Welcoming to Different Skies, an original science-fiction roleplay. Please mind the air locks and try not to get stuck in a vacuum.



"Humanity can survive, my friends. But it will take effort and it will take sacrifice. But first, we must rebuild the wheel to study these assailants from beyond. Any piece, any fragment of the Deus Pinnae that rears its head will be ours. Yamata 16 can no longer afford to linger in the shadows. If we must, we will take all of Bastion space in our grasps and ravage it until every metal sliver of the Pinnae is revealed... By any means necessary."

Jonathan Langdon.

As you all will have notice, what little activity we had has come to a standstill. I don't know what to do for the site -- I've advertised and advertised and those that do come disappear either after making their characters or a thread or two in.

There's a fair number of issues I can see: lack of direction, lack of activity, lack of administrative presence. I put a lot of this on myself, so I'm not pointing fingers here. I've been a terrible admin on a lot of fronts, especially presence. Over the last few weeks I've realized I don't really have the time to be the prime admin on a site any more, even on a site this small. My attentions are split in too many directions in real life, from my job to my extra-curricular hobbies. I have a lot of stuff going on and it has been persistent the last few months, making it difficult to keep up a site.

While I enjoy the setting and the character I personally have, and enjoy the people here as well, there is little inspiration to be found. I think everyone has this as problem as well -- without guidance and activity, things are floundering. I don't know how to do that with the time and attention I can devote to DS.

So, while I'm aware of the faults (activity, presence, direction, and oppositon) I don't really have the time to resolve them. I don't know what to do because of this. There's maybe two people posting. Maybe.

Personally, and I hate to say it, but I think we've reached the end of the road here.

I'm willing to try to breathe some more life into this place if you all are, but as it's been this way for a few months now, for such a young site, I don't realistically thing there's any recovering from it.

I am willing to try, so feel free to discuss. Ideas, thoughts, etc. Anything is good at this point. We're at the end of the line.

I'm going out of town for the weekend to visit some friends. I'll have my Kindle with me, so I'll be able to get on, but I won't be doing much of anything.

To start off the new year, we're going to begin occasionally recognizing a character. Different Skies' first award of recognition goes to Essime Laurent!


A young woman born on the planet Canaris, she lives in Bastion and works as a... friend to many. Using her wiles, she's built a reputation for talent in the seedy realms of Bastion society. But, she puts this talent to good use – something that pays as well. A professional in data acquisition, Essime is someone who can gather information on individuals in high-society seeking to sate their more base needs. She is also a novae and has a penchant for more... creative uses of her abilities.

Essime is played by Wayfarer! We're glad to have you both!

Did someone say something meaningful or hilarious? Did a person touch your heart with their words or did they make you despise them to such a degree you want everyone else to see it?

Post it here and link the thread! There's only one catch: you can't nominate yourself and you cannot nominate the last week's winner!

Quotes will be updated every Sunday (provided staff isn't being lazy) to start a new week with some fresh words!
