    Very funny guys. Enjoyed it a lot. Looking forward to future dispatches. Nice job on the elite farming but the press exaggerates everything!

    You guys are good. BTW the account I heard was that Raar guy was rumored to have been killed by some indian guy on a horse. The guy had sugar and jelly on his face or something like that. Interesting how rumors get started, eh? :D

    He is the main writer, as his spoiler says so, but we do give him so minor requests for some changes.

    I would like to place the following personal ad in your next edition:

    Dinsog, the package has arrived though it is not quite as large as we expected. The color is all wrong, too.

    I wish to place an advertisement in your fine publication:

    Quality Antiques for Sale - Intrepid explorers with quick feet and large swords wish to market artifacts from ruined city. Scimitars, pantaloons, and writings from an almost extinct civilization. Be at the market on Meleetday. These items are for the true afficionado of lost civs.

    I was the Admirals water boy, and in between peeling grapes for him I saw multiple dig sites.

    There should be some great stuff that comes out of these archaeological sites.

    @irongold, the pantloons appear to be sized for, shall we say, gentlemen with teeny tiny swords

    We will be anouncing many big and wonderous things in the next edition ... it will be released as soon as RL issues have been attended to by the chief editor and his staff.
