Notice of intent for Cnossos: BRC

BRC dropped a war chest today (6/10) at 3pm EST, declaring their intent to blockade Cnossos.

This is a sinker - and we ask that our allies join us for limb-slashin' action!

Blockade starts at 12 noon PDT (6/11), 3pm Eastern Standard Time (do a /info to find the current time PDT). Jobbers, please start to show up approximately 1/2 hour beforehand. Battle navvers, please show up 1 hour before, so I can get you into crew chat.

If you wish to help us out, please send me (seahag) a tell or any BRC senior officer.

Jobbing contacts will be Seahag, Spoom, Saltylady and Yeemum.

Thanks, and see you on the battlefield!

Re: Notice of intent for Cnossos: BRC

Err... will Vilya be defending?

Edit: For that matter, will it be sinking? Vilya actually does own the island.

Re: Notice of intent for Cnossos: BRC

Eh...good luck Cnossos. If my past dealings with their monarch (which are admittedly few) are an indication, the armpitiness of Cnossos will continue.

How can this be a sinking blockade? Vilya hasn't returned the declaration of war (yet).

It is one of the most colonized islands on midnight, some say over colonized.

I am somewhat confused as to how the attackers will ensure that it is sinking, unless this is another hoax.

Is the island still listed as uncolonized? Can you shout on it? At one point after the island crumbled, the answer to that was 'yes'. Taking an uncolnized island is always sinking (no matter what the population is).

I personaly am unable to check as my account on Mindnight expired months ago.

Re: Notice of intent for Cnossos: BRC

It is no longer uncolonised. Vilya owns it.

I thought Cleaver said that all blockades against Vilya isles will be sinking? Or did he just mean uncolonised isles?

Re: Notice of intent for Cnossos: BRC

So soon as my errant Royalty (? Who appointed them??) log in, war will be declared.

We will see about defence. I encourage others to step up to the plate. Sponsorship may be available.

Hey, I'd have doubted too, until the Captain posted. No shame in being wrong on this one.

Have to agree here. I've only had one experience, but it involved their monarch captaining a War Frigate full of greenies, where he would go AFK for huge stretchs, and the raise crew's restocking cut at each port.

I'll be not-lazy for this blockade and help Vilya, or help whoever else helps Vilya.

Aye, and then made the offer to everyone on board their ship to come and get a fair cut of what we took, if they wished.

I assure you, BRC has the best intentions for Cnossos. We will work with the shop owners of the island to make it a better place to do business.

Re: Notice of intent for Cnossos: BRC

Please outline what you believe is the "best" thing for cnossos. We'd all like to know.

You can polish a piece of concrete 'till your hands are worn out, but you're never going to make it shine. I really can't see a way for you to better the economy at Cnossos so right now I, along with many other shoppe owners, aren't sure that we want or need a government.

Prove me wrong and tell me how you're going to make things better. Please.
