Taldryan Consul Report 2-27-05Report # 94
Alright well its time for another lovely Consul report from yours truly. This report has quite a bit of awesome information in it, along with trivia and other awesomeness so read it all! With that well start. Also there is some important info in the DB news section if you are a DJK or under!
Clan Taldryan News
-Well I finally got it done, the State of the Clan Address was sent out to all of you this week! Im sure you all read it and loved it, but in case you didnt it has been added to the Taldryan website. You can find it in the Consuls Office section, under State of the Clan along with last years address. Can see it here:
-As I announced in my address, Taldryan won the Krath RoS! Great job everyone! Here were the final scores:
Just to give you guys an idea, we had 5 times as many points as Tarentum and 4 times as many as Arcona, who came in 2nd and 3rd behind us in the GJW! And other than Clan Naga Sadow who had a good showing, we absolutely trounced the rest of the DB! The KHP is working on awards right now, so they should be out soon, once again way to go everyone!
-Taldryan absolutely dominated the Sunday Tournament this week. Shadow took 1st, Duga got 2nd, and DS took 3rd. If the rankings kept going Id guess Taldryan actually had the first 6 or 7 places. We got 198 points just from this one day, thats how much we pwned everyone, great job!
-I also mentioned several new things in my Address, including Clan awards and some new positions. Well the details have finally been finalized and added to the Taldryan site, so you can see them here (Awards and Conclave links are in the Knowledge section, Consuls Fist is in the Consuls Office section):
Awards - http://www.taldryan.org/awards.php

READ THIS if you dont have IRC!!!
This new section of my report is dedicated to providing information about IRC (internet relay chat). If I had to name one thing that makes a successful Taldryan member, I would say IRC useage. It is required for all of the Clans leaders, and all of our most active members can be found there. I have found out that many members read my reports, and some of them dont use IRC, and I am hoping I can change this.
Here are some quick things about IRC:
-It is a free download (it says you have to register it within 30 days, but you never have to)
-Its VERY simple to use
-All the most active people are on it
-There are almost always people around
-Some competitions are only available on IRC
-You get to know people much better
-You get more of the Taldryan team feeling if you are on it
-Being active on IRC can be a reason to get medals/promotions
-Our clan channels get a little crazy sometimes, and its fun!
-You can message individuals like AIM, and talk in chatrooms (multiple rooms at the same time)
How can I get IRC? For Windows users the most popular IRC program is mIRC, which you install on your computer and use just as you would an instant messenger. mIRC is only a free trial, but you may use it as long as you want without penalty (other than a few annoying messages telling you to register). You can find mIRC here:
If you can't install stuff on your computer or you're constantly switching computers in a lab, you can also use the DB IRC, which is a java applet (to be used through your browser) allowing you to talk in only one channel or room at a time. DB IRC can be found here:
IRC is very popular and therefore has many servers and channels. This makes it hard to find what you want unless you know what you're doing. Therefore make sure to use the following settings when starting up IRC:
Brotherhood Channel: #db
Clan Channel: #taldryan
Have IRC but confused on how to get things going? Well you are in luck, the Shadow Academy has several IRC courses, and the first one is very helpful and for new users. Just go to the SA (http://www.darkjedibrotherhood.org/dbjedi/shadowacademy/sa/index.html) and then click on General Studies, and then the IRC Basics course. It will guide you through how to use IRC. If youre still having trouble or dont like how the SA course is laid out, you can read the IRC guide written by QUA Shadow (http://dinaari.taldryan.org/irc_guide.php). It has images of the menus and everything, and is very helpful!
I hope to see a lot of you on IRC!
-If you ever need to see an old Consul report, all of mine are up on djb.org!

There isnt any specific structure, you just play as many matches as you would like and the person with the most wins during the day wins the Tournament.
