I apologize for not saying anything in a while. I just can't think of anything worth contributing.

If the human reacts negatively to the ur-quans last response I may finally have something to say.

Right. Been away for a while, and am probably still going to be quite busy... but I hope this response may have livened things up a bit.
Edit: Though I'm starting to fear I just made things worse...

It seems as though no one wants to make the next move...

Life got in the way, sorry. I never feel like I have enough time to write anything worthwhile anymore.

It's fine. You should always put real life problems first.

Well I suppose no one could think of anything to do.

Well... it sort of got off to a weird start when we initially got no Old Alliance races whatsoever. I mean, later on we got the Yehat and the Earthlings, but in the beginning, we had the Druuge, Ur-Quan, Ilwrath and Utwig, none of which really have any particular drives towards each other. The Ilwrath are already battle thralls, and know not of either the Druuge or Utwig, so they weren't really able to participate in a relevant way. What had they to say? The Ur-Quan diverted away from the "subjugate everything" path, and so likewise rendered themselves irrelevant to the other participants back then, since there were no Old Alliance races around to hold grudges. Neither of the aforementioned two were interested in trading with the Druuge, and the Utwig, likewise, held no interest in such. Thereby, the Druuge were likewise a bit disconnected. The Utwig were equally irrelevant - they live too far away to be a notable party in more local events, and with no Alliance to negotiate with, there wasn't much in that vein either.

Later on, Earthlings and the Yehat would get involved, but by that point it was already too late. The precedent had been set, and without any external force to fabricate a common goal, negotiations just... fell apart. Perhaps there would be time to try again sometime, but I'm rather busy as it is, so I don't think I'd be able to participate in a meaningful way withing the foreseeable future.

Am I allowed to act on that publicly now?

Because then something might happen.......
