No offense to Splash, but I actually busted out laughing when I saw this.

This month, we caught up with Daisy Black of Coolerheads, one of Evan`s most skilled gunners.


This is the best one yet.lol

I'm waiting for the day a recruit is named one of the best gunners in Evan.


She is awesome  :D

Is this a bad time to tell you I have no power in this situation?

Thanks for the coffee :cyclops:

Having a new editor would probably be good and maybe a PM to sam can tell you more if he doesn't see this. Ive not kept up with the paper for well over a year or two. Lost the time and interest. Ayjona was going to come back and do stuff, not sure whats going on there.

Other than that, if you have anything in mind, have a story or have any ideas, I (or maybe one of the others) can add them in.

I always liked the ideas of a classifieds section, services, stuff like that. Tinker had an idea for regular columns, the weather report, regular on the beat reporting of the major events, CoE, SCL.

Man, I would love to read a sports page about the leagues and such. Then there could be Op/Ed pieces about who cheated and who doesn't like whom and who said bad things about whom, so I wouldn't have to see it in the forums.

Bastille: Embedded!


Part of him is ebedded in the sand, bits of him are embedded in the bumper of that BPU, his hollowed-out skull is embedded in somebody's mug collection...

Just saw the new gazette. Nice lead story. Lol. ;)

What about adding a small op-ed piece? I like the idea of using role playing narrative discussion. A lot of the bickering that happens on the forums might be better received through the lens of a characters speech than a forum post.

For instance, my gang HATES the alley. As a human, I get it—they're playing a game just like me. As a player, I want to strip the flesh from their bones and build a chair from the remains. It would be fun to stand on a virtual soapbox and seek allies instead of inviting a name-calling contest on the forum.

I see fair and impartial reporting will not be happening here....

Just another "shrimp" on the barbie, I suppose.

By definition, no.

Of course, if someone had an opposing opinion and could string words together in a sentence, they could write their own piece.

Just wanted to say that the current issue of the gazette is EXCELLENT! Really like the highlighting of particular note worthy things that happened and the vehicle "test-drive" is really cool. Throw in the story and the leaderboard updates and you've got an actual paper.

This is a gazette worth reading! Well done.
