Create a New Post

  1. Login

  2. Look at your Saved Missions Post List for all the in-progress posts you're currently tagged in.

  3. Glance through the Captain's Saved Mission Post List to check the upcoming timeline, other in-progress post titles, and time/date conventions.

  4. Go to Write Mission Post:
    1. Authors
      Select the characters involved in the post. Choose NPC characters by their names rather than their players.

    2. Title
      Give your new story post a title.

    3. Location
      Enter a location. This is the main setting where the story of the post will take place. Be as specific as you like.
      Example: Mess Hall

    4. Timeline
      Enter the date and time at the beginning of the post as, formatted as "Day Month, Year - 2400 Hours"
      Example: 12 March 2394 - 1600 Hours

    5. Content
      Start typing:
      1. Include an Out of Character (OOC) note by typing:
        (OOC YourFirstName: I think we should accomplish X and Y with this post. Here's my outline idea: 1.2.3.)

      2. Indicate people should start their storytelling by typing [ON] before the story starts.

      3. Set the scene for people and then type "TAG CharacterName" to let them know you would like them to react to what's happening.

      4. Example:

        (OOC Fred: This post will reveal who the traitor is, and then Yumi will kick them in the shins!)

        [ON]

        Cupping his hand over his mouth and communicator, the traitor whispered into it, "Yes, Smith will get us to the Tholian soon."

        TAG Yumi
