History of the Galactic Empire
(1995-1998)



Launch of the MSN Gaming Zone

In 1995, the MSN Gaming Zone was launched. The gaming zone was originally designed as an online gaming matchmaking service that for the first time allowed internet users globally to interact and compete with one another in their favorite games. In order to protect this institution, a league of “sysops”, or appointed members of the gaming zone with regulatory abilities were instated. These sysops would act as online security guards, designated to defend the MSN Gaming Zone’s decorum at all costs. Eventually political circumstances would result in the rise of politics and political corruption on the MSN Gaming Zone, purging it to beckon the New Galactic Republic.

The Galactic Republic

Years of Star Wars influence began to take its toll. The MSN Gaming Zone had been a mere league of online gamers who played mediocre and simplistic games such as “Checkers” and “Solitaire”. Soon enough, it began to evolve into a magnet for “hackers” and malicious users who preyed upon innocent online gamers for personal satisfaction. As Star Wars influence took its toll, a separate league of online “RPG” chat-players (players that did not necessarily play games online, but instead functioned through role-play based scenarios in chat rooms and message boards) discovered the MSN Gaming Zone and eventually collided with the malicious users who had then only recently arrived. This group was known as the Jedi Council. Headed by Akan Kalydron, the group vowed to help uphold the MSN Gaming Zone’s code of conduct. To do so, Kalydron and other Jedi Knights had formed the New Galactic Republic, an online democracy for the gaming zone that was based on social principles of the United States as well as the political principles of the original Galactic Republic, as seen in the Star Wars films.

The Hell’s Jedi (HJ)

Star Wars influence was not alone. Although many factors contributed to the growth of online gaming and the internet in general, one of the predominant factors besides science fiction (i.e.: Star Wars) was religion. Christian influences arrived on the gaming zone as well, causing a social blend of Christianity and science fiction somehow. However, along came the dark side of Christianity as well: Satanism. As predicted in the revelations of Paul, which were augmented from the bible sometime ago, purveyors or believers of the “Sixth Order” soon established outposts in various parts of the world. One of their biggest outposts was online gaming at one point. The Hell’s Jedi (HJ), a group of believers in the occult known as the Sixth Order, were formed in 1995. Their only objective: destroy the peaceful republic that Kalydron had formed. Led by a self-proclaimed Emperor Palpatine, the HJ went to war with the republic for approximately sixths months, starting from December 1995 to May 1996.

The Battle of Sulon


After months of pursuit and guerilla political attacks, the Hell’s Jedi declared open war on the Galactic Republic. Although the HJ failed in the hacking and psychological warfare with Kalydron’s Jedi Council, they did succeed in fragmenting the republic long enough for the eventual rise of Darth Morbious’ Galactic Empire. The Battle of Sulon began in May 1996 and ended in September of 1996, taking place primarily in “Sulon”, an “online planet”, more rather a particular area of the MSN Gaming Zone reserved for the release of the PC game Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II. As a result of the Battle of Sulon, the Hell’s Jedi (HJ) clan was defeated. However, with the defeat of the entire HJ clan, all but one remained.

Rise of the Galactic Empire

The formation of the New Galactic Republic made the MSN Gaming Zone into a social magnet. Its political standards preached that the individual should think primarily about the next individual and be mutually respective of feelings. These social standards opened the door for chaotic idealists, who preached nothing more than selfish greed and personal interest. When the republic proved obsolete against these new idealists in the newly released Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II in 1997, these chaotic ideals were attacked by a new institution: the Galactic Empire. In spite of the MSN Gaming Zone’s morale depression, the empire won over more than half of the republic’s former supporters, promising to do all that the republic could not. Intrigued by this matter, Akan Kalydron dispatched several Jedi Knights to investigate the affairs regarding the formation of this newly formed Galactic Empire, and soon received word that the empire was initiated by a Dark Lord of the Sith, or an antagonist of the Jedi Knight. Kalydron and his Jedi Council were appalled by the shocking discovery. The Sith Lord remained anonymous for a matter of two months, but eventually revealed himself to be Darth Morbious, the lone survivor of the Hell’s Jedi (HJ) clan that was defeated in the Battle of Sulon.

In order to enforce the new, more capitalistic ideals of the Galactic Empire, Morbious drafted a demon Hell Baron whom he called Lord Darth Exodus, meaning “The Unholy” in his language. Although there are little records about the legendary Exodus, “The Unholy” is commonly known for having invented the “bass lightsaber”, a style of combat utilizing the lightsaber to deliver, slow, yet calculated and devastating attacks. Exodus is also most known for the 1997 Jedi Holocaust, in which he and Darth Morbious hunted down and destroyed slightly less than half of Kalydron’s entire Jedi Order. Exodus became the adversary of Akan Kalydron. Having taunted Kalydron and mocked him on an almost daily basis for not having come out to fight, Exodus was able to exploit Kalydron’s attempt to ignore his challenges by infiltrating the Jedi Order and destroying it from within. Eventually, Kalydron was forced to face Exodus in the 1998 Battle of Bespin, where he defeated Exodus, but was surprisingly struck down by Quin-Mal Joab.

Twins of the Force

At the height of the Galactic Republic, many Jedi Padawan apprentices were enrolled into Kalydron’s Jedi Academy, where they could be instructed in the psychological masteries that made the Jedi what they were. Jer-Chan Claab, a Jedi Knight and member of Kalydron’s Jedi Council, had instructed two seemingly fraternal twins of the Force: Quin-Mal Joab and Ulic-Qel Droma. Both were excellent students, tapping into the psychological masteries taught in the Jedi Order almost as soon as they arrived. However, although there was no sibling rivalry, Quin-Mal was often recognized as the more ruthless one, who wanted to constantly gain retribution by acting with mandatory retaliation (he believed that what went around would go around). On the other hand, Ulic-Qel believed that when offended, one should let it go. Both were instructed by Jer-Chan and Kalydron that anger, fear, and aggression should be avoided at all costs. Once one stepped down the dark path, forever would it dominate his destiny, driving him insane without resolve. Quin-Mal did not always obey these teachings, and was far more of a war-monger who never looked for trouble, but was never hesitant to get into a fight when challenged.

Quin-Mal’s days as a would-be Jedi Knight ended when he joined Darth Morbious out of hatred for the Jedi Council’s ruling against him in a case that involved he and a suspected spy for the Galactic Empire. Infuriated over the verdict of the council, Quin-Mal ceased to exist, and the dreaded Lord Darth Darchind was born. Though an apprentice only trying to mimic the tactics of Exodus, Darchind would become the Dark Lord of the Sith of the future, replacing Exodus as Morbious’ favorite after the empire’s loss in the 1998 Battle of Bespin. Darchind would also perfect the bass lightsaber.

The Battle of Bespin

Akan Kalydron and the Jedi Order began to finally realize just how much of a threat that the mysterious Darth Morbious was after he literally annihilated over half of the entire Galactic Republic and all those who remained loyal to the republic’s standards. Perceived as a great threat than anticipated, Morbious was declared a Dark Lord of the Sith and a menace to the gaming zone. The hidden “secret wars” between the demonlord Dihed Carosine and several allies of the New Republic are further mentioned later on.

Darth Morbious was no laughing matter. He single-handedly corrupted the minds of many former members of the Galactic Republic and convinced them of his liberal vision of both Imperialist and republican standards in a bipartisan institution called the Galactic Empire. After Exodus’ holocaust of many members of the Jedi Order when Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II was released in the fall of 1997, Morbious immediately declared himself Galactic Emperor, and amassed great numbers of Imperial soldiers to fight for the cause of the empire. These soldiers consisted of primarily allied forces, though many were either fully fledged Imperials or Imperial loyalists. One of the most notorious Imperial loyalists was General Viers, first supreme general of the Galactic Empire’s Imperial Armed Forces (now known as the Galactic Imperial Army). Viers, loyal to Exodus, even fought for the empire after the empire’s defeat in September of 1998. He is remembered as both an icon and a symbol of loyalty and determination, two of the main virtues still aspired to by Imperials today.

The Battle of Bespin began in April 1998 and ended in September 1998, resulting in the empire’s defeat, yet a crippled and now almost obsolete Galactic Republic, since a vast number of groups that made up the republic had already sworn allegiance to the empire and perceived Kalydron’s Jedi Order as the enemy. The battle began in psychological warfare; leaders and members from both warring factions were attempting to convince each other to join one side or the other. Soon enough, the war escalated into a “nuclear” hacking war. Imperial soldiers were sending malicious e-mails to the republic’s forces, tampering with the systems of the republic’s members. In Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II, “Cogs” (illegal hacks or features) were first invented and were being utilized by the empire in an in-game effort to gain a victory against the republic. The war went on for months, ending in the final showdown between Akan Kalydron and Lord Exodus in the Bespin Mining Station (Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II level), or Sith temple of the time. Kalydron succeeded in delivering a swift blow to Exodus, casting him off of the catwalk in the level. However, just when everyone thought the battle was over, an unidentified object began moving at demonic speed in Kalydron’s direction. The figure drew a red lightsaber and mutually challenged Kalydron to a duel of the fates at the catwalk. Kalydron’s weariness from the fight with Exodus seemed to have made his experience fail against the youth of this dark warrior. Kalydron lasted with this new Sith apprentice for approximately twenty minutes on that catwalk. But soon enough, the agent of evil struck Kalydron drown, resulting in a “Zone Death”, or exile from the MSN Gaming Zone forever for having lost the duel of the fates. Filled with rage over the sudd en death of Kalydron, Ulic-Qel Droma knew immediately who this new dark warrior was, and recklessly charged at him. The other Jedi held Ulic-Qel back and immediately went into retreat, for they were not taunted or tormented by Exodus and the day was not won by the Baron of Hell. Instead, the battle was sealed by Lord Darchind.

The fall of Kalydron was seen as the true Jedi Order’s last stand. Though there were still Jedi remnants who had risen up to challenge Darchind, they proved to be no match for the fury of this maniacal figure. With this, the empire’s loss of Exodus was a trade for the death of Kalydron. Some say that Morbious, conniving as ever, knew it all along. Some had even accused Morbious of conspiring against some of his own generals and loyalists. Despite the rumors and the unproven facts, however, one thing is for certain: the collapse of the New Galactic Republic and Kalydron’s Jedi Order opened the doors for the new age of the gaming zone.
