SevCol 15: This was a Triumph

Dear crew members, ship security, specialists and passengers, SevCol is proud to present its first on-site role-play event of 2021 (and 2020): SevCol 15: This was a Triumph, on the 25th and 26th of September!

We have found a cool new location which we will put to the test with this event! This does mean that we cannot sleep on site, and as such we can provide sleeping arrangements with other players and organizers living nearby.

We will start the larp on Saturday, but we offer the option to arrive on Friday evening. This would mean time for socializing with your fellow larpers, help for us with preparations, and possibly time for simulator practice. It will also allow you to be on time for the early start on Saturday.

The event will only take place if the then-current Covid regulations allow multi-day events without a 1.5m social distancing rule and without mandatory face-masks. You are of course allowed to practice any personal safety measures you want. We do urge people to please register if you plan to come, and register early. Both for the peace of mind for us as organisers, and so that we will not have to cancel the event due to a lack of interest.

The Celestra has completed its tasks in Alpha Centauri and has traveled back to the Solar System. It is about to dock at SevCol station after a small delay (or two…). The news reports and messages that have reached the crew so far seem to be troubling, both on a personal level as well as on an interplanetary level. What new mission will there be for the Celestra, and how will the situation on Mars develop?

SevCol Online 3 – Return from the Stars

Dear crewmembers, ship security, specialists and passengers, SevCol is proud to present its second role-play event of 2021: SevCol Online 3 – Return from the Stars.

This will be our third online event. This event will still be entirely within Discord, and once again, it will take place aboard the Celestra.

The larp will take place on Saturday April 17th, starting at 10:00, and continuing (with a soft ending) at around 17:00 or earlier. There will be a 30-60 minute period of no plot for lunch at around noon.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++

After an almost uneventful journey, the Celestra arrives in the Solar System. Many news reports have already reached the crew about the state of the colonies in the Solar System. The long journey to SevCol station, orbiting between Earth and Luna, allows plenty of time to catch up on current affairs. The Celestra’s course will take it past most colonies in the Solar System, allowing for real-time communication between friends, relatives and other contacts.

Dozens of ships seem to be holding their position.

SevCol Online 1 – The Universal Challenge

Hello everyone,

First of all, we must disappoint you. It seems extremely unwise to us to organize a physical event in the foreseeable future, because we simply cannot guarantee that we can keep a 1.5m distance, while at the same time having fun playing AND fitting into a physical location.

What we can do, and what we’ve been planning not-so-secretly for a while, is an online-only SevCol event.

What: An event in the SevCol universe, where you can play your own character (or someone else).
When: Saturday, May 30, from 12:00 to 17:00.
Where: From the comfort of your own home.
How: With Discord, Empty Epsilon, and a lot of creativity.
What does it cost: An afternoon of your time, and zero euros.
What if I can’t participate?: No problem, regard this online-only event as a side quest (optional, but fun).
I want to know more: Cool! See the IC announcement below, and keep an eye on the new “Universal Challenge” channel on the SevCol Discord server (https://discord.gg/fKsEeF2).
Do I have to register?: Yes please! You can do it here: https://forms.gle/6qvRpJ9XKRNjWmGa9. If you have registered, you can talk to your fellow players in the ‘Contest-Chat’ channel on our Discord.

Hi there! This is your favorite quizmaster, Hansel van der Breeze! It’s quiz time!
Time to forget about the nasty news for a while, and join me in one of our regional challenges!
Will your team become the regional champion, and join me and the other winning teams in our studio on Earth? Are you capable of beating all competitors? Then join up for:

= The Universal Challenge! =

To participate in the challenge, you must sign up individually. You have to have a room where you can be alone, to prevent co-operation, which would of course be blatant cheating! Just before the start of the preliminaries, you will be assigned random team members from your region, and then you will face off against the other teams in several dazzling challenges! As a simulator will be needed for some of the challenges, a computer is required to participate. And a quick and creative mind is required for all tests!
Shall I see you soon, in your own regional challenge, and then in the flesh in our studio? I’m sure I will!

SevCol 14: Trouble in Paradise

Dear crewmembers, ship security, specialists and passengers, SevCol is proud to present its third role-play event of 2019: SevCol 14: Trouble in Paradise.

This time, SevCol will start on Friday! We will be using the same event times as 7 Realms, as we will also be using the same location as 7 Realms. Thus, we will start on October 18th, Friday evening (time-in at 20:00), and end on October 20th, Sunday afternoon. The event will be held at the scouting terrain Skoltaro in Eibergen. Play will be both inside and outside, as there are options for people who want to go and explore the forest. However, there will be enough to do inside as well; not everyone has to go outside.

We expect that sleeping accommodations will be similar to what we’re used to, with us being able to accommodate pretty much everyone inside in the IC areas (indoors). There is also an option to bring your own tent (IC or OC) and sleep in there.

Please note that we absolutely require 25 paid registrations by September 27th, as well as at least 5 people to help on the Friday before the event with the preparations, for the event to proceed.

The miner problems on Kordoss seem to have been mostly fixed, and the problems with the space elevator seem to be pretty well under control.

But, those responsible for the destruction of Customs 3 are still out and about, and where has Dr. Henry Cotton been taken to? The trail leads to Eden, and the passengers of the S.C.S.S. Celestra are in pursuit.

While apprehending Doctor Henry Cotton and turning him in at SevCol station Customs-3, a situation has developed on the mineral-rich world of Kordoss.

Clashes over claims and bad blood between UAC and independent miners, supported by well-meaning benefactors, have resulted in several deaths and untold damage. The Celestra is sent to investigate and, if possible, resolve the situation.

While docked at the Kordoss space elevator, the view outside the airlock is one of unrest, accusations and anger.

After careful detective work on both Luna and Callisto, the crew of the Celestra has determined that the much sought after geneticist Henry Cotton is likely to be found somewhere on Lucis. They decided to pursue him, following the trail of clues.

But who else may be on the trail of this doctor? And what consequences may the doctor’s research have on the lives of humanity? Do we even want such knowledge out there? The crew of Celestra is journeying out towards the Worlds of Light to find the answer to possibly some of these questions.

Meanwhile, other troubles are brewing in other places in the Alpha Centauri system, as troublesome reports from Kordoss are hitting the news. Workers are speaking out about the terrible working situations in the mines and the heavy industries the planet is known for. As the workers are speaking out and uniting against the companies’ upper management, more are joining their ranks, creating a ruckus which might even lead to a great revolt.

With the Celestra now available for employment, several potential employers have presented themselves covertly. Amongst them, the Earth Intelligence Agency INTEL, and SevCol. Both groups express interest in gathering information on the Jovian Moons.

Two months after leaving Luna, the crew gathers on SevCol station to figure out their next move.
