A 1994 Description

One interesting historic fact about F.O.E.: Originally [Forces of Empire] began as a sort of joke. I was a member of a group in Florida known as "The Royal Order of the Rebel Forces," run by Paula Truelove (of Flip of a Coin fame). Some friends and I decided to give her a little friendly fun and began sending Imperial transmissions to her Rebel Royalness. Someone suggested we should turn it all into an actual club, offering friendly competition to the Rebel "upstarts". So, laughing through it all, I typed up (on a manual typewriter) the first issue of Executor Logs, the newsletter of The Supreme Order of the Imperial Forces. It was 2 pages long. And it went out to 15 people. Boy, have we come a long way from such an amusing beginning! [1]
