Following detailed orders is an important skill for a Mandalorian. There are times that we might get instructions from a client hiring us, or a member of the clan, or even The Mandalore may need to be able to give us detailed instructions. They need to be able to count on us being able to understand them.

Fortunately, we can use the MMCC CRLs to help us train and refine this skill. Additionally, the App Team is always working to keep MMCC Mandalorian costumes in tip-top form or clarify areas of confusion. Because of this, the CRL changes regularly and it’s a great idea to brush up on it from time to time.

Finally, when a Mythosaur turns 18, they have the honor and privilege of going through the same armor Approval process as every other adult member of the MMCC. Now is a good time to start working towards getting your armor kit as good as it can be! To do that, you should know the process for how your armor will be judged.

 

Prerequisite: Get on the Internet and browse to the MMCC Main Website: http://mandalorianmercs.org/. Find the CRL for Modern Armor (Click “Get Involved” -> Then Click “Costume Requirements” -> Then if “Modern” is not already highlighted, select it).

“Modern” is the era that includes Boba and Jango Fett, and the Mandos seen in Star Wars The Clone Wars, and Star Wars Rebels.
