Hello Falcon 79,

Hello There Vong,

I'm running the pBem via e-mail. It only requires 5-20 minutes per day commitment, and I'm easy about weekends (if you want to take a two-day break, fine by me). I shall be starti ...

I've been sat here laughing just thinking about the 'loose blaster powerpack' scenario. It sounds just like one of those authentic, George Lucas 'slapstick' moments (Jar Jar stepping in Bantha poodoo, ...

An update on my pBem: one player may or may not be playing (he's battling with apathy, the poor soul), so I now have two players, plus a potential third for the second mission. The first mission comme ...

Hello There,

I don't think it has ever been revealed? I only know what you probably know, that they are genetic experiments. I fancy the idea they are deformed to some degree, more like beast than ...
