Ven Zallow Academy (VZA) is a traditional Jedi training academy role-play guild set during the era of the Galactic Republic.
The academy was established in 13 ATC (3640 BBY) following a harsh Revanite strike made against the Jedi Temple on Tython. The Jedi decided it would be beneficial to set up a new training facility, and while some considered it redundant, most agreed that a second haven for learning was better than one. The addition of this new academy would allow for more students to be trained at once, and could serve as a backup in the event of another attack on Tython.
The Jedi Council decided that a stronger Jedi presence on Coruscant would improve relations with the Republic, and also allow for greater ease of access between the Republic’s various departments and the Jedi at that academy, should assistance from the Jedi be needed. The plan was submitted to the Senate, who approved the measure and allocated an unused facility to house the academy.
UPDATE: The Ven Zallow Academy has evacuated Coruscant in order to keep the students safe from the Eternal Empire invasion following increased resentment from citizens. We have since returned to Tython in order to aid in rebuilding the Jedi Order.
