Due to computer issues, I may miss tomorrow night's session. I will try to get them resolved before then, but no guarantees.

So Altaris mentioned the Stellaris game planned is a short game, small world etc. I may join in this case. However i think its worth looking at this list:

I did? :P

Honestly, I'm not sure what the Stellaris plan is, I think it was Aphro's idea. I would be interested in playing, it seems like it'd be a lot of fun and wouldn't be a huge time commitment (maybe 7-8 weeks). If you guys start one up I'd be down for playing, but also completely understand if you're wanting to keep this time slot open for HOI4.

Hasn’t recovered from being kicked over? You must have really done a number on it!

What can I say? That encirclement was extraordinarily painful.

@virtualrock , would you be able to play today in HoI4 if Harbringer can't make it as Canada?

Harbringer stated that he is having computer problems.
Or is there another player who might be able to step in?

This moment has been brought to you by ummd and Greyhound, shattering armies (and hope) of minor nations since 1939!

You can jump in if you want to. However, understand that Canada's army was destroyed last session. So Canada might not be the best option.

Might be useful to have a Canada player tonight. Aren't the new Canadian troops about to finish the training queue?

"Witty" might be a bit too generous, GH

A dreadful silence.


A dreadful silence fell

across the conference table as the commander of the Vl'Hurgs, resplendent in his black jewelled battle shorts, gazed levelly at the the G'Gugvuntt leader squatting opposite him in a cloud of green sweet-smelling steam, and, with a million sleek and horribly beweaponed star cruisers poised to unleash electric death at his single word of command, challenged the vile creature to take back what it had said about his mother.

The creature stirred in his sickly broiling vapour, and at that very moment the words "I seem to be having tremendous difficulty with my lifestyle drifted across the conference table."

Unfortunately, in the Vl'Hurg tongue this was the most dreadful insult imaginable, and there was nothing for it but to wage terrible war for centuries.

Eventually of course, after their Galaxy had been decimated over a few thousand years, it was realized that the whole thing had been a ghastly mistake, and so the two opposing battle fleets settled their few remaining differences in order to launch a joint attack on our own Galaxy - now positively identified as the source of the offending remark.

For thousands more years the mighty ships tore across the empty wastes of space and finally dived screaming on to the first planet they came across - which happened to be the Earth - where due to a terrible miscalculation of scale the entire battle fleet was accidentally swallowed by a small dog.

Those who study the complex interplay of cause and effect in the history of the Universe say that this sort of thing is going on all the time, but that we are powerless to prevent it.

"It's just life," they say.
