I'm moving to Key West!

2 weeks ago
Hello dears,

On Monday, August 5th, I'm hitting the highway and changing addresses.  I expect about a three day road trip to get from New Hampshire to the Florida Keys, and I don't have my new home lined up just yet, so I'll be AFK for a bit while I get set back up.

This is happening with short notice for me as well, but at the same time it's long overdue.  I first moved to the Keys at age 18 and called them my home until almost the age of 30, and I've missed the part of the world where I've felt most at home.  It's time to stop wandering and return home.

Once work and an apartment have been secured and I'm able to log back in and do some gaming, I'll have plenty more to look forward to.  I anticipate finally being able to use a microphone and talk to all you lovely creatures in the Discord, because my computer will no longer be in someone's living room.  I'm also probably going to change my forum name here; Kobek, my Cardassian Captain, quickly fell by the wayside in favor of my Gorn Captain, Saazsha.  I'll think of something that will cause less confusion.

If I don't see you in Fleet Chat this weekend, have a happy one.  I look forward to logging back in from paradise.

--Danielle

Nagh'reD Fleet Uniform Contest!

2 weeks ago


presents:

Nagh’reD Fleet Uniform Contest!


QaleghneS, honourable warriors!

I ask you, what is the most important thing for a Klingon warrior in battle? Is it the fulfillment of bloodlust? Or maybe the screams of the petaQ’s you cut down with your bat’leth? Drinking a barrel of bloodwine with your fellow battle-siblings afterwards perhaps? Or maybe, just maybe, the pride in your Par’Mach’kai’s eyes as they fight at your side?

Well, all those things might be what makes life worth living for an honourable Klingon warrior, but none of that is possible without a proper uniform! A uniform is honour! A uniform is glory! A proper uniform shows your Par’Mach’kai that you bring honour and glory to your House!

Now, our current Fleet Uniform...


In order: Tactical, Engineering, Science


Although still good looking, is several years old. And thus we, the Department of Klingon Affairs, thought it was a fun idea to hold a contest for a new fleet uniform!

https://www.stonewallgaming.net/photos/145398

For the next two weeks (up until Saturday the 17th) all fleeties are allowed to participate by posting their submissions in this thread. Read up on Voleron's Guide to Uploading & Using Images in the Forums! for posting screenshots!
Then starting on Sunday the 18th, all fleeties can vote on their favourite submissions in a separate thread. How the voting works will be explained in the new thread. For now, let’s focus on participating!

https://www.stonewallgaming.net/photos/145400


The contest rules are:
- Only the use of the Bortasqu’ Warrior parts is allowed. Wrist Attachments, Shoulder Pads, and Collar are optional, but if you use those, only the Bortasqu’ Warrior parts are allowed here as well. The Right Hip Attachment “Klingon D’k tahg Dagger” is allowed (but optional) too.
- There need to be three variants: Tactical, Engineering, and Science. There are no rules on which colours to use - you’re only limited to the current available colour template.
- You are allowed to participate multiple times, but only your latest submission will be counted.

You are free to show off your submission however you want to. Screenshots are fine, but so is a video or a gif.

All submissions must be posted by Saturday the 17th of August at midnight (EDT timezone). This is 4 am UTC. Any submissions after this time will not be eligible for participation in the contest.

Second Place - 5 SWC’s and a Bortasqu' Mirror Outfit!
Third Place - 4 SWC’s
Fourth Place - 3 SWC’s

KeyBay - STO & more giveaway Codes

3 weeks ago
Not so much a giveaway as a free-with-purchase thing, but here it is:

Green Man Gaming (https://www.greenmangaming.com) has a sale where buying one "Gold" level game (the cheapest of which is around $6) gets you several incentives, one of which is an "Intel Starter Pack." Redeeming that code at https://softwareoffer.intel.com/Redeem gets you an Arc code for an "Intel App Pack" which includes:

Temporal Starter Pack
  • T1 Constitution
  • Temporal Battlecruiser [T6] - Paladin Class
  • TOS Ripped Uniform
  • 0718 Bridge Officer (Unlockable once per character)
  • Title: Temporal Agent


There's also a Female Federation Orion Science Bridge Officer, but that's only claimable on one character.

Hello again fleeties!

I've been away since February due to plain old game burnout, but the 217th Rule of Acquisition (you can't free a fish from water) started nagging at me so I'll start to be online a bit more. I half expected to have gotten booted out of the fleet for inactivity after that much time, but it looks like @Zander_Hawk just assumed I was cloaked and didn't notice I was actually gone for that long.  :P

I'll probably ease back into the game slowly since after 6 months I'm sure to be rusty (not to mention having the time), but I've missed STO and you all, so I will be online here & there. I've actually been jumping on for about 5 minutes a day this month to get the Risa Corvette tokens, but that's really been all.

Rather than my Ferengi main I'm most likely going to be playing my TOS "kinda-sorta-but-doesn't-really look like me IRL" toon the most to start with, since I finally got that TOS T6 Connie I've been lusting after ever since it came out, hooray! And it's not one of those JJprise or Discoprise mutants either; it's the old-school originator, not the imitators (crewed with the TOS holo-boff set, natch). I thought that Voth boat I didn't really want was never going to sell, so imagine my delight when I logged in yesterday to find a message saying that it finally had! 

Anyway I've prattled on more than Morn after a few drinks, so I'll STFU now and see you in-game!

Swearing - an apology.

3 weeks ago
What? Moi? Kind? Surely, you jest. 

I do not have a kind bone in my body and my feelings were surgically removed years ago, rofl.

All I did was point out a little bit of truth. And isn't truth supposed to set us free?

You're alright in my book. And I can afford to be picky about who I say that about.

Thank you, Thunder, that was very kind of you.  It made my eyes malfunction.
I shall ponder what you have said.

Swearing - an apology.

3 weeks ago
Why are you apologizing for this? I see no good reason for you to do such a thing. 

This isn't on you at all. Or at least only on you. I swear. A lot. As in I have been asked upon occasion if I flush my mouth before I eat with it. Does not bother me at all to exercise a little restraint and decorum around you. I am glad to do so on your behalf. Because I benefit as well.

In fact, doing so is very good for me.

What was Colin Furth's line from Kingsman? 'Manners maketh Man.' Yeah, that is it. Great line.

Language is a precision instrument. Whether in spoken or printed form. If I rely upon F-bombs to express everything I think or feel, my thinking becomes sloppy. My emotions become one dimensional. And I become just like nearly everyone else on the internet.

One more thing: 
I get irritated when people apologize for being themselves. Regardless of how or why they became who they are. The only person in all of the human race you owe any sort of apology to is the person you look at in the mirror every morning. As long as that guy is okay with who you are, the opinions of the rest of us count for less than nothing. I cannot speak for others here, but you owe me no apology for being yourself. 

Read that stuff you posted on Discord about when your 'adult life' began. You tried to help another human being out of a bad place they went into. This makes you a force for Good on the planet. It also makes you someone I proudly respect. Most people would not even try in such a situation. You obviously made a sincere effort despite the odds against you. I may have read too much into what you posted but somehow I don't think I did. Bravo and Well Done for making an effort to bring someone back into the Light. Especially these days. When so many just walk by and then publicly condemn someone for failing to help themselves when they are unable to do so.

You go on being you. Suits you to a "T". And if anyone gives you grief about it, call me. I'll provide backup. And may God have mercy on their soul. Because I can guarantee I will not.

Swearing - an apology.

Greetings.

Today in therapy one of the things we delved into is my dislike of swearing/cursing.  I've always had it.  I am a tad reserved on some counts but for this, we concluded that it is a trigger to some of my childhood trauma.  

That is on me and is my problem, though, nobody else's.

So to anybody I've ever annoyed with comments about swearing on Discord or in-game, I apologise.  Whilst I would hope we don't have too much of it, I shall do my best to just ignore it from now on.

Thank you.
