I will be on vacation starting next week through the first week of August. Hopefully I will have some net access and the turns will continue to run on time... Please be patient if you don't hear from me or if something goes wrong with the turns.

Greetings again Olympians! I know how you must tire of this weekly reminder of the TIBs alliance. But, this week it's a little different. The TIBs have established a web site.
So, instead of wasting everybodies time with a weekly message here, I can simple ask that any faction operating in the Drassa region please stop by our site at: http://members.aol.com/seehawk42/tibs.htm
The site has a general statement of purpose and a downloadable copy of our charter. Also, for all of you new players in the Safe Haven of Drassa, we also provide a map of the the immediate area to help you get started.
Anyone interested is invited to stop by. Live in peace, and make lots of money.

The Republic of Southern Camaris wishes to make public their claims to certain lands on the south coast of the Continent of Camaris.
The RSC hereby lays claim to all provinces on the continent of Camaris that lie south of and including the lines from fv70 to fh80, fh80 to fh86, and fh86 to fn90.
While we have not yet garrisoned all of these provinces, we have sufficient factions in the Republic's membership that we will require this much space at a minimum, so we claim them now to avoid future conflict with any neighbors. If you are located near us, please contact us so we might establish mutually acceptable boundaries.
We feel that these boundaries represent only a small part of the continent of Camaris, and are not unreasonable in their extent. The RSC reserves the right to expand these claims in the future.
We ask that others refrain from building or garrisoning on these lands, and that any who wish to travel in these provinces contact us so that we may know who is within our boundaries

Death awaits all who would mess with the mighty ussans!
The unholy blight of the sideways-scuttling insects that call themselves "crabs" (if you look closely, it's "r scab" scrambled) will soon be rooted out and deep- fried. People don't need to worry about them much longer. The only question is what the heck are these hedgedog guys, and where from did they spring up?

Yvengi is a louse!
The assassins are loose and the Devil may win. His demons have come to rip off your skin Night eyes will see you if you try to run. The assassin will get you and laugh like its fun.
The new god, Kygor, continues to smile upon his people and rain down his blessings upon the Mus- keteers. In the first month since being led to the chosen City, a temple has been erected to the glory of Kygor. An inn has been built, and a castle is under construction. Nobles and common folk con- tinue to flock to the City to seek knowledge of Kygor at his first temple. Some, not having actually heard of Kygor before their arrival, were drawn by some inner need to seek. As Kygor revealed through his prophet, Kane. "Build it and they will come."
This is the end! the dead now rule Yellowleaf! No doubt the heartless Crimson alliance hath made a deal with the devil himself! ahhh!
