  1. It's nice to see someone commit to a thing for the entire game.
  2. Oh no. What have I done?
  3. This is like NP in a nutshell. I've never been in a situation where I had an opportunity to save another player and I really wanted to make that work. Of course, this was after I turned on Murdoc because he started cruising through my stars and I thought he was trying to gather intel to attack me. Then Deleric turned on me and I went crawling back to Murdoc (which was the reason the game took so long). I'm not sure how I made it as far as I did since I had such a horrible starting position. Obviously the AFK people helped, but that mostly benefited Murdoc. I would love to play another game with the dark galaxy option. I'm going to need a little break first though. Edit: Also, Congratulations Murdoc!
  4. Game One is finally over! I feel a tiny bit responsible for dragging the game out for so long, but it would have been over much sooner had everyone gone along with the plan(s) (including me). Also, this was the second time I've been assigned the name Jake Rodkin. I still have no idea how to RP that other than signing my messages Baboo and Bird Noise. Some sort of voice interaction would have made it a bit easier, I think.
  5. Choose Galaxy from the drop-down menu. In the Galaxy view, click on $E $I or $S to sort by the type. Clicking on the eye after the star's name will center the camera on that star.
  6. I spent a good 30 minutes clicking on everything trying to find the menu to rename ships. I'm so sad this is gone.
  7. Hell yeah, NP2! Let's do this!

    Whoa new forum software. Good game guys. I was in a really shitty starting spot with no real ally so there was no hope for me. I'm still cracking up at Jeff Gonegamegoldgame trying to get me to give him range for information about yellow's yet-to-happen attack, all while he was sending ships my way at the same time. I wish we could get another 12 player game going, maybe on that sweet spiral map.

    It's been too long since the last game, I totally forgot about the start too. Thanks for sponsoring the game, dibs!

    So the dream of another 12 player game is dead then, eh? Friday is fine for me. I'm East Coast NA.

    I'm in! I also have a bunch of galactic credits burning a hole in my pocket.
  12. I am totally alive! I was hibernating until either the next game of NP started or the podcast came back.
  13. Just hearing the brief guitar intro again makes me happy! This is pretty great, guys.

    I somehow managed to get away with not having any ships for a really long time. When I moved in on the orange and blue guys, I decided that I better take them completely out of the game. I used pretty much all of my ships doing that. There may have been a window where Murdoc could have made a move but by the time he let me through, I had built my fleet back up. The game certainly becomes more fun when there's backstabbing involved. I don't think I've felt the stress of worrying about someone turning on me in two or three games now. Without that stress, it just becomes a star capturing/space ship routing simulator. During those early games, I used to plan my lunch hour around the time we paid in game. I just don't get that excited about it anymore. :/
