As I’m sure you’re all aware by now, I’ve been appointed as your new Aedile following Mirus’ elevation to Praetor to the Grand Master. Previously I had served as the Tetrarch of the Disciples of Baas, a responsibility now taken over by Cable.
I do apologize for being a little late with my report. I have gone from Codecademy to a proper Diploma in Website Development, and am still experimenting with study schedules that achieve my necessary targets on time and have had some other drama come up early this week.
I am stepping back in to IRC from today, though I do have a Herald project to catch up on as well as some personal fiction to update and a character sheet to amend. Should make for a fun weekend :)
I remain best reachable by email, and have been able to keep abreast of discussions and what have you despite the near flood of achievements you’ve all been making. I’m also contactable by the rest of the Summit on Whatsapp for something urgent (though I am Australian and do sleep :P).
As per Liam’s email, we ran into some administrative difficulties on our end and have migrated almost everyone to a new Googlegroup. The new address is [Log in to view e-mail addresses]
I was not able to migrate Kaylesha Blackheart or Justin Wayne, but have emailed them both with invites and I hope to have them on shortly.
My main responsibility as Aedile is to coordinate and drive our House projects, so if you have a proposal or want to do something, let me know and I’ll coordinate with the rest of the Summit to keep things rolling and on time.
I need to touch base with the Gazette project team to see where that stands. I am currently unaware of any other major projects going on, so if you are in the middle of something, please let me know too so I can keep track of things and help out - and give awards - where needed.
We are also working on a “bounty board” where we will be posting projects on Trello, where people can “claim” the bounty/project in a bounty hunter kinda way. I need to poke my nose in and ensure that we can launch this soon.
Mirus has committed some of his time to finish off his mini-Vendetta, Affliction, and provided us with the awesome ending fiction and some words of encouragement including a shoutout to T’Espera, who was able to achieve second place overall despite being only a Disciple, against some experienced Knights and Equites.
The overall winner was Rhiann at 45 points, with Kaira and T’Espera joint second place at 40 points, and Kaayn in third place with 35 points. The Light Side won in the end with 185 points against the Dark Side’s 160 points.
Thank you to everyone who participated - your time is valuable, and thank you for contributing it.
When does it launch? Soon (tm). As long as things go according to plan, the powers that be will be launching Fading Light Round 3 within the next 1-2 weeks. Fading Light is a club-wide Vendetta-level event, and is a great opportunity for us to go head to head against the other Clans and Houses in the club and prove how strong we, as a team, can be. Participation in such high level events is highly regarded around the club, provides us with new people to challenge ourselves against, furthers our stance as the defenders of Light in the galaxy and makes for a lot of fun and opportunities to show how talented we are.

My September Poetry competition has ended, with the following results: 1st place: Korvyn 2nd place: Ji 3rd place: Seridan 4th place: Kairus
Thank you all for participating, I found Korvyn’s to be the most thought-provoking and I was quite happy with the quality of everyone’s work. As a side note, Western Haiku are either 10-14 or 17 syllables - multiple stanzas aren’t correct in this form of poetry and I did request one entry be modified to accommodate this. Well done everyone :)
