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!

Good morning (afternoon, etc)!

So, another month has gone by! Phew! Things have slowed down and I expect it to continue to go at this clip throughout the holidays. That's quite alright! I know I'll be super busy, so I don't hold major activity issues against anyone. I rarely do. Just make sure you let me know one way or another. I don't need extreme details, I just want to make sure you still intend to return.

This all being said, it's come to my attention that we're having issues with members viewing the site because of firewalls and blocking issues. After careful investigating, we've determined it's a host issue and the only real workaround is to (once again) move site hosts. This is much easier than our first move around, as all I'd have to do is convert this Nova site to another Nova site. This also allows me to reconfigure a few things as well as potentially figure another layout out, etc. Please be patient, and I'll send out another announcement soon detailing exactly what our plans are. If we take another hosting option, if we need to reconfigure some things, etc etc. Thank you so much for your patience on this matter.

I still say we should keep up our updates, as we can easily convert posts to a new site. I'll be a bit more active over the coming weeks, as I'm about to strong arm some time out of work.

Keep up the great stories and we'll be back to functional soon!

» September Monthly Update

Posted on Fri Sep 20th, 2019 @ 2:05pm by Captain Luka Mahone in General News

Hey all!

So I've obviously been lagging, and I once again appreciate you all for hanging with me on that. It'll take another two weeks before I can maybe resurface? The new job, while absolutely amazing, is also super busy at the moment while the store opens up.

And I absolutely apologize for the disruption to the flow of our story because of all this. I did not plan accordingly, but life blows up in peoples' faces like that, and I intend to move forward.

While I'm in the middle of this transitional period for myself, I'm going to take a suggestion that was made on the Discord (thank you Cam!) to move up with some sideplots. I'll throw some ideas in via the discord in the rumors and plotting channels, and everyone is welcome to pitch in in whatever manner they please.

The timeline for these sideplots should take place between Mission Days 01 and 11, which will be alongside the Canary mission itself. I may throw in for a post or two, but after I throw plot ideas and snags at you all, it's up to you guys! Some of these ideas will revolve around the And please please please don't feel limited by whatever plot grenade I lob at you either. Take this time to character develop, do what you will, but please do so within reason. Aka don't go commandeering a whole herd of daucin and wrecking havoc throughout the town.

I expect my speckled absence will take place just in two weeks. I'll respond as often as I can to what I have, pop in when I can, etc. When I return, I'll do some check ins with players, and we can get the big mission party show on the road! Next month will see an overhaul of some policies and background tidbits.

On another note, Haumea Colony is one year old! A special thanks to our one year members, Becca, Cam, Sean, and Andrew for keeping things alive, and a thanks to those who have joined us after for sticking with it! Here's to another great year!


» 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!
