118th TIE/IN Interceptor Vast Imperial "Wildfire" Squadron


Welcome, pilots!

Please refer to the main Navy Roster or our squadron wiki page for our roster and other additional information.

Squadron Protocols:
  • Discord: Please be active on Discord whenever possible. Chatting together is an important part of maintaining a fun, healthy community!
  • Word Counts: There is no minimum word count per story post, and no need to track word count. Just be reasonable and enjoy the story.
  • Reports: We are going to re-institute weekly reports, but the emphasis is on making them as quick and easy as possible. The squadron commander will provide a link to a Google Form each week. Simply fill out the form and you're done. It should take 2-3 minutes and is more about keeping touch with everyone than holding peoples' feet to the fire.
  • ICS Items: Things you have purchased from the Imperial Center Store may be used/mentioned in our squadron stories with the following exception: personal vehicles, including starfighters and larger ships, may only be used with the approval of the NCC or CNO.
  • Personal Stories/CD Stories: You are highly encouraged to engage in stories outside of our squadron stories. Run character development stories for your pilot, or even create stories about completely unrelated characters. Guest write in STC stories if you'd like (with their approval). It may not all be VE canon, but freestyle writing is more than welcome!

I was personally a big fan of how the squadrons in the EE had a consistent, lore-friendly naming scheme; species names worked pretty well, but not the only category that could work.

I'd personally love Hawk-bat squadron, but I'm biased.

This's just my input as a member, not as an officer: I'd also like for us to us have a consistent nomenclature for all the squadrons in the new wing. The species names have worn a bit thin for me personally, though, and finding enough new ones may not be easy. For a change of pace, I was thinking names incorporating natural disasters might work well. Things like Hailstorm Squadron, Storm Chaser Squadron, Wildfire Squadron, Groundquake Squadron (TIE Bombers, anyone?), etc.

Actually, I like that. I like that a lot. You could even split it by 'element':

TIEs: Wildfire, Flare

Interceptors: Hailstorm, Blizzard

Bombers: Thunder, Quake

The pun master in me wants an Interceptor squadron named Thunder and a Bomber squadron named Lightning.

I like it. Some other options that might work:

Maybe Firestorm rather than Flare? A bit more menacing.

For the bomber "element" maybe Groundquake and Rockslide? Thunder seems more stormy than earthy.

Typhoon Squadron sounds much more menacing than Hurricane or Cyclone Squadron. :P

Don't forget Eclipse Squadron, though I think it was used in the past.

As long as we avoid using elements on the Periodic Table, I think we'll be good

Twister Squadron or Tornado Squadron?  Or is there another word for it?

Ooh!  Tempest Squadron!  I like that one! ^_^

Raigen!!  Welcome back!! ^_^

And we've changed to fire-borne storm name ideas now.  My nomination is Hellfire Squadron!

Also, we're all on Discord now.  I think we even have a link for it on here somewhere...

Sorry, we're not reviving any of the original names, Raigen. They're honorably retired.

Let's get an official vote going for the player-character squadron's name. Post your preference here to vote:

Firestorm Squadron

or

Wildfire Squadron

(I was tempted to include Hellfire Squadron as an option, Amacuse, but it doesn't really fit the wing's theme.)

Also, folks, I'd like to announce that I'll be serving as the initial Squadron Commander for our new squadron.

Given our relatively low numbers at the moment, and the shuttering of the Fleet side, I need some stuff to do in-story too. And it'll help keep things simpler OOC as well.

So I'll be introducing a new character to fly with the squadron, likely a nephew or cousin of Drac's because I'm an ancient old codger and nostalgia must be served.

I'll be putting together the official roster in the next day or so. If you have wingman requests, please let me know.

Awesome. How's the old flight-stick hand holding up?

As far as names go, my vote is for Wildfire.

No particular roster requests on my end, although I do enjoy having NPCs to play with. Will we be using three-man or four-man flights?

There are many aspects of the Force we have no knowledge of. The subject still requires further research and study.

@Raigen: The story is essentially a refresher for us, since either a good majority of us have either been away for a long time, been in that weird dead zone following the previous reboot attempt, or are new.  Plus, it's something to do while High Command gets a proper story worked out for us. :3

The only reason it is listed as VENA is that it is a storyline that follows supposed events that took place at the Academy, and was started by the CNT.

Alrighty, so we're currently sitting at Wildfire 3, Firestorm 2.

Raigen, if you'd like to cast a vote? I'll give it another day or so before I wrap up the voting. I'll announce the initial roster then too.

Also, as a heads-up, we'll be re-instituting weekly reporting. However, my goal is to make it as fast and painless as possible. I'll provide a link to a Google Form each week, and you'll go fill it out. And it's just that simple. Very little typing required, and it should take no more than 2 or 3 minutes.

There's no need to send individual reports to flight leaders or the squadron XO (who will all be announced with the roster). Filling out the google form will be the only reporting necessary.

Ah, see. I could vote firestorm simply to tie up the process and hope for a new name, but I won't do that. Wildfire for me.

Wildfire edges out Firestorm for me as well, I think. Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the 118th Vast Imperial Wildfire Squadron!

Now, as to how we're going to handle the squadron XO and Flight Officer positions: This time around, we're going meritocratic. Rather than simply giving those positions to some of our more senior active pilots, I'll be deciding who gets those positions based on individual activity and merit. This is partly an acknowledgment that we're in different stages of our lives right now and rank doesn't necessarily equate to availability. But it's also born out of the desire to find the very best leadership setup possible for our unit instead of making assumptions based on old data.

So, if you want it, all you've gotta do is earn it.

You can do that by 1) actively writing (including the VENA story, any personal stories, and our forthcoming squadron story), 2) being consistently active on the ComNet and in Discord, with bonus points for keeping in touch with our Army brethren, and 3) showing leadership qualities while doing numbers 1 and 2.

What else...? Ah, yes, I do believe I mentioned a squadron story? We're not going to repeat one of the mistakes of last year's effort by being paralyzed by waiting too long. As such I hope to have the first post of our first mission up tonight. So get ready to jump in and sink your teeth into some action! But don't forget to keep being involved in the VENA story as well, and remember that you're more than welcome to write personal and character development stories too.

So keep an eye out in the next 24 hours for Wildfire Squadron: Running Wild!

Gahhh, that leaves my character in limbo, lol. He's still a prisoner in the VENA story.

No, just proceed with him already being part of the squadron. We can get a bit hand-wavy with that, as it's more important to have you involved than it is to have everything lining up perfectly. This isn't happening simultaneously with the VENA story IC in any case.

Right, posted.

Took some liberties with a conversation between Marok and Raigen.

Took Hellfire 12 if it matters, using callsign Dirty if we're doing that.

Msg me on comnet if you need me. I'm on discord as well but cornet is the best way to reach me.

If anyone wants a wingman for this mission, or if they want to collaborate, let me know. I don't know if we're being assigned wingman.

I'm also on linechat and IRC if anyone would like to contact me that way, i have that info for you.

I'm also home most of the day if anyone needs me for writing ideas, info on flight systems, maneuvers, and such.

Okay, folks, here's our initial roster. Don't expect it to stay this way, especially since we're doing XO/FL by merit (thus those spots are NPCs at the moment):
  • Wildfire 1 (SCO): Paxton "Pax" Marok (Drac)
  • Wildfire 2: Trick
  • Wildfire 3: Amacuse
  • Wildfire 4: Maroy
  • Wildfire 5 (SXO): NPC
  • Wildfire 6: NPC?/Empty
  • Wildfire 7: Rocketman
  • Wildfire 8: NormalGuyNamed
  • Wildfire 9 (FL): NPC
  • Wildfire 10: NPC?/Empty
  • Wildfire 11: Slasher
  • Wildfire 12: Raigen

Here's a link to Pax's wiki page so you guys can get to know the character: Pax. He's Drac's nephew- a brown skinned, orange eyed Mon Calamari Warrant Officer 1st Class who's been with the VE for the past two years or so and is just getting to command his first squadron.
