It appears that my news post was a few hours too early. A couple more announcements need to be made.
Battlefront Season Pass
Battlefront announced today that a Season Pass will be released for Star Wars Battlefront. It will cost about $50 (USD). If you know you want to purchase this you can pre-order/purchase the Star Wars Battlefront Ultimate Edition which includes the Deluxe Edition of the game and the season pass. No price has been announced for this yet, but the Deluxe Edition is currently $70 (USD). There aren't a lot of details about the season pass, except it will include 4 expansion packs with 2 week early access to these packs. You'll get an exclusive emote. It would seem that if you want the entirety of Battlefront that it will cost around $110-$120 (USD). While this can be upsetting for some and DLCs are meant to be optional if you truly plan on spending a lot of time playing this game it's probably worth it. It's entirely up to you though. I hope to upgrade my pre-order from Deluxe to Ultimate soon.
UPDATE: There were also new modes that was revealed today that will be in the base game. The first is called Hero Hunt. Players will start out as a Hero or Villain while other players hunt them down. It will be 7v1 and when you kill them you take their place. Cargo is the next mode and it will be Battlefront's version of Capture the Flag. Droid Run is the third mode. You will be attempting to capture and maintain control of elusive droids in a 6v6 match.
Earlier today applications were opened for 2 magistrate positions in the FIST Office. No deadline was mentioned, but to clear things up applications are due no later than the 20th and we reserve the right to close applications early if we feel we've found our 2 candidates.

Your friendly, neighborhood Praetor to the Fist brings you this update containing information regarding gaming in general. I’ll be bringing you updates around the middle of each month and I’ll update you on anything remotely concerning gaming that I think is worthwhile, whether it’s club supported or not.
FIST Staff Openings
Applications are being opened for to become a Magistrate to the Fist. We will be accepting applications for 2 Magistrates.

Star Wars Battlefront
In case you’ve been living under a rock Star Wars Battlefront is coming out. The Beta has been ongoing and ends on October 13th. As of this moment we’ve received 62 submissions for Battlefront with 18 unique participants for the Battlefront Beta competition. Val posted what the Beta PC requirements were. The game will be supported on all platforms. Also, R.I.P. Luke Skywalker
Any time a specific platform gets mentioned a debate starts. Xbox or Playstation which is better? I’ll gladly provide an opinion if you’d like since I own both, but I’m not a fanboy of a particular company. Consoles are like athletic shoes. Some people like Nike and others like Adidas (Go Nike), but they both do the same thing. For those of you who haven’t moved on to next gen and are thinking about making a purchase the Playstation 4 has received a permanent price reduction of $50. It is now $349. Maybe you might want to pick up the Star Wars Limited Edition PS4. Thank you for your patience you silly PC Master Race types.
Star Wars Aftermath
“What the hell is this? I came to this update looking for gaming news not stuff about books!” Sorry guys, but I came across this news while writing this and decided to share it. I’ve heard some things about Star Wars Aftermath that say the book wasn’t that great. For those of you dedicated fans there are two more books coming. Aftermath: Life Debt will come out in 2016 and Aftermath: Empire’s End will come out in 2017 to finish the Aftermath trilogy.
October Gaming Releases
Here are some releases coming out in October. For those of you in the UK I found some deals for you. Too bad I don’t live in the UK or I might get some of those.

Despite the day's news being dominated by a certain gaming event there are some other big breaking stories for everyone to be made aware of.
In the midst of the New York Comic Con that opened today, we've already gotten some new Star Wars news to chew on, this time in the form of the much anticipated Star Wars Rebels Season 2. Even though we've already been introduced to a few new and old characters already, and have seen one or two minor teasers, we haven't gotten a full length trailer for season two since Celebration...
Season Two of Star Wars Rebels premieres October 14th at 9:30 PM ET/PT On Disney XD
My lovely Brethren, I hope you are all well today, my dears. Tonight I am announcing that Clan Arcona is looking for a new Rollmaster! It's a critical position to the Clan as a whole, and one we want filled as soon as possible. That said,...

Included in this update is yet another plug for the Battlefront Beta this weekend, information on the PC as our Battlefront platform, and Star Wars Uprising DJB Cartel info and Dev Q&A. Along with the standard competition listings, Crescent winners, and Pendant of Blood PVP champion type dudes.
This is important enough for me to plug it in a Report I'm posting right above the Beta News. Read the Battlefront: Beta Test & Specs News Post. There's plenty of awesome information to be found in it including information on Cluster rewards for this Beta Weekend as well as a Competition that will be running during it.
Battlefront: PC as Club Designated Platform
As Pravus mentioned in his report earlier this month PC will be the official platform for the Dark Jedi Brotherhood. The two factors that weighed heavily on this decision were that historically PC games have fostered better communities followings, and that PC offers better longevity for the game.
As an example related to longevity, lets look at Jedi Academy which was released in 2003 and still has a decent amount of folks playing the game. Its useful to our club in that it is a PC game which nearly any computer can run now, and is very fairly priced so it doesn't put a financial burden on members. The same advantages could not be stated for a video game which was released in 2003 or 2004 on a console. The network to support game play may no longer work and outdated consoles may be the only ones able to run the game (depends on backwards compatibility or re-releases).
From this perspective PC is the only logical choice for our Club that takes into account long term growth.
As Pravus mentioned in his report all platforms will be supported, however there will be a Cluster advantage for PC Battlefield players. Right now we're working out if that will be a temporary (1-2 month) deal or a long term benefit.
In closing, I'm going to quote Pravus from his report on this topic, "We will support Battlefront across all platforms. Buy the game where you want, play where you want, and have fun where you want."
Star Wars Uprising: DJB Cartel Info and Dev Q&A
The Star Wars Uprising Mobile MMO game has been out and available for almost a month now. We had quite a flurry of members rush to try the game out, and I've seen several who felt it didn't live up to what they hoped for. Due to the way the Cartel system is set in the game, we can only maintain 40 members at one time. As there are additional Club Members who are active in the game and who would like to get into the main DJB Cartel (we had to form a second one to accommodate everyone) I'm going to be removing Cartel members who have not logged into the game in the last 14 days.
Now, for those of you who are still playing the game or even are still considering it and looking for a reason to pick it up again Aabs came across an interesting Dev Q&A regarding Uprising. This covers a wide range of questions from the long term viability of the game to if higher level materials will be able to be broken down into lower level materials. Its a pretty nice read, take a few minutes and gain some insight from the development team.

In a much awaited bit of news, last night Star Wars EA has finally shared with us the PC Required and Recommended Specs for Battlefront. This comes as we approach the start of the Battlefront Beta Test, which begins this Thursday (October 8th) and continues through Monday (October 12th). The Beta will be available on all Platforms (PC, PS4, and Xbox One). As you review the PC system requirements I strongly urge anyone who has concerns with if their computer can run the game to download and try the Beta. This will give you a good idea of your systems true capabilities.
Per EA Star Wars these specs are representative of the final release specifications. I copied them directly from the EA Website.
Star Wars Battlefront Beta Minimum Specs:
- CPU: Intel i3 6300T or equivalent
- RAM: 8GB RAM
- GPU: ATI Radeon HD 7850 2GB or Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 2GB - DirectX 11.0
- OS: 64-bit Windows 7 or later
Star Wars Battlefront Beta Recommended Specs:
- CPU: Intel i5 6600 or equivalent
- RAM: 16GB RAM
- GPU: AMD Radeon R9 290 4GB or Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 4GB - DirectX 11.1
- OS: 64-bit Windows 10 or later
The Beta Test will include three modes of playing: Walker Assault (PVP), Drop Zone (PVP), and Survival (PVE). Later tonight I will be creating an option to submit gaming activity for each of them through our usual Gaming Portal. Screenshots of match results page will be required. The purpose of this is to gather information so we can accurately determine what Cluster awards should be for each mode at launch. Based on that rewards will be low for this Beta Weekend, only one Cluster for each match (keep reading though).
We will also be running a Battlefront Beta Weekend Competition. This competition will double Clusters and be judged based on most Clusters earned (no weighting of Clusters). Unlike Gorefest, the Cluster doubling will apply to all members who participate in it. So really... its 2 Clusters per match for the Beta Weekend, because Battlefront!
Some other Beta News to be aware of is that there will be a Base Command Companion App which can be tested during the Battlefront Beta as well. During the Beta it will only function on the PC though and will not be available in its Mobile App form.
Finally, EA Star Wars just launched their official Forums associated with the Battlefront game. Not going to be able to play the Beta this weekend, but still want to know everything about it? This is probably a good place to start.
As you get warmed up for this weekend you may find yourself looking for some tips... take a read on each of these:
I'll see you on the icy plains of Hoth putting blaster bolts into some Rebel Scum this weekend DJB! The Beta is finally here!

Custom Weapon Request Form
The new custom weapons form is live, ladies and gents!
James will update your dossier links within the hour, but if you're very much impatient, you can find it in this news post.
Important notes and tips: The form contains all the currently available custom weapon lists and items. Please read it thoroughly before submitting - especially the parts about ranged weapons.
Also, we expect a bit of an overflow with the newest ranged and melee weapons so if you don't get your weapon right away, be patient. We're handling it. Some delays are expected.
If you see any bugs in the form contact me via e-mail with specifics and possibly screenshots, don't post this into comments of on Telegram.
If you have any questions at all, ask them in the comments or contact me directly via e-mail or Telegram (both are on my dossier).
You can find the request form HERE!
New Custom Guns!
DL-45c Magnum Heavy Blaster Carbine and E-11c Marauder Blaster Carbine are now available. That is all for the Custom guns department for a while to come. We have other projects in the works that take priority. Enjoy your new toys.
Introduction October 1st I do hate you so much. Welcome to another of my Herald reports. Today, finally, we’re releasing the Custom weapons for Non-Force Users...well, sorta. Read on to find out more. ;) I'm on the front line, don't worry...
October 1st I do hate you so much.
Welcome to another of my Herald reports. Today, finally, we’re releasing the Custom weapons for Non-Force Users...well, sorta. Read on to find out more. ;)
I'm on the front line, don't worry I'll be fine
One DC members does not the Staff make. This is very true across the board, but especially in the herald’s office. Graphics work is tedious and it takes a long, long, looooong time to get right. That said, having support often helps, and September was especially hard for me, having finals along with all my Herald work and gasp as social life.
So I wanna say thanks to my whole staff. Every one of them has stepped up in their own way to help me get to this point. They are my pillars and without them the Office wouldn’t be on track. So thank them for your new shinies. ;)
The story is just beginning
Non-Force User's Custom Items - Release!
Finally, it’s here. The Non-Force users that have recently been released are getting their Custom weapons. The weapons are divided into Ranged and Melee weapons.
How do they work?
It’s very simple. Lightsabers and Melee weapons will function in much the same vein. You will request whatever you want, depending on your rank, and it will be made from scratch for you. Truly Custom weapons. This has more to do with our workflow and techniques. Making swords/axes/hammers is very, very similar to sabers, depending on the amount of detail.
Ranged weapons, on the other hand, are nowhere near as simple. That’s why we’ve had to implement a template system. The ranged weapons listed below are ALL either Star Wars Canon or Star Wars inspired, to keep with the overall theme of the franchise and fandom. What this means is that you will be choosing whatever weapons you wish to display as custom on your dossier and we will be modifying them according to your wishes.
From material used (steel, chrome, blackened metal, bone, wood, ivory, etc, etc) to colors of specific components, to what type of grip you want on your precious baby. Basically all of these weapons are templates we can modify to fit your vision and the Request forms will reflect that.
Speaking of those, they haven’t been finalized yet, so expect them within a day or two. I’ll add a news post and then you can go crazy and request all the things! :D
Here’s the moment I have to apologize. I really, really wanted to release a lot more weapons today, however the growing list of projects from the DC (Fiction Society most notably) took up most of my time. So we’ll only be releasing part of the weapons we intended to. You can expect more weapons and mods in my next report in two weeks.
So without further ado, I present to you all the Custom Ranged weapons templates we’re releasing today.
Lightsaber requirements - Changed!
For a while now I’ve mulled over the idea of changing Lightasber (and now, Weapon) requirements. Many members have asked about this and, today, I have a solution.
Let me explain what i mean first. Latest canon has show that dual wielding lightsabers or even using staber staffs isn’t really restricted to higher echelons of Force Users. To accommodate this we have developed a new system of rankings for the Lightsabers and Weapons in general. Here’s the rundown:
Armory weapons have been expanded to include dual weapons and double-bladed weapons. Right now Armory Single Sabers, Armory Vibroswords and Armory blasters are available to the Journeyman 1 ranks. Dual Sabers, Dual Vibroswords and Dual Pistols are available to Equite 1 ranks. Armory Saberstaffs and Armory Double-bladed Vibroswords are available to Equite 2 ranks.
More options are given to Equite ranks regarding dual and double-bladed weapon variants. EQ2 gain five additional dual sabers to choose from, wehre as Eq3 get all of them and five additional Saberstaffs.
Cutsom weapons are seeing changes as well, where Equite 4 ranks recieve Custom Saberstaffs as well as Custom dual sabers. Elder 1 ranks recieve Dual-phased lightsabers, while UV lightsabers remain restricted to Elder 2 and above.
We’re introducing Custom Cortosis (saber resistant) Blades for Elder 1 and above, as well as Custom Sith Swords for Elders 2, and Custom Dual Sith Swords for Elder 3.
Much of this affects mostly lightsabers but it will also affect NFU weapons in the future as we release them.
All additional info is listed on on these wiki pages:
For now I can say that in addition to these changes, we have released a new set of Melee weapons called the Armory set. Expect more in the future, and enjoy.
Feature - Fiction society rewards
The Fiction Society has been released a few days ago. Many people have been asking how all the rewards look. Well, sans all the options and such, you can see the rewards down there.
I'll take this moment to mention my Staff again. they did a badass job here. Slagar managed to complete the stiletto, Sith Dagger and Comlink, while Esca did the Scanner. They really outdid themselves here. All in all there are 138 image included in the Fiction Society.
I say goodbye to my weakness, so long to the regret
Warbanners, Sabers and Requests
Let’s start with:
In the past two weeks none were completed. Due to the amount of work we’ve had to do, sabers were paused for a bit. Now, we’re back on track. Expect more next report.
Teu Bukhari Sadow
None. Same reason as above.
None. Same reason as above.
And now I see the world through diamond eyes
There’s a Form for that
DB Art Community Telegram Group
If you’re interested in joining the TG group and sharing your art, be sure to click the image below:
Ask the Herald
Brae asks: #AsktheHerald What are three ways I can drive Atty/Arcia bat shit crazy in the weeks leading up to Halloween?
How should I know? XD
Monty asks: #AsktheHerald: Hailing from a tree family do you have a visual depiction of your family tree?
I do not. My family tree goes back millennia and the knowledge of it has been lost to all but me.
Donny asks: #Asktheherald - Considering the growing size and talent of your team. Will you eventually be intending to have a few members begin working on training/teaching competitions for the brotherhood at large to prepare members for GJW GFX competitions?
Maybe. It really depends on our time. our priorities are pretty fixed at the moment. However, the DB Art Club was created for just such a purpose. People are getting better and better just by communicating. I imagine we’ll get more GJW gfx entries this year than any before.
Atty asks: #AskTheHerald what do you think of artwork depicting characters throughout their life/aging process? Can we see sapling Vyr?
I think that’s cool. Why not depict your character as a child. Hell I might just commission someone to depict Vorsa as a padawan.
Sapling Vorsa is...as sapling. Seen one, seen ‘em all :P
A’lora asks: Can I have a Lightstaff?
You already have one :P
Atty asks: #AskTheHerald ...Kara Thrace and Six/Caprica/the Tricia Helfer Cylon...which would you pick?
Teikhos asks: #AsktheHerald Will the Loyalist/Mercenary robes and weapons make their way to the wiki like the Force-user robes have?
Probably not. There are far too many of them. Maybe as links, though.
Kyle asks: #asktheherald if we ask the Herald staff for custom robes and they agree, is it ok?
Atty asks: #asktheherald if you had all your projects and pieces done tomorrow, what's the next piece of art you'd do for fun?
I’d probably sleep. I usually do art for fun only when I’m inspired to do so. But a week after? Maybe.
A’lora asks: #asktheherald with the number of extreme changes about, will the restrictions regarding lightsabers be changed/considered in order to fit better with the canonical examples of less-powerful characters making use of dual or double-bladed lightsabers?
Already done, love.
Turel asks: #AsktheHerald, who has the best custom saber in your opinion?
I do. Obviously.
A’lora asks: #AsktheHerald, as your OTP, do I have parking reserved on your Star Destroyer?
You get a hangar.
Turel asks: #asktheherald what are some examples of things that aren't allowed in saber/warbanner requests
Tough one. In warbanners we usually allow everything that looks like a logo, though we tend to deny if that logo is copyright of any RL company or such. What’s usually frowned upon are character images (be it yours or other people’s) and fully rendered illustrations as crests. keep the logos simple, black-and-white.
As far as lightsabers are concerned, it really depends. Basically anything that you can have is listed. If something comes up that’s out of the ordinary we do a case to case approval/denial. But I have no good examples of denials in that field. So far everyone’s been pretty straightforward about their sabers.
Wally asks: #asktheherald if a neti falls over in the forest but no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?
Atty asks: #asktheherald any plans for expanding those coolio society tattoo options? I want to ink a fist onto somebody's forehead and call it ACC :P
No. Those tattoos are made in that way specifically for the Fiction Society. i doubt there will be any more.
Zoso asks: #AskTheHerald You promised me customizable weapons. I have no weapons. Why do you lie to me? :(
Commission artists and Artist Feature
Every report I will present an artist from various sites on the internet that do commission work. You can directly contact them through their contacts on these pages:
It's Durandus again. This time showing of a commission he did of Jai'de Serpens.
So September was long and hard (phrasing?) but we managed to do a lot of the work I marked down for completion. Next up? Herald Style Hanukkah and Possessions.
Hope you enjoy the news. As always...
See you Space Cowboys. ;)

I am going to be on a LoA for about a week starting tomorrow. I will have access to e-mail and will be around in an emergency, but I am not going to be doing much else during that time. I am getting absolutely slammed at work and need to concentrate there for a bit.
