Player Of The Week: Carlini

Klouwe: Hello Carlini! ZIP became this week a major power. Congratulations! Short after the foundation, ZIP had 27 members and 108 mil. Now ZIP has 31 members and 168 mil. How you achieved this rapid growth without much recruitment?

Carlini: Heya, the recruitment has obviously added a majority of those points. Everyone in ZIP is putting the effort in to grow and keep that toal rising, I generally look at village count more than points as it shows a more true power.

Klouwe: OZ and Legend are also part of the Z family. What is their specific relation with ZIP?

Carlini: Well I guess technically in TW terms, very close allies. OZ are run their own way due to disputes long in the past but we try to work as a single unit as much as possible. Legend is a place to grow before advancing to ZIP, life is generally easier but all will make it in eventually.

Klouwe: RASP could show the previous period positive stats versus The Union and this week it appears that they are growing again. Is this just some temporary luck for RASP? Or do you think that the fronts are stabilizing?

Carlini: The fronts are obviously becoming more definded. It was always said early on in the war just wait for the fronts to be fully determinded and then the real war begins. I am obviously more concerned with the west front and over here, apart from the breakaway {RASP} tribes, there is really only me and a few villages left until a true front is all that remains.

Klouwe: Recently W11 got half prized nobles. Have you voted “yes” or “no”? And will it have a big influence on the world or not?

Carlini: I voted yes, not that I really need more nobles, just that it makes the game more fun. More nobles means the world will finish sooner so I can join the RL game again

Klouwe: If you could pick one celebrity to go on a date… Who would you choose?

Carlini: I hate to be that guy…. but it has to be the beautiful Cheryl Cole. Not for the reasons other guys would want to though. I support Newcastle, she is a Geordie, Hawt.

Klouwe: Thank you very much for the interview Tiger!

Since last blog, Legend has been added to the ZIP F. This results into ZIP F. being plotted with the green (#3) color.


Challenge of the Week

The challenge of last week (best joke) is won by BLOODHAWK91

A Illinois man left the snowballed streets of Chicago for a vacation in Florida. His wife was on a business trip and was planning to meet him there the next day. When he reached his hotel, he decided to send his wife a quick e-mail.Unable to find the scrap of paper on which he had written her e-mail address, he did his best to type it in from memory. Unfortunately, he missed one letter and his note was directed instead to an elderly preacher’s wife,whose husband had passed away only the day before. When the grieving widow checked her e-mail, she took one look at the monitor, let out a piercing scream, and fell to the floor. At the sound, her family rushed into the room and saw this note on the screen:

Dearest Wife,
Just got checked in. Everything prepared for your arrival tomorrow.

Your Loving Husband.

PS. Sure is hot down here.

Other notable entries were from:


So a pirate walks into a bar with a steering wheel on the front of his pants. Naturally, the bartender says “Hey, whats up with that wheel? Isn’t it annoying?” to which the pirate replied “Arrgghh!!! It’s drivin’ me nuts!!”


Two Irish guys are fishing. The first guy reels in his line and sees that he’s snagged an old bottle. As he’s taking it off the hook, a genie pops out and promises to grant him one wish. “Turn the lake into beer,” he says. The genie goes “Poof!” and the lake turns into beer. He says to the other guy, “So what do you think?” The other guy says, “You jerk. Now we’ve got to piss in the boat.”


Three men came to Heavens Gate, there the Apostle Peter stopped them. He said, “There is only one space left in heaven, so please come to this tent on the side one at a time and tell me how you died. Then I will choose who deserves the space.”

The first man is taken to the tent, and he starts telling Peter how he died. “I was sure my wife was cheating on me, so I came home early from work one day to check on things. My wife was in the shower, and I started to search through the house. I checked in every room in every imaginable hiding place, but I didnt find anything. So I went onto the balcony, I lived on the 6th floor of an apartment building, feeling horrible due to suspecting my wife of something that she didnt do. But when I looked down, I saw a man in his boxers hanging onto the edge of the balcony with his fingertips. I started stomping on his fingers in a rage, but he just wouldnt let go! So I went inside and got a mallet. After a few hits, the man finally let go and fell down. However, he landed in a tree, and was unharmed!!! So I went inside, blinded by rage I lugged the refrigerator to the balcony and pushed it off the side. Bang! I got him! After a while, I realized what I had done and in my depression I flung myself off the balcony too. And that is why I am here.”

“Interesting story” Peter said, and led the man out of the tent. The man left the tent, and the second man came in and started telling his story: “Im the athletic type, I especially enjoy workouts. I dont like publics gyms due to hygiene though. So I bought my own gym set, and I set it up in my room on the very top floor of an apartment building. After I finished setting it up, I had a very nice long workout. I went onto the balcony to cool off a bit afterwards, but the rail gave way, and i fell down. The next thing I know, im hanging onto the balcony of one of the lower rooms. I was amazed by my luck, and was just gathering the strength to pull myself up when a man appeared above me. I dont know why, but he got very angry when he saw me, and started stomping on my fingers! I had just cheated death, so there was no way I was letting go. Finally he stopped, and disappeared, i could finally breath a sigh of relief. Then he came out with a MALLET!!!! I just couldnt hold on, and fell the rest of the way down.
But then a miraculous thing happened! A tree stopped my fall, and I was completely uninjured! I was bewildered by my luck, and was thanking God for this divine protection when I looked up and saw a fridge falling towards me…”

“Thank you or your time” Peter commented, and led the man out. The third man came in and started his story: “Peter, you wont believe this story! Imagine this, your sitting naked in a fridge………”

This week the challenge is…
