    Many thanks for setting this up EPW.

    Got the save from NB. Hope it is Ok to hold it for the night. I need to review some of the game concepts, etc.

    In the meantime - my merchants have headed out in different directions ....

    Damn! Very smart of you Beta - I'm thinking your tactic is better than mine was...which was "jumping into it blindly and figuring it all out as I go along"...but then again, I figure the overall mystery is half the fun. I am a firm believer in "ignorance is bliss."

    ...and no, I still have not gone over the actual concepts of this game.

    I don't know why he saved my life. Maybe in those last moments he loved life more than he ever had before. Not just his life - anybody's life, my life. All he'd wanted were the same answers the rest of us want. Where did I come from? Where am I going? How long have I got? All I could do was sit there and watch him die.

    Probably true.

    But the concepts are interesting.

    Thanks for your patience folks. First turn played and on its way via caravan to Tamerlane (Nugog).

    Onto you EPW.

    I am now using the ingame mailer for this - so you may get a "warning" with the email - just an FYI.
