If you want, I could help with this history to fill in some blind spots on the rise and fall of -R-. Starting with the history of K43/42/52 GAM, ESQ, -R- and FEMA, followed by the merger, the war with FEMA and later DNY.
I stopped playing w12 though, so if you want some facts, just mail me here!
Funny to read how Athalie (misspelled) got sick of me. The 2 of us had just about the most honest heartfeld conversations, I have had in this game. At the time, I know she was sick, but can I really be held accountable for RL sickness? (no need for easy remarks, seriously)
That RIMJOB members were not more spread out on the map, is not really Oots. fault, eventhough the writing suggests that. Bob Dover was their biggest and closest thread at the time, simple as that. As they did not claim wartargets themselves, they were assigned to Bob. That is how a tribe works.. Sadly so, several of them were already impressed by a few SUKO incomings.. ;-)
If they would not have walked out on the war, I don't think that most of them would have been in Oots. much longer anyway, even in the middle of a war.
