July 2, 2014: SoFNN- Independence Day, Turn 13!

News, news, news, from the Sort of Fantastic Network News!!

With all the news that's fit to embellish, we are bringing you the best of the best and the worst of the worst, since we started feeling like it and you started paying attention! Independence Day is more underway than it was a few turns ago.

Independence Day Action Item: Sleepy Little Planet Falls!!

- Propofol was attacked by competing commanders, Nakor and Psych135 who dueled it out after taking down the planet's defenses. Nakor edged out a victory to take control of the 'Milk of Amnesia' main production world.

Independence Day Second Item: Battle Between Kira And Wolron Is Something Otherly!!

- The planet Otherly was seized by conqueress Kira in a blatant attack against Wolron this past cycle. Word is that he is planning reprisals: "Nobody pulls the woolron over my eyes!" the beleaguered commander was quoted as saying to reporters.

Independence Third Item: Son Of An Obichnik!!

- Shadowbane's forces have been lessened by Commander Wolron in a stout defense at Obichnik, making them sort of a shadowbane of their former selves. Look for hostilities to heat up in this quadrant of the Universe as capable commanders come to clash.

And now, a word from our sponsor: The Geometric Progression of Problems Society- "Double trouble. Then double again, and again...."

June 26, 2014: SoFNN Special Report- Independence Day: Turn 7!

News, news, news, from the Sort of Fantastic Network News!!

With all the news that's fit to embellish, we are bringing you the best of the best and the worst of the worst, since we started feeling like it and you started paying attention! Independence Day is underway

Independence Day Action Item: Starcharger Gets Lucky With A Lady!!

- The fortunate commander invaded Lady's Kiss this past cycle, and was rewarded with, er, a Lady's Kiss. Sounds like invading the right planet is its own reward, huh?

Independence Day Second Item: Challenged To A 'Dule'!

- It was a duel at dawn among dual competitors for Dule this past cycle. In the largest FP destroyed battle of Independence Day to date, Sentrion out-Duled Mbomber for possession of the planet.

Independence Third Item: In Tribute To Independence, All HW Still Are!!

- While not unusual in a battle among top commanders, it should be noted that no homeworlds have yet fallen to enemy attack. Whether, and for how long, that trend continues is a subject of interesting debate among galactic bookmakers (Editor's note: And not the type of 'bookmakers' in the best-sellers business.)

And now, a word from our sponsor: Depressed Dyslexic Physicists- "Still waiting to find the Dog-Particle."

May 10, 2014: SoFNN- Ultraquest, Turn 3!

News, news, news, from the Sort of Fantastic Network News!!

With all the news that's fit to embellish, we are bringing you the best of the best and the worst of the worst, since we started feeling like it and you started paying attention! Ultraquest is underway, and it's the very ultra in, er, questing. (Editor's note: In this competition, apparently, Lith is More.)

Ultraquest Action Item: Remarquing on Rue!!

- Dr_Sci makes sure that Rue de Remarque rues the day he arrived, capturing the planet easily.

Ultraquest Second Item: If Only There Were Fairy Bot-Mothers!

- Brian the Bravest plunders If Only, leaving behind only his trademark ectonianplasm. A spokesperson for the deposed government announced: "If Only we'd been better prepared..."

Ultraquest Third Item: Unhealthy Levels of Teratogens at Teratogen!!

- Trebor and his powerful, stealthy fleet assaulted Teratogen this past cycle, conquering the mutant-rich planet easily. Unfortunately for the planet, the defense failed because they didn't get any X Men, but rather had a lot of broken G Gnomes. (Editor's note: Okay, that was a real reach.)

And now, a word from our sponsor: Concerned Citizens Against Monks Selling Flowers- "You, and only you, can prevent florist friars!"

April 28, 2014: New Game Open!

Scientists at Acutron central have discovered several ancient artifacts hidden on worlds across the Ultraverse. So far there appears to be no commonality to the worlds they were found on, but the artifacts themselves are all strikingly similar. Markings on the relics suggest that, if joined together, the parts make up some kind of device... but for what? Knowledge? Power? Mass destruction? Unknown, but the buzz about the 'verse is that fleet commanders will soon be deployed to scour the Ultraverse in search of more of these artifacts...

Update: The new game "Ultraquest" is now open!



March 18, 2014: New Team Game

We've got a new team game open - just a few slots left open now. Join if you're feeling green!

Join Supergreen!

We'd like to offer messages of sincere admiration and/or condolence to all commanders in Ornery, depending on whichever is appropriate. We have compiled a list of the most entertaining homeworld names from this mega, and list them here for your amusement:
Taps Make Me Orny- Knightmare
Orn to be Wild- Elnoeleo
Orn Again- Andy
Phenomenorn- Skullsplinter
Ooooooooooorno- Doodah (as advised by Mr. Bill)

Congratulations also to Sentrion, who has been collecting race badges (Editor's note: "We don't need no steenking badges!") and finally has a complete set of silver.

This news message has been brought to you by the Shakespeare Fashion Design Company: "Once more into these breeches, dear friends!"
