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 2395, 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!

» 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!

» January Monthly Update

Posted on Thu Jan 31st, 2019 @ 2:49am by Captain Luka Mahone in General News

Hello all! Welcome to the monthly update, Nova style!

Obviously the biggest update is that we've moved! I believe everyone's currently moved over as well. Let me know if there are technological issues, I've missed a post, or some other such. And a special thanks to Utopia Host (and Becca, by extension) for getting us rolling! I'm working on importing all the lore and expanding upon that, so over the next week or so expect to see that going.

As for our activity levels, we're working out great. Everyone's in some sort of post, and I know I've got more in the wings to start up. If anyone wishes to throw an NPC in, let me know and we can sort it out. You'll be seeing quite a few from me. Next month, let's blow our counts out of the water and get some great stories set up!

Our plot is rolling along slow but smooth, with our focuses on the Io's Investigation as well as our major plot rolling along. With Diane's new promotion, we're sure to be making some waves!

Achievements and awards will be set up soon, and I'll roll out a smaller update to go along with it. Also anticipate some recruiting coming up, though on the minor angle as we've got a solid team going into the second month of the year.

Thank you all, and I hope February is better than ever!
