I must say this Galaxy is very quiet! Bored We all know there is a minor dispute going on in the south between the Evil or Very Mad Citadels and their Crazy ally the Phoenix Pilgrims against the courageous Fides Who me? I'm a saint and VisiGoths Angel .
No, the Phoenix will NOT rise again. Laughing

Can't believe this is the ONLY thing happening in this whole galaxy Question So what is happening in your part of the Galaxy Question Question Question

Conflicts to North, but none as big as fight between big strong alliances to South.

If North races are fighting, Bugs expect they would not want to say such in public, for fear of being attacked and having bad two front war.

Well, I guess if I am asking for news from the north, I should provide a bit more from the south-east.

Several years back the VisiGoths Angel charged into the orbit of the planet Murat and were surprised by the loss of our entire attack fleet. The Pilgrims had put up a very strong starbase plus their detonating minefields just kicked our butt! Crying or Very Sad

This defeat has about evened the sides down south. Previously the Citadels had lost a big fleet in an attack that the Fides managed to destroy. Laughing

Since this mutual defeat, the battles have been mainly back and forth with not much happening.
The Evil or Very Mad Citadels have been madly researching tech as have their Crazy ally, the Pilgrims.

Recently we have seen evidence of new technology from the Evil or Very Mad duo, Electrical 10 and Propulsion 12. Since the Citadels certainly have Construction 10 tech, we had expected to see BCs all over the place by now. Best guess Sherlock is that they have decided to go for BB hulls with W16. Crying or Very Sad

The Fides have taken a few Chyortoid planets that were way to close for comfort and minor action continues between the two. To the north, the Knights are very active with minefields against the Fides but no open attack by either race.

That pretty much sums up the situation. Nobody is building anything or just enough to stablize borders. Can't be long before someone gets that last tech, then look out. Shocked Shocked Shocked The era of WMD will be upon us. Yuck Yuck Yuck

Greetings one and all

How bizarre, a posting from our neighbour Alaugh of the Goffs that has some detail in it and not just goffle. Can he be high on a truth drug? To be fair a reasonable summary so credit where it is due. If there is real fighting any where other than the Fides/Goffs and Pilgrim/Citadel border then we have seen no evidence of it.

Bugs here.

Bugs HAVE been fighting, for over 25 years, with Rome. A few other races joined for a while, in order to slightly expand their own borders. Bugs have done most of the fighting against Rome.

Figting has been slow, and mainly at planets. Far enough North that other races may not have seen it.

What is happening? Well if you live on Murat quite a lot - rather too much in fact. A large fleet arrived equipped with heavy blaster cruisers. That proved to much for the heroic defenders and the survivors are left cowering in their caves. Clearly they had broken another of the Goff unwritten rules and deserved to die.

Yes, we had hoped to take out the Crazy Pilgrim Information Minister. Hopefully with the death of the last Pilgrim on the planet this past year, we will no longer be subjected to his rants and ravings.

Rumors, Rumors, Rumors in 2462!!!

The border areas of the Fide/VisiGoth alliance seems to be jumping with activity and Rumors.

To the south, hostilities have noticeably dropped in size and frequency with the Citadel/Pilgrim alliance.

To the north-west, the Knights are intensifying their open aggression upon the peaceful colonists of the Fide/VisiGoth alliance. Knight minefields are getting as thick as black flies in a Vermont summer.

To the north, the Bugs are continuing to move against Rome, taking many planets and inviting the Knights to the spoils. We color these two the same because they seem to be in alliance even if it has not been formally declared.

To the north-east, the once belligerent Chyortoids, are falling under the combined onslaught of Fide/VisiGoth Liberation Forces.

So many Rumors, so much happening, What is going on? Confused2

GNN Report on State of Galaxy Address by King Alaric

Greetings from Perseus, site of this impromptu News Conference from King Alaric. The King has decided to give this news conference to deal with a number of issues that have come up recently on the State of the Galaxy.
I am Geraldo Sherlock, your faithful, trustworthy, reporter of "all the news that will fit in the print".
I will ask the King those important questions we all want to know the answers.

Geraldo: What is going on with the Citadel/Pilgrim war and what about those rumors that a truce has been declared?

King Alaric: There is some truth to the rumors. We have come to a truce with the Citadel/Pilgrim alliance. We had met our objectives in the war and were not interested in attacking the brave Citadel/Pilgrim races any further.

Geraldo: WoW, you just gave up after all this time? Shocked Shocked Shocked

King Alaric: Yes, we have no interest in the destruction of other races, we just want to have secure borders.

Geraldo: Speaking of secure borders, what is going on with those insane Knights? The rumors say they have become very aggressive against the Fides and now against VisiGoth planets? How long can this be tolerated?

King Alaric: The situation is very grave and so we have been in consultation with our ally, the Fides. We have decided that an approach of asking the Knights to respect our space. This needs to be put into effect immediately. I therefore call upon the Knights to stop the invasion of Fide/VisiGoth territory with your mine layers, stop the exploding of mine fields within our territory, and to respect the rights of others in this galaxy. In other words we call on the Knights to abandon aggression and seek the path of peace for themselves and all races in this galaxy.
We also call on the Bugs to abandon your aggression against the peace loving Rome. Peace_bow Peace_bow Peace_bow

Geraldo: WoW, you heard it hear first, a major call for peaceful behavior for the Knights & Bugs.

Geraldo: I must ask how your call for peaceful behavior from the Knights & Bugs can be reconciled with the rumored attack by Fide/Visigoths against the Chyortoids?

King Alaric: Ah, you speak of two entirely different situations. The Knights have attacked us without provocation whereas we have finally attacked the Chyortoids after repeated attacks from their Evil or Very Mad rulers. The Fide/VisiGoth attacks seek to RESTORE peace in this part of the galaxy, not to create war. We do this in our own defense and the defense of millions of our citizens who were under the oppression of the Chyort boot.

Geraldo: Thank you, good King Alaric, for answering our questions today.

Geraldo Sherlock, GNN (Galactic Network News) Reporter

Bugs do not wonder why Geraldo keeps losing jobs and working for different new agencies. Reports are quite biased, and not true news.

Bug war with Romans had been going on for a LONG time. Bugs had taken all planets worth taking, and held Rome to 5 major planets. At this point Bugs stopped attacking these planets. Rome had been a valiant enemy, and did not deserve to be destroyed.

Now Goth ships are sighted at Roman planets. Romans are mustering forces and attacking. Goths are providing technology to Rome. So basically Goths stuck their appendages where they did not belong, and incited Rome to more war.

If Romans will not stay to their own worlds, Bugs will be forced to destroy them. All because of Goth interference.

Bugs will also note that Knights are doing nothing more than putting minefields around and near their OWN planets. If Fides and Goths would stay away, then Fide and Goth ships would not be destroyed. Note further that Fides and Goths can be seen to be mustering large fleets on the Knights border. The Knights are not the aggressor here.

Bugs will also note that Fides have the largest population base of any race, numbering over 11 million, more than 10% larger than any other race. As most races will have similar production ratios, this clearly puts the Fides into first place. The muscle behind the mouth.

Greetings from the Fides. Smile

We have never tried to do anything with the Knights except get safe passage between our worlds. Once or twice a minelayer of the Knights moved in too close to our worlds, Shocked well on our side of any line halfway between our worlds. When that happened we targeted the minelayer. Evil or Very Mad However, many many of our ships have been destroyed by the Knights. Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad They come into our areas and blow us up. Shocked Shocked Shocked Safe passage is all we desired. Our poor colonists can never know when a terrorist bombing will occur. Sad So, we had to trim minefields so that we might get through. But the Fides must admit that we are not as experienced as the Knights. Sad Sad They know our every move and have been very successful in laying minefields where we thought we would be safe. Our enemies, the Chyortoids, were our concern, not the Knights. Safe passage was not too much to ask. They act as aggressors without provocation. Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad When we tried to speak to them they shun our attempts. Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad We were targeting Chyort fleets in the year 2433 and asked for neutrality from the Knights. Since that time they have not been neutral. That is over thirty years of harassment from them. We still would just want what every peace loving hard working people want. To go about our own business without random harm from a terrorist homicide bombers. Peace and hard work to all of the races of the galaxy. Razz Razz

have a fide day.

Big surprise that someone does not want to give free passage to the team that has been successful in every campaign. What reason do the Knights have to trust Fides or Goths?

Quote:

However, many many of our ships have been destroyed by the Knights


Hint: If you do not move into SD minefields, your ships will not get killed..

Quote:

So despite losing colonists to minefields, Fides are still in the lead on pop by over 10%? Impressive.

Quote:

So the stronest team decides to pick on a small player, and gets upset when another player aids defense of the small player? Bugs do not feel sorry for Fides and Goths.

Bugs find it hard to feel pity for biggest player and team.

The Romans have every right to remove the Bug infestation from their part of this galaxy. The VisiGoths support Rome in this noble effort to reclaim their stolen territory. What other races have suffered so much at the hands of the Bugs? The Bugs must be destroyed because they dare to defend their territory?

A large number of these defensive minefields are clearly within Fide/VisiGoth territory. They are everywhere near our planets, between our planets, and around our planets. The only way to stay out of the minefields is to never leave one's planet.

The Fides/VisiGoths are only bringing in minesweepers to deal with the large number of these fields. We have no large fleets capable of destroying or capturing planets on the Knight/Bug borders.

And how did you come up with this outrageous number? I suspect that you had the assistance of the Knights and their 97% cloaked galleons with 2 dolphin pen scanners. These spies are all over the galaxy spying on each race. Now we get into the old question of who is in first place. The Fides have authorized me to say that they are willing to have their files submitted to an outside independent observer who can confirm that the Fides are NOT #1. The VisiGoths are also willing to do the same.

2) Are Knight the only race to have cloaked galleons? or the only race to get caught with them?

And now come the 3 Horsemen of the Apocolypse!!!
Knights, Bugs,and O's are gearing up to do their foul deeds.

Rome, an early target, is now being attacked unmercifully because they DARED to defend their territory from the Evil or Very Mad trio. All the questions about who was in the leed can now be truthfully answered by any who care to look at the facts in the Stars. They grow so large and powerful that even the Evil or Very Mad ones don't bother to hide their true intentions at this point.

I call on the few remaining races in this galaxy to Unite in Defense against the foul, cursed, Evil or Very Mad ones. You may have been deceived in the past by their twisted logic but surely you can see the truth at this point, even if you are Blind! Shocked Shocked Shocked

The VisiGoths stand firm and willing to provide assistance to any and all who would join in defense. Time is running out, just ask Rome. Nod Nod Nod

Tick, Tick, Tick, the clock counts down the time until massive attacks are launched on the remaining peaceful races.

Goths seem mis-educated as well as mis-informed. The reference is apparently to a well know religious book from another universe, called the Bible. And the 4 Horsemen showed up in a team game called Brothers In War 4 (BIW4), which that team won. While two of the four races in this universe share some of the Hive Mind of those races, the races in this universe bear no resemblance to the 4 Horsemen.

Quote:

and O's


Do you reference the {}{}{}{ race?

Quote:

Rome, an early target, is now being attacked unmercifully because...


...another race has stirred them out of their peaceful place, provided them with Weapons technology, and Weapon 16 Battleships.

The Goths have ruthlessly used Rome as a pawn to stir up a Hornets Nest.

Rome was restricted to a specific area, and no further attacks were happening in this area until the Goths interfered.

Quote:

to defend their territory from the trio.


Bugs will note, and Rome could confirm, that Knights have never attacked a Rome planet. And {}{}{}{ attacked many fewer planets than Bugs. Chyortoids took a few, but most planets taken were by the Bugs.

Bug's one regret: Rumor is that the Hive Mind of Rome was away in another very complicated universe, and that said Hive Mind paid very little attention to this universe. Some current activity from Rome has been said to be occurring because the Hive Mind of Rome has recently completed a masterful campaign in that other universe, and is no longer occupied there. Rome has been a very honorable opponent, and not given up even with very low odds of success.

Point of interest: Bugs were in LAST place when they attacked Rome. Bugs were in LAST place for the about first third of the game.

Quote:

...can now be truthfully answered by any who care to look at the facts...



Goths being truthful? Facts? What truth and facts have Goths brought here? Bugs would laugh except that other races tend to get sickly at the sight and sound of it.

Quote:

don't bother to hide their true intentions at this point.


Bugs did not speak of war with Rome for good reason. Many other aggressive races were abroad, and a race at war can be a juicy target. Once Bugs were in a better defensive position, Bugs were able to be open about activity.

Quote:

Hmm. Remaining? Bugs note that ALL races that started in this Galaxy are still here. However, many may be too busy to help the Fide/Goth alliance. Maybe the Fides and Goths should stop attacking the innocent Chyortoids and ask for their help.

Quote:

Bugs hope that King Alaric does not count himself among the peaceful races. Goth have warred against the Pilgrims and Citadel. Goths are attacking the Chyortoids. And Goths have Weapons 16 battleships to give to another race. These are not signs of peaceful race.

The most Peaceful race is by far the Sivxa, who had never even built warships until recently when they were attacked. To Bug knowledge, Knights would be next, as they have never attacked
the planet of an opposing race.
