House Drakonan Report February 06, 2011 Dark Greetings Everyone, It’s time for the weekly report. I’ve got a lot to report this week and a Super Bowl to get ready for (go Steelers!) so let’s jump right into it. News o The Tactical Officer, our very own SBM Dempsey has released a report and it’s available for viewing at the Tactical Office. o The Fleet Commander has also released a report that can be viewed at the Emperor’s Hammer Main Site Awards Alrighty then, it must be the first report of the month because I have a load of awards to tell everyone about. o The first batch of awards comes from winning Tuba’s Stingray Trivia competition. This week there was a three way tie between Dark Adept Zeth Durron, Guardian Jade Night, and Sith Battlemaster Dempsey. All three received a Legion of the Scholar for their outstanding performance. o Dark Jedi Knight Tuba received a prestigious Steel Cross this week for his outstanding level of activity and achievement. Tuba has consistently been an active member of this House, driving himself and others to excel. He has done extremely well as the Battleteam Leader of Stingray, driving activity, encouraging members, and exceeding expectations of the position. On top of all that he has managed to find the time to complete 26 courses (16 with a perfect score), fly 50 missions in the past month, maintain daily email contact with me, be active on the message board, participate in the Crazy Caption Competition, submit graphics for the House Drakonan website, and establish good communications with his team. This truly impressive performance has earned him this prestigious medal and the respect of this House. o Sith Battlemaster Anahorn Dempsey has also received a Steel Cross. Dempsey flew an absolutely staggering 673 missions last month, released a Battle and a Free mission to the Battle Center, completed 28 courses with 15 perfect scores, and submitted a fiction piece for the House Drakonan fiction archive. This level of activity is an example for everyone and an achievement for anyone. Way to go Demps! o Sith Battlemaster Anahorn Dempsey also received a Star of Eos this week. According to the Dark Side Compendium a Star of Eos is to be awarded for “consistent and dedicated activity” and Dempsey is a fine example of this. Since I have taken command of this House Dempsey has not only met, but exceeded any reasonable activity level by a wide margin. In addition Dempsey’s activities are the sort that drive activity among her peers and incidentally keeps everyone involved in processing the activity hustling to keep up. Extremely well done Dempsey! o Dark Jedi Knight Mark Scheuler received a Dark Cross this week. DJK Scheuler only had two weeks of active membership lasty month after returning from the rogues, but in those two weeks he managed to release two free missions, be active on the House message board and irc, and fly 16 missions. I’m eagerly waiting to see what he manages to do in a full month, but couldn’t let such a level of achievement in that short time go unrewarded. Well done! Competitions February Monthly Topic (New!) Start Date: February 1, 2011 End Date: February 28, 2011 Groups involved: All active Dark Brotherhood members Awards: 1st place: Cr-1D; 1nd place: Cr-1R; 3rd place: Cr-1A Description: It's the beginning of a new year and the beginning of a new era in the Dark Brotherhood, and the beginning of a new series of Monthly Topics. In light of that the topic for this month is "Beginnings" Write something in whatever format you choose about a new beginning you've experienced as a DB member. Stories should be a minimum of five pages. Submit all entries to ascottcampbell7@aol.com Crazy Caption Competition Start Date: January 29, 2011 End Date: January 29, 2012 Groups involved: Dark Brotherhood Awards: An Emerald Crescent for the winner of the vote. Description: Each week I'll post a Star Wars or Star Wars related image in the House Drakonan forum of the Message Board along with what I hope is a moderately humorous 'caption.' Your task is to come up with one (or more, up to 5 maximum) funny caption(s) of your own for that picture. At the end of the week (7 days from being posted).I'll create a poll so that everyone can vote for which caption they think is funniest. The winner of the vote gets a Emerald Crescent and their caption will be displayed at the House Drakonan site along with the picture in a Humor Gallery. I can only have ten options in a poll, so if there are more than ten entries, I will narrow them down to 10 to be voted on using my best judgement. Each week a new image will be posted so there will be plenty of opportunities to exercise your creativity in humorous ways. This contest is open to any active DB member. All entries should be posted on the Message Board in the thread where the image is posted. Good luck everyone and I look forward to you making us all laugh. Stingray Squadron Trivia Start Date: January 23, 2011 End Date: January 27, 2012 Groups involved: Dark Brotherhood Awards: At the end of the week, highest point total wins a Legion of the Scholar. Crescent awards for cumulative correct answers: Cr-1Q for 25, Cr-1T for 50, Cr-1E for 100, Cr-1S for 200, Cr-1A for 400, Cr-1R for 800, and Cr-1D for 1500 lifetime answers. Yes, that's almost 6 straight years of weekly trivia, but it's something to aspire to. Description: Each week I will ask 5 questions from material found on Wookieepedia and the Dark Side Compendium. Members will respond via email. The first correct answer each day receives 2 points, while each correct answer for the same day receives 1 point. The weekly competiton will run from Sunday to Thursday, with the winner announced during my weekly Battleteam report on Friday. Any member who wins 3 weeks in a row, is required to sit out for a week to give others a chance, but they may still answer the questions for points toward their cumulative total. (Note that despite the name this competition is open to all active DB members. Send all entries to tuba@nemont.net . An Image of Darkness Start Date:January 9, 2011 End Date: February 11,2011 Groups involved: House Drakonan Awards: Crescent-Sapphire Star (Cr-1S) for 1st, Crescent-Emerald Star (Cr-1E) for 2nd. Description:Time to make pretty pictures! We need a banner for the House. I'd like to use it for the House Drakonan Website. Design to your heart's content but I'd definitely like to see something appropriate to Dark Side Jedi as a whole or something that includes an image reflecting each Order. (i.e. a banner that features a TIE fighter might be great for Stingray, but not the entire House.) In addition to the medal I'll make sure to credit you on the website when it goes up so everyone can recognize your work. Submit all entries to ascottcampbell7@aol.com. Debriefing Start Date: January 9, 2011 End Date: February 11,2011 Groups involved: House Drakonan Awards: Crescent-Sapphire Star (Cr-1S) for 1st, Crescent-Emerald Star (Cr-1E) for 2nd. Description: In our wonderful Shadow Academy we have a course available on Writing Debriefs. If you haven't taken a look at it I urge you to do so. The idea of this competition is to bring back the practice of writing debriefs about the combat our members engage in. The rules are simple. Fly a mission (any DB platform) or fight a duel in one of our FPS games (since MP is problematic for the older games I will accept entries that used 'bots' in an MP arena) and then write a debrief about what happened. I won't repeat the course notes here, but specificity and good description are the keys to a good debrief. Let me know what your goal(s) were. What strategy you went in with, The way you carried it out, etc. (i.e. I was to destroy a Rebel corvette and decided my best method of attack would be to approach from the rear and employ a loadout of advanced concussion missiles. As I closed with my target a flight of X-Wings moved in from 8 o'clock high, etc.) When you submit please include the mission you flew or arena you dueled in, what platform you played on, and the mission/arena name. The winning entries will eventually find a home in the fiction archive. Send all submissions to ascottcampbell7@aol.com. The Uses of Power Start Date: January 9, 2011 End Date: February 11,2011 Groups involved: House Drakonan Awards: Crescent-Sapphire Star (Cr-1S) for 1st, Crescent-Emerald Star (Cr-1E) for 2nd. Description:This is a fiction based competition open to the entire House. I hope that this can become an ongoing competition if there is enough interest to merit it. The basic idea is that I will select a power from the list in the Dark Side Compendium and you write a story or essay about one of three things: 1) How your character first learned the power. 2)A unique story where you put the power to an interesting or unconventional use during a past mission. 3) A story from the early years of the Old Republic where a Sith or Jedi "discovers" this power and how they did so. The entry should show that you have a familiarity with the power's DSC description and limitations. At first I will be choosing more commonly accessible powers, available to lower ranks. If at some point in the future I choose a higher level power that may not be available to you at your rank, you can write a story where you observed its use by another dark jedi or even an enemy. Be creative and have fun. The object here is to explore the possibilities available with the Force as our ally. I'll give you fair warning, stick to the DSC and its descriptions and do NOT tell me what "Starkiller" can do. I enjoyed the first entries quite a bit and I’m really looking forward to reading the entries in the next round. This time I’ve chosen Farseeing as the power for you to weave a story or essay about. I'll be saving the winning entries to add to the EH fiction archive when it is operational and (if possible) add to the House website when it is completed. In the meantime there are medals to be won. I'll accept entries of 1 page at minimum to a 6 page maximum. Submit all entries to ascottcampbell7@aol.com. Activities The new Monthly Topic has been released this week, and I’d like everyone to keep it in mind as something to do. Just to be clear on this issue, this is still a Dark Council sponsored competition, and carries commensurate rewards. I’m merely administrating it at the request of Grand Master Hades. Details can be found in this report, in the House Drakonan Competitions area or in the Competitions area on the main Emperor’s Hammer site. Participating in the new Crazy Caption Competition is considered activity even if you don’t win you can always think of something witty to get active. In addition to the competitions available currently, Xantros has a run-on available for everyone to participate in on the Message Board. If you’re having trouble finding it, it was started in the “Fiction” section of the MB rather than the House Drakonan area where everything else is located. Keep in mind that if you are a pilot, Battles and missions can be submitted as both TC and DB activity for the same mission, so be sure to deluge your BTL (and me) with cc: s of anything you fly. There are always courses available to be taken in the EH university of your choice for activity. Activity Tracking QUA/KE Monnte – Worked on Drakonan website, flew XWA Free 140, email contact with several members, Crazy Caption Competition, created and released History of the Mandalorians Part 2, Stingray Trivia, boring bureaucratic duties and paperwork, the usual. ;) BTL/DJK Tuba- Worked on Drakonan website, Created graphics for the House, wrote Battleteam report, email contact, took several courses, ran trivia competition for the entire DB, participated in Crazy Caption Competition. WELL DONE ! SBM Anahorn Dempsey- completed several courses, participated in Stingray Trivia, participated in Crazy Caption Competition. Well Done!

Now if I’ve missed anyone for this week, let both myself and your BTL know (if applicable) and I’ll be sure to update that in my report next week. Final Thoughts There’s been a lot going on this week and the return of a few people to active duty, which I’m always glad to see. Also the Crazy Caption Competition started with a bang and some really good submissions. Week 2’s image has already been posted in the forum and the voting thread for Week 1’s submissions has been created and is active. Don’t miss the chance to add your own submission this week as well as to exercise your ability to vote for the winner of week 1. Tuba’s Trivia continues to steamroll along, gathering new participants every week and giving a small dose of darkside delight every day as well. In the coming week several competitions will end on the 11th. Don’t miss your chance to submit entries for competitions like the Uses of Power 2, Debriefing, and Images of Darkness. I’m happy to be a part of re launching the Monthly Topic for everyone to participate in, I’ve had several members request the return of this competition, so I’m hoping that I’ll be doing a lot of reading at the end of the month and awarding some of the really nice Crescents to DB members. For those of you craving a run on until the next phase of the overall plot begins, stop in the Fiction forum of the Message Board and join Tuba and Xantros in creating a humorous biography for Lord Vader. All in all an excellent week and one in which I got to hand out several awards to deserving members as Drakonan continues to grow. Good work everyone and let’s keep moving forward!
