Great Jedi War XII has now finished!

As the Great Jedi War comes to a close, I wanted to congratulate all of you on a hard fought effort and an incredible event! Twenty seven competitions and five weeks later, we have reached the finish line. Participation was exceptional across the event, as we received more than 1600 total entries across the three phases - not counting all of the many team events. Members from across the Brotherhood exceeded expectations and gave the Collective - and other Clans - quite a run for their money!

With the event finished, you can expect additional posts from the Dark Council soon, including fictional updates, preliminary results, and feedback requests. We are aiming for final results end of next week, because the holiday coming up here for some of us will require a break in our grading, but there will be updates prior to the final results.

Congratulations again... and see all of you again soon!

Message from the Fist

Good evening, DJB. Short report for this month, as I just returned from a field exercise and have a few RL things to focus on. Going to cover a couple topics related to the ongoing GJW gaming competitions, initial support for Battlefront 2, and dish out some overdue PoBs.

GJW Bracket Events

The main brackets are nearly complete. The Jedi Academy novae matches have already been played, and the Heroes of the Storm 2v2 bracket is awaiting one final match.

As I stated in my last GJW Gaming Update, there are two sub brackets for both Jedi Academy and Heroes of the Storm. Those brackets will determine 5-8th place and 9-10th place for each competition. As a reminder, while the top three in each event earn novae, placement matters for the top 10. You get points. Those points help your clans.

We are down to the final six days of the GJW, and the placement brackets are relatively stagnant. I expect all members in those brackets to actively attempt to contact your opponents. Clan leaders have already been notified of this issue. November 20th is the absolute last day to play your matches. I will not allow any extensions beyond the confines of the GJW parent competition.

Click the links below to check your seeding/matchup for the placement brackets:

HotS 2v2 5th-8th Place Bracket

HotS 2v2 9th and 10th Place Bracket

Game Updates

Star Wars Battlefront 2

The newest addition to EA’s Star Wars game library is here! As promised, BF2 will have launch day support. Just like Destiny 2, this will be a progressive launch. We have five activities available for launch day support, other events and Pendant of Blood requirements will follow after a few weeks of seeing everything the game has to offer.

Starting out, here’s the current plan for supported activities. These will not be live until the official launch day. In the interest of fairness, any activities played prior to 17 November (actual launch, not pre-order launch) are not allowed for submission:

  • Blast (10v10 Deathmatch): Awards 2 CF per Match (based off average of 10 minute matches)

  • Heroes vs Villains (4v4 Using Hero Characters): Awards 2 CF per match (averages 10 minutes)

  • Strike (8v8 Objective based, similar to Overwatch): Awards 2 CF (time average is 10-15 minutes)

  • Starfighter Assault (12 v 12 Fighter mode, similar to BF1): Awards 2 CF per match (time average is 10-15 minutes)

  • Galactic Assault (20 v 20 battles with multiple objectives): Awards 3 CF per match (time Average is 15 minutes)

Screenshot method is the exact same as Battlefront 1 (2015 release, not the really old one). You have to pay attention, or you will miss it. Just like Battlefront 1, you have to actively play (play the full match and register at least one kill) in order to qualify for Clusters of Fire. All the rules will be on the wiki sometime this weekend, once I have a chance to sit down and add it.

Also, these values are subject to change in the interest of balancing. All SW games have a 50 CF/CE cap per day.

No. I am not going to run an uncapped double cluster Starfighter Assault competition.

Seriously...you can get DVT and bedsores from the nonsense you all pulled two years ago.

Admin and Policy Reminders

Fist Supplemental 11.1 - Teamspeak is out. Discord is the official DJB voice server.

Fist Supplemental 11.3 - Updates to the RoC and Wiki. The T1/T2 game delineation has been removed. All games are eligible for use during GJWs and Vendettas.

  • Gifs, stickers, images, charity solicitations, and being a jerk are all banned from DB Gaming. The Gif, Sticker, and image ban is non-negotiable. I stated in this news post what the rules of engagement were. If you post something that you aren’t supposed to, I’ll simply delete it. If you do it again, I’ll restrict your posting ability to text only. It’s that simple.

  • The staff has 24 hours from the time you submit gaming activity to approve it. If your submission has been sitting for longer than that, there is a problem. If it hasn’t, there is no problem. The staff do their best to process gaming submissions as quickly as possible, but they are real people with real lives. I do not expect them to sit behind a computer processing gaming submissions all day, and neither should any of you.

  • Solo submissions are never acceptable for Clusters of Earth/Fire. I will reject any that come in. You must play with at least one other DB member, no exceptions. This is not changing any time in the near (or far) future.

  • Reminder: Feel free to run Gaming competitions DB wide. Gaming is a slightly different community, and is one of the few that consistently brings club members together outside of the competitive environment. Most of the people I currently game are all in different clans. By opening up your event DB-wide, you increase the pool of possible participants, which could allow for a crescent upgrade!

  • Reminder: While I sincerely appreciate having proposals sent to me via telegram, please email the staff list (email is at the bottom of this report). I ask that your House and Clan leadership take a look at your proposals before you send them up. This isn’t to add a layer of bureaucracy, it’s because I’m sure they’d like to know how you are trying to help the club improve...helps with award and promotion recommendations and all that. Feel free to cc them on your email to me and my staff.

TL;DR

1) Go play your matches

4) Go.

5) Play.

6) Your.

The GJW is really interesting from this side of the fence. I can’t talk about anything in terms of results or specific participation numbers, but as a club you are all knocking it out of the park. Keep gaming, writing, drawing, and puzzling. We’ll see you all on the other side (where all the shiny Novae are)!

Oh. Isn’t there a new movie coming out soon? I think there is.

That’s pretty damn swell, too.

Greetings,

I am opening up applications for the 14th Appeals Panel. I would like to thank Lexic, Arch, and Alaris for their service on the 13th Appeals Panel. They have been an excellent part of my team and I have been grateful for their help. I have recommended a wee shiny for each as a thanks.

The Appeals Panel consists of three members from among the Dark Brotherhood's units. Each term of the Appeals Panel is one year (sometimes extended if in the midst of a trial). This term will run until October 31, 2018.

Appeals Panel members can expect to be more than "on call" for a trial issue. As Justicar, I sometimes use the Appeals Panel members as quasi-magistrates, assigning them tasks so they can help with the Chamber of Justice. This upcoming panel will be in place during the creation of new Shadow Academy Courses regarding the Covenant. Appeals Panel members receive a small credit stipend (about as must as a Steel Cross for the 6 months service) and are eligible for other awards from the Justicar for good service. Appeals Panel members also get the ability to serve on the CoJ team, and a seat on the Appeals Panel can be good experience for possible service as a Hand of Justice in the future. Please be advised that if you apply for an Appeals Panel position and are accepted, you will not be eligible to serve as a Hand of Justice for the upcoming term, which starts on January 1, 2018, and for which applications will be opened mid-December.

I have created a Google form application for people to fill out to express their interest. Applications are due on Sunday, November 12, 2017, by 11:59 PM EST. Remember: there are three open spots, so your chances are great! Just fill out the form and make sure you can fulfill a 12-month term

Here is the application form.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you. Dilly dilly!

Greetings Everyone,

I wanted to take a moment to send out a few tips for the GJW Phase II Battle Plan. In the past real world military members have graded the battle plans and that has led to the inclusion of many "real world" tactics and strategies. It has also included many teams submitting their battle plans in five paragraph operations order format (/me shudders). Please see my comments to a team that went out earlier today and take them into consideration as you design your Veers like masterpiece.

  1. The GJW XII Battle Plan event is not the Command and General Staff College's Torch Exam. The tactics of Napoleon in the Montenotte Campaign, Scipio's harassment of Carthage to lure Hannibal home, or General Perkins conducting the Thunder Run are all irrelevant here. Do not constrain your submission based on real life.

  2. Spatial and Temporal real world restrictions are not present in Star Wars. Speed is multiplicative with the inclusion of artificial intelligence, machine learning, enhanced or automated fire controls, increased range and lethality of weapon systems, swarm technology, supersonic delivery of people and munitions, and enhanced-human battlefield decision making processes. Future tech all but eliminates real world concepts of mass, offense, and defense. 3:1 offensive to defensive ratios and linear fronts should be replaced with a non-contiguous battlefield.

You are an advanced expeditionary force capable of theater or even planetary strike within seconds due to the equipment and capability at your hands. Every assumption based on current state or even future warfare should be challenged or ignored on these battle plans.

Lastly, our actual Command and General Staff College graduates are not grading the battle plans (we have two). Star Wars fans will be grading them. I'd keep that in mind when thinking about how the authors put together the mission prompt. I'd look for potential areas to exploit or for creative freedom to put forward a battle plan that allows you to really conduct a plan how you want.

Good luck to all of you.

Thanks!

Great jedi War XII Retribution

As I said, GJW XII is already in Phase II and boy is it eventfull (hue) and submissionfull (that one doesn't really work). I'd like to talk about some of the specifics from my side of the front.

To start with...

...I'd like to say thanks to you guys who participated in Phase I graphics comps. We've had 149 unique participants and entries to those two comps and it gave me a headache grading all of them. In fact, it still does since I haven't finished yet.

But, that's the beauty of this competition.The more you post and make my job more difficult, the better event it is. So give me more entries! Feed meh! :P

The Seal of Retribution

Let me just put this out and you judge it for yourself...

The seal is based on traditional looks from GJWs past, with a dash of new. I hope you enjoy the shiney. :)

Phase II and Event long graphics competitions

Remember to participate in Event long comps for those bonus braging rights if you win.

Do all the things!

Ask the Herald

Wally asked: #asktheherald will the Voice be able to use some of the character art created for the GJW event for Collective character sheets and wiki articles? :D

If the Voice gets permission, sure :P

Follow up: #asktheherald how does the Voice go about that :p

#askthemember :P (i.e. using member submissions on the wiki requires member approval)


Zujenia asked: #AsktheHerald. If an interested artist drafts up an outfit idea or several for the populace that the Herald staff nd the members like, would the Herald staff digitize it should the artist not have the means too.

If it fits into our theme for a particular release, sure. But I can't promise we will. We'll probably do a member-driven release at least once.


A'lora asks: Followup #asktheherald How are release themes determined, or is it just based off of what a members of the Herald staff decides on while making a new robe?

We try to follow specific shows/episodes of shows/movies. So December will always be a movie theme. If there is a particularly interesting outfit in Rebels, we may go with that theme. Otherwise I usually determine a theme based on what we need.


Zujenia asks: #AsktheHerald Would we ever see some not horribly feminized poses for the women clothing images? (They're all beautiful, but gosh that pose is aggressively 'feminine')

If you suggest a pose/paper doll I'll consider it :)


Edema asks: #AsktheHerald do we have a list of the vehicles used by the Collective to refer too? I tried going via possessions, but got lost

Best to look at their Possessions page, but you're not limited to that

Follow up: So I can pick any canon vehicle that would fit their fluff and draw it as a collective version?

Essentially, yes.


Tarvitz asks: I have one serious one please. #AsktheHerald - With The Battle of Nancora. may I ask how many liberties we are allowed to take? Sorry, by that I mean does this need to be the entire battle, a few units across a portion of it, or even just a symbolic duel between two combatants?

It has to be a landscape picture. The focus should be on a wider view that a duel, for example. Beyond that you're free to do as you please.


Zujenia asks: #AsktheHerald Would the staff consider hosting hangouts where we play themed concept drawing games like the drawfy channel does on youtube? those with the ability to paricitpate can pop in for the challenge.

[In reply to Zujenia Kait] I would but, unfortunately, the difference in timezones means many people won't participate. I've tried Hangout and streaming. neither have really worked well due to timezones :/ It's not really realistic until we get more active artists and make a free platform out of "hangouts". I.e. I don't have to be there to host and people can just join and draw for fun

Commission artists and Artist Feature

This report, and several of the ones to come, I would like to feature Brotherhood artists.

This time it's: Alara Deathbaneh. Check out the devArt page, like, share, enjoy, talk to her about it. Our artists are awesome and they need support. Next time I’ll feature someone else.

Alara's latest work (so cool xD):

Closing word

That’s it for now, folks. This is your friendly neighborhood Herald, signing out.

See you, space cowboys!

All,

This is just a quick note to let everyone know that we have identified an issue with the Phase 2 GJW competition sponsored by the Shadow Academy, Blast from the Past. When the course was enabled for the beginning of the competition, a coding error tripped autograding on. This also allowed people to retake the exam. The issue has been corrected. Retake scores will be tossed out and only original scores will be used for placement in the competition. I'm working with James to also pull times for completion to use for tie-breaking.

We apologize for the error, and thank the eagle-eyed member who caught it.

Nancora Space
On board the Skylla
Collective Flagship

Captain Sul Pahlee studied the battle against the combined strength of the Brotherhood’s Clans with a fist clenched at his side.

Despite Rath’s careful planning and all the traps they had laid, the Brotherhood was more coordinated than they had anticipated. While the Clans did not move as one cohesive force–or anything resembling an organized singular fleet for that matter–they were not firing on one another. In their own disparate ways, each Clan fleet was focusing efforts on punching through the Collective’s defensive formation around Nancora’s orbit. No single Clan seemed to be responsible for the successful strike, but whatever loose temporary allegiance they had formed he was sure would not last for long.

Indeed. Sul had no doubt that once the dust settled, there would be dissent among the Clan’s. Fingers would be pointed, and they would quickly fall back on their petty squabbles. This was why Sul Pahlee had defected from the Iron Navy to follow Rath. The Collective was everything that the Brotherhood could become, if only they could unite and rally behind a singular vision and purpose. That was a topic for another day, however.

Captain Pahlee had more pressing matters at hand. The Braga had been destroyed. Brotherhood forces managed to infiltrate modified heavy cruiser and disabled it’s prototype systems. With the powercore overloaded, it had burst into a brilliant cloud of fire and shrapnel, taking out two other cruisers in Battle Group Abellio.

Just like that, years of careful research and development were suddenly gone. The engineers, of course, had insisted on seeing their work in action, so there was no telling how many of those minds were now floating uselessly in the void. Pahlee did not know their names, really. He did not know all of their families. But he knew that Rath Oligard did. Pahlee felt a tinge of pride knowing that after it was all over, Rath would take the time to acknowledge each of the affected families. Personally. It was just another one of the many reasons Pahlee trusted Rath and believed so feverently in his cause.

“Captain: enemy ships are breaking through our blockade and proceeding towards the surface,” a tactical officer called out across the bridge.

“Understood,” Pahlee nodded once to himself as his mind churned mechanically through battle logistics. “Lieutenant: inform the Supreme Leader and alert General Diss’are to prepare the ground forces. ” The Zabrak captain’s eyes flicked towards the readouts to his left. “Have the Caladi and Kamea cover the Jamai. We can’t lose another prototype like that.” Pahlee made a decisive chopping motion with his hand for emphasis.

“And what of the remaining ships?” the officer called back.

“Show them what a true navy looks like,” Captain Pahlee replied cooly. The crew responded with a unified verbal salute of solidarity.

Phase II - Go

Phase II is in full swing. See the Grand Master’s latest news post as a primer.

Phase II - Fiction


Fiction - Survival - This a really unique event. The prompt is a Scenario, which means there is a bit more structure than a typical prompt would have. I left a few things open ended, and tried to allow for as much flexibility and creativity as possible for you as writers. If you have any questions at all please let me know.

I will reiterate the Special Condition for this event:

The winning entry in this competition will have the chance (at the author's discretion) to become the survivor that becomes canonized as part of the Great Jedi War XII: Retribution official storyline!

Basically, this means that even though all of you are writing for the same prompt, the winning entry (with the authors permission of course) will get added to the GJWXII storyline and become a part of DB Canon history :).


Event Long Events

Combat Writing Prompt - These are being graded by the Combat Master, and serve as an easy way to earn participation credit for members that aren't ACC Qualified or weren't able to get in on the Phase I ACC Ladder!


Run-On - If you're having problems forming a team, contact your Clan Summit. 2-person teams are eligible to garner participation credit, they just wont' be able to place.


Wally's Run-On tips:
  1. Half the event is already over. Do not leave everything to the last day. Trust me.
  2. Each member needs to post three (3) times to qualify. Remember that the minimum word requirement per post is 250 words. So, instead of stressing too much on making everything work perfectly in the opening posts, focus on shorter posts to make sure everyone is able to get their three posts in. Just one of many approaches to doing a team writing event like this.
  3. Back and forth transitions between writers is the fun, unique part of ROs. Make sure you are having fun, and don't stress so much on planning/outlines. Otherwise you never start, or start late, and end up rushing your outline.
  4. Have fun. ROs are really unique and even if you don't win, they are where I personally have drawn a lot of character development from. It was a cross-unit RO where I first met Atra, actually. I won't forget it, and it probably lead to our long term friendship as peers and leaders in the club.

Final Words

If you guys have any questions, the Dark Council is here to answer your questions. We had some really amazing turnouts for events in Phase I. I personally was shocked to get 80 fiction entires. I've read through over half of them and am very proud of our society in terms of quality and execution. Please make me drown in more fictions. Nothing makes me happier, and as usual if you have questions please, please let me know. I’m excited to see what you guys can bring to the table for the next round.

Show us what you got.

Final Comments

The Great Jedi War always brings a heightened state of emotions and it is easy for all of us to lose our temper. Members are competing for individual glory and to support their friends/Clans, Consuls are doing their best to look out for their members, and the DC is doing their best to make sure the events are going off without a hitch. I just ask that everyone remember that the DJB's purpose is for all of us to have fun in a Star Wars setting. Enjoy the competition, enjoy the fellowship, but don't go overboard.

The scoring so far (what I've seen) is very close and at this time I am very confident in saying that no single Clan is running away with this war. I wish all of you the best of luck in the remaining weeks.

Phase I Ending Soon!

Greetings all,

As the weekend gets underway, time is running out on Phase I! Phase I ends on 10/30 and there is a brief break before Phase II picks up on Friday of next week. Now is the time to put the finishing touches on submissions and ensure you pick up the participation bonus from submitting to at least one competition per bin in Phase I! Remember, you can check the GJW XII parent competition to make sure you've participated in all Phase I bins.

Battle Plan Phase I Due 10/30

The Regent has asked that I remind everyone that although the Battle Plan runs the duration of the entire event, the first half entries are due 10/30! Members/teams must submit to this first phase of the BP if they want to place. Members may still enter a battle plan for Phase II for participation only.

Nancora / Axio Clarification

We inadvertently listed Nancora's atmosphere as Type 1/Type 4 in earlier versions of the Nancora wiki page. This was a typo; the atmosphere of the planet is Type 1. However, the air around Axio is so toxic and irradiated environmental suits are required in this region, which will be clear in competition details where relevant. If environmental suits are required in other areas of the planet by a prompt, we will make that clear in the prompt.

Heroes of the Storm: First round matches due 10/30!

As the heading says, the first round of Heroes of the Storm matches are due on 10/30. The Fist has asked me to remind everyone there are no extensions for these matches!

As always, please don't hesitate to ask us any questions you have, and good luck!
