Decipher Ziron



Return to Team Overview

mmm….Only recently turning fifteen my life hasn’t been that eventful as such.

Birth. Quite simple…. the Decipher you know was born… oh except he was born two months early… Which I was lucky to not get brain damage from?

It's Decipher!

Primary Education. At primary school, nothing too interesting. I did get very good SAT results, the best the school had at that point seen…

Secondary Education. Found this very enjoyable. Enjoyed most lessons, had good friends, generally very nice. At this point I also realised I had a love for water sports. I was very devoted to my kayaking and have excelled to such a level that I am now teaching the younger pupils in my school (capsizing kids in cold water is sadistic but fun).

Recently my school has moved into a hypermodern building with over 2000 PCs and laptops, walls made of glass and brand spanking new facilities. This does help with the work but does help me pursue my interests of computer photo manipulation and editing as well as amateur flash animation.

Also took part in the school's gifted and talented programme, which was when exceptional (yay!) students are gathered out and their potential is nurtured. I found it very enjoyable, especially since the coordinator (also my enterprise teacher) is a member of the British TA as a bomb disposal officer and is very interesting and a very good conversationalist (I can remember talking to him about the cold war giving birth to the Darfur conflict and Al Quadea, as well as the motivations for building the nuclear bomb). In this gifted and talented programme we performed various tasks, such as the hypothetical relocation of Copenhagen (supposedly to improve our problem solving skills) as well as going on character building adventure trips. As well this (and not to sound arrogant/ like I normally do) I unwittingly became a role model for the younger members of TSI (Talented Student Iniative). As such I have a reputation in the younger years of my school, which I am not sure how to react to, though normally I am quite civil towards my minions they can be quite troublesome.

Above I also mention "Enterprise Lesson". I’m afraid this isn’t the theory of Star Trek (sorry Trekkies) but is as "Mr Bomb Disposal Hassell" puts it "Learning to Learn". We develop skills in this lesson that can be used in all of our other subjects, and is something our principal credits to our remarkably improving GCSE grades (5 years ago London Academy was the 5th worst school in Britain, now it is within the top 2%).

In school now I hope to achieve good GCSE grades and move on to do A-Levels in 6th form (preferably Media Studies, English Lit, History, Critical Thinking/Photography).

The Best People Contribution Award 2009
Winning entry:
"The Sanrier Drakus the Longlived"

Decipher took this award with his monstrous “Sanrier Drakus” an entry that vividly and dramatically captured one of the Dream’s most infamous Blood Mages. Decipher has been nominated for this award in previous years, as he has an inspiring gift for effectively depicting unique individuals, and has succeeded most eloquently here. Congratulations, Deci!

The Best Magic Contribution Award 2008
Winning Entry: "The Arcane Art of Blood Magic"

Entries in the category of Magic are mostly Ximaxian spells, so it's always a pleasure to see well thought-through, yet not overly complex other systems that also represent a major factor in a developed Caelerethian culture. Last year Decipher already laid the groundworks with his Sanryu Concept, in 2008 he got to the Arcane Art of Blood Magic in order to introduce it properly into his Marmarran Citystate - which also made it to the site this year, rounding it all up. Thus, for an entry well written and also as a thanks to continuity, it's Decipher again who cashes in on the Best Magic Contribution Award 2008! - Congratulations, Deci!

The Best Magic Contribution Award 2007
Winning Entry: "The Sanryu Concept"

With the "Sanryu Concept" Decipher didn't write a regular spell as is common in the Magic Forum, but constructed the framework for another entry that is still to come - Blood Magic, an arcane art of working magic used by the Marmarrans of Nybelmar. The Sanryu concept proved to be fresh, original and very versatile in its usage, and also was a concept that was thought through and thus believable. All in all: Good reasons to give the Best Magic Contribution Award of 2007 to Beastmaster Deci!

Commitment Badge 2008: Decipher Ziron
Always a reliable Bestiary Moderator, Decipher also got into majorly important works this year as far as Marmarra in Nybelmar was concerned. Several People and Places entries resulted from that, each one better than the last one. Add to that poetry, Herbarium stuff and the Arcane Art of Blood Magic, which brought him the Magic Award 2008, and you get a good idea how a creative and constructively working Santharian member should be.
