Old Rank
Dark Jedi Knight (Journeyman 4)
New Rank
Obelisk Templar (Equite 1)
Requested by
Master Marick Tyris Arconae
Primary reason

Times are changing in the Dark Jedi Brotherhood. Uji, or Donny as we all know him (the artist formerly known as "Snar"), is one of Arcona's most active and passionate members. He set club records with his race to DJK, and unlike many who hit that mark, Donny never slowed down or stopped. In only 5 months since his Knighting, Donny went on to serve as a BTL for 3 months, and has been serving as Magistrate for the last 2 months as well. Every day he is constantly asking what he can do to help, and how he could give back to his Clan and his Clanmates. As a BTL, Donny lead by example in the last round of the Dark Crusade- and was even a Special Forces selection at that. On top of that, he has dedicated himself to helping Gaming in the Brotherhood by creating events and encouraging others to participate. It's this level of dedication and hard work that seperates him from any of the other Dark Jedi Knights in the club. For this reason, and those of his Aedile, Quaestor and and the Fist, I request his elevation to the rank of Templar.

I'm sorry I couldn't have gotten you this sooner, Donny. You are an invaluable member of Clan Arcona, and it is a pleasure to serve as your Consul. Keep up the awesome work, and welcome, officially, to the big leagues, where you've been in my eyes all along.

Additional reasons

Since Uji has taken the position as my Magistrate he has been involved in several projects. The most visible of them are the Gaming Competitions he has been running for the members of the Club. Uji organized the September Starcraft II based event, set up a Mass Effect 3 Competition to determine if there was enough interest to bring it in as a supported platform, and most recently has run the Zombie Highway Mobile Gaming Event.

He is currently in the process of writing a Gaming focused SA Course, which will be added to the Journeyman Hall after the project completes. Uji consistently provides valuable feedback on projects which are being worked on within the Fist Office, most recently the ROC revamp which went live earlier this month.

Congratulations on your entry into the Equites Uji!

I could honestly wax on and on about S’nar’s many accomplishments and accolades (and we all know I could, too), but I’ll be brief and just say a bit about my teammate and friend.

His presence, not only as a fellow Galeres leader and Arconan Summiteer, but as a clanmate and brother, has been nothing but a boon. He channels his managerial experience and his fair, logical perspective into all his opinions and decisions, and I can confidently say I’ve learned more simply from that differing perspective than anything else, both as a leader and as a person. He takes initiative in all he does, works to cooperate with all the members of his Clan, and never stops planning how to better Dark Forge, Arcona, and the Brotherhood for all their members.

On a more personal note, S’nar has been a dear friend to me in the time I’ve known him. He’s a beacon of humor, composure, and courage; he makes us laugh when we’re not-so-happy, calms us down and discusses issues when things aren’t going so well, and has never been afraid to speak his mind or advocate for himself or another. And, while he’s a brother to me, his most admirable quality is probably that he’s also a brother to everyone here. I’ve had the privilege in my life to know a few, truly kind people; and no matter what varying opinions he may garner with his actions, I know S’nar is one of them.

I can’t think of anyone who deserves this more; so, congratulations on Equite, brother. You’ve more than earned it.

I am honoured to be recommending S’nar for this promotion to the rank of Obelisk Templar. His hard work and passion for the House and Clan has been nothing less than extraordinary as well as his willingness to help others. He has been a beacon of activity and has recently taken on leadership inside of the Militant House.

Since his last promotion he has already managed to achieve his Steel Cross for his devotion and hard work during the Dark Crusade, tying into his massive presence in gaming and fiction. S’nar has managed to pick up a total of five-hundred and nineteen Clusters of Fire, an impressive amount in such a short time, keeping himself as one of the top contenders inside of the gaming field. Due to his massive amount of activity and work in the various events during the Dark Crusade he has managed to pick up four Gold Novae as well as two Silver Novae, pretty much outdoing any other Knight in the Brotherhood. Don has taken part in a total of Eleven Dark Crusade events, covering a broad field of what was available to him.

Despite his hard work during the Dark Crusade, he still stays as active during the rest periods in the Dark Crusade. He has participated in competitions and been an inspiration for his team, focusing them and giving them a drive as well as taking part himself. During the competitions he has entered, he has managed to achieve a Emerald Star as well as two Topaz Stars. Showing that he is willing to put himself out there even during down time from the Dark Crusade and leading Dark Forge through example. He has also focused on gaming in his spare time, ripping up Diablo 3 as well as Star Wars: The Old Republic, earning himself two Pendants of Blood for his hard work, working with others on Flashpoints and chapters. He has also earned a Scroll of Foundation during his time here.

Now to talk a bit about his leadership time inside of House Galeres, he started off as an Executive Officer inside of Soulfire Strike Team. His work there was something close to outstanding, he smashed through the wiki work which needed updating, seeing the Battleteam Wiki page brought up to a updated level and to a high standard. Though that’s not the only thing he did during his tenure as XO, he continued to keep in constant contact through IRC and email with these members. This helped drive Soulfire through a round of Dark Crusade with the Battleteam Leader.

By proving himself, he has then assumed the mantle of Dark Forge Battleteam Leader, filling the shoes with ease he got straight to work. Since taking on the position I have seen constant emails to his team as well as a report out trying to keep the members motivated and active. He has also been helping the Journeymen to keep them on track to achieve their goal of Knighthood. He has also engaged with his Equites, ensuring that they enjoy their time in the team and have projects to contribute to, one of which is to bring more of Galeres’ background (SCEPTER) into the picture. He is a hard working and supportive Battleteam Leader and one that I couldn’t do without, his work ethic is something everyone should strive towards.

I am proud to be giving S’nar this recommendation for this elevation into the Equite Ranks. Congratulations, man, you earned it. Keep up the hard work in the future and I look forward to continuing to work with you.
