Happy Anniversary Invicta!!

Submission Type:
Platform:

On May 2nd, 2008, Invicta was born on a remote pirate island somewhere in Hyperborea.  Through Age of Conan, Fallen Earth, Star Wars: the Old Republic, the Secret World and other games we've stepped in more briefly, we've always left our mark on the local community.

The last nine years have been a glorious, twisty road of fun and fellowship.  I extend my heartfelt appreciation to each of you out there, whatever game you might be playing or where-ever life has taken you!

Trixie’s Guide to Flagships

Submission Type:

Or
Let’s Build a Spaceship

I’m going to skip past all the minutia and get right to the important stuff. I know you guys want to expand the flagship, so that’s what I’m going to focus on.
Firstly, priorities. We’re going to focus on expanding the decks in this order.

1: Crew Deck
2: Command Deck
3: Hanger Deck
4: Engineering Deck

>>>IMPORTANT NOTE THAT YOU REALLY NEED TO READ BELOW!<<<
Being that each deck requires different tokens, and that we have a priority, please don’t buy the tokens yourself. If you get the wrong one, then you’ve just wasted a lot of effort on your part. Please let me or the other officers do the actual buying, or at least consult with one before you purchase plans, just to make sure you get what we need.

Now, for the expanding process, we can expand in 2 ways…

1: Conquests
2: Crafting

Option 1: Expansion via Conquests.

Project Invica's Dice Rules

Submission Type:

Basic PVE dice rules:
For some guild events we incorporate a dice rolling system. The idea/hope for the dice rolling system is not to take over the event- but to take out some of the damage taken out of the players hand.
It basically works like this-
-Every player has 10 hit points for armor, and 20 hit point to health. So in all a total of 30 hit points (if this number is changed it will be explained prior)
-Every player will have 1 save.
-We come up to a npc spawn, and kill them and everyone rolls a d20... ( its /roll d20 or /ran d20 in game) I should clarify that none of the rolling is for 'if' you hit or kill the npc's. They are killed, your rolling is strictly for your own damage and how much you take.

15-16 = 1 point of damage
17= 2 points of damage
18= 3 points of damage
19 = 4 points of damage
20 = 5 points of damage

Choose Yer Own Theme!

Submission Type:
Platform:

I've added functionality that'll let you select your own theme. Right now, the choices are 'Invicta Default' and 'Invicta - TOR Imperial'. To switch your theme, click 'My account' in the left column, then 'edit'. You should see a block on the right-hand side that'll allow you to choose the theme of your choice (there's another choice, 'Garland', which is the drupal default theme... and its ugly!).
Enjoy!

YE OLDE INVICTA RULE BOOK

Submission Type:

Inteligence Division

Submission Type:

"This isn't Glamorous work. We're sanitation workers--we clean up after the military and the Sith and do the jobs no one else will do."

Rank Structure: [OOC: Ranks within the Intelligence Division are for RP flavors, letter/number designation is given out on a first come first serve basis.]

Keeper:
One who sacrifices much so that Imperial Intelligence may exist, Keeper is more title than person. He has no name, and shoulders the responsibility of running the most advanced intelligence agency in the galaxy. He knows the darkest secrets of the Empire, the true scope of Imperial Intelligence’s reach, and the burden of dealing with the Dark Council directly.

Sith Order of Invicta Roster

Submission Type:

This is the official roster for the Sith Order of Invicta. If you have a Sith character that you wish to play within the order, please list them in the format specified below.

This roster will be used as a tool for event planning and for RP networking. As such, I’ll be updating it regularly to keep it up to date.

If I’ve noticed that people on the list aren’t playing regularly, or are out of game, you might notice that the names have been removed. This doesn’t mean that they’ve been completely expelled from the Order, or the guild. It’s merely because I’m trying to keep the roster up to date based on player activity within the order. As players return, or play their sith more regularly, their names will be re-added.

I’ll ask that people list their ranks, names, their master/apprentice status, and alts that they can be commonly found on.

Mods for Guildies

Submission Type:

Ok Gang!  I’m officially in the business of modding up our crew.  If you’re lvl 53 and up, there are some massive new mods out there.  Crafters are now able to make some of the best PvE gear in the game.  I have the capability to make every sort of item mod there is.  So far, I’ve only been able to get all the Armour plates and mods done with Cybertech.  Artifice and Armstech are next.  After that, I’ll work on Biochem for stims.

Here I’ll post what I can do, and what I need in order to do it for you.


The following are the armour plates and mods that Cybertech can create.  Each of the mods and armour plates costs two of the following

SOG (Chiss Culture RP Group) Story and Guidelines

Submission Type:

There’s been a bit of confusion in the Chiss Group lately.  As such, after speaking with a few people, I believe a few things need clarification.  Various members of the group aren’t sure as to the direction and operations of how the group works, or even the membership.  As such, I’m going to add a bit more definition to it, in order to make things flow a bit easier.

As the SOG is a hyper focused group, I’m going to set a few ground rules, as not to dilute the setting for the whole group.

ICly, The SOG (Studies and Observations Group) was established, by the Chiss Expeditionary Defence Force, to assist the Empire in their war against the republic, as well as promote and protect the interests of the Ascendancy in alien space.

Submission Type:

OK, so we got a few of us playing Guild Wars 2, so let's see who's where and who ya are. Maybe we can get some server transfers and get all together and get an Invicta chapter going (With Noc's approval of course)

 

I'm on Magumma server at the moment, but I could be persuaded to move if we all can agree on a server. Transferred.

I'm Cognut, lev 11 Human Engineer. My Arenanet name is Ginwean.xxxx (xxxx= PIN #).

 

Add your character names and Arenanet name (DON"T post your PIN, just the name before the PIN) and I'll tally up who's where.

How I learned to stop worrying and love the alt codes

With the recent name issues, I've noticed lots of alternative characters being used in names. They look like a regular character but with an accent on top. I shied away from them, but then finally gave in to the dark side of the font and used them in an alt character's name that was taken. So, I decided to figure them out (because I couldn't) this morning and here's what I learned:

How to Use Alt Codes

Alt codes are used by pressing the "Alt" key on your keyboard and then while you're holding it down pressing a key combination on the key pad of your keyboard. It MUST be the key pad not the number keys above your letter keys.

PI Crafters Roster

Submission Type:

Ok...  I know this has begun, to an extent, on a couple of other threads, but now I'm going to start a couple of stickied ones.  One for ITC and one for PI.  My plan is to have a full roster of crafters, and add a grade for how active they are in the crafting game in the form of "*"

 

* = Crafter that barely dabbles at all

 

** = Crafts, but mostly for personal reasons and to make a few creds on the GTN

 

*** = I live to craft

 

****= Has RE'd every schem they have, and can make purple versions of every single item they can craft.

 

Example...

 

Atiya, Cybertech***

 

Trixie, Biochem **

Creating Events

Submission Type:
Platform:

Now that we have dates where you guys can reserve some time for events, I thought I'd post a quick guide on how create events and have them put into the community calendar.


Firstly, click the Create Content link to your left.

A new menu will appear, and on that menu, select events.

Recruitment - Who wants in

Submission Type:


-Guide to the Interview Proccess-

 

Before going into the IC interview, have the interested parties read our two Info pages - General Invicta Info: Tinyurl.com/invicta2 and our TOR specific info page: Tinyurl.com/invicta3

I've made the info links into Tinyurls, since copying chat isn't an option in TOR, a tinyurl makes it far more convenient to type out. Over time we found that those that are too lazy to go read 2 pages on a forum are not going to be long-term interested in the guild anyway. Also, if the recruit is a returning member to Invicta - from any branch or game; Fallen Earth, AoC, or Project Invicta, they may skip this step.

A New Direction for Invicta

Submission Type:
Platform:

Today is something of a mixed bag for me.  On one hand, I'm excited to share some news and things I've been working on, but on the other, I'm solemn about what that means in other areas.

Before I get started, though, let me be clear: None of what's below affects Project Invicta on Star Wars: The Old Republic.  That chapter of Invicta continues to run as it has been, with Trixie at the helm.  We've got a lot going on there, with regular events and tons of RP.  If you're not currently playing in an MMO or feeling like you're missing something in your online experience, go check things out there and join in on the fun!

So, let's get down to the meat of the announcement(s):

Invicta: Secret World Going Dormant

on How Being in Guilds Helped with My Job

Submission Type:

I had a thought today, at work.
Y'see, when people at work run into various problems, they usually message the supervisors as a big group. Kinda like if people call out into guild chat that they need help. And I noticed today that sometimes, despite there being a very simple three-letter acronym we can use to indicate to the employee asking for help that we're busy (and thus to please hang tight for someone who isn't), a lot of us ... just don't use it that much.
It made me think of how frustrating it can be for people to feel like they're ignored, even though people saw them, they were just busy. And I remembered how folks here were always good about speaking up, even if they're tied up with other stuff.
I am never too busy to type three letters into a message window. I learned that from Trixie, and from y'all, and that thought made me happy today. :) I love you guys.

New CAPTCHA!

Submission Type:
Platform:

I did some work on the back end to replace our old CAPTCHA system for new user registration. It now uses Google's ReCAPTCHA, which is a ton easier to use (no more squiggly lines!). If you know of anyone who's been having trouble accessing the site because of the CAPTCHA, please ask them to try again and see if it works. And if it doesn't, please let me know!

Yeah, we all knew this was coming

Submission Type:

I have never been happy with myself.

For 16+ years, I've hopped from job to job, relationship to relationship, state to state, trying to find my happiness. All throughout that, I've been playing MMOs. I made friends there when I couldn't find any in person. People there didn't judge me; not much, anyway.

And it took a while, but eventually I found you guys. Of all the friends I've made and managed to keep online, you guys are some of the most consistent. You never give me shit for my unpredictable hiatuses, or for being unable to participate due to chronic illness, or for sticking my foot in my mouth due to anxiety. No matter what shit came down the pipeline, you guys stood alongside me with it.
