Devil's Shroud Report #2: No Soup for You!

Devil's Shroud Report #2: No Soup for You!


Hello all, and welcome to the second February report (even though the first report was technically on the last day of January). On the whole, the DJB has been somewhat quiet, with your standard fare of competitions being run while the CNS crew continues its odd assortment of banter in Telegram and e-mails both. The biggest news this month came from Grand Master Pravus, with the complete story of behind and leading into the purge of the Jedi and Undesirables.

It was also sent down the pipe for the Battle Teams to have a fictional “direction,” as it were: a specific mission or purpose to our group. After some deliberation with the folks on Telegram, we have decided to adopt the following (subject to change as necessary):

In theory, Battle Team Devil's Shroud is the brains of House Shar Dakhan: a machine honed and built to gather intelligence for its many aspirations and projects. In reality, it is about as "elite" as a group of drunken Hutts, made up of the oddest assortment of persons that Naga Sadow has to offer. The motley crew is made up of people from all corners of the spectrum – from mercenaries, to interrogation-savvy Jedi, to dark and brooding Sith – each with their own motivations and loyalties. It is not as a team that they are exceptional, but rather in their individuality, able to complete the various tasks set before them using their unique skills and backgrounds to effect a successful mission. Not everyone can stand out amongst the Shroud, only the best of us… the Devil inside.


On the Homefront

  • The new Quaestor of House Shar Dakhan has put out his first report in the position; probably a thing that you should read. Anzati like to suck the brains of folks that don’t read their reports, or so I’m told.
  • For those of you that like to keep track of the other House in CNS, Sang put up a lovely report for Marka Ragnos, in which we celebrate his one year anniversary with Naga Sadow. Woo! Go Sang! I will also be stealing… I mean, learning aspects of his reporting style. Yes. Learning...
  • As expected, Knight Mactire Chemel took over the role of Battle Team Leader for Sapphire Squadron, and has already put out his report of things about stuff. I know they’re not quite Devil’s Shroud, but go give ‘em a look and give support to our brothers and sisters.
  • The position of Proconsul - that is, second in command of the Clan - is open, with Cethgus’ appointment as the new FIST (not “of the North Star,” sadly). If you’re interested, go read the application stuff here.
  • Our loveable, pettable, and otherwise lovely Rollmaster put up a thing about people doing other things. For those of you in the Journeyman 3 (JM3) rank and below, this stuff is for you, so go check it out.

DJB Newsy Things

  • The Tribune, Selika Roh di Somethingorother, has put out a very important update to the Wiki, which encompasses the new storyline changes for the DJB on the whole. If you’re into the fictional side of things, this is for you.
  • The Headmaster had some updates for the Shadow Academy in his report, where he mentions our very own Quo-Wing-Tzun. Woo!
  • Remember how I said Ceth became the new FIST? Well he did. And he made a report already, because he’s boss like that. Go read the thing of your fellow former-but-still-a-Sadowan and show your support.
  • Our very own Atra Ventus, working for the Voice, has put out some fun information for those of you with lack-of-species woes. You can now be Sullustan or Pau’an! If you’ve got a species/race idea, you can also make your own case to the Voice; just be smart about it, ‘kay?
  • LAST BUT NOT LEAST! The GM, as I said up top, has taken a shining to killing things… en masse. His report, which has many of the major changes in the DJB timeline, is a definite should-read if you’re into the fictional side of things. His much larger report goes into more definitive detail about future plans, some Posessions things, and even a Conclusion! Yes, I’m trying to be funny. Yes, I also know it isn’t working.


There is a metric crap-ton of competitions right now, some of which are coming up on their deadlines. Check your Administration section and see if you’re subscribed to any that need that quick-finish; because competition organizers like to see the subscribers actually participate. I know I would take 100% participation over having thirty subscriptions. See them all here.

There will also be a Devil’s Shroud-exclusive parent competition coming out later this week (hopefully). There’ll be fiction, gaming, and maybe even a trivia thing if I can come up with a suitable theme. Keep your eyes open; I’ll send a notification to your e-mails when she’s up and goin’.


I can only report what I see. If I missed something, give me a heads up and I will be glad to update it! All items dated by time of last BTL report. Also, I put them in alphabetical order, and made a couple special mentions therein. Huzzah!

Since joining early this month, Aul has been an impressive force as a new face. Judging by the Clusters of Fire, I think our hardcore gamers have some competition in the GMRG coming their way. I’m very happy to see this fellow join us, and hit the ground running as he has. Keep it up Aul!

Quo has been staggering my inbox lately. Since rejoining the DJB in January, he’s competed in thirty two competitions, done more than a few Shadow Academy courses (some of which go back to 2010), and has clearly done a bit of writing with all those Clusters of Ice! He has been impressing a good number of folk, and I am happy to count him among our ranks. Good job, and keep it up!
