I am pleased to announce the elevation of our Combat Master, Atra Ventus, to the ranks of our Elders. For the last twenty months, Atra has served the Brotherhood as Combat Master and as an integral part of both my team and Grand Master Pravus' before me. Atra has been essential not only to the ACC, but also to our character systems and to our fictional development. Moreover, Atra has been an excellent advisor and a trusted friend. Atra's contributions since his last promotion have been well-detailed before, and it is my great honor to promote Atra to the rank of Dark Adept.
Please join me in congratulating Atra on Dark Adept!

I would like to begin this communique with a note of thanks. I want to thank Etah Kilij Bloodfyre for his service as Quaestor to House Shar Dakhan over the last six months. As the members of House Shar Dakhan are doubtlessly aware, Etah has decided to step down down from the position of Quaestor. Real life ravages the best of us and as such, we both thank him and wish Etah the best in his future endeavors.
This would of course leave the position of Quaestor open. After some deliberation, Ashia and myself have decided that we will be moving Darkhawk from the position of Aedile of the House to that of Quaestor.
As that now leaves us without an Aedile, the Summit will be opening applications for the position of Aedile in House Shar Dakhan to both members of Clan Naga Sadow and the Brotherhood.
An Aedile Vacancy: What Do We Expect?
The universal expectations of an Aedile are as follows:
- Setting the example to your members in both activity and attitude
- Keep regular communication with the House membership through both email and Telegram
- Assisting the Quaestor in the evaluation for and composition of recommendations. This will covers both promotions and merit awards the members of your House.
- Assist in planning, running, and promoting competitions for your House.
- Assist in developing House lore and maintaining our wiki page(s). You will also serve as acting Quaestor in the absence of the Quaestor.
- Why are you a fit for this position?
- Relevant leadership or project experience in or beyond the DJB.
- Any ideas you have for improving or developing the House. A 30/60/90 plan won’t be required.
- Any time constraints we would need to be aware of and to top it off things about you, what makes you tick and drives you forward.
What we are looking for in competitive candidates:
- Must be an active member
- Must maintain a good turnaround time on communications (email, Telegram, etc.) with a regular 24-hour response time
- Must be willing to promote activity, membership engagement, fictional development, and open lines of communication
- Must produce competitions, fictional updates, and be comfortable with updating the Wiki page
- Must set a good example for the membership
- No minimum rank is required, however!
Things considered an asset:
- Shadow Academy Leadership coursework passed (in particular, the courses under the Maven of Leadership completed)
- An understanding of Markdown (the SA has not one but two courses available for this as well)
- Any additional credentials that support your DJB side of the application
- Any up front questions you may have
You will have until October the 7th to get your application for Aedile in to Darkhawk ([Log in to view e-mail addresses]).
If you have any questions, feel free to hit me up on Telegram (@Djb_benny) or email.
Again, you have until the end of day on Monday, October 7th to get your applications in for consideration. As always, we reserve the right to select an applicant before the closing of applications if we receive a particularly fitting applicant, so I would advise you get your application in promptly if you want to be sure to be considered.
Thank you all for your time. Again, I want to thank Etah for his service.
I remain, as ever, your Servant in Darkness,
Consul of Naga Sadow

Hello there Muurmen and Muurwomen, welcome to my second Quaestor report!

It’s thanks to you putting in the time and submitting as well as your friendly competitiveness that the Pro Bowl has become the beast that it is today.

With the Pro Bowl over our focus as a clan has shifted back to the Song Of Discord run-on. Everyone took a break to gather their thoughts but it looks like the drought is over as we have seen a flurry of posts over the last few days. Remember, this is designed to give you an opportunity to have a hand in shaping the future of our clan and guiding the current events.
But don’t be intimidated.
If you are worried about your place in the grand scheme of things or lacking ideas, there are a multitude of people willing to help, whether it’s needing to bounce a quick idea off of someone, looking for a writing partner or looking for a proofer DO NOT hesitate to ask.

The Blade sends
Already a full month since my last report? Time just flies when you're having fun it seems. We have a few new members adding to the HAP ranks, some awards of note and some great competitions for you all to work at.
It makes me feel so proud to be working with all the fantastic members In the DJB and especially in Ajunta Pall itself. We have a fantastic summit to boot, and that's what makes Plagueis stand out : the team as a whole. Not just one member slogging their hearts out gaming, writing and such and holding us up above everyone else, but everyone working as a team and doing all these things together. It's so heart-warming to see everyone joining in, having fun and being friends. Together we are the pillars that support Plagueis. Now lets get out there and do what we're good at : being the BEST!
A little teaser for you: Tahiri of Karness Muur and I will shortly be launching a competition for both houses to compete in. A simple graphics competition but it will of course earn you the much needed participation and crescents needed to raise your rank in the club. Keep your eyes peeled for more of this soon™!
Remember the Clan RO is still ongoing too. Get a post in and see if you can cement yourself into the Clan lore! The link for the Run On will be in the competition links below. Go on, you can do it!

The sixth Aedile report Muz has written, wherein he reminds you that the Dark Flame event is ending soon, Brags about a new member, talks about canon stuffs, and other various and sundry house related items.
First thing's first.
If you didn't see it, Marka Ragnos has a new member. Jenazar Tahjen-kaar is our newest Sith, and they have been absolutely wrecking face, getting promoted three times in two days, ranking up in the Shadow Academy and generally making our email accounts sing happy songs all day long. I am proud and happy about this, and hopefully we will see them on telegram or in our runons soon.
Also, big congratulations go to our Quaestor, Koji for his recent addition to his medal case, a shiny Steel Cross. Well done!
In this edition of the Marka Ragnos Aedile report, I am going to talk a bit more about the old legends surrounding our namesakes and how they relate to each other. The history of where we came from is important, especially as we drive forward.
While we are Clan Naga Sadow, there are some who believe, (and in my opinion, rightfully so) that Marka Ragnos far surpassed his apprentice in power. In the Golden age of the Sith (The legends place this at about 5000 years before the battle of Yavin), Marka Ragnos ruled 'with an iron fist', and was called 'the most powerful of the most powerful', which would have included his apprentice, the Naga Sadow that our clan is named for and his rival Ludo Kressh as well as other Lords he had supplanted before his hundred year reign of the Sith Empire.
Marka Ragnos' power was such that as Naga Sadow and Ludo Kressh dueled over the fate of his empire, even dead, both Lords bowed down, fully aware that the mere ghost of the Sith Lord could kill them both. In fact, his appearance as a Force Ghost sent such shockwaves through the Force that Odan-Urr (yes, the Jedi for whom the Lightside clan is named) felt the disturbance on the other side of the galaxy, sending nightmarish visions into the Jedi Master.
That is some serious power.
Even Vitiate (the black-eyed nobody from a backwater planet that turned out to be so powerful that he could eat planets...sounds familiar?), later known as the Sith Emperor, and primary antagonist in The Old Republic MMO, considered the ghost of Marka Ragnos as powerful enough to pose a threat to him when he consolidated power a hundred years later.
In one of the old mainstay games of the Dark Brotherhood, Jedi Outcast, the Ghost of Marka Ragnos was powerful enough to possess a dark side acolyte, granting her immense power in a bid to resurrect himself, something that Luke Skywalker fears intensely in the game (this was pre-disney, when there was a New Jedi Order, as opposed to the current canon, where none of that happened).
So, why do we have the Clan Naga Sadow, as opposed to Marka Ragnos? There is a good reason for that, above and beyond Astronicus liking the last name of Sadow more than Ragnos. You see, the Sith Empire under Ragnos had been stable, solidifying control over their worlds, strengthening and coordinating efforts effectively. Yet Ragnos, for all of his power, was perfectly content to let the Empire they had flourish. Naga Sadow had a different philosophy, seeking to expand the empire and take more worlds under their control, challenging the Republic for dominance in the galaxy.
And he would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for those dang Daragon kids... But that's a story for next time.
Dark Flame, an event organized by Night Hawks BTL Locke ends in a few short days, which means there are a lot of credits up or grabs, as well as medals, promotion opportunities, bragging rights and credits. Oh, and credits, too.
There's four comps, graphics, fiction, gaming and trivia, so there is literally something for everyone.
The link for the competition container can be found here: https://www.darkjedibrotherhood.com/competitions/14187
Bentre asks: "How would you suggest newer members kick into ROs and other cooperative fiction more easily?"
Honestly, I would suggest that they just jump in. Write up an intro post, who you are, what you are doing, and send it to another clanmate or two for proofing and making sure it isn't doing something off the wall. Runons can get tricky, so I guess a more important bit of advise is to be a bit more flexible with your expectations on what you want to have happen in a runon. They often react unpredictably, and rarely go completely to plan...which can be really fun, so long as you don't have rigid expectations. Also, don't be afraid to suck. We all did, once upon a time, and it is by doing that we all learn to get better.
DarkHawk asks: "How important is Alchemy skill in an assassins skill set"
Alchemy can be mighy useful, especially in a stealth-kill sort of build. Poisons are obvious winners for assassins, and alchemy can help take that skill up another level (and has the benefit of all that cool darkity dark side mwa-hahahaha-ness, as a bonus). That said, I don't think it is absolutely critical to general assassin builds, if you don't want to go down the poison-y route. But that is up to your own personal preferences.
Calenhad asks: "What are your thoughts on CNS moving forward as a golden age Sith Empire?"
Obviously, if you have been reading my reports, you'll know that I am a big fan of the old and ancient sith empires and lore. So naturally, I am a big fan of this new direction for the clan. Not only is it something that isn't used in the rest of the club, but it is something that I know we can do better than anything else based on myriad reasons, from the namesakes of our clan and houses, our historic roles in the Brotherhood as stewards of ancient lore, and in general being wicked awesome space wizards. So, I am rather excited, both personally and for the clan.
Marick Tyris (VOICE!) asks: "do I get a DC for this?"
I am pretty sure howie would choke that request out with ALL THE STAMPS. (Wally here is joking about how when i was GM I would give out Dark Crosses to particularly good questions that I could answer in my GM reports. It was phased out as I retired, as it was entirely too generous.)
• Dark Flame runs until the 21st
• Congrats to new member Jenazar • Congrats to Koji for his SC
• Get involved! Email me!
Otherwise, keep having fun out there, and let me know if I can help with anything.

Aylin's new position
Hello all, welcome to my very first report in what seems like ages. Don't have fancy banners yet, but that will change soon enough. For now you get the boring layout ;)
It was early in the morning.Between snores, Aylin shifted and with her a dozen haphazard droid parts scattered around her. She could have slept for hours longer if it weren't for the pneumatic shaft digging in her ribs. She groaned and threw the thing away. Squirming slightly she made herself comfortable again and dozed off.
Suddenly the door opened. Jorm stood there as a big silhouette, light flooding into the darkened room from behind him.
“On your feet, miss Giggles!” Jorm voice boomed into the room, “You are requested in comm room. Five minutes ago!”
Aylin startled awake, hitting her head against her desk light and groaning loudly in pain, “What is happening!?”
“No questions, get moving!” With that, Jorm disappeared out the door.
Grunting, Aylin rubbed her head and got up, “What the hell is he up to this time?”
Walking out of her room and glanced both ways before continuing on towards the comm’s room. The closer she got to the room the more noise could be heard. Rough laughter a sound somewhere between a rancor's roar and a dewback's moan filled her ears. She almost wanted to turn back. Bale was laughing at one of his stories again. When she reached the door there was a note stuck on it.
** Congrats on your new position, it’s now your task to keep them in check. At the bottom it was signed with a joker face.**
She read it once, twice, three times and would have read it a fourth if it wasn't for the comm buzzing in her datapad.
Jorm’s face got into view. “Ah, I see you read the note! Good luck, Battle Team Leader miss Giggles,” Jorm said in his jovial crazy voice. Before the connection got cut she heard engines screaming and disappear.
The door opened before her and Cali was standing in front of her. Looking her over she saw she looked kinda pale, if that was possible for her kind.
“Are you alright, Aylin?” Cali asked as Bale and the others joined up behind her.
Nodding slowly Aylin let out a mumble, “I’m Battleteam leader…”
Yup, there you have it, I became BTL. I'm looking forward to it and I'm sure I will do fine because I have some awesome people in my team.

To Seer, or not to Seer
CORVETTE REAPER’S CALL
The shuttle maintained its flight path as the Reaper’s Call hangar doors opened. The shuttle entered the hangar with meticulous precision. The massive bay doors closed as the shuttle made its way down the tarmac.
The shuttle pilot hailed his lone passenger, “Sir I think you should come up here and see this..”
The tall man sat up from his seat and headed towards the flight deck. His dark robes and tunic flowed as he walked the shuttle’s narrow corridor. Marcus Kiriyu is an earnest man, he has always been. It is what has defined him over the years, and saved his life more than once. He carried no emotion as he entered the flight deck.
The pilot greeted Marcus and then gestured to the scene unfolding out the main viewport. As Marcus leaned in a bit, the Sadowan saw a formation of people directly in front of the shuttle’s landing zone.
As they arrival party moved in closer, Marcus could see that his entire House Shar Dakhan were present. Forming at the front of the House members, stood Clan Naga Sadow’s Consul Bentre Stahoes, its ProConsul Ashia Keibatsu, Shar Dakhan’s Quaestor Etah Bloodfyre and the House Aedile Takagari KogaRyu.
“What in the world are they doing?” Marcus murmured to himself.
The pilot rotated the shuttle around in its landing zone so that the crew ramp was directly in front of the formation. The crew door opened and Marcus walked toward’s his Summit members, he stopped short of them and dropped to one knee.
Consul Bentre Stahoes spoke next. “Marcus Kiriyu, it is with great honor that we gather here today. You have displayed exceptional dedication, both in and out of the House. You have represented yourself in the highest manner, setting the example for others to follow on a regular basis. Here before your Clan and your House, it is of great pleasure for this Summit in welcoming Marcus to the third grade of the Equite ranks. Congratulations on Seer, Marcus!”
The formation of members broke into a boisterous cheer celebrating their brother on his accomplishment. Each of the Summit members approached the newly appointed Seer and shook his hand. As the Aedile of House approached, a small smile broke across Marcus’s face, “I am never going to get you to stop calling me Sir now am I?” the Seer said sarcastically.
“No Sir, not a chance” replied Takagari.
Well folks, as you can tell by the above, a HUGE SHOUT OUT TO MARCUS!!!! It was pretty cool to see that! Well done Sir, well done indeed! And if you have not figured it out, Marcus was promoted to Seer!
(Never gets old!!!)
Now on to your regularly scheduled programming…
Some great things over the past few weeks, first let me point out and send another volley of congratulations out to welcoming back our brother Xuner Holst back from Army BMT!!! Congratulations on a huge accomplishment! The House is glad that your back!

As you may have seen, I sent out an email in regards to our House Wiki-Project. I cannot wait to get this started with you all. I have been thumbing thru those pages and I have a few notes already. I will get them on a GDoc and share with you everyone so we can add to it as we identify our errors. Also regarding our wiki, I want to take a second and personally thank DarkBlade for going thru our Wiki and updating, as well as inputting the Discovery and Abomination events. So thank you, kind Sir, for taking the time and helping out your former Housemates! I also have to thank Malisane for bringing all of this to me. His attention to detail while bringing himself back up to speed on House history has opened my eyes to everything Wiki!
Our own Calenhad in conjunction with our Clan Summit has put together a pretty cool R/O storyline that everyone will have a blast taking part in that comp! You will find it in the link below with our other current comps. I have been seeing a lot of collaboration among our members with each other and outside of the House. Want every one of you to know that is pretty amazing to see. This process is how we come up with such great story/plot lines, cannot wait to see what comes to light of all your hard work.
If you have not seen already, I posted the Regent's report below. Make sure you check that out with all our new and updated content in possessions.
And now we break for a few words from our sponsors:
From the desk of the Consul, Clan Naga Sadow:

CNS Pecan Report #11
Encounter at Citadel was a lot of fun! We had some down time to unwind but now it’s back to business. We have to find a way to retake our home system! In doing so, we will be gathering as many resources as possible. We will be hunting for ancient artifacts, items that may give us an edge to reclaim what is ours. We will be trading and smuggling goods and services in an effort to rebuild our selves and keep us flying until we can get back home.

Psi Termina I
Inquisitorius Listener Ship
A pair of small blue figures pressed up against either side of the corridor walls, easily shrouded by the shadows cast from the harsh overhead lights. The first figure, an Aleena with a mottled burn mark on his left cheek made a series of quick hand gestures to the second figure who had the same pale blue skin as her counterpart. Sherine flashed the hand-sign for acknowledge and nodded once, carefully removing the pack from her shoulder and setting it down beneath her feet.
The Inquisitorius Listener ships were eerily quiet, the only sound lilting through the filtered air the steady metronomes of beeps, creeps, and faint sweeps from long range sensor equipment. The security on each ship had been lighter than expected, but Breek Trailm knew that his team needed to move carefully. One tripped alarm would blow their mission. Literally. Trailm was suddenly very aware of his own pack that carried the same lethal canisters that Sherine was busy planting. Breek loved nothing more than to wreak destruction through the art of demolition, and knew that it meant that one day, he would inevitably go out with a bang.
For the time being, however, he would prefer not to.
Sherine looked up and shouldered her pack. Nodding once, Breek Trailm tapped a button on his wrist-comm to confirm another successful plant. The wireframe map on the small screen shifted from red to green. Breek couldn’t help but smile. He had hand picked his team years ago for missions just like this. They had started with small jobs, but eventually were noticed by Daggo Mouk’s head of engineering. Gwendolyn — or “Sparks” as everyone called her — saw his team's potential and had finally given them the mission they all had dreamed of.
The Dark Brotherhood deserved what was coming for them, and Breek’s team all shared the same fiery devotion to the promises set forth by Rath Oligard and the Collective. The Brotherhood had, after all, hunted down Aleena like they were some kind of scourge in the Wild Space that they had “claimed” for their own. Oh yes, they would pay, and the Aleena Demolition Squad would be hailed as heroes within the Liberation Front.
“Are you sure these are going to work?” Sherine asked. “In their current state, these wouldn’t do much damage to a shuttle, let alone a whole surveillance vessel.”
Breek shook his head. “Exactly, which is why they won’t show up on any of their scanners. They will react to the right catalyst."
“It would need to be a pretty significant heat source...”
“We just need to trust Spark’s plan. Has she ever let us down?”
“No...I suppose not,” Sherine conceded. “Alright, let’s rendezvous with the rest of the team and get out of here.

- ...which is located inside the impregnable mountain that houses the core Dark Councilor offices and the Iron Throne.
- Marick Tyris, the leader of the Inquisitorius, is not pleased with losing to The Collective and wants more information.
- Ness’arin Ohnaka (no relation) explains the current situation in regards to the Brotherhood's efforts against The Collective. She is the NPC Director of Inquisitorius operations, functioning as the Voice’s second in command.
- Atra Ventus, Combat Master, is also present.
- Marick resolves that the Inquisitorius needs to be a visible threat to enemies of the Brotherhood, breaking away from the past perception that they were simply a task force for the GM’s bidding.
- Atra confirms that Operation: Tempered Iron is in motion, a hint to the ACC Competition that ties in to the larger storyline.
- Ness points out that stepping into the light will put a crosshair on Marick. The Voice is more than willing to take that chance to better show strength in the face of The Collective.
- Meanwhile, a small team of Aleena infiltrate one of the Inquisitorius Listener ships that help fuel the Advanced Inquisitorius Network. (AIN). The “Aleena Demolition Squad” sets charges that foreshadow later activity.
- Varryn Antillus — head of Capital Enterprises, which serves as The Collective’s spycraft and financial prowess — watches with amusement as Marick follows through on displaying an open challenge against The Collective.
- Antillus orders an attack of some kind to commence.
- Reiko Minikara is a Liberation Front Partisian that gets chosen to be a Zealot pilot.
- Reiko uses his rage and determination to crash his Quadrajet spacetug into the Inquisitorius Listener ship.
- The suicide bomber detonations react with the volatile canisters planted earlier by the Aleena task force. Foreshadowing, yo.
- Varryn is smugly pleased with the results. So much for the Voice’s claims of a stronger Inquisitorius...
- To be continued.
Voice Sponsored [INQ] Fiction Competitions
To go along with the release of this chapter, and in an effort to start hosting more sponsored fiction prompts, I’ve created two fiction competitions for members across the DB to participate in. As an added incentive, all qualifying entries will be eligible for Bonus Clusters of Ice, as outlined in the Cluster of Ice article.
These competitions will run for two weeks, and should get you all warmed up for the upcoming RoS!
If you have any questions on the fiction update or competition details, let me know. Thank you again for your patience as we endeavor to push out updates on a more regular schedule.

I wanted to introduce myself, and tell you a little about both myself in real life and as Tahiri.
I was born and raised in Northwest Montana, and now live in Southern Washington. I was homeschooled and have now recently graduated from my home towns college (this past December) with an Associate's of Arts Degree in General studies. I also have a degree in Dragonology (yes I love Dragons THAT much). Things I love are, of course, Star Wars, Star Trek (yes don’t be so shocked that I am both a Treky and Wars nerd, deal with it), Any sort of Sci Fi action series, and also any sort of Dragon/fantasy series. I also love both Marvel and DC comics, music is kind of a bit all over the place from Country to some Metal, Gaelic to Pop Rock. My pastimes are making jewelry (of which I am self taught and have done it since I was 12. I also took several jewelry classes in college), writing fiction and working on my novels, gaming, rifle and pistol shooting (I was in 4-H Shooting Sports, now I volunteer as a coach for the pistol team), playing pool and bowling.
Now Tahiri Drakon Night-Thorn Di Morte Tarentae
yes I know, super long name is not your normal sort of Sith. She is what I like to call a happy, friendly Sith, who would rather make friends than enemies (although she does have quite a few enemies, but that is a discussion for another time), but she still has a darker side that you really wouldn’t want to piss off. She is very loyal to her clan, friends within the clan, former Tarenti, friends outside the clan, and her family back on Shili. Any one of her friends can trust that she will always be there for them, as well as willing to do almost anything to help them out. Tahiri is honorable, a warrior, a hunter, and a leader. She loves animals and actually has a pet/companion Akul named Solan don’t get between her and him or else you will regret it. She also loves her swords and knives, reading/studying, hunting, crafting, and just hanging out or drinking and playing Pazaak with her friends. If you wish to know even more about Tahiri, click the link to go to her wiki.
