THE RUMOR MILL
All the Powers in the IR have spies.
All the spies, are busy spying and sending back reports of what they have found.
Of course, the spies are not able to find out everything.
In many cases, the Power being spied upon is feeding false information to the spies.
In many cases, the spies are caught and have their memories and knowledge magically altered.
And of course, there are always double agents.
About 1/3 of what follows is true information, based on the Templates sent to me, that you are able to discern from your spies.
About 2/3 of the information, is false, given to you by a Moderator who is lying like a dog.
It is up to you, to figure out what is the truth and what is - to use the American term - baloney.
