KING To Suffer Sleepless Knights
In a surprising turn of events, BUTCHR, the Southern Confederation, and the Coalition of the Willing have all declared war on KING. BUTCHR, citing the repeated border incursions and diplomatic discourtesy of KING, declared war this morning with hopes of pushing their inhospitable neighbor out.
Intelligence gathered from the Southern Confederation’s spies in the Northwest Alliance found that several members of KING were urging the Northwest Alliance to join them in an attack on the south. Their specific aims were to establish puppet factions that they could spread out from. The plan fell apart though due to disorganization within the Northwest Alliance’s ranks. The Northwest Alliance has denied the accusations and called the intel faulty. The Deutsches Reich assured them the intelligence was strong enough to give cause to declare war. KING has not responded yet to the declaration though.
In an unprecedented event, the Southern Confederation and the Coalition of the Willing shared intelligence regarding northern aggression. It was indeed discovered by both that KING has been lobbying heavily for a southern invasion. Seeing the designs of the northern aggressors, the Coalition has joined the Confederacy in their war on KING. The three way fight against KING promises to be the largest war the island of Rustifac has seen.
BARred from Their Own Land
The unwillingly transient MURK faction has once again found themselves embroiled in a battle for land. Originally dwellers of the badlands, MURK had previously attempted to take land in the south but was promptly met with threats of an entire, united south evicting them. Swallowing their pride and making an intelligent decision, unlike K4P, they left with all their belongings to head north. The far east claim of BARBAR, once owned by ADEL, became their home where they have now declared themselves a separatist faction.
LOS and RADPD immediately threw their weight behind their BARBAR allies and set off to do battle with MURK. Well entrenched, MURK was able to repel the nearly 20 northerners and seize a great cache of supplies from them, including C4. Contracted by MURK, the Freikorps came just as the battle had reached its crescendo and the surviving northerners were in full retreat. Mowing down a few, the battle ended and MURK took to the offensive.
The Freikorps contract to help MURK has since expired and MURK has challenged BARBAR to fight them like men, one on one. BARBAR issued a statement in response: “We BARBAR have the land to protect, if we lose we lose our land, but if we win, what are we going to win, we keep our land and that's it? [I]f you want a 1v1 fight put something up on the table and we'll discuss this. If we are cowards then what are you? Building on our lands, declaring war against us, killing our innocent members, turning our land into a KoS zone, while you stay inside because you're too afraid to die.”
It has become obvious that BARBAR, after suffering such a defeat last night, has become increasingly wary of engaging MURK; at least while they are on the defensive. It would also seem their trepidation points to a lack of able manpower as they seem to rely heavily on their Northwestern Alliance for assistance.
Southern Krieg League
After sowing the seeds of peace between BHC and zo.O, LUX has announced they have formed an alliance with The Nameless (TN) and zo.O. The Coalition of the Willing, as it is named, was formed due to “increasing aggressive posturing, positioning and attempted incursions by the North.”
Maejohl, of LUX, has been elected the CotW spokesman.
The Ore Score
Times have gotten tough for UMC as their member Sanic2E
has turned to a life of crime. Gone are his days of stealing the hard earned wealth of citizens under his Bolshevik dictatorship. Now, he has begun to advertise his skills as an artful thief for a price. For just a small
sum of 50%, he will steal from anyone and everyone except the Northwest Alliance. While it has always been known that communists steal from others to enrich themselves, it seems they have become so good at it in the north that they can make a criminal enterprise out of it.
Our competitor, the Rustifac Today, has announced the resignation of their current editor, Temper. We at the Rustifac Storm wish him well in his new endeavors.
