This issue's The Cook is something different. We're holding a contest to fill the above comic strip with Funny. Be creative and think of something funny to fill the speech bubbles with. The winner will be awarded with 3 months of premium and a contest medal!

So now that you now what's at stake, here's how you enter the contest.

1. Come up with the funny.
2. Write down your text in the following format -

Title = blahblah (optional)
#1 = blahblah
#2 = blahblah
#3 = blahblah

Where "Title" refers to the title, #1 refers to the first speech bubble, #2 to the second etc.

3. Send your entry via private message to Army of GOD.

The contest will run until June 14th or 14-06 in the European date format, the absolute deadline is GMT 13:00 (that's 01:00 pm for you americans) after which no new entries will be accepted.

The winning entry will get his texts on the comic which will be published in the next issue of the Newsletter, in which the winner and top 3 will be announced.

Did I mention the premium prize? ;)

Good luck everyone! May the cook hat be with you.

It has been another busy three weeks for Conquer Club, including another exciting event hosted by the entertainment team, the third whac-a-mod tournament! Many CCers and mods highly enjoyed this competition and below you shall find a joint article written by me and new discussions moderator and newsletter writer iamkoolerthanu about the fun had during the tournament. Also, this edition following on from the controversy of the last edition's article about the Chatglove, I have written a revised review of the plug-in, which I hope people shall appreciate for giving the plug-in the respect it deserves. elfish_lad and deathcomesrippin have also provided us with free-lance articles about Conquer Club experiences, From the Pit... and Yellow's Rampage. That is not all as we also have an interrogation of foundry moderator thenobodies80. Enjoy!

Hello everyone! These past weeks have been slow in the Foundry. Or so it would seem, but under the surface lots of things are brewing... However, our beloved Foundry Foreman MrBenn was having some RL troubles, which means no new maps have been put in beta or quenched. Let's hope he can return to his duties soon!
Anyway, in this issue we have Dolomite's history article, Bison King's Map spotlight on the Flanders map, and of course the old favorite, maps in development. Enjoy!

Well... a couple of things here Ms. Fox (not speaking "offically" of course):

a) Nag is not that sexy. Oh. He is "sexy" in the general scheme of things (like all CC staff writers) but nothing to write home about over and above the rest;

b) You have always had a hot plug-in and all have known it (anyone who is hot anyway).
