Speaking of Aphrodite Mae, where has she and Dixicrat gone to? I hope they are well. Thanks, vonRocko! I'm a cop now, and so I don't have much time for fun stuff. Suspicious; grim; stern; that's me, nowadays. I wouldn't be much fun to read, even if I had the time. As for my wife, AM has transcended...

About Our Gracious Queen, Aphrodite Mae

Gentlemen, I have news that is both wondrous, and rather sad. I'll get the sad part out of the way, first. For the foreseeable future, Our Gracious Queen will be unable to actively participate in our forums. Her participation here will be limited to responding to her private messages, and perhaps po...

Beyond the administrative duties of a TD, he is also providing excellent commentary in his "mini AARs". I would say, "well done, Longshanks!", but that just doesn'...
