Editors note NYX2000

WELCOME to Issue number 93 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

The first thing you will notice is the different look of the Buzz. A big thank you goes out to the coding man in red, the owner of the game, BSF2000 himself, for working with me while trying to give the Buzz a little makeover! All the new features to the Buzz is listed in an article below dedicated to all the fun little gadgets the Buzz has been endowed with this week!

In the news this week is a handful of crew takeovers, blood, deception, greed, drama, and killing. All these wonderful things make up what happened this week in an action packed seven days that completely rocked our Bootleggin' world! Maybe that's going a bit far, but none the less, this was a pretty great week! We have GCC's killing spree, Jailor's killing spree, Minako's killing spree, m66's killing spree-- I think you get the point here.

Admist the crew takeovers, we weclomed back some old faces to the statistics page, such as Revelation and The Supremacy, all which, as this issue is published, are currently missing once again. Short-lived, it may be, but with their track record, the probability of them returning again is very high.

As always, we have our "Behind the Name" (which is a popular segment in the Buzz), and "A Year Back"." Through all the serious articles, there is always time for some that are just plain crazy! We also have a return of the "Did you Know" segment and an awesome contest that will get you thinking, playing the game, using those bullets and guns all for a VERY lovely prize.

We are always looking for writers. If you have what it takes to become a writer, feel free to read the article from issue 85 to see what we look for. Please send a sample article of a recent Bootleggers event to Nyxxie's current name (NYX2000) and she will personally look into it as soon as possible. Remember to mind your grammar, punctuation and spelling. If you are dead by the time we contact you, please submit the same article all over again! I currently have two articles that need to be read and approved/denied, so do not think I have forgotten about you!

Remember, anyone can write a freelance article and they are obviously free to do so. They are a chance for each of you to have a voice about the game and possibly share any thoughts that you may have with the BL community. Get moving and speak your minds! Also, be sure to check out www.blhelp.com, as advertised here.

Enjoy the read, everyone and have a wonderful next week!
