There's something wrong with the world today. I can't always put my finger on exactly what it is, but in the end, I know when something is wrong, and thankfully, I know exactly what it is that has me out of sorts right now.
I forgot to do something when Zoron resigned from Quaestor.
Now, normally I'm a pretty on the ball guy, something happens and I address it immediately. But I didn't in Zoron's case, because I was disappointed he had to resign. We all know how real life can make demands of our time, and we all know that it has to come first in comparison to the Brotherhood.. but that still didn't make me feel any better about his going, and because of that disappointment, I think I ignored my responsibilities to him.
The reason I was disappointed so badly when he left was pretty integral to my plans for the future of Taldryan. Like a doting mother I had his whole career path mapped out for him in my head, and because of that I spent a lot of time talking with him, and having him involved in every level of the Clan summit. His advice and insight became lynchpins of Taldryan's leadership, and I knew immediately that when he resigned, we'd all be worse off for it.
But that doesn't change any of the facts. During the past four months, Zoron has served with distinction as Quaestor of Ektrosis for three months, where he not only helped me plan the infant stages of Taldryan's current major competition, but also acted as a sounding board for me on any number of issues that faced the Clan. He helped guide the policies we're going to try to enact, and he's played a big part in guiding our path forward as a Clan. He did all this while still maintaining a great personal activity record, and hosting a goodly amount of competitions for both the Clan and the Brotherhood as a whole with his popular Sporcle series of events.
He did all these things while still being the leader of Taldryan's most active House, and while being one of Taldryan's most active members. As a Clan we preach that the foundation of leadership is one's own personal activity, and Zoron was a great champion of that ideal.
As such, it is my very great honour to award Kenath Zoron a Grand Cross of the Dark Side.
