Public Notice From Crimson Dragon Internal Security
**** To Whom It May Concern
Given the recent series of exchanges between the ICLF and HOL in the Times lately, I have decided that certain points long asserted both publically and privately should be clearly restated, in hopes of avoiding needless disappointment.
First of all, all of the continent of Camaris has been claimed by either PLATO, the CD, or other alliances whose claim the CD or PLATO is bound to uphold if asked to. Obviously we are not greatly concerned with PLATO's territorial integrity on Camaris, but we are confident that they are. Thus, anyone on Camaris who is not a member of one of these groups can expect to be attacked by either or both of them, since neither side is currently making a policy of warning specific targets before attack.
Given that our basis for war is PLATO's failure to abide by treaty, and given King Oleg's prior history of prologed conflicts and public statements of his willingness to fight on (see the G2 mailing list for his honest response to the trader in Yellowleaf), we regard it as unlikely that this war will ever conclude.
Thus, any noble on Camaris should consider themselves to be a target in a war zone, to be attacked by whatever means are most convienent. There is no safe passage or neutrality here, and probably never will be. Since both sides have the ability to teleport troops from around the world, there is no force too small to be considered a threat, even a single noble. We have been tracking a number of nobles and vessels moving about Camaris, and are disposing resources to deal with them.
We presently regard the war between the CD and PLATO as being confined to Camaris and it's adjacent waters, although the alliances of both sides to the participants in the ongoing Provinian conflict obviously render this view excessively idealistic. No matter, this conflict is not about reason and logic, do not expect it.
In summary, there is war on Camaris, and any entry lacking an explicit invitation, for any purpose, will be met in any fashion we (and, I would guess, PLATO) see fit without warning or apology. This state of affairs will last at least as long as the current inhabitants dwell there. I hope this is sufficiently clear. If it ever changes we will alert the general populace with happy cries of wonder and astonishment.

It's nice to have enough fame that I need not even announce my new additions on my web site. I can always count on friends like you to do it for me. Thanks. By the way I have adopted a new motto so if you would like to also announce that feel free. It's "Lord Foul:Making Olympia more interesting for All!"
Now to address your issue, No I am not leaving out our vast southern border but if you'll investigate further you will see all the Alliance Geography's on the web site you refer to are all vauge. I will include a few for you below as seen on the web site.
- - - CRIMSON DRAGONS-GEOGRAPHY: This Super Allance controlls vast tracks of the southern continent of Camaris mostly the western half.
HOUSE OF LORDS-GEOGRAPHY: This Alliance has complete control of the Northwestern continent of Kragstan located just west of Drassa and share ownership of Chipheria with the TIB.
LORDS OF THE CROWN-GEOGRAPHY: The Lords of the Crown are spread between Yellowleaf and Harn in southeastern Provinia. - - -
Hardly exact borders my dear JOKER. So if you want to make me look foolish please try harder next time. Also if you become man enough to sign your posts perhaps I will take you seriously untill then Happy Gamming, Or should that be Happy Cowering?
