    THE WORLD JOURNAL ISSUE #601
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    Big Guns To Watch Out For:
    The Notorious Silver Hair Giant Prepares For Assault!

    Rumors say that the murderous giant, Larsi (previous bounty of 300 million) has been enlisting crew members around the blue seas to begin an assault on the Grand Line. Silver Hair recently destroyed the Kingdom of Thelvan on his way out of the New World using the Gura Gura no Mi. He stole their vast treasure and when Vice Admiral Ronse was sent to capture him, his battleship was destroyed by the giant, leaving the poor Marines stranded in the ocean for days!

    Eye witnesses have confirmed several pirates pledging themselves under the giant all around the world. The most notable criminal to join Larsi is "Jetstream" Minuano, a samurai from Wano Kuni who stole "Murasama", a powerful sword from his own country! The other criminals include a white haired, dark skinned swordsman named Drago. A navigator named Eve. A marksman donned in Wano Kuni armor named Crack Shot Strawhatter. And the self proclaimed "War God" Yamamoto who has long black hair and a bandaged body.

    Fearing the allegiance the World Government has issued bounties on each of them and a new one for Larsi!

    Super Rookies Make Themselves Known to The World!

    Citizens of the world I am sorry to say we have more scoundrels to watch out for than just Silver Hair. Two new strong pirate captains have revealed themselves.

    In the Grand Line Marines report the forming of "The Everything Pirates" sporting a black and white skulled jolly roger as their banner. Leading them is a devilish mink named Jobymamushi who is said to be made of rubber and is unaffected by bullets! Eye witness fisherman say they heard the mink screaming about anarchy while they were bringing in their daily hauls. Along with Joby five other strange looking individuals were seen. A zombie monkey made completely out of bones, named Xatch. An extremely shiney okama giant, Kiki. A green spiky fishmen with a very loud demeaner, Lepi. A mysterious cloaked man and a skinny old confused looking scientist, Professor Dondingo.

    The other crew calls themselves "The Backyard Pirates". They are so new that they do not even have a jolly roger yet, but that doesn't reflect their strength or their insanity! Coming from the West Blue the leader, Acaremus Weapon says that he values peace, respect and compassion, but attacked a Marine Rear Admiral Yukimura and the troops that were patrolling the town. Yukimura said that Weapon was "a powerful swordsman who wielded a claymore and had swordsmanship that rivaled his own"! Under Weapon there are four confirmed individuals. A sharp toothed, barefooted swordsman named Dagon. A female giant that was reported to be crying while attacking the Marine Troops named Ran. And a powerful marksman named Number X.
    The World Government is offering large rewards to anyone who can bring these criminals to justice!

    Story of Jade: Innocence is not lost!

    In the treacherous seas looming with impending life threatening danger, there is still some innocence left. Jade Belle, 20, is the new warrant officer for the Revolutionary army and a keen follower of "Innocent Justice" as she believes seeing things through her own eyes and making her own judgment even if they are considered “evil” by others. Is she naive? That’s what you are thinking. But you will have to re-think after you hear this.

    Jade was a Marine before she joined this infamous group. Yes folks! A Marine! As high ranking as the rank of a Commodore, she has done her part in protecting the peace and calm of innocent souls. This little Tontatta who is not taller than 10 cm but has a heart of gold, inherits the will of her father Henry Belle who died saving her from being captured by a pirate group. His dying words were “There is bad in the world, but anyone can be good too” which forms the core of her vision. Being born as a Tontatta in the Island of Dressrosa, Jade has seen many ups and downs, from racial discrimination, being captured by pirates to be sold in Auction Houses and helplessly seeing her comrades die before her tiny eyes. Yet, she has persistently persevered to see the good inside people instead of judging them outright. This was not an easy task! She has been mocked and criticized for it but she is a fighter! Working in the Marines was in fact the eye opener for her as she uncovered shady affairs swept under the radar like a list of Slaves and Auction prices, including her own race! That’s true, folks! She has discovered these shameful documents during her term of service which made her question this organization as the pinnacle of law and order in the society. Subsequently, she resigned from her position and showed interest in the cause of the Revolutionaries and seeks to use this path to fulfill her goals.

    The Revolutionary Group! An Odd Mix of Identities.

    The Revolutionary Army is in full sail for this grand opening. They are not far from the competition and pack some power houses of their own. Let’s take a look:

    We have two new Warrant Officers.

    For starters, we have Jade Belle, an ardent follower in "Innocent Justice". Carrying a sword, much bigger than her own size, she uses the famous “Flowering Sword” style. She will slice you up before you know it!

    The second promotion that we have is Kellan who will be sharing the same rank and power as Jade Belle as the other Warrant Officer. Unlike his colleague, he’s an astonishingly gigantic human with a height of 15 ft, known for this epithet of ‘Fallen Angel”. Rumor says he has beaten a Celestial Dragon in his youth. Kellan is also a swordsman specializing in not one but two swords. Watch out folks!

    Among the other new recruits, we have the red-headed teen Ross and the mysterious Suterusu who are both assigned to Kellan’s division and will be aiding their seniors whip up some major storm in the seas. One of them even carries a metal bat which is quite unusual in a world filled with Devil Fruits and swords but we will have to wait and see if that will be enough.

    Of course since these revolutionaries are opposing the World Government there are rewards issued to anyone who brings them to justice!

    An Interview With Some Of Our Heroes!
    Ein

    Lee
    [​IMG]
    This week we got the chance to interview some of our very own heroes! Yes that's right, the Marines that were recently promoted gave us their thoughts on their recent promotions!

    Ein, leader of the 159th Branch @Problematic
    "There's no doubt that this will end poorly. I've seen it with my own eye." There's a short pause here. "Eyes. I've seen it with my own eyes. Nothing good will come of this. People will die. It could be me. It could be other people. It could be hundreds of others. But..." There's an audible, languished sigh from her. "...fate is inescapable and I'm prepared to play my part in it."

    "If you see me. If you see my ship. If you see anyone or anything associated with me at all... I suggest you give us a wide berth. You won't be pleased with the consequences if you get too close."

    Lee, leader of the 169th Branch @Major Lee Hung
    "It's not me that the Navy has faith in. It's my Justice, and my will to see it through. This is just a stepping stone for me, the beginning of something greater.

    My men and I are the dominant power on the Seas right now. We will make the world into a safer place, where innocent people won't have to lie awake in fear of scum who do as they please. Mark my words, we will punish Evil without exception."

    THE WORLD JOURNAL ISSUE #602
    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    From the sandy deserts of Arabasta!

    The heart of the desert Arabasta is currently going through a huge crisis! This is the third year that the country hasn’t received a single drop of rain. Well most of the country, not including the capital of Alubarna. The people are in misery and praying for some miracle to get rid of this intense drought which is impacting their daily life. The King of the country, Nefertari Cobra-sama has remained silent when we asked about the situation and we were told by the royal guard that he is going through a mental turmoil for which he won’t be able to see us anymore. Is this because of genuine worry towards the welfare of his country or is there some other reason involved? We hope the king takes some steps soon as there is a widespread unrest among the subjects, some even doubting his worthiness as a King.
    Nevertheless we did try to get a gift for our readers – A double sized poster of our beloved Princess Vivi, but to our disappointment her maids informed us that she was sick. We hope for a speedy recovery for our lovely Princess!
    When the royal family is unavailable to help its subjects, there is still one guardian angel left to save grace. Sir Crocodile, the royal shichibukai has yet again brilliantly displayed his capabilities by taking down a notorious pirate named Puppu who tried to pillage the capital city.
    During our visit in the kingdom, we also spotted a ship hosting the flag of the Silver Hair pirates lead by the infamous giant, Silver Hair Larsi himself with a bounty of 590.400.000! That’s a great number! As we didn’t believe he was interested in the perfumes obviously, we decided to take a closer look. The pirate crew comprises of 8 members including the giant himself. However we only spotted the giant along with his trusted first mate, Minuano-san on the ship stationed near the capital. As for the other crewmates, there were various reports of spotting them separately in western and eastern blocks. Undoubtedly the giant is up to some funny business.

    Drought, general unrest, king’s reluctance, Princess’s sickness, appearance of the Silver Hair Pirates – Arabasta is definitely taking the entire spotlight for now.

    Everything Lost? A ship that shot up.
    As we were following the peculiar pirate group calling themselves as the Everything Pirates, we witnessed a horrifying sight that shook us to the core. It might be a great relief for the rest of the world knowing that Jobymamushi, the pirate who recently earned a huge bounty of 184.950.000 is dead along with the rest of the crew mates but after spectating the sight with our very own eyes, we couldn’t help but feel sorry for the crew.
    The Ship left from Twin Peaks and after a long and tiring journey made its way to the island of Jaya. But surprisingly, they didn’t dock their ship and instead stopped midway in the ocean. Maintaining a sufficient distance we stayed in our positions not letting them out of our sight for one moment. You won’t believe what we saw next! Just from underneath the Free and Easy, a huge pillar of water came out like a raging monster having his sleep disturbed, and pushed the ship upwards! The pressure was so strong that we couldn’t even blink. It seems Mother nature has taken a stand to wipe off evil. Hey Hey, but isn't that the job of the Marines? But we are sure, they don't complain. The poor ship was thrown away by the force of the water and we are yet to locate its remaining.

    A group of hooded figures.
    Earlier this week there was a sighting of a huge number of Revolutionary officers in Twin Peaks Lighthouse. Reports say that the ships started arriving from the early morning. We have been able to identify some of the faces and surprisingly the high rankers Jade and Kellan are part of the gathering. Now minna-san this is highly unusual for this clandestine group to hold such meetings on Islands that attracts a lot of attention, Twin Peaks one of them as it is the very gateway to the Grand Line. Of course their meeting was foiled with the arrival of a couple of pirate groups as they sailed off together shortly after. There have been sightings of Revo officers making inter ship jumps in the middle of the sea. Their destination seems to be Cactus Island. We wonder what their goal could be in this specific island known for showing their hospitality.

    Backyard Pirates. Stirring trouble?
    The captain of the Backyard pirates, Arcameus Weapon had landed himself in quite a pickle! After moments of setting foot on Cactus Island, he and his crew seem to be targeted by the citizens… with PITCHFORKS! We wonder what could be the reason for such peculiar behavior. As usual, the pirates were greeted by the warm and welcoming people and treated like guests with everything they had to offer. Yet, Weapon seemed to be having a heated conversation with the Mayor, Igarappoi himself. It seems he showed his true face for the criminal he is and thus making the mayor concerned about the safety of the citizens and that is what led to the whole Island take up arms against them. Among the Backyard pirates, other notable members include Dagon and Charles.

    ~~~✿~~~

    The Navy makes its move!

    But “oh no!” You might be saying to yourself..”with all this Pirate and Revolutionary Action, who will possibly keep us civilians safe?!” But rest assured! The Navy is as determined as ever to bring these law-breakers to Justice! In particular, they’ve had two promising new branches formed, under the Commands of Rear Admiral Lee and Commander Einhardt! We were able to get you the exclusive on these two last time, but we had no idea that they would be already leaving such a major impression! These two branches are sure to strike fear in the hearts of criminals everywhere!

    169th Across the East Blue!
    For those of you who haven’t heard of Shells Town, it’s a quiet little island in East Blue under the command of the Navy Captain Axe-Hand Morgan. This past week, Shells Town was sent into an excited frenzy! The locals of the island can’t stop talking about Rear Admiral Lee and his branch of super-Marines! Apparently, the newly enstalled Rear Admiral publicly threatened the local Captain Morgan! We went undercover for the exclusive scoop:

    **All citizens that we privately interviewed asked that their identities be kept anonymous**

    Citizen 1: “Oi, yeah, I saw it from my window. That huge Monster lifted Captain Morgan clear off the ground and threatened him to his face. Morgan looked like a scolded puppy after that. He shoulda done a lot more than threaten, if you ask me...”

    Citizen 2: “Yep it’s true! These Marines are all monsters! I was watching them from my window and I saw one of them fall from the sky, hit the ground like a cannonball, and get up like it was nothing...they’re freaks I tell you!”

    Citizen 3: “Yeah...the Fishman almost tore the Captain to shreds, and one of his men also almost assaulted Morgan’s son.... But you shouldn’t be asking all these questions around here...” **the Interview was interrupted by his son coming in and crying** “Oi son!! For the last time, there’s no such thing as a Rear Admiral Lee action figure!! If you ask again, you’re grounded for life!!”

    By the time we reached Shells Town, the 169th Fleet has already set out to Sea. Looks like their hard work isn't done yet! We were unable to reach any of the 169th Marines for comment, but one thing is certain: they left a huge impression on Shells Town!! Asking the townsfolk, Rear Admiral Lee and one of his lower ranking friend had apparently already set out to fight the great terror of the East Blue, Fleet Admiral Don Krieg! Mina-san, let's wish our heroes luck!

    The East Blue has also been freed from dastardly pirate, "Iron Mace" Alvida this week as Commodore Vulpes was sent by Rear Admiral Lee to clear out her base. He tactfully arrived in the middle of a battle that the Pirates were having and swiftly eliminated the evil pirates. How lucky we are that we have such strong Marines to depend on!

    More on their story as it develops.

    The 159th Branch: All Hail the Queen of the Marines!
    If you thought the story on Shells Town was exciting, you’re in for a huge treat! The 159th branch under Commander Einhardt recently landed at Las Camp, and had set sail for the West Blue! While they didn’t make as much of a splash as the 169th, rumors report that some of the locals found themselves enchanted by Einhardt!

    Citizen 1: “Oi yeah, she’s a woman of such legendary beauty that it seems even the beasts themselves fall in love with her! She’s already managed to tame a White Wolf with her beauty!”

    Citizen 2: “Yeah it’s true, I saw her with my own eyes! When I was watching her through binoculars-oh, uh” **He stops to clear his throat** “I mean, when my neighbor was watching her through binoculars, he couldn’t believe her staggering beauty! It’s no wonder all those Marines follow her lead!”

    And that’s not all! Our inside sources have confirmed that Einhardt is in fact in possession of the 1 in a million ability: Conqueror’s Haki! For those of you that don’t know, this is an ability said only to be possessed by those destined to rule! There’s no doubt about it, this means Einhardt is the woman destined to become the Queen of the Navy!! Even though such a rank doesn’t exist yet, we’re sure that the higher ups will get right on that!

    That’s all on the Navy for now! Sleep soundly citizens, and we’ll be sure to brief you on the most explosive info again next issue!

    THE WORLD JOURNAL ISSUE #603
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    169th Across the East Blue - Part 2!
    The poor people of Orange Town had sought to create a new place to live after their previous homes were destroyed by pirates. That is how this lovely modern place came to be! But this was not to last as the horrible Pirate gang leader, Buggy D Clown recently stole the town away from the people. But let us rejoice now!

    Marine heroes @Capt_NakedPanda , @Frayzah , and @Emperor Cross were able to free the town from Buggy's grasp! We were even lucky enough to get an interview with these proud warriors of justice! Here is what they had to say:

    Reo: "Ahm Ahm... As you can see from the destruction around, this was not a peaceful mission and we were forced to act in force by the pirates' brutality to prevent further casualties..."

    Frayzah: "I advise you reporters to listen very carefully because I won't repeat myself. My name is Jimmy Frayzah. Former vigilante, current Marine Captain.

    Our team from the 169th Branch was sent here to engage some wack-jobs with a circus fetish, The Buggy Pirates. Led by Commodore Reo and also including Captain Hassan here, our team was successful and the pirates were on the receiving end of the True Justice that they deserve. The pirate known as Cabaji The Acrobat met his fate by my swords when he resisted capture and judging by the fact that they are standing beside me right now and not dead, Heheheh, my comrades were also triumphant in their encounters. Anything you wish to add Captain Hassan?”

    Shaarib: "GRRRRRR !"

    Such fierce justice! It is great to have strong men protecting us! There was more to say from, Reo, the highest ranking marine.

    Reo: "Marines are not trained in public speaking! They are trained to fight and protect you and everybody from harm! Because they did their work the whole Buggy pirate crew is dead and gone for good. However, we were forced to use extreme measure to do our job. Talking about that, we didn't do our job perfectly... It took us so long until we come and help this town even though there were countless request for help. Furthermore, we couldn't protect everybody from the evil hands of the pirates and people fell victims to Buggy's brutality. For that we apologize and ask to forgive us if you find a way to do so in your hearths.

    Offering these excuses and showing you the destruction level caused by pirates, I vow to stop this madness called piracy! I promise every single victim of piracy and those who live in fear of piracy, I will find One Piece and destroy it to put an end to this insanity called the Pirate Era and start the Great Era of Peace! Thank you for your time..."

    Wow! You heard it here first folks! The 169th will end the era of Piracy!

    Utter Chaos!!! Don Krieg’s Pirate Fleet Annihilated!
    Well folks, do we have a story for you!! Last week we brought you the inside scoop on Rear Admiral Lee of the 169th Navy Branch! @Major Lee Hung and his Marines has left an incredible impression on the people of Shells’ Town, but we had no idea things were going to get this crazy!!

    We were following the Rear Admiral our to Sea when a sudden harsh wind caught our sails and we lost sight of the Marine ship. We tried desperately to catch up to them again, but the wind had taken us too far away.

    Just when we were about to give up hope of getting an interview with the Rear Admiral, we started hearing what sounded like cannonfire in the distance. We followed the noises until we saw huge clouds of smoke...

    By the time we reached the scene, it was complete and utter chaos! Sinking ships in every direction! The Sea was littered with debris and flames! The sky blackened with smoke! It was as if we had just missed a great battle!

    Among the chaos we saw a Navy ship still floating, so we sailed over to it to get the scoop! The ship is one of many belonging to @Rorouni Zoro G-169, called “The Keshia-Tai.”
    The Marines there wouldn’t tell us why they hadn’t left the scene with Lee, but we did get some interesting pieces of information.

    Marine: “I’m not sure we should be talking to you, but...what you’re seeing in the ocean is what’s left of Don Krieg’s Pirate Fleet. We destroyed the entire thing.”

    Interviewer: What??? Are you serious??? So you’ve captured Don Krieg?!

    Marine: “....The Krieg Armada won’t trouble the Seas of the East Blue anymore. Citizens of the East Blue can rest a bit easier now.”

    That’s right folks! Rear Admiral Lee and his Marines have destroyed the biggest Pirate Fleet of the East Blue!!

    And that’s not all, we managed to cone across a Pirate straggler floating among the debris! We gave him a ride to the Kesshi-Tai where he was taken into custody, rest assured. But we managed learn something even more interesting from him!

    Pirate: “It was supposed to be easy. We got a tip that some Navy Rear Admiral was coming for us, so Krieg has all 48 of our ships sail out to meet him. When we found him, we were even more excited when we saw that they had only brought 2 ships. ‘This is going to be a walk in the park,’ we thought...”

    Interviewer: And then? What happened?

    Pirate: “The Ocean itself turned against us....a humongous Whirlpool destroyed half of our fleet, and then the other half just started...sinking...randomly...”

    Interviewer: What??? How is that possible??

    Pirate: “I don’t know. But then I saw him..the Fishman jumped onto our ship and fought us all by himself. He was too strong, we couldn’t do anything against him...I jumped off the ship. I wasn’t about to lose my life over this. That Fishman is a Monster...”

    You heard right, even the Ocean itself bends to Rear Admiral Lee’s will!! The entire Don Krieg Pirate armada was defeated by two Navy ships!!! We can’t wait to meet up with Rear Admiral Lee in person and ask him about his opinion on all of this!!

    More on Lee and his Marines, next issue!!!

    An Up and Coming Bounty Hunter or a Cold Blooded Killer?
    A formerly imprisoned Bounty Hunter is making a name for himself in the East Blue. Is he on the side of good or evil? It's hard to say. Our source from the World Government tells us that he was recently captured on Syrup Village by Captain Smoker. It was said he murdered of the head chef on Baratie and several other cooks, but the allegations may have been questionable as the head chef was once a retired pirate! This of course is a complicated matter and the Marines made sure he served his time.

    However, once allowing to return to Syrup Village the Bounty Hunter, @IceTimeXI defended the island from an attack of the Black Cat Pirates!

    "We sure were lucky!" says Mrs. Tamanegi "This group of serious looking men in black coats came to our little village asking a bunch of questions looking for a WANTED criminal. It turned out that the man was actually on the island! My little boy say the whole thing. Those bounty hunter men are our towns heroes now!"

    There you have it folks, is Ice a cold blooded murderer or a hero of justice aiding the Marines? It may be hard to say, but one thing is for sure if you see a tall brown skinned man with a box haircut it is best to stay out of his way!

    THE WORLD JOURNAL ISSUE #604
    ---------------------------------------------------------

    A City in Ruin...
    After being taken over by an evil group known as "The Big Helm Pirates", Spider Miles of the North Blue became a wasteland of toxic factories. Reports were coming in of streets being filled with litter. Brutes terrorizing inhabitants, and water not clean for public consumption. It was the duty of our very own World Government to clean up the sludge, apprehend the pirates and save our innocent people! And that is what they did!

    Mikazuki, the leader of the Big Helm Pirates was taken down on his home turf. The sight of our glorious government hero's power drove off the scorn that plagued the land. The people were once again happy and free!

    However, this was not to last... The government troops set out to regroup with more navy ships and craftsmen to help rebuild and protect the city. But while they were gone, another Pirate attacked! The nefarious Trafalgar Law saw the town as ripe for the picking. He and his crew saught after the remaining treasure that Mikazuki left. The pirates massacred the town and all of its inhabitants seeking what the samurai left.

    I'm sorry to say that by the time the navy returned with all of their men and supplies... there was nothing left of the town, but a burning building and piled up corpses! "huuugh!" Just the thought of the villainous Heart Pirate crew sends shivers down my spine.

    Navy Vice Admiral, Doberman, who commanded the repair crew has assured us that he will apprehend the Heart Pirates and have them pay for their crimes! His men are working now, to repair and rebuild the once prosperous city!

    Notice Notice Island!

    Soon to be the new tourist hot spot for their brews, Notice Island is suddenly the talk of the North Blue when it comes to good news!

    The quiet island town was apparently were the dastardly pirate, Bellamy the Hyena had been hiding out this entire time! The brave and strong people of Notice were somehow courageous enough to group together and overturn the rule of the Bellamy Pirates.

    When the news team arrived, the World Government had been handed over the defeated pirates. It even looked like their base had been completely blown up!

    The news team decided to interview eye-witnesses and split up

    in a bar:
    Maggie: (a mute, fortune taller had this to say reveal)
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    (prosperity)

    Barney: "the indistinguishable" muttered: GlllerBadss DEfavenSHleffersss!!?!
    (to which was assured by others that heard it to be the greatest most brilliant words ever spoken by man....)

    Bart: ( a local drunk had this to say): Mountain Lions!!! God no, that BORT is full of shit and allays messing up the details... Not mountain lions... Mountain Cats! wild feral viscous creatures.. would terrorize the mountainside at night! Always keeping me up with there excessive Noises.... BAAAaaaa baaaaa (Bleating noises) They would call out all hours of the nights... BBaaaa baaaa (Bleating noises)... I used to be a big shot miner living in the ...Rural district mining..office.. Annd every night these Crazy Cats would come down the mountain and keep me up all night with there vicious hunting calls... BAAAAaaaa baaa.... but every night I went out I couldn't find them, I could just hear them taunting me!!! one evening just before sunset I got my pick axe, and waited on top of my roof, ready to surprise the cats! but as the sunset I noticed some funny shadows on the rocks behind my house, when all of a sudden a Cat jumped from the shadows on the rocks and appeared before me... it had a beard, round horns atop its head, chewing grass... what a vile disgusting killing machine.. I lept from my roof top and felled the beast in one mighty blow, blood splashed out as I pulled my pick from its neck... As you may well know, when you kill a mountain cat they release a pheromone that makes the others wild and more feral! so rather than wait to be surrounded I took the battle too them, I went back too the rocks behind the office and found a small outcropping that went back into the mountains.. I snuck up the trail slaying cats left and right BBBaaa's and blood by the end of the night I was covered in blood, only suffered a few injuries and was somehow at the top of the mountain... The old chief quickly tossed me in jail... something about killing his goats.. he didn't believe me that the cats probably did it! I lost my mining business and have been here ever since.. prolly for the best since the "new chief" took over shortly after and the mine closed down... Yep I'm the hero this town needs, but they'll never know it... (Bart tells this story nightly)

    Bart starts to trail off into more gibberish just as his drink runs dry... the old fool turns to the wall and starts his story all over again...

    The second journalist managed to make her way up to the working class sector of the Island and got a couple of "exclusives" from the shop owners perspective...

    Hermes: No comment, I am not at liberty nor legally allowed to discuss an "on-going" investigation, sorry, no comment....

    Lisa: (who lives mid-town but works port side): MmHhhmMm! look at you shug..(hitting on the interviewer) what are you planning on spending your next paycheck on..cause I'm sure i can show the "best" money can buy ;) ... oh..what? yeah.. things are great here now, totally better... so about my offer ;) ....

    And finally with an exclusive statement from the newly appointed Chief of Notice- ex-marine officer/Rebel Rouser Responsible for the Revolt against Bellamy and Co.. CARL...

    Carl: With the help of the WG, and the strength of the inhabitants of Notice... We will.. from this day on.. start to rebuild ourselves into the trade industrial hot spot we once were...

    The town is now safe and it looks like it will remain that way thanks to the aide of our wonderful government. Take it from this reporter, the famous Notice Beer is delicious! If you can't get over to the island don't worry! Exports will be arriving soon throughout the blue seas.

    The Backyard Pirates Grand Line Massacre!
    After a warning was issued to our news team, we went to go check out Cactus Island where a horrible travesty was reported to have been taken place. Upon arriving at the island we were welcomed by a group of people who had sailed to the island and found a lone survivor from a massacre!

    The people that now lived on the island were nice and sought to rebuild from the destruction that had fell upon Cactus Island. But what was this destruction? And why did it occur? Well to find out the answers we were fortunate enough to interview the lone survivor, a young woman:

    Survivor: "Pirates came to the island.. This peaceful island.. *sob* ... We just wanted to share our happiness with them, but that was not enough.. They wanted our riches, and when we tried to refuse them they attacked! First they killed a few, and when we gave them all we had.. They.. They did not believe us, they thought we had immense riches.. So even if we had given all we could.. They still slaughtered us like cattle and stole a precious friend of mine.. they took her saying they were going to do this and that to her on the ship.."

    Reporter: "I'm so sorry to hear that miss. ... Would you please tell the people of the world who did this?"

    Survivor: "the backyard pirates..."

    W O W! I've heard tales that this evil and despicable crew is growing as it terrorizes the grand line. Please be on the lookout for the pirate captain, Acaremus Weapon @Mirror D. Roogy and his cohorts. If you see a pirate ship with a howling wolf figurehead contact the authorities immediately!

    New Bounties have been issued for the three Backyard Pirates reported to have committed the massacre:

    Lost At Sea...
    We've been trying to reach contact with the heroic 159th Marine Branch lead by Lieutenant Einhardt Mic Nihoff @Problematic for several months now. Sent out on a mission in the West Blue, the small navy unit was expected to return sometime this past week, but they have yet to return... What could have possibly happened to our valiant and loved troops? The Marine HQ was sent out a small search party lead by Commodore Kibin to try and find out...

    Dear Xatchy Advice Column:

    The Role Play world of Oro Jackson can be great and wondrous time! However just like in the real world, problems, conflicts, things happen that sometimes are greater than we can handle as an individual. Having issues with your captain? In love with marine and your a pirate? Going through the transition from sentient beast to human? whatever might be troubling, stressing, or worrying your Role Play, fear not. Xatchy is here! As the oldest Person in the RP (as in fictional years) I have seen and dealt with it all. Don't go on another day with a knot in your stomach or a weight on your shoulders. Get your problems off your chest with the first ever RP advice or help column!

    1st Question:
    "Dear Hone-yaro- Xatchy,

    I was wondering the best way to break bones, specifically. -A-Asking for a friend! Haha...

    Sincerely,
    :wipesweat: My name? No way I'm going to write my name down! That's crazy!"


    Dear "My name? No way I'm going to write my name down! That's crazy!",

    Firstly I would advise your "friend" and remind them "STICKS AND STONES MAY BREAK MY BONES, BUT WORDS WILL NEVER HURT ME!" Violence is never the answer. However I would say the best way to break bones is the same way I would break Cyborg Parts... Just have a DPR two tiers higher than the durability and hit unimpeded ;)

    Sincerely, Xatchy


    2nd Question:

    "Dear Criminal Scum Xatch,

    With the recent decrease in temperatures that will arrive as a result the Death of the Flame of Piracy, I was wondering if you could give me some advice on how to stay warm during the approaching winter?

    Up until now I have relied solely on a thin layer of blubber to insulate myself, but I fear that the impending Winter of Justice may even be too much for me.

    Is there anything I can do to avoid a cold this Winter? "

    Sincerely,

    Anonymous"

    Dear "Anonymous",

    I could understand how unsettling this might be but fear not my blubberous buddy! Due to recent world government restrictions being lifted on many of it's highly profitably, but EXTREMELY hazardous for the environment industrial plants commissioned by the likes of DR.Vega Punk, Caesar Clown, Judge, Wapol, Doflamingo, Etc. the list goes on.. Toxic sludge and chemicals are flowing into the oceans and sky's unimpeded for precious smile, s.a.d., growth research, cloning, etc.... entire islands are being deforested or fracked for precious resources, or to make way for industrialization. The core geography of the earth is being altered to better monopolize the sea's... due to all that the World Government is doing to destroy the earth and all its inhabitants, the process of global warming has sped up quite considerably! so much to the point that it could very well counteract this so called "winter of justice"

    If that's not enough to warm your frozen heart, don't forget about the spark that could ignite from the Revolutionary Army!.... LOLOLOL that was hard to say with a straight face

    Sincerely, Xatchy


    3rd Question


    "Help, i have a problem with a senile skeleton running around causing a ruckus. Any tips on how to stop him?

    Regards, Big Big"


    Dear "Big Big",

    It's been my experience that Senile Skeletons are extremely stubborn and neigh unstoppable, they are loud, disruptive, rude, with little tact, they are a pestilence that of which has plagued the world for eternity and there is next too nothing that can be done to stop them. Once they attach themselves to something they are usually stuck for life, that being said it is rumored that "Medals" "Bonus XP" "Shop Discounts" other things of this nature has been known to subside most of the negative effects brought on by them. Hope this helps

    Sincerley Xatchy

    4th Question


    Dear Xatchi , rev. army laks activity. Most members are AFK. help a brotha

    Dear "Brotha",
    Maybe you should erect a giant statue of your strongest member, people are attracted to leaders of great stature and power! along with this run add's with the same person "helping out" and acting like a "normal person" pictures of them doing everyday things, and helping "the little guy" . Build your brand around your figure head. The marines have "Lee", The CP "Diakai", The Pirates "Larsi" all strong powerful figureheads, surly your strongest member would look strong and imposing in recruitment posters?

    Sincerely Xatchy


    5th Question

    Dear Xatchy, how to show that I'm better than ALL THESE SCRUBS at RP?

    Regards, Best RPer on OJ


    Dear "Best RPer on OJ",

    In my experience the best RP'ers players on OJ Frequently hound their opponents on general chat for being slow, require 48hour responses, Rap, have little regard for rules, constantly remind people of their greatness, don't listen too review advice. If you do these things you will probably be one of the best RP'ers on OJ...at least that's what they say. sounds to me like you could very well already be on the road to greatness!

    Sincerely xatchy


    That's all for the very first edeition of "Dear Xatchy" I hope my advice hits home and helps you become the best RP'er you can be, and hopefully by the courage of these five brave anonymous submissions will inspire you to seek the help you need! Remember... If I could overcome death, you can overcome whatever little struggle you have in your life....

    Please submit all questions to via PM to @Portgas D. Xatch
