FallFest 2015 a great success!
This year marked the fifth annual ‘OngoingWorlds Fall Festival‘, known casually as ‘FallFest‘. It is an event that brings together the entire simming community to discuss various aspects of role playing, play trivia games and role play together. We put on the longest running FallFest in the event’s history and packed the schedule full of lots of exciting events and our dedicated radio DJs kept everyone entertained with music and updates from the chat rooms throughout.
We had a huge turnout with over 50 people attending the event! I’ve had emails from several people thanking us for what we put on and telling me how much they enjoyed themselves! Everyone in the wider simming community knows that we know how to put on an outstanding party and I know they’ll be talking about this event in years to come. This is what Charles Star had to say:
The entire team from host club UFOP: StarBase 118 put on another world-class show, just as they did two years ago at FallFest III. I’d like to personally thank everyone who took some part in making it all happen: those who hosted events, those who promoted & advertised, those who played a technical role whether it was graphic design or setting up chatrooms, and those who simply invited a friend to join in on the fun. Thank you all! – Charles Star, in his OngoingWorlds article “The Ongoing Worlds Community Honor now has two more Laureates“
Without the help and support of everyone who put themselves forward – be it providing graphics, helping with research or publicity tasks, hosting a chat session or being radio DJ we simply wouldn’t have pulled it off. We’re really lucky and proud to have such an outstanding support team. To everyone who helped out and everyone who turned up to support us: Thank you so much!
FallFest Helper Badge presented to a great team!
It is my great pleasure to present the FallFest Helper badge to the many people who supported us in organising and running a highly successful FallFest.

Did you miss FallFest this year? Want to know what all the fuss is about?
We kept transcripts so you can read (or re-read) your favourite sessions again and again! You can get pretty close to the real experience by listening to a recording of our wonderful radio show, which is also available for anyone who wants to listen in.

It’s easy for the host of an event to turn around and brandish clichéd slogans about their events. “Miss it, miss out” is a great example of that – a stopgap phrase that works wonders for fluffing out a generic advert that doesn’t seem too exciting. That’s why in this case we need extra letters – miss it and you really will miss out – and I’m even prepared to go the extra mile and tell you why! This year’s fall fest is crammed to the gunnels with SIMming discussions that will help you bone up on your RPG know how no matter which group you belong to, science fiction trivia and live SIMs and our very own Fall Fest DJ, all hosted by UFOP: Starbase 118. Sound like a blast yet? Read on.
Right from the off, things will get deep as UFOP: SB118’s Velana examines some of the best known relationships from the Star Trek television series, leading a discussion on how they can influence your SIMming. Ever wondered what the secret behind a successful mission or episode is? Greir Reinard will be sharing his insights and tips, followed by Jhen Thelev, who will be completing a 118 trifecta with a discussion on world building. Hot on their heels, Silent Hunter of Phoenix Roleplaying will be running a discussion based around the Doctor Who anniversary and our discussions will be rounded up by Jazza from UCIP, who will be discussing the way in which immersive games have influenced roleplaying.
In other words, the discussion room this year is primed and ready to tool you up for the coming year on creating the setting and story for your SIM group, populating it with characters and using a range of sources to add realism and excitement – talk about a shot of enthusiasm and excitement!
Meanwhile, in a parallel dimension (otherwise known as room 2!) there will be more Star Trek and sci-fi trivia than you can shake a stick at, as well as a live SIM that will take the form of a good old fashioned monster mystery. No, that’s not a typo – I said monster mystery! Can you get to the bottom of it before your missing crew members are lost forever?
With our line-up already wall to wall with one-off interactive events that are guaranteed to keep you informed, enlightened and entertained, you’ll definitely want the chance to be there to take part, meet writers from other groups and compare notes about your SIMming experiences – there will even be a couple more events revealed as the week rolls on towards the most fantastic event on your SIMming calendars so stay tuned, watch this space and keep October 11th free – UFOP: SB118’s doors are wide open, the Ongoing Worlds banners are already flying and we are all looking forward to seeing you there! M.I.A.Y.R.W.M.O.!!!!
