    Brockelhurst, you were the friend of hardboiled right? I think that if, by sometime this evening (for us PST types anyways), Shepherd hasn't joined, than I think it'd be fine for you to join. I'll send you the link if thats the case and if the rest of group 2 doesn't disagree.

    game 3 hasn't had anyone join for close to 24 hours.

    I can understand missing the notification for the RPS inbox, but that also means there is little interest in playing the game. move up, peolple :)

    edit: classic wrong-provening at time of writing. we are now 6.

    First I want to profusely apologise, I did not mean to tease but I will not be playing. Last night I read a players FAQ on the game and legitimately enjoyed the prospective of digging into a long burn strategy. On the last page however he mentioned tech trading and it stopped me cold.

    Reason being these games henge on diplomatics as it is, but the suggestion that at great profit technology can be shared is problematic at best.

    Any messages that can be transmitted can be decoded, in star empire warfare sending the keys to your latest tech to a foreign ally would require a massive encryption key, if a ship had to deliver it, and thus a blockade be able to stop it maybe as a mechanism I could tolerate tech trading.

    If technology could be stolen ala node teams in SMAC, intercepted or better yet intercepted and adjusted then retransmitted so that it seems to work perfectly but it's actually a trap of sorts I would adore the game for its subtlety. But right now you choose and depend on a distant ally, to both not sell on what you share with them but also not to drop out of the game and leave you falling behind. It's like the most fierce solium infernum machinations mixed with the same issues that break Civ 1 mp (they had a switch to eliminate tech trading later) made real time and stretched over a month.

    Those who still want to play knowing all that, in I love yall, but you crazy.

    Edit: Or being able to salvage technical from defeated fleets, or even from battle debris from battles you weren't involved in.

    I just want to make sure I understand this right. We have to wait for a PM which will tell us where to go and which lobby to join etc?
    I ask because I haven't received any such message yet and I just want to check that this is because it hasn't been sent yet and not because I'm being an idiot and not looking in the right place?

    Either I throw myself into it obsessively or I wouldn't be having fun.

    I'm sorry if I'm upsetting anyone with this, but I want to get this thing going. We want to play Neptune's Pride with some RPSers.

    edit: can't we just post the password here? most of this thread is "first come first serve" anyway

    Hopefully I've not tread on any toes, but Lord Spaceinvader of the Tentacled Empire of Alioth has joined game 2.

    Fear my squidlings.

    I've taken my first actions of the day and I'm going to try to keep up with the writing. I love the art for the different aliens.

    Art is good, but I don't think I like whatever's blowing out of my tail...
