"At the pre-emptory request of a large majority of the citizens of these Galactic Planets, I Jim Norton, great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandnephew of Joshua Norton The First, Emperor of the United States and Protector of Mexico, declare and proclaim myself the First Amaranthine Emperor of The Entire Universe." - September 17, 2966
Tactical and Strategic uses for drones Seems to me that people are thinking about drone warfare in fairly simplistic terms, for the most part just using them to paint blocks of sectors in their color.
PVP, Space and You In the last couple days I've been called a "mother fucker" in open chat and I've been called a "Fucktard" in pm because of the way I play this game, i.e. pvping. I'm actually a pretty damn nice guy and I like to help people out. I'm not a "fucker/fucktard" or any of the sort.
Welcome freshly thawed Popsickles Remember to read through the assorted and varied posts found within here, The Popsckle's Guide to the Universe, and within The SSW Help Desk forums. There are a lot of very helpful posts. Explaining such things are basic game mechanics and how the game runs.
History, according to Vonbek the chronically hallucinating: The Amaranth In the year 2946, a little known society called The Order of the Amaranth rose up from the shadow of the dark earth and took military control of Empire of United States and all her protectorates and outer space colonies. In the subsequent years, diplomatic battles and warfare raged, in secrecy and in broad day dark, all over the universe. First to fall was the Yee-hawdian Confederacy of United Theocratic States. Soon after, the Solarian Republic capitulated under circumstances many have come to call "suspicious". With the fall of the Yee-hawdian and Solarian states, the Order of the Amaranth took effective control of munch of the universal belief systems. Predictably, planet states great and small, with out the religious succor they have grown complacent to, and poisoned from the inside by the preachings of Amaranthian controlled religious organs, slowly imploded to the will of the Order of the Amaranth. On the fateful Day of Universal Independence, the Seventeenth day of the Nineth month of the Two Thousand Nine Hundred and Sixty Sixth year of our Amaranthian calendar, Joshua Norton officially took control of Universal governance, becoming the first Emperor of The Entire Universe.
