Goodbye for Now

This was a tough decision, but I'm going to be dropping Allen Walker, and thus the game for now. For the past few months, I've been having a lot of medical and RL issues that've made it hard for me to keep up with the game and it's to the point that I feel pretty burnt out at the idea of playing catch up.

I might come back in a few months with Allen or a whole new character once things have settled down more, but for now I'll be bowing out.

It's been a wonderful three years at Drift Fleet, and I've made so many good friends and memories here. Thank you for all the wonderful times. I love this game, and I wish it the best.

Allen will be leaving behind all his stuff. Timcanpy will be stolen by going to Crowley, Riona will be getting his best Claymore, and Sokka will get a handmade leather bag with lots of useful compartments and the Water Tribe symbol etched on it that Allen had commissioned for a Christmas gift.

The rest of his stuff is free to be split among the rest of his CR (or people who like free stuff): his room has tons of random halloween-esque (aka creepy) decorations, stowed away snacks (for emergencies!), deck of cards, a pack of cigarettes stashed in a hidden compartment, a comical amount of various weapons for a medic, some glowing fish, and a huge collection of really bad movies he's picked up in systems.

Goodbye for now, and I'll see you among the stars.

+1 soldier boy, too

brb stalking aerith or something

Sup friends! Akai here with a couple of switches. First, I have dropped Kirito [personal profile] huaaaaagh. I had a really awesome time with him, he was my first character here! But all good things come to an end. Love and hugs to his remaining CR ;;

Second, assuming I get mod-blessing, in the next little bit I will be switching Mikleo's account from [personal profile] nerdeology to [personal profile] tsunergy. He's growing his hair out! What a nerd, right. but a pretty one

Finally, I have apped Zack Fair from Final Fantasy VII/Crisis Core!



For those not familiar with the canon, he's our Cloud's... predecessor, let's say. Elite chemically-enhanced soldier, kind of a huge sweetheart, a walking talking puppy. Fantasy Steve Rogers, in a sense. He loves, like, everyone. So let's be friends, yeah?

+1 flower girl


Hello everyone! Rachel here (Hermione/Zaveid) bringing you another character - Aerith from the Final Fantasy VII complication! For anyone canon familiar she's coming in from after the events of Advent Children. For anyone not canon familiar her app is over here (with game/compilation spoilers, of course); she's a optimistic, charming young woman who can be as nice as she is stubborn.

I look forward to throwing her at you all c:

Like a bad penny...

Hi everyone! It is I, Katsu, with the human version of Happy Fun Ball, Wrath. Wrath was in the fleet for... about a year and a half I want to say? And then real life got to me pretty bad in January and I had to drop for a while. But I've really missed the game, so I'm back, and excited to be here. :) Looking forward to getting back into the swing of things.

There's no time like the Shuffle.

New Passengers will find themselves teleported to the bridge of their new ship with no warning! Everyone loves a surprise! There'll be a flutter of confetti, a playful and welcoming musical tune, and small tray with cups of chocolate-flavored pudding desserts sent along to celebrate. Welcome to your new ship, passengers!

Additional Notes:
  • We're looking for mod helpers! You can check out the details here. If you have a little time, please consider tossing in an application.
  • Some ships have fallen to 60 percent capacity or below. As a result, players have expressed interest in fusing ships! We have a permanent submission page here with the process and forms. Ships with six or fewer people are allowed to apply. If you were considering a fusion, but gained a seventh that was shuffled by the mods, then you are still eligible. Feel free to contact us with any questions!

    Hey guys, I just wanted to apologize for posting a journal entry for Another Game into ours. I didn't realize it until I was reading posts and went ... whaaaat?

    So it is taken down, but I will come up with a new post for THIS Tyrion soon. Again, many apologies!

    ANNOUNCEMENT: help wanted!

    Hello, Dear Fleet!

    As you all may know, our beloved game has a lot of technical details, and a lot of things that go on behind the scenes. While having all of our wonderful spreadsheets certainly makes things a lot easier on the players as well as the mod team, it unfortunately isn't quite enough of a help when it comes to covering the sheer magnitude of things that need doing, things that need tidying up, and things that need to happen on a regular, consistent basis.

    Also, both head mods have full-time jobs, one head mod is still learning the balance necessary when it comes to modding a game that has more than like ten people in it, and the other head mod has a curse in which if she so much as breathes on a spreadsheet, the whole thing collapses in a violent death of e-fire and code. So that's fun!

    Anyway, long story short, we need help.

    Drift Fleet is looking for One or Two (1-2) Helper Mod(s)!

    Helper mods would be on-call, as needed, to help with small or more specific tasks:
    - assisting with shuffles
    - assisting with activity checks
    - assisting the App Mod with anything she deems necessary
    - combing the info pages for needed edits
    - adding new and needed info to the info pages
    - writing up small bits of an IC or OOC blurb for an event
    - being a tiebreaker in votes whenever needed

    We will totally work with your schedule so that you don't have to worry about being available at any times that don't work for you. If you prefer a regular, set timeframe during which you will be available to do things, we can set that up. If you prefer to just be contacted when needed, that is also an option.

    If you're interested, please fill out the following form/"application" in a comment to this entry. All comments will be screened for privacy. We'll begin looking through comments and discussing our choice in a few weeks time to give people plenty of time to decide if this is something they'd like to do. Thank you very much!

    This arrival is a little bit different! New passengers will wake up in their designated rooms aboard their new homes, along with everyone else, after Calibrations have completed. Upon exiting their room and stepping into the hallway, there will be that all-too-familiar (to everyone else) flutter of confetti, a playful and welcoming musical tune, and a small tray with cups of chocolate-flavored pudding desserts sent along to celebrate. Welcome to your new ship passengers!

    June Plot / Calibrations Wrap-Up!

    After a long, intense month, the Calibrations event is now officially ending. Thank you to everyone for making this event such a wonderful experience! We simply can’t get over how creative all of you are, and your enthusiasm has just been downright contagious! You really are the best Drift Fleet Cycle a Mysterious Corporation In Space could ask for, you know that~?

    Buuuut seriously, you are also the best players a mod team could ask for. Here’s to you, Flooters. ♥ You’re all wonderful. We hope you all had as much fun as we did.

    We have a few things to go over, so please check out all of the details in this post to make sure you catch everything before we move forward! Click )

    ------------
    The Drift Fleet is now officially drifting! We want to give ample time for people to continue to backtag without feeling like they need to focus on the next new shiny, so the fleet will stay in drift from today, July 9th, until July 21st. During this drift period, the Fleet will continue on its course as if it never got held up in the first place! Convenient! Feel free to refamiliarize yourself with the ships, the Iskaulit, meet your new crewmates, or find some way to cope with the fallout of what the heck all of you just went through. As always, there are your standard waystations now and then that are perfectly explorable, should you need to get out and stretch your legs for a bit.

    Do try to have fun, yes? And, of course -- welcome home, dear Drift Fleet.

    IT'S FINE EVERYTHING'S FINE!!!!



    Hello! I'm Mel, aka Mippa, and I'm bringing in this fancy Space Princess from across the galaxy! I'm sure Allura will find herself quite at home here...at least starting off.

    Allura is one of two Lone Survivors of her entire race and has a vested interest in universal peace - so she's something of a goody two-shoes but is still a teenager when you get to the bottom of it, in spite of being in cryo-stasis for a handful of millenia.

    I'm on Plurk at [personal profile] kittystalker so feel free to add me and goob over there as well! Nice to meet you all! ♥

    Sorry to do this after just joining a little over a month ago, but issues have work have made it so I have to cut down on what games I'm in for a couple months and with Drift Fleet being one of the newest, is the easiest for me to let go. The game and casts are great. Thank you for having me.

    If anyone wants to grab Daryl's freebie blanket, they can - he does have holes cut into it with reminders of what he's found while exploring the Marvisa with the glitches happening. It's all in morse code, though, so unless you're familiar and lay it out flat, it's not going to make a lot of sense. Because of the limits of that, it's all quick notes about the panels and what the information covers with only a few more detailed things here and there and that he's written this down a couple times but couldn't remember the other times.

    Hey guys! This is Cass, Tempest's player, bringing in - oh who am I kidding it's another asshole. This is Sawyer from Lost, that show about an airplane crashing on an island And Lots Of Stuff Happens. Sawyer is a con man asshole jerkface who likes to give nicknames and has his sarcasm turned up to 11 at all times. And that's if he likes you. He's also CRAU from another game so he may recognize a face or two except that loser Sayid, gross

    I can be found on [plurk.com profile] sociologize for all your plotting needs. I can't wait to throw this jerk at everyone. ♥

    +1 Voltron Paladin!

    hi everybody! i'm Hika and i've been invited to join y'all with this angry little bean, Pidge Gunderson from Voltron: Legendary Defender... aka The Green Paladin! this paladin is coming in fresh from the end of season 2, and will be heading straight for the calibration rooms, lololol.

    for the canon-blind, Pidge is purposefully androgynous-looking because SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER Pidge is actually a girl that's been disguised as a boy to sneak into the Garrison. i use she/her pronouns as well, but it doesn't much matter to her ICly, so your characters are welcome to use whatever seems right. :) /ENDSPOILERS

    uhhh. anyway, yeah! y'all can add me on plurk ([plurk.com profile] hikaranko) if you'd like to plot things or just... chat. lol. :D looking forward to playing with e

    Sort of new guy

     Hey all, Poshu here. I play your local anxious figure skater, Yuri Katsuki and now I am bringing in Noctis Lucis Caelum from FFXV. We had a Noct who left and I am here now so if you had CR with Noctis feel free to throw your characters at him and watch him NOT REMEMBER ANY OF THEM. 

    Because that's fun to do to people, right?

    heyo, driftfleet!! i'm lyn, i'm fresh meat invited here by the lovely tad, and i'm bringing y'all gideon from the dctv universe. specifically from legends of tomorrow.

    for those not in the know, gideon is (usually) an ai connected to a ship called the waverider. she's a snarky floating head with an english accent most of the time, but there was one point in canon where we got to see her with a physical body! and she's coming to the game from a psl where she's also had a chance to get a physical body and had a few days to start getting used to it because that makes everything more fun.

    i'm super thrilled to be here and getting a chance to play with y'all! if any of you want to plot or chat or whatever, i'm most easily reached on plurk ([plurk.com profile] chanterie) and discord! (chanterie#3878)
