Wow, the unhappiness has derailed somewhat (insert random bubble/derail/poppment picture here), may as well continue here eh? Hope you are well young man/Josh! For shall you keep these threads open I will witness many a brotherly/sisterly/otherly bond taking place on here as well as many speculative threads of awesome Imperical Domination and Doom or Freedom. Old though I may be, mine (and thy) and your children may take pleasure in your realms of glacial space-doom or fiery conflict among the beautiful stars. Even if this shall never come to pass, honestly i thank you for the opportunity to play a truly great game.
Also... chickens! Flee little dinosaurs! Flee for your lives before my children pluck the feathers from your bones.
Also Also, it may come to pass that the mega unhappiness thread migrates here, because, you know, space lanes can be cosmically awesome even though many of us disagree with the implementation? Also space elves may invade or something.
