Hello all. Videogame criticism and theory website Insomnia, that recently began publishing, in several parts, the longest and most detailed analysis of PA yet (Videogame Art: Planetary Annihilation), is about to begin hosting a persistent PA universe called Cosmic War. It is a universe featuring rules and lore designed by Alex Kierkegaard aka icycalm, and will soon have its own space on the web at the following address: http://cosmicwar.pa (coming soon) Everything about this universe will be explained on that new site, but I will give you a quick summary of the main ideas that power it (the theoretical underpinnings of which will be explored in detail in upcoming parts of AK's review of PA). Cosmic War is made up of many Galactic Wars, which are themselves made up of many regular PA system wars (like the ones you play every day). The Galactic Wars are played according to these rules: And the overall Cosmic War is played according to these rules: tl,dr: The Cult is dividing itself into the official PA factions, and starting Galactic War #1 within the next few days. The results of this first Galactic War will feed into the Cosmic War, and we'll keep expanding our internal factions in both size and number and playing the war between us indefinitely. If other clans want to join, they can do so starting with Galactic War #2, and we'll work them into the grand plot of the universe as we go. If all the above text sounds too complicated for you, just wait until our new site and streams and videos go up, and you'll see how simple it is in practice. We look forward to developing and hosting this very promising game mode, and to having many of you observing it and, hopefully, participating in it.
