Life is good when you have no ethics. Or Christian ethics...

You had bad luck with the fungus and native life, but like Sisko said, the computer facs don't seem to have handled the mind worm blight well at all.

Are you going to try and go for Command Nexus? Your bases have other stuff to think about, like you said, but the CN just seems to fit your, ehm, ruthless style.

Yeah, I know abundant native life is sometimes a pain. But, for some reason this game the native threat is insane.

For every one I destroy, two more pop from the fungus.

That may be what is hurting everybody else.

Fortunately, I cope a bit better.

Command Nexus is being built now at New Jerusalem. I probably have enough cash in a turn or two to rush it :evil:

I am also rethinking my unit designs. I need more empath units. I also need some chemical weapons. Nukes would be REALLY NICE!!!! :D

Haha poor Oblivion, doing the best out of everybody then rolled over by Antimind. :| Yeah he really does well if he can expand, but a tiny map with lots of fungus hurts him bad.

Also yeah... my name is Kilkakon, not Kilkalon. XD

Well, my offensive is officially shattered!

A bunch of wild mindworms just came out of nowhere and ate a lot of my rovers and infantry!

Now, I guess I really do have an excuse to solidify the empire and build more troops..

New Jerusalem in the year of our Lord 2194

Sister Miriam speaks at a gala at the First Conclave Church and Convention Center in downtown New Jerusalem.

Quote

What a beautiful, heartwarming rendition of "Amazing Grace" by the Men's Choir group from the Nerve Stapled choir from Red Revolution! Can we give another amen for these men!

When I was just an intern working on my second doctorate at Georgia State University for psychology, I had a short stint at a mental hospital outside of Atlanta. There was a patient I had who was deeply disturbed. She had a long history of drugs, prostitution, and general godless behavior. But, I began to think, what made her different than me? I could have been the same in different circumstances. Had I not studied and prayed to the Lord, I would have not gotten my Masters of Divinity from Oral Roberts in Texas from much earlier in life.

But, then I thought back to a sermon in Bible study all those years back in a little wee country time back on Earth called Huntsville, Alabama. there was not much there except for a few small churches and of course a space center that I think contributed to my future interest in space.

In this study group, we talked about the armor and weapons of God. Now, back in the 1980s, we did not know the secrets of the human mind the way we do today. We did not have neural imagers we have today to where we can actually SEE the electrical impulses light up and each thought turning from chemicals into electrical impulses to actions.

(turns to a group of white clad figures)

I envy you students at the Religious Truth and Love Corrective Institute. You are learning the art of Psychology and Biblical truth in truly prophetic times!

Anyways, the armor and weapons of God were more metaphysical. Of course, now we know these are actual scientific fact. The armor was "Faith". Faith allowed you to overcome hardships and demonic influences through life. Now, the atheists and other misguided individuals or perhaps those with ulterior motives to mislead you will claim the armor of god to be a "myth". However, as I studied at college and later as I pray and research with Christian scientists on this planet, the metaphysical IS real. As you build up habit, the mind God gave us builds more neurons out of chemicals to form stronger and stronger associations. Today we know can actually see all these associations and map them to language and action. This means, the armor of God, that is that we can become immune to demonic influences to live a wholesome and full life!

How I wished I could have helped that young lady in the hospital... but all my instructors knew about was drugs. I prayed, but the Lord had other plans for me. Like david, he wanted me to join the Unity project as your friend, confidant, and shepherd. But, he did not forget for God never forgets. Today, I could give the armor of God to you if you have a medical condition! For I now see the power of prayer. These lovely men from Red Revolution who just sang for you demonstrate this miracle from God!

The weapon of God was, in that small Bible study in Huntsville, also metaphorical. It was the words you use when confronted by evil. The protaganist in the classic book Pilgrim's Progress invoked the name of the Lord to foil the Prince of darkness, Satan. While on Earth, we were beginning to realize that words could cause chemical changes in the brain, we could not actually determine what changes were occurring in detail. We also did not know why the name of Jesus did silence some mentally unhealthy behavior but not others. But now we know that it is the associations and the neural encoding! Yes, the armor is also the weapon! And, like a good mood or the dandelions  in the fields I played in as a little girl spread!

But, not all weapons are words. There are times for the ancient sword as well as impact weapons.

So, it is not without further ado I reveal my reason for appearance and a powerful gift from the Lord: The Command Nexus!

You will have the moral fibre form the Lord, and be armed with the weapons that has been given to you as a blessing. You will go forth against those who oppose truth.

But remember, evil is a spiritual chemical construct in the minds of our enemies. It is not the body of the enemy that is evil. But, with some, unfortunately like in the Old testament, the only wage of sin is Death. For our salvation, and that of your children, we must give death to them so that the poison does not spread and rust the Armor and Weapons of God. For, just like the dandelion in the field of my youth, briars and poison ivy spread, too.

That lady in the ward I heard died. She ended up rocking back and forth uncontrollably covered in her own feces and urine. More an animal than human. It is inhumane to keep these wrenched creatures alive, particularly if they are not isolated infect our mental health by giving us bad brain chemistry.

Eternal Life, like Jesus promised is here. But, salvation is up to us. We should save who we can. Those who would stop us we shall destroy with the armor and weapons of the Lord.

God Bless you and go with the Lord. You are in my prayers

In an act of generosity, Miriam issues an executive order that will allow pictures for one of the members of the Red Revolution Nerve Stapled Drones Choir to send pictures to agents of the Crimson Comrades without revealing where the Comrade's base is.

Below is the picture that appeared in Pravda, the Comrade holoreel. feed and on every tablet in Crimson territory...

Miriam really hates the Crimson Comrades it seems  ;lol

Thing is, for such a hard location/map the Comrade's are still holding out despite all that, so the faction has proven its not weak.

In a larger map, standard size perhaps or bigger, they'd be a real threat as AI. I played a round with them as AI and they were just capping projects left right and center. That extra support means less minerals consumed by the military, and more to be used for other things.

Yeah, I am beginning to question my logic behind a smaller map.

For AAR5, I will switch back to larger maps. Not sure yet what the theme for AAR5 will be. I am kind of leaning for something brutal like Morgan on an arid, fungus covered wasteland and 6 alien factions!

Yeah I just realised--this map size is heaven for AntiMind! Lots of fungus, short distance between food... yeah. XD

And no problem. :) It's been a great read still!

Mhm. A little bit of theocratic rampage is always a bit entertaining.

When I get my custom factions finished up, perhaps I will do an AAR of them.
