The Commanders Word
Posted on Sunday December 1st, 2019 @ 4:15am by Commander Franklin Johnson
I think since Number Two has taken over the proper approach to what a news item should look like (awesome job Kanaka!), I'll take the background approach and give out my little tidbits under the guise of "The Commanders Word". I'll start it off proper with a short and sweet one.
First off, awesome job to everyone who participated in Departure: Part's One and Two, and especially Recovery (I'm looking at you Karn Karn!). All of you, each and every one of you, breathe the life necessary into the story of this ship to make it not only real, but vibrant and warranting our attention and dedication. You are the crew that moves this ship, without you the Poseidon would be nothing. I want to thank you all, humbly, from the bottom of my heart for making this sim as popular, as lively, as real, as fun as it is. Thank you all!
Secondly, let's all give a warm round of applause to Kanaka themself! Kanaka has, without a doubt, been the central driving force for the mechanisms of this machine. The players give the mechanism purpose, but it is Kanaka that ensures the gears are oiled and the mechanism operates fully. I have been flabbergasted at how much they have taken on so easily and so well, and I am in continued awe at how they're keeping things in order. Thank you, Number Two, you truly are one of the most irreplaceable assets to this ship, and a good friend.
Thirdly, let's give a round of applause to Sydney! During my escapes at Thanksgiving I missed out on a critical component of how they're keeping track of things. They have a literal boxed list of detail keeping track of every room for every person. That is outstanding dedication to story and ship continuity, well done. Please remember to all new crew, approach Sydney for room designation when prompted or available.
Lastly, I've handed out some relevant awards this month to mark what I've detailed. We haven't had much time for anything else due to the holidays, so I apologize. We'll try to do better next month but no promises, another Holiday is around the corner! Keep doing well and I will do my best to hand out those awards. You deserve the recognition.
Crew, from the bottom of my heart, thank you. Thank you, all of you. From Number One and Number Two, Phoebe and Kanaka, to Sydney Allen our Quartermaster, thank you to *all* of you. You make my story come to life. I am proud you have taken on this story, made it come to life, and given it a soul. You bring me to tears sometimes because of how well you make this sim come to life. So thank you, from the bottom of heart, thank you all - new to old, thank you.
