It’s good to have an out-of-character space to hang out, when players want to plot OOCly or just have fun. Our OOC SkyClub on the Machinima SIM is where we host:

~ Fight Clubs
~ Roleplay Classes
~ OOC Parties and Events
~ Sky Pirate Radio, our semi-I/C “radio station”.

Report from the 2016 “Talk Like a Pirate” Party

The 2016 “Talk Like a Pirate” Party in the Skyclub in Machinima SIM.

Now and then we had a hope that if we lived and were good, God would permit us to be pirates.

Event Description

Mateys …it wer a great success, this coming-together of scurvy dogs and knife-wielding lasses!  Miss  Gabrielle Riel rolled the shanty tunes on Radio Riel’s airways, and brought pirates and scallywags from across the Steamlands to the festooned skyclub in Machinima SIM.  And those what could attend, left some rum for the latecomers!  Until next year,  weigh anchor and hoist the mizzen!
