Name seems familiar, but I'm not going to say in a good way. And Greater Prussia? That smells like Allanean...

I had to escape from the endless region invites from being in Lazarus, Allanea was the only person in my TG list over the past decade that was still active haha

Lazarus. There is no greater hive of villainy...except for all the other feeders and sinkers.

No vouching here.

Doujin was a big part of the super dreadnought surge. I bought a Doujin class. Can vouch for Doujin being good people.

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

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!
