I see you don't know the concept I've developed. Which is fair. While your idea is sound, I decided to stay true to my usual concept of The Watcher and The Creature, shown in the following AARs:
Under a Watchful Eye: https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/threads/under-a-watchful-eye-an-apocalypse-un-aar.1071193/

Thanks Peter. Glad you enjoyed my writing! As for the ability to hold myself back. It's a combination of lesser skill than you and how I always make stories in my head, so some slow expansion and plsying through setbacks just comes naturally.Hah, found the time to go on a reading spree in AARland.
This was a nice one, Nikolai, but I am torn on what impressed me the most: your writing, as ever delightful, or your ability to hold yourself back and actually suffer stagnation or decline for extended periods of time, when it would have been so easy for you to just continue expanding instead.
