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: Silent Infestation

While en route to the Devoras System to deliver some cargo and supplies, the Imperiax receives a distress call from a Reman colony located 13.6 light-years away. As they are seemingly the only starship in the area, Commander Volus has the ship diverted to the Xolecis System to investigate. The only communication heard from the colony since the distress call is three words - resistance is futile.

Hey everyone! So as the holidays are creeping up on us, it's obvious that some of us are having a bit of trouble keeping up with our posts. It's a busy time! It's perfectly alright. During this time don't feel as if you need to reply to posts but please do so if you can. I do expect people to get back to replies after Christmas though.

And with all of that being said, Karen (Dhael) and I would like to wish everyone a very happy holidays in whichever form you wish to celebrate it! Be safe and have fun!

» A New Month!

Posted on 01 Dec 2014 @ 5:20pm by Commander Volus tr'Keirheol in General News

Hey everyone!

It's December. Already! This month can be a little hectic for people because of the holidays. That's completely O.K. Real life always comes first. The last couple of months have been a little bit slow for us. I'd like to see us try and change that starting right now. I think this is incredibly important as we're only six players on the Imperiax. Things will inevitably take longer because of that but I'd like to try and avoid having year-long missions. Nobody likes those kinds of missions.

Our current mission isn't meant to last that long so I'd like to try and encourage everyone to put in a good effort this month with posts. Try to get to them as quickly as you can. By the end of the month I'd like to see us have at least 5 posts sent out. We already have 1 so that's a good start. Let's do four more. This includes me. I'm most likely going to write a post or two with Volus on the ship. Everyone needs to be pulling their weight though. If you need to be away for whatever reason, and if it's for a long time, then please request an LOA. It's extremely difficult to do stuff because of our numbers and it's never fun when you expect something from someone but aren't getting it. Communication is the key.

Anyways.. that's the end of my lecture. :P Have fun. This mission should be a blast. Let's crank out some posts

Posted on 14 Oct 2014 @ 12:22pm by Commander Volus tr'Keirheol in Sim Announcement

After nearly five months of waiting, I am pleased to report that a storyline idea I have going forward for the Romulan Star Empire has been approved. The main focus of the storyline will involve Hobus, the Tal Shiar and our wonderful government. We won't see much of it in the current mission that we are doing, but as we move along there will be bits and pieces that are going to come together. So keep a look out! The Imperiax is going to be playing an important part in developing Romulan history in the years to come.

» Happy Birthday To The Imperiax!

Posted on 15 Sep 2014 @ 9:15am by Commander Volus tr'Keirheol in General News

Hello everyone! It's September 15th and that means that today is the Imperiax's birthday! Happy birthday! Let's all raise a very full glass of Romulan Ale in honour of this great ship!

We have been around for a full two years now and I can honestly say that even though we've had some tough and some slow times, that we have pulled through nonetheless. This ship is alot of fun to play on and it is truly my favourite amidst all four of my commands. Thank you to everyone who continues to contribute here. You don't know how much it means to me. It means alot! I am proud of having you as my writing buddies and potentially calling you my friends!

We are the only true alien simm currently in Bravo Fleet. We have continued to write stories from the Romulan point of view while other alien simms have started and closed down. And we will continue to do so well into year three and beyond!

Let us celebrate in this great accomplishment! I look forward to writing some more great stories with you in the years to come.

Jolan tru! For Romulus!

» Hooray! 'The Blood Of Eternity' is finally done!

Posted on 10 Aug 2014 @ 9:09pm by Commander Volus tr'Keirheol in Sim Announcement

So with the post that Karen (Dhael) just sent out, we can finally mark the end of Episode #4 - The Blood of Eternity. Thank you to everyone who worked hard over the last couple of months to see this mission come to its conclusion. It's greatly appreciated.

Unfortunately, like Episode #2, this mission lasted way too long. I'd tried to make it shorter, and I think it was in scope, however we suffered in the late winter months of this past year when people went on LOA as well as new players just letting us down by going absent without a word. I would like to reiterate that for the upcoming mission I'm going to try my hardest to make these missions go a little bit faster. One year to complete a mission is just too much. It's something I've complained to other COs about in the past.. and it's something that I want to see improved here.

In that specific vein of thought, I am going to introduce 'goals' for us to meet every month. You don't really get anything for meeting those goals but it's just sort of a guideline to help us get things done. In August, thus far, we've managed a total of eight posts which is awesome! I'd like us to work hard for the next twenty-one days and try to get out another eight posts at least. Be mindful of what you write though.. don't write posts for the sake of doing them. Make sure there's a purpose to them, and make sure they tell a good story. You guys haven't let me down up until now so let's keep things go! On to our next mission!

As some of you might have seen, the name of our next mission is 'Silent Infestation' and it will involve our brethren the Remans and also the Borg. For the next week or so, here are some items to keep in mind regarding any posts you wish to write.

- It will take us 18 days to go from Anaeth to the D'deridex System.
- Mission Day 1 (MD1) will be when we arrive at the outpost at D'deridex.
- Any posts that are to happen before our arrival should be labelled as 'Recently...'
- We will only be staying at D'deridex until late MD2. From there we are to deliver supplies and cargo to the Devoras System.

I think that's pretty much all you guys need to know for now. I'll probably give us a week or two to do some posts that are more laid back before we get into the thick of things with our new mission. I'd encourage you all to do some posts together. I think the one thing that's always been lacking on the Imperiax is character bonding (for a variety of reasons), so let's try to fix that a little bit. Make use of NPCs! There are some that are owned by specific players but just let those people know and we can get stuff done.

Oh, as already mentioned, everyone who participated in this last mission will have a shiny new commendation attached to the 'awards' section of their bios. As our last mission was so lengthy and there were only four of us who played for the majority of it, I won't be doing awards this time.

I think that's all. Thank you to everyone who has kept up with the Imperiax up until now. Our 2 year anniversary is fast approaching! I look forward to seeing how this next mission develops!

Valkis had scheduled some sword training for those who were interested in a less traditional style. Actually the phrase 'less traditional' held only true from a Romulan perspective, because the style itself was already ancient when their ancestors left Vulcan. However, whereas the Romulan styles all decended from S'harien's school…
