While Lilith will be writing the primary recommendation, I feel like I need to write something about this amazing person. Aul is a boss. I’m proud to say he’s one of the most capable members of Clan Naga Sadow. Even though he is going through a terrible phase at work, he has still been able to participate in Clan happenings. When he does, he makes sure to do it properly. His placement/participation ratio is incredible, and I am extremely happy to have a member like this in House Shar Dakhan.
Since his last promotion, Aul has served his House for a total of four months; Two months as BTL of Devil's Shroud and two months as Aedile of HSD. During his time as Aedile, he was the main organizer of Project S.P.E.C.I.A.L., a series of competitions that kind of shaped our view of what competitions should look like. Project S.P.E.C.I.A.L. had 16 individual participants, which is an amazing accomplishment.
Another thing I'd like to point out is that he has not missed a single Clan event since joining the Brotherhood.
Mystic Aul Celsus has been in the Dark Jedi Brotherhood since February 6, 2016. His last promotion to Mystic was on August 11, 2016. Aul has proven to be very dedicated to the Brotherhood, participating in competitions and helping out on projects as well as holding two different Summit positions.
Aul is active in Telegram as much as his real life, at the moment, permits. He is always pleasant in his dealings with all.
Since Aul was last elevated in rank to Mystic, he applied for and was chosen to be the Devil’s Shroud Battleteam Leader and then later promoted to Aedile of House Shar Dakhan. Aul held each of these positions for two months before he was forced to step down due to real life interference. While holding these positions, he was always accessible to his team members and was a good leader for the house. When I was chosen to become the Battleteam leader in his place, he contacted me with an offer of help anytime I needed it, ensuring that the transition was smooth.
Since his last promotion, he has competed in forty-four competitions. His last competition award was on February 27th of this year, where he took third place in the Who’s That Sadowan #2 comp earning himself a Crescent with an Emerald Star. Aul has also organized ten competitions and co-organized six more. He has participated in two fiction competitions writing a total of 930 words. Since his last promotion Aul has earned a total of fourteen crescents, three ruby, three Amethyst, three Sapphire, and five Emerald.
Aul has also earned two Pendants of Blood, thirty Clusters of Fire, six Clusters of Ice, three Clusters of Earth, and three Clusters of Graphite. His last merit award happened on January 18th of 2017 earning himself a Steel Cross for his activity and overall service to the club.
He has also passed one Shadow Academy course.
Since Aul joined the DJB a little over a year ago he has been such a wonderful asset to Clan Naga Sadow, House Shar Dakhan, and Devil’s Shroud Battleteam. I am honored to have been asked to write his recommendation for his promotion from Mystic to Savant.
Since his last promotion, 3 years ago, Savant Kah Manet aka Samael, has participated in a total of 115 competitions including 10 container competitions, from fiction to regular and gaming competitions. Not only did he compete he did pretty well for himself bagging in no less than 36 Crescents of various types. As a gamer he earned 516 Clusters of Fire, 58 Clusters of Earh and 6 Pendants of Blood. As writer he received an impressive 45 Clusters of Ice for 23 fiction activities with 13243 written words and 3 run on posts with 2227 words. In addition of all of that he has earned 1 Legion of the Scholar, 6 Seals of the Crusader, 10 Seals of Revelation and 2 Clusters of Graphite, and has even passed 4 Shadow Academy coursed and even graded one and helped out the Shadow Academy for which he received 2 Scrolls of Foundation.
In the last 3 years he has held numerous leadership position, he was a Battleteam leader for 5 separate times for a total of 1 year and 3 months. He was Aedile of Satele Shan for 4 months, Rollmaster of Odan-Urr for 3 months and ACC judge for another 3 months before settling down into his current position of First Quaestor of the newly created House Liath of Clan Tarentum, a position which he has held for 2 months now. As a leader he has organized no less than 24 competitions and co-organized 4. He has mentored 2 great members of the Club, Turel Sorenn and Jalen Ramz, to the rank of Knight and has recruited 3 more members for which he has received 3 Scrolls of Indoctrination.
Since his last promotion, Kah Manet, has earned 1 Grand Cross and three Steel Crosses. His easy going personality, dark humor and drive to lead other to greatness makes him a perfect leader for Tarentum and since he became Quaestor of Liath his activity has been great, driving forward the House and its members. We wish to thank Kah Manet for his continued activity in Tarentum and the DB with a well deserved promotion. Congratulations on your promotion, Seer Kah Manet!

Ashael Blackstar has done everything in his power to move through the ranks as fast and in the most efficient ways possible. His Prometheus report says it all but to point out some highlights, He passed 54 SA courses earning himself 5 Degrees, participated in 31 comps, earning himself 1 Ruby, 2 Emerald and 2 Topaz Crescents. Which are impressive numbers all by themselves but the most important and most valuable things Ashael brings to the DJB is his spirit.
He normally can be found in clan or house telegram chat giving advice, promoting comps, discussing and creating ideas with the other member's of the House and clan. He devotion and drive inspired me to go back and finish the courses I needed to earn my Dark Sage in combat. So that alone I must thank him for.
Besides all this Ashael busted his ass to get through the NOV and JM ranks to get to this point. As his master he made life very easy for me by being proactive and always looking to complete not only the current checklist he was on but always keep his eye on the ultimate prize, Knighthood.
This is exactly where we are today, Ashael Blackstar as accomplished every checklist item and then some. He is not only a model student but he has become a valued member of not only House Hoth and Clan Odan-Urr but the entire DJB as a whole.
Ashael I believe you will have a long,, bright future in the DJB and I was honored to not only bring you into the club but also guide you to this moment. Congratulations Knight Ashael Blackstar, you earned this!

It has been simply astounding to watch the implacable advance of Ashael Blackstar through the ranks of the Journeymen. His tenacity and willpower are a testament to his spirit. A spirit that should be present in all, but is only in few anymore.
Since his joining, Ashael has inundated my inbox with completion of both courses and participation or creation of competitions. His entire time in Hoth has been a not to see and I feel that he will go far indeed. These are the members that make our time as leaders worth it. These are the members we look for and enjoy. Those precious few new members that are active and an absolute joy to deal with. Ashael is a friend to those that talk to him and always ready to help if he is able.
Of all the awards and promotions leaders can give, I feel this one is the most important. It signifies that a member has completed those tasks laid out and gives them the ability to pick their own paths from this point forward. This promotion means they have proven their ability to work. Which is imperative to attain later ranks.
This is a member that has been supremely active at every chance. He is more than ready to take his final step into that of Knighthood. I join my voice with others who state his readiness.
Congratulations, Ashael! You have earned this many times over. I look forward to seeing more from you after this.

One of the greatest pleasures of being a leader in the Dark Brotherhood is being a part of member awards and promotions, particularly the step into Knighthood. Completing the tasks to become a Knight achieves far more than any simple promotion, it is a statement of conviction - Through impressive and consistent effort Ashael has shown himself to be a grand addition to Clan Odan-Urr, both our Rollmaster and his Master have expressed their pride in having a member who has made their jobs easy and I am similarly proud to be able to chime in with only praise for our new Knight.
Ashael, you have completed the steps to Knighthood and a new path lies before you and I can safely say that if you continue to be as impressive a member as you are now we will find ourselves writing your next promotion in the near future and that is something I look forward to being a part of.
Many congratulations on a very well-deserved promotion, I cannot wait to see what you get up to next!

Ashael Blackstar has been the sort of student a master dreams of: a self-starter, a flurry of activity, and a keen eye on the ultimate prize. Knight is a very special rank that everyone remembers. Not only do you get your own lightsaber, but it shows that you have proven yourself as a member in the Clan. The way Ashael went about achieving this rank is nothing less than superb, and I think it really speaks to his character and dedication. You're awesome!
As his Rollmaster, he makes my job easy and that deserves a well earned congratz. He has more than earned this rank and I look forward to his adventures as an Equite. Congratz!!!!

Have been awarded 20 Clusters of Earth (A Cluster of Fire counts as two Clusters of Earth)
Join Telegram or IRC, and visit Clan Channel
Participate in 5 competitions
Pass the Dark Brotherhood Basics Shadow Academy Course
I will continue to watch your progress, Fadas Dealan-De, but my direct intervention in your promotions must come to an end.
Tahiri has been working incredibly hard since her last recognition about a month ago. She earned three crescents from 21 different competitions, 20 Clusters of Fire, 9 Clusters of Earth, and a Legion of the Scholar. She successfully mentored her apprentice T'Calla Kytana to Knighthood. She participated in 6 PvP matches.
Since her last promotion in August she has participated in an impressive 133 competitions earning some of every type of crescent, every kind of cluster, a Dark Cross and an Anteian Cross, among others. Despite not holding an official leadership position she has organized 10 competitions.
In addition to participation and awards, Tahiri is a constant presence on Telegram. She is always positive and friendly with her Clanmates and has become a talented and experienced role model in her Clan. We are delighted to have her and proud to recommend her elevation into the Equites.
Tahiri is one of Tarentum's best! She is a passionate about Tarentum and we love her for that. Although she isn't in an official leadership position, through her skills in organizing competitions and helping people out she has become a strong cog that allows Tarentum to work flawlessly. I think her work goes beyond the rank of Knight and I think it's time for her to ascend into the Equites ranks where I know she will shine even more. Congratulations, Tahiri!

It has barely been a month since Tahiri Drakon Night-Thorn was last acknowledged. In that time she has participated in 21 different competitions and through those competitions earned a Crescent with a Sapphire Star, 2 Crescents with Topaz Stars, 20 Clusters of Fire, 9 Clusters of Earth and a Legion of the Scholar. Not to mention her recent Scroll of Indoctrination for her work mentoring T’Calla Kytana. But competitions aren’t the only place that Tahiri shines. She is an active gamer having participated in 6 PvP matches in the last month alone. Oh and she’s a constant presence on both the main site posting comments, but is always there on telegram to offer her thoughts and encouragement.
For her outstanding activity and overall work I am proud to recommend the promotion of Knight Tahiri Drakon Night-Thorn. Well done my apprentice.
