Welcome to another Consul Report. Lots of exciting things going on, including the launch of another clan event, Excursion! While we may be adrift in the galaxy, the search for our new system continues!
The Imperial High Command stood together, staring off into dark abyss of deep space. The bridge was quiet, but then again the whole ship was. So precious few of the Empire left to wander the halls of the ship. Just at the edges of the window was the IMS Tipoca II, the lifeboat that had kept the clan from the brink of oblivion.
“Do you really think Jorm’s plan will work?” Mune questioned.
“It might. If anyone would get it done, it’s him. And if not… His… sacrifice will be remembered as yet another casualty due to this whole thing,” Xen’Mordin replied while gritting his teeth.
“The shock and pain of what happened in the Cocytus system has kept the clan united for now. But they will break. Surviving isn’t enough, Xen,” Elincia said.
“If Jorm succeeds, compiled with the rest of the ships we have been acquiring… We will have enough to at least secure us a new home. With dirt and rock under our feet instead of the cold steel of these ships,” Xen responded.
“Not to mention personal space. I think if we keep enforcing the members to stay on the Tipoca much longer they will finish what the Iron Fleet started and kill each other,” Elincia said. She herself had sealed off a massive section of the station for herself.
“Have you even stepped foot on the station since your initial appearance Xen?” Mune asked.
“Now and again. To show solidarity to the members,” Xen said. He paused a moment before continuing, “With the rest of the ships here we can break up the members and crews enough to space them out some. Though I don’t anticipate them spending much time here anyway.”

There have been several really important/helpful/interesting updates to various facets of the club this past month.
First up for all of our gamers. Bilzzard’s Heroes of the Storm is now an accepted DJB platform! I’ve seen a lot of people getting in on this in the Gaming Channel. Its a free game so if you are looking for something new to sink a few hours in, go win some shinies!
Additionally there has been a roll out of a new site function for gamers, a breakdown of clusters earned has been added to the site. This is especially helpful for those of you looking to hit the top of the GMRG and earn one of those amazing DC GMRG accessories.
For you writers out there, the new Fiction Center has been put together by the Voice team to help work as a central location for finding old club fiction updates, see what year ‘x’ event happened in, and who some of those familiar face NPCs are in fiction.
Okay guys, I know you all are super anxious for some news on where CSP will be calling home going forward. As you can see by the above mentioned clan event, “fictionally” we are in the process of finding that home.
On the OOC side of things however, things are busy as we continue to proceed toward the System’s launch. Here is what has happened so far.
We got our initial ideas and hopes and dreams and desires, etc etc, all down on paper to go over. We then kicked out all the stuff that was too much or crazy and boiled it down to what exactly we wanted this system to shape up as.
We got our planet details and names down. This involved a lot of me bugging everyone else on the CSP summit with crazy names to see if they sounded good to other people. This also involved a good bit of math from Eli to establish planet sizes, distance from the star, etc etc.
All of this information was presented to Sarin, Mav, Wally, and Evant for the green light that the system was good. It was presented in a lovely proposal that will be shared once the official launch is live.
Images and write ups of the planets, societies, etc are underway. I have spent more time in photoshop then I ever hope to spend again.
So whats coming?
Good Question. Excursion is going to move us into position to arrive at our new system. At the end of this there will be a “teaser” release of information. When we arrive in the system to make a home, what I’m going to call System 1.0, will go live with a bunch of information and details. After we’ve established a base in the system, System 2.0 will go live for what the system is post us being there, plus a lot more details of whats going on. We all have come to the agreement that the massive info dump of ALL information for the system would be bad.
Once System 2.0 goes live, then comes the “patch” updates as we continue to develop this awesome new system we will be calling home.
I am so incredibly excited for what this system change brings to the table, and very excited about what will be happening there. I hope you all are as well.
For some report teasers, ere are two images I released on telegram.
