Errand of Mercy

Errand of Mercy,
Tomorrow Is "Giving Tuesday,"
by the Player of Praetor Ji'ana ir'Vastam t'Charvon

((This is all OOC.))

Tomorrow is "Giving Tuesday," a global day dedicated to giving back.  For those who can and would like to give to a charity on this Giving Tuesday, many worthy causes exist.  You may of course select one or more of your own ways of being charitable and compassionate on Giving Tuesday, but I would like to recommend the following (to my knowledge, none of these have ever endorsed any political candidate, unlike some in my list last year):

in memory of Leonard Nimoy (if you like, or in memory of someone in your life)

Thanks for giving, you who are willing and able to do so.

If you are not able to give, that's alright, too.  I've been there myself, and I understand.

The title of the post comes from Star Trek (The Original Series), Season 1, episode 26;  episode 26 overall;  production code 27.

Retrospective Honeymoon Picture

At one point during their honeymoon, Ta'lis and Ji'ana with some of their bridge crew went to a cave on Kobali Prime as a launching point for an attack on Vaadwaur troops, and then decimated the Vaadwaur forces.

The people of ch'Mol'Rihan (New Romulus) celebrate Eitreih'Okhala (the Festival of Elemental Fire) this year on 25 June (in the reckoning of the Terrhasu).  In the continuation of our lives, we do not forget who we are, nor abandon our culture.

The event starts at 7pm (US Eastern), 6pm (US Central), 5pm (US Mountain), 4pm (US Pacific).

Tal'Diann Celebration of Republic Day, 2016-04-10

Eitreih'vauthil s'Kre'dhhokh Mol'Rihanai
Festival of the New-Romulan Republic's Victory
(Republic Day)

April 5 is the officially stated date for "Republic Day" according to Cryptic Studios. However, we have so far had only one officially-sponsored/sanctioned PWE/Cryptic Republic Day event, the year before last, and no indication was given that the event would be run officially this year, on the fifth or any other date. As such, the Tal'Diann took it upon ourselves to host a celebration of Eitreih'vauthil s'Kre'dhhokh Mol'Rihanai (Festival of the New-Romulan Republic's Victory) on Sunday evening, the 10th of April, which was scheduled to run for only two hours, but actually went on well past that duration.

The Music for the Festival

The festivities began in orbit of ch'Mol'Rihan (New Romulus) with a fireworks display, and then moved to the Staging Area with a dance party, followed by a number of contests and games with prizes, and then returned to orbit for a few more contests.

A scene from the early portion of the celebrations on the surface

A good time was had by all (including our resident curmudgeon, who naturally refused to admit it).  We had a number of guests from other fleets, including a couple of our Beta fleets, -Singularity Core- and the Imperial Union of Planets, and some of our friends from Project Trident and Argo.  We will repeat the event in the future should there be no official celebration again, although with some lessons learned from this year's event.

Thanks to all who turned out to make this event a success!

Thiichu Khreh'dhhokh Mol'Rihan u'Mol'Rihannsu!
Long live the New-Romulan Republic and the New-Romulans!
