Exclamation OtherSpace: What's Happening!

Just thought I'd share a quick summary of what's up these days on OtherSpace:

* We've kicked off our month-long summer celebration, which culminates on June 28 with the 11th anniversary of the game. My plan is to mark the occasion with the opening of the first new world on the grid: Hekayt Prime.

* We're offering badges for all players who participate on the game this month, plus extra badges to our sponsorship players who contribute toward server costs, marketing, and re-caffeination. Use PayPal to send donations to jointhesaga@gmail.com

* We've started the first roleplaying "belt" achievement process. Green Belts and Blue Belts have been issued. This weekend, we move on to Yellow Belts.

* Reode has provided several illustrations of our new races, including the Llivori, Gankri, and Hekayti.

* Overall story-wise: The formation of a government on Aukam known as the Koltkamir is creating a new threat to the Outversers who now make their home on Comorro Station. Ribas Salek, a Llivori freighter captain, has been exiled from his homeworld because of his outspoken disapproval of his leaders caving to the Zar of the Koltkamir. Silvereye Paintedheart, Comorro's Minister of Outverser Affairs, is trying to broker peace between the Koltkamir and the Hekayti. Interesting times!

* Special offer: New players are invited to apply as survivors of the lost village of Roanoke on Earth. Lost in a rift in space-time, taken to Hiverspace 2650. Offer ends June 30.

* Crafting: Armor, weapons, and crafting components are done. I've got to wrap up gadgets, schematics, deedgivers, and NPC player butlers. That should take up much of this weekend.

* Website: The site at jointhesaga.com is still undergoing renovations.

* Twitter: If you'd like to follow my misadventures on Twitter, you'll find me at http://twitter.com/DougPiranha - being a follower is good for a badge.

* Facebook: Are you in the OtherSpace Fan Club on Facebook? OtherSpace | Facebook - It's good for a badge.

Re: OtherSpace: What's Happening!

Normally, this race doesn't show up much among the worlds in the realm known as Hiverspace. Lately, that's been changing. Besides the humans who now travel aboard Comorro Station from the 31st and 41st centuries, the Kamir-caused rifts in space-time have brought through other humans from Earth's 21st Century and the lost British colony of Roanoke.

Our special promotion for humans in July 2009 is three-pronged! You can choose from a soldier from either side of America's Revolutionary War, a would-be victim of the bombing of Coventry in World War II, or a pilot who vanished with Flight 19 in the Bermuda Triangle.

Clean Slate Day

On Wednesday, June 24, we've scheduled a Clean Slate Day. This means if you've ever left (or been asked to leave) OtherSpace under less than pleasant circumstances, you have the opportunity to come back and start over. Maybe things will work out better. Know someone who might qualify? Let them know.

Turning up the heat in space!

Currently, when a player reaches the threshold of 100 badges on their +sheet/badges, they're eligible to receive 15 RPP vouchers, worth 3,750 RPP. But we're making a special offer that's good until Labor Day 2009: Earn 100 badges and get double the vouchers, worth 7,500 RPP. You've got the rest of the summer! Good luck.

Exclamation Re: OtherSpace: What's Happening!

So Colchek, the guy who brought us the popular JTS badge system, has done it again. But this time, it's IC! The new medal system works a lot like badges except that you earn them for activities that take place on the grid. And the other twist? Players get to craft their own medal ideas and submit them for consideration.

First, how the main system works:

* +listmedals: Shows the available medals and their reputation value.
* +sheet/medals: This shows the current medals in your case
* +sheet/medals [name]: This shows the current medals in someone else's case.
* +medalscore: This shows a list of people who have earned IC medals.

Now, here's how player-created content comes into the picture: We want starship captains and other leaders to come up with their own medals to award to their crews. So, you can hire a metalworker (or do it yourself) to craft a medal mold (it's under Gadgets). NOTE: It costs 500 crafting minutes to make one of the molds. Post an +str once you've got the name and description for what the medal means. If the staff approves of the submission, we add it to the database of medals. When you're ready to reward the medal ICly, just +str and we'll handle it manually after you complete the scene.

You may now commence with the +kudos for Colchek!

Exclamation Re: OtherSpace: What's Happening!

The psionic spider-like aliens known as the B'hiri are now open for applications. With the B'hiri, we're trying something a little different. These aliens are capable of shifting gender as the need arises. The females are better attuned to working with psionics, engineering, electronics, and other practical skills. The males are better at combat, on the ground and in space.

When you're in female mode, you get +2 bonuses to psi and other practical refereed skills. You can still try to participate in combat, but you do so at a -4 penalty.

When you're in male mode, you get +2 bonuses to combat-related skills. You can attempt to use psi and other practical skills, but you do so at a -4 penalty.

How do you change gender? Simple! Spend 50 RPP in the Player Reward Services vendor to get a B'hiri Gender Switching card. After you play the card, a ref updates your +sheet with the proper gift. That gender switch is permanent until you switch again. You can only switch once per day.

But what if you want all the benefits of being male AND female? That's possible too! Spend 1000 RPP for a B'hiri Transgender Berserker card and for one scene you get a +2 bonus across the board to all skills, psi, combat, and practical.
