Current Plot: Penumbra
With the construction of new IRW Aylhr nearing completion, Galae'EnRiov Shiarrael t'Rehu visits the Jezerek shipyards and tours the new vessel. During her visit to Jezerek Shiarrael uncovers a conspiracy among some of the Galae's command staff to remove a candidate from consideration for commanding the Aylhr. That candidate? The son of the disgraced former Galae'EnRiov Ameh'ha t'Neyl. Seeing the situation as an attempt by the Zorek clan to exert influence in the Galae she decides to appoint Riov Rhae'go tr'Neyl to command the Aylhr over the objections.
Meanwhile, on the planet eternity in neutral zone, the powerful Zorek Senator D'Nal tr'Parneas is murdered while visiting the war grave of his sons. News of the incident is suppressed until more information about the incident can be gathered. Fearing a greater plot the commander of the fifth fleet, EnRiov Lyna t'Hnea, dispatches the newly minted IRW Aylhr and her crew to investigate the matter quietly.

Current Universe Storyline
It has been fifteen years since the Romulan x Klingon conflict. Under the current regime, stability has returned to the Star Empire for the past decade. Yet beneath the shadows of Empire, internal forces seeking power are slowly brooding, hoping to erode the political dominance of the vast AAnikh coalition. Further from home the suspicious death of a powerful Senator on the planet of Eternity adds to the concern within the great political bodies. How long will these forces remain in the shadows and when will they act?
Meanwhile, a young scion of the AAnikh clan secretly returns to Romulus to further his power abroad. Unbeknownst to him, his arrival has set off a chain of events that will leave the Empire changed forever.
NPCs (Non Player Characters) are a core of any simulation/RPG that wants to have a stable amount of depth. The Aylhr has a plethora of NPCs that interact with the crew on a daily basis (NPCs that are part of the crew). We also have NPCs that are geared towards developing situations and plots. I’ve split these NPCs into two groups: Major Characters who make several appearances and Minor Characters who only make short appearances at random intervals.
Also, the Aylhr often has guests from other games in UCIP who participate for a short time as a plot-centric character. While they are not NPCs they are also not members of the Aylhr so they are listed under the Guest Category.
We have provided a plethora of resources from open archives (we're not scared to keep our email lists open so people can see our quality- if a game keeps theirs private...run!) We also provide a live discord as a means of communication and you can just visit us in the #irw-aylhr room (though during the weekdays we usually don't appear until later in the afternoon pacific time).
If you do join us for a live chat (awesome!) We do ask that you respect other members in the discord chat room.
