HEADLINES: DIRECTOR PLANS TO IMPLEMENT VISA SYSTEM FOR PET PROJECT
ASPERMONT, WESTERLANDS- Irishkaiser plans to implement a “visa” like system to help facilitate his pet project of establishing “new markets” in MineZ. This visa system will be completely separate from the Imperial Citizen system and therefore does not give Company Members or Regimentals privileges over them.
One has to apply for a “visa” to be able to participate in the New Markets being built under the auspices of the 1st Regiment “Westerlands”, who will also function as Visa Officers and deciding who gets to have one or not.
Requirements will be kept a secret as each Visa Officer will review anyone who wants to participate.
EDITORIAL - INTERNATIONAL LOOPHOLES
Irishkaiser - A lot of people remember the movie Lord of War and particularly this scene that helped spread the truth about international arms sales loopholes that still pervade the modern trade.
In the scene, Jack Valentine of Interpol acknowledges the loophole - that of shipping the vehicle and weapons separately to different clients at different addresses(but who can say where they will end up for sure?) - is valid but threatens Yuri that he may keep doing it but it’s obviously so ridiculous that the United Nations will “close it any Goddamn day”.
Yuri counters by saying “But it’s not closed.” and what makes this scene age well up to today is this: that certain loophole IS STILL NOT CLOSED UP TO THIS DAY. In the modern day, major powers and arms exporters still use the same loophole by shipping vehicles and its “military parts” separately just like in the movie and nobody bats an eye.
It is how countries still manage to support governments you think would have collapsed a long time ago. None of this is repeated in modern news media because the biggest arms dealer in the world is not some guy operating outside the law, it’s the President of the United States, the President of Russia, President of China, Prime Minister of Britain, President of France… And even emerging powers such as Germany is in on it.
Is it… Weird… That somehow… The big five… Are also the FIVE PERMANENT MEMBERS THAT SIT ON THE UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL. YOU KNOW, THE ORGANIZATION THAT FRONTS FOR GLOBAL PEACE AND LIMITATIONS OF WAR?
Kind of suspicious, don'tcha think…

DOMESTIC - COMPANY ABANDONS POTIONS AS BASIS. BUTTONS SUBSTITUTED
The health potion, the Company’s main currency denominator since 2012 has been officially abandoned and in its place buttons and other such tools shall take its place. The reason being that potions are a dime a dozen in this game and is even sold off as part of exported battle inventories that it doesn’t make sense to accept them in the first place.
In its stead buttons are being used as they offer access to locked parts of the game.
DOMESTIC - NEW BASE ESTABLISHED. RESOURCES DEMANDED
The new base to help facilitate the new markets has been established but needs just a bit more resources. 5 Power II bows have been delivered, now all it needs is a couple of Iron Armor Sets and three more diamond swords. Glowstone supplies are also to be redirected to the new base.
In addition, in the future, if the resources in the new markets are met with demand, maybe a supply run shall replace the trade run every couple of weeks.
