    THE SCAMMING THIEF
    I was stealthing along in Luna one Monday when something caught my attention. It was a person named Tien Kaelus and another one named Kattasrophe. They were in Luna bank and seemed to be having a fight. I watched quietly. I finally understood that Tien had stolen a power scroll from poor Shadowen and Kattasrophe was there to get his scroll back. Tien simply asked for his money first to put into his bank box, before giving Kattasrophe the scroll. She refused and they argued for over 30 minutes. Finally, he could stand it no longer and left the bank. The argument continued in chat, him versus Kattasrophe. As I also learned, Tien Kaelus scammed Edward Teach out of 12 mil that Sunday.
    As for I, I am a spy - The Siege Spy
    [Editor: In fairness, we contacted Tien Kaelus who denied it was a scam but failed to provide any other explanation.]

    ELWOOD MCCARRIN SICK AND TIRED OF OCLLO
    Citing a problem with "The walking dead" NPCs, "Stinking up the docks," The Well-Known Collector has requested a transfer away from The Albatross tavern. "God told me to hang out in Luna," the old quest giver explained, "I have to get new players drunk & send them out to reform PKers." The King's Council, known colloquially as the counsels of the small & the silly, has yet to act on Elwood's request.

    BEAUTY PAGEANT
    - Hoffs
    The annual Miss Siege beauty pageant will be taking place at the end of the month where we'll once again find out who the most desirable lady on the shard is. Those who enter will be assessed in four different areas and she who finishes with the highest score will be crowned Miss Siege 2013. As always, we are using independent judges from off-shard to perform the assessments, and this year we have some senior members of the Stratics news agency as well as Sosaria's most famous cook. They will be using a split of 2d and EC clients.
    For de'tails see the "Miss Siege 2013 - Sign-up thread" on the Siege Stratics forums.

    WHY THAT NAME?
    - by RueTor
    Morgan Ironfist: All other Shards my fighters/Dexers had the name Morgan Ironwolf (from the red D&D-Box as a suggested name). When I came to Siege I wanted a clean start and lose all ties to my real name (Wolf, true and given name) so I thought about with what I should replace the "wolf" part of my name and came up with the Ironfist....
    Norman Bates: "I was named after my M-M-Mother...NORMA...Norma Bates."
    Luka Melehan: Luka and her sister Rowena are from a text based fantasy RP I did online years ago. There I primarily played Rowena, who was a warrior. In the RP, Luka was still a teen that Rowena was raising on her own, and she used to dress Luka as a boy to protect her from bandits. Rowena never made it to SP because I was told that there was another Rowena who didn't play anymore, and while it was a different person it would undoubtedly cause problems.
