Star Army

Star ArmyⓇ is a landmark of forum roleplaying. Opened in 2002, Star Army is like an internet clubhouse for people who love roleplaying, art, and worldbuilding. Anyone 18 or older may join for free. New members are welcome! Use the "Register" button below.

Note: This is a play-by-post RPG site. If you're looking for the tabletop miniatures wargame "5150: Star Army" instead, see Two Hour Wargames.

  • In 2020 we're going to have our community meetings on the second Friday of the month except when those are holidays (Valentine's Day and Patriot's Day). I've added dates to the 2020 wiki page.

Good day all!

I've been pounding a few days already about this, but I wouldn't mind sharing the idea (note its an idea!). But what would everyone think if I made a few guilds/game servers that would ultimately serve the members of Star Army for pleasure and entertainment :) Of course, I am careful with the name used as it is owned by our fearless leader @Wes, but I thought it could be fun to do some gaming together?

For example, I daily play the following games:
Other games I sometimes play:
  • Division 2
  • Minecraft
I don't mind handing over ownership to a SARP admin if it comes to a point I would (don't think it would ever) for whatever reason leave, or hand it over by creation of it. The goal of the idea is to boost our community :D or that is at least my intention :)

I like the idea of Star Army as a gaming guild that does both roleplay on the forum and also games in various game universes, but Star Army is also relatively small and I don't know if we have the membership to support many games. For example Star Army created a Star Trek Online fleet ten years ago and it wasn't able to stay active for long. Also the people who I recruited for Star Army fleet in-game never seemed to join our site. We'also dabbled in shared Minecraft worlds in the past. Also keep in mind that every thing we expand Star Army into has a maintenance cost in terms of having staff/mods there, etc. So basically I'm not against the idea but I'm also skeptical about it being something we can pull off on a long term basis. Maybe it might be better if we have special events instead where we can get everyone in a particular game on a particular date and then go from there based on how successful the game days are.

Mmm understandable, but I would say start small and add if there is interest in it? Plus Minecraft servers are free these days and easy to manages by one or two people. Like I said it’s an idea :)
