South & West CAMARIS Update


Monthly notice: every new visitor to either of

our two fair isles should notify us in advance.

(We'll shoot first and ask questions later, for a

few turns, due to the recent Times "challenge".)

-- The Crazy Quilters [vn7]

Hi everybody! My greetings to all of you from the " Russian Bears "! (By the way, who is Oleg from rumors in Olympia Times ?)

-- Lord Alex [p4x]

Customer Testamonial on behalf of the First Bank of Provinia

Greetings, Provinians! My name's Jack and these are my beans. I'm a trader. I travel Provinia buying and selling the finest beans and linen. How did I get this great career? The First Bank of Provinia gave me a small-business loan. That's how! They have everything a businessman like myself could need: low-interest loans, high interest rates, newbie bonuses, warehouse facilities, shipping services... What else could you ask for?

So take it from me, Jaques et ses Haricots, don't wind up lying in the gutters of Imperial City weaving baskets. Stop by the First Bank of Provinia a call. You'll be glad you did.

-- Jaques et ses Haricots [x1a]


Canaries beware! We will find you. And when we do, you'll say... "I did ,I did saw a puddy cat!"

Who is this blowhard called Clan Dumbaid?

The real question is has anybody withdrawn money from the Bank of Provinia after depositing it.

Hitting newbies is in fashion again.

Yes, Oleg would fall so low as to write rumors just to get the 25 gold.

Oh no. Not my mage again!

Coastal reef! But, I'm in the middle of the blankity-blank ocean for gods sake. What gives.

Do 4-character noble IDs mean older factions? I am new and have 3-character noble IDs.

***Cliche' alert*** It's quiet. Too quiet. ***Thank you for your attention ***

Well, now you just pissed me off! How did my mage die? If you don't return him, unharmed, I'll be forced to sit here and damn well do nothing about it.

Just remember though, I know who you are, and as soon as I finish with what I'm doing now, I'm gonna find you, and kick your ass. I'll kick all your little friends asses too, if they try to help you. Just thought you might like to know.

>Has anyone ever made a deposit at the First Bank of Provinia? > --- Curious Newbie [i0u]

You might do well to look at the player list. You'll notice that they're not listed. I think that they took all the money and ran.

Also, I hope that [i0u] is just your way of saying "I owe you", otherwise you're begging for an ass-kicking of royal proportions.

--- Not so helpful [l8r]

>Hey! BtA!! What's that on yer tie?

Wow, you found my scruples! Now what will I do...?

>Anyone want to fight?

Sure, just tell me your ID#, and I'll come and find you as soon as I'm ready.

>Duke Zeegan wears pink fuzzy panties.

Only on wednesdays.

>I did not find anything in IC either.

You must have been to slow. I got all kinds of neat stuff.

more for me.

Spare change?

I borrowed money from the First Bank of Provinia. When I could not pay it back, they repossessed my horse and broke my thumbs. That bean selling idiot is the Bank's enforcer. If anyone sees him passing through their province, kill him.

Is the game over and no one told me?

AOO is already in G2!!

What is the smallest Times post to receive Money ???

This time it's for real.

Due to the lack of any signs of life from Brett Miller and the RGS. I am removing certain elements of his faction in order to clear room for other allies. I wish him the very best. Perhaps we'll see him in G2.
