Editors note MissNyx

It's been a bit of an interesting week, this one. We've even managed to witness a crew get bought, sold and bought within a space of an hour or two.

We have also witnessed the newest addition to our Bootleggers gaming experience with a new update from BSF2000 himself. So we take only a brief look into this new feature as telling too much will ruin the whole point of a new feature... to be discovered by the players.

So this week we also cover a look into how a BL-Marriage can turn disastrous, another small addition to the saving time, our weekly Behind The Name and of course the weekly segment from Franchise.

We would also like to take this moment to give a big thank you to ShootMeNow1 for donating money to the Buzz to continue with our Buzz Contests! So check out Buzz Contest #4 for a new chance to win some free cash!

And of course another thank you to those who sent in their freelance articles, especially those that reached publication. Keep them coming!

If you wish to become a writer for the Bootleggers Buzz, please send a sample into keeping in mind your spelling, grammar, punctuation and choice of topic. Refer back to Issue#10 for extra help in the article named Your Ticket to the Buzz Forum. If you recently sent in a sample and never received a reply back, then we are sorry for the delay. It has been hectic in real-life and resulted in further delay in going through those samples, but they WILL be seen to within 1 day as of now. Thank you for your patience and enjoy this issue!
