FallFest 2018: Be There on December 15th

That’s right, the 2018 Simming Fall Festival is scheduled for December 15th!  Indeed, TNU Project has been selected as this year’s host, and Josh Hina will serve as chair.  We’re going a little different route this year as TNU is not a club in in the traditional sense.  Instead, they’re a member of Ascension Sims.  However, Josh and co. already have an outstanding line up events ready for December 15th.

FallFest 2018, Anyone?


It’s time to select a FallFest host!  Well, it’s actually past time!  We held SciWorld later than usual this year and wanted there to still be a good gap between the two. Anyway, we’re now accepting applications to host and chair the online roleplaying community’s premier event: The Simming Fall Festival (aka FallFest).  This will be our 8th festival since beginning back in 2011.

Four Reasons Why You Should Attend FallFest on Saturday


In case you live under a rock and haven’t yet heard, FallFest VII is on Saturday.  That’s right, on December 9th at 2:30 pm GMT (London), 8:30 am EST (New York), 5:30 am PST (San Francisco), we’ll officially kick off the 2017 Simming Fall Festival.  Click here to see the current line up of events and how to join the festivities. Zachary O’Connell and his leadership team from Bravo Fleet and other clubs have quite the extravaganza scheduled for us.

It doesn’t matter if you’re into Star Trek, Star Wars, Dr. Who, or something else entirely.  Or if you prefer chat sims, play by e-mail, or message boards.  If you’re a simmer or online role player of any persuasion, there will be something there for you!  So what do you really get out of FallFest?  Here are 4 reasons you should attend on Saturday:

  1. You’ll get to rub elbows with many prominent members of our community.  In fact, some of the most successful and influential role players and simming leaders in history will be attending and facilitating events.  Learn from the best!
  2. You’ll hear about the latest and most innovative techniques and strategies for leading a successful role play.  Indeed, there will be multiple events dedicated to running better games.  Discover what’s working for others now!
  3. You’ll be able to role play with others from different clubs and genres.  With a diverse set of hosts and settings, you’ll experience a wide range of concepts and ideas.  Challenge the simming norms and help break barriers!
  4. You’ll have fun!  All simmers and online role players, regardless of rank or club affiliation, are invited to attend and participate.  There’s no way to energize your sim than to come back with a fresh perspective.

See you there!

FallFest VII. December 9th. Be there.


It gives me great pleasure to announce that 2017 Squiddie winner Bravo Fleet will be hosting FallFest VII on December 9th, 2017!  Bravo Fleet’s own Zachary O’Connell will serve as the chairman.  Bravo Fleet is a fantastic club with a storied history.  We have no doubt that they’ll put on an absolutely wonderful festival a month from today.  Oh yeah, Zachary O’Connell’s pretty cool too!

If you’ve never heard of FallFest (officially the Ongoing Worlds Fall Festival), it’s a time when the entire simming and online roleplaying community comes together for a few short hours in online chat rooms for engaging discussions, interactive trivia games, and live chat role plays.  In short, we share ideas, information, and energy!  Zachary and Bravo Fleet are on point to plan, advertise, and execute the festival.  Indeed, it takes a lot of work to make FallFest happen!
