    Offensive Battlepoints: #1
    Defensive Battlepoints: #2
    Overall Battlepoints: #1

    Synopsis:
    Like the famous western gunslinger Jhon Whane, they always shoot to kill. Nym. tipped the scale in their favor, with OPs on the 6-7th, 13-14th, and on the 22-24th they took the lead in the war.

    Overall Battlepoints: #2
    Synopsis:

    Similar to Nymeria's inactivity issues last month, this time it was Nameless's turn.
    With at least 4 players being internalized, two ghosting(One who had 60+ cities), an abundant amount of inactives and ghosts led to a rocky road this month, along with one player choosing to move over to Nymeria.

    5. Lunch Break
    One of the two TOP SECRET Questions I asked each alliance representative was about their choice of lunch. To pay homage to the January Issue where we looked at different breakfast choices, this time I decided to visit the next most important meal of the day!

    The Prompt:
    Your friend is visiting from out of town, and has chosen a restaurant to meet you at for lunch.
    Before being given the menu, a server approaches and tells you and your friend,
    "What would you like to order? Our chef can cook anything your heart desires."
    Q: Please choose an order(It must include something to eat, as well as drink)


    1)Nymeria
    A big plate of Pelmeni, which is a long time favorite of mine paired with a glass of wodka.

    2)Nameless

    A Chicken liver pate to start. For the main course, a Duck breast with a scrumptious plum sauce, paired with a fine merlot. For desert, a chocolate brownie with cream sauce.

    3)No Name

    Sushi and Sashimi with a bottle of Greco di Tufo (Italian) Wine.

    4)Phoenix Reborn

    Spicy Beef Noodle Soup "PHO" with Coconut Water

    5)The Wraith

    Shawarma with Sangria, it shows how everything from different cultures can come together.

    6)No Name Ringers

    Spear-Fished Octopus, dried in the sun and grilled with fresh bread, tzatziki with a greek salad, and at least three cold Heinekens.

    7)The Black Knights

    As Greek Mythology goes, Ambrosia and Nectar. It's the perfect meal to continue fighting on the battlefield, even if the war goes on for another couple decades.

    9)Misfits and Nondescripts

    For a starter, I'd like olives with a slice or two of ciabatta bread. The main course would consist of a salmon fillet with new potatoes, baby carrots and green beans with a buttery sauce. Lemon Cheesecake for dessert!
    For a drink, I'd choose a bottle of the very best Merlot as good food needs good wine!

    nice job on the newspaper once again.

    Everyone post your favorite song of the ones submitted below :).

    my favorite song has to be the Nymeria one, for multiple reasons:
    1. It works realy well if you take the context of the song and match it with the recent events (nymeria(usa/uk) beating nameless(Iraq), so the video works perfect for that:
    2. Sabaton is my favorite band/artist
    3. I chose it (some good old narcissism never hurts :D)

    I vote for adding the song choices every month, and then let people vote for their favorite song. Alliances are not allowed the pick the same song twice to keep the variation going.
