Jolan'tru, Rihannsu!

Pride gives us strength. Strength gives us power. Power gives us control. Control grants us the destiny we want. Join the fight, and bring honor to our people. The Romulan Star Empire needs you!

Welcome to the Imperial Romulan Warbird Kholhr, a Valdore-class warbird patrolling many parts of Romulan space and the neutral zone. We are a proud people, but we are also very aware of our situation post-Hobus. We are friendly to the Federation, but that is thin ice. And then we have our Klingon friends to the galactic south knocking at our door. Everyone wants a piece, and we need able-bodied Romulans at our side.

» Welcome Alidar!

Posted on Wed Jun 29th, 2016 @ 6:49pm by Riov S'Havraha in Out of Character

I am happy to welcome Alidar (Jonathan) to the Kholhr. He will be playing a rather new officer in the Galae, although the player is far from new to Romulans, having roleplayed them for 20 years off and on. Another Romulan nut like the rest of us, eh?

Alidar will be a Romulan lead of the Commandos. Typically this is a Reman Slave Master, but since S'Havraha is not keen on the whole slavery deal, had a close relationship with Ovikir, etc, we're bringing on a "Chief of Security" who will run the Remans, and will work closely with Aidoann on these areas as well.

Expect a log/post from him upon his arrival at the Kholhr (docked at the Flotilla when he arrives, most likely), and feel free to engage with him in your own JPs. Super excited!

» May Bronze Unit of Merit!

Posted on Mon Jun 27th, 2016 @ 7:17pm by Riov S'Havraha in Sim Announcement

I am pleased to announce that we received the Bronze Unit of Merit award for May of 2016. This is the second time we've received this honor and I cannot say how pleased I am with all of you to allow this to happen. This is a wonderful sim. And while we can get slow at times, I love this place we call hfihar!

All active members have received the "Distinction" award on this sim for this very honor:
May 2016 Bronze Unit of Merit Award

» Awards and Promotions

Posted on Tue May 31st, 2016 @ 9:57am by Riov S'Havraha in Sim Announcement

I am pleased to announce some awards and promotions for the Chase mission. First, all of you have received a Service Medal for participating in this mission. Savin will also receive one for the Klingon Buildup mission.

Also, the crew have nominated Nveidus for the Rihannsu, which also translates into the Crew's Choice Award in Obsidian Fleet. I am always pleased with Nveidus' deep dive into his character and Romulan lore.

I am going to award the Commander's Honor (MVP-like award) to both Tiellh and Aidoann. They have both led away teams during this mission and have really done a great service IC and OOC for this sim and the last mission. I hope to see great things from both of them as we continue on!

A few promotions are in order. Way back in the fall, I was awarded the OOC promotion to Riov, or Commander (Starfleet Captain equivalent) given my 6 months of command, so I will be taking that ICly now that we have completed this mission.

In addition, I am pleased to announce these promotions. Uhlan Nveidus is hereby promoted to the rank of erei'Arrain (Lieutenant J.G.), Arrain Vrina is promoted to the rank of EnArrain (Lt. Commander), and Tiellh is promoted to the rank of ere'Riov (SubCommander, Commander equiv). This will be role played out in the beginning of our next mission so stay tuned!

I should also mention that Zanne, although not a Romulan, will receive a Distinction award. This is for OOC purposes for Brian's contributions, but also ICly S'Havraha will be doing something for Zanne and her efforts for the Romulans. It should be fun to RP this out!

If you have any questions or concerns about this process, do not hesitate to come to me or Louise. I hope you will have fun on this next mission, Border Tensions!

» New Featured Post - Go Savin!

Posted on Sat May 14th, 2016 @ 12:23pm by Riov S'Havraha in Out of Character

I have decided on a new featured post for our sim. The "Bullies Shout the Loudest" post, by Savin (, has been given this distinction. The post is linked off our front page, and Savin has also received the Rihannsu award. Well done!

» Two new simple changes

Posted on Fri May 13th, 2016 @ 4:09pm by Riov S'Havraha in Sim Announcement

I am going to put in place two simple changes that I've learned from some other sims. These are being put in place to keep the sim moving at a quicker pace so we don't get bogged down by post lag as much.

First, I am going to require a minimum of one post per month that is actually posted. We usually hit this, but sometimes our JPs drag on for quite a while. So you need to have posted a JP, an individual mission post, a side char-dev post (joint or not), or a personal log. People who cannot do at least this much will begin to be weeded out. I don't think we'll have any issue here, but it will make us think about our pacing more.

Second, I am going to be more clear about Mission Days. I will keep track in the Summary and Notes of the mission, and progress us in the mission as we move forward. You can see an example of this in the next mission ( -> Click the "Summary" tab). I am hoping this will also keep our pace up, as we will be striving for the next "chunk" of the mission. Thanks to Jay and the Galileo for this style of MD tracking.

Again, this is just to keep our pace a bit better and hopefully avoid some lag. If you have any questions or comments, toss them my or Louise's way!

Romulan Flotilla

Kholhr Bridge

S'Havraha watched his team leave, and then heard the check-in attempt with EnArrain Tiellh. They would wait to see what was happening on those two fronts. The triple separations were beginning to make him nervous. Things were getting tense and the Kholhr was somehow seeing increasing success.…
