KE Tomaas Montte - 16
For: Clan Drakonan's
Posted By: D Tomaas Montte
Posted On: March 20, 2011

 

<Bow>

Dark Greetings Everyone,

               It’s time for the weekly report.  

Quaestor’s Quote of the Week

"You have to know the limits of your physical and mental endurance, so you can recognize them and pass beyond them. This is why I will push you beyond any suffering you can imagine. You will not give up and die like lesser men; you will not crack up like lesser men; you will not lose heart in the direst circumstances like lesser men. And you will be the last men standing when the weaklings have opted to do the easy thing and die."

―Sergeant Walon Vau, addressing junior clone trainees on Kamino        

News

o   There were developments in the launch of The Old Republic, details can be found at the main Emperor’s Hammer site. If you’re into MMO gaming I’d certainly take a look.

o   I posted DJK Fenris Uhlahn’s How To Tell entry in the House fiction archive and its well worth reading everyone.

o   Slow news week otherwise. I’ve been derailed by an excessively busy schedule in the real world, but I’m still kicking. I will be semi unavailable the next two weekends. Due to me being away from home at those times I’ll be releasing the next two House Reports on Monday rather than Sunday.

Sword of Drakonan Standings

Wow. Sith Domination.

1.      Dark Jedi Knight Tuba leads the pack with 32 points. Tuba may slip a bit though because he’s off to enjoy sun and sand for two weeks, so pounce upon his weakened state like the darksiders you are.

2.      Novice Kodiak Kerriban is right behind with 29 points. An amazing display of activity from a new member and I’m heartily impressed. That’s 27 points in one week for those paying attention.

3.      Sith Battlemaster Dempsey slips to third with 23 points.

4.      Dark Jedi Knight Fenris Uhlahn comes in fourth with 10 points.

Those are your point leaders, though there are several people with 1 or 2 points. There are several ways to get more activity points, just check the Sword of Drakonan section of the House website for details.

 

Awards

Let me say it again: Wow. Sith Domination.

o   This was the final week of the “Rock and a Hard Place” competition and Novice Kodiak Kereban took first, and a nifty Emerald Crescent for blasting those nasty asteroids out of my view of the sun. Dark Jedi Knight Tuba took an Emerald Star for placing first in last weeks installment of the competition as well. Now I’ll just have to move the ship so I have something else for everyone to do.
o   Dark Jedi Knight Fenris Uhlahn was awarded a Crescent-Diamond Star for winning the Monthly topic competition for February. I hadn’t had the chance to announce this until now unfortunately. Even more unfortunately due to my hectic schedule I completely forgot to launch a new Monthly topic this month. I’ll get right on that for April people.
o   Dark Jedi Knight Tuba received a Dark Cross for his graphical contributions to the House Drakonan site earlier this month and from my recent survey of the site, he may be due another one soon.
o   Just to show that even Mandalorians aren’t completely perfect: I recommended Guardian Rau Aznable for a Dark Cross back in January for his outstanding level of activity that month. I never followed up on it and the recommendation was only recently discovered and approved. So a belated but well deserved congratulations to Guardian Aznable.

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.
Description:
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.

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 
ehtuba@gmail.com .

 

 

Activities

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

               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

               The real world has been monopolizing my time lately but things have been rolling along smoothly here in House Drakonan. I’m glad to see all the recent activity and welcome the fact I’m having to make time to do my paperwork right now, so keep it up. Since my web based Asteroids comp had some interest I’ll be doing another web based gaming contest soon, most likely this week for everyone, look for my email on that once I get all the details squared away. Sword of Drakonan is going well and the Sith are absolutely dominating it. I think some of the standings may change over the next two weeks though with Tuba laying on a beach somewhere. I’d like to take a moment to recognize the amazing mount of activity our newest member Kodiak Kereban has contributed. He’s tearing through courses faster than I’ve ever seen and staying active in the House as well. Well done Kodiak, I expect I’ll be seeing your name quite a bit in the future. I’m pleased overall with the development of the House and hope to see more activity and interaction from everyone.

Darkness Defend,
