Yep, that's right ladies and gentleman...

They gave me a Command!

Diligent Class *AHEM* Um, excuse me... Sunbird Class.

No website yet, but... It's coming! All positions are open, and I've gotta find good writers to fill the slots. So, please feel free to shoot me a PM or reply in this thread.

Obsidian Fleet didn't want to copy the name, I dunno WTF they were thinking IMO Diligent is a better name... Oh well, it's still the same ship.

I'm glad you're coming onboard as my XO though! Super stoked!!!

Anyone else gonna join us?

I don't know. How does this work? I've never done an RPG except for Classic Marvel and Mutants and Masterminds and those are tabletop RPGs.

It's similar to message board posting, except it's more than likely going to be play by web, meaning Nova SMS. Similar to message boards, except better.

Cap, its quite a lot like a bunch of people writing a fanfic together, only you don't get to write for all the characters, you only get to write for one of them.

Which is why it can be absolutely delightful or a complete nightmare, depending on the size of various egos involved.

I'll try to think up a character, JW.

Maybe a Horrusi or a Tellarite...

Cam, are you doing this as well? ):(

Cap, it's pretty similar to what we're doing with Sanctuary Fleet. I don't think I'd have the patience for it, but it is a cool idea. I might try it one of these days. Cool ship, West.

Thank you, thank you. When run properly, it runs fast-paced and smooth. But when mismanaged, it's a living hell.

I run a tight ship. As of today, Cam is officially my XO! Cap, you gonna come onboard too?
