The World of Artemis

This section includes all non-canon works written by and for fans of Artemis: The Spaceship Bridge Simulator.

Canon and BackstoryMaps, timeline, and in-universe documents detailing the conflict between the Terran Star Navy and the Alien Hegemony.



TSN RP Community

The TSN RP Community is a group of players that meet on a regular basis to play Artemis Spaceship Bridge simulator online. It was created by players for players and is open to all those that wish to play as officers of the TSN. Click the link above to go to the TSN RP Community Homepage and find out more about us.


About the Community

The TSN RP Community was officially launched in March 2013. In the beginning, the community consisted of only a few regular players, and one ship: the TSN Falcon. Since then, it has continued to grow and evolve. As of January 2015, there are around 30 - 40 people attend from across the world, and there are five fully operational ships, with a sixth and seventh ship often used when numbers are especially high.


All officers in the community aim to create the best experience possible, and operate in the most effective ways. The Community has developed and established very clear and effective protocols and procedures that allow crews to fulfil this aim, and these make TSN RP bridge crews some of the best around. Far from being exclusive, the community always welcomes new officers, and helps train them to become part of these crews.



United Stellar Navy RP Community

In October 2015, a new roleplaying group formed. Taking the name of the now-inactive United Stellar Navy, they focused on internet based gameplay and prioritizing the fun and community aspect of the game over technical ability and tactics. Additionally, they have an equity statement and three founding guidelines:

  • The United Stellar Navy has one purpose: to help people have fun playing Artemis. We do this by hosting games ourselves, building a developing and persistent story line, and by welcoming and giving training to new players and people who want to play.
  • Any crew may call themselves a crew of the United Stellar Navy provided that, as a crew, they have no other outside affiliations. The only requirement for membership is a desire to play Artemis.
  • We speak out against exclusion of people and recognize the value of a diverse community, and encourage cross-cultural leadership.



Community Teamspeak

Currently there are two main community Teamspeak servers for use by the general public. To connect up to them, enter in the server addresses below into the connection window on Teamspeak.


ArtemisSpeak.org - The oldest of the Artemis Teamspeaks, this is the one most frequently used for pickup games and the community in general.


comms.terranstellarnavy.community - This server is the home of the TSN RP Community. Hosted by the TSN RP Community, the busiest time is on Saturday when the community meet.
