As we wait for the results of the GJW, take break, relax and enjoy. You all deserve it! As always if you need anything at all, please feel free to email or message me on telegram. ([Log in to view e-mail addresses]) Till next time remember,
"On Wings of Hate, We Deliver Pain..."

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!
Greetings Everyone, The GJW's conclusion is rapidly approaching and will hit in roughly ten hours. Please be sure to get in those last minute entries. You can check the remaining time on the competition page. Be sure you have your time zone...
The GJW's conclusion is rapidly approaching and will hit in roughly ten hours. Please be sure to get in those last minute entries. You can check the remaining time on the competition page. Be sure you have your time zone updated on your dossier for the time to actually be right for you!
Good luck. We can't wait to read the final entries.
There are 2 days left to complete everything you can for the GJW. This is doable, and you should do it if you can. I just completed nearly everything for Phase II in about an hour. Participation counts massively for our ranking in the end of this...
There are 2 days left to complete everything you can for the GJW. This is doable, and you should do it if you can. I just completed nearly everything for Phase II in about an hour. Participation counts massively for our ranking in the end of this event, so I implore you to do your part for Naga Sadow. This is our time.
Recommendations: For graphics, don't be ashamed to draw something on a piece of paper, take a photo with your phone and upload that as your submission. This is legal and, regardless of placement, will net you participation points for the event.
Also, don't forget that Run-Ons require 3 posts from every member in order to qualify as an eligible submission. At this stage in the War it isn't helpful to get too caught up in the details if you're behind on submission numbers. Better to get eligible submissions than to carefully craft the world's best Run-On only to find out that you aren't eligible for placement at all. Get those posts in and get moving!
Disciples of Dakhan rankings will be calculated after the War, as it is impossible to include placements without the competitions having been judged yet. You are all doing fantastically, though.
Message from the office of the Aedile, Jurdan Krennel
Greetings Shar Dakhan and Naga Sadow alike.
It has been an interesting war so far. Lots of killing going on, lots of puzzling, lots of warring. Let’s do our best to get our numbers up for phase 2. We want to make sure that everyone is having fun as well so just do what you can and remember that every little bit helps our cause. So far I believe the numbers show we have maybe 13 people who haven’t done anything which hey, people have stuff to do am I right? That means however a big portion of the clan has submitted something for the war and that is great!
We have puzzles and we have games. We have 1v1 battles now for any approved game on the bot except JA and Pazaak since there were comps run for those already. Just remember that if you do something that is timed, only do it if you have the time. Fastest submissions for the win yall!
We shall see the end of the war soon and I wish you all the best and lets win this for Naga Sadow!
Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;
Or close the wall up with our English dead.
In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility:
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with hard-favour'd rage;
Then lend the eye a terrible aspect;
Let pry through the portage of the head
Like the brass cannon; let the brow o'erwhelm it
As fearfully as doth a galled rock
O'erhang and jutty his confounded base,
Swill'd with the wild and wasteful ocean.
Now set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide,
Hold hard the breath and bend up every spirit
To his full height. On, on, you noblest English.
Whose blood is fet from fathers of war-proof!
Fathers that, like so many Alexanders,
Have in these parts from morn till even fought
And sheathed their swords for lack of argument:
Dishonour not your mothers; now attest
That those whom you call'd fathers did beget you.
Be copy now to men of grosser blood,
And teach them how to war. And you, good yeoman,
Whose limbs were made in England, show us here
The mettle of your pasture; let us swear
That you are worth your breeding; which I doubt not;
For there is none of you so mean and base,
That hath not noble lustre in your eyes.
I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
Straining upon the start. The game's afoot:
Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
Cry 'Force for Brotherhood, Dakhan, and Naga Sadow!'
Quaestor, House Shar Dakhan
P.S. Did you know Shakespeare was a Sadowan?

House Satele Shan Combined Report 3 November 2017!
Welcome to the November 2017 House Satele Shan combined GJW report!
I hear your drums beating loud ODANITES and your humility still remains!
This reports motivation music comes from Dropkick Murphys with a song called I'm Shipping Up To Boston for one of our final motivational music for the GJW HERE. Set your competition music for this GJW and go out there and reach for the stars!
If you don't go after it, you will never have it
It has been one heck of a GJW. You all have come so far and have truly shown your spirit in all of this. Win, or lose I am so proud of how all the Satellites have been performing. The WAR isn't over yet though. As of writing this report you have 2 Days to get those final submissions in.
Do not worry if you haven't participated yet, or haven't had the time. Even submitting to 1 competition counts. Read further and I will list the easiest ways to help your House and Clan earn participation points in just a matter of minutes and you will have fun doing it too!
ACC Event Bin still has a competition you can do
I wanted to highlight in this section that you can participate in the “Event Long: Combat Writing: Collective Strike even if you didn't participate in the ACC prelims. Some members have come forward not knowing they could do this event. I wanted to mention it is a easy solo 1v1 combat fiction with you versus one of the NPCs listed in the competition details and it only requires 500 words. This submission will help contribute 3 points in Clan participation. Check out the competition HERE. If you have any questions please let me know
GJW and Participation points
We have had a major turn out in Phase 1, but that doesn't mean we can relax on Phase 2. Review results from the last GJW. House Odan-Urr at the time was in 3rd place. By the end of that last phase 2 and the results for GJW XI were posted we slipped to 5th place. Our start has been strong and now is the final push! The time is now for attempting to hit 1 competition in each bin ODANITES! Every submission no matter how litte, or skillfully you complete it. We got this if we work together.
So participation points I summarized in a user friendly way in my last report for Phase 1 to highlight competitions that don't require a lot of time, skill, but net the Clan major points for participation.
Remember you do not have to do all the competitions. I know the website shows many, but all we need is 1 competition in each individual bin as your time permits.
Currently, there are 8 bins left that you can participate in with various competitions in them. The Run-on competition would be the only hard one to complete, but if your still interested e-mail me ASAP and I will see if we can muster some free members to form a team for you.
Your summit is here to help answer any questions you have if you’re not sure of something. Please do not hesitate to ask.

Competitions 27 bonus for event 5
8 bins, 15 individual competitions are still open to participate, and a total of 27 individual possible points and 5 bonus points if you do only 1 competition in each bin. Every point counts from every member and will also help boost our Clan credit supply for each bin a member participates in. These credits will be used to buy even more ships, assets, and more pew pews for the Odanites!
Remember you only need to do 1 competition in each unique bin. All of the competitions are not required
- Main GJW Link The GJW ends November 20th Thats 2 days from now folks! Let's get out there and do it!
Unique Bin 1(Solo Combat Fiction) worth 4 points
- Combat Writing runs through November 20th. A lot of people thought this was only allowed if you made the ACC, but that is not the case. Any member can participate and you only need to write a minimum of 500 words detailing your individual combat against one of the enemy NPCs listed in the competitions description.
Unique Bin 2(Gaming: Pazaak) worth 2 points
- Pazaak runs until November 20th. Play 5 easy matches at a minimum with another member in the DJB.
Unique Bin 3(Build A Thing, Narrate A Thing, Etc.) worth 5 points
- There are 4 competitions in this bin. The goal is to choose 1 at a minimum, but if you can do all of them then you would be positioning yourself for more awards and the Clan for more points/credits.
- Comic pull out your skills with a comic based on the GJW timeline.
- The Maker let your creative soul out and create something appearing in the GJW timeline.
- In a World calling all voice actors. Make a recording of a fiction, or story in the GJW timeline.
Unique Bin 4(Run-on Fiction) worth 5 points
- Run-on runs through November 20th. If you need help signing up shoot me or Len an email and I can get you coordinated with a team.
Unique Bin 5(Solo Fiction) worth 4 points
- Multi-Objective Fiction runs through November 20th. Write a minimum of 500 words in a fiction that has to do with you crash landing on the Collective's planet called Nancora. I know we have a lot of great fiction writers out there and this competition is worth 26% in placement points. The largest of all the competitions and by almost double points from the next competition even close to it.
Unique Bin 6(Mobile, Diablo 3, and Destiny 2) worth 2 points
- 1v1 PvP runs through November 20th. Gaming competition against other members of the DJB, but not from your own Clan in anything that allows 1 versus 1 player. Force Arena is a free one, but need to be level 3 which is easy to get and to be invited to the guild. Please do not wait till the last day on this one as it will be harder to complete. Other options that are free include Star Conflict, Star Craft, SWTOR, and anything else besides Pazaak and JA since they have event long competitions running currently.
- Diablo 3 Greater Rift runs through November 20th. You will attempt to run the highest solo greater rift possible utilizing a Seasonal character. Season 12 begins on 9 November, so you have plenty of time to gear yourself up and take a run at the Greater Rift leaderboard. You can run the rift on any toon you want.
- Destiny Crucible Efficiency runs through November 20th. You will showcase your skill in Destiny 2's Crucible. You will submit a screenshot showing your highest efficiency earned in a single match. You must play that match with random members. You may not have another member of the DB in your group, as this could potentially lead to kill feeding. DB member is defined as a member of the club, not just a member of the Destiny 2 Clan.
Unique Bin 7(Graphics/Drawing) worth 3 points
- The Battle of Nancora runs through November 20th. This one you create a landscape image of a battle on Nancora. Stick figures can be used and are easy to do if your short on time. Check out one of the quick and easy to do images by our very own Proconsul Arch below. Still, counts as participation and humor can still help you place high!
- Armor of the Elite runs through November 20th. Create a vehicle based on walkers, speeders, grav-vehicles, starfighters with modifications if you like that would be more against Force Users. Against stick figure vehicles count. Yes that's a thing!
“If you hear a voice within you say "you cannot paint," then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.” —Vincent Van Gogh
Unique Bin 8(SA exam, Web hunt, Puzzle) worth 2 points
Blast from the Past runs through **November 20th. Fun Shadow Academy exam. *We regret to Inform You runs through **November 20th. Write a letter from the Master-at-Arms to a fictional relative of your character about their death and speak to your characters accomplishments. **Minimum 250 words* Puzzle runs through **November 20th*. Odanites love puzzles. If you haven’t had a chance to get this fun one in then check it out before it ends.
Well, folks, I tried sorting out the different bins. Remember 1 competition from each bin is where we earn Clan participation points for the GJW. The more you participate in will only boost the Clans chances at more points and your chances are higher rewards in the GJW and post GJW rewards when the Summit will be submitting for all participating members. GJW activity is counted higher due to the prestige, so the more you do the better Len and I can work to get you those shinies and promotions. Have fun, be humble, and do not be afraid to submit. Every submission counts and could be those few points that matter in the end.
The last 100 meters of the GJW XII race. We can see the finish line, keep our game faces on! For those of you in Telegram, I made a post with links to all remaining comps as a quick reference. We all have our part to play in pushing Odan-Urr to the top!

Activity Report for GJW October 2017
You all have done great work. Don't let off the gas yes. We will cross this finish line together and enjoy all we have achieved together. Due to the prestige of GJW participation, I will mention our members who submitted to at least 1 competition in each bin for Phase 1. Many of you were close to to getting all 4 bins. Keep it up and there is always the event long and phase 2 bins to earn the bonus! I look forward next month recognizing all of you as the reason we had a blast in the GJW and placed well.
Special shout out to members who participated in all Phase 1 bins
Keep up the great work!
Due to the GJW, I will not be listing activity since activity within units during the GJW is somewhat hidden for a reason. Next report I will combine all GJW activity in the post GJW report.

Well, it’s been a fast start to the GJW and we are only 2 days away from the end of the GJW XII on November 20th at 1959 GMT. If you have free time to spare, or you are looking for something to do this weekend then you are in luck.
Everyone has busy schedules and real life always comes first. Just focus one 1 competition at a time when time allows and have fun with it. I'm so very proud of all of you and how far we have come a during this war.
This event only comes around every couple of years and I know every one of you can do big things. There are at least 3 competitions that can be done in around 5 minutes each depending on how much time you invest into them. I have knocked out some of these easy competitions while on lunch break, in the morning drinking my coffee, and even sitting in bed on my laptop watching TV at night. I encourage you all to dive in even if you only have 10 minutes a day to do so.
If you get a chance please give a special shout out to our own Rollmisstress Blade who earned first place recently in a long, hard, and well fought Jedi Academy bracket. Gold Novae coming your way sista! I'm excited and hopeful for all of our members to have a great shot at Novae after the war ends as well. The more you submit to the better your chances. Well thats it for now folks! Until next time folks keep up the great work and JUST DO IT!

I'm going to keep this report short and sweet since we all have a lot on our plates right now. Great Jedi War 12 is in its last weekend and my message is quite simple:
While I appreciate that you might not place in every event, it's very important to the clan that you at least submit to all the bins. I'm not even asking for all the things, just one thing in each category. To prove a point, I'll admit something that isn't exactly a secret, I can't draw. I've tried, I may have even drawn a passable Verpine head once, but I just don't got it. If you can draw something that looks vaguely like what they're asking for, it counts. Use crayon if you have to (we might even have the official motivational crayon drawing around somewhere). Not the greatest fiction writer? Give it a whirl anyway, it just needs to be 500 words. Just get em in folks.
Useful End Of War Info
There's been several notes from the Dark Council of late that contain useful tips ad tricks.
Battleplan: Our illustrious Grand Master (and real life Army Officer) gave some tips as to writing the battleplan. The tldr on that, throw out the modern army handbook as this is space war. Also, if you submitted to part 1, check your email for a note from Evant.
Gaming: Dracpool put out a report with some gaming info. Tldr, just go play stuff and don't whine about BF2
Fiction: Our favorite small dog lover has posted a fiction and some other info. Read this one, no tldr.
Moment of Zen and Final Thoughts
First, I wanted to mention that in true Plagueis fashion, due to my work schedule and having more fun with my fiction than I had planned, I've totally had to Brimstone this report. The old timers know what that means, though thankfully my screen is intact. As for the moment of Zen, I'll just leave this here. What is it? All I'll say is that llamas are involved.

Table of Contents
Greetings to my fellow Odanites, as well as possible onlookers from other units. Just yesterday (or still today, for those not on the east coast or further into the future), we had the seven year anniversary of the birth of Odan-Urr as a unit. Due to the fact that the war is still going, this report will be short and sweet — there’s very little of note to actually report. I’m very proud of the amount of effort everyone has put into these events, rising to the occasion (hence the title, which is indeed a Kiss song).
- Our lovely Consul released his report for October, just a matter of days after my last report. If you haven’t already done so, I highly suggest checking out these reports!
- Edgar released his eleventh report as Quaestor of House Hoth earlier this month.
- Keiji released his wartime report for the Wildcards!
- Our Grand Master announced the launch of Phase II (and some helpful links) almost two weeks ago, as well as a few helpful tips for those participating in the Battleplan.
- Our Deputy Grand Master (also known as ‘Mav’) gave us an update on placement points in the Great Jedi War and an update to the prompt of Collective Strike, the Combat Writing Fiction for those who have the urge to write combat.
- The Fist (Dracpool) released his fourteenth report, as well as this and this update to gaming competitions in the Great Jedi War.
- The Headmaster of the Shadow Academy gave everyone a heads up on the Shadow Academy competition for the War. Make sure to read this if you’re participating.
- The Herald released his twenty-third report, full of shiny new weapons for your viewing pleasure.
- As is always the sad case when it comes to Vendettas, the Justicar office has been busy, with a warning about intra-clan gaming and they are looking for a new appeals panel, so be sure to apply for that.
- The Regent tells how your participation earns your Clan Credits.
- Our Voice released chapters three and four of the overall storyline of this Great Jedi War! Be sure to give these a read!
For further competitions or if you’re reading this a few days after I posted my report, check here for a list of competitions. There will always be end dates attached to each competition for your ease of decision making on which competitions you would like to sign up for. All Competitions End At 1859/6:59pm CDT.
House / Clan

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:
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.

1) Go play your matches
2) No, seriously, you are holding up an event. Go play your matches.
3) Oh hey, Battlefront 2! Or is it 4? Do the super old ones count? I don’t know.
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.
P.S. GO PLAY YOUR MATCHES!!!

Hello my fellow Pallians, our colleagues in Karness Muur and onlookers from the outside. Before I go over the contents for the report I apologise this is a couple days late, I was getting ready to write this a couple of days ago while the dog was incessantly barking so I took him for a walk to shut him up. By the time I got back I forgot what I was going to do and got back onto working on some war stuff. THat being said it's no excuse and I'll make sure to be on time next month. In this month's report, I'll be going to cover the war, as well as the earnings of our members, happenings from elsewhere in the club and the monthly dose of history stuff. So without further adieu, let's get right into it.
So yeah, the thing is almost over. The last day of the war will be the 20th of November, just over a weeks time from now. To find the things that you can do (and there's at least a few everyone should be able to do) follow this conveniently placed link you'll notice that each bin will tell you if you've participated in it as well as the individual competitions. This is a handy way of tracking things that look promising moving forward. Also, you'll notice since the start of the war the site got a swanky gold makeover, hopefully this sticks around in some form post war because I personally like the look of it.
Promotions, Medals, Crescents and Clusters
- Silent 5 Clusters of Fire
- Taranae Rhode 17 Clusters of Fire
- Kelly Mendes 1 Pendant of Blood, 561 Clusters of Fire, 3 Clusters of Ice and 6 Clusters of Graphite
- Azmodius Equesinfernum 4 Clusters of Fire and 5 Clusters of Earth
This section is a bit light because war stuff isn't distributing awards until everything has been judged so expect a juicier section next month.
HAPpenings from around the Club
- Herald releases some stuff (bunch of curved lightsbaers and a few pew pews).Report
- GJW Chapter 4 fiction here
- Ceiling Jac opened a application thing
Time for some edumacation! On this day
Heading towards the various holidays next month, and to lift up after the festival of death that was October, here are some births on the 1oth of November throughout history. * 1483- Future leader of the Protestant Reformation Martin Luther was born on the 1oth of November
1919- Mikhail Kalashnikov, the man who would go on to design the AK-47 was born
1955 saw the birth of Roland Emmerich.
1968 saw both Tracy Morgan and Tom Papa born
That is all for this month, but with the last day of the war on Az's report day, I look forward to seeing you emerge from the metaphorical trenches with me. Until next month, when we'll be 5 days out from The Last Jedi, get hyped!

House Liath Mid-GJW12 Report
Welcome to a brief update for House Liath in Clan Tarentum. In the midst of the 12th Great Jedi War, we are very busy with our Clan and Brotherhood in taking on the Collective. But I wanted to highlight some of the things people have done over the last little while (roughly the start of October).
I am your Aedile, since late September, following in Etah’s footsteps as he takes over as Quaestor. My real name is Chris and my standard descriptor for myself is: Christian, Husband, Father, IT Manager, Star Wars Nut, Adjunct Faculty, and Gadget Freak. I have been in DJB about a year and a half and have been quite heavily involved during the times I was active. I love this club, especially writing and doing sketches, and I hope I can help Liath and Tarentum as much as possible.
If you ever need anything, catch me on Discord or email and I am quite prompt to reply. Otherwise, let’s dig in to a few brief details. A more thorough report will happen next time.
Ok, that’s what I want to hear at the end of this thing. I share Beef’s enthusiasm in that we can do this.
It’s not too late to get in there and help. Participation points and late-phase wins are still helpful. On the whole though, as you’ll see below, I think Liath is fairly decently engaged in the war. I’m just going to put the main competition link below, because it links to everything you need to know.
Just get in there and do things. I’m not a huge “do all the things” person, but do something or several somethings. It’s fun and every little bit helps.
Liath. Eden City. Adrestia and Xolarin. Watch out! Once this war settles down, we have some work to do in Eden to grow the House and grow the Clan. Things are just getting started, so sit tight and stay tuned.
Since October 1st, and this will include some GJW stuff, we have done the following amongst our active House members:
- 95 Competition participation
- 7 Crescents
- 234 Clusters (go Ranarr!)
- 4 Awards
- 71 PvP/PvE Battles (go Ranarr!)
- 1 ACC battle (go me lol)
- 11 Course passes
- 3 Degrees earned
The top 5 active folks, based mostly on Clusters (although looking at other categories), would be:
Again, some of this (comp participation) is from the GJW, but it’s still a testament to our awesome House and involvement therein.
