Greetings Olympians and a special hello to all Drassans.

If you are in the northwestern region of Olympia, please take a moment to look at our web household at: http://www.telenet.pt/~dl0363/HoL.htm

It includes a map of the Kingdom of Cragstan and the surrounding area as well as important information for anyone wishing to visit our territory.

Live long and prosper, Lord Ralek Arkham Speaker for the House of Lords Kingdom of Cragstan

-- Bryan O'Neil, Ship Builder [8574]

I am a merchant and explorer setting forth from Yellowleaf on my great quest. If I blunder into your territory, I am not hostile or a threat. My ship flys the banner of "Tiger Rampant o'er Stout Roundship". If I may be of service hauling a cargo, please contact me.

Thought for the week: Avoid cliches like the plague-- they are a dime a dozen.

-- Tiger IIth [s634]

I never saw a purple cow,

I never hope to see one.

But I'll tell you this anyhow,

I'd rather see than be one!

We must apologize for our use of language in this post. We don't even know what a Belgian is--where on Olympia is Belgium after all? Those responsible for the language in the previous post have been sacked.

Please substitute the following line:

I guess protestations of neutrality didn't get the Forest Green Sash folk too far with those wicked Codrickers.

What're ya gonna do, Buckwheat? _Bleed_ on me?!?!?

Did I touch a nerve? To bad. I will kill newbi's and you can't stop me. Whine all you want I don't care. I tell you what. I will begin my spree with factions that have public turns on turn 76. There now they have a choice for defense. Does that make everyone happy? No ! Well to bad.

Not so cocky now, are you Tarl Desenea?

Monthly fortune, from the Church of Eggroll:

If a peasant asks where rain comes from, I think a cute thing to tell him is "Atnerks is crying." And if he asks why Atnerks is crying, another cute thing to tell him is "Probably because of something you did."

Standing on ProudRock Provinia..

Eagle Alliance forces, under the guise of SOA (Southern Ossicus Alliance), landed a force in the port city of ProudRock. Few casualties so far, but the force is expected to move inland and raze Bandit castles.

Peasants in the area report confusion between the lead nobles. In peace talks between Bandit and SOA leaders, the SOA was quoted in saying "Join Eagle or DIE!" The exact size of the opposing forces is unknown at press time, but EA forces are said to far outnumber Bandit forces in the area.

The change in EA has finally come. Some say it's a good thing. EA simply retaliated. But to wait 10 years to retaliate against the Bandits seems like a long time to this reporter. And EA is already involved, albeit in a minor way, with LotC vs Harn. PLATO quickly joins their allies, but EA shuns LotC as the insane uncle. But they still hide behind secrecy. SOA was a front for EA's attack, but the secret got out. The Bandits have been causing trouble for years on Olympia.

EA is afraid to attack it's real enemy PLATO. It looks as if EA wants to always keep everything secret. Even the existence of Eagle was a secret until the Yellowleaf War.

What other conspiracy do they have planned?
