Olympians! Look out, Here I come!!!

-- Fortunes [ea9]

The Vulture [s356] is nothing but a no-good, cowardly assasin. He attacked an unarmed noble which was minding his own business and killed him. If you see him, be on your watch. If you believe in justice please slay him on sight. This lowly dog will find himself swinging from the closest tree if I get my hands on him.

Hello fellow Olympians! It's been some time since our "standard" post so we thought we'd speak up once again. The TIB Allaince operates around the safe haven city of Drassa and has a presence on most Northwestern continents. If you are in this area we invite you to review our web site at: http://members.aol.com/seehawk42 for information about our alliance.

We are also happy to report that negotiations on the continent of Cipheria have finally come to an end and we have settled borders. Our web site will be updated soon (although probably not by time you read this notice). In general, TIB controls the northeastern portion of Cipheria and all TIB rules are assumed to be in effect.

If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact me directly.

Eric the Seehawk TIB Minister of Foreign Affairs

Let it be known that the House of Lords has settled on western Cipheria. This area shall be known as the Duchy of Jelling, and compromises all land provinces west of column 11, all ocean provinces adjacent to a land province west of column 11, and all sublocations contained within. The House of Lords laws apply to this territory as defined by article 1.3.

Greetings Fellow Olympians,

The SOA is maintaining a military presence on Bandit territory in order to prevent further attacks by the Bandit Lords. The SOA will continue with this policy as an independant alliance. This is an SOA action, not an Eagle action, and we resent anonymous detractors who claim we can't fight our own battles with opponents our own size.

Neutrals in the area should display some evidence of their neutrality, or contact the SOA, or a third party communicating with the SOA. House of Aekinskald, the Jackal Alliance, and the other Ossicus alliances have already made such communications. Military units and resource gatherers in the areas south and east of Port Aurnos should be particularly careful. We regret any inconvience this may cause.

Peace and Prosperity to all,

Lord Saggar,Speaker of the House, Southern Ossicus Alliance.

Betcha there's a press from Captain Arrr in this Times issue :)

Soon the hunter will become the hunted...

Vulture beware!

Sincerely, Ben Dover

When the going gets tough, the tough gets weird. And when the going gets weird, the weird get going...

- Risque de Ville

The vulture bites the big one! Newbie-killing is for rodents and losers, not scavengers. Check your species; carrion-eaters seldom suck as much as you do.

- the Lowlander

In the sky in the morning, on the ground around lunchtime, 6 feet under soon.

The water logged wood is next. How many troops can you withstand? 1000? 1500? Will your mages be able to save you?

Chomp, chomp, craaaack, slurp, slurp, slurp, chomp...

Sorry I haven't Spoke in awhile, but there has been way too much in the way of yummies available and as a primitive life form I haven't been able to resist. If you look up gorge in your Funk and Wagnall you just might see my picture next to the definition.

The war goes well for the Vulture, folks. Love to see this kind of slaughter, with corpses of Codrickers, Harnites, Horselords, PLATOnians, and even a few Tattoed types just littering the fields of Southwest Provinia. Keep it up gang, we are loving the carrion smorgasbord.

On the political front, good to see that TIBS has withdrawn from EAGLE. We hear old E the P didn't care for the underhanded and dishonest way Cendage likes to fight a war. Nice move, Eric.

There's lots more to say, but I just spotted some fresh Codricker entrails spilled on the ground below and I can't resist a still warm kidney. One thing I do want to say before I get back to work is that your friendly Vulture is in no way related to this cretin: Vulture [s356]. Whoever this loser is, he is not your Fine Feathered Friend behind these clever articles posted herein on occasion.

Someone Asked: > Ah, shall there be new wine from old grapes?

No, just new whining about sour grapes.

-- The Answer Guy

Who is the Olympian Mafia? Does anyone fear them? Why don't they just go away. Stop thinking you all have long arms. Cuz you all really do not.
