The Storm grows and lightning strikes twice!
This week has been eventful to say the least. The Radiation storm that has been brewing since the beginning of the campaign has stretched across all most the entire map and done significant damage to the warp lanes. It is impassable and looks like it is going to sweep right on through. Players that are on planets effected by the storm are starting to not only not get bonuses for holding the planet but in some cases are actually starting to lose points!!! You can't have a serious storm without some lightning and that came in the form of not one but two successful planet strikes against HARSADED and ADAMA. So this is the strongest position that the Imperial side has been in since the beginning of the Campaign. Another interesting note is the mysterious energy source that had been moving around on the Xeno side of the map collided with The Royal Falcon (TRF) and destroyed his army (not teleported them back to RYIIS, the Xeno Homeworld but destroyed them)!!! At first I thought it was a neat trick to allow TRF to change armies but Orbital101 has just come up with new rules for having primary army which you play on the map but that you can have multiple armies from either side and get points for playing them (allowing players more freedom to change it up if they need a break from one force or another). There is still lots of gaming to be had and I'm curious to see what is going to happen with the storm and how it is going to continue to effect the Locara system.
