Editors note Nyx

Bootleggers seems to go from a week with everyday filled with constant action, to weeks where nothing is happening. None the less, the writers of the Buzz try their hardest to bring forth new information for everyone to read and get some form of entertainment when the trigger-happy players seem dormant.

This week, our cover story entails the takeover and retaliation of The Supremacy. With only 10 crew spots, takeovers have been more common than ever and it seems any crew would put bullets through even their best friends for a spot.

We continue with Air's third edition of the "Casino: A Fraction of Fame" as per request of a member of the Elite Guard. With the maximum bets so low this reset, it has come forth to many player's attention if owning a casino is a ticket to popularity and the pleasure of seeing their name in lights rather than what is really intended for.

It was tried once in the forums and seemed to be pretty popular and at the BL Buzz, we thought it would be a good idea to add the Bootlegger's Buzz Awards. This is your chance to vote for best player, best crew boss, best Elite Guard member, nicest player and other subjects of that nature. So please read below and please send in your votes!

As always, we are looking for writers for the Buzz and all applications can be sent to with a sample article. Please bare in mind your spelling, punctuation, grammar and choice of article and refer to Issue 10's article "Your Ticket to the Buzz Forum" for ideas on how to make your article the best it can be!
