HEADLINES: DIRECTORY BRACES FROM POLICY CHANGE TO ACCOMMODATE TRADE RUN FINDINGS
ASPERMONT, WESTERLANDS- The last highly profitable trade run has sparked an idea in one of the Directors who may find it contradicting with the current albeit modified We Will Bury Them policy. The strategy which has recently started to gain support beyond the UTC after Shotbow removed the Ender Eye and brought it back again.
The strategy of the We Will Bury Them Policy, was a response to a suicide scare early in the year and certain angry Directory members opted to “trap” all the terrible people in MineZ and then make them play the game forever, using the UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company’s existence as the basis to make them stay. All whilst telling the good people to leave the game if they can or at the very least avoid the main Shotbow forum, reddit or community.
The strategy has had some success as certain people were reported to be more miserable than normal and stressing them out to make them “wallow in their own filth” for “choosing the wrong side”. That and other certain UTC operations which are not at liberty to discuss.
The Director during last trade run has encountered what he terms as “New Markets” or pockets of players yet exposed to MineZ’s power play politics. These players are all scattered, isolated and rather disconnected, giving Irishkaiser an idea.
This would in effect, for some, turn away from the We Will Bury Them Policy by making their stay in MineZ as enjoyable as we have each other instead of the standard “Nah, get the fuck outta here, man. This game’s fucked, but you cool. Just warning you, bro.”
EDITORIAL - The Belt and Road is How - When You Get An Idea
Irishkaiser - The last trade run with OneZedArmy has given me another one of those moments where you get an idea that you just feel like is gonna be the next big thing. I would also like to document this feeling because I’ve experienced it before but never particularly expounded on the subject. Feelings are at times hard to describe, but this scene from The Men Who Built America, featuring Andrew Carnegie discovering an idea is captured well. First you are simply minding your own business having a problem, or on my case, nothing at all. And then you notice something. You just stop. Everything just doesn’t matter as you try to process a once simple thought, trying to put things together.
But here’s the thing, at first, it seems “impossible”, or a flight of fancy. Too much work at the current state. But then, the more you think about it… The more you will come to the conclusion that “nothing is impossible” and that it could be done.
I felt it that day. And I also felt the choice because I’ve already planted my conviction to save all the good people and encourage certain others to stay in MineZ and fuck each other up. I remember the original reason and the ethics from which that stood and I also think I’m sacrificing that.
But the idea is still there, calling out to me, telling me that if I go on this path now, I could do it. But will I? Would I risk their mental health and lives to keep playing this game, knowing full well the contact they would make with certain undesirable non-people? I don’t know.
Maybe we can flirt with the idea. Maybe we can have both.

A highly profitable trade run that has left me with an imprint. Also, like a road trip Irishkaiser began pestering OneZedArmy about the birthday of Asturias, to which he just kept quiet because he knows where that conversation is going.
