Surprise, surprise: We utterly destroyed all competition in the Krath Rite of Supremacy. We doubled, tripled and quadrupled a lot of clans total points, which is just amazing. Way to band together for a Krath purpose to keep the Taldryan tradition of ass kicking alive. Huge props to everyone who helped contribute. Medals should be rewarded soon so expect to see a lot of Novas and Seals coming our way. Once again, great work all.
Kir released his second State of the Clan address and its a really good read. Everyone should check it out because it has a lot of cool information about where Tal is heading and what we accomplished in this last year. http://www.taldryan.org/address.php You can even compare it to last years with the link for 2004 at the bottom of the page.
Dinaari is absolutely pimping the MP nights. Sunday tournament Taldryan had a total of 182 matches played like 10 times what any other clan had played and we swept the placings easily. Last weeks ICTE more uber pwnage as Duga and myself tied for ICTE All-Star. And this week, though the results arent out yet Tal dominated again. I have a feeling Duga and I were once again in a tight race for All-Star.
Lately weve also been playing Capture the Flag in JO like crazy. So much fun. If you own the game and can MP you should get on IRC and join us. The best we manage is 3v3 and its a lot of fun. Well easily have the best CTF teams in any future CTF competitions (hopefully happening in the near future)

The SHAFT arrived and people are already rocking out the activity to get the best reward possible. Basically this is an MP Free-For-All. You can play fun matches or matches for other competitions in the DB (yes they must be DB-related) and report your wins to me. Each win gets you a point. Rest of the details can be found here - http://www.taldryan.org/dinaari/competitions.php#current5 -
The current standings are:
Chaosrain - 13
Kraval - 12
Duga - 6
I know a lot of people havent reported yet as theyre saving up to report lots of wins at a time. Remember you can email me at any time (have Shaft in the emails subject) and Ill add the points to my tally. If you ever want to cash out for a medal let me know or save up until you can get the best.
Ziggy AKA Sithspawn pwned my Un-Valentines Day Competition with a very hilarious, grotesque, made me want to vomit fiction entry. It was awesome. Trazar got second with a funny poem and Locust hit up 3rd place with a freaky image. Congrats guys.

Sith in Fiction The SHW wants to complete the history of the Sith Lords. Apparently the first known Sith Lord is Marka Ragnos and hes the 9th, which means there are 8 others that we know nothing about. Check out the details in his report here - http://www.darkjedibrotherhood.org/dbjedi/comments.asp?ID=R:6917 -
CoG Jasru is looking to enhance some aspects of the fictional side of the new Royal Guard. To that end hes started a competition to create a new Guard crest. Check out the info here - http://www.darkjedibrotherhood.org/dbjedi/comments.asp?ID=N:2684 -

Sorta forgot about my plans to create some Dinaari history pages but Ill remember to bug Ben about that when he has the time. We have an excellent heritage being a part of Dinaari and seeing it all outlined on one page is amazing. So look forward to that soon.
Well I said I was working on re-releasing the Dark Jedi Trials and then I got a few new ideas and changed the layout for the whole thing but its still the same structure. From now on the requirements for the ranks of Novice to Jedi Hunter can be found in the Promotion Guide page on the Dinaari site - http://www.taldryan.org/dinaari/promo.php - Thats basically the same as what I had before except it currently goes to Guardian. Im working on trying to get something down for Jedi Hunter and improve Guardian a little bit.
Now, as you all know I announced my changed to the battleteams a few weeks ago. Basically, I decided that for Dinaari members to earn the rank of Dark Jedi Knight they had to be given a shot in a leadership position. To me this is almost exactly like a Padawans Jedi Trial to earn the rank of Jedi Knight this is their first mission on their own with real responsibilities. Because of that Ive written a little fictional part about going from Jedi Hunter to Dark Jedi Knight, which will now be known as the Dark Jedi Trial. I also plan to incorporate a Trial Archives section to the site. Basically I want people who earn DJK to write a fictional piece about how they accomplished the feat and then well post the stories up in the Trials Archives for future generations to see. And of course, older members who have already passed DJK can write a fiction about how they got it and get it added to the Trials Archive as well. Ill have more info on this once I finish the Dark Jedi Trial page of the site.

Jac needs help naming the DCs new flagship If you have any ideas post em on this MB thread - http://www.darkjedibrotherhood.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=225 -
The Shadow Academy is looking for two new instructors for the ICQ and Meditation courses. Not sure what happened to the old ones but this is copy/pasted from Spears news post:
The Shadow Academy is looking for 2 new Instructors, for the ICQ and Meditation exams.
No Rank requirement although you must have passed the exam you wish to Instruct with at least an 85 to be considered for the position. Applications will be taken thru email only so don't message me on IRC about it. Email all applications to [Log in to view e-mail addresses] and [Log in to view e-mail addresses]

I know I missed last weeks report but I completely forgot about it Sunday and then I was tired Monday and decided that I didnt have enough to report about. In the last two weeks weve been dominating the MP, which I think the Krath RoS is partially responsible for. After 3 months of just fiction everyone was more than ready to get back to MP. I love seeing this kind of activity, especially from our newer members. Its great to see these guys playing JO with us daily and hanging out on IRC.
I know a lot of you have CFs coming but dont freak out if you dont get them right away. The SHW (the guy who rewards them for every MP night but ICTE) is on leave at the moment but hell catch up when he gets back. Good work again everyone. Pwning the MP, pwned the RoS, and I know well pwn the next thing that comes along.
