Please join me in congratulating the June 2019 Player and Simulation of the Month recipients!
Player of the Month
Lt. Beryl Hammond, USS Diligent;
For joining our crew and jumping into the story head first, offering creative solutions, and engaging other characters in problem-solving during critical situations.
Lt. Corey Markson, USS Mercury;
I am nominating Eli (Lieutenant Corey Markson) for player of the month. Several people have commented about the excellent post he wrote this month. His nomination is a long time coming. He has always written exceptionally well and he’s been quite enthusiastic about our current mission.
Lt Griffin, USS Pandora;
Lieutenant Griffin had a mammoth task during this mission – both IC and OOC – to piece together the random, untrustworthy clues left by the players and myself. He had to deal with intentional red-herrings, people lying and keeping secrets, and this elusive, unknown Murderer running rampant around Paradise and Pandora. And despite the challenge set, he has risen above and beyond the call of his position and a normal RP writer; he has always done so with grace and the spirit of fun that the mission required. To say that he performed his duties would be an understatement; he has helped to carry this mission successfully through to its narrative conclusion and I hold him in the highest regard for his diligence, patience, and skill. It is easy to be impressed by Griffin for the kind of high-calibre writer that he already is – our previous mission in an alternate universe is testament enough to his talents and carefully crafted sense of character – but as a player, he has outdone himself in the past few months and deserves the highest recognition for his achievements.
Lt. Eleanor Waldorf, Hawkeye Island;
Eleanor Wardolf aka Nate has stepped up to the plate and helped manage Hawkeye Island since the XO’s departure. He continues to produce posts with his character and helps the main storyline along.
Lt. JG. Josh Garrity, Tau Lyrae;
Lieutenant Junior Grade Josh Garrity of Tau Lyrae, is a good writer, and help contributes to the overall story arc. He is very active within the sim, and proves to be a one of the key writers of the sim.
Simulation of the Month
For maintaining a strong website with plenty of content, a solid crew, and creative writing.
My nomination for the Task Force 64 sim of the month goes once again to the U.S.S. Alexandria. They were the second most active sim in the month of June. They’ve been consistently putting out posts over the last few months so their nomination is well deserved.
The Sutherland is a game which has been dedicated to advancing the Task Force canon, and remained active and a fun place to be during a difficult time. I really want to elevate it this month as an example of a truly Bravo Fleet game, with a CO engaged with the organisation, representing his players well, and drawing upon the resources, community, and canon of Bravo Fleet to tell a great story.
I am going to nominate the USS Atlantis this month, I have found their storyline to be quite interesting and a thrill to read, they have offered a good and unique premise for people to join and they keep things moving. It might not be at a super-pace but they move the storyline forward with brilliant writing and with great teamwork and collaboration. The few posts that I did read were all done by multiple members of the simulation and led to some great interactions and story writing from the crew. Their posts are very detailed and provide the reader with a whole lot more than just from point A to point B in the post and the mission, so well done!
USS North Star;
USS North Star, is a solid sim, that continues to impress the task force command staff. Along with other sims, within our task force. Commodore Song is a stable CO that leads a good sim, and has a good player base. I have included comments, from other CO’s within our task force.
CO #1 says, “Excellent writers a very interesting story and lots of activity.”
CO #2 says, “They are as consistent as the North Star itself. Active and fun posts to read.”
CO #3 says, “A sim that continuously does well month after month. The sim has a good crew and they post on a regular basis. “
