Force Crusaders is the oldest Star Wars players organization in Poland. Founded in November 1997 as a Order of Light Side players of Star Wars Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight FC operates non stop for over 9 years. Our goal is to gather players who identify themselves with Jedi philosophy. Over the years we had more than 100 members and right now we have nearly 50 active Crusaders. Our main interest lies in games such as Jedi Knight: Jedi Outcast; Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy and some still play Dark Forces II: Jedi Knight. Force Crusaders were always interested in shaping Polish Star Wars games scene. We took part in every league or ladder started and even hosted 3 events: 2 Movie Battles leagues (mod for Jedi Outcast) and a Jedi Academy league (hosted together with Order of Paladine and Force Renegades clan). Right now we host over 15 game servers for both Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy.
Crusaders not only play but also create. Since the times of Dark Forces II we released many maps, models and skinpacks. Many other addons were created for Jedi Outcast and Jedi Academy. Our members also write fan fiction stories, tutorials, manuals and create web pages for both Order use and for the wide public.
Our last but not least important area of interest is called Force Cathedral. A special place on our forum where we discuss aspects of Star Wars universe which are not related to computer games. Movies, books, RPG almost every topic is covered in our discussions. Force Cathedral members release descriptions of places, characters or events form Star Wars universe which can be read on our homepage (Polish only).

Earning this rank ends the trials. Adepts are full members of Force Crusaders and as such their actions are recorded in the Orders archives. Adept's main function is to find a Menthor among the Knights or Masters. Only then, when the selected Menthor accepts him or her as his Apprentice an adept can be promoted.

The rank of Master is the highest rank that can be earned in the Force Crusaders. One can become a Master on the request of the Jedi Council or the Grand Master. There are two paths a Crusader can follow. One way is to perform outstanding achievements for the Order. Another way is to take the responsibility of a part of Force Crusaders and based on the performance the Council may decide on the promotion. Masters are the only Crusaders obliged to work for the Order. So accepting that rank bears both great prestige and responsibility.
