Player-contributed press

There is a rumor that says that, if the Barcelona Dragons wins the next World Bowl in Sunday 22, some thousand Giant Lizards, Monster Alligators and half a dozen different kind of Dragons and other spit fire beasts, makes a Mega-Party in a valley near Imperial City, with games, shows and music. The games consist in competitions like "Catch-a-Knight", "Burn-a-Wizard" or "Who-Eats-More-Peasants?", an all the competitors win an award. No one will be dissapointed. Show consists in demostrations of acrobatic fly by The Flying Dragons Squadron; "How to frost a village" by The Ice Dragon Co.; "Crossbowman Barbecue" by Fire Dragons Inc and many more. Knight, Wizards and peasants are all welcomed and encouraged to participate in the games. Traders are also welcomed, but only if they bring popcorn. Enjoy!!!

We have a new world before us. This unknown, unexplored land mass is just waiting for someone to find all it has in store.

We, The Travelers, are attempting to map this large world, but we can not do it alone. If you would be willing to donate the land portions of your turn to our efforts, you will be assisting in one of the greatest projects in Olympian History!

We also collect and distribute land claims and gate information.

TOWER FOR SALE OR RENT An alliance has contacted your favorite tattooed merchant with news of a tower in Yellowleaf that is being tenanted, but not used. This tower is finished and ready for use: just contact me and make me an offer for this prime piece of real estate. Or rent for just 50 gp a month!

The following items are currently for sale:

Crossbows: 12 gp, quantity 20 PRICES SLASHED!!! Blast those monsters with ease, with the Illustrated Man's fine weapons!


Maps: 50 gp The Maps of the Illustrated Man were famous throughout G1. Now you too can own your own personal maps of the world and the Yellowleaf area. These aren't just indecipherable ascii, or little colored blocks. Every terrain and interior location has its own graphic design or symbol. Background grids make finding locations easy. Plus, every 20x20 area has its own coordinate chart...no more scrolling all over the place looking for what number a particular province is. Our maps cover considerably more territory than other publicly available maps. Our northwestern border reaches to or nearly to Holith, Rhonius, Ganith, Cado, Sesklos, and Delorn. Never heard of those cities? Then you'll need us, won't you? Best of all, the Illustrated Man will mail your map right to your house. Just give us your street address and we will mail you a map directly, in full color, suitable for hanging by your computer. Also, act now and we'll send you a fully legible map of the known world. You can get your map for free if you let us know 7 or more provinces that we didn't have before...namely, provinces around or to the northwest of the cities previously named. All info must be fully publishable. Buy in now, and get a discount on future editions!

So, is anybody else having problems making money?

7:14 And one day they shall come, and rule over us. We shall know them by the toads they carry, and by the strange red marks on their elbows, and by the little things, that are part of other things, that we won't know the purpose of.

And when they come to rule us, we shall be happy, and fruitful, and subtract. They will perform the bastinado on us, and we shall rejoice in it.

And we will work for them, making tall ships, and great castles, and clay pots. We will dig in bogs for spiny root, and search dark caves for pretus bones, and in circles of trees for Juicy Fruit.

The Book of Provinia

To all members of the GPL:

If you haven't heard, the Word is given. All preparations should be completed by the beginning of Thunder and Rain. We meet in the agreed upon province, and march to victory and glory!

Yellowleaf craves more opium.

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.

To avoid possible misunderstandings, do not enter this area without a permit, nor collect resources without express permission. Violators of this policy may be subject to arrest.

I only rarely refuse reasonable requests, and then only because I've already granted my quota.

This policy helps ensure the security of all nobles within these lands. If you are interested in a franchise on collecting resources in one of these provinces, please contact me. I have friendly arrangements with several factions along these lines.

-- Sheriff Pelenth of Gentlewind [f3i]

Who are these Jackals anyway?

The Frog Alliance haughtily ignores the so-called "Crab v. Frog" Alliance's warning about Ferenth. Assuming you had guts enough to put the true location of your little rathole in the Times--a big assumption--we will find it and we will root you out like the burrowing little insects you are. Why not post a province id? Frogs rule! -The Frog Alliance

Make damn sure you want it when you claim that 100 stone. :-)

Running out of money is seriously detrimental to your health.
