Nobody is more deserving of a Grand Cross than Essik.
I have never seen a member contribute so much to not only his House and his Clan but to this Club. Essik is a good friend and a strong asset to this community (step off poachers he’s ours). Whether it's getting a conversation rolling by posting some of the most random stuff I’ve ever seen on Telegram to asking questions that make you think deeply about your characters, Essik is always starting and continuing chatter vital to bringing our members together.
He also is one of our strongest writers and one you always can anticipate will deliver a true work of art to any competition, wiki page or message he sends. This “Wikipedian of the Month”, whether due to passion or masochistic tendencies has delivered us over 7,000 words across both House and Clan pages including major original edits to Daleem, Pharos Station, the Kaist System, Planet Kaist, Trepus Mine, Solyiat, Severian Principate and the Dajorra-Yhi Concordant. Additionally, he has created and has been keeping up to date both ‘Quorahi’ and ‘The Fang’ pages containing approximately 5,000 and 5,900 words respectively. Lastly, he completed 275 minor edits for both clan, house, and DB level pages. These are often forgotten but are vital in the upkeep of an up to date wiki for the club. In summary, that equals out to 7,000 words of major edits, 10,900 words of original content, and 275 minor edits.
In addition to a massive amount of work to our wiki pages, and participating in 14 of our weekly community events, he has also earned himself a Dark Maven Degree, completed 5 SA courses, organized 5 competitions, and participated in 49 competitions that have earned him 3 Crescents with Diamond Stars, 5 Crescents with Ruby Stars, 10 Crescents with Amethyst Stars, 14 Crescents with Sapphire Stars, 5 Crescents with Emerald Stars, 1 Cluster of Fire, 72 Clusters of Ice, 8 Clusters of Earth, 21 Clusters of Graphite, 2 Dark Side Scrolls and 35,779 words of fiction.
Essik, with everything you do and everything you’ve done, we are honored to present you with this Grand Cross.
