Jac works a lot behind the scenes, and it's very easy to overlook the stuff that most people don't see. Very few people have the skill and drive to implement the things that make the 'grunt work' of the DB easier, but Jac seems to always deliver on this. Recently, Jac went through and re-wrote a whole lot of code that made gaming night rewards much much easier. With each refinement that takes more of the 'grunt work' away, it frees those of us who would be stuck doing the repetitive stuff up to work on projects that the members will enjoy more. And while those projects are relatively easy to see and give kudos for, I think that as much praise should go to the people who make it possible for those people to do so. Jac, you continue to impress us with your diligent work to make our jobs easier and help us work to improve the brotherhood. And for that, I'd like to award you a small token of our appreciation, a Steel Cross. Thanks again, Jac.

It is hard for me to quantify the work that Grand Master Cotelin has put into the Dark Brotherhood over the past six months. Despite his hectic work life and his insane schedule, Jim still continues to put forth more effort and more "actual" work than the majority of the Dark Council combined.
As the soul major projects coder for the Dark Brotherhood, Grand Master Cotelin has supplied our entire organization with two incredible updates.
The first is the new website design and the second is the upcoming release of the new character sheets. With these two projects GM Cotelin has taken the Dark Brotherhood from a club utilizing techniques from the 90s to a club of the modern era.
I cannot award GM Cotelin another rank or another Golden Lightsaber, but I can award him a Steel Cross, or in this case, many Steel Crosses.
I have broken the award down by hours of coding work, and to be honest, saying each of these SCs is worth 20 hours of coding work is probably an understatement.
Congratulations GM Cotelin on your Steel Cross w/ Cluster of Transcendence.

Grand Master Jac Cotelin was a huge asset to Clan Taldryan during the Ninth Great Jedi War. He participated in a whopping seventeen (17) events for the Vendetta, snagging three Novas for his efforts (Gold, Silver, and Bronze). He was fairly active on IRC and on e-mail, helping the Clan Summit on several issues during the War to boot. Throw in his awesome "multimedia" submission ("Jac rolling") and that alone is worth a Steel Cross. Thanks for your help, Jac! We always appreciate your support for Taldryan even when you've already put in so much effort over the years.
Everyone knows Jac. He's awesome. Even though he's a super-lawyer man, two-time Grand Master, and all-around incredible guy, he still resurfaces to help Taldryan during a vendetta. Jac participated in four events, taking a first and second place finish to secure Taldryan's win in the second round of events. Without Jac, Taldryan would not have stood a chance in this Rite of Supremacy. For his much-needed assistance, I'm happy to recommend Jac for a Steel Cross (though he has fifty of them already). Congratulations, Jac. And thanks.

Jac, as part of Taldryan’s Special Forces, you have participated in a total of nine event during Phase Two of the Dark Crusade and while this alone already is outstanding, you also managed to be the one earning the most Top3 placements in Taldryan. For this hard work and dedication you have shown for your Brothers and Sisters in House Taldryan, it is my greatest pleasure to recommend you to be rewarded with this Steel Cross as sign of appreciation.

Ah my Apprentice in Pimpery. Some might say I have been remiss in not promoting you before now. I instead like to think of it as a motivational exercise. Look at all you've accomplished while being my GHIP in Training? Second term of GM, all those medals, a couple hero titles, every other bit of the ridiculous amount of awesomness that you've done.
But we're not here to talk about all of that. We're here to talk about rewarding you for your prodigious efforts in Phase 2 of the Dark Crusades, where you've continued to dominate in amazing fashion, finishing off the second phase as the current leader of the DB's medal board. If this were the Olympics? You'd be the United States and/or Soviet Russia. Maybe both combined. Instead, what you are is the proud owner of another Steel Cross, and a promotion from being GHIP in Training to Vice-GHIP. Grats Jaccy.

The Justicar dual wields Golden Lightsabers, but it is still nice to receive an award for your work. Jac and his staff handle a never ending barrage of complaints, clone issues, and covenant upgrades that require near constant attention. The type of attention that requires you to be on your phone and respond to DB work while waiting for Episode VII. Despite this, Jac has, as always, handled his duties with ease. Thanks for your work Jimbo.
