Memento Mori

Philosophy, Sithism
{ Below are excerpts from Sith Academy: Dark Side Philosophy and Book of the Black Sun} Memento Mori The Dark Side disciple should keep certain symbols at hand—black suns, skulls, black robes, etc.—as reminders that he will die. Indeed, these symbols are a reminder that everything in existence—ourselves, our friends and families, our tribes, our races, our civilizations, our species, our planet, our sun, our galaxy, our entire universe—is doomed to destruction. As the ancient Chinese sages said, when asked for a saying that is true in all times and places: “this, too, shall pass”. Nothing in this world is eternal. The fate of everything is Darkness. Nothing can escape its destiny in the Void of the Black Sun. Unlike the modern Lightsider who lives in denial and mortal fear…

Black Sunnism, Philosophy
{This is an excerpt from Book of the Black Sun, by the Dark Lords.} Black Sunnism entails the metaphysical rejection of the White Sunlit world of matter—a radical notion in this age, but one which it holds in common with many traditional religions and philosophies. Christianity and Islam teach that the true, eternal life is not of this world, which is a place of testing, sin and Satan’s traps; Buddhism teaches that the “three marks of existence” are anicca (impermanence), dukkha (suffering) and anatta (non-self); Hinduism and Buddhism both teach that the goal of life is to become liberated from the cycle of reincarnation (samsara) and reach a state of moksha (enlightenment) which lies beyond material incarnation; Gnostics believe that the material world is an evil realm ruled by the…

One Empire, One Brotherhood

{This is an excerpt from Black Ninja Handbook, by the Dark Lords.} One Empire, One Brotherhood Historically, the Ninja of Iga and Koka Provinces developed a concept they called Ichigun Ichimi—One District, One Band. This became the motto of the loose-knit brotherhood of Ninja clans that existed there, in the historical heartland of the Ninja. Natori Masatake explains this idea in the Shoninki: Later, the people from Koka, next to Iga, followed this path of ninjutsu and having made the oath of Ichigun Ichimi, the friendship oath of “one district and one band,” joining the people together. They went out expansively to various provinces to utilize their skills. Thus, being universally recognized as the premier shinobi, they exchanged a firm written form of oath, which says “If I come to…

The Nine Pillars of Sithism

{ This is an excerpt from Book One of Sith Academy: Acolyte Training. } Sithism is the dark side philosophy and path of power followed by the Sith. In Darkspeech we call it Zith-Zovrâd (Sith Philosophy) or Zithodûn (Sithism). Below are the nine Pillars, or fundamental precepts, of this philosophy. The Primacy of Power “What is good? All that heightens the feeling of power, the Will to Power, power itself in man. What is bad? All that proceeds from weakness. What is happiness? The feeling that power increases—that a resistance is overcome.” This belief in the primacy of power (râkâ) is the Diamond Rule of Sithism. The Tao of Darwin Darwinian evolution is the central fact of life on this planet. From the simplest microbes to the most complex intelligent life…

Sensing Disturbances in the Force

The Force
{ This is an excerpt from Book Three of Sith Academy: Acolyte Training. } The Force can be viewed as a “field of belief” or “collective consciousness” that connects the minds of all living things. Any thought or action creates ripples in this field, which are transmitted through it and can then be sensed and interpreted by Force-sensitives. The more psychically powerful the event, the stronger the ripple, and the greater the distance away in space and time the event can be sensed. Some individuals are extraordinarily tuned in to this field of Force, allowing them to sense changes on a grand scale in the manner of a prophet or a psychic. For example, the 19th century philosopher Nietzsche had a prophetic sense of the world's Force trajectory when he…
