Happy Valentines Day, Muurians!
If you don’t have a Valentine, don’t worry, we’ll be your Valentines!
I hope you are all staying warm and safe in all of this crazy winter weather. I for one can’t wait until spring arrives, but there are some fun things coming before we get there! If you haven’t heard yet we have Operation: Antiquity coming up soon! This is a Co-Op event Plagueis is going to be taking part in with Clan Naga Sadow, this is shaping up to be really fun competition and I am really excited to see how we work with CNS.
Check out Ronnie’s report for the event teaser fiction here.
Now let's get to it!
Well, not as many shinies to report this time around, but still well done to all of you! Keep up all the activity and keep filling our inboxs with your wonderful entries. Also a big shout out to Vacen, he must have been bitten by the gaming bug. Hmm I wonder why, Drac ;) :P
A huge shout out again to Vacen for all of his work at jumping through the ranks. From Initiate to Proselyte in a matter of three days. Good job Vacen, We can all see that you will be going far.
I want to spend my moment this month to talk about positions in the Brotherhood.
Taking on a position in the Brotherhood is not only really important in making the club as amazing as it is but it is incredibly rewarding. If you want to see change in the Brotherhood you this is your opportunity to bring your own touch to the different aspects of the club from leadership positions to helping out with the different societies. Not every position is grandiose and there is definitely some work involved and some of them may even push you into trying new things, but that is part of the fun! One of the things I personally find most rewarding about holding a position in the Brotherhood is being able to help and encourage members, but that’s just me and everyone gets something different out of giving back to the club!
Now I know from personal experience that applying to a Brotherhood position can be daunting. I have been extremely apprehensive about each position I’ve applied for. If you have any interest at all in an open position, PLEASE put in an application. Not only is it good practice, but you may surprise even yourself and what you are capable of. Plus, one of the great things about applying for positions in this club is that many people are willing to give feedback on your application and tell you how you can improve not only in regards to the position but in your application writing skills.
If you would like a hand with any applications you are writing please don’t hesitate to ask someone for a second set of eyes on it, I know from experience that your fellow members are willing to help out.
If anything holding a position looks really good on promos and recs ;)
So go out there and work it!
