This year we will have four Canonical Battles©, three on the canonical bridge featuring solo crews and one in the ballroom with three crews working cooperatively. The outcomes of the first three battles will dictate the conditions faced by the crews in the final battle.

We will be accepting up to six crews, three to fight solo and three to fight cooperatively. Remember, for Canonical Battles© we don't care how well you play. We want sharp crews with beautiful uniforms and snappy dialog.

To apply for a canonical battle click here.

To help you prepare your answers before visiting the form the text appears below:

Artemis Armada Two: Application for Canonical Battles©

Each selected crew will play one or more mission scripts specially written for Artemis Armada II: Ximni Dawn. Each script will be tested for bugs beforehand, otherwise the selected crew will be the first to play it. Whatever happens to that crew the first time they play will go down in the history of the Artemis universe. Every effort will be made to capture each adventure on video for online presentation.

Crews will be selected for Canonical Battles© based on the impressiveness of their applications. UP TO SIX of the most exciting and dramatic crews will be selected for Canonical Battles©.

Deadline for application submission: 11:59 PM Eastern time, March 27, 2016.

* Required

Name of TSN Ship *
Give the name of your ship


Preferred Starship Class *

Second Preferred Starship Class *

Name of Captain *
These names will become part of TSN/Artemis canon. You may supply real names or personna names. They may include rank if you wish. Players may be asked to sign a consent form allowing these names to be used in public and in perpetuity, telling the tales of bravery, cowardice, foolhardiness, genius, etc. in the annals of galactic history.


Contact Email *
Email address of Captain, Executive Officer, etc.


Name of Helm Officer


Name of Weapons Officer


Name of Engineering Officer


Name of Science Officer


Name of Communications Officer


Name of SLiC (Squadron Leader in Combat) for fighters


Names of Additional Fighter Pilots


Give names and positions of other crew members who might participate in this mission.
Morale Officer, Ship's Counselor, Quartermaster, Major of Marines, or any other position unique to your crew.


Flavor Details
The following section will be used to choose teams for Canonical Battles© at Artemis Armada Two. All of these items are optional, but the crews with the most impressive Flavor Details will be selected for Canonical Battles©.

Crew History
Should be dramatic and include details of actual or imagined games of Artemis this crew has played.

Training Program
Describe how you train new crew members and improve existing crew members. Include lessons and remediation, if applicable.

Uniforms
Describe your crew's uniforms. Include URLs of photographs if possible.

Stage Experience
Any stage experience can be a bonus in Canonical Battles© - doubly so if it is improvisational experience.

Physical Fitness Program
Real military officers have a physical fitness program. Does your crew regularly play Laser Tag, Paintball, Softball, etc.? In this case we are asking about the players, not their characters.

Favorite Lines of Dialog From Real or Fictional Battles
This could be anything from "Damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead!" to "It's a trap!" We hope your crew quips some awesome original lines during your battle.

Stage Business
Does your crew have a salute? Do you simultaneously lean in the same direction when the ship makes a sharp turn, or fall out of your seats when the ship is hit? Describe any dramatic stage business your crew does well.

Saturday night a full crew tested the first of this year's Canonical Battles© entitled: "The Hunt for Squadron Daring." This battle is set in a critical sector for the Terrans, full of transport ships that must deliver cargo and personnel to keep the war effort going. The Ximni have dispatched their infamous Squadron Daring to ambush these transports and disrupt the sector. Your crew must play cat-and-mouse with this cunning Ximni squadron for 40 minutes. At the end of the mission the number of transports that got through determines the strength of the TSN force in the final battle.

The test went pretty well and the crew found the NPC Ximni to be worthy opponents. I believe the script is ready to play, though it uncovered some new bugs in the game.

The fields on the application aren't letting me fill them out. How should I do this?

The form seems to be working fine for me. You need to click on the words "Your Answer." Some browsers render the text boxes so faintly you can't see them.

I got it to work with Firefox and Chrome with Windows 7.

Yesterday our crew ran its first playtest of the second Canonical Battle for Armada, "The Battle of Hotblood's Tail." This is a big Jutland-style battle of major capital ships on both sides.

The script worked pretty well, but it did detect a few more bugs in the Artemis 2.3.102 code.
