As our first project here at the revived Planets Magazine, we wanted to touch base with Joshua and get a look at some of the coming events we have to look forward to at Planets Nu. He’s agreed to let us see a little bit of what he’s got in mind for the coming months.
(The following has been condensed from a rather lengthy email chain. Just, you know, kinda imagine we’re in a comfy studio with nice cups of tea and a plate of cookies, chilling. -Editor)
Hi! I’m Gnerphk and this is Talespin. (Pretend you can see him wave. He’s waving now.) We’ve tracked down the enigmatic Joshua to ask him a few questions about Planets Nu: how we’re doing, where we’re heading, and what we’re likely to see in the future.

The Planets.NU Commanders Map
Planets.Nu has a great and very active community. We all like to chat and discuss about our favorite game for hours. It’s fun to do it online and meet Commanders from all over Planet Earth, it is even more fun to do it face to face. I have done it in the past, small gatherings with 3-4 other Commanders who live nearby or having a beer with a Commander who find some time during a business trip to your city.
Therefore, Planets Magazine introduces the Planets.NU Commanders Map.
