 The thread began in early July, and was originally conceived as a role-playing nation game, including such RPG elements as commerce, industry and rebellions. Evilprogidy and Aristocracy were asked by PaulieRomanov,​ the original poster, to moderate and calibrate the game, because he didn't have enough spare time to manage it himself. By popular agreement, the RPG factors were removed and replaced by diplomacy, random Mod events and dice-rolled battle results. The thread began in early July, and was originally conceived as a role-playing nation game, including such RPG elements as commerce, industry and rebellions.

-After two months of peaceful play, the Signature Wars began between Aristocracy and Evilprogidy. This involved one player saying something silly and the other replying with a witty statement. At its peak, Evilprogidy was quoting Aristocracy roughly every four minutes, and changed his signature numerous times. The War still continues.+After two months of peaceful play, the Signature Wars began between Aristocracy and Evilprogidy.
