The SITH Medallion - Soon....
« on: July 02, 2013, 03:07:02 PM »
Hello All,

Just a teaser for the SITH Medallion that I will be releasing in a few weeks...

Peace is a lie, there is only PASSION.
Through passion, I gain STRENGTH.
Through strength, I gain POWER.
Through power, I gain VICTORY.
Through victory, My Chains Are Broken.
THE FORCE shall set me FREE.

Edge engraving:
- GIVE IN TO YOUR ANGER - SKILL - FLESH - REVELATION - RETRIBUTION - ASCENSION
- Individually numbered

A symbol sacred to the SITH - in direct contrast to the Jedi Symbol, the SITH Symbol is recessed and surrounded by...  to evoke the image of ancient runic carvings from the temples on Korriban



Have a good 4th of July everyone!

Respectfully,
Sanjuro

As the SITH Medallions are individually numbered, members who pay first will receive a lower number on their Medallion.  Please do not place any orders at this time.  When the Medallions are ready, I will post in the Misc for Sale section, and you may pay then.

PS:  I'll send a SITH Medallion free to the FX-Sabers member who is first to answer this for me....

The Jedi Symbol and the SITH Symbol are different in two ways, one way is that the Jedi Symbol is raised, and the SITH Symbol is sunken.  What do you suspect is the other difference? And why? (the question will be much easier when I post a pic of the design prototype...).  Only 2 guesses per member please - you may post your guesses here.

can't wait for it!  :o

just a note: shouldn't it be "THE FORCE shall FREE me." instead of "THE FORCE shall set me FREE."?

i've seen both versions, but i think the first one more familiar... discussion?!

I'm down for a Sith medallion! "The Force shall set me free" has a nicer ring to it, IMO.

I've seen it phrased as "the force shall free me" more than "set me free".

Here is a pretty sweet artists rendition of the Sith Code.

"The FORCE shall set me FREE" is set in stone (well metal anyway).

Sorry all, this won't change.

Sounds amazing, I can't wait!

- Individually numbered

Whoa, cool! Is the Jedi coin numbered as well? I went back and looked at that thread, but I don't see any mention of this.

Great catch.

The Jedi Medallions are not numbered - specifically so.  It didn't seem to "fit" that the Jedi would want their own numbered Medallion like that.  SITH, on the other hand...

Part of what I do when I design something is to conceptualize it first, the reasons for it, and the design that would embrace all elements of the idea behind it.

So for the Jedi Medallion, the Jedi symbol is raised (it stands above), the Medallion is silver, the edge engraving has the Jedi trials and a quote from Yoda, but no quote of "May The Force Be With You" (this would commercialize the Medallion too much for me, and the quote seems to me should be spoken).  This is the Medallion a Jedi would be given upon his/her completion of the trials, would carry, or hold in place of honor, or pass to their padawan...

For the SITH Medallion, the SITH symbol is sunken (as if chisled in the ancient tombs of Korriban), the Medallion is... (won't give that away for now), the edge engraving has the quote that many SITH have used to tempt others to fall, has a proposed SITH trials, the SITH mantra, and are individually numbered (a SITH would definitely want that ;))

The Medallions are like mirrors of eachother, as perhaps the Jedi and SITH should be.

I'll do a video when the Medallions come in to further demonstrate what I have conceptualized.

The Medallions are not just a "neat" design, but much thought went into each one, and several proofs done before I finalized and approved the minting of each one.

Respectfully,
Sanjuro

Yessssssss!  I want one!
 "THE FORCE shall FREE me." instead of "THE FORCE shall set me FREE."?

I like the first one more but I can live both.
