Laethan (aka D'hak) has gone above and beyond the call of duty in spearheading the unsolicited, and amazingly detailed, compilation of Clan Arcona historical information, and the arrangement of same on its own website for easy review:

Laethan began this project of his own volition, and has steadily collected and built the archive linked above. Such dedication to one's Clan is commendable.

For these efforts in preserving the history of our Clan for future generations of Arconans, I wish to award Laethan Avarik a Grand Cross of the Dark Side.

Good service to Clan Exar Kun while serving as Quaestor. He has decided to leave us to devote more time to his real life, but has performed his duties admirably for CEK in these recent "eventful" times and I believe his efforts should be rewarded.

Primary reason

Nathan/Denath is kind of a wizard. He’s the kind of wizard that when given a task, simply goes about it like a whirlwind and then when it’s done, you’re left with the desired result of what you had asked for. While his primary focus became my official “Spreadsheet/Data Wizard” for CS 2.0, he was also engaged in every discussion we had about the content that would be going in and tried his hand at writing a handful of improvements.

One of the first things Denath did was create the “Corrected Feats” tab for the Feats 2.0 spreadsheet This involved combing through all existing feats in the database that had syntax, typos, and spelling errors (hey, Google Sheets doesn’t have spellcheck, sue us --CS 1.0 writers) and highlighting them for revision when I would manually go in and update all the Feats. The overall sheet he created, with breakdown, helped us map out which skills/powers lacked Feats, which contributed to us being able to create more Feats for more diversification of character. As with anything he created, Denath created tables, filters, text wrapping, and all the awesome things that made it easier for me to create, organize, and delegate tasks for moving the project forward. He proofed a lot of the syntax coding for the {brace} code for Force Powers, Feats, Skills and the Disciplines document. He color coded the Feats+Breakdown to help keep it organized, and imported data between sheets/tables using automagic-sorcery that I don’t know how he did it but just know that he made it work, and it’s awesome. He helped create two Feats that were added into the system, and penned out 11 Pre-Written Aspects that I was able to revise, lightly edit and add into the system. He penned out the first drafts of the 1-5 tier write ups for 18 Force Powers, which laid the groundwork for revision and editing down the line. He contributed to discussions about Feats and Force powers, along with critiquing and providing feedback on various content.

He also worked with Alora on creating the Species Bible Overview, pulling from the statistics provided by James. Denath helped pen the entries for 10 Races (Echani, Duros, Umbaran, Elomin, Epicanthix, Gungan, Iktotchi, Kaleesh, Sakiyan and contribution to the Miraluka box).

Denath Wiki-fied the Fore Powers, Skills, and Disciplines pages, utilizing Templates that were created by Terran Koul and Mav. This included creating a category for the Species images (Category:Images-Species) to make sure the Wiki folks didn't cross with us. He manually uploaded (since there is no bulk option) 53 species images to the WIki, including fair use and category tags with original image links (made by A’lora). He then continued to assist with debugging and keeping on top of edits that were required for post-launch maintenance. He created the bug tracker that I am using now to make sure that the whole of the CS Project is made as perfect (presentation wise, at least) as it can be.

All of this shows a certain kind of long-term loyalty to not himself, but the Brotherhood as a whole. For this, I believe that Denath is the MVP of the CS 2.0 project. I don’t think I would have made it happen without him. Thanks Denath for everything. I really appreciate it.
