Warrior Status and Roster

Postby Madea on Mon Apr 27, 2009 3:31 am

This thread is the Warrior Roster, where all clan members can come and view the current composition and status of every squad. Additionally, posted here will be the current waiting list of new recruits and any other relevant information we can think of. This is a work in progress and will be updated regularly by either Picanet or myself.

If there is something in this thread that you would like to see, please PM either of us and we will take the suggestion into consideration.

I've been taking the information down from the Events Archive comics and the following were assigned squads in the comic:
Sigan squad hen (6?)
Zhangahara squad 4
Delviri squad 2
Kael'thas squad 1
giving each of those 4 squads 6 members rather than 5. What's going on? All except for Sigan were announced in the EA before April 27th.

Oru'kiudo is leader of Squad 3 which is named Chimera
Aya'me is leader of Squad 4 which is named Basilisk

kirio, all squads are once again capped at 5. Warmaster passed that down this past week. Squad "hen" is a joking reference to Tali's holding unit. New guys will remain in Hen until we have enough to form another full squad. Those who were added to raise strength to six were reassigned to Hen. This gives the Warmaster more flexibility. We should have a seventh forming soon, at this rate.

The tables are changing with the times - some of this is pre-organization. We haven't made the changes yet, but the tables are drawn in anticipation of those changes (which should happen soon.) Thanks for the corrections, I've made them on my master file from which I'll update again once we have things finalized.

Yes, but it would have been nice to actually have been informed of this "Squad 'Hen'".
I have been keeping a running status of the Squads (Personnel, and Equipment) for a while on the Clan Resources Tab and that reference caught me for a loop.

A while ago (before Tali started up her training unit) we used to add members to existing Squads so the Squad would train them until we had enough for a new unit. I thought that was what was going on again, when the 5-man unit structure was broken. Glad to see that Tali is taking back all the "chicks(?)" to be trained until they are ready to join a Squad of their own (With the previous training method she just really sat around bored a lot, thinking of new 'evil' training methods. Nothing I haven't seen before really, boot camp and all...).

Really good to see that my unit is back up and running again. I thought we were going to be on LLD (Light Limited Duty) forever at the rate things were going.

================== /EDIT:
BTW do we REALLY need to track ammo? That is a rather micro tracker IMO for a macro game. It really should just be that we have the ammo and not actually track the expenditure of every single arrow, bolt or shot.

================== /EDIT /EDIT:
As a personal recommendation (especially if we are going to move to the 'one weapon type per squad' , at least until we get our own ranged back-up weapon for all squads):
I recommend that Ys'sa be considered as a new Squad Leader.
Reasons:
1) She is and has been one of the Clan's Fighters long since the beginning
2) Her Great Axe is an "odd-man out" weapon at this moment. Since we are looking towards uniformity within Squads, having her own Squad would allow her to not only keep her Great Axe, but also have an entire unit with a similar weapon.

Squad 'hen' has been around for a while Rulishia, we didn't just pull it out of our butts one day for a lark. XD - just the name.
It began as a place that new recruits would just have to hang tight until there were enough people there to form a new squad. It was never anything official and the name was given mostly as a joke. It's the best way to keep things simple and most of the functioning squad units working properly -

and trust me, Tali's been doing plenty - with or without trainees to train.

As long as Kern counts things in the comic; I've put the ammo on the list.
Until Mads get's the table the way he wants it, this is temporary; a placeholder- just like it says at the bottom.

As I said: I know about the training squad. I was one of the people that pushed for its creation...
The name, "Hen", your 'lark', was the only thing that threw me for a loop.

And have you even looked at the table I have made in the Clan Resources > Armory post? It so far is the most detailed (an hopefully up-to-date) status board so far about our troops. The link is right here in case you just don't travel as far as the Resources Thread often.

It's a lot of work that I put into that Thread for it to be just ignored.
(And I apologize for falling behind when my ship goes underway, needs of Navy and all [thankfully I should be up for shore duty orders next year])

The table is, as I said - a placeholder. This board isn't finished yet - it's not even halfway through it's creation. Chances are all these excess posts will need to be deleted so we can finish it later. I would request that all further comments be directed to the warrior board (or sent as a PM to Madea or myself), thank you.

Will we get a correction in the Events Archive?
As I pointed out above those squad assignments were actually announced in the comic. I was surprised myself when the squad sizes were broken and then shrugged when it appeared that the squads were being evenly expanded to 6 each. I update the Census assistants tables based on what appears in the Events Archive because that is the only way to be sure the tables agree with what Kern and Reza are using for the comic. If this isn't straightened out with Kern and Reza there are going to be all kinds of problems with the War Master's actions!

I announced back when we made Squad Six, in the warrior thread, that I was going to stop there and start filling out the squads into specialized groups because, at the time, everyone had different weapon assignments and it looked to be rounded out well; I was planning on just having each squad stack from there and specialize accordingly. The idea back then was to have different branches, eventually, that would fill specific roles in battle.

The past several updates have changed my thinking on the matter, and I announced a short while ago - again, in the warrior thread, that I had come to a moment of clarity and realized that what I was doing was going to be a mess shortly because of the way we handle things and the maximum number of warriors we are likely to get. So I'm going back to the five-man squad principle.

Reorganization involving multiple squads takes an action. Next action, with a new hire, I'm going to have enough for a seventh squad, in which case I am going to draw those errant numbers into their own squad and the problem will be solved; nice, neat groups of five once again. I elected to hold off shuffling people until now because I didn't want to risk losing a whole action just to move one warrior when I was going to do it in two weeks anways.

The only mistake here was that I started a plan that wasn't going to work months ago; we are now back on track with the original squad plan.

Don't worry. The situation is well in-hand. :3

Spread sheet is posted; the Google Docs one is for view by all, but if your web browser has issues with it, we've included a picture version.

Information will be updated regularly, and important notifications in terms of major status changes will be posted here; the purpose of this roster is as a report from the Warmaster to the rest of the clan, so they have a quick, summarized location to see what the current overall climate from the warrior command perspective is.

This thread may be used for status questions, but extraneous commentary will be deleted; Shiir's War Room thread will be used for that purpose.

UPDATES
SEVENTH SQUAD FORMED
Squad Leader: Ys'sa
Squad Members: Delviri, Zhanghara, Sigan and Arull
Placed on restricted duty until equipment becomes available. Congratulations to Ys'sa on the promotion (it's been a long-time coming!)

FIFTH SQUAD PLACED ON ACTIVE DUTY
Last action the blacksmiths completed enough armor to equip Fifth Squad; they are now active and ready to rock!

ASSIGNMENTS FOR THIS WEEK
Tali, First and Fourth: Ambassador Escort to Siksa'santi Fortress
Second and Fifth: Healer Escort
Third, Sixth and Seventh: Ther Patrol and Practice

I've no doubt you will all represent us well! For the Ill'haress! For the Clan!! ÚRRAH!!

The Census has been updated to agree with the spread sheet. Feedback regarding the formatting of the tables for the warriors in the Ranked and Assistants section would be appreciated. ^^;

Formatting for the Ranked and Assistants section looks just fine the way it is; it tracks information I'm not, so it's a good overall reference.
