I am honored to award my former student, Xan Phraz-Etar, with a Steel Cross. He has unwaveringly served Scholae Palatinae in many ways over the past many, many years. And not once has he asked for a single thing in return for his service - a truly selfless member of House Excidium and Clan Scholae Palatinae.
Since his last recognition, Xan has participated in 37 competitions, (co)organized 13 competitions, submitted 12 PvP Matches, logged 9 PvE Matches, passed 7 Shadow Academy courses, and earned 2 Dark Side Degrees. In that same time, he has collected a myriad of awards: 9 Crescents (1 Cr-D, 1Cr-A, 2 Cr-S, 3 Cr-E, 2 Cr-T), 6 Pendants of Blood, 132 Clusters of Fire, 54 Clusters of Earth, 1 Legion of the Scholar, 1 Seal of Loyalty, and 1 Seal of the Crusader. In addition, Xan now serves as a valuable resource for the young members of House Excidium as a Gaming coach. He takes time out of his schedule to find resources, information, and provide guidance to members on the approved games in the Brotherhood. Just the other night, I watched him assist several junior members of our Battle Team Tacitus Athanasius load their software and get on the server for the first time. He even took the time to show them some basics and familiarize them with the game - a staple of Brotherhood Gaming for decades. He also has created a handbook to show - step by step - how to login to the multiplayer, get on the server, and start a duel. While it might seem silly to older members, this resource has helped our non-gamers through the struggles of familiarizing themselves with the screen shots provided. In addition, he recently hosted CSP: Gamers Unlocked - a competition that really highlighted gaming in a new, different way than Scholae Palatinae has interacted with in the past (the traditional cluster races).
Thank you for your commitment to Scholae Palatinae, Xan. While others have gone elsewhere and tried other things, you’ve been loyal to your Clan through it all. That loyalty makes me appreciate your friendship even more and I am thankful you are here with me going forward.
