    Researches announce mysticism
    After years and years of research, our nation's chief priests and prophets have announced the discovery of an art they have dubbed 'mysticism.' When asked what he expected this new science to do, the chief prophet said, "We believe that this research will lead to a greater connection between ourselves and our gods, especially the Great Doughnut God." In addition to this wonderful new way of communication, our priest have drawn up plans for a great structure called an 'Oracle,' which would increase the calming powers tmeples hold over people.

    Elvises fired, sent to sea
    After a few hundred year stint in Regia Civitas, a group of Elvis impersonators where sent from city night clubs and casinos to work in the bay north of Regia Civitas.
    One of the Elvises (or is it Elvi?) said something that was not understood by the interviewer, though he said he could make out the words fried, greet, and seam.

    Settlers depart from Renaux
    Brave citizens from the northern city of Renaux set off from that city to found a new one at the mouth of the Octavia River, a place dubbed Octavia's Point.
    When asked why they left Renaux, one of the citizens was quoted as saying, "We are doing this for the benefit of the Kingdom. We know that one day, our hardships will pay off, and that our new city will become an important one to the our glorious nation!" Another settler said, "We go to these lands for we have heard that the fields surround that land are full of that glorious food, the doughnut."
    We have aslo recently recieved word that the settlers have reached their destination, and have already begun prepartions to begin the constrution of the town.

    ================

    2 weeks, 2 volumes. As always, comments welcome. Also, SteveP submitted an artile earlier about the hiring of the Elvis, though at press time, it was out of date.

    I agree, it would be nice if someone else did contribute, but so far SteveP has been the only one, and I published later, making his out of date.

    Perhaps you could have posted his article anyway. If it was concerning events that happened between when the first issue and second issue was published, then it was not out of date, and people may be interested to see it.

    Nice news! I can't wait to read the next one, covering our encounter with the Viking Horse! I was surprised by one thing. All the coverage of doughnuts, and my own doughnut encounter wasn't mentioned! Btw, couldn't anyone just post an article here, in this thread? We want to hear from SteveP ... I smell censorship . . .

    I would suggest that all submissions are sent to the editor for review. This will ensure that any news story is not covered by mutiple articles.
    Ummm!

    If you want to add your voice, feel free to post in the newspaper's thread! It's not my place to report only the news I wish to.
