Heh.  I've already established that the RACCies are in continuity for Superhuman 
World 2010.  If I broke that rule for 2011, *then* I'd be making a mess on my 
nice clean continuity, wouldn't I.

Yes, this officially makes LNH part of my omniverse.  Resistance is futile. 
My Earth may not be much of a threat, but how good are the Legion's defenses 
against trillions of alien colony ships which adapt to most anything?  8{D>

Heh.  I think my lucky character can provide enough desperate hand waves on 
his/her own for any behavior anomalies, even without being exposed to 
extra-universal forces.

Only their myths concerned peace and contentment, and that in such a
coercive, sullen package it was obvious that the Earth humans resented
the very idea.
