If you want to settle within 10sq of me, that is negotiable, before you move there. I reserve the right to remove settlers.
The same goes for collecting rare T3-resources (Rare Herbs, Rare Minerals); harvesters may be removed. You can hunt NPC's and keep your hides and animals parts though. Also, rare T3 resource patches within 10sq are claimed. Settling in a way that situates a city closer to them does not generate a better claim. If I am not harvesting, harvesting by others is negotiable. You can see the difference by the lack of an occupation army. If it concerns rare minerals, a NAP and sharing are negotiable.
Be sensible, and ask first. It's also polite, and you have a big chance I will say yes.
"We are Malazan. We remain so, no matter the judgement of the Empress. Is this enough reason to give answer? No, it is not. Compassion is never enough. Nor is the hunger for vengeance. But, for now, for what awaits us, perhaps they will do. We are the Bonehunters, and sail to another name. Beyond Aren, beyond Raraku and beyond Y’Ghatan, we now cross the world to find the first name that will be truly our own. Shared by none other. We sail to give answer. There is more. But I will not speak of that beyond these words: “What awaits you in the dusk of the old world’s passing, shall go... unwitnessed.” T'Amber's words.
They are hard and well might they feed spite, if in weakness we permit such. But to those words I say this, as your commander we shall be our own witness, and that will be enough. It must be enough. It must ever be enough."

[18:18]<MicroMe> VAN!!!! uuuummmmmmm you have some chocolate on your elbow hun!
[18:19]<Vanerin> I can't seem to lick it off
[18:19]<MicroMe> *dashes over and licks it off*
[18:19]<Vanerin> Oh good!
[18:19]<Vanerin> I was wondering where I was going to find a dwarf to do that
[00:35]<Twinklett> tells ck a bedtime story
[00:36]<Captain Kindly> Oy. Is it a good one?
[00:36]<Twinklett> shhhh, .listen...
[00:36]<Captain Kindly> (ok)
[00:39]<Twinklett> there was once a little elf
she was scared
[00:40]<Captain Kindly> of what?
[[00:41]<Twinklett> her mum lost her
[00:42]<Twinklett> she searched the woods
[00:43]<Twinklett> under the trees
[00:44]<Twinklett> i forgot...
[11:19]<Twinklett> love trikes
[11:22]<Captain Kindly> Twinks, somehow I have the idea you'd love driving a tank too
[11:23]<Smoking GNU> with rockets for a bra?
[11:23]<Twinklett> ill go blow up king sig for being a tight ass
[11:26]<Twinklett> sips her tea and plans her attack..

[13 Dec 03:35]<Rhiann> someone who needs their own body work right there^
[13 Dec 03:35]<Garthen> Yeah, it was a couple of years later I met my first great healer/teacher
[13 Dec 03:35]<Garthen> You may hate this, but oart of his regimen is Rolfing
[13 Dec 03:36]<Garthen> Man, that's some painful stuff
[13 Dec 03:36]<Garthen> "Here, let me pry your diaphragm away from your ribs"...
[13 Dec 03:37]<Vanerin> Yikes!
[13 Dec 03:38]<Garthen> I exaggerate..but if you don't know about Rolfing, Google it
[13 Dec 03:38]<Rhiann> no hes not, that's about right
[13 Dec 03:38]<Garthen> It actually helped a great concert pianist overcome arthritis, iirc
[13 Dec 03:38]<Garthen> Roflmao!!
[13 Dec 03:39]<Garthen> Rolfing is a very small part of what he does, to be clear
[13 Dec 03:39]<Rhiann> it's not fun, i had a serious hip flexor problem, too much running, and had a "friend" work on it.
[13 Dec 03:40]<Rhiann> would of taken his head off his GD shoulders if i could of
[13 Dec 03:40]*Vanerin first wondered if there was a connection between "Roflmao" and "Rolfing"
[13 Dec 03:40]<Rhiann> hahah!
[13 Dec 03:40]<Garthen>
[13 Dec 03:40]<Garthen> Quite the opposite, in fact...
[13 Dec 03:40]<Vanerin> I guess there is a connection as they are opposites
[13 Dec 03:40]<Vanerin> heh
[13 Dec 03:41]<Rhiann> no laughing in rolfing
[13 Dec 03:41]<Garthen> Rolfing is more like "wish I could roll around on the floor in pain, but your hand is jabbed so far into my body, I can't move"
[13 Dec 03:41]<Rhiann> HAHAH!!! serious crying and screaming.
