I was hoping for a tad more from this when I first saw the title, and seeing that I tend to not enjoy most 30 subs I began reading this with trepidation. However, with a few events happening lately this sort of hit home so I read it regardless and find it rather helpful. Someone should have put this up long ago.
I applaud you Cheka for writing this, as only a few of the original hard core Strolenties will appreciate this for what it really is. Kudos.
Oddly enough I read this two days ago and seemed to not have voted or commented on it at all. I like it, the backstory is quirky and detailed enough from a single perspective it reminds me of why I love backstory. Even though it might not be a story that the players will ever find out it is still a much needed bit of context to any sub I think. Kudos to you.
