Consul Kir got promoted to Dark Adept!! Congratulations to Kir, and a big thanks to everyone I asked to help write up the recommendation. Sorry if I didn’t ask you but I had to do this within a week so I picked the people I saw on IRC the most.
Speaking of Kir, he has announced that he is going to announce a new Proconsul in the next few weeks. Of course he’s making us all wait to find out who it is, so expect that in the next little while.
Still plugging Republic Commando… It’s so much fun. I can’t get enough of the ACP Array Gun (basically a shotgun). Nail a guy in the face at close range and it’s a one hit kill. The ACP Array, the DC-17M blaster and the DC-17M Anti-Armor kick ass and switching between any combo of the three works really well. When you get a certain amount of kills it says you’re a menace to the galaxy, after that it says “let you’re anger guide you” which is the longest killing spree I’ve had. Anyways – if you like guns, you like SW and you like MP – buy Republic Commando.
The Novae and Seals have been dished out for the Krath Rite of Supremacy, you shall hear no more about this from me now. Good work to everyone who helped out and earned themselves a Nova or Seal.
Nex and Ben are still working on creating a Taldryan Allegiance team. I know Ziggy wants a training lesson soon so we’ll probably do that sometime during the week. If you wanna come check it out be around on IRC. If you’re interested but don’t have a clue on how to get started email Benevolent.

The SHAFT arrived and people are already rocking out the activity to get the best reward possible. Basically this is an MP Free-For-All. You can play fun matches or matches for other competitions in the DB (yes they must be DB-related) and report your wins to me. Each win gets you a point. Rest of the details can be found here - http://www.taldryan.org/dinaari/competitions.php#current5
The current standings are:
Chaos - 28
Kraval - 60
Duga – 134 (Has been awarded a Crescent w/Topaz and Quartz star, has a SC coming)
Michael - 10
Jive - 4
Kir – 28
Locust - 3
A lot of participation from these guys. Duga seems to be after every medal I’m rewarding and Kraval is making his way towards that Steel Cross. Keep it up guys. Don’t forget to send me an email with your wins so I can add them to my little notepad file.

The Greatest Warrior – The SHW is running another fiction-based competition but this one is more on the lighter side. Basically he chooses the “greatest warrior” of each month and it’s our job to write about that persons goofish exploits. He explains it in better detail here - http://www.darkjedibrotherhood.org/dbjedi/...s.asp?ID=N:2715
- Sounds like fun and the warrior of the month chooses the top three for medals, and receives a DC for taking the jabs.
CoG Jasru is looking to enhance some aspects of the fictional side of the new Royal Guard. To that end he’s started a competition to create a new Guard crest. Check out the info here - http://www.darkjedibrotherhood.org/dbjedi/...s.asp?ID=N:2684

Completed the Promotion Guide to my satisfaction… finally. It took a long time, but we now have a very straight-forward outline of the ranks from Apprentice to Jedi Hunter, as well as the Dark Jedi Trial for those who wish to prove themselves and earn their lightsabers. Check out – Guide: http://www.taldryan.org/dinaari/promo.php
Any questions, suggestions or comments either email me or post on my MB thread regarding the guides. - http://www.darkjedibrotherhood.com/forum/i...hp?showtopic=12
Still working on a Royal Guard competition. I have the basics down and I think it could be pretty cool if we have some real activity/competitors. But alas, my downfall is usually expecting people to be active.
--= News From Abroad =--
The Krath High Priestess, who’s going on 2 years in her position, has announced that she’ll be resigning in April due to real lifetime constraints. It’s sad to see Alanna leave the position since she’s done such a great job with it, but on the plus side she is coming back to active status in Taldryan! So, yay Lannie.
Interested in being the KHP? Probably not, but here’s a link to the application requirements anyways - http://www.darkjedibrotherhood.org/dbjedi/...s.asp?ID=N:2740
- Apps have to be in by March 16th so you may want to hurry.
In SWG news, not sure if anyone cares… but, the DBPA got attacked by some rebel guys, so they gathered a much larger force and went to destroy the rebels base. The people that helped all got Grand Crosses of the Dark Side.
The Jac is back and busy as hell. Though he did manage to mention that he also enjoys RC. He also mentioned the Episode 3 trailer that aired last Thursday night after the OC. It looks very promising and if you haven’t seen it yet, download it ASAP. The amount of amazing saber duels and space battles will make up for any lack of story or continuity in my opinion. It’s also dark as hell. Fits perfectly with the rise of the Sith. May 19, Episode 3 hits theaters.
The SHW is planning on having an Allegiance tournament in the near future. He also plans on promoting it by offering up ships of some kind to the winning Clan. We need to pwn that up too so get into Allegiance.
The Republic Commando Tournament has been pushed back a week due to a lack of server, or the ability to have real dedicated servers yet. They should be working on a patch to address some of the MP server-related issues.

Just a few reminders here: http://www.darkjedibrotherhood.com/forum/i...hp?showforum=38
- The Dinaari Message Board is a good place to post your ideas, suggestions and comments and it’s also another place where we can hang out and have conversations, albeit slightly slower ones, but it would still be nice to see some activity there. If you got any ideas on how to pick up the MB activity, email me. Maybe we can make it a competition or something.
- The Dinaari Website has a lot of useful role-playing and DB information. You should be checking it every once and a while to get the latest news, or to find out what competitions are going on, or to get information on promotions, IRC, etc.
- IRC is the best place to be active and get involved in the DB and Dinaari. Follow that easy step-by-step guide and you’ll be hanging out with us in #Taldryan and #db in no time. If you need help getting online, just let me know and I’ll try to help you.
