To build an empire, one must sometimes become that which one fears most. In the Ganlarev's case, this means "cuddly."
The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.
Satire? Me? Never!Some interesting stuff in that direction to be sure. Must exploit.
Definitely getting the impression there might be some satire in this AAR as well.
Well the Ganlarev don't really go in for the spiritualist thing, so "heresy" is a bit of an alien concept. The expression they would use would be "unbearable torture". But there may be a solution!Close? Did he say CLOSE? HERESY!
Cuddly! I like it!To build an empire, one must sometimes become that which one fears most. In the Ganlarev's case, this means "cuddly."
Thanks. A Blorg appearance is unlikely though as we are in a tiny galaxy. Not a lot of people around when all's said and done.Great AAR. I wonder if the Blorg will make an appearance...
Rest assured - the Ganlarev intend to spread their aroma into those parts sooner or later.But so many opportunities for colonisation still in that direction...
Naming ships is one of the fun things about this game, especially when writing an AAR. I'm a huge fan of Iain M Banks' Culture ship names, some of which are hilarious.I chuckled a tiny weeny bit when I read GCS Claustrophobia
That's the trouble with xenophiles. As long as you're a measly bunch of primitives they're all "Ooo we mustn't interference in their civilization in case we disturb their delicate balance". As soon as you want to do anything interesting like conquer the galaxy they're down on you like a megaton of asteroids.Touchy bunch, those Kalaxenans. Can't they just tend to their own affairs without interfering in the affairs of others, like any good species should?
That would certainly be considered a diplomatic insult at the very least. If the Ganlarev actually understood what it was, that is.All sounds very interesting. I wonder if the way one declares war on the Ganlarev is to send them some air freshner?
Perhaps that day will come - but not quite yet I'm afraid. Still, things are looking up, as is about to be revealed.It seems it's time to turn the tables - and make the Kalaxenans vassals.*nods*
It is only a suspected proxy war, of course. The Ganlarev are unfortunately still having to tread warily when it comes to antagonizing their scary neighbours.On the bright side: Now that the Ganlarev are at war with the Kalaxenans anyway, conquering and subjugating the Screk can't antagonize them anymore!
Yes, President Shushk seems strangely affected by these visitors. But what will it do for his ratings in the opinion polls?Well now, that is something of a turn-up for the books. But I did have to chuckle at a spiritual aroma. I do think this President is quite smitten.
