<td valign="top" width="36%" align="justify">Late last night, reports started coming in that new construction had started atop the hill. This morning, the town awoke to a new lake built on the hill!<br><br><img src="http://img192.imageshack.us/img192/3255/mushdammadec19121309738.png" height="200" width="300" alt="Image Hosted by ImageShack.us"><br><br>As with everything else, no gift from Mayor Cyrus comes without a catch. 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>

<td valign="top" width="38%" align="justify" style="border-left: 1px solid #000000">One citizen was quoted "When I saw that there tower come up from the ground, I thought it must be the end of the world!"<br><br>This report thinks Mayor Cyrus probably has other motives, but the end of the world... 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". Where does Mayor Cyrus get all his wonderful new toys?<br><img src="http://img820.imageshack.us/img820/1107/mushdammadec21211309789.png" alt="Image Hosted by ImageShack.us" height="200" weight="300"></td>

<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>
