Amra would like to express the thought "oops" for having apparently incorrectly identified the Sherrif as an accomplice to Swishbuckler.

Three cheers for the end of the nasty pirate Swish-buckler & for those who brought it about. The reward is still good although I doubt you guys have many money worries.

-- Amra [g1p]

"Bad noble" said Janet "Baaad noble" "Please don't hurt me" pleaded Selwyn "I'll do whatever you say."

Gentlewind Visitation Policy

Visitors are welcome to the area controlled by the Cohorts of Colossus [vo4], as long as they obtain travel permits first. Not all requests will be granted. The affected area includes the land provinces bx25-bx27, by24-by27, and bz27. Violators of this policy may be subject to arrest.

The once rumored Orcish Free State has been suppressed.

Noren is now safely ruled by myself, and the orcs have been taught their place. There being no accidental means of entering Noren (all its shores being impassible mountainous cliffs), we feel it is reasonable to require anyone wishing to enter Noren to seek prior permission. Persons failing to do so will be considered hostile, insane, or terminally rude and dealt with in an appropriate manner.

-- Richard Rumbold [m1e]

Eastern Torba Bacor is under the care, tutelage and protection of the Dukes of Eastern Torba Bacor. Those wishing to visit are required to have -- in advance -- proper travel documents, vaccinations against the AOO flu, Iron Nation fever, the Gaulish Wyrm plague, the BtA retrovirus, and so forth.

Trespassers will be dealt with at whim....

Travellers may contact myself for assistance.

-- Bishop Hugh Latimer [l4b]


No, General Norc is not the same person as Swishbuckler. He doesn't have that much style.

Q. Why have the AOO been so quiet? A. They caught a whiff of the stink the Liberty Confederacy was making and all died of asphyxiation.

SOME DINK WANTS TA KNOW: "what is the B standing for on the Nobel list ??????"

It's generally the guys who did something really good, but still didn't win a Nobel prize.

If, however, you refer to the NOBLE list, it stands for "behind". Read the rules.

Rucksacks make bad pillows, out here on the trail.

Blanc sur rouge, rien ne bouge. Rouge sur blanc, tout fout le camp.

The LC is planning a "preemptive strike" against the Clan with No Name.

I owe, I owe, so off to work I go...

Question: Is what is certainly about to happen to Swishie's cold little butt appropriate punishment and the judgement of a just society... or is it simply a vicious display of homophobia by those lacking a well honed and subtle sense of humor?

There is One who watches you.

So, is it safe to sail out of the IC now, or what?

This money will be used to pay my hoards - or are they whores?

Hmmmm.... If the SwishBuckler's actually dead & _buried_, then doesn't that mean he can just be "resurrected"?

Hmmm boring, boring, boring.

So, did anything come of the AOO declaration of "victory"? Gee, I hate quitters.

" The LC (Liberty Confederation) What a bunch of moaners, I've heard less noise from a Dragon with belly ache, "Please, Please someone is badmouthing us in the press, and we don't like it. 'SOB, Boo Hoo' To all the sloath like moaners in the LC. Why don't you just give it a rest, we are all sick of you whining" General NARC

My first castle is complete. Now, I can finance my growing army properly

And so Swishbuckler becomes just another brown stain on the fabric of Olympian history...

Gate Crystals wanted, price and distance no object, post your price.

To all who missed a turn or more over the festive season:

HaHa! I got mine in!

And the prophet said unto his people...

Rejoice that The Seekers of Light have made a rug out of Swishbuckler's hairy butt. So as it was written, so has it been done!
