    Great sea tale

    This story has everything: character who jump off the page, clearer than life, and the best description of a ship and her crew enduring a terrific storm. My favorite Conrad.

    An exciting tale of human nature

    Conrad's masterpiece chronicles the doomed voyage of a steamer in the Indian ocean. It is full of excitement and danger, but is most successful in its portrayal of the personalities and struggles of the captain and his mate. Of all of Conrad's works, this is my favorite.

    Stormstar to all ooc

    Please do not advertise on our territory! Because you are just as disrespectful, as the cat who advertised on yours. Actually, even more disrespectful. Why? because after I made an apology, you went ahead and did that. I do not know who posted the post, advertising for my clan, but it shouldnt happen again! And please take the post dont from our clan. I will tell the cat who posted the advertisement to take it off this clans, if you do it first. (Once again, i do not know who posted it so it might take till tonight!) Thanks for your cooperation --Stormstar (this was ooc btw)

    What? (This is From Stormstar)

    Im very sorry about the advertisement in your camp. I dont know who did it but have a small hunch. My warriors or apprentices are in need of a talk that I wil give them. And FearClan is not a lousy clan. Once again, I apolgize for whoever wrote that ad in this clan. And I will make sure whoever posted that post will take it down. (If it was one of our warriors or apprentices. Who knows, maybe someone posted the ad to make war....) --Stormstar
