Hear ye! Hear ye!
The following is an official announcement by the Guardians of the Realms.
Due to the overwhelming response sent to me since my announcement claiming Provinces cf21-23, cg21 - 23, and ch21 - 23 I hereby renounce my claims to these provinces. I shall seek out new provinces further out South and East of this spot.
If anybody plans on claiming any areas in that area, please announce them now or else I will consider it "Open Territory."
We are still interested in trading with other factions. If you have stuff to trade, please don't hesitate. Contact me at email@example.com
Also, beware, should any faction(s) attack us, we WILL respond in kind.

We have a new world before us. This unknown, unexplored land mass is just waiting for someone to find all it has in store.
We, The Travelers, are attempting to map this large world, but we can not do it alone. If you would be willing to donate the land portions of your turn to our efforts, you will be assisting in one of the greatest projects in Olympian History!
We also collect and distribute land claims and gate information.
Send us mail: email@example.com! Visit us on the Web: http://www.spiretech.com/~jeffh/olympia/

The New World Order is currently involved in resource collection in the Camarisian provinces dm81 through dm84. Since no single faction can possibly, at this point in the game anyway, collect all the available resources in four provinces (no matter what you read in the times!) we are willing to share, but would like advance notice so no valuable time is wasted. Of course, it's a big world, so we doubt anyone will drop by, but it's better to clear these things up in advance to avoid any unpleasant misunderstandings. At some point we may make a formal claim on this or some other area, but until we do all we ask is contact from potential visitors.
Thank you, and have a nice rainy season.

The Free Citizens of Drassa would like to post our claim to ch21 and ch22. Should anyone else feel they have claim to this area, please respond posthaste. Previous disputed claims that I KNOW OF for this land have been resolved. Colonius of Drassa

To the factions we encountered last turn in Ciryon: ====================================
Worry not, we are a peaceful faction of traders and explorers, seeking a new homeland where we can build and prosper in harmony with our good neighbors. Further contact is welcomed through normal channels.

Just a short message to all those who have posted land claims in the Olympia Times. Making land claims before you have the power to enforce them is a good way to get yourself killed before you can even begin to rise in power. If you attack even one noble who violates your claims, you could easily find yourself trying to fight off a large alliance and all of their friends. However, if you fail to punish those who violate the claims, you will be seen as week, and an easy target for the aforementioned alliance. All that you can do now, is sit tight, build up your armies, and pray to Atnerks that nobody moves in on your territory.
This has been a public service anouncement from the bureau of weird smells and stupid land claims.

WE'RE MOVING!! Yes, our land claim last month caused an Icy Black stir, so we're moving to the lands around cr19. More details as they become available.

Yvengi is a louse!
Then shall the demons of light raise up mirrored towers to hide their offense; seeking to bring forth the shades of the ancients from the earth, and spears of fire from the light. Thus shall many learn of the true way of the balance, fleeing to far shores to escape its service; yet few shall reach haven, and many fall under the yoke.
The sword called knowledge shall be unsheathed. Noble, Magus and Imperator shall proclaim its virtue; trumpeting that it shall bring justice out of injustice, and lift many unto high station. Yet the blade shall cut deeply into the bowels of the earth, and burn fiercely the minds of many. Then shall they turn from its terrors and seek haven from the sword's touch, bringing forth from the secret chambers the ancient weapons of lore.

A few of Harn's more foolhardy nobles have ventured into the sewers seeking fortune. None have surfaced. Perhaps the treasures aren't so lonely...
We know how to bring harmony and peace to Olympia. Its so simple we are suprised that no one thought of it before. All it will take is that all of you do exactly as we tell you. The end result will be a virtual paradise. And if you dont follow our instruction. Well someone that is against peace, harmony and paradise is dispicable and contemptible and we know what to do with you.

Hoo Hoo I've just learned Aura Blast I wonder, I wonder... Does your target have to be in the same province as yourself? I wonder if your victim or perhaps everyone in the same province as you will know that you used Aura Blast? Hmmm, I could try... But it would be better if Anyone(????) could tell me. See you
Well I don't think much of the Web based reports. Do you?
