01.00, 4 August and farewell to the City Boys

Postby Pedros » 02 Jan 2012, 20:26

Happy New Year everybody.

diplomat42's end has come at last, as they head for an underground bunker away from the trouble and strife (and the fighting too!) They weren't helped by the fact that none of the hidden centres they had intel about were anywhere near them, and they were never able to come to grips with either the Nurses or the rough old East Enders. Good struggle though, diplomat.

No retreats this time, although the Theatre Goers lost a unit in Leicester Square as the seemingly inexorable march of the Nurses goes on. The East Enders, however, are beginning to score serious points as well.

Builds for 01.15 are due by 1800 GMT (1300 EDT) on Tuesday 3 January.

East Enders (gordoncomstock)
The Eastenders displaying our usual lack of pronuncative precision last orders: doesn't everyone pronounce Hackney with an X? :?

To avoid future problems the merry band of eastend ruffians stuck in Hackney for half and hour spent there time in a hastily convened street elocution workshop. "Hoxton is to Hackney as Acton is to Haringey" their new powers of annunciation request

Hackney to Cambridge Heath.

While the the eastenders 3A currently sampling the dubious delights of South London have been so traumatised by there brief sojourn in the aesthetic wilderness of Elephant and Castle that they would like to do a very brisk Lambeth Walk into, well, Lambeth.

Elephant and Castle to Lambeth.

In an effort to finally stamp out the parasitic city boys from this otherwise wholesome :roll: neighbourhood

Bishopsgate to Threadneedle St
Finsbury Circus support Bishopsgate to Threadneedle St.

In other news:

The the boys in Old Street have got carried away going round the round about:

Old St hold

and the boys in Spitalfields, having tired of the Knicks knacks on offer there, have decided to decamp to the covered market at Leadenhall.

Spitalfields to Leadenhall

[ A very happy and prosperous new year to you all]

Firstly apologies - last time's map got itself up there somehow. So you do have a shiny new SC in Waterloo WarSmith. Unfortunately, since you lost Lambeth your count is correct.

But no, so far as I can see Leicester square went down. As it's recorded in the orders it stood with two supports, but was overcome by a 2A with two supports - 3-4

Thanks diplomat, and also Wyse who PMd me. It also means that the East Enders have one of the Nurses' builds. Altering it now.
