» Game Reboot

Posted on Sun Aug 9th, 2020 @ 1:31am by Captain Anna Caldwell in Sim Announcement

Hello All!

As I am sure you are all aware we have hit stretch of inactivity and after talking about it with our esteemed XO, it has been decided that a bit of a reboot is in order for the game. While the idea of 3 missions taking us through 10 years was something that few other games had tried and was a novel idea, it didn't pan out.

So, we are going to be flashing forward. Over the next day or so I will close out the current mission with a long-ish recap of how we got back to Federation space and a bit of what came after. Once that is up I will open up an 'interlude' mission where you can post things about what your character has been up to the last 10 years, etc. You can cover family events, promotions, etc. It's time to give you a chance to establish your character in 2399. The general idea is that your character remained assigned to the Hyperion over the last 10 years however if you want to change up your character then that can be done as well, just send a message to the XO or myself. This will last about week before the next mission starts, however, it will remain open for some time if you want to do any character building pre-2399 even when the new mission kicks off.

The next mission is under development and will tie into the overall TF72 storyline that deals with Cardassians.

I do want to apologize to everyone for the lack of activity and movement on the game and that is something that I ensure will not happen again. Along with the jump forward I will be doing quite a bit of work on the website to reflect the jump and re-establish the game rules as some of the overall Bravo Fleet rules have changed.

Finally, as part of this, I would like everyone to go onto Discord and reply to a post I will make shortly in the crew chat section so I can get a headcount of who wants to remain with the game. You can also send a message on Nova if you do not want to use Discord or do not use it.

As always, if you have any questions please just reach out.

Hello All! This is a bit of a longer updates, so please make sure to read the entire thing.

Welcomes & Departures:

As some of you have seen on Discord, we have a new XO! Her character will formally be joining us once we make the move to 2399.

Sadly, Lt. Michael Kennedy will be departing the Hyperion as running his own sim and a soon to be crazy work schedule will be eating up his free time. We wish him well!

Task Force Updates:

As some of you may know, I assumed the position of Task Force Commanding Officer for TF72 last month. This does not change much for us on a sim level, but, TF72 is moving into an all new cannon that revolves around the Cardassian Union. We were going to be heavily involved with the Cardassian’s once we made the move to 2399 but now some of our mission will dabble in the Task Force cannon so I encourage everyone to be a part of the TF72 lounge on the BF Discord and to keep an eye on the TF72 section of the Bravo Fleet Forums, where Task Force fiction will be posted.

Sim Updates:

As many of you are aware, the sim has moved a little slowly the last month or so and I apologize for that. While I don’t expect everyone to be posting 10 posts a month, I do know we want to be moving a bit faster. Keep an eye out for updated mission notes here soon. I also want to talk a bit about the plans moving forward. We had planned to make the jump to 2399 over the course of 3 mission, however, it’s now clear the time it would take to actually get through the 3 missions would take far too long. So, once we wrap up this mission, we will have have 2 ‘interlude’ missions that will last 2 weeks each (so about a month-ish total) to get us to 2399. Keep an eye out for another announcement as we get closer to the end of this mission on details; I hope it will be more enjoyable way to move time forward than just a simple time travel jump.

As always, if you have any questions please just let me know.

We havebeen awarded the Bravo Fleet sim of the month award! Great job everyone and keep up the good work!

Hello All!

A few general updates. The first is that I am now the TFXO for Task Force 72. What does this change for us? Nothing really. My Flag character, Commodore Basmanoff and her ship the Inverness, may show up from time to time since the Hyperion is in 72 and we might dabble a bit more in 72's cannon from time to time, but, overall it does not change much in terms of the next 3 or so missions that will get us up to 2399.

The next is that I have, sadly, had to prune the manifest a little bit. I have removed a few members who had not logged in for over a month. I have not opened up those positions yet just in case they want to come back to us, but, since none of the characters took part in the slipstream JP, we can assume they did not come with us and had been reassigned before we left.

I will be updating the mission notes later today as we move to the back end of the mission. These first few mission were designed to be shorter in nature and we will move though them fairly quickly; in fact mission two will like take all of 2 or so weeks once we start it. This way we get to 2399 pretty quick and play around in that timeline more (Spoiler: Prepare for much fun with Cardassians :P)

Lastly, I will be updating a few things on the website over the next few days so if you see some odd text or chunks of text missing, it's because I am tinkering with it.


» Updated JP

Posted on Wed Apr 29th, 2020 @ 12:58am by Captain Anna Caldwell in General News

Hello All,

I have updated the JP that really kicks the mission off. There is quite a bit, but, once everyone answered their tags we'll only have 1 more update before it'll be ready to post and we'll really get things moving. There are some tags that have slightly specifics notes; this is more for plot than anything. I like to let everyone use their writing skills as they see fit, but, something the plot needs to have certain points hit to move things along.

I'm excited to get things rolling!
