Looks good, welcome aboard! I think there's space for one more slot in the main party. If there's still a lot of interest I might take a few people on board for various encounters later on, on an individual basis. There's still a few bits I'm working out in my head as far as how things will proceed ...

Looks good! I'd note that the APC won't be a lot of use, though. While there are large tunnels and chambers, most of the traveling is going to be done in fairly cramped quarters. Vehicles on the scale of a motorcycle/ATV would be more useful. The Russians are going to be bringing horses along :P Thi...

The Tunnels of Mars [FT/OOC/Planning]

A century has passed since the end of the Great Martian War, the great war machines have long been dismantled, and that cold, calculating intelligence across the vast gulf of space is no more. And yet, something remains. When humans arrived some ten years ago, there was little enough left of the onc...

Drinking flavored vodka. Who ruins perfectly good vodka by putting foreign substances in it?! That's like putting pineapple on pizza!

Greetings, everybody. It's been a while.

To give you an idea of just how remote, getting to 'civilization' involved an airplane. C...

The Russian Empire employs an alternate dimension for its FTL needs. The Etherway is a vast network of mostly unexplored tunnels similar to the good ol' Webway we're all familiar with, complete with various betentacled horrors lurking in it which will happily attempt to eat your ship, which is why i...

I'd bet somebody in the pharma industry is behind the charges. His antics were drawing attention to what is a common practice that has, generally, gone unnoticed in the US.

Now all the hubbub about drug prices will die down since there's no figurehead to hate on.

It might be considered unfortunate if you're Kenyan, or maybe have some Tasmanian aboriginal ancestry. Amoung other examples.

The dumbest invention of the Russian Empire is the sad and unfortunate political-economic philosophy that was Leninism.

Okay, so I'm kinda stuck for how to run my first RP with this nation. It's a pretty standard 'left earth-that-was' nation which got separated, developed in isolation, and now believes itself to be the only civilisation around.

Alexander the Great's greeks, were pretty effecient, but they wouldn't even compare to the mongols. They managed to craft the biggest land empire in 90 years, only being defeated by the British in size and might. Not really, since it fell apart with his death. And there were lots of empires larger ...

So after just a week of owning Empire I have learned that artillery is awesome. Right click to make the world bleed. Grape shot is fucking GLORIOUS! It's even more effective if you aim it manually. The automatic aiming targets the extreme left (from the artillery's point of view) of the unit. I fin...
