Canonical Battles

Canonical battles at Artemis Armada will actually become part of the Artemis canon. Your mission will be recorded on video to become a historical document in the Artemis universe. For these missions we want good crews, yes, but you should look like a starship crew (uniforms and/or makeup are a plus) and speak as though you are making history. The US Navy has historic lines like “We have met the enemy and they are ours” and “Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!” and “I have not yet begun to fight!” We want articulate crews that are good at improvising speeches and striking poses that might be carved into statues. In your application experience with acting, lecturing, or other performing will be considered a plus.



The Battle of Elihu 12

(Dreadnought in The First Spiral Arm War)

This was the decisive naval battle in the First Spiral Arm War. A small TSN force with Torgoth support elements defended a sector against an assault by ten Arvonian carrier groups escorted by the finest Skaraan elites that money could buy.

Why this crew is awesome enough to take on this mission:





Operation Ocelot

(Light Cruiser in First Torgoth Incursion)

The TAK Alliance has established an Arvonian logistics base relatively close to the front lines. This is a tempting target and both sides know it. Your mission is to penetrate enemy territory, destroy the base, and return in glory. If you fail it will set back the war effort by months or years.

The Sirius Feint

(Battleship First Spiral Arm War)

Your crew has volunteered for a suicide mission. Your antiquated Battleship is to be the flagship of a fleet that will attack a major enemy stronghold. Your fleet is composed of small picket ships disguised to look like capital ships. The real TSN fleet is a hundred parsecs away, laying a trap for the enemy. Can you hold out long enough for the trap to spring? The fate of the war hangs in the balance. For this mission your crew is considered expendable.

This is awesome to see what the missions will be about.

The Torgoth helped (suported) the TSN in the first spiral arm war?

How many people also like the sound of "The Sirius Feint"? Not sure about being considered expendable thought [tongue] .

Will signups continue through the first day of Armada? Since some of us aren't sure how many of our crew are showing up, I'm not sure my group is prepared to sign up quite yet.

Thanks for the preview. I don't know if my crew will actually be any GOOD, but we think it would be fun to try. We also can't supply costumes, unfortunately. We thought about it, but didn't really have time. I was finally able to put together a full crew, though, and we had out first playtest yesterday. Don't ask how it went, but we're enthusiastic! [biggrin]

The form is up! You can find it here: 
CLICK HERE FOR THE OFFICIAL APPLICATION

And I have more good news for crews who want uniforms! Artemis Armada One will see the premier of numerous official Artemis costuming accessories. There will be new patches, sashes, epaulets, gauntlets, etc., to help your crew look keen and professional. The designer tells me that you will want to have matching shirts, preferably with long sleeves.

If you have questions please ask and I will try to find answers. See you in a few days!
