    Is this dead? It's a shame if it is, it was quite good.

    Hey guys! Life is totally amazingly nuts. Three transcontinental moves, an MA, starting a career, it's been a bizzare time that hasn't left me a lot of energy to write.

    I loved writing this timeline and I still love daydreaming about tales from Objectivist Katanga.

    What I might do in the next month or so is write up a timeline about how things would have gone and turned out for Katanga. I wish I could give this project more time and energy- hell, I might still- but at the very least, all the fans, who have been SO awesome and encouraging when I actually was writing- deserve to know how it all turns out.

    May we still discuss the glory that is Objectivist Katanga setting, Mr Linkwerk? I wanted your approval before starting a discussion on music in your setting or anything else.

    I think this is one of the most unique things I've ever read:

    Good ol' Rand attempting to create the freest country on Earth, only to create the most brutal regimes of the 1960s. Patrice Lumumba and Che Guevara joining forces. French, Belgian, and South African mercenaries. I'm sorry if you might not be able to finish it, but what you have written is a treat unto itself.

    I would like to know who takes control of Congo after 1966?
