Welcome to Valhalla!


Starbase 417, aka Starbase Valhalla, is a spacedock-type starbase located in the Risa sector of the Alpha Quadrant, midway between Risa and Betazed. Home of the 10th Fleet, the 17th Marine Regiment (the "Vikings"), the 31st Air Group (the "Valkyries") and the Borg Research Institute, Valhalla is a bustling hub of Starfleet and civilian activity.

Posted on Tue Nov 30th, 2021 @ 9:26pm by Rear Admiral Anra Dacour in Events

Greetings everyone!

Our first event for the Idols of Fortune mission will be Lohlunat.

The Lohlunat (meaning "Festival of the Moon") is an annual Risian celebration of cultural diversity and hospitality that lures countless tourists from all across the Alpha and Beta Quadrants to Risa each year. In 2399, the festival coincides with the 150th year of Risa's membership in the Federation. Celebrations to commemorate this event will not only take place on Risa, but in several locations across the Federation.

A visiting delegation from Risa will be hosting several cultural events during the month-long celebration on Starbase Valhalla. Events include lectures on Risian culture, music and theatre performances, sporting events, a display of select historical artifacts and holodeck recreations of Risian locations. Personnel are encouraged to take part in Lohlunat traditions, such as story exchanges where a Risian delegate shares an aspect of their culture with you, and in turn you share an aspect of your culture with them.

The festival will take place for four weeks from 2399-09-10 to 2399-10-01. The official opening will be held on the 10th, but delegates and visitors will begin to arrive on 2399-09-01 and as such I've set the start date of the Idols of Fortune mission to the 1st.

Posted on Tue Nov 30th, 2021 @ 9:25pm by Rear Admiral Anra Dacour in Sim Announcement

Greetings everyone!

I'm happy to announce Valhalla is officially open for business. The site is still somewhat under construction, so please ignore any conflicting information you may come across for now. I'm in the process of adding new information to both the Valhalla site and the Sim Central wiki, but in the meantime if you have any questions or need info on something, feel free to reach out to me.

Our first mission will be Idols of Fortune, which will include the Lohlunat event.

In addition, the Prologue mission is available for backstory posts set any time in the past up until mid-2399. I've left the exact cut-off date vague so that it's more flexible.

As discussed before, mission and event participation is completely voluntarily and you're free to write your own stories and subplots as long as they fit into the setting. Details about the missions/events can be found on each mission's page and in the Mission Notes section (when you start to write a new post).

I look forward to seeing you all out there. Happy writing!

Your GM,
Bren
