ASPERMONT, W.L.- Time is running out for her. Phase I is complete. Phase II is underway and finally Phase III that will show the world that everything she’s said concerning UTC, concerning her group, concerning Shrauger, concerning their innocence is a lie.
Also, PittacusJR ish my shon… He’s my shon… SHEAN CONNERY.
Irishkaiser - A common argument for placing exotic peoples in settings where they are not likely to be is that it gives little black kids or little eskimo kids someone to look up to and be their heroic role-model, because they can’t relate to “whitey” or something. I am firmly in the camp against, but no one hears more reasons other than historical accuracy or accusations of misuse of creative license. I’m a testament that it doesn’t matter what race the person is, their political camp, gender or social status, but as long as they do great deeds, I can guarantee you that people who really want someone to look up to, won’t look at a person’s race, but rather their background, relative to their achievement and even then, it doesn’t matter what background a person is from when you look up to them, you look up to them for their good or virtue that they display. I know I’m not from nobility, nor am I from the poor but when I hear, see or read the stories of sublime nobles, courageous proletariats or intelligent burghers such as Queen Boudica, Vo Nguyen Giap and Ibn Battuta, I don’t think I can’t do what they do just because they’re Celtic, Kinh or Berber, in fact, it gives me a drive to match what they do for my own people.
They’re all human and they all made their way through the tough times they’ve been through, for better or worse. I find it more hypocritical that the statement of replacing characters or superheroes from their original roles for the sole purpose of “diversity” or multiculturalism without anything to back it other than an agenda as nothing more than cop outs to make people feel good about themselves.
As some of you may have noticed, I model myself after a hodgepodge of archetypes and people, but the majority of them, I do admit are European compared to my Oriental or African heroes(No I did not model myself after those hippy Native Americans. North and South). But I can think of two reasons:
1) The Language - Colonial Powers were generally Europeans. Their language has spread all over the world, and you can’t find a continent, save for Antarctica, where they don’t speak some kind of Indo-European language in significant numbers. Of course, the stories and tales of the European peoples are generally more available in their languages and such their sources are more often used.
2) The Availability - Aside from the spread of their language, Western media and culture is also the most widely distributed and of course has the most variety of the same topic. The same story is retold again and again, and sometimes the same character or person is reinvented, depending on artistic license or interpretation of history.
In fact, when you think about it… You just make their race the important issue here. LOOK AT THIS GUY, HE’S BLACK. HE’S ONLY FOR BLACKS. LOOK AT THIS GUY. HE’S… SOMETHING… HE’S FOR THE SOMETHING!
You restrict the universal appeal and value of the character to just the race alone and that in itself is just as racist, if not more.

A long trade run conducted since before 12NN EST(Irishkaiser alone), in order to see how many people were online and to find the perfect time to conduct trade runs. Due to extensive reconnoitre, it was later discovered that members of Corsair intended to ambush. The UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company prepared to defeat them, but first prioritized selling the items and avoided Corsair until all merchandise was sold before marching to fight Corsair in Grimdale. We were low on direct scouts, but the leathers in the South are still reliably pro-UTC.
UTC members later massed and defeated the bulk of Corsair’s forces next to Grimdale and Night’s Watch as well under that dubious fucker who tried to play both sides called Nalacion(fuck that guy). That fucker later said to me “Just remember the favor when you want to give away your land, goy.” after he explicitly intended to disrupt our scouting activity and of course deny it when interrogated after one of his subordinates(Foxbuscus) said he was ordered to.
Any idiot can see that this dubious fucker is some insecure douche who lies to people to get what he wants. Unfortunately, the lot of MineZ are filled with people who are not only stupider, but blind themselves with fake ass platitudes that shoots themselves in the foot because they’re jealous or something(case in point: Dawn Brigade).
A Battle Honour was earned from this encounter for the efficient clock-work coordination and machinery that is the UTC. Some things were discovered though, to be noted. Squad Leader Jamwizard was noted to listen to “phantom” orders that nobody gave out and he believes they were said. Irishkaiser recommended he go see a professional or something because it’s been happening way too much, continuing, Irishkaiser also takes back his accusation of Jam stepping above his station on purpose because of his desire to seem perfect to everyone and instead is more concerned about why Jamwizard “hears voices in his head” telling him things nobody told him at all.
It was demonstrated when Jamwizard’s squad crossed a river before orders were given out and then he said “Yo, we crossed the river and we’re ready to attack. Where are you guys?”, to which he was corrected by Irishkaiser and Cyclone “Nobody gave the order to cross. Why did you cross when we explicitly told you to stay behind.”
Creepy ass shit yo.

Donations to the UTC by a bunch of fanboys. It was immediately given to charity.
No stories for glories.
Jamwizard2 was walking peacefully around Paluster and then was attacked by DevilsRespite and some other guys, who later taunted him. The local militia later counter-attacked and recaptured equivalent equipment in exchange, driving them from the Midlands.
Shrauger was noted to be bad at chasing but by this time has improved a bit. A bit.
Things are rolling again. Now if only I was free.
No students. That’s OK, I’m not actively looking for them until they come to me first.
