House Ajunta Pall Quaestor Report #19: The Charge Of The Light Brigade

Introduction

Plagueis, it I, your friendly whip-wielding Quaestor. There's going to be the usual news from Plagueis and elsewhere and some talk about the Rite of Supremacy. And on the eve of the day that marks 100 years since the end of The Great War, this month's subtitle is the name of a poem that covers the titular event, during the Crimean War. I don't mean for this to sound all preachy, but as someone who's had grandparents and great-grandparents serve in the armed forces during times of war, I think we should show appreciation for their sacrifice that allows us to live the lives we do for more than one day a year.

Rite of Supremacy

On the topic of the RoS, the final phase starts tomorrow and runs until the 19th. I would suggest making sure any event long bins you plan to enter are done before phase 3 comps go live. Also, as with last month, I'd like to emphasise bin participation over bin completion. It's more beneficial to both you and the clan to submit to as many bins as possible to maximise participation points. If you can try to fill in the bins after you've got participation, go for it, but covering all the bins should be the priority. Either late this month or early next month is when I'd keep an eye out for results, though they may not seem like it at times, the DC are people too but I imagine they'll post about when they expect to release results after the RoS has finished.

Kelly's Cultural Corner

So I thought I'd share something I found a few weeks ago and enjoyed. It's a video by a British YouTuber examining the political beliefs set forth of the science fiction novel Starship Troopers, a 1959 book by Robert A. Heinlein that was turned into a 1997 movie directed by Paul Verhoeven. If you're interested I'll link the video so you can watch for yourself. The Politics of Starship Troopers

Closing Thoughts

So that is all from me, my precious Pallians. Enjoy the end of the RoS and Tara's Aedile report will be on the 20th. Stay safe and try to enjoy yourself.

Nice report, kelly. Looking forward to Phase 3 :)

Good to have Sarai and Ami in the clan. And yes, I agree - doing the bins (one event per bin) is better than attempting to complete only a few of them. I'll be working on a run-on post and my individual propaganda piece this weekend, and I've been working hard with my Collective/DB propaganda team.

If a stressed out Yearbook adviser who just completed the first out of six deadlines can do most, if not all, of the bins, then so can you!

Awesome report Kelly!! :) And yes DO ALL THE BINS!!!
