Me, you have successfully completed the Trial of Identity and confirmed your e-mail address, for which you have earned the rank of Apprentice. While you may currently be on a shuttle to House Dinaari, I will continue to follow your progress with great interest.
After a brief character change that has been approved, Buio has returned to work and deserves a round of applause. After joining the Clan telegram channel and becoming a regular fixture of the Clan community, Buio set his sights on completing other tasks. He wrote 1500 words of approved character fiction, participated in 5 unique competitions, and reached Rank II in the Shadow Academy. This is a fantastic start, and I know there's more to come.
Congratulations, Buio. I'm excited to see what the future holds for you.
Tuq'uan has been hard at work getting things done in the Brotherood and deserves to be commended. He's taken a total of 13 non-essentials courses in the Shadow Academy, doing very well in all of them. This has enabled him to reach Rank 2 in the Shadow Academy society. He's also participated in several competitions and has shown a general dedidcation in learning about Fiction in the Brotherhood by getting a character sheet on file and writing over 1,500 words of fiction. Lastly, he's been a highly active member of the Plagueis Telegram community of late.
Congratulations on recieving this promotion and I am eager to see your future progress.

Heimdell Odinson, you have successfully completed the Trial of Identity and confirmed your e-mail address, for which you have earned the rank of Apprentice. While you may currently be on a shuttle to House Galeres, I will continue to follow your progress with great interest.
Erik has spent the required fourteen days at the rank of Neophyte. While most Neophytes make sure that they have enough "credits" to move up, Erik has blown the list right it of the water.
He has shown his love for the shadow academy by taking and passing twenty one classes and earning two degrees since his last promotion.
Erik has also competed in four competitions one of which was a fiction where he wrote nine hundred and sixty eight words. He has earned one sapphire star, one cluster of ice, and two clusters of graphite. All of his hard work even netted him a Dark Cross.
I have been assigned as his master and I couldn't be more proud at all of his diligent work and progress, therefore I'm requesting that he be promoted with all haste to the level of Acolyte.
It is a delight when a new member takes themselves to task. I have been impressed with the way that Erik has jumped in with Pirates of Aeotheran and has toppled course after course in the Shadow Academy in short order. The Crescents and the Dark Cross he has earned have attested to the fruits of his efforts, and if he keeps up his work I have no doubt they will prove to be a mere prelude to greater heights and excellence. Congrats, Acolyte on your promotion. I look forward to seeing your next achievements, Erik.
Since joining us here Erik has gone above and beyond in what he has achieved. He introduced himself to me and immediately asked questions about our House Competition Pirates of the Aeotheran. This interest earned him two first place wins for the first half of the competition. I would be remiss if I didn't put something in saying how proud I am of Erik and can't wait to see what he accomplishes in the future.
Bobulous, you have successfully completed the Trial of Identity and confirmed your e-mail address, for which you have earned the rank of Apprentice. While you may currently be on a shuttle to Battle Team Shadow Gate, I will continue to follow your progress with great interest.
In all the years I’ve known and worked with Xantros the biggest standout attribute he has, is his inhuman ability to do so many things without burning out. Day in and day out he pushes himself, and those around him to be better. It is his unyielding drive to participate, develop, and better this club is the greatest factor a member could have, and for that he deserves to once again be recognized for his efforts.
Since his last promotion Xantros has been responsible for generating 17 different competitions, many on a DJB wide scale. He has gone on to participate in 149 different competitions. He has passed 9 different SA exams, and earned both the Savant and Sage for Tactics degrees. He has 69 different fiction activities account for 56,080 words. This number doesn’t even include reports, emails, and documentation Xantros has worked on in multiple functions of the club. Xantros has earned 2 Grand Crosses, 1 Steel Cross, 1 Anteian Cross, 6 Ruby Stars, 12 Amethyst Stars, 11 Sapphire Stars, 6 Emerald Stars, 2 Topaz Stars, 1 Quartz Star, 1 Cluster of Fire, 144 Clusters of Ice, 15 Clusters of Earth, 13 Scrolls of Foundation, 1 Legion of the Scholar, and a Seal of Loyalty.
Beyond this activity, Xantros served nearly 14 months as a Shadow Academy Professor, grading some 67 different exams. Xantros has also served an additional 8 months as the Rollmaster in Clan Odan Urr. Since his return to Scholae Palatinae in March, he has submitted multiple documents to the summit, including his own personal outline of development, articles to help better the skills of the members, and an alternate system of recording and reporting the history of the clan so new members would learn it easier.
Now, nearly 17 months since his elevation to Equite 3, I am honored to recommend his advancement to Equite 4. Xantros you remain one hell of a member, leader, and friend. Congratulations! Drinks are on you!
While others have briefly mentioned it, as Headmaster I wanted to lend my voice to those requesting Xantros' promotion due to his work in the service of the Shadow Academy. Since his last promotion, Xantros served as a Professor for over a year and graded 67 courses with an average grading time of fifteen hours. That's of course below are maximum grading time of twenty-four hours, but it's deceptively long; you see, many of the exams Xantros marked were the fairly involved Leadership courses.
The reason he was one of the primary graders on those courses is another reason he is deserving of recognition - many of the Leadership courses we currently have on offer came from him. He combined his real world knowledge with his experience in the DJB to create courses aimed at assisting neophyte leaders with how to run their units. Never one to rest on his laurels, Xantros has worked to keep these courses updated and offer suggestions for new ones. This is truly the mark of someone dedicated to making this club a better place, something that is the true hallmark of an EQ4.

Xantros is a whirlwind of activity and is always happy to participate in any of the activities the club has to offer, as demonstrated by his incredible competition record of 151 competitions entered since his last promotion (the numbers on this may be inconsistent across recommendations because he keeps doing more stuff as we collate recommendations). He is always active, always happy to come up with new ideas to help the clan, and constantly active on the telegram channels, where he is an integral part of the community of both CSP and COU. Xantros' numbers on the promotion assessment are ridiculously high across the board, especially combined with his work as Shadow Academy Professor and as Rollmaster.
Augur Elincia Rei, 2017-05-14 11:42:07 +0100
Xantros is a model leader who without question enriched COU by his presence both as a regular member and our Rollmaster. As we recorded in his Steel Cross and Grand Cross, Xantros helped revamp our master-student program, found the Zireal battleteam, wrote an 18 page writing guide for our members and a 41 page leadership training program. He has most certainly left his mark on COU. Xantros also was and continues to be a central presence in our community, even though he has returned to his home clan of CSP he still continues to be active in the COU channel and reach back to update the documents he left us and give advice to his successor RMs. His individual activity also puts him in the upper echelons of our member base, I don’t think I’ve seen a fiction competition ran by the clan that he did not participate in.
I can think of few others who deserve an elevation to the pinnacle Equite rank more. Congrats my friend and thank you for all that you do! You make every clan you are in and the Brotherhood itself a better place.

Advancement in the Equite ranks requires several vital elements: the ability to lead, the ability to produce content, and the ability to consume content. And, honestly, I have not seen someone move as fluidly between all three of these traits as Xantros. For his considerable dedication, effort, and leadership, I am honored to include my name amongst those that recommend him to the pinnacle of Equite IV.
Assuredly, others will elaborate on his leadership qualities and the tasking required to hold those positions. Others will rave about his activity and how he generates competitions for others to participate... only to have that out shown by his own illustrious participation record. Yet, it is his attitude, for me that is the cornerstone to his elevation to the next rank. Rarely, have I met a member that naturally understands that their activity is the lifeblood of our club (and that it doesn't take a whole lot of effort to be a great member). My first conversation with Xantros was him - humbly - stating that he just does his best to make time for one or two events a week. And when he falls behind, he tries to make it up the next week, because he understands that his fellow members are counting on him to submit to their competitions.
He does not brag about his activity, but uses it as a means to encourage others to do better, try new things, meet their own potential. He is always upbeat, providing insight that is constructive or presents steps to lessen a member's burden (so they can have more fun, be more active). This unmeasurable ability to connect with others, get the best out of them, and not be a focus for drama is essential for advancement to the final rank of the Equites. And it will be a pivotal, necessary quality if he ever embarks on the quest of attaining Elder.
Thank you for your peer leadership to our younger members. Thank you for continuing to participate and drive the process for others. Thank you... for a million other things I cannot highlight in a single recommendation. I am honored to see you elevated and eagerly anticipate what you will do next.

Xantros has been a great delight to have with us here in Clan Scholae Palatinae! Since getting to know him, I have discovered not only a great friend but a great leader. Since January 1st of this year alone, Xantros has completed 87 competitions, has completed 4 ACC battles, and has written 33240 words of fiction**; *not including any editing/proofreading he has offered for other members or worksheets he has created. * He has shared two workbooks with the leadership of CSP to provide techniques and pointers to members (consisting of at least 10 pages each!). Way to go Xantros. I am so proud and inspired by your tenacity and your dedication to the Brotherhood. Here's to the future!
Today I am pleased to recommend that Jacob, aka Caesar, be advanced on to the rank of Equite 3. Breaking past Equite 2 can be a difficult task, and Jacob has shown he has the chops to continue his long and capable DJB career. The ever active and ever analysing Jacob has had nearly two years of dedicated activity since reaching Equite 2, and been a great member to continue to get to know better and work with.
I first was introduced to Jacob while he was a member of Clan Tarentum. He contacted me inquiring about bolstering gaming events between the different clans of the club. This contact grew until eventually he and Delak began to work side-by-side to get a inter-clan Battle Team event, with Team Grey Wolf and Team Shadow Guard. This event was a well planned and execute venture from both sides, one I know the members who participated in had a great deal of fun doing. When he decided to change things up and transfer in to Scholae Palatinae, it was an easy move, with so many of our members already knowing who he was. We were grateful to receive such a passionate member, and one who was so consistently looking for ways to better relationships and activity between all members of the club.
Beyond my interactions with him while he was serving as a BTL in Tarentum, Jacob’s activity record shows his persistent drive to do so much in this club. He is currently sitting at some 67 participated competitions, 2 SA exams, 1 PvP Match, 51 PvE matches, and 10 fiction activities clocking in at 4801 total words. He has earned a Steel Cross, 2 Anteian Crosses, 2 Diamond Stars, 2 Ruby Stars, 2 Amethyst Stars, 5 Sapphire Stars, 4 Emerald Stars, 3 Topaz Stars, 7 PoBs, 440 Clusters of Fire, 22 Clusters of Earth, 10 Clusters of Ice, 1 Scroll of Indoctrination, and 1 Seal of Loyalty.
Many Congratulations Jacob on a promotion well earned! Drinks are on you!
Savant Jacob or Caesar as he was know in Clan Tarentum has been a good Battleteam leader for the Grey Wolf, the BT he has started and nurtured into the unit that it is today. Grey Wolf was the first Grey unit of Tarentum. With the help of Caesar, Grey Wolf gave numerous leaders including: Altheseus Levathan, Lucifer Scorpio Romanov, blackhawk and Ranarr Kul. This unit also helped in the formation of Tarentum's newest house: Liath. As a BTL, Jacob, was a regular reporter, he maintained constant presence on Telegram and via email, and he regularly organized competitions not only for Grey Wolf but for the Clan and the club as well. He has even made alliances outside the Clan with other battleteams such as Shadow Guard BT of Clan Scholae Palatinae. These alliances have turned into successful co-op competitions like the New Alliances.
His personal activity was always high and even though his time and access to computer was limited due to his RL job he gave it the best he could. He's a great guy and I'm honored to recommend him for this promotion. Congratulations!
Warlord Frosty Romanae Tarentae, 2017-05-17 07:30:15 +0100
Jacob is a member that first became known to CSP when he, alongside Delak, organised an interclan battleteam event, New Alliances, between battleteams Shadow Guard and Grey Wolves. New Alliances was a full scale event of 8 competitions and a backstory, available here: https://www.darkjedibrotherhood.com/competitions/9646 which was a major success, as evidenced by the 15 unique participants from members of the two battleteams eligible to compete.
We are happy to have Jacob in our ranks, and are thankful for what he has done for the clan both before and after his transfer from Tarentum.
Augur Elincia Rei, 2017-05-14 12:01:08 +0100
When discussing the beginnings of the battleteam Crucesignatis Imperialis, Jacob was concise and exact with what he wanted and expected. And although he had left due to RL issues, he has returned as equally interested as he was before he had to leave. It's this dedication and determination that I love seeing in members. I won't say more than what's been said above, but Jacob is a standout member who served his Clan for 11 months as a battleteam leader. He deserves this promotion to EQ3.
Battleteam Leader of Crucesignatis Imperialis, Dek Ironius II
Commander Dek Ironius II, 2017-05-14 08:19:27 +0100
Caesar has always been active on Telegram, and was passionate about being the best possible version of himself in Tarentum. We wish him well, and Tarentum is happy to support CSP in their efforts to have him promoted. Whether going by Caesar, Potus, Jacob, or otherwise, I'm certain he is continuing to be a valuable member to them.
Since his last promotion, Jacob has organised 16 competitions, co-hosted a further 10, participated in 67 competitions and placed in 18 of them. Jacob has earned 2 diamond, 2 ruby, 2 amethyst, 5 sapphire, 4 emerald, and 3 topaz. Jacob has also earned 7 pob, 440 cfs, 10 ci, 22 ce, 1 steel cross, 2 anteian, a scroll of indoctrination and a seal of loyalty. Jacob has also passed the trial of acquisition and the gray jedi core exams. But these are just the efforts of a singular, active members, these do not show he is ready for the senior ranks of the equites.
For over 11 months, Jacob was the active leader of Clan Tarentum’s battle team named Grey Wolves. He sent out reports, engaged with the team members and made sure there was enough things for them to do.
It’s my impression that Jacob is ready to be named an EQ3.
