Well, you could load a Umerian particle gun with antimatter trivially, just reverse the polarity on the magnets, but what would be the point? Adding another 2mc2 of energy release on top of what you're already boosting the stuff to is kind of pointless.

I use antimatter warheads in my heavy anti-ship missiles, and as warship fuel.

"The 4th Earl of Hereford led the fight on the bridge, but he and his men were caught in the arrow fire. Then one of de Harclay's pikemen, concealed beneath the bridge, thrust upwards between the planks and skewered the Earl of Hereford through the anus, twisting the head of the iron pike into his intestines. His dying screams turned the advance into a panic."'

I just read it now. Had a lot to catch up on. They must have gotten lucky and encountered some weaker bio-forms who were busy doing other... things. :P Dedicated ESP Hunters never give up and are known to pursue their prey over extremely long distances. Even going as far as infiltrating other star nations.

I still have some catching up to do, but I hope to do some writing of my own soon.

Heh as fun as it would be to crash your little party, I'll pass. Attempting anything there would be too risky. But I'll probably have some infiltrators there, watching. Seeing what some of those ESPers are capable of will be interesting to us.

Well, if you want to have the Karlacks send an agent to Lochley Landing, we could concoct a story given some of my other plans. Though would the Karlacks be that aggressive outside Wild Space in an Anglian-controlled area?

Dielectrical difficulties. It's funny because "dielectric" is a real word...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dielectric

"A dielectric is an electrical insulator that may be polarized by an applied electric field. When a dielectric is placed in an electric field, electric charges do not flow through the material, as in a conductor, but only slightly shift from their average equilibrium positions causing dielectric polarization..."

No actually it makes sense that, among the many things they had to fix inside the Bragship, some of them were dielectrics...

That is the joke, that is why it is extra-funny. To me, anyway.

EDIT: I'm not planning anything at all for the Esper Tournament; that is other people's baby. I just put that note in Diplomatic Communications because I thought it would be funny...

And the CSB works to ensure the smooth functioning of the Tournament.

Shep, are you sure you want to infiltrate a place that is very important to my nation? The Centrality is very much paranoid when it comes to security, especially in a Core sector which happens to hold the first name of the Centralist Founder.
