Greetings once again. This is a personal message from me, Eric the Seehawk, and not an official message from TIB.
I am attempting to put together a "political" map of Olympia and need your help. This map is not concerned with city locations or terrain, it is solely concerned with the borders of groups and alliances. I'm in contact with so many players it's difficult to keep track of where everybody is! This map is for my own personal use and will not be shared with other players. It is simply a tool so that I know who I'm talking to and where they are.
If you are interested in aiding me in this chore, and making it easier for me and TIB to deal with you and your group in the future, please forward me an outline of your claimed land. Be as detailed or as vague as you wish.
I'm not sure what kind of response I'll get to this post, but I'll thank everybody in advance for their time and effort.

Hello Olympians I am The Wraith
Since the apparent demise of the psuedo-organization called "Shadow Alliance", there has been a void in the world of Olympia and I and my cohorts intend to fill it. We are The Wraith Society. Named after the illustrious leader of the organization - Me.
The Wraith Society will not make the same mistakes our predessors made. We will not make specific threats that we cannot possibly hope to carryout. Oh no. All of our threats will be sufficiently shrouded in mystery and riddles so that nobody will be 100% sure what they mean. So when we fail to make good on our threats, nobody will be the wiser.
We will continue the use of terror and secrecy to further our goals and will use just enough humor so that nobody takes us seriously. But make no mistake. We are real and we will make good on just enough threats that we can't be ignored.
Some of you may be wondering, "what kind of wack job is this Wraith?". Others may be wondering, "how can I join?". Well, nuts to you first type of people. And to you second type, we have only 3 requirments to join the Wraith Society.
1) you must have a hotmail account (of course)
2) you must be able to compose sufficiently vague, spooky, paranoid rants that have a better than 50% chance of being true.
3) you must be willing to heed the call of The Wraith when the call goes out to take over the world.
If you are interested in joining, send email to: Wraithsociety@hotmail.com
If any player receives email from somebody claiming to be a member of the Wraith Society you are welcome to email me for confirmation of their membership.
For my first ghostly messages from beyond.......
The thieve's arrogant stone will soon be a twig in the nest.
It can mean more than "The Icy Black".
While there are many tatoos, it appears none are seascapes.
"All for One". But who is the "one"?
The Vulture Speaks:
>The Musketeers getting involved in local southern matters? >I think not. If anything can be sais about those darn >Vultures is that they certainly have a wild imagination. >I wonder if that is due to lack of food? > "The Unnamed Musketeer"
Name yourself, Musketeer, and your head will be covered in offal.
>Only one short little line form the "SA" in the last Times. >But a lenghty posting from the vulture and a neat little >entry from this group of mange ridden dogs calling >themselves the "MLP". I submit to you, the reader, that >both are fronts for the cowards known as the "SA".
Of course we're cowards you idiot, we're carrion birds. If we were brave don't you think we might have a tad healthier diet? But a front for the SA? What a bunch of parrot crap.
>Where is the Church of Eggroll priests now? We've got dead >bodies washing up from Yellowleaf to Harn and no one to lay >them to rest. Except these ravenous vultures. God help us!!!
Think of us as a necessary service provider. Too many corpses to bury after a tough day at the war? Call 1-800-VULTURE for all your rotting flesh disposal needs.
Now that the yellow press has been dealt with, on to more important matters. The war goes apace, providing good eating for all. Just when it looked bad for Harn the Codrickers got a bit cocky, attacking a well-defended castle with a force that wasn't quite up to the task. Five dead nobles-- Ouch! That Sir William had very tasty eyeballs by the way. The big question is, does Harn have the will to follow up on their victory? We shall see soon enough.
As for the other alliances, they do seem to be staying out of the conflict. Eagle continues to show their true colour-- yellow, as they let yet another ally go down in flames. We hear that PLATO is busy elsewhere, pacifying an ancient enemy, and now that Harn is doing better will likely skip this war and wait for the next one. The only way that might change is if the Tatooed Love Boy can't handle a sword as well as he runs a cash register. As for Rimmon, those offalheads seem to be all talk and no walk. Musketeers? Couchketeers is more like it.
Come on, humans, get involved and get killed! The wife just laid another clutch of eggs and we need more fresh meat!
Yvengi is a louse!
He rocked the boat Did Ezra Shank. These bubbles mark O O O O Where Ezra sank.
Only strong personalities can endure history, the weak ones are extinguished by it.
Cawode still stands and the desert winds blow sand over the corpses of many dwarves and men of the Crown. A few pitiful remnants scuttle around the countryside looking for a deep hole. "Mercy" the prisoners cry. They are shown the same mercy that was soon Noire Immortalis.
Hey who left the gate open??
Oh no now look the city is full of Dwarves. Will someone get Codric to get his performing midgets out of Greton before they lower the land values?
And its getting on to summer and we don't want them shedding hair all over the place.
The things I'd do for 25 gold.
In the Halls of Horseman's Keep:
"My Lord, there are over 300 dwarves at the gate." "Yes, these little jesters have come to entertain us."
Monthly fortune, from the Church of Eggroll:
I guess we were all guilty, in a way. We all shot him, we all skinned him, and we all got a complimentary bumper sticker that said, "I helped skin Egraal."
Actually these are not rumors!
Egraal is Great!!!!!
> Where is the Church of Eggroll priests now? We've got dead > bodies washing up from Yellowleaf to Harn and no one to lay > them to rest. Except these ravenous vultures. God help us!!!
The Church of Eggroll priest are on the way, but these peasant pulled rickshaws are slow!
I'm interested to see how the "History of the Lords, year 9 month 3" will be written. If at all.
Well that looks like there is someone going to war.. Is it Plato or is it Harn or is it LoTC... very interesting.... If any getts a good vision of beastboy or Vlad... please post it along...it could be interesting to see where this force is...and where they are going. But especially to see What They Have!
an interested bystander.
Birds circle overhead.... How did the battle go? Who won..Who lost...How many dead? Where are the prisioners? An interesting turn of events...
Now perphaps the borg will see... Resistance is NOT futile.. Ensign engage at warp 9.
