=== SWU Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) ===
How do I play the Star Wars Unleashed? Edit
The Star Wars Unleashed is an online Star Wars Community. There are several ways you can interact with the Star Wars Unleashed community, one way, which is the most used is to participate in our Role Playing Games where you play your favorite Star Wars character in the Star Wars Unleashed galaxy, where you are the representants of good and evil, not the well known characters from the real Star Wars universe.
A lot of people also go to the Star Wars Unleashed IRC (Internet Relay Chat) chat server, so should you, a lot of talk is going on there, most of the members have fun talking to each other, learning each other better to know as well as having fun role playing their character. However, it's expected that people behave in the chat room, otherwise it can lead to a ban from the server, which we would like to avoid :o).
Now it is also possible to interact with the Star Wars Unleashed via a Win32 client called SWU Manager. More information on SWU Manager can be found at Star Wars Unleashed Manager Section. Update: SWUM Manager is currently out of commission.
Is it FREE to be a member of Star Wars Unleashed? Edit
Since Star Wars Unleashed is a NON PROFIT organization, it is totally FREE to be a member of the Star Wars Unleashed.
Where on the Star Wars timeline does Star Wars Unleashed takes place? Edit
The Star Wars Unleashed timeline begins several years after the events of the latest film, Revenge of the Sith. Several noted differences exist in our timeline. Please check the timeline on our website for more information.
How can I join the Star Wars Unleashed?Edit
If you are here solely to chat or to roleplay on the message boards, you do not have to create a character (join up with the Star Wars Unleashed Manager System), then you should go straight to our message boards. However, if you wish to use the Star Wars Unleashed Manager (Win32 application), you will have to join up with the Star Wars Unleashed Manager System, which can be done through the SWU Manager application itself, and eventually via the Star Wars Unleashed site at a later time! However you should know that you can only have one character in the SWU Manager system at a time, and you can NOT sign up using free provider e-mails such as hotmail.com and Yahoo.com.
How can I know if my character has the force? Edit
That is a thing you can only check in the Star Wars Unleashed Manager, since if your character has the force or not is decided by the primary SWU Manager Server at the time you join. However, it is important that you know that the Manager will tell you that your Force Sensitivity is unknown till you have been tested by a member mastering the force already. To get more information on this, please ask on the boards or in the chat.
What is the system requirements for SWU Manager? Edit
These will be released when the SWU Manager v1.0.0 is due to release, but it is for sure you will need a Win32 based OS (Win9x/NT/2000/ME/XP) and an internet connection.
I have further questions that needs an answer! Edit

Factions and MG's are groups lead by SWU members and also administrated by SWU members. In short, the SWU groups are groups of members, and in that way have the possibility to have large fleets and other things that a freelancer could not ever hope of having/affording.
