This May 1st may very well be more fun for us Star Wars junkys than May the 4th. Why you might ask? Well the Big Bang Theory and Lucasfilm have teamed up for an explosive episode. They have gone all out and spared nothing. From what I have read myself it sounds like it will be a show to watch and maybe even record to have to watch over and over again.
I am a fan of the show and to see them do a full on Star Wars show is going to be great and just in time for us to get a jump start on May the 4th. Every member of the cast is very excited about the show but every one is very shut shut about what will happen.

Bryan Young, of Big Shiny Robot, posted a video today announcing that Disney Publishing WorldWide will be releasing four new kids books.
The first book, which I am genuinely excited about, will cover episodes IV, V and VI and will feature illustrations from the late Ralph McQuarrie, who did the original Star Wars concept art. I'm planning on getting this book just for me as I love McQuarri's work.
The other three books will each tackle one of the original trilogy episodes and feature illustrations from the prequel trilogy's concept artist, Iain McCaig.
The aim of these books looks to be to get kids, who have only grown up on the latest three films, excited about the original trilogy in the lead up to Episode VII.
Expect the first book to be out April 2015.
This raises an interesting question, will the more adult books start coming from Disney Publishing WorldWide when the current license with Del Rey Books expires?

I have just rolled out the changes to the Prestige system as detailed in Raken's report.
As mentioned, these changes cause your position history to be taken into account while calculating your prestige. If you are unsure whether all your previous positions have been recorded properly, please have a look at the Credit History Report, which can be found on your administration panel. The credit history report uses the same data as the prestige calculation code.

Today is an auspicious day.
Some time ago, many of our brothers decided to change things. They left the comfortable, the obvious. They ventured off into unknown territory, unsure of how things could possibly turn out.
They said that we wouldn't last a year.
Today marks eleven.
To those of us who are new to the Brotherhood, or haven't read up on history, Today is Exodus Day, a holiday for the Dark Brotherhood. It is the anniversary of the Seven leading the Brotherhood away from the Hammer to make our own way.
Times have changed, and relations between the Hammer and us have healed with time, but we can not forget our past.
It is also on this day that we honor those among us with Seals Of Loyalty, awarding those among us who have displayed the tenacity to keep on working to improve this club that we love. We nominate those who give all that they can to the club, those who do it for the love of their Clan, their house, their order, their brethren. It is those people, those attitudes and those work ethics that keep the Brotherhood moving forward.
Each of the Dark Councilors and the heads of the clouses have nominated people for this award, but I hope that you all join me as I personally extend my thanks to each of them. Please accept this as a token of our gratitude, of our esteem. Thank you, for all that you do.
From Clan Arcona: Marick, Legorii, Wuntila, Ood, Baxir, Ernordeth , Andrelious
From Clan Naga Sadow: Maelous, Locke, Macron, Xia Long, Vexatus , Roxas
From House Odan-Urr: Kah Manet, A'lora, Sanguinius, Edgar Drachen
From Clan Plagueis: Aabsdu, Montressor, Kz'set, Brimstone, Teylas , Selika, Naomi, Taranae
From House Scholae Palatinae: Xantros, Evant, Xen'Mordin, Thran
From Clan Taldryan: Keirdagh, Aiden Kincaid, Howlader, Halcyon , Benevolent
From House Tarentum: Raiju, Anshar, Hades, Scion
On the Dark Council: Jam3z, Valhavoc, Pravus, Socorra, Kalen, Raken
Another Exodus Day tradition is to honor one particularly awing individual with a special award. The Silver Sash is awarded but once a year. Weighing the actions and devotion of several members whole year is difficult.
Solari is one who I admire. His devotion to the work is inspiring. He never grandstands, he never even draws attention to the work he does, and there is plenty to point out. He has been nothing short of stellar as Headmaster, and I am extremely pleased that we have the good fortune to have him at the helm of our recruitment efforts going forward. But the work is not all we are looking at here. What is equally impressive is his demeanor, his humility, and his drive.
His humility elevates the work he does beyond mere tasks. For him, this is a passion. This is a labor of love. 'It's not about the pixels' has been a recurring theme on the Dark Council, and it is with Solari that it seems to be held most true.
Honestly, I feel that I could write for pages about the man. But this would be a disservice. It would seem to be counter to his goals, paying lip service to a man who cares naught for speeches and grandiose recognition. He would tell me that I would be better off spending my time on some other project. So instead, I offer earnest thanks and an acknowledgement that the brotherhood is indeed better for his involvement. That much, I feel, he would think as enough for him.
From a grateful Brotherhood, a thankful Dark Council, and an appreciative Grand Master, please accept our thanks and this token of our esteem.

We are raiding on a regular basis, at the moment the main goal for our raids is to try and get the newer members gear. The current Officer that is setting up raids is Armags, I would suggest that if you have a level 55 and are currently trying to get gear speak to him about this matter. He will try and set something up for you no doubt as we get the guild stronger with max level characters.
Once we have more members that are at a higher level of gear we will then try and get the higher end raids completed. So I strongly suggest that you begin to level your gear up, this way we as the Brotherhood Guild can continue to progress to the higher level of raids. Keep up the hard work here guys.
This is something that you can do with most members, Flashpoints are a good way to earn XP and Gear at the lower levels. While it only takes four people to do these missions as long as you are with two DB members you can get CF’s for your effort. As well as when you hit 55 they are a good way to run Hard Modes, to get yourself some Elite Commendations all to work towards getting the gear that you will be required to have to run the harder raids.
As most of you would have seen by now we currently have a new TeamSpeak Server up and running. If you check Valhavocs news post it seems that the art of war server closed down without any prior warning for us as the users of the site. For this reason the FIST has already set up a new TeamSpeak Server for the Guild and any other member of the Brotherhood who wishes to come along and chat while gaming. Information for the Team Speak Server is as follows:
Server Address: ts01-il.aspnix.com:2023 Password: DJBrulez1
We use TeamSpeak for such things as Running in group flashpoints, setting up Raids. As well as communication throughout the Raid, both myself and Valkish strongly recommend that you look into using TeamSpeak.
Updates Coming Out
With the recent patch being out we have seen the addition of a new 55 storyline being added. We both strongly recommend that you give these FP’s a run if you get the chance, they are pretty fun as well as giving you a bit more of a Storyline increase inside of the game.
The next updates that we are looking at will be the addition of the Housing system, with rumors going around about the updates as well as the cool stuff that come with them. If you want to know more the best place to look is on the Forum’s while I speculate that most of this will only be speculation till the patch it is worthwhile keeping your eyes open for when it is released.
Finally the one that you have all talked about, it has been strongly suggested and put out there that at some point we will see the addition of Guild Ships added to the Fleet. While we are open to this as so little information is currently around for us to use we are unsure of what to expect or what we will see come out for these. But none the less as time comes up and more information is passed out we will begin to release details for all of you, but have no fear myself and Valkish are looking into more information on this all the time. As well as making sure that when they are released will will do the best we can to make sure our Guild gets the benefits from the ships.
Double XP Weekend
As most of you will know by now their is currently a Double XP weekend running in the game. This gives you the opportunity to level up quickly and efficiently on your character, earning more XP for everything from killing an enemy to completing a mission. So if you are not yet fifty-five, or even if you have an ALT that you wanna put some time in, this weekend will be the best time to do so to get those levels racking up. I look forward to seeing all of you online.
The Guild and You
In this section we will be just explaining about how the guild is working now, as you have seen we have had a new position opened for the Houses and Clans known as Unit Reps and we will explain how they fit inside of the Guild.
First of all myself and Valkish, well simply put our jobs are to make sure that everything keeps running smoothly and in a timely fashion. We will bring you information and news and be around to answer any questions that you have or any concerns that you have about the Guild. As well as hosting the competitions and other events for the Guild.
The Officers of the Guild are there to make sure that they oversee the Day to Day running of the Guild. These guys will be helping set up raids, doing Flashpoints as well as just answering general questions that you may have about the Guild. Though remember if you need anything done on the spot it will normally be the Officers who will be able to help with this stuff.
Unit Representatives, these guys are the members inside of your House/Clan who have the power to invite you to the Guild, they will be able to sort you out from the start, helping you get the information you need as well as having your rank set to member if it is required. If you need an invite for the Guild I strongly suggest that you try and find your unit rep first. As a reminder, Unit Reps are selected by their respective Quaestor’s/Consuls. If changes are made to unit reps Cethgus or I will make the change.
Finally, where do you sit in all of this? Well simply put without your constant participation and time inside the game the Brotherhood Guild would cease up. So its because of all of you playing ToR that the guild is where it is, so keep up working hard and expanding your experience and knowledge of the game and the Guild. And most of all go out there and have fun.
Teamspeak Server is running again. Full details on Server Address and Password can be found on the DJB Voice Server Wiki. Thank you to everyone who offered up suggestions on some reliable companies to go with!
