The recruitment drive has been our main focus the last month. While the going is still slow, we are gradually catching the attention of people who aren't members. As a refresher for those who aren't familiar with the project, we are utilizing social media to hook new and active members for our House. Currently, we have a Facebook page, Twitter account, and YouTube channel. I'll link them below and I highly encourage everyone to follow and share the content around.

So far we mostly share all things Star Wars as well as some topics about the House and DJB. New to the drive is an interview series where we sit down for 5 minutes with a Qel-Droman and ask them some questions. This gives visitors to our pages an inside look from people who are already actively enjoying the club. We are always looking for new content to share, and we encourage you to send us any fictions, art, etc. that you wish to publish there. We also call out for any content ideas, video series, themed talks for Facebook and Twitter, and so on. If you have an idea shoot Zujenia an email (and copy Terran) with the subject "HQD Recruitment Drive". We are working on a few competitions focused on building some Recruitment Drive content. So keep an eye out for those.

Lastly, we welcome any volunteers to help keep posts flowing daily and maintaining the platforms. A 24 hour turnaround on messages, daily posting, and a fun, friendly, and open-minded attitude is what we strive for on the team. If interested, let Zuj know.

Aedile Alley

Hey all you wonderful folks!

We have over three weeks till the countdown to war ends. Our wits are sharp and we’re prepared to dig deeper. With the days to come, I intend to go undercover and harass interview the old ones on the best practices, tips, and tricks they have gathered through their war-torn years. I'll release these tales onto the undercona market within the Arcona War room. Bring paint and let's redecorate that chat with teal, the color of Qel-Droma. If you aren't in that chat yet, kick down my door and politely holler for me to add you! Because by goblins, everyone should embrace the soft but creepy light of burning corpses pouring out of that room! Well, that and the abundance of good advice and easy access to proofers. Like, how the underworld do we do a battleplan!

I would like to give a shout out to Constantine. He has been a huge help with the recruitment drive, taking over our Twitter page and flinging out exciting news at our Facebook page. Thank you, Const, for all you do. Mentioning the Recruitment drive, keep your eyes peeled in the near future for a recruitment drive-related event that will have you dishing out creative content series ideas in a quick and light competition. Participants will have an chance for their entries to become official on our social platforms and be given the opportunity to help run them. So bring your thinking caps, the ones splashed in rainbows and glitter, and get those ideas cracking!

Remember, my door is always open. Don't hesitate to hit me up with any questions, concerns, ambitions, or just to talk. Got a competition idea? Let me be your soundboard. And most importantly, follow your dreams!

We're the Crew

May the Force be with you,

Closing Words

There you have it, Qel-Dromans! We're looking at a War in less than a month. The recruitment drive is live and ramping up, with lots of work from both Zuji and Constantine (great job, guys!), and both Kordath and Atyiru are working on expanding Selen and the Dajorra system. There's a ton of opportunities for you all to help out, and a ton of opportunities coming up for you all to prove exactly how badass Arcona is and why we continue to be the First Clan of the Brotherhood. So get out there and show everyone else in the Brotherhood just how awesome you are!

Smash and Grab

But I believe in every one of you. Let's do it!
