Ka Tarvitz is a passionate and invaluable member of the Odan-Urr community. Many know him for his zeal for the expanded universe but we in COU know Tarvitz as one of the most polite and reliable members to have around. He's a leader in the ranks who quietly sets the standard in activity and project contribution.
For individual activity he has participated in forty-five competitions since his last promotion (plus an additional eleven container competitions) and secured crescents in twenty seven of of them. He also completed four matches in the GJW ACC preliminary event, took third place overall in the COU-TAL coop event Desperate Measures and recently took second overall in the House Hoth event Suspicion on Solyiat. Tarvitz is one of the clan's heavy hitters when it comes to activity.
Beyond his activity and community presence Tarvitz single-handedly researched and drafted an approximately 10,000 word wiki page fleshing out House Hoth's home planet. As the House Hoth summit describes, this page is just one example of the can-do attitude and work ethic that makes Tarvitz invaluable in a volunteer organization such as ours.
Congratulations Tarvitz and thank you for everything you do for COU, our community wouldn't be the same without you. If you'll pardon me for saying so :p

Tarvitz, our resident destroyer of Mouse lore and do-er of freaking everything. Turel and Edgar have gone over the numbers metrics, so Im just going to touch on what other things he brings to the team.
He is a constant source of chatter among his House and Clanmates. Often times challenging us to look deeper into our characters which often brings to light a new way to look at them, or even new ways to alter our CS's. While he loathes the new canon, he is very helpful in bringing some of the Legends material to light that can be of use to everyone. Lastly he is a constant help to the Clan by offering to proof ACC posts, fiction, reports, and is a mad man at creating new content for our House wiki page.
Congratulations my friend, this is well deserved!

Tarvitz is one of those rare members that you can always rely on to complete a task in a timely manner. Using the Notable Fauna Wiki page as an example, Tarvitz was always ahead of the deadline; several days before I was prepared to ask for a progress report, I was being asked to glance through and give him my thoughts on the creatures he had created. It's not often you find a member that apologizes for the depth of detail or for being ahead of time.
That is only but one example of the kind of person Ka Tarvitz is. He puts everything into his work, with no thought toward the recognition it will bring. He simply does it to bring more life and depth to the fictional backstory of not only House Hoth, but Clan Odan-Urr as a whole.
It is for this reason that I am pleased to be recommending Ka Tarvitz for a Grand Cross. Congratulations, mate! You've more than earned this!

As Turel already mentioned his beyond stellar numbers I want to focus on what Tarvitz brings to not only House Hoth but the entire clan. He brings a insane work ethic that puts most of us “active” people to shame. He is constantly in the thick of every House/Clan and DJB event out there. If he doesn’t place you can bet he still put in a ton of effort, trust me i know. I was on his Battleplan team for the Clan event Desperate Measures a event he did finished in 3rd place overall. Then again taking 2nd place in the most recent House Event Suspicion on Solyiat, Tarvitz continually puts his all into every event he can.
As if events was the only thing Tarvitz was good for, nope not in the least at all. After months of research, rewrites, blood sweat and tears Tarvitz completed the biggest addition to Hoth canon to date! He created a 21 page wiki article Notable Fauna: Strokera which single handedly populated a major continent on our new world!
Tarvitz also compiles the entire member achievements and formats it for my reports. He has done this every month I have been in leadership. He never once complains when I ask him if he can do it and in fact he always completes the task faster than any deadline I give him. He is one of the sole reasons I can get my reports out on time each month.
There is so much more I can say but I’ll let others chime in as well but at the end of the day, my dear friend you amaze me with the dedication and hard work you put into this club. You are always there for me or anyone in the Clan that needs help and I more than appreciate everything you do for Hoth and the Clan as a whole!
So congratulations on your very first and not last Grand Cross!!!
I am proud to present Alara Deathbane a Grand Cross Cross for her exemplary efforts as a role model for both her House and Clan. There are few members that work as diligently or as hard as Alara. She is someone that our members should - and do - look up to.
Since her last recognition, Alara has participated in 40 competitions, organized 19 competitions, submitted 7 PVP Matches, penned 3 Fiction Activities (2711 words!), passed 4 Shadow Academy courses, and gained 2 Dark Side Degrees. In that same time, she has collected numerous awards: 7 Crescents (1 Cr-R, 1 Cr-A, 4 Cr-S, 1 Cr-T), 16 Clusters of Fire, 5 Clusters of Ice, and 24 Clusters of Graphite. She has also held the position of Aedile before transition to the role of Quaestor of House Excidium. Her efforts as a leader continue to impress as both an individual consumer of activity and a high-level producer of content that excites our membership. This includes two House Fiction Updates that total well over ten pages: The Empty Chalice and Starving Gods.
Keep up the effort, kiddo. You are a wonder to watch at work and I anticipate even greater things from you in the future. Very proud of your achievements.

Exceptionally active both in terms of her own activity record and her contribution to the clan leadership, Alara is everything we hoped she would be when she joined the summit team. She brings with her an excellent combination of work rate and pragmatism, and has done a great job of organising her house and her leadership team.
Her recent creation of a House Excidium Leadership Calendar, which contains all the major events, reporting days, competitions, project deadlines, etc. for the house and its subunits outlines her organised approach to leadership. Furthermore, Alara never forgets her members and is very quick to recognise those who deserve it.
When Alara joined the clan and made her way through the journeyman ranks everyone spoke about how she would be a future leader of the clan. She has surpassed all expectations. Thanks for everything you do for us.
Calindra has obtained 2 Ruby Crescents, 3 Scrolls of Foundation, 7 Clusters of Ice, and 8 Clusters of Fire for competitions and participation. She’s also participated in a total of 12 competitions and created 1 herself. Congrats!
