Born and bred for war, the starship Eucharis carries its small crew to new adventures and dangers. She is a unique ship with a dedicated captain and crew. Her missions range from simple exploration to fleet combat and special ops-style infiltration. Eucharis role-play occurs on the forum (linked below). Its Game Master is Wes. Each player is expected to post at least once every two days and to subscribe to the RP and OOC threads.
The Eucharis plot has run for over five years. Created December 19, 2007, it continues the legacy of previous plot ships including Nozomi, Sakura, Plumeria, and Asamoya. Its sister ship is the YSS Aeon.
The Eucharis plot is the winner of the 2012 Simulation Cup's Outstanding Original Sim award1).
Thank you for this great nomination we got for the 2013 Squiddie Award:
“The Eucharis is, in my opinion, one of the bests plots within SARP. It almost always has a full player base which allows for a more in depth role playing experience. The GM is always quick to throw in more things for the characters to do, combat for them to get involved in, and daring missions for them to complete. The tasks given to the crew are some of the most unique that are seen on the site. Recent missions have been to infiltrate an enemy “Nest” via its waste storage unit (that got interesting), to locate and rescue a duplicate of the ships’ Captain because when the Captain was thought to have died they made a new copy from a memory backup however the previous wasn’t actually dead, and to deliver political refugees to a faction that had rebelled from the Lorath and seceded only to find that the rebel separatists had been ethnically cleansed by the Lorath. Lastly, the plot facilitates lots of character development through spouts of downtime, usually occurring around the Christmas/New Year’s season. This allows the characters to do whatever they please without fear of an incoming mission. This year’s activities by the crew include such things as shopping sprees to the mall, courting between two of the crew members, visiting home and family, technologies designing, personal ship building, etc.”
YSS Eucharis is currently located in orbit of HX-12 II.
