Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Yeah, I recall one mission in Tie Fighter where you were supposed to help end a local civil war (or something similar):
Flagships from both sides are in a system for peace talks. You and your squadron are deployed as 'peacekeepers' while delegates from both sides send transports over from their big flagships to dock with a Imperial vessel for the talks.
Then you destroy the civil fighters and the Imperial transport zooms away with the delegates and their families on board, holding them hostage until both sides agree to stop fighting and accept Imperial rule over both of them.
I'm going to throw in my two cents here, since this is an issue close to the heart for me; I did LDR with my girlfriend for 3 years, plus a few years of off-and-on LDR (months at a time, not years).
As far as I know, I am the only person among my friends to have done this and survived. Bear in mind this was in my university years; if I had tried this in high school, I'm not sure it would have worked out. As it is, it barely did (but we're still together). It's really, really hard and if you're in grade nine I have to say the odds are against you that this is 'the one'. If you're sure you want to try, it's going to take a lot of work and sacrifice (and I'm not kidding about the sacrifice part. Everything short of your firstborn).
In my rare success, I think it had a lot to do with the fact that both of use are very introverted people, and so weren't unbearably upset about being apart. It sucked, but it was tolerable with enough distractions; I was a huge WoW nerd, and she was buried in science textbooks. If either of you are extroverts, it's going to be nigh impossible to live without that contact.
Good luck, it's a hard slog no matter what choice you make.
