Re: <t>Cold Wars 2020 Convention Report - COVID-19 Edition</t>

FWIW, I think this may be a reference to the local TV news reporter that evidently showed up, not me.

GalactiFi, sure did, damn! Yes, the Maritime Holy Warriors of the Czar are there in all their glory, dutifully sailing towards Tsushima (ahem).

WUT!!! You're not playing Age of Eagles. Oh the pain, the suffering, the humiliation, how can I go on when such travesties afflict me. Alas, adieu!

Re: <t>Further Reading: Winter Wars</t>
