That’s right, if you haven’t already heard, SciWorld ’21 is on Saturday, beginning at 11:30 AM EDT (-4) / 4:30 pm BST (+1). Our team from Independence Fleet & TNU Project have put in a lot a work to create a dynamic and provocative list of events backed by an outstanding infrastructure. It’s going to be a great day, and we want YOU to be a part of it:
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! But what do you really get out of SciWorld? Here are 4 reasons you should attend:
What a SciWorld! Unfortunately, I was only able to attend my own event, I’ve but I’ve reviewed the transcripts and it looks like it was a excellent convention! I saw a lot of great ideas exchanged and some really interesting discussions. Most importantly, I saw the best of the simming and role playing community: YOU! In short, the 20th anniversary of SciWorld was everything I hoped it would be and more. We’re off to a superb start for the next 20 years.
Well, I did. To make up for it, I’m posting an edited version of a previously unpublished interview I conducted with Ender Maki back in 2011. For those who may be wondering, simmer Ender Maki is credited as being the founder of SciWorld. The interview wasn’t conducted for the purpose of publishing, but rather to collect information so I could flesh out a few articles on the old Simming Encyclopedia (which lives on today as Roleplay Wiki). As such, the interview may seem a little disjointed. But it’s still great! Without any further ado, here is Ender Maki, in mostly his own words, from 2011…
SciWorld 2016 is almost upon us! Indeed, the 14th iteration of the original simming and online role playing convention will be held in chatrooms at www.sciworldonline.com on Thursday, June 23rd and Friday, the 24th. We plan to kick things off at 5:30pm EST (10:30pm BST) on Thursday and at 4:00pm EST (9:00pm BST) on Friday.
For those of you who may not be familiar with the SciWorld Online Convention, it’s an extravaganza held annually in IRC chatrooms for everything that is simming and online roleplaying. Typical events include discussions and workshops on issues within the greater simming community, interactive trivia games, and live-action role plays. There’s something there for everyone! As always, SciWorld is open to all simmers and online role players, regardless of rank or club affiliation. The first SciWorld was held in 1999 and sponsored by the Simming League. Past SciWorlds have also been sponsored by other great organizations, including Ongoing Worlds and SimEnc. This year’s convention is sponsored by Roleplay Wiki, which also sponsored the previous two.
So what does this all mean for you?
First, plan to attend yourself. What better place to share your own ideas and learn the latest and greatest from the rest of the community?
Second, invite your friends. Let them join in on the fun too!

That’s right, the 2015 Simming Fall Festival will be held today (5th Dec) from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM EST (1:30 PM to 10:30 PM GMT) in IRC chat rooms. Host UFOP: StarBase 118 and chair James Drysdale have put together an absolutely fantastic schedule that features some of the most talented from among us leading multiple discussions, games, and trivias.
No matter who you are in the community–from an Ensign to a Fleet Admiral, a rogue trader to a Jedi, or an Orc to an Elf, there will be something for you! FallFest is when the entire simming and online role playing community comes together to discuss our craft. We talk about how to be better writers. We talk about how to be better leaders. We about how to better get along. And most importantly, we have fun, and lots of it! Those who have attended past FallFests will all agree: It is the highlight of the year. And you can be a part of it!
Whether you’re an individual role player, a host, or a club leader, there’s something at FallFest for you:
