And Crispin Crispian shall ne'er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remembered-
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he today that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap while any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.
~Henry V, William Shakespeare
The term Band of Brothers has been used many times through out history, to signify a group of people united in a single goal. We use this term with the same view. We to are united in one thing... to play. We are simmers, roll play gammers, from D&D, Traveller, Star Trek, BSG, Star Wars, anything that can be simmed.
Each simm in this group is Independent, with no 'fleet admiral' telling you how to play. If it is a millitary style simm, your rank does not carry over to the Out of Game areas.
Each of us are a person, and like all the other persons, we laugh, we cry, we joke, love, and live.
There are a few reasons to simm; to tell the stories, to bond with simm-mate, and to make friends. As such we have a place for that here. Safe Haven and The Band of Brothers
Safe Haven is a social forum, no fleet politics are involved, just a place to hang out, play, talk, joke, commiserate and make friends. All are welcome, join the forum and go to the introduction where you can say your a real person.
The Band of Brothers is a group of simms, if your interested in bringing a simm in the only qualifications is it has to be independent of any fleet, it has to be active, (2 players, 20 players, it don't matter as long as your playing) Just send me your request, site links, (for both site and where you play if it is two different places) and we will get you put into the system.
Zulu Fleet has joined the Band of Brothers.
The discovery of Wormhole X747 in 2379 was fortuitous for the Federation. It gave them a jumping point into the Delta Quadrant. It was an opportunity they took quick advantage of.
Upon confirmation that the wormhole was what they considered safely stable, they immediately set about preparing to establish a foothold where they never before dreamed possible in their lifetimes.
The Admiralty of Starfleet and the hierarchy of the Federation secretly sent a corps of engineers and builders into the wormhole with orders to set up a Star Base from which operations of an elite fleet of men, women, and star ships could be based.
Using old fashioned modular building technology, a Space Dock class Star base was fashioned from pre fabricated units and late in 2385, the engineers declared that Star Base Zulu was ready to be populated.
Over the next eighteen months, Star Fleet covertly observed, tested, and interviewed potential candidates for the elite group that would represent the Federation of Planets in the Delta Quadrant. By 2387, only eight short years later, Zulu Fleet was established with the promise of exploration in the Delta quadrant and the backing of Star Fleet and the Federation.
Friends of The Band of Brothers Simming Association
It's a cold hard world out there, that's why we all need friends. The Band of Brothers Simming Association is very happy to have them. Our friends are listed below.
Like Band of Brothers and Safe Haven, Smallport is a little group or community that has been around. Both simms in Smallport are members of the Band of Brothers. They have shown that they are friends of ours so I wish to do the same.
I paticularly like their choice in webpages. So drop by Smallport, and look around. Also be sure to stop in at Safe Haven and tell him hi.
The GFCC is a collection of fan fic works, some of which are published in the Band of Brothers main page, ( A Tale of Klingon Hearts and A Q Christmas Carol ) Be sure to drop by and see them, read some of his works.
I have. ;)
AJJE Games offers a unique, rich environment for text-based role-playing in a variety of genres.
Another group after my own heart!! That's why I am happy to call them friends.
Like the Band of Brothers, Phoenix Roleplaying is about having fun, it's a place to simm and write. And like us they cover a wide variety of genera.
I am proud to call them our friends!
