ICLF Freedom Fighters strike fear into the hearts of two [count 'em two] Lords Lackies in daring, but poorly timed raid on Stoga!
Details are sketchy, but some mangy Poofter was reported scurrying back to the sewers what hatched him, whilst a Seeker has sought a higher plane of existance. Unfortunately, the liberation forces in this former Inner Circle capitol city are Dwarfed by their opponants, whom wandered up from down below at just the wrong time.
Asked of the impact of losing another Freedom Fighter so soon after the capture of ICLF spokesman Bonn Chance, a spokesman to be named later stated "There's more where he came from".

Just a little south of Drassa there's an fella known as The Gloved Hand. He sells weapons of all shapes and sizes, one's that'll really stike fear in the hearts of your enemies. But when you go to visit The Gloved Hand, you'd better bring your gold pieces, because his weapons will take the skin off your enemies' bones, but he won't take American Express.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.

Greetings Fellow Olympians.
This is just a reminder for anyone mapping realms in Olympia that the Syr-Antin Lands and borders are rows BS-BX columns 37-42. Any changes to this will be printed in the Times. I will soon be opening my weapons shop, hopefully carrying shipments to Greyfell so as to be more convenient to potential buyers, again more info will be in the Times when available. Any visitors to Syr-Antin lands are warned that armed parties are not tolerated except if prior concent has been gained. Any such parties will be swiftly dealt with. This is a peaceful neighborhood and we intend to keep it that way. Our inns are always open and kegs always flowing for the peaceful explorers and traders travelling the lands in search of riches.

Greetings people, To the Rimmon Musketeers I would like to say, please hang in there for just a few more turns because I'm on my way back to your territory. After spending 10k gold on 'relaxation' I think it is time I get into action again.
I would also like to thank Lord Maltar for starting this war against us, we have learned a lot about false friends and betrayal but we've never had this much fun. (Sorry Oleg)
