    @Theryman:Oooookkkk....then......:shifty:
    This is a highly descriptive narrative, one that ties historical narrative with humorous commentary.
    Smilies!

    So let me get this straight. You're wanting me to continue the story? :lol:

    Okay, yes, I'm a little off my schedule. When I started this Civ Tale in February, little did I realize it would take me a whole year to finish it. But if we're gonna be realistic that's probably a realistic completion date. Just remember that for every one paper you write in school, I have to read, correct, grade, and possibly read a revision of about 90 papers. So nanny nanny boo boo.

    I actually got around to playing the game I'm storying here last weekend, but honestly, I haven't even come by to read other people's stories in at least six weeks (the little log-on counter dealy saying "you last visited on Sep 04, 2006"). I'll try and whip out a chapter or two this coming weekend. Just to keep you mooks happy.

    Ah, and here's a little tiny google map to tide you over. Rusafr1800.jpg

    :cry:

    For a teacher, you are not so good with words, and keeping them.

    Err... I dunno what that means.

    Just be patient. I'm only in high school, and I having troube making time to work on my story. I can't imagine what it'd be like for a teacher.

    And now, a haiku from Theryman:

    Oh poor BuckyRea,
    Where are you right this second?
    Quit work, play Civ now.

    I hope nothing really did happen to him. If someone got in a wreck on the way home from work how would we the other posters ever learn of it?
    Let's all pray for Bucky's saftey.

    I have had this happen to me before. It is very, very sad whenever you lose someone, even online.

    But it is not likely- much more, though, he simply gives too many essays. LAY OFF THE PAPERS, TEACH!

    Great story! I've been reading for quite a while as a lurker here on the forums, so I decided to officially formalise my reading by subscribing! Looking forward to updates. ^_^
