<font color="#FFD700"> I want my GDR!</font>> <font color="#FFFAFA"> Sorry about the lateness of this. Last night, I had clinicals in the ER. I was there for a little over six hours, and when I got home, all I wanted to do was relax and go to bed. And, because I had errands to run beforehand, I had forgotten to submit this report earlier in the afternoon. So, again, I apologize.

What's a 'GDR'? Just my idea of a joke. "God-damned Report." People flip sometimes when I don't put out a report, or when it comes out late. Which amazes me. We have a system coming where it seems like, more and more, people don't want to do reports. Or, they find another way of doing them. I tried just making "newsworthy announcements" a while back, in lieu of reports, and people still flipped out. Kir is apparently going to just utilize a DGM site for newsworthy stuff instead of doing reports here, or just using the DB news page. Half the DC doesn't report.

&nsbp;What's my point in all of this? Am I bitching and complaining? Newp, not in the slightest. What I am calling attention to is, there are ways of finding things out, and being informed. You don't have to rely on a report. And, in fact, some people don't even read the reports. There are people who figure "people will tell me about important things." That's what Clan reports are for, right? "If I'm supposed to know something, my Summits will tell me." And I call attention to this mindset for one specific reason. This club is about being motivated, and actively participating in everything, including actively involving yourself in the flow of information. Find out what's going on. Ask questions, and read reports, or websites, or whatever. Do your part, too. It's not always easy for Summits and leadership to make sure "you know everything you need to know." We try as hard as we can, but you need to be a little proactive about it, as well. Be involved, and make sure you're somewhere along the stream of information.

<font color="#FFD700"> I Want Some Ships!</font>> <font color="#FFFAFA"> Well, so does everyone. Here's the thing about ships. Jac would like to see the majority of ships utilized through the Rebirth additions, and through major comps. What that means is, he wants you to earn what you get. He wants you to be active for it, and he wants them to be actual achievements, and not just "free handouts." Sounds pretty fair, right? There have been some ideas presented about "how to give Clans more ships to use." There were some people who misinterpreted the ADGs in that manner. What I was trying to do there was to flesh out the DC fleet/ships/troops/stuff a bit more. Honestly, the DC fleet consisted of a Corellian Corvette, a Modular Taskforce Cruiser, a Victory Class, and an Interdictor on steroids. What does that really give us the ability to do? Not much.

And the same thing has been said to me about some of the Clan fleets. "What does [this fleet] give us the ability to do?" Well, in some cases, it's true; some Clan fleets don't have much to work with. But there is one option people seem to forget. Clan Summits (meaning Consuls and Proconsuls) have the option of running "Clan Feuds." That means your Clan goes up against one or more Clans in a major event. It's similar to the RoS and/or GJW, except that it's run by the Consul(s), and it typically lasts about a month (on the average). Some Clans will challenge another Clan for one of their ships; that's not usually done with much frequency anymore. What it usually ends up as now is, one or more of the participating Clan Summits will draw up an overview, along with the "ships up fro grabs," and submit it to the GM and DGM.

Then what the GM and DGM do is, they look at the overview/outline of the event, see what the level of difficulty is (roughly), and then see whether or not the ships you want to give out are up to that level, not up to it, or too far beyond it. Then, they either request changes, approve it, decline it, whatever. Typically, if they decline it, they'll give you reasons why, and they'll make suggestions about what you can do to modify it, so that it fits their approval. Now, why do I mention this? Well, let's say that Clan Bloodfyre doesn't like the number of ships it has; it wishes it was more along the lines of what Clan Spears has. After all, Clan Spears has many good assets, and Clan Bloodfyre would like to have a fleet that large. So Clan Bloodfyre challenges Clan Korras to a Clan Feud. After all, Clan Korras is Clan Bloodfyre's sworn enemy (fictionally), and it makes sense that the two Clans would often bump heads.

So the two Clan Summits work up a Clan Feud, and submit it. It gets approved. The competition happens for a length of three weeks, after which, Clan Bloodfyre mauls Clan Korras, for it is weak and puny. Clan Bloodfyre wins a new Bulk Cruiser, which is modified to be a "cap ship assault-type" vessel, so that it can pack a pretty decent punch, and give some of the heavier command ships a run for their money. See? Easy, simple. My point? Clans should be encouraged to run Clan Feuds. They can be fun. I promise.

<font color="#FFD700"> What's Happening...</font>> <font color="#FFFAFA"> Holidays are coming and going. Christmas is coming, and hopefully we'll have something going by way of a DC-sponsored Christmas competition. Maybe we'll do the age-old, dull and dreary "Sith-mas jingles, and Krathy tunes, and Obelisk egg nog recipes" crap. Or maybe we'll have something exciting. Like, maybe we'll ask for tortured and dreadful Christmas-themed "slay rides." Let's talk about Jolly Old Saint Sithalas, the grouchy old bastard who went riding in his sleigh and took the heads of little kiddies all around the galaxy, and burned them in the Pit of Caldoon, a magma shaft on the planet Killian. That would be fun, wouldn't it?

The Sith War is still coming. And maybe it'll be about that Jolly Old Bastard, Sithalas, and his grab for power in the world of Dark Christmas. That could be fun; entirely fictional, fiction comps. Coming up with our fictional mytholgy and such. The tales that Dark Jedi tell each other around the campfire to scare the little bitches off that think they have what it takes to be evil. I wish I had thought of that when Korras got on the DC; maybe we could've run the little punk off then. Heh. If you can't tell, I'm joking. Korras sucks, but we still like him. Sort of.

<font color="#FFD700"> Anything Else...</font>> <font color="#FFFAFA"> Just a note to parents here. I know, I know. "That has nothing to do with the DB!" Well, piss off, it's important to me. We had a couple of kids come into the ER last night, both who had fallen while "running around the house." One of them cut up his lip pretty bad when he fell and hit his mouth on his bed, and the other fell and cut up his tongue a bit. The lip needing sticthing; the tongue didn't. My point for mentioning this, though, kids really don't like being in the ER/hospital. And as parents, there are things you can help do to limit this. Help teach your kids that they can get hurt, and that it's not a bad idea to watch where they're going. And, because it's hard for kids to learn that "right away," keep an eye on your kids, watch what they're doing, and try to child-proof your house as much as possible. It'll help save you money on medical bills, and it'll help save kids from having a bad time. It's not fun getting your lip stitched up. There's nothing we can do to take out "all the risk," but we can still try to do as much as possible. Just make sure we're doing all we can to keep the kids safe. They'll love you for it.

"Clan Bloodfyre mauls Clan Korras, for it is weak and puny." LMAO!

Well said BF, Fueds are an important part to gaining more (fictionally) power... but when was the last one in the DB?

I think it was the three way Deception Feud between Satal Keto, Arcona and Naga Sadow way back in the November before the Split, so, 3 years ago :P

On the plus side we've had a lot of RoSs and GJWs in the last two years, back then GJWs/RoSs were super, super, super, super, super rare, so we're basically just been focussing on a different style of comp.

Medical Bills?! This is a concept unfamiliar to myself and the other Canadians in the club.

Please explain :P

Hear Hear!

I am also at a loss. Why would anyone be dumb enought to pay for medical attention? Here we just have to wait on a list for months, soemtimes year, and then we get our free services! Yay for private healthcare!

I'm working on a Christmas comp idea, it's currenly titled, "Put BF on a big platform and throw things at him"....I think its pretty creative :P

I'm going to find the biggest used enema to throw at BF!

I'll throw Oberst at him! :P

Sweet! I get to build the platform. And, if you manage to hit me with anything, you get a free 30-minute period to thrust away at Taldryan's Consul, Shadow! Hit me with something, and hump Shadow to your heart's content! It'll be grand!

Is that really a reward? I thought it was the new disciplinary system they were using over in Clan Tally!!!

Shows what you know. ;P It's not punishment, it's a reward.
