It is my sad duty to highlight yet another violation of the armistice. Sad

It would appear that this year, an unidentified vessel of Empty origin arrived at the planet of Knob, a friendly colony owned by the Plecos.

As the fledgeling community gathered by their huts, suspending large and vivid "Welcome Spacefaring Friends!" banners outside of their homes, the Empty spaceship dropped thousands of shock troops onto the planet surface.

Many innocent men, women, and fishy children were slaughtered in an incident that set back Plecos basket-weaving by hundreds of years.

Let us all wear black armbands for one lunar cycle, to mourn the unnecessary loss of yet more happy souls.

Meanwhile, the Empty will be BANNED for 6 years.
We suggest that they use this time to reflect upon the tragic results of their thoughtless actions.

Oh dear... It was just a santa maria Embarassed

Apologies to the Plecos for our unintended invasion. Embarassed

We thought the Santa Maria had colonise orders. On review of the previous turn we see that indeed we have accidentally pop dropped and will have endure our 6 year ban Sad The Santa Maria was split off from a fleet heading to one of our own worlds with auto-drop orders, and it seems we forgot to switch it's orders from drop to colonise... Embarassed

If it would make any difference we would return the world and pay some sort of reparations to the families.

Is the ban immediate or do we get a final opportunity to set orders?


It saddens us that such tragic accidents result in penalties when it appears to us that intentional setting of battle orders has not done so for others. Rolling Eyes

The ban is immediate.

There will be no negotiation...

If the Supreme Being will forgive us for butting in, we would like to remind our fellow peacenik spacefarers that the very fabric of the universe could self-destruct if we allow violence to spread! Confused Shocked Sad

Please, oh very please, everybody pay lots of attention to the terms of the Armistice, yes? Smile Very Happy Cool



So many Stars, so few Missiles!

In space no one can hear you scheme! Deal

May I request an explanation why I am recieving different treatment to all the previous Armistice violators?

1) Ancients got a reduced penalty because the harm done was minor.

2) Scandics were given no penalty, because...? All I know is they admitted to building armed ships for combat... There rest was all discussed behind closed doors.

So now I am the first race to get the maxiumum ascribed penalty. Sad For a clear accident, where I can easily reverse the damage done.

Sorry if this sounds hostile at all, it's really not intended that way. I knew the rules when I signed up for the game. I just wish that the rules had been imposed as literally for others also, so I wouldn't be able to feel let down by anyone other than myself.

The first incident was as a result of pure stupidity, and my benevolence was running at an all-time high.

The second incident was very confusing, and was resolved by an intergalactic court, by means of private e-mails.

Sadly, there has to come a time when the letter of the law is applied with no margin for leniency.

I will relax my iron fist slightly, so that The Empty may submit a turn before the ban kicks in.

But, lo! Be warned, fellow spacefarers!
From this point on, penalties will be applied without mercy...

Thanks.

The Empty high command regrets to inform you that the third incident can also only be ascribed to pure stupidity Silly hair

At least we now have lots of time to plot our next move, bwahahaha... ahem, I mean, organise a nice tea party for all involved. Very Happy
