Attention anyone who likes wargames and/or strategy games, computer games, roleplaying games, or possibly some combination of the above.
A guy I know has created a one turn a week, all human players, space empire game for windows PCs.
It's a roleplaying game, since you choose who your leader character is and set the style and founding virtues of your empire, as well as conducting diplomacy with other empires via in-game email and also writing articles for FTL News, the in-game paper, read by your citizens. And theirs...
It's a civilisation game, as you build and nurture an empire, developing infrastructure and economy, managing taxation and production rates, as well as researching a bewildering array of technology.
It's a wargame, as you design your own warships, incorporating the best technology your empire has to offer, and send your fleets out to conquer new worlds, blockading systems, battling your enemies and assaulting planets with marine forces.
It's called Dominatus Lacuna Imperium. The main websiteThis page has the I Wanna button
I'm so hooked on this game. Many of you may have already heard me rant about it over the last year or so. The next run is starting late october/early november, taking players onto the start list now.
