The Inside Scoop: Leagues And Championships

Last month we hinted at a followup to our exclusive first interview with Joshua. Today, we can finally announce that the rumor is true: We’ve got solid answers on some of the most pressing questions of the day.


(Much like the first Inside Scoop, the following has been condensed from a lengthy email chain. Just imagine we’re all in a comfy studio with nice cups of tea and a plate of those shortbread cookies you can only get at this time of the year, hanging out and chilling. -Editor)

Planets Mag Revived: And They Have A Plan

We have a unified vision — well, mostly unified.

(I’m the handsome one. -T) (That makes me…the smart one? -G)

The Cylons have taken over the Planets Magazine. Thanks to their revolutionary Resurrection Ship technology, the venerable magazine has been brought back from the dead, and now… No, seriously: We may be back, but we’re not Cylons.
(Although…would we really know? -G) (Speak for yourself. -T)

The Inside Scoop: 3D and Levels

As our first project here at the revived Planets Magazine, we wanted to touch base with Joshua and get a look at some of the coming events we have to look forward to at Planets Nu. He’s agreed to let us see a little bit of what he’s got in mind for the coming months.

(The following has been condensed from a rather lengthy email chain. Just, you know, kinda imagine we’re in a comfy studio with nice cups of tea and a plate of cookies, chilling. -Editor)

The Planets.NU Commanders Map

Planets.Nu has a great and very active community. We all like to chat and discuss about our favorite game for hours. It’s fun to do it online and meet Commanders from all over Planet Earth, it is even more fun to do it face to face. I have done it in the past, small gatherings with 3-4 other Commanders who live nearby or having a beer with a Commander who find some time during a business trip to your city.
