<div class="IPBDescription">'Twas the map before Hera...</div> I've been working on converting the Night Before Christmas poem to NS <!--emo&:p--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/tounge.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='tounge.gif'><!--endemo--> . I've been told that it has been done before, but, well, I haven't seen anything else about it. Unfortunately, I never completed it, and, seeing how it is christmas already, I probably shouldn't delay any longer.

If anyone wants to, please continue this <!--emo&;)--><img src='http://www.unknownworlds.com/forums/html/emoticons/wink.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='wink.gif'><!--endemo--> .

<i>"Twas the map before Hera and the round just began,
And away to the nearest res node we ran.

The turrets were placed 'round the IPs with care,
in hopes that the Kharra soon would be there.

And I in my Comm Chair and squad 5 at vent,
had just set up phase gates and away they went!

When in my ears rang "Structure under attack",
But it could be saved, we could still get it back.

I moved to the structure as quick as I can,
And clicked on my Obs to give it a scan.

The room, now bathed in unearthly blue glow,
Gave the luster of midday to objects below.

When what on my shining blue HUD should appear,
But a fade killing my RT and a Gorge standing near!

A fade in 3 minutes, that's awfully quick.
To recover from this we'd have to do something slick.

I scanned round the map and selected my troops,
And divided them up into 4 little groups.

"Now squad 1, now squad 2, now squad 3 and 4..."</i>

Have a happy holidays to all, and
<u><b>Go Unknown Worlds Entertainment ?!!!</b></u>
