Three new sims in development from Silent Hunter

Silent Hunter, the creator of at least half a dozen sims, including Sierra Charlie Four and The Triple First will be bringing three new sims to Phoenix this coming year.

A Kingdom for a Stage

Six centuries ago. A time of knights and knaves. When a group of travellers head to England in the twilight years of Henry IV, they discover a sinister plot to revenge an event in England's past.

Georgia Taylor

She's a girl on a quest. A valuable artefact that could alter the balance of power in a world on the brink of total war appears to have been unearthed. With her trusty gang of fellow archaeologists, she must travel the world in a race against the forces of totalitarianism to get the treasure first.

Get your bullwhips and your hats ready; it's going to be hot.

Kvant ["Quantum"], a Firefly sim

There are mercenaries. Then there are the Eagles of Warsaw. Join up with this company, you can get a regular paycheck, organised training and good dental coverage. Because looks can kill.

Not every job is glamorous. Crashing a cargo shuttle into a skyplex is a way to end up with a non-glamorous one.

Assigned to guard a group of female rock musicians who don't get on with hotel rooms, the crew of Kvant must use all their skill and finesse to guard against crazed fans and rabid stalkers. As well as all their self-control to avoid killing their customers.

Interview with Bill Comnenus

I’m here with Bill Comnenus, Captain of the Republican Corvette West Star. As the ship comes towards the end of its career, how do you feel she will be remembered?

BC: I would hope that would be for her long years of service in defence of the Republic and galactic civilization, specifically against pirates and Separatists.

The Separatist Crisis troubled us all. How soon do you think we will be able to defeat their remnants?

BC: The galaxy's a big place. But they can't hide forever. And there will be a reckoning.

Should we have seen the Crisis coming?

BC: That depends on who you mean. The seeds for the conflict were sown decades before the First Battle of Geonosis, but the Senate led us right into it. I don't think it's fair to say there was much the military could have done differently, though.

What was the best moment of the war for you?

BC: There are no 'best moments' in war, only moments which are less grim than others. Those are the moments characterised by camaraderie, by a crew striving towards their common goal, and by noble self-sacrifice. It is my privilege to serve with such sentients the likes of which the galaxy has never seen, and so there were many moments of my war less grim for that.

What are your plans for the future?

BC: The same thing we always do. Fight 'em until we can't. There're still separatist holdouts and other dangers in the galaxy, and the Weststar and her crew will continue safeguarding the civilian population. The fight isn't over yet.

Thank you very much for your time and keep up the good work.

Sim descriptions

Euan's adding descriptions to some of the forums to tell you a bit more about the sims.

Great work!

I'm, like, a Time Lady!

After the three months I spent back at the site that shall not be named waiting for one sim to be launched, I'm more than pleasantly surprised to announce that The Triple First, Phoenix's Doctor Who sim, has launched.

Featuring my favourite companion in a new, well radical form, this sim allows you to travel the universe with Romanadvoratelundar.

Yes, we've squared the Time War circle quite nicely. Thanks to 'Lex for that solution.
