March 29, 2012: SoFNN Update: Eye Spy Mega Underway!

Eye Spy, turn 5!

Bringing you the best of the best since we started feeling like it and you started paying attention! Also, for anyone wondering how cool it would be to play a PUB game with licenses costing a whopping 5x normal, join Inflation now!

Action Item: From The Moment I Saw You!
- Commander Helgrenze took out a Lady this past cycle, capturing the planet in a protracted battle which the nozama won handily. Ladykiller!

Second Item: Opportunity Knocked Once!

- Commander "The corps is mother, the core is father" Bester delivered a hard knock to Opportunity, which fell despite a spirited defense. Bester told us in a statement: "I regarded it as a target of Opportunity."

Third Item: "No Mr. Bond, I Expected You To Die!"

- Or so the planet Blofeld thought this past cycle, attacked as it was by Commander Asteriscus, but the able Orn attacker won the fight handily. In an offhand comment to the press, Asteriscus said: "Blofeld never saw the Specter of defeat in time."

And now, a word from our sponsor: Orcas Who Don't Eat Their Human Performing Partners- "It's a tough act to swallow!"
