The Dark Empire is a costuming home for fans of the dark side of the force. We welcome custom and canon Sith, Dark Jedi, and Grey Jedi. Other dark side-affiliated custom and canon costumes accepted include force users and non-force users such as Sith Troopers, Sith Inquisitors, Imperial Agents, and Non-Mandalorian Bounty Hunters and Pirates / Smugglers. These costumes must represent Sith-affiliated characters from any of the STAR WARS movies, or from any era within the Expanded Universe including books, games, comics, and animated series.
The Spire of the Storm is the state of Florida group within the Yavin 4 Temple.
The purpose of The Dark Empire is to promote multi-generational fandom and appreciation of STAR WARS through acts of charity, and to encourage creative costuming as custom characters and canon characters representing the “dark side” of the Star Wars universe.
Creative writing is also encouraged, in the form of short fanfiction which can be shared on our forums and submitted for narration consideration on our podcast. The Dark Empire is, however, primarily a costuming organization devoted to celebrating the Star Wars saga. We are not a role-playing site.
