ASPERMONT, W.L.- The UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company has approved a plan to send a military mission to a Secret Ally. Details are classified but the Directory must keep its word and protect their friends or else who would trust us ever again? It’s a volunteer mission as well, so PM me if you’re interested. Currently those commissioned Army of Observation are preferred because we’re on a war footing but at the same time we have no one to fight and de-mobilization and decommissioning takes time.
Irishkaiser - The previous conflagration has thrown UTC into the vortex of Shotbow politics, but we have kept a careful tread and only offered promises in return. We must not mince words for we have binded ourselves with almost every group in Shotbow. The consequences of our honor being that future conflicts may come out of our rushed alliances over issues we have no vested interest in or even stake.
The Company since 2013, has served as MineZ’s protector because of its unique position in the community: our armed neutrality and inherent non-allegiance to any other group. We had a vested interest in keeping all of MineZ’s community together because of economic and security reasons, even though we frequently butted heads with all of them. By 2015-2016, we have fully embraced this role and defended not just the people in the South, but the bandits in the North, the Healers in the West and the Dungeoneers in the East. We have always served as a counter-balance to any one group that may try to fuck with the others and there are many times when other groups fucked with us as well. Whether they came at us alone, or came at us in alliances, we always fought alone and we beat them all.
Never in our history have we received such an amount of help in return. It was heartwarming to hear some of them say they will help us as a form of thank you for helping them out during the Cassmich Controversy, their own betrayals and stuff, etc. But some of the others were also filled with their own political ambitions or petty hatred of one player, such as srslyRigby’s. His own enemies form a significant part of “we have a common enemy” part of the Coalition and the UTC wouldn’t usually feel comfortable with pursuing something so petty, but pursued we did out of military necessity.
This huge spy network built up in such a short amount of time has also given us info on admins, clans and individuals. We know which clans are stable, which clans are going to die and which clans are divided. With this information comes responsibility and opportunity. We are in a position like no other clan before ever has… Whether this is a blessing or a curse is yet to be seen.
This system of promises we’ve given have resulted in us losing the mantle of MineZ’s protector because now we’re bound to individuals and entire groups. So I ask you, UTC… Do we take a step forward and become WORLD POLICE LIKE AMERICA AND MEDDLE WITH OTHER PEOPLE’S AFFAIRS… Or do we take a step back and go back to our isolationism? A third option, which is always my favorite option is to sit and wait how it develops… I prefer the third option personally, what do you prefer?

A very good trade run, selling off the infinity bows captured from RussianCows. No major encounters were reported.
ROUND I, Devil’s Castle:
Victory for Derussiander’s (Attacking) team
Derussiander’s Team stormed the Castle initially, Pi’s Team held position atop a tower on the southern segment of the castle. Derussiander and Meme were tracked unknowingly to the south east tower. From this, Pi’s team conducted a short-lived raid on it which resulted in a net loss of resources, though it pushed Meme and Derussiander out of the position. Derussiander’s team went into hiding within the castle, so Pi’s squad took the South East Tower until Derussiander’s team attempted to push it, being repelled by some light arrow fire. After this fire, FlyingSquid took position at the top as a distraction while Pi and Silver moved through the keep to flank them, though Meme called it out earlier than expected, so the element of surprise was lost. From this, Derussiander’s team charged the tower, Meme was pushed out of the tower alongside FlyingSquid. Meme knocked Silver off the external wall leaving Meme in a 1 versus 1 with Flying Squid and Derussiander in a 1 verus 1 with Pi. Through general skill of both sides, Flying was killed by Meme, Silver regrouped with Pi to take out Derussiander and was successful though Derussiander went Allah Akbar and grenaded himself and Pi. Silver was left in a 1v1 with Meme and lost.
ROUND II, Devil’s Castle:
Victory for Pi’s (attacking) team
Pi’s squad pushed the castle in a quick search and destroy of the North side of the Castle. They then moved to the north side at which point Derussiander’s squad was encountered trapped in the Courtyard. Through being surrounded, lack of cover and constant arrow and grenade volleys, they eventually died due to poor positioning. ROUND III, FFA at Stillwater Motte Meme got a clean sweep of everyone else, due to lack of fighting by attrition, Meme had a lot of resources to use in fighting. ROUND IV, McIovinville Victory for Derussiander’s team(Derussiander and Flying Squad)
Meme was a lone wolf. Pi and Silver engaged him after seeing him by the river. He was chased up a hill. Meme eventually was pushed to the lower position of the Hill and was finished off. Derussiander’s team attempted to search for them after, but was unable to track Pi’s team down. They eventually established an ambush in a house which worked after some searching by Pi’s squad. This put Pi in a position where many of his splashes were consumed due to damage. Some fighting occured and Flying was split up from Derussiander, though Pi’s squad wasn’t concentrated as a single force attacking one guy so, they recovered from it. Pi’s team retreated to a position that offered more defensive strategy to be used. Derussiander’s team pushed the bridge and encountered Pi’s team and engaged in a swift battle. Pi was killed by Derussiander though Derussiander was left on 1 heart due to both sides not splashing. Silver was quickly picked off by Meme and Derussiander in some effective Battle Buddy combat.
This is good, I like this. But I need to come up with new Colours and a new wiki page.
Provided enough infinity bows to sell for the next couple of trade runs.
These guys just don’t seem to get the message. Perhaps we’ll send a big one to show we mean our threats of retaliation.
Results may come in sometime soon.
1) Trade Run completed. SOP.
2) Finish the Manual(order to the author)
3) Placate the people and their desire for battle.
