Ok, story time then crazy idea time:
I see a lot of individual crews having their own adventures, but I don't see anything uniting these crews in a cohesive universe (other that posting the stories on this forum). It reminded me of another game, Warhammer 40k, where you would go and fight your individual battles but there was only this nebulous link to the greater overarching storyline. However, every summer they used to have a big campaign where your battles would count towards objective for your faction, and there was this online map where neat things would happen if you and your allies won enough games. It was substantially cool.
Here enters the crazy idea. What if I were to make such a site for Artemis? Individual crews could register their ships, then go on the missions from the site. Afterwards they would document their mission outcome, thereby effecting an overall campaign. Then after a certain period of time the campaign would end and the points would get tallied, then a new campaign would start based on the outcome of the last and along the way we could create this whole big fleet and a universe of interacting stories.
To add variety, crews could register their ships with a specific specialty. There could be combat ships and exploration ships, as well as medical and scout vessels. There would be missions for all classes of ships, but there would also be special missions for each of the specialties to let them do cool stuff along their chosen lines.
It's still really in the planning stages, but I wanted to take a sounding from the community before I went crazy with it. So, what do you think?
