Just a reminder if you still want to simm your all welcome to join my ship, the USS Northstar. I cannot guarantee the ranks will carry through but there are many open positions on my ship. Any questions please feel free to contact me. My email is taraflier@yahoo.com. Rules are simple, my crew asks no one post for their characters, posts should be at least 150 words and all posts need to be numbered. Simple rules. Hope you'll join us, we're getting ready to begin a new mission in a few days.

I'll answer the questions that were asked.

How long has the ship been simming?-The North Star has been simming about four years, three in Quicksilver Fleet before the decision was made to close the fleet. Then we joined Bravo where we have been for the past year.

How many active simmers?-There is a crew of 9 with about six of us who are very active. Real life does at times interfere, the XO is real life Navy so at times he'll be gone. for short periods of time.

Is it typical that no one post for another character on your ship?-Yes None of us have ever posted for another's character, unless we ask them first. I say join us, get to know who we post our characters and if you feel you can do them justice send the simmer a PM requesting permission to write for their character.

Hope this helps and answers any questions.

Sorry to see the HN fold up. Never a good thing when a ship doesn't make it. The captain has been in contact with me. I have a ship in Bravo Fleet that is actively posting. We're currently in Character Development perfect time to join us to anyone that is interested. My rules are very simple, I've talked to my crew and they request no one post for their characters without their permission. I do ask all posts to be numbered, minim of 350 words and that's about it. The link to my ship is http://ussnorthstar.com/. I have plenty of open positions, I cannot guarantee the ranks will carry through but your all welcome to join. Any questions please email me at taraflier@yahoo.com.

Unfortunately I don't think we have enough folks to keep the ship going. I am making the call to shut it down.

I am looking at some other options for those of you who would like to keep writing, and will let you know through this site what they are once I confirm the details.

Thanks and sorry we couldn't keep her afloat.

» Roll Call

Posted on Mon Feb 13th, 2017 @ 10:32am by Captain J'Dem in General News

Hi all,

As you know we have not had a lot of activity in several months. I am able and willing to write, but I cannot carry the SIMM alone. I would rather write in another SIMM than *not* write here, and I don’t have enough bandwidth to divide my attention and, in all honesty, I generally don't like the format of most Simming organizations. As a result, I’m initiating a roll call.

Please be honest when you respond, since I’ll be using this to gauge whether or not I think we can continue. If you can’t post at least once a week, I’d rather you not answer the roll call.

Please respond by Friday 2.17.17 if you’re interested in continuing. Depending on the results, I’ll make an announcement by this weekend about what the plan is.

That is all.
Captain J'Dem
