The Dutchman's survival isn't a literary schtick, but an actual game occurence.

It is still talked about in our group how the middle boy snookered (as he puts it - not even sure if it is a real word...) me on this one.  I was sure his one admiral was DEAD.

My (and the other players) jaws were on the floor when he pulled this cat out of the bag...
... and I will show you fear in a handful of dust ...

Snookered is a real word, and comes from the game of snooker.  Google it and you'll see.
Glad to see more Nemesis updates :)

I thought it was your older girl that played the FSC.

She was the FSC, but the Chinese had troops on the colony so he knew what was going on and had a 'vested interest'. 

He told her how to pull it off.

I answered this question elsewhere, but thought others may be wondering the same thing.
I know I was at the time during the game.....

So the FSC decides to trust China again? Especially after what happened last time?
\

I will cover it in more depth in the overview, although I have toyed with the idea of holding off and doing a 2 month overview at the end of March 2205 as these two months are deeply tied to one another.

But trust is an awfully strong word here.
More of 'the devil you know vs the devil you don't.'

At the end of the month, they all knew that things were about to get bad.  The oldest girl (FSC) was out of ships, lost her only off world colony, had alien troops landing on the one conquered population that she held, and was tied down into projects that were going to need time to come to fruition.

The middle boy was the only player with the depth (both economically and militarily) that would be able to do much.  The Euro and US were getting stretched thin - too thin.  It would be all they could do to hold their own.  And the oldest girl knew it.

But the oldest girl had a few things that the middle boy was short on.  And he was willing to deal.

And so two powers that were technically at war became allies to avoid an even worse fate....

Ummm....

In the midst of the copy and pastes for post 31 of Feb, I seem to have cut off the end of the post. That took out the last big battle. Oops.

I will try to get it typed up here at work and editted in, but no guarantee. Bunches of sick babes tonight so it might have to wait

thanks for all your efforts its a wonderful campaign. I think people who are reading this campaign wish they were playing it.

Having said this I am not playing role playing games with a program call fantasy grounds II http://www.fantasygrounds.com

I wonder if it is at all possible to make a ruleset and play this remotely. I know the map, dice rolls, and tokens would be possible not sure about other things. Hmmm the possibilities

I managed to get the next post typed in (YES, March is started!).

But it hasn't been proofread and this computer has no spell check, so that will have to come later.

I don't think anyone will mind a few typos for the moment though...   ;)

As long as it gives us more to read about that campaign, typo away :)

Ok, this is taking more than I thought.   :oops:

March has worse hurdles than Feb as SO MUCH happens so close together.

I am not a writer by trade, and trying to get this to make sense to the reader is proving difficult.  I have re-written the first several parts of March a couple times, but they still end up confusing to date. 

One attempt just reset the clock on the parts, so one might start before another.   But then checking the times gets tricky for the reader and makes it hard to keep track or where you are/what is going on.

Another attempt followed a character for a duration, and then switched.  But again fitting in what was happening to who in reference to the other characters gets truly muddy.

So please bear with me on this month.  I generate a lot of text, but this time making it readable is going to take some time.

 :?  :roll:


EDIT

I also reserve the right to completely redo the first part.  Sorry.
