Buried in my NS pictures folder is a picture of a Doujin-class.

*peers at the image properties*

April 13, 2004.

Man, that was a long, long time ago.


Here it is for nostalgia's sake:

One of the many color schemes tried, heh. All my NS photos on the PC are lost, and apparently photobucket doesn't keep the original metadata. I just spent like an hour looking for an archived copy of the thread with the first Doujin to be used in a military conflict (The UnAPS - Allanea war) after I found this

The Mk 1's superstructure was heavily damaged, being impacted by something like 20 missiles. Unfortunately, had some major turmoil in my life around '05 / '06 and disappeared, taking down an alliance I started (Organization of Maritime Powers) private website and forums and just disappearing. Thankfully, Jim stayed around a bit it looks like to try and keep control of the Doujin from getting out of hand.

Aw man...that's disappointing about all your pictures and your personal turmoil. :/ Hopefully everything's going better!

For the record I have no interest in participating in the N-Day event coming up in two days. I assume we can skip it?

I'm not going to say for certain, but so far? Yeah.

Factions must be joined, so you can indeed opt out.

Skipping is good for lazy, and I am of course lazy

I skip it like a stone in a hot frying pan playing hopscotch. Wait~
