    The Khaordum Naval Service is Recruiting. Enlist to-day and serve with glory and honour.

    A message from Fleet Adm Conrad Owyn Larson:

    Good day to you, one and all.

    The Khaordum Naval Service, in all its great radiance, is once again recruiting. We are looking for any able-bodied mariners and marines to crew our great ships, to represent Khaordum, and to further her interests in the black abyss of space.

    Should you think that you have what it takes to serve this great Navy, find your way to our website: Khaordum, and follow the instructions for enlisting.

    Should you wish to find out more about the Khaordum Naval Service, look to our page on the Space Engineers Wiki: https://www.spaceengineerswiki.com/Faction:The_Fleets_of_Khaordum

    I wish you all the very best of luck in your enlistment, and I hope that you serve with glory and honour.

    Yours faithfully,
    Fleet Adm Conrad Owyn Larson,
    Chief of Naval Staff.

    Information:

    The Fleets of Khaordum, also called the Khaordum Naval Service, the Naval Service, or the Khaordum Navy, is a semi-serious RP faction based around military and industry.

    The faction draws heavy inspiration from Great Britain's Royal Navy, and the lore comes from the fictional universe of Khaordum, created by founder Conrad Larson (Me).

    The faction is comprised of four branches, i.e. The Fleets (Military large ships, termed starships, crewed by multiple people), the Fleet Auxiliaries (Starships of an industrial nature, crewed by more civilian members), the Fleet Space Force (Small ships, termed spacecraft, crewed by a small number of pilots, observers, and gunners, that fulfill a vast array of roles from fighters to troop transports to boarding craft), and the Space Marines (Infantry that protect the starships of the Fleets and engage in Atmospheric and Extra-Vehicular warfare aboard enemy starships and stations).

    Members of this faction are able to choose their preferred branch upon enlisting, but are subsequently allowed to move between branches with relative ease.

    The faction uses three rank systems, detailed on the wiki page; and members are expected to respect other members of any rank, and to listen to those with higher ranks. Advancement through the ranks is decided by the Admiralty Board.

    The Admiralty Board is a group of faction members who hold any Admiral Rank (and the equivalent ranks in the Space Marines) and act like the Staff of other gaming communities.

    [​IMG]
    There are six main fleets, each with different purposes and design philosophies to suit any member. All pictures are of Alterra Naval Defence Fleet ships.

    Thank you for reading this, and I hope you choose to join us.
    Application format:

    SteamID:
    Name:
    (Name you prefer to be called)
    Age:
    (Simply for gauging memberbase demographic, there's no limit)
    Gender:
    (Again for gauging memberbase demographic, as well as certain ranks)
    About You:
    (Just some basic information so I get a feel for what kind of person you are)
    Preferred Branch:
    (You can enlist into any of the four branches, and you will be able to switch at later dates, so it's just preference)
    Reasons for Enlisting:
    (Ok, this is the important part. Impress me)

    News Update: Early promotion expands the Admiralty Board.

    Former Captain William 'Firedog' Cody, the commanding officer aboard the KFS Hellhound of the Aurelia Expeditionary Fleet, has received a promotion to the rank of Vice Admiral.

    V/Adm Cody, while new to service with the Khaordum Navy, is an old comrade of Fleet Adm Larson, having served together as officers in Mesalia (Minecraft RP server). V/Adm Cody's experience with lower ranks alongside Fleet Adm Larson is what has allowed this early promotion, and means that V/Adm Cody now joins Fleet Adm Larson as a member of the Admiralty Board, the administrative and commanding board of the Khaordum Naval Service.

    V/Adm Cody is expected, as always, to rise to the challenge of helping to manage the Naval Service, and we look forward to reporting on his future successes.

    In related news, Shipman Apprentice 'Ironfist' (No name given) has been promoted to Chief Shipman for service with Fleet Adm Larson, and Shipman Apprentice Garrett Conway has also received a rapid promotion to the rank of Commander, for a long tenure of previous service with Fleet Adm Larson in Mesalia.

    Hi Nick,

    Of course the Fleets would be happy to accept you, but you'll need to apply through the official channels.

    Navigate to Khaordum and enlist there, we'll get you in quick and simple.

    Many thanks,
    Fleet Adm Larson

    Application sent! In the question, why you want to join, I wrote a short RP character Bio, I assumed that was what you wanted. Also, on the wiki it talks about 319 vacuum survival course. Based on biology, no one should be able to survive that. Are they accually going out into space for a walk without a suit, or are they just walking through a depressurized corridor? The latter would be challenging, but survivable. The other one would not be survivable.

    The human body can actually survive in space for around half a minute without lasting damage as long as you don't try and hold your breath. This is what course 319 focuses on, the vital 30 seconds you have if you are 'spaced' (Sucked out of a ship) or find the area of your ship depressurised. The course focuses on the absolute worst case scenario.

    Marines are a infantry-based combat force only, and specific training must be undertaken to become a Space Marine, usually resulting in servicemen applying as a Mariner or a Marine, and sticking to that career path.

    Due to the current peacetime we are experiencing, the Marines are not on active duty, and new recruits are encouraged to apply for the Fleets, Fleet Auxiliaries, and Fleet Space Force in order to see active service.

    This doesn't mean Marines are not enlisting.

    To more directly answer your question, the Marines can also be members of the Fleet Space Force, and can pilot spacecraft where needed. This is particularly useful for small strike and infiltration teams, where a Marine pilot allows for more boots on the ground.

    Many thanks, and good luck with your enlistment.

    News Update: First marine joins roster.

    Fletcher Jackson, a 22 year old recruit with a history with the space cadets and the marine corp of sector of t0109 (Now disbanded), has been accepted as the first Space Marine. Though he has yet to undergo training at Spartan Training Station, he is expected to serve with honour and glory, and the Admiralty Board looks forward to watching this recruit take on the role of the most glorious Space Marines.

    In other news Shipman Apprentice Nick Van Riper, who signed both himself and his ship, the HTYM-built Moby Dick, up for service, has been promoted to Master Chief Shipman at the approval of Fleet Adm Conrad Larson. Mstr Van Riper has worked with Fleet Adm Larson before joining the Khaordum Navy, and Fleet Adm Larson takes pride in having given the Moby Dick its name after a light-hearted evening at Hollow Point Station's bar and a passing comment of Mstr Van Riper's 'white whale of a ship'.

    :eek:ops: A post on this thread? My God it's been a while...
    Hey yeah still active.
    Most of the faction, and a few associates, play together on a commonly hosted (Though not dedicated) server, and we're working closely with the UESC and others to set up a dedicated server together.
    I'm currently doing my final exams for the year at university, and suffering from severe Internet issues, and won't be back in any major capacity for around two-three weeks, though I'm still able to check the forums and steam every once in a while.
    My point is the faction is still active, and we are taking applications still, I just haven't been able to check my e-mail account in a little while.
    Thanks for your interest, and the associated bump to this thread.

    News Update: Khaordum expands into the Black Isles.
    Following new orders from Khaordum's High Council, the Khaordum Naval Service has sent an expeditionary force to colonise an asteroid field known as the Black Isles. These Isles are comprised of five main asteroid clusters covering a large area. The Naval Service's orders are to set up multiple facilities around the Black Isles, and to use the resources available to develop new ships and craft for the Naval Service.
    Any serviceman or woman wishing to aid the Naval Service in this effort may sign up directly with Admiral of the Fleet Larson or contact any other serviceman through the Naval Service's wide-area 'teamspeak' communications network.
