Dark Greetings Everyone,

Quaestor’s Quote(s) of the Week

"Bad bad men. Women too, to be fair. Oh, yes. They make a fine sandwich, also, heh, heh, heh. But don't tell the Jedi Council I said that."

―Jolee Bindo on the Sith


“Tuba, make me a sandwich.”

-Quaestor Montte

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 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

               It was an extremely slow week this week. I myself am being pulled away by real life concerns, though I’m still here if you need me. I check my email at least once a day and try to get on my IM program for at least half an hour or so. I’m going to try and get a few competitions loaded and ready to launch in the next few days. I’ll send out a general email when I do and include them in next week’s report. Trivia continued to do well I saw from my Inbox. To give everyone time to get ‘ready,’ I’ll let you know that I’ll be reinstituting the Monthly topic in April (since I never meant to let it sit idle in the first place).


               As a side note, I’m looking for ways to incorporate Empire at War and its expansion Forces of Corruption into the Dark Brotherhood. Obviously there is the multiplayer aspect, but I’m looking for other ideas as well. I know some of you were members of the now defunct Directorate and fairly interested in this game, so if you have any ideas or advice to share, please send me an email. I’d really like to get something moving with this platform as it is actually an excellent game and we’ve been given the opportunity to utilize it. Personally I love the game though my poor little laptop strains if I turn the graphics above medium and struggles again when I’ve got the galaxy virtually conquered. 


I’ve been using what little gaming time I have to try out the Rise of the Mandalorians mod and if there is one thing I like better than spreading Imperial domination its making silly aruetisse learn their proper place in the galaxy. (i.e. under my beskar plated boots.) So, any ideas or thoughts on how to move forward with this platform are welcome and even requested. Let me know what you would like to do here folks, I think it could be a lot of fun.


Darkness Defend,
