Hi, everyone. Just a bit of news to share. Trivia has really been a powerhouse lately, and as such we're going to let it spin off into its own department, under the leadership of Goose.

Entertainment will have a bit of a reshuffle, but everything should flow along smoothly enough. For most people this won't change anything at all, but organizationally speaking it should make things easier.

I hope you are all gearing up for using the special logins this weekend!

Happy 2018, OTFers! I know the month is half over, but that's where our year really begins.

We'd like to remind everyone that new people are the way we keep going - please make an effort to make them feel welcome and included when they come.

And to make everyone who is already here feel welcome and included, we'll be having an event this weekend! Ever wondered why Andrew Maxwell keeps accidentally being Sarah Michelle Gellar from the 90s? This is your chance to find out!

From Friday night, January 19th, until Sunday night, January 21st (PST), the special logins will be available for all members to use. Rev your engines and get your avatars and IP ideas ready! We look forward to seeing everyone's best face forward.

Star Wars Trivia Results

After a little hiatus the Trivia Team was back today in full swing! We brought out all the stops! Including a lovely ten minute bleep allowing the participants (and hosts) a small intermission. 

After nearly two hours we crowned our first winner of the year! Our glorious Commander-In-Cheif, Tanya, took home the trophy! The trophy may or may not require some assembly.


RP Results:
Tanya - 9
Nathalie - 4
Tyler - 3
Ayanna - 2
Robert - 1
Leslie - 1


Somehow our CiC Tanya managed to not only walk away with ONE but TWO titles! Woah! Nice work boss lady! But hold on... She shares the Silly Point Champion title with Nathalie! Everyone was absolutely hilarious and I'm surprised there weren't more ties.

SP Results:
Tanya - 6
Nathalie - 6
Leslie - 5
Ayanna - 3
Robert - 2
Tyler - 1


Special Points:
No Spoilers Slipped - Tanya, Nathalie, Robert, Leslie, Ayanna, Tyler, Beth

Indifference Point - Nathalia for hilariously not caring!

Two For One Deal - Robert for guessing both answers to a 2 part question at once!

Momma - Nathalie and Leslie for laughing it up like fuzzballs with momma jokes.

Spookyfish - Tyler for a last minute Spookyfish.

Congratulations to our two winners and to everyone for making our first event of 2018 a huge success, you were all winners! And a big round of applause to our hosting team, Carol and Soka, for an amazing event!

Stay tuned for our next trivia!

Greetings All!

Today, a brand new episode has been added to the Star Wars universe, and along with it a completely new type of creature, the lovable fuzzy wuzzy Porgs.

To celebrate this event, we want to invite you to help these Porgs explore the Fandom multiverse in Spectre's first official art contest! Take them anywhere - Azkaban prison, the Shire, the Promenade aboard Deep Space Nine, Raxacaricofallapatorius ... We just want to see how creative you can get!
Don't like these annoying things? You still can participate. You can show them the less pleasant corners of your favourite universe after all.

This contest's Format is totally open - draw a hand-sketch and scan it in, use your mad MS Paint skills, wow us with Photoshop, take a picture of your porg-potato, anything goes!

How to participate? Just send all your masterpieces to DeBoe, maximum of 3 submissions per chatter. Artwork will be judged among other things on creativity and humor. This contest will close on January 14th, and we'll reveal the winners shortly after!

May the Force be with you, and may the best Porg win!


Thanks,
Your lovely Spectre Agents

  • Affiliation:
Hi everyone,

As previously announced, we put together a special event to commemorate Wookiee Life Day tomorrow.
This will be a caption contest, and the rules will be the following:

- At various times throughout the day, Spectre's resident Wookiee1 will pop up and post a picture in the main chatroom.

- Over the following few minutes, you can post captions that you feel best describe the picture or could be a good quote for some one(s) in the picture to be saying at that time.

- Submissions can be made via posting in the chat or using the armory, provided you identify yourself using your regular handle, from the chat or the spycam.

- If your submission made the ghosts laugh, you will earn a point.

- You can obtain points multiple times for the same picture.

- Submissions made while using the Wookiee affiliation in the CCC or preferably in the Classic CCC will earn double points.

- Any points earned will also count towards your ghostly squad's total. If you haven't asked to be assigned to one, it will be done automatically as soon as you obtain a point.

We hope you have fun. If anything is unclear or if you have additional questions, feel free to ask your nearest friendly Spectre!


1 perhaps we rented one for the occasion, perhaps one of us will be wearing a disguise, we'll never tell.

PS: Remember, droids don't pull people's arms out of their sockets when they lose. Wookiees are known to do that. If I may suggest a strategy: Let the Wookiee win.

Wookiees are a very accepting people and everyone regardless of affiliation will be welcome, but those of you showing up in traditional Wookiee garb will definitely score some extra points with the chieftain!

PS: If you are not yet part of a ghostly squad, don't forget to ask to be assigned to one.

The purpose of this was to form three teams, for a series of events we are planning to host in the next few months.
Anyone who wants to participate in those events will still be assigned teams of course - just ask one of the Team Captains (Hobbie, Shadow and Soka) to be assigned to one.

Thank you all for a wonderful Carol Brent Tiny Trivia! We had a Brentastic time!
Team Carol started off strong, with Carol Keith getting out to an early lead, and with some help from Carol Tanya, it looked like they might take the Carol! But, with the tiebreakers, Brent DeBoe took the lead and Brented his way to a win!

On the SP side, it was a close race, with a tiebreaker point also needed to decide it, but Brent Ray ended up being the funniest Brent who ever Brented.

This looks like a clear win for Team Brent! Resistance is futile. We are Brent

The final scores are as follows!

RP
Brent DeBoe: 4
Carol Keith: 3
Carol Tanya: 2
Beth: 1

SP
Brent Ray: 4
Brent DeBoe: 3

Soka has worked tirelessly for Spectre ever since the team was created. She has been the biggest contributor to our events, is generating countless new ideas and being a tremendous help in keeping others on track, and is always stepping up to cover when someone else is unable to do their part due to life events. While she prefers to stay away from the spotlight and her work isn't always easily identifiable from the outside, she has so far proven herself to be Spectre's most valuable member and is deserving of recognition for that alone.

Al

This award is given out very rarely, but Al's regular contributions to the improvement of the chat experience caused this to come up. His name has been on everyone's lips quite often this past month, for the Halloween chat effects and all the fun we've had with those. But even before that, Al's tireless work has created something that is better and more enjoyable than he found it. So, for regularly giving us something to talk about and tirelessly working to make our elderly hangout space a fun and functional place to be, thank you, Al.

    Greetings, Ghouls and Goblins!

Because having you invent a story wasn't enough, we Spectres invite you to participate in a little game with us.

As with everything we do, all will be revealed in time, but the first step is solving this riddle that relates to a common childhood activity - which naturally makes it a perfect fit here at the Outpost.


Imagine the following scenario:
You are an American child.
It is the evening of October 31st.
You and your friends are dressed as your favorite characters.
The house ahead is decorated with spiderwebs, monsters, and glowing eyes.
Friends push you to the front.
You knock, or ring the doorbell and wait with collection bag in hand.
The door opens.
  What happens next?

If you know the answer, send us the spoil(er)s to otfspectre@gmail.com!

Thanks to everyone who participated in our chain-story event!

While we had dubbed this event "Scary Stories to Tell in the Outpost", in the end it turned out to be only one story, and ... well, it was more funny than scary.
Actually what it fast turned into was a wibbly wobbly ... it got complicated. Which of course is not the same as boring. Somehow it always just barely managed to be nearly connected to our starting-point.
A summary of the story, which was continuously expanded as the story evolved, and some more information can be found on our Event-page.

While we did not announce so in advance, it was possible to earn points during the event.

Final standings:
  Carol 8
  Tanya 7
  Pheebs 7
  Leslie 6
  Goose 6
  Nathalie 3
  Arwen 2
  Michiel 2


Despite what you may believe, points weren't handed out based on bribes however - here are the criteria we were looking for:
  • Continuing the story, after a few others failed to do so
  • Interesting plot twists
  • Hilarious posts
  • 2 or 3 points for unplanned stuff

Hello Marshmellows!

Since we are sure all of you exSpectred us to do something for Halloween, we of course cannot fail you.
Did you ever miss some warmth in the Outpost? No? Some kind of madness, then? This is your chance!

Join us for some Story-Time on Saturday 28th at 22:00 UTC at the nice little campfire someone will light (with or without permission). Some hard deck-plating to sit on also will be supplied.

What the story will be about ... we can't tell you that. And not because we're Spectres this time. We simply don't know it!

This is a chain-story event, in which all of you will help weave a story of ghosts and ghouls - or as such it'll start off. What direction it'll head in - this depends on the warped minds of your fellow OTFers - and yours??
