Jolan tru, citizen of the Empire.

Welcome aboard the Imperial Romulan Vessel Imperiax! Much has happened recently within the Empire that affects us all. Romulus and Remus have been destroyed and we currently have no Praetor to lead us. The realms within our borders are in a state of chaos with people from all sides vying for power. It is a turbulent time indeed.

While for most of us our homeworld is now lost, it is important that we continue to hold onto the ideals and philosophies that have made the Empire strong for so many centuries.

In the wake of our most desperate hour, the Romulan Guard has recommissioned some of their older and partially damaged starships for immediate use. They have also recalled all available and retired military personnel to be deployed on these vessels immediately. Order must be maintained.

It is a difficult time for anyone with Romulan blood in their veins but rest assured, that this is not the end of the Empire. We are Romulan. We will prevail. We will rise from the ashes of our fallen comrades and become much stronger and more feared than ever before.

The IRV Imperiax has been assigned to Task Force 93 which operates within a vast area of Romulan Space but also encompasses a portion of the diminished Romulan Neutral Zone and Federation Space. The sim itself takes place in the year 2387 which is eight years after Star Trek Nemesis.

Here at the Imperiax, we value quality over quantity. If you're interested in trying out something new, have the time at your disposal, want to be part of some engaging and thrilling stories, and most importantly, if you like everything that you've read about the ship so far, then why not give a Romulan ship a chance? Join us on the Imperiax today!

Current Mission: Revealing Truths

Subcommander Dhael has received a cryptic message from an old contact within the reunification movement, indicating that he knows the truth of what really happened at Hobus. Ever-wanting to know this truth, Volus allows Dhael to meet with this contact while the Imperiax maintains a hidden position away from the rendez-vous. During the meeting, Dhael realizes that not everyone wants the truth to come out.

Posted on 01 Oct 2015 @ 6:08pm by Commander Volus tr'Keirheol in General News

Jolan tru everyone!

So as I promised yesterday, Episode #6 - Revealing Truths is now open. Any new posts should be done under that mission. This mission will take place about a month or so after our last mission and we've finally fallen into the year 2388! Hooray. It's about time really.. we're pretty behind the Bravo Fleet storyline but no worries. We'll get there. I have good things planned. 'Silent Infestation' is still open as well. There are two posts that need to go out before I close it off. Hopefully we get there soon. Anyone who took part in that mission has received a mission badge for it which is now attached to your bios :D.

I also want to take this opportunity to announce that I've selected Penny, who plays Decurion Rhhaein, as September's player of the month! Congrats! I know it's been hard for you to get into the mission but you're making progress. Keep at it and I hope to see more from you as we move forward.

Now on to the goodies. Synopsis for Episode #6: Revealing Truths

12th d. of 1st m. of Fire, y. 1940 AS. Subcommander Dhael has received a cryptic message from an old contact within the reunification movement, indicating that he knows the truth of what really happened at Hobus. Ever-wanting to know this truth, Volus allows Dhael to meet with this contact while the Imperiax maintains a hidden position away from the rendez-vous. During the meeting, Dhael realizes that not everyone wants the truth to come out.

This is just a small taste of an over-arching storyline that we are beginning which will involve us figuring out what really happened at Hobus.. as well as 'fixing things' within the Romulan Star Empire.

Here are a few important bits of information for this mission:
- We are picking up about a month or so after our last mission and are finally in the year 2388.
- The events of this mission take place a few months before the Romulan / Cardassian conflict in the TF47/93 storyline.
- We are starting on MD1 and will be traveling until MD4.
- Rejik has been in the brig all this time. He's being fed only minimal energy, enough to keep him alive.
- Commander Volus would have requested that Rejik's being held on the Imperiax be kept from the Romulan Guard at this time until it is decided what will be done with him (this will happen in one of the first posts).

Aside from anything else you guys might come up with during this mission, here are some plotlines that I'd like to see explored in this mission:
- Volus / Aelona's working relationship.
- Dhael and whatever (this is your mission :P)
- Varuh, Lyirru, Isha, Rhhaein and the Mortis.
- Rejik, Varuh, Isha, Dar and Sienae (to handle Rejik's re-integration as an officer once we get to that point).
- Valkis, Grax, Lyirru and Rhhaein will end up forming as an away team (unless things are changed).

Other than that, this is a fresh start for alot of you. As always, if anyone wants to do a joint post with Volus or any of my other characters please let me know. I'd be more than happy to do stuff! Post, post, post! Let's get this mission off on the right foot ! :D Let's try to get 10 posts out in October. I know we can do it. We have before.

I think that's all I have to say for now. Thanks everyone for staying with us until the end of our last mission. Let's make our next mission better!

» Happy Birthday Imperiax!

Posted on 15 Sep 2015 @ 5:56pm by Commander Volus tr'Keirheol in General News

Hello everyone! Let's all wish the Imperiax a happy 3rd birthday!

Three years ago today I began this simm and I had no idea that it would have evolved over the years the way that it has. It first started with myself and Karen (Dhael) but we quickly gained a handful of members, two of which who are still with us today. Thank you to Andreas (Valkis) and Michael (Varuh) for your dedication to this ship. I can't tell you enough how much it's appreciated. I'd also like to thank everyone who has joined us since the beginning. Thank you to those who've decided to stay with us over the past months and years. Without players, the Imperiax wouldn't really go anywhere. Since I've been a CO in Bravo Fleet, there hasn't been another alien simm that has been as dedicated as this one. While we might not get recognized for our efforts, please know that I do and you guys mean alot to me. :D

Anyhow, that's it from me. Grab some Romulan Ale, hug your favorite Reman and all hail the Romulan Star Empire!

Jolan tru!

Posted on 14 Sep 2015 @ 7:01pm by Commander Volus tr'Keirheol in Out of Character

Hey everyone! I'm back from my two week LOA. Karen (Dhael) should be back on Wednesday. She works crazy hours so won't be able to tackle posts until then. I want to try and finish this mission this week. We're wrapping up our final post for this mission right now. If anyone has posts that they need to complete, please do so as quickly as possible! Also, tomorrow is a special day for this ship! :D More to come on Tuesday!

» Brief LOA!

Posted on 28 Aug 2015 @ 10:31am by Commander Volus tr'Keirheol in Out of Character

Hey everyone!

Karen (Dhael) and I will be going on a brief LOA starting on August 29th that will last until September 13th. We're going to visit my family in Canada whom I haven't seen for over two years now. We should both still have access to the internet while we're away so if you need to get a hold of either of us then you should be able to. We'll get back to you as quickly as we can.

Unfortunately it looks like we didn't get to completing the mission this month as I'd hoped for. It's not a huge deal considering our LOA. Let's do our best to finish this mission off in September though. I think we're only a handful of posts away and two of them are currently being worked on.

In the meantime, you guys can do some posts amongs yourselves. I think that some of you already are. Once we bombard the planet (which I'll have to start a post for), we'll be continuing on our original course to the Devoras System to deliver supplies. Right now I have the MD up to MD22.. so that's like three extra days for you guys to play in (MD19 to 22).

August's player of the month award goes to Michael who we all know plays Sublieutenant Varuh. As always he's shown to be an integral part of this crew and has always done a remarkable job. Once I get back from Canada I'll work on something to show who has won the player of the month awards so that we can all keep track of it.

Last but not least, the Imperiax's 3rd birthday is coming sooooon! On September 15th! Get your Romulan Ale and party hats out!

See you guys in a couple of weeks!

» End Of Mission Role Call, Part Deux!

Posted on 12 Aug 2015 @ 3:26pm by Commander Volus tr'Keirheol in Sim Announcement

Just a note that everyone who wasn't on LOA has answered the role call. Thank you for replying to that post. I've since deleted it and we'll be progressing to the next mission (once this one is wrapped up) with everyone still with us. I think that we have a good mission planned for you guys that will make use of everyone.
