The poll will be open through midnight on Sunday 118.7.8.

Emperor Releases Statement about Upcoming Holiday

UUNN Newswire

(UUNN HQ)  This morning, Emperor Venticus released the following statement regarding the Octavius Feast of the Fallen holiday, which begins 118.5.25 and runs through 118.5.26.

Salve, Octavius!

Tomorrow we begin the Feast of the Fallen, our High Holiday.  Some have asked why we have not had announcements and scheduled contests.  But to me our Feast of the Fallen is not a party.  It is not a time for games.  This is the time when we of Octavius remember our ancestors … our heroes … because it is they who make us what we are.  And through our honoring and remembering our roots we become stronger in our understanding of what it mean to be Octavius.  It prepares us to become what WE will be.  So as time passes, there can be more great memories to recall on the Day of Remembrance.

True sons and daughters of Octavius know how to properly celebrate this sacred time without the need for published events.  A Day of Remembrance; a Day of Battle; a Day of Feasting.  I urge all to experience each of these days to their fullest.  And in a way that will make our honored heroes and ancestors proud!

Viris en Unitis!

Odd Silence on Oct Feast

UUNN Newswire

(UUNN HQ)  There has been absolutely no word about plans for the Octavius Feast of the Fallen which begins in just two days on 118.5.25.  If the normal cycle was followed, Ares Prime would be hosting and Emperor Venticus would be the official host.  Venticus also currently oversees the Octavius Ministry of Culture — which has not responded to our queries.

The last time Ares Prime hosted the Feast of the Fallen, Clements IV was assassinated during the Recitation of Heroes ceremony.

by Yaz Shanndar

(Solrain Core) Awards for the Festival! 117 have been released — with a couple that were unexpected.  “Festival! is the biggest holiday of the year,” said Garth Taren, President & CEO of TRI Corporation.  “TRI Corporation works very hard and very closely with Solrain, Quantar and Octavius to sponsor a diverse series of holiday events that are available to a broad array of pilots of all levels.  This year we had races, contests, missions, trivia — and even a Haiku-writing contest.”

Taren went on to say that the Festival! holiday provides a perfect platfor for special recognitions:  “Festival! gets everyone’s attention in a unique way because it’s roots come from ALL of the factions.  This year, we are pleased to introduce a new, very prestigious award called ‘Sarath’s Orb,’ and along with that, we are absolutely thrilled that we will be able to announce two Pilots Choice Awards because there is nothing better than being recognized by your peers.” Continue reading
