"Wasting Bandwidth Off And On For A Few Months Now"
The BWG has been planning an exclusive scoop for weeks now: A preview of a
soon-to-be-published manuscript by the Ackanomian Undead variously known as
snowgod, Mr. Nacho, and Mr. Lunatic Fringe(currently controlled as a
Zombie). However, with some embarrassment the editorial staff must confess
to having misplaced their copy of said manuscript, so perhaps it shall
appear later. In the meantime, under strict instructions from their editor
to keep the paper from going Belly-Up, the staff of the BWG has prepared
the following tidbits:
Fantasy Billboard Moves
Last week the Fantasy Billboard contest, a key element in the Snail Shell
treasure, seemed to be grinding to a halt. In fact, it was merely
preparing to resurface in a new format, and at a new URL. It is now
located at http://fantasy.billboard.com/, and is based entirely around
Microsoft Active Server Pages, which is widely perceived as a step
backwards. Also, due to some kind of glitch, in the week of transition
the plays of many players seem to have been lost. However, the game is
continuing, and seemingly thriving.
President Denies Rumours of Cowardice
Recent allegations that President Alfvaen was so scared of the Orange
Menace that e was afraid to leave eir house have been denied by the famed
Ackanomian. The President states that while e is still uncertain how to
deal with the Menace, as revealed in eir recent posting of the wisdom of
Phoebe, e is far from "afraid" of them, and eir recent spurt of inactivity
has been mostly the result of the necessity of dealing with Extranomic
(though not Internomic)duties. The interview, conducted by carrier parrot,
was necessarily brief, so the customary inquiries about treasure clues were
met only with a curt "You can count, can't you?"
Recent reports of watermelon sightings have been proven false.
