EuphoriaMUSH Soft ReOpen!
Seven months ago, the UPS Euphoria was just waking up to disaster. The ship was off its course, they were being attacked by strange human-bug hybrid aliens that seemed hell bent on killing them. They had encountered a supposedly friendly avian-human race that communicated with the help of Lost Milky Wayians from a ship lost generations past. Something was unsettling about the way these Lost people spoke and acted, but their Xayian counterparts were willing to help the ship through their territory and continue their way.
The bug race: they declared, were the Li'scor, and they had been at war ever since they had found the human ship on the edge of their space. The Li'scor attacked those lost milky wayians, whereas the Xayian saved them and brought them to their home world.
Moreover, since everyone was awakened at random and way ahead of schedule, most of the ship was not fully in working order. Many of the Civilians and Naval Officers banded together to get things up and running, but their efforts were often interrupted by Li'scor attacks. Still, the peoples from the Milky Way are nothing if not persistent. And they pressed on.
Over the last seven months they have fought a grueling, vicious battle against the Li'scor to get through their hunting grounds and onto the other side. Lives have been lost, parts of the ship badly damaged, and countless of supplies destroyed. Still, wounded and limping the United Planetary Ship Euphoria has made it out of Li'scor territory and has found an expanse of desolate, empty space. They have parked themselves in the shadow of a Red Giant to energize their engines and begin repairs.
Meanwhile in the background the civilians of the ship have gotten as much of it up and running as they could. A thriving garden and farm are available. Kitchens, restaurants, and artisan ships have now opened. It isn't quite fully operational, but the ship has far more amenities than it did seven months ago.
For now, ... the crew and passengers take a deep breath, and let out a sigh of relief. They're out of hot water, and it remains to be seen if they're moving on into the fire.
Welcome to the Euphoria is a Sci-Fi space exploration game set on a ship that got attacked by previous unknown (Li’scor) aliens while on its way to the Andromeda Galaxy. Escaping that first attack caused them to jump off course, and everything has gone downhill since then. The Li’scor used an electromagnetic weapon that messed with the cryosleep technology aboard the ship and caused people to be woken up at random and out of order.
We are re-opening after a seven-month long hiatus to soft RP. We are shifting to focus only on Star Naval officer PCs at this time, all civilians are currently in the background. During our soft RP period we are going to tighten up background theme (such as information on custom content worlds, house rules, and etc), wrap up plots off screen, and fill out the grid and amenities of the ship. As well as in general just recalibrate and theme of the game.
For the next three OOC weeks I will be working on wrapping up plots that were left open-ended when the game previous shut down/idle out. If you are a returning player who would like to have done a specific thing in one of those plots, please contact staff which what you wanted to happen. If you are previous player not planning to return but would like closure in said plots—feel free to contact staff, as well.
Lastly, for the next three weeks I will also allow previous civilian PCs to have been ICly field-inducted to the Star Navy under Captain Rose’s authority as cadet rank characters, to allow them to be played. This will be a big change to those PCs and resigning back to civilian status if/when civilians become available should not be considered an option.
New players will see a clarified chargen and application process as well! And starting in April a new metaplot with a specific focus will start up! Come see us at: Euphoriamush.com or login via a client at: euphoriamush.com:2020
TL;DR: EuphoriaMUSH is reopening after a long hiatus with a focus on military PCs. Soft RP will begin with the ship being under repair after a long fight through enemy space. April will see a more full open/metaplot beginning to be run. Civilians may for the next three weeks become cadets in the navy. If you want closure for past plots on the game contact staff.
I'm a moron. Ahem. If you had a civilian character you want to log into to have them drafted into the star navy, please make a temp character so I can reset your character's password. :X I didn't realize setting someone to 'gone' reset their password because I don't read helpfiles like an idiot.
