Like I pointed out on my original post, SEB is barely used for the original purpose of what the room is supposed to be (People please! Chat logs are public! Just because you are alone in the room doesn't mean they can't see what happened!). The SEB part of the of forum is also under used.

I know people did not play at Pharos because it wasn't part of the RhyDin universe and therefore couldn't play their usual character(s). Not many like to start from scratch. But now we have SEB and even the current space/tech characters do not frequent the room. My idea was to bring some of the work that was done for Pharos, like the races, and integrate them to RhyDin to promote SEB more and create more interest. Not to bring Pharos to RhyDin.

I strongly want to encourage those who had Pharos characters to bring a RhyDin version of them to SEB.


I just wanted to say that I personally thought that Pharos Station was a BRILLIANT idea, and I was sorry to see it go. In my humble opinion, it was even better because it was separate from Rhy'din.

That being said, I could get into bringing elements of that concept over to RDI/SEB, though unfortunately it would be difficult to bring the Halcyon Order to Rhy'din (what with there being Jedi already here and all). But a local branch of the Jedi has potential, I've been seeing quite a few Star Wars characters popping up here and there of late.

Honestly I see no reason why you couldn't bring the Halcyon Order to Rhydin. Why should the Jedi be the only game in town?

Plus, to be honest, we're not seeing much at all from the Jedi in SEB anymore - not for a long while.

If you'd be happy reinstating the Halcyon Order, then I say go for it.

A big problem people had was the disconnect from Rhydin and the RDI. So why not a space station where the RASG pilots can also contribute. Might even make for some interesting cross over.


I realize this comment was made a while back, however, there was a space station in orbit called Gateway Station or GS1 back when the SEB was part of the SESF. That setting could be used now for stories. To my knowledge it was never written that it was destroyed or anything.

Gateway Station is alive and well. It's also called "The orbital facility" by some. It is a large space station in geosynchronous orbit directly over Star's End Spaceport - its functions are many. It is where ships that cannot land on a planet can dock, it's where the HUGE ships get parking orbits. It's got living areas of its own, a commercial district, an Academy where many college-level courses are handled. It is a spaceborne, orbiting extension of the spaceport, falling under Star's End Port Authority.

There is going to be a lot more fleshed out about Gateway Station coming up in the next few months, please feel free to contact us if you have questions/ideas ,etc.

I don't see why you couldn't bring a Halcyon Order to RDI ... except, in my opinion, the characters and mostly the story lines that were created during that time in Pharos would be the most difficult part and probably best left separate from the world of RDI as Pharos was always intended to be. Sha'uri in Pharos is not the same as Sha'uri in RDI. I would think there would need to be some separation of those two. In fact, I would rather that the two storylines never cross. But the elements in them and perhaps some of the concepts could be created for RDI purposes. Like the same concept you had for the Halcyon could reside in an RDI setting. They were a little different from the Jedi. Why couldn't they be in RDI setting too? And who's to say it didn't begin with Aquil... his story does have him separate from the Jedi last I understood. You could make a new beginning for the Order. just a suggestion.

How many years has it been? My Pharos Station vesion 0f Dora remains abandoned in the maze of mine tunnels in the Anaconda Mine System.

She is still alive and I have made up stories about how she survived all this time but they will never be told.

It was difficult to keep writing alone, without the energizing boost from real live RP.

I think I will dig her up and let her visit Star's End. Her name there will be Dora Rita Lynch. What became of the writings, I have no Idea. I might still have copies of the posts to jog my memory , so she can begin again.
