Good Morning Blacksmiths!

This is our weekly update pertaining to what's happening this week at The Forge.



RPG-X News:

Brand New Day will be launching Saturdays at 15:30 EST (20:30 GMT) Go Check it out!

It's set in the transitional period between 23rd and 24th Century, while the Federation is coming down from their years long cold war with the Klingon Empire. Ran by our friend Stringtheorist, it looks like an interesting series, and I for one look forward to playing an unusual Vulcan....

Nova will return this week I was planning on airing it on Friday, but Fridays haven't been good days for me lately, so I intend (since Brand New Day hasn't started yet) to use our normal Slot. Join us Saturday, November 16th at 13:30 EST (18:30GMT)

If you have any interest in running your own SRP - that road is open to you! This thread details how to go about getting yourself set up: https://www.theforgegaming.net/forum/index.php/topic,19.0.html



Space Engineers News:

The server has been reset to our standard survival configuration. So hop on and make sure your creations are still in place.

The Second Great Battle of Colony Alpha is coming soon. Considering the time of year, and my RPG-X and Orville Plans over the next month, We'll probably pick it up sometime in December before Christmas :)

Last thing of note, expect a semi-sorta schedule for Holiday events posting soon. With any luck, we can carve out some time to play some games around the same time that we carve our turkeys :)

Let's have some fun!

Good Morning Blacksmiths!

It's been too long!

Nova will return The Friday after next (November 15th) for a special episode, that will focus on a parallel universe where the Federation is never formed after the Earth-Romulan War. Should be a nice special :)

With the Holidays coming up, I know it can be a crazy busy time for people, I also know that it can be a low time as the days get darker (literally) and people like me who don't like people, avoid them at all costs :P

with that said, I'm going to try to plan a number of holiday events between now and the New Year. The idea being, I want to create a fun, welcoming place for all of us to come take part when we can, or come take part when we don't want to do anything else.

Simply stated: I want us all to have a fun, enjoyable and love filled Holiday Season. Please know that I love each and every one of you awesome nerds, and I want to work to keep us happy, and entertained throughout the season.

Pierce's Pancake Palace / Klaw's writing a book

Good Day one and all

I wanted to take a small moment for some self-promotion (something I really don't like to do) but I want to share a taste of something that I'm working on.

A few months back, I had this idea in my head about Tolkien's Middle Earth in the Future, which sparked a conversation about Star Wars is the Future of Lord of the Rings, which led me on similar tracks until finally, I found myself in this universe of magic and space ships.

Then I started writing.

I'm nearly at my quarter mark for my tale, and I'll be going back and polishing the intro and first 5 chapters after I hit it, but I'd like some feedback - and thought I'd share the intro to see what you all think - take your suggestions, and who knows, maybe I'll release other sections down the road :P

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1GCyfF5Mzatae6gvQ2bDsqqiYEwYmZeOZba3iKB-pzKY/edit?usp=sharing

I'd love to discuss this universe, so if you have questions about the setting, or just want to talk - hit me up! :)

I hope you enjoy this taste of my madness.

Anyone up for this next weekend? Or maybe the Weekend of Nov 22nd?

Ladies and Gentlemen. I firstly want to take a moment and say, I'm back to fighting strength! I'm ending my LoA, and I'm getting back on the crazy train. Over the next few days, I'm going to work with the Ops Team, our Community Advocate, and a few of you all to help get some shenanigans planned for the coming weeks, and get us all back on track :) Stay Tuned for more

in the meantime, here's an overview of the Weekend's Shenanigans:

Tonight, 11/1/2019:

17:30 EDT (21:30 GMT)  - Pegasus Returns! Join the crew of the Planetary Union's most dysfunctional ship on her return (Which jokes will be made about our long hiatus... it's going to be a fun night!) Here's some General Tips, Tricks, and Treats to help knock the dust off our excitement.


Tomorrow, 11/2/2019:

Nothing is formally planned this week BUT...

Brand New Day is a series that will be launching soon. Set in the dawn of the 24th Century, BND will explore the lost era between Star Trek VI and TNG. I can imagine we'll see a Klingon Empire being reborn on the heels of the Khitomer Accords, a Romulan Empire testing the waters for their expansion, and a Starfleet that's slowly coming out of the age of "Cowboy Diplomacy". (Or so I'm guessing - String's running the series :P ) Go check it out!

Also - I've got a hankering for some Space Engineers... you can probably find me on the SE server a little bit tomorrow, and if you wanted to join in, and blow stuff up - come on by! :P

Sunday, 11/3/2019:

Again, nothing on the planning board this week - but let's keep our options open. I mean... "nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition..."

Let's have some fun this weekend! The fires are warming up again, let's get The Forge going again!

Firstly, note the time slot! This will air on a Friday Night, and will not count against you in any negative way if you are unable to attend.

See you all on Saturday!

I wanted to do something fun, to get us back in the swing of things. So we're going to examine a parallel universe where the Federation didn't form at the completion of the Earth-Romulan war. It's going to be a different kind of world. I'm still working out how we're going to execute this.

I hope to make this a start toward our full return - though our timeslot will likely shift due to our new series, Brand New Day. We'll sort all that out in the weeks ahead.

For now! I hope to see you all back in a couple of weeks :)

Star Trek: Nova
Episode 7 - The Road Not Taken
Mission Start Date: August 16th, 2161
Airdate: Saturday November 16th, 2019 at 13:30 EST (18:30 GMT)

Nova's Escort Mission is taking an unexpected turn, when an Ion Storm forms in the convoy's path. Moments before the convoy altered course to avoid the storm, a crew and cargo transfer from Nova to the Polaris found itself in trouble, as the personnel have not materialized on Polaris, and their patterns are now missing...

Character Name: Torvek
Character Model: Seklom (I know he's Romulan.... but he's Vulcan :P )
Desired Positions (Please list with most preferred first): CSO, CE, XO
Any backstory: Torvek is a different kind of Vulcan. He follows an order similar to the V'tosh ka'tur, but with more restraint. Torvek lost his eye in a moment of overwhelming emotion when he found himself in a fist fight with a group of Klingons on Rigel. He wears his scars proudly, as a reminder to himself to maintain the balance between emotion and logic.

I wasn't sure how to frame this, because I don't see this as an episode, just a fun little RP back on the Pegasus where we may get into some shenanigans.

Ultimately, I'd like to try to start getting back into the flow of things, and I want to start with this baby step on Friday.

Hope to see you all there for the Return of the Planetary Union's Strangest ship, The Pegasus.

Star Trek: Nova / Taking a small break from Nova
October 18, 2019, 12:53:35 pm
as some of you may have noticed, there's a new series coming - and it's kidnapping Nova's timeslot.

This is a wonderful thing! and Brand New Day looks fantastic!

Go and check it out!

I *hope* to be back to fighting strength soon, but at the very least, expect the following:

A Thanksgiving Special (near/around Thanksgiving in November)
A Holiday Special (Near/around Christmas time)
A New Years special (near/around the first of the year) - (which by that time at the latest, I hope to be back full time :P )

Anyway, Go check out String's project! https://www.theforgegaming.net/forum/index.php/board,48.0.html

I keep *trying* to come back and keep failing. I am sincerely sorry. Going to step back, and give myself a little more time.

meanwhile - please keep up the fight! :) I'd love to see some shenanigans on the docket soon that I'm not organizing :P

*sigh* Thanks to some car troubles - and a cold and rainy weekend (apart from today) I'm not going to be able to run this today :( (Gotta fix my car)

Star Trek: Nova / Episode 7 - The Road Ahead

Star Trek: Nova
Episode 7 - The Road Ahead
Mission Start Date: August 16th, 2161
Airdate: Saturday October 12th, 2019 at 15:30 EDT (20:30 BST)

Nova and the rest of the cargo convoy are a little more than two weeks into their journey. The voyage is long and dull - cabin fever is already starting to affect the crew.

Chef is working tirelessly to keep minds occupied, and spirits up. Organizing events ranging from a series of epic scavenger hunts, to nightly movies in the mess hall.

It's a long way to the Xindi, and there's really no telling what's waiting for them around the next corner.

Friday Friday Friday!
