At the center of Jurai culture is the unconquerable drive not to settle for less, second best, or just enough. Our fiercely competitive members come together from all walks of life, and embrace our global differences. Spirited discussion and debate ranging anywhere from life, music, sex, prose, poetry, and war are welcomed and encouraged. Many friendships have been forged over heated battles of wits, or long, eccentric discussions. Juraians' fervor never should be viewed as anger, but as the defining force that make our House stronger.

House Jurai has been an established power since 1996. During this span, House Jurai has adopted many influences and traditions. Foremost is the pride and respect for our unit, our command chain, and fellow members. We proudly display our uniform in game and on forums, and bow to each other as a show of respect. While HJ has many existing traditions and customs, there are always plenty of opportunities to create new ones.

Advancement in House Jurai is not a popularity contest, but an acknowledgement by the command chain of a warrior’s battle prowess, leadership ability, loyalty, and dedication to House Jurai. Besides our internal rank structure, HJ warriors also have the opportunity to be honored by joining one of several Samurai Families, each with their own unique mythos. HJ's Samurai are the best of the best, and display their family name proudly. Most Juraians consider being accepted as a Samurai a higher honor than any rank, ribbon, or medal.

One common tradition of HJ's is to celebrate our victories with an after-party, complete with lengthy chats, adult beverages, and an HJ DJing on our very own web radio station, Angel Radio.  An unspoken requirement during such celebration is to play HJ's celebration song(s):

Blur - Song 2 - a celebration song for the younger generation


Queen - We Are the Champions - the original Old Guard celebration song


Like the phoenix of mythos, HJ has risen from the ashes of various mecha games and planetary leagues, and is looking forward to the challenges ahead, where we can one again claim...

We Are Jurai!

"In Germany they came first for the Communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up." -- Martin Niemoeller
Heard a carol, mournful, holy, chanted loudly, chanted lowly, 'till her blood was frozen slowly, and her eyes were darkened wholly, Turn'd to tower'd Camelot.

"Loneliness is a birthday cake with only one piece missing." - Anonymous

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
-- William Ernest Henley

A hunger to fight, a thirst to conquer
As battle cries flow from the depths of my soul
Lightning strikes behind the war field
The enemy attack force becomes clear
Fools they were to challenge us.
They will pay with their lives.
For we will not give up
I am a warrior


-- Lynxcat, 2000
