Upgrades seeking names are listed below, but you do not have to submit suggestions for all of them. Remember to check the Wiki to see how the themes for each medal work.

I would add an upgrade tier to the DC by inserting a new first-tier upgrade (Iron), shifting Copper above Steel, and adjusting all of the rest up by one:

2 Dark Cross w/ Iron Plating DC-IP
3 Dark Cross w/ Steel Plating DC-SP
4 Dark Cross w/ Copper Plating DC-CP
5 Dark Cross w/ Bronze Plating DC-BP
7 Dark Cross w/ Silver Plating DC-SiP
10 Dark Cross w/ Gold Plating DC-GP
15 Dark Cross w/ Platinum Plating DC-PP
x Dark Cross w/ Diamond Plating DC-DP

For the Grand Cross, I would do something similar: insert three tiers below the existing upgrades that reflect the description of the GC: "Traditionally the cross, as it relates to the Force, represents The Four Stages of the Dark Side: Temptation, Imperilment, Submission, and Atonement." I would add a Grand Cross w/ Pendant of "Temptation", "Imperilment", and "Submission". Obviously the Four Stages don't sync perfectly with adding only three tiers of upgrades, but "Atonement" doesn't sound very Dark Jedi-y anyway.

The new GC upgrades should be added to the bottom of the upgrade scale because they reflect pieces of the symbology of the medal, where as the existing three upgrades are more complete representations of the Dark Side.

For Grand Cross, we've gone as far as we can using names inside the DB (nothing above the throne). So I went out into Canon:
- Grand Cross w/ Pendant of Ziost
- Grand Cross w/ Pendant of Dromund Kaas
- Grand Cross w/ Pendant of Korriban

For Dark Cross, there was no real choice. Aurodium is the most valuable material in the galaxy. If you remember the novel featuring Anakin and Kenobi on Zonama Sekot, you'll recall that 3 aurodium rods, wearable in a satchel around anakin's neck (so around the neck of a 10yo) is worth 6 billion credits.

Alternatively, you could use Electrum. In RL this is an alloy of Gold and Silver. In the SW galaxy, it is a metal in it's own right (palpatine's saber is coated in this (so is windu's)).

Note: Personally, I believe we should get rid of all these upgrades. Due to the way we utilize ID-lines these days, they are no longer needed and they don't tie into anything else. It's an old system that is not needed in the current DB. But, I'll submit some stuff because why not :P

Dark Cross Upgrade:
- Dark Cross w/ Corusca Plating (rare and expensive SW gem)

Grand Cross Upgrades:
Grand Cross w/ Pendant of the Dark Lord

I'm going to be wild and work outside of the box.

I would like to recommend that outside of the two Clusters, instead of creating new names for more addons... we just delete all the addons.

I'm going to give you a tiny bit of history on this.

In the original days, Addons were for medals when someone earning 4 SCs was almost unheard of. Back then, a SC-SoP (4SCs) was almost as prestigious as a sacramental award. Medals used to be scarce, and were often listed on every email members sent, as they identified themselves not by a dossier number, but by an ID Line.

In today's day and age, none of those things apply. The only medals with addons that have any sort of function at this point are the Clusters, due to the ungodly amount of them that are awarded. Every other award in the Brotherhood, beyond merely being listed as "DCx30" serves only one purpose: a static amount of prestige and eventually credits per award.

ID Lines are no longer used as a form of identification. People do not advertise their medals. Make the ID line cleaner, and just go back to GCx3 / SCx7 / ACx6 / DCx23 / GNx13 / SNx10 / BNx22

We already use a simple number system with seals and crescents. Lets prevail upon some wisdom and do it elsewhere too.

I suggest these so that the sacramental awards see the same wholeness as the crescents and novae.
