Look Normally I don't much care who flames who or spin's what on the list.It usually just makes them look like a fool any way. But now you uninformed Lotek spin meister s are way out of line. So I will point out the fact's not opinions.
To Dragonmaster , duke,
We Musketeers Killed Alzoria? Really. Now we both know this is a blatant lie. The Newbi in question was killed by you! want proof?
Alzora [q869] ------------------------------------------------------- 1: Shaundakul  attacks us! 1: We lost! 1: Loss in battle cancels movement. 1: Alzora [q869] is wounded. Health is now 47. 1: Alzora [q869] is taken prisoner by Shaundaku. 2: *** Alzora has died ***
No doubt you can deny Shaundakula is not LOC be how do you explain the below sightings? You expect the masses to belive the LOC will kill a lone Nobel without question yet a Nobel in your lands with troops avoids an attack. Come now were not all Stupid!
>Shaundakul (1906) > @ The Moonlands (cv72) turn 116 day 30 > Troops =96 4/10, 6/12 > > @ The Moonlands (cw71) turn 115 day 30 > Troops =96 5/10, 5/12
Further you Knew or at least your lady leader knew he was without a doubt a neutral. Here is a excerpt from the player who owned Alzoria.
>There is a matter of discussing things of why LOTC >attacked an independent faction's noble. >While they have known for a longwhile that I am >independent,they(being Lady Eowlyn) knew this was >mine noble.I was also told a couple times in the past >from LoTC reprsentatives that they would talk/email >me before outright killing my nobles.This has changed >perhaps something to explore, if we think is worth it?
I sincerly hope my assosiate forgives me for printing an excerpt from a private e-mail, but I'm getting real tierd of you Lotek guys lying. If you wana war fine but grow up and do it like real men! Your lies don't add much to anyones enjoyment of this game.
Now for M.M Baenre aka Lord Bohr "Perhaps you have not set out to decive but are instead poorly informed" I hope. On the G2 list you say
>Let's also not forget that you've started this war >and you sole are responsable for the consequences.
Oh yes we Musketeers started this war by destroying the Harn alliance and then by aniallating the Inner Circle Alliace as well as having spies in severl of our northern neighbors cities. I guess when we Musketeers are ready to admit that the war will be over. "NOTE:The above paragraph is pure sarcasim"
Furhter I thought it was really cute how you were able to reason we Musketeers are responsible for the innocent newbis you guys just slaughtered around Rimmon.

The House of Raeomour is condones the terrible, unprovoked attack by the Crown on my Lords, Raeomour and Crom, who are now being held prisoner by the cowardly Csonka. The House of Raeomour has no alliance with any faction and is neutral. We deplore this unholy action and demand that they be released at once!

I have done all evil things imaginable, but each day I pray for forgiveness, and each night at sunset I pray for deliverance from the evils that stalk me. I pray, but I fear that no gods will listen.

Greetings Fellow Olympians
First off let me apologize to an old friend Eric the Seehawk. It looks like Peter founder of Di Bicci and Co. have planted the dagger deeper in my back than even Lord Cendage was able to. Once long ago I put my trust in Lord Cendage back when I was a newbi and was stabbed in the back. Later as a Rimmon Musketeer we allowed Gabriel to join our alliance even though his brother was an enemy and he stabbed all the Musketeers in the back. Now I am stabbed again by putting my trust in Peter.
True the Nation of Ergoth has continued to destabalize the Greyfell area by scaring their neighbors and building large armies. Once built they wanted dearly to use their force. It was aimed at the smallest player in the area,Captain Bob an independant player who was residing in a Musketeer owned castle on the northern coast of Provinia. Once the NOE forces arrived in Musketeer lands and began attacking nobels and garriosns we were forced to react.
As many have heard my flag Nobel Lord Foul was recently killed in combat by enemy forces. I personally was getting tiered of watching the war mongers take advantage of the peacfull Greyfell players and came up with what I thought was a grand plan to stabilize the area of Greyfell. my plan was quite simple I would leave my former alliance the Rimmon Musketeers and with some assistance form the Greyfell Privateers a peacefull trading alliance. I started by finding 5 factions who were interested in founding this new alliance. I knew I would not lead this alliance as my past is quite checkered so of the 5 founding factions I asked Peter of Di Bicci and company to consider heading the new alliance in light of his Olympia experiance.
My first concern was that all major alliances in the Greyfell area be contacted and informed of our plans before anything be made public. In hopes of getting the blessings of TIB,Syr-Antin and the Rimmon Musketeers so as to make as few political waves as possable. I wanted to stay in the background and considering Peter claimed to have excellent dealings with Syr-Antin and TIB due to long time Di Bicci trading assets. So I said alright Peter the ball is in your court go for it. Imagine my utter surprise to hear all I have worked for in the past month was falling around be because Peter tried to pressure other players in the area. "okay Lord Cendage you can stop laughing and get off the floor now" I know you for one are enjoying the heck out of this. My only solice is in knowing you didn't enginere it.
This is an outrage! I am posting this in the newsletter before more good names are sullied. The day after this is posted myself and the remaining 4 Privateer founders will vote to expell Peter and most likly hunt him down and destroy hid backstabbing #@%*! You had better start running while you can Peter!
To all who were presssured by Peter's underhanded ways please find it in yourselves to forgive me for my stupidity in trusting someone I apperantly didn't know well enough. After the vote to expell Peter I want to call the council of The Greyfell Privateers to vote on my expulation from the alliance due to my blatent stupidity.

DIE YOU SCUM!
I by the recent trash talk aimed at King Oleg see that Gabriel has kept his promise to make an appearance in the newsletter with his new faction.I noticed the 4 digit ID, I guess you did a lateral faction transfer. Hmmmm...
FYI: Most of us enjoy it more when you pretend to be JON "at least your JON manifestation has a little class unlike your GABRIEL manifestation".
It looks like a nice day for flying.
Oh what a tangled web we weave, When first we practice to decieve, But if we practice quite a while, How vastly we improve our style. - ee cummings
Well, most of us improve our style. For some, it's hopeless.

Pig Foul will make a nice roast !!
It's not Muskateers, dear Oleg. I think it's derived from the word : musket. But hey, that's only my opinion :)) Could be 'Musk-and-Tears' also.
The most important thing is to not make enemies. Shush! That's a secret! No one else knows.
The Lord's men are deserting them in droves!
First the esteemed Sherrif of Rhonius, Delphini Woodguard defects to PLATO with half the Lords Camarian Army. "Just a business deal" he was heard to utter.
Then several Bruces defected in the north due to the overwhelming homophobia amongst the Lords (They prefer their sexual partners to be of the opposite gender just as long as they are dead)
A captured dwarf with an unpronouncable name begged to join the Brotherhood of the Red God claiming he only joined the Lords out of fear of what they would do to him and his eight brothers if he didn't. He had been subjected to hideous tortures to ensure his loyalty including having to listen to Lady Eowyn sing and being locked in a room with Artemis Enteri and having him recite his self penned masterwork, The Siege of Greton - an epic poem in four volumes.
Lady Eowyn recently flew into a rage and ordered several of her senior commanders captured becuase they dared to question the wisdom of her announcement that she would sing the Lords national anthem before the upcoming battle to lift the men's spirits.
This confirms rumours circulating for some time that the senior Lords keep most of their nobles in line through torture, intimidation and institutionalised brainwashing. With so many necromancers amongst them, did we expect anything else
