You have captured my interest good sir and I look forward to playing your other adventures! Thanks for helping me 'live out' my Trek fantasy and please keep up the good work!
Wow...well, thank you very much, that is high praise indeed. I'm glad you enjoyed that series and I hope that if you play more of my missions in the future you find them to be of equal or better quality. Knowing that people are playing and enjoying my missions is the best encouragement there is and it's great to know that you found the story engaging and enjoyable.

I will do my best to ensure that any future missions I create as just as good if not better!

First, I just want to grovel and apologize that Part 2 of the Ambria's Pride series isn't out yet, but since the first part only has 8 or so reviews so far I guess I don't have to worry too much. I've been very busy, but I'll get it done soon, I promise.

As well as trying to finish my own work (Ambria's Pride: Garden of the Dead and Deianeira: The Importance of Being Q) I'm not involved in a larger project with some other great Foundry authors. I could go on at length about it, but it would probably be easier for all involved if I just linked to it...so, here you go: Click here!

It looks like it's going to be a huge project and there are already some great ideas floating around. I'll be taking on the Cardassian portion of the story, so should be fun.

There really wasn't much for this update...just mentioning that huge project to hopefully drum up some interest and to make excuses for why my missions aren't getting done as quickly as they usually do...If I think of anything later then I'll amend this post, but otherwise, thank you for your continued interest and all that good stuff.

I will get those missions done, promise.

EDIT: Just a quick addition. I have updated Ambria's Pride: The Eagle's Claw and fixed a small problem towards the end of the mission involving a place marker not triggering. It should work as intended now.

Part two of Ambria's Pride is finally complete! That's right, Garden of the Dead is finished and published. I know it took a while but I had a lot of other things going on and I was suffering a little writer's block, but that's all irrelevant now.

So, rush over to the Foundry and check out the Ambria's Pride series! And while you're there give part one of the Deianeira series Thicker Than Water a try too! I'll be continuing that series next, with part two, The Importance of Being Q. I will try and get that mission out a little faster than I finished this one...

I plan on making Ambria's Pride a three part series and Deianeira a four part series, so we're getting close to the end of Ambria's Pride. I will probably release the next two or three Deianeira missions before the third part of Ambria's Pride, just FYI. So keep an eye out.

Please continue playing and enjoying my missions and keep the questions and comments coming.

Thank you.

I really enjoyed your mission. As usual the first half is very heavy on dialogue, which I think is great, since it helps relating to the story, about Ambria.

A small suggestion, as not everyone might have played the first Ambria storylines so it could be good to include alternate dialogue options for them. It could also help to include an info-terminal with information about Ambria and recent history and events from past storyline missions.

The mission deserves attention from more players and the Ambria series should be spotlighted.

I'm glad to hear you enjoyed it and I will look into implementing some of your suggestions. It may take a while for me to get to it as I am currently working on finishing part 2 of my Deianeira series The Importance of Being Q as well as working on the Cardassian story for the Persistent Foundry project.

Thank you,

It's finally happened! I have finally completed part two of the Deianeira series! That's right, The Importance of Being Q is finally complete and published. I've added it to the list on the first page of this thread and I'll get a picture up there soon too.

Now I'm going to take a short break from the ever expanding storyline of my own missions because I'm working with a load of fantastic Foundry authors on the Persistent Foundry Project. There's a link somewhere in a previous post in this thread...but I'll save you the time and just another one here! (Persistent Foundry) It looks like it should be a pretty fun and interesting project, so keep an eye out for when we publish. I'll probably post about it here.

I don't intend to completely neglect my own missions of course, but I'm not sure there will be a new one published before my mission for the PFP is published. For anyone that's played all my missions already...you should have taken more time to do them, maybe a break between missions? I kid, glad you enjoyed them, but you might have to wait a little bit for the continuation of the Ambria/Deianeira stories.

For those of you who haven't played them all, now's a great time to go through the back catalogue of my missions! I currently have 17 published missions, 16 of which are part of a sprawling, continuous, interconnected storyline...the other one is part one of the (apparently) cursed Mind Games series.

Give them all a try, tell me what you liked, what you didn't and how I can improve my future missions! I love hearing from players and fellow authors and I hope I can give you a somewhat immersive, entertaining and interesting experience.

I think that's about it for now. As usual if I missed something or think of anything later I'll be sure to come back and edit the post...otherwise, thanks to everyone that's played my missions and anyone who plays them in the future!

Red Alert! Update - Monday, March 11, 2013 - 12:57am (EST) Red Alert!

I just want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who has been playing my missions and leaving all the amazing comments and sending me such great feedback! I love writing stories for the Foundry and knowing that there are people out there enjoying them.

And apparently they are being enjoyed as I have just reached 25,000 dilithium in tips! Thank you to all the generous Captains out there who tipped and to all the other Captains out there who have yet to play my missions I hope you do soon and that you enjoy them too!

I will not be publishing part 3 of the Ambria's Pride series or parts 3 and 4 of the Deianeira series for a little while as I am currently busy working on the first part of the Cardassian story for the Persistent Foundry Project. So keep an eye out for that, it promises to be a pretty interesting project.

Once again, thank you to all the Captains who have given my missions a try. Please, if you enjoyed them, spread the word so others can play them too.

It's been a while since I posted anything, either on this thread or in game and I'm sorry to say that's because there really hasn't been anything to post. I've been working on my mission for the Persistent Foundry Project, but it's slow going and in parts almost moving backwards...as for Ambria's Pride and Deianeira...those aren't going that well either.

Well, actually, Ambria's Pride isn't going at all as I'm not currently working on it, while the third part in the Deianeira series is also slow going. I try to work on it when I have the time and I can't think of what to do for the Persistent Foundry thing, but I've reached a bit of a drought as far as writing/building is concerned.

I've been getting some fantastic comments on my missions, which is both helpful and encouraging, so thank you to all those who have been playing and reviewing. To those I know have finished all my missions, I will try and get something published soon, but I want to make sure I'm publishing good quality missions, and that means taking the time to make sure I have a compelling story, good maps and fun game play.

Hopefully something gets the wheels turning again soon so that I will be able to continue creating missions. I do have some really exciting ideas lined up, I just have to get through Deianeira Part III and this Persistent Foundry mission. After that, it should be smooth (or at least smoother) sailing.

Thank you all for your patience and amazing feedback. I hope I can continue creating Foundry missions for you all to enjoy.

I don't know if you still read your postings, but I am about to start your series, and am heartened by all the good reviews. So far, I have been unable to find "The Importance of being Q" either under the normal episodes or the reviewer status. Did it somehow become unpublished?

I'm an avid Foundry player, and love great missions.

I do still read my posts (although a little less frequently because of a lack of time to do so). Hello! I'm glad to hear you're playing my missions and hope you enjoy them.

You may be having trouble finding that particular mission because I may have withdrawn it in order to fix a map that was having serious problems, though if I recall correctly I encountered new problems that seemed to have popped up, so it is taking me a little time to repair and republish. I will try and get it up soon so that you can give it a try.

Also...this may be one of my older threads (I think this was the second and I did create a third, for various reasons) so future updates will be there. I plan on going and posting there now, so hopefully it will be closer to the top of the forum (If I can find it).

I hope this helps and that you enjoy my missions. I will try to get working on new missions soon.

EDIT:

*IMPORTANT*

I just want to point out that this thread is an old one and I have no posted in it for some time (with the exception of a post I made earlier replying to someone who had posted here, telling them I no longer post here...don't think about it too much, you'll just get a headache).

My most recent thread can be found here: http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh...1#post12320181

This is where all updates about my missions and such will be posted. Please direct all questions, comments and information hunting sessions there.

Thank you very much,
