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 fh83, fh83 to fp88, and fp88 to fp90.
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. This means you, Tuuru and Set. :)

I've had my fill of Inn keeping and am heading elsewhere to seek my fortunes. Any prospective entreprenuers interested in running their own small business should reach me as soon as possible. The Leaky Spigot located just outside of Sweetwood township west of Harn is up for sale. I'm giving it away for the bargain price of 200 gold. You should see a return on your investment in two to three months (game turns). It's a nice warm clean place that sees many travellers. Don't miss this opportunity, first comer will get the deed. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org !

plengy has a mouse?
Yvengi is a louse!
The enforced passivity of their defense, the interminable waiting, became insupportable. Day and night they heard the muffled thud of the picks above and dreamt of the collapse of the grotto and of every ghastly eventuality. They were subject to "castle mentality" in its most extreme form.
The blessings of Kygor flow and the numbers of the Rimmon Musketeers grow.
Good lord. I hope I discover magical barrier soon so I can fence out those stupid savages! You can kill 'em. But that blasted drum (I now have quite a collection of them--I should open a museum), as I was saying, that drum that they beat last turn will bring another savage who will in turn beat his drum before I can blast him away. I've seen savages appear out of nowhere in a civ-2 province! Those sneaks! Or maybe it's the local adolescents gone primitive. Anyway, I think the only solution is to fog 'em, because they don't seem to beat their drums if they can't see something they want to tear down. Then find 'em in the fog & destroy them utterly. Bloody savages!
PS: I think we can safely say that someone went a little too ballistic with the savage code changes.
Have care when traveling north of br49-50, many savages about
Savages are attacking Sweetwood!!! The mouth of the South
