Standard policy on the Octavia E Butler is that you must write full-time for at least one full mission before your character receives their next promotion, regardless of what rank you begin at. If you arrive mid-mission, then you want to try and begin simming full-time immediately.

Note that being a writer-in-residence aboard OEB for a "full mission" means that you arrived no more than one week after the beginning of the mission. At the end of missions, the CO will present service ribbons to PCs and specific PNPCs as necessary.

Promotion of Player Characters

Promotions occur after the end of missions. However, the timing of promotions within shore leave may vary; most often they occur just before the next mission is set to begin. Your best resource for working toward your next promotion is the fleetwide Promotions Guide.

Before your next promotion, you should complete the appropriate questionnaire from the OEB Rank Questionnaires and send it to the command team.

Aboard the OEB, the Player Achievements system is no longer used as part of the promotion process. However, similar OEB Player Achievements are available, but are just for fun and are not required for promotions.

Keep an open dialogue with your mentor and the command team if you unsure what to do in order to achieve your next promotion!

Promotions of NPCs

Technically, only the commanding officer can authorize promotions IC. However, you may want to promote one of your NPCs or PNPCs at some point if you started them at a rank below your own. You are free to create and promote NPCs up to your current rank. For IC "realism," you can tell your NPC/PNPC that your PC is recommending them for promotion (for instance, if your PC is the chief medical officer and your NPC is a nurse in his or her department), but you are free to then show them in a later sim having been promoted "off screen."

If you wish to have the actual promotion of your NPC/PNPC simmed, talk with your commanding officer, who will be happy to sim with you to make that happen!
