Well it seems this may already be the end of New Mesopotamia. The region crashes everytime I load it (even the backups). So baring some godly intervention, this will be my last post for this region :angry:

<td valign="top" width="36%" align="justify">At mid-day yesterday, disaster struck. Electrical equipment across the city ceased to function. Citizens were stuck in elevators for hours. Citizens are not sure what caused this massive power reduction so quickly, one citizen remarked "I live by the hill where Cyrus built his new tower and right before my electricity went out I heard a loud hum that tappered off, like in one of them there sci-fi movies on tv. Well I think the Mayor has something cook'n up in dat dar cave behind the tower. My husband went to work there 2 days ago and I haven't seen him since." <br><br>After much discussion, the citizen went on to say "I think that Mayor of ours is working with the Aliens." This report doesn't know when Aliens became a hot topic in New Mesopotamia but I've been hearing that Cyrus does have some odd experiments cooking. Later in the day, a brand new power plant came online. It seemed to come out of now where.<br><br><img src="http://img825.imageshack.us/img825/7906/mushdammamar76313099992.png" height="300" weight="400" alt="Image Hosted by ImageShack.us"/></td>

<td valign="top" width="38%" align="justify" style="border-left: 1px solid #000000">This morning, at a large press conference, Mayor Cyrus unvailed yet another building. This time it was a Monument, to himself of course. "This Monument will stand for all to see across New Mesopotamia. Let everyone come and gaze upon my image and leave donations in the boxes outside."<br><br>This report thinks he has some investigating to do. How is Cyrus putting up buildings so fast? Where is the money coming from?<br><br><img src="http://img163.imageshack.us/img163/5186/mushdammaaug46513100029.png" height="300" weight="400" alt="Image Hosted by ImageShack.us"/></td>

Only minutes after the unvieling, the ground started to shake and a tower started to raise from the ground! Cyrus says it will be his new "Mayor's House" where he can "watch over my Empire and ensure the safety and happiness of all my citizens."<br><img src="http://img580.imageshack.us/img580/2583/mushdammamay29201309788.png" alt="Image Hosted by ImageShack.us" height="200" width="300"></td>

I think not.<br><br>In related news, it seems that all the water and power plants in the city have been replaced with odd machines that make a low level hum and, as one citizen puts it, "leaves me feeling all tingly inside." Some reports say that these new machines are using a power source that is "out of this world".

<td align="center" colspan=3><i>Editor's Notes</i>: As you can see, I'm trying to take a slightly comical twist on this region. Everything, or most anyway, will be from the perspective of the local newspaper. As I love the funny news stories that show up in game, I'll be sure that I can get some more of those types of headlines into the local paper as well.</td>

<td valign="top" width="36%" align="justified">Today, Mayor Cyrus takes office and promises changes are on the way. Amongst the changes, Cyrus has determined that there will only be one ruler for the entire New Mesopotamia region, stating “and that’s me. If you don’t like it, my office doors are always open to listen to my citizens.”<br><br>This reporter thinks the change is a good one, less nonsense to deal with. But citizens are questioning Cyrus’s decisions. Time will tell.</td>

<td valign="top" width="38%" align="justified">When asked what other changes are coming, Mayor Cyrus says “You can expect great expansion into our new world. The simple life will be reserved only for those in our farming lands. All other citizens are hereby [requested] to focus their energy on construction and technological advancement.”<br><br>I asked, “What about the news?” Cyrus responded “Of course we’ll still have room for one or two reporters.” This reporter is thankful that there is only one reporter currently employed at the ‘Periodical Narrator’.<br><br>Time will tell if Cyrus’s policy changes will be successful.</td>

<td valign="top" style="border-left: solid thin #000000" align="justified">Citizens in disbelief that Cyrus takes 100% of vote<br><br>Cyrus's Open Door policy a blessing or curse?<br><br>New Mesopotamia founds new cities of “Ashnan Village”, “Nissaba Port”, “Tammuz”, & the capital “Mushdamm”</td>
