Yep i wasnt that serious :).. It was something of a "nasty sounding joke"
because i was somewhat annoyed thou. And smartdrugs never hurt, only do
alot of good :).. I really did say "ask" because in that particular mail i
didnt explain it alot.

I want the players running the game as much as you do, but starting with
an empty world isnt the right solution here. We dont have to create
anything static or too far gone either. Take and empty world, fill it with
enough dynamic changeable stuff, and its prolly the best option to start
with, considering that we dont have all the resources in the world avail
for this project.
