    On my yearly run through of the series just since you started watching it. I dunno how far you’ve gotten, but there have been a few preachy parts, but they’re preachy and substantive. I have a few I’m directly lifting for use in a Space Nation roleplay, because it fits so well.

    If only contemporary anime can do the same. As much as I enjoy Kantai Collection, it’s enjoyment due to the fact I’m a player, and nothing else.

    It can be like that. The one I’m in is play-by-post in a forum, and is more of a story/narrative driven thing. I believe there are some d20 systems that can support such a game.

    But basically, you are now the Space Kingdom of Whateveristan, and you are to somehow either coexist with your fellows in the galaxy (players or NPCs), or subjugate them all.

    If I had more time for playing MMO than I am willing to waste now, I’d choose Eve Online:

    I’d rather run a spaceship than an empire.
