A Sentinel Has Arisen!

It was my pleasure to approve Elric's original application, welcoming him into the CotP family.
I have known Elric since he joined the CotP community and been in many of the same chapters with him. His commitment to CotP and those game chapters can not be questioned. He has shown his leadership qualities and passion at every turn.
Elric has impressed both myself and many of the CotP leadership as a person that you can rely on to do what is in the best interest of CotP and its members. He has helped to make CotP what it is today.
It was my pleasure to recommend and be involved in Elric's promotion to Templar.
I wish to personally thank Elric for all that he has accomplished and for the positive impact that he has had on the CotP community as a whole.
I have no doubt that he will continue his climb on the CotP leadership ladder and to be a positive role model for our community.
Thank you my friend, for all that you have done.
Please join me in welcoming our newest CotP Sentinel!  It has been a long journey and you have arrived intact.

A new Templar rises!

Our community has many great leaders who are always willing to step up and take on the challenges of the day. Leaders who are always willing to help others by sharing ideas or experiences, by encouraging and pushing the limits of themselves the people around them and the community as a whole , or by simply being there when needed. Leaders willing to take on the tough or tedious jobs to ensure our Community has what it needs to not only survive but thrive. Any leader in this group from those who have only led a raid in a single chapter to those who have worked hard for years have all changed our Community by giving of themselves to make our Community the Great home it is!
Occasionally a leader comes along whose impact is so amazing and the difference they make on our community so wonderful that we must stop and recognize them for all they do for the rest of us.
Let me be the first to Thank Phyreblade for all the works she does with SWTOR Chapter, The Social Media Dept, The workforce and The Founders week Celebrations team, to name just  a few. Let me also be the first to Congratulate Phyreblade on becoming our newest Templar! Looking forward to seeing all the greatness she will bring to her new role.

A New Guardian Rises From The Ashes

There are four basic characteristics that great leaders possess.
The first trait is a will to lead. Leaders want to lead. And they embrace the opportunity to do so.
Second, great leaders are willing to make the difficult decisions, the tough decisions that no one else wants to make. Great leaders never pass the buck to a future generation. They confront the brutal realities. They meet them head on. They don't ignore them. They address them as best they can. It's a matter of honor.
Third, great leaders believe in something bigger than themselves. People want to follow those serving the greater good. If people see a leader focused on self-interest alone, they will not follow. At least they won't follow as far as they are being asked. They won't go the extra mile.
People search for someone who is willing to look at the bigger picture, to serve a transcendent good. And so, while it runs against the conventional wisdom, great leaders are also the greatest servants. Great leaders lead by serving because they believe in something greater than themselves.
And finally, great leaders have a sense of humility about themselves.  Ironically, those who accomplish the most are often the ones who brag the least.
It is an honor and a privilege to announce that Grim has been promoted to a Guardian.  Grim is a natural fit for the role, given his 9 year history with the guild and his experience in managing several guild chapters over the years as well as providing administrative support.  This experience has honed his focus on the long term picture of doing what is best for the Covenant of the Phoenix community - a focus that will be at the core of the many judgment calls he will make as a Guardian.
Please join me in congratulating Grim and wishing him the best of luck in his new position as a Guardian.

When you find yourself in that position of decision maker, where the decision is required and you have less than all the information you want, you better be ready and willing to make that decision.  Some would say that the risk involved is not worth the potential negativity, loss or pain of failure.  I personally argue that a great failure through action will be remembered much more fondly than the status quo or mediocrity via inaction.  It is this fearlessness in decision making that is necessary to be a leader in this community.
Creating memories worth remembering is what we do here in the Covenant of the Phoenix, and this is one of the great responsibilities we task our leadership with on a daily basis.  Our leaders know that they will make a difference whether they like it or not and that leadership is a gift given not by our administration, but by the CotP membership who enjoy this community and wish to continue toward that eternal goal of good times and great fun.
These ideals are what drives this community as well as what constitutes some of the most important values that we require of our Sentinels, of which certainly includes the one being appointed here and now.
One of the honorable few who never set out to be a leader yet became one through the quality of their actions and the integrity of their intent; our newest Sentinel joined us in the Darkfall chapter in early 2009 and became a leader in the same chapter not long after.  They have clearly understood the mandate from our founders that everybody has a story, and if you do not know the story, you cannot lead effectively.  A multiple chapter leader, workforce member and chapter liaison, they have worked tirelessly at helping create an environment of progress through action, an environment that dares to fail greatly yet manages to achieve so much more. 
It is an honor and a privilege to announce the promotion of an individual who exemplifies the type of leader we desire in CotP. This individual clearly possesses the core leadership characteristics that we look for in a Sentinel.
Vessa, rise and be recognized today as a Sentinel of the Covenant of the Phoenix.

  2. Deciding on if getting a WACOM Cintriq tablet is worth getting or some other tablet for me doing graphic design and 3D sculpting. I just don't know what would be more beneficial for me. If anyone has opinions on this, feel free to chime in. Gohan

  13. Beginner or not beginner? V
  14. @Shr3dWrites I'm hoping too but I'll probably at least get the td in jp while i wait.

  15. MRI today...I hope I do NOT have something wrong with my brain.

  16. So...I am going to need to invest in a good DSLR camera here in the future cause of textures I will need to take pictures of for the video game project. Reason why is DSLR camera's take WAY better pictures than your normal camera for textures. Plus, there are things on it that help stability and shutter that get rid of blurriness and movement in picture taking. Which is bad when taking texture pictures. Anyone know a GOOD brand and price for a DSLR camera? More than likely will be buying it from Newegg. Gohan
  17. Return of Reckoning (Warhammer online!)

    I thought this game was taken offline after a year or two it was online?
  18. Stuff that needs to be said

    Thats what I plan on doing. And I intend to see this through. Good or bad.
  19. Battletech!!!!!!

    OK so my verdict on this game so far: Pros: Gameplay is good. The idea of tactical gameplay has been oriented pretty well. Graphics is good and not too bad at all. The way you can blow off pieces of Mechs and stomp on vehicles is well done. Storyline so far is good. Cons: Yeah this part is hurting it just a bit. Time between moves is TOOO LONG. They need to decrease the time between moves a bit so the rounds are not so Jeepers long. Also there are glitches in between the moves to a point it looks like no one moves or something of that nature. BUGS BUGS BUGS! There are bugs in this game that need to be addressed BADLY. Overall: I think its a pretty good game, however, would I recommend people to get it right now...probably not. It needs a few hotfixes or patches to fix the bugs and singlplayer issues first. 7/10 I give it for the cons it has. Its not in terrible shape but its not in great shape either. Gohan

  21. Return of Reckoning (Warhammer online!)

    I remember dabbling in this game for a bit after DAoC... I remember a dual pistol character for some reason, witch hunter, something like that? I think we even got some decent recruits from that chapter, Xugrel comes to mind, but I could be wrong there too, time plays tricks on the mind
  22. Welcome MirasDelenns

  25. Return of Reckoning (Warhammer online!)

    Whoa that is some old school gaming... The game we hoped would be the successor to Dark Age of Camelot... Not so much, but hey it was a decent game for its time! I may spin it up once I finish off Shadow of Mordor.
