XO's General Story Summary

M3: Into the Deep has been officially opened! New players are making their introductions and writers are continuing Character development, backstory and other threads. The Primary mission has yet to unfold. Watch this space.

Posting count took another respectable boost, and writing participation also grew! Every active member of the sim appeared in at least one post this month, so cheers across the board, and Becca gets a shout-out for being a superstar and featuring in nine posts! woot-woot

Award Notes:
- Lots of new award descriptions were added to our sim's program! Some original sim level ones, as well as awards to account for Fleet recognition. Award images yet to come. Check out the relevant news item. OC Awards Program E-X-P-A-N-D-S

- M2: Sanctuary Awards Ceremony went up! Lots of much deserved love! M2: Mission End Awards Ceremony

OC Wiki Development:
Two New categories were added to the site wiki:
Out of Character- essentially directional material for the sim
Article Bay- A new feature for Articles of interest!
Future development for non-fiction writing support articles and further game manual materials is floating around in the XO's head. If anyone is interested in contributing to the OC wiki, just reach out to Sep or Nikki.

Recruitment Campaign:
In March, recruitment ads were re-posted in multiple discord channels. Some visitors came by the discord, but no new applications were submitted. Obsidian Command will be making another round of discord server advertisements in the month of April.

As we roll out a new mission, it continues to be an ideal time to invite a friend to join Obsidian Command and grow our writing family!

Thanks all,
