Welcome to the USS Mercutio!

The USS Mercutio is an Akira-Class vessel with a rich 20-year history, originally as a live sim. In 2018 she moved to Nova-based simming and hasn’t looked back since. The Merc is part of Obsidian Fleet's Task Force 72-A. We are a character-driven sim looking for reliable crewmembers who want to add a little excitement to their lives.

If you are interested in joining, or have any questions, feel free to contact the CO or XO.

The Mercutio is run under an 3/3/3 (18+ rating). Graphic Violence, light sexual innuendo, and profanity are allowed.
