Grand Cross

Primary reason

Xantros has long been a member that has seemed to constantly defy expectations of activity, dedication, and drive for this club. Be it as a leader, a mentor, a member, or a friend, Xantros doesn’t slow down for a single second of his time here in the club. Since his most welcomed return to Scholae Palatinae, Xantros has already provided multiple documents outlining ideas for furthering DJK+ development, including contact letters to newly made Knights, an archived newsletter of recent competition submissions, and one on one trainings. He has further provided ideas in regards to helping all members more clearly develop their characters, and learn to craft better stories.

By the numbers, Xantros continues to prove to be a most active member, with 75 total competitions participated in since his last recognition, and a further 7 organized by himself. He has earned some 19 crescents, and over the course of 31 fiction activities written some 24,941 words! This doesnt even include all the other writing he has done, such as the above mentioned documents and guides.

Xantros is a member who very clearly loves this club a lot, and continues to spend day after day working to better it, and himself. I am incredibly glad to have Xantros around, and to call him a friend. Congratulations on the Grand Cross Xantros! Drinks are on you!

Additional reasons

Lithar is one of those members who is always doing something, he participates consistently in competitions and if he doesn't find any of a certain ilk he will create one for the members around him. Braecen has already taken the liberty of displaying his stats and, as such, I'll not waste time by reiterating them, instead, I will point out that for the longest time Lithar has been a positive driving force of our Clan. His activity levels and positive attitude in the Clan’s telegram channel has inspired many members to engage and participate further within the Clan and that is something I am truly thankful for.

Congratulations on your Grand Cross, Lithar!

Lithar has been a wonderful help since I've arrived as Rollmaster to Odan-Urr. Despite being retired from the position of Rollmaster for some time, he has reached out to me on several occasions to provide advice, shared his ideas for possible additions to the New Praexum, and offered suggestions on member development for consideration by the Clan. In addition to his activity, this level of dedication to the Clan is commendable.

I believe that Lithar is more than deserving for this award. Congratz!

Lithar (Xantros) was an absolute pleasure to have in the Clan and a member I'm thankful for every day. He is an absolute fiction and ACC machine, I don't think a fiction competition runs in the clan without him submitting something to it. He's also one of the first to volunteer for a project or to welcome a new member into our Telegram channel. In short, Xantros continues to be a leader through his stellar example and made COU a better place just be being in it. Thank you for everything you do.

I am ecstatic for Xantros to receive a Grand Cross of the Dark Side ! Since his return to the Dark Jedi Brotherhood, he has prepared and organized 7 competitions since January 1st for members to submit to, designed 2 workbooks chalk full of information (at least 10 pages each!) for members to utilize in developing writing skills, has offered to aid members and leaders wherever he can, and has also made himself more dedicated and committed to the clan by penning his every goal and focus for his role in the DJB down for the leaders. I’m so thankful to have gotten to know such a knowledgeable individual who is excited and more than eager to share his wealth of knowledge with every member he can. Way to go Xantros! Congratulations on your Grand Cross.

I am honored to recognize the achievement of Xantros today with a Grand Cross of the Dark Side. This medal holds great meaning in the recognition of a single member in service - and activity - to the club as a whole. And I am honored to present recommendations from both Odan-Urr and Scholae Palatinae towards that end today.

Since his last elevation, Xantros has participated in 72 competitions, organized 7 competitions, finished 4 ACC Battles, penned 31 Fiction Activities (24941 words!), posted 2 times in a run-on (554 words!), passed 3 Shadow Academy courses, and earned 1 Dark Side Degree. In that same time, he has collected a myriad of awards: 19 Crescents (3 Cr-R, 3 Cr-A, 8 Cr-S, 3 Cr-E, 1 Cr-T, 1 Cr-Q), 70 Clusters of Ice, and 4 Scroll of Foundation. And, arguably, been a consistent force for change and activity in House Excidium and Clan Scholae Palatinae. Already, he has presented several ideas to help shape the direction of both House and Clan and we are eager to see his continued activity and work in the coming months.

Your heart is truly invested in making our club a better place. Continue to be true to that and you will find all of the success you have ever wanted in this club. Thank you for everything!
