The members of the Dark Council have volunteered for a challenging and demanding position that requires constant devotion and dedication to the Dark Brotherhood. The positions on the Council vary, but the demands on time do not. We demand that each individual member be responsive to email, communicate through mIRC, communicate through Telegram, and remain responsive to our club's members. This is a difficult task for all of our leaders, but even more so for the Dark Council.
Unfortunately, Dark Councilors are also historically under-rewarded for their efforts and their dedication to the club. Dark Adept Dacien Victae di Plagia has not received a sacramental award in over two years. This has occurred despite his loyal and unwavering support to our club and to the myriad of initiatives that I have asked him to undertake. As a part of DB 2.0, we asked all of the Dark Councilors to work in concern to ensure that our new systems were synchronized, nested, and fused in a manner that allowed for a seamless transition.
The Shadow Academy took on a large role in our initiatives and in the evolution of the club. Dacien took on the responsibility of supervising the development of the Test of Loyalty, Order's Core Revamp, Journeymen Hall Revamp, Path Revamp, and the development of new fictional material that will set the background for the Shadow Academy on our new Home Planet. Dacient accomplished these tasks while also conducting the day to day business of running the Shadow Academy. This day to day business included the oversight and constant updating of multiple courses, the development of over ten new courses, the tweaking of multiple degrees, and an update to the Shadow Academy Society. Dacien also worked hand in hand with the Voice in the development of the Fiction Society and its linked aspects to the Shadow Academy.
The Headmaster has also been tasked with multiple assignments and tasks outside of his traditional duties and responsibilities. These projects include oversight collaboration on new ranks, small team fictional updates, possession development, and a host of other items that he has provided insight and candor to. Dacien's willingness to support these initiatives are a direct representation of his character and why we are lucky to have him on the Dark Council.
Bubba, thanks for your dedication and continued support to our Club. Congrats.
