People, friends, brothers
The past week has been one of the most massive in our recent history. Many people come and go, but those that remain with us have always set a benchmark for excellence. There is no bigger example of this than Taldryan’s OFH, without whom the Brotherhood as it exists today would probably never have been. With pride and happiness, I would like to single out and thank no less than three of our incredible members that have risen through the ranks and have bright futures in our community.
Nero, little Nero. I kind of see you like that obnoxious little brother that mom tells you to hang out with and share stuff with glares at Yacko. But you’re one of my confidants and constant companions as we fight to make Taldryan an enjoyable experience for all those that call it home. Congratulations on becoming a Brobelisk Templar, it’s true and well deserved.
Ondur, after coming back home you have shown an everlasting interest and drive to grow and see Taldryan prosper. Versatile and willing to compete in just about any platform, no matter how easy or difficult it may be. Your star is bright and you will go far if you keep doing what you have been doing so far. Congratulations on being Knighted and receiving your real lightsaber. Wield it with pride! Aside from a promotion, Ondur has also received a Dark Cross for kicking ass!
Kooks, next to your master Armags one of our resident gaming powerhouses. Congratulations on hitting Jedi Hunter. The road to Dark Jedi Knight is a long and arduous one, but you will get there in no time if you keep on pushing like you are doing.
Congratulations to all three of you!!
Mav has taken it upon himself to select the next battleteam leader for the Harbingers due to my prolonged absence (more on that below btw). Armags stood out among the candidates and has been handed the reigns for the next turn. There's a lot I could say and try to predict about how he'll do things for you little Harbinger people, but I won't spoil the surprises. Be prepared to bring your A-game all the time though ;)
Please join me in welcoming the newest Dinaarian, Kmk513.
Dark Crusade: Fading Light
The first round of the Fading Light ACC-chapter has been completed with the second round kicking off in a few hours (keep your eyes on the news page for more info, I assume). The majority of Taldryan was on bye/seeded so there will be some interesting battles going on this round! Good luck and god speed to us all.
LIST OF BATTLES
Our brothers over in Ekky also have some battles to fight, and let's not forget the members of our clan summit.
There’s some competitions going on that you can enter in between your ACC posts. If you are in the ACC, treat these as secondary objectives. Or, you know, DO ALL THE THINGS! (Thanks to Howie for the list - I'll add the links in a few minutes.)

For all of those that have missed me/been worrying/and so on. I’ve had some minor complications and had to check into the local hospital a few times. Nothing too serious, just some stitching that needed to be redone. I’m hopefully cleared and ready to assume direct control of all you little pandas once again. Sorry for making you all worry.
No quote for this month, or next month. I’m thinking about something else to do.
On a second note, if there is anyone that wants to run a competition, or has any questions/complaints/tips/tricks/hints, feel free to shoot me an email or pm me on IRC. I’ll always make time to be approachable and “there” on a personal level.
That’s all folks! I hope to see all of you in the ACC!
