That is a serious understatement. Your problem was, you had 'employed' too many of your population, meaning your growth rate was almost strangled, and you had little spare to recruit in case of emergencies or new technologies.
Man I wish I had had the time to play. If this comes back, so will the Patwa.
I liked the Patwa a lot. If I resurrected Borderlands though, it's unlikely I would do another PA game (only because I'm not a fan of doing the same thing twice). It would, however, be thematically very similar to the old one, with a radically different setting. You'd be welcome, as would any of the old players.
