"OMG WE NEED JOURNALISTS. Please, if you're a regular player and want to help keep up the game's largest form of OOC news take up a topic listed HERE and help. Thanks! Now, as for other things and my personal feelings about the week... Post the creation of a Feedback topic for the BZPRPG, which seems to have really improved overall game interaction speed, The MNW decided to highlight in blue down in the News section any major events such as staff plot updates or story arcs of importance. These are things to jump on if you want interaction, and I hope this edit makes your lives easier. If not, please leave a comment below so I won't spend more time color-coding things than I should. The week has really picked up in tempo, and the Dasaka party just exploded with interaction and politics. As busy as things are getting over here with the Weekly, I'm very happy at the crazy whirlwind of awesome activity that's been going on. On a personal note, Ishi Polzin has 24 hours to get healed. Unless you wanna' see him die, please help." ~Kughii
"This week has seen another great step forward in player activity, and some neat new secrets have been revealed. We also got to see some pretty big plot developments. All in all it's been a splendid week." ~Gears
