    TC might have been one of the original Civs where patronage wasn't a requirement.

    Congratulations to PowerWizard for starting his lineage. I took the liberty of adding his material to the House of Baltar Seal with a few additions to my own corp.

    No house is more glorious than the King Henry V branch of the imberian family of wilpuri's household.

    That looks really good, but I have to admit you have to know those names to know which squiggle is who.

    ya, some are hard to read. It was better before I had to convert it to a jpeg format.

    Hehe, my forum has a very similar system to TWC, and we're just getting to the point where houses are big enough to have 'family tree' style jobbies.

    Does anyone know if tBP's tree has a recent version? I might make one if there isn't.

    You already have a large ship plus several minor ships. A whole part of the fleet.

    It's not well known but if Tokus Maximus wasn't such an ardent revolutionary who dismissed such things as 'patronage' but not sponsorship then The House of Baltar would now have power in the very highest corridors but the allure of a certain Wilpurian won out in the end.

    His original patron is tokus maximus, but he dismissed such things as 'patronage' so I patronized HL. Later a Hex called imb39 blackmailed HL that he will ban him, unless he accepted his patronage offer. *at least that's what I keep saying to myself*

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    The universe is change; our life is what our thoughts make it.


    The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts.


    If you desire to be good, begin by believing that you are wicked.


    We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.


    οὕτως ἀταλαίπωρος τοῖς πολλοῖς ἡ ζήτησις τῆς ἀληθείας, καὶ ἐπὶ τὰ ἑτοῖμα μᾶλλον τρέπονται.


    Questions are not necessarily there to be answered, but possibly there to inspire thinking.


    Nullius addictus iurare in verba magistri, - quo me cumque rapit tempestas, deferor hospes.


    If mind is common to us, then also the reason, whereby we are reasoning beings, is common. If this be so, then also the reason which enjoins what is to be done or left undone is common. If this be so, law also is common; if this be so, we are citizens; if this be so, we are partakers in one constitution; if this be so, the Universe is a kind of commonwealth.


    Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.


    There is no chaos in the world, only complexity.
    Knowledge of the complex is wisdom.
    From wisdom of the world comes wisdom of the self.
    Mastery of the self is mastery of the world. Loss of the self is the source of suffering.
    Suffering is a choice, and we can refuse it.
    It is in our power to create the world, or destroy it.


    Homo homini lupus est. Homo sacra res homini.


    When deeds speak, words are nothing.


    Human history is a litany of blood, shed over different ideals of rulership and afterlife


    Sol lucet omnibus.


    You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.


    Neither should a ship rely on one small anchor, nor should life rest on a single hope.


    The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.


    Ο Νούς νοεί τον εαυτόν του ως κράτιστος και η νόησή του είναι της νοήσεως νόησις.


    'Nothing is true, everything is permitted.' is merely an observation of the nature of reality. To say that nothing is true, is to realize that the foundations of society are fragile, and that we must be the shepherds of our own civilization. To say that everything is permitted, is to understand that we are the architects of our actions, and that we must live with their consequences, whether glorious or tragic.

    There was no blackmail involved. Ian showed me his secret collection of Sherlock Holmes photographs, the sight of Rathbone in a deerstalker made go all weak at the knees and when I came round he had already put me through the Ancient Wilpurian Blood Ritual, my fate was sealed for eternity.

    I'd forgotten all about this Harry :o)
    Relatives I never knew I had - heh!
    Tokus*Bombadil is "as well as ever" and "quite untroubled". A spry fellow, with a quick, playful wit. He has a jolly, carefree attitude, and very little seems to concern him.
