  3. Server: Ordo ACE Hive Password: green Status: Ad-Hoc - ACE Server - Currently temporary, dedicated server coming soon SixUpdater / PlayWithSix direct sync link: [Coming soon] Mission: ACE OA Domination - Revive / Co-op 30 [2.28] Missions as needed Mods: - ACE - ACE X (US Navy, RU, SM) - ACRE - Robert Hammer weapon packs - ASR Robert Hammer weapon fixes. - Miscellaneous ShackTac enhancements (Littlebird, movement, fire team HUD, bunnyhop and interaction) Why do I need all this? It's a fair question to ask why you'd need all these mods to play with us when Combined Ops is an amazing game within itself? Well the answer is simple, it's better. ACE completely revamps the entirety of ARMA, if you haven't played it, it can have a little bit of a steep learning curve but all the extra features, enhancements and bug fixes make it more then worth it. Moving on, ACRE, an addon to ACE allows a greater level of immersion and co-ordination by adding multiple types of working radio's into the game. Allowing us to step up, fire-team, squad, command, fire support and a multitude of other radio nets as needed, without having to resort to complicated TS channel set ups. Those two mods, ACE and ACRE form the absolute essentials needed to play. Outside of the Robert Hammer weapons packs, and the ASR fixes adds more or less two-hundred new weapons, including M14s ( and their variants), ACRs, AK variants, M60s and the list could go on. SNR adds what is possibly my personal favorite the M109A6 Paladin Self-Propelled Howitzer, which I'll leave to prove it's own worth in game. The final set of mods are a set of minor enhancement mods from the famed ARMA community ShacTac. They add various miscellaneous functions, such as running jumps over walls, extra interaction options and my personal favorite, being able to fire off the side skids of a littlebird. All in all, these mods serve to enhance our game experience. It is possible to play without the ShacTac and RH weapons, however use of either of these features whilst you yourself do no possess the files will result in intense local lag. Six Updater / PlayWithSix Manual Set Up: Six Updater- The end goal for your ACE preset should be for it to look something like this. As these are the bare minimum needed to play on the Ordo ACE server: Breakdown: - For the ACE files, simply search "@ACE" to find all of the files required, however they should already come in a preset with six updater. - ACRE will be the next mod you wish to add. Simply search for @ACRE in the mod filter, right click and add to pre-set. This will add both the ACRE and the JayArma2Lib files. - A similar method can be used to find the Robert Hammer packs, simply searching for "Robert" or "Robert Hammer" in the author tab. The ASR fixes are obtained by typing "@asr" into the mod browser. The same goes for the SNR M109A6 mod, search for @SNR in the mod filter of six. - Finally the ShackTac mods by searching for "@st" in the search, add all of them listed. You are free to add any others that come up, however do note that they may not work as they will not be enable on the server. Note: Don't forget to have the beta patch enabled by ticking the box at the top of six updater, near the centre of the "home" tab. For reference here is a text list of the mods if you need to search for them: @ACE @ACEX @ACEX_RU @ACEX_SM @ACEX_USNavy @ACRE @ASR @asr_rh_hk416_ace @asr_rh_m14_ace @asr_rh_m4_ace @asr_rh_mgs_ace @asr_rh_mk18_ace @asr_rh_pdw_ace @asr_rh_pistol_ace @asr_rh_dmg_ace @CBA_CO @JayArma2Lib @rh_aks @RH_Heli_Sound @RH_HK416 @rh_m14 @RH_M4 @RH_MGS @RH_MK18 @rh_pdw @RH_Pistol @RH_SMG @SNR @st_bunnyhop @st_interact @st_lb_enhance @sthud @stmovement Once you have all these mods enabled on your preset you should be able to join any ACE mission run on the Ordo server.

    For Legacy Sake.

    In the summer of the sixth year of the twenty-first century, the military powers of the world had all but been completely dominated by the highly sophisticated, elite democratic organization known as the Alliance Navy. Through several armed conflicts, the Alliance had secured a strong foundation and a reputation for combat prowess. However, political strife within the upper echelons of the admiralty soon brought about a rapid decay that undermined the achievements made through the bloodshed. A member of the Alliance high command by the name of Shadow Keegan became disillusioned, and, by June of that year, launched into open rebellion. With a collection of his personal followers, Admiral Keegan splintered from the Alliance Navy, founding what was known as “The Alliance Navy II.” Under the claims of wishing to return the Alliance to simpler, less bureaucratic days, Admiral Keegan formed a pack with the land baron Dirk DaSilva. With DaSilva’s assistance, the rebellion became the controlling force behind the territories of Venuma. After a series of costly raids against the Alliance Navy, it became clear to Admiral Keegan that combat alone would not achieve his goals. Under the orders of the admiral, Commander Fladara Eingarme recruited the help of a bureaucrat named Aryte Vesperia from the Valley territories. With his assistance, the Alliance Navy II began aggressive diplomatic functions with organizations abroad, motivating a larger movement in hopes of turning the tide through unifying the many factions that had opposed the Alliance in the past. Ambassador Vesperia’s influence expanded as Admiral Keegan became wary of the possibility of a coup within his own ranks. Whispers of discontent had become prominent, pointing directly to the Alliance Navy II’s second in command—Fladara Eingarme. In July, Shadow Keegan became increasing irate as paranoia set in. Outraged at the idea of his own officer staff may be involved in a plot to overthrow him, Admiral Keegan provided Aryte Vesperia the capability to appoint and dismiss mid-level positions at will. The coup came to a head in late July: with the support of Dirk DaSilva, Commander Eingarme demanded that Keegan be deposed and that she be instated in his place. Fate, however, appeared to frown on the notion. At Keegan’s insistence, Aryte Vesperia made an appearance at the mob rally and stood by to observe the proceedings. In a curious twist before the climatic end, an officer by the name of Ethan Schuman broke from the ranks and proposed that the former ambassador be appointed. Overwhelming support poured in from the many NCO’s appointed by Vesperia. The coup crumbled into pieces. Aryte Vesperia put his retirement plans on hold and accepted the promotion, claiming the status of admiral. Enumerated with the ability to enact change without interruption, the new commander worked feverously to pull the Alliance Navy II away from its founding. Months of policy were destroyed overnight and a nonaggression pact was signed with the Alliance Navy. To complete the transformation, the organization was founded over with a new name: the Venuma Coalition. Expansive reformation swept throughout the ranks, changing all angles of the group. Professional routine became a norm, with the development of quality uniforms, training routines, and a sophisticated air force. Prosperity inspired a sense of despair within the would-be commander. As the infantry division’s lead, Fladara Eingarme quickly became dissatisfied with her unsuccessful coup. With a small band of treasonous assistants, Eingarme broke away and took refuge within the city of Venuma, forming the Advanced Military Logistics Movement (AMLM). Admiral Vesperia condemned the act and deployed his newly formed air force alongside the elite Coalition NOVA team. After a bitter battle, the AMLM surrendered and dissolved. Although Eingarme escaped capture, her followers were summarily rounded up and executed for treason. Confident the situation had been resolved, Aryte Vesperia embarked on a leave of absence to visit family abroad. In Vesperia’s absence, the gravity of the treachery quickly became apparent. Dirk DaSilva, the territory governor of Venuma was persuaded by Fladara Eingarme to evict the Coalition’s officers and support her attempt to seize the organization. Enraged upon hearing of such a betrayal, Admiral Vesperia systematically dismantled the Coalition—proving quite clearly that DaSilva had made a grave error in judgment: support had not wilted, but grown for the deposed commander. On the eve of the Coalition’s demise, the remnants gathered together and adopted a vision far beyond their simple beginnings: imperialism. The Novus Ordo Imperialis was born in the baptism of battle, with the founding and subsequent inhabitation of the Macaroth territories. Free of commercial filth and the grip of false enterprise, the fresh organization was completely self-sustainable. Growth and development quickly repaired any damage done, surpassing even the highest expectations during the Coalition era. Alongside the recently rebuilt Merczateers and the former enemies in the Alliance Navy, a tri-party campaign cut Venuma into pieces over the period of several weeks. Fladara Eingame’s Malibu Defense Force was annihilated, leaving the entirety of the Venuma territory in bankruptcy and ruin. The success of the conflict forged together an unlikely alliance; the big three: the Novus Ordo Imperialis, the Merczateers, and the Alliance Navy. Widely known as the era of the superpowers, the neutrality and mutual bonds provided the opportunity for expansion, but generated a very real sense of boredom. Disagreements between the Alliance Navy and the Novus Ordo Imperialis quickly deteriorated into a spiral back towards conflict. The Alliance Navy asserted their influence, going so far as attempting to create a rift between the Novus Ordo Imperialis and the Merczateers. But their efforts proved to be without gain, as a more pressing concern had taken its toll upon the NOI. Aryte Vesperia, tired with the burdens his unexpected career had bestowed upon him and the unrewarding spectrum of the military community, submitted his resignation and peacefully bowed out of the scene in order to gather himself. In the wake of his stepping down, the remaining high command of the Novus Ordo Imperialis decided to follow suit, closing the doors of the organization on the evening of November 5th, 2006. Passion flickered quickly; ambitions not easily set aside. But a month later, the weaponry development company Titan Industries was founded in the region of Ratin with much of the former military’s staff filling its employee rosters, including Aryte Vesperia as the president. Over the period of the next six months, Titan Industries remained an active addition to the commercial venue, allowing for the development of advanced materials and the time for the former command of the Novus Ordo Imperialis to situate their personal concerns. Meanwhile, a war had broken out between the Merczateers and the Alliance Navy; a war that saw many of the loyalists of Titan conscripting themselves to the aid of the Merczateers, fueled by the desire to defend their historic allies. That desire came to a head in April of 2007, with the enlistment of Aryte Vesperia into the Merczateers. Soon after the full weight of the veteran staff of Titan Industries followed, bolstering the front against the Alliance Navy alongside their longtime friends. Although, the manner of the former Novus Ordo Imperialis members and that of the Merczateers differed widely, causing clashes to the point that they summarily resigned to avoid the degrading of the all-important relations. Fueled by the taste of glory and the rush of combat, droves of former Novus Ordo enlistees sought to see a return to their roots. They sought to see a rebirth. Backed by the technological giant of Titan Industries, steeled by the experience of the veterans of the Novus Ordo Imperialis, and inspired by the promises of glory, the Ordo Imperialis rose to its feet and locked away the deluge of disillusionment. After months of preparation, on November 5th of 2007, the Ordo Imperialis formally declared itself operational and rejoined the forefront of the military community. The valiant Merczateers were handling the conflict abroad against the Alliance with commendable triumph. With the combined forces of the Merczateers and the Ordo Imperialis, combat against the Alliance Navy was nearly always on the offensive perspective. Before the new year could come about, political strife had replaced armed conflict, bringing about the age of the treaty groups. Two fronts had formed: first, the Ascendant Initiative, an organization based about the preservation and upholding of the STABLE (Standards Treatise on Armaments, Behavior and Limited Engagement) treaty. Shortly thereafter, the Iron Symphony was formed, a military alliance based on the belief of fair play through honor and cooperation, not hard-line dictation. At the forefront of the Ascendant Initiative stood the Alliance Navy and various support institutions. The Symphony's peak consisted of the triumvirate between the Ordo Imperialis, the Merczateers, and the Militant Collective. Today, the Iron Symphony continues on, stronger than ever. Unfortunately, the Ascendant Initiative dissolved late into 2008, leaving a myriad of splintered smaller alliances and individual organizations. With faith in our hearts and purpose in our minds, we exist today: steadfast, upright, and prepared to meet any challenge put in our paths.

    15OCT11 - Ordo Weekly Meeting

    ~ORDO IMPERIALIS~ OFFICIAL DOCUMENT **********Weekly Meeting Log********** [18:00] Aryte Vesperia shouts: Meeting start. As a reminder: all questions, comments (etc) are to be held until given the opportunity to speak. When that opportunity is provided, be sure to raise your hands. Failure to do so may result in dismissal from the meeting. [18:00] Aryte Vesperia: Statistics Members: 310 Cadets: 8 Applications New: 10 Accepted:2 Denied: 3 Review:5 Combat Defensive: 98 Offensive: 21 Allied Assist: 0 [18:01] Aryte Vesperia: Diplomatic report: no significant changes to notate. Interactions remain varied across the world. Combat solid, for the most parts. No one significant target has stood out. Diplomacy matters remain calm. Our standing has not modified with anyone during this week. We have, however, recently learned that Myrmidon (the role-play group) does have a region we can assault. They simply need a heads up so they’re able to turn on damage for us. Nice of them! [18:02] Aryte Vesperia: Unit reports this evening? [18:02] Hollowmengitus Yifu raises hand for Terra. [18:03] Aryte Vesperia: Mr. Yifu. [18:03] Hollowmengitus Yifu shouts: COHORS A: > A-I, Invictus: This week has been a slightly more active week in Invictus. Quite a few raids were held and attended, tacos are delicious, and Hollow still sucks (not a big surpise). As always we encourage anyone who has any questions about either what roles we play out or possible intrest in joining Invictus to ask any one in the squad, Shizzerk, or Pr0wer! I'm on a horse. [18:03] Hollowmengitus Yifu shouts: > A-II, Evalidus: Bloody good job ol chaps ! Evalidus still keeps the line nicely manned during nightshifts and provides the defense on these notorious nights. Now we still have one slot open for one nicely mannered guvna here in Royal British Ground Fo... I mean Evalidus so if you are interested, please contact Huttser Ishelwood or Awanken Wasp so we can add you to our tea party list. Carry on ! [18:04] Hollowmengitus Yifu shouts: > A-III, Insidiae: Krow Ames will be stepping down from the A3 lead as soon as a replacement can be found. Several prospects have been spoken to and the process is going smoothly. Otherwise, nothing of interest has happened with this squad. [18:04] Hollowmengitus Yifu shouts: > A-IV, Praescius: Praescius has a new logo. It was designed by Tiri. Thanks you Tiri! :D In addition, we still have more slots, talk to Afevis Sodertelge to apply. [18:04] Hollowmengitus Yifu shouts: > A-V, Saevitas: Rather slow week for Saevitas with several of our members heading onto LOA for a short period, but that is being made up for in recruitment, the following week should be promising for inductees. [18:05] Hollowmengitus Yifu shouts: COHORS B: > Thatguy: Tipical week for Cohors B. I'll be transfering people back and forth between B-I and B-II. If you have been getting at least one raid a week for at least two weeks straight, you will be eligible to move to B-I from B-II. PS, be sure to keep up those raids a week. Looks better for Cohors A ;D Looking forward for another week filled with more transfers and happiness and ponies. Yeah. Ponies. [18:05] Hollowmengitus Yifu shouts: MISC.: Get those PRFs in - nothing bad can happen from them. [18:05] Hollowmengitus Yifu: that's all I got. [18:06] Nikki Aquitaine (nikki4.aquitaine): o/ [18:06] Aryte Vesperia: Thank you. Next? [18:06] Aryte Vesperia: Ms. Aquitaine? [18:06] Nikki Aquitaine (nikki4.aquitaine) shouts: (Ethan wrote this, which is why it sounds like it was wrote by somebody who is trying to be cool.) Hell yeah, grenade launcher! Good week for Astra this week. Activity in both flights is up, and Addison has been doing a fantastic job as Scarlet's XO. Keep up the good work. Tonight, Astra sadly says goodbye to one of our best members. Altus is heading off to killing college to take Terrorist Target Shooting 101. We know he'll be back in a few months, but we're going to miss him in the meantime. Yet, while we're losing Altus, Rykiana will be returning to activity. He's had some heartache, so it'll be good for everyone to have him home. [18:06] Nikki Aquitaine (nikki4.aquitaine) shouts: Now for some great news. The Malice is finished, and will hopefully be in lockers once Aryte learns how to control his new eye lasers. As mentioned before, the Malice will cost 300QP for the initial unlock, but upgrades are also available. I am fully aware how expensive that is, and because I know everyone will want it badly, far more opportunities for QP gain will be available in addition to PRFs. These events will have low QP value, but our goal is to have a lot of them, so that Astra pilots can stock up quickly. The Malice is super badass, so believe me when I say that you want one. (Also, for those of you in Terra who are interested, operators are standing by to assist you in filing your transfer papers.) For those of you who already do have the QP to unlock the Malice, Palaestra has already finished the training and qualification course, so you can get qualified immediately. [18:07] Nikki Aquitaine (nikki4.aquitaine) shouts: Oh. The Covalent mesh SMG is done. <3 Rage Jew. That's all from Astra. [18:07] Nikki Aquitaine (nikki4.aquitaine) shouts: (I don't know why he's called rage jew?) [18:08] Agares Tretiak raises his hand. [18:09] Aryte Vesperia: Thank you. Haha. [18:09] Aryte Vesperia: Mr. Tretiak? [18:10] Agares Tretiak shouts: The Praetorian Guard helped guide and conduct an early test of Monroe today, and we will likely oversee several more in the future, as we continue to prepare for the inevitiable opening. So keep an eye out for any calls for volunteers that might be made! [18:10] Agares Tretiak shouts: For those unaware, Monroe is the soon to be home of the revived 39th Blackwatch, an old time military under mostly new management. The base will be lots of fun! [18:11] Agares Tretiak shouts: Aside from that, activity has been more or less steady, though there's been anoticieable drop in training and Guard specific raids, due to my continued work on Monroe. That is all. [18:12] Aryte Vesperia: Thank you. [18:12] Aryte Vesperia: Any additional reports? [18:12] Drasamax Python raises hand for the IEA. [18:12] Kisho (kishoshima.dragonash) raises hand for Curia [18:12] Aryte Vesperia: Ms. Python. [18:12] Drasamax Python shouts: From myself for The Imperial Education Administration: Schola had some classes this week and got some people graduated. Armatura even less classes than Schola but not nothing. Ludi still quiet but there is currently an Armored Academy sign up, up on the forums. Have quite a bit to mention this week: [18:12] Drasamax Python shouts: Armatura Commandant(Director) position had been filled almost a week ago and announced over the IEA Staff. Congrats to Kaska Czarny our new Armatura Commandant! :] [18:13] Drasamax Python shouts: Schola Board is being remade as a project of mine so updating it will a ton easier for me than depending on someone who isn't ever around and won't share perms. I got the model and design done with Xoza Tyron scripting it for me. More on it here: http://forums.ordoimperialis.com/index.php?/topic/15208-in-progress-schola-board/ [18:13] Drasamax Python shouts: An Armored Academy Sign up is open on the forums currently being run by Afevis Sodertelge. It can be found here: http://forums.ordoimperialis.com/index.php?/topic/15195-ordo-armored-academy-sign-up-open/ [18:13] Drasamax Python shouts: Commandant Zero Itamae and I are brainstorming ideas to make IEA more pro-active. Something we're thinking of is to try to get implemention of IEA items/rewards or even tiered IEA items/rewards that are rewarded for maybe holding so many classes. We got some ideas of what kind of items/rewards we want to try to get for this idea but not enough of them. We could use more item ideas and input is appreciated if you have any item ideas for items/rewards IEA could use. [18:13] Drasamax Python shouts: That is all from the Imperial Education Administration. [18:15] Aryte Vesperia: Thank you. Any final reports this evening? [18:15] Kisho (kishoshima.dragonash) raises hand for curia [18:15] Aryte Vesperia: Mr. Dragonash. [18:15] Kisho (kishoshima.dragonash) shouts: Ty Sir [18:15] Kisho (kishoshima.dragonash): From the Desk of Heather McKay: In an effort to further our Imperator's will to increase the ranks of Ordo, the Officium Curia is looking for two to three new Lictors. What is a lictor, you might ask? What is it that they do within the scope of Curia and the Ordo as a whole? Well, allow us to answer those questions. [18:15] Kisho (kishoshima.dragonash): Lictors are defined as follows: />http://forums.ordoim...866#entry102866 "Members of the Lictor staff are the backbone of Curia operations, functioning as investigators and information gatherers. Lictors are responsible for most of the day to day work within Curia, providing the Consuls with the time to focus on making judgment rulings. Lictor positions do not carry an enumerated military rank, as such any individual not dual enlisted will be classified as [E-0] unranked. Numerically, Lictor staff may be increased or decreased per the will of the Primus Consul. Appointment to the Lictor staff is done per the approval of the Primus Consul." [18:15] Kisho (kishoshima.dragonash): Lictors perform the following: ~Investigations: Primarily of incoming applications directed to Curia, and the applicants. (For this aspect of the role it is essential to form relationships with individuals who have had impact on the applicant's past experiences.) ~information gathering (Again, need to be able to form relationships with various individuals who have encountered the applicant or subject of the information gathering) [18:16] Kisho (kishoshima.dragonash): ~Investigate incidents and applicants to find facts, gather testimony, collect evidence, and compile a comprehensive report in a short period of time (Encouraged strongly to complete assignment within 72 hours of receiving and acknowledgment of the assignment) ~Advising Ordo Imperialis members of proper procedure in filling out a Curia Incident Report (CIR), weapons or uniform modification requests, etc. [18:16] Kisho (kishoshima.dragonash): ~The lictor *may* request that a member comply with the standards of the group, but the role itself does not grant further authority to one's rank. In other words, an E-5 lictor, is simply an E-5. ~In the rare circumstance of a trial, a lictor may be asked to serve as a representative for prosecution or defense during a triumvirate. [18:16] Kisho (kishoshima.dragonash): This list notes a majority of areas that a lictor may be involved in, yet may not be fully developed. The investigative process of applications and incidents tends to present its own challenges at times, so please keep this in mind when considering the role. [18:16] Kisho (kishoshima.dragonash): Requirements: Lictors will be required to meet the following Criteria: ~ You need to be at LEAST E-4 ~Have at LEAST 4 mos in Ordo ~Have a clean record (this means no CiR convictions in the last 12 mos) ~Are not in a command position (negotiable) ~Have a letter of recommendation from your CO/XO explaining why you are an acceptable candidate [18:16] Kisho (kishoshima.dragonash): Application Process: This Thread will be open from 15 to 22 OCT 11, you will list the following information in a Forum IM to Kristian Kit, Heather McKay and Kishoshima Dragonash (if you don't know how, IM Kisho), along with a 200 word essay as to why you feel you would be the ideal candidate for Curia, what you have to offer, and your experience along with your letter of recommendation: Name: Rank: Squad: Merits/Date: Total QP: Schola Graduation Date: Current Curricular/Extra Curricular Activities: [18:16] Kisho (kishoshima.dragonash): Your application will reviewed by the Curia Consuls (the ppl you sent your application to) and a short list will be created. Those who graduate to the short list will be notified via a response to this thread and deliberations within Curia will then begin. Once the deliberation period ends, each of the candidates will be brought to the Curia Office and interviewed by the Curia Staff. The Required Uniform will be the Class A Dress Uniform, without trench (Officer or Enlisted dependent on your rank). After a period of no LONGER than one week a vote will be held and those who are accepted will be notified. The total process will take approximately three weeks (depending on the number of applicants it could be shorter) beginning from the posting of this thread, until the announcements are made. [18:16] Kisho (kishoshima.dragonash): If you have any questions, feel free to contact any of the Curia Consuls, or Achtai Coronet to get a better idea of what the Lictors do day to day. . The ideal candidate would be someone who is professional and able to form relationships with parties that may be hostile towards the Ordo Imperialis. This is a bit of a different approach than Curia has taken in the past, and is one we will implement into the furture. There appears to be a great deal of mystery and misunderstanding about what Curia is and does, we hope that this assists each of you in increasing that understanding. Don't be afraid to approach Curia, don't be afraid to ask questions or seek any of us out.. we're not the boogie man. Ok Arokh is, but only if you're a cadet... and then there's Achtai when she's not had her catnip fix.. but ASIDE from that, we're here to help... we're here to be approachable. As such, Curia will also be holding another "open house" in the very near future to allow all of you to attend and ask questions of us, [18:17] Kisho (kishoshima.dragonash): You can find the application information here: />http://forums.ordoimperialis.com/index.php?/topic/15229-officium-curia-lictor-application/ That is all from Curia sorry for all the spam. [18:19] Aryte Vesperia: Thank you. [18:19] Aryte Vesperia: Good luck to anyone who applies. [18:19] Aryte Vesperia: Any additional reports? [18:19] Markpuff (mark.karlfeldt) raises wing for Moonytawrum. [18:19] Aryte Vesperia: Mr. Karlfeldt. [18:19] Markpuff (mark.karlfeldt): This time, I have taken extra special care to not copypaste strange alien text relating to skeleton friction variables. [18:20] Markpuff (mark.karlfeldt): > Utility HUD, Covalent PDW, Praescius Telepads and the Malice Gunship. Are all done. All. Done. Done. All of them. Aryte has them. All of them. Aryte needs to put them in a box. Yes he does. Then he has to put them in a locker. That's right. Aryte. Is lazy. They're done. He's lazy. Let's all yell at Aryte. Once they're released, I can put the threads into the Completed Projects subforum. Feels good man. > Drasamax and Xoza took up the task of updating and revising the Schola information boards. Props to them. > The Perseco SMG is probably going to become a general-issue A-Cohors thingy, as per Keller's fishy wishes. > Once my classes are over, Nikki and I will begin adjusting the sim. This sim. I won't be building a new sim. That's just silly. But we'll be making this one better. > Today I also ejected a bunch of inactives from Munitorum, most of which haven't logged in since 2010 (!). > What's next? I dunno. Probably the Evalidus SRBM, Phantom interceptor aircraft, and the Techmusket. Jetbike? [18:20] Markpuff (mark.karlfeldt): Also today I skipped a friend's beach party to be here (and do homework). I hope you're happy. [18:20] Markpuff (mark.karlfeldt): That's it. [18:21] Aryte Vesperia: Very good. Thank you. Annnny last reports? [18:22] Aryte Vesperia: All righty, moving on then. Thank you for the thorough reports. [18:23] Aryte Vesperia: Now, tonight’s meeting (my part at least) will be a bit brief. As most of you are aware, I had Lasik surgery on Friday. My eyes are still healing, so it’s difficult for me to look at the screen for long periods of time—that said, you are getting off easy. I do, however, have a couple comments to make before I cut you loose to go raid and pillage (you better). We’ll consider this the last week of Operation Fallout before we begin a new, internal development focused operation. [18:23] Agares Tretiak: (Ron, if you don't lower that weapon, I'll kill you myself) [18:23] Ron Bleac: (I was in mouselook to set my DD.) [18:24] Aryte Vesperia: Over the last several meetings—well, to be frank, over the last several months we’ve made mention of revisions to elements within Ordo. Some are nearing completion, others are just getting started. Whatever the case, they all serve to really embody the progressive movement we have a great affection for. As I have had a few hours to lay around unable to do much else but be blind the last day, I have been mulling over the many propositions on the table and dreamt up other elements of interest. [18:26] Aryte Vesperia: I will not go into great depth as of yet, as I intend to discuss it at length with the officer corps tomorrow to prepare a refined list. However, as of next meeting, I will have a comprehensive outline as to revisions and additions to be made to the Ordo. This includes anything from our reward programs, Schola, to division structure. We’ve had a lot of time to learn and there’s a lot of opportunity to be more innovative, so, we’re going to go for it in the form of a concentrated operation over the next couple months. [18:27] Aryte Vesperia: I know this is kind of like a “teaser trailer,” but hah—I couldn’t go one meeting without /something/ to say. Anything we do will be collaborative and take input: not blind revisions. The goal will be to complete everything prior to the 1st of the year. As is, I consider that quite doable. Ambitious, but doable. So, officers, please be sure you make it to tomorrow’s meeting. Otherwise, I look forward to presenting the list to you all next week. [18:28] Aryte Vesperia: That said, I am cutting you loose. Thank you for keeping things together during my surgery. Very solid raid and defense performance. I am pleased and appreciate you all keepin’ it going. I’ll be around off and on this evening while I chew away at things. Before you run off, Ron has something to add: [18:28] Ron Bleac shouts: Hi. [18:30] Lairex Rai Windlow (lairex.beck) salutes! [18:31] Ron Bleac shouts: I have something pretty important to announce. For years now, we have been threatened by the foul forces of the Warp from beyond our borders, but our nemesis has reared their ugly head again. As you know, Chaos Imperialis, now known as Chaos Haereticus has established a base of operations in the region of Oeland. The foul forces of the Chaos gods and their taint threaten to over-run our settlements, burn our villages and destroy every good thing we have ever known. It is time to stand up against these hellish creatures and put them down for good. Our allies, the Merczateers are mobilizing and there is talk of Alliance Navy involvement as well. I ask you to arm up and be prepared, as we will surely hit them shortly after the meeting. Stand up for what you believe in, protect the Imperium and our homes. Let's go and kick some righteous ass. [18:32] Aryte Vesperia: Thank you, Mr. Bleac. [18:32] Aryte Vesperia: Dismissed. [18:32] Andriste Nesiote salutes crisply. "Heresy grows from idleness." [18:32] Not Naumova (christoph.batra) slautes [18:32] Aryte Vesperia snaps his fist to his chest, presenting a brief salute. [18:32] Havoc (havoc.sparta) salutes "Nee Metuas Nee Optes" [18:32] Tatyana Kiznetsova (kaska.czarny) salutes and speaks. "In peace we make samovary, in war we make samopaly." [18:32] Rook (asara.thursday) salutes. [18:32] BurrSergal (burrwolf.qin) salutes! "For the Glory of the Imperium!" [18:32] Tala Bleac (tala.spingflower) salutes. "Keisarin puolesta. " [18:32] Nikki Aquitaine (nikki4.aquitaine) salutes. [18:32] fatalitywolf Firehawk salutes! [18:32] fatalitywolf Firehawk: Embrace democracy or you will be eradicated! [18:32] Drasamax Python salutes! [18:32] Maverick Garfield salutes. May God lead us to victory. [18:32] Xoza Shadow (xoza.tyron) salutes! [18:32] Reinhardt Stenvaag salutes, barking out proudly "I march for Titan. AND I SHALL KNOW NO FEAR!!!" [18:32] Radryl Allen salutes. [18:32] Teron Gray salutes: "Palma ut Imperator." ~As quoth by my hand on the Fifteenth of October, 2011~ ==End of Log==

    01OCT11 - Ordo Weekly Meeting

    ~ORDO IMPERIALIS~ OFFICIAL DOCUMENT **********Weekly Meeting Log********** [18:00] Aryte Vesperia shouts: Meeting start. As a reminder: all questions, comments (etc) are to be held until given the opportunity to speak. When that opportunity is provided, be sure to raise your hands. Failure to do so may result in dismissal from the meeting. [18:00] Aryte Vesperia: Statistics Members: 310 Cadets: 6 Applications New: 10 Accepted: 2 Denied: 4 Review: 6 Combat Defensive: 113 Offensive: 19 Allied Assist: 0 [18:02] Aryte Vesperia: Diplomatic report this evening: 39th command submitted an apology and wishes us to reconsider our alliance. We will mull upon it, but as of the moment, they are still to be considered neutral. Otherwise, no major changes to note. Activity is steady across the board. As a side note: I have no pre-typed crud this evening, so enjoy me doing this on the fly. Lol. [18:02] Aryte Vesperia: Unit reports this evening? [18:02] Hollowmengitus Yifu raises hand for Terra. [18:02] Aryte Vesperia: Mr. Yifu. [18:02] Hollowmengitus Yifu shouts: COHORS A: > A-I, Invictus: Invictus held a training early this week which turned out pretty well, if by chance maverick didn’t hold his training course yet do expect a notice to be sent out fairly soon about him trying to test trial his shotgun lecture. Next week I would like to see more raids participated in so get raiding! DO ART! [18:03] Hollowmengitus Yifu shouts: > A-II, Evalidus: We welcome our newest member, Dresden to your our squad and we would like to remind that we still have slot open. If you are interested please contact either Huttser Ishelwood or Awanken Wasp. Be quick or be square mates, cheerio ! *pinky up tea sip* [18:03] Hollowmengitus Yifu shouts: > A-III, Insidiae: Absolutely nothing going on here. We are just a group of people who blow shit up. Don't look this way, go about your day. Good Job Ordo. Love, Bracket. [18:04] Hollowmengitus Yifu shouts: > A-IV, Praescius: Greeting all, A-4 been fantastically active throughout this week meeting up the requirements for raids. Balling in doing raids and all such. Tiridates has send the picture to both Keller and Agares thanks for both posting on the forums. Next A-4 Telepads are out, the newest A-4 squad gear thats soon going to be issued. Other then that if you want to join A-4 Please speak to Afevis Sodertelge or Ookamiwulf Lemton [18:05] Hollowmengitus Yifu shouts: > A-V, Saevitas: Standard Week for Saevitas other than a possible forecast for Syrup and butter in the future; It has been a pretty standard week. Next week should see the possibilty of new inductation of members within Saevitas. [18:05] Hollowmengitus Yifu shouts: COHORS B: > Pr0wer: Pretty constant week as following the previous weeks that came, not too much to report this week within the centuries but we do have a couple of statements that are needed to be made. As usual, we want to make sure you have the resources to grow so please feel no bother in coming to any of your COs/XOs or Cohor B command if you have any issues or questions in your career path here. Also please do try to keep active if possible and attend century planned events as it takes plenty of time to devise activities! Finally as usual, attend ART on Sundays because it makes Aryte a happy wolf. [18:05] Hollowmengitus Yifu shouts: MISC.: Ensure to participate in ART, as Pr0wer said, otherwise you'll be speaking an entirely different language in combat later down the road. [18:06] Hollowmengitus Yifu: That's all from me. [18:06] Aryte Vesperia: Thank you. [18:06] Aryte Vesperia: Next? [18:06] Ethan Schuman raises his hand for Astra. [18:06] Aryte Vesperia: Mr. Schuman. [18:07] Ethan Schuman shouts: Our report for this week starts off on a sad note. Rykiana Ferina, second in command of Reapers flight, is going through some very tragic family matters. We wish him well, and hope for his speedy return. Our regular flights have been relatively quiet this week, with a few of our members commited to other more important priorities. In spite of this, Flight Night had a good turn out. Letalis has had a good week this week. Even though Scarlet's video card melted like some crazy woman in her 40s watching Justin Bieber perform, Addison has more than adequately picked up the slack, taking a few raids out as well as hosting some training activities. [18:07] Ethan Schuman shouts: Speaking of training, the massive number of capital ships in the pipes got me thinking the other night about a potential new entrance reform. Current pilots would be unaffected, but the entry reform would require new pilots to first pass orientation training, and then earn basic certification in three "specialty" classes. The classes would be fighters, attackers, and capital ships. Fighters and capital ships are pretty self explanatory. Attackers are one or two crew aircraft designed for air to ground combat. Initial certification for Astra active duty would require basic certification for the Phantom (fighter), Thanatos (attacker), and Liberator (capital). In addition to this, pilots would be required to earn expert certification in at least one path. In the past, Astra has been all about fighter combat, requiring members to be ace pilots before expanding into other areas. With the proliferation of surface to air defenses in Terra, as well as increased allowances for air to ground, I'm of the opinion that w [18:07] Ethan Schuman shouts: e can back off slightly on our currently mandatory fierce fighter training to the extreme that we do, in order to allow people who may not have otherwise been able to pass that standard to enter Astra and specialize in our support roles. All pilots would still be held to very high fighter performance standards, though, so don't think for a second that we'd be slacking off. [18:07] Ethan Schuman shouts: All of this is still in initial discussion, though, so it likely will change. However, the important thing to note is that we're going to be implementing some changes to make Astra a more welcoming environment for new members. Stay tuned for more. [18:07] Ethan Schuman shouts: That's all from Astra for this week. [18:08] Agares Tretiak raises his hand. [18:08] Aryte Vesperia: Thank you. Best wishes to Mr. Ferina. [18:09] Aryte Vesperia: Mr. Tretiak? [18:09] Agares Tretiak shouts: The Praetorian Auxiliary now has an official procedure for being admitted to its ranks. I will be posting it on the forums, under the FAQ in the policy section. The Guard itself has been a bit quiet due to my recent troubles with my video card, but as you can see, I'm back, and we'll be going back to my previous plan of things. That is all for now. [18:10] Aryte Vesperia: Thank you. [18:10] Aryte Vesperia: Any additional reports? [18:10] Drasamax Python raises hand for the IEA. [18:11] Aryte Vesperia: Ms. Python. [18:11] Drasamax Python shouts: From myself for The Imperial Education Administration: Some Schola and Armatura classes held this week. Even I dusted off my books and held some Schola ones. Ludi is still quiet but Ludi Deacon Awanken Wasp is trying to collect NCO-A Magister's availbility times to create some sort of more organized teaching schedule. (Hint hint those who still might have not replied to his notice on it.) Otherwise keep up the teaching! :] [18:11] Drasamax Python shouts: Several new cadets this week in Schola: Nanaki Lordhunter, Gabrielle Kristan, jemima Clowes and Ardarious Resident. Some have been progressing but some are still Phase ones, so Schola Magisters if you can catch them online get this taken care of. There is also a lot of people who still need Armatura classes or Ludi classes that come online almost every day or close to it, so don't forget about them as well. [18:11] Drasamax Python shouts: I recently put this up today, Zero and I are going to be picking out a new Armatura Commandant(Director) out of our current active Armatura Magisters. I went ahead and posted something to explain the role and narrow down our list if Armatura Magisters post that they are interested and simply make life easier on us. It can be found here: http://forums.ordoimperialis.com/index.php?/topic/15076-armatura-armatura-commandantdirector-position-opening/ That is all from the Imperial Education Administration. [18:12] Aryte Vesperia: Thank you. Final call for additional reports this evening. [18:12] Markpuff (mark.karlfeldt) raises wing for Munitorum? (Unless Aryte wanted to talk about development or something.) [18:12] Aryte Vesperia: Go ahead, Mr. Karlfeldt. [18:12] Markpuff (mark.karlfeldt): Hi, I'm Mark Karlfeldt, the current XO (soon to be CO) of Munitorum. From now on I'll be handling development reports during the general meeting to prevent Aryte bungling up over details. [18:13] Markpuff (mark.karlfeldt): > Astra Covalent PDW & Perseco SMG It was decided this week that instead of the Perseco replacing the Magpul PDW, it would instead be the machine pistol Mesh model that Hugo Reitveld graciously provided to us. It is currently just about fully scripted, pending animations and testing. It will be using the new unlockable upgrades system to boost attributes like the magazine capacity, accuracy, and the ability to attach a suppressor. Later these upgrades will be managed by the new vendor, but for now, you'll probably have to ask an officer to manually assign them and deduct QP. (http://forums.ordoimperialis.com/index.php?/topic/15013-in-progress-astra-covelant-pdw/) [18:13] Markpuff (mark.karlfeldt): However, this means that the Perseco needs a new home. As it won't be the replacement for the Magpul, we're looking for another purpose for it to fill. You can view prospective roles and vote on them in the project thread. (http://forums.ordoimperialis.com/index.php?/topic/15012-in-progress-perseco-smg/) [18:13] Markpuff (mark.karlfeldt): > Praescius Telepads Xoza has been hard at work on producing these, and much to my amazement, he has them near completion in a matter of two weeks. You've probably seen them already being used on Titan and the occasional raid - the blue or red glowing disc on the ground which you can click and teleport around. Or, if you're silly and don't use a Mesh viewer, it's a blob. This will probably be released next week for use in Praescius, but this doesn't mean that if you're not in the squad you'll never get your hands on it - if you have 300 QP to burn, and the express consent of the squad CO (in this case, Afevis), you can unlock it. Do note however that it does require either Medium or Heavy authorisation to deploy, or consent of the OIC. Next step, the Saevitas flamethrower! [18:13] Markpuff (mark.karlfeldt): > Malice Gunship/HUD Update Both still going well in their testing phases. Several bugs with the HUD have been identified and squashed by Tsume, and we're probably going to lop off the extraneous portion of the HUD due to complaints about how difficult it is to place it in other locations on the screen. Other than that, steady as she goes captain. [18:13] Markpuff (mark.karlfeldt): > The Munitorum Forum After receiving various questions about how people should go about using the new Munitorum forum, I've realised that I wasn't quite clear on what its' purposes are. I'd like something clear - Don't be afraid to post. Everyone has the right to a say on how development is run, and we welcome all input and suggestions. If you have input on a specific ongoing project, please feel free to post it in the respective project thread. If you have a suggestion for an entirely new project, go ahead and post it in the Suggestions subforum. The worst that could come of it is nothing at all. [18:13] Markpuff (mark.karlfeldt): As for developers, please do try to make the occasional status update post on whatever project you're currently working on. Even if it's "Still in testing, fixed X and Y.", it still lets people know that the project is making progress. [18:14] Markpuff (mark.karlfeldt): Finally, I'm considering forming a union and going on strike for fairer working conditions with less people threatening to do me bodily harm and/or lock me away in dark places. That is all. [18:15] Aryte Vesperia: Thank you. Very thorough. As a note: Munitorum will be handling the weekly "Development" update henceforth. [18:15] Aryte Vesperia: All righty, moving right along. Not a great deal to go over this evening, partly as I barely had time to see how many raids we had, let alone firm up topics. Haha. [18:15] Aryte Vesperia: NEVERTHELESS . . [18:16] Aryte Vesperia: First up: [18:16] Aryte Vesperia: > Reminder on Intentional Friendly Fire [18:17] Aryte Vesperia: Team killing, whether out of jest our malice, is not acceptable under any condition outside of training. This is something you are all quite aware of. So let's stop having, y'know . . "chase X member around with a baton, oops I killed 2 other people while trying to kill him." [18:17] Aryte Vesperia: Or. [18:17] Aryte Vesperia: "I blew myself up with a detpack, but since it was, y'know, inside the base, it took out two other people too." [18:18] Aryte Vesperia: If you want to kill eachother, we have both Chronus and the killhouse to accomodate. Failing that, host a raid or a training. [18:18] Agares Tretiak: (Or NJ) [18:19] Aryte Vesperia: I've been rather lenient on it as of late in the spirt of taking it in jest, but I definitely do not want to see it spiral. It's a base level regulation that must be followed, even if the parties mutually involved intend to play around. Other folks wind up in the cross fire. [18:19] Aryte Vesperia: That said. I won't be permitting leniency on it any further. This is the blanket warning~ [18:20] Aryte Vesperia: Next up . . [18:20] Aryte Vesperia: > Military Expo [18:20] Aryte Vesperia: As a foreword, a big thank you to everyone involved in getting it set up. We hopped into it really last minute and still managed a pretty awesome display. [18:21] Aryte Vesperia: Major kudos-- Nikki, Tsume, Agares. Forgive me if I am forgetting anyone. [18:21] Agares Tretiak: Kristian. [18:21] Aryte Vesperia: Noted. [18:22] Aryte Vesperia: Secondly, I'd encourge everyone to go check out the expo. Especially to support the host, Markulio. He's footing the bill for the sim and purchased it solely for this expo. Very cool of him. [18:22] Aryte Vesperia: Encourage, rather. [18:22] Aryte Vesperia: However, I do warn folks . . it's crawling with trolls and people who generally just don't like us. It was griefed pretty hard core yesterday. So just keep an eye out and avoid entertaining people trying to pick fun at you. [18:23] Aryte Vesperia: Next: [18:23] Aryte Vesperia: > Raid Leadership [18:25] Aryte Vesperia: Two parts to mention. First: someone brought it up to me yesterday that having raid classes would be awesome. And I agree. I used to teach them, but ART has really taken that time away from me. As such, I don't foresee any raid classes starting in the near future. [18:25] Aryte Vesperia: I do invite my accomplished raid leaders to take the task, if they so wish. I'd be happy to help. Otherwise, I do encourage anyone interested in raid leadership to simply give it a shot. [18:26] Aryte Vesperia: The first time is always scary, but you'll quickly get the hang of it. Take a mentor with you--whether that's myself or another raid lead. I'm always willing to lend a hand if time permits. [18:26] Aryte Vesperia: The best training for raid command is to /lead raids/. Class can only teach you so much. Go get your hands dirty. Our policies are structured in a way to protect you, especially if you're a new raid lead. Gaining approval as an NCO ensures you have an officer who can back you up. [18:27] Aryte Vesperia: So, again. Get out there. Have fun. Expend all your options if things get rough. Don't be scared-- although you should aim and strive for victory (call in that officer if things look bad), you won't be flogged if you don't "win." [18:28] Aryte Vesperia: Any questions about that? [18:28] Daeshana Sapeur raises her hand. [18:29] Agares Tretiak raises his hand. [18:29] Aryte Vesperia: Ms. Sapeur? [18:29] Daeshana Sapeur: Does that extend to numerii who wish to try out leading a raid in New Jessie as well? [18:29] Aryte Vesperia: With proper approval, sure. [18:29] Tandem (zerowinged.vasiliev) raises a hand. [18:30] Aryte Vesperia: Mr. Tretiak? [18:30] Agares Tretiak shouts: Don't be afraid to ask other officers about tips, guidance, or oversight. I'm pretty sure many would be willing to assist you, but we can't do so if you don't ask! [18:31] Aryte Vesperia: Definitely. [18:31] Aryte Vesperia: Mr. Vasiliev? [18:31] Tandem (zerowinged.vasiliev) shouts: More of a cooment on Daeshana's question. If you need someone to watch over that, let me know - will be right there if I am available. As Agares said, ask officers to overlook as well. [18:31] Tandem (zerowinged.vasiliev) shouts: comment*, rather. [18:32] Aryte Vesperia: Awesome, thank you. [18:32] Aryte Vesperia: All righty, moving on. [18:33] Aryte Vesperia: > ART Session [18:33] Aryte Vesperia: Thank you to Terra for pimpin' out my ART classes. [18:33] Aryte Vesperia: On another note, a big shout out to the first Tier 3 class graduation last week. We had a strong turn out and a great session. So thank you to everyone who came and participated. [18:34] Aryte Vesperia: As Terra noted: please do participate. ART is becoming the norm, rather than exception. The materials are critical to know, especially if you're seeking membership in an elite unit. Tomorrow at 5:00 will be your next opportunity to participate. So come on out and have fun with us. :] [18:35] Aryte Vesperia: Annnd lastly: [18:35] Aryte Vesperia: > Keynote - Development [18:36] Aryte Vesperia: It is important to take into consideration the situations under which our development group primarily works in. For many, it would likely be a concept that is largely overlooked—our developers are a pretty unsung group of heroes. The intent of this discussion shall be to point out the elements of Munitorum that are not quite apparent. [18:38] Aryte Vesperia: Foremost, we must considering the reality of development: our team works out of the goodness of their heart. Each individual is entirely volunteer and seeks compensation only through group means—quality points, demonstrations of commitment, etc. Each developer donates a great deal of time and effort without receiving a dime of real “pay.” On some occasions, an individual could easily devote over a dozen man hours on a project—spending their own funds on uploads, texture tweaks (etc)—only to find the element in a queue for weeks. [18:38] Aryte Vesperia: Developers are managed relatively loosely by a Munitorum management system, which allocates resources and maintains a basic understanding of quality. On top of that, Munitorum management ensures distribution of work to ensure members aren’t overburdened. [18:39] Aryte Vesperia: To be realistic, Munitorum works on a needs based contract and, for all intensive purposes, answer only to their direct management and the Imperator. As such, it is not a requirement or necessary in any sense for developers to entertain or put up with critique of their work by those outside of that hierarchy. Beta examinations excluded. By that, I mean: every contribution deserves equal respect. If it is accepted for Ordo use, it has passed our base metrics. [18:41] Aryte Vesperia: There is no room to down talk developers or speak ill of their development: without Munitorum’s selflessness, we would be no where close to where we are today. Every developer, no matter their skill, deserves respect and reverence. It is not an easy task to give up your free time to build pretty things without monetary compensation, when, given the commercial market . . . same pretty things could turn a profit. Developers are, in every sense of the matter, some of the most dedicated and devoted people we have. [18:42] Aryte Vesperia: As such, I remind everyone to be grateful for the contributions we receive. Regardless of personal opinion on how something looks or performs, it is still someone’s hard work, donated selflessly to the group. You can, of course, raise concern to the proper channels if concern exists—the proper channels are Munitorum’s CO or XO, or the Imperator. What shouldn’t be occurring, however, is sitting around muttering how “X” could be done “this way” or “this would be better.” It’s demeaning to their intent to assist and undermines their desire to contribute further. [18:42] Aryte Vesperia: In short. Respect our developers, or learn how to do it yourself. Haha. [18:44] Aryte Vesperia: That said. Thank you all for coming this evening and humoring me as I fast type this. It's been a good week. Surprising that our activity has been so high-- but I'm not complaining. Keep up the good work. Let's keep pushing those raid numbers up and keep the momentum high. Promotions will be up tomorrow, per the norm. I'll be around for the majority of the evening, but I need to run off and grab some food here after the meeting. [18:44] Aryte Vesperia: Go beat up the AN or somethin'. [18:44] Aryte Vesperia: As always, thank you for your time. [18:44] Aryte Vesperia: Dismissed! [18:44] Aryte Vesperia snaps his fist to his chest, presenting a brief salute. ~As quoth by my hand on the First of October, 2011~ ==End of Log==

    10SEP11 - Ordo Weekly Meeting

    Note: Loki wanted to grab the log, but couldn't. [18:01] Aryte Vesperia shouts: That said. Let's get to it. Meeting start. Please hold all IMs to me and ensure you wait until the opportunity to interject before doing so. Failure to may result in summary execution/removal from the meeting. [18:02] Aryte Vesperia: > Statistics Statistics Members: 315 Cadets: 4 Applications New: 10 Accepted: 0 Denied: 2 Review: 8 <--- Combat Defensive: 97 Offensive: 21 Allied Assist: 0 [18:02] Aryte Vesperia: Diplomatic notes this week: all’s quiet on the western front. No major changes to be noted. Combat and activity remains at a steady pace. As Tactica will detail, there have been a couple additional groups to the world. This week, we did interact with one—Tyr. Thus far, the group appears to be an entertaining venue to battle. Mr. Huszar of the Merczateers indicates their region is open now and they still have interest in pursuing friendly combat with us. We will definitely continue on this avenue once I mend my computer situation. On that note, I broke my primary computer yesterday. It should be mended shortly—no change in activity on my part, as I have a back-up that I can use to remain connected. [18:03] Aryte Vesperia: Unit reports this evening? [18:03] Kiwi Foxtrot (eriksson.foxtrot) raises his hand for Terra. [18:03] Aryte Vesperia: Mr. Foxtrot. [18:03] Kiwi Foxtrot (eriksson.foxtrot) shouts: From Pr0wer for Invictus: "Invictus had a pretty standard week for the most part, slight drop in activity (thank you warhammer >:/) and school. With that being said next week should hold more promising with raids and trainings." [18:04] Kiwi Foxtrot (eriksson.foxtrot) shouts: From Awanken for Evalidus: "Activities has rised a little bit even though couple massive games just got released, kudos ! Evalidus would also like to welcome our newest member (coughcoughfngcoughcough) Andriste Nesiote to the team ! We also finally released the first version of our Handbook so kudos to everyone who participated on making it happen ! SWEET ! As always if you have any questions or inquiries about Evalidus, contact either Huttser Ishelwood or Awanken Wasp!" [18:04] Kiwi Foxtrot (eriksson.foxtrot) shouts: From Bracket for Insidiae: "Bracket is back from his week of no internet, we'd like to welcome Mackenzie Macbain to Insidiae! She loves to blow stuff up, and felt Insidiae was a good home. If you have the same love of blowing things up, please contact Krow Ames or Bracket Crowley! Attempted to make a space marines, reference, but all I could think of was WAAAAAAAAAGH!" [18:05] Kiwi Foxtrot (eriksson.foxtrot) shouts: From Ookami for Praescius: "This Week Praescius been regularly taking parts on raid, New upon equipment wise quote from Agares, Tiridates has completed the Armor concept, but sadly he lost his internet connection so we're still waiting on that. Other then that we have a lot open slots for members to join so just contact Afevis Sodertelge or Ookamiwulf Lemton." [18:05] Kiwi Foxtrot (eriksson.foxtrot) shouts: From Stirn for Saevitas: "This week has been dedicated to preparing for next week which will be dedicated to joint trainings with B-1. YES TSUKI YOU NEED TO DO WORK! Although as always, anyone is welcome to participate, so if you're interested send Stirn Aurotharius or Singularity Phenomena and IM for the dates and times." [18:06] Kiwi Foxtrot (eriksson.foxtrot) shouts: For /Cohors B/ from the almighty Thatguy Andel: "Looks like an average week for Cohors B. Inactives have been moved to Cohors C from B-II. Tsukiyomi has been hosting a few things here and there for B-I; B-I guys, make sure to get your raid in, it's only one raid a week. As you see, I'm back with a new laptop. I'll be here and there getting things done as well as speaking with a few people about Cohors B to see where we need improvement and so forth. Thanks to Pr0wer for keeping things in check while I was gone, and another thanks to the B CO's. I'm glad to say I came back proudly. :]" [18:06] Kiwi Foxtrot (eriksson.foxtrot) shouts: That thusly concludes the Terra report for this week. Thank you! () [18:06] Aryte Vesperia: Thank you. Next? [18:07] Ethan Schuman raises his hand for Astra. [18:07] Aryte Vesperia: Mr. Schuman. [18:07] Ethan Schuman shouts: This week has been quiet, but it's the calm before the storm. As I mentioned last week, the Malice gunship is in progress, and Nikki wants to have a beta out no later than Wednesday. Once the beta is in our hands, Palaestra will begin work on a training and qualification course. At the same time, we'll work on getting approval from New Jessie to use it there, so that when the project is complete, there will be as little time as possible between when the Malice hits the armory and when you guys are terrorizing troops on the ground. Now, for that to happen, you'll need to have the QP stored up to unlock it. On top of the base gunship unlock, the Malice will also a have a few levels of upgrades that you can also unlock for even more ass kicking powah. The only way to get QP is to be active and to participate, so GET ACTIVE AND START SAVING NOW. [18:07] Ethan Schuman shouts: In other development news, after having a bit of an epiphany and a good idea (that I made sure to have verified by a third party to make sure it wasn't just something that SOUNDED like a good idea), the Liberator is receiving a total rescript, with the mods I had made for the original enhanced version going out the window and being reworked to comply with the new flight style. Visibility has always been an issue for Liberator pilots. In order to combat that, and to make flight much smoother, the new Liberator flight engine locks horizontal, so it won't pitch up or down. In addition to this, the Liberator will now fly in third person mode by default, allowing for MUCH greater visibility. The commander of Letalis (Scarlet) seemed pleased with the change. These concepts are something I want to test, as the fleet ships also need flight cores, so I'm using the new Liberator as a test bed to try out new ideas before moving on to them. [18:07] Ethan Schuman shouts: Activity will be picking up this week, as we want to present opportunities for pilots to earn QP for when the Malice goes live. A few infantry raids will be going out, some of those led by Letalis members. We'll also be conducting some larger scale acvitivies in Chronus as we begin to take advantage of it. The purpose of these exercises is to start to revive unit cohesion that has dropped off somewhat over the past few weeks, so people will feel more in tune with each other and be able to work as teams when it comes to deploying both air to ground support and air superiority tactics in the same engagement. Advance notification will be given for the more intensive activities, so keep your eyes open and look to your flight and squadron leaders. [18:08] Ethan Schuman shouts: That's all from Astra this week. [18:08] Aryte Vesperia: Thank you. Additional reports this evening? [18:08] Kyra DeAllura Kitsune (kyra.vixen) raises her paw for Tactica. [18:08] Aryte Vesperia: Ms. Vixen. [18:08] Kyra DeAllura Kitsune (kyra.vixen): Well, we have a new military this week, brought to our attention courtesy of RobWolf Dragovar! Tyr, located in a homestead, appears to be open for battle, and has initially been classified as an E-8 target. Please welcome them in out usual fashion. The Republic of Germany has also seemed to pop back up on the radar. We don't yet have a region for them, but as a heads up, we should have another target Soon®. They've been tentatively slated as an NCO target, per their prior classification. A few reopenings this week. The Merczateers have appeared to have reopened relatively recently. Likewise, CDF has emerged from rebuild, with their new region build looking like a corridor-type-esque build, the path from the spawn to their base being divided into three sections. This concludes this week's relatively quiet Tactica report. [18:09] Drasamax Python raises hand for the IEA. [18:09] Aryte Vesperia: Thank you. Ms. Python? [18:09] Drasamax Python shouts: From myself for The Imperial Education Administration: A few Schola classes held since last week, along with even more Armatura classes held than Schola. As for Ludi some NCO-A classes were held. Schola Director Bracket Crowley is back as well for those of you who may not have noticed. As for Armatura Director Typhon Perun he seems to have vanished for over a week now without any kind of notices on why. So if you have something you usually go to your Armatura Director about please forward it to Vice Commandant Drasamax Python or Commandant Zero Itamae till he shows up again, whenever that will be. [18:10] Drasamax Python shouts: Other things to note in the IEA: We're currently thinking/planning on a project for expanding the IEA to allow custom classes as some kind of filler for downtime in normal IEA teaching activities that will be handled by a new special department in the IEA. However nothing is official yet these are just ideas/plans we want to try when we actually get it sorted out. [18:10] Drasamax Python shouts: A recent special addition to Ludi courses was made. Portuguese Classes which will be run by Radryl Allen. You may have taken one of these before when they were not a formal class but now they are. They will teach you some basics on the language and how to handle speaking to Portuguese hostiles/visitors etc. Very useful as we tend to get a lot of hostiles/visitors that speak the language on a day to day basis. There is currently a sign up posted on the forums for those interested. It can be found here: http://forums.ordoimperialis.com/index.php?/topic/14830-ordo-portuguese-classes-sign-up/ [18:10] Drasamax Python shouts: That is all from the Imperial Education Administration. Note: My Birthday is on September 13. :D I also made those Ordo Digi-grade Combat/Dress boots which I don't think Aryte put in the lockers yet so if they aren't you can IM me if you want them. [18:10] The Astra Bunneh (rykiana.ferina) raises a hand for Chronus Dev team and the I.N.N [18:11] Aryte Vesperia: Thank you kindly. And no, I haven't yet, Drasamax. [18:11] Aryte Vesperia: Mr. Ferina? [18:11] The Astra Bunneh (rykiana.ferina) shouts: Its unusual for me to do weekly meeting reports but I have two for you this week ... ==Chronus== On behalf of the Chronus Development team I am happy to report that full scale development will begin as of tomorrow. Up untill now we have been thrashing out the details with the various departments of Ordo to try and put together a sim plan that benefits all while still giving a great and fun enviroment for training, so I would like to thank everyone who gave comments, suggestions and came up with ideas. We would like to ask however if anyone has any itemns, objects, trinkets or keep sakes on Chronus to please go and pick them up otherwise this time tomorrow you may find it in your lost and found folder, so please be aware of that. The sim may not be accessbable for training for a few days as we get hip deep into construction but dont worry we will try to make it as brief as possible so you guys can get back in and start blowing things up....if you dont blow yourselves up before hand. Astra Palaestra Training [18:11] The Astra Bunneh (rykiana.ferina) shouts: ...and hopefully in a few days once we get the rezzer there "Armatura" will still be able to be done on Chronus. That is all from the Chronus Dev team.....for now ....except for some complamentary music http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CZnYzD-LnSU ==INN/OrdoCast== As we all know tomorrow is the 10th anniversary of 9/11, It would be appreciated if some volunteers could write some words of rememberance that will be read out before the start of the Ordocast. Please no stupid or derogatory comments cause they wont get read and i will rage face at you. Its a serious matter so please stay serious about it. Also we will have aryte on the show so any question you may havefor him send them to me on a notecard. That is all from the I.N.N/ Ordocast Team [18:12] Friendly Neighborhood Curia Guy (kishoshima.dragonash) raises hand for Curia [18:12] Aryte Vesperia: Thank you, Mr. Ferina. [18:12] Aryte Vesperia: Holy crap. Everyone's got a report tonight. Haha. Mr. Dragonash? [18:13] Friendly Neighborhood Curia Guy (kishoshima.dragonash) shouts: LOL Thank you Sir From Curia. Added Afevis to the roster, so now we have a new slav.. I mean guy to help us out. Thanks for comin aboard Afevis.. Id also like to make note that Genesis Ronmark is back (if you havent noticed) and in the Curia ranks, as is Kith... Glad to have you guys. One last thing and I'll Shaddap, Curia's looking for staff, people serious about applying and genuinely interested drop me a note (IM) in the forums. Thats all I have, now back to your regularly scheduled meeting. [18:14] Aryte Vesperia: Thank you. :] [18:14] Aryte Vesperia: Any additional reports? [18:14] Aryte Vesperia: Excellent. Moving on . . [18:14] Aryte Vesperia: This week’s meeting will be a degree shorter than the norm. I will be foregoing a keynote in order to get back to tinkering with my computer. Otherwise, I just have a couple quick notes. As such, be sure to use this additional time to go get some raid action in! Or I’ll be sad. :( I am speculating ART will still occur at its regular time tomorrow, 5:00. However, there is a possibility it may be postponed or cancelled, pending outcome on my computer. I will give a heads up on the forums by 4:00 if there is any change. [18:15] Aryte Vesperia: As a side note, if I randomly vanish, it's because there's a doomsday storm outside. Lol. [18:15] Aryte Vesperia: First up, development: [18:16] Aryte Vesperia: Disembodied is hammering away at a TI related project; something inspired off the current Warhammer craze. I won't detail it in specifics for the sake of not spoiling it. After which, he will be moving in to handle the squad mods before tasking back to more major building plans. [18:17] Aryte Vesperia: Our fleet vessel has been modified to a classification of a gun cutter, much to Mr. Tretiak's pleasure. This is based upon the fact that. . well, you can make stuff much larger now. Thank you, Mesh. [18:18] Aryte Vesperia: Malice gunship, as Mr. Schuman mentioned, is going quite well. It will be field-able in the not so distant future. Furthermore, Ms. Gregoire has pledged that she has resumed activity on completing the replacement primary combat HUD. [18:18] Aryte Vesperia: Next: [18:18] Aryte Vesperia: > Reminder: Senior NCO Status / Promotion Exams [18:20] Aryte Vesperia: Foremost, I want to remind folks that there are some unwritten mandates for the senior NCO ranks-- well, I suppose they are written, just not under the promotion policy. Please be certain you drop me a list of your current roles/past positions in the Ordo if you're seeking E-6/7 (and are currently an E-5). [18:20] Aryte Vesperia: It's not "required" in totality, but it will certainly help. [18:21] Aryte Vesperia: Additionally, Terra command is looking for folks to receive letters of recommendation for E-7. You'll want to see your respective CO or the command staff (CO/XO/ADJ of Terra) to get one. [18:22] Aryte Vesperia: In other news. Promotion exams. If you're lookin' for additional authority, definitely do not forget to take the minimum promotion examinations. Remember, they /are/ minimums. If you complete them, it's a flag for us to consider you for promotions, not an immediate elevation. [18:23] Aryte Vesperia: The higher that the position you are reaching for, the more competitive it does become. So, certainly get out there and make your presence known. We're looking for proactive senior NCOs and folks in it for the long run. [18:23] Aryte Vesperia: Neeeext: [18:23] Aryte Vesperia: > Organized Game Nights / Space Marine [18:23] Aryte Vesperia: This is all over the forums right now. The calls for a Space Marine chapter has been heard. Haha. [18:24] Aryte Vesperia: For those of you who are Space Marine players, we will definitely organize some semi-routine beat-downs. Color coordination will not be required, haha. [18:24] Aryte Vesperia: But not everyone plays Space Marine . . so we definitely will try to push this effort in to other popular games. Maybe even ARMA2, so Blaze will be happy. [18:25] Aryte Vesperia: HM. Well my lights just flickered but I didn't lose intertubes. [18:25] Aryte Vesperia: That's my que to run away before I fry my other computer, rofl. [18:26] Aryte Vesperia: Okay you guys. Good week. Thank you all for your continued efforts. I will be back this evening, I speculate. I am a little crippled without my primary computer, but, still around. [18:26] Aryte Vesperia: Thank you to all the raid leads. Keep up the good work there. Don't forget to get some scheduled events for folks. [18:27] Aryte Vesperia: Uhh that said. I will set you all free. Dismissed. Promotions up tomorrow. [18:27] Aryte Vesperia: Be good. [18:27] Aryte Vesperia: Eat your wheaties. [18:27] Aryte Vesperia: Dismissed. [18:27] Aryte Vesperia snaps his fist to his chest, presenting a brief salute.
  10. I wrote this document during work, typed it during class, and consulted with numerous veteran officers. Finally, I consulted with Aryte Vesperia, who instructed me to post it here with his blessing. Footnote: Aryte mentioned he'd like me to say this:
