"Into the darkness they go, the wise and the lovely."

Ever since the dawn of time, there has been the last flickering of light, prelude to dusk, and the descendance into the Stygian, the utter pitch-black darkness. There are rumors about phantom ships, sirens calling many of Captains and crew to their deaths, and hunters becoming the hunted.

Science is not without its dangers. Man's irresistible urge to venture into the heart of darkness has lead the USS Islandica into the mysterious Erebus expanse where many anomalies await them as they hope to shed light into the unknown. However, one cannot truly study the darkness by flooding it with light. The crew may find themselves faced with the primordial question 'Are you afraid of the Dark?'

» IRC Chat Migration

Posted on Mon Oct 26th, 2015 @ 12:26pm by Captain Farenia Meowlith in Website Update

Due to continued technical issues with Ace IRC, we've taken steps to move chat functionality to a new server that promises better reliability and is used for charities. The info is listed below if you use your own IRC client. Otherwise, please just click on the 'Chat' tab at the top of the page. ^_^ Thank you for your understanding.

Server - irc.ourworldalliance.org
Room - #SWAlliance

» Server Migration

Posted on Sat Sep 26th, 2015 @ 8:14pm by Captain Farenia Meowlith in Website Update

Unfortunately, during today's server migration, most of today's data has been lost. I wish I could tell you where it went, but in the end, half a wiki, several posts, and replies from potentially since midnight eastern time are now gone. The only residue of this data is in your email. If you still have these emails, please reload that data into the system.

If anyone needs me, I'll be crying over a couple lost wiki articles I can't even find a trace of that I wrote this morning.


» Changeover

Posted on Wed Aug 5th, 2015 @ 7:30pm by Captain Farenia Meowlith in Sim Announcement

As many of you have surmised, Command of the Islandica has passed to me, hence the move and all the fun stuffs. If you need anything, please let either myself or Commander Se'lah know. How does this change things? Currently, it doesn't. Please progress as you have been in the current storyline. As it comes to a close, I'll be injecting my own plots and deviations into things. I'll also be using my original character, the Allasomorph Vicky, as a plot push device.

As summer wraps up, let's get writing again and see if we can win a few awards this fall! We have an amazing team of writers here and I'm really looking forward to sharing the wonderful works of art that we create with everyone in the Fleet. (For examples, please see the USS Hera, the other ship I CO.)

As for the official story behind the changeover, Ray and I have decided that his CO character has gone into premature labor and the higher ups convinced her to step down and take care of her kids at a Federation starbase, thus leaving as the default CO a Captain of dubious origins that happened to be on Glebben station tracking down stolen equipment. This changeover will happen just before the away team to Turalek leaves.

Thank you for everyone's support and let's all write us a damned good story, ok? ^_^

» Quick skin updates

Posted on Fri Jan 30th, 2015 @ 9:05pm by Lieutenant Commander Se'Lah in Website Update


With the permission of the CO, I modified only the Wiki sections of each skin in order to prevent the Wiki from suppressing table borders.

Table borders will now display properly in all skins when HTML tables are used in the Wiki. Other areas of the site will still suppress table borders.

Ens. Storme crept through the jungle cautiously. There were so many sounds about him, coming from every direction; animals and creatures of all sizes and levels of danger.

"Ow !!" Crewman Stephens exclaimed as she slapped her knee.

Startled, Theron turned around to see Bree rubbing her leg. "Shh!…

Se'Lah stood on the bridge, quietly pacing back and forth as she waited for the away team's first report. Though she'd sent Mark on the away team, she was worried about him, and she was hopeful that maybe there would be survivors. The only reason she'd sent him instead…

It had been a nice moment the day she'd gotten to work and discovered that Farenia had changed her title from 'Head Nurse' to 'Chief Medical Officer.' As much as Valyre liked Ronnie, she'd harbored some resentment over that; it always felt like she was being punished somehow for being…

I try to like everyone. Really, I do. And usually it doesn't take me that much effort. Having Reen has helped with that... it's a quirky little worm, but generally pretty outgoing.

Which is great, when Reen's behaving normally. With all the education I had to go through to be…
