Neptune's Pride (in Off-topic)
An interesting new gem I discovered today after reading a great article on Rock, Paper, Shotgun (CM me if you'd like, it has one swear word so I won't link to it here) and it's one of the few RTS games I'm genuinely interested in trying out.
Think of it as a space-strategy sim with a serious emphasis on diplomacy. It's best if you guys check out the site: http://np.ironhelmet.com
Perhaps we can all join a galaxy together?

Seems kind of sweet. I'd be interested in joining in if a few more CBers wanted to form an alliance. Can you pick where you start or is it random? Because it'd be a lot easier if people you knew started out next to you so you wouldn't clash right away.
It's random, sadly, but otherwise everyone would crowd the corners.
Just signed up, Im in the free galaxy waiting for more players, called Mythology surprisingly :P
someone come join up, want to try it out, not wait around :)

i joined a free game that was filling up so i'm currently playing. haven't really experienced anything yet, just made a few upgrades and starting sending my fleets out to nearby stars.
Is this nice enough we invade and take over?
does anyone want to play this right now, there is a room and we only need 2 more ppl.
My first game turning into a remarkably close run affair, im the bright blue one whos unfortunately stuck right in the bloody middle :)
Argh! Under attack, any advice from people who've played before, this is my first real battle / war. Yellow is incomming with about 3 fleets with about 40 ships. The only fleet I have in the area I'd moved out before he made his move, only like 7 ships.
I'm not sure I can help you out much, Myth, but a neat trick is to leave a planet with only 1 ship... it'll still take out a bunch of their ships with it. Also, make sure to pump science and weapons.
