Although there are technical variations of what constitutes Haiku, the Library is going with the simple version: three lines with five, seven and five syllables respectively. A title for your haiku is optional. Each entrant will receive 500,000 credits and a Captain’s Commendation badge.
Submissions for all contests must be received by midnight (UTC) 118.11.24 to be considered for an award. They should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
(UUNN HQ) After a week-long flux-hunt with 26 pilots participating, the Samwise Memorial Flux Hunt came to an end last Saturday. The event, which was sponsored by pilot RazorsKiss of squad FluxGuts had pilots of all level rushing to max out their conflux-kill-counts, and even had a few long-missing veterans returning returning to honor pilot Samwise — who, sadly, passed-on last year.
Top prizes for the overall number of flux-kills went to:
All other participants received a Captain’s Commendation for their efforts; and RazorsKiss is being awarded the Echoes of Hope award for his significant efforts in sponsoring, promoting and running the week-long contest. Continue reading →
Alterion RazorsKiss, of squad FluxGuts, announces The First Annual Samwise Memorial Fluxhunt!
(Octavius Core) Pilot samwise, of squad New Dawn, was a wingmate of former New Dawn CAG RazorsKiss, and remains in #2 on the current all-time flux kills leaderboard (post-Catastrophe). He passed away on 116.11.28, but his love for fluxing competitions was well-known to his friends and squadmates. It is hoped that this event will be a fitting tribute and legacy to his steadfast defense against the Conflux, his example to us all as a pilot and friend, and to his legendary service record for New Dawn, Solrain, and TRI.
This competitive flux-hunting event will begin at 17:00 UTC on 118.1.26 – and end at 05:00 UTC on 118.2.4. Entries will be automatically selected from the Flux Kills rankings on JSR – and any interested pilot not on that list may submit a screen capture of their pilot page to enter, at or after 17:00 UTC on 118.1.26.

(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 →

(Cornea Station) STCC’s initial Reconstruction Days holiday schedule did not provide any details about its Name the Heroes event — simply saying that it was a “trivia-type event.” As it turns out it is — and it’s a very fitting topic for Reconstruction Days.
Almost everyone knows the story of The Thrice Seven. They were the seven pilots sent by each faction to test-pilot TRI’s first single-pilot jump-ships. Many had auspicious careers before and after this test-pilot duty. Some had tragic ends.
For 5,000,000 credits and a Seeker of Knowledge medal, name at least five of Solrain’s members of The Thrice Seven. Name all seven and win a PCS-4, too!
