READ ME FIRST: Welcome to EmpireDidNothingWrong!

Welcome, Imperial citizen!

Who are we?

Provocatively named, EmpireDidNothingWrong (adding "The" exceeds Reddit's maximum subreddit name length!) or EDNW is a Star Wars fan community centered around the question, "What if we don't take 'the evil Galactic Empire' at face value?" We treat the events of Star Wars canon as being historical as far as they go, but having been presented to craft a particular narrative—in a word, they are anti-Imperial/pro-Rebel propaganda.

The Empire, and its predecessor Republic, is a galaxy-spanning society comprised of an enormous variety of people and cultures, all with wildly diverse perspectives. To distill it into simple questions of "good" and "evil"—especially specific acts undertaken by specific individuals—is reductive in the extreme. Once one starts to examine that galaxy far, far away—especially when employing parallels to remarkably and disturbingly similar events in our own history and even taking place today—it becomes a great deal more difficult to dismiss the Empire as "evil" and declare the Rebels as "good".

Who are we not?

In part because of our name and in part because of assumptions many carry with them into the community, we tend to be classified as something other than we are. Nevertheless, we do not claim nor aspire to be or do any of the following:

  • Espouse a particular modern/terrestrial political worldview. We require that people leave their personal politics out of the community.
  • Endorse every single act undertaken by every single individual that could be identified as Imperial.
  • A roleplaying subreddit. We recognize that many in our community enjoy roleplaying, though, and maintain a month roleplaying post for that purpose.
  • A meme subreddit. Please see /r/OTMemes, /r/PrequelMemes, and many other communities dedicated to this.
  • A joke subreddit
  • An advertising subreddit
  • A general Star Wars subreddit.
  • An anti-Jedi/anti-Rebel/anti-Republic subreddit. While some of this is intrinsic to being pro-Imperial, it's not part of our purpose.
  • A pro-Sith subreddit. The Empire is not the Sith, even though the Emperor himself identified as one.
  • A pro-First Order subreddit. The First Order is an offshoot of the Empire, but is not itself the Empire.

What do we do here?

Our primary purpose is to provide a forum for discussing the actions and operations of the Empire and its members through a lens other than "Empire bad, Rebels good."

Because the current body of Star Wars canon is much smaller than it used to be in the wake of the acquisition of Lucasfilm by Disney, many of those conversations have already been examined. The release of new Star Wars media is an exciting time for us, since it gives us new opportunities to explore previously unrevealed aspects of the Empire.

During the fallow periods, we turn to celebrating the Empire in general. This largely takes the form of sharing media pertaining to our individual collections of Imperial merch or showcasing artwork with an Imperial theme to it.

What are our rules?

See Rules. Posting in our community comes with the assumption that you have read these rules.

How come...?

Answers to many common topics can be found in our FAQ.

The Monthly RP Mega-Thread #31

Right folks, you now know the drill this is the months new RP thread. So same as before, post all RP content to this thread. Those posts which have an image attached are free to be submitted separate from this sticky post.

This is last months RP thread!

This is the Archive Link for all previous RP Threads

If you have any confusion on the RP threads the FAQ wiki guide on the sidebar has been updated with information. If you have further questions feel free to message the mods or myself and can give an answer quickly enough I hope.

If you're introducing a character, perhaps please post it as a reply to the sticky comment found below posted by myself. This means people looking for plots can minimize the characters to avoid having to scroll forever. Any new RP post submitted text only and not in this sticky will be locked and a link back to here posted on it. Now go and support the Empire people, bring glory and honour to the people of the galaxy!

Please can we have a sense of logic when it comes to RP, it's fine to RP out some outlandish concepts but do so in respect for other people roleplaying as well. So here is some things to keep in mind when Roleplaying.

  • Do not takeover someone else's RP, contact them before hand if you wish to get heavily involved with their RP.

  • Keep some logical sense with your RP, the setting we find ourselves in a lot on this subreddit with RP is post-Endor. The Empire as this stage is in a decline (heresy to write that) and things are in disarray. Pulling entire fleets out of your story driven "ass" is really frowned upon and just isn't sporting. The Kuat shipyards are still active and so there is grounds to bring some new capital ships out for fun but be within reason.

  • Stick to your operations, if you're engaged in an operation with other people take that into account. Don't suddenly be in another one doing an entirely different thing because then it causes some issues in knowing what your character is actually doing.

If you're looking for more Imperial roleplay then visit this sub as a first point of call. /r/swdarktimes

Finally joining the Empire today by submitting to the book. Unfortunately it is not a new one and has been scribbled in by REBEL SCUM!

Official symbol of our glorious Empire

I’m about to get a tattoo of the seal and symbol of our glorious Empire. But as I began to research there appears to be a lot of unsanctioned imitators of our glorious symbol. So much so that I can’t seem to find an official version to give the tattoo artist. Mostly in dealing with how thick the rings are and what size the spokes are. Which version is the true version so I can have my loyalty to the Empire permanently inked on my body?
