» State of the Sim: 19 May

Posted on Tue May 19th, 2020 @ 8:28pm by Sub-Commander Sehan t'Varis in General News

Jolan tru, crewmates.

As you know, our esteemed CO is currently on extended leave of absence due to health reasons, as he has explained on our discord server. While I have not had word from him, we all hope that he is well and will return to us in due time.

However, in the meantime, the sim continues, and to that end, I have assumed the mantle of acting Commanding Officer. In this position, I will oversee the continuation of our story, as closely as possible to the originally intended plot. I will be aided in this by the two acting Co-Subcommanders, Lt. Kaiae t'Lien and Major Kasca Pilum.

As before, the command team of our sim operates on a fairly flat structure, with all three members more or less equal in position, although the Commander holds the final veto on any decisions taken.

In light of the current global health situation, we maintain our very liberal LOA policy, where 4 weeks LOA is granted upon request, without need for any further explanation; any further LOA will be granted as long as it is justified. However, in order to minimise the number of players to go AWOL, that is, show no activity on the sim without having requested leave of absence, I would ask every player on the sim to check in with the crew on Discord by the end of this week, Sunday 24 May. Anyone who does not respond to this call will be contacted directly, and if no response is received within two weeks, the offending player will be suspended from the sim.

This is just a routine housekeeping measure, that will from now on be performed once every three months, and naturally does not apply to any players currently on LOA.

Thank you for your continued support of this venture, and I am sure we will continue to write great stories together.

Best regards,

Subcommander Sehan "Raven" t'Varis
Commanding Officer (acting)
IRW Ourainavassa


» The Sim is Live!

Posted on Sat Mar 28th, 2020 @ 1:46pm by Sub-Commander Sehan t'Varis in Sim Announcement

Jolan tru, fellow crewmates!

As of right now, the sim is officially LIVE!

(insert cheering and fireworks)

As the current mission states, we are now in the Prologue stage of the story, where the crew first comes together, Raven is hired to help the crew acquire the Ourainavassa, and the colony fleet is first assembled.

Please do use the timeline feature - at the current stage, as we have no major events within the sim to orient events at, feel free to use the year or rough date to indicate when your post takes place.

The purpose of the prologue is to establish who the characters are and what their initial relationships are, before we then move into Chapter One and get the main story underway. To that end, feel free to set JPs at any point in time before december 2386 - when the main story finally begins.

We are all looking forward to this, and I am sure we will come together to write a truly epic tale!

The Kestrel class Runabout floated into the small shuttlebay, gracefully landing with a series of mechanical hisses and whines, coming to a rest before the shuttlebay pressurized. Visible through the force-field was the two Scorpion class attack flyers instructed to fly cover, and provide both an eye as to goings…

T'lan was glad to have finally disembark from Verelan-Hdrael on the Raven's Claw. He was starting to grow impatient for their next mission, and he hated the feeling like he was always being watched. He was a little surprised when it turned out the ship they were boarding was a…

Ash lingered behind as everyone was dismissed from the meeting. Raven's last words to them echoed in her head, We can't leave innocent civilians to extinction just because their own government is not realizing the danger they are in. She didn't know everyone on board well yet, uncertain of anyone's…

The last few days had been hectic. With less than four hours remaining to the Haakona shipyards, Commander Areinnye had received an urgent message recalling her to Romulus, and the Raven's Claw had returned to Verelan-Hdrael to drop her off. Along with the Commander, most of the Romulan crew that…

"Coffee, black, hot." Raven smiled as the replicator in her ready room produced a mug filled with the steaming drink. Installing replicators on the ship had been Gedak's idea, and although they had only managed to install a few of them, they had made life on board the Raven's Claw…
