The Skye Rangers Brigade has a long tradition of service and loyalty to House Steiner through four long and grueling Succession Wars spanning hundreds of years. Once again civil war threatens the Great Houses of the Inner Sphere. Our Mechwarriors have been called home, allies will be chosen, enemies vanquished, and battles fought on distant worlds under far off suns...the Federation of Skye will now decide its destiny...
Welcome to the Home Base of the Skye Rangers, located on the dark and beautiful planet Summer, within the Federation of Skye.
Fellow honored 'Mechwarriors and Citizens of the Skye March:
With the recent promotions of some more Command Staff to Kommandant-General, the thought once again crossed my mind include the Rank of General of the Armies (GEN-A) as an active rank in our command structure in the Skye Rangers.
The subject has come up a couple of times before over the past couple of years, and I had always shot it down for purely lore-related reasoning. However, our Brigade Command staff roster is getting a bit top-heavy with HPT-GENs and KM-GENs and simply put, we need another rank to promote some folks to above KM-GEN, and give us some wiggle room in this roster for future promotions for the up and coming command staffers.
As such, and after a lengthy debate in a command-only email about whether I should just promote myself to Archon (ARCN), I decided that GEN-A makes much more sense, considers the reputation and longevity of our unit in MWO, and that we have been the dominant House Steiner unit pretty much since Beta.
Concurrent with this announcement, Hrunting is hereby promoted to the Rank of General (GEN), as XO of the unit.
Anyone with any questions can feel free to drop me an email or IM.
Skye Command wishes all of you a happy and healthy holiday season. Shore leave for all of the Brigade is approved and begins now!
As is our tradition, the Skye Front Commander has authorized release of "double pay" to all 'Mechwarriors, for all Rank, Patents of Nobility and Medals earned to date. This awards "SR Points" (1 SR Point = 1,000 MW CBills)which can be used esxclusively in the Summer Palace Market.
It is KM-GEN Hrunting's, KM-GEN Cipher's and my distinct honor to announce the promotion of Hercu1 and Alexander Fury to the Rank of Kommandant-General (KM-GEN) and SR Website Admin. Both Command Staffers have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to help out with processing new recruits, welcoming and guiding them.
As such, and since we seem to be gaining some steam with a bunch of new recruits recently, having these fine officers also working as Site Admins helps us out immensely.
Congrats to Hercu1 and Alexander Fury on their promotions and a huge thanks from me for stepping up and helping us out so much over the past couple of years!
I have taken WAY too long to get this info out to the Brigade. the Zipper sent me this a while back and has been working very diligently to update our Mechbay. I however, being busy with RL, have been quite remiss in getting this info out to you all.
The pulldown menu on the website toolbar will most likely morph into a single link right to the Sanglamore 'Mechs & Eqpt forum category since everything is pretty much there...but I wanted to get the updated list out...(see below):
The Zipper The following are the updated Sanglamore War-college , to be used for the Mechbay dropdown. The older ones have new pics...the newer ones are ...well...new.
MWOWC EU-Team: today seems to be the last opportunity to grab em prices for participation in the MWOWC. So in case you CAN attend tonight, it would be appreciated highly! I want at least one EON-component as a hanging cockpit item!
You kids with your newfangled toys! Back in my day, we had to push the AC grenades into the enemy armor by mech-hand! Our cockpits never went below 40° Celsius and our lasers went PEEEWW instead of pewpewpewpewpew!
Also important thing for those who didn't know. After this patch you can now take any mech from mechbay into training grounds with unsaved loadout. Bascially allowing you to try out different builds/skills without spending cbills/xp.
Hey William! Nice to have ye back! Can you invite Gri3f3r and CrashSteel into the academy please so they have a bigger bunch of ppl to play with? Pretty nice folks from what I have seen until now. Thx!
Tonight (EU-Time): Team Bravo does MWOWC18 drops to get the games needed for prices! Show up + participate, so we can spread PGI's blessings between as many Rangers as possible. Check the thread in TacCom-Subforum, contact via PM or show up on TS!
