What is the Republic Doing Now?

Gaming is the simple answer, but wait, there’s more!

We’ve got several chapters going right now, but on top of that we’re always working on things “behind the scenes.” With the cancellation of Chronicles of Elyria we’re on the hunt for the next big chapter. In the meantime, though, we’ve got some options for you to game with the Republic.

Life is Feudal MMO

Yup, we’re still in the game and the chapter is working on building up again after the latest wipe. Join us on Discord and check out the progress. All characters retained their skills, so the skill grind is nil if you’ve had a well developed skill tree. The skill total has been upped to 1000, so smaller groups have a better chance.

Satisfactory

This game kind of came out of nowhere and we’re enjoying the Factorio feel in 3D. It’s in early development, but the game has quite a bit of content with a great multiplayer feature. We’re hosting limited sessions, but so far the game has been great. The environment has a Subnautica feel to it while the mechanics channel Factorio.

Conqueror’s Blade

We’re back in Conqueror’s Blade thanks to the latest season which introduces Italian Mercenary styled units, which of course fits right in with SSR and our own themes. Week Three of Twelve has just begun and introduced Italian Pike. Coming up soon are mortars and Pavise Crossbows which should change up the way the game plays tactically and strategically. Join us for Territory Wars on Tuesdays and Saturdays along with MilitaryGamers.com.

ATLAS: Darkside RP Next Season

While specifics aren’t available we’re still keeping an eye on Darkside’s progress towards the next ATLAS season. We’ve spotted a cool video that provides some insight into some new content that should be making its way into the next chapter.

Side Projects!

SSR Bot

We’re always working on something else aside from gaming. The SSR Bot is being worked on as promised. The goal is to get it integrated into Life is Feudal: MMO to test out the reward features. The Wiki server is back up and running since it will host the SSR Bot and another bot was built for a different Discord server altogether. Since everything is hosted on AWS there’s a lot more to do in order to get the server running and functioning. Now that we’ve got the Codex stabilized and hosting another bot we can turn our attention back towards the SSR Bot. It is being scripted in Python and integrated into the website so it will form the foundation for an entire account management ecosystem replacing our old forums and pulling together our Discord presence. You’ll be able to register an account through the website and the Discord server very soon.

SSR Game World

The SSR Game World has been something we’ve been developing for a long time. It includes a Crusader Kings II mod, Novel, and RPG Ruleset on top of an MMO platform being slowly worked on in the background. The Novel is now the primary focus as it will create the entire foundation for the whole Silver Sun Republic franchise. Hovering around 30% complete of the first draft, the initial 6 Chapters are done with 14 more outlined and planned. The SSR RPG/Tabletop Ruleset is being worked on in tandem at around 50% complete with the framework of the entire system in place awaiting specific numbers and skill/ability lists. All of the major mechanics have been fleshed out. The Crusader Kings II mod is tied closely to both of these as the major locations, factions, characters, and lore will come together on the game map.

In the meantime, we’ve been working on the Soacio city map in Medieval Engineers to bring that core location to life enabling the Novel and other art elements.

Work in progress, but will form the foundation for the future of our capital city in the Novel, RPG Ruleset, and other game projects.

Quarantine Gaming with the Silver Sun Republic

Now is the time to get into something to help you with the monotony and SSR has got your back with three established branches. Life is Feudal MMO just wiped, Star Wars: The Old Republic quenches the theme park MMO thirst, and Conqueror’s Blade just launched what I’m dubbing, their SSR season complete with Italian (specifically Florence) themed units, skins, and scenarios. Yep, you heard that correctly, it’s almost as if they reached into my brain and asked me what would get me back into the game. You can unlock Condottieri Guard (swordsmen), Italian Pikes, Pavise Crossbowmen, and mortars (yep, mobile siege weapons, not entirely historically accurate, but hey, neither is the game by any means!).

In the piazza of the Signoria

Life is Feudal MMO

Get back to one of our more recent successes and join the crew as they rebuild after the recent wipe. One of the greatest tweaks is the reduction in maintenance costs for claims. It should make the game less of an imperative to log in every day just to replenish your coins. That alone eases up the stress from the game and makes it much more enjoyable. We’re bordering on the safe zone, so whatever you’re craving for safety or danger happens to be there are options to settle where you want.

Star Wars: The Old Republic

We’re part of the Sith Empire as always in SWTOR on the Star Forge server jumping on Flashpoints and putting together Operations as people show interest. Level up to 75 or hang out around 50 on the Free to Play option; whatever you want! Plenty of content is still accessible on the complete free option.

Conqueror’s Blade

Check out this video to help explain all the new additions. We’re on the NA server in Ostaria. MilitaryGamers has invited us to join them and their alliance as they fight for Territory Control in the game. Now is a GREAT time to return and fight it out with us!

Plenty of Other Stuff Too!

We still host random game nights including Stellaris and The Guild 3 as well as Crusader Kings II. Just hit us up on Discord as always.

In other news, the SSR Novel is coming along nicely. I have the novel done through Chapter 6 with a 30,000 word count. The current content is laid out to be 20 chapters at 100,000 words making it a full fantasy length novel. Additionally, there is an SSR tabletop game in the works using the novel as the setting. If all goes according to plan, we will have a Kickstarter coming out later this year. I’ve shared the first three chapters of it to Discord, so give it a read and let me know what you think.

The Republic Marches to War!

Onward, dear citizens, to victory for the almighty Republic under the guiding light of our Radiant Lady, Requesta!

His Grace, the Doge beckons to all who would hear his voice and summons all able bodied citizens to take up arms in service to the Crowned Republic of the Silver Sun.  Take up the sword, bow, hammer, saw and scythe in victory as the Kingdom of Hyperion rises again from the ashes to claim its rightful place among the annals of history.

All are summoned to Discord (http://discord.silversunrepublic.com) to gather each Sunday at 6 PM CST / 7 PM EST to organize and prepare to march under the banner of the Silver Sun, blessed nation of the free peoples of our realm.  In this assembly you will find the soldiers of Requesta honing their talents and building their strength.


Furthermore, citizens are called upon to assist in spreading the word of our glorious Republic and may find more information by reading this article:

The Republic’s strength is found in her people and you are the mortar upon which this mighty nation is built.  Go forth and let us declare victory as we come together in preparation for the upcoming campaign.

If you have not been with us for some time, there are several resources to help you learn about the ways we have made ourselves more efficient and better organized to give you more depth in exploring your life within the Republic.

Life is Feudal – Recruiting Helps the Republic Grow!

Recruiting is essential to the survival of our community and it’s not just a job for the officers.  The more everyone recruits, the more activity you can benefit from having throughout the Republic.

Since we’re currently most active in Life is Feudal, we want to offer up a menu of various threads to keep an eye on to help push the good word of SSR, but don’t limit yourselves to only these threads or even these forums.  Spread the word on your own Social Media profiles and pages to help us grow our group.

Additionally, please ensure you are checking the SSR Forums each day at: http://www.silversunrepublic.com/forum.php for new introduction posts from recruits and interested players.  The more active our forums are, the better presentation of activity we will have for new arrivals.

Life is Feudal Forums

Visit the Recruiting forums on the Life is Feudal: MMO for LFG/looking for clan posts and respond or refer potential recruits to a Prefect: http://lifeisfeudal.com/forum/recruitment/.

Please bump the SSR thread in that forum: http://lifeisfeudal.com/forum/silver-sun-republic-t553/

We also have posts in the sub-category on the LiF forums for the MMO at: http://lifeisfeudal.com/forum/silver-sun-republic-lifeisroleplay-com-t18034/

For MilitaryGamers.com members, please visit your recruiting thread at: http://lifeisfeudal.com/forum/militarygamers-com-t552. SSR also please help them out by bumping the thread.

Posting Recommendations

We realize not every post is going to result in amazing or extraordinary contributions to the conversation, but we also don’t want to be putting out spam with a simple, “bump” message.  Updating everyone on progress in the MMO or on the Life is Feudal: Your Own server is one of the best ways to keep things going.  Talking about how great training is going or some of our upcoming events or plans is also a solid way.  One of the best ways to push the conversation along is to provide screenshots of progress or just really cool scenic views.  If people can come to our thread to see some great screenshots then they become regular visitors and eventually they may even dig into us more to consider joining.
