Haumea Colony

A Play-by-Nova roleplay game.

Welcome to the Haumea Colony!

Located on the surface of an uninhabited planet known as Xaeprea, deep within Beta Quadrant, Haumea Colony holds many wonders for the budding scientist, the intrepid diplomat, and the wandering adventurer. As a joint venture between Starfleet and the Federation's many civilians, there is a bounty of opportunities for those who wish for a change of pace and a chance to take a piece of what could be a brand new lifestyle!

Haumea Colony is a Star Trek roleplaying simulation set in the year 2396, and is a proud member of Task Force 72-A within Obsidian Fleet. Here, we try something a little different; player involvement not only through simulation play, but also through overall plot input. On Haumea, we strive to give players a chance to actually help mold the storyline, working together with the Staff so that everyone is having a good time!

» July Monthly Update

Posted on Fri Jul 19th, 2019 @ 2:13pm by Captain Luka Mahone in Out of Character

Hello all! It's only ... two thirds through the month, and I've got some updates for you!

First, we have our new welcomes!

- We've got David, who's playing Cornelius Warner, Head of Silver Tongue Brewing!
- Dan will play our Logistics Manager, Jessica Stevens!
- Rachel is our final arrival, and will be playing Mousian Chief Support Craft Pilot, Miracle Swiftpaws.

Both Cornelius and Jessica mark two more civilian (mostly) arrivals, while Miracle marks our first player-made race!

Second up, Mission Updates!

I'm going to keep Snow Birds open for a little bit longer, but not by much, as the Vesta has moved on in her timeline.

As for Deep Freeze, we're just waiting on another post or two to finish up, and we'll be finished with the final bits of 2395.

Canary posts are in progress, and I intend to keep to timeline as listed in the mission notes. As I'm trying to be a little different with this mission, events are a bit... loose, past what's listed. And we have a new image too! Woo!

Over the next few days, I'm going to go in and properly date the missions based on year (and maybe month, but let's not get ahead of ourselves).

And Our Final Drumroll... Obsidian Day!

I should call it fleet announcements. I dropped the ball on poking at people to nominate for Obsidian Day awards, but that doesn't mean I can't announce Obsidian Day itself! For those who may not know, Obsidian Day is a day-long celebration of the fleet's success and a collaboration of great ideas via a discord channel in the main Obsidian Fleet discord. The event's details are located HERE for any interested parties. If you want a link to OF's discord, let me know and I can throw an instant invite your way.

Phew! That should be all this time around. As always, you can catch me in the discord or anywhere else you know I lurk!

» June Monthly Update

Posted on Mon Jun 3rd, 2019 @ 9:31am by Captain Luka Mahone in General News

Hello all, it's that time again!

We've done really well last month, especially with the return of Sean and the addition of our new member Kim! And our post count was pretty spiffy too, but each of those posts were quality!

Unfortunately, I come with some bad news too. Both Conchy, player of Shurlok, and Dwina, player of Alex Flynn, have resigned from the simulation for the time being. As always, they're more than welcome to return, but their writing travels are taking them elsewhere. We did also lose our Chief Microbiologist, Jackson Parks.

In others, much more positive news, I'm going to move us onward to our next mission in the next week or so. All we need is one or two more posts to wrap up Deep Freeze, and we'll move onto Canary. I'll release the information for this once I have it, so keep an eye out on the discord and in the Mission Notes section. I'm gonna try something a little different, so bare with me as I do.

I've also been hiding the achievements from most of you, and I apologize for that. That, along with Obsidian Fleet awards should be updated soon. I do intend to update as much as I can this month so we have a better idea of some of the items you've been curious about, such as housing and the like. If you'd like some input, or need to know what x, y, or z is like, please let me know! This is everyone's simulation, and I'm more than happy to incorporate everyone's ideas.

That should be most of the big stuff. I'll keep everyone posted as we keep on, as per usual. Have a good June!

» May Monthly Update

Posted on Fri May 3rd, 2019 @ 11:06am by Captain Luka Mahone in General News

Good May everyone! Two days to Cinco de Mayo, and a happy wonderful month. I've settled in (mostly) to the move, with a key bump in the way, but I hope to get myself back to full operation in the next few weeks.

LOAs are still ongoing, but I anticipate we're going to be having a shift soon that will require a lot of recruitment. If you have anyone who's interested in any of our open positions (or something more), please throw them a link to the discord, or send them my way. I can recruit till I turn blue (and will start doing so), but word of mouth tends to be the best method of recruitment!

Site wise, I'm trying to get some more technical aspects out of the way. The site skin may change over the next few months as we shift it toward a more traditional look, and I'm going to try to add more articles and information about the colony and the technical specifications surrounding it.

Mission and story time! So, as mentioned, I'd like to try to get Deep Freeze mostly completed by the end of May, so we can move onto greener pastures. Our next mission is not yet titled, but I'm hoping that it will dive deeper into Haumea's lore, and I'm excited for it. Please let me know if you want to assist. Once I have details, I can get it all going.

Finally, I'm going to go ahead and put up some promotions to post-mission positions. Namely that Sean (player of Sera Williams) is going to officially be our XO (which I believe I've mentioned). Also, while we weren't looking, Luka has been elevated to Captain. The manifest will reflect that shortly.

Thank you all, and many great posts!

» March/April Monthly Update

Posted on Thu Apr 4th, 2019 @ 2:16am by Captain Luka Mahone in General News

So I'm throwing in March with April this month to make it easier and update y'all on some important stuff.

First thing's first, you'll find that Groundwork has officially been closed. I've already taken a peek, but if anyone has a Groundwork post still in the works somewhere, you'll have to backpost it in Deep Freeze.

Also opened up is a mission called Snow Birds. This mission is not officially a Haumea mission, but instead a shore leave with our Task Group's flagship, the USS Vesta. Effectively, this shore leave propels Haumea into Obsidian Fleet's canon year, 2396. No one is required to post in Snow Birds, but instead this serves as a log of posts that myself and Becca will make with the Vesta's crew. This also serves as an excuse for me to tie up plot points that will briefly be touched upon in Deep Freeze, such as an official IC promotion of Haumea's Executive Officer, etc etc.

Which reminds me! At the end of Deep Freeze, I will be taking the liberty to make a couple of IC promotions. Some of these will not be spoiled in the slightest, but most prominent of which is the I'm officially naming Sean, player of Sera Williams (formerly Diane Kent) as Haumea's Executive Officer. This will not occur until the point in time mentioned above for sake of sense making and the like, but when we get ourselves all situated, he'll have just as much say as I do. Everyone be good!

In other news, I've officially added the Silver award we've won for February, and I'm going to take the moment to say that I'm proud to be CO of such a good group of people, and I hope we're able to make plenty of wonderful stories together. There's going to be a little bit more minor housekeeping points that I'll make over the next two-three weeks.

Finally, more of a heads up than anything else, I'm moving at the end of the month. Some of you have been made aware of this fact already. Starting the 23rd, I will no longer be on one end of town, but in another. There's going to be an adjustment period that is an indeterminate length. I don't anticipate it being that long, but it will be however long it takes for me to get the internet set up and myself somewhat unpacked and readjusted. I'll be reachable via discord, but there will be a minor downtime on my end for posts. I'm hoping to set everyone up for at least a week's worth of updating while I'm away.

That should be it. It was a doozy this month and last, but better this news than no news!

» February Monthly Update

Posted on Wed Mar 6th, 2019 @ 6:46pm by Captain Luka Mahone in General News

Wow late huh?

So the short month of February was real nice for the Colony. We had a grand total of two new members (I know I said three, but we had a reasonable drop). I will be removing the character shortly, so if anyone knows of a player who wants to play CMO, invite them! Or else Luka is gonna doctor it up muahahahaha!

In other news, our major mission plots are a bit slow going, but if that's the pace we all end up ok with, I'm not going to push it. Numbers are always nice to look at, but so long as we're all enjoying ourselves, I would much rather that. The mission will ramp up after I get my computer back to running status, but expect some updates and some plotting coming your way soon.

Onto a rather different set of news, I've got some promotions in the works toward the end of the mission. The most important to note is that I've chosen an Executive Officer for an IC and OOC standing. Sean, player of our current Chief Ops Officer Sera Williams (and Diane Kent, by extension), will be filling out that role on both fronts. ICly, Sera will be promoted by the end of the mission.

That's all I can think of right now, thank you much and let's keep up the good work!
