PostNews from the Void!

Quite often when I am online, I like to make up little News stories to keep the players in my group entertained (especially when trading), so I thought I might make a few stories here Smile


Top story tonight:

Fierce battles were seen today in the Alexadria system as Corsairs and Outcasts tried to finally take control of the system as the main pirate organisation. Most of these scuffs have been sighted from miles away, and many cruisers have been seen frequenting the areas around Planet Darius and the Perdicass Depot.

All freelancers are advised to stay away, although this is only temporary, as they all seem to be leaving trade convoys alone and just going after each other instead. These homocidal acts from these powerful pirate organisations could finally secure the system for one side, once and for all. Again, the Europa Navy caution all Freelancers to stay away from these areas.

Comfort, AoF Void news.


News updates will be posted at a later time. If this just sounded really stupid be quiet about it will you? Any fans would be appreciated Very Happy

An angry mob has been sighted today, after an evil man by the name 'Albert-Hash' was seen reporting the news in the usual reporter, Comfort(s), place. They claim to want their favourite man back on the news cast, and will do anything within their power to get him back.
Now, if you don't excuse me, I think I'll go join them. DEATH TO THE IMPERSONATORS!!!

For any of you who have ever used the anallergy "When pigs fly", then today, you might have a few things to do.

The reason for this? A genetics laboratory in New London was overtaken by a few hundred protesters, protesting that it was "Cruel to animals and to Mother Nature". Subsequently, all animals there were freed, Flying Pigs included.
It is not quite clear what reason the Scientists were given to engineer Flying Pigs, but Bretonian Police who searched the laboratory later found biological controllers and a "When Pigs Fly" anallergy detector, and are currently working on the theory that the Scientists just liked irony.

Many residences in the area are also being harrassed by flying, looting Monkeys, a herd of Unicorns and a tea-drinking Albatross that goes by the name of George. If you see any of these animals, please report the sighting to nearby officials. If your daughter has explained that the horn is just glued on, don't trust her. If an Albatross talks to you in a British accent, then give him some tea and tell him to wait there.

After an extended rest period, your beloved writer/editor/basic copyright owner of his own newspaper is back, and with more fictional serious news for your enjoyment.


Today, a major operation to take out the Rogue bases in both California and New York ended in total and utter faliure when the Battleships and Cruisers in the fleet sent to destroy the bases got stuck in the fields surrounding them. According to an expert, the spaces between asteroids in the fields was dreadfully miscalculated, ending in the ships flying around for hours ramming everything in sight.

This is a major embarrassment for both the Liberty Navy in itself, and the Geographers that planned the operation. This sort of thing hasn't happened since Cutscene #206, in which the Osiris kept ramming into asteroids in the field that it was flying through. This scene was later cut, but is available for viewing here.

During the operation, however, they did manage to shoot down a fair few number of Liberty Rogue ships. "The Navy pilots shot them down like flies," one commander noted from his bridge during the failed assault. "They just couldn't stop laughing at us trying to get out. It was both an embarrassment and a pleasure to see and hear that scene," a wing leader remarked.

The fleets managed to escape unharmed, save one ship which got wedged between a rock and and a hard place, and is currently awaiting pickup by a DSE Hauler. Everyone aboard, including the commander, just wants to go home. After that ordeal, no one can blame them.

If you see a Dragon, you might just not be high!

According to some pilots in Babylonia space recently, there have been Dragons flying around the collapsing star near the Opis Research Base. "They were flying with nothing there, man... it was like they were just floating bodies of plasmoid energy..." said one witness of the dragon appearances.

One was caught on tape apparently, but one religious man ended up thinking it was porn and flushing it out the airlock. The men plead that they were in no way intoxicated at the time, but their believability was seriously shaken when two tonnes of Narcotics were found in their hold. As per usual of most arrestees, their plea was: "It isn't ours, dude!"

Just in case this is true, several news agencies (and by several I mean just ours) are going to stake out the place for the next few days to look for these so-called 'Dragons'. Now, if you don't excuse me, there is packing to be done, coffee to be made and Mix CD's to be burned for our forty-eight hour stake-out.

Tonight I looked up into the sky, and saw the most spectacular scene imaginable. Tonight I was also sent to hospital for severe damage to my Irises and Corneas due to exposure to intense light. That's right, people, the light from that supernova of the Omega-11 sun I mentioned in my first article has reached Stuttgart! It has also reached Omega-7, but not even God could see through that damn cloud.

It is indeed a beautiful display, but unfortunately it is unviewable. Every single person who has viewed it has gone temporarily blind, some permanently. Pilots in space have done this, and most of them didn't make it back to port. Memorial service for these stup--I mean brave pilots is next Wednesday. Pirates have also been recorded smashing into planets in record numbers, prompting the Rheinland Police to take action and sell tickets for the fireworks display of crashing LWB and Hessians. Other House Police and Naval forces have been doing this a lot of late, and the localised Rheinland Police "Just wanted to try it out," as was joked by Senior Lieutenant Furtfranken.

The Rheinland Govermant is warning everyone to stay away from this system, but since almost their entire Naval and Police force is decimated from the last (and ongoing-ish) Nomad war, nobody really thinks this could be a credible threat to their passage into the system.

So, come on people, BLIND YOURSELVES WITH ME!!

Today miners from Planet Pittsburgh were quickly evacuated when a Deep Space Engineering experiment on Maine went horribly wrong. In a re-enacment of the Texas Incident of 500 AS, the DSE experiment crews were testing some new Jump Gate technology, which subsequently went up in flames. The Radiation and blast wave of this particular incident was tiny compared to the Texas Incident, but still quite large, engulfing half of Maine and sending Radiation storms towards Pittsburgh.

Contact was lost with the Researchers a few moments after the explosion was seen by a trading convoy delivering supplies to Pittsburgh. A space traffic controller had this to say; "The traders were just joking about some Rogues that tried to jump 'em, and suddenly one of them shouted, 'Holy s***, Maine is lighting up!' and suddenly everyone was yelling and trying to figure out what was going on. It was a complete frenzy, and only a few knew that some of our guys were up there running some tests. We already knew what was happening, but no one seemed to be wanting to listen. Panic is NOT a pretty sight, I can tell you that."

Panic attacks really can be deadly, as now many are dieing from Radiation poisoning from lack of action. It took at least an hour for the first evacuees to get off of the planet, and by that time there was already major fallout on the side of the planet adjacent to Maine at the time. Many are still being assesed whether they might make it through, but so far, many more may not make it through to Pittsburgh's tommorow.

If your God is believed dead, you can't believe in anything anymore, nad you really don't have any values anymore, then you only have one thing left to you - to drink yourself stupid! Of course, many people hear this cry and follow the herd.

There are of course, a few lesser people who decide to swim upstream instead. Who are these people? Well, nobody quite knows yet. But, they have been leaving their mark on New Berlin youth, by killing and burning several New Berlin bars and Nightclubs with their own Alcoholic (and extremely flammable) beverages. Drapings of this are very easily set alight, as any Arson Magazine-readers will know. That's right, they have a magazine now.
Sick but cynical, as they always say.

Rheinland Police and Military Forces have yet to identify any names or parts within the organization, and the fact that they're under-funded, under-manned, and over-stretched in their own space doesn't help anything. Although the organisation is killing people, it seems to many that they are really "Providing a service to our fair Colony," a thought in many citizens minds who are tired of having to clean up after a weekend night of drunken antics of annoying youthful partying.
Considering most participants in this most hated of weekly events have been disowned by their families, nobody really mourns for them - except their Goth Girlfriends, but they're too busy grieving over themselves to do much in the way of a Eulogy.

The way it's gonna go? Nobody knows. But it seems that the dark side of New Berlin may be in for a firestorm.

Breaking news!: The economic booms experienced lately in Omicron Alpha have taken a sharp turn for the worst. Shipment after shipment of Cardamine and Optronics have come flooding through the respective bases of the Sleeper Ship Hispania and Planet Malta, the residents have become tired of the commodities and have started hungering for things more afield.

Many traders who came to this System too late have been seen sitting in the streets, coffers help out, hoping for that occasional sympathetic dollar to come their way. In response to this, Outcasts have started roving "Death Patrols" in the streets and nearby hills to push out the squatters, hobos, bums, tramps, and various other begging and stealing types. Their officials have said repeatedly, "Shove off!! You came for the riches, and you came too late. Life's a gamble, and you just lost. Any more anallergies I need to put out there before you go away?"

Many have tried to leave, but for some reason, just can't - probably due to the fact that they have nothing but a few sympathetic dollars and soiled puppy-dog eyes. If they had some more, they would probably be allowed to stay.
The Outcast Undertakers, however, are having a field day. "The Government pays for these burials, because they don't want them stinking up the streets! Now THAT, my friend, is business," said one individual who was in the process of Embalming for some reason.You'd think they'd make it cheaper.

The Saints are coming! Yes, you heard it right, the Saints are back - and with a vengeance. Fearsomely protecting their 'Holy Rock' in Sparta (Or pet rock, as I prefer to call it.... but I can't, 'cause I'm a professional reporter) with guns blazing almost as fiercely as their hearts. Re-swelling their ranks with new recruits, this old a noble(-ish) organization is here to bring help to all who need it, rather than wan-ton destruction or crazy raids on Pirate bases for almost no reason other than dramatic effect.

Many other clans have tried to pierce the fierce armor of their ships, and many have perished in their failed attempts. The way this reporter sees it, you should never cross a Spartan, much less a Saintly one. If the events of last night were anything to go by, then ignorance is bliss, gentlemen. Just stay away, and they will not touch you. But, knowing you people, you'll probably just hover around the pet rock until Kingdom come waiting for the Saints members to come back online. Well, good for you. Even if you are suicidal.

And, as for some of these new members, well, they are alright guys. Tobi is, well, a good PvPer as well as being Tobi. And Retribution is a bloody Retribution-king! Nice training Regime, I'd imagine...

Mars attacks! (well, not really..)

In their version of a hostile Earth takeover, Nomads have taken the planet formerly known as Dante in the Omcron Major system. This, even being a hostile incursion, has prompted no response from any House Police or Navy. Their simple response was, "We simply don't care. Rogues are of no concern to our interests, except when they're being wiped out. Then, maybe a few less people will be killed. Just hope they don't screw up my chances of becoming an Ace."

However, many outlaw factions operating in conjunction with the Liberty Rogues, including Outcasts and Hackers, have sent patrols to investigate the Nomad defences, but no trace of them has been seen or heard since. The defences, presumably, are most probably non-existent. Given the Hackers and Outcast rate of survival in fighting, especially against Nomads and their Valkyrie N1's, the speculation is limitless.

The system, being linked to the Tempest Nebula by an unlocated wormhole, is in an unfortunate position to defend against the Nomad invaders, as they are so close to their own home ground. The Zoners and Rogues, however, are at least two systems away from any House system, and therefore, out of range of quick backup. Not that Rogues would get much backup from these systems, but it was worth a mention.

For now, everyone is just watching in fits of laughter, as the extremely horrible pilots that once tried to kill them now try to kill Nomads, who are dominating them worse than the Agiera and DSE Convoys.

An Rehabilitation Asylum for Second-Generation Reavers was raided tonight, all occupants taken back, and all staff ruthlessly raped, skinned, and eaten alive. The Second Generation Reavers, of course, were then all killed as well. This would come from the Reavers philosiphy of; "If they don't work out the first time, they don't work out." Sources speculate that the Reavers just didn't want the Pilots rehabilitated and then to work against them, as they know locations of bases and have knowledge of tactics and loadout.

Bounty Hunters have been hired to chase after them, and are still in close pursuit. Some have been gunned down, but most are surprisingly still alive. "They're trying to use Guerilla Tactics on us, but are failing. Lets face it - these guys are just better at a full frontal assaults," mentioned the Leader of the chasing pack. Engagements are imminent, as they have crossed into Unknown 2, an actually known Base System of the Reavers.

Last reports on the base that caught the full brunt of the attack will be repaired in up to 5 mods. The base in question would prefer to stay anonymous, even though most reporters already know the name. As for me, I have only one thing to say about the name:

Nyaah, nyaah, nyaah, nyaah, nyaah, not gonna tell you!

If you bomb them, they will come. Or at least that's the rule with Nomads.

Bombing runs in Omicron Delta against Nomads have attracted a lot of attention from the Nomads - and any attention from a Nomad is bad attention. Their newly developed Highbreds (Or Hybrids, for anyone who can't make sense of it) are blasting their way through every Anubis MK2 and Conqueror sent at them. Order, Monkey and Robot strategists have worked out many new strategies aganst their incursions, but so far, all have failed.

The newly developed Monkey Battleships are being hastily assembled for use in Convoy protection, but are nowhere near large enough in number to be sent into active duty in Omicron Delta yet. If they are, Monkey Scientists and Tacticians say that, "They could be shot to pieces by Nomad Patrols easily when they're alone, or even worse - captured and used against us by the evil menace."

Until these new Battleships are mass-produced to sufficient numbers to combat this Nomad insanity, all planetary bombing runs will be suspended. Since all crews operating in the system will be on leave for an extended period of time, Alcohol, particularly wine, will be an extremely valuable commodity in this system. Bring it, and they shall drink! Feel free to join in the beer-fest too, it's for everyone Wink

Gas is passed! H-Fuel fields in the Sigma systems are nearly run out, with only a year or two left, and there is a new crisis in the colonies: Fuel Shortages.

The GMG (Gas Miners Guild), Samura, and Kishiro, the three main companies resposible for the mining and distribution of this gas among the five colonies, are, as told by one representative; "We are in deep s***. If we run out now, every Navy patrol and Trade convoy will be brought to a complete standstill. Sirius will collapse under the economic and protective strain. Fuel rationing will be a near impossible task, with billions of people with spacecraft flitting about our Galaxy already. We, I will say once again, are in DEEEP S***."

In response to this, all GMG explorer convoys are now more frequent than ever, and are as well-equipped as possible, searching and discovering new systems in the hope that new gas reserves will be found in time. All convoys transporting H-Fuel around the place will be even more protected as well, in a bid to keep the precious fuel from harm. Outcast and Corsair attacks have increased as well in the Sigma systems, trying to take some gas for themselves. One message heard over comms from an Outcast in apology said; "Hey, everybody needs it! Down with money, up with combustion technology!" Corsairs just said; "Up yours, GMG!" The GMG thought they were Rheinlanders for a while, but figured it out when they saw that they were flying the M-7 Class Centurion.

The engineers of Kusari are looking for new ways to increase the fuel-efficiency of the current H-Fuel Drive, and are also researching into Chicken-poo powered engines. It's been done.... but not too effectively. Solar-powered drives are also being developed, but these are deemed impossible to function in Nebulas or clouds, or even with just a weak-starred system.

As for me, I'm stockpiling H-Fuel right now. And YOU can't have any! HAH! Although, the highest bidder can have it.... for a while. Interest gathers on it too. Come and buy, if you want your kneecaps lopped off.

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. And what one says, another will follow.

After a major improvement in Pirate tactics, a rise in Bounty Hunter fatalities due to this, and paycuts due to no particular reason other than corruption and hatred, Bounty Hunters all over Sirius are defecting back to their notorious gangs of miscreants. "More money and more freedom! NOW DROP YOUR CARGO!" Said one defective Bounty Hunter, who just happened to be on a patrol near my ship at the time... annoying sunuva defective sprocket! In any case Sirius is becoming more unpredictable than ever, and the Bounty Hunters just don't help. I mean really. Changing RP in the middle of your round just ain't kewl!

But in all seriousness, Pirates are getting stronger by the day, and all House Navies must compensate for the increasingly large and better-trained opposition. Training, technology, repitition of training, increasing firepower, even MORE repitition of training, and just pure plain dumb luck are all that stand between these brave men (and possibly women) and the cruel, cold vacuum of space.

As for you, audience, you probably don't care. To you, this just means more killing opportunities for you and your Justice Mk1's. Or possibly something more advanced, I don't know what you carry. Just kill them already. KILL THEM. *Foams at the mouth, grabs a Daumman Shredder and blows the camera crew apart*

Never eat the yellow snow! (it's dangerous - you don't know what food dye that really is! Allergic reactions can be deadly.) But, of course, not everyone listens to the best advice.

As was shown by a recent civilian vigilante attack on Buffalo Base, owned by the Liberty Rogues. The civilians that pioneered the raid were gunned down with ease, but not for lack of planning. Or even firepower. No, it was for lack of listening. Not a single one of them knew what was in those Badlands. Why? They were from Kusari. And every Libertonian knows, a Kusarian never listens to any problems outside their own House or trade routes. (For most other Houses, it is the same, but we might as well insult who we can.) Not a single one listened to the news stories (me, of course), or the rumours (partly me, but mine are all insults and accusations), and walked straight into a Death Trap. They even ignored the huge, flashing, neon sign that read:

WARNING: DO NOT ENTER. NAVIGATIONAL HAZARD. SENSORS AND VISIBILTY REDUCED WITHIN. PIRATE PATROLS REGULAR. ENTER AT YOUR PERIL. AND ENJOY THE FAIR NEXT WEEK. VIVA LA PITTSBURGH MINERS.

And, alas, they were struck down.Not by the Liberty Rogues in their Bloodhounds as the civilians raiders expected, but by Outcasts. Outcasts in Stilettos. The Civilians in Hawks (with Flashpoint armament) didn't stand a chance against the Pyros and Dragoon onslaught. Cut to shreds. And we have it all on video, because I followed the poor bastards. I als regret to inform you that I was in an Armored Transport at the time and could fire back as effectively as a rock. If only there had been someone to throw me.

But, since the massacre happened on their turf, the Libertonian officials, for no particular reason, have FINALLY decided to go offensive against the New York Menace. "The Rogues shall be wiped from the heartland of our fair Liberty. It shall be cleansed of the infestation, never to return. Unless there's a party, then we're completely unarmed. So crap." Hopefully those not-so-clever-Rogues won't read the huge, flashing, neon sign out front.

Pittsburgh Miner Massacre!

Somehow (hopefully not due to the last broadcast), Rogues have successfully attacked and destroyed a massive jubilation festival for the Miners of Pittburgh. Somehow, Rogues apparently learned to take advantage of their surroundings and read the huge sign mentioned in the last update (again, hope it wasn't me who tipped them off). None of the LPI or Liberty Navy at the scene were armed, and this just sealed their fate even more. All patrols were cut off for the festival, which sealed their fate EVEN more. As if to make it even worse, half the people at the scene were trampled even before the Rogues got their first pot-shot out.

When the alarms were raised, everyone just fled for the hills. Even thought they would be even more exposed up there, some random Miner just yelled, "RUN FOR THE HILLS!", and everyone followed like the mindless Libertonian sheep they are. Needless to say, it as the worst massacre since the Dante invasion.
Still makes me giggle too. Rogues getting blasted by Nomads, how could you not laugh at that? Anyway, back on the subject.
These Rogues were surprisingly intelligent, and had the tactics of madmen. Not Reavers-type madmen, but madmen nonetheless. Their usual armament may do nothing but slightly scratch the usual ship hull, but are devastating to bare flesh. They burned through one, maybe two people at a time, cutting swathes through the crowd on the hilltop.

All in all, it was a huge massacre. But, the Rogues succumbed to their own stupidity in the end. Suddenly, they started dropping out of the sky, without apparent reason. All was silent. Later, it was found, the H-Fuel in their tanks had dried up. They didn't even notice the warning alarms or the flashing lights. Too transfixed on their easy prey, they didn't realise they were about to fall prey to gravity. Oh well, stupid is as stupid does!

They can see into your future, and yet they won't tell you what they see without full up-front payment, and even when you do pay they say it so mysteriously you can't understand what they're on about anyway, which is why absolutely everyone in the sector hates them. Yes, you guessed it - Psychics.

Now, if I could remember what I was actually meant to be telling you about - instead of just bashing Psychics (Which I love doing, don't get me wrong, but it's not particularly constructive and it doesn't get me paid. When do I get paid anyway...?). Ah, yes, that was it!

It's the new craze sweeping through the Five Houses - Psychic readings! Yes, I know, it sounds ridiculous, but everyone believes in scams anyway. Everyone just loves to know their future, as it usually holds something interesting. And even if it doesn't, they love to listen anyway. From getting blown up by the next Pirate they encounter, to making the greatest trade profit of their life, to joining the navy and getting their vasectomies.

These Psychics are making such a profit that they have collected into their own union, and have subsequently bought the Luxury Liner Hawaii, just so that they have a more aesthetic location to do their readings. The fact that it's much more dangerous to get their doesn't deter their customers however, and their escorts are as powerful as their will to be conned out of their cash. Of course, the fact that the Psychics predict nothing but death is a slight mystery to some people, although to most who frequent the area, it isn't in the least.

The Outcasts and Corsairs in Sigma-19 really don't mind the extra traffic, and are reaping the rewards of ransoms and Luxury Goods. Fortunately a few Lethal Weapon and Die Hard incidents have plagued these Pirate Factions, making the trip a little more easy while the Pirates scan their holds for any escape pods that are labeled 'Good Guy' or 'Vigilante'.

Did you know Butterflies can fly Pirate Destroyers? So did I. Want to know how? Well, so does everyone else, so get in line with impatience and doubt.

A Pirate Destroyer (also listed under cargo ships, if you destroy one that is) was seen by Outcast spectators flying erratically through the Tohoku system, chased by several Pirate fighters firing everything they had at it. The chase was quite amusing to Outcast pilots, who just sat back and watched while pirates fought to simply get the Destroyer in their sights. "I don't know who was flying that thing, but boy did it piss those Pirates off. I swear, that's the first time we have ever not engaged Pirates on sight. It was just too hilarious to pass up watching!"
With this spectatorship going on, I also interviewed pirates about this incident: "No radio transmissions were being answered, and everybody who was chasing wondered what kind of mastermind could fly like that - it seemed so creatively insane! It was complete insanity down here. Believe me, Nomads could have invaded the planet and they would have run right back into the depths of space just because the amount of people running around for no reason."

The Pirate Destroyer in question, strangely enough, looked like it was trying to dock with a large asteroid several times. This asteroid was later identified as a previously unknown Dragon base. God knows how I haven't discovered that one yet. Although, the base seemed to be a bit unresponsive, especially with the fact that not even its turrets fired on the passing precession. Radio transfers later confirmed that the Dragons inside were laughing maniacally. Nobody can quite tell why not.

As for the pilot of this congregation, it turned out to be a single, small, remote control Butterfly. tThe radio transmissions used to control it were traced back to the area of my publishing studio. A search is being conducted by Pirates (secretly, of course) in this area, but so far no one has been accused.

Who knows who flew this monstrosity through the far reaches of Kusari space, mystifying a wing of hard-bitten Pirate veterans. It could have been almost anyone.... including me. Smile
