I am curious, X, what are you running from and what are you running to? If I were Nick, I'd be licking my chops in the prospect of more fresh meat. At least it won't be peace cow, had our fill I think.

Anything you care to add deus? Hello? You out there? Is this thing on? You've been rather quiet this week. Are you running away yourself? Where are you hoping to find refuge? I think you've been in most of the TO's at some point, which ones are left for you to cling to?

***CCR IMPERATOR ASSASSINATION ATTEMPT***

At the introduction to members of the press today of a new drone bomber by the CCR Imperator, shots rang out in what witnesses indicate to have been an assassination attempt.

There is no news as to the health and welfare of the Imperator nor has anything been released about the ongoing investigation.

More news as it becomes available.

GINN News Update!!!

Breaking News

CCR (or whatever Coloradoans are calling themselves)

It is with deep shock and sadness that the Denver Media Services are reporting the death of the Imperator. The attack earlier today by as yet unknown assailants seriously injured the Imperator and several members of her staff as well as doing minor damage to the drone she was preparing to unveil.

Multiple shots rang out just as she was beginning her press engagement. Rumors are rife regarding who might be responsible with speculation ranging from Clan loyalists to Glomshire Assassins. What can be said tonight is that Colorado is in a state of mourning. Defesive units are on high alert but offense and attack units have been stood down pending the formal establishment of a new government likely along the constitutional republic model.

In a press release today, members of the provisional government have arrested Mitchum Tate and turned him over to Glomshire for a War Crimes tribunal. Other members of the Imperator's inner circle may also be called to trial for the overthrow of the Confederacy and extensive loss of life and property over the last few weeks.

"...it is just sad," said one lady interviewed on the streets of Denver today, "So much death and destruction and displacement of human lives -- families. We need a government we can depend on..."

This weekend will be a time of mourning according the posts in Denver and surrounding areas, but the election Monday of a new government and a new constitutional convention will hopefully begin to restore credibility to Colorado's people and perhaps on the world stage.

In other news, Colorado has left STUDS and returned to Primal Scream for its treaty organization...

21 Attacks. About two thirds of the generals. Out of those at least one was doomed to failure, and one was illegal due to range restrictions...

It is not as big a drop off as I had expected, but after calculations, I predict that the number of relevant attacks will be quite low.

I am doing the calculations this week, and I am pretty busy at work as well, so expect delays in posting.

Thank you all once again for fighting the good fight?

A word of advice for anyone who is thinking about visiting Africa;
NEVER TAKE ETHIOPIAN AIRLINES!!! EVER!!! Worst airline I have ever been on. The two times I HAVE used Ethiopian, I missed all of my connecting flights, the printed out fake boarding passes for us to "calm us down", they sent us to God-Forsaken "hotels", and I STILL haven't gotten out of Africa yet! I was supposed to be home yesterday, BUT Ethiopian forgot to fuel up, and we had to make a pitstop, resulting in everybody on the plane missing their connecting flights, and delaying everybody for a full 24 hours! I am headed to the airport now to try and get back in the country. Wish me luck! :l

General Creatori.

You are correct, these results are rife with mistakes.

I have been trying to do the caluculations quickly between tasks at work, and the results are obvioulsy unacceptible.

I am going to announce that the next attack window will be skipped (to stop the current distress from compouning) and publish these results next week.

I'm on the ropes right now at work, and I need this calander space to get caught up again.

Sorry all for the unexpected delay, but I need to catch up, and I need the time to do it.

Take a week off. Get a tan. Drink Port wine.

Well, I was going to try and work on the combat results today but 'the Pages' is running slower than molasses in January, and I don't have that kind of time to waste. I'll try again tomorrow.

It was kind of disappointed to see some harsh comments come up in moderation...I mean one week down shouldn't be reason to go ballistic.

It was even more disappointing to see an important player quit, not only the group but 'the pages' entirely. It kind of screws with the continuity of the game.

In any event, we will soldier-on in the face of adversity. For those of you who are practicing patience, the DAS appreciates your efforts.

It was only one week...and 'the pages' was down most of Friday anyway.


I'm sure I speak for most of us when I say thank you for the effort you put in; this is a well-run, fun game. A week's hiatus due to the intrusion of real life is no problem, surely. It's given us all a chance to see some sunshine!

Breaking News

The Land Down Under Depopulated

No music lovers, Australia has not outlawed pop music. In fact there are now no laws at all. Sometime over the long weekend, the entire population of Australia and it's leader the persnickety and volatile General Electric simply disappeared. Speculation is rife in the rest of the world. Some have accused ASDREK of chemical/biological warfare, others think there might be an alien rationale for the disappearances, and still others think that there may have been a mass exodus completely out the the universe by the Australians. Regardless the real cause, there are no towns, cities, bodies or even any sign of intelligent life. CCR satellite images show empty land and virgin territory.

Things could get rather heated now that this strategic landmass might have become unexpectedly available, but those who enter it might want to research what exactly happened here in the sub-continental region...maybe the aliens could come back and take you as well...

Great Scott!

One turn.

5 players gone!

1 Player quit, and 4 players drawn, quartered, and eaten!

I can only conclude that despite the clarity of the text in the penultimate COMMAND BULLITEN, that many commanders simply did not read it.

I tried to be unambiguous... but ambiguity doesn't come in to it when it's not even read...

To those still on the map, I applaud your efforts.

To those who have been crying gloom and doom, well... yes. For all but one of you... that is whats coming for you.

But...

Look! The man to beat has disappeared into smoke and shadow!

And with him, his vast isolated bastion nation has vanished.

The scale of global power begins to swing, and the compass spins like a top.

The last light house slips from view and above, the night sky is suddenly pocked with strange and unknown constellations.

What course? What course!

Ruin for all!

Mr. TheWolfBrigade

The game ends 31 OCT 2013.

I'm sorry, but we are no longer taking on new players.

There are some open spaces, but a new player joining today, and positioning himself correctly, would be able to flow unchallenged into a large unoccupied section of the map, and grow quite powerful. At this late stage in the game, this would only further disrupt continuity.

I hope you will keep your eyes open in about a year, when we launch DA2.0!

Good luck on those other groups as well.

Not humility, care and effort. You must not over-smack, nor speed-smack. Smack must ferment and grow, until at last you roll upon the floor in the pain of laughter. That, that is when you post smack.

To that point, I would agree; but don't forget that I still laugh at the word "duty" (teeheehee).

Remember that fermentation is a delicate balance: Too soon and it is grape juice, too late and it is vinegar. My responses may have been juice; however, they were sadly in response to vinegar.

There may also be an implication that the audience is not prepared for fine wine. To that end, I propose not a challenge, but rather a clean slate. Seeing that the vinegar has been filtered out, I graciously hand the gauntlet to you to help refine this vintage for ALL Generals to imbibe from. Let us cleanse our palates and start the next course.

Attention all spectators: AW6 is your last opportunity to grab a spot on the map. Even if there are remaining white territories next turn, there will be NO new players permitted. This goes for re-spawns like General Ian too.

I am afraid that you have only two choices, General Re-spawn. You can either stick it out in your tiny corner of the planet, or you can delete your ORBAT and wait for DA2.0.

I will oblige your desire for annihilation immediately OR later on pending your decision.

BTW how is LOM and your Hunger Games CYOA going?
