Who are we?
Old Republic Journals grew out of the Early Years Updates list. As we went along, characters sort of took on a life of their own and began to play. Master Tavaris created ORJ as a place to let those characters grow and interact.
Where are we currently?
Most Jedi noted are on Coruscant at the moment, awaiting new assignments.
Where are we in the timeline?
Obi-Wan Kenobi is 18 years old. We went AU from the time he was 16. In our universe, Xanatos DuCruet survived his final confrontation with Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan and has been known to attack the Jedi.
In the past two years, many Jedi have left Coruscant, in preparation for a dark time they feel is coming. The others remain as they always have, as a force in the galaxy for peace.
What are our beliefs?
As certain things did not come to light until later in the prequels, the Jedi of the ORJ do permit life-bonds and joinings between Jedi, but these instances are extremely rare. Beyond that, these are the Jedi as they were in the prequels and in the Jedi Apprentice series of books.
