      Hey, think I could get your help looking over a story for TNES? :) I'm on #nes if you could hop on I'd greatly appreciate it.

      Hey man, would you be down to world build with me that concept sometime soon? It'd really help to get a storyboard going :)

      Reading Sparrow... this book is well-written. D:

      It will go on the map, but every "province" will have an entry in the spreadsheet, too, so the records are corroborated there. I plan to have it so that players can see at a glance, either using the map or the OoB, where their forces are deployed.

      It's super simplistic and actually my NES is pretty much just going to be a tarted-up Superpowers set in 1914, but I like being able to show people what their discrete combat forces are, and I think everyone likes to be the mustachioed general in the war room with their croup sticks, and you get a good sense of being a commander-in-chief if you can see what you're commanding!

      Haha well what I posted is in super-duper-alpha - really more a proof of concept of what Sym was saying than anything else. Like, showing that you can easily model the corps-level fighting forces of WW1-era France. Divisions would require 2-4 times as many subordinate units; regiments 2x that in turn; etc.

      So, uh, basically what's going on there is it keeps the number of small guns, machine guns, big guns, as a proportion of the total fighting strength (represented by manpower), and also includes support personnel and cavalry. Then Morale is generally on a real number scale (starting at 0.9 just because), and I have extra stats - organization, mobility, tactics - that represent the skills of the generals.

      So close to finishing this story. I'll be mad if I wake up to an update. :(

      Can we do DnD at 9, not 8? I'll be finishing up dinner at 8.

      City renaming proposal: Croalle in the Exalai Sartashai to Talephaion. (The Exalai really like Talephas, for obvious reasons.)

      Is there a particular shade of red you want?

      I intentionally didn't make any commentary as to the actions of the (potential) Seventh Aitah because 1) She's out of my control, and 2) I don't want to be seen to have benefited OOC from that whole brouhaha.

      Hey, when you are #NES today, do you mind sending me a message?

      I have fallen for Iyeoka. Her music/poetry cross is hitting all the right spots. :p

      Well, except like you aren't around to talk about all the horrible things going on. Like how we have orders due in two weeks. :p

      Should I launch the NES this weekend anyway? I've got more than enough to do so.
