Primary reason

Tamashi, probably better known as Mord, had something of a slow start after moving to Odan-Urr. I don't mean to say he did nothing; on the contrary, he established himself as a friendly presence on Telegram and earned himself an Anteian Cross for his feedback during the Possessions beta test. It just took him a little while to build up to the blazing pace of activity he's set for himself in the last few months. Since his last recognition for activity, Mord's participated in 86 competitions. That by itself is noteworthy, but there are two other things that make this member special.

First, he does everything. Shadow Academy? He passed 2 courses. Art? 3 Clusters of Graphite. Fiction? 3 Clusters of Ice. Gaming? Hoo boy, 2 Pendants of Blood, 150 Clusters of Fire, and 235 Clusters of Earth. It's no wonder that he's racked up 1 Cluster with Ruby Star, 4 with Amethyst Stars, 1 with a Sapphire Star, 6 with Emerald Stars, and 3 with Topaz Stars.

Second, Mord wants to contribute more than just his participation. During this period, he's organized 10 comps with even more in progress. Although I was co-organizer on some of these, Mord was the one who approached the house summit with ideas, and he was the driving force behind making them happen. Back in his Arcona days, he spent 2 months as BTL before coming to COU. Not only is he active on Telegram, but he's one of the few house members who keeps email conversations happening.

Thanks for everything, man, and congratulations on your second Grand Cross!

Tamashi, or Mord as most know him, is a seemingly endless font of enthusiasm for everything the club has to offer. Whether gaming, fiction, ACC or just chatting about character concepts he's always ready and eager to participate and engage with the community. Since his last award for activity in August he has accumulated a strong record of activity that has really begun to soar recently as Arch has detailed. This recognition is long overdue and certainly well earned. Thanks for everything you do Mord!

Additional reasons

Tamashi is a bundle of energy. Once he has an idea in his head, he follows it through to completion post-haste. I've had the pleasure to work with him on two fiction competitions and had the pleasure of gaming with him on Jedi Academy. In addition, he has always been willing to help out others, whether it be gaming, writing, or fictional development. Overall, he has been a great addition to the Clan and has made a nice impact.

Well deserved and Congratz!!

When I hear Tamashi, or Mord as he is more commonly known, I think of a whirlwind. Since I have met him, he has been an almost constant presence on the Clan and House telegram channels. Whether it's plugging competitions he has created, another member's competition, taking on a student, or interacting with his House mates, he is a positive influence everywhere he goes. I am glad to count him as a member of the House, I hope to work with and get to know him better! Congrats!
