Editors note Mikamon

Welcome to issue number 122 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

Time seems to fly by as yet another week has passed, and the large Buzz team has done its very best to bring you an action filled Bootleggers Buzz once again. This week we have our action articles as well as some weekly segments and even some Freelance Articles for you to read. Despite our large team, we are of course still looking for new writers, though we will be more strict in who we hire for now.

Then, on to our main agenda, the Buzz itself. This week we saw a return of a few higher ranks as the State Don spots started to get filled again. With only a very small amount of State Dons previous week, we at the Buzz were glad to see the spots getting filled again at the start of this week, for the rank of State- and Nation Don has caused action in the past, and of course we are hoping for that now as well. However, we are still waiting for the State Don that will receive the invite that will make his or her profile turn from silver into gold, who the new Nation Don will be remains a secret for now.

Furthermore, the week saw a bloody day as The Syndicate awoke from its hibernation only to target Eternal Labyrinth. Despite the aggressive and merciless spree that left no survivors, Eternal Labyrinth was quick to return. It was decided, however, that the crew wasn't strong enough and thus the spot was sold to a crew of the old days, Virtual Reality. Alongside Virtual Reality, we also welcomed Maranzano Camorra and Chaos Soldiers to the statistics this week, although we were very quick to say goodbye to the last one as they were taken over and sold to the earlier wiped Eternal Labyrinth.

On top of that, Perpetual Elysium is under attack as this Editors Note is being written, but due to time shortage the Buzz will have to let this event go by for now and will give you all the ins and outs in next week's issue.

Of course we have our Weekly Segments 'A Year Back' and 'The Weekly Flash' for you to read, whilst 'Behind the Name' is still being revised and 'Telling It Like It Is' has absent in this issue as well. Moreover, we also have two Freelance Articles for you to enjoy. Keep sending those in, because we as Buzz team just love to read them.

Last but not least: Prize winners! I'm sure most of you will remember the Easter competition Nyxxie hosted previous week. She has been kind enough to pass me a list of the winners so that I can put them up here. All winners are to contact Nyxxie whilst she is online in order to claim their prize and arrange an Escrow for the points.

The Syndicate vs. Eternal Labyrinth TheDadMan

The Syndicate. Chances are you will have heard of them if you have been around since before this reset, or the early stages of this round. Like a mythical creature, this crew seems to appear, conduct its business and then disappear again. What we at the Buzz should mention is that crew’s business is killing, and for The Syndicate, business has been good this week.

New Crew: Chaos Soldiers, but not for long! PerseveranceV2

With crews coming and going from the stats all week, the surprise factor may even of evaporated as Chaos Soldiers hit the stats.

Only a couple of days after selling its own spot to Virtual Reality, Eternaly Labyrinth made its return by buying the taken over Chaos Soldiers crewspot.

Pirate Treason Meeeeyyyyhuuuhhh

It was a dark stormy night, rain lashing down, waves crashing against the ship as it bobbed around in the sea. Voices, the sound of a gunshot and a splash were heard. A sudden crack of thunder lit up the scene, the face of the person on the ship was visible. DrSyrrist was holding his still smoking musket as the body fell from the plank and hit the water. As the waves rolled towards me I saw the body, it was SexyTyzzan and he had been brutally murdered by his own crew. Was this an act of treason he was killed for? I decided to head to port to ask around, to uncover the truth.
