    So how does /tg/ feel about a game of Master of Orion 2? First off, let's create our race. What you need to do is suggest traits you want to have and I'll do my best to put it together.

    Or we could play one of the standard races, but where's the fun in that.

    Pic related, it's our choices.

    Exploring our nearby systems yield somewhat favorable results. A decent, if irradiated planet with gold deposits and a huge arid ultra rich world in one system. The problem, as you can see is that there is a fucking eel guarding the system, making it off limits for now.

    The other systems within reach are utter shit. Until we get either better drives or enough military vessels to take care of the bothersome eel, we're probably better off holding on to the colony ship for now.

    Only three more systems we can reach without going to war. We are boxed in between the relatively small Alkari and the giant Klackons. Now might be a good time to start gearing up for war.

    Okay. My thoughts are this.

    The Klackons are larger, and just as much a industrious people as us. This means a war with them is going to be long and painful, if we can win at all. The Alkarians are smaller, and aren't as much a powerhouse. So between the two, I say lets go to war with the Alkarians.

    But first we need to build a fleet and get ourselves ready for war. Begin building a fleet, and once we have a sizable one, lets go and take out that eel at Zaniah. This will give us a industrial planet to pump out ships, as well as some practice.

    The Klackons quickly establish a colony in the Finn system, which is actually fortunate for us, since we now have a connection with their empire. The main problem is that we no longer have a way to reach Corsuscant, which is well and truly fucked if the Klackons decide to attack.

    It does indeed allow for this. Our main problem right now, however, is the lack of a forward outpost. We can no longer reach the Klackon worlds. Colonies not participating in the war effort have been instructed to build Outpost ships so we can establish forward bases.

    Also, we can now reach Coruscant, which is closest to the Klackons.

    once you've installed, copy Dplay.dll or whatever from cd folder to your game folder

    in order to get to play with graphics not fucking up, make a .txt file called MoO2 (or whatever), write this in it:

    cd C:\"Program Files"\Microprose\Orion2

    The Psilons and the Klackons are now at war. Assuming the Psilons can put up even a little resistance and not just surrender instantly, this could give us a bit of a break.

    The Klackons launch another strike against Armok, this time with a Battleship and a Frigate. Considering we still have a Commodore and another recently built Axebeard, I'm confident we can take them down. And considering how long it takes to build a Battleship, it should be a significant blow against their fleet.

    It's almost too easy. The initial volley of missiles and interceptors cripple the battleship, and our ships prove evasive enough to avoid the clumsy Klackon beam weapons. I estimate that a Commodore would be equal to a Klackon Titan as things stand right now.

    Just as it look the FUKKEN DORFS! might pull through, this happens. I can't see anything but a grim ending for our empire.

    At least we can take slight comfort in knowing the spawn heads directly for the Coruscant system occupied by the hateful Klackons.

    The Klackons send more fleets toward Armok, hoping to beat us while we're still recuperating. Then this happens. Let's just hope it won't be attacking us.

    Guess what? It is. Squatmur is doomed, Armok will be able to hold on for just a little while longer, and the people of Zaniah are slowly starving to death due to eel blockade.

    This is it. In true Dorf Fort fashion the FUKKEN DORFS! all will die.

    The game knew /tg/.
    It knew that all of the Galaxy's planets would've been stripped bare to create our glorious monuments and fortress worlds.
    It knew that our Tantrum Spirals would have been unmatched.
    It knew that we had to be stopped.

    And that's pretty much it. The Klackons bomb the fuck out of Zaniah, sparing the dwarves there from death by starvation, Armok actually held out for far longer than expected, fending off Klackon attacks with its dwindling fleet, and Squatmur was left a burning ruin.

    This is from the final autosave. As you can see, the Alkari, who were at war with the Silicoids if memory serves me right, were doing even worse, probably because at this point we still have the only Tantrum Spiral class ship ever built.

    I also want to say thanks, /tg/. This was probably the greatest game of MoO2 I've ever had. Seriously, it couldn't have ended better. Or, well, I really would have loved to kill that fucking eel. All I needed was one more Urist!

    I'm not entirely convinced I could do this game justice. We were just lucky (if that's the word I'm looking for) to have every single thing that could go wrong go wrong at the exact same time. Even with the second eel and the Antarans, we would have still beaten the shit out of the Klackons if we hadn't lost Squatmur to the Alien Crystal. Any subsequent playthroughs would be far less epic.
