    I'm sure in portugese in your mind, this sentence made perfect sense, but to me, something was def lost in translation `
    i'm not sure what in the world you're saying? :lol:

    i *think* i should have a new PH game this weekend, but also know i have slots reserved for some original DMers. perhaps I'll even need to start them as just DM games as I may need to go on a 'stay-cation,' and be out-of-pocket (in the truest sense of the word) at times, and would need them to keep the ball rolling so to speak ~ plus it's been awhile since i've played with im, fox, and ozzie, and not to mention rolo and pigs and the list goes on . . . [remember pholk: you can ONLY BE IN ONE GAME, DO NOT START TWO!!] :nod:

    my students' grades are due by tomorrow night, so I'm finishing them tonight and will play tomorrow.

    Man, what did you guys do to this SG? It's like playing the lottery :p Either someone's got it, or no one's got it :lol:

    @Pholk: nothing to be sorry about. You trained them well enough that they can take over when you went MIA, but you also didn't train them well enough to lose with style without you around ;) and they went behind your back and won it instead.

    i'm sorry ~ i've been working on a multi-part ending-in-style and should've let you all know ~ i can just post the results and the replay if you want, but give me some time, and I think it'll be worth it....

    Exterior: Space, in orbit, 600 kilometers above the former Annexed Territory of Iran, 2746 AD

    Fighters fill the sky, darting about, firing lasers, and exploding. The camera is zooming in on a large Simian Confederation battle cruiser marked HMS Davey Jones. The cruiser is under heavy fire from several human capital ships and dozens of heavy bombers. the camera follows a missle as it leaves a launch tube from a MkIII Terrestrial Mid-Range Bomber (Hell Hound). The torpedo narrowly dodges several shots from the Davey Jones' forward ion cannons and slams into the hull, just beneath the bridge. We see apes in the bridge falling, flying, and dying from the missile's concussion. Camera zooms in, through the bridge glass and into the bridge.

    It appears to be but seconds after the Simians supposedly activated their temporal hyper-drive . . .

    Mr Chimps



    WHAT was that?!?

    Cornelius (Science Officer)

    I *think* it worked captain. I think we all experienced that horrifying reality . . . where humans took over the planet.



    [The ape shudders at the thought.]



    JoJo



    So . . . where are we now??

    Cornelius

    You’re in jail. . . and it’s not where . . . it’s whe—

    Mr Chimps

    Oh, shut up with that!! And who’s Primate Pants is this?!?



    Lucy



    Captain? What should we do now?

    Mr Chimps

    I –

    [Explosions rock the ship as the torpedo begins a chain reaction in the engine’s warp core. Unfortunately, the anti-matter containment field fell, and the subspace, positron emission again starts the Hypo-Temporal Drive. With a flash, the Simian Spaceship vanishes.]

    Mr Chimps



    I can not believe
    We have survived
    We actually lived,
    And haven’t died.

    What the hell?
    What’s with this rhyme?
    Cornelius, you dope,
    What’ve you done this time?!?!

    I'm sensing a new RotQM game here.

    RotQM6 - Rescue of the Quiet Maker
    pholkhero starts up a new SG but goes quiet on the forum. The rest of the group decide that the only way to bring him back is to play his AW, tech trading on SG and win.

    oh, you people are no fun ~

    no one wants to hear how Really? Okay . . . Thanks for the "Memories", the next RotQM [Really...Okay, Thanks for the (Quote/unquote) Memories") starts?? AW 3CC culture win?? c'mon ~

    yes, we won ~ or rather, you all won ~ don't we know that already. the save and replay will be there but i thought rather than a "moved units, conquered city, got a capitulation" report, this would be better ~

    Alrighty, Pholky needs a little encouragement, so let's give him that. Don't be so mean.

    I really enjoyed the story ... but is it gonna be 1 chapter every 12 days?
