Santa Rupert Is Missing-Or Is He?


by Elizabeth Emerald

Seasons Greetings Tiny Villagers! This is Elizabeth Emerald reporting live from our very on TVCO News Room. I have a saucy yet shocking story to report to all my tiny viewers. After being trapped in a tiny blizzard for 4 days, my field reporter, Scott Stone, made his way to the snow fort in tiny kingdom and reported to me that "Santa Rupert is not missing". That's right, Tiny People, as usual another government cover up!

It all started back in July when Manny Moonstone met his death behind the Starlilly66 village rock, leaving Cindy Clay stone single and bitter. It is a sad story Tiny Viewers, but Cindy has turned into the village harlot! Yes, she has been caught on numerous occasions with Rupert's right hand man Sean Shale Dow. at the Salad Shop sharing a bowl of croutons. Jenny Jade has finally had enough of Sean's infidelity after catching him and Cindy smooching under the villages New Year Clock, and she has kicked him out of their little Villa. Jenny even hired a Holiday Hoodlum to break in and steal all the village resources from the storehouses so Rupert would fire Sean for negligence.

Oh what a tiny web we weave!

Of course, Ozzie helped Santa Rupert hide out in the tiny snow mountains,yes he even let him take off riding Ozzie's best reindeer raptor. He is in the Tiny Snow Caves where Ozzie stores his abominable snowman eggs. All this cover up so Regina wouldn't find out about Sean's Tiny Shortcomings. All this wasn't even the worst of it.

The biggest cover up in Tiny Kingdom this season was committed by Representative Matt and his dreaded understaffed bureaucratic Tiny Watch team. Honestly who would ever fall for Bart "Oh sorry Scott" Hard the caveman. And really team, all the messages telling them that they won a penguin egg and Happy Holidays. Sounds to me as though our Tiny Watch team got a little saucy this week, too.

As always this is Elizabeth Emerald bringing you TVCO News with a Hugh Splash of Humor. Stay Sober out there..

Low Prices Mean It's Stocking Time

Market update for October 8th GMT/UDT

by Nanakins

Whoa! Check out what Lumber is selling for: 3340! Everyone on Stone Street is talking about the low price on lumber. It hasn't been below 3,500/thousand for over 30 days.

Wise merchants will stock up on lumber at this price, it won't last long!

But that's not the only good news today! Rocks, stones, wood, and woven fur join lumber with very low prices today. It's a great day to upgrade, even fur is just above average. Please note, even at these low prices, all of the products in the Mystic Fire Store are huge losses, and one of the items at the Canoe Store is still running at a loss.

Stock the warehouses!

Here's how the prices chalk up until the stroke of midnight GMT/UDT:

Rock Bottom Deals - In Rocks

Market update for September 19th GMT/UDT

by Nanakins

It's a great day to buy rocks. It's a pretty good day to buy food. It's always good to be in the business where the commodities are having good days!

Stones, Wood, Lumber, Fur, and Woven fur ... they're all high, though. Alas.

Today's Red Ink Report is reflecting a lot of those high prices, too; there are 11 stores on it today.

Falling Prices Give Buyers a Respite

Market update for September 17th GMT/UDT

by Nanakins

Except for fur, all the prices at market fell, and buyers are scurrying around to fill their new Crane Warehouses and arrange for more shops. Stone Street Market is so busy that officials are beginning to worry if they can keep up with all the purchases! Even the above-average price of stones was met with smiles - it's nearly 2,000 lower than yesterday.

Experts agreet it's just a respite in an otherwise high market, so enjoy the low prices today and fill those warehouses!

Even the  Red Ink Report shows some things to be grateful for, there are only 9 stores on it today.

Wood Sets New Record Price Today

Market update for September 16th GMT/UDT

by Nanakins

We're all wondering, "Why did wood set a new record price today?" It's the height of the summer! Maybe it has to do with sudden market demands from upgrades and space-related construction. Market old-timers are sniffing this one out, it seemed so unexpected.

Upper Echelon Marketers will want to watch out for the Red Ink List today, the Magic Temple Shop's Tall Pillars are in the red. {What?!} This is the first time since their restricted introduction that they have had the ignominious distinction of appearing on the Red Ink List. 12 other basic shops join them today.

Here's how the prices chalk up until the stroke of midnight GMT/UDT, with more red chalk than not - again:
