In addition to being named the Hero of Tarentum for GJW XII (the most points of all Clansmen!), Ranarr has been one of those who has a profound impact on the Clan. I have told Ranarr on numerous occasions that he is certainly a future Consul of this Clan, and he stands out just as brightly as any of the past heroes of Tarentum. We have been incredibly lucky to have him.
Since his last promotion, Ranarr has either organized or co-organized an incredible 73 events, participated in an astounding 210 total events, and he has done it with the best attitude. He is sincerely one of those who is a paragon, and a shining example of what we all ought to be. He has earned a total of 1,839 medals (most being Clusters), with a stand-out of two Grand Crosses. He served two months as Rollmaster of the Clan, four months as Quaestor of Liath, as well as a dedicated term of six months in service to the gaming community as Magistrate to Dracaryis. He has been in a total of 293 PvP or PvE matches, and Ranarr represents not only Tarentum, but the Brotherhood. Everyone knows him, or they know his name. He stands out amongst all of us. When we see an attitude like his, we are drawn to it. Ranarr is not one of the faceless. He does not get lost among the crowds of men. He is a lion, and we all know when he is among us.
He has also written over 500 words of fiction (which is still pretty impressive for an almost exclusive gamer), passed nine Shadow Academy courses, gained two degrees, and still makes time to be a wonderful father to his children.
Ranarr never speaks ill of others. He reminds the entirety of Tarentum what it is to be a friend. He shows the Brotherhood that Tarentum loves this Club, and that we want to befriend everyone here. Ranarr is a member who literally cannot be held back, because he has a drive and dedication to do it all, and to bring others along with himself. He is a leader. A true leader.
Congratulations, my friend. You are well on your way to becoming an Elder. We love and appreciate all you do for us in our Clan.
