Hey! What are TO's plans for the islands. Last I looked, you upped taxes on your islands to 100%. Can we expect more of the same if TO wins Turtle and/or Spring?

Sorry folks, we hadn't noticed that Redshadow of Dies Irae hiked taxes to 100% until one of the shopkeeps asked about it. We've returned them to the 10% they were at before the blockade and will be tracking down shopkeeps to refund the difference, for any shop whose taxes came due before we noticed.

I would've said to go chase Redshadow, but the pirate isn't a Royal anymore. What happened there, anyway?

Turns out, shadows are black and grey - not red.

I'll apologize for him - used a wee bit of bad judgement - Redshadow has gone and gotten himself a real life and wont' be around pirates as much anymore.

I believe that in Newspeak , "used bad judgement" is synonymous with "was a barrelstopper". Another example would be how my kid's school sends the children home with something they call "homefun" (*), an item that looks suspiciously like what was known as "homework" in my day.


(*) I'm not kidding. His school actually calls it that, as if calling that makes it better. Not surprisingly, the kids see right through it.
