I dunno how long it's been there but something new appeared in the prose section about the Ubuntu party. It's pretty cool.

Holy infodump, Battman. :eek2:

 
It's very well thought out, it's like an official information leaflet. It's cool to see the BP story being padded out.

BTW I'd read a draft of this dossier a few months ago... Didn't you originally post it in this forum, General?

Anyway, good stuff. :yes:

Consider that to be a condensed version of the awesomeness that is Battuta's brain, coupled with the discussions we had about the question "What is Ubuntu?" in internal.

Yes, he did. When I pointed it out to him, he moved it into internal reaaaaaly fast.

There are a couple of typos.
 
Materiel and founder. I believe they should be material and flounder respectively.

Neither one is a typo.

'Founder' means 'to sink'. 'Materiel' is a term for logistical supplies in war and commerce - basically, materiel = war material. It's derived from French.

Ahem. Quite a lot of information here. It'll be long to digest, but not painful at all :)
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

I really like how you guys have made this enormous background for the BP saga. Really gives it that... er... potential FS3 feeling.

I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta
