Rivio had wondered why he had been summoned. Surely he had not done anything to cause the Sadow Summit to be upset. As he made his way down the corridor of The Perdition, he came to a large dark metal door and pressed his hand against it. Darkness greeted him and he could feel the dark side energy almost pulsing around him.
“Why are they bothering to contact me now?”
The Dark Side was heavy here, practically suffocating for its weight. He spotted two braziers set up, with flames licking up from them.
“Come forward.” The cool, familiar voice of the Rollmaster called. It was hard to see, but he could make out the Twi’lek. She was wearing black robes instead of her normal wear.
He paused momentarily before stepping forward and waiting silently.
The entire place was deathly quiet, before the crackling hiss of a lightsaber broke the silence. An icy topaz colored lightsaber illuminated the features of the Consul of Naga Sadow. Rivio kept his eyes focused on Bentre’s blade as he walked up to him.
He thought for a moment as he saw the eyes of the Summit reflecting in the light of the weapon and decided to kneel.
Soon the Summit itself, began to speak.
“Your efforts have been seen, Rivio.” came a soft reply from Ashia, the Proconsul.
"Your victories have been tallied.” Came a little more familiar voice of Darkhawk.
“You have shown potential.” Echoed Xuner.
“You have shown great skills for having no master.” Locked replied.
As the braziers flared up again, the fire crackling and dancing, Rivio saw the Lion of Tarthos standing up from the Summit. His presence was beginning to overwhelm him. He had never felt such power before in his life till now. He took a slight gulp and stayed kneeled before Bentre.
“You have been measured.” The Lion growled and then fell silent as Bentre continued.
“And you have been found worthy.”
Rivio felt the lightsaber hover over his left shoulder. He didn’t move until it had crossed past his right shoulder. As the weapon came away, he peered up to see Bentre looking down upon him.
“By your deeds, you have successfully tread the same path as have so many before you, Now, stand and take your place as a Knight of Clan Naga Sadow!"
As he stood up, the entire Summit ignited their lightsabers in salute, welcoming another Knight into the fold.
Firstly, we do want to thank you Rivio for his hard work and offer our congratulations on knighthood! I also wanted to take a moment to share the recommendations provided in support of Rivio's promotion:
Rivio Rosan has been quite the busy bee since his last promotion. His activity spans the length of the club in almost all manners.
In the Shadow Academy, he has been promoted to Lvl 4 in the SA Society, passing 2 courses (Leadership, Management and Leadership, Rewards), and was awarded an SA degree.
In terms of gaming, his excellent gaming skills have earned him 6 Pendants of Blood.
In terms of fiction, he was awarded 7 Clusters of Ice, wrote an approved 3000 character fiction, and completed a quality character article.
For competitions, his participation across 8 competitions was awarded with 2 major competition awards (including Crescents or Novae).
His 28 days or more in rank have been beyond amazing and has brought honour, glory, and pride, not just to himself in my eyes but to House Shar Dakhan and Clan Naga Sadow as a whole. He is an amazing member of our Clan and the Club as a whole. His work, while being more hush-hush than I would have liked it to be, has been absolutely outstanding in both its quantity as well as its quality. His promotion to Knight is one that is greatly deserved and has been given to the most deserving of people.
May his actions serve as an example to the greatness of Clan Naga Sadow and its members from this point as Knight and beyond. Let it serve to inspire others to do the same as well.
Congratulations, Knight Rivio Rosan.

This is so AWESOME!!!!! There really is not much more I can say that my Clanmates have not already said. I am impressed to see you make this an achievement, especially solo! Rivio has busted through the necessary rank requirements, took on the SA, garnered some winnings in comp and gaming arena. Putting forth this incredible effort deserves nothing less than this promotion to Knight. Congratulations and well deserved!!!!

Joining the ranks of Knight is no easy task. Rivio has chosen to do this without the aid of a master. He has been very active since joining, even aiding his clan in the recent vendetta. He has steadily climbed in rank and has fought hard to get where he is and has developed a character that will have lasting benefit to the club. He is a valuable member and I appreciate everything he has brought to Clan Naga Sadow. I am delighted to recommend Rivio for this promotion to Knight and I look forward to what the future brings for him. Bravo, Rivio! Well done!
Proconsul of Clan Naga Sadow
What can I say? Rivio is a determined individual who was willing to take on the challenge of becoming a Knight without a Master. He has proven himself worthy of the title of Knight and has impressed me greatly. He does tend to keep mainly to himself, however he does chat with Naga Sadow from time to time and I have enjoyed seeing him around. I can't wait to see him progress further in the ranks and continue his journey in the Dark Brotherhood. Congratulations on a well-earned promotion Rivio! ~Tasha'Vel Versea, Rollmaster of Naga Sadow

Many have walked the path that leads to Knighthood. In my experience, I have not seen many who have chosen to do so.
Let that sink in. Rivio chose to go without a Master. Rivio has been very independent, and self-reliant. So bravo to Rivio on that front.
Elevation to the rank of Knight is a milestone of different kinds for many people. For some, it is a goal. For others, it is but the hint of things to come. With that in mind, I do honestly hope to see even more come from Rivio's little corner of the galaxy, than what we have seen in his short time with us.
Well done, Knight Rivio. The drinks aboard the Peridition tonight, will be on you!
Bentre Kairn'tel Sadow
Overlord of Naga Sadow
Please join us in celebrating this milestone of Clan Naga Sadow's newest inductee into the ranks of Knight!
Well done, Rivio!
