Server Updates – Next Week

Hey all,

Next week the server will be rebooted for maintenance. I am planning this for Wednesday, May 3rd, 2017. The downtime should be around 30 minutes through one hour, but may last a little longer. This will include the NewHopeMUSH game, bot, and website.

On another note, the game and website was also updated yesterday. No downtime was required for that.

Thank you,
Kimojuno.

The Black Market

Greetings and salutations fellow lawbreakers,

Today is a glorious day! We have stolen into the night and found places unseen, unknown, and better yet: Uncared for!

We have found ways that not even security can know, or even care to traverse, for we have been victorious! Join us in our fight for freedom from the vicinity of the idiotic elite! Join us my brothers and sisters, for tonight we buy and we sell, and we drink and we steal, and we thieve, burgulize, and whatever else we shall find to do! The Black Market has arrived on Starbase 900, and our names shall go down in history! Are you with us!?! You best better be.

– Signed,
The Blackmarketer.

(OOC: This post is just a setup for the IC plot that will come when roleplaying opens).

(those interested in joining the Black Market should @mail +market).

New Chargen Options

Hey all,

This is to let everyone know that there are now new options in the Character Generation process. I have added three new schools to the academy: Command School, Medical Academy, and Tactical Training. This are completely optional, as there is also a ‘no specialization’ path as well, which is the way the previous path was (simply waking up on the introship) and moving on like normal.

However, please note, that choosing a special path has benefits: Your character becomes Lieutenant Junior-Grade immediately, instead of an ensign, along with a chance to MASTER certain skills. As with all things, however, there are a few negative drawbacks to choose to continue on to higher education.

STRESS has been known to cause people to forget things they already knew so, with this in mind, can you put at risk your skills? You could become a MASTER in one, but you might suffer from STRESS as well. It is up to -you-, dear player, to choose your character’s path.

To access the chargen – Type ‘+tr’ then ‘sr’ and finally ‘c’. The chargen is currently unlocked to all players, due to testing, but you cannot reroll your current skills (except within one of the special schools).

Have fun,
Kimojuno.

About The Future

Hey all,

Just wanted to take a few moments to post about what changes we can expect in the future.

I have been working on the test game, in order to fully develop what I want from other planets, and how interstellar travel will eventually work. This excites me because it means that Away Missions will be possible and will allow for exciting and different roleplay to occur, once the game is where I believe it needs to be to be operable and ready.

I have also been working on the shuttles and turbolifts, to get everything where I want it, and where I imagine the game can and should be. For now, however, there is still for me to do. I expect that it will all take some time to perfect, simply because I am doing the majority of the work by myself, along with working full time at my job, and as such this takes a significant amount of work to progress and get where I want it to be.

Thanks for the patience,
Jeffrey.

Gameserver Updates

Hello all,

Some updates have been applied to the gameserver, which NewHopeMUSH runs on, and all updates were applied without a shutdown. There should be no interruption to anything, and the game remained running while the updates were applied.

In any case, if you do see anything let me know, but everything appears to be working properly.

Thank you,
Jeffrey.

Sick Days

This week, I haven’t done much other then getting the +bio command to show where people are properly, along with fixing some general background-issues with security (such as allowing people into certain rooms, etc). This is mainly due to me not feeling to well, and taking more naps this week than normal, since I’ve been feeling under the weather and have been tired.

Thankfully, I can feel myself getting better, and the cold leaving my system as the week goes on. In any case, this week has been more of a rest time than anything else. Hopefully, by next week, I will feel more like myself.

Thanks for your patience,
Jeffrey.

Those We Love

Hey all,

This weekend has made me think about some things. There are many things I am grateful for, my family and friends chief among them.

It is weekends like this past one that make me consider how thankful we should all be for our lives and our friends and family that surround and take part in our life.

If we learn nothing else from life, and the lives of those around us, may we learn to enjoy our lives and to partake in the joy of being surrounded by those we love.

LLAP,
Jeffrey.

Leonard Nimoy

Our condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues of Leonard Nimoy. He touched many and shared his life and experiences with anyone who was near.

He was a giving individual and will be missed by all who knew him, along with those whose lives he touched through his acting, his photographs, and his amazing life.

To quote Mr. Nimoy himself,

“I am not Spock, but given the choice, if I had to be someone else, I would be Spock. If someone said, ‘You can have the choice of being any other character ever played,’ I would choose Spock. I like him. I admire him. I respect him” – Leonard Nimoy.
