Yeah I'm pretty sure my IP journal is trash, hehe. Is Jestor still around?

I think he pops in quietly once in a while, but he's not an active presence

His focus shifted to family, which is by no means a bad thing.

I hear that. So did he go and have a bunch of kids or something?

Having found your journal, I’m sorry to tell you that you will forsure have to do the ip again brother man. Lots has changed in the past ten years. Not only has every lesson changed, but what’s expected from each lesson. Pretty much every lesson now has atleast a 500 word requirement and several are 750 words. Our training has got way more in-depth than it was it was back then. I’d also take a peek at our rules and policies as I’m sure most of them have changed in a very dramatic way.

Reguardless we are happy to have you back and hope you will decide to stay.

It means that their training falls under either jestor, or one that has trained under jestor, in this case river trained under edan, whom trained under jestor... it's a training lineage...

Haven't seen you around in some time....

And the house your referring too is how apprentices and knights trace their lineage. In my case I’m house of Orion. Meaning alexandre Orion trained my Masters masters master…..in rivers case, her lineage can be traced back to jestor

docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1GcaYYja3...7Jo/edit?usp=sharing

That is a link to the totjo legacy chart

Zero, I have taken notice that dear Jestor is listed with white letters in the Constellations tab indicating he has given up, but in his own house his name appears black as if he is around and doing his Jestor thingy here at the Temple.. :whistle: Could it be possible that one of the two names might need a paint brush, or am I missing some feature of this really awesome sheet? (Buy the way, it does look very awesome and sorted out!) :)

Hello Whyte Horse,

It's been a while. I hope you have been well, your current situation considered.
A lot has changed since you were last here. The IP has less to do with the Star Wars mythos and more to do with personal development. In fact, just about anything Star Wars has been stricken from just about all the training. They might as well call it Temple of the Personal development and book report order. LOL :lol:

All joking aside, many of those that were here are not any more. I try to log in at least once a week; but, sadly most of the old crew has moved on. The new people are have new ideas and are trying new things so a lot has changed.

You were a member before and the forums were set up differently, hence why you could post. You'll probably have to resubmit/submit application (if they even still do that) and become a member again.

I talk with Jestor more on the phone than I do here. He's good. ;)

The house thing was something brought up a long time ago but we shot it down in council to avoid cliques from forming. The new guys like cliques I guess so it got instituted. :P No, in all seriousness, I believe it is because they are less focused on the living moment and more into the history of, or where we come from.

It seems a lot of the conversations happen on Discord now. I believe you have to get invited or permission to join. Roz would be a good one to PM about that.

If you have any more questions I'll be happy to help in any way I can :)
