Hi everyone! Thanks for the warm welcome. I look forward to getting to know you all and writing with you.

I would like to thank @Kinvarus for suggesting I ask Auctor about inheriting Alessia from him and to Auctor for allowing me to do so, I will do my best to live up to her current legacy and continuing it. Hopefully Kinvarus will have a speedy and smooth recovery and we'll be seeing him back here one day.

Also a welcome to my fellow newbie @DaValle before ending this inrto with the most important thing of all....

Where are these cookies and are there chocolate chip? :)

Well let's start it.

So first of all thank you Auctor Lucan for this kind introduction and then thank you all for your hearty greetings. I hope that I'll be able to do my part on the Theurgy because I'm 100% sure that I'll have fun here.

Oh and before I forget it. I also hope that you'll recover very soon @Kinvarus but for the mean time I'm pretty sure that @Revan (Hi by the way) will take good care about Alessia.

I guess you've recognized that I'm not a good introduction writer but at least it has nothing to do with the language I'm writing in but more with the brain I'm using... This is not really better or? Anyway you've mentioned cookies! Where do I get those?

COSMOS MEMBERSHIP HAS BEEN TERMINATED

After several tries to reach out over PM on the forum or via Discord, Cosmos appears to have become too busy IRL to keep up with the sim. Therefore, his membership has been terminated and his two characters have been made available for inheritance:

Lt. JG XamotZark zh'Ptrell    Combat Medic (NPC)

  - Former Writer:
Cosmos

Lt. Vanya                     Asst. Chief Science Officer (V2) (NPC)

  - Former Writer:
Cosmos

Is there are any threads in which either of these characters are active and needs some closure, I will be NPCing these two characters until we have an Applicant or current Theurgist inheriting them. Luckily, it seems we have a big influx of Applicants at the moment, so these characters might just get new writers soon enough.

Best Regards,

Auctor Lucan

Just a heads up: I'll be away of town from friday noon to monday morning more or less, so my chances of posting will be narrow. I think the oldest thread i owe post is 1-2 days old, so i guess it won't be a great concern.

Cheers!

PLEASE WELCOME BACK A RETURNING THEURGIST: PATCHES!

Greetings Theurgists!

Today, @patches returns to us after having pulled through a tough period in RL, and she will return gradually, merely starting up with one of the characters she left behind. This, in the form of Chief Warrant Officer Liliana "Meerkat" Walton!

CWO3 Liliana Walton           Wolf-13 [Meerkat]

  - Writer:
Patches

In the Battle of the Apertures, Lily was hurt towards the end of the tunnel run through the Borg cube, and her RIO - Bulkhead - had to fly their Valravn through the aperture from the back seat of the cockpit. Patches will be detailing the kind of injury her character suffered, as well as the damages to the front of the cockpit. She will be waking up in Sickbay instead of being put into stasis, which was the original idea at the time when Patches left us. As for Kino Taer and R'Rori, however, they will have been put into stasis units after the battle due to sustained injuries, and when Patches is ready, they will be thawed and re-enter the story.

Oh attention @Nolan @Revan @Masorin @The Ostrich because this affects your Lone Wolves: Given the demise of Sephiria "Scylla" Arn and the RIO Sehl "Talon" th'Chilnes, and with the return of Devyrie "Dragon" Okhala from her abduction by the Savi, the RIO named Vinnie "Fury" Ferris will return to be Devyrie's RIO since they have longer experience together in the cockpit. Meanwhile, Sephiria's Andorian RIO - Asav "Whiteout" Th'rehrol - will become Alessia "Angel" Garcia's new RIO. If you are confused by this paragraph (which is completely understandable, lol), just check the bottom row of the Squadron Org Chart, where Meerkat will remain Flight Leader for the four remaining Valravn fighters (which makes the most sense IC).

Welcome back @patches ! :)

Best,

Auctor Lucan

Heyo everyone.

Just a heads up that I'll be away from May 25th to June 7th. I'm going to be working out of town on a large contract and as it involves setting up the IT systems in several offices, basically building networks from the ground up with only the internet already running, my days will be busy. And as we're pre-building the networks before I go out on the contract, the next two weeks (till I leave) I'll be slow responding to tags as we're working 10 hour days (sometimes 12's) to get everything done and ready for this contract.

MORE INFORMATION ON ALDEA AND THE SHIPYARDS!



Today, more information has been added to the database about the Aldea Prime Shipyards, the city of Aldea Prime, and the Aldeans themselves. This info should prove enough to help you all write your characters outside the Theurgy starting on March 11 in 2381 (the first day they are docked for repairs):

Aldea Prime Shipyards

The City of Aldea Prime

and... the Aldeans

You will be able to read more about the different areas your characters can visit, but there are some important things to bear in mind if the Aldeans are going to let your characters enter the city. First and foremost, they have to be unarmed to be let into the city. They may, however, bear arms in the shipyards, but then only in the line of duty aboard the Theurgy. If your character is a security officer, they can bear arms if their specific assignment or task requires it, but there is no reason why a scientist, a pilot or an engineer - for example - would wear weaponry in the shipyards (just like it is aboard the Theurgy).

If the Theurgy crew can't follow the rules and leave their weaponry on the ship, then the Aldean Defence Committee might decide that visitor's right to Aldea Prime will be rescinded for everyone on the Theurgy.

BUT HOW DO WE BLEND IN?

A Federation tricorder can emit an alien lifesign. Likewise, the Theurgy crew will have been given their own Aldean hexagonal communicators, which will have the same kind of feature. The communicators will be able to mask the life-sign of the wearer so that Humans may appear to be Aldean gestalts (see the Aldean page). Humans will therefore be posing as Aldeans, and that means they also need a false identity. And, such false identities will have been distributed to the Human crew of the Theurgy by the Aldean Defence Committee. You decide what kind of alter-ego your character has on the planet. The communicators will, of course, replace the combadge your character normally wears, having the same features installed so that they may be contacted while down in the city.

What about other species? As you may read on the pages, aliens are allowed to trade or work on Aldea, but they need paperwork for it. Your non-Human (looking) character would have to have a trading license for specific goods, as well as a false identity. Again, the Aldeans will distribute this, and the data will be available in the aforementioned Aldean communicators.

How about money to spend? As you may read above, the Aldeans use a currency named Stars, and a considerable amount of funds will be added to the communicators. Cash currency looks like latinum coins, more or less, with the Aldean logo on them, and can be withdrawn on the planet if so needed (but digital currency should suffice.)

Aldean stars are good to use in the Aldea Prime Shipyards as well, be it in the Aldean barber shops or the Klingon bars. Oh, and Aldean dresses (chlamys ) can either be replicated or ordered at an Aldean tailor shop, for those who are to pose as Aldeans.

LET'S GET STARTED!

I hope this information is enough for you all to work with. Please also read the OOC message in the pinned thread on the Aldea board, named Aldean Dawn. There, you can find departmental information for your characters.

Please, wrap your threads in the Epilogue and move over to March 11 and the Aldea Prime Anthology when you are ready to chill!

Oh, and there will be away missions and plot ideas posted in due time, but don't wait on that. Start up your character-based plots and find writing partners!

RANDOM ENCOUNTERS - ALDEA PRIME ANTHOLOGY

Here is the result of our new Random Encounters lottery! We did this in Interregnum 03-04 too, opening up for opportunities of character interaction one might not expect. Please bear in mind that while these threads may be posted tomorrow or months from now, both writers have to agree to ditch a random encounter.

Better yet, it is encouraged that encounters may be traded among yourselves instead. If you have been paired with two characters of your own, you may also trade with a different writer in the same position. This happened to me as well with Thea being paired with Dewitt, but I may have solved this with Triage already, who had two of hers paired too. :)

The location (third column) is a part of the challenge, to come up with why they would encounter each other there, but if you can't come up with a reason for the listed location, you can consider the location optional.

Hope you like the pairings, and if not, you may still like them when you actually come up with an idea and write it out!



Have fun! The progress of this list will be followed up over time.

EDIT: Some switches made, and some due.

Best,

Auctor Lucan

Looks like Liliana Walton will be meeting Sithick at Holodeck 5 and Dyan Cardamone at Glorious Song of Victory (klingon bar, shipyards). I'm finishing up the last of my finals today so I'll reach out to you two over PMs here or you can just start a thread and I'll post later this week.

IM seeing Miles and Zyrao meeting in the glassed walkways on Aldea Prime.  And Miles meeting with "Ens. Shall" In a resuturaunt on the Shipyards.

Due to the whole Necessity for fake identities and all that Miles Alias is that of Todd MacLeod,  Dossier shows him as a pilot (Escort, or transport/cargo) for hire who makes side money as a bounty hunter.  The dossier will show that he left the Inari system and the Rolor Nebula shortly after the Vulpinian civil war ended becoming a spacer and taking his years of experience in the Vulpinian civil war as a means to make ends meet in the wilds of space as war experience was quite a good experience for the kinds of person who is hired to keep pirates from seizing your ship.  His record shows that he began turning in bounty's as a consequence of the wanted pirate ships he destroyed in combat as an escort pilot.

Yes I know what I chose for an alias and I regret nothing...

Hey Gang!

Just wanted to reach out, as I've got a certain zappy boi who will need introducing to the story at one point during the anthology, and I wanted to just reach out to see who was interested in being a part of that.

There's been a lot of talk of pirate attacks/hunting pirates and the such, and since Otheusz is a pirate, it seems that a thread along those lines would be an ideal place to introduce him.

Now I don't mean that we need to do any threads immidiately, but if anyone happens to have any thoughts along these lines, do let me know, and we can perhaps look at setting something up.

Hope everyone is well in other news, and that all of our new arrivals have been settling in comfortably? (Always reccomend that you check out the discord group, it's actually pretty fun)

I'm up to help you with your zappy boi introduction! Of all my characters i think Khorin is the one with more chances to meet him, or maybe Bila if he try to reach the black market for.... "reasons"

Feel free to reach me in discord to brain storm a bit? maybe we can put a full Wolves/squadron on this if other writers are game too :)

Cheers!

When it comes to scheduling times for these random encounters, what is our time frame?  From Stardate what to Stardate what?

Hi! Check this earlier announcement for which dates are available right now: https://uss-theurgy.com/forum/index.php/topic,1002.msg22221.html#msg22221

There, you can see that the pinned post at the top of the board has important OOC information, among other things the dates of the first week at Aldea. Only the first week is available now.

The Random Encounters, however, can happen week 2, 3 or 4 as well. No rush in other words! :)

Best,.

THE THEURGY SIM 8 YEARS OLD THIS WEEK!

Since it's hard to count by day since the creation of the sim was a process, this is still an anniversary for us, in how the Theurgy sim is now 8 years old!

I don't have any fresh and fun ideas on how to celebrate this occasion, but if I come up with something, I will let you all know. Also, I am welcome to any ideas you all might have too. For those who have yet to see it, it could be worth checking last year's anniversary post, which featured a lot of our character art. As for now, having arrived to Aldea and our shore-leave after Season 1, my suggestion is to make the most of this time to build upon your characters and have fun! We've already started up the Random Encounters, generating a lot of new threads for the Aldea Prime Anthology, but we have yet to start working on away missions and on-duty assignments. Those will come too, of course, but to begin with, it could be a good idea to explore off duty story potential first.

Suggestions for the 8th year anniversary can either be PMed or posted here, or you guys can chat on Discord about what you feel might be fun, :)

THANKS TO ARISTA, ALL CHARACTER PAGES ARE UP TO DATE!

While the Crew Manifest was updated with new positions and rank at the onset of the Aldea Prime Anthology, the work to update all the wiki character pages lagged behind a bit. Luckily, @Arista found the time to help out with this, and all characters aboard the Theurgy should now have their correct rank, position and service record listed (in those bios that have service records listed). Thank you @Arista for helping us all out!

I would have announced this earlier, but I am currently also editing the intro texts on character pages so that it no longer says "it is unknown if X would help the Theurgy against the parasitic threat in the 24th century", now instead saying that they serve on the Theurgy.

Please bear in mind that you all should take the time now and then and update your character pages. Some, like @steelphoenix and @fiendfall , even take the time to add threads in which their characters were featured in the story, but this is optional. If I were to add such lists with threads, it would be a lot of links, but it does look great. Check out the character pages of Morgan Song, Hathev and Deacon.

That's all for now! :)

Best,

Auctor Lucan
