Izams fly over the cities of Atys, and the Marauder enclave, dropping leaflets. The title of the leaflet is: Free Distribution Of Cheng Root Anyone who picks it up will read...

To all homins to whom this message may come, greetings:

As was announced by other means (*) Phaedreas Tears was offered the chance to accept a friendly transfer of Zo-Kian Ruins Workshop Outpost. With the help of an assortment of homins of all nations and religions, we were successful in accepting the transfer. Even now, the drill is operating, producing modified Cheng root of the highest grade, together with Intelligence Flowers and the ubiquitous experience catalyzers.

Phaedreas Tears accepted the duty of management of this Outpost for one purpose and one purpose only, to ensure that the products of this Outpost would be distributed by a neutral party in a fashion that does not favor anyone, to the benefit of all homins in Atys, be they Kami, Karavan, Marauder or Ranger. (**)

How this will work in practice will be something that will require adjustment over time as we begin to understand the mechanisms both of the drill and the dynamics of guilds.

However, certain things will be constant:
1) All materials will be free of charge.
2) Phaedreas Tears will not keep any of the materials for ourselves.
3) We will publish the distribution each time we do it so that all can see what we have done.
4) Distribution will be once per season and a half (one week RL). It will not be depend upon a specific person or representative being online at the time of distribution. (However, any materials not claimed after another season and a half will be redistributed.)

Distribution will be one bunch of cheng roots and one or two flowers (depending on production) per guild per turn. No guild on the list will get a second distribution until all guilds on the list have had one. (OOC: The first distribution will be 20-06-2018 19:00 UTC.)

If you would like to be on the list we consider, send an IM to me and/or to Itzy, my second in command. We will make a payment ledger (OOC: spreadsheet). We will be checking Guilds using Moniq's book of Guilds of Atys. (OOC: RyGReg 0.8 /appzone 1947) To start with, guilds with fewer than four active members will not be considered. (Note: this may change if this grand experiment lasts long enough.)

NOTE 1: This isn't a perfect system for distribution. I doubt one exists. However, it is what we are going to use, and we will modify it if we find a better system.
NOTE 2: Phaedreas Tears does not fight against other sapient homins (OOC: no PvP). If any group that does not favor free and fair distribution of Outpost materials were to challenge our ownership, we will be dependent upon those who favor this experiment to defend the Outpost. We will keep you all aware.

In service to all of Atys,
MacOd Bittty, Guild Leader of Phaedreas Tears
(**) Trytonists will probably get some too, but we don't know who they are.

The various groundskeepers of the cities of Atys grumble as they pick up the pamphlets, but they post a few of them on the walls of stables and other easy to find locations.

Moniq got those news in middle of busy work. She was in jungle just few hours before. And now Obscurus Lilium, a guild who claim themselves to be Zorai and Kami, friends of Rangers, declare war against Phaedrea's Tears!

She found several sheets of a paper and wrote following personal letter adressed to Obscurus Lilium officials, Zorai representatives and Kami Ambassador.

For her own safety, she used karavan services to teleport near Zora. She delivered one copy to Ambassador in Kami camp east to Zora. After few minutes of considering the risk, she visited guild hall of Obscurus Lilium and Zorai representatives in Zora. She left one copy on each place as well as in AFC office to inform other neutral and ranger guilds about possible unprovoked attacks against them.

The izams fly again over the cities of the New Lands and the Mauder complex, shedding their cargo of parchment fliers.

My friends (and I will call you all my friends until proven otherwise) --

The peaceful take-over of Zo-Kian has prompted a response (actually, two responses), but before I address that -- I call upon all those who favor Zo-Kian remaining as a neutral, Ranger held, Outpost to come and defend it. I, unfortunately, cannot be there due to RL obligations.

The first response was a very thoughtful and impassioned missive by Northstar. https://app.ryzom.com/app_forum/index.php?page=topic/view/28710/1 #1
Note that passion and strength of belief are not bad things.

I have responded to his message, and based upon his statements, called on him to join, if he wishes, in the defense of Zo-Kian against the grasp of his co-religionists.

The second is a declaration against against Zo-Kian by Obscurus Lilium, a Kami guild with (apparently) only three active members. (Information from RygReg.)

Clearly this guild is only a front for the "Kami Alliance" -- that's OK, someone has to be the first person in a charge of the battle line.

I base the formation "Kami Alliance" first upon Northstar's clear declaration of independence as a free follower of Maduk and the Kami, and second from substantial conversations that both I and Itzy had with Caellan, acting as a messenger for "the Kami".

In these conversations (which are recorded in lumios sharable upon request) it is clear that there is a faction of those aligned with the Kami who felt that it was their *right* to declare upon Zo-Kian against Agan and the Shadowwalkers and that Phaedreas Tears had interfered with that "right."

It was also clear (to me) that the Kami players involved were totally unwilling to use the freely available mechanisms to *prevent* that transfer from taking place.  To wit, they did not "defend" against our "attack" (which set a minimal threshold of 6 in compliance with the CoC) in order to force Agan to retain possesion of the OP.

His statements included a claim that "especially lvl 250 outpost are symbols of power and domination." Clearly in his mind, the materials are secondary to Kami domination. I claim that they are productive producers of desirable materials.  Win or lose, I intend to distribute those materials next Wednesday.

This has been a wonderful experiment.  Will it continue?  That's up to you.

The groundskeepers roundly curse Bittty for littering.

Kiwa-Lie n'arrivait pas à faire griller ses termites, toujours ces izams en train de voler et essayer de lui crotter sur la tête.

Elle finit par prendre les parchemins attachés à leur cou et appris en même temps que l'avant poste de Zo-Kian avait été confié à bittty par les maraudeurs et que la guerre était déclarée par une guilde kamiste.

Elle en échappa le plat en terre où cuisait ses termites, elle mit un grand coup de pied dans le plat , se brula un orteil et se mis à hurler contre elle même et l'hominité tout entière, même son dieu le grand glouglou se boucha les oreilles devant le flot d'injures.

Son grand ami Bittty avait été bien téméraire d'accepter une telle offre mais il lui ressemblait tellement qu'elle comprenait son envie de faire profiter tous les habitants d'Atys de ses biens précieux....trop précieux pour ne pas attirer les convoitises de certains...

Une guerre, dans sa jungle, le pays qu'elle chérissait par dessus tout, ces homins prêt à prendre les armes contre des Rangers sans même avoir parlé avec eux...le chagrin lui coupa le souffle.

Elle n'arrivait pas à croire que ses amis seraient en face d'elle ce soir non pas pour parler et croquer ses cookies mais pour tuer les homins qu'elle aimait.

Elle jeta ses termites brulées dans un sac, pris des cookies et un tonneau de shooky et parti pour Zo-Kian, elle n'avait aucune intention de combattre les homins, elle tenait trop à leur vie pour donner la mort mais elle devait savoir jusqu'où la convoitise les conduirait et surtout si ses amis, ceux qui parlait le dialecte de Min cho seraient là aussi, elle avait grandit avec eux et ne pouvait imaginer qu'ils viendraient combattre sans explications.

Well, they made 15 rounds. (Overkill a bit?)

The drill produces for us until the attack is over, and we currently have 8 cheng root and 7 INT flower. I expect at least one more of each before Lilium takes the OP. It would appear that the experience catalysts have been removed from the OP mix. (yay!)

I need a few more guilds to write me or Itzy and request consideration for distribution of mats on Wednesday.

Oh, dear, I forgot: Thank You to all of you who showed up to help defend the Outpost. We appreciate it.

We have decided not to attempt to beat the threshold for phase 2. If people want to show up and play, that's cool, but we are not organizing anything.
