    I’m working on my personal log, and I can’t for the life of me remember everything we did. There was the deep something-or-other and the N’tani(N’tari?) escort mission, and what else? It’s all managed to get jumbled. I should start taking notes.

    There were two missions completed yesterday. One was completed by the Lancer crew, infiltrating pirate space to gather intel. The second was the rest of the division, escorting a N’tani combat fleet across Promethean system.

    The Raven lead the N’tani mission. We had to link up with N’tani forces in Promethean III. From there, we escorted them to secto XI, where Cronus gate is located as well as the forward command base. A number of pirates were encountered, along with several Unakalhai ships which were destroyed and prisoners and intel collected. One N’tani cargo fleet was encountered too, and was found to be carrying contraband items. It was directed to a nearby station to be dealt with.

    Other than that, there were several simulations on sector defense (siege mode) as well as deep strike mode.

    I look forward to reading your log entry!

    Notes help. Of course, at the critical moments things are too busy to stop and take notes…

    As time goes by I do find it easier to recall the wider details, but it is very easy to get swamped by the details of your operational duties. I find myself taking more and more notes and screenshots.

    How secure are our personal log entries? There were significant events of a classified nature in the latest shift. Is it acceptable to record them in the centrally stored logs or should they be sequestered in more secure storage for later upload when they are declassified?

    As a CTR officer, I could initially store mine in the restricted department facilities.

    Secure enough to include all the exciting detail. These logs are to get people interested and enjoy reading them, so don’t worry about restricting content (unless.of course you feel this will enhance the log and build up some mystery).

    I have managed to get a program to edit the recordings we make during missions too. All I have used it for so far is to remove the periods of silence (last night I reduced the silence to 4s segments so there was still a pause).

    Eventually, as we get better with radio comms and in game RP (mostly a matter of getting back intk it for me), these could be shared so people can listen in and those writing logs can listen back to them.

    I’m using Audacity and I think I can record all my voice as well as what I hear as separate tracks. I might look at doing mission logs again (basically verbal mission briefs and updates like you’d get at the start of an episode of ST). We used to have a document detailing how to start and end them so we had a formal structure to them.

    We could start audio logs too if people want. They can’t be stored on the website due to file sizes (we’d quickly use all our website space I think) but people could upload them to a youtube account. I am sure we could get some general graphics to overlay with the voice just for a background too and perhaps some background atmosphere noise (engines and such). There are sites on the net for this.

    Anyway,thats a tangent!

    One way or another, we need to re-establish the metric for roleplay that calling ourselves an “RP Community” demands. We definitely need to find and use as many creative outlets as we can find to try and get into that level of immersion required to successfully permit such an environment.

    Also, in the new OOC year, are we in 2238, or still 2237?

    2238

    In order not to leave the wrong impression from the prior post, please note that Xavier indicated that the year will remain 2237 for the foreseeable future because the rp community timeline is set at a particular period in future history. He posted this in another thread.

    On that note – where can I read that future history?

    There are details I am thinking of adding to my log entries and I would prefer to find out if they would contradict canon BEGORE I post them.

    In the meeting agenda we keep the stardate updated every session, and we switched to 38, at least.

    In the Universe section I can’t find much of a timeline, so I’d go with this.

    Note: official year is 2237.

    For the official timeline, refer to the Artemis Game Manual. We are set between the second spiral arm war and the war of the hegemony. The war of the hegemony begins in 2240.
