  1. I think I'll leave a neutral on this one. One of the biggest things I've noticed as an EM and IHC is that people often refuse to be at all tactical unless they are directly told by someone to follow tactics, and even then they follow simple things with little to no teamwork. Recently I did an event on the DS where Rebel Hologram NPCs had taken over one of the levels. There were three entrances to the level, first people ran in guns blazing and got demolished (cause I give NPCs high damage guns to make it fair), then After I told them to they went in using tactics, shields first and using cover. There were two other entrances to the floor that were never used despite the huge tactical advantage they would have given as well as not bottle-necking Imperial Troops. It paints a quite clear picture that many people don't care. I've seen countless times in Engine Room assaults DT be extremely tactical, and regiments in ST and 501st just charge in over and over and over again, cause they just respawn and walk 15 seconds to the action. Whilst I do like the idea and I think it will add value to peoples lives and combat tactics, implementation would need to be done very carefully and there would have to be very specific rules for lower ranking EMs to follow at all times, whilst EMs and SEMs would need more lenient rules perhaps but rules nonetheless. I like Kumo said it can be based around a variety of factors that influence the situation but I think it definitely also needs to be based on regiment. DT, ISB, INF and 975th shouldn't have timers, and I don't think ones with massive RP roles that are less combative should have it either (such as ENG and GOV). Also in terms of the ECs they would have to have ground rules of never going into bunks as it would make spawn-killing (something ECs are told off for already) so much worse. All in all it could help, but it could also break a huge amount and cause people to become angry at Event Masters, who I have seen members of be spoken poorly of in Discord, OOC chat and the forums already. It could be tried, but it would have to be a big if on whether or not it stayed, and how the final version would look.
  2. When slots are full for any particular ships section it is being removed from the App now.
  3. Applications for the 7th Fleet Initiative Hey Everyone https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1o0AyoG_6i4-4dARmBUnivNFyrWX3sFkSdmUcT1o00EA/edit This is the application for the 7th Fleet Initiative, which is a huge RP opportunity for members of the community being run by part of the Event Master Team. We all have our role on the Chimaera and the only way to experience another role is as an Event Character, which most of the time is only temporary and whatever character you create doesn't return. The 7th Fleet Initiative gives you all an opportunity to experience another role in the Empire without losing your character after a single event. As a member of the Initiative you will crew a ship entirely separate to the Chimaera, of which there are currently three, the Raider Class II Corvus, ISD I Griffin and Imperial Escort Carrier Leviathan. There are plenty of roles available on each of these ships all the way from Scout Troopers, to ISB Stormtroopers and members of ISC. On these ships you will conduct RP specific to your role and be involved in events that relate to the ship you are on, rather than the Chimaera. Myself and all the overseers of these ships look forward to seeing your applications and getting to see your new RP characters. Grif

  5. Imperial Campaign This Weekend Join us for the Slave War campaign this Saturday the 22nd at midday AEST, a combining of five full scale events into a single stream of combat and RP Contact Grif on the forums if you want to be an Event Character for the full or any part of the campaign The campaign will end at approximately 5pm AEST The Following is the Title Crawl With the death of the Zygerrian Queen in the Clone Wars the Zygerrian Slave Operation fell to nothingness, until the Empire rose. The Empire used the Zygerrian operation to gain a steady stream of slave labour for use all across the galaxy, and Zygerria's peace was guaranteed now being overseen by Governor Strauss. On the nearby world of Mirial, an attack on the Zygerrians was prepared in secret by the Mirialian High Council, who worshipped force artefacts found on their planet. In a bold attempt they launched simultaneous attacks on the two planets between Mirial and Zygerria and were successful in taking them. The Empire sent the Star Destroyer Aquital to stop the Mirialians but it was destroyed by a rogue Jedi Knight working with the Mirialians. After this discovery the Chimaera joined with the 7th Fleet to spearhead the operation in the sector. The objectives save Zygerria, now being invaded directly, take back Imperial Territory and destroy the Mirialians. We're looking forward to seeing everyone who wants to join us Grif, Sky and Corvo

  8. +1 Since I met him back in STs Stark has been extremely capable, hardworking and mature. I think he would be a valuable addition to the staff team. His reasons are also good and his experience could be very helpful. Best of luck Stark
  9. Definite +1 from me Ever since he first joined the server Cure has been respectful to people and mature when dealing with issues. He is also extremely hard working and would be a great addition to the staff team. Best of luck Cure.

  11. Steam Name: [IG] Lt Col D Grif Age: 22 Steam ID:STEAM_0:1:6295136 In Game Name and Rank: Lieutenant Colonel 9456 - Grif Time Played (Server Time): Have you had any warns and/or bans (If so state them): No Have you been event master on any other servers (If so state them): No I have never been staff on any other server Why are you applying to be an event master: Event Masters make a large core part of the experience on IG, and I want to add to that. Without our EMs we lose all the combat and such a huge roleplay experience from the server. I want to help maintain the server and this wonderful community by creating events for people to enjoy. Also IRL I write novels and stories for my own personal enjoyment and I feel this is a way of me expanding on that and improving my own abilities IRL. What can you bring to the event master team: I believe I can bring fresh ideas to events incorporating methods of including sectors of the Empire like the Engineers and Regional Government. These sectors suffer during many events for having nothing to do other than simply shoot at hostiles, which as they are non-combatants makes little roleplay sense. I understand that balancing all sectors so everyone has something to do is something our EMs constantly have to manage and from my point of view they do a wonderful job most of the time. However sectors like GOV do suffer as in the months I’ve been on the server I’ve seen very few events that directly involve GOV. Whether or not I could actually fix that issue I don’t know, but I think I can try. What can you do to make events more enjoyable and innovative: Not only will I try to make events to include as many sectors as possible so that everyone can enjoy the RP of their sector but I will also attempt to create situations where Military Regiments can use their specialist equipment and tactics for more enjoyment as well as making use of inner-regiment roles, like Widow and 996s roles. I also want to add smaller non-RP events that can just be a bit of fun on the ship. Including training events and quizzes late at night, so the last few players can have some fun before bed. The last thing I want to add are event chains that have branching stories depending on what happens in each event. While this would be difficult to do I believe it achievable by writing the next event only after the previous one is completed but having a general outline for the whole chain regardless of what happens. Do you have basic knowledge of ulx commands: Sadly no, however I have been told there is training as a Trial EM, I am also currently researching the ulx commands and will continue to do so for if I am accepted. Anything else you would like to add: Currently I am free almost everyday however on the 25th of Feb I am back at University, as such my time on the server will decrease but I believe I can still run my Regiment and provide substantial work for the EM team. Please fill out both event ideas and provide much detail as possible Event Idea 1: A King Without Freedom https://docs.google.com/document/d/1HGyinkkm0X1qGSmAIvaOZxAnxrAPWczq2O7QPjNYQ7M/edit This event builds on attempting to incorporate GOV into an event and provide some roleplay for them without it being a passive event. It also incorporates my thoughts on creating diverging event chains depending on what happens. Event Idea 2: The Polis Massa Incident https://docs.google.com/document/d/1nX-jpJsEDY3Ak2w9wBxdbEkdzqtM_On846Z-OpKdhbw/edit This event creates a Military and Navy based combat event against the Partisan Rebels. It aims to provide varying types of combat and allow IHC to lead the military the way they see fit, using any tactic they can to break into and take the base. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Terms of applying: 1. You may bump your application every 7 days after the last bump/post (1 week) 2. Any user may provide feedback by +1 and or -1 your application 3.
