As the world turns, so do Alaris reports… or something.
In the last two weeks, we have seen FIVE people transfer to Taldryan! Please join me in welcoming Destavol, Bobecc, Rathus, Armags and Sirrus into the Taldryan fold, either for the first time or once more. We’re happy to have you back!
The Great Jedi War may have been postponed (though still within smelling distance), so I’m advising all of you to keep that focus up. There are a few things coming your way in the nearest of futures to keep you busy in the meantime. When it comes to activity, I’m not looking for a Jabrill Peppers. Do what you love doing! Even if you just grab a couple flash games and puzzle type competitions, it’s still contributing to the event!
I also wanted to take a moment to congratulate those of you who competed in Winds of Change. I’ve seen a few really great stats from the ACC, and I’m sure I’ll be corrected if I’m wrong, but I believe we have only had two timeouts from Taldryan! Considering what our participation ratio has been in Winds of Change, you have a whole lot to be proud of. We’ll find out who our Clan Champion will be as soon as the rest of it wraps up, but congratulations!
This has encouraged me to continue to test Taldryan’s ACC strength. Perhaps some kind of Taldryan specific ACC event (/endhintsaboutpostgjwstuff)
This month, I’m giving it to Kaz!
Kaz has been one of our most active members on Telegram and has been working hard to hype up Taldryan once again. He’s also passed 15 (edit: 19. He’s competed four more since I’ve started writing this report) Shadow Academy courses and earned two Mavens (edit: three Mavens and a Savant) in the interim, and that’s all since Tuesday. I’m looking forward to some more amazing activity from this badass!
The Grand Master gave his biannual report to the Star Chamber and there will be a delay before the Great Jedi War. Alaris note: This is a really good read, and if you haven’t read it yet, go do so. There is a lot of important information in it.
The Praetor to the Headmaster took over for Farrin this report and gave us info on current projects the SA Staff is undertaking. Alaris note: Firstly, congrats to Laren on also being named Aedile of Karness Murr. B of all, this report also features Sang and Kelly, and you get to learn a little about them. It’s a pretty juicy report.
We have a Supplemental Fist Report wherein Drac Magic gives us some new comps and some important Telegram rules.
When I played in forum based Star TREK clubs, I used to love being the helmsman, and indeed, playing any other sims, I always play helm. There's something really amazing about playing as a pilot.
From a personality standpoint, he/she would likely be pretty introverted, but never shy away from raising their opinion when they feel strongly about it. This would make them appear pretty standoffish, but they care a lot about those brave enough to get close to them.
Not sure about alignment, but playing a lighty after 10 years (holy cow) of playing Alaris, who is evil as heck, could be refreshing.
A coffee maker. I don't think I could operate at all without coffee. I'm already cranky, and I'm much more so pre-caffeine.
Edit: After a continued discussion of the values of french press and pour overs, I changed my response to “a kettle.”
This is a great question that I've been mulling for some time. I'm going to say "Yes, but" on this one.
Yes, but the dismemberment would have to be halfway up the lekku for it not to cause any neurological damage. A Twi'lek would probably want a cybernetic for balance purposes and communication purposes. So, a soft yes. We'll wanna double check with the Voice staff, though.
Never. Not ever.
(edit: and PeCans)
I’m actually drinking a cappuccino right now, but whatever.
It’s moving time for Alaris. I’ve spent the last week packing and I’ll spend the next week packing and moving. The plan WAS to rent an SUV from Enterprise, drive it to my new city, and drop it off there. This normally comes with a fee of $150ish, which, at the end of the day, is STILL cheaper than renting from, say, UHaul.
Well, Enterprise Toronto is about to buy a bunch of 2018 cars come September, which is awesome, but in order to make room for this new fleet, they had to sell off a bunch of their current cars, which is making their current Toronto fleet rather sparse. Because of this, they will no longer allow you to take a car out of their jurisdiction without returning it to Toronto.
This means, I have to rent the SUV, drive to Sarnia (3 hours), unload my junk into my new place, drive back to Toronto (another 3 friggen hours), return the SUV, THEN hitch a ride with a friend who has a smaller car back to Sarnia.
It’ll cost me less money but it means I have 9 hours of highway travel coming up over the next week. This is part of the reason I never became a truck driver. I’ll never know how Brimstone does it.
I have the honour to be your obedient servant,
A (dot) Jinn.
