History

Founded in the early 21st century, Cloud 9 underwent initial developments within various settings, including the virtual environment known as Star Citizen. Much of the progress that followed has since been redacted, although near the end of that century, some of their citizens opted to enter cryostasis, with the hopes of extending the reach of their community and of their understanding of the universe beyond the scope of the farthest accessible star, to redefine what it means to explore, discover, and create opportunities, but above all else, to have fun, even amidst the torrent and turmoil of inter-galactic conflict.

Members of Cloud 9 were awoken in the early 30th century. Although they survived the great sleep, they remained in their elderly bodies. The technology of the time allowed for improved health and longevity of life and, with that, the members were able to extend their lives. During that time, they acclimated to the new time, the new cultures, and learned of the histories and developments that occurred over the past millennium. Nearly a decade later, they prepared for transferal, and were reborn as newborns containing the knowledge and memories of their previous lives. Just as technology slowed the aging of their elderly bodies, it was able to accelerate the aging of their newborn bodies to their desired ages, then maintain an aging rate of their choosing.

On the 10th of December, 2946, the founding member – who had gone missing in the 21st century – arrived and revived Cloud 9, and in time reunited with the reborn members. It was during this reformation that they discovered that some of the original members, who did not live long enough to enter cryostasis, had an encounter with an entity – only known as the Third Incarnation – intent on advancing them to the next phase, guiding them toward their destiny.

From the moment of its revival, Cloud 9 experienced a real life version of the events that occurred nearly 1,000 years prior. They were no longer characters in a space simulation. They were real, flesh and bone. They died and were revived. They lost their ships and through the feats of technology they were respawned. Again and again. All the while, making progress as an organization and community. All the while, reliving the exact moments that they experienced through Star Citizen.

Later during the course of these events they came across a means of time travel, but it was not fully developed, leading Cloud 9 to experience simultaneously occurring events between the 21st and 30th centuries, between virtual realities and reality itself.

Charter

Cloud 9 has fun, helps others, and enjoys recreation at its best.

Any time someone does not have fun, they should step back then return when they’re ready to have fun.

Any time someone does not receive help, they can ask around and try to resolve it on their own.

Any time someone does not enjoy the recreational use of their time, check out other C9 activities, share with others.

Cloud 9 is truly a safe haven. A place of refuge and security. We promote nonviolent adventures throughout the cosmos for everybody. All humans. All aliens. Even amidst conflict, we hope to attain peace. There will come a day when we may all need to unite to face a new, darker threat.

Cloud 9 has multiple layers of access. Our Allies consist of friends of Cloud 9 and affiliates (clients). Our members include our main members (colleagues) and Cloud 9 citizens. Our leadership is made up of elected officials from among our citizenship.

We have random open adventures in the ‘verse and some announced open activities that our allies and members are welcome to participate in with us.

Our main activities are reserved only for our Cloud 9 citizens, which include our organized efforts, crews, access to our ships and facilities, with which we participate in a variety of professions.
