In need of more troops or a second flank? How about an armed escort through hostile wilderness or dangerous waters? Then contact "The Brotherhood of the Red God" (The BoRG), and for a modest fee we can send an escort by caravan on land or via ship in dangerous waters. In general we are swords for hire and for the right price, will attack almost any target.

Yes, I have a question for the PGA. I recently went to a local club in the Yellowleaf area, and was barred from playing on their course. I was told it was because of the cleats I had, but I think it was due to my affiliation with PLATO. I offered to buy a pair of regulation shoes, but they told me the club store was closed due to some obscure holiday or something. I thought this kind of small-minded discrimination was a thing of the past. We PLATO members have gone a long way to better our image among the community. The rest of society has left the past and their ignorant ancestors behind - why hasn't the golf community?

sincerely, The Shunned PLATOan

I've been trying to figure out what order Sir Codric used to father a child. It's nice to know the game has more depth than I thought, but I think that anyone who discovers such an important feature (bug???) should share it with all of us.
