The Fanatical An insane voice in a reasonable World Volume 3 October 18, 400 B.C. Fanatica encounters strange peoples Recently, near the city of Dellham, a strange group of poeples riding on horseback were seen. Ambassadors were sent from the city to greet the strange peoples. At once, they requested a session with Queen Jayne. Details of this meeting are unknown, though rumor has it Fanatican funds were used to placate these peoples and avoid war. Little is known about these horsemen. They called themselves 'Vikings.' We have proof of existance of such peoples, as a recent report from world travelers described a great lighthouse built by these peoples. They appear to be barbaric peoples, not knowing of the doughnut. In fact, upon an initail offering of doughnuts as a gift, they rejected the generous gift. Recent polls show that the Vikings are looked down upon this lack of the doughnut. In related news in this subject, a strike force has been assembled to destroy any Viking settlement in Fanatica. Trade discovered In science news, the art of trade was discovered by Fanatican scholars. Since that discovery, cities across the kingdom began production of caravans, to carry their excess goods to other cities. It is expected that these new 'trade routes' will garner lots of income, and scientific research for Fanatica. It has also been discovered that the delivery of these goods may be able to help the constuction of great momuments. ============ That's it for this (rather short) edition.
