and also give a brief explanation of how the game actually works.

    Here are the new thread rules.


    • VIP / Colors / Titles: Per the VIP rules and guidelines outlined here, the ONLY person able to get colors / VIP status / a title from the Draft will be the winner. That will last a period of one week. Unfortunately, the Commish / Leaders / Judges will not be allowed VIP status or even a title. You are encouraged to put this information in your sig. The winner will also get to use the VIP Only "Jedi Draft Winner" icon for the week.


    • Only one Draft thread at a time. Because these will now be official forum games, Stryphe and I will allow one Draft thread at a time. This does not appear to be an immediate problem as the Starfighter Draft is on a bit of an hiatus. If and when the SFD returns to activity, we can consider having two at a time if the pace of the SFD becomes a problem.


    • Two week gap between Drafts. After two weeks the new thread can be started for any new planning that needs to happen for the next draft.


    • Forum Mods retain right to pull Commish. If this is to be a forum game, Strilo and Darth-Stryphe retain the right to pull the Commish should he/she be misbehaving to an unacceptable level. This is not something they would do lightly nor should they have to do it at all. Only worst case scenario here.


    • Authority to prevent anyone from playing one or more editions of the draft is left solely to the discretion of the forum mods.


    • Mods will do a sock check on all GMs and judges.


    • Socializing and chatting off topic is allowed in moderation, provided it conforms to all the rules of the forum. (No politics, discussing films and not fans, no flaming/spamming/trolling, etc...)



    To be clear, this means that the Jedi Draft is now an official Star Wars Community forum game. It is also currently the only SWC game to offer a chance at winning some colours for a week.

    In regards to the Only one Draft thread at a time, this would mean that while the Jedi Draft is going on, the Starfighter Draft, would have to be on hold until the Jedi Draft is done, and vice-versa.

    To clear up any issue you all probably have with this, these rules are only a test. I know that the SFD can run slow, and if it runs too slow so that the Jedi Draft would have to be on hold for months, then that rule will be overruled. Corran10584, creator of SFD, has been thinking about moving the SFD to the EUC anyways.


    Now that the administrative stuff has been mentioned, lets move on to an explanation of how to play this game, and a description of the newly decided game rules, for those who already know how to play.

    Firstly, there are three different types of participants to the draft. There is one commissioner, and for this current installment, that just so happens to be me. There are three judges, they will be the ones who will decide the outcome of all the matches. The matches will be explained in detail further in this post. And lastly, there will be sixteen General M/>/>/>

    Asajj Ventress < Saesee Tiin

    jacen> asajj ventress

    Saesee Tiin > Lord Hoth

    The Brooklyn Jedi < Where?s My Lightsaber? (w/ Darth Maul)

    Kyle Katarn > Hoth

    those are just a few

    Asajj Ventress < Saesee Tiin

    Voted other way.

    jacen> asajj ventress

    I voted the other way (unless that's your point).

    Saesee Tiin > Lord Hoth

    I'll look into this.

    The Brooklyn Jedi < Where?s My Lightsaber? (w/ Darth Maul)

    I stand by this decision, because of the dead weight in the back of TBJ.

    Kyle Katarn > Hoth

    I stand by this, due to the experience, skill, and intangibles edge that KK has.

    Sure, Jim.

    Can we get a ruling from the commish about whether Jaden Korr and/or Revan's eligibility? This could affect my and others' plans.

    I think it was decided they wont be involved because they are video game RPG characters, so that means there are thousands of verisons of them.

    The ruling about Revan will not come from the Commish. It comes from Stryphe and myself. He will be sitting this draft out.
