One year ago (okay, okay... plus 11 days :p), Unity officially began with this post. In that year, we've moved uh... well, we're past our prologue phase! :D

Obviously, our pacing is much slower than VIII, which was real time... often with disastrous effects on character development. This is nicer. There's no gun to everyone's head or freaking out because a calendar date comes up while you're half a Galaxy away. We're more laid back, relaxed... even if we're holding the line on not inventing planets, warlordism being dead, and the Vong being eaten by a giant spaceborne Lindsay Lohan. :p

Over the last year, there have been troubling times. We had a rocky transition over from VIII. Some might argue it's still on-going. ;) The background plot (read: setting up the invasion of the Galaxy :p) moved slowly and occasionally hung up in unfortunate places. At times, activity has dropped to a few posts a week. But we always pulled through, stronger than before. We're not plagued by interpersonal conflicts that bleed from IC to OOC and back, we're not dogged by counting credits (though I occasionally miss it), complicated battlesystems (which I miss less frequently :p), and on the whole we're a friendlier, tighter-knit crowd.

In the future, I look forward only to more success. Daara, of course, will continue to push out from her beachheads and leave the Galaxy quaking in fear, shaking in its boots... and pissing off a few firebrands to form resistance movements. Oh, how Riene loves the resistance movements... :twisted: Meanwhile, the Remnant will have to adapt to the losses sustained, internal divisions, and the radical shift in governing. The New Republic will face mostly similar issues. And the Galactic Union... well... let's just say we have something special planned for them. ;)

So, here's to another year—hopefully, a little faster-paced :p--of Unity!

Can I get a yah yah!?

Or better yet, BOW CHICKA BOW WOW! (Or Hey chicka bum bump, or Bow Chicka arff arff, or bump diddly bump bump, or jay chicka bump arf ferf nack bark bark...Which ever you like)

Yeah, I like the laidback feel of this game. It's very easy for me to develop my characters, and I don't need to worry about have a check book with me everywhere :p If I had gotten into VIII, I probably wouldn't like RPGs because of keeping track of a story, ship, credits...And actual real time in everything.

...
This is much better :p

It's hard to believe it's already been a year. I really can't articulate how happy I am that Unity was a success. There was a lot of doubt within CMAC in the first days—I think we all had some fears due to the failure of the VIII economic reforms—but it's great to see that those fears were baseless. I hope you all are enjoying the game. I know I am, even if my activity is slacking off a bit due to school. :p

Here's to another year! :D

I hadn't noticed that it had been a year already... I actually thought this started just before summer started. But then again I practically make a point of not keeping track of trivial stuff like time. :P Three cheers and stuff, and maybe I'll make twice as many IC posts this year as last :roll:

Yay!!! I am thrilled to be playing here. It is a lot of fun :D . Great cast of characters all around the board, and players worth talking to. I agree the mood is a lot lighter than VIII.

Many thanks to CMAC!

We really ought to have Morgan and Zero meet up sometime. You know, with him being a guy who loves to mess with technical stuff and the like and wishing he could test cyborg tech*, and Morgan being an only half-human cyborg...I can imagine some real fun stuff happening there. :P

*(Assuming I remember what I've read about him right)

What, I never said anything about cutting people up or the like.

Where would you possibly get that idea?

:P
