ASPERMONT, W.L.- The Directory inquired whether to raise a new Army or expand the role of the Army of Observation(the current standing forces of the UTC) to undertake a major operation in the coming weeks. Whether or not the Army of Observation will be used will depend on whether Pittacus will go through with the negotiations, who for some strange reason, keeps going back and forth even though I’m not even talking to her anymore and for some strange reason… Keeps obsessing about my looks or something especially when it’s not relevant.
If the Army of Observation will be given the excuse to resume hostilities, a new Army will be raised for the operation. If not and Pittacus goes through with the deal, the Army of Observation will have its staff reshuffled to fit the needs of its operation and carry on with a future endeavor.
Irishkaiser - When a society gets larger and larger, over time it starts to divide its workload into specialized areas. Back then, in my heyday, I always led from the front and directed missions and operations to the smallest minute detail. Over time, the clan became larger and even I find it weird and clunky in the field to control an entire Corps and command my own personal squad with a combat role assigned to me.
On an administrative level, the clan has flourished because it has and I still can boast the best and finest body of officers in Shotbow - a better group of men does not exist anywhere. I am fortunate to have served with each and everyone of them and our differences make us strong when we have one direction. Of course, I and the original members not only taught my officers strategies, organization and tactics, but fostered their independent initiatives and imaginations as well by giving them the freedom to flourish and shine on their own accord.
To do this, over time, I had to step back more and more and eventually allowing certain individuals to take over and letting them lead depending on their level of capability, only reining them in when they’ve stepped beyond their directives and or below their expectations. When I came to command however and be given assigned roles(myself assigned by myself) I’ve come to realize how clunky and slow we’ve operated. Three squads a company is already unwieldy, what more so if it’s three companies a corps, and I have my own personal squad to command.
I’ve also dealt with the logistical strain of moving equipment and supplies, planning and processing intelligence. Plus, the cultural and physical contributions such as writing the Empire, managing our infrastructure, creating art works, documenting on our wikia. Doing all at once leads to a lot of backlogging and clunky, slow responses. I’ve come to realize that maybe I’ve become too big for my own men and that over time, I will lose the opportunity to lead from the front again and must be content with directing the boots on the ground in the rear.

The trade run led by Irishkaiser encountered relatively no resistance but almost no newspawns save for a couple. Once again, geared bandits were encountered in the South. Diamond Sword + Iron Armor types. However, due to the low population only one was encountered. He was initially ignored by the UTC until he became a danger to customers in the area. He managed to get away.
Once again, these geared bandits in the South were spotted, making one wonder where the hell do they get the gear from. Multiple explanations are available and maybe there is no one answer, however the result is still the same and still needs to be investigated as to why there are now end-game players in the South in higher frequency.
UTC updates its drill server and shit and beta tests and stuff. Everyone menstruates.
Lieutenant_Joe reversed his peaceful stance today, removing one of the Doves' key members. Lieutenant_Joe being on board enhanced the determination of the Army of Observation.
Once again a couple of premiums were spotted in Frostbain where it was said that Shrauger took his revolutionary white man revenge against his bullies. It was reported that he was singing Le Chant du Depart while they killed multiple premiums within three days. The last day, a premium surrendered his iron armor and food to Shrauger who cried “VIVE L'EMPEREUR” at his victory. A relieving gold later came to free his premium brother, but was met with the Armed Fist of the People or some shit, I don’t know.
Will be inspired and based on the Niehorster Dialect.
