Greetings to all RPers,
It is my pleasure to announce that, with the closing of season 5 as the USS Horizon's second adventure concludes, Season 6 will officially start on Sunday September 28th.
Season 6 of LF RP will see some important changes in our usual play format in the hope of stimulating even more participation in the game.
1- The first big change will be that I, as RP director, will come up and directly supervise all the episodes. Captains of course will still have complete freedom to handle their ship and crew, but now they will have the same thrills and chills as the other players have by not knowing themselves all the story elements as they used to. Basically, this is the classical RPG format of a Gamemaster bringing the setting and events to all the players and them uniting ideas and talents to face them.
This is not to say however that they loose all their opportunity for creativity and personalizing the adventures of their starship.
2- The second big change in our RP format will be in fact to allow each and every player to contribute ideas, plots and scenes to the story, not just their character's actions, thoughts and dialogs as they used to. It is from those ideas that the story will be built upon, instead of imposing a predetermined one. The goal is to have each and every player bring his or her own center of interest to the forefront, not just play it out with NPCs as we used to. Moreover,it will give more opportunties to have the other players involved as well, as part of the main plot. After all, interactions between the player characters is what RP is all about.By having all players stating what they want in a story right from the start and then throughout the entire play, we hope to stimulate even more and steadier participation, creativity and originality.
The story will no longer be the GM's story but truly everyone's story.
Case in point, the current changes we will experiment all came from our active player base. This trend is what we hope to keep up wether we stay with those changes or not or implement new ones in the future. This gane is your game.
3- The third change implemented with season 6 will be the opening of junior positions on board our ships. Thus, if we have many players wanting a specific position, we will have experienced players assuming senior status (department head), less experienced ones (lower ranking newcomers) assuming one of the usual three assistant chief positions and even some other Pcs take on the roles of specialists assigned to the ship and her specific mission (tailored to their proposed ideas).
This way even if, for example, everyone wants to play a tactical officer on board the flagship, everyone will have the opportunity to play one and in a significant role (and we will have then a veryconflict-based story to be sure!).
4- The fourth major change will be the systematisation of the Junior Officer Cruise for new players. Conceived as a cadet cruise, this will be a starship adventure, shorter but just like the main ones, aboard the USS Alsea, our Prometheus class vessel. These shorter plays will be solely dedicated to help new players experience our RP, adjust to it's style and flesh out their character while they await the end of a story and the return of the main ship they will be assigned to... and before they involve themselves in loner play sessions.
It will also serve as a tutorial after the Academy initiation in the Kobayashi Maru test for those who feel the need to get their spacelegs in our RP.
Older RPers coming up with new characters or wanting more play time than just their main PC will also have the opportunity to participate there as well and guide our newcomers into our unique RP universe.
So, all of you out there who wants to live out adventures in the Star Trek universe, come on and join! Create a character, choose your career and send out your story ideas and interests to me, either via website PM or RP site PM to Kheren, or through Skype to Kherenkalel.
Make sure also that you read the RP Admin message on this section for getting involved right away and the right way. Again, any inquiry may be sent to me directly.
On a final note, anyone who wants to assist me in this fun work and/or contribute in recruiting new or returning players, there is a RP Director Assistant position open!
Season 6 launches September 28 with a roll call of all willing and able officers to report for a brand new mission in a novel format; the opening episode of this new season will involve both the flagship of Lotus Fleet, the Lotus class USS Horizon, and the explorer of Lotus Fleet, the Avenger class USS Phoenix in an important joint mission.
Join us to boldly go where no RP has gone before!

OK, so while I technically warned you that the Fleet Action would be finished 2.5 hours ago as of this post, I have left a final battle post for you guys to post to as long as you feel like leaving the Klingon ships alive! Those who like to post battle scenes, this is your last chance! Since it is a very simple concept (kill stuff) I'm not going to run the enemy ships or participate in any way beyond resolving any disputes that come up in OOC about the story, so feel free to have at it!
I have wrapped up the real important content of the story and left plenty of spots in on multiple posts where you may also add personality and substance for your character in order to have it included in the final... well... novel.
After a year, what more can I say, except, thanks for sticking with us, good job, and see you next season! (in a month or so)
Oh, also, at some point there will be a Non-Episodic story posted to wrap stuff up which will include the awards ceremony, which will also include awards and promotions still to be handed out by Samji for the missions prior to the Fleet Action!
Posted on 12/21/2012 @ 10:42pm by Fleet Captain Allen Samji in RP Announcement
OK, we're a little behind my previously defined schedule, but I had an extra hard couple days so I haven't been able to finish up the story as I intended. I also wanted to give another fair warning 2 days prior to the deadline and I forgot, so this is the final warning.
My plan is to finish the story one way or another by this Sunday evening by 23:59 EST, so get whatever writing you can done over the weekend!
The awards ceremony will be pushed to the days between Christmas and New Years.

The first Undine to be affected by this wave of psionic energy, aboard the inbound Dreadnought, reeled and staggered under its weight. Undines had no frame of reference for minds outside their own that could speak with such strength, and so affected, they became confused and temporarily lost even to one another.…
