HEADLINES: MASSIVE OLD WORLD STASH RECOVERED BY UTC
ASPERMONT, WESTERLANDS - Company archaeologists discover and unearth an ancient Company alt nestled in the Far East containing plenty of Old World supplies and equipment, including an Old World ShotBow. The account had been recovered and its contents placed in a museum. This was just a part of a drive and effort to locate and account for all alts for the last two weeks, which has led to a discovery of vast wealth all over the map. Throughout all of this, archaeologists discovering their long lost Eastern connections in the process.
“The Company certainly wasn’t just a REGU-CENTRIC civilization.” says Dr.Amon Goeth, a graduate of the University of Hitler Did Nothing Wrong “We’ve always had pockets of our culture beyond REGUPE and we were never just a REGUPEAN Empire.”
The vast rediscovery of old world loot all the way from 2013 has resulted in the expansion of the Museum Alts as well.
“We have so much stuff from the Old World that it warrants an expansion to the Historical Institutes.” Director and Patron of Culture Irishkaiser said “Thankfully, a Company Member wishes to donate an entire alt to hold the extra Old World goods in order to preserve our history and the history of the game for future generations.”
When asked if they will ever return to the old outposts or will the new outposts be placed elsewhere, the Foreign Office interrupted and said “That is an administrative question and not a question for the Historical Institutes. No more questions. Thank you.”
EDITORIAL - How to prevent faulty trials or questioning.
Irishkaiser - For years I’ve seen in this community some really stupid people. These people sometimes use a so called formal “trial” or some other kangaroo court bullshit to justify their stupidity. Those aren’t trials, they’re circuses that they use to unnecessarily condemn or exonerate individuals based on political grounds and or connections rather than based on true facts or evidence. These faulty fault finding committees come from admins and as well as players and it just makes it worse for everybody.
Yes, the UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company’s system is far from perfect like any judicial system in the world, and it’s also evolving still since we’ve never formalized at all the way trials are run with many of it being based on historical precedent. But we are still, without a doubt, the best at this. How do we do this? Well it takes a perfect requirement to make the very least an acceptable judicial system.
1) People - the people in charge are usually elected by a system of people in the first place who vote or do what they believe is right. To have a proper trial, you need a judge and or jury. Individuals who can see through an issue unbiased and are willing to accept evidence as equally important and must be judged by its merits.
2) Philosophy - though the Company has no set rules, it is based on philosophical beliefs of a common law. Common law, like the name suggests, is not based on any formal document or written rules, but inherently found in the majority of systems. The right to prosecute and defend, the right of a jury and of course innocent until proven guilty beyond reasonable doubt.
In addition, our trials are transparent so people will know that we have no secrets and that it wasn’t a shadowy trial. Everything was public. Every individual in the UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company, Member or Regimental, has the right to plea and… Technically sue the clan for unjust actions which did happen before when the Company was made to compensate an individual for his losses because of Company related injury.
The ability to admit you’re wrong in face of evidence or facts is also much to be desired.
3) Words - Quite possibly the most important of all. THE WORDS. As a clan that is generally well-educated with many individuals attaining degrees and or interests in intellectual pursuits, the proper use of words can be the most important way trials are run. Many times I’ve seen people use not only the wrong questions, but downright manipulate the entire audience with “questions”.
When posing questions, under no circumstances can it be too specific. This just makes it harder to find the truth. For example, “were you there when you did CRIME to VICTIM?”
Any person can flat out deny that and get away with the rest. But asking different questions like “Where were you during that time?” can establish a story that THAT person must stick to and that other contradictions will erode their credibility.
I would give more examples, but now I’m late in publishing news. Khajiit goes back to harvesting armor now.

in value exchange for
Lots of Potions and Buttons and Food I don’t fucking count
A fully armed trade run facilitated by the needs of the Company because Irishkaiser, the trade run leader had the genius idea of a Combat-Merchant Inventory. He had a lot of stuff to sell and had a reasonable number of Splash IIs but unfortunately the dumbass had no food. I can fight, I can sell, but I can’t run lol
This Trade Run only told the UTC to bring WAY MORE STUFF down South, almost tempting them to bring 2 merchant inventories, provided we have enough guards for two merchant inventories.
The first time in awhile the 93rd participated in a trade run too. Punk ass dungeonfags.

DOMESTIC - 93RD COMPANY MEMBERS BRINGS UP HIS LEGALITY AND GRANTED MEMBERSHIP BY PREROGATIVE
A longtime 93rd Company Member has admitted that in reality his Membership may actually be illegal since he was voted in without his consent for a span of what could have been six years. Six years of illegal membership.
To immediately fix the issues and prevent future issues of forced membership without consent, Irishkaiser used his Prerogative to make him a Company Member ex post facto. Meaning all his actions and representations as a Company Member have been retroactively legitimate.
Irishkaiser later went on to the next problem immediately after slapping him.
Gun made a stupid comment saying it “wasn’t necessary” which I countered why it wasn’t then he started crying because I was was bullying him again. Grow a fucking pair, damnit. punches in gut
DOMESTIC - OVERFLOW OF GOODS CAUSES COMPANY PRODUCTION TO BE STUPID
Ok so the only problem is inventory space actually kek. We are still technically on the Low-Effort High Yield production playstyle but now I have all these waste goods. I can’t just sell them for a severely deflated price because then the problem becomes inventory space.
FINANCE - CHINA DOING WELL - CLAN BANK STILL WARY
The China Index is doing particularly well recently, especially as people are allowed to go back to work and RUN THOSE FACTORIES. The Clan Bank however remains wary of a second wave outbreak forcing the central government to once again close things down.
The small reprieve has brought a glimmer of economic light. The United States however with a more transparent economy is still in the shitter for the most part. Ironic just a bit because warnings of a recession have helped the country prepare to counter a recession. Maybe China is willing to lose its elderly population or something to stop paying all those pensions kek.
