***Please Pass Down the CoC***


Sorry no story guys....Lets just end TOD3 and start a new huh?

New News:

1.) HC Bio Debate
This debate is still ensuing. Much of HC isd torn over exactly which way to go with it. Basically...we are looking to 1, give the academy COs full accord over their academies wrahter then the ACO. 2, how important it is to have a good bio for each carachter.

2.) TOD4 soon!!!
As some of you or all of you know...TOD 4 will be starting March first. We have a great story set up and a wonderful mission builder signed on to boot. Look forward to the release after 312 finishes on the 28th.

3.) 312 due on the 28th.
The title says it all...No later ppl.

Old News:

1). New Wing & Squadron COs appointed!!!

Congratulation to Argon Viper, Hope Wing CO & Licah Fox, Fireclaw CO!!!
Both are appointed to serve two-week terms of duty, after which, should their
performance meet the expectations of the PBF CO, they will become
permanent promotions. Drinks are on Argon & Licah...

2). By Order of the PBF CO, all COs at any level are required to send a
weekly action report to myself, Fion and Spokes. If you want to get your
XO to do it, fine. But it is the COs responsibility to get it in to the
Slyder prefers to receive them on Sundays, as it it the end of the week.
COs should include things like squad activity in email, flying, projects
done, i.e. Squad ITODs....anything. This is intended to open the lines of
communication better than the PBF CO egroup does. When you send in your
Weekly Action Repart, send it to the three PBF CS. This will start Feb17th.

3). New Uniform Colors. The only suggestion received to date (other than
Gold's suggestion that everything be GOLD) has been Red Uniforms with
a White Sash and Black lining. Comments or suggestions are encouraged.

4). PBF 311 is final. MRMs have been awarded and the Merit Board is

5) New PBF reporting

>From now on when you go to send in a MR, send it to the email address, and cc your squad CO. This will make it easier
for you to send in, by not having to put all of our emails on it.

You have the honor of adding the MRM medal to your signoff:


Please note that the ASCI symbol for the PBF MRM has changed and has been
added to the RS Medals Database. Anyone who has recieved a MRM in the past
and does not have it reflected in their Profile needs to forward a copy of
the MR, if
still available, to BGN Spokes.

The current Patriot Battle Fleet mission is:

PBF 312 "Endgame"

The deadline for the current mission is:

February 28, 2002

You can download the current mission at:

Send reports with pilot files attached to:

Plus your own squadron CO and/or squadron egroup.

The rules for flying the mission are:

1) You may run this mission as many times as you like but you MUST
get the MISSION COMPLETE message and have a valid *.plt file in order
to be eligible for the PBF Medal of victory. In addition, any score
not accompanied by a pilot file for verification will NOT be counted
by the PBF Command Staff.

2) Run the mission as "defect.xwi" ( this will place it as X-Wing
X-Wing TOD 1 Mission 1 ) so that your stats will be recorded in your
*.plt file.

3) Make a new pilot file to run the mission. If you fail the mission
and wish to run it again make sure to use a new pilot file instead of
re-running it with the same pilot. Any pilot file found to be
"unclean" will result in the score NOT being counted by the PBF
Command Staff.

4) Destroying "Friendly" craft to pad ones stats is strictly
prohibited. *.plt files containing "Rebel" craft kills will be
considered invalid.

5) You should also include a written report with your score laser/ion
shots and hits, missile shots and hits and kill totals in the email.

6) Pilot files will be manually calculated using the Official PBF
Standard scoring chart for X-wing. Anyone interested in obtaining a
copy of this chart, can email me to do so.

7) No individual scores will be changed after the deadline! If a
report is submitted that is never received at the report address
given above, it will not be added after the deadline. Neither will
the PBF CO accept a late pilot file. The only thing that can be
changed afterwards are errors made by the Command Staff.

8) There is a Fleet Wide competition based on this tour. Every pilot
who sends in a valid report will receive 1 merit point. The pilot
with the best overall score for the mission will be awarded a special
PBF Top Gun medal, along with receiving a 5 point bonus in the PBF
Merit System. In addition participating members from the squadron
with the best overall combined score will receive 5 bonus merit
points in addition to "Top Squadron" bragging rights. Also, the pilot
with the top score for each squadron (excluding the winning squadron,
and Top Gun) will receive 3 bonus PBF merit points. The reporting
members of the Squadrons on 2nd and 3rd places will get 2 bonus PBF
merit points.

*Note* In the even that the Top Pilot for the mission also happens to
be in the Top Squadron he may only receive the 5 bonus Credits for
one or the other. Same thing applies to each squadron Top Pilot and
2nd and 3rd place squadrons.

9) Mail problems including undelivered mail and corrupted *.plt files
are not the responsibility of the PBF command staff. If your *.plt file
becomes corrupted and you do not include a written accounting,
then your score will be counted as "0".

10) If a pilot retires from the PBF at any time during the course of
an active mission after having submitted a report, his report will no
longer count for his former squadron. He will still receive credit
for running the mission, but will be listed as "Inactive".

11) If a pilot transfers from one PBF squadron to another (such as
attaining a squadron CO position) during the course of an active
mission after having submitted a report, his report will will now
count towards the newfound squadron.
