Thad Plate Home Page: Type in
and you'll arrive to my own Webpage. There I have posted the latest Newsfaxes from my games and will also post maps and info for the newly starting Lords 12. My site will be the first to link the latest newsfaxes and will act as backup in case the Gumby site is down. Check it out.
Price Changes: For those of you who have been sending and recieving turns by eMail and faxes from the Web, I will now charge 3.50 + 25¢ per BL per turn (That's 50¢ less) per turn effective with the processing of the next turn (Lords 9: turn 124, Lords 10: turn 84, Lords 11, turn 24 and Lords 12, turn 1). Due to increasing paper, copying and mailing costs I must increase 'snail-mail' turns to $4.50 + 25 per BL per turn at the same time. I encourage all of you to join the internet as soon as possible.
Diplomacy Results: (ne)=no effect.
Section [9.9.1] How Nomadic Nations Work: The first two sentences, "When out in ....vast via Horde Diplomacy." should be crossed out. Table 2.9 make a provision for nomadic societies to ignore troop support in steppe regions.
Port Fortresses: Just to clarify and clear up that confusion. Port Fortresses may not be used for conduit anchors. You can, however, use them for land trade if the port fortress is within your Trade Range of sea zones from your nearest port.
Lords of the Earth, Campaign 12H: It's happening now! Like Lords 9 this game will be a historical start at 1000 AD. There are 112 openings which will be assigned by lottery, on Friday, March 28th. I plan two week turnarounds for this game, and because of that I can only accept local (Phoenix area) or eMail players. The Turn 0 Newsfax can be found at both my Homepage and the Lords Homepage and in hard copy at both the Game Depot and Waterloo Games in the Phoenix Metro Area. If you are interested let me know electronically, in person or by phone.

DAS STORDANSK KEISERDOMME
Kristan, Kaiser of All Danes, Tsar of the Russias, Smiter of Winic Daemon Hordes, Defender of the Faith, Master of the North, Emperor of the Western Romans
The Danes sent their navies to protect their coastal waters from the Russians. A great big shipment of gold (900 megamarks) arrived from the Guinnean Umma. The whispered rumors were that the Dread Imam wanted to buy the Danish Empire. Sven Olaffson joined with Deacon Jones to militarily convert Cornwall to the best version of Christianity. Having done that both set off into the Atlantic with their ships to visit the Canary Islands by the end of 1559. In Halland by the cold Skaggerak waters, Varberg was founded.
THE REFORMED CULDI COUNCIL
Edwin, Scion of St. Camber, Head Dom of the Culdi Council
CONSECRATION: Sussex(ca), Wessex(ca), Lancaster(ab), Northumbria(ab), Romsdal(ab), Anglia(ab)

Hugo called for no business as usual.
DAS KONENKRISK DER GRUSRHEIN
Willhelm V, King of Greater Rheinland, Lord of Batavia, Stadhouder of the Netherlands
The Dutch sent a force southeast to clear Pannovia of the Hurszians. 116,500 horse mounted maulers, 135 artillery and 16 mortars rode through Alemania to Bavaria and then stopped. The directions said that Pula was next to Bavaria but the map completely spaced the Alps. Seth Bidj took the elite dragoons to Gascony. The Muslim Gascons were gunpointed in the way of Christ (EO) then the city San Pellegrino was sacked. The King had to take his 200,000 cavarly to smash 15,000 Pijar bandits in Thuringia.
THE MALIKAT AL ANDALUS - Rokkid Faction
Walid III, Malik al Andalus
DIPLOMACY: Valencia(c), Talavera(nt)
The Andalusians allowed the Yorubans to take land on the European side of the Pillars of Hercules so that they can build a fortress at Jibalterik.

Sardinia became cultivated. Baldini didn't take advantage of it.
Eastern Europe Mercs: 10mec, 10mei, 50mc, 10ma
THE KINGDOM OF HURSZIA
Vlad II, King of Hurszia, Grand Zhupan of Pethion
DIPLOMACY: Ludgorie(ea), Styria(ne), Temesvar(ne)
There was an assassination attempt on Vlad's life. He wondered who it was as he roused new troops into the military. Paich the arm wrestling champion of Paks almost got arrested by Russian guards in Thrace for 'Disturbing the Decent'. He fought his way out and hid at a tavern in Bulgaria.
THE PIJAR EXILE COMPANYSho-Ri took his band of slime to Thuringia to plunder
the place for nobody wanted to hire the Exiles as mercenaries. Almost the
entire Dutch army came down upon them and knocked them over flat. There
were very few Pijarites who had not been converted to bloody pulps.
THE HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE OF THE RUSSIAS
Sonya, Czarina of Great Russia, Empress of the East
DIPLOMACY: Yaroslav(hs), Veposkava(ne), Pelym(ne), Lithuania(nt), Kama Bulgar(c), Kirivich(ea), Prussia(t), Crimea(nt)
The Russian Tsarina agreed to hire the 4th Huang Army for three more years. She sent them the payment but the Huang Army Commander claimed to have never seen it. The Khitan condottieri raided a few public works in Ilmen and were chased off by 114,000 Russian troops. Another Chinese force came marching into Russia. 34,000 regular dragoons rode from Yayik to Ilmen to help out. They picked up their garrison that had been encamped near Vitebsk. Their leader Dua Hong died in 1558. Yaroslav didn't like the way they were treated by Minister Pratov. Tavda and Pelym revolted for being too isolated (and too Jewish) from Mother Russia.
THE HAN FOURTH ARMYHeavy desertion and some sabotage shook up the Fourth
Army. Deyi was hurt in a bomb explosion. What really did the Fourth was
lack of pay. The Russian welched on their deal. The troops, starving as
they were, went berzerk in Ilmen where they had to be killed by Russians.
THE ROMAN KINGDOM OF ANATOLIKON
Herakles, King of Rumania
DIPLOMACY: Macedon(ne), Malta(fa)
The Anatolians fully expected it to happen but they really couldn't do much to stop the 214 Atarikalimite slave galleys as they sunk the merchant fleet that traded with Egypt in 1557. These then ravaged Rhodes. Rhodes couldn't take it and quit Anatolia. 14 warships protected the Ephesus ships but these were destroyed by the bum black bastards and Ajax went down into the salty water. The Ephesos merchant ships were either sunk or captured. The Imamists then slave raided Macedon, raided Thessaly and Hellas and found a cove in Peloponesse to count their ill-gotten gains. Macedon and Thessaly revolted. To make up for all the bad stuff, the Russian delivered some more bags of Ghaznavid period coins. Crown Prince Cesar married a Maltese girl and brought her home. Ephesus grew to 6 Gpv.
THE KINGDOM OF ARMENIA
Nisibis, Shah of Armenia
The Armenians anticpated an attack and mass conscripted new soldiers for their horse army. They really would rather not fight and the Shah Nisibis declared Armenia to be neutral. Prince Acacis moved the troops to Psidia to guard the inland path. Paphlagonia became cultivated.

THE UMMA OF ISLAM (YORUBA)
Rucat, Sword of Islam
DIPLOMACY: Galam(f), Boure(a), Jenne(ea)
Eye brows were raised and there was some grumbling when a great sum of gold was sent to the Infidel (The Danish Empire). The Sword claimed the money was important for the inevitable conversion of Al Franj. The STIS contributed much bullion for the deal. Garou and Zerma were recolonized -- both are now (1/5)BM. Parq'rh, Tchien, Ilorin, Sevare improved as urban centers. A road connected Oran to Saf Oujda. A fortress was built by Jiko Taungi at Gibraltar. Morocco was converted to the Shining Path.
THE HIMRAD SULTANAT OF DAURA
Azucentia II, Sultana of Ngazargumu, Magajiya of Daura
The Himrad armies began to clear out areas abandoned by the old Ha'besh Kingdom. Gezira and Ain Farah were simultaneously enslaved and the captives were stockaded in Kordofan. 50,000 cavarly and princess Landeria and the Thebans guarded Cairo for their Fatimid allies who were supposed to be killing the Sunnites. The cities of Nozebned (7), Chirop'tera(8) and Mzunga Arudi (5) experienced civic sprawl.
Ayatollah Khomeni XV, Protector of the True Children of Islam, Guardian of the Shining Path, Imam
CONSECRATION: Nozebed(mn), Chirop'tera(mn)
The Imam was out of sight for a while. The Wuzallah bounced around the Dauran lands. The abbey in Kreda was moved to Salamat. Sagremar the Unruly Also led the Divine Navy against the Ghaznavid project state of Chrisitan Anatolikon. The 214 warships and a few catapults and barrels of gunpowder destroyed and captured the Greek merchant fleets. They also raided Rhodes, Thessaly and Hellas and slave raided Macedon. The Greeks, it seems, were wealthy.
THE OVI PANTRAPY OF MBUNDU
Okonkwo II, Pantrap of Mbundu, Lord of the Fell Gates of Khatovar, The Last True Afro-Pagan on Earth
The Afro-Pagans worked to support their less enlightened brothers and to streamline their empire. Mulobezi with a few troops conquered Likasi but it took much time. A postal road was constructed from Chokwe to Cameia to Likasi. Bwana and Kisumu jumped on Kivu and blasted them to bits. Kilwa (neutral) became cultivated.
East Africa Mercs: 20mi, 20mc
THE BASARI EMIRAT AL HA'BESH
Nasr ad Dawla Sa'ud Shah ibn Yusufri al Basar,Amir al Ha'besh

THE KINGDOM OF ABYSSINIA (ASEB)
Rapheal, King of Abyssinia, Negus Negesti, Anointed by Jah, Lion of Judah

Kalif-Sied, Chief Executive of the East African Trading Coalition
CAPITALIZATION: Kanyamagufa(bo), Saf Oujda(bo), Oujda(bo), Volta(bo), Safi(bo), Timbuktu(mf), Gao(bo)
The Coalition took over more trade for Atarikalimite clients sending a trade expedition to Siam. Kingdoms poured much money into building mercantile houses but with all that effort only two got built: Saf Oujda by the Umma and Mbundu's Kanyamagufa. Most of the STIS leaders were competant except Abd Hanna who stay in the main office and do paperwork.
THE FATIMID CALIPHAT AL QAHIRA
Al Jasur, Malik al-Arabiya, Lord Caliph of the Ba'athist Muslims, Keeper of the Martian Secrets
Lasik Khadafi had great plans for conquest but waited for extra troops that didn't amke it to Palestine. Inulla pased away in 1018 - her eldest (and newborn) son was proclaimed Al Jasur. The seasoned vizier (Khuki Sumra) would have been the regent but he had been captured by the Ghaznavids in Multan. So far the government held together. General Wufill exacted tribute from Shamiyah and Jazirah to come to a common border with the Ahmudids.
Southwest Asia Mercs: 20mi, 20mc, 20mw
THE AHMUDID EMIRAT OF BAGHDAD

THE KINGDOM OF NEW ITIOPYA
Daoraned, King of the Itiopyans, Negus Negesti, Anointed by Jah, Lion of Judah
DIPLOMACY: Ferghana(hs), Khokhand(hs)
Ion Fourth asked for the people of Karin and Berbera to move with him to the new homeland. No one wanted to leave except a few soldiers. These loaded onto Afghan ship (many had been damaged en route) and went to Sind. All who were already at Sind moved through Great Avestan (up the Indus valley through the Khber pass and through Old Afghanistan) to obtain former Sarkhagi territories. The 5000 cavalry, 90,000 infantry, 65 artillery and 40 catapults conquered Huang controlled Soghdia and settled his soldiers to become the ruling caste there. Old Samarkhand was sacked and a new Samarkhand was built using Coptic refugees. Soghdia was renamed Itiopya and it became Coptic (mostly). The nearby regions of Khokhand and Ferghana were very unhappy about them and made the diplomats who visited them feel very unpleasant. The last remaininggg regions in Africa rebelled to join Aseb's kingdom.
THE DAMXÜ KAZAKH HORDE
Damxü, Ataman of the Layerug Host
The Khan thought that 'Layerug' was too lame a name for such an awesome horde so he changed them to his own name: Damxü. 100,000 cavalry ran around the steppe a little and bypassed Chinese controlled Betpak and Ayaguz. How ironic that it was the horde that was polite.
THE FARUKAS SULTANATE OF GHAZNAVID
The Hearty and Hale Hotspur, The Huge, Heroic Hematitic and Humungous Hackalope, Most Honored and Holographic Highness, Tughril III, Hkan of the Hindus, Hsultan of Havestan, Hcieftain of the Hnutter Hbutters
DIPLOMACY: Tabaristan(f), Jowzjanan(c)
Do some poor, unfortunate Christian a favor or two and they'll screw everything up. Lanhim and the fleet of 670 warships, 191 transports made a return trip to Aksum to pick up the last Ethiopian remnants. On the way through the Gulf of Oman and passing by the Bab al Mandab, the fleet sailed into patches of oil which were lit on fire, destroying many ships. Other craft were sunk through various acts of sabotage. After the 5500 Coptic cavarly were taken back home Admiral Lanhim (hwo had been wounded by Heretic Extremists) and the Learned wondered if the effort was worth it all. The Itiopyans went on to mess with their Chinese allies in the north.
Cities expanded: Barises and Vijayangur, Now and Oruzgan to 3 Gpv, Indea to 4 Gpv, Nishapur sprouted to 9 Gpv; Peshawar became 10 Gpv; Thanesar converted to 11 Gpv. Money was given to both New Itiopya and the Russians.

Hurabhattangisanavarman, King Neptune of the Matay, Lord of Java, Chief of Celebes
Four cities expanded: Acehtong(3), Tanjung(2), Sapulut(2), and Zindalia(3). Pilbarra's new port was called Kitok. No one made any long distance trips across the Pacific Ocean. The Indian Ocean beckoned the sailors in a most disturbing way.
China and Japan Mercs: 20mei, 20mec, 10mea
THE SANLIN TUNGUS HORDE
Janron, Emperor of the North
127,500 cavalry appeared behind Janron of Tuchir.
DA HUANG CHINESE EMPIRE

Since that Japanese Navy was gone, the Huang mobilized their troops to take the war to Japan. Qian and 170,500 cavalry, 20 siege thunderfires, 67,500 elite knights and 150 elite dragonfires rode from Shangtu and forced tribute from Koguryo in 518 NH and Silla by 519. Tongon plus 416 warships (elite) with some various troops and 25 elite mortars sunk 38 Japanese warships then opened fire on the 120 foot walls of Tokyo. They had been softened up but remained intact at the end of 519 NH. On the 'Help the Rusi' front, much gold was sent down the Old Silk Road. Near the end of 519, a band of 105,500 Christians who had been under Ghaznavid protection entered and attacked Soghdia and then colonized it. This was a great disaster both for trade and for the Chinese global plan. Soghdia was needed to keep contact with Rusi and the string of regions beyond. Now isolated Uzbek, Arlan, Kulsary and Cim rebelled. A revolt in Bogazgol was suppressed. That plus Khwarzim and Yayik became isolated. Trade was lost with Russia and Armenia.
THE NAGATOBI SHOGUNATE
Tenno Yirutaga, 92nd Emperor of Nihon, Divine Son of Amaterasu

Ma'a and his navy in Guayami were not getting anywhere for the region was too distant.
THE REQUELA KINGDOM
Chitaotin, King of the Requel, Keeper of the Tikal Codex
DIPLOMACY: Jonaz Pame(ne), Huastec(c), Tamaulipec(ne)
The Pogo horde was a serious problem in Jornada. They looted the region but then turned on themselves. The Zacatec Prince moved in to Jornada and collected a few of them under his banner. The rest (who survived the brawl) went back to the Great Prairie. Tamaulipec, being isolated, revolted.
THE GREAT POGO HORDEThe Pogo Horde lacked the funds to pay their troops.
Mudawatta wanted to loot Jornada but that lacked the wealth to satify his
riders. They turned on Mudawatta then on each other. When the bruhaha was
over they were gone and were no longer a threat. The affiliated Chicagos
quietly left Chiricaua to resume the pastorial life.
THE BENGKH KINGDOM OF SAN FONKISO
