Jesus Christ, you people, it's been nearly a year, and there are people still bumping this thread? =O
I just got a PM from Firebender who managed to track me down through other forums. . . sorry for disappearing so suddenly back then, but basically, what happened was. . . well. . . I got bored
Other games and such took over my life, and combined with real life concerns. . . well, I left a lot of things hanging
My apologies. I'm a lazy bum.
On the other hand, I see something about a new expansion. . . so we'll see how it goes.
Also, just for the record: I would like to place this story under a Creative Commons license, which would allow those people who have made noises about publishing it and such the ability to do so (I can't be arsed, I had just enough fun writing it), but the problem is, it's not really mine. GalCiv II is not my game, not my setting: like I said up-thread, this is Brad's sandbox, and I'm just building a sand castle in it. But by all means, enjoy the story. . . it's not a perfect story, it might not even be a great story or a good one, but I had fun writing it.
And in the end, that's all that matters
