It was not something that someone of her class usually had the opportunity to do. Still, she had to admit that ...

Too much has happened to list it neatly, but I've taken up cooking, apartment living, and I graduate next fall.

Re: Growing Galaxy

a suggestion to balance madace's idea for new players. Make it so that as long as a character is under noobie protection, that their costs for variable warp gates are 1/2 that of normal players. Should allow for them to go further into the frontier, and give them time to develop. So it's perfectly r...
