Bound by the Force

Bound by the Force is the official newsletter of the Forces of the Empire. Bound by the Force (BBTF) is published four times a year, and a subscription is included with your membership to FoE.

Each Division within FoE has its own section in BBTF. The Divisional Sections are used by each division for role-play reports, in-character communication, publishing stories, etc. Submissions for a Divisional Section should be sent to the Division Leader of that division. Divisional address can be had from the General Club Address.

In addition to the Divisional Sections there are two special sections. The first it Galactic Transmissions. GT is part of the Mercenary section. It is used for general, in-character communications.  It is like an IRC channel almost. Because it is part of the Mercenary Section, transmissions for GT should be sent to the Merc Division Leader.

The other special section, is the General Club section. The General Club section is used for out-of-character communication between members, for discussion and Letters of Comment (LOC) on general things in StarWars Fandom, and similar issues. Submissions for the General Section should be sent to Pat Grant at the General Club Address.
