New Rank
Battlelord (Equite 3)
Requested by
Warlord Bentre Sadow
Primary reason

It has been over a year since Evelynn Wyrm joined the ranks of our club's Battlemasters in August of 2016 and yet he has not been lounging about in that time. Some are content to game on in Diablo 3, Pazaak, Heroes of the Storm, Destiny 2, Starcraft 2, Overwatch and Pazaak. Rather than that, Evelynn worked hard as an Aedile to make his House more competitive over two months, before taking the seat of Quaestor of Shar Dakhan for another 5 months. He also worked as a Magistrate under the office of the Fist for 3 months, showing his desire to help improve the experiences of his fellow club as well as Clan members. Evelynn worked to provide members opportunities to take part in various activities and I can honestly look at House Shar Dakhan today and see his fingerprints. The House has remained competitive, and he has remained more than willing to offer advice as he feels it is needed to help strengthen our unit.

One part of leadership is to lead from the front. I don't think it can be argued that Evelynn has failed to do that. Since last promotion, he has participated in 181 competitions, organized 15 competitions of his own and helped out others with running another 12. He has remained a solid gaming presence in the Clan- a natural area of strength for him- through a healthy dose of Player versus Player and Player versus Environment activities. Remember those platforms that I listed above? Evelynn has PVP'd in Jedi Academy, Force Arena, Pazaak, Diablo 3, Starcraft 2 and Overwatch. The really cool part of those 78 PvP matches? His experience in Jedi Academy served him well in the 12th Great Jedi War.

His PVE activities and dedication in Heroes of the Storm, Destiny 2 and Diablo 3 in particular also proved helpful in the War. He managed to take 3rd in the 1v1 Jedi Academy Tournament, 5th as part of a team in the Heroes of the Storm 2v2 Tournament, and snagging a tight 1st place in the Diablo 3 Greater Rift Solo Run competition. All that PVE activity adds up to 242 bits. That is a lot of Rift running, a lot of matches vs bots in HOTS and a healthy chunk of Destiny 2.

Now, despite his taste for gaming, Evelynn is again not only a gamer. He has also taken and passed 7 courses, completed 2 ACC battles, and participated in 10 fiction activities. Those 10 activities include six RO posts over which he wrote 2439 words and another 1667 besides. He also scored six Legions of the Scholar between taking part in Telegram trivia, hosting Telegram trivia and placing in event-related trivia competitions. He also wrote 6 news posts during his stints as Aedile and Quaestor, keeping our members in the know and going to lengths to ensure they remained motivated. During this time he worked to try to make the concept of the more competitive Disciples of Dakhan battle team more viable. It is a testament to his work that the current Quaestor has continued the operation of the Disciples to this day.

That isn't to say his work has went unrecognized. Evelynn received a Grand Cross, a Steel Cross and an Anteian Cross for activity and on the first two awards, his demonstration of commitment to the unit. Since joining the Equite 2, he has farmed in Clusters of Fire (2428!), Clusters of Earth (1911!) Pendants of Blood (24!) and Clusters of Ice (10) through hard work. He doesn't just like to play hard though. In more than gaming, Evelynn likes to win. He has shown this in the 78 awards he has roped up for competitions. That is right, I said 78 awards. This spans from measly 1 Crescent with Quartz Star, to 4 Crescents with Emerald Star, to 15 Crescents with Sapphire Star, to 24 Crescents with Amethyst Star and 25 Crescents with Ruby Star. Now, that isn't all but I do want to point out how this is a bit significant. The more serious the competition, the more than he has stepped up. That and it gets a little harder for the eye to track as I rattle off numbers. I didn't want to diminish the impressive nature of the next bit. The 7 Crescents with Diamond Star are nothing to sneeze at but his crowning moment of awesome is how Evelynn earned a Bronze and Gold Nova in the recent War! Not bad given the 17 of a 28 possible comps he took part in during GJW XII.

At this point, I could reiterate how hard he works, how dedicated he has been, or throw off some line about leadership that sounds like it came from a bad movie. I think I will pass on that. Really, all of his work seems to largely speak for itself. It has been a rewarding experience working with Evelynn, I love seeing the care he has shown for what they he takes part in. I also love the fact that even as he stepped down from a position he never stepped completely away. That care for what happened in Naga Sadow did not stop. So I think it is proper time that we recognize that care and hard work. I hereby recommend that Battlemaster Evelynn Wyrm be promoted to the esteemed rank of our 3rd grade Equites. Congratulations, Battlelord. I look forward to seeing what more you will accomplish as a member of the Dark Jedi Brotherhood. I also really hope that you will be chilling, fighting and gaming alongside us for some time to come.

You know, like until the world ends or we all become old and senile or something.

Additional reasons

What is there left to say about Aexod/Evelynn/Doc Serbia? He is an outstanding member of Naga Sadow and Shar Dakhan, and lives his legacy every day. I can think of no better example of a member who has lead by example on a consistently impressive level. I won't go into the minutiae of what he has accomplished because that was thoroughly covered by others in this recommendation. I will simply say that I am appreciative for the groundwork that Aex laid down ahead of my taking the helm of HSD, but am even more appreciative of his desire to continue to excel from the ranks of the membership. This promotion is very well deserved. Congratulations, Aex.

Well it's kind of hard to follow all of this up. You have seen the numbers and the intangibles that have helped Evelynn lead HSD into a new future now under Aul and myself. The ideas we have had together have been good and not so good but one thing is for sure, there are never a lack of ideas on what to do. Gamer, writer, friend, colleague, Evelynn gave me my first shot at Aedile when no one else wanted me around, not even members of CNS. I am proud to have served with Evelynn and I continue to proudly serve under Aul. Great job with all of your hard work over this past year and keep it up into the future!

Evelynn has gone above and beyond on every occasion that I've asked him. He's led from the front in every event. He's supported and encouraged his fellow members and has mentored many of them in gaming. He took the time out to coach me in Heroes of the Storm and Diablo 3. Several evenings spent gaming and pointing out where I went wrong ans how I can improve. I've not been the only person Evelynn has coached or helped gain Paragon levels in Diablo 3, in order to be able to run Rifts and earn clusters. Evelynn has been a positive influence in Naga Sadow and has helped the Clan re-find its feet when it comes to gaming. For his hard work over these past 13 months have given us ample reason to see Naga Sadow come fourth in the Great Jedi War and come within a hairs' length of taking third.

Combine this with his leadership and activity, mentoring Aul Celsus, Jurdan Krennel and Lilith, Evelynn left HSD in a strong position. Evelynn has had a lot of say in the Clan and I've listened to his ideas a lot, even if we may not have always seen eye to eye, I could rely on Evelynn to speak his mind and he had several excellent ideas of his own that he was able to implement.

The creation of the Disciples of Dakhan and the growth under Aul has seen them become a positive change that Evelynn enacted to counteract a sense of inactivity and malaise that had affected HSD and CNS.

Thank you for all of your hard work, Evelynn.

Congratulations on reaching the rank of Battlelord!
