Did the Game of Rassilon require Adobe Flash Player?

On your recent internet travels, you may well have stumbled across a few thousand ads for something called Evony. Contrary to appearances, this is not a tacky nightclub in Essex, but actually some sort of online world-building game thingy. Nonetheless, it is mainly notorious for its delirious stream of increasingly ridiculous advertising, promising scantily clad thrills that the game itself apparently fails to deliver.

I began to wonder whether a similarly brazen approach could be used to sex up even the most manipulative and tedious of galactic gameplaying scenarios, and this is what I came up with.
