Every single good idea I had for an April Fool's Day prank this year arrived in my head (or, in a couple cases, the heads of other R.C. members) between April 2nd and April 14th.

And also, the fact that "romantic" does not simply mean "goinked".
I also did not know what "goink" means.

I think I found out:

I'm guessing you got it from context, but my source for is the *amazing* webcomic Narbonic - which completed it's run ages ago so you can safely read the whole thing. (We have signed copies of the collection).

This is mostly off topic, other than the root of the word "goink". :D

The reason their lore box doesn't say that is probably lack of space.

*or, per the Glossary list of synonyms, that they are "husband", "wife", "mate", "married", "wedded", "imzadi", "beloved", "bride", "mistress", "widow", "divorced," and/or "boinkbuds" to one another.
As an aside, I really wish that the search engine had some sort of "romantic partner" option so that I don't have to type those search terms in one at a time once every four months.

Im glad I got all of these funny responses. I wasnt expecting them to be made, but if Gracie is pregnant, then theyd of had to "mate" unless Maury is gonna show up and Geoff is actually the father. But till then, Ill still be disappointed that we dont have them ingame avail options 🤣

But sex != romance.

(And as I alluded, G&G's story gets rather dark if you consider it to be "two kids were found in the woods and locked in a room together for other people's entertainment for their entire lives, until their captors decided it was too expensive to feed them and abandoned them on the side of the road")

Data (Cold Front) has that front covered at least. So Jenna has her man.
Well, yes and no. Jenna only has a romantic partner because that Data references her. Her own lore still references a personnel who does not exist.

She also references Telemarius III. Not every word on every card needs to be tied to a game mechanic.

edit: Also, Jenna does *not* reference a romantic partner. Even ignoring the "unsuccessful", it says "romantic relationship", which is *not* "romantically involved". And "relationship" is not on the list of synonyms.

Not every word needs to be tied to a game mechanic, but "romantic" is tied to a mechanic, and ties Lt. Commander Data to that mechanic as well.

Telemarius III isn't a broken link because no card makes Jenna care about it being in play. If a personnel with the [OS] icon mentioned Telemarius III in lore, then it would be a broken link because Preserver Obelisk would make it matter.
