Posted on Mon Oct 11th, 2021 @ 10:14am by Captain Keiben Haistro in General News

So the end of the current mission story is looming and again I am marvelled at the talent we have accumulated on this little community of writers. You are all the dogs bollocks in that regard (For the non UK'er's, its a good thing!!!).

We will have amassed a nice 219 posts for this story from start to end which is only 22 posts shy of our previous one. Again, you are all amazing.

I will complete this current mission but we will still be able to complete the posts we have and they will add to that total. Any new posts, could we please hold them until I give the all clear to post all you lovely lovely people.

Everyone,

The site has been updated to the latest version of Nova to correct a security flaw. It is highly recommended that you change your password.

Thanks!

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening/Night (Depending on geographic location - Delete as applicable)

As of yesterday I closed "Episode 2 - Echoes of the Empire" and I just want to say a huge thank you to all. I personally thoroughly enjoyed writing through that story with you all and I genuinely look forward to our next story which has now gone live as the primary mission on the site. If there were any posts still for Episode 2 and they have vanished please do let me know as they should still be floating around on the site and may just need adjusting in regards to mission title. With luck though the site will just continue as normal or have changed the mission title over already.

With that in mind I just wanted to give you the running tally for mission posts which stood for Episode 2 at a stonking 241 total posts (Don't ask for word count... we ain't in Obsidian fleet any longer and I cannot be fecked to go check!). Over all this exceeded my expectations as did the level of character development from most of you.

Chief Stoun (Ed) will remain on LOA for a time longer and I will check in with him soon.

The next mission, "Episode 3 - Fear Is Fear Itself" is now live, and within the mission brief you will find some basic 'Act Notes' as guidance but if any of you have any questions then please do drop a message to me or find me on Discord.

As for crew evaluations... Because of the recent rebalance of ranks with the move from Obsidian Fleet Commander Holt and myself have decided to hold of on this until the end of Episode 3.

What do we mean by Crew Evaluations?

Essentially promotion. We won't be looking at length of service though as this is not a true reflection of what has been achieved in the game. Instead we will be looking at each character throughout a story, looking at input, creative contributions and a few other area's on the same lines... That said, if one of you believes that a player deserves a promotion then do speak to the command triad as we will take any recommendations on board.

And thats that. Happy Simming all you wonderful people.


» Prologue Ends

Posted on Fri Nov 27th, 2020 @ 11:51pm by Captain Keiben Haistro in General News

Well it was short, it was sweet but it was amazing. Thank you all for the writing that has happened during our prologue mission. Full mission metrics are at the bottom of this new article. We are now officially into our first main line mission. Do not hesitate to contact me, Lieutenant Holt or Doctor D'BrooNi if you need any guidance with our next mission which went live yesterday - "Echoes Of An Empire".

In this new mission we will tackle the sensor data gathered by the USS Merlin in the brief encounter she had with our original attacker. The Admiral will help set us on our course into what I hope will become an engaging series of missions and opportunities to really develop our characters. It will also pit us against the two main enemies that we will face on our simm. Now these said big bad's are still a work in progress so if anyone has any thoughts about them drop a message into the discord channel 'Strategic Operations'. Everyone should have their own input on the creative process on this group of highly talented writers that I look forward to working with on this little ship.

Lets Write People!

Prologue Metrics:
Total word count: 11297
Total Post Count: 22.594 by Obsolete Fleet metrics
Actual post count: 8

Posted on Thu Nov 26th, 2020 @ 4:35pm by Captain Keiben Haistro in General News

Firstly I need to apologise, I should have announced this when his character was actually accepted onto the simm!!!!

That said, I would like to (belatedly) welcome Ensign Junjie Han Mr. on board as our new Chief Science Officer. Things are starting to move forward now and we are just about ready to kick our first full mission off. Once the current few prologue posts are up then we can make a real start. That said, if anyone wishes to start some character development posts you can.

Things to remember with this new mission:
-It is starting a couple weeks after the prologue so Copernicus is repaired.
-Some crew, such as our Chief Science Officer will be new to the ship completely
-Chief Stoun and Ensign Verona still need the formal offer of a post on Copernicus

And those few points are just to start with.

Lets write people. X
