Strange New Competitors

We all know the arena attracts its share of unique and intriguing characters, most bent on becoming the best; or at least making enough cash to make themselves look like the best.

What has been of special interest to keen eyed arena fans has been the influx of new summoners entering the games. Mimosa Nightshade, Yodin Zaku and Lir Deepswimmer amongst many more, even a llama of some sort rumours say.

But lately, there have been new summoners seen. No details have yet been released as no one has managed to pin them down for an interview. But keen eyed observers can see them getting ready to join the battles and the excitement is bulding.

What part of the Splinterlands will they hail from? What strange and unique abilities will they bring? Will they have some sort of tradeable card associated with them? The questions are multitudinous to say the least.

But, avid readers, we will all have to keep calm and wait on as they say. But until then, we will keep watching and reporting the news as we see it.

Expeditions Folding Up Shop

As the Wizards are closing the discounted sale of land, speculators are discussing whether a third wave of eager buyers, fearing missing out on a great deal, will arrive at the port near Mox City.

The rush of buyers in the first and second sales was astronomical and overwhelmed the desk clerks until a lottery system was enabled to help alleviate the bottleneck.

While many are certain to see the land sell out completely, some serious buyers need to arrive in the next few days to scoop a few more deals before the wizards put the prices up to their normal amounts. Then begins the wait for the moment we are all allowed to begin the proper exploration of the lands themselves.

Cryptic Graffiti On Tour?

More of the indelible graffiti has been spotted, this time in several Anumunian ports. Word has reached the Gazette from correspondents across the sea that the graffiti that plagues our fair city from time to time has begun to be seen elsewhere.

Unknown is whether it bears any true connection to the nonsense phrases found here. According to reports, the phrases are similar but the handwriting is somewhat dissimilar to that found on our streets.

Could this be a phenomenon spreading across the Splinterlands? Or merely the work of a talented copycat? Only time will tell.

I still haven't had the pleasure or maybe the terrorizing time battling with this summoner yet.

I would like to see The Gazette do more in-depth reporting on the Council of Barons' deliberations. Too many times we've seen our taxes raised with no warning and only find out after the fact when the proclamation is nailed to the council notice board.
