jolly good show! Your List Needs You and all that, what?

well, i think jerry han is the head man on this. i think he's currently
revving up, and will soon start to produce orders, etc.

well, jerry han has the central point at:

but it's currently a placeholder. nyrath has the maps at:

and that's got some stuff. john atkinson has a list of unofficial powers
somewhere, right john? and i have a list of unofficial powers at:

which is somewhat comprehensive and complete. i'm still waiting on
addresses for some of these things. if people want to mosey on over and
verify that their details are included, complete and correct, that'd be
nice. if they want to send me a 100-word abstract of their nation,
be even better.

speaking of which, if rob "jurassic" paul has any info on his dreaded
space scots, it would be welcome.

jerry han should be working on it :-). i think the idea was to get
something, no matter how small, by random action, following which people
will be assigned to work on bits of it. i think the consensus for
organisation is that the encyclopedia will be divided into a section for
each nation, with each section having subsections for history, politics,
military organisation, etc.

you just did! right, mr crimmins, issue this man with one html editor,
privates for the use of, one style guide, one contact list ...

seriously, though, i think the work will start to appear soon.
if you want to have a crack at hunting down addresses for some of the
powers on my list which lack them, or even write some abstracts for
that would be fantastic (and would guarantee your place in gzg-l

heute die welt, etc,
