Augur Reiden Palpatine Karr
Grand Cross
Requested by
Adept Braecen Kaeth
Primary reason

I am absolutely ecstatic to be able to provide this recommendation today. It is an honor and pleasure to be able to recognize Reiden Karr with a Grand Cross for the considerable efforts he has made on behalf of Scholae Palatinae & Imperium for the Great Jedi War and these past few months. Starting as an individual who was unsure at times of what he can contribute to the club and where his place was within it, it has given me great pleasure to watch Reiden develop himself into high contributing member of our community - of which, I would state Reiden is now a pillar of our core group.

During the course of the war, Reiden contributed to 14 different events (including the ACC Ladder beforehand) and received 197.94 placement points for Scholae Palatinae. In addition, Reiden crushed the two Puzzle events and earned 1st for both, while also earning a 6th place finish in the Survival fiction competition. Furthermore, since his last recognition, Reiden has co-organized 22 different competitions, competed in 26 activities, completed 12 PVP match, 12,365 words of fiction, passed 2 Shadow Academy courses. A further note of importance, is that Reiden has been Imperium’s most active member of our community. He’s always engaging members on both clan and house telegrams, holding support for any house or clan project, and is genuinely the strongest core member of the House.

So thank you, Reiden.

We couldn’t manage without your continued contributions, dedication, and overall presence. Keep up great effort, and know that you are a pillar of the Imperium community and for that we are all grateful. I cannot wait to see where and what we shape Imperium into, together.

Additional reasons

Reiden is the man. I mean, THE man. Reiden is one of the core pillars of our new BT, and is a shining example of what right looks like when it comes to waging a GJW. His constant communication, verbal support, and high level of activity set an example for all to see. He's earned the unofficial title of "Puzzle Master" around these parts, and has firmly established himself as a talented writer, dedicated team member, and loyal member of CSP, Imperium, and BT Krennic. Coming in just shy of 200 points in GJW participation, he led the BT in activity. Reiden is constantly available whenever I have questions about the BT, house, or clan and he's always willing to give his opinion on things when asked. I'm thrilled to be able to recommend this award for him and can honestly say that this BT would not be the same without his high level of commitment and dedication!

Reiden - you keep being you, man. You're an absolute bastion of strength for our battleteam, house, and clan. I'm looking forward to seeing what you continue to do for the group! Thanks for all that you do! -Sparky

Reiden is not one to mince words. He’s honest of what he thinks of himself and what he can do. On TG he’ll tell you that occasionally he may not deserve a reward and can’t find reasons as to why he obtained a specific reward. So I’m not writing this for the MAA as much as I am for Reiden:

You got two gold novae. You got 6th place in two GJW fiction competitions. The only people you didn’t beat out were a few Elders and a professional writer in the Survival fiction. In Retribution you beat out Consuls, Proconsuls, and a strict ACC Judge. You got 14 Seals of Wrath. That’s 14 competitions and winning a few of them. You can game well, write well, do the misc comps well. You give ideas on things when you want to, such as trying to help me and Lex, and then Raiju and myself with the development of the BTs.

If this is the Reiden that doubts himself, then this Reiden is, bluntly put, amazing. I would not want to face a confident Reiden in writing or gaming (you’d puzzle me to death as well). I do hope that I have shown you why you deserve this. Take the Grand Cross, Reiden. It is your first, but it won’t be your last.

Reiden is a core member of Scholae Palatinae in terms of activity and community contribution across all aspects of the club. He’s earned over 20 clusters of fire, ice and graphite. His performance in the GJW was exceptional, being one of two in the clan to earn a gold nova, and earning two of them for puzzle times that were frankly inhuman. In addition he earned 2 6th place finishes in fiction entries, cementing his place as one of the top performing writers in the club right now.

At the same time Reiden has co-hosted 22 competitions, providing additional activity for his clanmates, and is one of the most active participants in the clan telegram channel, always there to welcome new members and help them feel at home in the club. Reiden is such an important member of the clan and has been for over nine years. It’s time his loyalty, skill and work rate be rewarded with his first Grand Cross of the Dark Side!
