New Players.

First of all fill in the start-up form. This will take you though the steps to create a nexus account and a ship, and even allow you to submit some orders for the next day. You can have a quick look at the Sign-up Walkthrough to familiarise yourself with the process.


Next familiarise yourself with the game. Introduction gives some some useful links to articles written for Intergalactic News. The library also gives a lot of information. Take some time to read the general forum to have an idea of what is happening at the moment and introduce yourself (IC and OOC if you want).


When you register as a new player, looking for affiliation is automatically enabled so you will see the recruitment forum and you can find an affiliation to suit you. You don't have to hurry to do this, have a chat with people and see who you like the sound of. If for some reason you don't like the affiliation you join you can leave and join another so its not the end of the world. If you don't like the look of any of the affiliations you can stay as Trainee player (TRN) but this limits your ships to a small though relatively safe region of space.


If you have a problem with your start up account not working properly, not receiving turns, or have any other problems then either send Mica a PM on the forum or write to kjc@kjcgames.co.uk with the statement Phoenix Startup Player Problem in the subject line.



Returning Players.

If you used to play BSE many years ago and want to have a go at this new version then first of all welcome back. If you have no assets in the game then register as a new player and go from there. If you think that you have assets remaining in the game or if there is a particular position that you want to resume then the best thing is to contact Mica to discuss it with him.



Duplicate IP.

If you have already created an account and then try to make a second one on the same IP address you will be prompted to indicate the reason for a second account. In the past people have created false accounts to gain access to more than one affiliation and so moderation of second accounts was introduced. There are many situations where a second account is genuine, such as relations or students living together, so please just be truthful in the start up form.

*** Message From The Editor ***

Kang understands it is traditional to send joyous messages of rebirth at this time of year, in some twisted human meatsack celebration of their most popular death cult religion. Kang has no time to wish any of you a ‘Happy Easter’, and instead would like to take a moment to talk about the religious nature of the superior Flagritz race.

Many meatsacks consider the Flagritz to be above such notions, but Kang finds his personal household Gods to bestow many happy happy blessings, particularly around the times of years when other meatsacks feel the need to knock at Kang’s door and offer celebrations.

Kang harbours a particular hatred for carol singers.

Perhaps one day Kang can introduce you to his Blessed Saint Meathook? Always popular on every Tear Out Those Entrails Thursdays. Or Kang’s personal favourite, the Holy Mary Mother Of My God How Big Is The Calibre On That Thing.

Remember, febrile sacks of meat, whatever your religious views, Kang is certain they are inferior to his own.

*** Message From The Editor ***

Greetings, festering meatsacks of the Peripheries, your beloved Overlord Kang has returned! And after some brief yet horribly violent cleansing of the offices, Editorial control has returned to the appropriate levels of brutality we all have come to expect.

Kang brings with him messages of LOVE and PEACE.

… wait. That doesn’t sound right.

Kang remembers little of what happened to him, just that he was on stage at the Golden Kangs, and then the lights went out, and Kang awoke with a black bag over his head.

Kang was then taken to some sort of debriefing room where Kang can vaguely remember needles and strange humanoid meatsacks in black suits. Fortunately for us all, one of these meatsacks was to make a critical error when leaning too close to ask Kang a question, and Kang was able to bite the top of his cranium off.

These human meatsacks are funny when they flop around with their brains spurting out.

From there it was but a SIMPLE TASK for Kang to escape and make his way back to the offices.

But enough of this! Here is the news!

*** News Flash ***

There are reports of explosions at the headquarters of the Galaxies Greatest News Outlet, the SSS.

We are reporting live from the parking lot outside the luxurious SSS HQ where we can confirm there is smoke rising from the building, and the occasional sound of small arms fire.

And I do believe somebody has just been thrown out of a top floor window. Gosh, it’s along way down from there. And that’s… wait, zoom in there…

Somebody appears to be launching burning kittens from the top floor. And the kittens are exploding, almost as if they have been… stuffed with napalm?

*** Here Is The News ***

Superfluous greetings, mellow citizens of the Peripheries.

All is well, all is good.

But beware the unclean. Beware the heretic.

Beware the alien.

Praise the Emperor Lysander, he is our sword, he is our shield.

*** Imperial Joy ***

His Royal Highness Lysander, the Emperor Of All Known Humanity and Defender Of The Faith, has been on a charm offensive this week. Throwing open the doors of one of his several glorious palaces to a special network of invited nobles and businessmen.

The Imperial Princess was on hand, as charming as ever, leaving the guests feeling blessed to have been entertained by not only the finest and most noble people in the realm, but also spiritually cleansed thanks to a stirring range of services provided by the Brotherhood.

Emperor Lysander bestows his blessings upon us all.

*** Welcome To The Showbiz Event Of The Year ***

‘Hello, and welcome to Mobile Bay, glitzy showbiz centre for this years Golden Kang awards, please try to avoid the paranoid Kastorian thugs belonging to the Military Junta’s police department, who have been interrogating many of the fans who have flocked here for a chance to see all of the movers and shakers of the Peripheries.

*** TCA Continue To Get Kicked Around The Universe ***

An unexpected group of TCA vessels appears to have escaped the recent destruction of the rest of their kind in the Inner Empire, and been brought to battle in the Sparta system.

Kang understands 6 TCA vessels have been destroyed by the same combined fleet that destroyed the others, and the feeble TCA meatsacks only managed to destroy 4 of their attackers. Though they were outnumbered about 5000 to 1.

Kang pities these worthless feeble monsters, and sincerely hopes they have now been hunted to extinction.

There has been no word on the fate of the Meklan Baron LiQuan, he still assumed to have been destroyed.

Kang has heard you cannot keep a good Meklan down. Kang cannot confirm this as he has never tried to eat a whole Meklan.

Kang can however confirm that it is entirely possible to keep a good Krell down.

*** Newsflash – Empire Nukes Planet ***

Overlord Kang has delayed publication of this weeks edition as news arrived just as he was whipping the print slaves into action that Empire forces consisting of a fleet of CIA/BHD/FET/GTT warships, has entered orbit of Mktkl in the Kastor system and commenced nuking the surface from orbit!

Kang has literally not been this excited for months.

The tedious Detinus Senate acted with surprising haste and released the following press release regarding the incident:

*** Brotherhood Caught Using Slaves ***

The religious arm of the inferior earth-thing Empire known as the ‘Brotherhood’ have revealed themselves to have some semblence of superior thinking this week, as the Falconians have discovered the use of 240 slaves at a Brotherhood mining facility.

Kang understands the slaves were being kept in cramped and filthy conditions on a miserable hellhole world. Also that they were human slaves, revealing that the Brotherhood also share the superior Flagritz races belief that this is all the puny humans are good for.

This is a good news story, and Kang is happy. Though the Falconians are not, having shifted their stance towards the BHD to ‘antagonistic’. The BHD for their part have responded tersely to the FCN going public with this news.

*** TCA Swatted Like The Insignificant Insects They Are? ***

Kang has learnt that a 700 strong warfleet has engaged the worthless TCA at the Gas Giant they’ve been loitering at in the Inner Empire of snivelling humanity.

Kang does not know for sure, but Kang suspects the TCA have just ceased to be a ‘threat’ and become more of an ‘expanding cloud of debris’.

Not that they were much of a threat to start with, the worthless alien meatsacks.
