Less than a day from now, I’ll be watching the new Star Wars movie, and my ability to keep the excitement down is failing. I am pumped! I am excited! And I started staying away from most of the internet starting this morning, and I am going to ramp that internet lockdown into full gear tomorrow morning. I have watched trailers and seen posters, but those have kept the plot details to a minimum, and I have no desire to change those minimums until after I see the movie. After that? All the analysis!
To that end though, I’ll echo my comments from a month or two ago, as well as those from the Consul and the Dark Council. Be careful with talking about the new movie once you’ve seen it. #DB and #taldryan on IRC should be considered spoiler free zones, and so should the main club-wide and clan telegram channels.
With the release of the new movie? Expect to see some plot developments out of both Taldryan and the Dark Council. I for one am excited to see where our universe can go when we’re all let off the leash of waiting for The Force Awakens!
Taldryan has had a number of new members join us in the past while as well as a couple of people that have come back! They are as follows:
Augar Saskuatcha (aka Queko!) has returned to Taldryan from the rogues. Welcome back Little Quejo!
Knight Ondur has returned from the rogues! Welcome back Ondur!
Neophyte Xylnn WolfStalker has also come back to us from the rogues. He’s already taken a huge bite out of the Shadow Academy, and was promoted to his current rank on the 12th!
