Ascent’s president of the galaxy election is in the books, and a player named Prolapser ran away with 77 percent of the popular vote. Developer Fluffy Kitten’s latest press release says that Prolapser’s first action was to “appoint Sithspit UNCA liaison and reassign the UNCA fleet to better defend key warp gates,” which apparently didn’t sit too well with some “de-centralist” senators.
What exactly is the UNCA? It’s “basically the united governments of the central planets and is largely autonomous to the players’ actions,” according to Fluffy Kitten. “However, with the appointment of a UNCA liaison they’ll be able to have regularly scheduled meetings with the UNCA to ask specific, detailed, questions and create news reports about the history of the game as well as current events. This unique method of storytelling will allow Ascent to produce regular news that will further the plot, history, and create many roleplay catalysts for the players.
