I can't believe most of you Americans had the Last two days off and you couldn't play a single PBW turn!!!

Well, if you think I have been able to play anything on the Beaujolais nouveau day, you're reaaally dreaming.

Lots of folks travel to spend Thanksgiving with their family. I only went about 15 miles north, but I was away from the computer for 8 or 9 hours.
And when I got home, it was all I could do to send one e-mail before I lay down to sleep off the meal.

Now what do we have :

1) a specie whose members would sell their mothers for money if it has not been already done.
2) aliens whose members rebell against each others when they are not fighting themselves.
3) an alien feodal society looking for war to avoid infighting.
4) parasit bugs who transform the brain of their host into jelly to serve their purposes.
5) Tyreans struggling not to be stumped uppon.

For this to be a full, complete mess, I just have to make contact with the five tribes.

I am keeping track of all known dirty politic operations, I'll publish all that when it'll be irrelevant.

Again, BRAVO! Sorry about the all caps. Just seemed necessary!

Hehe. If you think the Eifralo are bad now, wait a couple game-years, when I hope to have u\s\e\d\ "pre-owned" ships to sell.

A question for my fellow Historians, and anyone else who's tried their hand at game fiction: what do you find to be the most difficult thing about writing game stories?

I have trouble ending a scene. I haven't been quite satisfied with where my Last two vignettes stopped, but I couldn't figure out where the dialog would go from there.
