Watcher News... <(o)>... The Big Eye is watching you!

The eye blinks and a territory map is saved for later viewing. Plus an initial survey of initial weasel progress has been taken and filed away for later use.

We see a variety of strategies in use and look forward to seeing how well they succeed. And kudos to the [******] for being speed weasel out of the gate. [this information censored until a later time.]

More news as it comes to our attention.

The Big Eye is on the move...

Our roving field reporters will soon be in your sector. You can also contact them to pass items on for use in future Watcher News transmissions.

Watcher News 2420...

<(o)> Greetings from the Big Eye.

2420 survey completed. Seeing an interesting array of approaches and states of progress.

Also seeing debris piles here and there about the galaxy, so it looks like some shooting is going on. We've also experienced a couple of exploding minefields first hand. (We just didn't get out of the way in time after being warned.)

I expect the next ten years to be interesting as well.

Watcher News 2430...

<(o)> Everyone say "cheese"!

<(*)> <flashbulb sound>

Thanks for the smiles folks. 2430 survey and map completed.

No little tidbits. Looks like everyone is having fun stripping pieces and planets and such from other races. And the change in leadership of the Hubrin has been addressed already by their people.

The Watcher expect to establish full Eye-net (tm) coverage over the IIb galaxy in the next few years. That should ease my workload for mapping -- unless the minefields get a bit happy and I need to replace net components. Crying or Very Sad

Since there wasn't a 2440 Watcher News the 2450 one is special!
[Watcher open small box with air holes punched in it, nothing comes out...]

[or did there...]
Meanzel collected,
fight on. Valiant strivers.
We want our homeworld!

Goblins creep
Through fiery red fields
Spreading mirth.

Lidless eye, restless.
Silent Watcher sits brooding.
What does he await?

Galactic voyage.
Minerals take wing, aslant.
To see and to kill.

Fifty-seven Fleets,
Unleashed, they travel the stars.
To regain what was lost.

Brownian motion.
Hell's task, defeat the foe.
Scatter their ashes.

Shadow games, redealt.
Dark cards oppose black birds.
Whistfully played out.

Fools these mortals be,
none can oppose Death, and live.
The reaper cometh!

Who the heck are they?
Tanuthandan name ties tongues.
See the big freighters!

For sale, various objects.
Technology here!

2450 survey completed as well. <(-)>

Hey,

Nice Poem-thingee... I liked it.

especially the line about

And I quote:

"Shadow games, redealt.
Dark cards oppose black birds.
Whistfully played out."

However, you mistake us for the living... that is something we try hard not to do... Laughing

Sorry about the lack of news reports but the Eye has been busy in other dimensions. Anyone seen a few hobbits with a ring about???

Watcher News <(o)>

Looks like things have currently boiled down to a nasty North-South alliance war.

Remains to be seen if this is going to be the status quo for the rest of the game or if there will be further realignments.

2490 survey completed in record time! Very Happy

I think having public scores helped with that. I note the Mortis and Goblins are neck-and-neck in standard Stars! score.
Shocked

However, keep in mind that under the modified scoring being used the Goblins resource lead would be more heavily discounted! Twisted Evil

I'll put out a list of modified scores every couple of turns from here to the end for helping people keep track.
