Today I am pleased to recommend that Jacob, aka Caesar, be advanced on to the rank of Equite 3. Breaking past Equite 2 can be a difficult task, and Jacob has shown he has the chops to continue his long and capable DJB career. The ever active and ever analysing Jacob has had nearly two years of dedicated activity since reaching Equite 2, and been a great member to continue to get to know better and work with.
I first was introduced to Jacob while he was a member of Clan Tarentum. He contacted me inquiring about bolstering gaming events between the different clans of the club. This contact grew until eventually he and Delak began to work side-by-side to get a inter-clan Battle Team event, with Team Grey Wolf and Team Shadow Guard. This event was a well planned and execute venture from both sides, one I know the members who participated in had a great deal of fun doing. When he decided to change things up and transfer in to Scholae Palatinae, it was an easy move, with so many of our members already knowing who he was. We were grateful to receive such a passionate member, and one who was so consistently looking for ways to better relationships and activity between all members of the club.
Beyond my interactions with him while he was serving as a BTL in Tarentum, Jacob’s activity record shows his persistent drive to do so much in this club. He is currently sitting at some 67 participated competitions, 2 SA exams, 1 PvP Match, 51 PvE matches, and 10 fiction activities clocking in at 4801 total words. He has earned a Steel Cross, 2 Anteian Crosses, 2 Diamond Stars, 2 Ruby Stars, 2 Amethyst Stars, 5 Sapphire Stars, 4 Emerald Stars, 3 Topaz Stars, 7 PoBs, 440 Clusters of Fire, 22 Clusters of Earth, 10 Clusters of Ice, 1 Scroll of Indoctrination, and 1 Seal of Loyalty.
Many Congratulations Jacob on a promotion well earned! Drinks are on you!

Savant Jacob or Caesar as he was know in Clan Tarentum has been a good Battleteam leader for the Grey Wolf, the BT he has started and nurtured into the unit that it is today. Grey Wolf was the first Grey unit of Tarentum. With the help of Caesar, Grey Wolf gave numerous leaders including: Altheseus Levathan, Lucifer Scorpio Romanov, blackhawk and Ranarr Kul. This unit also helped in the formation of Tarentum's newest house: Liath. As a BTL, Jacob, was a regular reporter, he maintained constant presence on Telegram and via email, and he regularly organized competitions not only for Grey Wolf but for the Clan and the club as well. He has even made alliances outside the Clan with other battleteams such as Shadow Guard BT of Clan Scholae Palatinae. These alliances have turned into successful co-op competitions like the New Alliances.
His personal activity was always high and even though his time and access to computer was limited due to his RL job he gave it the best he could. He's a great guy and I'm honored to recommend him for this promotion. Congratulations!

Jacob is a member that first became known to CSP when he, alongside Delak, organised an interclan battleteam event, New Alliances, between battleteams Shadow Guard and Grey Wolves. New Alliances was a full scale event of 8 competitions and a backstory, available here: https://www.darkjedibrotherhood.com/competitions/9646 which was a major success, as evidenced by the 15 unique participants from members of the two battleteams eligible to compete.
We are happy to have Jacob in our ranks, and are thankful for what he has done for the clan both before and after his transfer from Tarentum.

When discussing the beginnings of the battleteam Crucesignatis Imperialis, Jacob was concise and exact with what he wanted and expected. And although he had left due to RL issues, he has returned as equally interested as he was before he had to leave. It's this dedication and determination that I love seeing in members. I won't say more than what's been said above, but Jacob is a standout member who served his Clan for 11 months as a battleteam leader. He deserves this promotion to EQ3.

Caesar has always been active on Telegram, and was passionate about being the best possible version of himself in Tarentum. We wish him well, and Tarentum is happy to support CSP in their efforts to have him promoted. Whether going by Caesar, Potus, Jacob, or otherwise, I'm certain he is continuing to be a valuable member to them.

Since his last promotion, Jacob has organised 16 competitions, co-hosted a further 10, participated in 67 competitions and placed in 18 of them. Jacob has earned 2 diamond, 2 ruby, 2 amethyst, 5 sapphire, 4 emerald, and 3 topaz. Jacob has also earned 7 pob, 440 cfs, 10 ci, 22 ce, 1 steel cross, 2 anteian, a scroll of indoctrination and a seal of loyalty. Jacob has also passed the trial of acquisition and the gray jedi core exams. But these are just the efforts of a singular, active members, these do not show he is ready for the senior ranks of the equites.
For over 11 months, Jacob was the active leader of Clan Tarentum’s battle team named Grey Wolves. He sent out reports, engaged with the team members and made sure there was enough things for them to do.
It’s my impression that Jacob is ready to be named an EQ3.
