Herald report #12: Come with me now


Herald report #12: Come with me now



Exams are done, classes starting. Back to normal.

Welcome to my 12th Herald report. Hope you like it ;)

Shameless plug

You’ve all seen what happened recently with my home Clan, Odan-Urr, and their planet, New Tython. The situation has created a lot of good fiction opportunities for COU, and for me as well. You’ll notice my character is no longer V’yr Vorsa, but this new girl — Negasonic, as Pravus likes to call her :P

Well I still go by Vyr on TG so don’t go calling me Morgan for no good reason. :P

Why the change?

It was necessary to remove a light side character from the DC in a way that would feel natural and not clash with anyone’s story. So I changed characters into one that was originally supposed to be an NPC, and has been developing for well over a year now.

So what now?

Now I go a-pirating :P

But seriously, if you’re interested in seeing what happened before the Fiction Update, go to this link and read my latest fiction. There will be more updates later on as well, as I write the fiction. Enjoy.


Afraid to lose control and caught up in this world

I've wasted time, I've wasted breath I think I've thought myself to death


Real talk:

Custom weapons and warbanners

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please take time to carefully read this section. It’s very important that you know what you can and cannot have at each given rank.

I wanted to take this time to talk to you guys about several important updates related to Custom weapons and Custom warbanners. I’d like to explain how each is handled and what you can actually request, with example images.

Let’s start with:

Custom warbanners

Elders and Dark Council receive the right to have Custom Warbanners. These individuals are not limited to what they can request (although certain items, such as the medallion are still limited to their Leadership and/or Titleholder status). This means you’re not limited by shapes and patterns and can request exotic stuff like these in the examples:

Custom weapons

Wiki pages: Weapons and Lightsabers

We’ve made some changes to the Custom ranged weapons like pistols and rifles. They’re still split into categories: Pistols, Carbines, Sniper rifles and Heavy Weapons, and you till pick components, but it’s the way you pick them that has changed.

After much deliberation, we’ve decided to allow you guys to pick any components from any single category, not just a specific model. So if you want a pistol, you can choose the body of a DL-44, barrel of a DH-17 and a grip of an Enforcer slugthrower and we’ll make it work for you. Also, all the modifications are open to everyone. You can now select a scope, laser and silencer if you wish, or neither of those. Also you may request special additions to the weapon, like logos, scratches, a special finish (extra chrome, etc), leather, wood or other types of grips.

What does this mean for you?

It means you have more options to select from and truly make a custom item you’ll be happy with. You are not limited to what we have shown on the wiki: It is up to you to tell us what you want us to modify. All of what you see on the wiki are just very basic items that we need to modify and upgrade to fit your wishes.

There are several good examples of this where you can see how the components have been modified to fit what the user wants. Check them out and see what I mean.

The request form has been updated to reflect these changes and simplifications, as have the wiki pages. Look through them and enjoy.


I was born without this fear now only this seems clear


Update: Non-Force Users and Lightsabers!

In light of several scenes in the new movie where Finn wields a lightsaber with debatable proficiency, the GM has elected to allow members of the Non-Force User orders to display lightsabers on their dossiers.

What does this mean for you?

This means that you, as an NFU, will be able to display a shiny lightsaber on your dossier and, yes, wield it in the ACC (Direct your ACC related questions to Wally aka Marick Arconae).

What’s the catch?

There’s always one. NFUs are not allowed Custom Lightsabers. They are limited to Custom Ranged and Melee weapons, however this does not limit them from requesting a selector saber as a secondary weapon at a certain rank.

To explain: Raider Redshirt McTrooper will never be able to request a Custom Lightsaber. However he will be able to request a Custom Blaster pistol with a selector saber as a secondary weapon.

It’s that simple. The lightsabers I mention are already in your selectors, so enjoy.

Herald competitions

The Herald's staff will feature two competitions (the third being Atra’s own endeavor) for the foreseeable future. These two are:

Whoa, come with me now I'm gonna take you down


There’s a Form for that

DB Art Community Telegram Group

If you’re interested in joining the TG group and sharing your art, be sure to click the image below:


Whoa, come with me now I'm gonna show you how


Ask the Herald

Atra asks: #AsktheHerald suppose a member wished to make themselves available as the occasional work horse for your office, how should they go about doing so?

If you have a specific project in mind, mail me directly with the proposal and we'll talk. If you just wanna help in general, you can just send me a pm over Telegram and we'll see. There may be opportunities to help somehow. No promises, tho.

Alethia asks: #AsktheHerald Who is this Morgan Sorenn woman and why do I suddenly feel a gravitational pull towards the Herald's office?

She is the black hole

Andrelious asks: #AskTheHerald in an ideal world, what other graphics would you and the Herald office like to be able to provide for members in addition to weapons, warbanners and clothing?

In an ideal world? Character portraits or even full body images. But, alas, this is not the ideal world so we make due.

Len eode asks: #AskTheHerald with the new fictional direction, are we getting new things? Also, because it's my thing, Door Number 1 or Door Number 2?

In all likelihood we will make new stuff as the movies come out. I don’t expect much will change based on fictional development within the DB, however it is something to look at.

Also, in Soviet Croatia, door picks you.

Sanguinius asks: #asktheherald How can I go about restoring the Jedi Order now that COU have seemingly been destroyed?

Seek guidance from the Force. Also, Chariot will contact you soon. :P

Nero asks: #asktheherald: Are the ships released with Possessions going to have custom art.

Each ship type will have an image. So a T-65 will have a different image from a T-70. But ISD X in Arcona and ISD Y in CNS will not be any different graphically.

Rian asks: #AsktheHerald based on nero's question, are we allowed to customize our ships with color schemes or do we have to buy color schemes separately? I don't mean the generic image you provide for possessions but extra images for the Wikis and descriptions on the character sheet or whereever we can describe them.

There won’t be any issues with cosmetics, I believe. but this is a question for the VOICE, rather than me.

Saitou asks: #AskTheHerald Can I get my warbanner updated with two more tassets, even if I had the current banner made under three months ago?

No. You will have to wait.

Sanguinius asks: #asktheherald Will the Sorenns be featuring in a future fiction?

Most likely an ACC battle or two. But yes, I expect they will.

Tasha asks: #Asktheherald will there be a comic about this current event?

I wish we had the skill and time to do it. Unfortunately, no, there won’t be.

Dru asks: #Asktheherald are there any instances where a custom weapon would need VOICE approval first?

Yes. Usually these involve functionality that goes beyond the common weapon. Fingerprint scanners for blade ignitor switches being one such example.

Sanguinius asks: #asktheherald how can I show my thanks for the awesome work the herald office does?

Recruit more people? We need people to give stuff to. No sense in making more if there’s no one to appreciate it, eh? :P

Lexic asks: #asktheherald Who is Morgan B. Sorenn and how did the bucky lastard get Herald?

Read my fiction update.

Commission artists and Artist Feature

Closing word

Welp I haven’t had a report in a while, but it was worth it, I think. Anyway I hope you enjoy the new goodies.

See you Space Cowboys. ;)

Kongos - Come with me now


Now all I need is my EQ1 promo and I can wear my babies.

So pretty! _ Thanks for everyone's hard work~

The Syndicate robes are FABULOUS!

Good to see the NFU custom weapon selection list has been opened up.

Damn... I look sexy... :) Nice work guys!

Nicely done

Nice report, Vyr

Is there a specific format for submitting saber art or different kinds of robes?

I love all the artwork and everything you all do. Keep up the good work!

Is there a specific format for submitting saber art or different kinds of robes?

Unsure what you mean. If you mean if members can somehow submit their own robes, then no, there isn't. However you can mail me any designs you'd like to see in the DB and maybe we'll do them if they fit with our plan. No promises though. ;)

Amazing stuff!

What you meant. Adding to the DB database. I didn't know if there were specific criteria for robe design or weapon design.


I should have known that's how it works in Soviet Croatia! In all seriousness thanks for the answer
