VICTORY! (posted 13:27)
It's done, the Pirates are defeated and Groptown is saved! The ships returned in time, the Pirates have been seen off, and Grophtown can rebuild! And what's this .... we seem to have found the way to Tollia!
Meanwhile in Grophtown (posted 4:35)
Meanwhile in Grophtown food stocks are running so low that many of the defenders have been reduced to eating their own armour and empty food sacks! However all is not lost. Brave Grophs have been sneaking through the siege and handing out food and healing potion to the defenders. Meanwhile the townsfolk who aren't fighting have shared out their own stocks amongst all the rest ... the King has even used a catapult to fling cakes over the walls!
No peace yet (posted 2:31)
It is with heavy heart that Grophlanders greeted the start of another day of siege this morning. Supplies are running low, and Grophtown's makeshift defences are showing the strain as the Pirates continue to rampage around our countryside. Food is running out, the fields are ablaze, and the harvest has been cancelled.
Meanwhile a first attempt at Parlay between Captain Qat and Amadeus ended in failure yesterday after Amadeus refused to pay the pirates to leave and Qat refused to have any hand in the rebuilding of Grophtown. With Amadeus' supporters and Captain Qat's crew looking ugly both parties withdrew. Will there be another attempt? We hope so! Surely the Pirates are realising that the defenders will never give in!
Finally rumors abound of messages being sent to the departed exploration fleet. Can they turn around in time to help?
NEW FEATURE (posted 13:46)
As many players have noticed, there is a new feature on individual Groph pictures. When your Groph is busy Playing or doing certain other activities their picture is now a close-up of the upper left quadrant of the Groph image. You've all now been officially told, so no more reporting it as a bug please.
