What a week. So if anyone has not heard or took notice Battlelord Etah had to take care of things in R/L and made a HARD decision to step aside as our Questor. I had debated about writing a fiction regarding it but came to the conclusion that would not do him justice. So I sat down and tried to come up with something that is commensurate with Etah and his tenure here.
Etah, you know you proposed this ride to me back in January. At a time when I was undecided of my path and what the hell I should be doing. We had a lot of discussions going into the application process, what we wanted to do, what direction the House should go. You were always at the forefront of those discussions, and I learned a lot in those few weeks before us getting selected for House Shar Dakhan. What amazed me, is coming from a different Clan, what an abundant amount of knowledge you had regarding General Shar Dakhan. I was blown away at that knowledge, and it set me at ease that the House would be in good hands. More importantly, I wanted to sponge that knowledge so I would not look like such a “mouth-breather” when our folks would start talking history or coming up with story ideas.
Your demeanor and outlook of every member in the House were instrumental in guiding not only me but the House. You were always objective and took the time to hear and listen to every detail of whatever was being discussed. A trait which is genuinely indicative of wisdom, patience, and temperament.
Unfortunately, the ugliness of real life hits us all at one time or another. We had those talks more than once, I was honored to rest the burden of the House on my shoulders. I cannot even begin to express the appreciation and gratitude I have for you and your time to mentor me. I will continue to seek your counsel, and will always enjoy the friendship and laughs we had and look forward to more in our future.
I as well as House Shar Dakhan, cannot thank you enough and you will always be family. So from HSD and myself, thank you Etah Bloodfyre!
That being said, I need to get down to some business. As you know, I sent out an email regarding a House meeting on T/G. This meeting is tentatively set for Sunday at 10 am EST. If that is an issue for anyone, please let me know. With that, I created a GDOC page, inviting everyone to the mix so they can see the idea(s) I have been thinking for the House. Which we will discuss in detail during our meeting. I do not want to take up much of everyone’s Sunday, so like to keep it relatively short, sweet and to the point. Plus I want to accommodate our folks who are overseas so bare that in mind as well.
So the other issue is, now that the Aedile seat is open, I am excepting applications. I will be promoting this to the max so I apologize in advance. Here are the requirements listed by our Consul Bentre Stahoes:
The universal expectations of an Aedile are as follows:
