    The North Sea Alliance still exists in my mind. A France never forgets!

    Sorry to break your party, but the Olympic Games were rediscovered and re-developed by Danish people. That's the reason why the IOC is in Copenhagen.

    I'm about to head out on a rather long drive for the day, still on the hunt for employment once again. It's a tough ole recession out there. The update is making good progress, but being on the move means that internet is not quite a guarantee out there. I'm hoping that the update will be posted tonight, but that's up to whether or not I can recieve internet at where I stop this evening.


    On another note, conversations with luckymoose and justo have encouraged me to start work on the foundations for a A Brave New World wiki. Now, I don't want all of you to start hodgepog with what you know now. Essentially I just want to "smooth the edges" of the alternative history we've created with these two NESes. Therefore, I intend to start over the next couple of days, fleshing out the alterations which would have occurred in the American Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars, as well as the South American wars for independence. I'll post these on the alternate history (or perhaps a new thread) and start working my way up to the start of ABNW 1 in 1830. When (if) this project gets truly underway, I'll start a thread about it, and ask for specifically what we'd need to make it grow. We'll use the thread to set up (and criticize) articles before actually setting up a wiki. I'd appreciate thoughts on this idea, as it really is only in the thought process stage.

    good luck with the drive mate all the best
    the wiki sounds like a good idea especially for new players and working out where the world stands

    Yeah, make it a collection of pages within our current neswiki- we've already done that for several NESes!

    Good luck finding a job, EQ!

    And I for one think the ABNWiki is a great idea. That would be truly entertaining!

    Joining the well-wishers that hope that you get a good job. And that say the ABNWiki would be great. And that hope that the next update will arrive soon. But don't feel pressured. Just post it when you can.

    As I've spent most of this evening being given free drinks from in laws, finishing the update hjsa becomke a nit more difficult. I still apologize for delays, my laptop also doesn't get intrernet here, so I can't post it anyways.

    As fpor the reason I would not include a ABNW wiki with the NES wiki, is because the scale ofd the history and project would be much greater than the size. This is not jkust a project for the NES, but as a effort in alternative history. Thiss would include biographioes, national histories, as well as more minute stuff like the movies/books which have been brought into the world, and lastly, the players themselves, the nations they've played, and influence they've had. This would span our changed history from 1775 to 1940. Fun times.

    I was going to wait until after the update to post this but I guess it doesn’t hurt to post it now. I have determined that I do not have the time play SUSA in the way it should be played. Therefore I am resigning as SUSA and luckily Circuit has agreed to assume control. He will definitely give it the time, energy, and creativity that will make SUSA a stronger nation and thus enhance the over all quality NES.

    Best of luck to Justo and Circuit as they battle the forces of evil.

    Thanks to EQ for modding this NES and to the players who keep things interesting

    I'd still prefer it done on NES wiki for simplicities sake and also to hopefully draw attention to both ABNW wiki and NES wiki and keep both alive.

    I'm confirming that I will be taking over SUSA. Argentina will be missed, but who could pass up the opportunity to take a world superpower? Certainly not me!

    TLJ, I'm after YOU!
