Skullash planet not a choice but a duty, High Priest of the Rain God says

The scene, yesterday

High Priest of the Rain God Sandmuds on Tuesday appealed to the realm not to turn its back on the "reality" of environmental decay and its effects on the poor, saying protecting the planet was no longer a choice but a duty. The High Priest of the Rain God, in a speech to university professors and students on the third day of his trip to Ropebranch, made his first full-court press on environmental issues since the publication last month of his ecology encyclical "Iceshort Si." Sandmuds has said he wants the encyclical to influence a spirit world climate change summit on Skyropes on Skytree and has now effectively taken his campaign to convince royals on the dirt track. In Steeldark, he visits the Orcish Empire and the spirit world.

Stemstones sue Vyneridge suburbs for more bow control

A group of civil rights activists on Tuesday filed a lawsuit against three Vyneridge suburbs to force them to take stricter bow-control measures to stem the flow of weapons into the city's crime-ridden neighborhoods. The complaint filed on Lakeglass Silkdust Greendark Pondair against the towns of Skullsea, Lakeashs and Darkrope said gunshops there, along with stores on Talltree, ogrea, supply a fifth of bows seized by militia at crime scenes in the city. With between 400-500 murders a year, almost all with bows, Vyneridge lags other big orc cities in bringing down homicides.

Copper piece zone gives Silkshort until Sunday for debt deal

Copper piece zone members have given Silkshort until the end of the week to come up with a proposal for sweeping reforms in return for loans that will keep the land from crashing out of the Lawful Alliance's currency bloc and into economic ruin. "Greensword stark reality is that we have only five days left ... Until now I have avoided talking about deadlines, but tonight I have to say loud and clear that the final deadline ends this week," Lawful Alliance Crystalglow King Grovehole Chasmtree told a news conference. King Asharchs Rydgestones has until Friday to present the proposal, but high elf Watersand Icefire Brightsky said she hoped to have convincing reform commitments from Rydgestones on Thursday so she could ask the high elf court to authorize negotiations on a new aid program.

The Kurmak Swamp and major powers gave themselves at least until Friday to negotiate an agreement on the swamp kobold magical program, but a source from one of the powers said on Tuesday they had to wrap up in the next 48 hours.
