    Are those sheep then necessarily (sheep) mages after they have have been turned into sheep by sheep sheep mages, however. That is the question.

    I have no idea what I'm talking about.

    I would ask you all to join my NES, but I don't want to get in the same fight Skillord got himself in.

    There fore, I ask you all to think about joining my NES. :p. Info in the signature.

    I posted something reasonable and constructive in this post, and I did not have to later edit it in order to make that seem the case. I'm really not bitter.

    Sure, but it rocks my boat.

    My rules are that if you don't care about something, you don't have to worry about it until I warn you about it. If you freaking hate armies, just don't do any until I drop hints that it might be a bit too small. That's how I ran Pencil-and-Paper NESes and that's how I run this one.

    Yeah, I stole Abaddon's, mixed in some Classical, and let all chow down. It's worked so far, although I will reset the rules come Update 20.

    EDIT: The main thing is that there are One-Player Cradles that are getting stagnated-they're having fun, but I'm having trouble coming up with unique challenges for them. What could be more challenging then having to face another player in a duel of influence? Also, the Fallen Sea cradle just lost both main players, and the entire thing is now deserted.

    I am curious, how do you run a PnP NES? (Heheheh, PnPnes)

    Edit: Don't judge me.

    I have a group of friends, we play DnD, and I'm basically borrowing their creativity for some off the wall world building.

    We have grid paper, some basic rules. They draw orders on the map and write secret orders inside envelopes. The entire thing is inside a folder.

    I update every day for a week, and now we're on a thrice a week schedule.

    One highlight: One person is searching everywhere for a cask of quicksilver to give to some wizards to that they can summon a pheonix for him. :p

    Some of us can still be shocked into submission by Luckymoose's ... 'tomfoolery'.

    Really? Had not seen that that had happened... must pay attention more closely in the future.

    Who takes their spots right now?
