KNIGHTS OF THE WHITE TOWER - JEDI CODE
Its important to note that the following Jedi Code is the tradition passed down among the Knights of the White Tower. And the Jedi of the White Tower are somewhat isolated from the Greater Jedi Order based on the capital city of the Galactic Republic on Coruscant. For the Jedi Code of the Greater Order, to to page 176 of the d20 Star Wars core rulebook.
THE JEDI CODE
There is no emotion - there is peace.
There is no ignorance - there is knowledge.
There is no passion - there is serenity.
There is no death - there is the Force.
A Jedi must have the deepest commitment, the most serious mind.
To use the Force, the Jedi must remain at harmony with it. To act in dissonance depletes his power.
The Force is created and sustained by life. The Jedi acts to preserve life. To kill is wrong.
Yet it is often necessary to kill. The Jedi may kill in self-defense, or the defense of others. He may kill if, by doing so, he preserves the existance of life.
But he must know, always, that killing is wrong. When he kills, he commits a crime against the Force. Through he may know that he does so for the greater good, and the greater good justifies his act, he also knows that the death remains a stain upon his spirit.
The Jedi does not act for personal gain, of wealth or of power. He acts to gain knowledge; to sustain freedom, life and learning; to defeat those who would impose tyranny, death, and ignorance.
Sometimes, wealth or power is needed to achieve the Jedi's goals. Money is required for the purchase of goods; power is required to obtain the help of others. To achieve his goals, a Jedi may obtain wealth or power, but he is not interested in it for its own sake, and will surrender it once his goals are achieved.
A Jedi never acts from hatred, anger, fear or aggression. A Jedi must act when he is calm, at peace with the Force. To act from anger is to court the Dark Side, to risk everything for which the Jedi stands.
It is a strict set of rules. There are no grey-areas for a Jedi, only the light of life and the darkness of evil and selfishness. Just one step from the true path can lead a Jedi to the Dark Side of the Force.
