[The Sword's Sheath, 1130 hours, Conference Room 12]
An older gentleman in a crisp new red and black uniform stood at the head of a conference room table. His eyes scanned across the many empty seats. The Gladians who were present were in good spirits, talking and joking amongst themselves. The Aedile raised a hand to signal the start of the meeting, and the talking subsided.
Scion took a sip from his flask before continuing the meeting.
The website is down again. Sarin was on IRC a few days ago saying that even if it appears to be up, do not visit it because it is infected with SQL injector related viruses. The last time I checked, there was a placeholder site up with links to the Wiki and the forums. Even if you can get to the ACC or Shadow Academy at this point, don't bother. I checked with the SCL staff, and they're not working properly even if they appear to be working. They all work from the same database, which has been severely corrupted. The Wiki and forums, on the other hand, use their own separate databases and were not affected.
The latest news that I have is that they have obtained a backup copy of the site from their hosting provider and are working to restore that. Once they do that, they will need to find and fix the security flaw that allowed the attack to occur before they can bring the site back online so this doesn't happen again.
Because of the website problems, the Great Jedi War has been postponed to March. There will be a few smaller things going on in the meantime to tide you over.
[Great Jedi War]
The Great Jedi War is basically, as somebody else put it, the Dark Brotherhood's Olympics. If you never do anything else, please do make an effort to participate when it starts up. Rumors have been flying around about a Clan being closed this time around, and all sorts of other nonsense, but don't let that distract you from the important thing: it is the biggest, best and most important competition there is in the Dark Brotherhood. Everybody is involved. The cost of failure is bigger, but the potential rewards are bigger too.
Real life always takes precedence over some online Star Wars club, but if you can find the time to play even one game or write just one page of fiction it will be much appreciated by everyone and it could win you a shiny medal for your trouble. The key to the Great Jedi War is participation. Even if you aren't the best, just give it a shot anyway. Try it. You'll like it.
If you are a Journeyman and you don't know what you have left to do to earn your next promotion, please ask! Many of you are very close, and could earn it with only a couple hours of effort.
I am looking for fights in the ACC. Challenge me! If you need help qualifying, I'm happy to proofread your writing and help get you ready for it. Please also keep in mind that the ACC is still using the OLD character sheets. Hopefully they'll revise that policy soon!
If any Journeymen are interested in finding a Master to help guide you, please contact me by replying to this report and I will help you find somebody. The Master/Student Program (MSP) is by far the best way to become successful in the Dark Brotherhood. There is no substitute for having an experienced person dedicating their time specifically to help you be successful.
It works the other way around, too. If you are eligible to be a Master and you're looking for a student, please let me know and I'll see if I can find you one.
Please remember to let me know of anything you do that might count as activity. Don't worry about bothering me too much; it's my job to keep track of this stuff. Keep in mind that if you do something but you don't win any medals for it, I won't know about it unless you tell me. That includes ACC, wiki stuff, as well as submitting to competitions. Awards are tied to participation and it all still counts even if you don't win.
