A Novel Movement Tactic Discovered

I've come into possession of some garrison reports from turn 108 that reveal an unusual movement feature I think should be general knowledge. Our featured performer is the famed Oleg the Loudmouth, a king among nobles.

Mountain [dz66], mountain, in Camaris, civ-1 ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 0: Garrison [3244], garrison, with ten peasants guards Mountain [dz66]. 15: Oleg the Loudmouth [9079], king, with two winged horses, 200 pikemen, 15: ten catapults, 400 crossbowmen, arrived from the east.

Forest [dz67], forest, in Camaris, civ-1 ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 0: Garrison [6856], garrison, with 15 peasants, five workers guards 0: Forest [dz67]. 11: Oleg the Loudmouth [9079], king, with two winged horses, 200 pikemen, 11: ten catapults, 400 crossbowmen, arrived from the east. 17: It has begun to rain.

A very impressive display that. I didn't write Oleg's orders, so you'll have to ask the person who did for the details. I would advise everyone to consider the implications of this display very carefully.

We remain...

-- Angels in Shadow [en9]

To the coward who didn't have to guts to put up his name in the feeble attempt to slander my name, the reason I left my army was because our horses where tired of carrying around all that precious mithril and the 30000 gold we took from poor dead Aonghus Og.

And I dare you to do the same with us, you lead a stack into battle against a castle and then you move through our garrisons without troops. We will decree hostile. You'd be dead in a second That's one thing you will regret later !!

And by the way, if you really want to do something useful please stop pressing these kinds of reports. If you want to know about me or what I'll be doing, just ask.

-- Artemis Entreri [5339]

Just a reminder that the Brotherhood of the Red God is harrassing the Lord's shipping and naval troop movements in the Camaris Straits. All neutral ships in the waters between Camaris and Provinia east of the 50 longtitude line running through Harn should contact us so you are not caught up in this conflict. Any ships in these waters that have not contacted us will be considered hostile till we have determined otherwise.

We currently have Brothers in the Drassa region with little to do. We are currently looking for contracts of any sort (training, recruiting, raiding, patrol duty, etc) in this area or any of the nearby islands. We have ship transport and don;t mind travelling.

Please visit our web site at www.geocities.com/TimesSquare/1843/borg.html or contact us at asgardian@bigfoot.com

May the Red God smile upon you. The Herald of the Brotherhood of the Red God

Message from the Lords

I would like to ask all mercenaries to please stop contacting us. We have no need for your 'contracts' and we are not willing pay someone to fight our wars. Every alliance we are at war with is asking for mercenaries so please contact them, the downside is that you will probably meet us on the battlefield then.

Mercenaries Wanted!

Are there any factions out there interested in taking on some mercenary work? I am looking for a few (well, a lot actually) good men to do some raiding, shipping disruption, undercover work, magical combat, and information gathering. I can afford to pay handsomely, and guarantee excitement, glory, and the chance to make enemies for--what may end up being a short but satisfying-- life! Please contact me through the mystical messaging service if you are interested.

Note: I had several takers, all of whom have by now received their first payment and are embarking on their assigned missions. However, I have unlimited cash, and lots of work, so keep those cards and letters coming!

As I have no idea at all what to say this month, the sparrow will remain silent this time... Oh, except for: "I can't stand the name Bruce any longer !!!" Until next month my feathery friends, The Sparrow

Well, that's the game.

Fifteen Lords ships went a sailing on the ocean blue Five beached in a Camarian swamp And then there were ten

Ten Lords ships went a sailing on the ocean blue One encountered Dragons at Sea And then there were nine

Nine Lords ships went a sailing on the ocean blue ......

Did the Maltar fix arrive in time?

Oh Yes!! Anus. Opps I mean Reinis, You guy's are just plain ol whipping our butts. Your just devastating us. We are no match for your superior tactics and intellect. But I guess we're just to dumb to give up. Oh I would hate to be us. And if you believe that I have a little mountain to sell you.

Did it work?

Don't fear me, nor my armies marching outside your castle. I can attack you and possably hurt you but no matter how hard I may try I can not wipe out all you have done in this world. But beware there is one who can and who will when the time is right. Let he who hath understanding rekon the number of the beast for it is a human number. It is Y2K...Be afraid be very afraid.

Finally, the first kegs of Scotch are made. Now for the aging. They should be ready in a mere 21 years.

Well look at all this gold. I wonder how fast I can spend it.

I don't think Pig Foul will make a nice roast. Why you say ! Well, he really stinks !

I wonder how Maltar can keep his members in check, their nobles are being slaughtered, their castles are being razed, probably because he doesn't tell the rest of the world how bad things are going for the Musketeers. Maybe that is the reason he suddenly starts asking for newbie help.

Poofter says: "NO BRUCES!"

Pig Foul will make a nice roast !!!

There's nothing more pleasing than taking the moral high ground while shafting a real villian. It's nice to be a hero, and I'd like to thank my enemies for the opportunity to be so. Guys, I could never have done it without you.
