Hi Dawnstar. We do have some people who are EU and some off-hour US people, not a giant amount, I'd guess STO as a whole is US-heavy. Our weekly event times were selected to attempt to accommodate both, though.
*Flails* Hello everyone! I has question! I'm a newly returned player to STO (havnt played since beta ._.) and looking to explore the RP scene a little. Is it possible to find/Hang out with people from Argo? Bear in mind I am on EU time.
You've taken the right first step! Our forums play a large part in what we do-- for passing information, for event planning, and sharing our abundant creativity.
What makes Task Force Argo unique as a role-playing guild?
It's hard to find 'good people' to hang out with on the internet; we've cultivated a wholesome environment that treats others with maturity and respect.
For me personally, the OOC 'culture' is fantastic. I don't really feel uncomfortable with my fleetmates or what they're saying/joking about, and wonton profanity is null-- as a woman on the internet, that goes a long way.
We all have other obligations and we all realize that STO isn't at the top of the list. You put in as much as you want to; if you need to take a break, that's fine. If you can only log in once a week, that's fine. Our 'boot' policy is 'three months with no explanation', and even then, if you come back and want in, it's an instant re-invite.
We encourage member contributions-- we're here because we all love stories, and we want to hear yours. Plots and events are not restricted to officers only-- we just ask that you check in with an officer first for timing and quality assurance.
More fond of forum RP, story writing, or world-building? That's what our forums are for, with our UFP databanks and Captain's Logs.
Your next step is to fill out an application. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact someone on the admin team:
