I honestly don't know how someone can do all the things that Arch does and still be considered sane. He's been a long-time member of Odan-Urr, is the current Exarch and Right Hand of Justice, all while putting up big numbers and burning through competitions in his spare time between work, family, and other projects.
In Odan-Urr, Arch's presence has always been more than welcome. He's always willing to guide and teach others, support the Clan and it’s endeavors and offers to do the little things that are often overlooked. For example, he recently went through our entire library of Clan fictions, sorted them in chronological order, and assigned them numbers to provide us with a more straightforward and organized catalog.
Recently, he played a significant role in planning for our Clan's reconstruction and drafting the document used to propose our new fictional direction and provide ideas for how we currently operate as a Summit. His insight, especially from an Ex-Consul's perspective, has dramatically improved how the Summit works by reducing waste and alleviating many of the issues of more bloated Summits. Additionally, while planning our new storyline, Arch contributed fresh ideas. While I can't provide details, as the story is unfolding, his experienced eyes on the project helped bring it all together.
Now for some numbers, since his last award, he's participated in 224 competitions earning himself 14 Crescents with Diamond Stars, 20 Crescents with Ruby Stars, 41 Crescents with Amethyst Stars, 36 Crescents with Sapphire Stars, 17 Crescents with Emerald Stars, 7 Crescents with Topaz Stars and 2 Crescents with Quartz Stars. Fiction wise he's written a total of 12,773 words in 2 ACC battles and 14 Fiction Activities, earning himself 39 Clusters of Ice. For gaming, he's gained 1 Pendant of Blood, 37 Clusters of Fire, and 4 Clusters of Earth in 13 Gaming Activities. He's also earned 3 Dark Side Scrolls, 1 Scroll of the Master, 11 Legion of the Scholar, and 1 Seal of Loyalty. For his efforts during the last RoS, Arch had full bin participation and earned 2 Gold Nova, 3 Silver Nova, 2 Bronze Nova, and 14 Seals of Enmity. He has also completed 7 Shadow Academy courses and earned 2 Degrees. While not only a consumer of competitions, Arch has also organized 41 competitions, many of those for our 10th Anniversary Event and as QUA of House Sunrider.
Arch, I can't say it enough. Thank you immensely for the effort you have put into this Clan and the Club as a whole. We wouldn't be where we are today if not for volunteering all your time and skills. You’ve more than earned this Ruby Scepter, Congratulations!
