hey seeing as this is turning into something i already know about... allow me to link to this site.
I don't do links!
btw if you don't wan't to read through the awsomeness. the situation deteriorated when the mod couldn't keep up with th struggle. in one day (probably 6 hours on a sunday(sunday because everyones on on saturday(everones on on saterday because there celebrating temporary freedom but on sunday there one day from being enslaved by work again))
anyway in 6 hours they managed to have an international incident and pretty much turn the breaking of the Tolan Empire into galactic civil war. of course they didn't have the war rules in place for such an event and when the game couldn't keep up with the diplomacy the game deteriorated into nothingness.
but we have one advantage..... WE ALREADY GOT WAR RULES!!!!
they came up with good shit!
