Hello World 76! My name is Dwarven King, and this here is the World 76 newspaper!!! Now, those that have decided to help me have asked that I keep their names a secret. However, credit for the two banners goes to satorbj. So give him a round of applause for his good work!
Now then, how about we start things off, shall?
I would like to open up the first edition with the topic that's recently been buzzing around the externals. That's right, I'm talking about the disbanding of t.p.1. Why would I bring this up? Because yours truly found out WHO hit the disband button and got an interview with him! Don't worry, it's not a mile long...but I have agreed to keep his/her name a secret. However, I can say this person was working for TRY.

Hello good sir! I am with the World 76 Newspaper, and I'm currently going around looking for the big scoops! Well, a little birdy told me you were the one responsible for the disbanding of t.p.1. Is this true? If so, may I ask further questions?
Also, I swear on my Dwarf God Moradin that your name will not be revealed, should you choose to keep it a secret.
***** Aug 20, 07:07
Little birds are a pain it seems, yeah sure I don't mind answering questions, what would you like to know
Dwarven King Aug 20, 07:08
Well, let's start off simple. What made you want to disband t.p.1?
***** Aug 20, 07:10
It was my job to I was a spy
Dwarven King Aug 20, 07:18
I see, I see. And why were you selected to become a spy?
***** Aug 20, 07:19
I was not selected I offered my tribe these services and they agreed
Dwarven King Aug 20, 07:21
Alright, fair enough. Could you tell me how you infiltrated your way into t.p.1 and up to the position that allowed you to hit that disband button?
***** Aug 20, 07:39
slowly it took time. At first my goal was to just to take what info i could and the best way to do that is to get a spot on the council(leaders of the tribe) to know what exactly is going on. so at first i contacted people helped them with attacks and planning this would of put me in the council eventually.
but i had luck on my side it would seem one day none of the leadership was and a dispute erupted among a few of the players i stepped in and did what was need to be done when the duke came on he had noticed what i had done and gave me a position on the council perfect place for a spy one would say. most would stop there but i saw an opportunity and i took it i offered them better ways of doing forums and and planning attacks. They liked it and i was offered a position as co-duke
Dwarven King Aug 20, 07:50
I applaud your patience good sir. Truly, very few would have made it as far as you did. I just have one more question for you. See any juicy information you would love to bring to the surface for all of World 76 to see?
***** Aug 20, 08:04
nothing that would benefit the world but if your looking for whats left of t-p-1 they have banned together at [ally]hush[/ally]
***** Aug 20, 08:06
may i ask, what now?
Dwarven King Aug 20, 08:12
I do believe that's all the questions I have at this time. I thank you for your time and for patiently answering my inquiries. And as promised, your name will remain secret.
As you can tell from that, this player was originally posted as a spy to learn of valuable information. But...well...this person quickly gained enough trust to receive Duke Privileges. In other words, we could chalk this up as well...poor leadership.
Now, let's move onto another interview. We were going to have two interview up, but -END- went cold on us. So, we will only have one for this edition. Out of the top ten (as of the time the interview was done), all the tribes in the top 10 were mentioned at least once here on the externals...except one. I give you, my interview with the Duke of Ogres!
[/spoil]Dwarven King Aug 17, 00:44
Hell good sir. I am contacting you as I am currently hosting a "newspaper" for the externals over world 76. As founder of OGRES, I was hoping I could get a quick interview with you. ^^
Ogre Aug 17, 01:59
Hello, I have noted your endeavour on the externals, and efforts to add interest to the game. Let me first thank you for that and wish you every success.
I would be delighted to be interviewed by you.
Dwarven King Aug 17, 02:02
Most excellent! What you may have noticed is that your tribe is the only one in the top then that has had little to no mention on the externals. In other words, nobody knows a thing about you! Let's see if I can change that.
How about we start simple. Tell us a bit about yourself and the reason for why you play Tribalwars.
Ogre Aug 17, 02:05
I am a 'mature' player that enjoys TW for the distraction that it offers. I like the community of the tribe and have made a number of friends since first playing.
Dwarven King Aug 17, 02:06
A straight to the point answer. I like that.
Alright, next question. What made you wanna create the tribe OGRES and lead them?
Ogre Aug 17, 02:11
It has been some time since I started when a world was new and W76 offered me that. I spoke with a few friends and they were up for it, and so I started sending out the invites. OGRES was founded as a vehicle in which we could play together and hopefully have some fun.
Dwarven King Aug 17, 02:15
Well that vehicle has placed you in the top 5 spot in rankings. How's it feel leading such a high ranked tribe, and yet remain under the radar for so long?
Ogre Aug 17, 02:19
I have been somewhat overwhelmed by the interest players have shown in the tribe. We have great members who have worked hard in initial growth and have gained us that rank. For my part it means that I must work hard to serve the needs of the tribe. Hopefully we will continue to perform well.
Dwarven King Aug 17, 02:28
And what are those needs, if I may ask? Any future plans for OGRES you wish to disclose?
Ogre Aug 17, 02:35
We are still learning about our members. Since forming I have thrown regular challenges at them to evaluate their skill sets. Where someone struggles we offer tuition and guidance. This seems to be well received.
We have developed a leadership team of very competent people and do share the leadership workload. I am fortunate to receive such good counsel.
The short term plan is quite simple, to form deep roots within K45, and encourage player growth.
Dwarven King Aug 17, 02:40
I really do enjoy seeing a tribe being led by people willing to teach their members. In my opinion, it helps the community as a whole. ^^
It looks like the top ten may stay solid for a bit. Have any opinions on the leaders of the other tribes? Any opinions on what the top ten will look like in the future?
Ogre Aug 17, 02:46
I haven't really had much interaction with other leaders. I have an excellent diplomat who represents the tribe so much better than I could. With this being the case I have not really been able to form any opinions on my peers.
I don't really have any predictions for the leaderboard. I have seen in the past how fluid these things can be. I will be watching with as much interest as you.
Dwarven King Aug 17, 02:54
A great leader always keeps his eyes open, right?
With that being said, is there anything you wish to add before we bring this to a close?
Ogre Aug 17, 02:59
Indeed they do.
All I can add is to wish everyone an interesting and fulfilling world. Remember that if you come across something green and nasty it's probably an Ogre.
Dwarven King Aug 17, 03:02
I'll be sure to keep that in mind!
Thank you for your time good sir, and may you and your tribe go far in this world!
Ogre Aug 17, 03:03
And the same to you.
He seems like a nice fellow. ^^
I would now like to take this time to mention the W76 chat on Skype that remains pretty active. The chat is ran by pescado456, so feel free to add him on Skype if you wanna be added!
Now then, I present to you the paper's ratings on 13 random tribe Coat of Arms!
The following is the current top ten tribes as of this post.
3: Ya Bro
We contacted * random players and asked them which tribes they thought would still be top ten in a month from now. Here were there responses.
Doubt, Ya Bro!, Axe, and Try!
HUSH, BURN, Axe
Axe, ~GUN~, Try!
And we even got a detailed response!
"Try! - Because they are try hard and they got WindOfWar31 who gangbanged me on W74 with the other 2nd biggest guy on that world at the time and some bashers. Also, they got Crowniee and some other names I think I have seen before. Doubt - No doubt here they will stay cus' they got Kapil, Turtle and other known names. Ya Bro - Because they got Knight Rizer (who everyone loves), kutipiya and some names I seen before . OGRES - Because they got me and no one wants to rim the W76 skype chat host. AXE - Because everyone wants to see vista strip and LD is cute to pat on the head, DK, the newspaper dwarf and Aethonx, among others. Best Dwarf family I ever seen."
D'aww...buttering me up. ^^ Anyway you slice it though, it looks like everyone has a different opinion on who will still be top ten. Might mean we're in for some wars soon.
It's time for the OFF-TOPIC SECTION!!! Woo!!!! This week's edition will include an anime suggestion! What anime will suggested this week? Well, it's none other than...
Short read on the beginning of the story.
Sword Art Online (SAO) is a Virtual Reality Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (VRMMORPG), released in 2022. With the Nerve Gear, a virtual reality helmet that stimulates the user's five senses via their brain, players can experience and control their in-game characters with their minds.
On November 6, 2022, the players log into SAO for the first time, and later discover that they are unable to log out. They are then informed by Akihiko Kayaba, SAO's creator, that if they wish to be free, they must reach the 100th floor of the game's tower and defeat the final boss. However, if their avatars die in-game, their bodies will also die in the real world. One of these players is Kazuto "Kirito" Kirigaya, who was chosen as one of the 1,000 beta testers in the closed beta. Since he had previous experience and knowledge of the game, he felt that he could beat the game easily
Below are descriptions of each arc in Sword Art Online.
Sword Art Online (SAO) - The first virtual game world, and the setting of the first story arc. The world takes the form of a giant floating castle called Aincrad, with 100 floors in it. Each floor has a medieval-themed setting and a dungeon with a boss, which has to be defeated before players can advance to the next higher floor. Like most RPGs, it implements a level-based system. However, after the beta testing, the game's creator activated a system to trap the players inside the game, unable to log out; if players die in-game, or the helmets they used are removed, a strong electromagnetic pulse is emitted to kill their real bodies.
Alfheim Online (ALO) - The setting for the second story arc. The player characters in the game are fairy-based, capable of flight thanks to their wings. It is a large world, divided into separate "homelands" for each of its fairy races. In Alfheim's center is a very large tree called the World Tree, and the goal of the game is to reach the top. It implements a skill-based system with players increasing their stats by developing both their combat and non-combat skills. Aincrad, the castle of the first game, is later accessible to ALO players as well.
Gun Gale Onlone (GGO) - The setting for the third story arc. It is a virtual game world with a main focus on guns, although melee weapons like lightsabers and knives also exist. From all the games it is the most competitive one as the money earned there can be exchanged for currency used in the real world, drawing high-tier professional players to make a living from it.
UnderWorld (UW) - The setting for the fourth arc of the story, the first Virtual World setting introduced to not be a game world. According to Kirito, it is graphically the most realistic of all Virtual Worlds to date. The flow of time in UnderWorld is variable and can be much faster relative to the real world's. Kikouka claimed that the current rate of its flow is 1000 times the speed of the real-world, and that the maximum rate was 1500 times the real-world's rate.
Welp, that's all I have folks! I would like to formerly apologize for making you wait so long. Not everyone is as cooperative as we hope when it comes to interviews. We will do our best to make sure editions are posted in a timely manner and we bring you all the juiciest information!!
Speak of juicy information...have you stumbled upon some little secret you weren't suppose to hear? Know of a rumor floating around the community? Anything about a tribe or player you wanna see brought to the public? Have proof of any of this? Then please, message me on Skype at Dwarven.King (I'm the guy sitting on a rock with a grey hoodie)! I promise to keep your name confidential!
And with that, I bring this edition to a close. Please, feel free to leave your comments/suggestion in the discussion thread!!!
