House Galeres - Quaestor Report


House Galeres - Quaestor Report



Welcome to my one and only report as Quaestor of House Galeres.

The War is over, my friends! We came out the other side in 2nd place, losing only to to our dear friends in Clan Odan-Urr, who put on an amazing performance to come out on top. That being said, we had a few members who went far above and beyond with their efforts and I am extremely proud of them. We will discuss that in more detail below.

First though, I wanted to announce my impending resignation from the position of Quaestor. When I signed on to become QUA of House Galeres, I made it known to Atyiru and Kordath both that I would be doing so on a limited 3-6 month term to work on training a replacement and getting us through the Great Jedi War. I would hesitate to say I completed the latter very well; as Quaestor there is a need to be deeply involved, to be able to take the time to talk and be with your members to encourage them, and after nearly three years of continuous leadership in various roles… that’s just not me any longer.

And that is not to say that I am not immensely grateful to the members of House Galeres and Clan Arcona. I am extremely proud that Arcona can boast the most members to hit 100% participation within the Great Jedi War, but I also know that my time in leadership should have ended months ago. The torch needs to be passed on to younger, more energetic and approachable leaders. With that exact thought in mind, I can’t speak highly enough of the efforts our Aedile has made, and of whom I have had the honor of awarding the Sapphire Blade.

Qyreia Arronen came to Arcona just under ten months ago and in that time he has continually contributed in activity, served in multiple positions as a leader, mentored members within Arcona, and most recently not only participated in every bin of the GJW, but earned himself a Gold Nova and a Bronze Nova for his work. Beyond his impressive showing in the War, he has participated in 82 competitions, (co)organized 2 competitions, completed 17 fiction activities for 43445 words submitted, and 5 run-on posts for 9642 words. Across these achievements he has earned (2 CR-D, 6 CR-R, 4 CR-A, 7 CR-S, 5CR-E, 2 PoB, 149 CF’s, 104 CI’s, 93 CE’s, 17 CG’s) as well as 3 Scrolls of Foundation. All this while also serving for a combined seven months as Aedile of Galeres and three months as Quaestor.

This level of activity, leadership and hard work is nothing short of exemplary. Qyreia has been more than my right hand during these last few months that I have served as Quaestor and I cannot thank him enough for what he has done. He and I have butted heads, argued, and disagreed at times about how to handle things. I can honestly say that, despite that, I believe Qyreia is the future of this House, and he has my blessings in all of his future endeavors.

Rulvak is a staple member of Galeres and of Arcona. Leading constantly from that front with his activity and engagement among the Clan and the Gaming community. Since his last recognition, he has participated in 55 competitions (claiming 1 GN, 3 SN,1 BN, 5 CR-D, 7 CR-R, 1 CR-A), 5 Pendants of Blood, 1266 Clusters of Fire, 2071 Clusters of Earth, 8 Clusters of Ice and 16 Clusters of Graphite during the course of completing 39 PvP Activities and 212 PvE Activities with 4 fictions and 2251 words of Fiction alongside 4 RO Posts with 1687 words submitted.

Rulvak was one of only six members of his Clan to claim 100% participation during the Great Jedi War and tied his Consul for the most number of Novae earned within Arcona.

Another member of House Galeres who went on to earn 100% participation is our former Battleteam Leader and Gaming Guru - Rulvak Qurroc. Going so far as to post three back-to-back posts for his run-on on the final day of the event to ensure he gained 100% participation. Along with an immense amount of activity and work within the Brotherhood’s gaming community it was the Clan’s pleasure to award Rulvak with his second Sapphire Blade.

  • Atty/Sati asks: #AskDonny what's next for all your characters? Uji? Grandpa? The New N/PC?

I haven’t really thought on it much to be honest, outside of the war I have not had much interest in writing in the last few months. It’s part of the reason I intend to retire Uji as I think as a character he’s run his full arc. Quite literally moving from the grimdark edgelord I wrote him as when I was an EQ1 way back when (I just laughed saying that to myself), to becoming a character that has been used and enjoyed by so many within the Club.

He’s at a point where he (much like myself) is ready to retire and live a somewhat comfortable life moving forward. He has a family to look after, friends he would’ve never expected to have, he’s lost loved ones and enemies alike to the ravages of time and the constant conflict of the Brotherhood and he hasn’t found much use for himself.

There are more intelligent, more active, more prepared heroes within Arcona and the Lotus to take his place and he’s come to terms with that.

  • Turel asks: #AskDonny What are your immediate retirement plans? Also, what would Uji want to do for a hypothetical bro-date? :P

Well, while I’ll be stepping down from my position within Clan leadership, I’ve spoken with Drac and I will continue on as a Magistrate to the Fist. I can honestly say that my contributions to the gaming community bring me no end of enjoyment; I love running competitions, I enjoy participating in creating content for members of the entire Club to partake in. Drac, Edgar, Juna and Alaris are amazing members who I will continue to work with up until Drac or Edgar give me the boot.

I’d imagine with Satsi stuck on the throne now, Uji would have a lot more free time to explore other worlds and opportunities. I hear the gardens of Kiast are extremely beautiful throughout parts of the year and I’m sure the Consul could spare him to visit.

  • Ernordeth asks: #askdonny is TLJ your new favorite over ESB? Cause it's mine :p

I haven’t seen it yet, for I am a scrublord.

Closing Words

I wish everyone the best of luck moving forward and am eternally grateful for the opportunities I have had to serve the Clan, from BTS of Soulfire (that’s Sergeant for when it existed) through Proconsul. It has been a pleasure and something I will never forget.

Thank you, Galeres.

Thank you, Arcona.

He's.../me puts on sunglasses...log gone.

Thank you for everything, brother.

It was good working with you, Uji. I'm glad I got the opportunity to learn under the boughs of your guidance. I hope to prove that you leaf the House in good hands.

I hope you're oak-kay! You've certainly done a pine job, and this is all fir the best. I'll cedar you around!

Thanks for being someone I could learn from!

Farewell log!

(And when I say farewell, I expect to see you everywhere except in that leadership position still <3)

Farewell, Mr. Log. May lay your endeavors in retirement be... fruitful? That felt a little wooden. I’ll just seed myself out.

*all even. Wow.

Take a bough. Though it is time for you to leaf leadership, be sequoia in the knowledge that Galeres shall continue to grow thanks to your firmly rooted wisdom. You handled the stresses of leadership with minimal beech-ing, while planting the seeds for the next generation of leaders. Indeed, you did a pine job. Enjoy your retirement, Log!
