November 7th: SevCol R & R

After the exciting and exhausting events on LC-247b, it is time for some R & R !

Every year, the famous shipping magnate Archibald Laurow invites the new recruits at SevCol Academy for their spring break. The cadets are flown to the Big Rock Candy Mountain Hotel, Laurow’s five star luxury resort on de Martian moon Deimos. Here, they will spend a week resting, recuperating, relaxing, and recreating. The trip is quite popular with the Academy’s students; not only because the resort is known for its extreme decadence and debauchery, but also because the trip is a good way to land a job on a Laurow Lines ship after graduation.

Interested midshipmen should report at the MUSS Archibald Laurow, currently docked at SevCol Station. Upon demonstrating their status as student, they will be allowed free boarding for the ship’s trip to Deimos. The ship has limited capacity, but there will not be that many other passengers, as it is currently off-season. Tickets for the Earth System – Deimos route are extremely cheap during early spring, indicating a low demand for this passage.

SevCol 2: The Mystery at LC-247b. September 5th, 2015, Amersfoort

We are happy to announce the second SevCol event, that will take place on a railway yard in Amersfoort !  A small and agile spaceship will be built using two real-life trains, generously made available by the Stichting Historisch Dieselmateriaal. The ship will be used for an in-game mission to find out what happened to a mining colony on asteroid 4179 Toutatis. What is the reason for the sudden loss of all contact with the colony ? Pirates ? A labour strike ? A corporate takeover ? Or perhaps a catastrophical technical failure ? Join the mission to find out ! It will be a one-day event, focussing on what-you-see-is-what-you-get roleplay in an immersive science-fiction environment.

Location confirmed for the next event

We are glad to announce that we have secured a pretty neat location for the second SevCol event on September 5th. We will be able to use a real life train ! The vehicle is a retired NS train, based in Amersfoort, that we will convert to a small, speedy spaceship, specially suited for a scouting and salvaging  mission. We are very excited to have the opportunity to use this special location, as it will enable us to create a real immersive experience.
