Quote of the week: "You're so dumb you wouldn't know rabbit turds from Rice Crispies...Snap-Crackle-Poop!" - Mystery Science Theater 3000
I'll go into it in further detail below, but as we try to get this house back on track we're going to need the help of everyone, and to do that we'll need to get the NightHawks going again and keep in frequent contact - like at least once a week if we can.
So far a number have replied to the AWOL check, via e-mail or I've seen you on-line, but I'd still like to hear from some of you. Also we could help motivate our younger members to finish up the Shadow Academy, we have 2 Novices and 3 Acolytes - of those I've only heard of one who is doing anything in the SA - so it would behoove us all to help each other out and to encourage one another to do what we can when we can (I know Rai, you cut your hand pretty bad, a friend of mine did that with his Katana).
IRC presence isn't a must but it really motivates and encourages as well, so if you have the time log on and join #nagasadow and visit with us and you might just have a good time as we get to know one another better. I include myself in this since I have a bad habit of getting on-line and not logging on to IRC (even if it is just to idle in the channel) it's still a good idea to do.

This is really sad! Not to mention we don't have a Tetrarch to lead the Phyle. So effective immediately I and AP Janos will begin accepting applications for the position of Phyle Tetrarch. Send all applications to: [Log in to view e-mail addresses] and [Log in to view e-mail addresses] with the Subject: Application for NH Tetrarch. Please list several reasons why you would be best suited for this position.
Also, it's key to note that we only have 3 members in our Phyle, it can hold up to 12 (1 TET and 11 Tyros). If you are interested, active, and have some great ideas for the Phyle please let Janos and I know and we'll consider you for membership in the Phyle (which shouldn't be too hard since we have 14 members. Subtract 2 - Janos and myself - and we have 12 the perfect number for a Phyle).
I don't have any currently, but view the Krath High Priestess's report excerpt below.
Also remember we have the Antei Combat Centre (ACC), I myself am not subscribed but am strongly planning on it.
"Songs of Experience"
The lore of the Dark Side has been passed down from Master to Student through song for millennia. What songs did your Master pass to you? Which ones will you pass to your students?
There is no set format for submissions, though I would like a minimum of 60 lines, to encourage you to develop a complex message. Think about what lessons should be passed, about the nature of the Dark Side, and what themes a Dark Jedi might commit to song, to educate the Journeymen. Submissions will be judged primarily on quality of the lesson. Entries will automatically be entered into the Second Chance Competition for this month, that carries the possibility of earning an additional Star of Antei for submitting a work I deem appropriate for the Chronicle of Dark Souls.
Send all entries to Trevarus at [Log in to view e-mail addresses]
Write a love sonnet for Dark Jedi. It should be tragic and poignant.
Instructions for sonnets (yeah, I know I never got around to simplifying these :P):

Take the persona of some ancient powerful Dark Jedi. It must be some non-descript person, so no official characters, but some ancient Jedi that didn't make it to quite such heights of power. Tell his, or her, story.
As this is an epic tale, you may start from the very beginning of his life to the very end, or even before and after, however you prefer to write it. You may tell of how he came to the Sith, or the Dark Side. . . his struggles at creating his own 'empire' or perhaps just his struggles at conquering his own planet. He could have had contact with the true Sith Lords at one time or another, depending on the time frame you choose to place it in. Keep in mind that if you're looking to the future. . . there are ways that certain characters don't have to die, in case you get too attached to the man or woman you're writing about. I'll let you figure that out, though. The goal is to tell the story of this character in a way that they are a solidly developed character at the end of the tale, one you could possibly even use in future stories, or even broader House and Clan run-ons.
We're expecting entries to be in the 10+ pages range.
Submit to Ciara, Trevarus and Alanna
So we have a hella bunch to do if we have the time. Let's let the Brotherhood once again hear the name of HMR and know it is not a name to trifle with.
