Wow. March was a very long month and full of action! Empires of Blood is my first game and a very eventful first game it was. So where did I leave off last? Ahh yes. The OldWolf conflict.
Well it was not much of a conflict if any at that. I must say, OldWolf is the first and only player so far that has run over me like a bulldozer. Of course...he was more prepared than I was but that's no excuse. Right after the Ardill incident, I had made an alliance with the top player. I go to sleep and when I come back on....80% of my sectors are gone, my ship destroyed, my empire in ruins. Oh my.
Apparently Ardill attacked OldWolf the night before and Wolf began a hostile take over of the team starting with myself. I've had enough of Ardill's shennanigans so I left the team and went to my last 4 planets.
It took me 2 weeks to fully recover. Luckily for me, I'd stored almost the max in turns which I used up building my planets. Anywhere I found a sector with an upgrades port, I would build as many planets as possible and upgrade it as much as I could. Then I would colonize it to max capacity. Being in the same sector as an upgrades port I saved myself 2 turns per load. When I ran out of money I would log off and wait till the next day when I could collect from my planets.
As I am doing this the war is going on full force. I grab tidbits of it in the news. OldWolf and Ardill had fought each other to a standstill after much heavy sparring. Having exhausted his resources and having nobody to attack, Ardill began a shouting match in the shoutbox with Ace. The more I saw of Ardill the more stupid I felt for having signed on so fast with him.
Godfather is an Immense fount of information and he is very instrumental in me having picked up the pieces and stabilized my empire. He was a good friend to me. I now realized that he also had his uses for me, but that can be forgiven as he helped more than what he used me.
Shhhh...boss is coming. Our story will continue......
