HEADLINES: BOONUT CHARGED WITH LE WAR CRIMES OVER CRUSADING IN CROWMURE
ASPERMONT, WESTERLANDS - Sir boonut and a few Crusaders pillaged Crowmure and Crowmure farm this week for indiscriminate killing last Sunday. In boonut’s lawyer’s defense he said he was simply “spreading the Glory of God’s Love” and that he was functioning under his Knight hat and not his UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company hat and the Crowmure is a special region where banditing is allowed.
Knight Brother boonut only expressed regret as had it not been for the laws of this land, he would’ve slaughtered them.
EDITORIAL - SUSTAINABILITY VS GROWTH
Irishkaiser - The advent of global economic growth has brought up both opportunity and issues with the most apparent being environmental sustainability a risk over human consumption and demand with pollution and depletion feared by many. How does one reconcile both growth and sustainability as economically speaking, renewable energy sources are considered more expensive to maintain on average and you have to be blessed with ideal geography to be able to use you them? Hot dry and non-cloudy environments for solar panels, windy plains or hills for wind turbines or plentiful rivers and waterfalls for dams.
No country has all of them and a lot don’t have them in sufficient amounts to generate energy for the entire country.
The answer, I personally think, is to allow economic growth to happen at first. Yes. Why? Because people who would go out of their way to support environmental friendliness are generally burgeoning middle-classes that can help afford the extensive costs of environment-support. A wealthier, educated middle class more often than not demands cleaner environments because poorer people would put self-preservation as a priority, meaning cheap potentially polluting goods and services are on the top of their list because they can afford it.
It can be seen around the globe at home and abroad where people who became eventually educated become more environmentally aware. It is therefore, in the opinion of this author, not necessarily the correct path to hound developing nations or growing nations for not using renewable energy right away from the start because they CAN’T AFFORD IT IN THE FIRST PLACE.
That and your local regions that use polluting methods in the first place. Rather, it would be more helpful to donate or invest in renewable energies rather than I don’t know weapons and shit.

PvP Drill 156th Mass PvP Event - Crusadin' in Crowmure and Crowmure Farm
Whoo boy, spreading the “Glory of God’s Love” in more ways than one by patrolling and slaughtering around the triangle of the West in the funniest way possible(people running into them without noticing). At the end when people left, the knights somewhat spent especially in terms of food devolved into a tour as a couple of guys wanted to see the so called “new” places in the West such as Sanctuary of Peace(rebuilt) and Forest(quest) after reading a couple of change logs, but the Knights were attacked and outnumbered by a bunch of premiums, putting up a good fight with Sir Irish killing one in single combat. A fellow scout was slain however and seeing his fellow Knight Brother of Grimdale chasing another enemy but realizing he was spent on food the Knight of Aspermont ordered a retreat, meeting up with his fellow Knight of Grimdale giving him what’s left of his food and told him to run while he did his best to make sure they couldn’t follow him, by leading them all far away. The Knight drew all of them and fought them in Logging Camp, dying and spending all of his equipment with just some leftovers captured from the dead people killed earlier that somewhat cluttered his inventory.
