Division News

-Vigilance Starfighter Group -

During the month of October, VSG completed the initial mission of RS Tour 2. Despite a slow start, the final numbers reflect a bit over half of all active pilots reported on the mission which looks promising as the Division prepares to tackle mission 202.

MGN Xtremegene
LGN Phil Darkfire

-Medals Awarded-

Renegade Cup: COM David "Heavy" Pasiechnyk.

Intrepid Cup: LCL Richo.

Top Squadron: Dagger

Vigilance Dagger: Dagger Squadron

-Allegiance Battle Group-

Since the last report, Allegiance has been quite the hive of activity. A rewrite of their GM manual, a revamp of the division merit system and tremendous levels of participation have paired with an expanding playerbase to easily make ABG the most active division in the RS. Soon to be launched ABG changes will include the introduction of Droid based player characters, and the inclusion of new character quirks to increase the range of customization available for players.

New Members-

Allegiance was happy to welcome back both 2LT Fiona Starfall and 2LT Hayata Sykora into their ranks following extended absences.

Patriot Starfighter Group-

An AWOL check has been sent out with a deadline of November 29th. All members MUST reply before this date, or risk being removed from the roster entirely.



The largest news affecting Redemption his month involves the recent announcement of the upcoming MMO Star Wars: The Old Republic. While the launch of this game is quite a ways off, preparations for supporting it are already underway. COM Wes "Giz" Belden has been appointed as the head of this pseudo-unit to ensure a successful launch once the game goes live.

Righteous Indignation- MAJ Kashi Higanota was appointed as RID XO, LCM James "Corsair" Folen was appointed as RID SO
Zealot- Zealot continues to await the start of their part of RS Tour 2. In the meantime, a separate forum has been put into place for the purpose of allowing members a place to display work pertaining to their character that doesn't necessarily take place during the normal Zealot timeline such as origin stories. All RSers are welcome to browse the forum and those interested in joining Zealot sometime in the future might find it to be a beneficial tool to help catch up on the story and the characters to date.      

Word From the FC

Each month this address is put together and sent out with the aim of giving RS members a better idea of what's going on around the organization. One benefit of the SotRS is members get a chance to see a bit about areas they might not otherwise be involved with directly. In order to best serve the needs of the members who read these addresses, I'm asking for your feedback.

What kind of things would you like to see in these monthly NLs? Would you like the chance to contribute an article of your own on a regular or semi regular basis? And most importantly, do you know of a fellow member you feel is overlooked who deserves some recognition?

You might notice the usual recognition section has been left out this month, and that's mostly because of a lack of feedback about the members that deserve it. The people I see day in day out tend to always be the same each month, and while I greatly appreciate their efforts, the spotlight needs to be moved around from time to time.

Your squadmates, your COs, anyone who you feel is excelling at their duties or going above and beyond with what they do each day, whoever that person is if you'd like to see them recognized on a clubwide level, please feel free to either nominate them through the website or contact me and let me know who they are and what they're doing.

These newsletters are written for your benefit, so please take a moment to let me know how to best tailor them to help you.
