House Satele Shan Combined Report 3 November 2017!
Welcome to the November 2017 House Satele Shan combined GJW report!
I hear your drums beating loud ODANITES and your humility still remains!
This reports motivation music comes from Dropkick Murphys with a song called I'm Shipping Up To Boston for one of our final motivational music for the GJW HERE. Set your competition music for this GJW and go out there and reach for the stars!
If you don't go after it, you will never have it
It has been one heck of a GJW. You all have come so far and have truly shown your spirit in all of this. Win, or lose I am so proud of how all the Satellites have been performing. The WAR isn't over yet though. As of writing this report you have 2 Days to get those final submissions in.
Do not worry if you haven't participated yet, or haven't had the time. Even submitting to 1 competition counts. Read further and I will list the easiest ways to help your House and Clan earn participation points in just a matter of minutes and you will have fun doing it too!
I wanted to highlight in this section that you can participate in the “Event Long: Combat Writing: Collective Strike even if you didn't participate in the ACC prelims. Some members have come forward not knowing they could do this event. I wanted to mention it is a easy solo 1v1 combat fiction with you versus one of the NPCs listed in the competition details and it only requires 500 words. This submission will help contribute 3 points in Clan participation. Check out the competition HERE. If you have any questions please let me know
We have had a major turn out in Phase 1, but that doesn't mean we can relax on Phase 2. Review results from the last GJW. House Odan-Urr at the time was in 3rd place. By the end of that last phase 2 and the results for GJW XI were posted we slipped to 5th place. Our start has been strong and now is the final push! The time is now for attempting to hit 1 competition in each bin ODANITES! Every submission no matter how litte, or skillfully you complete it. We got this if we work together.
So participation points I summarized in a user friendly way in my last report for Phase 1 to highlight competitions that don't require a lot of time, skill, but net the Clan major points for participation.
Remember you do not have to do all the competitions. I know the website shows many, but all we need is 1 competition in each individual bin as your time permits.
Currently, there are 8 bins left that you can participate in with various competitions in them. The Run-on competition would be the only hard one to complete, but if your still interested e-mail me ASAP and I will see if we can muster some free members to form a team for you.
Your summit is here to help answer any questions you have if you’re not sure of something. Please do not hesitate to ask.
2nd track of my motivation music for the GJW HERE. The song is called Thunderstruck by AC/DC.

8 bins, 15 individual competitions are still open to participate, and a total of 27 individual possible points and 5 bonus points if you do only 1 competition in each bin. Every point counts from every member and will also help boost our Clan credit supply for each bin a member participates in. These credits will be used to buy even more ships, assets, and more pew pews for the Odanites!

Blast from the Past runs through **November 20th. Fun Shadow Academy exam. *We regret to Inform You runs through **November 20th. Write a letter from the Master-at-Arms to a fictional relative of your character about their death and speak to your characters accomplishments. **Minimum 250 words* Puzzle runs through **November 20th*. Odanites love puzzles. If you haven’t had a chance to get this fun one in then check it out before it ends.
Well, folks, I tried sorting out the different bins. Remember 1 competition from each bin is where we earn Clan participation points for the GJW. The more you participate in will only boost the Clans chances at more points and your chances are higher rewards in the GJW and post GJW rewards when the Summit will be submitting for all participating members. GJW activity is counted higher due to the prestige, so the more you do the better Len and I can work to get you those shinies and promotions. Have fun, be humble, and do not be afraid to submit. Every submission counts and could be those few points that matter in the end.
The last 100 meters of the GJW XII race. We can see the finish line, keep our game faces on! For those of you in Telegram, I made a post with links to all remaining comps as a quick reference. We all have our part to play in pushing Odan-Urr to the top!

The 3rd track of my motivation music for the GJW HERE. The song is called Here comes the boom From P.O.D.. Yes I love the movie “Here comes the Boom too haha.
You all have done great work. Don't let off the gas yes. We will cross this finish line together and enjoy all we have achieved together. Due to the prestige of GJW participation, I will mention our members who submitted to at least 1 competition in each bin for Phase 1. Many of you were close to to getting all 4 bins. Keep it up and there is always the event long and phase 2 bins to earn the bonus! I look forward next month recognizing all of you as the reason we had a blast in the GJW and placed well.
Special shout out to members who participated in all Phase 1 bins
Keep up the great work!
Due to the GJW, I will not be listing activity since activity within units during the GJW is somewhat hidden for a reason. Next report I will combine all GJW activity in the post GJW report.

Well, it’s been a fast start to the GJW and we are only 2 days away from the end of the GJW XII on November 20th at 1959 GMT. If you have free time to spare, or you are looking for something to do this weekend then you are in luck.
Everyone has busy schedules and real life always comes first. Just focus one 1 competition at a time when time allows and have fun with it. I'm so very proud of all of you and how far we have come a during this war.
This event only comes around every couple of years and I know every one of you can do big things. There are at least 3 competitions that can be done in around 5 minutes each depending on how much time you invest into them. I have knocked out some of these easy competitions while on lunch break, in the morning drinking my coffee, and even sitting in bed on my laptop watching TV at night. I encourage you all to dive in even if you only have 10 minutes a day to do so.
If you get a chance please give a special shout out to our own Rollmisstress Blade who earned first place recently in a long, hard, and well fought Jedi Academy bracket. Gold Novae coming your way sista! I'm excited and hopeful for all of our members to have a great shot at Novae after the war ends as well. The more you submit to the better your chances. Well thats it for now folks! Until next time folks keep up the great work and JUST DO IT!
