I can confirm that the newspaper in question is indeed "Geoto's Wrath" by Dollerboy2000, I also remember how Lifeman9 a.k.a Ranmyaku was very eager to prove his meddle as an upcoming aspirant for Geoto. Good to see you´re still around!
It is a real shame to read that doller didn't get along with Verina, I was quite fond of the both of them actually. But, frankly, I'm not surprised things ended the way they did.
I remeber Verina as a very virtuous person and always prepared to work out things diplomatically, however, if she felt like her integrity was comprised she would be really offended (and rightfully so). She had a warm heart and made the recruits feel at home.
Dollerboy2000, I remember him as being very keen and loyal to the cause from the first moments he stepped in these halls.
I was very moved by his passion for Geoto and created a personal signature for him concerning his work of the Newspaper.
(Something I have rarily done: Neo_manni, Dollerboy and blazewild received one each, Verina received a personalized award for her comradery)
Also some insight into the Aerodu VS Geoto mentality: The ACC (Aerodu Council) was the first established form of self-government in the First Paxian Saga.
We as Geoto's rather steal a good idea then think of a bad one ourselves, Nautica followed shortly.
We quickly, under leadership of PoV (who is by my knowledge the absolute first leader of Geoto, and a damn fine one at that), took over their hierarchical structures and became an effective organisation in a short ammount of time. However, we rapidly grew more popular then Aerodu, perhaps because of our creativity and newbie friendly atmosphere, and that's when the tensions between the Skypeople and us rose to breaking point. I think it was Wizeman and Verina that managed to keep the eager recruits in check on our forums.
In retrospect some credit was due to the Aerodians, perhaps it is time to make up for these past mistakes?
Nautica was generally less abrasive and less hotly tempered as the proud Aerodians, I remember how we attempted to sway the Nauticans to our side against Aerodu by allowing them to use our signature/award system, albeit using their own symbolism, the effects were noticable but unfortunatly Aerodu prevailed. I shortly left following the First War.
It keeps coming back to me in waves, i'll probably remember some more stuff later!
EDIT: Findecano Nenharma was also a prominent figure in the first era of the War, though I can't remember any individual contributions except concepts for my own work, perhaps someone else does?
