» Reboot of Somnambulis

Posted on Sunday December 1st, 2019 @ 6:09pm by Simone Langford in Sim Announcement

Hi everyone,

After much thinking and trying to figure out what I want for this sim, I have decided to reboot Somnambulis as a Star Trek sim. The original setting I had in mind was a fun one with lots of potential... but also something I found along the way that requires a lot of planning and worldbuilding. Although that is something I enjoy, it unfortunately takes a long time and takes away from the writing aspect of the sim.

Returning to a Star Trek setting brings with it a lot of familiarity and background lore that doesn't need to be explained in as much detail as a completely original setting does.

So please consider, as of now, the sim on hiatus, pending a full reboot. The setting as well as the premise will change, so the sim will most likely stay the same in name only.

Thank you to those of you who have shown interest in the sim in its original setting; I appreciate your enthusiasm and apologise for any inconvenience. If you'd like to be part of the sim in its new incarnation, please keep an eye on this discord or the recruitment tab in Bravo Fleet over the next.

Thank you kindly!

Bren

Welcome to Somnambulis, a new sim with an original setting inspired by a mix of various sci-fi stories such as Lost in Space, Passengers and The Expanse.

The website is still a work in progress, but feel free to have a look around while we prepare to start our first mission, Prelude, which deals with the events leading up to the Aquila 4's disappearance.

Your GM,
