SW:HOTOR is set in the Old Republic era of Star Wars, where Jedi and Sith alike roam the galaxy. In the year 3960BBY, where we focus our story, the Jedi Civil War is just about to take place, with characters such as Darth Revan and Darth Malak from SW:TOR as background characters. Our story will focus on one particular aspect/area of the SW universe during this time, meaning canon characters will get nothing but a passing mention. This allows us to create our own canon.

In contrast to other sims out there, our timeline and universe situation allows players to create Jedi or Sith characters. There are, however, some restrictions.

Players are expected to follow the rules and regulations of both the sim and 22nd Fleet at all times, both in character and out of character. By continuing, you affirm that you will sim in a proper and adequate manner. Members who choose to make ultra short posts, post very infrequently, or post posts with explicit content (above PG-16) will be removed immediately, and by continuing, you agree to this. In addition, in compliance with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we do not accept players under the age of 16. Any players found to be under the age of 16 will be immediately removed without question. By agreeing to these terms, you are also saying that you are above the age of 16.
