The Language

As part of the immersive environment that Shadowclan offers we have unique language guidelines. For this branch there are two different standards for grouping with clan members and non-clan members.

Clan Members:  Usage of the Sith language is required.  The clan, as a sign of respect for their traditions and unity, only speak in Sith to each other.

Non Clan Members:  The cult member can speak in Sith or Galactic Basic to non clan members.  Galactic Basic is represented by English in The Old Republic universe.  However, the character is still expected to be in-character at all times.  


For example,  lol or using numbers such as ‘+4 End’ are not to be used. Level numbers are not used in public or saying I did 5000 damage either.

Ask yourself ‘What would a person in this universe say?’  Instead of saying they did a numerical representation of damage they would probably say they ‘cut them in half’ or ‘blew them to pieces’.  Do that instead.  If you need to discuss a number use tell for that.  

Real life incidents and people do not exist in the Old Republic universe.  Do not refer to them.


Infractions of the role play and language policy will lead to a warning on the first offense and removal from the guild on further offenses.  Shadowclan has always provided immersive role play and we take this seriously.

Please note, we understand occasional accidents will happen, and real language will slip out, we are not looking to issue warnings on those typs of infractions. It is when players are having their Shadowclan characters carry on full conversations with others and break these guidelines is when infractions will be issued.
