The second month of Shadow-watch passes, and indeed, it is we who seem to be the fools For even deigning to respond To the childish drivel Spewing forth from this pittance of an alliance

Dear Sir's and Madams of Olympia

Again I would like to thank the people who responded to my post reference the 'pirates' of my ship from Greyfell. An un-named source has once again sent me the info on the where-abouts of the little scandrals and a mistake last turn resulted in this infomation not being released. Grrrr. Oh well such is life. For unyone that likes to teach others a lesson or simply for those who would be good enough to send me info this is the info from LAST week. It would have changed obviously but they will be in the general area. Take note as there are a few 'Items' involved here which may boost someones army at very little cost.

The Nobles Involved: Poseidon [7643] The Captain and ocean going leader of these useless Pirates. If he is a God couldn't he have just parted the seas and let the rest walk ????? Diana [1088] She has 2 winged horses with her and is probably Poseidon's wench.......or maybe Zeus's. You never know with these myth dudes. Ares [8611] Again he has 3 winged horses and his name looks like a typo.....isn't it spelt ars.....you know what I mean. Zeus [6299] Now this guy has 4 harpies with him. Nice little addition to someones army huh. A god he is not. Athena [7771] Humm another wench being dragged around. She has a further 3 winged horses which would make this a profitable attack by anyone with a few troops in the right location.

Remember people this is a newbie group of pirates that are willing to play dirty so are therefore....in my eyes, in for anything they get.They must land one day and you can get their last known location from last weeks POST. It is a cherry waiting to pop, may the God's of Luck drop this ripe harvest in your lap before myself or my copatriots catch up to them.

Hey, I'm not a member of the SA, but I'm curious about what's going down. Let's hear from the rank and file! Your old leaders used to make pious-sounding pronouncements that nobody believed, ominous threats that we laughed off while they secretly made us nervous, and cool cloak-and-dagger stuff like the "noble-with-a-death-threat" rumor. Your new spokesman seems to want to just hand you all a bunch of big noses and funny hats and make sure nobody takes you seriously anymore. Is that OK by you? -- someone who misses the old SA

Yvengi is a louse!

Are you a Shadow Alliance member? If you are you must be very proud right about now. Ha Ha Ha. Seriously I think you have been taken by Lord Angelo.

It's not that I am a rumor monger it's just that I need the gold!

WAR...? 30 cataults have been sighted just off the Port Arnous. They are heading north!

S#*T !!!! I was wrong.... you have 7 turns to prepare.

And I NEVER Bluff.

In reference to messages from The SKULL.

If you (or your buds') start your #### war, my group will do its best to see that you go down fast and hard.

We have little in the way of arms but have amassed a huge amount of intelligence.

For example: As of turn 58 you had 6 nobles, 3 of which have the skill Beastmastery.

I repeat:

We would normally not get involved. But we will provide information to any group attacked by or attacking players involved in a "Going Out In A Blaze Of Glory" campaign.

NOTE: Our information indicates that the group represented by "The Skull" is planning on hitting somewhere on the South/West Coast Of Provinia

Alas, poor Lord Angelo, a man of infinite jest. I knew him, Horatio.
