Pretty sure I know the answer to this one but just want to be sure. The rules say a faction name must be 'original'. My question is can a faction name be an offshoot of an existing faction without their permission. For example would someone be able to create for instance 'Dark Jedi' as another Sith organization even though the Jedi faction would likely not appreciate 'their' name.
Obviously the history would reflect why the faction is named as such but is this allowed?
Sadly, SWC has no rules governing what you can and can't use as names, as long as it isn't directly in use by another group. We also have a lot of people who lack any kind of decency and respect, so apparently anything's fair game.
You might get in trouble for something like "The Real Galactic Empire", but even then I have to be dubious, given some things that have been allowed.
"May the Grace of Ara go with you, and His Vengeance be wrought upon your enemies."
Ahh gotcha. Thanks for the answers guys. The name that I'm considering shouldn't be a problem then as it distinguishes itself from the 'main' faction and it has a EU background. (So I ain't just pullin stuff from my other furry round side.)
