Again all Hail! All nobles and factions in the Drassa region please be aware of the TIBs alliance presence in the area. Please! No attacking of nobles! Building of castles is also restricted. If you have any questions about the TIBs, or, would like to join the alliance, please drop me a line.

The Quickstart Consortium offers an excellent range of services to new and established factions alike. For details on the services available in your area please contact Jerry Revell [xb8] or Jan Rodriguez [zr8].

"You've looked around; you've seen the rest; Now look no further! Here's the best! The man with pictures on his chest!"

TOWER GOING GOING GONE! If you'd like a tower in Yellowleaf, the time to act is now! We will sell this tower to the first faction that offers us 150 gold for it! Finished and ready to move in...act now before it's gone!

HEALING POTIONS!!!! Sick and tired of paying through the nose for that contract loyalty? Running out of noble points for oaths? What you need is to rule your nobles by fear! An 84 point terrorize, immediately followed by a healing potion, will keep your man in fearful loyalty for the entire game! Terrorize your nobles in complete safety with The Illustrated Man's healing potions, at a mere 150 gp apiece. Potions currently for sale: c108 d018 g666 (the potion of the beast)

The following items are also 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. 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.

If you hail from Yellowleaf, you need to visit

TO ALL INHABITANTS OF YELLOWLEAF AND ENVIRONS ---------------------------------------------

Please note that the Empire Claim Area is now extended from six provinces to eight provinces. All previous rules still apply.

Will the pentagram designer please draw something else, like squares, circles, or even a trapizoid. Thank you

Yellowleaf craves more opium.

-------------------------------- South & West CAMARIS Update -------------------------------- Monthly notice: every new visitor to either of our two fair isles should notify us in advance.

-- The Crazy Quilters [vn7]


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]

------------------------------------------------------------------------ MONTHLY NOTICE

The Brotherhood of Ormos claims the city of Avalon [ao0k] and all lands and resources inside the boundary of [bp05]-[bp08]-[br06] -[br09] inclusive, as its sole and lawful demense. Those wishing to visit Ormos are required to request a visa and await clearance before attempting to make landfall. All unauthorized visitors are unwelcome and looked upon with extreme prejudice. Captains needing to make landfall at Avalon for emergency repairs will not be molested, but are still required to contact me for a visa.

-- Pelinore Dragonslayer [p4s]

The Times they are a boring.

The Eagle Alliance is bunk!

When a banker jumps out of a window, jump after him -- that's where the money is. ;-)

Is is true that if you cross a hound with a rat you get a hat?

Crabs aren't Insects, they're Crustaceans you Toads! And another Thing, Hedgehogs aren't Rats! They're, um, Hedgehogs! We'll rip you apart Limb from Amphibious Limb! Don't bother looking for Us, We'll find You!

Whats this? Ship over weight? Hell, kick those workers overboard!

As we, the Rimmon Musketeers, have spread out across the land of Provinia, our progress has been hailed but those who love peace and order. We make friends and allies wherever we go, and our numbers swell. Praise be to Kygor, who prepares our way before us and leads us to a spot, choice above all others, where he will establish us and from whence we will go forth to bless all the lands. Peace to all who greet us with honesty and friendship. Our enmity and doom awaits all who would foul the land or oppress the people.

Heard on the streets in beautiful Harn:

Who are these weather guys down in Harn and what are they up to with that poor Roman boy?

They ,re just a bunch of cowards who built a tower in a safe haven, nothin to worry about.
