Greetings once again fellow Olympians. We are the TIBs, a peaceful alliance operating in the Drassa region. I'm sure you've seen our posts before.
This one is slightly different. In recent turns our numbers have grown, while our territory has not. We would like to take this opportunity to change that.
Beginning this turn TIB territory will now include all lands around Drassa. Bordered to the east by column 28, and bordered to the south by row cp (this is a change from our last post). The coast of the Great Sea forms our western and northern borders.
We do not claim sole right to these lands for resources or construction. All are free enjoy the bounty of Provinia. Merely, this area will now be patrolled by TIB patrol, and as such, is now under TIB rule. The rules of no attacking noble & no castle construction now apply.
If you have any questions or concerns, and would like more information on the TIBs alliance, please contact me.

"Who holds a griffon with each arm? Who swats snakes, with no fear of harm? Who sleeps with dragons in the buff? (OK, they're tats. Still, buy our stuff!)"
HEALING POTIONS!!!! Sick and tired of paying through the nose for that contract loyalty? Running out of noble points for oaths? What you need is to rule your nobles by fear! An 84 point terrorize, immediately followed by a healing potion, will keep your man in fearful loyalty for the entire game! Terrorize your nobles in complete safety with The Illustrated Man's healing potions, at a mere 150 gp apiece. Potions currently for sale: c108 d018 g666 (the potion of the beast)
The following items are also currently for sale:
Crossbows: 12 gp, quantity 20 PRICES SLASHED!!! Blast those monsters with ease, with the Illustrated Man's fine weapons!
MAPS: 50 gp The Maps of the Illustrated Man were famous throughout G1. Now you too can own your own personal maps of the world and the Yellowleaf area. These aren't just indecipherable ascii, or little colored blocks. Every terrain and interior location has its own graphic design or symbol. Background grids make finding locations easy. Plus, every 20x20 area has its own coordinate chart...no more scrolling all over the place looking for what number a particular province is. Our maps cover considerably more territory than other publicly available maps. Our northwestern border reaches to or nearly to Holith, Rhonius, Ganith, Cado, Sesklos, and Delorn. Never heard of those cities? Then you'll need us, won't you? Best of all, the Illustrated Man will mail your map right to your house. Just give us your street address and we will mail you a map directly, in full color, suitable for hanging by your computer. You can get your map for free if you let us know 7 or more provinces that we didn't have before. All info must be fully publishable.
If you hail from Yellowleaf, you need to visit

The small group was weary from several months of travel. They had enjoyed the brief respite they had from the journey when they had joined together with others of their comrads in building the Hawk's Nest Inn. But since leaving there, they had been led through a dank and unholsome swamp land, rife with many an unsavory beast. The young man bearing the banner or the silver wolf and his young friends had never been so far from their homelands, yet they were determined in their bond with their allies to raise a new standard in a new land. The group of travelers came to a clearing in the forest and were brought up by those in the lead. A man in crimson robes raised his hand and pointed towards a city across a stream. "This is the place. Praise Kygor for showing us the way. From here the Rimmon Musketeers will go forth in strength to establish the Peace of Kygor. All the lands of Olympia shall be blessed and all evil doers shall be cast down."
Sixty four provinces claimed, eh? & right around a safe haven too. Darned lordly nobles think they can boss around us newbie's eh? Well, they'll soon learn a thing or two 'bout manners!

Praise be to the great Gods of Olympia. She has returned to mortal form and blesses us with her presence. All Hail Nessa T-LAM
The only difference we can see is that crabs taste better boiled with melted butter and lemon, whereas frogs taste better breaded and pan fried with ranch dressing or a little barbeque sauce.

For sale to the highest bidder, the corpse of one Kheldrake, late of the Ussun Bandits. This peice of filth was once a 3 point noble so he may have had some talents that are useful to a necromancer, though I can't honestly say that his battle skills were worthy of note. Rest assured this varmint won't be troubling the innocent travellers of this world any more.
