Lieutenant Colonel Nikola Valtiere Erinos
Old Rank
Commander (Equite 2)
New Rank
Lieutenant Colonel (Equite 3)
Requested by
Warden Ira Ojiman
Primary reason

Since his last elevation, Nikola Valtiere Erinos has demonstrated the fortitude and dedication necessary to advance to the rank of Equite III in Clan Arcona. He has been an able-bodied leader, a mentor, and a participant over the past two years. I am honored to raise him to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in the Loyalist Order.

Valtiere has participated in 55 competition and (co)Organized another 23 competitions since his last elevation. In that time, he has also submitted 2 PvP Matches, 5 PvE Activities, finished 2 ACC Battles, completed 3 Fiction Activities (2902 words!), passed 3 Shadow Academy courses and gained 1 Dark Side Degree. He also has collected a Grand Cross of the Dark Side (Extraordinary effort as QUA of HQD), Anteian Cross (Clan Involvement & ACE Pilot Program), 7 Crescents (1 Cr-A, 1 Cr-S, 4 Cr-E, 1 Cr-T), 5 Clusters of Fire, 11 Clusters of Ice, 22 Clusters of Earth, and 2 Scroll of the Master (Lexiconus & Kaiburr).

In this time, he also served as the Rollmaster of Clan Arcona for 7 months and Quaestor of House Qel-Droma for 7 months. I will let others discuss his efforts in these roles and his recent work on projects as a member of Soulfire and Galeres. In summary, this is long overdue and I am honored to see him elevated to his proper rank and begin work on his next.

Additional reasons

As Galeres’ house leadership has detailed above Nikola Valtiere Erinos has been an instrumental part of Clan Arcona leadership for a long time. Since his stepping down from Rollmaster I think most of us expected him to take a break of sorts. this is however not what Will had in mind.

Since coming to Soulfire he’s been very involved in the development of the team’s new identity. This includes writing, editing and finally wikifying our new base of operations. He’s also been an active voice in our telegram group, not afraid to voice his opinion and get involved in anything and everything that requires involvement from our Battle Team members, House members, and Clan members.

This involvement doesn’t simply stay within Soulfire, Valtiere has been an active participant in several of the Clan wide competitions we have ran or are still running, including Arconan Gaming Dominance, Arconan Flash Series and Captain Arcona:Civil War (CA:CW).

Simply being an active member didn’t seem to be enough for him, so when he got the chance to be an integral part of the Ace Pilot Initiative he grasped it with both hands. When will starts a project, he makes sure the result nothing short of amazing. This is signified by the Anteian Cross he received for his work on the ACE Initiative.

All in all, from years of leadership to a battle team member, no matter what position Will is in he is and will always be an important member, a great example and part of the reason what makes Arcona what it is.

It is my pleasure to recommend you for the rank of Equite III, you’ve more than deserved it!

In addition to that which my counterpart Braecen has detailed above, Nikola Valtiere Erinos (hereafter known as ‘Will’) has been one of the stand-out members of the clan from the start. I remember when he joined during my tenure as Consul. Will was wide-eyed, bushy-tailed and eager to get started. This drive, this determination, this passion seemingly never left him as it does so many others. Since his last promotion, I’m pleased to say that Will has been instrumental to Arcona’s success. For his efforts during the Dark Crusade, Will earned 33 Seals of the Crusader whilst acting as the Quaestor for one of the most active houses in the Brotherhood - if this isn’t leading from the trenches, then I don’t know what is. In addition to this, he also earned 6 Seals of Revelation for his efforts during the Eleventh Great Jedi War.

Will served as Quaestor of House Qel-Droma for 7 Months during the Fading Light Vendetta. He was consistent, supportive, and effective in his management style. He was easily able to liaise with his colleagues and house members, and maintained strict email turnaround times which gave the house a level of stability that it had rarely seen in years past. In this capacity, he was one of the primary organisers of Operation: Figureheads alongside then Galeres Quaestor Cethgus Tiberius Entar. This was managed through an interactive spreadsheet which detailed the results for ease of review by the membership at large. During this event, there were 30 unique participants. Grading such a large amount of entries would be a daunting task for some, but Will took to it with ease. For his stellar efforts, Will earned a much deserved Grand Cross of the Dark Side.

Following his stint as Quaestor, Will also acted as the Clan Rollmaster for 8 months from February to October of 2015, during which time he mentored the clan’s journeymen through to the rank of Knight. For his efforts during this period, he was awarded a Seal of Loyalty and a much needed rest.

I don’t know if anyone who could say a bad word of Will. He is dedicated, passionate and talented. He has been deserving of the rank of Equite III for some time, and it is an honour to contribute to the recommendation.

Congratulations, Will. You’ve earned it.
