Elf Clan is pleased to announce the assignment of two additional Eldars:

Cinnamon Raymaker
Moontan Valeeva

This is the first time in four years new Eldars have been assigned.  With the existence of Elf Clan on two grids now, along with the fact that Elf Clan now consists of a total of 21 sims and growing-- Peter and I felt it appropriate to assign others to help us in our task of managing Elf Clan... and to be able to take over the group if he or I should ever prove unable, for whatever reason.

In assigning these roles, there were things that we were searching for:

* Long-time Elf Clan membership.  Both Moontan and Cinnamon have been members for years.
* Intricate understanding of both Elf Clan and the Elf Clan Charter
* Evidenced long-term loyalty to both group and our foundation document
* Explicit honor and trustworthiness
* Existing evidence of maturity, people skills and reliability
* A level head, common sense and leadership skills
* Balanced humility-- necessary to being both leader and servant to our group

There were other members in our group that evidenced most or even all of these traits, but Moontan and Cinnamon are both established, long-term members who have proved their loyalty to Elf Clan and appreciation for our ways many times over. 

Their position is that same of that of Peter Lioncourt.  They are co-Eldars will all powers, responsibilities, duties and privileges.   They can make decisions within the scope of the Elf Clan Charter.  Beyond the scope of the Charter will require decision of all Eldars, as has long been our way.  Both Cinnamon and Moontan are acquainted with all aspects of this group and then some.  You can come to them with questions and expect an authoritative answer (or at least an "I'll check on that and get back with you" if they don't know... just like Peter and me).

We all know anyone can get hit by a meteor any day of the week.  In case of the disabling or demise of either Peter or myself, or if we simply can no longer handle our duties as Eldars for one reason or another, members may consider both Cinnamon and Moontan able to step in immediately to fill the void, with all authority and privileges.  If something drastic should happen to both Peter and I at the same time (unlikely since we're halfway around the world from one another, but still always a possibility)... then Elf Clan will be able to continue on with hardly a ripple under the experienced guidance of both these new Eldars.  Peter and I have full confidence and trust in both of them.

The duty of Eldar, while entailing leadership and management, is primarily that of "Servant to Elf Clan".  Peter, myself, Moontan and Cinnamon-- we are all here to serve this group.  With four Eldars we will now be able to better care for the needs of our growing community.

I trust our members will provide them the same level of respect and cooperation that you have provided our Eldars and Greeters to date.  Our very best wishes to all members of our group.
