*Garbed in his dark robes, he stands at the front door of his recently constructed pub, nothing comparing to Sturm's in size, for its intention is not to compete with the other proprietor* This small refuge has been established as a brief sanctuary from the formality of the EUDF Home Base. This is not intended to serve as a permanent place of comfort, for the Home Base does warrant socializing, as does Sturm's club. The intention of this establishment is as follows: Valyn's Dozen is a concept of a squadron of twelve pilots endeavoring to prove that military formality isn't required to yield effective results in EUDF campaigns. In spite of what some rumors might be saying, I have not resigned from the EUDF. This is not a campaign to compete against the mentioned organization. In this pub, all are welcome, but I wish to take note of those considering joining my Dozen. I have removed myself from the ranks of the EUDF's Gold Squadron, and though my Dozen has not yet been approved by the Command Staff, I still feel that we have a right to fly with whom we choose...even if that means that we fly as rogues. Currently, my Dozen includes myself, as Dozen Lead, and Fire_Light as Dozen One, who is also serving in Blue Squadron. If you are currently in the service of another squadron but would like to participate in the Dozen, feel free to articulate such a desire here. Other obligations are of no problem to me. I merely wish to see how many people are interested in joining my Dozen. Thus, the invitation extends to pilots of other squadrons (who wish to be involved but not transferred or resign from their current squad) and to cadets. Rank has no meaning to me. I will not assume a superior demeanor over any of my pilots merely because I harbor the title of Commander. All pilots flying alongside me will be treated as equals and as friends. We have a common goal, and I have grown weary of the conflicts I have seen and experienced in the formal milieu of the Home Base. So, step in if you would like to join, or even contact me privately if you wish to remain discreet.
