I had my first stale turn... Hoped I could avoid them completely, but I was so tired after work that I forgot to send in my turn after I finished.

...And am I going crazy here, or did the next turn get delayed by a day...? I swear working rotating shift messes with my head sometimes.

Default Turn 28: STILL!

You picked a fine time to miss a turn. The server is down, and you have time to send in turn 28! Or maybe you missed 27?

Either way, the server will probably resolve and send out turn 29 immediately after it is back up. So I suggest checking again tonight...

LongBrodie staled on turn 27. LlamaBeast has said that his server will be back up on Saturday, so send in your turn if you haven't already!

While we wait, random banter time~

I'm really bad at arranging armies for pitched battles. I seem to have thug strategy down pretty well (see: TNN), but I thought Hinnom would be better for major engagements. Ah well, hopefully I've learned my lessons soon enough.

Also, I'm buying research boosters.

Default A Dire Potent

So yeah, it turns out that starting this tuesday I'll be gone for about a month and a half, away from any sort of computer. It's good news for me, since it could end with me getting payed. It's bad news for you guys because you'll be down one host.

Any ideas how we should handle this? I don't want to stop this just while it gets interesting.

My idea is to call a winner right now through llamaserver and then in a month once I return get us all together again and do a "part 2" of this game. I'd reserve all of your slots for you and we'd be playing in the middle ages with the MA counterpart of our nation. Just a thought.

Default Ending the game now?

I hate to be a jerk, but it would make more sense for you to find a sub (or a replacement) for those months. At this point, TheNooblies is only just reaching solid mid-game. The host of the game doesn't have to do too much, so you should be able to hand over host responsibilities to someone else in the game.

This game will probably end of natural causes by the time you get back (the winner should be obvious by turn 50, even if they haven't won yet). I would definitely be in for "TheNooblies 2: Newbs rise again!", (like the Middle Era idea). But I really think the showbiz rule applies here.

Sorry man, the game must go on.

I like the idea of Nooblies 2 with reserved slots. But I also believe that you should find a sub and hand over hosting to someone else.

I would be more than happy to handle hosting. My schedule is almost always free and flexible, as I live in Brazil and I only teach English for 4 hours a day, always at the same time.

I check this forum post constantly, and I am on my computer at least twice a day, constantly checking the game status.

The show must go on!

I'll hand you the password in a PM Tal. And who played that-one-nation-who-died? They can have my nation if they want, any idea how to change the Email it send the turns to?

Thanatus del Dragos was playing Agartha. I could send him a PM to let him know that your slot is open. I think that I will.

No Thanks. I appreciate the offer, but not interested.
