I am happy to announce that we have selected a host for this years FallFest. Theta Fleet after their great handling of SciWorld has volunteered to assist with FallFest! We are honored they have agreed to help and hope that people are as interested to se what this fall brings as we move closer to the event. The timing for this year will be adjusted a little bit to help free people’s time up for the holidays and so that schedules for organizers are workable for the hosting of FallFest. The date for this year’s FallFest is October 22nd 2022; a Saturday in keeping with tradition for these events. More information about panels, how to help out and the schedule for the event will be posted on Discord as we get closer to the date!
I just wanted to take a quick moment to remind everyone that the SciWorld convention is just about eight hours away. For an up-to-date schedule and additional information please visit the website for the con and it’s Discord.
In April we had completed selection of the host for SciWorld this year and after giving the host some time to prepare we are happy to announce that Theta Fleet will be hosting this year’s SciWorld. Theta Fleet is a well-known organization in the simming community and so we are happy for their willingness to help us with this year’s event. Kathryn Burke the TFCO has graciously taken on the role of chair for the event and has already been actively working on planning the coming SciWorld for everyone to enjoy.
It has been decided that this year’s 20th SciWorld Online Convention will be held on June 11th 2022 starting at 11 AM Eastern Time (-4 UTC) and with closing ceremonies at 6 PM Eastern Time. This is a lovely chance for simmers and role players of all types to get together, chat, share ideas, play fun trivia games and experience the larger community that role playing has to offer in hopes of building new bonds, furthering our own knowledge and sharing our love for role playing together without regard to affiliation, position or rank.

This article was posted at the request of John Nugra, the Administrator of the Simming Prize.
The Simming Prize dates back to 1999 in honoring the very best of the online role playing community. Up to five Prizes are awarded annually to people, sims, clubs, and other organizations that (1) exemplify service, quality, and dedication within play-by-post online role-playing; or who (2) pioneer new technology or techniques within the community. The Prizes can recognize a significant onetime accomplishment, or sustained contributions over a period of time. The Simming Prize is presented in the memory of longtime role player and leader Seth Cotis.
After careful consideration and thoughtful deliberation, the Simming Prize trustees and judges hereby award the 2018 Simming Prize to:
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.
