I come to you once again, well past my self-designated and oft-ignored bed time to bring you the week's news and happenings, as well as updates from around the Brotherhood. It's been a relatively quiet news week DB wise, so this report shouldn't take too too long, but in it I'll be addressing
Well folks, we've been up and running in Masters of our Fate since the weekend, and you can all now see the first few competitions that are being made available to you guys. I'm going to grab Howie and start working on the second phase of the event, as well as work toward getting a lengthier plot update out for it sometime next week. This week's time has been consumed by a rather important proposal that I'll talk about in a little bit, as well as lots of debate on the Dark Summit. However, for right now we're spending our focus in Masters looking inwards. The danger comes later.
You can view the current competitions in Masters here:
So, ickle mavviekins (he's going to hate me for that when he gets back) tossed up a report before he headed off into the wilds for a camping and canoeing trip. Personally I find the idea of canoeing anywhere not in Canada offensive, but there's no accounting for taste. His report touched on a few things I alluded to earlier, especially in regards to the upcoming addition of two non-Force weilding orders, the dissolution of the icky Krath and Obelisk orders, and a general shake up of all things DB.
To start off, I guess I should introduce the 5 "new" orders that will be appearing in a galaxy near you at some point in the near future. Along with the orders we'll have 3 paths available to us, and each Order has path connotations attached to it.
The five "new" Orders will be... Sith, Mercenary, Gray Jedi, Loyalist and Jedi. Sith is literally the only Order that us currently staying. Obelisk/Krath are going the way of the dodo, and the current light sided orders are all being merged under a "Jedi" tag. The advent of Gray Jedi, Mercenaries and Loyalists are all brand new options making use of non-Force using characters, and Gray aligned Force users. You can get a good idea of the alignment and orders in this handy chart Mav included:
Now, as interesting as all that may be, you may be wondering what it means for Taldryan itself. The summit has been spending most of its time polishing our alignment proposal, and I'm not going to give anything away quite yet, but I think it's a pretty safe bet given our association with the Gray Paladins that part of our proposal is going to include the Gray Path. As soon as we hear back from the GM/Mavlick as to our final makeup, you guys will know. Until then, keep patient.
In the other major report from the Dark Council this week Jac caught us up on the current happenings of the Chamber of Justice. Thankfully this time around it didn't involve a massive cheating cscandal or any other naughty thing, and it was largely just informative. Make sure you head over and read the old man's report, I know it'll make him happy. He does love being loved.
Also, a bit later in the week Jac announced the appointment of the three newest members of the Brotherhood's Appeals Panel. While the Appeals Panel was only implemented after I retired from Justicar, I recognize just how important it is to ensure excellent representatives of the membership are on there. So congratulations go out to:
I'm sure the three of you will serve the Brotherhood well. Except maybe that Zoron guy. I'm not sure about him.
As always, there are a great number of competitions available for you guys to participate in on top of our Masters competitions, so have a look and see if anything tickles your fancy.
This weekend marks the civic holiday in Ontario, which is to say the "excuse to give us a long weekend in August" holiday, and that means I'll be wandering off on any variety of poorly planned out ideas. I won't be around a whole hell of a lot especially not on irc, but I think Howie should be here to put out any major fires if they pop up.
Oh, also, Telegram isn't completely awful, and thanks to Mark's suggestion, I've been able to get the desktop version installed on my home pc, so I'm available on Telegram now just as much as I am on IRC. Anyways, take it easy folks!
