Mission End and Important Changes

Posted on Sat Sep 4th, 2021 @ 1:35am by Captain Jacob Kane

Hi Everyone!

As standard when we finish an in-character mission, I do like to put together a summary such as this one with updates and, of course, the traditional post-mission awards.

Firstly, however, I do have some important sim news to deliver: John/Emu, also known as Commander Taeler Santu, has decided to step down as Athena's XO due to an overwhelming amount of RL things he wants to focus on. It goes without saying that as Athena's longest serving XO I owe a lot to him for his input, guidance, and experience. We're poorer for his loss, but wish him all the best and hope to write with him again one day.

This naturally leaves a gap in both in-character and out-of-character sim leadership, which Kieran has graciously agreed to fill. It was not a decision either of us jumped into without thought and discussion, but we both felt that it was right for the sim to have him assume the role and step-up to fill that space. He's already been doing some of that during my sporadic absences anyway so he's got the chops! Expect to see the in-character implications of all this in the coming weeks.




With that out of the way, just to say another big thank you to everyone for making "By Artemis' Bow" a good bit of fun! I know we meandered a bit here and there, but you all kept going and I'm grateful for that. And we're still winning sim awards left and right so we must be doing all right...

In time-honoured tradition, a few deeply serious and considered awards are to be given:

- The "You can't put me in a box!" award for Lt JG FalenvralLi Zh’kyhrihr for a creative way out of a sticky situation in a cargo container. Hope that headache clears soon...

- The "You don't smell like mud..." award is issued to Lt P'rel for one of the most hilarious posts I've seen in a long time. And she probably deserved to be covered in space cow poop just for being so prickly. ;)

- A "Tell me about your mother" commendation should also go to Lt Commander Savin for taking the opportunity to connect with so many of your crewmates during this last mission. It doesn't matter if we're shooting up pirates - you need to talk to your counsellor!!

- Finally, the "John McClane was probably Betazoid" award goes to Lt Xavier Leiko, who had his true badass moments in this mission. Climbing through vents, beating up bad guys, and saving the day. And he did it without needing to strip to just his vest...




And with that I sign-off for this rather chunky one. Do get in touch with myself or Kieran via Discord if you have any questions, suggestions, or issues. We want to continue making this the best sim in OF and that requires all of us.

See you out there!
