Marick 'Wally' Tyris is without a doubt one of the hardest working members we have ever had the pleasure of working with. Since his promotion fifteen months ago, Wally has been tireless in his efforts to improve our fictional systems, overseeing numerous projects and updates to the Character Sheet System and the further development of our fictional enemies the Collective. Under Wally's guidance, the Voice office has released a new exam to ease members into their first character sheet, added new species to the selector, updated character creation guides and tools, and, in collaboration with other Dark Council offices, greatly expanded the fictional role and opportunities to members posed by our societies and other organizations. Wally has written half a dozen major fictional updates over the last year, along with editing every piece of major fiction that the Dark Council releases. He takes the lead on regular Story Group discussions and helps to shape our fictional direction on a daily basis. He's overseen numerous major competitions in that time span, including the Collective Chronicles that helped flush out our opponents, and was a major force in the Rite of Supremacy, managing not only three fiction competitions over the event, but also assisting on numerous "Miscellaneous" competitions, including the Knowledge is Power series and the Hero/Foil aspect competition. Wally regularly runs workshop and Inquisitor competitions for the Brotherhood as a whole, and is constantly improving members writing by offering detailed feedback. He takes every opportunity he can to help our members, such as when he assisted the Combat Master last June by acting as coach of one of the teams participating in the Coach's Corner ACC event. In addition to the mundane but incredibly important tasks such as 'just' keeping documentation updated, Wally has greatly expanded the resources available on the Wiki through numerous resources related to fiction, character sheets, and the Voice's office. It is for all of these reasons that we are happy to award Wally his first Diamond Sword.
