This most weird and strange Neptune's Pride game - which involved a peace pact and a frantic hunt for a galactic terrorist who was trying to wake a sleeping god - is now over. You can read all about it in an article called The Remnant where Electron Dance and Jonas Kyratzes created a trophy for the victor. Interviews with some of the empires also posted.
In the comments on Survivorship Bias, Electron Dance reader Todd has advertised a private Neptune's Pride game for any readers willing to join in. Players will start with Level 2 speed and scanning research is expensive.
The game URL is http://neptunespride.appspot.com/detail?game=32236516 and the secret word is ‘aspire’.
I can absolutely 100% cast-iron guarantee that I will not be taking part. As if that was in any doubt...
Update 09 Jan: Five out of nine slots taken!
Update 11 Jan: All slots filled and the game begins!
RoboCaptain, LiberalEurope, Captain Wells, CitiesInDust, Sargent Hatred, Leo2k5, Sirron, Grand Space Lord Al and Blueshift2k5... good hunting.
Update 14 Jan: There's a galactic peace treaty! With signatures!
