Greetings to all of your fast-fingered forum fanatics! It’s time for you to heed the call to arms as UFOP: SB118 extends its reach to two of the most high profile active Star Trek forums on the internet – Star Trek and Star Trek Online!
To keep our name where people can see it, we need to post material that will keep our threads near the top of the list. Doing that is an art, because we also don’t want to annoy people by spamming irrelevant things, or with the ever dreaded *bump*. Fortunately, every single one of us has the best possible resource: our characters!
So how can you help? Well, it’s a lot easier than you may think. Once a week, you can head to our threads below and post your character’s “personal log” for the week. Not only will this keep our thread somewhere where it’s likely to be read, it will also allow people from the Star Trek and STO communities to see what it’s like to write with the UFOP: SB118 fleet – and quite frankly, how could they resist? You can find our Star Trek.com thread here http://www.startrek.com/boards-topic/33381056/ufop-starbase-118-recruiting-now and our Star Trek Online thread here http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/showthread.php?t=851961
It’s also possible that we might get questions from forum users – if you see one that hasn’t been answered yet then feel free to answer if you’re able!
Of course, if you’re interested in joining the publicity team to help promote the group in other ways as well then please mail Fleet Captain Diego Herrera and you’ll be added to the team quick as a flash!
Thanks everyone – let’s get those personal logs pouring 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.!!!!
