    Lol it is all good. No worries. Small note it is @greyjedi125 not @greyjedi123. Also a pop down list should appear when you begin to type the persons name after the '@' which is pretty useful.

    W00T!! you did it. [face_dancing]

    There is no reason to apologize, I certainly didn't know this when I started. Just happy to help when possible, all good as @Shadowsun mentioned. Now let's go conquer Space, the Final Frontier.....oh, wait, wrong game. [face_laugh]

    @Master Vo'Un'Var informs me he is taking a break from the boards. Hopefully he will be back soon. In the mean time I will control his characters until his return. Update on Wednesday.

    :D

    This message was slightly misinterpreted when sent, and I am in fact still apart of this game and working on my post. :D

    Yuck a triple post....You guys need to be more active ;):p Lol I'm kidding....

    Anyway in @Master Vo'Un'Var part I mentioned something called a 'Raven' This is what that is:

    [​IMG]
    P-07 "Raven"
    More patrol and reconnaissance ship then a fighter ship. It is the most common type of strike craft the US employs. Has RCS ports to change direction in addition to the main engine which allows it to be extremely maneuverable. It does have some light weapon systems if necessary.

    Zeus indeed. Harumph!

    *slowly glances at what his own scientists onboard are doing however* ...oh sure, speeding up the trial process has never gone wrong... [face_worried]

    I'm sure it doesn't incite much confidence to be on board the same ship as them either. Rushing through the trials, plus if it ever got released prematurely? That's nightmare fuel right there! :eek:

    Alright so it has come to my attention that @SirakRomar is 'unable to access the boards for an unknown period of time' (quoting LordT's post in the ooc thread for The seeking)

    As I am not able to contact Sirak and wanting not to abruptly drop Andrea's plotline, I will take temporary control until either Sirak is able to rejoin or I can find a place in the plotline to quietly phase out Andrea.

    @SirakRomar if your situation changes and I have phased out Andrea and you would like to return PM me and we can make something work.

    Thank you all for your understanding.

    On a side note as I have now returned to collegeland most of my more 'heavy' writing will now be done on the weekends. There may be times when I have to take a small break if coursework bogs up or around midterms/finals but I'll be sure to communicate that should that arise.

    I would like to update once a week but that honestly depends on how things go....lol!

    Stay safe and thank you all again for embarking on this journey with me!

    :)

    Very happy to be finally here. 'If' anything goes 'wrong', I'll be sure to make a general announcement once I've reached 'safe distance'. :p

    And W00T!!! [face_dancing]

    Alright I would like to give a warm welcome to the mastermind behind the brewing storm @TheAdmiral and my fellow test companion @spacelady Glad to have you both on board!

    And now a small announcement:

    Each update of Calm before the storm takes a long time to write, which is fine. Just part of the nature of how I choose to setup and run this game., just as a result I can only really write it when I have a large block of time available. Thus I expect I'll update sometime this weekend. (Luckily I have a three day weekend!) Also I'm waiting on a certain Soviet Official ...:p

    Thanks again for all your support guys it means a lot! :D

    Alright, so for the Soviet situation, we have Viktor Turgenev (me), leader of the СССР who is currently heading to a meeting and has just been notified of a US presence near one of his satellites. (Fairly sure Elu was the one who found it)

    We also have Volk (Me, again) and Simi (@Jedi_Ascension) about to land on Mars, with one more Soviet and three Chinese.

    That is the Soviet situation so far (I think) We also have @TheAdmiral joining us in the Motherland in the next update I believe. Hope this helps somewhat.

    Right now everything feels like it is building up to a storm. So we are still in very early days.

    Also, @Shadowsun , and update is being worked on on my end :D

    To add on to what @Master Vo'Un'Var said:

    A tense situation is also developing on the surface of the Moon where the Soviets are expanding their mining operations around the Shackleton Crater (the crater serves as the source of ice and water for both Soviet and US lunar bases). They are in danger of crossing over into the neutral zone and impeding on NATO's turf. The US took notice and is launching an investigation into their movements, along with the European Federation and other NATO member states. In the meantime, the US intends to reach out to the Soviets and see if they can glean any information through diplomatic channels. That's when the USSF Mauna Kea discovered the Soviet satellite hurtling toward Tranquility Base (the US base).

    Also, for reference, here is the dramatis personae:

    Beth Roland; First Lady of the United States (American) – portrayed by spacelady
    Gurkovsky Semyon Dmitrievich; mechanic and psychologist (Russian) – portrayed by Jedi_Ascension
    Kurt Roland; President of the United States (American) – portrayed by HanSolo29
    Marston Roland; Captain of the USSF Mauna Kea (American) – portrayed by Darth_Elu
    Raul Alberto Salvador; technical advisor (American) – portrayed by greyjedi125
    Tatyana Viktorovna Miheeva; pilot and cosmonaut (Russian) – portrayed by TheAdmiral
    Viktor Artemovich Turgenev; General Secretary of the United Soviet Socialist Republics (Russian) – portrayed by Master Vo'Un'Var
    Volk Okhotnikovich; cosmonaut, commander, and pilot (Russian) – portrayed by Master Vo'Un'Var


    I also wanted to extend a warm welcome to both @TheAdmiral and @spacelady – it's great to have you both on board! :D
