'In The Lap Of The Gods' Comes To An End

Posted on Fri Jan 17, 2014 @ 12:46pm by Captain Garridan Rismore

Good morning everyone!

After six long months, our first mission (but second episode) has come to an end. I was hoping we would have finished this a few months ago but it is what it is. With Bravo Fleet's new time format of 1 in-game year equalling 4 real life years this won't be a problem anymore.

For the observant ones here, you'll see that I have updated the main page of the site to reflect the changes to the story. I've also put up what our next mission is going to be. Episode 3 of our simm will be called 'The Trial Of Garridan Rismore'. Essentially he, and the Jericho crew will need to answer for the deaths of the Paragons. We'll see how they manage to get themselves out of this one. I'm hoping that this mission will be a shorter one. The outcome of this mission will very much set things up for us story-wise for the next while.

With that out of the way, there are a few other things I would like to address.

No Executive Officer
As mentioned to you earlier in the month, Drew unfortunately, is no longer with us. This has put us short an XO. Story-wise it really wouldn't make sense to have an XO just appear out of nowhere so I'm making the call that we're not going to have one for this mission.

I'm going to be up front about this. Once the end of our new mission does come around it is likely that I am going to make Karen (Lt. Oldan) my XO. This isn't to slight anyone here on the simm. I just need to have someone in that position that I know I can trust. I have already been burned twice with that. Not to mention that tactical / security does have the extra hands currently.

I am willing to consider others, but you need to show me in the next several months that I can trust you with this simm. If anyone else is interested in taking up the XO position at the end of this mission, please let me know so that I am at least aware of it. Thank you.

End Of Mission Awards
It's that time! Starting today, you guys will have until January 24th to vote for two awards. You guys are going to want to be voting for the following:

Starfleet Medal Of Valor: Voted on by the crew of the Jericho. No real criteria, just the player which the crew feels excelled during the last mission.

Prentares Ribbon Of Commendation: Voted for by the crew, awarding their favourite post of the mission.

I would appreciate if you all took the time to vote for these two awards. For post of the month, please make sure to vote for each individual who took part in the post (only player characters). I want to make sure everyone gets the credit.

To vote, all you need to do is go to your Control Panel and then on the left hand menu go down to Award Nominations. Then, select the award you want to put a vote in for and select the appropriate candidate. Only I will see all of the nominations and on the 24th I'm going to count up the results and let you guys know who won what.

I also wanted to let you guys know that I've attached a Mission Ribbon to each of your bios for 'In The Lap Of The Gods'. So just go to you bio and then to awards to see the new shiny. Shannon, for some reason you didn't have one for the first mission but that has now been fixed.

Roll Call
As we are about to start a new mission, please let me know if you do not have any interest in continuing on with us here on the Jericho. If I do not get any responses, I'm going to assume that you want to continue. Activity is important for us here and I need everyone to pull their weight so that we can continue making the Jericho awesome.

I think that's all I needed to tell you guys today. I've definitely babbled long enough. Over the course of the day I'll be putting together a couple of joint posts for people so stay tuned for those.

Thank you for your continued simming here! I'm having a blast and I can't wait to begin this new chapter.

J.P. / Commander Garridan Rismore
