xx Mercs 'Supanova Pop Culture Expo' Invasion Debriefing
Jul 23, 2014, 09:25 AM by Kensnaps
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!

Invasion Report:
Talon clan ventured far outside its territory to pay homage to an old friend, who was to be bequeathed as a new Lord of the Sith on his 50th birthday. 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.

xx June 2014 recipient of the "Order of Ori'ramikad"
Jul 15, 2014, 12:11 PM by Cajun
It is with great pleasure that I announce the June 2014 recipient of the "Order of Ori'ramikad".

Timothy Estep/ Otec Kalamu of Veshok Clan (Mississippi/ Louisiana, USA).

From the nomination:
Tim was a huge driving force behind reforming the Veshok Clan earlier this year. Always checking in and giving words of encouragement as the Mississippi/ Louisiana rebuilt thier numbers to become a clan once again. It seemed that new and veteran Mercs in the area turned to him for leadership and guidance during the rebuilding phase and it was of no surprise to this Merc that he was elected as Veshok Clan's 1st Alor'ad since the reform.

This determination and dedication to his fellow Mercs in the Mississippi/ Louisiana area causing the reformation of one of MMCC's disbanded clans is why he is deserving of such an award. 
 

Please join the MMCC Command Council and myself in congratulating Tim on this achievement.

OYA!

exclamation EU canon charcters reclassified as EU Legends canon characters
Jul 10, 2014, 02:52 PM by Cajun

As you will no doubt have heard, Lucasfilm have announced the end of the current Expanded Universe(EU) in order to allow future filming to become spontaneous stories that won't be tied down to audience expectations.

This leaves members who have based their kits on the EU canon material in a bit of a bind as they are representing a brand that no longer works, apart from as a separate future time line.

The Mercs are happy to announce that we will be continuing to support the old EU as a "Legends" time line, all members who fall within this will be a part of the Legends EU CRLs, any member who wishes to use those CRLs are free to do so.  There will be a forum change on the night of Saturday, July 12th reflect these changes.  The Canon Armor board will be folded into the Canon Brigades section, which will also be split into a Legendary Characters section, and a Canon Characters section.  Posts will be moved into the appropriate area, as will CRLs.  With this change, even tho posts are moved into the Brigades area, you are not required to join a Brigade. Thank You

If there are any questions about this change, please contact either Ulrik Kanteer (Personnel Officer) or Rokeim Gekla (Brigadier).
