Newspaper for Allied Armed forces

07 Jan 2014, 13:14

Ever wondered how's the war going and are we in Berlin yet, but can't find the answers from your local newspaper or from the radio. Soldier! Here is the latest copy of the Stars and Stripes, daily newspaper of U.S Armed forces in the European Theater of Operations.

We deliver you the latest news from the front lines and from the campaign map. Our aim is to boost up the morals of the Allied soldiers and make the Allied side and community more fun to play in H&G. So grab your Garand or Tommy and make some history and find yourself on the front page!

Image

Be updated, stay Allied and read Stars and Stripes!

Not all the text is readable; it's some nice filling we need to use for now. Maybe one day we can add full stories too, but for now we need to play and have fun with headlines only.
"I only read the headlines and check the pictures". Then this is just for you and hope you liked it.

Thank you all for the nice feedback :) I have my notebook and typewriter with me now in battle in case of some juicy stories: "Stop the press!"

Yes, actually a single-panel would work well with the other content, not taking too much space or work as a distraction agains other content. But we'll leave that to editorial decision to make :)

This paper is how it is and Donder's is the same. There's a bit of background to it, maybe he'll chime in and fill you in if he sees fit to do so.

That would actually be a great news item for the next print. 8-)
If a short story of an heroic battle can be added it would be even better.
Names of players can be mentioned of course.
Send it to Annsi :)

This was what I wanted it to look like ;). But Robotron said it was better if I would just write it as a normal text.

Here's the latest number. Funny, I was just about to publish an issue telling that war is on halt, but then I got a phone call from the HQ: "Stop the press, it's on again!" Fuuuuuuuuuuuu need to redo a bit. lol. Anyways here's something special: first interview from Gare Maritime, so no filler text. Hope U can read this tiny font :) Thank you Captain Raul for the interview.

Got a better story to tell? Send me a private message and lets paste and post it. 1000-2000 characters will do. Did something epic in what battle and what was the server day?
