KE Tomaas Montte - 14
For: Clan Drakonan's
Posted By: D Tomaas Montte
Posted On: March 6, 2011



Dark Greetings Everyone,

               It’s time for the weekly report.  I’ve been down and out with a flu bug most of the week so this one will be short. I promise in the next few days if I continue to feel better, I’ll get needed medals awarded and other paperwork (including point compilation for the Sword of Drakonan competition) caught up.


Quaestor’s Quote of the Week

I thought I’d start including a quote each week that I found humorous or interesting. The inaugural quote comes from “Knight Errant” by John Jackson Miller:

“The Sith were evil; the Mandalorians just had an attitude problem.” Jedi Knight Kerra Holt



o   Dempsey has released a TAC Report. You can take a look at it here: http://tac.emperorshammer.org/reports/305.html

o   I managed to speak to XO Rapier this week briefly during my illness and have managed to confirm for all those that have been asking that it is 20 ABY officially in the EH timeline. So for those interested in writing and continuity, etc. That’s the date we work with. I also added some links to the House Drakonan site to assist your canon timeline research.

o   Due to a distinct lack of participation 2 weeks in a row now, I’m suspending the Crazy Caption Competition. Tuba will of course receive his medal for participation. This one started strong but simply tapered off to virtually nothing. I’ve said this too many times to count folks: What sort of competitions/activities do you want? I can run virtually anything within the DB canon, so let me know.

o   DJK Tuba is taking a Leave of Absence from March 18th – 28th and is looking for someone to fill in for him in running the Trivia competition during that period. Get in touch with him if you can help out.


o   KAP Xantros awarded the Quartz Star for correctly answering 25 DB Trivia questions, becoming the first to achieve a Lifetime Correct Answer Award (LCAA) medal.  Outstanding!
o   SBM Dempsey awarded the Steel Cross for impressive activity during the month of February!  Well done!
o   OBM Zsinj awarded the Quartz Star for correctly answering 25 DB Trivia questions, for the second LCAA.
o   DJK Tuba will be getting another Emerald Crescent for his CCC submissions, log on to vote for which one gets displayed at the site.
o   DJK Kaisin Mirtez won the Legion of the Scholar again this week for winning the Trivia Competition.

Between A Rock and a Hard Place

Start Date: February 27, 2011

End Date: March 19, 2011
Groups involved: House Drakonan
Awards: Medals: (Cr-1E) for 1st place, (Cr-1T) for 2nd place, (Cr-1Q) for third place.
Being Quaestor I get to do things others might consider...over the top. I mean what's the benefit of being a powerful and fearsome dark jedi if I don't indulge my every whim at the expense of those below me in the chain of command? Case in point we've moved the Swift Fury into a backwater system and in order to get the best view of the sun through my office view port I need some asteroids cleared out of the way.

So your job is to get in a little utility tug with a single laser and get out there and clear my view!

To play: You have three weeks to play the classic "Asteroids” game located in the Quaestor's Arcade on the House Drakonan website: https://sites.google.com/site/housedrakonan/quaestor-s-office/quaestor-s-arcade

You can play until you're satisfied you've got the highest score you can, then take a screenshot of your achievement and send it to: ascottcampbell7@aol.com. The top three scorers each week will get medals and a week away from scrubbing the Swift Fury's decks until I can see myself in them. So hone your old school piloting skills, or grab a bucket and a scrub pad!

The Sword of Drakonan

Start Date: March 1, 2011
End Date: March 31, 2012
Groups involved: House Drakonan
Awards: Medals: For taking the highest level of points in a given month the member will receive a Cr-1A, for taking second a Cr-1S. Additionally, the member that is the overall leader in points for the year at that point becomes “The Sword of Drakonan” a fictional position that entitles them to a special piece of equipment, this can be worked out between myself and the winner. Also this position will serve as the Quaestor’s personal assassin, commando, advisor etc. If the member loses the title the next month they lose the benefits until they can reclaim it.

At the end of the year the title of Sword and the included benefits become permanent even if the member retires or a new Sword is chosen. Also at the end of the year the top three point scores will receive a Gold Nova, Silver Nova, and Bronze Nova respectively.
The idea behind this competition is to allow each of you to compete in a friendly manner to determine who is the most active and accomplished dark jedi in the House. Next to me of course. ;) How it works is there are point values assigned to specific activities and awards. Each time you complete one of these activities, you automatically get the points. Now at the end of each month the points will be tallied and the leader becomes the "Sword of Drakonan. A recognition of your excellence at pursuing the dark side arts and serving House Drakonan. This monthly title comes with a medal and the fictional perks of being my right hand...being. Also we'll work out a fun added bonus for you to claim in any run ons or fiction.

Here's the catch: We're dark jedi. You only hold the title as long as you can keep your fellow Dark Reavers from snatching it away so you better stay on top of the point total or next month I'll have a new Sword assisting me.

Here's how the point breakdown goes:

TIE Fighter/XWA/ etc. – 1 point per mission flown (2 if the member receives a high score)

Multiplayer Gaming (on any official platform) – 1 point per match played (2 if the MP was in an EH sponsored or endorsed match with an outside club)

Message Board posts – 1 point (double posting doesn’t count, the member must wait for a response from another House member, this also includes run ons)

DB Fiction- 1 point per page, an extra point for a submission that wins a competition

Graphics/Videos/Mission, Mod, Map, Level Creation- 1-5 points depending on the size and detail of each (I’ll have to use my discretion here, an extra point for any such submission that is part of an official competition, and an extra 2 for a competition winner)

Coursework-  1 point for successful completion of any course in the EH Academies, 2 points for a Shadow Academy course.

Course Creation- 3 points for creating a course in any EH academy, 2 extra points for creating a Shadow Academy course.

Recruiting- 5 points for each new member recruited that becomes active and stays so for at least a month.

Serving as a BTL- Each week counts as 1 point, the BTL must produce a unit report and be active in at least one other activity listed above and be running 1 unit level or higher competition, 1 extra point earned per activity or competition run by that BTL that has at least 5 members other than them participating)

Trivia and other miscellaneous types of activity/competition- 1 point for participating in each competition or activity cycle.

Now at the end of the year the three top point earners will receive Gold through Bronze Novas for their outstanding achievements. In addition the person who gathers the most points for the year gets to keep their fictional title permanently and any benfits attached to it.

Good luck everyone and let the frenzy begin!

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.

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 
ehtuba@gmail.com .




               There are several new flying competitions active so warm up your engines and grab your flight stick and go get some medals!

Participating in the Crazy Caption Competition is considered activity even if you don’t win you can always think of something witty to get active.

Anyone can go break a few rocks in the Asteroids Flash game at the House Drakonan website and earn medals so no matter your Order you can have some old school gaming fun for a few weeks.

               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.


Final Thoughts

               There was a definite lull in activity this week. I’d like to see everyone get going again and get involved in something. Personally I was off duty due to a debilitating bio weapons attack by the Rebel Scum all week. I’ll be back at it as I recover and will be going full force soon. Sorry about that everyone. We have several good competitions and activities currently, and the writers among us finally have a firm date to use thanks to XO Rapier. I’ve heard from Xantros and he expects DIE to be ready for beta testing in April with full on support shortly after that. I know I promised a run on but as I said, the dastardly Rebels incapacitated me beyond Force healing’s ability to cure. I also got some negative response to the “non canon” nature of the planned run on so I’ll be trying to re tool and launch ASAP. That’s the sort of input that is helpful by the way. Though I’d like to know what you’re interested in before I do the work up and get approval. Until next week, stay active and have fun!

Darkness Defend,
