"Ahoy matey! Could you spare some tea?" I querried the ships pulling up rapidly alongside.

"Not bloody likely," said my faithfull sidekick Ghaznavi. "They've no manners. You've always said so."

"Ah faithful Ghaznavi! You are here at the end, though you be an idiot if there ever was one. Nonetheless, stand by me now, & think not of the enemy's numbers, but of your loyalty to the Creepy Crawlers."

"And men, pikemen & archers, stand you ready to make good your oaths of fealty to me, & if indeed death hath come to claim its ghastly prize, as may very well be, make him pay with oceans of Doomguard blood! May we reek here such a slaughter that the devil himself will blanche at it!"

"Huzzah!" cried the men, & grimly we set about the battle.

For verily, at the dawn of this month I do battle against fearful odds, caught by the terrible Doomguard armada amassing just outside Trullion. And the sharks circle the boat, awaiting their ghoulish meal.

Free Provinia!

I am, your friend, Captain Arrr

D00dez whats your defenition of newbies? Anyone whos played less than 10 turns? 20 turns? What?

We the elders of Olympia should come up with a useful defenition of newbie-ness if we mean to protect them from the lower lifeforms with low morals and even lower standards of sportsmanship.

A hey and a shout-out to F. Theodorsen - where's your crew, man?

Contact Secret Squirrel [t594]. Do it now!


The rule of TIB will soon be over. The TIB Liberation Army also known as TIBLA is ready to vanquish TIB from this world. Their blood will flow as rivers from the mountains and mix with the seas.


One down, one to go. For our next trick, we will burn all the wood on the beach.

Those who lack courage are already dead.

So The Icy Black Powerhouse will not be blindly following the Blood-thirsty EAGLE juggernaught. This is a good show of balls on all TIB players.

Oleg a King?

I hope life isn't a big joke, because Egraal doesn't get it.

"Lookee, lookee, Lookee!!!" Don't you wish you knew what I'm so excited about.

EA to Rule the World:

EA would have you think they are the benevolent protector of Olympian life, but they are just as much scoundrel as PLATO. They hide behind their 'secrecy' and play politics with member factions.

PLATO and the Bandits may be bad, but at least you know they are the bad guys. EA hides in the diplomatic talks while hurling catapults on enemy shores. Where is the honor in that? They let PLATO take out Fox and New Empire because they didn't like him. Then they stepped in after the war to stop the spread of the war onto their own lands. In the deal, they are rid of an internal problem (New Empire), cast PLATO as the new AOO, and gain support for their world domination plans.

Now they play "nice doggie" with the Bandits and invade under independent banners.


I live.
