xx July 2014 recipient of the "Order of Ori'ramikad"
Jul 28, 2014, 11:36 PM by Cajun

It is with great pleasure that I announce the July 2014 recipient of the "Order of Ori'ramikad".

Karlo Navarro/ Makris Brik of Manda'galaar Clan ([Los Angeles/ Upper South]California, USA).

From the nomination:
Makris is the longest standing member of the Manda'galaar clan.  Truth be told, he was part of the clan since it's inception as the "Southern California Clan".  Makris may not hold a clan officer position, however, his involvement and dedication to the clan, and the club, is second to none.  He is a master armor designer and creator, as well as a master weaponsmith.  He has assisted many members not only in designing their armor and weapons, but also in teaching them and showing them how to build their armor and weapons.  Every Armor Party he attends, he takes some time away from his own projects to assist the newer members and pass his knowledge along to them.

At trooping events, Makris embodies the spirit of the Mandalorian Mercs.  He arrives in kit and is ready to troop.  He will troop from the time he arrives until the time he needs to leave.  I have seen him remain in kit from the opening of an event through to the closing of the event, and then come back and do it all over again the next day.  While in kit, Makris is always in character.  He is a Mando of few words and prefers to let his armor and actions speak for him.  He creates an aura of mystique whenever he attends an event.

Personally, Karlo is one of the most patient, caring, and giving individuals I have ever met.  As mentioned earlier, he is always assisting others not by doing for them, but by teaching them and sharing those tricks he has learned over the years.  While he is very much a quiet and "keeps to himself" personality, when he does have something to say the clan listens because it is usually something that has been thought out very well.  Karlo never puts his own accolades over the clans.  He truly sacrifices his time and energy for the betterment of the clan.  He is active in the clan leadership, even though he is not an officer.  He offers his opinions when he feels he must and he supports the clan officers.  Asisde from a small time when personal life kept him away, Karlo has always been a dependable member of the clan.  Always making the time to appear at events.  What truly sets him apart is how he makes every effort to attend those smaller charity events.  The types of events that do not get massive crowds or huge attention.  He is always the first to volunteer to visit an orphanage, or assist a children's charity.

To summarize, Makris Brik (aka Karlo Navarro) has been a pillar of support for the clan from the very beginning, and continues to be an integral part in the growth of not only our clan, but of the Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club in the greater Southern California area.  His giving freely of his time and knowledge to the younger, newer members of the clan is part of the reason we have not only grown, but have begun to earn a reputation for having some above average kits.  In short, Manda'galaar would not be the clan it is today without the involvement of Makris Brik.

Oya Makris Brik!

xx Mercs 'Supanova Pop Culture Expo' Invasion Debriefing

Invasion location: Perth, Western Australia
Date: June 20-22, 2014
Clan(s) Involved: Sandhawk
Mission Objective: To have fun!

Invasion Report:
On a brisk winter's morning (remember, it's winter in the southern hemisphere), the Perth contingent of the Sandhawk Clan marched into the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, ready and eager to take bounties (or hand them out, you be the judge).
They joined their 501st brethren in raising money for the Riding for the Disabled Association charity, in total $2656.70, proving that a blaster in the face is a healthy persuader for encouraging people to give to worthy causes.
Placed alongside the Rebel Legion and Perth's Allied Costumers, lots of people enjoyed the hijinks and general shenanigans caused by the Elegant Mandalorian Tea Society. While the Mandalorians were forced to co-operate by Mara Jade, they did so willingly, because tea and dancing.
A good time was had by all.

xx New Regional Commander of Europe
Jul 22, 2014, 07:50 PM by Cajun

First, the Council would like to thank Niabi for his service as the Regional Commander of Europe. He has become one of the 'faces' of Mercs in Europe. Unfortunately, Niabi felt that he could no longer effectively serve as a Regional Commander while serving as the Conclave Minister. So...

The Council is pleased to announce that Nirob of Jai'galaar Clan (Germany) has become the New Regional Commander of Europe.


Following a very close election, Nirob was elected as the New Regional Commander of Europe. Please join the Council in congratulating Nirob on his new role. We are sure that under Nirob's guidance Europe will continue to grow and prosper more than it ever had.

OYA Nirob!
OYA Europe!

The event was planned and orchestrated without the Sith's knowledge, partly due to Firestorm coming to aid when the call was placed. Despite the rocky history between Mando and Sith, the event proceeded according to plan.. for the most part. The festivities didn't last long, but for those few hours, the galaxy was a little more at peace.
