Announcement from the Krussos Federation: Hugh O'Neil and the Celts have previously violated our borders and indulged in concealed scouting of our territory. This was an annoyance and allowed to pass. However recently, his neutrality as an independent trader has been called into question with revelations of collusion with mercenaries. Disclosures on Atala involving claim jumping and BoRG nobles when added to intelligence reports of multiple combat nobles with over 200 catapults near our border, have now shown Hugh O'Neil to be an active belligerent and a security risk to the Krussos Federation. It is the decision of the Krussos Federation to annex the territory.

***** 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 of 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.
I hope the preceding is clear and to the point, and I regret the need to post this so often. *****
