FROSTBAIN, M.L.- Gunpowder rations were distributed after the last trade run as Company Members and Regimentals alike were availed of one gunpowder piece. Company Members were also given glowstone dust to boost the mount of splash potions. The system is not yet set, but it is generally agreed upon that one gunpowder per week was suitable. Who gets gunpowder and glowstone is still up for debate, but the regimentals used the powder and splashes well during the Second Blockade of Bazel.
Irishkaiser - A strong centralized authoritarian government requires strong, capable individuals to make it work, but a republic or a democracy requires active participation from the people to work. For if people do not take part in their country’s government, the republic becomes a failure. The danger of an active people however was forewarned by Alexis de Toqueville who said that democracy only works until people realize they can vote in the benefits of the public treasury and then they feed themselves of privileges and benefits, turning petty material goods into “rights” and generally make decadence an agenda.
The fine balances of both must be work together to keep the other in check. For strong central rulers can bring the people back into a disciplined line and the people can bring their leader in check from needless aggression or abuse of power. This is what the American Founding Fathers termed as the “more perfect union”, the state and the central government all making sure that not one tramples upon the rights of others. Whether or not the United States has achieved the more perfect union is up to debate, but the lessons can be applied to us as well. Everyone here has the right to a voice or an opinion that can be displayed, discussed and or debated.

Trade Run that started early. Company forces consisting of Kruziikaazjun, Vergath, FinnMNMiner, Mr.Pi, Icaruis, Lieutenant_Joe and SylverTheSylveon. The Trade Run started at Yawpton then to Portsmouth where the Company sold out. Immediately after, the UTC began refitting their equipment to enact a second blockade in Bazel soonafter.
Dentril’s Terror(chestplate) or whatever is called was also tested, but nobody really hit the person wearing it. It was considered terrifying true to its name and because of the noise it makes coupled with the effects, can be a serious morale shock to opponents.
The Company however is leaning towards Pluvia’s Chestplate rather than Dentril’s as standard equipment.
Company forces blockaded Bazel but somehow allowed FOUR PEOPLE TO ESCAPE. Six premiums were killed however. Premiums counter-attacked from the North in chain and iron but were fought off, with one killed and one running away due to the fact that Company forces depleted all sugars when they came.
At least there’s a good experience in running and chasing fights.
Send us your thoughts and comments as to who gets gunpowder and glowstone. We’ve already agreed once per week per individual is sufficient, but not everything is set in stone.
He still shitposts anyway.
Most of the plugins are good, now just flashbang(which is barely available) and of course kits are the only things left.
Icaruis makes enemies and then Irishkaiser comes in to save the day and protect the Imperial Citizens. Coupled with threats. Good job, Icaruis. Other than that, just normal action being seen. Nothing too stressful like last week where resources were exhausted.
Please tell us what you think is the best for the battlefields we find ourselves in.
1) Trade Run completed. SOP
