The Vast, as its name implies, is a large area of political intrigue and varied interests, with plenty of room for the imaginative and politically savvy. Located in what has included Mediterranean-like, Germanic, Slavic, Russo and other cultures.

No limits in tech, WA membership, types of play, or anything else. Anyone's welcome who wants to hang out and not be a nuisance - using my region as a base to raid from is a nuisance. Don't do it.

We're in it to have fun. Don't spam tg boxes or RMB with regional merge offers. It will be reported.

Rip out one of their spines with your bare hands, and the rest will play along to your tune.

I tend to favor wholesale obliteration myself. Or I attach a 'spook' to someone.

The temptation is real. Esp the further on we go with it. We shall see. Options may present themselves in unsuspecting ways we cannot foresee, neh? One simply hopes that things will get settled, that this is the 'right guy' in the end, for my daughter's happiness and all, that she in turn will also treat him well, as they both seem to be doing, and that this mom will not be ever forced to say or do things that might be considered 'unfriendly' or 'downright unpleasant' to anyone on account. Not that this mom is anything but a harmless fluffy little suburbanite vanilla sort, of course. Of cooooourse.


On other fronts, the vacation efforts continue. Departure date, this 7th, afternoon. Forecast thus far, sunny. Stress levels manageable for now. Money spent in getting everyone everything they need to go, too goram much, but hey. Probably once in a lifetime, this. Whole fam together - all of us, my parents, the sibs and their whole fams, all that. And on a boat. To Alaska. With Disney running the show. Yes my parents are insane for doing this for us, and we can't wait to see everyone.

Cats are at potential future son-in-laws being wubbed by a house full of cat-adorers. Dogs have a booking at ye local puppy hotel all together. Yard is gonna have to fend for itself, alas. House is not clean enough yet, but it is hoped we will manage before departure to my satisfaction. Am in shorts and a tank today working it over, breaking for newly-delivered hammock (because dammitall it is deserved after years of wanting), and checking online for an update on a potential wholesale offer on soaps that could end up in such lovely tourist-packed places as Disney World, Vegas, and Hawaii.

Y'all take good care of yourselves out there. May not be around, but you are in my thoughts believe it or not. *hugs all around*

Enjoy Alaska, it truly is once in a lifetime, especially with the whole family. These tings tend to get put aside and then lost. Trust me an eleven year old boy lost his dad to a cerebral hemorrhage and nine months later mom to cancer of the liver. Go now and enjoy each other while they are here, best wishes!!

That's what we get for holding so much control over our economies.


News from the regional founder!

THE VAST--Dread Lady Nathicana, founder of The Vast, said in a press conference in a hotel near her suburban retreat that her vacation went well and was most pleasant, but that said retreat had flooded due to an upstairs leak. She returned to a level three water damage condition and salvage crews are working around the clock to clean up. The damage is said to be severe, and cannot be estmated in dollar values at this time. The Dread Lady did say that she hoped all her friends in The Vast were doing well, that she passes on "much love," and that she will be back as soon as she can. ~FRTS Staff Reporter
