How are you gentlemen?
All your base ar...
You get the idea.
In a nutshell, being that nobody's interested in re-hosting Tekagi's, and that Freelancer doesn't have too many MP servers still active, the next big thing seems to be Star Citizen. Essentially, their end goal is to have all the Freelancer/Wing Commander/Starlancer people come to get in on the game. Jaco had posted about us diehards jumping onto Star Citizen a few months back, but since the game has come out, all we've done is have a "Hey, We're the Tekagi's Treasure Group" post get started in their Freelancer section -- which was then promptly buried by all of the other Freelancer groups doing the same thing. Next to nothing concrete has come out of it thus far, so I feel like someone needs to get the ball rolling again. We've got some great people here -- some of which still frequent the forums like I do. Old habits die hard, I suppose.
That being said, rather than waiting on someone else to make the first move -- if they'll make the first move -- I've decided to try to get this started and to see what I can do in getting the group back together again. To that end, I've made a few remarks about Star Citizen and about starting an organization before the game begins. Syntax has been working with me in getting the group off the ground by helping create logos, banners, and photoshopped stuff for the home page. I've spent the past week working on the organization's info pages and whatnot. Star Citizen is missing the right kind of "good guy", so, when I say that I made an organization, I mean that I remade the APOC again and actually tried to tie some Tekagi's history to it and make a legitimate reason as to why it's there. If you're interested in joining up with myself and any other Tekagi's Treasure player that decides to jump in, follow this link: https://robertsspace...om/orgs/NEOAPOC .
So, you're probably asking at this point why I'm doing this. The truth is, I want the group to stick together as we have for so long. We don't need Freelancer to do that. To me, Star Citizen is going to be the next best outlet in terms of space sims that we've grown to love and adore. From my experiences on the Arena Commander simulator alone, I've seen that the game has come a long way from the concept art and idea we were first presented. I've got to say, the game is beautiful, and if the Arena Commander is going to be representative of what this game is to become, it's going to be incredible. Basically, it should turn out to be what Freelancer should have been. That's why I'm so excited about this.
The game needs good veteran role play players. Together, we can help fill that void. We might even be able to reunite all of the old gang to come and join us, should you guys be able to reach out to them.
Now you're probably asking, "What if I don't want to join APOC?". It's a perfectly legitimate question. I'm only offering to try to get something going, as I've said. I'm fairly active on Star Citizen now and would love to have some old faces pop on to share the same experiences with me. If you want to create your own organization, go for it. Let me know so we can work together or so we can directly oppose each other. Remember, the end goal is to get the Tekagi's community back together. I still believe -- even if others don't anymore -- that if we have something to reunite us, we can bring this community back together.
So what say you, Freelancer? Will you join us in a glorious campaign of liberation? Or will you side with pirates and the corrupt? The choice is yours.
One last thing...
For the Brotherhood!
