Editors note Mikamon

Welcome to issue number 112 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

What a week. So many things have happened here on Bootleggers in the past seven days. Our writers have been writing non stop in order to get as much of it as possible into this jam packed Buzz so you, the reader, can sit back and enjoy all the things that happened.

The first thing that stirred up Bootleggers this week was of course the addition of a crew spot. BSF2000 and the Elite Guard had finally decided that it was time to give the players that what they had asked for: More crews. In the end, a total of five crewspots would be added to the game, creating a new maximum of fifteen crews. As new crews are beginning to form, we are excited to see what will happen next in the ever changing realm of crews.

Of course, the Buzz did its best to report on the events concerning the crews. In the end, we managed to cover and write down most of it. However we could have missed some events. Everything that was left out should be covered in the Weekly Flash, which is also there for you so you can get your quick overview of this week.

This week also knew bloodshed as New York State Don WorLocK went on a killing spree to ensure he would be the next person to receive the Nation Don invite. As he went off his list of targets, which included three other State Dons, his spree was suddenly stopped as Casimir started a spree of his own and killed all remaining State Dons, including the bloodthirsty WorLocK.

Apart from the real action, the Organized Crime page also got a small update. It now shows your recent Organized Crime history, letting you know the state it was in, the vault content and the people that participated in the crime.

As always, we have our weekly segments for you. The earlier mentioned 'Weekly Flash' is in this week's issue and 'Telling It Like It Is' and 'Behind the Name' are there again as well. 'A Year Back' has been postponed one more issue so that we are actually looking one entire year (52 weeks) in the past.

We are continuing our hunt for writers. If you are interested in becoming a writer then read the re-printed version of "So You Think You Can Write?" in issue 97. Please submit a sample article of a recent Bootleggers event via selecting Application in the "Send a" located on the bottom of each Buzz. Remember to mind your grammar, punctuation and spelling. If you are dead before we've contacted you, please submit the same article all over again. Your articles will be reviewed as quickly as possible but please have patience, we won't forget about you.

This week was action filled and the Buzz did its best to put that action into the articles. Hopefully you'll enjoy this issue just as much as you enjoyed this week's action.

Enjoy the read and stay safe. See you all next week!
