Welcome to the U.S.S. Clepsydra!



A proud member of Obsidian Fleet


The U.S.S. Clepsydra is the first to bear the time and is the most advanced Wells-class within the Federation. These are the stories of her crew as it protects the integrity of the timelines.

A lot has happened in the short time the Clepsydra has been active. Her former Captain revealing himself to be a terrorist through time and space, to an ancient figure returning from retirement. The crew has seen more than they would have cared at the hands of Captain Winter, almost losing their lives in his careless attempt to attain the treasure he had been seeking across the timelines.


Now, the crew have returned to their natural timeline, the Clepsydra undergoing major repairs as everyone takes some time to enjoy the Federation Day festivities.



Overview



The return of the crew of the Clepsydra has given the Federation Council a lot to consider, especially days before the celebrations of Federation Day.

After their debrief they've been instructed to take some time to relax and recuperate from the traumatic events. Each of the returning crew has been offered a position at the formal lunch with the UFP President to celebrate the strength of the Federation and her allies.

What could possibly go wrong?

» Updates and an Award?!

Posted on Sun Jul 28th, 2019 @ 8:12am by Admiral Myrkul Sharr in Sim Announcement

'lo folks,

A news item that I think is important for everyone.

New Role Model
As of last night, Task Force 29 came into formal and full effect. The Task Force is a specialist within Obsidian Fleet, allowing simulations of various timelines, realities and versions to exist without impacting the overall Lore of the Fleet, it is also the first time Obsidian Fleet has allowed CO's to have a 'second' command! I mean, who would have ever thought we'd be up for that, huh?

With the deployment of this very dynamic and new Task Force, the Clepsydra has become its Flagship, we are a ship responsible for a Task Force through various times and universes. As we are such a unique vessel, it makes sense for the Syd to take that status and for me to Adminitrate the Task Force as its TFCO. A member of the JFC makes perfect sense in this position, and I look forward to seeing the great things the Task Force can do and how we, the crew of the Syd, can help and support our colleagues in all kinds of Time related matters - so get brushing up on your Quantm Physics and understanding of time, as we are gonna need it!

Theme

Everyone should have noticed the new theme by now, a dark theme with the DTI and Wells-class ship at the top. Over the coming weeks I will be modifying the theme to fit out sim, a few more Okudagrams (LCARS) to fit with our place in time, a few new graphics here and there, and I will be expanding our inndividual wiki with specific inforation for our site. If anyone of you wants to help out, then let me know. Howie has been great in getting the Wiki started, and we'll be enhancing this as we go along. Feedback/Suggestions are always welcome too.


Awards
Yes, there are two to mention!
Firstly the least important. I often do a few things here and there for a third-party site called Ongoing Worlds and they have seen fit to bestow me with an award of theirs. A OWCH! It was a great honour and I enjoyed Judging one of their panels. Well worth a look; ToS Winners

Now, to the big award. Last night, to my complete surprise, the Syd was awarded Golden PADD for outstanding Post Award for a post that that stands out and blows the reader away with quality. A massive thank you to the authors for this post; Mysteries & Enigmas

So, to conclude. It is a huge thank you from me for being a stable part of this site, and coloossal well done for the award folks, and let's see how we can shape 29!

» Shore Leave: Federation Day

Posted on Thu May 2nd, 2019 @ 7:30pm by Commander Ame Vovihl in General News

Hey guys

As you know our next mission is a shore leave that leads up to Federation Day and our next mission but before that fun it is a good opportunity for us to go wild in the 31st century and really give our characters some development. Please look at the ‘not in kansas’ wiki page for what it is like in our home time period. https://uss-clepsydra.com/index.php/wiki/view/page/10

Federation Day
The return of the crew of the Clepsydra has given the Federation Council a lot to consider, especially days before the celebrations of Federation Day.

After their debrief they've been instructed to take some time to relax and recuperate from the traumatic events. Each of the returning crew have been offered a position at the formal lunch with the UFP President to celebrate the strength of the Federation and her allies.

What could possibly go wrong?


I’ve created a subplot planner so we can create our own plots and join in with others if they interest us. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1fQwmHL5f3Kneg3GcCqp4U1K2FF35as4IbFr0xqrcV7w/edit?usp=sharing .

If anyone wants to discuss plots or thoughts please contact me. I think 14 MD days will allow us loads of time to play with and allow us to get the ship fixed up as well.

» A series of short stories

Posted on Sat Mar 30th, 2019 @ 4:25pm by Admiral Myrkul Sharr in General News

'lo folks.

We've opened a short side mission, it's set within Federation Hall (the primary centre for the Federation Council) and anyone who wants to take part can create an NPC for one of the slots available. If you want a role that's not there, just shout!

It will last a month and no longer, this mission is set around the primary one. What happens when a ship vanishes? Especially in our natrual time of 3097.

Let's have some fun with both. The primary story and how this impacts the world around us.

This is the first of a series of short stories that will follow the main missions we do. Each one will be based around PNPC's and will only last a short period. We are open to ideas and suggestions, so don't be shy in letting us know what you think or what idea's you have.


» Open for Business

Posted on Sat Jan 19th, 2019 @ 3:11pm by Admiral Myrkul Sharr in Sim Announcement

With the move being 90% complete, I would like to confirm the Nova version of the U.S.S. Clepsydra is open for business and the old site is now considered an Archive.

If everyone could ensure their current characters are updated as soon as possible, we will begin actively advertising for key personnel to add to our family.

Over the next few days I will be locking down the previous site, the Invision forums, to only have a ‘read only’ option for everything.

The wiki, known here as TCARS, will be updated as we move forward along with the new player guide. We value your input and if you feel you have anything to add to any article, or a new one, then please let us know.
Let’s show the world what we can achieve.
