DONKLEAPS APPOINTED KGB WARLORD JetStar 07/22/21 04:53 PM July 22nd, 2021 - Year 24

DONKLEAPS APPOINTED KGB WARLORD

KGB CONSTITUTION AMENDED


KGB Senator, Supreme Knight, and Crowfall Faction General (G5) Donkleaps has been a huge part of KGB for many generations. Donk is the most hard-core diehard gamers and the best combat group leader I have encountered in my 24 years of leading this organization. With the time and dedication Donk has put into this organization, the time has come for special recognition and that involves changes to the KGB Constitution.

Exercising the powers vested in the High King in Article II, Section 2, Clauses 5 and 7 of the KGB Constitution, I hereby propose the following changes:
Article II Section 1 Clause 7 will reflect the Historic position of KGB Warlord.

When KGB was founded, the position of Warlord was the equivalent of the current 5 Star General position before the faction system. At the time, the guild was essentially a single faction and single-game focus. It is my intention to resurrect the position of Warlord as a constitutionally recognized role in the KGB Executive Branch along with the High King, King, Prime Ministers, and Chiefs Of Staff.

[Linked Image from oracle.the-kgb.com]
Article II, Section 2, Clause 7: The position of (G6) KGB Warlord will report to and consult the (GM10) High King/Queen and (GM5) King/Queen on all aspects of KGB Military Operations serving as KGB National Security Advisor. The KGB Warlord will automatically lead the military in any Federal KGB Faction (A faction where the High King and King serve as faction leadership). The KGB Warlord may also hold Military Officer Rank in a Standard KGB Faction. In that case, the KGB Warlord would report to and serve at the convenience of the (F5) Faction High Chancellor. In order for the Warlord to assume command in a KGB Faction, the Faction High Chancellor must appoint the Warlord to serve. Furthermore, the Warlord must accept the invite from the Faction High Chancellor. The Warlord may still serve in a KGB Faction as a non-military member if not invited by the Faction High Chancellor to lead the military, or if the Warlord declines the offered leadership role. This is the right of every KGB Citizen In this situation, the Warlord would only carry their earned non-military title (Knight, Supreme Knight, etc).

This change was reviewed and ratified by the KGB Senate by unanimous vote

KGB CROWFALL FACTION LEADERSHIP ANNOUNCEMENT JetStar 07/19/21 07:42 PM July 19th, 2021 - Year 24
From Crowfall High Chancellor Syev

KGB CROWFALL FACTION LEADERSHIP ANNOUNCEMENT

[Linked Image from oracle.the-kgb.com]

It is the responsibility of a Faction High Chancellor to scale faction leadership as the faction grows. This is the first step in that direction.

KGB Supreme Knight Tasorin will be serving as Chancellor of the KGB Crowfall faction effective immediately. Supreme Knight Longshanks will be serving as Vice-Chancellor of Logistics and Supreme Knight Donkleaps will head up Crowfall Faction military leadership as 5 Star General

You can find out more about Faction Leadership and Military positions at www.the-kgb.com under the Faction Section and Armed Forces Section.

Please acknowledge these three exceptional individuals. Cheers

KGB WEB INFRASTRUCTURE STATUS JetStar 07/19/21 06:59 PM July 19th, 2021 - Year 24

KGB WEB INFRASTRUCTURE STATUS

[Linked Image from oracle.the-kgb.com]

As we move forward with a general overhaul of the KGB infrastructure, there are ongoing challenges I would like to share.

1. the-kgb.com domain
We are on day 4 of the 5 to 7-day domain transfer from Network Solutions to Bluehost. Once that transfer is complete the transition to SSL (HTTPS) can begin. There will be massive issues to resolve with links to KGB images that will need to change form HTTP to https and other unforeseen issues that will plague us in the weeks to come. I am the only one working on these issues while trying to balance with RL and Crowfall.

2. www.the-kgb.com and Lektor
www-the-kgb.com was build by Chalootz 5 years ago using an open-source tool called Lektor. The Lektor project has since been abandoned and I have been able to get it to install on any platform (PC, MAC, Linux). This means a complete rebuild of the website in the coming weeks. No changes will be able to be made to the current site until that is completed. Stay tuned. I am NOT as skilled as Chalootz and I am sad to say we will lose some of the fantastic theme that Lootz developed. If we have any Web designers among us that are interested in assisting, please let me know.

KGB SAYS GOODBYE TO LOCALLY HOSTED SERVICES JetStar 07/15/21 10:19 PM July 15th, 2021 - Year 24

KGB SAYS GOODBYE TO LOCALLY HOSTED SERVICES

For many years www.the-kgb.com (Primary KGB Site), w3.the-kgb.com (Secondary KGB Site), and ts.the-kgb.com (KGB TeamSpeak) have been hosted at KGB HeadQuarters in Santa Cruz California. The host that runs www.the-kgb.com and w3.the-kgb.com was was set up by Supreme Knight and Oracle Administrator Vydor in 2013. He passed away suddenly in 2020. So it is a bitter sweet time that we bid these services farewell and move to Bluehost hosted services in the cloud.
Our domain is in the process of migrating and the change could happen anytime in the next 5 days. The move will be seamless and will allow HTTPS across the KGB spectrum with oracle.the-kgb.com already migrated and running HTTPS.

Change is a good thing during this general restart and upgrade of KGB after a long period of limited activity. Stay tuned for more positive changes over the coming weeks.

Leadership Changes in KGB Life is Feudal JetStar 04/07/18 06:40 AM Leadership Changes in KGB Life is Feudal

It's a great time to give the game another try!

AS OF APRIL 2ND 2018:

The guild formerly known as Kairos [BEER] has been renamed to The Knights of Glory and Beer [KGB]
• This is the faction's main and official guild, welcome to all knights of good standing in our organization.
• Leadership is currently established as [HC] Tasho/Jaguar [C] Kalbren with [Knight Captain] Doggernaut.
• If you are signing into LiF at least once a week at this time (or have spoken to leadership regarding absences other than disinterest in the game) please contact Jaguar or Kalbren in Teamspeak in order to have any characters you'd like placed in [KGB] kicked from [Pend], invited to [KGB] and then reranked appropriately in [KGB].

The guild formerly known as The Knights of Glory and Beer [KGB] has been renamed to Pendragon [Pend]
• Leadership/Ownership/Direction of this guild will be transferred to [VC] Ltima (Trade/Logistics) at a time she is ready to take over. She will be guild leader of the Pendragon guild and empowered to conduct all Pendragon business as she sees fit so long as it does not in effect conflict with KGB's guidelines or direction in Life is Feudal. If you choose to stay in Pendragon, any and all concerns regarding Pendragon's day to day will go through whatever leadership [VC] Ltima establishes for the northern city.
• [Pend] will likely be deallied from [KGB] and instead set to `Friendly` for game mechanics logistics/trade reasons due to the way war declarations and shared KoS lists for Kingdoms are conducted in Life is Feudal.
• At this time, any traders/crafters, less than weekly players or inactive knights are welcome to stay within the Pendragon [Pend] tag if they wish to live a quieter life in Life is Feudal.
• [Pend] tagged knights will be granted southern permissions on an individual case by case basis as to allow Ltima flexibility with recruitment/invitations to the [Pend] clan.
