Grab your supplies and do one last lap around the ring. By the end of the day today (3/01), the Marsiva will be heading out of the system into parts unknown. The path they are following seems to be an established travel route, as there’s a decent amount of ship traffic along the way from Co’kal, Daisoe, and human ships.

    ★ DRINK FLEET! ★

    Hello, flooters! As a special gift to you all from your new mods, we designed cocktails for each of the ships. There are two cocktails we weren't able to take pictures of because we ran out of booze (can you believe it?) but they're freaking delicious, we promise.

    DISCLAIMER: Please don't drink if you're under 21. Don't drink and drive. Do not try to make all of these and then drink them in one sitting, that's too much booze. And finally, if you're too nervous to light something on fire, don't do it. Please be careful! ~* Enjoy Responsibly *~

    On to the party!

    Hey guys! The ship fusion poll is now closed, and thanks to your wonderful responses, we were able to figure out what to do with ship fusions! Thank you again for taking the time to voice your opinions!

    So without further ado, we're proud to announce that the Ship Fusion Page is now open for sign-ups! It'll be under the EXTRAS section on the navigation. Go ahead and take a look!

    The week of travel has passed on peacefully. Aside from a few unusual glitches on a number of ships, the drift week has been much less eventful than the last time. Space traffic picks up as the Marsiva approaches the next system. This isn’t the busiest stretch of space the fleet has come across, it’s enough to signal that yet again, the fleet has reached a new system.

    Hey guys! Mod Team here to talk about an issue that we know many players have noticed. That issue is low crew numbers. This doesn't apply to every ship, but I know that even though our character count is still 100+, there are many crews that have been regularly dealing with crews that are 4 or less people. We know this issue can frankly cause an assortment of problems, so we wanted to address the issue with you guys, and throw out some possible solutions.

    Ships repaired and wounds mended, by the end of the day the Marsiva begins to move out of the system and into parts unknown. The standard waystations are along the way as usual, and interstellar traffic slowly picks up as to a medium crawl as the fleet travels this week.

    Hello, our dear Drift Fleet friends! Red and Stick here with an update in important happenings that have been going on behind the scenes.

    As we've mentioned in the past, we have been doing a lot of internal restructuring of the game as our availability and lives have changed over the last several months. Our entire team of helpers has been amazing during the whole process--slowly taking on duties one-by-one, keeping things organized, and streamlining any area of the game that we haven't been able to manage ourselves. They've even been running plots and coming up with great event ideas during the last couple of months.

    We feel very comfortable in announcing that Yuff, Saffy, and Maggie are now officially considered Drift Fleet moderators, instead of just mod-helpers. Congrats, you three! You've been totally invaluable in keeping the game surviving and growing, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

    As for us (Stick & Red)--health problems and growing real-life responsibilities don't seem to be getting easier any time soon, so we have dropped our characters from the game and are continuing to hand over aspects of moderation that we no longer have the time or energy to take care of. For now, we're both still considered moderators ourselves, though our roles have been greatly reduced. Stick is stepping out almost entirely, and Red is now mostly in charge of creative direction and world-plot things--though they're slowly working on handing those responsibilities over as well.

    We are stepping back, but we'll still be around! While most game-related questions should be directed to our three new mods, we will still be available on plurk (or PM on any of our character journals) for chatting and whatnot. You are all incredibly special to us both, and we're both grateful and happily stunned at the community that has grown here. When we first started this game, it was essentially a glorified musebox where our RP-weary friends could come hang out and have a relaxed, easygoing time with a positive collection of players. We are so happy to know that even though our game has grown far bigger and busier than we ever could have anticipated, the game has never lost sight of its original goal.

    As always, if anyone has any questions or concerns about anything, don't hesitate to let us know! The titles might be changing around a bit, but nothing will really be changing as far as rules, gameplay, or the heart of the game goes.

    Thanks, everyone!
