[COU] High Councillor Report #14: A Trip Down Memory Lane


[COU] High Councillor Report #14: A Trip Down Memory Lane



Another year is almost gone. Just yesterday it felt like fall and now look where we are. This time of year always gives me the urge to look at what we’ve accomplished so far this year so I’ve decided to share some of my thoughts for you all and celebrate some of our year’s highlights. I also have some exciting plans for early next year but for now I’ll keep it at that. The holidays are coming after all. :)

In addition to the above, I have a PCON corner with some very important new fiction guides, new Scimitar of Hoth results, Antilles Classic Round 1 results, fun new competitions for you all, and of course all the usual stuff I cover like promotions and spotlights. So let’s dive right in. Roll the cameras.



Odan-Urr’s Adventures in 2020

Back on February 12, 2017, I joined a wonderful family called Odan-Urr. Since then I have cherished every moment with it and made a lot of wonderful friends. We’ve had our good and bad times but we always pull through no matter what and more importantly had a lot of fun doing it together. In particular, this year has been especially tough with COVID-19. This is where the DB comes in, providing us happy moments we can carry with us despite what is going on in the real world.

Sometimes it's easy to forget those special moments together as time passes us by so I’d like to remind everyone some highlights, both in terms of story and the day to day interactions. I wish I had a cinematic I could show you but a report section will have to do. I’ll include as much as I can for now, but a reminder to all to check your emails and fill out the COU 2020 Highlights. I want to make a COU christmas card and put all the good feels in it. Roll the memories!

COU’s 2020 Story (listed in rough chronological order)

Seven Pillars Episode I: Velastari

Seven Pillars started off our year with a bang, featuring a new storyline for the Clan that focused on the mysteries of the galaxy, forgotten wisdom, and for those who sought it the secrets of the temples or the Force. This led Odan-Urr to explore the Velastari temple, where we found a map called the Cave of Light. It put us on a path of discovery and gave us other temples waiting to be explored, survived, and their secrets uncovered. Indiana Jones here we come!

Treasure Hunt for the Light of the Ki’asma

Tython squadron went on a journey for the legendary warship shown in the Cave of Light, using a special map of the Kiast system. Thing is the Sea Raven Raiders were also looking for it. It brought them to Kaerls, where a Tython explored a valley in the dark that led to a winding labyrinth whose prize was a bright blue crystal. Trust in each other helped them find their way to the prize, but Sea Raven was already there to take it from them. Tython managed to pass their first trial (Trial of Faith), but there is still more to come to prove themselves worthy of the ship.

Here is an amazing art by Agate Gua’lara on the Light of Ki’asma, the legendary warship, which has yet to be found!

Peacekeeper Mission #1: Kidnapped!

In parallel to our investigative adventures, we started offering our services to those who could not protect themselves. Taking on the mantle as the guardians of peace and justice, this mission was our first. We travelled to Felucia to save some of our own fellow citizens, the Quorahi, from a life of slavery at the hand of the Zygerrians. We managed to get them in time, using a combination of force, guile, and borrowing other people’s credits. In the process we also saved those who we did not initially expect to find, people from a variety of other worlds across the galaxy. That day we not only saved a village but let others know that help would come to those that asked for it.

Here is some amazing art by Agate Gua’lara depicting the moment of salvation.

Peacekeeper Mission #2: Toxic!

Sometime after our adventures so far, our intelligence was given a call for help on dealing with the sordid operations on Dorumaa, where a deadly new drug called ‘Serenity’ was being manufactured to spread across the galaxy. It was more addictive than a death stick and just as deadly. We disabled their deep sea facility and put it out of business, encountered exotic wildlife (Firaxan sharks with lasers on their heads, Nus whales, Leviathans, etc…), borrowed some money from rich warlords to fund an anti-drug campaign. Afterwards we all got a wonderful free vacation at Dorumaa resorts, made enemies of the Perlemian Cartel (who are already trying to find us), and helped some of Nar Shadaa’s slums clean up afterwards via clean up and doctoring. Someone on Coruscant who helps these people is already digging deeper into who their new benefactor might be as well. Odan-Urr is keeping a profile for now. Can’t have the bad guys finding our bat cave.

Great Jedi War (GJW)

Some time after we returned from Dorumaa, we went to the system Arx to save innocents who were caught in the crossfires between Sith and a bunch of fanatics, who were bent on wiping out all Force Users and anyone who disagreed with them doing it. We evacuated many people to safety and even “borrowed” some things the Sith really shouldn’t have had. We even got awarded a Battle Meditation Chamber as an award for our service. Unfortunately, many people died in the fighting but we helped as many people as we could. We don’t know if the Sith learned their lesson but we helped clean up their mess and then went back home. Even better, we worked together as a team and did some amazing stuff.

Here is a lovely story crawl made by our very own Vyr!

Seven Pillars Episode II: Jedha

After the GJW, we refocused on adventures to uncover the mysteries that the Cave of Light, a mysterious room found in Episode I, revealed to us. This led Odan-Urr to Jedha, the ancient homeworld of the Disciples of the Whills that was recently nearly destroyed by the villainous Empire, in search of ancient relics and long-forgotten information. We were specifically looking for the ‘Cradle of the Wanderer’, which was guarded by a large statue. We found a number of carvings and scriptures in the language of the High Sith, Zeffo, and a language used in the Rammahgon (sacred Jedi text). We managed to get what we could off the planet and promised to return for the rest still buried inside Jedha.

Here is where all the stuff was buried underneath. Impressive rock statue isn’t it?

Vatali Unsettled

Sunrider became aware of a building movement over the last year to overthrow the ruler of our home system, using our fellow citizens’ desires for independence in their own selfish bid for power. Leading this bid for power rang a promise of a “free people.” The once warring tribes of the Quorahi united under a single banner, formed a centralized government around mutual prosperity and finally worked together as one. All the while, they were being manipulated into an open war with the Vatali nobles. This culminated with the new Quorahi Nation attacking both the Vatali and Odan-Urr at Voraskel Palace. In the end, Sunrider helped take down the corrupt leader and restore balance to Kiast. The tribes of the Quorahi Nation were allowed to maintain their alliance and the Vatali would once again begin to rebuild. Sunrider helped Kiast finally find peace.

A Decade in the Light: Ten Years of Odan-Urr

This last November marked our 10th year in existence as a Clan, the Dark Brotherhood’s first unit dedicated to the light side. To celebrate we threw a big party and hung out together. It’s not every day you turn 10 now is it? I don’t have any highlights for you yet since we just finished it a few days ago so look forward to that in its own dedicated post by the hosts of the event. That said, we had a lot of fun hanging out together and I just wanted to say thank you for your time in the Clan. 10 years means a lot.

Treasure Hunt for the Light of the Ki’asma Part 2: Hoist The Colours!

After the nearly disastrous affair on Kaerls to pass the first trial to acquire the legendary warship, our intrepid team have gathered together once more but for a different mission. Instead of starting the next trial, they are going on a mission to take out their main competitor, the Sea Raven Raiders. This just started not too long ago so stay tuned for more!

Here is some amazing art by Agate Gua’lara depicting those new colors.

COU’s Day to Day Stories and Shenanigans

I, Youngling

Several Odanites made a bunch of youngling characters and wrote them going on a mission together to save a lonely gizka they dubbed ‘Frank’. At least one person wanted to eat it but Ralph had some champions on his side. The kids bonded together and even some adults helped along the way with a knowing wink. It never resolved but there were a few gems in there.

  • When rescuing a gizka on the run, be armed to the teeth. Lightsabers, blasters, flare guns, slingshots, net guns, and of course a large ornate dagger.
  • Being quiet is not a skill easily acquired by younglings, which leaves Jedi Masters who raid kitchens in secret to wonder what the youth are taught these days…
  • When stowing away on transports, don’t hold on the outside when it takes off.
  • Not all trees are actually trees. Uh-oh.

Remember that one time in _____

  • The Old Republic when some of us waited an hour for our teammate in the freezing tundra of Hoth just because they had to go back to buy a new pair of pants and couldn’t decide on what they wanted? Gotta look good for the Tauntauns I guess.
  • roleplay when we were stuck in a prison without any of our gear, so instead of using the Force we tossed one of our own at a metal grate in the cage’s ceiling to let us out? Yeah we could have just flicked our fingers and got out. Poor Odanite got a mild concussion afterwards.
  • roleplay when our enemies learned a valuable lesson about disturbing tea time in the middle of a dogfight? The tea was unscathed. Don’t worry.
  • roleplay when we played hide and seek in a busy city with a rogue Jedi who could vanish at will and instead we fought among ourselves so much that handcuffs were used, people got hurt, and eventually the man found us so we would cut it out? Wasn’t a proud moment but we bonded.
  • roleplay where we learned that many of our characters lacked practical skills and thus were almost eaten on an exploding ship? Prison shivs are not as good as lightsabers and we took entirely too long to acquire them.
  • roleplay where we danced for a Hutt and then said ‘frack this’ and engaged in aggressive negotiations? Also, tatooine sand is wonderful to dump on your friends when they least suspect it. Gets everywhere.
  • roleplay where we checked out a Sith tomb and then almost died because someone wanted to chase their damn hat? Yeah, we barely got out alive and someone acquired a zombie loth-cat who likes to piss on Jedi robes. Also, I hear there is a hunting party still for the gundark and the old saber they found.
  • Movie Night where we learned so much about the Star Wars special? 5/5 stars.
  • Among Us, where everyone was scared to go closer than six feet from each other because all trust was broken and you don’t know who the imposter is? Fun times XD

The Little Things

I asked you all to share some things you fondly remember in 2020 a few days ago and have already collected a few responses. Even better, they said I could share them. I expect to receive more over the coming days but here are a few things I’ve gotten so far. :)

  • “I came back to the DJB after several years of being away. The 2020 isolation had messed me up really bad given my own personal situation, the lockdown was extremely hard. I needed a change, new character, new clan, and I got all that and more.”
  • “My favorite memory is when my master chose me as his apprentice. It was for entering a new life, which was mysterious and unknown to me, but at the same time I began to feel the strength of the team. This team of amazing people who are now my family. Thank you all for that!!!”
  • “Getting admitted as a potential master into the master/student program.”
  • “I can't necessarily say much, as I only just joined recently, actually I found it through a facebook post, but I'm rather glad I did, all of you seem to be a group of very dedicated Star Wars fans.”
  • “All the wonderful roleplaying sessions we've had! It's been wonderful to get to learn about everybody's characters through first hand interaction.”

COU Christmas Card

As stated above, I’d like to put together a COU Christmas Card, that has lots of good feels and some pretty art. Or even a group stick figure. Depends on what time we have. The sentiment will definitely be there though. That said, I’m looking for volunteers to help make it, where it’s a good story or helping draw some art. Something that you want to remember that gives you good vibes. Group hug everyone. :)

If you are interested in helping or contributing something, please let me know and fill out the COU 2020 highlights form sent to your emails.

I Thought This Was Speed Dating


What is this? I thought I’d be mingling?! Alas, I have tricked you. This is a trivia jam, where you’ll expand your minds together and have a lot of fun. There will be in-game commentary, a plethora of general star wars trivia, some special star wars trivia, some non star wars trivia, who knows what else. But it will be fun. It will take place every Sunday, one for DB-wide and the other specially for the House. Here are some handy links for you to check it out.

[DB] I Thought This Was Speed Dating

House Edition: I Thought This Was Speed Dating

What will you get if you play? Hanging out with friends, plenty of smack talk all around, and Legions of Scholars as a start. What you do with them is up to you. If you just want to chill while playing trivia, participation credit is also pretty easy to get. Just show up and guess at one of the questions I pose. Guesses are not only welcome but encouraged. So put on your thinking caps, fire up your browser, and get ready for some light-hearted fun banter. Odan-Urr invites you to trivia time!


2020 Scimitar of Lord Hoth results


It’s my pleasure to announce another winner for the Scimitar of Lord Hoth. For those new to this, we tally up all your activity and whoever gets the most gets that above fancy sword. Each month’s tallies are counted for an overall winner at the end of the year. So without further ado let’s get to the November results!


Everyone join me in congratulating our November winner, Alethia Archenksova, as well as our runner-ups who placed in the competition! This month was quite the turnout and it toppled our reigning champions’ streak! We even had our very first placement tie.


Moreover we had 29 participants and some strong competition! Well done, my friends! To those who placed in the top 3, very well done. I was particularly happy to see some new faces join the group. That’s why this competition is great. People doing things together. <3

Antilles Classic Round 2 Results + a bonus!

Our big DB-wide Squadrons event, fashioned after the famous Boonta Eves of the Star Wars universe, is still going on. There are three rounds in total, each one anointing an ace. In addition, there is an overall ace for the event as well. Each round is judged on three main components, which are Dog Fights, Fleet Battles, and Fleet AI Battles. That said, we have Round 2 Results. Everyone join me in congratulating our Round 2 Ace, Malfrost Xeon!!!


This was another exciting round. Malfrost toppled our Round 1 Ace and there were some new faces in the top 3! This doesn’t tell the whole story though so I’ve broken things down for you all even more. It’s my hope that with these detailed results you can all get an idea of what you have to shoot for to beat the current champ.


In addition, I’ve given you all another treat. I present to you the overall points as they stand thus far! More dakka for plotting out the last round’s strategy. :)


I hope this helps you all with your third round. Thank you very much for participating in the second round. It was awesome to see all the pew pews. Here is to hoping for some more in Round 3. Good luck everyone!!


Group Opportunities (Has Movie Nights && Trivia now too!)

Every Saturday and Sunday we plan group events and try to get as many people as possible to do things together. This club is all about making friends and hanging out with them. What better way than on the weekend when everyone is free? We usually do gaming get togethers and roleplays and we just added trivia! There are other events we run from time to time like Among Us, Movie Nights, or Cards Against Humanity. I highly suggest you attend the events, which are posted each Friday.

If you have a particular activity in mind you’d like to do, just let us know and we’ll try to plan it. And of course, if you’d like to help the clan out we are always looking for more event hosters!

Training Roleplay

Our lovely RM has started a wonderful group roleplay on discourse for everyone to help everyone get to know each other. A bit slower paced than our Discord RP sessions, you will be able to sit down and take your time with your posts and creative writing. Come join us!

Tabletop-style Roleplays [ACTIVE]

The idea of integrating our character sheets with roleplay has always been something we’ve wanted to do. I am pleased to announce that Tassk Adroc has taken charge on this project and is looking for volunteers to help craft the final project. If you want to help and care about making those +1 survival skills finally matter, or even a good tabletop-style story, please reach out to Tassk.

  • Refine Ideas for Initial Version of the system
  • Test it out in a community event

Future Leaders of Odan-Urr [ACTIVE]

Many years ago, I joined Odan-Urr and fell in love with it. Fictionally, I stepped out of the darkness and into a much brighter world full of heroes of all walks of life. I saw light-side characters unabashed to be who they wanted to be. I saw characters putting up the good fight for what they believed in, unafraid to stand up for what was good. Since then I’ve worked tirelessly to give back. I want to make the light of Odan-Urr shine as bright as the sun. I want to make sure that Odan-Urr gets stronger and even better than we are today. If you care a lot about Odan-Urr and want to help build its bright future, I am offering you the opportunity to learn more about what it means to be a clan leader. ^^

  • Tell me if you want to be a clan leader one day or once more!

POC: Aura Ta’var

Fleet Restructuring

Every so often we have to look at our possessions and rework them to fit our current needs. Over the past month, we’ve been talking over different ideas for both our Clan and House fleets. If you have any input, message me and I’ll put them on the list. We are close to christening the new ships and we’ll be unveiling them soon. Be on the lookout for updates though, as we’ll need to name them all!

POC: Revak Kur

That’s all the projects for now. This list will change over time so if you want to get in on some project work just let one of your leaders know. My door is always open. We don’t have all the good ideas and you get cool shinies/promotions for helping out the clan!



Len Asks: “what is 2 + 2 for larger values of 2?”

Revak: “5 but depends how you round it.”

Aura: Mmm, yes. Math questions.

Raziel Asks: “What should I cook for a first date?”

Revak: “Date Energy Balls!”

Aura: Bantha Rump Stew. Here is a video to help you make it.

Zappius Asks: “Just because I'm curious and haven't been in the Brotherhood as long as others, what's COU's view on the other clan's of the Brotherhood?”

Aura: For the unit as a whole, it depends on their actions ultimately. For simplicity’s sake, Odan-Urr values protecting others, gaining knowledge, and those sorts of things. If a Clan is diametrically opposite to that, then Odan-Urr is going to have problems with it. If a Clan sorta does a bit of both, then it would probably depend on who Odan-Urr gets the pleasure of working with and which sub-element of the Clan they belong to. Of course, Odan-Urr has a variety of characters underneath that simplistic answer but you’d have to ask their owners.


This was a pretty packed report but I hope that you get a chance to read it all. It has plenty of great memories from 2020 and lots of fun stuff for December. As the year is almost closing out, I wanted to thank you all for the time you gave Odan-Urr this year. It was amazing and made this horrible year much happier. Holidays are coming up so remember to spend time with family in the safest ways possible. On behalf of the Odan-Urr family, have a great December. <3
