Before you submit your New Member Registration Form, make sure you have everything you need, and know what to expect.
Your personal data, including first name, middle initial, (optional), and last name and a nickname, (optional), that you are ok with being known by in the legion
Your location, including country, state/province, address, city, and zip code.
Your contact information, including phone, email, and alternate email and personal URL if you wish. Note: Your address, home phone, email and URL can be set to public or private during this initial process, so that you can determine who has access to it. Next, you will enter your Imperial data which consists of your desired Legion ID numbers, the garrison you are local to or plan to troop with, a squad if you would be part of one, and your costumes that you have ready to apply to the Legion with.
Your Legion ID (TK number) is something that will follow you for as long as you are active with the 501st Legion. It's important to us, and will be important to you. You will be given 5 choices for a Legion ID number. It is best to try to decide what you want and then consult this list to make sure that your TKID is still available. If this list has your number, it should be available, unless it's in the application review process.. but you will find out when you hear back from the Legion. SEARCH AVAILABLE TKID'S HERE.
Once you fill out the 5 choices for Legion ID, you will then need to select your Garrison, and Squad.
If you are on the west side of the Cascades, choose: Garrison: Garrison Titan( areas:Washington (state) (United States) )
If you are on the east side of the Cascades, choose: Garrison: Garrison Titan( areas:Washington (state) (United States) ) and then for Squad choose Havoc Squad(Garrison Titan )
Next Please select a single Imperial costume that you OWN, that is COMPLETED and that you can provide PROOF of OWNERSHIP upon REQUEST (Note: You MUST already have your costume chosen, and completed before you register to join)
You will then be required to accept a few legal disclaimers before you click the APPLY NOW button.
