Illyriad is amusement. I read it for information about my amusement. And offcourse it's written from a certain point of view. Everything that's written is. Except braille.

It is a propaganda piece published by one side.

propaganda:  the spreading of ideas, information, or rumor for the purpose of helping or injuring an institution, a cause, or a person

i'm sure Rill has some supporting information for this accusation, or else her own remarks would seem to fit the definition at least as well as does her target.

So "spreading of information for the purpose of helping a person" and "spreading of rumor for the purpose of injuring a person" are propaganda? I love the word, but thankful that English is not my first language! :D

I enjoy reading Illyriad times. It is very cool!Thumbs Up

Keep up the reporting. It makes for a great addition to the game. And to think without Land Claims this would have been a boring read. It is just sad that people try shoot you down instead of just enjoying the reporting and fun of it as it was intended to be.

One would have thought that some of the vets would have learnt by now that the forums and things are not the place to go if you want the truth. YOU WANT THE TRUTH? YOU ALL CANNOT HANDLE THE TRUTH.

I do have supporting information, but so does the Illyriad Times, I am sure.

One major difference between my posts and that of the Times is that I am making them under my own name, and people can make their own judgments about my motivations.

For the record, the small portion of my brain that is no longer inside my head can be viewed on slides at the University of California Irvine School of Medicine.
