Thanks to the generosity of the Servant Sisters of Eve as well as the partnership with Interbus and EveScout I am pleased to announce the opening of a new venue for capsuleers to socialize in:
“The Valley” is located in Thera, aboard the Sanctuary Institute of Paleocybernetics and is intended to act as a much-requested physical lounge in the spirit of The Summit. Open to all who obey the rules the “The Valley” is meant to transcend across borders, bloodlines, and beliefs. It was born in shared human struggle and the pursuit of the unknown and we hope those themes will be in your mind as you relax during layovers to other parts of New Eden.
First used by The Sanctuary as an observation lounge overlooking the hot-labs on the terminal ring it has been re-purposed since then as a hang-out for the Sisters employees and capsuleers who formed a relationship following the Second Shattering in late YC116. With the opening of Interbus’s new hub on board, the Sanctuary and Therabois have chosen to open it to the public.
Featuring a zen garden, seating for fourteen, a mini-bar, koi pond, plants and passerines from across inhabited space, and stunning vistas of the plasma world Thera XII, “The Valley” is a relaxing private lounge convenietly located near the interbus terminal and inter-station highway. Thanks to Interbus, Eve Scout, and The Sanctuary, safety is guaranteed while visiting though we would like to remind all those who may visit in capsule-compatible starships that Thera remains un-policed space. Holo connections are permitted and tactile feedback drones are available for rent.
We hope to see you at “The Valley” in the future
Rules and disclaimers:
Access to Sanctuary only areas of the station is strictly enforced by armed guards so exploration is not encouraged.
We are aware that a very small population of extremely problem individuals within the Empyrean community create the majority of the problems within it and are not going to allow those few to ruin the experience of others, but have decided that everyone deserves a chance. Those this applies to know full well who they are and are warned they have one opportunity that will not be given again should they repeat their past behaviors.
All current serving Summit moderation staff are welcome to remain in that role with administration rights over the violence-prevention and belligerent removal microwebifiers that keep “The Valley” safe and comfortable for all. If you are a current Summit moderator and would like to assist in that capacity please mail me for addition to the ACL. Any other applicants for moderator will be rejected or accepted on a case-by-case basis.
(( In the interest of inclusiveness and decency the channel is strictly PG-13. Slurs, OOC political discussions or allusions to IRL politics made IC, extended OOC arguments, racial discrimination, or roleplaying animal abuse with the local fauna is going to get you banned permanently. Attempting to pass off ‘clever’ phrases such as “my brutor” or other in-game variations of real racial slurs is absolutely going to get you removed. In Character racism and argument is allowed at the same capacity as The Summit. Excessive “meming” is also discouraged. Any veteran roleplayers observing blatant canonical mistakes are encouraged to privately explain errors rather than attacking it In Character. Arrangements to use the venue for other purposes or events should be made via eve mail to me.))
