Quarterly Report – 2019 Q3

OVERVIEW

Our first full quarter in the fleet’s history has been a quiet one. The dust has settled all around and our players and GMs have focused on the one thing we have come here to do, which is write. I want to take a moment again to thank all of you for all of the fantastic writing that’s been coming out. It’s been a joy to read all of the submissions for Post of the Month, as well as see all of the fantastic interaction in our Discord server. 

Per the charter, I am required to give a report of the happenings throughout the fleet. This report will detail what little happenings we had, again, because we all have been focusing on our writing. Among our goals from the last quarter, we shift all formal business for the GM Council over to forums in order to help everyone properly keep along. The forums still haven’t seen much use, but we are seeing that change in Quarter 4. We also implemented Post of the Month awards, as well as Sim and Player Quarterly awards, which have been well received thus far.

As for the rest, well, on we go…

DOCKET

The Officers maintain a public docket to share with everyone, especially the GM Council, our present and upcoming tasks. The link to view can be found here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1jN8k1-64gtQ0YOf2v3isTNR_4PqolgDugZrRZ6gP0wY/edit?usp=sharing

FINAL WORDS

While this quarter was not nearly as active as our startup quarter, you can definitely see that we are still alive and well. The GM Council has turned much of its attention to their sims ensuring that their stories are advancing naturally. Our Officers are working on ways to publicize the fleet and share different stories coming from our games. We are extremely hopeful for a positive quarter.

Finally, I want to thank all of our GMs and our players for their support, their stories, and their efforts. It’s because of each of you that we flourish so excellently.

Don’t forget about FallFest IX on Saturday, November 9!
