August 11, 2010: Sort Of Fabulous Network News UpdateAugustus: Turn 6!
Action Item: How To Grapple With A Problem!
- Commander Hcobb brought the bot to Grapple this past tick, where it became a HSF on HSF battle. The defenders of the planet apparently had a squadron of their own stealth fighters held in reserve in a hidden hangar, which helped take a serious toll on the attackers, but Hcobb's force held on for the win. Word is he intends to un-mothball the HSF factory for his own use, as we at SoFNN cannot but help notice the favorable market conditions for the unit.
Second Item: Function Over Form!
- The Black Knight won a mighty victory at Form, besting both the planetary defenses and the fleets of Commander Dendritch which had happened to attack at the same moment. The fourth cycle of combat saw a disastrous turn for Commander Dendritch, as both his XMC and XHC chose that instant to return to their constituent elements simultaneously. A few, hardy nozama fighters remained to claim the planet for the Black Knight, who, appropriately enough, won 6.0's across all the judges for his perfect, um, form.
Third Item: Deep Fried In The Deep South!
- The voracious forces of Arachnon Overlord Thrognor invaded Deep South, and brought their incinerators along for the cook-out. Approximately 2/3rds of the populace got to attend the barbecue and meet the arachnons, er, "personally".
