This is a short one. After the September-October new CORE blitz, the past few weeks have been quiet around the Shadow Academy. Grading and editing continues as usual, and we put out a couple of great new Novitiate Hall courses: one that covers the basics of the Fist-o-matic bot, and another explaining the many mysteries of Telegram. Many thanks to Ood who headed up the Fist-o-matic course launch for me while I was traveling for work. I also want to congratulate him on earning his first Sapphire Blade for his dedication to the Shadow Academy!
A lot of our planned projects, including additions/changes to the new CORE courses, the History Department, and the Legends Department, are in stasis (like so much else) until The Force Awakens, uhhh, awakens them with new timelines and lore changes that will alter our own special DJB version of headcanon. Also, given the rapidly-approaching holiday season, there isn't likely to be much big news out of the Shadow Academy until January when we've all had time to digest the movie a time or ten.
Finally, as Wally noted in his recent report, with the on-going changes to Lightsabers in the DJB, we're looking for someone willing to take on the task of revising the two current lightsaber courses on offer. Shoot me and Ood an email if you're interested in helping out!
Since my last report, the top five exam takers at the SA are:
|Name||# of Exams|
|Courier Qyreia Arronen||41|
|Acolyte Tyron Kesh||26|
|Neophyte Violet Cuscuta||22|
This is the first time that a non-Force user has topped the list. :p Great work, everyone!
As always, I'd like to close this report by asking for your help. The SA is a massive wall of text that covers ever-shifting topics and is prone to typos and run-on sentences. If you spot substantive or grammatical problems, please let me, Ood, and the course PROF know so that we can fix them ASAP. As we work through the Departments during the audit, we're also going to be asking for help reading and editing -- if you have any particular expertise, let us know when we announce the next Department being audited. There are shiny things available. :P
