    Howdy folks. I have been recently ascended to CO of the project.

    Once we wrap up the interlude for Chapter 3, I will be freezing Ares until we can get more active members on board. If those members who wish to continue on, you can post up character advancement as a log in your respective Log threads While I figure out how best to start the recruitment process.

    If you have any questions, you can kindly DM me here.

    Well, i must admit that this saddens me greatly.

    It's also a decision with which i do not agree.

    In my opinion and experience, the biggest tool in the recruitment process of an rpg like ours IS the progressing rpg itself. Even if that progress is slow and by only a few.

    Considerations for someone considering joining a crew are questions like:

    "If i invest time, effort and get emotionally invested or attached to this, how long will i be able to enjoy being part of this crew, story and experience?"

    "Is it going to shut down within a year, or six months, if the number of crewmembers drops or when the summertime lull is longer and/or thinning the number of active crewmembers so much progress is almost at a stand still?"

    "Or is the story going to keep going, even if it's down to two or three crewmembers and crawling at a snale's pace?"

    "If i have to take a LOA for a while, will it all be gone when i return? Or will i have some reading to do before i write my character's leave of absence has ended and then jump back into the story where things have progressed despite my absence like it has in real life?"

    Potentially interested visiters or browsers that wander into the Ares section are lost to us for sure when the first thing they learn about Ares is "Ares is frozen at the moment"

    Seeing a notice that says the Ares project is frozen will raise the threshold for joining our crew, not lower it.

    Of course i am but one person with a humble opinion. While i felt the need to express that opinion (which i have now fulfilled) i will of course accept, and adhere, to the CO's directions and decisions and support Ares regardless of what the future holds for us, in whatever way our CO thinks is best.

    I wouldn't be happy if being frozen meant that posts we do while its frozen are meaningless and discarded by the time Ares thaws again. I humbly request the Uss Ares to be drydocked for overhaul and refit and the crew being given Leave of Absence until the ship is ready and starts to prepare for departure or something.

    That way our characters can experience things and events which changes them or not in s way that has an effect on them after they return to duty. Lets just agree we cannot write anything that changes other characters or the ship during... eeh.... the coming ice age.

    I'm sorry to have had this need to express my emotions and thoughts on this decision, but i thank you for reading this rant like blathering of mine. I want to emphasize though that regardless of my emotions and thoughts about the decision, i will do what i can and what will be requested of me to support the USS Ares project and our commanding officer! I am standing by, waiting for orders, sir!

    Full disclosure: Me & Welch discussed & agreed that after the Ch. 3 interlude mission, the RP would be frozen. I am just following that course of action while I figure things out.

    As for things advancing, I am thinking of doing a bit of a time jump to about three months to allow the ship to get repaired. In-character posts will still be allowed. If you wish to run a one-off personal mission or story inside the RP overall story, you may do so.

    I realized JUST NOW that A post like this should've bee posted up as the decision was made.

    Any other questions, Please PM me.

    Also....I'm New to being a CO. LOL

    Mentioned User Josh Broughm, if I may, a small bit of advice.

    As a former IRC Simulation RP CO at both the ship level and the fleet level, it's been my experience that a pause turns out to be a double-edged sword. You will work as hard as you can to gain members and interest, however your existing player base may become disillusioned due to the layoff. When we had to do a break in RP, whether for lack of members or a potential emergency causing a leave of absence, we tried to give each member of the RP an assignment. Perhaps a small sabbatical where they get to develop their character in a "going home" RP, or a personal mission to resolve an outstanding character issue (ex. Worf going to Boreth to find Kahless) would be in order.

    I've long since fallen out of the scene, and I may be wrong here. Just consider it my 2 slips of latinum. I've enclosed a strip, so I'm expecting change. Smile

    Best of luck to you, sir.

    I concur! That is a nice idea, and it's certainly "different" than i'm used to.
    But still.....
    Not gonna lie. I'm concerned. The Simm is what i came to the ufp for all those years ago. Such good writers, i'd hate to see it bleed out and die. I'd be crushed.
    Ah well. i guess that's why they pay the brass the big salaries, so guys like me don't have to worry about it.

    Just to chip in here. It has been quiet around Ares (and the UFP in general) in recent months compared to previous years, so it never hurts to stop and take stock of where things are at every now and then. What I see happening here is not Ares getting decommissioned, rather just getting a refit so to speak to drive it forwards into the future when the time comes. She'll be getting a polish, new flooring and the windows cleaned in time for her to head back out.

    That said, the idea above of people continuing the story on the side with a shore leave type approach, characters getting a temporary reassignment or going off by themselves to flesh them out and keep things ticking over? That's an idea which is a very good one until the mission story starts again.

    Mentioned User Josh Broughm, did I mention that I run a community of text-based roleplaying games? If you like, write up some copy (or I can if you like) and shoot it to me here in a PM. I would be more than happy to disseminate it amongst my community.

    Josh Broughm, did I mention that I run a community of text-based roleplaying games? If you like, write up some copy (or I can if you like) and shoot it to me here in a PM. I would be more than happy to disseminate it amongst my community.
    By copy, do you mean a RP post?

    How about... an RP post as the newly appointed CO of the Ares looking to fill out your crew? Either that, or a pitch for members. Let's work together on this. To answer your earlier question, I think you might have rekindled my fire for RP...

    Hey All,

    Just wanted to say that I'm still lurking around, reading the posts, and willing to participate! I do agree that the best way to recruit is to have the RP keep going.

    If I can add a small suggestion to the recruiting pitch? Don't just concentrate on the department head positions and encourage minor characters- relief officers, bartenders, technicians, etc. In the last year, we've seen how time and real life commitments hinder the ability to rp consistently. Some people might not know how much time they can devote to this, and wouldn't think of taking the position of a department head. But if they take a smaller role, they might discover they have more time than they thought and take on a larger role. In any manner, they'll keep things rolling.
