SSO is the hearts and minds behind one of the longest running RP's in STO, the USS Valkyrie.
We have in game RP, we have Forum based RP, and we welcome all with no restrictions to come and join in.
We have a group that doesn't look down on the new guys, we don't give a list of requirements and training, no matter how long you've RP'd or if you never have we welcome all.
There is no overlord here telling you what is expected, we don't have twenty chiefs running a 10 man show, we work together for one purpose, to have a great time with others while sharing ideas and story that ignite your imagination.
No matter if your green and have no experience we have a place here for ya, cause we all know that all it takes is one idea, one dream, to make something come alive that will not be easily forgotten.
Wanna check us out, want proof I'm not blowing smoke up your warp core, come check us out at www.ssofleet.com
Those of you who have heard of the U.S.S. Valkyrie will know it started over 18 months ago in another Fleet the almost exclusive brainchild of Loki who was the main GM for the full period.
Almost unhead of in gaming communities an RP that maintained not only one GM throughout it's life but carried on for more than six seasons over 18 months. Stories that came directly from one guy and a smattering of guest GM's.
However disenchanted with large fleets many of us drifted away from the 12th, the main cast and crew scattered to four universes. We thought we could let it lie, we couldn't. It was in our blood WE were the Valkyrie crew the need to tell our story was too great.
Loki turned from just a GM to someone who had a dream to just make a fleet with the sole purpose of getting together the lost Valkyrie Crew and returning to the Bridge and Ship that was pounding in our blood.
It comprises already the complete origional crew, Loki, Nimshae, Jess, Xariann, Lyle, Horatio, CCoates, Nik, Mike with new members now joining as well.
Those of you who know of us already, because you came and asked questions as we RP'ed, spoke to Nim in game and asked about her bio will know we have a dauntless commitement to this ship.
Will know that the stories we created were unique and some of the most detailed about. Not only did we create stories, we created artwork, and from there came bucket loads of fun.
Now 18 months on we have decided we STILL have stories to tell, we STILL have great ideas and the enthusiasm to run with them. Now though we have no restrictions like we had before. This is pure unadultarted RP, the rating for our fleet is 16 so we CAN ramp up the stories, we can move into darker territory where before we could not.
So we reloaded, we wanted to show that the U.S.S. Valkyrie was not hidebound to certian ideas, we didn't have to take over anothers RP and make it our own as we had nothing to offer.
We made new characters, we have written new stories, everything is brand new, just the ship has stayed the same.....the ship we built and dreamed up when all a fleet gave us to start with, to work with was the name Alpha Crew.
Want to see where it all started, want to dream the dream with us. Want to play with a group of dedicated RP'ers whose creative drive is phenomonal, yet you will find no rules, no elitism, no critique just encouragement and the space to develop your character how you see fit, how you want....
Come join the U.S.S. Valkyrie, we are heading into darkness, new territory, new beginnings.....want to boldly go with us?
The USS Valkyrie was started 18 months ago by the players Horatio Black, Letty Sky, Nimshae Nijade, and Lock Jerahd, who all happen to be here at SSO.
Starfleet special operations division set course with one goal in mind, to bring RP back to the players, not leave it in the hands of some RP Overlord that logs on once in a blue moon to stay in power.
We bring RP to you, you bring RP to us, and together we have one goal in mind, fun!
Cause thats what RP is all about, having a fun time with people that enjoy having a fun time.
Check us out here at www.ssofleet.com, if your looking to join the continuing voyages of the USS Valkyrie, or your looking to start something new, we encourage all forms of RP here.
Don't settle for a cheap carbon copy, a tepid off brand cola, join the crew that started it all, at Starfleet Special Operations Division!
Fun, pure and simple. We don't restrict your ability to RP in a way that YOU the member want to. We encourage all forms of Role play, you won't catch a member here telling you your wrong, or acting as a RP Overlord.
The fleet as a whole supports RP. One of the worst experiences I personaly had in one fleet was being told that my Division didn't really do anything, that our place in the community wasn't good for anything.
Well you won't catch that here, running a STF or creating an environment for others is just as important.
You ever go to join a RP and get handed a page full of questions?
You ever have to take a test in order to RP with anyone or their fleet?
Well you won't catch that here. SSO welcomes all players to free form on our boards or in their RP's their own way. We don't restrict the player with rules that tie their hands, we enforce one thing, FUN.
Now many can claim that they have fun at heart, they may claim they can offer you all the tea in china too, all we promise if fun, a good time, and the ability to do it your own way.
