HEADLINES: RESISTANCE MET WITH FOREIGN OFFICE, NEW INDUSTRIES AND CLAN BANK
ASPERMONT, WESTERLANDS - The latter part of the reforms on internal relations started around a week ago have met some resistance on parts of the other three institutions of the UNKNOWN [?] Trading Company.
The Foreign Office maintains its need for its unique position, the New Industries also claims the same thing and the Clan Bank, well would you really trust actual, cold hard money in the hands of the… BARBARIANS? REALLY, SIR. IT IS QUITE AN APPALLING IDEA WITH THIS… COMMUNISM!
These pushbacks met no pushback from the rest of the Company who either did not care enough or thought it also wasn’t necessary.
There will be no changes as to the structure or better integration to the rest of the Company. However, they all agreed to the principle and said that “Yes, we should communicate more.” while doing absolutely nothing to ensure it.
Guess we are in the business of government now, boys.
EDITORIAL - Because I Love You.
Irishkaiser - The infamous Company methods of training involve controlled verbal and mental abuse that is seen by some as cruel and by many as unnecessary, especially in a video game where there are no real stakes, especially for a clan that makes money rather than spends it so premium isn’t really an issue here as a stake. But we justify its methods to “prepare them for the worst”.
In a way, it is the stern and tough hand of a parent that affects a child, not out of hate but out of love. The original intention is to make any Companyman function properly regardless of the situation and regardless of any disaster because they can simply tell themselves “I’ve been through worse.”
By breaking down individuals and building them back up to be tougher and stronger, they will remain unfazed in spite of anything being thrown at them and they can continue to properly do their jobs.
In a way, it is to protect them via vaccination or inoculation. This is why in our culture, being called a stupid fuck does not mean much in anything and it is more taboo to act because of that. A true Company Member would only operate within the vicinity of the clan’s legal system. Everyone is expected to follow orders and the hierarchy of command during a mission, in spite of personal opinions or feelings. No matter what we think about each other, we should, by design, operate and fight as one.
That is what you signed up for. Oozah that.
So if you’re ever being bullied by me, just remember - it’s because I love you. :V
TRADE - US MineZ Trade Mission
2nd Report on the Trade Mission conducted by Company Members in Carmi:
3 Pristine Chain Sets
3 Smite II Swords
A Trade Mission conducted in the horrible, desert town of Ira-Pravus. Soon as we arrived, we knew it was going to be bad shit. And, IRISHKAISER ALWAYS RIGHT. The damn thing was fucking deserted. Nobody wants, nobody likes Pravus.Fuuuuuuuck… What kind of brain-dead idiot would send me to suffer in a place like this..? Eli, Eli. Lemma sabbachtani?
MOST TRADING AND CONVERSATION WAS ACTUALLY DONE AWAY FROM PRAVUS AND CLOSER TO PORTSMOUTH.
Luckily leisure week next week so we can get the fuck out of here.
The good news is though we got our first colonial. So, it wasn’t that bad.
Also, this Trade Mission deployed UTC Prototype camouflages… Even though we don’t have a desert pattern yet. Kekkels.

PvP Drill 188th Mass PvP Event - Donuts Keep Their Skills Up
In addition to being dungeon-capable, the Debil Donuts keep their skills up in the scenario of a just in case, you never know when you might need to. Unfortunately, the 93rd Regiment does not seem to share that sentiment and prefers to put all their skill points in Dungeons.
I am immensely proud of the progress of some people by the way. With any luck, you might never have to use your KILLER INSTINCTS now. Hope that’s not a disappointment.
DOMESTIC - 2020 DLC SKINS TO BE RELEASED
Aspermont was hard at work researching, testing and producing updated uniforms last week that combined and built upon the foundational knowledge of previous Company Camouflage Expertise.
The institutional knowledge of patterns, silhouetting and customization has led to a more updated look of the uniform that is seen as both more adaptable and more field effective than before..
Currently, all the camouflages deployed are still being tested and are waiting for final comments, criticisms and suggestions before being given the go ahead by la Directoire.
DOMESTIC - OLD MAN MADE AN AUG. CALLED HIMSELF STUPID BECAUSE IT’S A BOW SKIN.
In a bout of inspiration, Irishkaiser decided to make the Austrian Steyr’s AUG/A3 CQB, dubbed as the “Schwarze Katze” to replace the bow in the modernization push alongside the updated uniforms.
It was only later when the basic bow was done that he realized…
“Wait a minute, this is fucking stupid.”
He then realized that the rate of fire, even for semi-automatic was slow as fuck. He also realized that the range, especially for a modern assault rifle is fucking stupid. Lastly, you PICK UP SPENT BULLETS WHAT THE FUCK.
God I’m so stupid…
FINANCE - SMALL POTATOES? STILL POTATOES
Tomato, tohmatoh. At least we gained something… Sort of…
