Greetings, salutations, and thanks for all the fish... I mean, for the invitation!
It gets lonely running 'your own crappy little empire' as the diplomatic screen says, so I elected to join my current (and best) character TickTock Man to the fledgling Hegemony.
It looks like we're within shouting distance of third place, but still quite an underdog for the top two spots. But hey, where I live we have the Redskins, the Capitals, the Wizards, and the O's, so I feel right at home. And sometimes the underdog ends up having the biggest bite after all!
So how do you get to be a Senator around here, anyway?
