New Players.

First of all fill in the start-up form. This will take you though the steps to create a nexus account and a ship, and even allow you to submit some orders for the next day. You can have a quick look at the Sign-up Walkthrough to familiarise yourself with the process.

Next familiarise yourself with the game. Introduction gives some some useful links to articles written for Intergalactic News. The library also gives a lot of information. Take some time to read the general forum to have an idea of what is happening at the moment and introduce yourself (IC and OOC if you want).

When you register as a new player, looking for affiliation is automatically enabled so you will see the recruitment forum and you can find an affiliation to suit you. You don't have to hurry to do this, have a chat with people and see who you like the sound of. If for some reason you don't like the affiliation you join you can leave and join another so its not the end of the world. If you don't like the look of any of the affiliations you can stay as Trainee player (TRN) but this limits your ships to a small though relatively safe region of space.

If you have a problem with your start up account not working properly, not receiving turns, or have any other problems then either send Mica a PM on the forum or write to with the statement Phoenix Startup Player Problem in the subject line.

Returning Players.

If you used to play BSE many years ago and want to have a go at this new version then first of all welcome back. If you have no assets in the game then register as a new player and go from there. If you think that you have assets remaining in the game or if there is a particular position that you want to resume then the best thing is to contact Mica to discuss it with him.

Duplicate IP.

If you have already created an account and then try to make a second one on the same IP address you will be prompted to indicate the reason for a second account. In the past people have created false accounts to gain access to more than one affiliation and so moderation of second accounts was introduced. There are many situations where a second account is genuine, such as relations or students living together, so please just be truthful in the start up form.

War, huh, what is it good for?

Apart from Kang’s blood pressure obviously.

*** Message From The Editor ***

As reported last edition, Kang can now confirm that DEN Manticore has fallen to the dreaded Uber-GP of the Empire after hard fighting and much bloodshed on all sides.

Though obviously one side was fielding what Kang can best describe as ‘Naplian cannon fodder’, so they probably care somewhat less than the Dewiek do about their casualties, which include at least two senior political figures, along with many tens of thousands of Dewiek warriors and civilians.

The story is not yet done however, as fierce brutal conflict has continued to spread across the previously peaceful system of Solo…

Kang once again thanks Ellerian of the DEN were details regarding the Solo conflict.

*** Message From The Editor ***

Kang is most pleased that you have chosen to celebrate the 500th edition of the SSS by engaging in a stellar war. Most pleased indeed.

Let bloodshed commence.


***** Inter Galactic News - 500th Edition! *****

*** Message From The Editor ***

Deep in the depths of Kang’s obscure file system, there is a notification that this is the 500th edition of the SSS.

This number is almost certainly inaccurate as there have been times when the file has been saved on top of older editions by accident. But lacking more precise details, join Kang as we celebrate 500 editions of the Peripheries most inherently unreliable news agency, as we toast with burning Wimbles in the traditional Flagritz way.

Let the screaming commence!

***** Inter Galactic Flagritz News *****

*** Message From The Editor ***

Sharp eyed readers might notice a certain Flagritz bias in todays edition of the SSS. This is because only the FLZ and HEX have submitted news stories this week.

Kang doesn’t want to hear any whinging about it. If you want your affiliation to get more coverage in the news, then submit more news stories, either to Kang or to the Nexus.

Prepare for hard FLZ news injection, coming your way at MACH 6!

*** Superior Message From The Editor ***

Kang would like to take a moment from your regularly scheduled dose of bile and hatred that is the news, to thank, yes, thank, those who submit news stories.

Truly, without Kang’s eager band of reporters, the Peripheries finest news outlet would be reduced to an endless series of insults and death threats.

So Kang thanks you for your submissions, lowly meatsacks, may you all die in plasma fire.

Three Flagritz walk into a bar.

Everybody is brutally subjugated.

Time for news.

What is more fun than nailing a Wimble to a wall?

Tearing it off again.


Not that it means much nowadays but we have moved from KJC Towers, though technically Phoenix moved five months ago
