    As you might have seen in the foreign office their has been a discussion about starting a team newspaper like the ones in the civ3 mtdg so we can show the other teams why aloha is the best. Once we start publishing everyone is welcome to contribute stories or story ideas. I think we should aim for an issue every 15 to 20 turns. So stay tuned for more details, i'm hoping to rope ybbor in to do some artwork as mine is not so great.

    Here's what I'm thinking. Let me know of anything you want to change, and whether you want the "A" to be typed or a pineapple (or if there's another letter you want to replace with a pinneapple)

    Ok well i've managed to do a bit of work on it and this is what i've done so far. I would need to drop some pictures in for the article but tell what you think so far.

    Also there is room for other stories or a comic strip or many something else entirely, everyone is welcome to contribute:)

    Here is one i found and slightly altered to make it game relevant What does everyone think


    Also robboo you said you might have an article to contribute?
    I hope its a short one because there aint much room left.

    Also i did some screenshots of pigs and rice for the first article, however i used screenies from the MTDG pitboss game. Hopefully the other teams notice the rails in the shots and think i'm full of it;)

    my article fix it and publish it... dont remove the "notes to self". Think of thsi as a journal.

    Adventures in scouting...

    We were sent along to catalog teh findings of our scouts adn to look for useful resources that our smart gusy may figure out how to use later on.

    A few days into our journy we came upon a tribal village. The natives were eating something they called "fsha". They showed us a place where the "fsha" were jumping from the water and were in great abundance. We will call the animal fish...because fsha just has too many constonents in a row.

    (note to self...Dont come back to this village...the last thing I need is to find out the tribal chief's daughter had a kid that looks like me. I just coudlnt help it...it was th first women we have seen in days.)

    We continued our journies and started to run low on food. One of the tribal people told us to watch the animals for clues on what was good to eat. We stayed close to the sea since we had hoped to find more of the fish. We saw a great many birds pickign amongst the rocky shore. They were cracking open rocks that had a inside material that looked like nose liquid. One of our group (Lam) decided to eat one of these rock creatures and declared it edible. He even cooked it over a fire to smoke it much like the fish. We had not named the animal when Lam said we should call it Sealam. I wrote it in the official journal as "clam" since I was trying to save the limited supply f bark that I had to write on. This Lam says woudl be a good spot of another city...however after eating the nose liquid creature( also takes like nose liquid) I think only those with very little taste buds or the weak minded who we coudl fool into thinking these were desireable would want to live here.

    Thats all Robi....you get the idea. Next issue we find ice and cows

    Here is the Final Draft:D

    Sorry robboo, your journal will be a two-parter:)

    GA and RM are free to look at it, but i have made sure there is no inadvertant spoiler info as no other teams are mentioned.

    Anyway unless there is strong objections it will go on the main forum when the next turn is played
