For new Corporate Stakeholders, this page is one part of the minor amount of required reading you will be expected to digest. Please make time to read through it carefully at your earliest convenience after joining, you’ll be glad you did. When you have or if you have any questions or concerns in meeting these requirements, please do not hesitate to contact Corporate Admiralty High Command, Admiral-in-Chief, Sentar.
Communication, Coordination & Convenience
Speakeasy prizes our mature, helpful and talented community of Captains and Officers, each of whom took the same path outlined below before formally becoming a Corporate Member & Captain. Until these few requirements are met, your rank cannot exceed ‘Commander’, which is effectively “Guest” and provides you with no special privileges.
Any new member or re-join to our Corporate Roster (as shown in HS) shall be provided a ~72h grace period, in which several things must occur:
You must introduce yourself, however briefly. To gain credibility, you should indicate whether and which prior Corporation you were most recently a part, and a short statement which clear characterizes the reason and circumstances for terminating that relationship.
Indicate your primary objectives, and what you hope to get from Speakeasy. e.g., “Red Star collaboration” or “help with how to best advance”, etc.
Acknowledge once you have read this Welcome Document, and indicate your intention to comply with the very few Requirements outlined below. Admiral Sentar is (he thinks) a reasonable person, and open to adjustments to these requirements on a case by case basis, but you must ask and plan to discuss, preferably via Discord.
Notice: Joining our Discord server is required. In particular, you must be verified on the Discord server and utilize the “Tech Bot” to record your current Technology Levels for each available module prior to becoming considered for White Star participation.
Note: We also strive to utilize Discord for many of other collaborative operations, including Red Star coordination.
** Track Module Technology: ** Per above, (#5), Admiral Sentar kindly requests you enter your Technology achievements into our Tech Database, and occasionally update this information as you advance. This database is used intensively throughout planning and executing each WS engagement.
☰ No Political Statements or Discussions ☰All Members, regardless of rank, are absolutely, positively prohibited from insinuating, suggesting, hinting and especially from directly stating or referring to any and all sort of political discussion or remarks. Please abide, failure to adhere to this particular rule is subject to very low tolerance and you may be summarily kicked if you violate.
For obvious reasons, it is highly recommended you remain logged in and utilize Discord for all types of discussion beyond some quick back and forth. It’s also a great place to ask questions, because the answers can be saved and repurposed either for this site or to provide as a resource in the future (special reference).
Please designate the same handle in Discord and HS to avoid unnecessary delay and confusion.
In order to see historical Discord conversation you must be authorized by Sentar; this requires simultaneous login and “live” verification but only takes a minute.
Technology Research & Status Reports
★ MANDATED Entering and maintaining the accuracy of the Speakeasy Corporate Fleet-wide Technology Database is handled by each Captain, and a “bot” that is logged into our Discord server 24x7. Please learn more and feel free to ask questions after visiting TECH.
Remember: When you succeed, the Fleet succeeds. Those of us that have “been there” are eager to help you avoid the mistakes we made, and happy to answer any questions or respond to any ideas you may have. Do not hesitate to “Ask An Officer”. All Speakeasy Officers have been commissioned in part because they are willing to help their team members, especially newer or junior Captains.
Basic Overview of Speakeasy Corporation & Fleet Operations
Native Star Operations (Yellow or Home Star): “NEST”
To learn what the ancient Admiralty through to Admiral Sentar have gathered about optimal home system operations, be sure to check out NEST!
Red Star Operations: “REST”
Red Star focused material is largely contained to this substantial page on the site, REST.
White Star (WEST) Fundamentals
We have two pages on the site dedicated to familiarizing Captains with our approach to White Star engagements. Understand that we take a highly strategic, very deliberate view toward execution and customize a plan to fit the participating Captains, our available technology (modules and tech level) and further tune that plan with all available information as the White Star itself is revealed, including enemy recon.
Find the basic here: WS101 and then move on to the more advanced topics at WEST.
Blue Star Advice (BEST)
Look here for the most recently updated “best practice” for Blue Star battles. Understand that so much depends on what modules you have and at what level that it is difficult to provide highly detailed guidance, but there is good general information here that should be real help to Notice-Intermediate (Blue Star) Captains. hades.st/best
