Battlestar Galactica: Though Destruction, Perseverance

Two thousand years have passed since the last of the colonist arrived on Earth. In the process of accustoming themselves to the planet, they destroyed the remains of the original Battlestar Galactica and hid the truth of their identity from their ancestors.

However, not all evidence of their existence was whipped out. Journals, ship plans, histories, and philosophies were left behind, hidden in a collection of literature hidden under the Sphinx.

The United States Government decides to construct a new battlestar, named Galactica, in the hopes of exploring the vastness of the universe through the technology of jump drives.

However, shortly after the completion of the new Battlestar Galactica, the Cylons attack Earth in order to whip out the final descendants of the colonist. The Battlestar Galactica escapes the invasion with a full crew and a few civilians taken from Earth shortly before its inhalation. Led by Major Michael Baltar, the Battlestar Galactica jumps away just in the nick of time. As they are pursued, Baltar decides to risk the rest of humanity and return the descendants of the colonist back to the Twelve Colonies of Kobol.

New Guild Sim – Star Trek: Dauntless

Four years have passed since the beginning of the war against the Romulans, and, during that time, United Earth and Starfleet have become the spearhead of the Coalition forces. Entire fleets have been decimated and planets have burned, but the Coalition has held firm. Even as Vulcan and Andorian forces have fallen back to resupply and regroup, Starfleet has filled those roles. It is a time of constant struggle and hardship, as Earth desperately tries to halt the Romulan advance and match their enemy’s technology. Both sides are rapidly approaching the breaking point of both men and machine, but both are still locked in conflict with no obvious victor. Dedicated to continuing the fight no matter the cost, Starfleet has recently finished production of its most advanced warship. The last of the NX-class, born in the fires of war, and carrying with it the resolve of an entire people: The Dauntless.

New Guild Sim: The Dead Fall

From Gabriel “The Writer” Logan (Star Trek Eternity) comes The Dead Fall, a Play by Post Zombie Survival Horror Sim.  The story follows a collection of survivors as they come to grips with the catastrophe around, a world changed forever by the living dead.  Survival becomes paramount as hopelessness and struggle surround everyday life.  While many choose to face this with some semblance of humanity, others have foregone their previous ties and become nothing more than bandits, raiders, constructs of mankind’s deepest moral ambiguity scrapping to find a place in this new world of horror.

Following an Episodic/Season outline, The Dead Fall begins with Season 1’s breakout premiere, “Reckoning Day” Alliances will be made, inter-character conflicts will resound, and a shocking revelation will be revealed that questions the very fabric of existence.

The Dead Fall begins May 14, 2012

If you are interested in joining, please do not hesitate to contact Gabriel Logan (email or PM The Writer) Dan Thompson (email or PM sail3695), join via the FSF website, or contacting the Guild Director FSF Ward(Email) for any assistance!

The Healthy Living Guild Presents: The 2012 FSF Weight Loss Challenge

2012 FSF Weight Loss Challenge

The Healthy Living Guild (HLG) is a group of FSF Players and hosts that have gathered together out of concern of their health as well as the health of the FSF Community at large. In an effort to help the FSF become healthier the HLG is hosting a Fleetwide event.

This event is a Weight Loss Challenge being run in a situation similar to the hit weight loss TV series where the HLG will be tracking participants progress and giving points each week during check in sessions.

The challenge will be open to all members of the FSF.

The 2012 FSF Weight Loss Challenge will start on Monday, March 5th and will complete on Monday, June 4th. Participants will perform weekly check in summaries as well as keep a daily log of their diet and exercise, with points awarded each week depending upon their activity and weight loss. The HLG hopes to create a supportive atmosphere where people will help each other when they stumble, as well as create good conversation about what is working and what isn’t for each individual.

Details about the event can be found on the Healthy Living Guild Forums in a post located here. If you’re interested in signing up for the challenge or have any questions you can contact FSF Who or visit the discussion thread.

In addition to the Challenge there will be a design contest. Along the same lines as past Shore Leave contests there will be a contest also running until June 4th for a T-Shirt design contest. The design should look good on either a Light Colored or Black T-Shirt (please specify) and contain either the words “FSF Weight Loss Challenge” or “Healthy Living Weight Loss Challenge” as wall as the year “2012” . The intention is for each participant to receive a shirt with the winning design, if you would like you may also submit a separate design for the winner of the Weight Loss Challenge as we may provide a separate design for the final winner.

Designs should be submitted to the usual place, File Libraries> Pictures & Photos and contain “2012 WLC” in the title. The final design for the main shirt will be chosen by the contest judges. If enough designs are submitted for the Challenge Winner design, the Judges will pick 3 finalists and the final design will be chosen by the Challenge Winner, unless they decline to do so, at which point the Judges will make the final call.

Further details about the Design Contest will be forthcoming after the Weight Loss Challenge has begun.
