The Confederation is pleased to announce that we have signed a Non Agression Pact with the Greyfell Lords. They have proven themselves to be a stabilizing influence in the Greyfell region, and we welcome further cooperation between our alliances.

In need of more troops or a second flank? How about an armed escort through hostile wilderness or dangerous waters? Well then, you're on your own from now on!!!! Effective Immediately, the BoRG have disbandedand are going their separate ways, and most of us are leaving Oly. Anyand all contracts we currently have are now Null and Void, and we are obviously accepting no more new ones. If you have any questions,
feel free to contact us at
for the next week. We here at the BoRG wish EVERYONE all the best, and we hope to see many of you in strange new lands in the not so distant future.
May the Red God smile upon you.

To All Factions: The continent of Camaris is an active war zone. Any noble there is liable to attack without warning.
In particular, any noble not present at the express invitation of the Foriegn Minister of the Crimson Dragons is considered by the Crimson Dragons to be a hostile noble, and will be attacked without warning. Express invitation means that he will say, "Come to this place and do this thing now." All offers to join the Crimson Dragons or to attack our supposed enemies are rejected unless specifically approved by our Foriegn Minister. If he doesn't say Yes, then he probably means No.
It is not our desire to attack neutral or "newbie" factions, we consider that a waste of valuable noble-days, but we are at war (which we also consider a waste of vaulable noble-days), despite our desires to the contrary, and as such we will fanatically defend the integrity of our claimed lands. We regard any entry to Camaris by any means as an invasion.
Uninvited guests will be regretfully hunted down and killed.
I hope the preceding is clear and to the point, and I regret the need to post this so often. *****
Speaking for the Crimson Dragon Ministry of Internal Security,

Greetings Fellow Olympians!
I know the rumors of a new alliance have been out there and many were not sure if it was here-say or truth. I am happy to banish the clouds of doubt and announce and make official the creation of a new alliance
-The Greyfell Lords-
Our domains include the Syr-Antin, Farnham's Freehold and lands formerly controlled by the Nation of Ergoth. We are proud to be joining the Peaceful Alliances already operating the North Western area of Provinia in particular and the the Northern Hemisphere of Olympia in general.
We enjoy good if not excellent relations with all Northern Alliances as a result of which we have pursued and attained peaceful treaties with the following.
1) A Non-Aggression Treaty with the proven peace loving and honest Confederation.
2) A mutual Defense Treaty with the Rimmon Musketeers which excludesthe ongoing war between Rimmon and the Lords Of The Crown.
PEACE THROUGH STRENGTH is the code we live by. We realize many will fear that which they don't understand or that which is shrouded in darkness. In that vein we embrace openness as our guiding principle and invite all and sundry to drop us a line or pay us a visit.
1) All our lands are open to travelers and caravans both old and new.
2) Construction is permitted without request "except castles"
3) We levy no taxes or tariffs.
4) We do not restrict recourse collection in any way!
5) Our emissary the "Lord Chancellor" will be ready to answer all of your questions, if any.
The major attribute of our regency style of government is opennes and mutual cooperation. Thus we intend to maintain peace and stability in the greater Greyfell area.
All of those who wish to know more are invited to visit our alliance charter at http://expage.com/page/greylords.
Soon we shalll also announce the opening of the Greyfell Lords web site for your pleasure and understanding.
Finally we are now actively recruiting . Alliance membership is open to all peaceful nobles who agree to
live by our alliance Charter and codes. Present members include the legitimate rulers of Syr-Antin, Farnham's Freehold, former NoE factions, former Soutmarche factions , 1 former Rimmon Musketeer as well as a number of former independents.
Petition for membership now and begin your trek to a bright and promising Future.
- Cosimo I, Duke of Greyfell - Adam, the crystal blue Mage, Lord Counselor - Ebony Knight, Lord Chancelor

By the campfire the swordmen sat honeing their blades They talked of the good ole days of war and slaughter. Some wanted to return to the days of The Blood baths. They spoke of a city, but never called it by name. But they all agreed, soon, very soon.
I suspect it's about to get exciting
