Welcome to Week Two of the 2018 Pro Bowl!
Week One wraps up at midnight GMT, so we have a little bit of overlap, but Week Two is underway!
A bit of clarification going into Week Two, there are ELEVEN events carrying us forward. Please note for the Lucioball event that if you submit the same screenshot for the Fist August event, that I WILL see it. Don’t be ridiculous and silly. Also, because many of you do not have access to Lucioball due to not owning the game, I am also running a staple Cluster Race for Week 2.
For PvP Gaming, your matches MUST be against someone from another team. Again, I will be keeping an eye on that.
Flash Game 1 is a quick score what you can as fast as possible type game!
Flash Game 2 is have the lowest score possible (must be golf?).
Infinites allows you to explore your creativity in changing any one single event in DB history OR from the last four SW films released!
Hunt the Tally is exactly what it sounds like, but I’m gonna make you find three of them!
Jigsaw because what would an event be like without a jigsaw puzzle?
Lucioball is just trying to accumulate the most stats you can in a single game! Either Regular or Copa are acceptable.
The Word Search is exactly what it sounds like. Taldryan related!
PvP Gaming must be against people from another team!
Poetry is such a great way to express yourself!
You all know how a Cluster Race works!
Design the Graphics for my new Vineyard!
If you have any questions. Slide into my DMs or shoot me an e-mail!
May the Force be with you,
I have the honor to be your obedient servant,

Greetings everyone and welcome to the first week of Pro Bowl III - An event of Clans Plagueis, Scholae Palatinae, and Taldryan. As noted in the below news post, the teams have been drafted, and the event stands ready to begin. This event will have three weeks of competitions, each hosted by a representative of the three participating clans. You all lucked out in having what is clearly the best come first ;). This is being posted on my behalf as not being in a position makes it a bit difficult to put up news posts.
- Week 1 features ten competitions for your enjoyment. This events will run from the 6th through to the 13th, at which point the wonderful week 2 events will start up, run by the amazing Alaris of Taldryan. I have a brief breakdown of the ten week 1 events below for ease of access.
- Week 1 Fiction is a 500 word minimum fiction, and hopefully a prompt you all will find very fun.
- Week 1 Gaming is a cluster race, with CFs counting for two CEs.
- Week 1 Graphics is a special Pro Bowl themed poster creation event.
- Week 1 Word Search is a timed event, please make sure to be aware of that before subscribing.
- Week 1 Flash Game 1 is a high score race, but also timed for the event of a tie in points.
- Week 1 Flash Game 2 is also a high score race, timed for the event of a tie in points.
- Week 1 Jigsaw is probably the most evil of my run events, timed, and make sure to follow the rules to include pieces in your screen shot so you are not disqualified as was an issue in the prologue event.
- Week 1 Lyrics in place of a more normal poetry event, I am opening this up to be musical lyrics instead. Please dont actually write music to accompany your lyrics, brownie points won’t help you place higher ;).
- Week 1 Hunt the Imperial is a timed clue based event to correctly identify a member of CSP.
- Week 1 Comic is a very humor focused event, comic form can be created as you wish, just make sure it follows the prompt.
I hope you all enjoy this opening salvo of events of what I hope is a most incredible Pro Bowl.
At 3:00 PM EDT Captains from each Pro Bowl team made their selections and we now have our official teams for Pro Bowl III: An Event of Clans Plagueis, Scholae Palatinae, and Taldryan. You will find all competition information at that link. Each...

Hello gamers, it is time for my second report! Make sure you read over everything, for there is a lot of important news that have been released. I’ll start with briefly recapping Drac’s FIST Report. Make sure you read it as well if you missed it. Also, read over the Supplemental #20.1 Report from Drac.
The gaming portal has been updated, basically meaning now you can only earn 30 CE and 30 CF clusters per platform. I’m not going into big details for Drac has already done so in his report. This was the original intention and came into effect at the beginning of the month. If you have any questions or notice something is missing or incorrect, please let Drac or myself know.
Heroes of the Storm 1v1 was announced as a supported mode! Make sure at all times the RoC rules are followed. Look forward to seeing this being utilized! For the BGL Tournament the bot now must now be utilized.
Drac also gave an update on the BGL, it has been officially decided that the top winner of each platform will receive a specialized title and trophy in honor of Frosty. The top three will receive crescents as usual.
Since there’s a great interest in Fortnite, it is now being tested and reviewed for support. Fortnite: Battle Royale is free to play! Also it has cross platform support! Make sure you check out the Test Competition and please leave a comment with your feedback. It is available on PS4, Xbox. PC and Mobile.
Then finally Destiny 1 has taken a fall since Destiny 2 has came out. Being there has nearly been any activity reported it was on the chopping block for a couple weeks. Being its “dead in the dirt” it will no longer be a supported mode within the club. Sad, we know but it happens and new things come out. The gaming world is always changing. Don’t be discouraged we still have Destiny 2 supported!
Wiki and Battlefront II Updates
The staff has been at work to update the Pendant of Blood and Supported Games wiki. They now have example screenshots for each platform. For if you ever wonder what is the proper screenshot to submit. Please refer to this first, any further questions feel free to reach out to a staff member.
After review Battlefront II requirements for clusters has been changed. Before it was you must get one kill for clusters. It has now been revised to you must register at least one kill or score to qualify for clusters.

Good afternoon fellow DJB members and onlookers from around the internet. After taking some time reviewing applications I have confidently chosen James Malum as the first staff member for the Social Media Tribune. A combination of his knowledge in assisting larger Social Media platforms in the past as well as his relatively new experience to the club will help tremendously in giving a fresh look into ways to reach those fellow Star Wars fans around the globe.
Also, look out for some updates to competitions coming from my office very soon as we began to revamp how we do things for the better!
Thanks again to all who applied!
Until next time folks,

Hello Taldryan, another month has come to an end and with it a lot of preparation for the next chapter of the Caelus Chronicles. As of now we are half way through our attempt to gain as much control over the system as possible. Anyways lets jump right into the report giving you a major update on the various things that are going on in the DB right now that are related to Taldryan.
- First off let's dive into the official canon fiction that details Mav's ascension to Grandmaster, written by our truliest Deputy Grandmaster Vyr. If you haven't, you should definetly take a look at it here: The Collective - Prologue
Further there have been quite a few Reports from other members of the Dark Council so let's give those a look too:
- From the Office of the Combat Master: Combat Master #16 and Combat Master #17
- From the Office of the Herald: Herald Report #2
- From the Shadow Academy: Headmaster Report #0.5
- From the Office of the Voice: Voice Report #15
- From the Office of the Master at Arms: Master at Arms report #10
- From the Office of the Fist: Fist Report #19 and P:Fist Report #1
- And last but not least the Tribunes also released reports of their own: Wiki Tribune Report #2 and Social Media Tribune Report #2
Our first joined event with Clan Scholae Palatinae has come to an end earlier this month with two members from Taldryan placing within the Top 3. You can find a newspost regarding the Results here: CSP+TAL - A Collective Danger (Results)
There also another SRI Project that is just upon getting closed today and by then we will have to eagerly wait for the results for Week 4 and the Multi-Objective Prompt fiction events to see where the story of Ektrosis goes.
There have also been a couple reports from Justinios and Quejo which you can find here:
The two Taldryan leaders entered the atmosphere of Chyron, seeking to inspect the part of the city the Clan has been given control off along a group of technicians. While their shuttle sped through the sky, the Taldrya’s couldn’t eschew to look at the pile of smoke rising from a different part of the citymoon.
“Isn’t that smoke coming from the capitol?” the younger of them asked the pilot."
A short look from the pilot onto his controls and the following statement confirmed the augmented senses of the two Force-users.
Looking at each other the two Taldrya had a bad feeling coming from their stomachs.
“Pilot, change course to the capitol, we need to know what happened, our district can wait.” The Consul ordered."
A few minutes later the shuttle touched down on the capitol’s courtyard.
The place was roamed with speeders from the local authorities as well as rescuers. Picking the nearest trooper, the Consul asked, pushing the hesitant trooper to answer him through the force: “What happened?”
“There has been an attack on the capitol last night and the Governor has been killed during the attack.”
“What? Lord Astor is dead?”
“Yes, Lord Drayen and Lady Ceyra are within the building.” The trooper said turning his head around. “Oh wait, there they are coming.”
Looking at the same direction as the trooper, the Tadrya saw them, Drayen and Ceyra along a group of medics shoving a hovergurney in front of them, though upon seeing the Taldrya, Drayen parted from his crying sister to talk to a nearby trooper.
Rushing past the trooper, Halcyon and Rian closed in to the group.
“Our sincerest condolences Lady Ceyra.” Rian said bowing slightly. “The moment we came aware of the situation we came here, is there anything we can be of help for you, just ask for it.”
“Thank you Colonel Aslar.” Ceyra replied using Rian’s military rank while wiping the tears from her eyes. “My father always talked the best from you. He said without you and your fleet there wouldn’t be any justice in the system anymore.”
Rian nodded, while Halcyon showed more interest at the corpse of Astor Ky’Lian covered by a white blanket.
“Rian, can you take a look at this?” the elder Taldrya said.
Turning from Ceyra to the corpse, Rian immediately saw what the Proconsul referred to and his mind immediately darkened.

Chapter IV: BROKEN CHAINS
- Caelus Chronicles Chapter4 - Broken Chains: Vishes final Gift (Multi-Objective Prompt Co-Op Fiction)
Following the clues from Caelus Chronicles Chapter4 - Broken Chains: Hidden in the Clouds and Caelus Chronicles Chapter4 - Broken Chains: A hidden Message you have uncovered the supposed whereabouts of the person(s) behind the attack on the capitol of the Caelus-system on Chyron. Upon arriving at the uncovered position you (and your team) find no difficulties blending in with the gathering crowd looking for their leader but instead it seems the meeting is led by a person well known to you vaguely remember to be a member of the Caelus-Security Special Forces Division. Now it is up to you to deal with the culprits of the attack in a way you deem appropriate.
Members of the SRI Intelligence Division monitoring the general activity within the Caelus System have located an increased amount of traffic near the planet Perune. However a probe droid that has been sent to the hub of the activity has been destroyed and all the SRI was able to save from its data is a descrambled image.
During their initial investigations revolving around the attack on the capitol, members of the SRI Intelligence Division have found a coded communique sent over a local dataframe some time during the attack. With their numbers still low, the Deputy Director of the SRI requested you to help de-cipher the message as it may contain critical informations on the persons behind the attack or at best their current whereabouts.
Caelus Chronicles: A new Home (Bonus Chapter)
As you have seen in the fiction update, our efforts to help the government of the Caelus System haven't gone unnoticed and for our continued help, we have been rewarded with the control of a small portion of Chyron. In return, this means we will now have to fill this place with life. For this reason there will be some bonus events that too will allow you to come up with places that will be made canon for the Caelus System (only Top 3 placements) as well as an increased amount of Influence Points to further strengthen our presence in the eyes of the locals. So stay tuned on further updates for this.
Over the last couple weeks you guys have really rocked activities and for this several big shouts will go out to:
Last but not least a big Tal weclome goes out to Starm for joining the Clan, welcome Starm, great to have you around.

Champions Tournament Details
(Note: You will have to select “Current Standings” from the bottom tab)
You’ve heard me talk about special Champions Tournament Awards before and I have more details on them now. We’re still working out specific details, but I CAN tell you that the Winner of each Champions Tournament will receive a Dossier Accessory AND a Title. In order to qualify for the Champions Tournament you must participate in one of the Three Qualifying Rounds and accumulate CT Points. “MORE than just a Diamond Crescent you say? A chance to show off your gaming superiority you say?” Yes, I do!
Something I’ve been wanting to do for some time is develop a DB Specific Twitch Account. In the future, some select matches and Round/Champions Finals will be streamed live (with consent from participants). It’s also my intention to start delivering these updates LIVE from Twitch (which, I will of course, save and post on the News Page for those who are not there to see it live). I will be using that time to answer any questions that you may have about the Brotherhood Gaming League or indeed Gaming in the Brotherhood at all.
I have the honour to be your obedient servant,

The Dark Ascent, Arx
3 months after the battle of Nancora; 4 months before present day
Grand Master Pravus stared through his table-mounted holo-screen at the mass of people — bureaucrats, nobles, merchants and dignitaries of allied interest groups that served the Dark Brotherhood — gathered in the main reception hall of the Dark Ascent. Weapons traffickers, crime bosses, wealthy and influential politicians, all reveling in their perceived self-importance as they received summons from the Grand Master himself. Pravus felt his gut churn with contempt at the sight of them. They smelled profit in a war not their own, and they skittered about, like a swarm of insects greedy for nourishment. They were, at best, a necessary evil, otherwise he would not have had them in his bastion.
The simple reality was that the Brotherhood needed credits to finance their war against the Collective, a war that started at the worst of times. These...people were the unfortunate outcome. The emerging war was giving them legs to stand on while the promise of wealth and power afforded them a boldness they would otherwise fear to express in the Grand Master’s presence. Pravus held them all in silent contempt before finally withdrawing from his table. He closed the holo-screen and stared through the viewport onto the city below, ignoring its brilliance against a darkening sky.
A doorbell chimed at the far end of the office, sliding aside as the tall visage of his Deputy, Telaris, walked in. He was dressed in Inquisitorius robes and ceremonial armor, specifically tailored for the occasion. There was no expectation in his eyes. Telaris knew why he had been summoned.
"You have been patient. Did you think it would come so soon?" Pravus asked, not so much as glancing towards the Deputy Grand Master.
Telaris' expression remained steadfast. He did not have to answer, since he knew that the Grand Master wasn't expecting one. "What of you?" the Deputy inquired.
"There is...more that I seek. These strings no longer play to my liking. I'm merely—" Pravus paused and stared at something only he could see, always looking ever further, trying to shape the course of things to come. "—moving on."
"It's all decided, then."
"It had been even before I called for you. Howlader has been informed," Pravus stated.
Telaris fought the urge to run a hand through his brown hair, his eyes scanning the Grand Master. Silence hung between the two men, but there was almost a perceptible shift as well. As if the scales of power no longer skewed entirely in only one's favor.
Pravus rose to his full height as air rushed into his flared nostrils. The sound was sudden, but somehow added to the tension instead of breaking it. "I wonder if you regret such a transition," he pondered alloud. "It is the way of the Sith to take it, is it not?"
Another question that bore no fruit.
Whatever Telaris' thoughts were, he kept them tightly controlled. Nor was he obligated to do anything beyond that. That time was over, and the pieces were moving once more upon the board. Only now, it would be his will that they followed.
Written by: DGM Morgan Sorenn
- A gathering of bureaucrats, nobles, merchants, and dignitaries is being hosted at the Dark Ascent on Arx.
- In private, Grand Master Pravus reveals that he is stepping away from the throne.
- Deputy Grand Master Telaris is told that his time has come. Long may he reign.
- Back at the gathering, the various leadership representatives of the Clans are present: with the exception of Odan Urr.
- Telaris appears where Pravus should be, shocking many of the gathered to different degrees. They can’t believe it’s not butter, clearly.
- Telaris is the new Grand Master, and he says that in order to reforge the Brotherhood in the face of the threat that is the Collective, the Brotherhood needs to be unified.
- Telaris states that the Council will continue to bolster and support the Clans territories.
- Jac Cotelin has been replaced as Justicar by Dacien Victae diPlagia.
- Selika Roh has become the new Herald.
- Morgan Sorenn has become the new Deputy Grand Master.
- Later: It is revealed that a Collective spy was able to record the exchange and share it with the Collective leadership.
- Ghafa and Daggo argue over their mixed success and failures against the Brotherhood so far.
- Rath quiets them, and admits to not predicting that Pravus would just walk away from everything.
- Rath resolves that this will not stop him from achieving his goals. The Collective will not stop until the Brotherhood is eradicated from the face of the Galaxy.
Thank you, everyone for your continued patience. This fiction update officially kicks off our next story arc: The Collective. We went with this name to establish that The Collective are not a one-and-done adversary. They are a continual rival that challenges the existence of the Brotherhood. While this first Prologue doesn’t answer all of the questions you probably have, it serves as a strong base for handling some of the out-of-characters changes in the club from an in-character perspective. Namely, the transition from Pravus to Telaris as Grand Master.
For those that might be unsure or skeptic: as with any update we’ve published in the past two years, all fictions are run by the Consuls and other respective members that have their character featured. We trust the Consul’s to know their members, so please remember that we do not do anything, or use any character, without consent. We will continue to work with the Consuls to ensure parity and fairness, but ultimately the macro (main) storyline for the Brotherhood will remain firmly in the direction set by the Grand Master’s wishes. Updates will most likely come from either Vyr or myself, depending on our schedules.
The next chapter in this arc will bring us more in line with the future of the Brotherhood’s main storyline. This will help ramp up towards future events and continue to answer the question of how the Brotherhood operates as an organization in not just the face of an enemy as resourceful as The Collective, but with the lingering distrust and contempt the Clans have with each other.
Let us know what you think of the update in the comments. Do you think Grand Master Telaris has his work cut out for him? Will The Collective be the only threat to the Brotherhood? Stay tuned for more to come.
