Community Challenge 1: Lines of Communication
In the field, a line of communication is not just for messages, but also supplies. Within the Star Wars costuming and charity community, it’s very important to know what events are going on, to know who’s involved, and to at least have some idea of how or where to find things out. If you’ve already been in contact with your local Mandalorian Clan, this will be a very easy Challenge and that’s a good thing!
Prerequisite: As a Mythosaur (13+) you may create a forum account, however, you still need to work with your parent(s) or guardian to make sure this is okay with them. While doing some of these challenges will certainly be easier with a forum account, it’s not a requirement. You will, however, need to work with someone who does have access. If you do not have permission to create an MMCC forum account, talk with your parent/guardian and find out when you may create one.
Community Challenge 1: Establish Initial Lines of Communication
- Novice Level: Find out what chapter of the Mercs is the closest to where you live. You can use the MMCC main website (http://mandalorianmercs.org/), and click “Our Members” and “Clan Locator.” Optionally, you can contact a Regional Coordinator for the region (or Regional Ver’sol) that includes your location and ask questions via email (main website -> Who We Are -> Staff). Send what you’ve learned to email@example.com.
- Journeyman Level: This is like the Novice Level Challenge except in addition to reaching out to the Regional Coordinator for your region. Find out the name of the closest Alor’ad (Chapter Leader) and (with your Parent/Legal Guardian’s permission of course) reach out and introduce yourself and get a list of all the local officers. If you have MMCC Forum access, you can do this on the Regional or Clan forum (or private message). Send what you’ve learned and a copy of any emails you’ve sent/received to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Expert Level: This is like the Novice & Journeyman Level Challenges except in addition to reaching out to the Regional Coordinator for your region and the closest Alor’ad for your local chapter. Reach out to 2 or more of those officers via email. If you have MMCC Forum access, you can do this on the Regional or Clan forum (or private message). Send what you’ve learned and a copy of any emails you’ve sent/received to email@example.com.
