I am proud to nominate Ulfsark for elevation within the Equite ranks to Equite II. He has demonstrated the unique ability to maintain a high level of activity. And it does not go unnoticed or underappreciated. Thank you for representing both House Imperium and Clan Scholae Palatinae to the Brotherhood.
Since his last elevation on 24/12/2015, Ulfsark has participated in 68 competitions, submitted 8 PvP Matches, and passed 1 Shadow Academy course. In that same time, Ulfsark has accumulated numerous awards: 2 Anteian Crosses, 1 Dark Cross, 3 Crescents (1 Cr-R, 2 Cr-S), 39 Clusters of Fire, and 235 Clusters of Earth. Ulf dominates the newly launched Mobile Gaming platform from the FIST Office. Showing that - even if you are not near a computer - one can always be active and collect crescents and clusters by doing what they love: playing Star Wars games. Thank you for continuing your excellent string of activity since the New Year. It is not unnoticed or unappreciated!

Uflsark continues his endless burn of activity forward. His consistent and unwavering efforts and loyalty deserve to be recognized. Through 62 different competitions big and small, multiple crescents won, and gaming clusters earned, Ulfsark continues to be a member I know I will see time and time again as an active member. Ulfsark is a flame I know will continue to burn for a long time to come.
Drama-free and consistent can be in short supply here in this club, and Ulfsark delivers on both counts. His dignified and continuing activity is a pillar of example for all members of the club. He has more than shown the dedication and strong efforts that mark worthy Equite rank members. Congratulations on Equite II Ulfsark! Drinks are on you!
Ulfsark has been at the rank of Equite 1 for over a year now and since that time he has maintained a consistent and high level of activity, entering a total of 61 competitions, primarily in the FIST’s gaming competitions, from which he has accrued well over 200 Clusters of Earth. Gaming has long been a weak spot in the clan, and it’s great to have a member like Ulfsark who can maintain a consistent presence in this area for such a long period of time.
For a long record of consistent, high level participation, it is time for Ulsark to take one more step up the rank ladder. We’re very happy to have him among our ranks and keen to follow his further progression.

It is my immense pleasure to present Alara Deathbane for elevation to the rank of Equite II today. She had demonstrated an unnatural determination as both a member and a leader to improve our club: the member experience, the rich history & lore, the culture of House Excidium and Clan Scholae Palatinae. For these herculean efforts, I am honored to see her rise through the ranks.
Since her last elevation, Alara has participated in 62 competitions, (co)organized 21 competitions, submitted 1 PvP Match, logged 4 PvE Matches, finished 4 ACC Battles, penned 11 Fiction Activities (21411 words!), posted 2 run-on segments (1453 words!), passed 24 Shadow Academy courses, and earned 3 Dark Side Degrees. In addition, she has collected a myriad of awards: a Steel Cross, an Anteian Cross, 17 Crescents (2 Cr-D, 4 Cr-R, 2 Cr-A, 5 Cr-S, 3 Cr-E, 1 Cr-Q), 2 Pendants of Blood, 8 Clusters of Fire, 58 Clusters of Ice, 23 Clusters of Graphite, and 1 Legion of the Scholar.
She has also served dutifully as the Aedile of House Excidium for 2 months. There is no better student than Alara. She has been vital in restructuring how competitions are ran in Scholae Palatinae; ensuring that Battle Team, House, and Clan are on schedule, in abundance, and submitted prior to the month begins. She has assisted Tacitus Athanasius with their March & April execution (brainstorming, suggestions, tips, etc) of competitions, ran the House competitions (solo), and provided Clan-wide events (graphics, fiction, character development). She has come into her own as a producer of content for her people. Additionally, she has eagerly embraced leadership - providing unit reports, e-mail updates (as competitions close/open/near a deadline), submitting recommendations (or supporting recommendations), researching/proposal/implementation of ideas for the fictional direction/development of the House (Fiction Updates, new Battle Team planning, planned Wiki releases, etc). She has also been the glue holding our House together as we transition to new leadership - something that no amount of crescents, clusters, or medals can repay (nor does she expect any in return for being there for her House - nay - her family).
Alara, I am extremely blessed to have been paired with you as House Excidium’s QUA-AED, one-two punch, dastardly duo of destruction… you get the idea… you are my mentee and I could not be happier to see you succeed.

We are very lucky and proud to have Alara in the ranks of Scholae Palatinae. She was clearly a future leader here as soon as she joined the club and it’s great to see that potential being realised with her joining the summit as an Aedile. The numbers are clear to see in the recommendations above, and Alara brings a community contribution second to none.
Congratulations Alara! We’re all looking forward to seeing your climb further up the ranks!

When Alara first joined, many of us knew she had the potential to go far. Today I get to further confirm everyone’s original thoughts by her continued demonstration of living up to that potential. Both as a hard hitting member, and as a learning leader, Alara has shown tremendous growth, dedication, and class these last few months.
As a member its very easy to see how her efforts have tallied up. 62 total competitions participated in. Crescents earned of every level. A Steel Cross, An Anteian Cross, and a multitude of clusters and pendants. 4 ACC matches, 24 SA courses, 3 degrees. This consistent high quality work is exactly the kind of activity we love to see from our established members, and Alara is doing a brilliant job of showing everyone how to live that DJB life.
As a leader, Alara has shown a natural talent for it over the last 2 months as Aedile for Excidium. She is in constant contact with her members, helping them with the issues that arise, providing feedback, and making sure everyone always knows about the many many competitions being run. These include several of her own, having organized 15, and co-organized 6 since reaching EQ1.
All in all, Alara remains an awesome member, and I couldn’t be more thrilled about recommending her advancement on to EQ2. Congratulations Alara! Drinks are on you!
No words can describe how proud I am to see my friend, my former Sergeant, and my present Aedile rise up to Equite 2. Alara Deathbane has once again proven herself to be a blazing member in CSP and Excidium. Her outstanding work and dedication hasn’t gone unnoticed. She has been a constant presence when discussing the House’s development, plans for TA and a new Battle Team, and helping unit members advance in the DJB. Alara has also been a regular visitor to her former Battle Team, making sure that everyone is working hard while having fun at the same time as she does her best to motivate anyone who is struggling. She has released many competitions for everyone to participate in, and had partaken in many comps as well while placing in a few. All her efforts have led to Alara receiving her very first Steel Cross, and has ultimately led her to a very well-deserved promotion to Equite 2. As always, she continue to serve as a flaming beacon to others, setting a great example as a leader and a dedicated member of CSP and Excidium. A huge congratulations to you, Alara! May you continue to amaze everyone with all you do.

I had the honor of mentoring Antonai ‘PaRapRappa’ Lanfear to the rank of Dark Jedi Knight. Today, I have the unique privilege of elevating him to the rank of Equite I - a fully recognized member of the Brotherhood - where he will continue writing his own legacy. Continue your hard work as an Equite of House Excidium and Clan Scholae Palatinae!
Since his last elevation, PaRapRappa has participated in 43 competitions, logged 25 PvE Activities, penned 3 Fiction Activities (389 words!), passed 11 Shadow Academy courses, and earned 1 Dark Side Degree. In that same time, he has collected several awards: an Anteian Cross, 10 Crescents (1 Cr-A, 4 Cr-S, 2 Cr-E, 2 Cr-T, 1 Cr-Q), 4 Pendants of Blood, 154 Clusters of Fire, 1 Cluster of Ice, 45 Clusters of Earth. Additionally, Antonai attended Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017 and assisted in sharing the magic of the convention Show Floor and Cosplay with other members through a VOICE sponsored broadcast on Telegram. This illustrates a vital aspect of what it means to be an Equite; being in service to others without expectation for reward.
I am truly inspired by your continued activity and dedication, PaRapRappa. You have truly grasped the meaning of being a consumer of content and supporting your fellow members through group conversations since your last elevation. I hope that the magic of Star Wars, and this club, keeps you going all the way through the next rank.

One of the most exciting moments as a leader is being able to witness a member continue to run full blast after reaching Knighthood. The training wheels come off, the closely watched and structured means to advance go away, and they can experience the club in its full epicness. Antonai Lanfear has taken that challenge in stride, and has proven himself ready to advance on to the Equite ranks. With participation in 43 different competitions, and activity across the spectrum of what is offered in the club, “PaRapRappa” has clearly shown the dedication and efforts befitting an Equite of this club. Congratulations! Drinks are on you!
Antonai ‘PaRapRappa’ Lanfear has worked diligently and magnificently at developing his character and those around him in several ways. He has completed 11 courses in the Shadow Academy, earning his place not only in my emails but also in a Dark Side degree. He has been a high contender in competitions, putting himself at a count of 43 completed! It’s an honor to recommend you for the rank of EQ1. Congratulations Antonai! Here’s to your future.
Since his last promotion Texas as co-organized 2 competitions, participated in 10 competitions, completed 5 Shadow Academy course, 1 PvP match, and has raised his rank in the Shadow Academy to SA II. In addition to that he has served in his current rank for a period of 40 days. It is for these momentous achievements that I believe Texas has earned himself a promotion to the rank of Courier.
Taranae Rhode has always been one of the most valuable members of Clan Plagueis, starting when she joined our ranks and continuing through the present day. She has been a consistently active member and leader within our Clan, stacking up competition entries and mentoring successes along the way with reckless abandon. There are very, very few who have been the sort of dynamos for Clan Plagueis that she has, especially in the time since her last elevation. Her consistent excellence is best exemplified by her performance in our recently completed The Enemy Below event where she completed all 24 events and finished 8th overall in the entire Clan, taking placements in 3 of those events.
As an individual competitor, Taranae is often second to none. Since her elevation to Battlemaster, Taranae has entered a staggering 142 competitions and has placed in an amazing 33 of them. Her placements have earned her the following crescents: 1 Diamond, 2 Ruby, 8 Amethyst, 12 Sapphire, 5 emerald, and 5 topaz. Always down for some gaming, she has reported 22 PvP matches and 35 PvE activities to earn herself 79 Clusters of Fire, 153 Clusters of Earth, and 3 Pendants of Blood. She has also completed 18 fiction activities (totalling 9,643 words) and 2 ACC battles on her way to securing 22 Clusters of Ice. Additionally, as one of Plagueis's constant forces in the realm of Graphics, she has already earned 9 of the new Clusters of Graphite.
Looking beyond her specific individual accomplishments, Taranae has acquitted herself very well as both a leader and mentor. In her role as a direct mentor, Taranae recruited Kyle to earn herself a Scroll of Indoctrination (overall her 8th!). Additionally, she helped guide Kul'tak Drol to the rank of Knight and brought home a Scroll of the Master. Kul'tak has gone on to become a solid rock of activity, due in no small part to Taranae's help. On the leadership front, Taranae has been an invaluable part of Clan Plagueis's summit. Her 5 months of service as House Ajunta Pall Aedile helped lead her House to a great finish during our Vendetta against Odan-Urr, and after that she moved on to Quaestor of House Karness Muur and for the following four months continued to build on the positive trajectory the unit was on. She filed all of her monthly reports on time and with gusto, with 11 news posts to her name. She also organized 13 competitions and co-organized an additional 13 more, including her annual Brotherood-wide Pazaak tournament. Finally, she was instrumental in helping set up The Circle, a new Battleteam for Plagueis that was focused on helping guide new members through their initial experience in the Brotherhood. Her prior service as Rollmaster made her more than qualified, and the month she spent there helped set the policies and procedures that our BTL's use currently.
All told, Taranae has earned a Grand Cross and Seal of Loyalty for her continued excellence and contributions to both Clan Plagueis and the Brotherhood. As a tribute to her long time service and consistent dedication, it gives me great pleasure to submit Taranae Rhode's name for advancement to the rank of Equite 3, a well deserved elevation!

Kryy Vitaan has been a dependable member of Plagueis in his activity and presence without our Clan. Since his last promotion, Kryy has been there often for our Clan events while he's been on the roster. Six entries for the Plagueis Pro Bowl, 5 for the Winter Trials, and 2 for The Enemy Below. His constant level of activity has lead him to participation in 51 total competitions and earned him 14 crescents (1 Diamond, 2 Ruby, 6 Amethyst, 1 Sapphire, and 4 Emerald). On the gaming battlefields, Kryy has entered 7 PvE activities and 6 PvP matches to amass 69 Clusters of Fire, 75 Clusters of Earth, and 1 Pendant of Blood. Additionally, in the realm of fiction he has contributed 3 fiction activities for 3,887 words and earned himself 8 clusters of Ice. Kryy has even organized two competitions, both providing Brotherhood wide activity.
Kryy has always been a joy to have in Clan Plagueis, and I wish him luck as he marches up through the ranks in the future. Congratulations, and welcome to the Equite ranks!
Warlord Selika Roh di Plagia, 2017-04-16 06:25:59 +1000
Zuser has been a fixture in Plagueis for quite some time now. Going back to his last promotion (during the Dark Crusade), he's always been around and good for an entry or two whenever Plagueis needed him. He entered every round of the last four months of the Dark Crusade, with his seven entries helping contribute to a Plagueian victory. Fading Light, Restoration, the Plagueis Pro-Bowl, Winter Trials, and our most recent Enemy Below event, he's done them all. In total, since his last promotion, Zuser has participated in 45 competitions, earning 2 Novae (2 Gold and 1 Bronze) and 3 Crescents (1 each of Sapphire, Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald). His vendetta entries between the Crusade and Fading Light saw him earn 14 Seals of the Crusader. His fiction activity has generated 1,818 words of fiction and 1,184 words in his Run On posts, and he has earned 13 Clusters of Ice. He has earned 5 Clusters of Fire gaming and 2 Clusters of Graphite for his recent graphics work. His overall contributions to Clan Plagueis have been recognized on three separate occasions, earning him a trio of Dark Crosses.
Some people shoot up through the ranks, but Zuser was different. He is, instead, an example of one that persevered over a long period of time to eventually reach his goal. Congratulations, Zuser, and welcome to the ranks of the Equites.
