Welcome to the USS Arcadia NCC-89015!

The USS Arcadia is an award-winning RPG simulation, a proud member of Task Force 21 in the Obsidian Fleet. Here at the Arcadia we don’t just write; we tell stories. As such, we value character development and interaction just as much as we do story progression. Our players are encouraged to develop their own side plots that would shed more light on the history, inner thoughts, and personal growth of their characters. And we do everything we can to help you integrate your own stories into the main story line.

Look around. If you like want you see, come and join our next adventure! If you have any questions or just want to chat, feel free to get in touch with us using the "contact" link from the menu to the right!

Commanding Officer, USS Arcadia

Obsidian Fleet, Task Force 47 "The Avengers"

Current Mission

Truth vs Lies. Justice vs Vengeance. Federation vs . . . Federation?

The Arcadia rescues the USS Themyscira and her crew, refugees from a dystopian future, where the once proud Federation had succumbed to fourteen years of devastating war. Captain Nami Ishikawa, commanding officer of the Themyscira and a woman whose past is inseparably intertwined with Oliver's future, details the dark days that are to befall the Federation, but there is something even darker that she hides. Will the crew of the Arcadia find out her true mission before it is too late? Is there a price too high for justice? Is there a price too high for saving the Federation?

I regret to announce that Fred is stepping down from the XO's position due to the demands of his other commitments. I'd like to thank him for his untiring support and contribution to the sim over the past year,and I wish him all the best in his other endeavors.

I'd also like to announce the return of one of our former players Ryan, who will write for Lieutenant Commander Johannes Adlerstein. Ryan played the MCO and then the XO when we were still the Bunker Hill, but later had to resign because of RL issues, and I'm thrilled that he is now returning to the sim. He will take over the XO's position from Fred as of this announcement, but in character Hans will not become the Arcadia's XO until Episode 4 concludes. Both his arrival and I'lien's departure will be integrated into the story. So stay tuned and give him a big welcome!

Yesterday was Memorial Day here in the States. To all who have served and continue to serve their country, including those in our own Arcadia family, a belated thank you for your sacrifice and for your service. Thank you for keeping all of us safe and free.

On another note, I have been sick since the weekend, but will get back to the JPs either tonight or tomorrow. Sorry for the delay.

I regret to announce the removal of Lieutenants Post and Kir, our MCO and CEO, due to prolonged lack of communication. I understand that sometimes things happen in real life and I wish them all the best.

On a more positive note, Bill, who plays Corporal George Charles, has taken up the now vacant position of the Marine CO with his new character Captain Jackson Werner (George will now be his NPC and still available for JPs!). And I'd like to thank him for stepping up.

» Episode 4 Begins!

Posted on Thu Apr 27th, 2017 @ 2:58am by Captain Oliver Lee PhD in General News

With the publication of the JP "Prologue: Inner Voice" and its tied-in flashback post "Idols and Whispers" - more on flashback posts later - Episode 4 "Truth, Justice, and Federation Way" has now officially gone live! =D

Since several of the saved posts still take place in the time frame of Episode 3.5, I'll keep 3.5 open for another another week or two so that those posts can be published under the correct mission title. All other posts, however, should be published under Episode 4. So please double check whether your post is under the right mission title before sending it out.

Due to the nature of our simming, it is inevitable that some of the posts will be published out of the order in which they take place in-story; a suggested reading order will be one way to help keep the in-story sequence of events clear and legible. I'll soon begin updating the suggested reading order for Episode 4. You can find it in the Mission Library under Starfleet Database, which is what we call our built-in wiki. You can find the link to Starfleet Database on the top of any page on our site.

To help keep track of the sequence of events, we will adopt a standard format for time stamps starting with Episode 4. Generally, a post's time stamp should consist of three parts: 1) a 24-hour clock time, 2) a mission day, which should be abbreviated as MD, and 3) a sim date with month, day, and year in parentheses. Our current sim year is 2393, and Mission Day 1 of Episode 4 will take place on March 3. So a typical time stamp would look something like this: 0945 Hours, MD 1 (March 3, 2393).

The clock time doesn't have to be absolutely precise. It's just there to help establish which post happens first, which happens next. And there's no need to lose sleep over which clock time to put down. If you are not sure what the exact time is, or if you think it would be better for story-telling to leave out the exact time, then just leave it out, in which case you will only have the mission day and the sim date in the time stamp (although I do expect that most of the posts dealing with major story events will have all three parts). Another exception would be flashback posts, which might only have a year, or maybe even something as vague as "x years ago," or "some time ago," etc.

Speaking of flashback posts, due to the nature of our current mission and its close connection to the previous major mission, i.e. Episode 3 - A Future That Was, there will be a number of flashback posts that provide the necessary background information on the alternate future that the USS Themyscira comes from. That way, you won't have to go back and read all the posts from Episode 3. Most of these flashback posts will be tied to a post that takes place in the present in order to showcase the effect that alternate future had on the actions, attitudes and thoughts of the Themyscira crew.

I realize that sometimes I have a penchant for complex story lines and plot structures. I'll do my best to keep things simple and clear, and the aforementioned reading order and time stamps are one way to that end. And please do not ever hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Also, I'm always open to suggestions and ideas, whether they are story related or not, so if you have any in mind, just send them my way. I'll really appreciate them. The Arcadia is a team effort after all. =)
