Hey guys and girls... good and bad news.

I have my pc back up and running unfortunately I still have my corrupted C drive to sort out. I plan on doing that monday.

The bank sorted out everything.

The bad news is I am away from my pc on the weekend due to a convention. So I'll be unavailable until monday night. I apologise to all my co-authors that I haven't posted yet, I will next week.

I'll check in when back home... Have fun!

SCIENCE & SOUL AWARD NOMINATIONS


While the voting for the Inner Light Award and the Pakled Order begin today and last for 3 days, we also open up for nominations for two new Awards!




This is dedicated to a writer who mines Stark Trek canon for technical or cultural details, or built an species that truly stand out in originality. To read posts from this writer is to feel as if one is walking in the shoes of a real person in the Star Trek universe. Details should have long-lasting effects on the Theurgy story as a whole.




This award is bestowed on a writer who demonstrated extraordinary character development and depth of writing. The character's plot goals are long-term with life-altering changes.



Here is the thread where you post your nominations:

You may also submit your nominations anonymously via PM to me. I look forward to read your nominations! :)


SADLY, AHARON HAS TO STEP AWAY FROM THE SIM DUE TO RL COMMITMENTS




I got a message from Aharon the other day, saying he has a new job, a leadership position and is putting in 50 hour work weeks on the regular. He loves the job but is too drained and is no longer able to keep up on his reading and writing. Furthermore, he said Vinata needs someone that can commit to the character and that is not longer him. He said that in no longer being an active enough part of the sim, he cannot write Vinata to their potential.  It is not a decision he's come too lightly and he truly do love the character.

Thank you so much for your time writing in the story, @Aharon , and while it is sad to see you go, it is quite understandable.

As for Vinata Vojona, our last remaining Ovri aboard, I find myself wanting to take up writing him myself for a bit since I have NPCed that character off and on over the years between writers, and with Jennifer Dewitt being in Breen space for the foreseeable future, I'll have Vinata take her place, and I'll see how it goes. There are other reasons too, like in how there is a connection between the Ovri and the Savi that I find worth exploring.

Moreover, Vinata has been a part of the Theurgy story since Episode 03 of Season 1, and the task for successfully convey a synopsis for inheritance is quite a daunting thing all on its own. The character has been through a lot, and with the changes he's undergone personally over the course of the mission, ranging from his sister leaving the ship to what the Savi did to him, and how he might choose to identify himself henceforth, is quite a lot to ask of a new writer, lol.

Wish me luck!

Best Regards,

Auctor Lucan

Congrads!

Seems odd that the researcher's medal has a fed/kdf battle scene on it?

Oh this is what is happening! 😄 I'm humbled and appreciate the support. This is only possible because of writing partners willing to spare time and creative energy to invest themselves in the character development process as well. Thank you and congrats also to Tae.

Award Poll: The Scourge Award 2021

Furthermore, nominations for two new Writing Awards are now open until the 2nd of December, where two separate polls will be posted soon afterwards for the two award categories and their nominated scenes respectively. This time, the awards are these:




Often we see the completion of a character's life; yet this character's story has a beginning, a middle, and an ending. The writer not only willingly self-terminated their character, but did so in a dramatic and/or endearing way. The ending must be in "a blaze of glory" with superior epic or poetic quality.




This award is nominated by anyone, but only handed out once every year to the most outstanding writers in the sim.

Hey folks. I just want to quickly apologise to those of you who are waiting on me. Suffice to say that life has gotten rather interesting lately, and I've been struggling to spare enough energy to pour into my keyboard. I should (knock on wood) be able to catch up soon, barring an unexpected broken bone, a random meteor strike or a spontaneous nuclear apocalypse.

Good day Theurgists!

With the recent round of high intensity hostilities over, we take the time to remember those who have fallen.  To that end, the Memorial Wall is being updated.  At this time, the following names have been added.

Commander Ranaan Ducote
Lieutenant Commander Blue Tiran-Ducote
Lieutenant Zephyr Coral Praise
Lieutenant (JG) Jonas Arisaka (NPC)
Lieutenant (JG) Alessia Garcia
Ensign Kyle Jensen
Chief Petty Officer Amlas Keyah (NPC)
Chief Petty Officer Eun Sae Ji
Chief Petty Officer Morgan Song
Petty Officer First Class Jean Paul Rivard (NPC)
Petty Officer Second Class Taa'gur Kolla

This list is far from complete as the Library and Records Department is currently investigating and compiling data on all those that need to be added to the Wall.

To that end, Library and Records asks that any crewmembers with knowledge of those who have become honoured dead, please PM this account with the name and circumstance (posting) with which that person died, and the Memorial Wall will be updated accordingly.

Thank you.
