My appology that this is a couple of days later than usual. Like I warned at the meeting on saturday, I'm back to work this week after having four weeks off for easter, so its taken me a few days to get used to things again- though the seriously painful ear infection I've got hasn't helped matters. Anyhow, hopefully I'll be back to my usual self from today, so time to get on with the report:
Good progress has been made on the Holocron this week with Chapters 1 to 8 now completed, of a total of what is likely to be about twenty Chapters. The good news is that the later Chapters are all much easier than the first few- meaning I may be able to get the Holocron completed this weekend- if not it will be finished by next weekend. All that will then need to be done is for it to be spruced up into a proper online manual.
I would just like to remind all Consuls that I would like them to get back to me about their Clan's preferred arrangements for their starfighters. I've given three weeks now, so I'd like to move onto the next stage, so if you could do that by the weekend I'd appreciate it.
Great Jedi War Progress
I've almost completed the Sith related things for the Great Jedi War, all I have to do is sit down this weekend and make the Single Player battles, so expect a fun set of events similar to what we experienced in the Third Sith War.
The Empire and the military?
This is more a request for feedback than an announcement. What is your view on the Empire? Does the Brotherhood have a part in it or not? Would you like to see Imperial naval ranks used somewhere in the Brotherhood or not? I'm asking for whatever feedback you want to give. A lot of people used to like roleplaying as a military officer so I'm looking at possibly including ranks in some of my upcoming proposals, so whatever thoughts you have on the issue would be appreciated.
Jump to Lightspeed
Jump to Lightspeed is the upcoming space expansion to Star Wars Galaxies. Judging from the current videos available I have to say that I think the game will be brilliant, there are a fair number of ships available, and coupled with what is already an enjoyable game the space expansion should do wonders. I've also heard that the game will make use of a joystick and real player skill, rather than just what abilities your character has in the pilot profession, meaning it should have good combat. If you've ever had any thoughts about buying Galaxies then I would recommend you do so, the games improved a lot since it first came out and the space expansion will only make it a far better game. The sooner you sign up the sooner you can start saving up for a starfighter, so I'd recommend joining as soon as possible to take full advantage upon the expansion's release (the Dark Brotherhood server is Skylla, with the guild based at Obsidian City on planet Lok).
Why am I plugging Galaxies in my report? Jump to Lightspeed is the main reason, but I've also noticed a number of veteran Sith members have actually turned out to enjoy the game- myself included- so it might be a trend, you never know, meaning it could well be a worthwhile investment for any Sith member who has enjoyed the flight simulators.
Just to let you know what sort of things are flying around within my office at the moment. Possible plans include a Sith elite squadron, reworking the role of Sith battleteams, a Sith council and some kind of honour ranking system for multiplayer victories. Expect more news on these projects as and when they develop... as usual though, if you have any input even at this early stage please feel free to contact me.
Well thats it for this week, I'll have an update on the Great Jedi War and Sith Holocron for the weekend, and depending on the feedback about our situation with the Empire and the military I may well put out a poll about what sort of ideas appeal to people. In closing, I'd like to point everyone's attention to the general message board where a discussion is going on about the future of the Orders, all thoughts and feedback on this issue would be greatly appreciated.
