Welcome back to Star Army! We're glad you're here again. We get it. Life happens. Let's get you caught up!
This guide will help you see what's been happening while you were away and how to get back into the RP.
The current year is YE 45 (OOC: January 1 to December 31, 2023). The factions of the Kikyo Sector just fought off an invasion in the Kuvexian War. Now a new era of exploration is beginning! Also, Yamatai and Nepleslia have begun the Third Mishhuvurthyar War.
Here are some other recent events that occurred in the last few years:
To get active, edit your member page on the wiki (usually members:YOUR_USERNAME) and change the Player Active field at the bottom of the edit screen to Active, and make sure to start posting on the forum again.
A great way to get involved again without much commitment is to join Open RP threads. You can find them in the Open Roleplaying forum. You can also make your own thread. We suggest posting an interest check in the OOC and Plot Planning forum to find partners prior to starting it. There's also a #looking4rp channel on our Discord server to arrange RPs.
These are the latest topics in the Open RP forum:
You can use your old characters or make new ones. If you're using old ones, just make up some plausible and uneventful history to fill in the gap. Ask Wes or your character's faction's manager if you need help with this.
It's possible that old characters have been adopted under the Character Adoption policy if you said it was okay to adopt them after a year of inactivity. If this has happened and you want them back, ask for the character to be returned in the original character approval thread.
If you can't find your character: Talk to Wes because he may have an archived backup. Note: In 2022 the characters were moved from characters:NAME namespace to characters:FACTION:NAME resulting in a change to their page URL.
