The Tomar Chronicle-Herald

Volume I, Number 1 - May 8, 2002


Welcome to the very first issue of the Tomar Chronicle-Herald, your newsletter of what is going on with the Tomar simm,  Bravo Fleet and Star Trek, along with other issues as needed. As time allows, I'll work on making the Chronicle-Herald better looking and easy to navigate. In the mean time, enjoy.


I'd like to begin with apologising for my periodic disappearances over the past month, and also for the dismal Joint Mission that we were recently involved in. It was a very last minute decision to join the Raeyan-Sector JM, and I thought it would be a good idea for a chance for you to inetract with others in the fleet. I'm sorry to say that I was wrong. I don't blame the entire group of COs who were running the JM, and I'm not going to name names.

Our next story is entitled: Episode 6: Out of the ashes, A King Arises, and will begin over the weekend. Please continue to post using the I2 in your subject lines for the time being. Episode 6 will be a Joint Mission with 2 other ships, BUT, there will be no combined list, instead, the crews of each ship will stay on their own list, and only the COs and XOs and AGMs will be on the combined list. This will hopefully prevent excessive posts that do not concern the overall storyline to clutter your mailboxes. We'll try it thsi way and see how it goes. If it works, it may become a new standard for future JMs.


Ship's Current Disposition:

We are FINNALLY getting ready to leave this JM and begin our next Episode, which is a partial sub-story of the overall campaign, but it is still our story, and that of our companion ship, which will be revealed shortly. The Tomar is currently in Klingon Space at Klach de kel Brakt, along with most of the rest of the ships that were at Avalon. Strikes forces have finally begun to return to Raeyan Space to begin the retaking of Federation space from the C'hakilian invaders.


Next Cycle:

The next Posting Cycle is Cycle 23, which will run for the entire month of May. All ACTIVE players will need to post 4 (FOUR) posts minimum. If you are on an LOA, please contatc me so that I know if you still need to stay on LOA status, otherwise, if I or one of the AGMs do not hear from you by the end of the month, you will be placed on MIA status.

All department heads should be submitting their monthly Department Head reports. Department Heads who continue to fail to submit will be reprimanded and eventually removed from their positions.

ALSO, I'm going to start enforcing the MIN # of posts per cycle rule, Starting May 1st, 2002. Even if you post, but don't post the min, you will be put on a Warning status, and moved up and down as appropriate. Please look at the Manual if you have any questions, or email the Admins.

Manual: http://members.tripod.com/usstomar/htmlfiles/simminfo/manual/policies.htm

Try to get into the habit of making your mins or contacting the Admins if you can't during this cycle.


Points and Status (Cycle 22):

I'm not going to penalize anyone this cycle for not posting and such, only because it was a screwy month with a big mess involved (i.e. the JM).

Your character will stay right where they are now if they have any sort of status, and will not lose any points, though if you posted during Cycle 22, you will gain points.

LOAs:

Don't be afraid to ask for an LOA if you really need one, or if you know you're going to be going away. I'm not going to bite your head off, in fact, most of the time, I'm going to ok it (9 out of 10). It saves me the headaches of wondering where you are, and also helps so that you don't lose points.

Some of you haven't posted, nor have I heard from you about anything.

You need to get in contact with me if you can't post as soon as you are able to post again, or even better, before, use somebody elses email if need be, put please, get in touch with me or one of the other AGMs and let us know. If I don't hear from you, I'm going to consider you MIA, and you'll be removed from the SIMM after so many cycles. If you want to leave the simm, please drop me a note and let me know, otherwise, if I remove players from the SIMM, I have to notify BFJAG, which can cause repercussions on you if you run other characters in BF. Please, be considerate, Thanks.


AFY Mailing List:

Everyone should be OFF of the AFY mailing list, UNLESS you are on another ship that is still on it. If you are still getting email, let me know.


Federation Times:

Please keep reading the Federation Times (http://www.bravofleet.com/bravofleet/fleet_news.htm) to keep up on what else is going on in BF and Starfleet. Stories here may have some impact on what happens in our SIMM.
