One of the benefits of moving Fed2 to a new server is that it won't cost us so much to run the game. However, there is still a cost, and the only way we can pay that cost is if enough of you buy slithy toves. If you have ever heard the expressions TANSTAAFL, it stands for There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Lunch (coined by the great science fiction author Robert Heinlein), and in the case of Fed2, there certainly ain't no such thing as a free internet connection, or free server rental.

So please, if you want to see the best game in the whole damn universe keep going, go and buy some slithies. You can make one-off purchases of anything between 2 and 10 slithies, at a cost of $5 per slithy, or you can take out a monthly subscription to pay 8 UK pounds (at today's exchange rate that's just a bit less than $15) and get four slithies each month - which in effect gives you a 25% discount.

Whichever method you choose, go to the extras page and buy some slithies.
