So much going on in communication this month that I thought I might need two reports to tell you all about the things but I just about rounded it up without it being a squash and a squeeze. 


We have not done a survey since 2020 but it very much is that time again. We would like to know what fleet tools you use, how you communicate and more importantly what you think of some of the changes that have happened so far from previous feedback.

You can find the survey HERE.

We will use the information to help us make the best choices possible for Obsidian Fleet going forward. The survey is open until the 23rd. We have changed the date to allow us to go through comments and things that are changing, adjusting and moving with the community as we have already listened to and actioned some of the feedback. 


You may have seen on our discord sever that we have a new bot called Polaris and we have a channel that now has a leaderboard. The more you chat in the general channels the more XP you get. Please try not to spam the channels just to build your level up as any cheating will result in points being deducted to keep it fair.

You can earn points with engagement – like socials, running events or in this case if you summon me on Discord and tell me your favourite colour you will get 200 points. 


If you did not know we also have the following social media that we manage. This month we have added Instagram. Every follow, click and like counts towards getting us out there to potential players. If anyone has anything they want to add to social media let us know.

And this month we have finally sorted out the Youtube that was started years ago which is currently only holding one video on how to use the previous version of IFS. Watch this space as things are planned.

And finally, we have signed up for Threads. 

If you subscribe or like to any of our social media accounts you will get polaris 500 points per social.  


We are looking for people to talk to on our podcast or suggest content. If you have a passion for a subject reach out and speak to us but we have had suggestions that we would love to have people appear for.

Signup sheet

We currently have three episodes in editing so there will be more coming your way soon. 


We need everyone – players and GMs alike – to submit news stories. These could be anything from an extraordinary mission on your sim to a great post you want to see everyone talking about. Game Masters, please remember we have sim, post, character and mission spotlights to shout out to everyone about how awesome you guys are as well as a new news item for purely Opinion/Editorial.

It also doesn’t take long to get them approved either just need to summon any member of the fleet council on Discord in IFS3 for help.

If you need assistance please contact me.


We are venturing into lots of new technology, media and socials around the fleet to keep us moving forward into the future. My door is always open for suggestions and feedback even outside of surveys so i will be keeping the survey form open in some format permanently. 

Also do not forget you can vote for group-level awards.
