Yes folks, that's right - we, the Lords of the Crown have become disenchanted with our situation as such we are breaking up the alliance.

We have had some great tussles and enjoyed the last few years but the challenge is gone - warring has become the sluggish lumbering of behemoth armies since we explored all the possible tactics and our foes their equivalent defences.

Most of our members are quitting and the remainders are becoming independent factions or joining new alliances. We shall be completely withdrawing from our lands on Provinia over the next several turns and there is an immediate ceasing of the offensive against Rimmon. Prisoners will be released this turn. All our spies will be withdrawing from Rimmon lands immediately.

I must emphasise this is also a shock for myself and I cannot fully detail where all remaining Lords are going or what they are doing since I have not yet grasped it all myself.

We ask all parties particularly Rimmon Musketeers to allow us to reorganise our resources among the remaining members and withdraw from Provinia over the next 10 turns or so. We consider the war with Rimmon at an end. They have no one fight but retreating nobles. We ask for no further garrison or nobles attacks and the equivalent immediate withdrawal of all stacks (e.g. Odysseus, Meglok, Scorn!) until at least turn 188.

Unfortunately this all came so suddenly yesterday that I have had no opportunity to personally get in touch with the Rimmon leaders before today, I welcome and encourage their response and co-operation to facilitate this break up with no further losses on either side.

Though of course we cannot dictate what happens to LotC lands we would like to see this are given over to younger factions as a free area to develop without the constraints or regulations of an alliance. As such those castles of our which cannot be so handed over will indeed be razed asap. We hope to leave this legacy of freedom for those who come after us.

So long and thanks for all the punch-ups, it's been great fun! I shall be around for a little while yet, I hope we meet again, though you may not recognise me! I hope this does not spoil the fun for Rimmon - what WILL you do now?

A retired Lord of the Crown. Greyed & grizzled but happy for the memories.

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,
