The mother alliance in Tiny Empires has dropped to the Minor Guilds, many of the active players have moved to Guilds where they can enjoy the fruits of titles and free ships from their "real" guild leaders.
The Hera Guild Leader, Aristotle Landry, and one of his subordinates, Bethany Frankle are "Ultrabots," automated players created with Hera as a starting place for the game. Several other Ultrabots have existed before. but they had their lines moved as Hera shrank and were deleted to the two existing ones.
There are not many active lifeforms remaining in Hera, all the Directors have fled. Rumors of pending disaster in the Hera system exist. It's not a very attractive place for anyone to move to anymore. We can only hope that the rescue ships can save the ones remaining in Hera. Maybe it will take 10,000 Reserve ships to save them? No one knows what will happen. But if your in Hera, there are 12 other Guilds that I'm sure will be happy to find you good homes and pamper you.
Personally, I had hoped to ascend from Hera, but as it shrank so did my lines growth there. As several others before have, it was time to move to a more active guild.
Last one out, please turn off the lights.
