Travellers Warning! Eastern Provinia & Western Camaris
Rimmon & Yellowleaf and entire surrounding area - Extreme Hazard Great chance to be caught up in this - stay away!
Greyfell - Hazard Getting more dangerous - stay west of line 48 (50 in br-bt), or remain in the safe haven of Greyfell. Recommended route out of the warzone is d21(Greyfell)-bs51(forest)-bs50(plain)- bs49(forest)-bs48(plain)-bs47(plain) and south and/or west from here.
Western Camaris - Ultimate Hazard! Crimson Dragons are at war, and have promised to slay all trespassers.

My hostile list is now in my inventory. If Rimmon would see the error of their ways, and leave us be, further lessons can be avoided. Unless they abandon NOE territory right now, and retreat to their territory (same as prior to the war except Annium, line 56 becomes the new border) we will be forced to continue our efforts.
You all now by now I don't react to well to threats. Thanks for your consideration, and once and for all let it be known throughout Provinia : 'trespassers notify your next of kin.'

***** To All Factions: The continent of Camaris is an active war zone. Any noble there is liable to attack without warning.
In particular, any noble not present at the express invitation of the Foriegn Minister of the Crimson Dragons is considered by the Crimson Dragons to be a hostile noble, and will be attacked without warning. Express invitation means that he will say, "Come to this place and do this thing now." All offers to join the Crimson Dragons or to attack our supposed enemies are rejected unless specifically approved by our Foriegn Minister. If he doesn't say Yes, then he probably means No.
It is not our desire to attack neutral or "newbie" factions, we consider that a waste valuable noble-days, but we are at war (which we also consider a waste of vaulable noble-days), despite our desires to the contrary, and as such we will fanatically defend the integrity of our claimed lands. We regard any entry to Camaris by any means as an invasion.
Uninvited guests will be regretfully hunted down and killed.
Don't come, we don't want you.
I hope the preceding is clear and to the point, and I regret the need to post this so often. *****
Speaking for the Crimson Dragon Ministry of Internal Security,

Do your bloodthirsty leaders feel stupid yet? If you want an out we are a forgiving nation so drop Lord Maltar a line he will give you a fair hearing.
Vultures Vultures everywhere.
Well I sure hope the savages don't notice the Inn I built.
Well, I know who I am, and I know I don't post my name all in caps. I also know that I appear at the bottom of the Times rumors, not the top, and that I don't sound quite that silly. Further, I know lots about shadows, and I know people don't form brotherhoods, or alliances, or anything else in them. They just skulk, like me.
And yes, I'm still here, and yes,
-You Know Who I Am.
