Resurgence Of Yamatai

Resurgence Of Yamatai is a Star Army of Yamatai roleplaying plot created December 15, 2020 by GM Wes. It is based on adventures of the YSS Resurgence and her crew and is a mix of exploration, slice of life in the Star Army, and action-adventure.

YSS Resurgence won the 2022 Simulation Cup for Outstanding Original Scifi!1)

Plot Overview

With the Kuvexians defeated, the Yamatai Star Empire once again becomes the dominant force in the Kikyo Sector. In the aftermath of a costly war, the newly-constructed YSS Resurgence (Fuji-class) sets out to help the Empire take stock of what is left, both in known and unknown space, and to rebuild not only Yamatai's defenses but its relationships with their neighbors. Players will join Star Army's founder and first game master, Wes, on an epic journey to visit every corner of the Star Army universe as well as expanding it with new levels of detail.​

RPG Rating:

  • L1 (rare profanity)
  • S2 (non-explicit sexual content)
  • V2 (violence but not super graphic)

Instead of just telling players about places on the wiki, I want to show them to players. Why just read about stuff on the wiki, when we experience it through the eyes of our characters? Our ship is basically on a trip to visit as many places in the setting as possible and do a little interesting RP in each. This way, we're improving the setting's detail as a whole, adding history, fleshing out the Star Army universe, and having fun RP along the way.

The plot is a “life in the Star Army” plot with lots of exploration, some smaller-scale combat but not all the time (Kuvexian leftover need cleanup!) and some diplomacy as we visit worlds of other factions and meet non-Yamataian ships. We've started at Yamatai and will work our way out revisiting other places and also discover some new places. There's a lot of already canon systems with very little development that are ripe for building on. I am also open to a player character captain instead of a GM-controlled one.

Accepting new players on a regular basis is a major OOC goal. Would be an “easy flow” plot where people can come and go easily. We will try to invite a lot of guest stars to RP with us and touch the other ships and factions as much as possible instead of staying in an RP bubble.
