I'm working on establishing the main setting or settings of this dynasty/saved game, at the moment. Once they are established, that should allow me not to have to go back and change them later, and allow more time to develop the rest of the story well enough, I think, folks.

Once the foundation is sufficiently established, the rest of the tale should hopefully flow better here, most likely. And not only that, I can also use locked-down details from this tale in stories set in any relevant country or countries as well, for sure, don't you think?

That's all for now, I think, then. CD out.

Actually, it's the Slaabovian Republic League, remember? Thanks for your advice, EC. I hope to be able to lock down a lot of details for it and other related matters very soon. As for maps and all, I will no doubt need some help, just the same, with them.

I would estimate Slaabovia's total land territory to be about the size of Argentina, more or less, in terms of a possible real-world comparison, if I'm not too mistaken here. But with one main landmass and some smaller islands instead of being part of a single continental landmass like Argentina is, with South America. And also probably at least twice as populated as Argentina is likely to be come 2021. I'm figuring a population for Slaabovia of about 280-some million people in about a million square miles of land, I think, by 2021.

Also, a lot of my writing would probably be best classified as science fiction-type writing, to at least some degree, if not totally. I am trying to establish certain details about this nation, at least, at present, in this story, so that later on, if people need to recall a certain fact later on to better understand it, they can just do searches for certain terms and all, and refresh their memories as needed or desired.

Now if this were in a real country, all this exposition probably wouldn't need to be shown, of course. But seeing as Slaabovia doesn't and has never existed in the real world, I have to establish the milieu that the story's main events will take place in and all, don't you think?

By the way, you are a much better writer of reports than I am, I think. I can better visualize things from your leagues, based on how you have often fleshed things out here. Not to mention the fact that you've lived at least 30 more years than I have to date, so you have a lot more experiences in life than I have, and that many of the rest of us have had, no doubt. That unquestionably helps you with your telling of your stories here.

I find myself thankful that God has blessed you with a real talent for wordsmithing, among other things, my dear friend and brother in Christ, Eugene. Your talent is evident, and you have a kind and gentle heart, for sure. While you may have trouble with computers and making certain graphics, you surely know a great deal about things in this world, I'm sure. And God has blessed you also with wisdom and understanding of many people, as well, I think.

Until later, I'll close this. Shalom, which means peace, by the way, in Hebrew, among other things it means. Oh, before I forget, do you think you can perhaps include clippings related to Israel and other surrounding countries whenever you post to your NIRL-related league's dynasty forum, please, Eugene? I'd really appreciate it, in fact. I love Israel very much, as the Word says we should be in this world of ours and all, just so you know. CD out.

Thank you for the kind and gracious compliments... I'm glad that you and I are friends.

Sorry, I don't think Israel and the Middle East have much to do with the North Island Recreational League... that would be quite a stretch to include that in my dynasty.

Actually, I may stop including real life happenings in my NIRL... I think I am the only one interested in them... it takes a good bit of time to research them and to write them up and attempt to make them interesting.

I don't get much response to the NIRL

I probably will just cover the league and forget my life and real life in 1950.

No, please don't. I find your memories of the past quite interesting, as a matter of fact. I wonder if I would have fit in some ways better in that time period than the one we are in now, in truth. But God put each of us in certain time periods for purposes we may not yet know or fully understand, I think, Eugene.

He has preserved us for such a time as this, I believe, so that we are hopefully able to finally see our Lord's return to us, when He returns to the Mount of Olives, and all comes to pass as it must in this world of ours. Just as He placed Hadassah, AKA Esther, in Susa after Queen Vashti was removed from her position as Queen to Ahaseurus, so that deliverance would come to the Jews in the Persian Empire amidst great adversity. Mordecai even told Esther that perhaps she had been brought to her current high position for such a time as they were now in, remember?

I am quite enjoying the coverage to date of the NIRL. In fact, I would love to see you expand it, if possible. And for you to show more of the backstory, and all, not just to the league, but to your life as well, if you're comfortable enough with doing so. We youngsters don't often seem to recognize you need a good understanding of the past to avoid certain mistakes in the future, in my view.

So please, don't omit the off-field developments, both in real life and in the league's setting, et cetera. Okay? CD out.

Aphyne, for example, will end up with one of the players already introduced. Not saying who, but she will, in time, if I'm able to progress this dynasty far enough. And other women will appear as well in time. Just have to wait and see how things develop here for the story and Slaabovia, et cetera.

Just as many are doing with legendsports's story about Rufus and his family, for example. Very good writing in the related threads, not only from him, but also Tiger Fan and others, for sure. CD out.

Well, maybe in time, players from Israel might make it into your leagues if they haven't already. Think you could share your IPA Hall of Fame soon, and let us know how many players in it are from various countries so far? Just curious, you see. CD out.

My leagues are all set up to be almost all Americans... I suppose there are a few... very few from other countries... 99% are US.

I will post the IPA Hall of Fame for you on the Dynasty Forum in the IPA thread.

I'm glad you have an interest in the life and times of the 50's... so I will keep including it.

As far as continuing a backstory, I am not good at that... never have been able to get player personalities and conflicts in my dynasty leagues... I don't do dialogue very well... I'm just a pretty good sportswriter... I just give the facts and not much else... my dynasties are "stats dumps"... I just cover the league in generic terms and give a lot of statistics.

I also try to present my dynasty leagues well... with good writing, good presentation... and the absolute best graphics I can get as far as logos, jerseys and caps... I think good graphics are an important element in a good dynasty report... along with good storylines.

The really good dynasties, in my opinion, get involved in the player's and management's lives... and the really good ones have a good sense of humor, too.

Maybe in time, God will give you the ability to provide good backstories for your teams, whether in the IPA or the NIRL, better. But continue to do the best you can, with His leading, and I think you'll do just fine. No matter what you do in relation to your leagues and all, continue to do the best you can, Eugene.

I'll try to do better in terms of storytelling here, but I still have weaknesses, just as anyone who writes does, no doubt. I don't know how much is due to my AS, or how much because of other things, but I could stand to improve in various writing-related matters, I'm sure.

I'd like to see more about the leagues you've created in the past, like the State Line League, for example, but if you can't share more about any of your leagues or the histories of them, et cetera, then so be it. You are a good writer, and better than me in many areas of such activity, to be sure. Keep up the great work, and may God bless you and yours richly in the future, as I'm certain He's already done quite often in the past.

Your mother seems to be someone I think I would have liked to know, based on your descriptions of her in your NIRL reports. But she lived in a different time, no doubt, so I don't think we would have ever met in reality, seeing where you come from and where I have, in our country.

Take care, and God bless you always, as He wills, when He wills, I hope. CD out.

Note for future reference, folks. Once I get ALL my OOTP 18 files completely copied to my newest computer, roughly 5.5 million or so, those saved games/dynasties with stories attached to them in at least one form will no doubt have differences between how the related dynasties/saved games/stories turn out. Those files will take up about 146 GB of space, more or less, if memory serves me correctly enough here, by the way. If those points of divergence are important and/or significant enough in the applicable stories, I will certainly try to let you all know such things well enough ASAP.

I can tell you for a fact that there will be a point of divergence that will arise for this dynasty/saved game from this point forward, and related players, et cetera. So because that will be true, I will take that into account when I write about things that happen after the current scene is over. Please look for subject lines that include dimension and/or alternate Earth or timeline numbers related to such posts. I will also try to do the same for shown box scores or profiles, et cetera, of course, if and when I remember to do so easily enough and all.

It may take more than a day to copy all the necessary data from one computer to the other, however. I will finish the current scene, then once it's done, and all needed files have been copied, from that time on, there will be differences in league and world histories for at least this dynasty/saved game, if not others as well, folks. Please keep that in mind for future reference, if you can. Thank you. CD out.

I have finally begun a saved game/dynasty for OOTP 19. I'm starting from the beginning of things with it, with two leagues, one historical MLB league and one fictional league, for it. I am starting with the OOTP 19 default MLB teams, for one league, and am starting with the forerunner to the Slaabovian Republic League, the Slaabovian Baseball Confederation, for the other league. But I do not yet know if I'll be able to include the same players from this dynasty or any of my other dynasties in either league somehow. I don't think it likely, if at all possible, but we'll all have to see if I can do so well enough somehow, obviously enough.

We all will have to see what happens, of course, for this first OOTP 19 saved game/dynasty. I will probably add various leagues along the way to that new saved game/dynasty, but that will take at least some time, I'm sure, to do, in any case. I may also import the second version of this saved game/dynasty, at least, to OOTP 19, depending on how things go with this first OOTP 19 saved game. I haven't decided yet, though, whether or not to do that. That is all for now. CD out.
