Primary reason

The honor of a Sapphire Blade is not to be taken, or measured, lightly. It is the pinnacle of feats for most members and the sign of upcoming, great leaders for a gifted few. I am proud to say that I believe this will be the first of many sacrificial awards for SBL Thran Occasus. And I am proud to have him as a member of the Clan and a leader on my team. Recently, a team of committed individuals worked together on the Clan Scholae Palatinae Dominion Project in an attempt to flesh out the Cocytus System - home of our Clan. The document spans over forty five pages of straight text - pure content - that uncovers a rich, detailed history for each of our four planets: Antenora, Caina, Judecca and Ptolomea. In addition to in-depth historical content, the document covers planet statistics, lunar statistics, planet geography, lunar geography, continents, islands, island chains, cities, landmarks, military outlook and political outlook. All in all, it provides an exceptional, fictional base for the members of Clan Scholae Palatinae to build from as they continue to advance their individual plots, and the plot of the Brotherhood and the Clan. Many thanks are necessary for all whom contributed to this project. Thran was brilliant in his assistance to this project, completely taking over the planet home world of House Caliburnus - his former charge, during his tenure as Quaestor. It was through his efforts that we discovered Ptolomea would become the bastion world of the Cocytus System, an Imperial Garrison of immense proportions capable of not only thwarting the Yuuzhan Vong whom had attempted to conquer it, but provide a base of operations for the future of our Scholae Palatinae Corps. Integrating the Dynasty Station, Military and Caliburnus into his writing, Thran gave us a world of scholarly pursuit that possesses a sharpened, military edge. His write-ups were nothing short of brilliant, immersing his reader into unique military bases and lush valleys filled with exotic flora and fauna. Great work, Thran... you will forever be a Rock Star! But it does not stop here. Thran was a crucial asset during Fleet Reset, as we abused his knowledge of Star Wars Ships & Fighters to develop our current Fleet. He spent countless hours drafting proposals, with explanations, to allay an entire Clans fears for a crucial point in their history. From this point, he went on to divide our new Fleet into Task Forces, Battle Groups and Lines - even assigning the fighter squadrons to specific ships and denoting command ships. From here, he reorganized our Fighter Corps, giving them new assignments, names and call signs. He spent a vast amount of time on these two projects, in conjunction, to ensure that the members of Scholae Palatinae would have a vast, rich fictional prospectus. Thran was also responsible for running the Fleet Ship Naming competitions, creating three polls and sorting through countless submissions. He, truly, is our Ace in Space. Personally, he has earned eight (8) crescents (Cr-A, Cr-S, 3 Cr-E, 2 Cr-T, Cr-Q), two Clusters of Fire (for participation in the ACC), a Dark Cross and a Seal of Loyalty. He has passed three Shadow Academy courses: Capital Starship Studies, Dark Brotherhood Basics, Weapon Basics. Thran has also began work on his extensive, detailed history by converting his long fictions to the DB Wiki. This process, however, has been slowed by his work for the Clan on creating the necessary pages for our Squadrons as he updates our Corps. He has also been busy as the leader of the Battle Team Nightshade Squadron since his resignation from Quaestor, as he mapped out a schedule for his unit and provided them with updates and competitions. And he was recently torn from this position to serve as the Aedile of House Dorimad Sol. Where he has already begun to implement a new series of changes and updates that range from the basic frame work of a new House Facility (2 page proposal) and providing his members with at least two new competitions bi-weekly. He is also reporting regularly and giving the House its first, true Aedile to compliment the Quaestor. For his ability to be flexible and work for the betterment of the Clan (testified by his resignation of QUA, to allow his AED to grow into that position - and subsequent appointment as AED), to give up personal ambitions to work on Clan Projects (Ptolomea.doc, Corps Reset, HDS Facility proposal, Clan Menagerie) and his ability to be a role model for the rest of the Clan... I am honored to present him this blade. And look forward to the day that I can elevate him within the Equite ranks. <br> * Ptolomea: 15 pgs <br> * HDS Facilities Proposal: 4pgs(Still in progress) <br> * HDS History and Wiki page <br> * 7 Competitions <br>* Orchestrated a mini-feud with HC <br>* Clan Menagerie <br> o Guidelines <br> o Animal Statistics <br> * HDS Castle: Boreal Citadel(tenative name) <br> * HC Facilities: 5-7pgs <br> * Image(s): <br> o Dynasty Station <br> o HC Facilities Overview <br> o HC Caves <br>* Fleet Reset Deployment: 3pgs <br> o call signs <br> o unit designations <br> * Tie Corps: 10pgs <br><br>Phoenix Olkyssagh d'Tana Palpatine <br>Consul of Clan Scholae Palatinae

For valiant effort in leadership during the Ninth Great Jedi War and leading his clan to third place, Thran is hereby awarded the Sapphire Blade. Congratulations and well done. ~ Muz Ashen, Dark Lord of the Sith

From the 5-11-09 GM report: First Place, Arcona's Sashar, will recieve an <b>Amethyst Kukri</b> for his efforts in leadership. Despite a major snafu that left him without half his summit, Sashar was still able to keep Arcona on track and fighting to unseat Taldryan.<P> Taldryan's Shadow and Scholae Palatinae's Thran will both be receiving <b>Sapphire Blades</b> for their work to keep the war close. With so few points different and the tensions high, it was quite a feat to keep everyone going that long. Plagueis' Braecen, Naga Sadow's Bob, and Tarentum's Anshar will all be receiving <b>Grand Crosses of the Dark Side</b> as well, for their efforts. Congratulations, Consuls, and well done.
