Anyone know where to find the application for a temple? I can't find it anywhere. I'd like to get us official.

Thanks. I got the bright idea to message Rick from freedom, since he is on the council. He directed me to where I need to get the application.

It's awesome ("Coolsville" as Rick says) that you are forming a temple! I apologize for making you wait; I've been without consistent internet access for awhile.

You have a strong roster of Jedi and more than enough to start a temple. I have two concerns about your application. One is the name. For those unfamiliar with the term Teräs Käsi, such as myself, Wookiepedia is the first stop. There I learned that "The Followers of Palawa created Teräs Käsi solely to defeat Jedi," that it was used by clone assassins, and that it was used by Darth Maul. In other words, it seems very strong in the Dark Side and an inherently anti-Jedi discipline.

Yet in the end, Teräs Käsi is a martial art, regardless of its origins. So whether it is interpreted as Light Side or Dark Side falls to the logo, which is my second concern. Your logo depicts a steel hand in front of a black shield with crossed sabers beneath it, which is explained as "Plo Koon and Darth Maul both were users of Teras Kasi and lightsabers." Again, those unfamiliar with the Teräs Käsi will be guided by your logo. An iron fist over a black shield and crossed sabers emphasizes darkness and fighting rather than peace, knowledge, and serenity.

Given the above concerns, I ask you to redo your logo to emphasize these three tenets of the Jedi code, clearly indicating to others that your Jedi temple stands for the Light Side of the force and embraces the Jedi code. I do not ask this lightly, as I know how much effort and energy goes into the formation of a temple. Given the strength of your roster I have no doubt that Terrapin Base will host a powerful temple.

The main problem is that many of us are not artistic. The new logo may be stick figures. Laughing

We'll get working on it and see what we can come up with.

So basically if we re-do the logo, we can keep the name right?

I think maybe a Rodian Jedi floating cross-legged in meditation while levitating his/her lightsaber between their hands would make a good logo. Perhaps the ribbon encircling the outside of the logo. I haven't been able to jot down a sketch, but I thought about it at work today.

The name is walking a fine line but hey, the national anthem used to be a drinking song too. It is all in the delivery. It is a package deal. I cannot definitely approve the name until the logo is there too. You are not required to have a logo in order to form a temple, but given the concerns outlined above i would not approve the name because of its anti jedi origins. However with the softening effect of a logo that emphasizes peace, knowledge, serenity then i could see it. The bottom line here is good for you or forming a temple. If you get some logo ideas together it is possible that i or someone else could help with the artistic side.
