[CSP] Consul Report July 2018


Hi all! Welcome to the Scholae Palatinae Consul Report for the month of June 2018. This has been a busy month for many of us in real life and summer is always a quiet DB time, but we have results from the latest event, words and war, as well as the new event to come to the clan, the pro bowl!

News & Announcements

Leadership Restructuring and Open Position

We've had a few changes in our leadership structure at house level over the last few weeks. Dek has resigned from the position of QUA of Imperium, with Korras / Darth Aeternus taking up the lead role, with Shadow moving over from Excidium to Imperium to serve as the Aedile. Massive congratulations to both of them on their new positions!

That leaves a gap in Excidium's Aedile spot. If you are interested, please email your applications to Alara Deathbane, Elincia Rei, Mune Cinteroph, and Raiju Kang. Deadlines for applications is August 31st. At anytime, however, we can close applications depending on those we receive should we find a acceptable candidate in a faster period of time.

Here’s what we are looking for:

  • 24 - 48 hour email responding time
  • Creative skills in assistance to developing competitions, plot storylines, fiction, and campaigns
  • Ability to use Telegram, DJB Wiki, Trello, Google Docs, and DJB Markdown (willing to train in this, but please take the courses!)
  • Ability to work with others in a timely fashion
  • A general understanding of where you want to be in the DJB in the near future

We've had a flurry of awards here recently, so I'd like to congratulate James Malum, Ulfsark, and Kadrol Hauen on their Anteian Crosses! Many thanks for all your hard work!

Fleet Restructuring

As you all know from recent reports, we've been working on a restructuring of the clan fleet, which comes from a re-imagining of what the fleet actually is: a plot device. Something to use in fictions. As such, we gave roughly 10 million to each house and 5 million to each BT in order to build their own forces to drive house / bt level fictional development, which would have come out of the credits we had earned since the new clan possessions sytem came into effect. As it became very quickly apparent that wasn't enough, I expnded this to 25 and 10 million, which put the clan at a defecit. Jorm has been instrumental in helping me cut costs.

The relevant sales / purchases have been made, after discussion with Dante, Arden, and others interested in military matters. Most notable changes is that the Venator Star Destroyer - which requires an extensive starfighter contingent to be effective in combat - has been replaced by a second Victory. Both are 75 million, but with the Victory we could cut costs on starfighters. We also found the cash to upgrade the starfighters we had left, so we now have a smaller contingent, but all are top quality. Also, Juggernauts are pretty awesome so we bought some. They're giant tanks that hold a load of troops for land attacks.

Words and War


Participation in this event was relatively low compared to previous events. Perhaps this is due to summer, or that we didn't do a great job of advertising it, or that the whole path of war vs path of subterfuge thing was only interesting in my head, but many competitions had only one or two entries. Nonetheless, thank you to Mako, Mune, Wagglehorn, Derek, Xantros, Jon, Reiden, James, Jorm and Bale for their participation.

Final scores are as follows:

1) Mako - 113

2) Wagglehorn - 28

3) Bale - 20

Congratulations to Mako, Wagglehorn and Bale for their placements!

Closing Fiction

The closing fiction for this event is a combination of numerous authors, and ended up quite lengthy, including fictions from Bale and Mako, as well as extensive writing by Raiju. We're currently still working on it, trying to make all the different elements work together as one cohensive piece, so more on that later!


Pro Bowl

The Pro Bowl has started! This is a 3 way event involving us, Taldryan and Plagueis, but rather than clan v clan v clan, teams have been drafted to be a mix of all 3 clans! CSP has never participated in an event like this before and I'm looking forward to seeing how we all do. The event will be 3 weeks long, with each week focusing on a different clan. First week is us!

Teams can be found here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/u/1/d/1zojxh4em6Yg8_X_nv2SsbDLlMuoKAO44SMs3gEDO-W0/edit#gid=0 and more information can be found at https://www.darkjedibrotherhood.com/news/djb-news-2018-pro-bowl-week-1-begins


Ask The Eli

Andrelious asks: Should we play 4-4-fwecing2 in the probowl?
Elincia: After the world cup I'm becoming a bigger fan of the 3-5-2 to be honest.

Xen asks: How do you feel knowing that the best week of the probowl is coming to an end and nothing will ever come to compare to it?
Elincia: http://www.nooooooooooooooo.com/

Shadow asks: In regards to the Pro Bowl, what pokemon would represent your team?
Elincia: Mega Rayquaza. Because we're green and ridiculously overpowered.

Xantros asks: What is your most favourite part of leading the Clan? Why?
Elincia: CSP has had quite a major influence on my life outside of the DB for a long time. Leading the clan lets me feed back by providing a positive experience for the members like the one I had when I joined.

Elincia Rei,

Consul of Scholae Palatinae

Great report as always! :D
